Read This Now if You Don’t Have a Time Machine

Today’s Consumer Price Index report has investors freaking out. Inflation has reached a new 40-year high — hitting 9.1% last month. And the stock market is getting kicked in the teeth. From their highs, the S&P 500 is off 20% and the Nasdaq is off close to 30%. Many investors are selling their stocks and hiding under their beds. That’s a big mistake — especially if you own quality businesses. Others have cash on the side and are waiting for the right time to invest. When do they plan to buy stocks? They usually say that they’ll wait “until the[…]

Bartering Is Alive and Well!

Tattoos. Design work. Piano lessons. Photography. All things a friend of mine gets free through bartering! Remember that old fashioned way to transact?! Something our ancestors did for thousands of years before cash money became a thing? 🙂 I’ll be honest and say I haven’t given it any thought in at least a decade (I once wanted to trade a website for a house – thinking it would be cool to exchange a digital property for a physical one, lol…), but now my brain is on fire with all the possibilities! I ran into her the other day, and after[…]

Like Santa and the Easter Bunny, This Market Signal Doesn’t Exist

Alpha Investor founder Charles Mizrahi has been getting one question a lot lately… “Are we in a recession?” If you look at consumer sentiment — which is at all-time lows — you might think it’s very near on the horizon. But if you look at the strength in the job market, it’s harder to see the edge of a recession. And that’s why Charles isn’t tossing his hat in the ring to predict the future. Because economies are very complex and nearly impossible to predict. So, if you’re waiting for a perfect market to invest in, you’ll end up waiting[…]

Don’t Throw in the Towel — Here’s Why…

If you’re ready to throw in the towel on stocks… Please give me 30 seconds. I know stocks have suffered their worst first half of the year since 1970. I know the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are in bear markets. And I know consumer sentiment hasn’t been this low since they started tracking it in 1952. But I don’t want you to do something that you’re going to kick yourself for later. What I’m about to tell you comes from 40 years of experience on Wall Street — not some financial media hype you get from financial news shows. Heck,[…]
