Recency Bias: How Investors Are Going To Get Screwed – Again!

While indulging in a most delicious barbecued steak washed down by a lovely South African red a couple weeks ago a friend was telling me about a recent seminar he attended. As a senior executive at a Swiss private bank he regularly attends these things. The topic. “How to invest in a volatile market.” The suggestion: Buy USD, CHF and JPY. The kid (he was in his 20’s) who was delivering this presentation to a room full of bankers proved

Starvation in the Yukon – Gold Mining in The North

Kudos to the tour organizers, who did an excellent job. The trip was an awesome experience, not only because of the range of projects I was able to see, the new leaders I met, and the truly stunning

Hong Kong, We Will Miss You

The Hong Kong of today won’t be the Hong Kong of tomorrow. Now, I know what some of you are going to say. That Hong Kongers are just money grubbing, fast moving, fast eating, efficiently evolved economic animals. There is a nugget of truth in that. It’s what happens when freedoms are granted to folks.

Pot Stock ETF’s Are Making History Repeat Itself

I’ve been thinking that at some point in the future I want to buy the snot out of pot stocks. Did I say in the future? Let me explain by taking you back to the 2000’s. Remember the mid 2000’s? Nokia was still “the bomb”, wearing bandanas was cool, and alternative energy was “en fuego”. Solar, wind, you name it. 2008 was the peak. It was also when the solar ETF (TAN) was launched. Remember, investment bankers sell product, and
