You’re Doing it Wrong

“How is anyone supposed to make money in this market with stocks performing so badly last year?” I was in Orlando in late January at a market technician’s meeting. One of the presenters opened up the floor to questions. That’s when an older guy busted out that gem. And he was dead serious. The collective...

Buying Stocks Sucks

The bandwagon’s getting crowded. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and Jefferies have all increased their targets for U.S stocks within the last week. Not a bear in the bunch. The financial media have moved from touting new highs to rooting out the last skeptic standing. Famously bearish analysts are coming around to...

It’s Time to Sell Copper

Dr. Copper is crumbling. The versatile industrial metal best known as a bellwether for worldwide economic growth has finally hit the skids… I warned you last month that copper was fast approaching an important inflection point. Now, the Cyprus crisis was kind enough to tip copper over the edge. It fell hard in late Sunday...

Cyprus and Your Bear Market Brain

On Friday, no one cared about Cyprus. This morning, a measly $13 billion bailout for an island nation your honor student can’t even find on a map is holding world markets hostage. Most Asian markets are down more than 2%. European stocks are off a little more than 1%. Stateside, futures have dropped less than...

The Next Computing Revolution is Here

“There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” That bit of knowledge is courtesy of Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corp. He said it back in 1977 — just a few years before the age of personal computers began in earnest. Now, I’m not trying to give Olsen a hard...

Time to Follow the Smart Money?

The dumb money always gets suckered into the market at the wrong time. You don’t have to dig up your old history books to find the proof, either. Just look back a few months to December. Your average investor took his money and ran as far from stocks as possible because he was worried the...

Overcoming Analysis Paralysis

Your thoughts on this market remind me of the famous Wall Street saying: “Now is always the most difficult time to invest.” You hate stocks — but you’re all-in. You’re skeptical of gold — but all your money is wrapped up in metals and miners. You’re willing to ride this rally until it begins to...

Closing the Gold Gap

After averaging a record $1,669 an ounce in 2012, Bloomberg notes that gold is off to its worst start since 1988. But that’s nothing compared to what’s happened to gold miners… Mining stocks are having a no-good, horrible year. Prices of gold miners have fallen further and faster than physical gold in 2013, widening a...

Forget the Predictions…

Predictions–both good and bad– are a huge part of the financial landscape. You’ve heard most of them. After all, they’re shouted out, chopped into sound bites, and then repeated ad nauseam in the media’s echo chamber almost every single day. But just in case you’ve forgotten to pay your cable bill since the financial crisis,...

A “Cautious Bull” in Action

Stocks continue to move higher. But you’re on the sidelines. Your worry list is just about full. The economy isn’t looking all that great. And you’re not sure what to make of it all. That’s why I want you to take a step back. There’s something you need to know… You don’t have to marry...
