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

Is Your Investment Story Profitable?

Successful investors have a story that drives their investment decisions. A prime example is Warren Buffett who notes that the U.S. stock market prospers on the back of a growing U.S. economy.

So, the man who is perhaps the most successful investor of all time has a simple story that drives his investing. Is your investment story profitable?

Should You Invest in the FANG on the Correction?

The long-running bull market is starting to correct. We, and many others, have suggested that investors may want to get out of growth stocks and switch to value stocks in preparation for a market crash or at least a painful correction. The rationale is that value stocks are companies with low debt, cash in the bank, and property unencumbered by excessive debt. However, the basis of intrinsic stock value is forward looking earnings. And, the best earnings in recent years have come from tech stocks like the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google-Alphabet).
