So I Lied

2013 Trades

I sit here with my fingertips battered, bruised, and bleeding. My lower back aches, and my shoulders are as tight as a drum. After promising to take it easy for a while because the risk/reward in the market so badly sucks, I knocked out six Trade Alerts in one day. That is on top of conducting a one-hour strategy webinar and writing a 1,600 word daily newsletter. So I … [Read more...]

The New California Gold Rush

Panning for Gold

On my way back from Lake Tahoe last weekend I saw that every bend of the American river was dotted with hopeful miners, looking to make a windfall fortune. Weekend hobbyists were there panning away from the banks, while the hardcore pros stood in hip waders balancing portable pumps on truck inner tubes, pouring sand into sluice boxes. Welcome to the new California gold … [Read more...]

Turkey is on the Menu

Istanbul

I am building lists of emerging market ETF’s to snap up during any summer sell off, and Turkey popped up on the menu. The country is only one of two Islamic countries that I consider investment grade, (Indonesia is the other one). The 82 million people of Turkey rank 15th in the world population, and 16th with a GDP of $960 billion GDP. Some 25% of the population is under the … [Read more...]

Selling Gold Again

Gold Nuggets

The real shocker today in the Fed’s announcement is that it may increase monetary easing from here. As if we haven’t had enough already, with the US and Japan throwing in a combined $170 billion a month worth of monetary stimulus! More easing means that the America’s central bank thinks the global economy is even weaker than you and I realize. Yikes! Man the lifeboats, pass … [Read more...]

Is USA Inc. a “SELL?

Gold Bars

What would happen if I recommended a stock that had no profits, was cash flow negative, and had a net worth of negative $44 trillion? Chances are, you would cancel your subscription, demand a refund, de-friend me from you Facebook account, and delete my email address from your address book. Yet that is precisely what my former colleague at Morgan Stanley did, technology guru … [Read more...]

Columbia is Popping Up on My Radar

Juan Valdez

My current scenario for global equities has them selling off over the summer, then a rebounding led by emerging markets starting sometime in the fall. In that case, you want to start building short lists of high growth countries to pile into, once the turn comes. I would be including Columbia on any such list. It enjoys that sweet spot of being an oil exporting emerging … [Read more...]

Old Tech’s Big Comeback

Dracula

Apple blew away the bears today with the issuance of $17 billion in bonds, the largest such corporate debt issue in history. Spread over two, five, ten, and 30 years, the deal was oversubscribed by more than 3:1, with $40 billion in demand left unfilled. Foreign investors took down a major part of the deal, which explains Deutsche Bank’s senior role in the syndicate. The … [Read more...]

Get Ready for Your Next Big Tax Hit

IRS Emblem plus

No matter what anyone promises you today, this week, or this year, your taxes are going up. I don’t care if you are still licking your wounds from the January 1 payroll tax rise, or the federal tax hike for millionaires, which in my case took my rate up from 35% to 39.6%. At least the capital gains tax is still a steal at 20%. At $1.3 trillion, the budget deficit is so … [Read more...]
