  • Tesla: Unexpected Model 3 Details  [View article]
    Heidi,

    As a professional who works with dogs I can tell you unequivocally, every dog can be trained to walk very calmly on a leash.
    Perhaps you can relate to this, the dogs who don't just have lazy owners who won't take the time to learn how to do it right, similar to some investors.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now! At The Edge Of A Global Recession  [View article]
    I use both stocks and ETF's and have done just fine.
    An ETF saves having to monitor 20 or whatever stocks and saves on transaction costs.
    You explained it yourself when you said-
    "while ETFs will cost you money in a sideways market or a market in rally"

    Those stocks will likely also go up or sideways and rot the premium paid.
    All that matters is a strategy that works.

    Mark has provided some good choices for those who just want to do what he does or one who might want to supplement what they do with some of his picks.

    Yuri,

    Consider XLF, (financials ETF) but wait until this rally starts to lose momentum.
    It will likely rise more than S&P in an upturn, will fall more in a downturn.

    Could consider IWM as well (small caps).

    JMO.

    Lawrence,

    Nice pic, looks like Bambi on LSD, suppose thats as good a reference as any to represent Fed actions.
    You really think this bear will end by summer?
    What would change your mind to consider it may be a longer lasting event?

    Lawrence ,

    The turn will come when more stimulus is added. Call it QE4 or maybe the stimulus rose will go by another name, but the markets will struggle until it happens. And it will happen. Thats when it will be time to get back in the water.

    I suspect there are more people that should do this than are willing to admit it.

    All of your points 1-5 were good suggestions.

    Unfortunately even if there is ultimately a class action suit, we would all be lucky to get back pennies on the dollar.

  • ProShares UltraShort Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF: Short Is Money During Recessions  [View article]
    I am guessing BIS may be an inverse to IBB.
    To hedge biotech it seems being short XBI or buying puts might be better.
    XBI has more of the smaller unprofitable biotechs and goes down more than IBB during bad times.

    Not mentioned, unless I missed it, is that LMT has such a strong lobbying arm with politicians (to put it nicely) and the value of this should not be under estimated. Big money and big projects will always be coming their way.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now: A New Energy-Related Candidate  [View article]
    I kept the puts on IWM to hold longer term, thats the insurance.
    If the market doesn't fall then those puts will be worthless.
    I prefer to take some profits along the way which will pay for the puts held if it doesn't drop as expected.
