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

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. The rationale for investing in biotech is that a company will invent a new medicine or product that will change the world and generate huge sales in the process. The common reasons for avoiding biotech investments are that the vast majority of prospective products never make it to the market and that evaluating the prospects of a biotech investment can be very […]

Meanwhile the technologies involved in industrial scale manufacturing of solar products are becoming faster, more efficient, and cheaper.

Investment Risks of Holding Cash

An article on CNBC caught our attention. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans are stashing cash at home in fear of a recession according to the folks at CNBC. Perhaps they are trying to emulate Warren Buffett whose silent warning for investors is that his company is holding more than $100 billion in cash assets because he cannot find investments that he believes will be profitable over the long term at current prices. Or maybe they are thinking about the 1933 bank holiday when President Roosevelt suspended all banking transactions within 36 hours of taking […]

Investments for the Coming Recession

Have you thought about investments for the coming recession? What? Isn’t the market going to surge forward when Trump makes a deal in the trade war with the Chinese? Hasn’t the market defied every critic for years and years? The answers are “possible” and “yes.” However, every bull market ends. And, the ones that last the longest and run the highest often have the worse fall. As the economy cycles, we will see a downturn sooner or later. The bond market is betting on soon and on a downturn that will last a […]
