Shared strategies
« on: October 29, 2017, 06:56:45 PM »
I really like International with the idea that Europe and many other counties are trailing the US with low rates, i.e. the US will raise rates 1st, and possibly be the 1st to correct.  A while back I heard Warren Buffett say, low interest rates are the best predictor of companies earnings… something like that.  So at some point the raising rates (US before the rest of the world) will effect profits and then we will have high valuations and lower earnings... which is not good.

You're trying to market time in general we don't do this around here we pick asset allocation and stick to them.

If beating the market was really possible consistently you'd see the actively managed funds with alot more money in them and beating the index funds. But you don't see that bc people who do it full time for a loving can't beat it. People even bet against Buffett and lose. In the end maybe you come out ahead but you'd be the exception not the norm.
