Technically Speaking: If Everyone Sees It, Is It Still A Bubble?

“If everyone sees it, is it still a bubble?” That was a great question I got over the weekend. As a “contrarian” investor, it is usually when “everyone” is talking about an event; it doesn’t happen. As Mark Hulbert noted recently, “everyone” is worrying about a...

Market crashes and economic recessions are inevitable.   They are a way of life.  Instead of being fearful, investors should embrace them as opportunities to enhance their financial status.  This is accomplished by having the bulk of their liquidity available after a severe correction or market crash.  Diversification, including mutual funds and ETFs, do not protect against crashes.  Neither does gold.   See Crash Protection.

Our founder, Michael Markowski, has witnessed and participated in many crashes throughout his 41 years in the capital markets.   Most importantly, he has researched crashes and the other market anomalies to develop algorithms and strategies enabling investors to capitalize on the opportunities in what many others would see only as a problem.   Below are Markowski’s key discoveries that led to the development of the algorithms:

  • Michael analyzed a report about the shares of 250 companies multiplying by a median 19 times from 1974 through 1983, a period that was made even more remarkable because the Dow Jones had increased by only 50%. After discovering the common denominator, he utilized it to underwrite IPOs for venture stage companies.  See the chart and read original research report on startup that he financed which has since grown to $800 million in revenue.
  • Enron declared bankruptcy in December of 2001, after its share price had hit a record high earlier in the year. By conducting an autopsy on Enron’s financials, Markowski was enabled to successfully predict the demises and bankruptcies of numerous public companies, including Lehman Brothers in September 2007, which had Wall Street “buy” recommendations.  See Perfect Short Research.
  • Bank of Japan (BoJ) instituted negative interest rate policy in January of 2016. By researching      prior crashes, including 2008, this insight enabled him to develop NIRP Crash Indicator which accurately predicted the Brexit crash.  See NIRP Crash Indicator.

The 16 minute video below illuminates Mr. Markowski’s discoveries that led him to create the three predictive algorithms.  For Mr. Markowski’s press highlights click here.
