  • If Your Portfolio Lost This Much... it in your IRA or investment account, you need to go back to basics.

    The Value Investing for DIY (do it yourself) followers were advised to hold mostly cash. We began the services having 30% cash, and moved 5% into equity.

    Be wary of articles and sites that tout only buying stocks. Not everything is a buy. Valuations matter. Business cycles matter.

  • Markets Need Leadership: It's Facebook

    Crowds, or the masses, move unidirectionally. For markets to move higher, they need leadership. Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB).

  • Bounce From The Bottom

    The DOW 1000 point drop is all but a distant memory, but for Premium Followers, the bounce was a the tune of double digits:

    • Biotech Pick 01 up 18.75%
    • Biotech Pick 02 up 15.30%
    • Mobile game maker up 3.8%
    • Telecom supplier +4.06%
    • Semiconductor Pick 01: (NASDAQ:MU). Down.
    • Semiconductor Pick 02: (NASDAQ:IMOS) up 28.74%

    Energy is a negligible weighting in the model portfolio. We continue to monitor the sector for evidence of stability.

    Interest rate sensitive stocks should outperform markets. A rate hike is unlikely in 2015.

    If you lost $1000 or more, you need to join the premium subscription now.
