With your input and our assistance -- together - we can alter the ... Slope of Hope
BLISSFUL IGNORANCE: It's astonishing during these volatile times that mongering bulls continue to ignore elevated risk and the public fails to realize it's always about the MARKETING OF THE MARKET done at YOUR expense. It remains your hard-earned money frozen in stocks that were supposed to lead but only led lower, taking down your portfolios, wealth, and dreams with them. All that we have written and made public over the last 8 years is being played out in live time - including dire warnings to an intransigent US Congress.
DOGMA HAS ENDED: The chaos rampant in today's markets proves there is no reliable source to ascertain true value of one's own holdings. Best proof is found when the ratings agencies’ cannot accurately evaluate their own earnings. Major brokerages are imploding upon themselves from their own negligence in managing risk. Logically, if they cannot do for themselves, they cannot do for clients and if greed to deceive clients was not their main motivation, (treating clients like cash cows rather than sacred customers), then Wall Street would not have been obliterated in a matter of weeks.
QUERY: If money supposedly doubles every 10 years - then why have investors (following the advice of market gurus holding those 'must own' recommendations) only netted an annualized returned of 3.4% from the top of 2000? Proof is set out throughout this website that the misinformation machine of Wall Street media, raft of economists, and governments are all working overtime to convince the public all is well. Yet this bear market is worse than the 1937 period. (SEE) CONTACT US.
WALL OF SCAM ARTISTS: This is why we say: With friends like commission driven stock mongers, who needs enemies? The premise of those who say “every dip is your next buying opportunity” begs the question why wasn't every rally also your 'opportunity' to take profits? This is why we dedicated this site to RETAIL INVESTORS whose trust, confidence, and wealth have been destroyed. Viewers/investors of the idiot box assured their research is sound believing CNBC is the Holy Grail.
** (Bloomberg) 08/22/08 - Analysts' Accuracy Forecasting Worst in 16 Years ** (Reuters) 10/21/08 - In a season of chilling numbers American households lost over $8 trillion of wealth last year ** (Bloomberg) Jan. 13 - Hedge Funds Lost $350 Billion Last Year, Most on Record ** A Chimpanzee clobbers investment funds with performance - http://www.investmentpostcards.com
We said those VENERABLE FIRMS were VULNERABLE, and behind every big financial headline is a crime. With government's deliberate failures to embrace reality and act early, we have moved from the GRANDEST LARCENY to a RANSOM demand/citizen bailout. Wall Street, as it operated for the past 75 years, was obliterated in a matter of weeks; that we are witnessing this violent death in broad daylight has traumatized investors everywhere.
This site was created and launched two days before the July 2007 top, which we forecasted in our January 2007 prediction. Only 7 of Dow 30 participated at 14K, thus a non-confirmation stealth bear market commenced as the majority of stocks investors “had to buy” into 2000 top were valued at less than 1/2 of their all time highs. Only now, thousands of points lower and with the benefit of hindsight, do those look-back experts believe Goldilocks fairy tale ended in October '07. Too much is made about lower interest rates, oil, or even a stronger Dollar as other unexpected scenarios are now starting to unfold.
All the dominos have tipped over, as the blind leading the blind toppled just about everything in sight: U.S. stocks large and small, the financial industry and outside of it, foreign stocks, oil and other commodities, real-estate investment trusts, and formerly booming emerging markets like India and China. Even gold has lost 10% from its highs earlier this year. Not even cash seems entirely safe as money-market funds barely averted a "run on the bank."
The worst case scenario is underway. Stemming from market turbulence, there is a lot of bloodletting as shareholders are forced to react to never-ending devaluations despite claims about the safety of investing for the “long term".Other fabrications such as markets climbing a "wall of worry" come from those 'Pied Pipers of Destruction.’ The so-called TV experts, reckless lapdog media, exhort some counter-rally action after-the-fact, when it is too late to react, hyping some percentage nonsense.
CNBC's audience is down some 61%. It remains an ironic source of humor as Cramer, Kudlow, "Mad- Fast Money Gang" all pounding the table, acting like cheerleaders at a pep rally, telling the crowd to buy - buy - buy stocks all the way down. People forget Japan had one of the largest asset bubbles ever witnessed, with the Nikkei off by 66% from a peak in 1989. This is a foreboding model to the fragility to our financial entire system that can seize-up. (*See just how long term chart below)
DEMAND DESTRUCTION: The campaign behind this financial website is geared for retail investors to receive our counsel in their portfolio restoration/resuscitation.Through our dedicated research, in a union, you make your own trade wherever you wish. The individual investor is blameless; they 'slaved to save' and trusted an industry that traffics in deception and tainted research. You will notice there is no advertising posted, we are beholden to no one. (SEE) MYTH Page
From a weekly chart presentation (excerpted) *1/25/08 - Pre - GOLD KNEW INSTANTLY -Bubbles can't be defused through incremental adjustments in interest rates. Secular bear market tend to run for 17 years in duration, taking stocks from hyper-overvalued levels back down to deeply undervalued levels. It only took gold 30 years to reach new highs...that real long term.
Despite fines paid for corrupted research from Dot.Com era , this time the "leading stocks" leading lower are the financial's as banks-brokerages are collapsing. The FDIC's own 'watch list’ jumped from 70 to 11, also revealing insured banks/savings institutions' earnings were down from $36.8 billion a year earlier, an 86% haircut institutions cannot afford. The corollary of shutdowns will overwhelm FDIC's ability to insure deposits. At last count, the Credit Crisis is $500 Billion and counting.
We repeat: Following the biggest moves is when most traders lose the most amount of money. This is because they have both frustrations and visions of grandeur. Annoyed that they missed the easier trade, they attempt to make more out of less by pressing trades when they're not there or taking too large a position to try to make up ground.
The typical response by media will be to rejoice on up days and from their misguided ways; but their money is parked in CD, and they lack insight and appreciation of unforeseen forces while shareholder wealth is destroyed. Media always claim that, in the long term, things work out. Well, many an iconic company is now trading at 20-year lows. In short, this is as good as it gets for the next many years.

A decision made by us is to provide the same diligent research, techniques, and counsel we do for our professional subscriber broker-base. For the first time, we extend the same invitation to you, the retail investor, whose monies and trust were placed in the cesspool of capital market greed in pursuit of The American Dream morphed into the never ending nightmare.
Witness the massive confusion and puzzled chatter underway from so-called experts who cannot comprehend nor agree to current status of today's markets. Blame is attached first to the FED for doing too much or not enough. Then, arguing for a rate cut might be inflationary or deflationary. A question must be asked: How can these gurus formulate sector opinions WITHOUT understanding the current economic implications?
We propose a union, a co-partnership, to review your stocks and other financial instruments [bonds, futures, mutual funds] already owned by you. This way, you can ignore hollow talk from your broker about the next opportunity. The implicit promise at the core of the American Experience has been to work hard, play by the rules, and tomorrow will be better than today. Yet this financial nightmare never ends.
We will make proposals in advance where proper add-ons can be done to lower your core breakeven prices, or when to take profits and where protections should be placed. Our method is to create income for YOU, not your broker. Their employed choice, i.e., after-the-fact pretext, is always to ‘buy and hold’ for the long term. This is why portfolios have been languishing for eight years. The misadvise of your broker to buy that next dip is why your cost increases and your hope decreases.
Conversely, our YIELD Portfolio is comprised of growth & income stocks that pay you to hold them, not the other way around generating nearly 30% YOY non-compounded basis, something industry experts say cannot be done. Unlike gurus that start sentences one day with "I think" followed weeks later with "I thought," (never an apology) ... we never equivocate. You will not see any advertisements associated to this site, we owe no one anything other than dedicated service to our clients.
More damaging than the 1929 Crash, the Crash of 2000 continuing into the 2002 lows resulted in $7 trillion in losses from the "free advice" offered on TV. Consequently, you also must accept ...those same "experts" who never saw the 2000 top are the same "so-called mavens" who will never see the real bottom. ...Blind leading the blind*
Now into the 9th year from 2000 highs, the Bear market lives on where only indexes have been manipulated higher while stocks lag as most investors are now left to their own devices. Then you are faced with the questions ... "How long is LONG TERM" and "Will I ever get my initial investment back?"
MORONS ON PARADE OR YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR: We’ve always said ... "FREE TV’ advice is very costly that comes from quasi-business shows with hidden agendas. Among so many self-proclaimed mavens is our favorite comedian James Cramer, star talking head of CNBC and when only 1 out of 5 trades might work ... its never his fault.
Pretending to be "just like" his viewers, (contracted) for a million dollar TV salary, perks from selling books where true conflict of interest exists. He sits in cash safely parked in money markets and CD's … NOT in the market. He tells viewers to hang-on to any number of destructive suggestions, e.g. "back up the truck" on SHLD at $190 buy AEM at $83 (all time high) and his call on BSC was legionary as insiders were dumping.
... On 3/12/08, Bear Stearns was trading over $60 a share … “I am imploring everyone NOT TO GET OUT OF BEAR. " Two days later, BSC had a $2 bid and it was no laughing matter for the longs. The only ironic footnote is that Henry Blodget, the poster boy of the Dot.Com fiasco, now defends Cramer *
