  • John Hussman: The Journeys Of Sisyphus [View article]
    The Long held theory of Buy and Hold for the long run is no longer a valid strategy.
    Buy Low and Hold can be profitable but not if you are always fully invested and have no cash to invest as prices decline. It is necessary to recognize when a security is overvalued and take profits.
    John is providing an excellent analysis of overvaluation in the markets in general.
    It is up to us to determine which securities that we own are overvalued and take profits.
    The most difficult thing for an Investor to do is sit on cash.
    Thats what separates the Men from the Boys.

  • How Warren Buffett Failed Coca-Cola Shareholders... And Himself [View article]
    It's a structural problem : Lack of Disclosure
    Lack of accountability
    Most major corporations are controlled by banks.
    See - Bank Control of Large Corporations by David Kotz.
    It was a Doctoral Dissertation in Economics.
    They control the board by controlling the Nominating Committee.
    They don't hold the stock. They load the companies up with debt,
    both short and long term. We hold the bag.

    We need Legislation requiring a publicly traded company to declare and pay out
    a minimum of 40% of it's earnings both foreign and domestic in dividends.
    Then watch the savings rate skyrocket and the US Economy take off.

    Lets start a Stockholders PAC and get it done.
    We Own Corporate America in our IRAs and 401Ks,Pension Funds, our 50 shares of KO, 100shares PG etc, etc but we are getting little benefit from it.

    This is not capitalism !!! Capitalism connotes equity or ownership not debt.
    When a corporate capital structure is more than 50% debt it is no longer
    a capitalist institution; it is a hostage of the Money lenders.
    The stock holders and employees be dammed.

    We had Commercial Capitalism, followed by Industrial Capitalism, followed by
    Financial Capitalism with the introduction of the Limited Liability corporation but we have failed to further evolve into a Pluralistic Capitalism where all the stake holders, (Investors,Management,... and communities all benefit but rather
    we have devolved into what can be called Credit / Capitalism, a contradiction in terms. This is not even Common Sense. It is Nonsense.

    Stockholders PAC Anyone ?
