  • Significant Returns Possible With These Inverse Volatility ETFs [View article]
    OK Nathan I read most of your articles, I will wait for contango to either buy svxy or buy puts on vxx. How far out in time do you buy the puts and how far out of the money or in the money do you buy them

    At some point the vix will peak but still be in backwaration because everyone expects it to go lower. At that peak would be a good time to buy svxy unless I am mistaken but the vix will not go in to contango til it goes down enough that people think it might go higher. I would think you would miss quite a lot of the innitial gains in svxy.

    What are your thoughts on when to buy svxy at the present time.

    Wouldnt spinning off the real estate increase their real estate costs over time?

    If they have low debt, they could refinance the real estate at present low rates.

    Do they have a desire to expand and have a use for the money that would be generated? If not, lower real estate costs of ownership goes to increasing capital gain value over time.

    Lastly, if because of the tax code, there really is a benifit to the reit structure for the company, would it make sence to have a wholly owned reit subsidiary?

    One other thing, if it unlocks so much value to sell the real estate off, why is real estate such a good investment for someone else ( me, you, us ) to own.

    Like I said, as it is now, the real estate is an asset that can be borrowed against at hitorically low rates if money is needed for expansion, whether additional sites are bought or leased.

    Decide what you want to own diversify by style or industry, only use funds, rebalance yearly or rebalance by reading "how to make $1,000,000 in the stock market automatically. "

    It will automatically have you buy low and sell high.

    Well for one thing, it is cheaper to trade in and out of, buy more now and sell later at a higher price.

    For another, you can own it in an IRA or 401K account.

  • The Day I Was Surrounded By Market Timers [View article]
    Hi Brad

    Like I wrote, it is a good way to manage individual stocks also and was orriginally developed for that. It takes the emotion out of investing, will gradually have you sell over priced stocks and buy them back as they go down.

    ETFs for me are just another layer of safety and I invest in both ETFs and individual stocks.

    Hi Brad

    You can time the market but not the way most do by trying to predict where it will go. You need to do it unemotionally.

    First you have to decide what you want to always own. Only the amount will change.

    Then you buy as it goes down and sell gradually as it goes up. This is safer with funds as they are really really unlikely to go to zero. A REIT ETF could be one of them.

    Check out the AIM or automatic investment mamagement board on investorshub.com for more info or the book How to make $1,000,000 in the stock market automatically.

    Talk about sleeping well at night. This takes all the emotion out of investing. It captures the voitility of a security instead of just watchig it go up and down.

    Like I wrote above, this is safer with funds, but will work well with individua stocks also.

  • Are There Any Blue Chip REIT Bargains? [View article]
    Data centers will not be located in isolated areas. They will be located on top of the highest concentration of phone lines, maybe buying / renting older phone centers that are no longer needed because of smaller phone equipment size. For example high frequency stock traders want to have the absolute fastest connection they can.
