  • Profiting From A Late-Cycle Market [View article]
    Probably a 6-12 month horizon. I don't want to overstay a commodity rally.

  • How Patient An Investor Are You? [View article]
    If you are lucky enough to establish a brand name like Lynch or Buffett, there is no question that people will be more patient with you. But then, I remember stories that even well-known value investor John Neff was looking for a job at the height of the Nifty Fifty era.

  • How To Energize Returns Even As Momentum Fades [View article]
    "Good" overbought positions stay overbought, "bad" oversold positions stay oversold. Both are possible in momentum driven markets.

    You don't need Grexit to blow up the banking system. Just look at what happened to Cyprus.

  • Time To Buy GREK? [View article]
    When the Americans made that point to the EU countries at the G7, they were told, "If it's that important to you, then why don't you open your wallet and rescue Greece?"

  • How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Missing CapEx [View article]
    1) This article was an attempt to explain the anemic CapEx record since the Great Recession began, not just today. Why was CapEx so anemic when oil prices were high a year ago?

    2) Going forward, CapEx will be slow in the Energy sector. However, other sectors should benefit from lower input costs as energy and commodity prices fall, similarly with sectors exposed to consumer spending, which should eventually rise. Shouldn't CapEx rise in non-Energy sectors?

  • Why China Won't Devalue And Start A Currency War [View article]
    Q: In the wake of the Lehman Crisis, the US faced a cratering economy, shaky financial system and immense budget deficits. The "obvious" solution was to cut spending. It could have, for example, pulled back from its military commitments in Iraq, Afghanistan and a lot of places around the world, as well as many expensive development programs like the troubled F-35. Why didn't Washington cut the military?

    A: It had other priorities. Just as China has other priorities today, despite its weakening economy.

  • When Fundamentals And Technicals Clash [View article]
    Remember the dynamics of the P/E ratio. If rates rise, it would change the discount rate, or E/P. On the other hand, rates are likely rising because of stronger growth, hence E could be growing faster.

    It is unclear how those two dynamics play out. In most cases, E is growing fast enough that rising interest rates don't affect stock prices, that's why the first few Fed rate hikes generally don't derail a bull market. Eventually, though, stock prices fall because the rising rate effect overwhelm the growth effect.
