Get out of Bonds

March 22, 2013 – Comments (1)

There are several major asset classes in the investment markets:  stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, precious metals and cash.  Although you cannot time the market you can read the writing on the wall and change the weighting within your portfolio to the changing economic conditions.  Right now I think it's obvious that bonds have a much, much greater risk to your portfolio than any other asset sector.

My leading motto is: " I'd rather be approximately right than precisely inaccurate". Right now bonds have little upside potential and enormous downside risks so why would any rational investor buy bonds at this time??

Whether you agree with me or not there is a review I would highly recommend at this time.  At least review your portfolio, IRA and 401K and quantify your exposure to bonds.  Review for the following:

Bonds -- the longer the maturity date the higher your risk  [more]

Today's featured stocks -  I'll withhold the term  "stock pick" -  are highly volatile and before you consider adding them to your portfolio please do additional due diligence.

On days when the market seems to be regrouping or taking a breather is a good day to learn how to screen for stocks that are beating the trend.  Today I used Barchart to screen all the Stocks Hitting New Highs list, then sorted them for frequency and used the flipchart function to pan through the charts.  Some have risen too fast to continue much longer and some seem to be rising in spite of poor fundamentals but I decided to give you the charts anyway.

Warren Buffett Challenge

March 01, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: BRK-A

For those of you following my Warren Buffett Challenge here's a progress report.  The Challenge is to test my premise that with the right tools, a little knowledge and some common sense any individual investor can not only beat the market but also most of the professional mutual fund managers as well.  Each month I will compare 3 of my model portfolios against the S & P 500 Index and the results of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Class A  (BRK.A).  Here's this months comparisons:

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)

YTD - 13.83%
1 year - 29.39%

S & P 500

YTD - 6.61%
1 year - 13.46%

Barchart Van Meerten New High (VMNHI)

YTD - 8.03%
1 year - 16.95%

Barchart Van Meerten Speculative (VMSPC)

YTD - 5.33%
1 year - 24.81%

Barchart Van Meerten ValueLine Small Cap (VMVLS)

YTD - 28.33%
1 year 45.42%

1 year results
1st place VMVLS with 45.42%
2nd place BRK.A with 29.39%
3rd place VMSPC with 24.81%
4th place VMNHI with 16.95%
5th place S & P 500 with 13.46%

All 3 of my model portfolios beat the S & P 500 and 1 of my portfolios beat Warren Buffett

The portfolios can be viewed on my daily Barchart Stock Picks column and Marketocracy also keeps the scores on me with Morningstar keeping score on Warren Buffett.
