Strategic Intelligence September Portfolio Update

Despite the widespread belief that easy Fed policies and high stock prices have made everything better, we are still in a very risky environment for many financial assets. The Fed has shown that it can quickly flood financial markets with liquidity. But it can’t create jobs or recapitalize overly indebted businesses. We expect to see high market volatility heading into November elections, and probably well beyond election day. Dan gives a review of all the open positions currently in our portfolio, including some previous buys moved to holds.

Strategic Intelligence August Portfolio Update

It makes sense to buy stocks that have risen far ahead of fundamentals because stocks will just keep rising in terms of the increasingly questionable U.S. dollar. However, we think precious metals are a far superior hedge against a dollar collapse. If stocks that are total garbage from a fundamental standpoint can launch into near-vertical rallies, then we’re in an environment when you want to maintain a core position in precious metals while taking some tactical profits along the way. That’s what we have been doing with our portfolio. For now, read on as Dan gives guidance on all our open positions.
