A lot of investors are some of the stupidest people I have ever seen.......someone says something or some inmaterial happens overseas and the market drops and they start a "sell-off" cause so called "everyone else is doing it". Others who invested in a good company that makes "widigits" and is doing well......their stocks prices go down for NO reasonable reason and that company has NOTHING to do whats going on in the other side of the world. Now its takes weeks to get their stock price back up to where it was or scares off potential investors for these "stupid actions" of others. Someone needs to teach these people "common sense" as most of those idiots out there were behind the door when it was passed out. Does anybody else agree with me.......whats your opinion??
Rentals works for me. Made a lot of money in property and now I'm able to do it again.
Just don't think you get to sit back and watch money roll in. It is still a job.
Why are you telling us this? Like we need to know about something more risky than T-bills, which thanks to the Fed are also now too risky for most investor's appetite .
By the way, selling covered call options and most other hedging strategies using options are inherently less risky than owning naked positions in the underlying stock, security, or asset.
I cringe whenever Thom Hartman advertises gold on His program. God has an intrinsic value as jewelry, an excellent electrical conductor etc. Otherwise, it's just another commodity which goes up and down, usually opposite the stock market, but up and down none the less. I know He knows that.
Just remember: The lesson to take from all this is that there's a fool born every minute and two sharpies to take him to the cleaners.
Whatever happened to buying a stock, the proceeds of which went to investing in the company to expand or modernize. Now, while that may happen initially, most of the money is just massaged into some smart fellas' (not that there's anything wrong with that--being smart, that is) bank account for application to his corporate jet.
Investing is just the technical side of economics. Kind of like building airplanes is just the technical side of the science that makes it possible and economics is NOT settled science.
It's long been known that science sometimes comes from superstition. From alchemy came chemistry, from astrology came astronomy. One has to wonder what might come from economics.--Bernard Lewis
