Quote of the Day

"If you spend your life trying to be good at everything, you will never be great at anything." - Tom Rath

Remember Real Estate?

by Jon S. Strebler 


We concentrate on stocks, fixed income, and precious metals for our analysis and recommendations, but we know there are other attractive investment options out there.  Chief among those are real estate, which for many people means primarily their personal residence.  In the late-1970s, after years of sloppy stock market performance, and a heating up of inflation, real estate equity was the preferred investment for the majority of Americans.



Dollar Breakout Threatens Rally

By Matthew Kerkhoff


The story of 2018 has been one of U.S. growth, but not necessarily global growth. While most major economies around the world are still expanding, they have been decelerating or holding steady, whereas the U.S. economy has been picking up steam.


And as is typically the case, a stronger relative outlook for the U.S. has led investors to bid up the dollar, which is causing a reshuffling of the cards. Currencies always have a way of sharing and redistributing growth around the globe, and this time is no different.



Richard’s Thoughts on Whether Dow Theory is Outmoded

Richard’s Comments


What's this? A site which calls itself "Financial Sense University" offers a "Requiem for the Dow Theory" by John Tyler and another "expose" entitled just "Dow Theory" by Sol Palha. Both articles present the thesis that the Dow Theory is outmoded and that modern changes have rendered the Theory useless.


I've been dealing with these sensational disclosures ever since I started writing Dow Theory Letters almost half a century ago.



What On Earth is China Attempting to Do?

By Chuck Butler


Welcome to this week's edition of Thoughts From The Butler Patio...


The Patio has moved for the second week of my annual Summer vacation to S. Florida, where we hosted all the kids, and the grandkids this past week. It's now down to just me and my wife, and she'll be back home by the time you read this. But not me... I'm staying to supervise some work that's being done on a condo unit we just bought. So, once again, I'll be All By Myself... But no worries!
