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 […]

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 […]

What Investments Should You Choose Right Now?

There is always a risk in giving or receiving investment advice. Many times do we read that an expert is making suggestions based on “what their charts show.” There may be useful information in their research but there is also a huge fudge factor. This is because the “expert” is not really giving you specific advice but only relaying what their “chart” might be predicting. Meanwhile, as the market is heading downward every day, you are wondering this, what investments should you choose right now?
General versus Specific Investment Advice
General investment advice, when it as some value, is based on past […]

How Much Will Your Investments Be Worth in One, Five, and Ten Years?

Investors are concerned today as the market corrects, the trade war threatens to be long term, the Trump tax cut effects are wearing off, and earnings are taking a hit. But, one needs to put things in perspective when looking at long term investing. When making investment decisions, ask yourself how much will your investments be worth in one, five, and ten years.
Stock Market Investment Perspective
The New York Times has an interesting article in this respect. Despite recent losses, stocks are riding high when you look at the longer term.
Lately, the markets have been rattled about the prospect that a […]

Why Is There a Flight to Quality Investments?

The US stock market is down a bit as investors are flocking to quality stocks, as reported by CNBC. What is going on? Why is there a flight to quality investments?
Both before the market’s October sell-off and in the two-week bounce, investors have shown a clear preference for “quality” stocks.
Not the same as cheap “value” stocks, these are companies with less debt, stable businesses and some defensive characteristics in a tougher market or economy.
A grouping of such companies by Citi surfaced the likes of Walmart, McDonald’s, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, Amgen and Quest Diagnostics.
While not predictive in itself, this pattern […]

Could Your Investments Lose 30% of Their Value Next Year?

Earnings have been driving growth in the stock market. A trade war is developing and we are entering the 9th year of an economic expansion. CNBC writes that 20% earnings growth is not sustainable and predicts that stocks could plummet 20% to 30% next year.
“You could be looking at the first 20 percent-plus decline in the S&P since the financial crisis,” the firm’s chief U.S. strategist said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Futures Now.”
His worst-case scenario is a 30 percent plunge next year.
“Our primary list of concerns is on the earnings front,” Clissold said. “Earnings growth north of 20 percent isn’t sustainable, […]

Switch Your Investment Focus from Growth to Value

Unless the stock market stages an unexpected late rally, the month of February 2018 will be the first February since the 2008 market crash where stocks have gone down instead of up. Inflation is gaining momentum and interest rates are about to go up from years of historic lows. The unique financial conditions of the last several years have been ideal for high tech growth stocks, the FANG group especially. But, now that conditions are changing, growth stocks are overpriced and at risk for a major correction. The better choice for many investors is to move into value stocks and […]

Should Investors Be Scared as Markets Cool Off?

Did you lose a lot of money in the 2008 stock market and real estate market crashes? If so you probably wish you had listened to that little voice in your head that said it was time to take profits and sit on cash for a while. It was not like there was no warning. Look at Google Finance and you can see how the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust peaked in late 2007! For the next twelve months the market was in an ever-steeper decline.

Anyone who listened to that little voice and got out saved […]

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 […]
