The best time to buy REITs is now (even if you think otherwise)

People are avoiding REITs, and many said they wouldn’t touch them with a ten-foot-long pole. It is interesting to see the irrational behavior of people not experienced in investing. For example, in 2021, when Realty Income (O) was trading at $70 a share, everybody was rushing in and buying. Everybody was claiming to be a Continue reading →

Markets down supposedly waiting for NVDA

Media are spinning their narratives telling us what they think (usually after the fact) what is going on.

Technical view: 3M Company (MMM)

Technical view: Amazon, Inc. (AMZN)

  AMZN is in stage #2. The stock is recovering from last year’s carnage. In 2022 it almost reached lows from 2020 Covid lows. It was a great buying opportunity. But for the entire 2023 it was rallying and erasing the losses. If you were bold enough to buy when everyone else was panicking, you Continue reading →

Technical view: Aflac Incorporated (AFL)

  AFL is in stage #2. The stock performed very well during the bear market. We had a decline but it recovered very nice and it wasn’t as deep as what we saw in 2020. Today, the stock is also pulling back from a strong rally which may provide a good opportunity.
