Understand value to get rich on stocks

I got the rudest reply to a relevant question on my Sky News Business Channel program last night and it was one of the best answers my viewers could have ever heard. The perpetrator of this impertinence was Roger Montgomery and I have to admit he does it with a certain degree of respect and […]

Beware dependence on independents

With market news out of the US sparse on the ground, it’s timely to evaluate Independents’ Day in Canberra yesterday. In fact, what happens to resource stocks today should be interesting. On the decisions of Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott to desert their apparent roots — conservative politics — to jump into bed with Julia […]

Stock market to rise 30%

Based on what economists are seeing with US corporate earnings and where New York’s stock exchange indexes are, there’s reason to believe that the shares could rise over 30 per cent between now and March! That’s the view of Michel Knox, the chief economist of RBS Morgans in Brisbane. Of course, Knox is an economist […]

Has Wall Street ruled out a double-dip recession?

The first week in September on Wall Street might become a week to remember with economic data gradually turning to the more positive as better than expected results emerged from US number crunchers. And this is certainly ironic as September, historically, is the scariest month of all. That said, I made the point last week […]

Good economic news

Wall Street had another positive day with economic data again reminding the prophets of doom that there’s more life in the US economy than the so-called negative experts think. However, the big test for such a skittish market will be tonight’s jobs report. The Dow finished up 50.63 points or 0.49 per cent to 10,320.10 […]

Wall Street heads north

What a difference a day makes, especially when the doomsday merchants are brought to book by hard data. And even the Yanks got into the better economic readings, with manufacturing continuing to defy the double dip pessimists, helping the S&P 500 index to rack up its best percentage move since 7 July. The broad market […]

Wall Street shuffle

Another day on Wall Street and while there was little advancement, there was no substantial sell off which shows maybe the double dip concerns are already, partly, sold into the market. It’s like we’re in a Wall Street shuffle, back and forth until some really good or really bad news happens. It’s bad news for […]

How long does a rally last?

After a pretty substantial fall on Wall Street overnight, just after a big rise during the trading day before, the question has to be asked — how long does a rally last? In this market, the answer can be one day but the real question for the long-term investor is, should we remain in stocks […]

Bumpy ride ahead

My Saturday morning was either going to be made or broken by two big news stories out of the US. The first was the second quarter GDP for the Yanks and the second was what the Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke had to say at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to a mob of central bankers. It turned […]

Dow under 10,000

Wall Street has taken us into worrying territory with the Dow finishing below the psychologically important 10,000-level. This finish puts an intense focus on what the US economic growth reading will be tonight for the second quarter. A good figure would create a relief rally but a shocker could cripple confidence and the market. The […]

A rise, but why?

Wall Street limped across the line to end in positive territory but it wasn’t a bad effort given the fact that new housing sales recorded a terrible figure. And what looks a little surprising is the price of oil rose, which could be seen as a promising sign in the current investment world of disappointing […]

The ABC of not being scared

On a day when Wall Street has set us up for a pretty rough time on the stock market after existing home sales fell a whopping 27.2 per cent in the US, it has become essential to put some balance into the economic debate, particularly following a Four Corners report on Monday. Let me be […]
