Beware When Shorting Stocks

Over the course of the longest bull market in history contrarian investors have again and again predicted doom and gloom and been burned again and again. As noted in the movie “The Big Short,” there are times when shorting a stock can be immensely profitable. But, choosing what to short and timing of when to do it are keys to making money with this approach.

When Do Contrarian Investments Work?

A recent article in US News and World Report looked at eight
potentially profitable contrarian investments. That got us to thinking. When do
contrarian investments work and when are they just value traps? In a recent
article we asked, are there any cheap investments left? In it we visited the
same issue from a slightly different viewpoint. Here are the contrarian
investments suggested Bank of America and reported by US News and a few
thoughts about each one as well as contrarian investing in general.

Are There Any Cheap Investments Left?

The ever-higher stock market has made lots of folks rich
and is worrying more than just a few. For anyone with money to invest in the
stock market right now, there is a real risk of getting in just as the bottom
falls out! We could be looking at a decade, like the one running up to the
Financial Crisis in which the stock market will be relatively flat. As such,
the task of the investor will be to find cheap investments with the potential
for growth. But, are there any cheap investments left?

Investments That Have Nothing to Do with China

Just the other day the stock market rallied on news that the USA and China were close to an interim trade deal. And then the market slides back on news that there would be delays and problems. Thus, any of your investments that have anything to do with China are being held hostage. In the short term, political gamesmanship is the major factor but over the long term, there are very deep and permanent issues that each nation is fighting for in this matter. A year ago we posed the question, what happens to […]

When Is the Time to Stop Investing?

No Profit Until You Take a Profit

You may be already wondering what this question is doing
on a website that provides help with investing and investments. But, there is a
point at which transitioning your investments away from opportunity and risk to
reduced opportunity but safer investments makes sense. We wrote recently about
the silent warning from Warren Buffett in that he is finding
few attractive investments these days and as a result is stockpiling cash. In a
more-immediate timeframe, Jim Cramer, the former hedge fund manager-turned TV
investment personality, always notes that you do not have a profit when investing in stocks until you take a […]

How to Evaluate Investments in Biotechnology

Biotech can be an investment sector where you can become rich and it can be where you lose everything. Knowing how to evaluate investments in biotechnology can make all the difference.
