NEITHER TRUMP NOR OBAMA DESERVE THE PRIMARY CREDIT FOR THE CURRENT “BOOM”

Chris Temple 0

Among the ever more entertaining (and ever more disingenuous and childish) political discourse of recent days has been the public pissing contest between The Donald and his predecessor in the White House over who deserves the credit for the current boffo state of the U.S. economy and markets. In this excerpt…

COMPANY PROFILE — IMAGIN MEDICAL (CSE-IME; OTC-IMEXF)

Chris Temple 0

As I have discussed on my recent podcasts as well as in some recent e-mails and commentaries, my view that the overall stock market is nearing a peak does not mean that there are not compelling individual stories out there for investors. Indeed, with the market's behavior of late still…

Fed Chairman Powell’s seeming bent to “break something”

Chris Temple 0

(From, in part, the July 16 Issue of The National Investor) -- In this week's new issue I explained the reasons why--given inflation percolating some and despite the flattening yield curve--we would likely hear from Fed Chairman Powell during his Congressional dog-and-pony show that the Fed's "normalization" program--what I have…

Only Agnostics–and smart stock-pickers–can succeed in this market!

Chris Temple 0

This week -- for our own audience's purposes, and as I filled in for my friend Cory as host of some segments on the K.E. Report -- I spoke with my friend "Doc" Postma, a regular on K.E.R.  What I like about Doc is that he, as I, is not…

My Discussion with Mike “Mish” Shedlock on all things Fed

Chris Temple 0

(Posted Sunday, April 22) -- This weekend I catch up with popular blogger and Investment Advisor Rep Mike Shedlock to discuss his own outlook (generally similar to mine) on the Fed.  By and large, neither of us believe that the Fed will have quite the room it thinks to "normalize"…

Chris Temple 0

April 16, 2018 -- How do we navigate these Uninvestable Markets  ? As we start a new week, I go into some discussions of the broad markets.  Most major asset classes, quite frankly, are in limbo. As a few other pundits have characterized things of late, the stock market especially…

Understanding our M.A.D. Policy with China

Chris Temple 0

  A few semi-hysterical folks in the media (especially those who detest the U.S. president) warn that Trump is starting a full-fledged trade war that will crater the global economy. If that doesn't do it -- say some of the usual Doom and Gloom promoters--China's retaliation by "dumping" dollars and…

Gold Manipulation – A History Lesson (From the Feb. 20, 2018 Issue)

Chris Temple 0

From time to time I clarify my own position--and provide some common sense and history--to address a well-flogged story line (actually a MYTH today) that the gold price is "suppressed." In the below excerpt from the latest issue of The National Investor I remind folks that--a scant 20 years or…

Now THIS was “Gold Suppression!”

Chris Temple 0

I regularly call out the carnival barker types among the "Pied Pipers of the Gold Bug Echo Chamber" for putting out utter nonsense at times as they frantically fight over a shrinking audience of well-meaning but impressionable investors who appreciate gold's historical role. One of the dopier story lines for…

Profit-taking of the past tumultuous week…and what’s next

Chris Temple 0

(From our e-mail of Feb. 10, 2018) -- Before he could even find the chairman's rest room at the Eccles Building, new Fed Chairman Jerome Powell was faced with his "baptismal" market upheaval. In a fairly broad recap of the antics in the markets of the last week or so,…

As this overdue Correction unfolds. . .

Chris Temple 0

(Posted Monday, Feb. 5, 2018) -- As I also pointed out in a couple of last week's podcasts discussing these and other issues similarly, the now-unfolding correction for stocks is not automatically a harbinger of doom or the end of stocks' secular move of the last several years. In today's…

About that Clinton / Uranium One scandal. . .

Chris Temple 0

I for one find it MOST gratifying that the Hildabeast has recently been hoist on her very own "The Russians Are Coming!" petard. But that said, much of what you have heard about that Uranium One scandal involving the Clintons is an exaggeration. Still, a silver lining could be emerging;…
