Many are Celebrating… You Shouldn’t

Every once in a while, I get slapped by the anchor. This time, my earpiece was fading in and out and I could not hear her interrupt.

The Dow and S&P 500 hit all time highs today, but the Russell, S&P 400 and NASDAQ did not. We have some worrisome signs, but they can and usually persist a while longer before any serious damage. Gold stocks were the leaders and I thank them for the immediate reward after the comments on Fox Business.

The Good, Bad & Ugly of Dividends

Here is a spirited debate I did on CNBC regarding dividends, not the panacea most investors think!

Dow 15,000, Dow 13,700 and Fox Business

I am going to be on Fox Business’ Markets Now at 1pm today discussing the abysmal jobs report on Friday, the stock market’s rather muted reaction and what lies ahead this quarter. 

There are a few scenarios which can play out from here and I will lay them out in detail this week in Street$marts, which I hope to work on in a few days. In short, my upside max of Dow 15,000 and downside of 13,700 remain the same. If you are or want to be bullish, the better and healthier path is sideways or down first and then an explosion to the upside later this quarter or over the summer.

Investing in Tech for Dividends

A very spirited debate about dividend paying technology stocks.

I laugh when I hear about how cheap tech stocks are because their price/earnings ratios are so low. They said the same thing to me about Apple when I trashed it at $625. And don’t forget that the banks and homebuidlers were “cheap” in 2007 right before 2008…

I am going to be on CNBC’s Closing Bell today at 4:10pm discussing dividend investing and why it may not be all that it’s cracked up to be!
