It’s a shame that so many people still feel they can’t invest successfully on their own. They incorrectly believe that managing a portfolio is high finance and stock picking is rocket science. Those false perceptions are exacerbated by a common belief that investing demands too much time that involves constant attention and tinkering. So not...

Ever since the Federal Reserve changed policy positions in late 2018 the markets have reflected the dysfunction in their rationale. Fed chairman Jerome Powell espouses that his policy decisions are “data dependent.” They look anything but. Notwithstanding the agita caused by stock and bond market volatility nothing – and I mean nothing – in the economic numbers warrant the Fed’s decision...

In yet another gross display of managerial incompetence Nike gave its investors another great reason to exit the stock. Their recent decision to pull shoes featuring the first American flag from the shelves during this year’s July 4th celebration is almost as stunning as making former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of their brand.

GONE BABY GONE highlighted my contempt for Nike’s decision to glorify the unpatriotic action of kneeling during our national anthem with a multi-million-dollar ad campaign featuring the leader of the movement, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. That was reason enough for me to sell the stock and replace it with German competitor adidas in my 15-51i portfolio....

The only reason the whole MEDICARE FOR ALL thing has any mojo is because there’s something seriously wrong in the healthcare and medical insurance markets.

So it has been one year since the stock market first started acting crazy. Back then new Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell, had yet to start his first day in office. And even though Powell was billed to arrive on the same long-term page as his predecessor, Janet Yellen, he has since ripped that page out and...

Trade war. No trade war. Trade war. Truce. Brexit is on. Brexit is off. Theresa May’s government looks to be falling apart. Wait a minute, she held on.—But now what? This just in…newly released data shows economic weakness in China is accelerating – and in Europe too. Oh my God – what happened? First things...

Volatility returned to the stock market in January 2018 and it hasn’t left, nor should it be expected to leave. It’s a function of the times and conditions. It is election year, after all. So if market instability makes you nauseous then maybe it’s time to reduce your exposure to the stock market – because...

Investing is more of a discipline than anything else. And while I promised myself to not make any portfolio moves until the next major correction, inspiration to make a move now arrived from a most unusual place – Colin Kaepernick. Once a diehard football fan, I drifted away when those bastards started disrespecting my flag...

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of
