In their century long coverage of exotic places, cultures, and practices, National Geographic Magazine inadvertently sheds light on broad global trends that deeply affect the rest of us. Plus, the pictures are great. A recent issue celebrated the approach of the world’s population to 7 billion, and the implications therein. Long time readers of this […]
If you think that an energy shortage is bad, it will pale in comparison to the next water crisis. So investment in fresh water infrastructure is going to be a great recurring long-term investment theme. One theory about the endless wars in the Middle East since 1918 is that they have really been over water […]
Every time the price of oil spikes, we learn vast amounts of information about the global reach of this indispensable commodity. It’s like taking a non-core elective in geology at college. So I was fascinated when I found the chart of relative sector winners and losers below. No surprise that energy does best from sky-high […]

Yes, I know that the presidential election of 2016 is three years off. But if you already know the outcome of that contest you can use it to your advantage trading the markets today. You don’t want to get caught out like many conservatives did in 2012, who were forced to dump stock in a […]

The big talk in the financial markets this year was of the “Great Reallocation” out of bonds and into stocks.” The problem is that it was just that: talk. While redemptions of retail bond mutual funds have topped $147 billion since June, the big money has yet to move in size. However, there is a […]
I am one of those cheapskates who buys Christmas ornaments by the bucket load from Costco in January for ten cents on the dollar because my eleven month return on capital comes close to 1,000%. I also like buying flood insurance in the middle of the summer when the forecast here in California is for […]

When Mad Day Trader, Jim Parker, told me he was up 292% over the past seven months, I didn’t believe him. The value of a nominal $1,000 investment would have to have increased to $3,124. “It’s too good to be true,” I thought. Nobody will believe it. Even my own customer support people said it […]
The world is about to suffer an acute shortage of equity capital over the next eight years, which could total $12.3 trillion.
