    Sunday Edition: The Mighty Dollar

    Sunday Edition: The Mighty Dollar

    Several weeks ago, I wrote about how I believe it’s possible to time financial markets with a high degree of accuracy.

    In today’s article, I want to discuss the US dollar and why I believe it is nearing a long-term top (sometime in the next 6 to 18 months), and how you can use this trend change to make a small fortune. More →

    Sunday Edition: A “Buy It And Forget It” Diversified Portfolio With 300% to 500% Upside Potential

    Sunday Edition: A “Buy It And Forget It” Diversified Portfolio With 300% to 500% Upside Potential

    Today we are going to take a sneak peak at six globally diversified high growth companies with 10-bagger potential. Companies I believe every serious investor should own.

    But first, I want to talk about a big mistake I see most investors making, which is to “over diversify.” When you own too many stocks, your chance of outperforming the market diminishes because you become the market.

    I’ve shared with our readers before what I believe is the right number of stocks to own so that you have enough diversification to mitigate non-systemic or individual company risk, yet not own too many stocks and hamper your ability to outperform the market. More →

    Sunday Edition: A Deep Dive On High Dividend-Paying Stocks

    Sunday Edition: A Deep Dive On High Dividend-Paying Stocks

    As you know, dividends are one of the primary points of focus of the Rebel Income and Retirement Revival investing systems. I’ve written in the past about why I think dividends should be an intrinsic part of a successful income generation system, and why dividend-paying stocks generally have a stronger fundamental profile than stocks that don’t pay a dividend. I’m calling today’s article a “deep dive” because I’ve noticed a lot of buzz in the media lately about high-dividend stocks. There’s a real temptation to focus on stocks paying the highest dividends possible, but the truth is that sometimes that high dividend is really a warning sign of risks that you need to be aware of.

    Sunday Edition: Analysis Paralysis & Functional Investing

    Sunday Edition: Analysis Paralysis & Functional Investing

    Have you ever gotten caught up measuring and evaluating multiple sides to an argument or question and found yourself more confused than when you started? It can happen in just about any setting and under just about any context, and I believe that none of us are immune to it, to one extent or another. I guess that in some situations that might be a good thing, because sometimes the best action to take could be no action, but when it comes to investing, I find it to be a real hindrance.

    I learned to think of this phenomenon as analysis paralysis, because when it happens to me I get so caught up in weighing pros and cons, or looking for that one little piece of information that will make my decision obvious that I never actually make a decision; I feel like I can’t do anything until I have put all of the pieces of a puzzle into their proper place.

    Sunday Edition: Pitfalls & Risks Of Chasing Yields

    Sunday Edition: Pitfalls & Risks Of Chasing Yields

    When the purpose of your investments is to generate useful income, it’s natural to look around at all of the different investment vehicles available to you to find the highest yield for your dollar. The problem is that in today’s economic environment, investment yields work much differently than they did 20 or 30 years ago. More →

    Sunday Edition: Looking For Value – Market Heavyweight Or Scrappy Underdog?

    Sunday Edition: Looking For Value – Market Heavyweight Or Scrappy Underdog?

    In sports, there is something incredibly compelling about the underdog that nobody expects to win, but does it anyway. It’s even better when it happens against an opponent that is obviously superior in practically any measurable way. As a fan of sports like football and basketball, I like the playoff after-season, when the best handful of teams battle it out for ultimate supremacy. In particular, I get a kick out of trying to pick out the team that I think everybody is dismissing but could be in just the right place, at the right time to prove them all wrong. True, Cinderella doesn’t often actually get to wear the glass slipper, but boy, is it fun when she does! More →

    Sunday Edition: Pigs Get Fat – Hogs Get Slaughtered

    Sunday Edition: Pigs Get Fat – Hogs Get Slaughtered

    The saying I’m using for today’s headline gets used in a lot of different settings, so the odds are pretty good that just about everybody has heard it at one time or another. When I started to learn about directional, short-term trading strategies like swing and trend trading, I had this idea drilled into my head to reinforce the mindset that acting quickly on exit signals, especially if I was profitable, was far better than waiting on the mere hope the stock might keep moving in my favor and give me a bigger profit. It was useful to me then because it helped me start to learn and develop the discipline to disconnect my emotions as much as possible from the investments I made. More →

    Sunday Edition: A Debt Bomb Sure To Implode

    Sunday Edition: A Debt Bomb Sure To Implode

    The recent spike in interest rates over the last few months is a hot topic among financial news and media outlets. And it should be – it’s alarming.

    The rate on the 30-Year U.S. Treasury Bond shot up from 2.10% in early July to over 3% where it now sits. Many, including myself, are now calling for the end of the 35+ year bond bull market.

    I believe when we look back in 20 years, the 177’11 July high in bonds will mark the beginning of a new long-term bear market in bonds. More →

    Sunday Edition: Extreme Investor Sentiment Indicates A Tradable Bottom In Gold

    Sunday Edition: Extreme Investor Sentiment Indicates A Tradable Bottom In Gold

    The longer you’ve invested in, or traded financial markets, the more you probably realize just how difficult it is to accurately time financial markets. Pundits and talking heads will tell you it’s impossible. However, after 20 years of trading and investing, including stocks, bonds, currencies, futures, and options, I do believe it’s possible to identify key characteristics that are present at or near every major turning point in virtually every market.
