December 10, 2016: Lies My Media Told Me

A wide-ranging show this week. We discussed, in general, the danger of listening to the market “experts” on TV and in the media. We also talked about the idea of allowing companies to bring back their offshore profits to invest in the US, specifically focusing on Cisco. The fundamental issue we face in the long-term is that these companies lack good ideas on how to use the money, and that spells trouble for the US and world economy over the foreseeable future.

December 3, 2016: What The Phoenix Housing Tells Us About The Economy

Kind of wide ranging today. The market right now is at an inflection point. Will it drop, or is there another leg higher. No one knows. So what do you do? Prepare for both.

We also discussed a recent Wall Street Journal article about what the Phoenix market says about the national economy. WSJ says it means the national fundamentals are strong. I drew a different conclusion…

Also got in a Big Lebowski reference…

August 27, 2016: Cristal Ball…

Warren Buffet once said, “I try to buy stock in businesses that are so wonderful that an idiot can run them. Because sooner or later, one will.” I would say the same thing about countries. This election and its aftermath is going to be a nightmare…

Today we pulled out the old crystal ball. We spent a little time talking about the deteriorating finances of the country, then we looked at what was coming. We talked about the Fed, stocks, bonds, oil and a little gold. In general, this market may hold up through the election, even through next spring (it also might not), but then it could get pretty ugly.

June 18, 2016: Many Happy Returns

This week’s theme comes from an episode of the classic TV series, “The Prisoner”. It deals with not knowing who is in charge and how reality is manipulated. We also discussed the importance of improving rates of return in your trading and investing.

June 11, 2016: Horses For Courses

Today we talked about big picture strategies. One of the problems that most retail investors face is that they only have one arrow in the quiver:  buy stuff and hope it goes up. To be successful in the markets requires (to mix metaphors) more tools in the toolbox. Today we talked about some of those tools. We also reviewed a Wall Street Journal article talking about how some big time money managers (including George Soros) were coming back into the the market, betting that it is going to fall.

When this show was recorded, the S&P 500 was back over 2,100. We talked about making money in this situation using Put options. Last year, this trade worked every time (if you chose the right option and exit strategy) and we discussed whether or not it would work again this time. One time it will likely fail, but as of this writing, it would have succeeded again. All this assumes that you know which option to pick, etc., but it has been a pretty easy trade for educated traders.

May 12, 2016: “What Are You Going To Do About It”

Last June 13th on this show, I said that the S&P500 appeared to be topping out. That has turned out to be accurate. The market is net down about 1% since then, but it has been down as much as 15% and never up more than about 1%. I have been reflecting on a question I often ask applicants to the Academy. “If you knew the market was going to go down before it happened, would that be useful”. People inevitably answer yes. I think the answer is no. The problem is that people don’t know what to do when it goes down, they just keep doing what they’ve always done (buy and hold) and hope that this time it is different and that it won’t be that bad. The reality is that you need totally different skills in a down or sideways market, skills that almost no retail traders have. This is why so many investors fail to reach their goals. If they get lucky and move out of stocks before a downturn they may be okay, if they don’t, they are devastated. Plus, if they move out and sit on the sidelines, they have no ability to make money as the market falls.

Historically, moving to fixed income (bonds, CD’s, etc.) has been an option, but not today. Yields are simply too low. If you invest $500,000 at 2% yields, you will earn less than $30/day. That isn’t going to pay many bills.

Given current valuations, the market is unlikely to return more than 1-2%/year over the next 10-20 years (some years it will crash, others will soar, but net/net, it probably won’t go up much, although it could fall and not recover). Interest rates are unlikely to go up for years, so “safer” investments won’t be an alternative either.

This week we talked about why this is my forecast and what skills you will need to prosper if I am right. We specifically addressed a recent column that suggested our only problem is that people are saving to much and spending too little. I think this is missing the point…

April 2, 2016: Fundamentally, We’re Screwed…

This week, we got back to basics. We discussed the fundamentals of the economy, the market and the political race. The fundamentals don’t look strong for any of them…

The show was recorded on 3/28, before Fed Chairperson Yellen’s testimony on 3/29 and the jobs report on 4/1. On the show we laid out 2065 as the key level to watch on the S&P 500. As of this writing (3/31), it is still holding. The market will do what it is going to do, but I don’t think it has much more upside. The close on 4/1 and the Monday follow-through will tell the tale. Without a solid close above 2065, we may be looking at another leg down. It is hard to see any catalyst for the upside outside of a potential weak jobs report that keeps the Fed on the sidelines. Also, the buyback blackout period we are now entering suggests further weakness.
