January 02, 2014 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY , DDD , QQQQ

I am cautious this year.  While I think the market will be positive, I do think we need to tap the brakes.  I predict around 4% this year, based on my updated Rule of 20 analysis.  See why here:

The reasoning behind this rule doesn't make much sense.

First why would you combine a yield type of number (inflation) with a multiple type of number (PE)? It seems awfully arbitrary. Also why would you use inflation instead of the more obvious choice, interest rates?

4% is a reasonable central estimate, but I'm quite sure there are better ways to get there.

what are you looking at this year? I'm stuck holding some SPY, Phillip Morris, and. Few mortgage reits.  I scaled out of SPY earlier this week, but is don't know what to do with the cash right now

I really doubt I can find stocks that will perform as well as GNW and BIDU this year.

Might be time for emerging markets to recover. PM, DTV, CYD, LUKOY, JSHLY, BSBR, SSNLF

Neither of my brokers will let me buy SSNLF though (without an expensive phone trade). My next step is to see if I can buy Korean call options.
