Opportunity Knocks Early! | Stock Talk Podcast

July 1, 2022

The Oak Harvest team wants to wish you a happy, safe, and blessed 4th of July weekend as this video should be going to publication just in front of the holiday. Click here to learn more.

Opportunity knocks, almost always when markets are more uncertain than normal and when market volatility is high, not low. Your highest returning investments will almost always come from those investments you make during economic slowdowns or recessions, not during economic boom times.

Now that the S&P500 has joined the Nasdaq and has officially entered a bear market, should you raise cash? Or, now that Asset manager positioning, which is contrarian bullish, is beginning to flash a buy signal not seen since 2016 and 2011, should you marginally add to your investment holdings if you can.

Retirees and many others nearing retirement, love dividend stocks because they can help provide current reoccurring income through their cash distributions. Many investors gravitate toward owning some publicly-traded REITs or Real Estate Investment Trusts.

At Oak Harvest, we think our clients are best served by us helping them with their future needs and risks, instead of dwelling on the past. Our forecasting is far from perfect, but we like to keep you up on what it's saying about the uncertain future, not rehashing an already certain past.

Stock Talk is a weekly podcast dedicated to discussing the Investment Team's perspective on what's happening in the market. Hosted by Chief Investment Officer Chris Perras, each episode brings you our views on stocks, the market, and the economy — with a little Education thrown in for good measure. Listen each week and help stay connected to your money! Also available on Spotify, Google Play and Podbean.

Do you have a retirement plan that goes beyond allocating funds to truly fit your needs? We can help you create a retirement life plan customized for your retirement vision and legacy. Call us at: (877) 896-0040

REITS-the Real deal about Real Estate Trusts | Stock Talk Podcast

REITS-the Real deal about Real Estate Trusts | Stock Talk Podcast

June 24, 2022

We first covered the topic of REIT investing, or real estate investment trusts, a little over two years ago, right after the March 2020 Covid market fall. Given our recent News or Noise video on “dividends matter,” I wanted to take this video as an opportunity to walk you through REIT investing and what you should and should not be looking for if you are out there picking your own stocks and searching for dividends.

Should You Buy Into SuperCycles in the Stock Market | Stock Talk Podcast

Should You Buy Into SuperCycles in the Stock Market | Stock Talk Podcast

June 17, 2022

Why analysts and the financial press love the term "super-cycle," I can only guess. I guess it is used to relay the idea that you can buy anything in the group or industry at any time and you'll make money. It's most commonly used when referring to commodities, but over the last 20 years, it has made its way into the general lexicon of virtually every S&P500 sector. Remember the semiconductor "super-cycle"? Or the biopharma "super-cycle"? How about the "fertilizer" super-cycle? I recall hearing on TV from several food analysts that "People have to eat." Did you forget about the "agriculture" super-cycle? Or the plant-based protein "super-cycle? The "EV," electric vehicle super-cycle? I could list another 5 or 10 I've heard about in the last ten years, and guess what? None of them were very "super" by the time that term was thrown around to describe them in public equity markets.

Taper Tantrum 2.0 | Stock Talk Podcast

June 10, 2022

On June 1st, The Federal Reserve officially began its second try this decade at "Quantitative Tightening" programs. This is also referred to as "QT." Recently, a lot of noise has been made that this might be disastrous for the financial markets over the next 6 to 12 months. The first time the Fed went down this path was in 2013 and 2014.

We want to review the specifics of the current QT timeline and refresh investors memories on what happened when the Fed went down this path nearly a decade ago. Call this video Taper Tantrum 2.0 and what it might mean for your portfolio; historically, it's not what you think.

Your Recession Guide For 2022

Your Recession Guide For 2022

June 3, 2022

Almost exactly a month ago, our team released a “News or Noise” YouTube video titled “Negative first quarter 2021 GDP Growth, Is a recession coming?” We did this video because on April 29th, the Commerce Department, which is the government agency that calculates this data, released first-quarter real GDP growth figures saying our economy actually shrunk by -1.4% in the first quarter, versus economist expectations of a positive +1%. We figured that this would kick off the non-stop media discussion of whether we would have a recession in 2022 or 2023 or ever again.

Summer Slowdown | Stock Talk Podcast

Summer Slowdown | Stock Talk Podcast

May 27, 2022

Two weeks ago, our weekly podcast was titled “nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide”. In it, we discussed the fallacy behind the notion of “hiding out” or trying to “hide out” in certain stocks or sectors during market corrections, bear markets or general economic slowdowns. We argued against the notion that there is “always a bull market out there” as discussed on TV by a few hosts. Unless you are running a hedge fund, that’s generally not how the markets or portfolio management works for the masses or most institutions. Click here to learn more!

The it is buying a stock based on valuation or it being “cheap” only to be massively disappointed by its stock returns going forward. The subject of this week’s podcast? Is that a value stock?

Will There Be A Second Quarter Rally?  Stock Talk Podcast

Will There Be A Second Quarter Rally? Stock Talk Podcast

April 29, 2022

We continue to expect more volatility in the upcoming second and third quarters, around which we are likely to make moves around the edges when we find value in single stocks or sectors. For now, our work continues to show us in a corrective period in both price and time. We continue to believe this should end later in the 3rd quarter, and then the overall market resumes the ongoing bull market in the 4th quarter of 2022 through the first half of 2023.
