Is Inflation Back? Inflation Hedge ETFs Aren’t So Sure

Is Inflation Back? Inflation Hedge ETFs Aren’t So Sure

Some prominent voices in the media are beginning to talk about inflation again. Gluskin Sheff’s David Rosenberg, former long-bond advocate and perma-bear on most stocks, believes that a deflationary spiral has abated; in fact, he expects inflationary pressures to build more quickly than the “there-is-no-stinking-inflation” crowd will anticipate.

Is Gold Just Another Metals ETF?

Is Gold Just Another Metals ETF?

There was a time when Gold ETFs seemed unstoppable. They worked when the global economy hummed. They provided relative safety when the world economy collapsed. They hedged against inflation. Heck, they even appeared to hedge against deflation. And there were very few folks who benefited from bad-mouthing the yellow metal as the commodity ran from [...] [...more]

Worst ETFs In 2012? Consider Last Year’s Losers In 2013

Worst ETFs In 2012? Consider Last Year’s Losers In 2013

There’s a tendency in the financial media to wrap-up calendar years with a focus on the “winners” and “losers.” Inevitably, a large number of unsophisticated investors will allocate money to the so-called best performers, while avoiding any commitment to the underachievers. Herein lies one of the biggest mistakes that ETF enthusiasts make. Specifically, they view success [...] [...more]

Copper ETN, Gold ETFs Are Forecasting Stagflation

Copper ETN, Gold ETFs Are Forecasting Stagflation

As many times as gold vigilantes try to short the yellow metal — as often as gold bugs try to take profits near $1900 oz — new buyers still keep coming back. For example, after a 3%+ smackdown on 9/7/11, the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD) managed to rally back 2% on Thursday, 9/8/11. Yet, even as precious metal funds [...] [...more]

Commodity ETNs/ETFs Suggest The Global Economy May Pick Back Up

Commodity ETNs/ETFs Suggest The Global Economy May Pick Back Up

Before it was fashionable to question the sustainability of worldwide GDP growth, I did exactly that. I questioned it.

7 Resources ETFs For The Coming Profit Squeeze

7 Resources ETFs For The Coming Profit Squeeze

Broad-based U.S. benchmarks need to pull back. Not because every adviser would like to buy the dip, but because a health-restoring correction would provide the impetus for a genuine leg higher. Right now, the rally in U.S. equities smells like fund manager desperation. 401k dollars are pouring back into domestic stock mutual funds, forcing managers to [...] [...more]
