October 31, 2018 | We Received a Surprising Phone Call…

My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. Only where love and need are one, And the work is play for mortal stakes, Is the deed ever really done For Heaven and the future’s sakes. – Robert Frost, “Two Tramps in Mud Time” […]

October 31, 2018 | U.S. Entering Stage-One Recession

KINGSTON, NY, 31 OCTOBER 2018—Back in February, when the U.S. Federal Reserve signaled it would aggressively raise interest rates, foreign currencies started to fall against the dollar and equity markets across the globe began their dive into bear and correction territory. And, as we had long noted, with some $250 trillion in global debt, much […]

October 31, 2018 | Exploration is Worthless

Recently a reader asked something along the lines of: How do “Explorers” make money for investors? Are their stock prices only based on the “Greater Fool” theory? In your Casey Research days, you suggested that “Explorers” had the potential to become 10-baggers. Along the way, however, you discovered the Golden Runway, where companies typically were in line […]

October 31, 2018 | Anti-Trust Break-Ups Due for Monopolies–Much Needed

As the cost of capital rises and financial discipline moves back to the fore, consolidations and mammoth conglomerates that were enabled by ‘free money’ and lax regulation will naturally be unwound one way and another.  This creative destruction will help unleash competitive forces once more.  Jonathan Tepper explains in this segment as well as why […]

October 31, 2018 | Mr. Bubbles

A few days ago, when spewing about slagging markets, I also slagged a Houston-based financial dude and columnist for the august American publication, Forbes. In suggestig that Chicken Little, doomster, we’re-all-gonna-die, gonzo apocalyptic journalism is not worth following (and, so far, wrong) I held up a column by Jesse Colombo written in 2014. It warned of […]

October 31, 2018 | Why the Party Is Over

Another brutal day for bears. Be sure to check out my latest tout for AAPL, since, more than any other stock on the planet, it will determine whether the bull market is in fact dead. I find it extremely difficult to imagine why this would not be the case, considering that the Wall of Worry […]

October 31, 2018 | Taxes – Worldwide v Residency

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, I remember you mentioning US is the only country to tax worldwide income, it seems that China is moving to modify their IIT effective Oct 1, 2018, to include anyone staying in China for more than 183 days.

October 30, 2018 | Golden Idols, and Losing Faith in the Fed

Hello from Sarasota. I’m here because my mother, Tess, just had knee replacement surgery and she’s stuck in rehab for a while. It’s always a pleasure to visit Mom, and now she can’t run away from me. Ha! Anyway, though I’m on the road, I am still watching the markets. And you know how I’ve […]

October 30, 2018 | America’s Debt: A Recipe for Disaster

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – Back in Ireland for a few days, we take up an agreeable routine. We read and write in the morning. In the afternoon, we lay stone, closing the open gable ends of our old barn. We’ve done stone masonry in France, Argentina, and now here. (There are no stones in the Maryland […]

October 30, 2018 | Declines Hit the Most Splendid Housing Bubbles in America

Seattle prices fall sharply. New York condo prices nearly flat for the year. First feeble declines in San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, etc. Something is afoot. On the surface, it still looks strong.

October 30, 2018 | Dear Dr. Garth

“Love the blog,” writes Nick, genuflecting deeply. “Been a daily reader for years.” “It’s been a little while since you’ve delved into asset allocation for new money to invest, and I was wondering if you could touch upon it, given the recent drop in global markets. “My wife has recently changed employers and has had […]

October 30, 2018 | Long Loans Mean Reduced Spending and Saving Ability for Years to Come

Indebted households have reduced spending and saving ability for the years it takes them to pay off debt. Today Canadians owe a record $1.71 of debt for every $1.00 of disposable income.  This suggests an extended period of lower consumption ahead, even if interest rates did not rise further from here. On top of massive […]

October 30, 2018 | ‘Markets Move After Everyone Has Given Up’

Is it safe to go back in the water? Merely asking that question is to suggest that only an imbecile would dive fearlessly back in the drink. Even so, there are most surely enough imbeciles to keep stocks buoyant in the days or even weeks ahead. If they eventually are joined by panic-stricken bears as […]

October 29, 2018 | The Press Makes the News – They No longer Report It – A Sign of the End of Political Times

QUESTION:  Mr. Armstrong – On 08/23 you wrote a blog entry that seems to espouse two incongruous claims: (1) That the press has distorted & propagandized its news reporting so egregiously now that the American people give little credence to what it tells them (as evidenced by the Gallup polls results you showed), and (2) […]
