Focus on... Gold

How much do you have invested in gold, silver and mining shares? I'll wager it isn't enough.

Focus on... Oil

We've already had a huge crash. Can oil fall much further? Sure. Is it likely? No.

Do what Alan Sugar does: Buy cheaply.

Buying quality global assets cheaply is one of our primary investment philosophies. Do it with enough and you can make a strongly positive contribution to your wealth, given sufficient time. And who doesn't have a few years? If you don't you shouldn't be investing!

Oil and energy investment opportunities

In late March we invested into Global Energy shares and we increased our investments in Emerging Markets' shares. The former is already up around 12% and the latter 7%.

Commodity prices and Russia

Why is no-one talking about Russian stocks as buys? Because investors seem to only want to buy expensive assets. Too funny. And detrimental to wealth creation/preservation.

But we haven't had sustained Deflation for decades!

It seems to us that Deflation is something we will all get used to. We haven't experienced it sustainably for decades. And THAT is the issue. Everyone assumes that what has been will be always. And THAT is what we have been trying to get people to see as nonsense for years.

US Treasuries

Nearly a third of advanced countries (or those which seek to be advanced) are right now in deflation.

DISinflation leading potentially to DEflation

Central bankers, bankers and politicians hate Deflation. Look at all that debt which would accumulate in real terms. Of course, the people would benefit greatly from Deflation. Business costs would fall. Living costs would fall. The Government and the Bank of England don't want you to experience falling prices. You Couldn't Make It Up.

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. What a difference a ‘week’ makes.

From a view with just 25% conviction a few weeks ago i.e. that ...the stock market... would rise ongoing, we have come to the conclusion that we have seen the bottom.

2008 and 2009: Years of return OF capital, not necessarily return ON capital

We are close to a major turning point in the stock market and during the weekend I considered very carefully what action to take.
