Do you have a pro-inflation portfolio?

One thing we see lacking more than anything else when we look at portfolios right now is that most of them don’t have what we would call a pro-inflation portfolio. There aren’t enough inflation hedges in the portfolio. There are too many assets that are reliant on low-interest rates and low inflation. We’re probably not going back to less than 2% inflation like we saw the last decade and interest rates aren’t going back to under 1% anytime soon. It’s like just not happening.

A lot of investors still want to hold onto what did well in the last 10 years. They’re still on that growth trade. They still want to own all those large mega-cap stocks like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Apple. Those stocks could go up, it’s possible, but if we learned any lesson from the great tech bubble back in the late 90s’-00s’ it’s that a lot of these big companies like Microsoft can have a whole decade where the revenue continues to go up, the company does well, but the stock does nothing. That’s one of the risks you have with a lot of these hot names. It’s not that they get crushed. It’s just that they don’t do anything.

This week on the tipping point: Bad emotional decisions

There are two huge emotions in investing. Fear and greed! Any decision made on either one of them has always historically been wrong. When it comes to making decisions about investments, it’s extremely emotional.

A lot of times when you make decisions, you think you’re being logical but you’re actually being emotional. When you act emotionally you end up making bad decisions about how to allocate your capital. So in this episode, we talk about some of the bad emotional decisions we can make and how to protect ourselves from…well…ourselves. Removing emotion will help you make good, pragmatic, long-term decisions to create wealth over time and reach financial independence. Go listen now to see if maybe you are allowing emotions to damage your portfolio, and what to do if you are!
