  1. Can you believe there was a time when Japan’s land was worth more than the entire United States?

    I want to thank you all for your continued support of the channel and I look forward to those of you who can join our closed beta group in December. This will be a valuable investing resource for many of you and provide additional financial resources for me to continue improving the channel and delivering you interesting and informative content. Thank you!

  2. This is one of the reasons why a portion of my overall investment portfolio is in individual stocks. Majority of my portfolio is in VTSAX and VGTSX. I tend to invest roughy 20-30% of my portfolio in individual stocks for when the market is in a downtrend or stagnant. With this, I am still collecting dividends and hopefully bought the right companies at the right time to where I am beating the market.

  3. finally, someone who can grasp the investment environment of the 2000's, When Dave Ramsey quotes 7% annual return, I have to laugh in a sad way about what money has not done in my lifetime.

  4. Hi Michael, are you still averaging down on VNTR? I've been hesitant to buy it due to TiO2 prices being at the tail end of the peak cycle, and because they seem quite disorganized regarding replacing Pori. Having said this, $6.02 seems too cheap to ignore…

  5. Whats your thoughts on the Peter Schiff 'buy gold' mindset? He's in a gold business so one may see that advice as a conflict of interest but from what I gather he says reason to own gold is for insurance against the dollar becoming hyper inflated(when a government's debt grows out of hand). Every single fiat currency in the history of the world has ended in hyper inflation and the only reason the United States has managed to run the largest deficits in the history of the world is because they got lucky by becoming the world's reserve currency which may not last.

    He thinks durning the upcoming the monetary stimulus-induced recession, the fed is either going to try to reflate the bubble again and fail simply because we have too much debt, and too little production since the vast majority of GDP is consumption based.

  6. Very good points Michael! Investing for the long term is usually the idea and has been working in some instances. Once I looked in the history of the stock market, although 100 years is kind of long, it is also kind of short with only limited data honestly. I feel like anything could still happen and we have to be aware like you mentioned with the long flat periods in history. Long story short…I'm getting into dividend stocks lol

  7. So lucky that I sold nearly every stock I owned for 6 month this morning except for the ones I bought after watching this channel. Because just finish reading the book The Intelligent Investor(your suggestions, and it’s really good!) and found that dame I picked super popular overvalued and dangerous stocks. Before I can really read and understand better the financial statements and be able to do some meaningful calculations, I will just wait or put money in bonds and doing index funds dollar cost averaging. You are so young and so good, wish to learn more from you!

  8. Are you, by any chance, missing the point that S&P500 today's companies are not in it 100 years ago. Isn't this apples to oranges comparison? I thought S&P500 is always updated by adding/removing companies from its index based on performance. So S&P500 benchmark is misleading.

  9. Hello Michael,

    Thoughts on KGKG and ETII?? The hemp energy drinks and water seem to be taking off.. Having crazy Green days. Would you consider adding any of those to your portfolio as high risk high reward?

  10. That's one of my biggest investment nightmares – that we will get a Japanese type bear market that lasts for 30+ years. Perhaps in the future, it will be said that the people who started investing in 2015-2018 didn't get that money back even after 30 years. Of course, you can mitigate these losses if you average down during the bear market. But you can't do that if you have invested all your savings at the top.

  11. Great video Michael!
    For most of us who live outside the US and invest larger amounts in our home countries we are painfully aware of what you are discussing.
    I'm Canadian and here and in Europe most indexes are still below the 2008 high.
    If you aren't aware of John Hussman and his research on valuing markets I suggest you check him out.
    Like you he has been invaluable to me in giving context to the US market.
    I will definitely join your mailing list, top notch content!

  12. Ive Bought a lil across the market from Marijuana to tech stocks in the dips and now I stop.Sitting In 70% cash for more dips lower then 20% to come.And we know if it goes lower then this the big one wich is over due will visit the stock market.

  13. The answer not seen in this video is, a portion of one’s portfolio allocated to trend following smooths out bear & bull markets. The evidence is mixed on whether returns are enhanced (the 2000s were fantastic for trend strategies).

    Having this part of your portfolio gives you fresh ammunition for value-orientated stocks and avoids the dead weight of cash and bonds.

    The CAPE ratio & Buffet Indicator can’t be used to improve returns since markets can stay overvalued for a long time.

  14. what do you think of using the dow jones/gold ratio as a tool of (over-)valuation? At this point we need ~20 ounces of gold to buy the dow jones. in the bubble it was at 40 ounzes. an average house in my country is worth 420 ounces, while the historically average was around 300. One problem I have with that is that the gold price itself might be incorrect, so under or overvalued.
    as always, thanks for the video.

  15. This video is flawed you take snap shots of periods of time and quotes that are not related to one another. Looking at 10 years periods is worthless as an investment lifetime is 30,40,50 years or more.

    So a market goes sideways for 10 years you buy shares and when it breaks out you reap the benefits or you look for stocks that are value purchases at that time depending on if you are a passive or active investor.

    What is the other option sit on the sidelines for 10 years?

  16. Thanks 4 your video. I'm new to investing and don't buy the time in the market mantra either. I'm currently building up my savings in a Roth IRA money market account waiting for the market to dip, then 1-2 years later I'll invest it.

  17. Michael,

    You seem to be a most intelligent person. I admire you for not using words such as 'you guys', amazing, super good, and all such words that uneducated people use. I have gathered wonderful knowledge from your videos. Any woman would be very lucky to marry you. I really mean it. Many loser girls will find you too intelligent as they like hollow-headed bad boys. May you stay away from such girls.

    Thank you for helping so many of us.

  18. One more thing to consider when looking at those 20+ year stretches where you would only break even, is the effect of dollar cost averaging. The charts generally assume you bought in at the beginning and then let your money ride up and down the roller coaster. However, one might have started contributing modest amounts at a fairly consistent rate around the market peak, but as the market falls, and for as long as it stays down, that person, if they have the stomach to stay the course, is contributing far more, and getting better value, until the market becomes overvalued again. That being said, I don't think this is the best time to invest a huge lump sum of cash–better to save a solid chunk and have it handy to buy the dips.
