THE TRUTH ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET!!!

The stock market today is a speculative crap shoot where the whole market can decrease in value as much as 50% in a few days or weeks as during a crash and the extreme volatility in individual stocks is an indication that their price is being manipulated by big money and fast computers and not small investors. In effect, price movement is no longer based on fundamentals or evaluation of tangible assets.

New technology stocks are where much of the speculation is occurring and if it is a company with a truly innovative product or service then it can experience incredible short term growth. However, long duration growth is soon stopped by big technology firms which buy them up and incorporate them into their companies to eliminate competition or to give them a future technological competitive advantage.

Investing in an upstart IPO and holding on to it for the long duration is no longer a realistic goal for an investor hoping for million dollar gains twenty or thirty years from the start of an IPO.

Finally, the stock market is a short duration speculative investment which can tank at any moment all determined by whether the big money invests in it or withdraws its financial support to suddenly invest elsewhere. The stock market has become a short duration gambling enterprise and not a serious long duration investment.

If you want guaranteed retirement money security for old age then don’t invest in the stock market for the long duration. Stick with real estate, diversified municipal bonds, or a precious or rare commodity such as platinum and gold when it is not being sold at inflated prices because big money also manipulates commodity prices and makes them go up or down at will. The real value of a metal commodity is the price it takes to mine and refine it so if the commodity price is three or four times its production price then don’t buy it at this inflated value.

You probably won’t become a millionaire but you will maintain the value of your hard earned dollars until retirement when you can spend some of it without finding out that inflation has reduced your savings in a bank to a pittance over a forty year period.

 CONCLUSION:

If you want money security in your retirement years, don’t invest in the stock market for the long duration. If you want to gamble with your hard earned money and probably lose most of it then play and get burned in the stock market!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT REAL ESTATE+

Real-Estate-Market-Money-300x199

Real Estate: n. a subset(s) of land which includes the air above it and the ground below it and a relatively permanent subset(s) on it

In general real estate is the safest long duration tangible investment which you can make. It usually keeps pace with inflation and rises in value accordingly.

Yes, you can lose money in real estate by investing in run down neighborhoods, in outdated buildings, overpaying for swampland or non buildable areas, paying too high an interest rate on a home, mortgaging your properties to the hilt, renting residential homes during a financial crisis, and can lose money investing during a real estate bubble of inflated prices but in general real estate is a relatively safe long duration investment.

The major drawback of real estate is taxes. If you are not renting the property then you may actually lose money on a yearly basis. Renting can also be difficult with tenant problems even in good neighborhoods so if a real estate management firm can’t do it for a reasonable cost then even real estate investment, other than for your private home, may not be the smartest thing to do.

My advice having a lifetime of real estate experience  is buy the real estate for cash by saving it first and weather financial crises by mortgaging the property to some extent. When the crisis is over then pay off the mortgage as soon as possible.

The most important real estate is wilderness and the plants and animals which live there. It should not be considered to be an exploitable asset but a safety net to be used when the domestic food supply is no longer safe for human consumption due to excessive use of toxic chemicals, monoculture agriculture, and factory farming of domestic animals.

Planet earth and it’s real estate is all that humanity really has to depend on for its survival so living on it in the most sustainable way possible should be the long range goal of a healthy, truly wealthy, and happy present and future human society.
