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:

July 16, 2016: Up On Rocky Top

The Dow and S&P are at all time highs, Happy Days Are Here Again! However, what do we see when we look beneath the surface?

  • Price/Earnings (P/E) ratios are at levels normally seen before major pullbacks
  • S&P earnings are scheduled to fall again this quarter for the 6th straight quarter, yet stock prices still rise
  • Companies are beating expectations, but only because they have lowered expectations, bought back shares and used a lot of “one-time charges” (for the nth quarter in a row)
  • The world is awash in a debt it can’t pay
  • Europe continues to struggle on many fronts
  • China is becoming more belligerent in the South China Sea
  • The Middle East is still the Middle East
  • Energy prices are falling
  • World trade is slowing
  • Etc.

Here’s the point. The market can continue to rise due to buybacks and government/central bank stock purchases, until it can’t. One day (no one knows when), this market must take a big hit. Are you prepared to protect what you have and profit when that day comes?
