Why Do People Make Bad Investments?

There are people who invested a few thousand dollars in Microsoft when it went public and saw their investments multiply in value 890 fold. And there are folks who invested millions with Bernie Madoff and lost everything in his Ponzi scheme. Ten thousand dollars in the initial Microsoft IPO would be worth $8.9 million today while ten thousand with Bernie would be long gone. Today we consider why do people make bad investments? Partly it has to do with the suitability of investments. CBNC features comments by Jim Cramer of Mad Money who says suitability is an investment concept critical […]

Is Dr. Doom Right about the Markets?

There are contrarians who continually predict a fall in stock prices. The old joke is that even hypochondriacs get sick once in a while. Thus by analogy we might say that even the perpetual naysayer will be right about the market from time to time. One of these naysayers is Marc Faber also known as Dr. Doom. According to CNBC he predicts that stocks are set to plummet 40% or more.
If the man often hailed as the original “Dr. Doom” is right, the stock market could see another “lurch” higher – at which point investors may want to cash out […]

The one sector of the retail market Amazon does not have a significant toe-hold in is the gigantic $800 billion a year grocery market. That is until now.

Herd Effect on Global Investing

We recently asked why aren’t you investing offshore. US markets are overpriced and Europe and other regions may have more room to grow.
Buy low and sell high is the age old mantra for investing. With all the hype about bringing jobs back home, reducing taxes and spending on infrastructure, the best deals in stocks today are not in the USA but in foreign markets. Why aren’t you investing offshore?
But can you really get better results outside of the USA? Harvard Business School discusses the issue and says that global investments are still a good bet but there is more to […]

What Do You Do When Market Winners Start to Lose?

The stock market rally this year has been largely driven by the high tech darlings known as the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google). The first take of many investors after Trump’s election was that industrial, construction related and bank stocks would benefit from his proposed economic stimulus measures. However, all of that has been slow to come if not absent as scandal and inefficiency drag the White House into the muck. Now the realization seems to have hit the market that the high tech darlings may be a little too highly priced and they have all dipped together. […]

When Do Terror Attacks Demolish Your Investment Portfolio?

Terrorists hit London just weeks after an attack in Manchester and investors look to see which way the markets will go.

Today we are looking at frequent terror attacks and their effects on markets. In short, when do terror attacks demolish your investment portfolio and when are your investments secure in the face of random acts of violence motivated by politics and religion? Market […]
