Jordan Roy-Byrne - Techncial Commentary – Fri 9 Mar, 2018

Portfolio Management Strategy For Risky Sectors

Jordan Roy-Byrne and I usually chat about the technical factors at play in the metals sectors. However this segment we discuss how Jordan likes to build and manage a portfolio of small cap stocks (in this case resource stocks). We share the factors we think are key in our personal portfolios for stocks that are winners and losers.

This is a longer than usual discussion but there was a lot to cover. That being said please share your suggestions on any rules you follow for your portfolio.

      It would have a great difficulty in even avhieving MAD, Mutually Assured Destruction, against Russia. The stupid policy and efforts of the treacherous President Obama (or did he deliberatedly and traitorously degrade American defense) have left the US vunerable to a first strike by Russia.

      Here is the stated current defense posture: (73 page summary)

      But I will post 2 discussions of the actual Russian vs. Russia capability, following this.

          OOTB Jerry says:

          Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.

          The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whomever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

          The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

            Humans are yesterdays dinosaurs, they have clearly been unable to adapt to the change they have created. Take the Korean situation,an armistice was signed 65 years ago but The US is unable to negotiate a peace and leave The Korean Peninsula to The Koreans. We live in a World where war divides and destroys but does not allow intelligent reasoning. Our species is too stupid to survive as a dominant life form. DT

Confusion reigns in the minds of people like you who keep pointing out our failings but refuse to see how stubborn we as a species are to the change we have created for ourselves. DT

            There is a different between stupidity and ignorance.

            OOTB Jerry, you may not be stupid, but you simply do not understand what a debt Jubilee is or does to society.

            I have told you this several times before over the months, if not years.

            Since most pension funds typically invest about 40% of their portfolios in debt.

            What do imagine happens if 40% of a pension portfolio was set to zero?

            Many corporation park short term money in short term treasuries.

            What do you think if all corporation short term money disappeared?

            OOTB, you do not understand what a debt jubilee would do.

            A universal debt Jubilee transfers wealth from the productive, wealthier members of society to the debtors or lessor productive members of society.

            A government debt Jubilee is simply a currency default.

      Agreed. This interview with Jordan and Cory was particularly good.

      I really resonated with Jordan’s point on trimming winners when they have achieved one’s targets (based on that individual’s risk tolerance and time horizons). It doesn’t have to necessarily be a “sell half on the double” either, as he pointed out. Personally I typically trim 20-33% on a big move higher, but it depends on what I’m hoping for in a particular stock as some are lottery tickets, some are deep value, some are high torque alpha stocks, and some are slow and steady climbers.

      In addition I agreed with the points made about being over-weight in the names you feel the most confident in, and some of the most speculative/less confident/more risky plays take a smaller position in a basket of them to spread the risk.

    Good stuff, Jordan and Cory!
    It’s perfectly fine to be a little late to the party and early to leave. Taking a profit is what it’s all about. The sickest feeling of all is watching a stock go down and sitting on it, only to go down further, and then go down even further..

    If the MACD, slow sto, PMO and TSI roll over on the daily, I’m out no matter how much I like the sector or the stock. Fall in love with nothing financial.

      Chartster – agreed that “taking a profit is what it is all about” and “fall in love with nothing financial.”

      They are just financial instruments for trading, and with resource stocks it is best not to overstay one’s welcome when they have a winning and profitable position.
