Investing where it’s hot and where it’s profitable are rarely in alignment
There’s so much opportunity in the market right now and a lot of you are just looking at the wrong thing. Isn’t that the way it always is though, it’s like whatever we anticipate the most and wherever the money’s flowing the most at the same time tends to be where we get the least amount of return over time. It’s the great irony of the stock market.
Warren Buffet is selling even more of this Apple stock, not buying into the hot tech trade. He’s buying really exciting stocks like Chevron and Verizon, which are not only inexpensive right now, but also pay great dividends. Maybe he’s lost his touch because obviously, all your money should be in electric vehicles, Bitcoin, SPACs, and anything growth-related.
This week on the tipping point: Giving in to greed

As we know from managing money now for a collective 70 plus years, when it comes to your money, giving in to that desire of greed can end very badly. Gordon Gekko’s famous speech said greed is good but he lost everything and ended up going to jail, so maybe greed isn’t that good after all. Check out the episode where we talk about how greed can be very detrimental to your financial health specifically right now!

The first electric age effectively ended in 1915 after Henry Ford and Thomas Edison teamed up to take a crack at electric vehicles. The stately battery-powered sedans of the pre-World War One era appealed mostly to well-to-do urbanites. President Woodrow Wilson drove around the White House grounds and his Milburn Electric. Apparently, these vehicles were too slow, too heavy, and too costly. Check out the show for more hidden facts of finance!
