As you read the list below, think about how you can learn more about each secret and adapt it to your own most effective use.

Secret #1: Contrarianism takes courage.
Everyone knows the essential investment formula: “Buy low, sell high,” but it is so much easier said than done, it might as well be a secret formula.
The way to really make it work is to invest in an asset or commodity that people want and need but that for reasons of market cyclicality or other temporary factors, no one else is buying. When the vast majority thinks something necessary is a bad investment, you want to be a buyer—that’s what it means to be a contrarian.
Obviously, if this were easy, everyone would do it, and there would be no such thing as a contrarian opportunity. But it is very hard for most people to think independently enough to risk hard-won cash in ways others think is mistaken or too dangerous. Hence, fortune favors the bold.

Secret #2: Success takes discipline.
It’s not just a matter of courage, of course; you can bravely follow a path right off a cliff if you’re not careful. So you have to have a game plan for risk mitigation. You have to expect market volatility and turn it to your advantage. And you’ll need an exit strategy.
The ways a successful speculator needs discipline are endless, but the most critical of all is to employ smart buying and selling tactics, so you don’t get goaded into paying too much or spooked into selling for too little.

Secret #3: Analysis over emotion.
This may seem like an obvious corollary to the above, but it’s a point well worth stressing on its own. To be a successful speculator does not require being an emotionless robot, but it does require abiding by reason at times when either fear or euphoria tempt us to veer from our game plans.
When a substantial investment in a speculative pick tanks—for no company-specific reason—the sense of gut-wrenching fear is very real. Panic often causes investors to sell at the very time they should be backing up the truck for more.
Similarly, when a stock is on a tear and friends are congratulating you on what a genius you are, the temptation to remain fully exposed—or even take on more risk in a play that is no longer undervalued—can be irresistible. But to ignore the numbers because of how you feel is extremely risky and leads to realizing unnecessary losses and letting terrific gains slip through your fingers.

Secret #4: Trust your gut.
Trusting a gut feeling sounds contradictory to the above, but it’s really not. The point is not to put feelings over logic, but to listen to what your feelings tell you—particularly about company people you meet and their words in press releases.
“People” is the first of Doug Casey’s famous Eight Ps of Resource Stock Evaluation, and if a CEO comes across like a used-car salesman, that is telling you something. If a press release omits critical numbers or seems to be gilding the lily, that, too, tells you something.
The more experience you accumulate in whatever sector you focus on, the more acute your intuitive “radar” becomes: listen to it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to take a chance on a story that looked good on paper but that your gut was warning you about, and then the investment disappoints. Kicking yourself is bad for your knees.

Secret #5: Assume Bulshytt.
As a speculator, investor, or really anyone who buys anything, you have to assume that everyone in business has an angle. Their interests may coincide with your own, but you can’t assume that.
It’s vital to keep in mind whom you are speaking with and what their interest might be. This applies to even the most honest people in mining, which is such a difficult business, no mine would ever get built if company CEOs put out a press release every time they ran into a problem.
A mine, from exploration to production to reclamation, is a non stop flow of problems that need solving. But your brokers want to make commissions, your conference organizers want excitement, your bullion dealers want volume, etc. And, yes, your newsletter writers want to eat as well; ask yourself who pays them and whether their interests are aligned with yours or the companies they cover.
(Bulshytt is not a typo, but a reference to Neal Stephenson's brilliant novel, Anathem, which defines the term, briefly, as words, phrases, or even entire books or speeches that are misleading or empty of meaning.)

Secret #6: The trend is your friend.
No one can predict the future, but anyone who applies him- or herself diligently enough can identify trends in the world that will have predictable consequences and outcomes.
If you identify a trend that is real—or that at least has an overwhelming amount of evidence in its favor—it can serve as both compass and chart, keeping you on course regardless of market chaos, irrational investors, and the ever-present flood of bulshytt.
Knowing that you are betting on a trend that makes great sense and is backed by hard data also helps maintain your courage. Remember; prices may fluctuate, but price and value are not the same thing. If you are right about the trend, it will be your friend. Also, remember that it’s easier to be right about the direction of a trend than its timing.

Secret #7: Only speculate with money you can afford to lose.
This is a logical corollary to the above. If you bet the farm or gamble away your children’s college tuition on risky speculations—and only relatively risky investments have the potential to generate the extraordinary returns that justify speculating in the first place—it will be almost impossible to maintain your cool and discipline when you need it.
As Doug likes to say; it’s better to risk 10% of your capital shooting for 100% gains than to risk 100% of your capital shooting for 10% gains.

Secret #8: Stack the odds in your favour.
Given the risks inherent in speculating for extraordinary gains, you have to stack the odds in your favor. If you can’t, don’t play.
There are several ways to do this, including betting on People with proven track records, buying when market corrections put companies on sale way below any objective valuation, and participating in private placements. The most critical may be to either conduct the due diligence most investors are too busy to be bothered with, or find someone you can trust to do it for you.

Secret #9: You can’t kiss all the girls.
This is one of Doug’s favourite sayings, and though seemingly obvious, it’s one of the main pitfalls for unwary speculators.
When you encounter a fantastic story or a stock going vertical and it feels like it’s getting away from you, it can be very, very difficult to do all the things I mention above. I can tell you from firsthand experience, it’s agonizing to identify a good bet, arrive too late, and see the ship sail off to great fortune—without you.

But if you let that push you into paying too much for your speculative picks, you can wipe out your own gains, even if you’re betting on the right trends.
You can’t kiss all the girls, and it only leads to trouble if you try. Fortunately, the universe of possible speculations is so vast, it simply doesn't matter if someone else beats you to any particular one; there will always be another to ask for the next dance. Bide your time, and make your move only when all of the above is on your side.

CSE vs COVID : REALITY, IDIOCRACY & FUTURE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Share this if you like to add research/factual sense to others.
Don't share if you don't want to

BACKGROUND:

I am not here to tell you what to do. I am not here to promote or demote shares . SELL IF YOU WANT. BUY IF YOU WANT. DO NOTHING IF YOU WANT. Its your money .

But am here to tell you something more important.

When market goes up, there are 100 of promoters, Gurus , Pundits, Youtube channels and Social media pages suddenly mushrooming in only a few months. There are 1000s of followers for such pages/channels too to collectively group together to make Hay when sun shines ( chase/pump up shares and them dump).

But when market crashes there are only 2 kinds of people left

1) People who creates doomsdays to collect lower ( or for other selfish reasons spread more panic)

2) Others who panic and follow #1

"SLSTOCK'S VIEWS" page who probably spends the most time to write research based / non manipulated posts for public still only get little love for the effort. I know that. Yet, my heart told me to write this to help the few sane people left to think, though I am facing my own COVID threats and other troubles.

Bottom line:
I am here to talk LOGICAL SENSE based on Research. I know I cannot make sense to BULLS IN CHINA SHOPS or people to not make Mountains out of Mole hills. I cannot also talk logical sense to Monkeys sitting on top of Donkeys , eating out of 3rd persons hand!

LETS START:
~~~~~~~~~

PART REASON FOR THIS MADNESS/PANIC AT CSE?

Within the last few months , if I recall right, I heard that CSE got 60% more ( CDS) accounts or something. That's simply massive. If you analyze who made those new accounts , it is an easy call.

Think :
What kind of shares were people chasing recently ? Were they Valuable dividend paying stocks or were they small / mid size shares that can be easily gang pushed to make money fast? You know the answer. EASY .

So majority of the people who got in to the stock market recently are same kind of people who entered in 2010/2011. They are mostly young , newbies who doesn't have any idea of value ( or want to learn about value) but think CSE is a FAST MONEY MAKING MACHINE. They think it is CASINO to ANNA AND PANNA.
How many GENUINE INVESTORS ARE HERE who will not follow the herd, but invest with patience? Raise your Hand ! I can guess 1 out of 20 maybe ! How many of you like /want fast money to Anna and Panna as you don't trust CSE ?

So , is it any wonder why ASI runs upwards like crazy during September, backed not by fundamentals but by mostly NON FUNDAMENTAL/LESS VALUE shares to PUMP AND DUMP ?
Guess whats happening now? The same people who worshiped online Gurus /promoters and who chased shares with no knowledge of value to get rich fast, is Panicking the same way to get out of CSE when they see some market sells off.

Then what happens. CHAIN REACTIONS.
Then what happens. The people who were initially less panic stricken starts to join the herd.
Then what happens? MORE CHAIN REACTION.

End results? We saw the real SRI LANKANISM how market crashed from 6300 to 4200 and then how market rushed from 4200 to 6000 right?

SRI LANKANS HAVE 95% literacy rate or something huh?
My Foot. What good does it do to being able to read/write ( say hey we are literate) but using NO BRAINS TO THINK.

ADD TO THAT THE REALLY POOR EDUCATION ON CORONA PEOPLE HAVE and instinct in our blood to behave like herd of cattle led to slaughter!

What comes ? EXTREMISM. IT IS CALLED EXTREMISM ( panic or hope)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WORLD CORONA SITUATION vs SRI LANKA:
~~~~

FACTS:

1) Sri Kanka to date has : about 3500 identified cases, 13 deaths.

2) INDIA has 6,6 Millions cases to date, Deaths 103000!
India reports about 50000 to 100000 new cases per day.
Soon it will pass USA as more PCR tests are done .

WE THINK SRI LANKANS ARE MORE EDUCATED THAN INDIAN RIGHT? ( Literacy rate) Okay.
TAKE A LOOK STOCK MARKET COMPASION CHART OF CSE VS INDIA I GENERATED! WHAT DO YOU SEE?

3) I am not in Sri Lanka. I am in a Country so heavily infected by Corona. FACT! In the region I am in ( not the country but the small area within maybe 20 mile radius) I am sure there are more Corona positive cases than whole of Sri Lanka!

4) The closest country to Sri Lanka Covid detection numbers is Thailand. Thailand has 3590 cases so far . Deaths 59 ( 4 times more than SL)

Tests done : Sri Lanka roughly did 13800 test per 1 Millions Thailand : 10000 per 1 Millions population. ( Thailand total population is about 3X the size of SL)

DO YOU THINK, INDIA, THAILAND OR EVEN ANY OTHER COUNTRY THAT HAS 1000 times higher covid numbers than Sri Lanka Behaves like the MONKEYS SITTING ON DONKEYS LIKE WE DO?

DO YOU THINK JUST TURNING POSITVE ON COVID TEST IS END OF THE WORLD ? Prince Charles had it. Trump has it. So many world leaders has it.

At this rate , if one more person dies from COVID ( I hope not), CSE will go back to 4000 huh? Brilliant, CSE people. Brilliant. Give yourself a pat on the back to make Sharks richer and us smaller spats poorer by behaving like this again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GREED, FEAR, IMMATURITY, LACK OF COVID EDUCATION , . LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ON CSE, PERSONAL SELFISH NEEDS ( to bring market down or pump it up as needed) is the full Sri Lankan package.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CSE FUNDAMENTAL SITUATION VS WORLD

I am just going let numbers talk.
Just look at the image I attached and note CSE, PER and PBV number compared to other countries. ( Thanks for Softlogic Brokers for the stat)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CSE TECHNICAL SITUATION :

In a previous update , I said " market corrections ( Red days) will be necessary as ASI 6000 came too fast, but it is important that ASI stay around or above 6000 eventually. What am saying is any Massive ASI corrections will be bad for market. I don;t expect unless some COVID issue happens."

Okay COVID issue did happen bringing out the panic stricken "dangara yaka" out of our sarongs. So it is bad for market!

Yesterday ASI closed at 462.99 down. MASSIVE! Why?

a) Was it a technical correction
b) Over-reaction to Covid panic issue.

Actually it is both combined with the new CSE Casino players I talked about before. 3 Troubles in 1.

Actually when CSE hit 6050 for the second time 2 days ago, technically it was massively massively overbought.
Sept run was too fast too far as I once said. Then OCT started too fast too.

Many shares were trading massively overbought
( even value shares like VONE, RCL were heated as per technicals )

So if one wants to see this as Technical correction, it is a very good thing for CSE as many shares that were over heated. Now heat is no more technically!

~~~~~~~~~

CSE and COMING DAYS?

I can do logical , fundamental and technical analysis.
But I cannot do numbskull ( people) analysis!

Out the recent Covid positive cases, of 98% of them are going to be just fine with very little or no complications. So what if even 200 more people turn positive to PCR tests. What is even a 1000 more
turn positive?

If Sri Lanka does more PCR tests per 1 Million population , these numbers will increase by 10s of thousands. ( Compare. Malta has tested 600000 people per 1 million. Thats 60 % of population. Okay it is very small country. But Sri Lanka 13800 per 1 Million ). I hate to think what will happen if we test more people and we find more positive cases!

Is it the End of the world being COVID positive?

Then USA , INDIA, SPAIN and BRAZIL etc would be dead and re- dead , then toasted and finally roasted.

In These countries lives are going along normal as they can with safety precautions in place . Their stock markets are not behaving like bulls in china shops like Sri Lanka either.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

FINAL NOTES :

COVID turning positive is not end of the world.
USA has 2 lak deaths. India 1 lak deaths.
Do you see them behaving like MONKEYS SITTING TOP OF DONKEYS SPITTING ON THEIR OWN FACES ( BY DESTROYING THEIR COUNTRY AND MARKETS)

One would think after the 2 recent crashes at CSE, people would have learnt a lesson .NOPE. Not our people.

What can you do?
ATLEAST BE EDUCATED ABOUT COVID.
BE EDUCATED ABOUT CSE.
EDUCATE OTHERS ( share this is you like!)
TRY NOT TO JOIN PANIC STRICKENS HERDS TO CREATE BIGGER PANIC !

But am not here to tell you to buy , sell or hold.
I will tell you MARKET WILL FALL AS LONG AS THESE CIRCUS MONKEYS ARE SITTING ON TOP OF STUBBORN DONKEYS TO RUN CASINOS TO EITHER MAKE QUICK MONEY OR LOSE MONEY EVEN QUICKER.

No one bought EXPO at Rs 2 ( I did but I sold with % as it was for trade). But now it is a miraculous wonder company at Rs 12 people even chase now! If it does not atleast report Rs 0.5 eps for Sept too, this is one hell of overvalued share. Even if they do report 0.5 eps it is still overvalued.

So , PANIC TO SELL WILL BE THERE AS LONG AS HERD PANICKERS ARE THERE . THEN PANIC TO BUY THE SAME SHARES THEY SOLD HIGHER WILL COME ONE DAY.

SRI LANKA !
WELCOME TO PEOPLE LIKE NO OTHER ( people don't say LAND like no other as it is an insult to our beautiful country )

Out the recent Covid positive cases, of 98% of them are going to be just fine with very little or no complications. So what if even 200 more people turn positive to PCR tests. What is even a 1000 more
turn positive?


If Sri Lanka does more PCR tests per 1 Million population , these numbers will increase by 10s of thousands. ( Compare. Malta has tested 600000 people per 1 million. Thats 60 % of population. Okay it is very small country. But Sri Lanka 13800 per 1 Million ). I hate to think what will happen if we test more people and we find more positive cases!

Is it the End of the world being COVID positive?

Then USA , INDIA, SPAIN and BRAZIL etc would be dead and re- dead , then toasted and finally roasted.

In These countries lives are going along normal as they can with safety precautions in place . Their stock markets are not behaving like bulls in china shops like Sri Lanka either.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

FINAL NOTES :

COVID turning positive is not end of the world.
USA has 2 lak deaths. India 1 lak deaths.
Do you see them behaving like MONKEYS SITTING TOP OF DONKEYS SPITTING ON THEIR OWN FACES ( BY DESTROYING THEIR COUNTRY AND MARKETS)


One would think after the 2 recent crashes at CSE, people would have learnt a lesson .NOPE. Not our people.

What can you do?
ATLEAST BE EDUCATED ABOUT COVID.
BE EDUCATED ABOUT CSE.
EDUCATE OTHERS ( share this is you like!)
TRY NOT TO JOIN PANIC STRICKENS HERDS TO CREATE BIGGER PANIC !


But am not here to tell you to buy , sell or hold.
I will tell you MARKET WILL FALL AS LONG AS THESE CIRCUS MONKEYS ARE SITTING ON TOP OF STUBBORN DONKEYS TO RUN CASINOS TO EITHER MAKE QUICK MONEY OR LOSE MONEY EVEN QUICKER.


No one bought EXPO at Rs 2 ( I did but I sold with % as it was for trade). But now it is a miraculous wonder company at Rs 12 people even chase now! If it does not atleast report Rs 0.5 eps for Sept too, this is one hell of overvalued share. Even if they do report 0.5 eps it is still overvalued.

So , PANIC TO SELL WILL BE THERE AS LONG AS HERD PANICKERS ARE THERE . THEN PANIC TO BUY THE SAME SHARES THEY SOLD HIGHER WILL COME ONE DAY.

SRI LANKA !
WELCOME TO PEOPLE LIKE NO OTHER ( people don't say LAND like no other as it is an insult to our beautiful country )

CSE THIS WEEK - Fri Dec 28, 2018 9:59 am

Sri Lanka voted by travel influencers as top destination in Asia for 2019
Dec 28, 2018

A panel consisting of five of the world’s top travel influencers and bloggers has voted Sri Lanka as the top emerging Asian travel destination for 2019. 

The awards were published last week on the site TravelLemming.com, which focuses on emerging and off-the-beaten path travel spots around the globe. 

Winners for the Asian awards were selected by an expert panel consisting of five of the best renowned travel bloggers and influencers in the world, with a combined following on social media of over 750,000.In describing why Sri Lanka won, the article reads: “Sri Lanka has been poised on the edge of tourism popularity for a few years now, and 2019 might finally be the year it pops. 

In fact, it was just named the #1 country in the world to travel to in 2019 by Lonely Planet. And, honestly, it’s hard to disagree with that assessment. From dreamy surf coasts to quiet jungle retreats, to incredible wildlife and history, Sri Lanka has all the makings of one of the greatest travel destinations on the planet.”

One of the judges, Meg Jerrard of the popular travel blog Mapping Megan, is quoted as saying: “Sri Lanka is a mesmerising and magical place with something for everyone, and enough diversity to keep a trip interesting. It has stunning beaches, is a haven for budget travellers, has flavourful food, and there are oodles of heritage, wildlife, and incredible landscapes just waiting to be hiked.”

Other judges on the panel included popular gay travel bloggers Nomadic Boys, hipster travel star Travels of Adam, the San Diego-based Instagram star Hackerette, and the acclaimed travel blogger Otts World. 

Travel Lemming CEO Nate Hake said: “One of the biggest trends in travel these days is the desire of tourists to get off the beaten path. Our six winning destinations in Asia are all great options for wonderful places to explore without the crowds!”

The site TravelLemming.com is dedicated to the promotion of travel to emerging travel destinations. The name lemming derives from the Scandinavian rodent, which is rumoured (falsely) to engage in such mindless group behaviour that it will literally follow fellow lemmings of a cliff to death. Travel Lemming encourages travellers to think beyond the popular destinations and to forge their own path. 

Travel Lemming was started by its founder Nate Hake, an American traveler from Denver, Colorado who is most famous for visiting 43 countries in a single year.

The reasons for losses are simple. In fact, there are only two root causes for investing losses, in my opinion:


  • Over estimation of one's ability to invest
  • Letting emotions, not processes, guide decisions.


These two reasons account for over-trading and loss aversion, which cause most of the damage for investors.

#1: Over estimation of one's abilities

There's a well documented cognitive bias called (Dunning–Kruger effect) which states that novices tend to be overly confident of their abilities.

This causes vicious cycles in investing, leading to losses. Here's how.


  • A novice investor opens a stock account, believing that he or she can time the market consistently due to over-confidence.
  • This bias toward market timing leads to over-trading, i.e. making more than the necessary number of trades
  • This leads to an unnecessary piling of trade commissions, as well as wasted time and effort staring at markets
  • This piling of transaction costs naturally causes a negative drift in the account.


Thus, if you take two average joes who start investing, the over-confident one will more likely lose money than the conservative one due to transaction costs.

And given the Dunning-Kruger effect, more often than not, most new entrants are over confident, and incur unnecessary losses due to transaction costs.

This perverse influence of Dunning-Krugger effect can be directly seen in retail investors' trading results.

As you can see, the average holding period for investors is probably at all time lows, not withstanding the effects of high frequency trading.

This means that the churn is at all time highs, and the same for transaction costs. This has been going on for multiple decades as brokerages have made it their bread and butter to encourage trading.

Unfortunately, as I have written in the past, trading is akin to flying a plane in terms of the required degree of preparation and high stakes.

Thus, one could make an argument that all the negative media and frictionless trading (like e-Trade, Robinhood, etc) are probably really bad for investors.

#2: Letting emotions, not processes, guide decisions.

It has been well documented that investors tend to sell the low, buy the high, i.e. momentum chasers (in a negative sense).

One way to see that is to look at the net retail investors flows in/out of domestic equity funds.

As you can see, retail investors pulled out a record amount out of the markets in 2008 (at the peak of the crash), and put in the record amount in 2007 (right before the crash).

* The size of the red bar indicates the domestic in/out flow. Red is retail flow.

So basically, most retail investors get greedy and panic at inopportune times.

This is due to the basic fear/greed mechanism.

People (professionals included) tend to over-project their optimism when things are good.

And people tend to get depressed, bipolar when things hit the fan, leading to irrational actions.

And they let their emotional state project itself onto their investing decisions (as we see in the chart), leading to missteps.

Successful investors are taking losses periodically. Once they think that they are wrong they sell their bad eggs and buy future winners while keeping their golden eggs. Others sell winning stocks and buy losing stocks.

Top 6 Consumer Staples Stocks For the Q4 Earnings Season

The Way to Pick the Right Stocks 

Obviously, there are quite a few companies in the consumer staples space, so it may be difficult to pick the right stock for your portfolio. One way to narrow down the list of choices is by looking at stocks with a favorable Zacks Rank of #1 (Strong Buy), #2 (Buy) or #3 (Hold) - and a positive Earnings ESP . 

Earnings ESP is our proprietary methodology to determine which stocks have the best chance to surprise in their next earnings announcement. It shows the percentage difference between the Most Accurate estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Our research shows that for stocks with this combination, the chance of positive earnings surprise is as high as 70%. 

Here are six consumer staple stocks currently equipped with the right combination of elements to post an earnings beat: 

6 Prominent Choices 

Dean Foods Company ( 

DF
 ), which processes and distributes milk, and other dairy and dairy case products in the United States. The stock carries a Zacks Rank #3 and has an Earnings ESP of +5.88%. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the fourth quarter of 2015 stands at 34 cents a share. The Dallas, TX-based company delivered an average positive earnings surprise of 17.03% over the trailing four quarters and has a long-term earnings growth rate of 10.5%. The company is slated to report results on Feb 9.
