What’s a Portfolio?
 
The dictionary defines a portfolio two ways:
noun
1.a large, thin, flat case for loose sheets of paper such as drawings or maps.
2. a range of investments held by a person or organization.
 
As you might imagine, when we’re talking about portfolio, we’re generally speaking about “investments.” But let me ask you this, what is an investment?
Again, let’s look:

Wag the Dog

 

First off a note that should make you all pretty happy. This letter will be much shorter than my usual rants. Evidently I hurt my wrist pretty bad Sunday, and had to go to the urgent care on Tuesday to get it looked at. I’m pretty resistant to pain, but this became unbearable.   So, I’m in a soft wrap cast, and typing is, well, frustrating. ( and painful)

Conspiracy Files
 
If you like playing detective, the Internet was the single greatest invention in your lifetime. ( Frankly I believe it is one of the great wonders of the world. I am constantly amazed that I can sit on my couch and read the works of people around the world, tap into the library of Congress, plot my travels, see live cams of Eagles in Florida and lions in Africa, etc. It still boggles my mind)

The Bear Bounce
 
If you're even loosely connected to the stock market, you know that back in December the wheels flew off things. 70% of the listed stocks fell more than 20%. Some fell 50. It was fast and it was harsh.
 
But then the spirits flipped and from the end of December until now, stocks have roared higher. Day after day it seemed, the market could only go up. That of course has the TV stock evangelists proclaiming that the new bull market was back in effect, and we've got years of ever rising stock prices ahead.

Crying Wolf for 20 years?
 
Before we get to the meat and potatoes of today’s letter, I just want to mention that the Launch of our new product “Horizons,” for the long term investor, has gone well. We’ve already taken on two positions, and this weekend we’re going to be discussing ‘position size” and portfolio balancing. If you’re interested at all in investing with a longer time Horizon, sign up and see if we can help you.

While I eventually expect to just put out 2 - 3 letters per month, because this is new, and there’s some learning curves concerning just how to make it the most effective it can be, I’m sending one out each Sunday evening for a while.

I’d be thrilled to have you along for the ride! Just remember, this letter isn’t about trading, it’s long term investing. Our “Insiders” club is the place to be if you’re a nimble trader.

NOTE>> Last Sunday ( and all through the week) we’ve sent out our “intro” letter about our new product, to those who signed up. The “new product” is for the longer term investor, and we’re calling it “Horizons.” For 25 years, people have asked us for a letter focused on longer term horizons, not swing trading. So, we’ve finally done it. The First “actionable” letter goes out tonight ( Sunday evening).
If you’ve been looking for a longer term holds type of newsletter, that’s a bit different than the main stream, consider a one year subscription to Horizons. I will send the “intro” letter to anyone that signs up throughout the year, since it’s important to understand what we’re trying to accomplish and how. Anyway, if you want in on the “ground floor”, click the following link and sign up!

Is The Fed Planning On Killing the US?
 
NOTE:  I teased you all on New Years that I was going to start a stand alone product for the long term investor. The person that can't be as nimble as us in trading, a person that only wants to fiddle with things once a month or less, yet take in above average returns. This is a reality, and it will begin shortly. ( the first issue could go out as early as next week) The hold up has been pricing

Holiday Thoughts
 
How was your Christmas? I truly pray it was a wonderful time for you and your friends and family. Ours was quite terrific, thank you.
 
I know, I know, I’m supposed to talk about the markets and all the madness going on there. Well the fact is, we have another full year of market madness coming at us, and there will be ample time to dissect all of that.
 
I had a nice chat with one of my paid subscription members today. He too looks after a 90+ year old mom, and he told me that because I often mention about the struggles of doing that with my Mom, he feels like he knows me as a friend. It’s the highest compliment I can get actually.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

There it is, in all its simplicity. It’s not “Happy Holidays” in my home, it’s Merry Christmas. It’s the day that umpteen million people celebrate the birth of one Jesus Christ.

 

I’m not going to write about the market today. I’m not writing about the shut down, the intense bickering between the left and the right, the tariffs, the market plunge or opioid addictions. No, today is pretty short and sweet.

The End

 

On Tuesday, just around noon time, the market fell like the proverbial rock. While it was slightly down from the open, hovering around – 200 points, when the S&P neared the 2760 area, all hell broke loose. How much hell? About 32 billion dollars worth of stock hit the market. All to the sell side. By 2 pm, we had the DOW down 740 points. The S&P down 80.
