The Market Is Smarter Than Everybody! Ep#105

By November 30, 2022No Comments

What’s up! It’s episode 105 of Payne Points of Wealth and the economy continues to chug along. We had retail spending up even with record-high inflation. We’re starting to see on the ground floor inflation coming down, and unemployment is still strong, yet every economist and strategist still say we’re going to fall off a cliff. We’re going to address that today. We’ve seen a huge rally in the global markets over the course of the last couple of weeks, specifically internationally. Should you be playing that in your portfolio? Well, we’re gonna break it down for you. Check it out.

Emerging markets are trending!

Right now we’re talking about how we don’t know what’s going to happen next, we don’t know what’s going on. But one thing I do know is what we don’t expect is what’s going to happen. We’ve seen this with what I call the pandemic hangover trade. We’ve seen disruptive technology, and it’s still getting slaughtered here, even as markets are recovering, and I think one of the most obvious trends in the world is emerging markets. You look at the emerging markets right now, they’ve been growing faster than the US in terms of profits growth since like 1995, yet their stock market is in the same place it was in 2007. So there are a lot of places you can be allocating your capital right now that are dirt cheap that are poised to rise in the future.

This week on the tipping point: When to take action and when not to

When it comes to financial planning, sometimes it’s good to take action, but other times it’s better to maybe just hold back and let things play out. So let’s talk about when you should be taking action and when you should not take action when it comes to your financial independence plan.

A point of confusion, when it comes to action or no action, is eliminating debt. It’s actually a trickier conversation than it used to be because at the beginning of this year your mortgage would typically be your largest debt and you were getting a 2-3% rate depending on how long you’re going out. Now you’re paying like 6-7% and it really becomes a portfolio decision and with rates so much higher right now, I would say unless you’re locked into a lower rate it might be better to start paying off debt and as opposed to mortgaging, maybe just paying out right if you have cash because that’s a real hard spread to get over the long term if you’re starting to borrow at like 6-7%.

This week’s hidden facts of finance

  • India will have the highest growth rate of all countries over the next 10 years, there are also opportunities in parts of the Middle East, and North Africa, although capital markets in these places are still very early in development, you gotta have some money around the world.
  • What do FTX, Vroom, Draft Kings, and Coinbase all have in common besides the fact they’re down 62 to 98% so far this year? They all spent $6.5 million per 30 seconds for Super Bowl ads just less than a year ago.
  • Since the inception date of 8/1/2001 CNBC’s Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts Plus portfolio returned a cumulative 210%. Compare that to the S&P 500’s 398%, nearly 50% better.
