How Will We Know the Winners of the Pandemic?

What counts as a real shift … or just a fad? Which changes will last … and which will change back? The pandemic has given us plenty of new tricks. We’re working from home instead of offices. We’re connecting with teachers online instead of in classrooms.  We’re having our groceries delivered to our doorsteps rather than making supermarket trips. And we’re having family events over Zoom as an alternative to traveling. We’ve definitely learned to cope with the effects of COVID-19 on the world. Businesses have, too. Companies are adjusting their physical store layouts to follow social-distancing guidelines. And they’re[…]

Sequence Of Returns Risk – Why You Should Care

Sequence Of Returns Risk – Why You Should Care Sequence of returns risk? Sounds like something only old, rich, retired people have to worry about… As long as I save up 25X my annual expenses and hit my FI number, I never have to worry about money ever again, right? Wrong. Sequence of returns risk is the No. 1 risk that can cause early retirees to run out of money. So pay attention my young FIRE friends… this stuff is important. Some of the math can be confusing (it took me a while to wrap my puny brain around it),[…]

TSLA Prediction (Check!) + Pot Stocks in 2021

One down, two to go! I recently made a few Tesla predictions: TSLA will be added to the S&P 500. The company will create the very first fully 3D-printed car. TSLA could become the next company to buy into bitcoin. After just a few weeks, I’m happy to say one has already unfolded. On December 21, TSLA will be added to the S&P 500. Tesla met (and actually far exceeded) all of the index’s requirements. In my opinion, this is well overdue, but it’s no less bullish for the stock. There are dozens of ETF’s that try and mimic the[…]

2 Hated Stocks That Will Bounce Back in 2021

2020 has been a hard year in many respects. But for one sector of the stock market, it was absolutely atrocious. Property and casualty insurers saw so many hurricanes in 2020 that we had to start using the Greek alphabet to name the storms. It’s not surprising that their stocks are down on the year. But I don’t expect that to continue in 2021. In today’s Market Insights video, we’re buying two insurers that will bounce back from a tough 2020: And if you missed it, click here to check out my Tuesday predictions article.

No. 1 Black Friday Deal for America 2.0

Happy Turkey Day! Back in high school, this day had a different meaning for me. After filling up on a terrific meal, I had to mentally prepare for work that night — folding clothes for hours on end at the local mall. When Black Friday rolled around … phew! You know. If you’ve ever braved the Black Friday crowds, you’d see that all that folding gets demolished in minutes. The leftovers scattered in piles on the floor. Let’s just say, I’ll never work another Black Friday in retail. Thinking about it today — with Paul’s voice in my head —[…]

4 Big Stock Predictions for 2021

As 2020 approaches the finish line, it’s a good time to evaluate what lies ahead. If this year taught us only one thing, it’s that we can’t predict everything. But even without a clear path, we can still head in the right direction. Right now, it’s looking like these four things will happen in 2021. Dollar Devaluation and a Stock Market Rally It’s time to get out of cash and into stocks. With a high likelihood of fiscal stimulus and the Federal Reserve’s pledge to keep rates low, the outlook is grim for the U.S. dollar. A COVID-19 vaccine will[…]
