What The Financial Markets Are Telling Us Now??
The economy is inherently cyclical. While these cycles don’t necessarily repeat themselves, they usually rhyme. “The financial markets often foretell what’s ahead for the economy. This can illuminate opportunities and serve as valuable storm warnings for business leaders. A lot of this runs counter to what people are commonly hearing in the media.
Outline of topics covered:
• Politics and Your Investments
• Outlook for the Deficit and Interest Rates
• Outlook for Energy Prices
• Market Valuation Techniques
• Pros and Cons of International Investing
Uncertainty Brings Opportunity
The decisions made by business leaders and investors during tough times determine their relative condition when things improve. Decision makers need the proper tools to correctly balance survival and opportunism. Making the right calls involves blocking out the noise and remembering that if a majority of the people were right, … a majority of the people would be rich.
The Four Most Dangerous Words In Finance - “THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT!”
Trees don’t really grow to the sky and downturns eventually find some kind of equilibrium point. In times of great optimism and great pessimism we tend to lose sight of historical economic patterns and valuations. Unfortunately, for many each time is the first time. The buzzing background of the 24 hour news cycle only serves to make this worse. We will look at indicators that deliver perspective.
Do These Earnings Make My PE Look Big???
How high is too high? The truth is that no investment is either good or bad. It is all a function of the price that you are buying or selling it at. This kind of thinking is often ignored in a market frenzy. It’s often tough to trust your instincts, focus on the historic patterns and not get swept up by all those talking heads. As economist John Kenneth Galbraith once said “there are two kinds of forecasters, those that don’t know, and those that don’t know that they don’t know.”

Stocks Under Rocks
How to Uncover Overlooked, Profitable Market Opportunities
Find great stocks “in your own backyard”: master do-it-yourself research techniques for uncovering today’s best small-cap equity opportunities! Peter Ricchiuti reveals the secrets of Tulane University’s Burkenroads Reports program, where he and 200+ business students work together to uncover less-followed, frequently misunderstood, and seemingly un-sexy companies that often produce superior investment returns. Their research on these “orphan stocks” powers The Burkenroad Mutual Fund, which has outperformed 99% of all stock funds over the past eleven years.
You’ve seen them on CNBC, CNN, and the Nightly Business report… read about them in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Now, Ricchiuti shows how they do it—and how some well-informed stock sleuthing can pay off big for you, too. You’ll discover why “underfollowed” small-cap equities now offer exceptional investment opportunities, and how to leverage the surprising hidden advantages available to individual investors—including the ability to trade in stocks that don’t generate the volume and liquidity institutional investors require.
Fact is, there’s very little innovative equity research on Wall Street anymore. That gives you a powerful advantage—and Ricchiuti gives you the principles and simple techniques you need to take advantage of it. Stocks Under Rocks will be the next classic for every personal investor who wants to find great investments and have fun doing it!
