Dispelling Illusions of the Stock Market


How can you dispel an illusion unless you look directly at it? The magician distracts the eye with one hand while he does his manipulation with the other. You are looking in the wrong place and not seeing what is actually happening.

Diversification


Wall Street's watchword has always been diversification, but what does it mean and why do they say it?The standard Wall Street definition is flexible because each broker or financial planner will vary the portfolio based on your age and income. They say that the younger you are the more risk you should take and the older you are the less risk.

Dividends


When is a dividend not a dividend?The latest thing "conservative" brokers are preaching these days is to buy stocks that pay dividends. Everyone likes dividends.

Does Japan Matter?


For the last 12 years we have seen the Japanese stock market slowly sinking from a high of 38,000 to about 8,000, more than a 75% loss and very close to the price of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Why should we care about their stock market?Please understand that the stock market price is a reflection of the overall economy of a country.

Dollar Cost Averaging


Dollar cost averaging is one of the most popular ideas in the investment community. Everyone seems to like it and it has become a watchword among stock and mutual fund brokers.

Dont Ask Your Broker


Unfortunately, most of you who are reading my column are suffering some substantial losses in the stock market. Whether it is mutual funds or individual stocks everything with mighty few exceptions is going down.

Dont Fight The Fed


One of the great truisms of Wall Street is "Don't fight the Fed". For the long term investors this has resulted in greater profits.

Downdraft


For the year 2000 we have seen hundreds of mutual funds lose 40%, 50% and more of their value. This does not seem right since the fund is supposed to be managed by a professional.

Duck


Duck! No I don't mean a quack, quack. I meant get down, look out for a huge blob of brown stuff is heading your way.

Duct Tape


Did you run out to buy that duct tape yet? Don't forget the plastic sheeting, bottles of water, canned food and a couple of books to read. What are you waiting for? I know - things to get better so you can resume your normal life style.

Getting Even


I know there are a lot of you out there who would like to "get even" with the stock market. Many are on the diet of "I hope, I hope".

Good News?


As the man said, "I've got some good news and I've got some bad news. What do you want to hear first?" It was replied, "Tell me the good news first".

Hedge Funds


You read and hear a lot about hedge funds. Unfortunately, most of what you hear is negative because it comes from the major media that has an interest in reporting negatives about them because the major media is supported by so-called standard mutual funds and brokerage companies that spend big bucks for advertising.

The Holy Grail (of Investment)


Every year I go to the Money Show in Orlando, Florida. Thousands attend.

Gold Fever


Right now there doesn't seem to be any "gold fever". Very few are out looking to strike it rich in this sector.
