This book provides a great overview of the mindset of investing and exactly how success may be accomplished utilizing a contrarian (value-oriented) strategy. It is split into five parts: – Part I talk about bubbles, panics, and other stock market manias, drawing attention to their common characteristics and showing that they don’t change much as time passes.
The author talks about how buyer behavior in such situations can be partly explained by emotional findings about how exactly affect (emotion) and cognitive biases impact decision making. Part II focuses on the “new dark age range” of trading giving some background related to the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). The writer uses examples of market crashes to task EMH assumptions about liquidity, leverage, and volatility. The main conclusion is that the EMH doesn’t have much support when it’s scrutinized closely and put on reality.
Part III examines the difficulties and flaws of market forecasting, demonstrating that experts and experts are bad at estimating future company income and stock returns. There can be an interesting quantitative and psychological analysis of how positive and negative earnings “surprises” are related to subsequent stock returns.

Interestingly, Day of the month I had been sitting on an increase before last, when there was a sizable drop that forced my profile down. The decrease was credited to a moderate sell-off in defensive shares (e.g., consumer staples and healthcare) during May, that are weighted heavily in my portfolio.
Seeking Alpha: This month I did so not submit any new articles on the trading website Seeking Alpha. 200 in dividends, which will be nice. For June My savings rate is difficult to estimate, of the month given my big move at the end. I will be incurring some moving expenses at that right time, although I will be reimbursed for a portion of them later. In preparation for my move I have already been sifting through stuff to know what I no longer need and can either sell or donate. Edit: I forgot that UTX usually raises its dividend every five quarters, therefore the next announcement might come in September. Thanks to an anonymous commentator for bringing this to my attention.

On top of that, New Century has warehouse loans and other liabilities. Chances are that getting away from those liabilities was impossible and/or very expensive. In addition, that they had payroll. If they pared lending back, they’d find yourself laying off many staff. But that could have meant that whenever things switched around, they wouldn’t have the staff in place to take advantage of the turnaround. Its no unique of mutual account managers who kept buying tech shares in the past due 1990’s, while admitting they thought the stocks were overvalued. Or, I suspect, relationship managers buying high-yield today.
Its very very hard for managers to walk away from their core business, no matter what their outlook. I’ve been extremely active this week and haven’t got much time to devote to the blog. To all or any of those that have made comments, there will be replies sometime this weekend if at all possible.
We’ve reinvented, as the 2-12 months is 3bps higher on the week, while the 10-calendar year is 5bps lower. This is an interesting move, because its signaling that the Fed either won’t cut or will hike rates, but this will eventually cause short-term rates to fall even more. Its kind of a wager on the 1999-2000 cycle repeating itself.
