Weekly Update

The Large Just Became Larger

The largest company in the world by market capitalization just became larger. Shares of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) gained 13% last week, gaining momentum after reporting a very strong quarter. The market value of the company has exceeded $915 billion and AAPL trade at an all-time high. The popular iPhone continues to be a lucrative cash […]

What Rising Market Volatility Tells Us

When you follow all the news coming out of Washington, it might seem reasonable to assume that rising levels of market volatility must relate somehow to all the chaos that continues to mark the political scene. But the market has demonstrated a remarkable ability to shrug off political disruptions. What it can’t shrug off, though, […]

A Review of Our Utilities

Utilities as a group are not the most exciting investments. The government controls how much they can charge customers, so their growth potential is limited. In exchange, the government allows them to operate as de-facto monopolies and charge fees high enough to make a moderate profit. But while they don’t offer tremendous growth upside, the […]

The Yuan, Oil, and Changing Market Leadership

The yuan today rose to its highest level vis-à-vis the dollar since mid-2015. The move comes on the same day that China officially launched an Eastern oil benchmark traded in yuan. In coming months we’ll be watching the yuan especially carefully, along with two other things: the price of oil, and changes in market leadership. […]

Value or Growth: Why Not Have Them Both?

Are we entering a period of rising inflation? To quote from one of my favorite movies, the Coen brothers’ bleakly funny Fargo, “you betcha.” And does this have investment implications you should know about? Same answer. Some of these implications may surprise you. But rest assured: We’re on top of them, and we’re making sure […]

Where to Look as the Market Gets More Volatile

The investment world is complex. That’s one reason analysts and technicians look for data points from a range of different areas to confirm one another. Dow Theory, for instance, asserts a bull or bear market comes only when the industrial and transportation indexes are moving in sync. Similarly, economists want to see consumer sentiment and […]

A Beaten-Down Group Still Carries Long-Term Appeal

In the 1960s, Congress created the category of real estate investment trusts (REITs) as a convenient and affordable way for individuals to invest in real estate. REITs, which must pay out at least 90% of their taxable income in dividends, are geared towards income investors. Lately REITs have been struggling in the market. That’s largely […]

Why This Time Is Different – Really

Anytime anyone tells you “this time it’s different”, you generally want to watch out. After all, that’s the kind of delusional blarney that investors relied on to keep buying tech stocks at ever more loony values until the bitter end. It’s the phrase you hear, in fact, in connection with just about any bubble or […]

5 Rebound Candidates for 2018

By and large, 2017 was a strong year for most of our picks. Yet there were a handful of stocks that, for one reason or another, had a down year. In this article we highlight five stocks that had a losing 2017 but we expect to rebound in 2018. Since its June 2017 trough, Brent […]
