Is Fracking Technology Using Up the Last of the Oil?

Four years ago we wrote to invest in oil shale or rather companies that use fracking technology to extract oil and natural gas from these deposits.
We suggested that one look at investment in sustainable fracking technology. Recovery of petroleum from oil shale deposits has allowed the USA to reduce its reliance on foreign oil to the lowest level in more than twenty years. Today the USA imports forty percent of its oil, down from sixty percent just a few years ago. If predictions hold true the USA will continue to increase oil and gas production from fields in both the […]

Tension is increasing on the Korean peninsula as North Korea races to perfect nuclear arms and the means to deliver them by missile as far away as the United States. As the North Korea situation escalates what should you buy and what should you sell? First a little background.
What Is Going On in Korea?
Ever since the Korean War fighting ended with an armistice in 1953 troops have lined both sides of the demilitarized zone, ready to resume combat. Meanwhile the South has become a democratic country with an advanced economy. The North has remained under dictatorial rule of the same […]

Time to Reallocate Your Investments as Trump Agenda Weakens

You may have been one of the lucky ones who jumped into the market with both feet the day after Donald Trump was elected president. If so you have probably made money. Investors were excited about the prospect of economic stimulus from infrastructure spending, lower taxes, deregulation and a mountain of offshore corporate cash coming back home. After spiking downward the night of the election the S&P 500 has gone up 400 points or 20%. And if you picked your stocks well you have done even better. But, it is apparent that despite lots of hype that the Republican president […]

Are Banks Ready to Break Out?

Hopes of deregulation are part of why financial stocks are up. And investors may be moving some money out of an overvalued tech sector. The bottom line is that US bank stocks hit a post-crisis high according to The Financial Times.
US financial stocks closed at the highest level in nearly 10 years on Tuesday as hopes for deregulation of banks grow and investors ditch technology stocks for the previously unloved banking sector.
Shares of some of the country’s largest lenders, including Citigroup, Bank of America and JPMorgan, climbed more than 1 per cent on Tuesday, pushing the S&P 500 financial index […]

Do Technical Signs Predict a Crash?

The stock market keeps going up despite what would appear to be overpriced stocks. But eventually every rally ends, sometimes with bang and sometimes with a whimper. Market Watch writes that a technical flag indicates the market may just have entered a danger zone.
The S&P 500 keeps closing just short of a critical level in the high 2400 range. This is similar to what happened going up to the 2000 dot com crash and the 2007 crash that ushered in the Great Recession.
This is investing via technical indicators. And if you are buying into an index fund that tracks the […]

Are Coal Companies a Good Contrarian Bet?

Despite the conversion of many electric plants to natural gas and away from coal, the USA still consumed 800 million tons of coal in 2015, the last year for which totals are available. We wrote recently about the bleak future of coal.
Electric companies have been switching plants from coal to natural gas and closing coal plants. Big consumers like GM and Toyota insist on clean energy and won’t use coal even if environmental regulations are relaxed. That is the bleak future of coal.
Peabody Energy is the largest coal producer in the USA as well as in Australia. The stock sold […]

Three Potential Black Swans

Despite concerns about stocks being overpriced the markets keep going higher and higher. And that means stocks all over the world are going up. Every time this sort of market euphoria occurs it is eventually followed by a day or reckoning. Market Watch writes that the recent breakout in stocks should not be trusted and cites three potential black swans. Black swans, by the way, are unpredictable or unforeseen events. They discuss this issue after nine global stock indexes have topped out at the same time.
There have been 39 times when each of those nine indexes has closed at multiyear […]

What Investments Do You Want to Own Next Year?

When you follow stocks in the news there is an element of breathless melodrama. Nellie has been kidnapped and is tied to the train tracks. The train is coming. Will the hero get there in time? One moment the answer is yes and the next moment it is no. If you fall for the melodrama of stock reporting you are caught in a gut wrenching never-never land of worry about next month, next week or even tomorrow. A healthy alternative is to pick investments based on a longer term view. What investments do you want to own next year and […]

Your Best Bet May Be the Gaming Industry

A lot of attention has been paid to the handful of high tech stocks that have been leading the market higher and higher. But are these really the best places to put your money? Your best bet may be the gaming industry which is up 50 percent this year. Likewise home builders, hotels and resorts, health care and even railroads have done better than the high tech darlings. Part of this appears to be investors rotating out of the high priced tech sector and part is that the economy is not doing all that badly and profits are being spread […]
