  2. Why the Majority Fail at Stock Investing By Chris Perruna
    The gleam and bright lights of Wall Street lure in many new investors each year, only to send them home crying to their friends and family. Why do so many people fail when it comes to the stock market? The reason is very simple: Hard work! Most people are looking for a quick buck or a fast path to riches. This is not the case when it comes to investing in individual stocks. If you wish to invest in stocks, treat it like a business, NOT A HOBBY. For example: A retail outfit can't make money if …

  10. The Cub; II By Al Thomas
    We keep hearing about this bear market and that the bottom is "in" or "very close" so we should be invested in these bargain basement prices to take advantage of the next bull so we won't lose out on the expected huge profits.This is not a big bear market - yet. What you are experiencing is the cub phase. The full size bear has not appeared. It is going to be one of the biggest, meanest, ugliest Kodiaks the stock market has ever experienced. If you think you have lost money in the last 2 ˝ yea…


  11. Attitude Is [Almost] Everything By David Chandler
    I often play a little game with myself when I have to go shopping; to the post office or on other errands.Sometimes I will just go about my business and make little comment or eye contact with the person serving me. Other times I will smile and talk to the person. Ask them how they are. Even make a joke!The difference is incredible. And it is amazing what affect it has on both them and me.If I take the effort to engage the person in a conversation and make eye contact - almost without exce…


  12. How Much Information Do You Need? By Al Thomas
    You have decided to buy some stock or mutual funds, but wonder which one to buy. You need more information so you call your broker for advice. A so-called “full service” broker will bury you with all kinds of reports, analysis sheets and other pretty pieces of paper, but will probably try to sell you something that makes him the most commission.Let’s see. What does Wall Street think you should know? Of course, you will want a company that is currently favorable or “hot” – like WorldCom used to…


  13. Stock Chart Reading By Al Thomas
    As an investor you will want to check out any equity before you buy it. Many investors go to Morningstar which is one of the largest providers of mutual fund information in the world. It is assumed that their information is correct. After all that is what you are paying for.Recently the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) called them on the carpet for not correcting an error within a reasonable time (whatever that is according to the SEC). Everyone makes errors and this was no big deal.It…


  14. Playing IPOs (Initial Public Offerings) By Larry Potter
    When IPOs were a hot item, we were constantly asked, “How do I get in on one?” To be sure, you should know about this type of play because the returns can be tremendous.In an IPO, shares that can be publicly traded on open exchanges are made available to the buying public. Every corporation has shares, but until the registry and filings are complete they aren't publicly tradeable. Usually a major brokerage firm will "underwrite" or do the homework and background legwork involved with securing …


  15. Performance Funds By Al Thomas
    Mutual funds are doing more and more to discourage investors from leaving them and taking their money to a better performing fund. What does better performing mean? It has nothing to do with who the manager is, what the expense ratio is or how well they performed over the past 5 or 10 years.Remember the old one, “What have you done for me lately?” That is the ONLY thing that counts. If you ever expect to make money in the stock market you must take the time to find the best performing no-load,…

  17. How We Eluded The Bear Of 2000 By Ulli G. Niemann
    The date October 13, 2000 will forever be embedded in my mind. It was the day after our mutual fund trend tracking indicator had broken its long-term trend line and I sold 100% of my clients’ invested positions (and my own) and moved the proceeds to the safety of money market accounts. Some people thought we were nuts, but I had come to trust the numbers.The shake out in the stock market, which started in April 2000, had all major indexes coming off their highs, violently followed by just as s…

  19. Mindset By Al Thomas
    In 1960 an engineer working for a watch company in Switzerland discovered that a small crystal would vibrate at a constant rate. He found this was so accurate that it could be used to calibrate time so he took it to company management and said it would make an entirely new kind of watch that had no springs and no gears. They could not imagine who would want such a thing. Swiss watches dominated world commerce. “Why change?”, they said. The bosses did not even bother to patent it.The inventor …

    During every secular bear market there are cyclical bull markets. Don’t let this confuse you. It is very simple. Read on.First let’s understand what a secular bear market is.

Don't you believe it.When I was a floor trader people would ask me how do you make sense of what is going on with all that yelling and arm-waving?
