Trump will probably stop sanctions to Russia. Europe will follow.
Time to invest in the Eastern Superpower.
My play is on small caps, because anything else in Russia is an oil investment.
Too bad I won’t get dividends on that stuff.

Chile is a paradise in South America for free market lovers.
Chile even has a private pension system set to withstand the future and a healthy market economy.

Is that why its largest listed companies give investors an healthy 3.67 % dividend yield? (more…)

Taking the safer risky bet: I’m buying ALIBABA (BABA) rather than Vips April 30, 2015

I feel a dangerous attraction: I like to buy recent IPOs below the IPO price.

It boosts my ego: ‘Hey, I am smarter then the “HIPE” guys!”

If flattens my laziness: “They had to go through all the uncomfortability of signing an IPO, then had to wait. Blah I do it now and at a better price with a simple click”.

Of course I know all that is wrong. I am likely to chose the companies that have lost momentum. Let’s say I was lucky with Facebook, so I am going for ALIBABA now.

I am a silver miner today!

I am a silver miner today

  • Silver could be a safe haven in case of disasters.
  • Silver besides being a precious metal, is very much needed by industry (so I read somewhere).
  • Pan American Silver Corp. (PAAS) is World’s second Silver producer/miner, and I can’t figure out which is the first.
  • 3% dividend yield is something I like very much, specially considiring that Payout ratio is  an honest 30%
  • Forward P/E ( Dec 31, 2014): 10.01 seems cheap enough to me, although current P/E = 30 is quite high. (more…)

3 reasons not to use Stop Loss – answer to Jon Trausti’s question about Free Stock Strategy May 28, 2012

Posted by deminvest in investment, nasdaq, stocks.

Dear Jon, thanks for your very good question about Free Stock Strategy :

Dont you ever use “Sell Stop” for stocks you buy? … for example, many suggest you always use 5% “sell stop”.. or 10% .. and just buy some other stocks, if the ones you bought are not going in the direction (up) you hoped/wanted ?

It is for 3 reasons

Reason 1)

The only way to make money on the stock market is to buy low and sell high.

Most stocks move together up in good times and down in bad times. Automatic stop loss results in forcing to sell a bunch of stocks, even good ones, as the market sinks.

With my strategy, I have to buy every month, even when markets point down. In bad times I can hardly sell any stock because they can’t hit “up 40% target” in bad times.

As soon as market recovers most stocks that I buy in bad times hit my 40% up target and I make money.

What I accomplish that way is buying low and selling high. The best think is that I do it automatically, without having to understand or forecast what is going on in the Economy.

S&P 500 and NASDAQ 2002 to 2012

If we look at the last 10 years, we can see that if I had bought every month and if I had a stop, I’d have  sold with a big losses every stock the next month in 2002, 2007 and 2008. (more…)

Luxottica is World’s top eyeglasses producer. It is Italian and will enjoy great advantages as the EURO goes down. A large share of LUX’s revenues are in USD, most of its expenses are EURO.

I can’t resist Google at F P/E=16: I just bought 3 GOOG shares April 28, 2010

I did it:

Bought 3 GOOG @ $528.6735 $-1,590.5205 Executed

I don’t care if Google was kicked out of China. Google still is a fast growing company, which is doing great now and which will do terrific if companies get back on advertising spending as the economy picks up.

Google is growing Revenue up 23% year on year, Earnings up 37%, has 26B cash, about 15% of its market cap.

Is this Adaptec controller good?
Does this Adaptec controller suck?

Hate Ketchup, but love Heinz’s fat dividends! I’m buying 23 HNZ shares in 5 minutes December 29, 2009

Heinz yields 3.9 % dividends. I can hardly resist such juicy dividends, considering that, according to Yahoo finance:

  1. HNZ has a honest 16 P/E ratio.
  2. HNZ is supposed to grow its earnings. Next year P/E is supposed to go to 14. (more…)
