Most investors jump into their investment programs without a clear understanding of the process, the securities, or the risks involved in the effort. Few hold valid expectations, and most choose to ignore the cyclical nature of the investment marketplace. This poor preparation is an endemic problem of our society, made profitable by Wall Street, for Wall Street. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5630 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5630 Thu, 18 Oct 2012 12:53:33 PST Private Workshops: You and Steve Selengut Private Workshops: You and Steve Selengut--- whatever you want to talk about.

Too much investor time and analytical effort is wasted trying to predict course corrections… even more is squandered comparing portfolio Market Values with a handful of unrelated indices and averages. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5648 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5648 Mon, 18 Jun 2018 10:49:41 PST The Art of Investing: Working Capital Model based Asset Allocation This method of looking at things will get you where you want to be without the hype that Wall Street uses to create unproductive transactions, foolish speculations, and incurable dissatisfaction. It provides a valid use for portfolio Market Value, but far from the judgmental nature Wall Street would like. It's use in this model, as both an expectation clarifier and an action indicator for the portfolio manager on a personal level, should illuminate your light bulb. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5649 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5649 Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:19:27 PST Your 401(k) Investments and the IGVSI Smack, right up alongside the head. Your 401(k) investment program deteriorated rapidly as the stock market and the economy weakened. Who would have thought that there was so much risk of loss in those mutual funds, and ETFs? Fortunately, the pain is most often temporary, but the timing of the recovery could alter some participant retirement schedules and benefits--- not to mention the hefty confiscation level retirees can count on from Uncle Sam. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5659 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5659 Wed, 28 Oct 2009 02:43:38 PST Making A Volatile Stock Market Your VBF (very best friend) Call it foresight, or hindsight if you want to be argumentative, but a long-term view of the investment process eliminates the guesswork and points pretty clearly toward a trading mentality that keys on the very natural volatility of the hundreds of investment grade value stocks out there for your portfolio building attention. Market Cycle Investment Management makes market volatility your Very Best Friend http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5660 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5660 Mon, 09 Dec 2013 08:19:19 PST The Dow Jones Industrials --- A Blue Chip Average No More To most investors, the DJIA provides all of the information they think they need, and they worship it mindlessly, thinking that this time tattered average has mystical predictive and analytic powers far beyond the scope of any other market number. It's Wall Street's rendition of 'The Emperor's New Clothes'. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5662 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5662 Wed, 09 Feb 2011 11:57:54 PST Year End Portfolio Window Dressing... Always Better To Look Smart, etc. Perhaps ninety percent of the price movement in the equity markets is the result of institutional trading, and institutional money managers seem to be more concerned with politics and marketing than they are with investing. They are trying to impress their major clients with their brilliance by reporting ownership of all the hot tickets and none of the major losers. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5666 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5666 Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:26:49 PST A Preemptive, Timeless, Portfolio Protection Strategy Both Market Cycle Investment Management and The Working Capital Model were nearly ten years old when the robust 1987 rally became the dreaded Black Monday, (computer loop?) correction on October 19th. Sudden and sharp, that 50% or so correction proved the applicability of a methodology that had fared well in earlier minor downturns. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5669 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5669 Sat, 22 Aug 2015 07:47:53 PST This Stock Market Correction Is Dead (September 2009) Actually, hindsight and the Investment Grade Value Stock Index (IGVSI) Bargain Level Monitor tell us that it died early in March 2009. More realistically, however, corrections don't really die quite so abruptly. They are supplanted by rallies--- and vice versa. http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5671 http://articleadvocates.com/ArticleAdvocates/Display.cfm/5671 Mon, 22 Aug 2011 04:34:47 PST
