  • Bear Markets Create Opportunities
    EQUITIES Magazine - July 2009
    Despite the recent devastating global bear market, there is no doubt in my mind that we are simply going through another cycle. Mind you, I did not say just another cycle. This cycle has been extraordinary. Right now, the overwhelming belief is that equities are dead. Even during the most powerful rally in more than 70 years—nearly a 40% rally off the March 2009 low— most believe that this is nothing more than a bear market rally.

    CNBC - December 2008
    For as long as there have been investors, there have been scams like the one allegedly perpetrated by Bernie Madoff.

  • A Bull is Worried…
    August 2008
    Let me make it clear right up front- one of the things that I am not worried about is the stock market. We are currently in a Bear market and in a recession. These two facts do not worry me one bit. All Bull markets are followed by Bear markets, and all periods of expansion are followed by recessions. The good news is that we are probably somewhere near two thirds, or more, of the way through this Bear market and better times for the stock market are ahead. There are, however, three things that I am very worried about and each needs to be addressed soon so that the future is indeed a better place… [Read Now]

  • Focus on the Superlatives — Just tune out the rest
    Dick Davis Digest - July 2008
    “As always, there is no shortage of bad news,” says Jordan Kimmel (The Magnet Investment Group, LLC, is located in Randolph, NJ and may be reached at (973) 895-4444 or via Jordan@Magnetinvesting.com). “These days the list is longer and scarier than usual. The plunging dollar, skyrocketing energy costs, accelerating food costs, recession and stagflation - I will stop here. Yet, with all the horrible headlines, try renting a crane or a tanker. Try locking in steel or cement prices. The reality is that the world economy is doing just fine, thank you. As an investor, you need to learn to filter the news and the headlines - read and listen, but always be on the look out for what is going right and who is excelling. By nature, there can only be a few superlatives - finding the right industries, and the leaders in those industries, is the key to successful investing. [Read Now]
  • Banks, Techs Lead Rally ; Oil Falls by $5 a Barrel
    CNBC- July 2008

    “If you get too involved in the short term, this market will break your neck,” said Jordan Kimmel, portfolio manager at Magnet Investing Group. With all three major indexes dancing in and out of bear territory in the past week, a bounce is on the horizon but bad news like the Fannie-Freddie worries of yesterday’s session, is keeping it at bay. And, while stocks search for the capitulation point, it seems the mood on Wall Street has already found a bottom. “I’ve been doing this for over 25 years and I can’t remember the gloom and doom this thick, really, ever before,” said Jordan Kimmel, portfolio manager at Magnet Investing Group. “The whole mood of the market and cash on the sidelines resembles what has always been a turning point in the market,” he said. “When you get to these levels of extremes, things change.”
    The problem, though, is finding the catalyst — and Kimmel doesn’t think oil’s going to go much lower. [Read Now]
