Capitalize on Global Growth with These Five High Scoring Industrials

Global economic growth is surging, and many analysts contend that global equity markets are in for a strong 2018. For investors wanting to participate in the continuing bull market, overseas stocks are generally offering a better value than their U.S. counterparts, and might represent a good alternative if economic growth continues. Factories across the globe are running near full capacity-Chinese industrial utilization rates reached 78% in the fourth quarter of 2017, the highest level since 2011.

Eight Deep-Value Stocks That Look Particularly Attractive as Interest Rates Rise

It's certainly been one long decade for value investors. This year had promised to see a reversal of years of underperformance, but at least so far, that hasn't happened. Is there still hope that conditions may finally be turning? Yes, this has been said before only to be proved wrong. Many expected the turn to come in 2015 and again in 2016, and for a while, it appeared it might have finally done so. But the market roared last year on the expectation of lower regulation and tax cuts, negating any momentum value might have gained.

Winning In The Market With The Patience Of The Wright Brothers And Warren Buffett

Patience is a firm requirement if you want to succeed at just about anything, and investing is no exception. But suppose you are working toward an investment goal that you're certain will lead to significant, possibly even game-changing gains over the long term, yet there is no immediate gratification or validation in sight? Would you have the patience to stick to your guns? This might be an interesting question to pose to the Wright brothers, who ushered in the age of aviation in 1903 after years of building printing presses and bicycles. Their first glider, which they tested in 1900, was a bust, but they kept their noses to the grindstone by constructing a wind tunnel to test nearly 200 wings and airframes of different shapes and designs.

Three Mantras for Investors

Last year was an anomaly. There hasn't ever been a year like 2017, when the S&P 500 rose each month. Investors tend to believe that the most recent results are what will happen in the future. But that can be dangerous. Warren Buffett has famously said investors should be "fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful." So betting on a continuation of that low volatility was inevitably going to be a losing bet, at least eventually.
