Morning all, welcome to yet another day of "who the hell knows!"

The first headline I bumped into was that Trump walked away from the table in Hanoi. Evidently Kim Jong and him couldn't come to a total agreement, and they decided to leave things as they sit.

The latest edition of the Financial Intelligence Report is up, and today in the free newsletter, we're talking about the fraud and manipulation that is stock buy backs. Until 1982 they were deemed illegal by the SEC, as a way that companies might manipulate their shares. 

Well in 2019 about 70% of the entire market's move is based on stock buy backs. So we take a look at that swindle. We also talk about the sticking point that is S&P 2800 and whether we can push up and over it, or if the rally fails here. Give it a read, it's good stuff, and of course, it's Free.

All Fraud, All the Time

 

In the past few days I’ve had several people email me, complaining about this crazy stock market.  I’m going to post the following, because it is very typical of the things I’ve been receiving:

Hello everyone, we've made it to that annoying Geico commercial day - Hump day.

There's so much going on today that it will be quite entertaining to watch. First off we have Trump and Kim Jong meeting in Vietnam. That ought to produce some interesting news bytes. 

Then of course we have the Cohen testimony. I have already seen and read his prepared statement, and there's enough in there to get the Democrats foaming at the mouth. You can bet that the 6 pm news will be "nothing but" that coverage.

Hi all, welcome to your new day. 

So yesterday the S&P poked its head over that 2800 level and tried its best to stay there. But gravity took a toll and we went into the close with the index slightly below that benchmark. 

This morning I woke to slightly red futures and heading into 8 am they're still a bit pink. We see the DOW implied to open about 60 points lower.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I'd love to tell you that after a few days away with the wife at a nice beach resort, I'm all rested and ready to get to it. Well that's the furthest thing from the truth. The truth is we had a wonderful time, in a great place and I wish we were still there for another week.

Good morning everyone, we've made it to another Friday and one that I'm personally looking forward to. 

As I've mentioned all week, the wife and I will be celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary by heading out of town for a few days, so I'll be out of here by noon today.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.  Oh, and thank you all to those who wrote in saying "happy anniversary!"  I do appreciate it. 

Okay, so what's happening this fine morning? Well...

2.20.2019 - What's a Portfolio, anyway? Bookmark

The most common description of a portfolio, is a bunch of investments designed to bring you a profit. But I argue that investments don't  always have to be for profit, they can be for material return. 

What I'm getting at, is that when things are fine, and all is well, then buying stocks and bonds and CD's etc, are an excellent way to grow your wealth. But, when times are bizarre as they are becoming daily, maybe some investment in "things" starts to make sense. We see what's happening in Venezuela, and we see people hunting for food in dumpsters. Those people would much rather have a fridge full of food, than a bank account. 

Consider "investing' in things that can get you through a tough time. That's a worthwhile portfolio. 

 

We also talk about the market of course. The S&P is edging ever closer to that 2800 level, an area that has served as stubborn resistance in the past. Will it get through and challenge the all time highs?

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:
