Call us. We’ll reintroduce you to safety. – Ray Mullaney
An Honest Explanation of Investment Risks
The charts below will help you understand just how risky the market is. Before we get to the charts, I’ll share some thoughts from 42 years of investment experience. Because the market will rise and fall, a common-sense view of investing would conclude it is best to sell after the market rises and buy after it falls. In general, this is our focus. However, more precisely, we employ financial technology to measure investment risks. Our technology informs us of what stocks and at what prices can be purchased with greater safety and opportunity, and quantitatively and objectively distinguishes those from stocks where there is greater danger and minimal opportunity because their prices are so expensive. We are patient. To keep you safe, we follow our technology, not the crowds, and employ a good dose of common sense as well. We will wait and invest your capital when prices provide greater opportunity and less risk.
We will miss some of the potential profit that the speculative wave of rising prices offers. See chart from 1990 – 2000. However, the losses you may sustain from entering the market at the wrong time may be unbearable! See charts from 1966 – 1982; 2000 – 2009; and Oct 2007 – Oct 2012.
Most investment advisors will tell you to buy and hold; that is good for them but not for you. Our proprietary financial technology informs us of what stocks to buy and at what prices. This discipline helps us avoid overpaying for stocks. Our technology is rational, not emotional. When others are selling in fear, our data analysis informs us when it is truly safe to invest and put aside fears. This technology also reliably measures risk, which greatly helps us avoid overpaying for stocks just because everybody else is excited about them.
We caution you; for that portion of your assets that you just cannot stand to lose, Sell Today.
