February 11, 2017: Performance Issues?

Over the last 30 years, the S&P 500 has returned about 10.35%/year. The average mutual fund investor during that same time earned just 3.66% per year. Over 30 years, a $10,000 investment matching the market would have earned almost $200,000. An average mutual fund investor, less than $30,000. The average investor left 85% of the money on the table, and paid for the privilege of doing so.

This week we began an exploration as to why the average retail trader performs so poorly, even in bull markets. To learn about just a few of these issues, check out this week’s show here:

August 13, 2016: Lies My Broker Told Me

Over the last 70 years the world and the world economy has changed dramatically, yet most peoples approach to the market remains the same. Despite no real returns for most people over the last 16 years, they continue to buy and hold stocks or mutual funds, waiting for the market to continue higher. They do nothing to protect their positions. That is not how to succeed in the market today.

In this week’s show we discussed some of these myths and faced some realities. If you want to know what to do now, check out this week’s episode here:

April 30, 2016: The Times, They Are A Changin’

On the show we often talk about how the market has changed and why new strategies are necessary if you want to reach your financial goals. We expanded that discussion today to get to more of the root economic and structural changes that require these new strategies.

We also continue to hover right around 2100 on the S&P. This week (this show was recorded on 4/25/16) there are at least 2 key pieces of news that will tell us much about this market. The first is the Fed meeting on 4/27, the second is GDP on 4/28. If neither of them take the market significantly higher over the following few days, the next leg is likely down. If it does break higher, it just means the subsequent drop will be that much worse when it does come. Make sure your prepared before the crash, don’t try to react afterwards!

March 5, 2016: Europe On -$5/Day

This week we covered many topics:  currency manipulation, growing jobs, tax policy and regulation; and that was just in the first segment!

Here is the bottom line. We are looking at years, if not decades of low real growth (and when properly defined, of real contraction) and the next step is likely to be negative interest rates. In that environment, how can you reach your financial goals? If bonds pay nothing (or charge you) and stocks grow 1% or less overall (for the last 15 years they’ve compounded at 2%, and that’s with a market at an all time high), traditional approaches like pensions, buy and hold, IRA’s, 401(k)’s, Mutual Funds, are unlikely to yield a comfortable, or even survivable retirement. Given that Social Security has been running a deficit since 2010, which will only get worse, I wouldn’t count on that either…

In the old days if you had a million dollars, you could put it in a CD, make 5% a year and have $50K/year to spend without drawing down your savings. To do the same thing going forward will likely require $5 million, and most people are totally unprepared for this world (plus, how far is $50K going to get you these days?) In this show we go through the assumptions and math behind these assertions. We also talked about the importance of 1940 on the S&P (we have now closed above) and the importance of 1990-1995 as the next level to watch. Finally we discussed why the market has been going up, and why you need to watch out for early April… Check this week’s show out here:

February 27, 2016: For Our Mutual Benefit

On Next Week In Stocks, we spend a lot of time talking about risk management. This week was no different. We went through a number of stocks and asked a very simple question, “If you own this stock, should you sell it now or should you hold”? The reality is that you should have made that decision before you bought, but the vast majority of retail traders never think this way.

In the markets, there is no certainty, only probability. You are going to be wrong sometimes, so you need to determine when you are going to get out of a stock (or any investment) before you buy. Again, very few investors think this way. They just assume that stocks will always come back. They don’t.

One of many problems with mutual funds is that you can’t really control when you get out; there is no real risk management. On this week’s show we discussed this and many other problems with these funds. We also talked a little politics. Check out this week’s show here: 

Given this week’s topic we are going to be doing a special class, “Outperforming Your Mutual Funds”. We will discuss alternatives to giving your money  these funds and hoping for the best. As we have discussed many times, the market is likely to be volatile, but unlikely to actually appreciate more than 1-2% a year for the next 10-20 years, given today’s valuations. Mutual funds are likely to do worse. If you would like free tickets to the class, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about it on the Next Week In Stocks website. I hope to see you there!

November 7, 2015:

This week we focused more on the micro than the macro. We talked about the real rates of return that people are getting in Mutual Funds, 401(k)’s, etc. and why they are so much lower than the overall market. We also asked some important questions, such as, “If you haven’t reached your financial goals with the market at an all time high, when do you think it is really going to happen? What happens to your financial goals when the market does fall 50-70%?” The reality is that most people are trading and investing in the wrong instruments, the wrong way. We talked about some alternatives that provide for better potential returns and superior risk-management.

We are also going to be conducting a special half-day class on this topic. If you would like free tickets, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about it on the Next Week In Stocks website. Hope to see you there!

June 6, 2015: You May Approach The Market…

Today we talked about four approaches to the market, three of which are commonly used (and that inevitably fail) and one used by consistently profitable traders. If you want to improve your results, check out this week’s show. If you want to learn more about a better approach to the markets, take advantage of our free half-day class by clicking on the link to your left. We also talked about what was going on in the world.
