Following The Long Term Trends

Posted July 10, 2008 · 0 Comments
I know the FOXHALL “DEFENSIVE STRATEGY” in bear markets is made up of (1) bonds, (2) foreign currency funds to offset the falling U.S. Dollar and (3) oil, energy, metals, mining, agriculture and other commodities and basic materials funds. BUT, OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS COMMODITIES HAVE DECLINED PRECIPITOUSLY. AGRIBUSINESS COMMODITY FUNDS are down this month 6%. STEEL FUNDS are down over 9% and METALS AND MINING FUNDS are down over 12%. It is hurting your FOXHALL performance. I thought commodities were supposed to go up when the stock market was going down. read more

How Will The Decline In Real Estate Effect The Economy?

Posted July 25, 2007 · 7 Comments
I keep reading that the U.S. economy is slowing, partially because of the decline in real estate. How will this effect the stock market over the next few months? As I am writing this commentary, it is Thursday July 26, 2007, and the DOW dropped 311 points today or about 2.26%, because of housing market fears. Just so you know, a 2.26% drop in the market is not near enough of a decline for FOXHALL to implement our “DEFENSIVE” strategy and move out of the stock market and into bonds. The stock markets have reached record highs this month in the DOW and S&P 500 INDEXES. This is simply a short-term correction with a lot of institutional investors taking profits. read more

The Economy in 2009

Posted January 15, 2009 · 0 Comments
The Carnage Of 2008 Has Been Nothing Short Of Breathtaking! 2008 was a horrible year. Virtually every stock market asset class crashed simultaneously. The Dow had its worst losing year since 1931 when the Great Depression was in full swing. The S&P 500 Index was down 38.5% in 2008, the worst stock market drop since 1937 and the third worst drop in the history of the US stock market. That easily makes 2008 the nastiest annual decline ever experienced by most current investors. read more

When Do You Think Commodities And Asian Markets Will Start Going Up?

Posted September 4, 2008 · 31 Comments
At Foxhall Capital we “follow trends” rather than try to predict short-term stock market ups and downs. People tend to have short memories—In August 2007, oil prices dropped about 20%—just as they have this year after first climbing to new highs. I remember receiving calls from investors asking if they should move their portfolios out of commodities like oil and gold. read more

When Will Oil Prices Stop Going Up?

Posted May 16, 2008 · 0 Comments
My clients keep asking me when oil prices will stop going up. What do I tell them? OIL PRICES WILL KEEP GOING UP! As I have mentioned before in the FOXHALL GLOBAL OUTLOOK there are many factors causing oil to go up. First is supply and demand. While we Americans continue to complain about prices, we still consumed more gasoline last year than we did the previous year. China and India are now the second and third largest auto markets in the world and they are consuming record amounts of new gasoline. read more

Why Is Global Investing Important?

Posted May 5, 2008 · 0 Comments
One of my clients asked me why global investing was important. Are there any studies that definitively explain the importance of global diversification in a client’s investment portfolio? YES—GLOBAL DIVERSIFICATION IS A MUST! After your grandmother told you as a child to always “buy low and sell high,” she also probably reminded you “not to put all of your eggs in one basket”—at least that’s what my grandmother used to tell me! That is the underlying timeless wisdom of global diversification. read more

How Can Foxhall Be Up When The Asian Stock Market Is Down?

Posted June 5, 2008 · 34 Comments
You are right; almost every Asian stock market is down year-to-date. As of last week, the Dow Jones China Broad Market Index was down over 33% year-to-date. It was down earlier in the year almost 40%. The Honk Kong Index was down over 21% and the Saigon Stock Exchange was down 50%. Chinese Stock Markets are down over 33%. read more

What Will Be Happening In Asia And Emerging Markets?

Posted January 28, 2008 · 0 Comments
GREETINGS FROM SINGAPORE! A number of people have emailed me regarding the following quote I made in last week’s FOXHALL GLOBAL OUTLOOK: “I believe there will be a significant rally in Asian and emerging markets over the next month and at that time FOXHALL CAPITAL will determine whether to decrease our already reduced holdings in Asian and emerging markets based on the expected U.S. slowdown.” read more

Active Investments And Buy-And-Hold Investments

Posted September 27, 2007 · 0 Comments
How do I explain to my clients, the difference between “ACTIVE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT” and “BUY-AND- HOLD INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT?” An important new academic study, “SECTOR ROTATION AND MONETARY CONDITIONS,” which is slated for publication in the prestigious JOURNAL OF INVESTING early next year, gives new academic confirmation to the FOXHALL investment management strategy of “active investment management.” read more

How Much To Diversify Our Portfolios Outside The U.S. Market?

Posted September 6, 2007 · 0 Comments
Given the recent turmoil in the U.S. stock markets because of the subprime mortgage scandals, how much should an investor diversify their investment portfolios outside of the United States? THE RISK OF JUST INVESTING IN THE U.S. The impact of the so-called “sub-prime mortgage crisis” on the U.S. stock market-remember that sub-prime lending is a very tiny piece of the overall economy-serves to remind us that investing in a single country heightens the volatility and risk EVEN when that one country is the United States! This is why almost every academic study points out that global diversification is the secret to managing risk in any investment portfolio. read more

What Is Happening With Banks And How Does It Affect Our Investments?

Posted September 16, 2008 · 0 Comments
We saw the Dow Index drop 500 points in one day this week. What is happening with the banks and how does that affect our investments? First, all of the Foxhall Capital portfolios are almost exclusively invested in U.S. government treasury bonds and money markets. The bonds are fully guaranteed by the US Government. Even our Foxhall Capital individual stock and bond accounts are now fully invested in U.S. government bonds and money markets. read more

Isn't This Trend Applicable In Other Emerging Markets Too?

Posted June 12, 2008 · 0 Comments
In your last Foxhall Global Outlook you talked about how the next big GLOBAL SUPER-CYCLE INVESTMENT TREND was investing in those companies and commodities that will be used by China over the next decade in their trillion dollar infrastructure investment programs. Isn’t this trend applicable in other emerging markets too? I hear many other emerging markets are spending big sums on their own infrastructure development. You are right! Many emerging markets around the globe are flush with U.S. currency reserves. read more

Is Foxhall Ready For The Chinese Market Correction?

Posted June 6, 2007 · 52 Comments

We continue to watch the Chinese markets carefully. read more

What Is Happening To The Housing Market?

Posted April 10, 2008 · 1 Comment
Several weeks ago, another FEDERAL RESERVE report stated that the most serious lending abuses in ADJUSTABLE RATES MORTGAGES (ARMs) took place within the last 18 months. Most of those ARMs have not yet triggered their higher rates. The report stated that the worst of the housing foreclosures was still to come and that most of these foreclosures would reach a peak in the second half of 2009 and the first half of 2010. read more

Why Foxhall Capital's Risk Management Strategies Are So Important!

Posted July 2, 2010 · 3 Comments
As we end the second quarter of this year, the stock market is still in the process of regressing to the long-term trend of the underlying economy. Based on how overvalued the stock market was before this correction, I believe the stock market may continue to correct for the next few months. This is why Foxhall Captial's risk management strategies are so important! read more

What is the Status of This Summer’s Stock Market Correction?

Posted June 15, 2011 · 8 Comments
Investors have always had very short memories. They forget that the Dow Jones Industrials plunged 13.6% last year in the spring, but the Dow is currently only down a little over 6% below its April 29th peak. At FOXHALL we are trend followers and as trend followers we also track shorter cycles within the overall stock market. read more

Stock Market Update: The Summer Doldrums

Posted June 2, 2011 · 83 Comments

Posted July 19, 2011 · 0 Comments
A number of people have asked me will Foxhall Capital employ any defensive measures, like going to cash if our brave political leaders continue to “play chicken” with the debt ceiling. read more

Just Another Stock Market Correction

Posted August 5, 2011 · 11 Comments
Analyst seem to agree that the decline in the stock market has more to do with a lack of confidence in politicians in the U.S. and Europe, than in the fundamentals of companies trading on the stock market. This is more of a political crisis of confidence than anything else. read more

The Stock Market Roller Coaster Ride Isn't Over Yet!

Posted December 1, 2011 · 1 Comment
Perhaps this type of volatile, sideways market reflects the mediocre economic news from around the globe. Asia and Emerging Markets are slowing, Japan has flat growth, Europe looks to be heading for a recession, and the U.S. is still growing—but at a very slow pace. read more
