Biotech and Health Care Stocks to Buy at the Bottom

One has to be truly impressed with the selloff in biotech and health care stocks since July. Once the top performing sectors of 2015, they went from heroes to goats, so fast, it made your head spin. What I called “The ATM Effect” kicked in big time. That’s when frightened investors run to the sidelines […]


Keep Gilead Sciences on Your Radar

I am going to continue to use this correction in the stock market as an opportunity to put new names in front of you for inclusion in your investment portfolio.

Thank Goodness I Don’t Live in Sweden!

I recently found the chart below showing world tax rates as a percentage of GDP for the past 40 years. Sweden suffers the world’s heaviest tax burden at 51%, compared to only 27% in the US. The US has among the world’s lowest tax burdens in terms of actual taxes paid, which has been falling […]


A Very Bright Spot in Real Estate

I feel obliged to reveal one corner of this bubbling market that might actually make sense. By 2050 the population of California will soar from 37 million to 50 million, and that of the US from 300 million to 400 million, according to data released by the US Census Bureau and the CIA Fact Book […]

The Reception That the Stars Fell Upon

While we’re all sitting on our hands waiting for Janet Yellen to make her move, or non move, it is time to reminisce. My friend was having a hard time finding someone to attend a reception who was knowledgeable about financial markets, White House intrigue, international politics, and nuclear weapons. I asked who was coming. […]

The ‘Population Bomb’ Echoes

With the entire agricultural space one of the preeminent investment disasters this year, you’d be hard pressed to find a long-term bullish argument for the troubled sector. You know all those John Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) hats I saw American tourists wearing in Venice, Italy three years ago? This year, I didn’t see one! […]

Steve Wozniak

Hanging Out With the Woz

I first spoke to Steve Wozniak via HAM radio when I was 12 and he was the 14-year-old president of the Homestead High School Radio Club in Cupertino, California. With seven children, my dad was pretty stingy with allowance money. But when it came to electronic parts, I had an unlimited budget, as that is […]

Shaking the Hand that Killed Osama bin Laden

The team fought their way up two flights of stairs in pitch-blackness, dispatching several fighters along the way. A tall figure emerged in the green glow of the night vision goggles. It hesitated. Two shots were fired, and the body hit the ground. That was how Navy Seal Team Six member, Mark Owen, described the […]
