As we enter the fourth quarter, I have a few short, sweet and rational things to let you know. Few quarters have been as frustrating as our last. Investors and Advisors have been through alot and we are all tired of it. But, it was just a bad quarter – nothing more. It provided many opportunities for the acquistion of equities at fair valuations. We are ready for what comes next.
Keep in mind:
1) September and 3rd Quarter statements are enroute. Don’t be surprised and don’t over react. If you owned stocks in this period, you may have to remind yourself why.
Rational investors and advisors put up with market volatility for dividends when rates are low, for diversification when credit markets are troubled, and for capital appreciation opportunities.
Keep in mind:
2) In August, America’s inflation increased to an annualized rate of 3.8%, the highest level since September 2008. Stock ownership is an inflation hedge. Our current-account deficit improved/narrowed by $4.5 billion in the 2nd Quarter of 2011. (Source: The Economist 9/30/11)
Good news does exist.
If you need to hear some, I’m here.
Until next week,
