Your Financial Edge - Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere and What Can Go Wrong - China / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: John_Mauldin

In this issue:
Your Financial Edge
Blame It on Stability
That Day of Reckoning
A Billion Here, A Billion There
Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere
What Can Go Wrong: China
600 Home Runs, Calgary, and La Jollay

This week we look at length at an outstanding new book just hitting the bookstores by good friend Paul McCulley (of Pimco fame), called Your Financial Edge . The main themes will give me an opportunity to weave in a few thoughts about some recent data, and a lengthy telephone interview with Paul, done just before writing this week's letter, will bring us up to date on his current thinking. I think readers will take away a few good ideas, so let's jump right in.

Bear Stearns Caught in Subprime Mortgages Slime / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Bear Stearns is attempting a $3.2 billion dollar rescue of one of its hedge funds specializing in subprime mortgages. It has offered a deal to several of its creditors of the less leveraged of its two collapsing hedge funds whereby it will assume $3.2 billion of their debt in exchange for an agreement not to seize any of the funds' collateral for 90 days. Merrill Lynch has already seized $850 million of the funds most marketable assets and put them on the market, causing mutual funds and hedge funds holding mortgage backed securities to re-price their assets.

Predicting The Future / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Investmentscore.com

As investors our most valuable tool is definitely the crystal ball, but unfortunately we have yet to find a wizard that is willing to part with his. So if we do not have a crystal ball can we predict the future?

In our opinion the answer is in part, yes. An absolute prediction would be to call specific events at specific times with impeccable accuracy. We can not do this, but we do believe we can reasonably hypothesize what we think will happen in the markets. But what will give us the insight we require to invest accordingly?

Interest Rates Move Stocks / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Investors seeking to beat the market should be aware of the trends in interest rates. In the last couple of weeks we have seen longer term interest rates with the 10 year U.S. Treasury Note breaking through the 5% level. In response to the most recent rise in interest rates, stock price volatility increased causing investors to become more cautious about the stocks in their portfolios. The question is does this increase in interest rates signal a decline in the stock markets and in the price of stocks? Before answering that question, consider some background on interest rates.

China Stock Market 2007 vs NASDAQ 2000 / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Zeal_LLC

The phenomenal performance of this year's red-hot Chinese stock markets has led them to become the most-eagerly-watched financial markets on the planet. While even just a couple years ago few outside of China cared about its indigenous markets, today countless speculators around the globe carefully monitor stock-trading action in China .

And with traders increasingly looking to China with a mix of awe and trepidation, the financial media has been reflecting our growing interest by doing more reporting about what is happening within this awakening giant. Reading news articles detailing the stock-trading action underway in China is incredibly fascinating.

Bear Stearns and MBS Hedge Funds: What are the Real Risks Today? / Stock-Markets / Risk Analysis

By: Paul_Tustain

"...What people don't fully appreciate is the extent to which our financial system has geared up over the last twenty years to finance the worldwide residential housing boom..."

MOST SIGNIFICANT MARKET EVENTS cause an immediate and substantial price reaction, which makes it hard to profit from them. But sometimes there's a sort of slumber, when the market gazes sleepily about itself not quite sure what to do.

We may be experiencing one of them now.

Fools Gold - Risk of Shorting Stocks 130/30 / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Paul_Petillo

Risk is an interesting topic for investors. The balance between too much and the right amount are often fraught with problems, not the least of which is cost. But what happens when you openly embrace risk, stepping outside of the norm for the goal of increasing returns?

Pension plans have often found their ability to increase returns for their funds locked behind the rules of buying long. Buying long simply represents the purest marriage of research and instinct. Success was measured against traditional benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and it was against those indexes that fees for running funds were generally compared.

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The NASDAQ composite (OTC) closed at a multi year high on Friday.

Short Term
For the past few weeks the market has been going from one extreme to another. After experiencing the most oversold condition since early March as measured by upside / downside volume ratios we are now looking at the most overbought condition by that same measure since March.

Pay attention to the Ratio of Leader Stocks to Broad Market Stocks ... / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Every night, we measure the percentage "change of direction" of Leader Stocks and the stocks in the Broad Market. We then divide the two to get a Ratio of Leaders to Broad market stocks.

Leader stocks are named that for a very good reason ... they set the pace and direction of the market. When the Leadership Ratio is high, they "pull up the Broad market stocks".

Discovering bargain stocks in Japan / Stock-Markets / Japanese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: I was still wearing diapers and drinking from a bottle when my mother and I moved from Japan to Tacoma, Washington in 1957.

My first trip back there was when our Boy Scout troop participated in the 1971 World Boy Scout Jamboree held at Asagiri Heights on the western slope of Mt. Fuji.

I still remember playing "wide game," where each scout wore a Japanese character on a colored card around his neck. We then had to fan out over the jamboree site looking for the similar colored cards to spell out the jamboree theme, "For Understanding."

Global Credit Cycle Crunch / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Captain_Hook

Is a credit cycle crunch about to befall global finance? There are those who would argue that although mature Western economies could certainly feel the pinch if credit trends begin to reverse, Eastern economies are immune from such considerations with growth prospects for the area still so robust. And you need to realize a great many investors have their portfolios aggressively positioned with this belief in mind, having thrown all sense of caution to the wind. What's more, it should be realized what we will call ‘complacency' has now gripped the investing public and their professional money managers like never before, primarily predicated on the belief portfolio insurance schemes disingenuous bankers sell them will actually protect assets in the end.

Financial Market Forecasts - Runaway BULL? / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

Coming off a highly erratic two-week period, with certain indices revisiting old territory, and others moving into uncharted waters, one must conclude that the financial sphere is obviously a bit insecure here.

Is a runaway bull upon us, or is this a last thrash of erratic house cleaning by the shopkeepers? In due course, we shall know whether this bull has legs, or if it is a mere fish-out-of-water – in the throws of its last rally spasms toward sheer exhaustion.

Vast Untapped Riches in the Rainforests / Stock-Markets / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: I've just returned from Hispaniola, after a few days by its serene seashores and a visit to its lush rainforests.

The island, shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti, was discovered by Columbus on his very first voyage to the Americas in 1492.

And earlier this year, Money and Markets' Sean Brodrick was also there, trekking along the border area with Haiti. That's where Falconbridge of Canada has been mining nickel for almost 25 years and where other major companies — like Placer Dome and Gold Fields of South Africa — also have mining operations.

Stocks & Commodity Markets Technical Analysis - Trader's Paradise / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

Last week reminded our members why they love logging-in each and every day. While the S&P turned out a 25 point gain, we produced four times that amount before Thursday's PPI report as we traded every turn like no other site possibly could have. The year of volatility we predicted in January continued in full force, giving us juicy moves that proved very profitable for members of TTC, but not so much for most others.

Stock Market Cycle Turning Points Analysis 17th June 2007 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market.

SPX: Long-Term Trend - The 12-year cycle is still in its up-phase but, as we approach its mid-point some of its dominant components are topping and could lead to a severe correction over the next few months.

SPX: Intermediate Trend - With the price reaching the preferred target area in an appropriate time frame, the rally from 3/14 should be coming to an end very soon.

Remain Calm! It's only a bunch of Bear Markets / Stock-Markets / US Bonds

By: Brady_Willett

“A measure of utility companies lost 1.5 percent for the second steepest decline among 10 industries in the S&P 500. Collectively the stocks have a dividend yield of 3.05 percent, the most in the index. Higher bond yields make their dividends less attractive.” Bloomberg

The guaranteed yield on the 1-year Treasury bond broke above 5% yesterday and – suddenly? – a risky dividend yield of 3.05% becomes ‘less attractive'? Why were the lowly yields on utilities, which are the highest of any S&P group, not ‘unattractive' a couple of months ago or even last year? Read full article... Read full article...

Finding the best tech stock to own today / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Twenty-two days — that's how long I spent racing around Asia on this last trip. I missed one of my daughter's dance recitals and a lot of my boys' baseball games. But I firmly believe there's no substitute for boots-on-the-ground research.

Reason: Every trip I've ever made has translated into big investment profits down the road.

And let me tell you, this was my most productive trip yet! I looked at several dozen companies, and I have a small handful to add to my buy list.

Stocks & Commodity Markets Analysis - Don't Say the Crash Word (Yet) / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

Finally, a double top! Or, wait, was it just a pullback in an uptrend?

The volatility we promised back in January has been a constant theme this year, and the market continues to punish anyone that is wrong or just has some of that good ol’ bias. “Crash”, the C-word, was once again splattered across the topic lines of many forums and financial groups. You would think after what we went through this year at the March bottom, and last year in June, people would learn to at least give it more than a week before labeling the move.
