Ready To Put Your Money To Work?

1. After six years of the Obama Administration, no one came to “take their guns away”, despite several high-profile shooting incidents. The economy lost 17,000 jobs, marking the first contraction of the labor market in more than four years. A recent CNN story reports that gun sales have dropped by more than a third in January. Well demand is saturated, and as the CNN article notes, supply has caught up with demand. 2011 was an exceptional year because of all the disruptions of the oil production in Libya and the sudden extra demand from Japan because of their horrible tsunami earthquake. 4. Weapons producers (and ammunition manufacturers) have been cranking up production to meet demand (just as gold producers have) and have saturated the market with weapons of all sorts. So what does this portend for the future of weapons sales? I had thought about investing in a weapons manufacturer stock – or perhaps an ammunition manufacturer stock.

Going in literal terms, a stock market is a place for the trading of derivatives and company stocks, listed on stock exchange. Employees of Enron put all their 401(k) into company stock. You see, money saved in mutual fund accounts, or in stock trading accounts, is not guaranteed, or insured by the FDIC. So the Buds of the world lose interest, over time, and eventually, Bud decides to sell his handgun on Craigslist, as he needs the money. And if you were “in the know” at the time, maybe you got out. Curiously enough, I know of people who don’t pay off their credit card balance in full, but at the same time, put their money in low yield investments. 500,000, which is another reason not to put “all your eggs in one basket”. Once you have four or five assault rifles and handguns, do you really need another one?

Our breathing is the connection between our body and mind and they both need oxygen in order to function well. 2. Everyone who wanted a gun – or multiple guns – bought all they could afford, and don’t need anymore. Bud buys a handgun, as his paranoid friend Ted tells him “Obama is going to take away all our guns!”. Just the research involved trying to pick them can take quite awhile. You can lose it all – every damn penny of it – if the market goes down or if the trading house turns out to be fraudulently operated. Timing the market is very difficult, without a time machine. Some time back there have been some debate on other blogs about whether value investing works better, or technical trading works better or turtle style works better or whatever. 6.95 trades sounds attractive, but free trades at Merrill Edge sounds even better.

It turns out that anyone can manufacture a gun, with the right machine tools. Extreme savers may want to make drastic cutbacks in their budgets so they can contribute as much as possible. Major repairs like plumbing fixtures and electrical circuits all include heavy expenses, thus you can’t make very high profits with these. Big companies have a lot of overhead, insurance and marketing costs, employee costs, etc., so it is hard for them to compete when it comes to minor repairs. The third benefit is you can carry out sensitivity analysis to find out which parameter affects the insurance needs the most. If you don’t want to work out with anyone else or you prefer to do it alone, you can start shopping around for some non-expensive fitness equipment such as the Iron Gym. However, sometime after the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in 2009, I came to realise that while value investing worked, it did not work all the time. In fact, according to a new study conducted by Choice Home Warranty, 30 percent of millennials plan to buy a house in 5 years’ time.
