Should The Big Drop In The Dow Be Of Concern?

Posted November 4, 2007 · 0 Comments
Last Thursday the DOW JONES INDEX dropped more than 362 points or 2.6%, its fourth-worst trading day of the year. Should this be a cause of concern? No, this drop was largely the reaction of big institutional investors to the financial services sector, which makes up a large percentage of the DOW. As the WALL STREET JOURNAL said, they were punishing big banks and brokerage firms like Citigroup, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney and Bear Stearns. These big banks and brokerage firms have been widely criticized in the press for lending billions of dollars to hedge funds on margin who were relending money to mortgage companies who were pushing loans to some people who had no jobs, no credit and no prospect of every paying them back. 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

These Are Very Scary Times For Many Investors

Posted August 8, 2008 · 20 Comments
I have a number of clients who are very much afraid of the stock market and are looking for something that is (1) safe, (2) will protect their principal and (3) will not have the up and down price swings of the current stock market. They are looking for an investment strategy with very little risk and VERY LITTLE VOLATILITY. Does FOXHALL CAPITAL have a strategy that meets those requirements? These are very scary times for many investors—especially older investors. General Motors just announced that they were suspending their dividend for the first time since 1922. 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

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

How Does Foxhall Manage Risk With The Current Turmoil In The Middle East?

Posted June 26, 2007 · 0 Comments
I keep reading that a political mishap or an escalation in wars in the Middle East could dramatically drive up oil prices and the stock market would go down. How does FOXHALL CAPITAL manage this type of risk? We believe that every investor in the stock market should always have a portion of their investments in “HARD ASSETS. “ Hard assets are investments in real things like oil, real estate, currencies, raw materials, gold, silver and other precious metals. read more

Commodities and the Stock Market Have Been Declining for 10 Days. Is This a New Bear Market or Just a Correction?

Posted May 18, 2011 · 109 Comments
One of the main reasons for the steep correction is that commodity exchanges around the world raised margin requirements four times in 10 days to discourage speculators investing with borrowed money on margin. This forced many leveraged investors out of the market. 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 Lost Decade

Posted March 31, 2010 · 0 Comments
Since the beginning of this year, 2010, through March 15th, the S&P 500 Index is up only about 3%. Almost every American knows that the U.S. Economy is not very strong.
