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 […]

Which Supermarkets Will Survive?

Amazon.com shocked the investing world by acquiring the high end grocer Whole Foods Market. Which supermarkets will survive as Amazon enters the $800 billion a year grocery market? CNN thinks the move will not work and purchasing Whole Foods will be Amazon’s Waterloo.
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. With the deal to buy Whole Foods, the online retailer now has a small slice of the grocery market (about 1.2%), which is dominated by a handful of firms like […]

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. […]

How to Make Money and Not Lose Your Savings

Anyone who has a little extra cash should be routinely putting something away for a rainy day, college for the kids, retirement or simply a better life. Traditional advice is that you can accept more risk and invest entirely in stocks when you are young and you should convert to less risk as in buying bonds as you age.

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. At the beginning of this year we asked, “Does extraordinary uncertainty lead to extraordinary market risk.” At the time we were writing about Trump’s plans for economic stimulus and the associated voodoo economics of his proposals. 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 […]

Will Politics Kill Wind Farms?

We just wrote about the bleak future for coal usage for electric power production. This is primarily because natural gas is cheaper and cleaner.  The Trump administration has promised to bring back coal production and appears to be intent to achieving that goal by any means possible. But natural gas is not going away as an energy source. That leaves nuclear and renewable energy sources as the remaining opponents of coal. From the U.S. Energy Information Administration here is the breakdown of U.S. electricity generation by energy source.
In 2016, about 4.08 trillion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity were generated at utility-scale […]

Bleak Future for Coal

A strong message from Donald Trump during the presidential campaign was that he was going to reduce environmental regulations and bring back jobs in the coal sector. That is probably not going to happen. In the USA coal mining companies like Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, Cloud Peak Energy and Alpha Natural Resources produce about 491 million tons of coal a year. This may be the peak of their production and not the trough because power companies are relying more on natural gas and renewable energy sources. They are even closing coal burning power plants. And that includes are areas where […]

Moody’s Debt Downgrade Will Only Make China’s Problem Worse

For the first time in thirty years Moody’s has downgraded China’s debt. Bloomberg discusses the ramifications of China’s downgrade from A1 to Aa3.
The downgrade of China’s debt by Moody’s Investors Service may push Chinese companies to borrow even more money from domestic banks as overseas debt becomes more expensive, increasing risks for the nation’s finance industry.
With growing indebtedness at home, compounded by a slowing economy, there’s a risk of a “negative feedback loop,” said Khoon Goh, head of Asia research for Australia & New Zealand Banking Group who sees state-owned enterprises and property developers feeling the biggest impact. The downgrade […]
