Kevin Cook here to start the week off for Steve...
The politicking in Washington last week didn't bring the nation any closer to an operational budget. And by the time you are reading this Monday morning, it is highly likely that no real progress was made over the weekend either. Such is our system where aspirations to serve the public good are often clouded, and corrupted, by the incentives of power.
But the big message of the market was "Are you guys done yet? We want to take these stocks higher!" That's what I heard anyway. Investors continued to plow money into strong stocks making new 52-week highs. I had 6 of 8 names in my Follow The Money portfolio answer the new-highs call "forget the Dow - give us growth!"
You know that bull markets climb walls of worry. And this new roadblock on the investment mountain from our lawmakers is just more proof of this bull's strength. If there was any doubt about a market that wants to go higher, you saw it vaporized almost every day last week.
Speaking of investor appetite for growth, all of the articles (and my video) below address a unique aspect of the current bull, including the possibility and impact of a month-long government shut-down. It's looking a lot like the crowd is going back to their business while the gunfighters at the OK Corral just stare and hurl insults.
Just press a button and PRESTO - out pops the list of stocks from a market-beating strategy. In fact, since 2001, one screen has averaged a yearly gain of +67.4%. Even during 2008, while the market plunged -37.0%, those picks were up +15.3%.
Investors marvel that it's "like a license to print money." "No benchmark stands a chance!" Why wait another day?
