Investing


In this section you will find Fundamental Trends investment ideas, research and model portfolios. Fundamental Trends offers investment ideas in three categories: Stocks, ETFs and Option.
My stock ideas come from fundamentally screened companies that come from three different lists: Fundamental Leaders, Emerging Leaders and Cyclical Leaders. Those are whittled down to my famous “Very Short List” which includes 100 companies that I believe could lead in the next decade (which is much more important that the last decade for investors). 
My ETF ideas are dedicated to buidling exceptional Intelligent Asset Allocations that manage risk through diversification and offer upside opportunity in growing and/or undervalued sectors and regions of the globe.  
I do my own primary research, as well as, review dozens of other’s research. By leveraging the research of many, and sifting for the best ideas, we can find the few investments that make the most sense for generating growth and income.
What truly makes this investment letter different is our approach to buying and selling which is managed for risk differently than most others. I make extensive use of “limit orders” and cash-secured put option selling to scale into positions and secure low costs basis My indpendently monitored track record can be found at TipRanks.

The “new” Fundamental Trends is in beta and making adjustments based on member feedback.) They say we should learn from our mistakes. This is one thing that “they” have right. […]

A Call On Tesla

Tesla is perhaps the biggest “battleground” stock in the stock market. Bulls are foot stomping bulls and bears are chest thumping bears. It’s quite the site to behold when they get to blogging at each other without really understanding what they are talking about. Tesla might be the company most tied to the sustainable investing trend. It’s a fine poster child if it is. From years of floating along to […]

Fade The Market In Early April

Money flows are observable and somewhat predictable for markets. In December, I discussed how money flow was negatively impacting the stock market. Here is that article: 4 Pieces of Missing Money Crushing Markets In short, outflows from liquidating hedge funds, tax-loss selling, a Fed that had ramped up QT to $50 billion a month, virtually no foreign investment (see China’s 90% plus fall off) and the permanent dribble out of […]
