How does it Happen?

 

Last week I put out an article in which I suggested that the Democrats are going to push for many different types of candidates to run against Donald Trump in 2020.  As they let these different people with wildly different ideologies get a platform to approach the American people, the first thing that comes to mind is that the party would be “fractured”, by so much division. And that’s what I think they want, total division.

Let’s Have Some Fun!
 
I remember during previous “Presidency’s” going weeks, if not months without the slightest mention of what the President was doing. Oh sure, if there was a summit of some form, or some new legislation passed, you might see the President on TV or hear of a radio interview, but all in all, the news wires were full of all manner of things NOT related to the President.

MMT the New Old Buzzword

 

One of the themes you’ll see recently is this push for acceptance of “MMT” or modern monetary theory.  As we’ll see, this isn’t a new concept, it’s simply one that’s being given a lot of air time because our current politics have a lot of communist/socialists on board. Consider Bernie for example. He freely admits hes a socialist.

What a Week

 

We knew that this week was going to be quite the eventful one with the head of the Federal Reserve talking to Congress, with Michael Cohen ratting on Trump and of course Trump meeting Kim Jong in Vietnam.

 

So, let’s take them step by step. First off Jerome Powell. It didn’t take terribly long for the brain trust in the Federal Reserve to throw a lasso around Powell, after his boisterous claims to run off the balance sheet AND hike rates 4 times into 2019. Once the market puked up 20% of its gains from October to Dec. 24th, they had a “talk” with dear old Jerry, and “Whalla!” What emerged was the Dove of all doves.

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:

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.
