E Going Viral
We are used to hearing that things have "gone viral", as they say, but this time it's different. What is "going viral" is not a funny picture, story, a cat video, it is in fact a virus. Investors don't know what to make of it. I can see why.
Market Statistics And Healthcare Stocks
It is uncertain how long the coronavirus volatility will last, but the market is less extended now than it was two weeks ago. This is a better entry point, and healthcare stocks are especially attractive.
New IRA Rules
Starting January 1, the recently passed Secure Act made rule changes to IRAs and Inherited IRAs. If you are near 70 ½ or will inherit an IRA from someone other than your spouse, then these changes will affect you.
Christmas "Presents"
Investors received a few presents recently. I'm referring to dividend boosts. By owning dividend payers, investors will be receiving "presents" again and again.
E Good News
Stock prices are up plus 28 percent year-to-date (not counting dividends). Clearly, there isn’t much concern about an impeachment. Here's why stocks are up.
E A "Taxing" Problem For Mutual Funds
The month of December points out one of the flaws in mutual funds ... they are not tax efficient. Here's why.
Niche ETFs
ETF assets will continue to rise, with the bull market acting as a tailwind. Successful new niche players will be introduced but launching an ETF that attracts assets is becoming increasingly difficult.
More Records
The bull market is rolling along to new highs as investors, unfazed by well-known problems (real and perceived), put money to work where it is treated best.
Attractive Market Opportunities
Investors can buy the market as it hits new highs using passive mutual funds or ETFs, or if they don’t want to chase strength they can look to the healthcare sector. There are opportunities for investors, both to buy breakouts and buy laggards.
A Message To Millennials
When should you invest for retirement? Early.
And The Winner Is...
The debate over active versus passive management appears to be over. Thanks to their low fees index funds have outperformed most of their actively managed peers. That wouldn’t have happened unless the market was efficient, or nearly so.
E More Records, But Not In Earnings
Financial commentators are struggling to explain why stocks keep hitting new highs. Bearish scenarios are always easier to find. Here's why stocks are strong.
Talk, Talk, Talk
One would think the trade negotiators long ago ran out of positions to discuss. Apparently not, so they meet and talk, then meet again and talk, talk, talk. Wall Street has its own talkers …
E Still Looking Good
The financial backdrop was hopeless, some believed, until Christmas when stocks took off en route to record highs amid a backdrop some saw as flawless.
E On Inflation And Interest Rates
President Trump’s move early this week to quash Iran’s oil exports sent West Texas crude oil prices to $66, near six-month high. While by itself rising oil prices could be inflationary it’s hard to find much inflation elsewhere. Why?
E A Trip Down Memory Lane
Some look at the investment world today and believe the deck is stacked against ordinary investors It's not true; here's why.
