Good morning everyone. 

Well they made it 12 up days in a row. For no really good reason, the DOW shook off its red and ended the day green by 15. The S&P picked up 2.  Think about that for a minute. In the wildest market craze of the late 90's into the housing bubble craze of the 2005 - 07 ramp up, the DOW couldn't string 12 days of up together. But today, in an atmosphere of crushing debt loads, Non-GAAP earnings, and all the other ills...we've done it.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. No matter where you live, I hope it was a great one for you and the weather didn't beat you up. As always I'll bore you to tears with ours. 

First off the weather was....well the weather was why Sarasota is growing like a weed. Both Saturday and Sunday were story book. 78 degrees, not a cloud in the deep blue sky. Of course another reason for our outrageous growth is our beaches. Trip Advisor came out Thursday and listed Siesta Key beach as the single best beach in America.  A few years back when "Dr. Beach" did that, we saw a massive spike in  tourism that year. I figure the trip advisor listing will bring even more folks.   To be brutally honest... we've over grown ourselves. The traffic is horrendous and go ahead and try and get a seat at your favorite  restaurant on a Friday or Saturday evening.  Good luck wit dat.  Oh and that "number one beach?" You'd best get there by 8 am on a weekend if you want to see it, or...there'll be no where to park.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday and Mr. Market is in a bit of a whiny mood this morning. When I first flipped on the monitors at 6:30, the futures were down 88 on the DOW and 8 on the S&P. Since then they've bounced around a bit, but they're still down

Good morning everyone, welcome to the day. 

So, I guess we could call yesterday "pink". The NASDAQ was slightly red, the S&P slightly red, and the DOW slightly green. I guess that in this run up, that's about all the "pause" we're going to get.

So this week we're talking about the incredible, unstoppable bubble that is indeed our stock market. People want to know if it's safe to buy in at these levels, and that's a great discussion. So, our free investment newsletter this week is about that very topic. What do you do with your 401K at a time like this? What do you do if you're sitting on some cash and watching the market run away?  

Are we overbought? Unmercifully. Even some of the grand old masters like Art Cashin has stated we're fabulously overbought. Only to become more overbought the next day. It's times like this that truly "try" you. As Benjamin Graham observed decades ago, "Speculators often prosper through ignorance; it is a cliche that in a roaring bull market, knowledge is superfluous and experience is a handicap. But the typical experience of the speculator is one of temporary profit and ultimate loss."

 

That's right. If you're fat, dumb and happy and just went with the flow, you're doing very well. If you looked at the fundamentals, the overvaluations, the spreads, the lousy earnings... you'd be smart, and you'd be sitting on your hands as the market keeps moving higher.   So, take a peek at this Wednesday's free investing newsletter, it's posted on the site now.

Is It Safe?
 
Monday I was pondering a topic for the International Forecaster. It's a publication that was started by the late great Bob Chapman. I continue to donate articles to it to this day. As I was watching the futures, despite our own market's being closed for Presidents day, I decided to share some thoughts that I shared with my readers last week....

Good morning everyone, welcome to Wednesday. 

Before we get into the action today, I want to mention something to some of the new subscribers. 

1) yes we do do long term holds. But we certainly don't like starting them after a 3 month melt up.
2) Yes we do options plays. 
3) yes we go short. In fact the biggest stock gains we ever had was being short the Financials back in the 2008 melt down. We had many 400% + winners.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I know, I know, a lot of you only had a 2 day weekend, but some of you did get lucky and eek out the third.  Anytime the market is closed for a Holiday, it's a time of celebration for me!

2.19.2017 - Free investment newsletter is up! Bookmark

Hey all, I've posted the Sunday edition of our free investing newsletter a day ahead of schedule. Sunday is my anniversary, and the wife and I have the day planned out, so I figured I'd get this up a day ahead. In this issue we're talking about the absolute "war" that's raging in DC. The white hats versus the black hats in the Intelligence community. The apoplectic response of the Media to everything anyone connected to trump does, etc.  But we also chat about this market run up and what we might expect.  Oh and finally, I am pulling the plug on our lifetime offer today. Response was to the point where I have to shut it down a week early.

NOTE!!!!
I am Closing the Lifetime Insiders Club offer early. I originally figured I’d leave it open for two weeks and let the folks that might not see our newsletter for a week or so ( travel, etc)  get the deal. But I can’t. For all my current annual and monthly subscribers that hopped on this, I say thanks for trusting in us.  It’s humbling to see so many take advantage of it.  But the response was bigger than I expected, so, I’m not going to run this for “ten days to two weeks”.  No, I’m going to end this offer today. This is the last time you’ll see this offer in the Newsletter.  I don’t believe I will ever run it again.

I will allow any last minute stragglers in until Midnight on Tuesday. I sort of forgot it was a Holiday weekend and many are traveling for an extended weekend. The deal is simple: For just 600 bucks you get the insiders club until I either croak or mentally/physically can’t write it any more. Considering we get 200 per year, after 3 years it’s all gravy to you. If I publish for 20 more years, you win.
