What’s Next for Stocks, Bonds, Real Estate and the Economy

Stocks continue to trade based on the possibility of further Federal reserve easing and a full blown QE3.

Why Successful Investing Is Like Playing Great Golf

Outstanding real life investment success also results from simply not making the equivalent of a ‘bad shot’ in golf and just ‘hitting it down the middle of the fairway’. Just because a company has a decisive edge on the competition now, doesn’t mean that an entirely different or better product won’t show up far sooner than you imagined. Great golfers all know that putters, wedges, fair way woods and drivers all have their place in the game of golf…much like a successful investor!

Avoiding “Bad Shots” When Investing

In many ways, I think that successful investing is analogous to playing great golf. One of the ‘bad shots’ that I repeatedly see is that people don’t have a financial plan or an investment strategy to accomplish that plan.

On March 22, the JOBS Act was approved by the US Senate in a 73-26 vote and President Obama has since signed the act into law. This law was an excellent show of of bipartisan support which we see on very rare occasions within the US Senate. Here’s what the law means in a nutshell and this is how it will affect you as an entrepreneur or an investor:

Do We Live In A Timing and Selection Culture?

Even though research repeatedly shows that unforeseeable events and indeterminate variables mean that no one can forecast markets for an extended period of time, we are certainly a timing and selection culture. When I refer to timing, I mean the decisions about when to be in and out of the markets and when to move among different market sectors. When I talk about selection, I mean the decisions about which stocks, funds or managers will outperform.

Do You Have Any Hobbies That Make Money?

For a simple example, if a company you have invested in is doing well, this also appreciates the value of its stocks or shares and therefore can be sold for more making you a profit.
