December 17, 2016: Losing Interest

This show was recorded on 12/14/16, the day the Fed hiked rates another 1/4 point. The market rallied into an area of supply and then immediately fell into an area of demand, and then rallied from there. It was a classic example of what really drives the market, supply and demand. It isn’t “news” or earnings, it is willing buyers and sellers.

In this week’s show we focused on that idea, as well as describing a little more of why I refer to this as a “hollow” market. The bottom line is this:  the stock market, housing market, GDP and government budget are all dependent on low interest rates. Whether the Fed continues to raise rates, or if the market raises on its own, trouble must come to this market. The problem is that the timing of this is unknowable, so we need to know how to make money in both up and down markets. We must also learn to manage risk in multiple directions. These are the macro themes of this week’s episode…

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.

Given this week’s topic I am going to be doing a special class, “What to do before the crash”. I will be teaching this class personally. We will also be offering a class for those of you who are new to the market to help you understand how it really works.

October 3, 2015: Fasten Your Seatbelts, We Are Expecting Turbulence Ahead…

This show was recorded on Wednesday evening, September 30. Today, Russia started bombing Syria, at least 17 bombs went off in one city in China, all Fed regions reported negative growth for the first time since 2009 and ADP reported that we have lost manufacturing jobs year-to-date, also for the first time since 2009. There is an Emerging Market crisis on the horizon, the EU is at risk, China is slowing down precipitously, the world is likely headed to recession and everyone wonders when the Fed will raise rates… Again, I don’t see the Fed raising before 2017 at the earliest and easing/negative interest rates are more likely than an increase. That said, if they do raise, lookout. It could get ugly in a hurry in both the stock and housing markets.

Overall the market continues to weaken. Watch the response to this week’s jobs numbers. My guess is that even if you get an initial bounce, it won’t hold and the down move will start again next week. But you may not even get a bounce.

Knowing how to invest in this type of environment is key. If you would like to learn more about what to do now, I am going to be teaching a special one day class: “How to trade and invest in a volatile market”. If you would like free tickets, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about the class on the Next Week In Stocks website. Hope to see you there!

July 25, 2015: Who Should Your Money Work For?

Well, the market continues to weaken and is unable to break out and hold new highs. This continues to suggest that the best money will be made on the indexes on the downside and our Put trade idea continues to work. Our previous projections that S&P earnings and the Chinese markets would weaken appear at this point to be accurate. Greece will remain an issue and Spain and Portugal aren’t far behind. I still think GDP for Q2 will also be below expectations. Net/net, I don’t see a lot of reason to be long the market right now.

Given all that, today we talked about various investment vehicles like 401(k)’s, IRA’s, 403(b)’s, etc. and whether or not they were really appropriate investment vehicles for most people. Unfortunately, the answer is “no”. Tune in to find out why! Also, I am going to be doing a couple of special classes this week on this topic at our Scottsdale campus. If you are currently in any of these vehicles and want to understand more about better alternatives, we would love to have you come out. If you would like a pair of free tickets, call 844.846.2663, but seating is strictly limited, so call now. When they are gone, they are gone…

May 30, 2015: Dude, Where’s My Recovery?

For five years, we have been hearing that prosperity is right around the corner. For five years, every turn of the corner has led to a blind alley. That’s not about to change any time soon.

This week we looked at why the recovery has not (and will not) come. As a note, for several weeks we have predicted that Q1 GDP growth would probably be revised negative, which it was on Friday. The only bright spot was that inventories were revised down, which could prop up Q2 GDP growth. However, Q2 GDP growth is still likely to be less than 1% , vs. current 2%+ forecasts.

We also did an update on Greece and China, including China’s activities in the South China Sea, (which we have discussed for months and which are finally starting to get some attention). We also looked at some non-conventional measures that suggest that markets are topping out.

Overall, markets are looking very weak. There is a lot of downside opportunity, but if you are in the market make sure you are protected; things could get ugly quickly.

September 20, 2014: Turning Point?

I’m sure that long-time listeners are tired of my general take on the market. For about two years now, with a few exceptions, I have generally maintained that the market wants to move up, but the downside risk is large. That may be changing. The market action after the latest Fed meeting suggests that the market may be topping out. There are no certainties in trading, but the probabilities seem to be favoring the downside. Make sure you know what to do to protect yourself and profit before the move down starts. Check out this week’s show to learn more about why I am becoming more concerned about the current levels in the stock market.

After an initial rant on the state of our government, we got into a discussion on Income Statements and Balance Sheets. A lot of our problems in this country come from the fact that no one pays attention to the Balance Sheet. The American consumer destroyed his Balance Sheet by borrowing too much money against an over-inflated asset (his house). This means he has no capacity to borrow now, no matter how much money the Fed creates or how low-interest rates are. The Federal Government then stepped in and borrowed in our names, destroying its Balance Sheet in the process (and putting each of us further in the hole). Businesses are now destroying their Balance Sheets by borrowing money to buy back stock to prop up their Earnings Per Share and their stock prices, instead of investing in new capacity and R&D. All of this means there are no savings left for us to call upon to grow our economy for years, if not decades to come. We haven’t just consumed our seed corn, we have consumed our children’s and grandchildren’s as well. We also talked about the difference between the rich and those with high-incomes, and the danger of confusing the two (as we constantly do in this country).
