10 big worries about this market

The rally that started the year has stalled a bit, but optimism is still running way too hot. I think it's time to take profits, but here's what to watch if you dare to play on.

This article reminds me of an irksome fault of many MSN.com articles: having multiple parts reached sequentially through clicking to advance thru pages.  Sometimes I like to download articles and return to them after appropriate time to see how well the author has done in his/her predictions or analysis.  Then I focus on those who provide the best assessments.

I can't do this with this or other such articles.

Welp, the traitor democrats continue to try to ignore the Constitution, by today introducing a bill in Missouri to confiscate and ban all guns.   Of course Americans will ignore such laws, regulations and executive orders as they violate the Constitution, the supreme law of the land.

And all this while Obama goes on his second 10 day vacation this year...  No President has been as lazy as Obama in the history of the Republic...

All these problems have been around for centuries!! We know how to handle them. The markets went past a alltime high twice  but that has been since 2007. All other gains have only been to recover losses. Its about time the markets finally make a move upward after all these years.

Anthony's plan is to keep saying the market is going to crash every week until it crashes. Then my guess is he'll go around touting the one article he wrote that "perfectly timed" the crash and he'll try to get us to sign up for his newsletter. This guy is a total tool.

The problem we have in investing is not the market going down, but what to invest in when it does.  


I am sure there are some precious metal stocks to purchase, (I have some IAU, miners).


Having cash isn't too bad except for the devaluing it faces without any growith potential.  It just sits idle. 


To be in dividend stocks is alright because they do give out cash, but dividends can be cut off at the board level and dividend stocks can go down to half price or better.   Remember we bought some in 2009 that have more than doubled since like ARCC and MCD.


Oil or gas, got some of those, but if no one is working there is not as much corporate income so dividends may drop and they can go down fast in price.  I have or had a couple of those that have doubled or better since 2009, namely KMP and WES.


So to be forewarned is alright, but what do you do with the money if you cash out?  


Do you just try to keep as much as you can in stocks that you know will recover quicker after knowing they will go down?


All questions that this economy brings up which are not easy to answer.

I get tired of hearing these ridiculous arguments about inflation. The best way to protect yourselves against cheaper dollars is to invest in things of value which keep up with or ahead of inflation. You could buy Gold, but it would be a risky way to do it. You might also consider exactly what its future value might be?

Some of you are really idiots. Where should I keep my millions in? Perhaps put it under my bed? Gold bars? I have several in the basement vault. 

I'm selling assets now not to get out of them but  because I expect to buy them back cheaper.

My stocks represent value due to what they are invested in - American Capitalism. What is so great about that? It is because capitalist make the products and provide the services present and future that Americans want or will want. What value the dollar might have doesn't matter. Those goods and services cost whatever is necessary to make plus a profit.

My investments have grown in value over the years and ahead of inflation. If they didn't, they would no longer be in business.

Of course, you don't have to buy stocks. You could buy other things like real estate. Maybe you should buy some of Obama's speeches if you are into comedy!

Har har har!

The natural instinct is to throw in the towel---Yal it IS NOT THE TIME TO QUIT. 

We need to unify, not like Tea Partiers, we can't gut the system in one cut.  There needs to be some respect for commonsense.  Yet, that is the very problem, each group (left & Right politicians) have their brand of commonsense.  Neither are close to the will of the people; the people who are their constituents.  The very constiutents that buy the "schmill" from THEIR Congressman, THEIR Senator; so, we the people re-elect at a rate of 85% of all incumbents.  Until WE THE PEOPLE (I guess) decide that sending back the same old Politiker---we will continue to get the SAME OLE Result!!

I challenge each of us, do one political thing each day at a minimum weekly; send a facebook to encourage others, send a message to Washington; email, tweet;call; tell them to act --Enough of your self serving agenda, Do what is right of Americans!!

God Bless America, God Bless mine and your Children and Grandchildren, God Bless my Faith God Bless us all to hold strong in these troubled times!

Stock Market = Politically favored bankers inflation protection as provided through QE and sequels.


Karma = Baby Boomers taking full advantage of Dow 14000 to fund retirement while bankers try to figure out how to get off their inflated position by selling to sucker investors.


Investors = Watching the funny drama and waiting for the inevitable correction.

If, after a month?  2 months?  If, after some short amount of time, the economy doesn't falter and the stock market doesn't un-ravel, as Anthony insists it is going to do, then should Anthony not be seen as an eternal pessemist and no longer allowed a free column on MSN to spout his "worry" to all?
Feb 14, 2013 1:11PM
The author seems to believe he is prescient in recommending caution i.e "Out of desperation, central bankers are using currency manipulation to bolster stocks..."  Knowlegable investors pulled out of the market when it becamse obvious (in 2007) that both money committees in (both House and Senate)  under bwany fwank and chris dodd were hell bent on destroying Bush's excellent economy.  The recent slamming of fake money into the market is merely to FORCE it several dollars above Bush's 14,000 market in 2006.  Suckas!

deleveraging is  painful. we are in age of deleveraging.  age of sluggish growth with many micro recessions.

"I think it's time to take profits,"

Really Anthony?  For the last month you have been saying the market is about to crash and we have made good money for those of us who stayed in the market.  This entire year will be good for the stock market.  
Feb 14, 2013 11:17AM
A collection of half truths and old news. I have come to view it favorably when Anthony is bearish. He has been wrong for the past two months, at least.
Feb 14, 2013 10:48AM
This fear mongering serves no one.  Maybe he gets lucky and calls one right out of ten, but you will lose more often then you win following his advice.  Find someone/plan with a good track record and plan and then stick to it
Feb 14, 2013 10:45AM
What surprises me is Gov't people who are in control of budget matters ignore the falling wallpaper in the room.  Anthony is right, but inflation is the largest enemy, when it starts stopping it will be difficult.  Ben and the folks in charge will loose more hair and the real party is on.  I see it becoming a battle between nations finding out who can print money faster. 
Feb 14, 2013 10:01AM
Yep, Yep, i will continue my strategy since 2008, gold, silver, duke energy stock, kinder morgan stock, cheveron stock, and collectibles i.e. art, gem stones, coins, stamps etc. My logic, one, hard assets such as gold, silver and collectibles will continue to go up as the dollar goes down and the dollar will go down because all countries are depressing their currencies to cheapen their goods and because of human nature. Two, energy and utility company stocks will not lose 50-60% value like other stocks because people can not live without energy and electric and must pay their utilities bill and both pay good dividends.

It's pretty obvious from his track record that Mirhadari has lost all credibilty as a financial writer. His only support comes from those who perpetually spew their usual dismay , pessimism and bigotry towards any kind of financial improvement. These are the shorts in mind and thought as well as in strategy - habitual Losers who see imaginary conspiracies in every facet of economic development which has denied them from gaining any benefit .If you are a long term serious investor the numbers are in your favor.

Notice all the morons here who are anti-Anthony who is just reporting the political-economic-financial landscape as he sees it? In fact, I doubt intelligent people would disagree with his depiction of our world. 

Now we know most of these jerks are idiot's morons, so if you're a contrary sort, you should ignore anything they have to say. Especially stupid is this space alien VL. I sure wish he'd go back to his home planet.

I'm rich, handsome, and enjoy the best. You all on the other hand dine at the Salvation Army!

Har har har!

Does anyone realize that Mitch McConnell- Republican, Party of NO pledger and all-around useless unethical politician... has a 16% approval rating and 80% of Kentucky voters say they will vote for ANYONE other than Mitch or protest for a none-of-the-above option if he is the sole choice? I understand that nearly every Red State is like this now. We just had the elections and our circumstances are extremely dire. To have "pledgers" at all is accepting terrorism as a political or ethical option. It is not. Don't wait for the next election. Simply write on a piece of paper: "I am a registered voter in the State of (enter state name here, spell it correctly) and I hereby authorize the United States of America to remove my sitting member from Congress." Date it, sign it and print your name below it and mail it to the White House. To have PLEDGED to do the bidding of anyone other than YOU or ME is terrorism. We are Americans, not sheep... get the pledgers gone, elect ethical people to replace them and let's get going on a cooperative solution to our mounting troubles. Let's move forward again, America!

[BRIEFING.COM] The Nasdaq Composite (+0.5%) and S&P 500 (+0.2%) posted modest gains on Thursday, but not before enduring a morning dip into the red, which took place in reaction to reports indicating Russia has commenced military exercises on the Ukrainian border.

The news from Europe knocked the key indices from their early highs, while giving a boost to safe-haven assets like gold futures (+0.5% to $1290.80/ozt), Treasuries (10-yr yield -1 bps to 2.69%), and the Japanese yen (102.30 ... More
