Buying the Dip In Apple? You’re A Market Timer

04 August 2015 at 11:20 am by Gary Gordon

One of the media’s biggest financial stories this week involves the curious fall of Apple (AAPL).

5 Reasons To Lower Your Allocation To Riskier Assets

30 July 2015 at 3:26 pm by Gary Gordon

For months, I have been discussing the likely implications of deteriorating market breadth. For instance, fewer and fewer components are holding up the Dow, the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ. Only a small number of industry sectors are keeping the popular benchmarks in the plus column. Similarly, half of the stocks in the S&P 500 currently [...] Continue Reading...

Remember July 2011? The Stock Market’s Advance-Decline (A/D) Line Remembers

28 July 2015 at 11:34 am by Gary Gordon

According to Bloomberg data, the modest year-to-date increase in the S&P 500 is attributable to health care and retail alone. Worse yet, the two industry segments trade at a 20% premium to the market at large. Paying a premium for growth is one thing. Chasing a handful of momentum stocks is another. Brokerage firm Jones Trading [...] Continue Reading...

23 July 2015 at 11:44 am by Gary Gordon

Tens of thousands of investors read my commentary at popular financial portals. Some have been reading my articles for more than a decade. Others might have clicked on a social media “follow” link in the last month or the last last year. Ironically, few realize that I originally developed a front-n-center persona on national talk [...] Continue Reading...

Allocation Advice For The Do-It-Yourself Investor

21 July 2015 at 11:13 am by Gary Gordon

At the tail end of 2014, individual investors as well as financial web site editors asked me for predictions on a variety of assets heading into 2015. I answered as many folks as I could.

16 July 2015 at 1:45 pm by Gary Gordon

Over the past century, the U.S. stock market typically turned down prior to the onset of a recession. You did not need to predict economic contraction; rather, you monitored the Dow and the S&P 500 because the benchmarks acted like leading indicators of bad times ahead. (Investors checked the market internals to get a sense [...] Continue Reading...

What’s So Bad About Kicking The Container Down The Road?

14 July 2015 at 11:41 am by Gary Gordon

Every central banker and monetary authority understands economics. Each recognizes that debt-centric spending, interest rate repression and eye-popping additions to total government obligations will not sidestep inevitable defaults and/or worthless currencies in the future. So why has every influential central bank on the world stage – Federal Reserve, Bank of Japan, People’s Bank of China, [...] Continue Reading...
