Looking To Get Back in the Stock Market?

Looking To Get Back in The Stock Market?   Be careful, and make a plan. 

 

Tough choice,  (November 26th 2008)   Market trends seem to be ever changing.  I have put a buy list together.  This is a good starting point.  Fundamentals change quickly.  My Buy list targets include MDR, MTW, CME, CHAIN, YGE, Yingle Solar has been beaten up with declining margins; but, supported by locked in government contracts.  CME has took a recent dive as the market has perged so many hedge fund investors that have left the market for one reason or another.  Chicago Mercantile Exchange has strong earnings, and has a great business hosting futures trading.   New government legislation bringing in new traders with a is essentially the market maker.  I am sure CME can make profitable margins, and should continue to focus on consolidating markets while creating a participant conscious market.  I took GOOG off my buy list because of declining margins and fear of declining numbers across industry players.  Last month Google was a favorite. Best hope some new model that better reconizes Google value to the world. Citi Bank looks to have a big upside potential and only $7 left until zero. I hope have a really good chance of making money over the long run.

You can make a fortune buying and selling at the extremes of this market  is a comment from the Kirk Report.   

(Ocotober 31, 2008) I am staying out of investing at least until the new year. Very excited about locking in my first year of tradig profits.  In addition to a recent removal of an adrenal gland in the wrong place makes me understand stock trading is not for myself.  I still like to watch, and reflect on the market developments.   The biggest thing I learned is to lower my expectation and limit how much I watch the market.  Be patient, and wait for stocks to move into your target buy or sell range.  Keep hard work, experience, and sense of humor on your side.  The market still has life to it. 
  Traders  moving the market when it goes higher, and over exuberance relentlessly leaves profit on the short side.  Investors are buying long term here and some are selling.  Green Span comments early in 2008 on U.S economy did put our economy exposed to high oil prices.

(October 31st 2008 list)

GOOG – is gaining market share today, and offering value.  GOOG price multiple for years after 2010 are too low.  Goog seems to ad value and create opportunity.  Risks remain in slowing trends in advertising budgets.

CROX – look likes  dicey here;  over sold and has a large short position.  I don’t see Crox as a fad and earning are strong.  Crox is trading at a price you could make 10X your money in a few years if things go Crox’s way.  The quality absorbing plastic shoes are nice; the hard plastic shoes should be faded out.  Sure inventories may be high; but, that seems to be a strategy from beginning of the trend.  Sending piles of Crox slippers to retailers to boost consumer confidence in the style of Crox

MDR – looks like a takeover candidate, value play, strong infrastructure company with buyers

YGE –  Solar pricing should be strong with government assistance; but, depressive oil prices could be diffucult.   Reasonable priced growth stock.

COF – The recent injections of cash should boost earnings in 2009.  Further weakness in consumer credit debt is expected with the relief valve of the government cash COF may be a worthy investment.

What direction will the world take? Lifes economics

 Is the glass half full or half empty?  Hard questions are important to ask each other.   “Have no fear for no one can stop the time.” Bob Marley Redemption songs.   “People can go in any direction they want to.”  Topstockblog. 

Corporations  may have been created to make profits.  They do deliver enormous benefits to the world.  A number of values and standards have been accounted for as society has demanded higher standards for people and the environment.   Do we have to continue to look at places we can go wrong? Yes.  Should we just let corporations make the rules? No.  History tells us that great mistakes can be made with out very careful consideration of our actions and those of others.  We should look for warely  for potential Trojan horses.   The war in Iraq led by George Bush Junior and religious fanatics have produced a hell on earth for so many people living in fear and losing their lives.  Society can fix and best manage drawbacks with careful communication, trading opportuities, and consideration.   Delivering the maximum benefit of services to people when they add value.   People are best served when compensated for looking to the future.  We have some compensations in place.  We can add further incentives to decrease U.S consumption and help future generations of people. Taxes, Health care and banking are places society can lower costs and boost long term functioning.   Citizens who choose to consume less could be compensated with  tax relief, debt relief, and health care.  Is this why checks of welfare were made to poor people in the United States to reduce consumption while maintaining basic needs of people?  Welfare became seen and abused by the masses.  People in the United States now have children for money they will recieve.  We should motivate the least fortunate to not have children rather have more children worstening the effects on society.   Further communication and understanding of purpose on earth is needed to share benefits most appropriately.   We can reduce consumption by increases in technology, and a public with higher moral standards of heaven on earth.    We currently save money in banks, physical property, and intellectual property.  We can boost benefits for increases in education to meet challenges of the future and present most appropriately.   Some save massive amounts and yet others consume massive amounts with no concern for others.  Are they really that much better than the those that save or the less fortunate?  I think corporations could adopt more regulations.  Their will always be winners in losers in life.  It is a perception or reality of force that leads us to reality.  We should value what we leave for future generations.  Corporations can not make endless profits in a confined space with limited resources available?   The economy is best served with a long term out look trying to account for draw backs.   We can build an economic system that best meets peoples needs.   We have had a strongest functioning economy defined by any period of time.  The world needs to work closely together to share common ground.  We need to communicate thoroughly and repeatedily to meet the standards of the world while looking to protecting the planet for the future. Many competing economic systems have been used thought out the history of man.  Many of them with a large warring component.  We want to stay away from war and protect all people from violence.   We can offer minimum standards to the world.  Millions of people in the world live in a growing dangerous world.   This situation is best managed with considerable thought, and much communication.  Shared concern.    We can manage the number of people on the earth and share benefits with rules better than the current system.  I estimate the world can sustain around 2 billion people if all people received minimum standards we have grown accustomed to in the United State.  We should compensate those who choose not to have children to protect the future.  Growing together and communication can greatly reduce violence.    If   humans can go in so many different directions.  Then why are so few of them the right?
