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.

November 5, 2016: Can We Talk?

This week we dove deeper into the topic of what was likely to happen post-election, depending on who wins. Bottom-line, probably nothing good in either scenario…

We are at a point where there just isn’t much that anyone can do to turn this ship around. What would be required is much too painful and contrary to our current path that it is not politically practical. In order to give the appearance of progress, we will likely continue to try to prop things up with more debt, but all we are doing is delaying the inevitable. This means that outside of a possible Fed increase in December, I don’t think we will see interest rates rise for years, making retirement increasingly difficult for savers. Combine that with likely low returns for the stock market for the next decade or two, and you have a situation where the average person is not going to be able to live the retirement that they have planned. Therefore, this requires a change in strategy if you want to achieve your retirement goals. Times have changed and we can either adapt to this new reality or hope it adapts to us. (Hint, the first choice is much more likely to succeed…)

November 21, 2015: Managing Your Money In A 9/12 World

The attacks in Paris are a reminder of the randomness of life. While obviously there is nothing that compares to the human tragedy suffered by the victims and their loved ones, there are many other effects as well.

I was thinking about the impact this would have on everyone in this country if this happened not in Paris, but New York. How would markets respond? What if the attack was even worse? Again, the human tragedy should be the main focus of such an event, but the impact on the financial lives outside of New York could be substantial as well. The question is, are you prepared for such an event? How can you prepare? How should you respond? These questions were discussed in this week’s show. It will also be the focus of an upcoming class, “Managing Your Money In A Post 9/11 World”. 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.

Stay safe.

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!

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 4, 2015: Financial Independence Day

Today we discussed the Greek default in more detail. We also spent time looking at US markets, which continue to weaken.

On a more philosophical note, we explored current economic conditions in the US and why they both weren’t getting, and couldn’t be getting, any better. It is not the most optimistic view, but unfortunately it is one which continues to appear to be accurate.

Given the state of the country and the world, we talked about how you can learn to use the market to achieve your financial goals. As a note, I will be teaching one more class this summer. The topic will be, “Creating Your Own Financial Independence”. In this class I will be covering a wide swath of topics, from how the market really works, to overviews of every major asset class that you can trade and invest in. We will discuss both generating short-term income, as well as creating and protecting long-term wealth. If you would like to come out, call us at 480.634.2301. Mention this blog and get two free tickets to the class. I hope to see you there.

December 20, 2014: Do You Believe In Santa Claus (Rallies)?

This show was recorded on December 15th, before the Fed meeting and before the huge run-up at the end of the week. The show focused on the fact that the market had been falling since December 8th, which was a bad sign going into what I believe will be a weak Q1-Q2 2015. We spent some time going over possible reasons for the market pullback, focusing on concerns that the Fed would increase rates faster than the market expected given the perceived stronger than anticipated jobs report on December 5th, although the oil story, Russia and Greece were also possible factors. What was noted in particular in the show was the importance of the 12/17 Fed announcement and its impact on the market. If we got a rally after the meeting, we still would have a chance to buy some cheap Puts for protection and speculation. If not, things could get ugly fast. Well, we now know that the rally came in a huge way. This gives additional support to my contention that this market is almost, if not totally, Fed-driven. This will come back to haunt us once the market comes to believe that the Fed will raise rates. I don’t think the Fed can raise rates, but that said, it is the belief that will drive the market, not the reality. From my perspective, this rally does not change any of my concerns for 2015, but it does give us some time to buy those long-term Puts.
