Here's Why Blind Contrarianism Investing Failed in 2020 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2020

By: EWI


There is only one instance when the investing crowd is right

Yes, there are many times when the market's Elliott wave structure suggests that an investor should take a position "against the crowd," or put another way, be a contrarian.

Prime examples are at market bottoms and tops.

AI Tech Stocks Buying Levels and EC Indicator Explained / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Nadeem_Walayat

My last look at AI stocks buying levels early September had some of the must own AI stocks trading at ridiculously high valuations for instance Amazon was trading on an EC of 148 against a target maximum of 100! Which prompted me to HIT the SELL button on over 50% of my holdings despite the promise of huge gains in revenues as the pandemic sales and profits came in.

Premium Bonds Good, Bad or Ugly Investment? Here's What Return (Prize Wins) to Expect / Personal_Finance / Investing 2020

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Savers starved of rates due to the continuing bailout of the bankrupt banking sector as the Bank of England literally stuffs hundreds of billions onto their balance sheets by means of artificial profits. So it's no wonder that many millions of Brit's have plowed a large chunk of their savings into government backed Premium Bonds. Here give them a good 1 year test run to see what prices (returns) they generate on a sizeable £32,500 investment. Will I beat the premium bond interest rate of 1.4%, maybe I will be one of the lucky ones and win a big prize, find out in my latest personal finance video.

What Are the 3 Stocks That Will Benefit from Covid-19? / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Submissions

The current coronavirus pandemic has had a massive effect on almost every aspect of the global stock market. In the United States, for instance, the stock market saw an enormous dip around March. This was the worst market crash ever since the infamous 1987 stock market dip in all the 120 years of its history. 

The majority of the shares in South Africa have also deteriorated in value as a result. However, despite all the pressure that companies continue to experience with this pandemic, some have enjoyed good returns. Institutions actively developing vaccines to help curb this menace have a high probability of reaping their exploits' benefits.

How My Friend Made $128,000 Investing in Stocks Without Knowing It / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Stephen_McBride

If it weren’t for my wife, I still wouldn’t know about that pile of money.

My friend John recently told me a crazy story over coffee. One that’s 100X more powerful than any “hot stock tip.”

“It was 1996,” he said. “I was managing apartment buildings and shopping at Home Depot 2–3 days a week. Every time I walked in there, the place was PACKED. I was just getting started investing… but I knew I needed a piece of this business.”

John enrolled in their direct stock purchase plan (DSPP), which automatically buys a fixed dollar amount of shares on a regular basis. “I put an initial $2,500 in, and set it up to buy $75 more every month.”

For the first couple months, John carefully watched his account grow. Then the newness wore off, and he forgot about it. John moved to Costa Rica and turned his attention to real estate. After a successful career there, he and his family moved to Delray Beach, Florida, in 2015.

What to Make of an “Irrational” Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Investing 2020

By: John_Mauldin

Justin Spittler : We’re also smack dab in the middle of earnings season. This is when companies tell the world how their business is doing. They reveal how much their sales grew and if they turned a profit.

Good quarterly results, as I’m sure you know, can cause a stock to race higher. Bad earnings, on the other hand, can send a stock into a tailspin. In fact, it’s quite common for a stock to move 20%, 30%, or even 40% in a day based on earnings.

More importantly, earnings can set the tone for a stock going forward. They can dictate a stock’s trajectory for weeks, months, or even years. But here’s the thing. Not all good earnings ignite powerful rallies. Sometimes, companies crush earnings and barely move or even fall on the news. We’ve been seeing this play out a lot recently.

Beware of These Faulty “Inflation Protected” Investments / Stock-Markets / Investing 2020

By: MoneyMetals

The Federal Reserve last week reiterated its commitment to an unprecedented inflation-raising campaign.

Specifically, the Fed aims to push the inflation rate above 2% for an extended period.

The risk for investors is that central bankers succeed in their mission to depreciate the currency more rapidly – perhaps even more rapidly than intended or acknowledged in the official (understated) inflation data.

Inflation is a corrosive force that eats away at the real value of savings and investments.

Three Key Principles for Successful Disruption Investors / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Stephen_McBride

In this essay, I’ll share my top three “disruption investing” principles for building lasting wealth.

Principle #1: Great Disruption Investors Know Timing Trumps All

Disruptors invent the future. For example, Amazon created the online marketplace. Netflix pioneered video streaming. And Apple is the main reason 85% of Americans have a smartphone. Disruptors figure out how to accomplish things that have never been done before. This often leads to big stock market profits. But it can also lead to irrational excitement. And irrational excitement can lead to dangerous situations in the stock market.

Why Owning Stocks Is the Single Best Way to Get Rich / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Stephen_McBride

The world’s richest man just made history. Amazon (AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos set a new record when his net worth jumped by $13 billion in one day.

Bloomberg now estimates Bezos is worth $185 billion. And get this: he’s now personally worth more than oil giant Exxon Mobil or Nike!

The secret behind Bezos’ financial triumph is simple. The billionaire CEO has made the same $81,840 salary for two decades. But the bulk of his vast fortune is tied to the 57 million shares of Amazon stock he owns—worth $180 billion.

So when Amazon’s stock jumped 10% on July 23, Bezos’ net worth spiked $13 billion in just a few hours. In fact, controlling vast sums of stock market wealth is a common thread among the world’s rich. Scroll through Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index and you’ll see they all vaulted to the top by owning their share of a successful business.

The Coronavirus Just Hit the “Fast-Forward” Button on These Three Industries / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Stephen_McBride

I believe the coronavirus is the most disruptive event since WWII. This pandemic will change entire industries forever. It’ll ignite certain ones. And be the final nail in the coffin for others.

Recently, I shared three industries that the coronavirus will wipe out for good. It was one of the most popular essays I’ve written. And the feedback continues to pour in. So today, we’re doing something similar.

I’ll show you how this crisis is speeding up three super-important industries. These three industries were accelerating before this pandemic took over—but now, they all just officially moved into hyperdrive. And now’s the time to take advantage.

Coronavirus Stock Market Trend Implications and AI Mega-trend Stocks Buying Levels / Stock-Markets / Investing 2020

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Coronavirus trend trajectories for both the UK and US ARE IMPROVING! I.e. Targeting 36,000 US deaths and 10,000 UK deaths far below the likes of Dr Fauci have been bandying around of a minimum of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths. With some late to game so called Medical experts are getting carried away with projections running to 1 million plus for the US which is NOT reflected in the trend trajectory. So it looks like many people have become infected with EXTREME PESSIMISM which is what happens at major market bottoms, as I concluded last week that we have probably seen the bear market low at Dow 18,200 which this weeks coronavirus data is confirming.

Therefore this improving coronavirus trend 'should' resolve in relative stock market strength during the coming week.

Your Investment Portfolio for the Next Decade—Fix It with the “Anti-Stock” / Portfolio / Investing 2020

By: Jared_Dillian

For months—years—I’ve been extolling the virtues of portfolios that are primarily comprised of bonds. Especially in retirement.

Bonds provide necessary diversification. They may end up reducing returns, but you are more than compensated by the reduction in risk.

A few months ago, people were giving me a lot of grief about this. I heard all about how irresponsible it was to promote bonds in a low interest rate environment. Then interest rates went even lower, as stocks went down a lot.

Disney Could Mount Its Biggest Rally in 2020 / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Stephen_McBride

I got to spend lots of time with my one-year-old daughter over the holidays, who is quickly becoming a Disney (DIS) superfan. She dragged me and my wife into the playroom to watch the movie Frozen at least five times.

If you have a daughter or granddaughter, I’m sure you know all about Frozen. The mega-hit raked in $1.2 billion when it hit the big screen in 2013. So it was practically a guarantee Disney would make a sequel. Frozen II hit theaters a few weeks ago and raked in another $1.2 billion.
