Inexperiencing the Stock Market


I get calls every day from people around the world asking me my views on stocks and the stock market in general.


Most likely because of the money I raised in the past, and the people I helped build companies using stock and the markets as efficient tools.

In any event, the leading questions are around why there is such volatility in the stock market.

I believe the answer is, in part, inexperience.

There are more people in the market under 35 than any other period in history. By perception (fair or not), this generation expects instant gratification, in and with, every thing. There is no sustained understanding of value – and common sense for that matter. This is also the generation that, at 57%, believes the internet is the ultimate source of information. So, they are particularly susceptible to rumors and misleading information.

As a result, they react to market stimuli that does not drive rational buying and selling behavior. A good example might be dropping Apple on Mortgage news. Thus, the average investor in the American stock market, at 35 or younger, has become an impatient “day trader”.

This creates an extremely volatile stock market that defies market logic and traditional trading strategies.

This is me calling it as I see it.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
