Why Passive Management better than Active Management in Stock Market Investing? / InvestorEducation / Investing 2012

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

What offers the challenges of a chess game, thrill of a poker game yet it is so difficult to make money and only a handful of professionals managed to do well? It looks deceptively simple, offers the glitz of a movie star and everyone claims to be an expert in it and yet most of them lost money. The answer is the financial market which is fascinating, thrilling, and entertaining and opens 24 hours a day and seven days a week. As long as you are hook onto the internet you are able to play it in the comfort of your own home or where ever you are even in remote South Pacific or in an isolated beach in South America. It is the dream of every investor to become wealthy but how? Are there any shortcuts? Traditionally there are three ways for us to accumulate wealth namely, 1) through inheritance, 2) through the selling of one’s labour or 3) by using one’s savings to generate more wealth through investment.

Mish Mike Shedlock Exposed, the Deflation Great Pumpkin / Politics / Investing 2012

By: Peter_Schiff

In January 2009, just as the "Peter Schiff was Right" YouTube video that catalogued my previously derided predictions about a coming financial collapse was racking up views and attracting mainstream attention, a blogger and investment advisor named Mike Shedlock (aka "Mish") saw an opportunity to make an unethical grab at my current and prospective clients by breaking the nascent wave.

Shedlock put together a misleading marketing piece entitled "Peter Schiff was Wrong" which compared my recent investment performance with that of his little known firm, Sitka Pacific Investment Advisors. The piece, that circulated widely in the press and on the Internet, focused on how the foreign stocks and currencies I favored had fallen sharply in 2008 while the Sitka Pacific strategy prevented huge losses during the crash. By ignoring long-term data in favor of highly selective short-term performance, the piece tempted people to bail on positions that were poised to make sharp upward moves and lured them into a strategy that has been a long-term disaster for investors.

Fiscal Cliff Investment Opportunities / Stock-Markets / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Many investors believe that a fiscal cliff "dive" is inevitable.

Even with the prospect of a deal lifting the markets yesterday, I can't say I disagree.

The blame game has already started and it's highly unlikely that we'll see anything other than more foolishness out of Washington. And so far all they have done is kick the can down the road to date.

Japan on a World Wide Asset Buying Spree / Stock-Markets / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: They're baaaaack. While the Chinese are busy grabbing all of the headlines, it's really the Japanese who are making the biggest moves.

So far this year, they've very quietly spent $101 billion on overseas acquisitions in a global buying spree that now dwarfs the one undertaken in the late 1980s and early 1990s according to Edward Jones of Dealogic.

Don't misunderstand: I don't spend the week away from the office holed up and away from my family. Quite the opposite.

Four Debt Free Companies to Own Even if Markets Crash / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: Many investors remain on the sidelines under the impression that every company has been stopped in its tracks by the financial crisis. Somehow they've convinced themselves there's nothing worth owning.

The problem is it's just not true. Companies that carry little or no debt are kicking butt and will continue to do so even if the markets stumble.

Four Recession-Proof Stocks Investing for 2012 and Beyond / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Despite the efforts of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and his cohorts, it looks like gridlock in Congress will push us into a recession in 2013, if not sooner.

In case you haven't been paying attention, "Taxmageddon," and election-year politics have driven the economy to the edge of a "fiscal cliff." This means the start of next year, unless drastic measures are taken in Washington, is looking precarious for investors.

IBM Proving That Value Investing Is Not A Form Of Market Timing / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Charles_Carnevale

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThroughout my career, I have often come across those who believe that value investing is a form of market timing. This misconception seems to be based on the notion that since a value investor determines the price above which they are not willing to pay for a stock, that they are in effect timing the market. The fallacy in this logic is that value investors are not concerned with price, they are concerned with valuation. Therefore, I offer this article as an attempt to clarify the differences between timing the market versus behaving as a value investor.

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far, 2012 has been a banner year for the stock market, which recently closed the books on its best first quarter in 14 years. But Casey Research Chairman Doug Casey insists that time is running out on the ticking time bombs. Next week when Casey Research's spring summit gets underway, Casey will open the first general session addressing the question of whether the inevitable is now imminent. In another exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Casey tells us that he foresees extreme volatility "as the titanic forces of inflation and deflation fight with each other" and a forced shift to speculation to either protect or build wealth.

Four Defensive Stocks for a Market Pullback: MCD, MO, CAG, JNJ / Companies / Investing 2012

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: If you looked at just the first-quarter results you could be forgiven for thinking that everything in the stock market is rosy.

The Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500 turned in their best performances since 1998, rising 8.14% and 12.0%, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Nasdaq was even stronger, riding a tech-stock rally to a gain of nearly 19% - its best yearly start since 1991.
