Review"This book is like Mal - who is a rider, a rocker and a rebel. He doesn't just think outside the box - he drags it behind his Harley on a cross-continent adventure and then runs over it a few times for good measure. The Bay and Wall Street guys are gonna hate it - Main Streeters should embrace it. One ton of fun!" BJ Del Conte Chase Producer, BNN - Business News Network Business Producer/Anchor - CP24

The Day After – Catalyst for resumption of Bull Market will be a surprise!
I provided a rather winded explanation in my previous discussion about why the current correction was inevitable. Since then, the S&P 500 has declined roughly 3%. It is likely to get worse before it gets better? My own estimation was … Continue reading

China will be the next big surprise!
China was all the rage for a short while, but despite chugging along at a premium growth rate to the rest of the world, investors have pretty much focussed on other markets – the U.S. of course but Japan as well of … Continue reading

Why Europe needs America!
Being in a country like Canada, and being in the investment management business a very long time helps one have a broader perspective. In my experience (thirty years) global economic cycles tend to follow a pattern out of slumps: US … Continue reading

Don’t Panic! It’s just 2010 all over again!
Over many years I’ve often been asked to meet with groups (accounting associations or investment advisors with auditoriums full of their clients) in order to help calm them during periods of malaise in financial markets. A tug of war is … Continue reading

Markets bounce back as expected – but maybe too fast!
I am touring on my Harley in Arizona and not focussed on markets, but yesterday’s Wall Street Journal headline “Subprime Bonds are Back” has me worried. Subtitle: As economy recovers, long-term investors willing to take on more risks.’ Bloomberg today … Continue reading
