    Dogs of the S&P 500? These 3 stocks crashed 20% or more this week but could be good values now

    Dogs of the S&P 500? These 3 stocks crashed 20% or more this week but could be good values now

    The market closed a volatile week with yet another selloff on Friday, and has managed to push both the S&P 500 as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average nearly into correction territory with the NASDAQ 100. Along the way, investors, analysts and experts everywhere are now asking the question about where the market is going to go from here. Days where the Dow moves 300 points or more in a single day have seemingly been the norm over the last couple of weeks, and that is something that makes the market a hard place for most investors to keep up with.

    What’s Going On With Dividend Stocks?

    What’s Going On With Dividend Stocks?

    • Dividend investments have been loosing ground lately.
    • If the FED raises rates 4 times in 2018, there will be more ground lost.
    • However, there is a dividend strategy that will do well no matter what happens.



    Introduction

However, lately dividend investors haven’t been having a great time as, while dividend years have been going up, asset prices have been going down, especially for many of the most beloved dividend stocks.

    Here’s The Truth About Investing In Argentina

    Here’s The Truth About Investing In Argentina

    I usually do the opposite of what others do.

    Just a year ago, according to the Wall Street Journal, many investors—like Morgan Stanley, T.

    iShares even launched an Argentinian ETF and all seemed well until interest rates in the U.S. increased which made people think more about the risks and made them less attracted to the quick, high interest rate gains in Argentina. More →

    This Is What You Need To Know To Be A Successful Investor

    Warren Buffett has stated that all you need to know for profitable long term investing is in chapters 8 and 20 of Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor.

    Chapter 8 is titled “The Investor and Market Fluctuations,” which is something we are all always intrigued by. The key is to prepare both financially and psychologically for market fluctuations.



    Market Fluctuations As A Guide To Investment Decisions – Timing Vs. Pricing

    Graham distinguishes between two ways of taking advantage of market fluctuations: you can time the market or you can price it. Timing assumes you predict where the stock market will go next, while pricing makes you look for stocks trading below their fair value.  More →
