As I Have Repeatedly Said This Tariff ‘War’ With China Was BOGUS From Start — Just A Donald Trump ‘Wet’ Farce.

by Anura Guruge


All I can say is:

QED —
Yet again (maybe for the 3rd time).

{look it up. It will do you good.}

Just type ‘tariffs’ into this blog’s search ‘trench’.


Today’s BIG headline — from CNBC.
Google for more. Plenty of coverage.


I have from the start CLAIMED very publicly, on this blog that these are empty threats.

Push comes to shove, Donald Trump will back down. He has done so consistently.

It is embarrassing. It is a farce. When will people come to see it — like I do. Do not get excited. It will never happen. SMILE.

It is TOO, too easy. He is just an obese cry-baby. That folks believe his tripe and even worse that it affects the stock market just confounds I. How can people be so …. there, alas, is but one word, viz., ‘stupid’.

He has yet to full me once.

Yes, I knew he would become president. Told people that in February 2016. I wasn’t fooled by the polls either, and I am not fooled by them now.

I can read him like a cartoon.

But, I also know that he will WIN a second-term.

He will not be impeached.

Yes, I know all of this. It is not easy being I.

But, I also know how to use all of this to help me with my investing. SMILE. So, there are compensations. SMILE.

Donald Trump’s Threat To Delist Chinese Stock Is Another EMPTY Threat — Just Meaningless Braggadocio.

As with all the threats about tariffs, this Summer, that so roiled the stock market, this is Donald Trump being who he is; pandering to his base and trying to distract folks from the looming impeachment.

It is true that 90% of Trump’s base will have no bloody idea what this is all about. Delisting stock? Nearly all of them have never owned stock.

But, the stock market reacted — yet again — on Friday. Makes me laugh.

Yes, I own Chinese stock — Alibaba and JD.com. But, I am not worried at all, at all. Actually I would like Trump to try and delist those two stocks — the most popular of the Chinese stock. I can actually make money on that. SMILE. When you know what you are doing you can make money on stock in either direction — as long as you have a conviction as to which way it is going.

This is a BLUFF.

This is Trump crying ‘wolf’.

This will never happen.

Pigs will fly before this will ever come to pass.

If I am wrong I will eat a pig. Promise.

Am I The ONLY ONE That Has Worked Out That Donald Trump Will ALWAYS Delay Enforcing Tariffs?

Well, lets face it. You can, if you squint hard enough and put on rose-colored specs, see that Donald Trump and I are twins separated at birth.

No wonder I can understand him and predict what he is going to do. We are so, so very alike — he is just better looking and is rich.

Let me tell you. Donald is NOT serious about tariffs. He is just using it as a cudgel. Don’t get excited about it. Play the market assuming that the tariffs will ALWAYS be kicked down the road.

Trust me.

IF you don’t, go back and look.

He has always, push come to shove, delayed tariffs at the 10th hour. The GOOD, KIND, GENEROUS man he is, he does NOT wait until the 11th hour. He does it earlier. Bless his BIG heart.

So, now you know.

Trump is not serious about tariffs.

EXACTLY As I Predicted Trump Backs Down On Key China Tariffs. I Can’t STOP Smiling.

It really is like stealing candy from a baby!

I live off the stock market and have done for the last 12-years.

So, it helps if you can anticipate what is going to happen and in my DOTAGE I have, to my own amusement, have got good at this. Yes, it PAYS. SMILE. Thanks.

Old age and experience really does help.

Just 15 or 16 years ago I would listen to the investing advice of old men and wish I could be so sanguine and sage.

NOW I am one of those old men, and I am loving it.

While others panic and sell, I rebalance and wait for the bounce. I actually rebalanced yesterday because I knew the bounce was imminent. What can I say.

Yes, I can give you advice on investing. SMILE.

Why Does The Stock Market React To Trump’s Tariff Threats — He ALWAYS Backs Down!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and savor. From ‘marketwatch.com’.


Just don’t get it. The stock market did it AGAIN today. Reacted BADLY when Trump threatened China with more tariffs.

But, am I the ONLY one who has noticed. He always, but always, backs down at the last minute and kicks the can down the road.

Has done it with Canada, with Mexico, with the EU and with China.

He is all bluster and no trousers.

Just can’t understand why the market reacts. It should just ignore the threats. He has cried wolf way too many times. He is just bluffing.

Just Because The Dow Was Down 6% In 2018 Does Not Mean All Investors Lost Money. No Sire.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From the Jan. 1, 2019 marketwatch.com.


No, my stock investments did NOT lose money in 2018. They actually appreciated, as they should. I have not lost money on the stock market in quite a few years. {Smile}.

No, it wasn’t luck. Much of it was patience, prudence and sanguinity. When I was younger I used to panic and start selling when the market went down. Well, after nearly 30-years I finally learnt. And towards the end I was inspired by two elderly gentleman, both close to 80, who had done very well as investors. I learnt from them. They were long term investors. Buying and holding ‘solid’ stock for years without constantly trading and chasing the latest fad/trend.

Their wisdom finally dawned on after I turned 55. I started thinking long-term and strategically.

That I stayed FULLY invested during the financial carnage of 2008 — 2012 helped. Proved to me that I can weather the worst downturns and still survive. Of course, those of us who suffered during those 4-years came out of it stronger and then started reaping rapid gains soon after. That was a nice boost.

I do a lot of options BUT I don’t churn stock. I buy and hold for years and I have bought well. {Smile}

Yes, sometimes I do think I should share with others my investing insights. But, I am not licensed etc. So, alas, I have to keep much of my strategy to myself.

But, please, going forward THINK — ‘be patient’, ‘be sanguine’, ‘try not to panic’, ‘think long’, ‘buy-and-hold’.

Happy New Year. Good investing. 2019 will be a better year I hope — for YOUR sake.
