everyone that I am a Warren Buffet disciple when it comes to investing — I believe that, when it comes to individual stock investing, what matters is the long term performance of a company. I am not a trader: I’m not interested in making a quick buck or in the day-to-day gyrations of the market. So even with all the bad news that’s out there right now, I’m OK — I just put more money into my Roth IRA. It means I’m getting more of my portfolio’s equities on the cheap. But when it comes to individual stocks, I’m starting to see some evidence that maybe buying and holding isn’t such a great ...
Is “Buy and Hold” Still a Good Investing Strategy?
From the time I started investing for the long term, almost all the advice I’ve read has pointed towards buying stocks (usually in the form of index mutual funds) and holding them for decades, rather than following trends in the news and trying to buy and sell stocks frequently. The reasons for this strategy were always similar to these: Stocks are risky and volatile, but provide the best opportunity for growth over the long term with annual average returns of 7% to 12%, depending on whom you ask, higher than any other type of investment. Trading costs money thanks to fees, and these fees eat into your returns. They exist ... market research, surveys and trends
Watch out for INFLATION, Invest in GOLD | Best Financial Advice ...
I used to care a damn about economics and finance. ‘Money is meant to be spent’ was my mantra. The result of this philosophy was a broken down life and debts up to my eyeballs. Then comes along Robert Kiyosaki and his best-selling book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, and life was never the same again. After reading the book, my eyes opened up to my idiotic philosophy on money, investments and finance. I finally realized why I am broke and needy all the time. Jim Rohn rightly puts it; “The philosophy of the rich versus the poor is this: The rich invest their money and spend what is left; the poor spend their money and ... market research, surveys and trends


Some Investors Are Ready for a New Strategy -
“We are in a trader’s market,” says Michael Sonnenfeldt, chief executive of Tiger 21, a forum of wealthy investors, “where long-term investing should be shunned but trading opportunities should be seized.” IF the last 18 months have taught Americans anything, it’s that market collapses don’t discriminate. Even the most sophisticated and affluent investors lost big chunks of their fortunes. Access to the most exclusive hedge funds did not always limit the damage, as many participants had hoped it would.

Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA): A Tool For The Individual ...
Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA) is an active portfolio management strategy that is growing in popularity with institutional investors. In 1988, over $20 billion in pension and mutual funds were being managed according to TAA guidelines, and that amount is increasing daily [5]. Some recent estimates place the current figure at $40 billion [11]. But what is TAA, and is it an appropriate strategy for individuals? This article defines TAA, explains why it is suddenly so popular, and gauges its potential for success from an individual's point of view. TAA and Alternative Strategies Almost all portfolio management strategies are ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Apple's Cheap But Intel, Cisco, Dell are Cheaper
The Tech Sector is the cheapest of the eleven sectors covered at Technology is 16.2% undervalued versus 3.4% overvalued at the April 26th highs for the US equity averages. Within technology I favor the brand names, as stocks that are highly liquid fit best within my “Buy and Trade” investment strategy. An obvious stock to choose should be Apple Inc ( AAPL ), but that name is only 8% undervalued at this time. It is therefore not a portfolio candidate at least for this week. The tech stocks I favor are rated STRONG BUY or BUY according to ValuEngine and are at least 15% undervalued. These companies also had better ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why is CNBC saying bye-bye to buy and hold strategy?
The time-tested buy-and-hold investment mantra has become so unpopular that even those who advocate the strategy don’t refer to it by that name anymore. Now terms like “buy and harvest” and “buy and trade” have replaced the old “buy and forget” philosophy once so popular among active stock market investors. The change reflects a spreading attitude that in an age of 24/7 financial news and information, which can mean tremendous volatility, it no longer makes sense to buy a stock and then check back on its performance five, seven or ten years later. “The buy-and-hold and passive investing approach works really well in certain ...
What does buy-and-hold mean when 15 years' worth of capital gains ...
1) There is a major survivorship bias that most (conveniently?) ignore when referring to the oft-quoted Ibbottson studies that are used as empirical basis for the thesis that stocks provide the best return over the long term. Simply put, companies go bankrupt but indices do not. Only General Electric survived amongst 30 member stocks of the Dow Jones Average. So, if you had invested in each individual stock (by the way, investable index products would not appear on the scene for the next half century), 29 out of 30 would be worth zero. 2) The second major issue is that - contrary to one of the previous comments, stock returns ...
