3/31/2020

Notably, President Trump said a $2 trillion infrastructure bill should be included in the fourth part of a stimulus bill with U.S. interest rates near zero. Oil was $19 earlier last week. Lowest that I remember. Saudi and Russian feud is draining both treasury.

Cornavirus deaths in us are 3289.

3.2 million lost their jobs last week. The old records 695,000 in the great drepression. We sold half the stock and sit on cash. This virus should slow in the quarter, but 10,000 deaths in April and 50,000 by end of quarter is possible.

1/1/2020 The market started on fire and kept going up. Those that sat on bonds watched the returns pale compare the 24% gain in the indexes. Record sales on the Saturday before Christmas makes sense since record unemployment along with record consumer debt. Auto are laying off. Retail is strong. Tariffs make prices higher but the economy is chugging along. Fleckenstein, black swan and dr. doom will have cost you a fortune with their negative advice. We need to see a sales decline, unemployment rise before we get defensive. The collapse will start from overseas. This period reminds of 1997 when the Thai baht collapsed and 1998 when the Russian Ruble collapsed.

6/30/2019 Politics in full swing. No china deal. Unemployment at 50 year low. Stocks at a record. Those waited In January missed this run. Now it looks like the Fed will rates. Bitcoin exploded higher. Corn is up 30% on the flood. Yet, people are saying jobs are hard to find. I am seeing a slight slowdown, many are not.

· Nasdaq Composite +20.7% YTD

· S&P 500 +17.4% YTD

· Russell 2000 +16.2% YTD

· Dow Jones Industrial Average +14.0% YTD

3/30/2019 The Market roared back keeping those in the side little opportunity to get in. We got gasoline at multiyear highs. No collusion, no China deal either. Europe is slowing. That does not mean America will slow. Unemployment is up. The employers are having time filling jobs. The Fed promised not to raise interest rates. So the brakes are on. 48% of adult have no retirement savings. JPM is talking about their own cryptocurrency. That will be much better than bitcoin.

1/1/2019 The Dow fell 5.6%. The S&P 500 was down 6.2% and the Nasdaq fell 4%. Crude collapses. Stocks drop 20% from the highs. The worst December since 1931, Ford and GM lay off thousands. 5% swing trades all show we are in the third month of the recession. We have 6-9 months to go so 2019 will be ugly. The dollar is stronger against all currencies. It looks like the Fed might only raise rates 2 times. Watching XOM and FCX, might sell those if the world economy slows down. Brexit is the news for March. Mueller report will be out next quarter. I expect 100 charges.

4/1/2018 Trade tariff war start with China. FB lets Cambridge look at many data. Fed raise interest rates. Chartists have been screaming that market due to a collapse. One day they will be right. The yen is strong. Japan is a buy for companies with cash. High debt companies are to be avoided. Not so bad to have a second skill like a trade when the market does go bad. I will start going less equities by September 1. Bitcoin has puked down 50%. The FAANG stocks remind me of the Nifty Fifty stocks of the late 60’s. They then collapsed wiping out most portfolios. The 1973-74 bear market made many investors painfully aware of the fact that they can be seriously hurt if they hold stocks while many other stockholders are selling in panic. The market never recovered until 1982. During that time, high dividend utilities and oil were only way to get ahead of inflation.

Weimar Germany held three rules to survive:

1 - that gold/silver is your hedge on inflation.

2 – owning your property is a hedge against crazy rent swings.

3 – Growing your own food helps when food prices get crazy.

7/3/2020

Analysts estimate that profits at blue-chip American companies fell 44 percent in the second quarter, per FactSet. And earnings are expected to continue sliding in the second half of the year, ending with a 22 percent drop. Oil rebounded nicely. Nasdaq and S&P 500 set records. Much hope on a PFE vaccine. 120.000 covid-19 deaths. 19 million people are out of work. The Congressional Budget Office on Thursday said the coronavirus pandemic gave such a shock to the labor market that it would not fully recover for more than 10 years. The retailers should see a slow down in spending next quarter. Airlines are going to be ugly if the virus keeps going up. Remdesivir and plasma therapy need hospital beds to treat. Those are coming short in AZ TX and FL.

I am 40% cash. I think we get another 30% dip between now and Dec 31.





3/31/2020

Notably, President Trump said a $2 trillion infrastructure bill should be included in the fourth part of a stimulus bill with U.S. interest rates near zero. Oil was $19 earlier last week. Lowest that I remember. Saudi and Russian feud is draining both treasury.

Cornavirus deaths in us are 3289.

3.2 million lost their jobs last week. The old records 695,000 in the great drepression. We sold half the stock and sit on cash. This virus should slow in the quarter, but 10,000 deaths in April and 50,000 by end of quarter is possible.

1/1/2020 The market started on fire and kept going up. Those that sat on bonds watched the returns pale compare the 24% gain in the indexes. Record sales on the Saturday before Christmas makes sense since record unemployment along with record consumer debt. Auto are laying off. Retail is strong. Tariffs make prices higher but the economy is chugging along. Fleckenstein, black swan and dr. doom will have cost you a fortune with their negative advice. We need to see a sales decline, unemployment rise before we get defensive. The collapse will start from overseas. This period reminds of 1997 when the Thai baht collapsed and 1998 when the Russian Ruble collapsed.

6/30/2019 Politics in full swing. No china deal. Unemployment at 50 year low. Stocks at a record. Those waited In January missed this run. Now it looks like the Fed will rates. Bitcoin exploded higher. Corn is up 30% on the flood. Yet, people are saying jobs are hard to find. I am seeing a slight slowdown, many are not.

· Nasdaq Composite +20.7% YTD

· S&P 500 +17.4% YTD

· Russell 2000 +16.2% YTD

· Dow Jones Industrial Average +14.0% YTD

3/30/2019 The Market roared back keeping those in the side little opportunity to get in. We got gasoline at multiyear highs. No collusion, no China deal either. Europe is slowing. That does not mean America will slow. Unemployment is up. The employers are having time filling jobs. The Fed promised not to raise interest rates. So the brakes are on. 48% of adult have no retirement savings. JPM is talking about their own cryptocurrency. That will be much better than bitcoin.

1/1/2019 The Dow fell 5.6%. The S&P 500 was down 6.2% and the Nasdaq fell 4%. Crude collapses. Stocks drop 20% from the highs. The worst December since 1931, Ford and GM lay off thousands. 5% swing trades all show we are in the third month of the recession. We have 6-9 months to go so 2019 will be ugly. The dollar is stronger against all currencies. It looks like the Fed might only raise rates 2 times. Watching XOM and FCX, might sell those if the world economy slows down. Brexit is the news for March. Mueller report will be out next quarter. I expect 100 charges.
