Real Time Insight

One thing that tons and tons of money managers keep talking about is the Tsunami of cash that is sitting on the sidelines. It is generating almost no return for the individuals that hold it, so why would they not look to at least a safe bet in a utility or some other defensive style of investment?

I mean Google (GOOG) isn't going anywhere... and neither is Apple (AAPL - Analyst Report), right? Yes, you can question the valuation of each, but in 5 years, those companies will still be around and it would take a substantial development for those stocks to be cut in half. So what am I missing?

Does it have anything to do with the Billionaire boys club and the attack of Herbalife (HLF - Snapshot Report) that just doesn't seem like it will end? Throw on top of that the idea of Nu Skin (NUS - Snapshot Report) a company with a similar MLM sales model as HLF and the fact that there are now two investigations into it in China.

What about NQ Mobile ? Muddy Waters says it is a fraud but Sprint, who likely does some intense due diligence into its partners just signed a new deal with the company. I mean what are investors to think about what is happening there?

So I come to it. Investors simply do not trust the stock markets.

Yep, I said it. They have no faith in Wall Street as it is populated by Bernie Madoff's and select other Wolves. I mean why risk it on Wall Street when I can go to Vegas and risk it on Black... or maybe Red?

 

So on to my question... How can we get Main Street to trust Wall Street again?
 

This is going to be a fun one... so let me hear it!!!!!
No holds barred... give me all your ideas!!!!

I will do my best to reply to them all!
