I’m about to start celebrating one of my favorite holidays. But before we dig into the subject of the day, I’d like to wish you and yours a very happy Fourth of July.

With all of the global unrest, terror threats, economic uncertainties, etc., we have to deal with, it’s important to remember just how lucky we are to be living right now, in the safest, richest and still the freest country ever created.

This week, I thought we’d take a look back at the first half of the year, as it has been one marked by a lot of big price swings, a lot of buying in safe-haven assets, and a lot of buying in stocks.

Check out the list here of some of the markets I monitor each day. Here you’ll find the performance data for each respective index, year to date through June 30.
  • S&P 500         2.69%
  • Dow                2.90%
  • Nasdaq           -3.29%
  • Nasdaq 100    -3.86%
  • Gold                24.65%
  • Silver              35.44%
  • Treasuries      15.19%
Although there was a decent move higher in large-cap domestic stocks, tech and large-cap tech struggled through the first half of the year. And while stocks generally experienced a back-and-forth first half, it was a different story entirely with safe-haven assets such as gold, silver and long-term U.S. Treasury bonds.

WETF1

Gold and silver have shined so far in 2016, easily outpacing equities. More significantly, Treasury bonds also outpaced stocks by a wide margin.

WETF2

It is this boost in Treasury bond prices, one that has pushed bond yields down to record lows on the 10-year Treasury note, that has me feeling more than a bit uncomfortable.

WETF3

The reason why is because bond yields should not be falling so low when stock prices also are pushing up toward all-time highs. At some point, something has to give. If history is any harbinger of things to come, the bond market will win out over stocks.

In a year that’s been fraught with some big bouts of selling, as well as some big buying, we now are at a place where we expect more volatility to continue.

Election uncertainty, Brexit outcome uncertainty, Fed uncertainty and the like all will help determine what’s next for markets.

And while we can’t be certain of what’s going to happen, we can be reasonably sure that the markets are going to throw us at least a few curveballs along the way.

The only thing we can do, as investors, is to stay in the batter’s box and keep our eyes on the ball.


Why Isn’t the Media Reporting on this Financial Ticking Time-Bomb?

There is an unprecedented “Trigger Event” set to occur in 2016 that could completely change our financial system as we know it… yet it’s the biggest UNREPORTED story in the mainstream media. Typically, during an election year, this sort of news is swept under the rug. But this time, the story will just be too big to ignore.

So if you’re concerned about your wealth, your family and your ability to receive Social Security and other benefits you’ve earned, then you’ll want to see the research I’ve compiled. Click here now to see my newest research.

ETF Talk: A New Breed of Income-Driven Dividend Funds

Starting this week, we begin a new series about exchange-traded funds that will focus on income-driven dividend funds. Today’s featured ETF is O'Shares FTSE US Quality Dividend ETF (OUSA), a U.S. fund with total net assets of $209.98 million.

Income-driven dividend funds typically focus on tracking companies that are regular dividend payers, based on certain criteria that vary from fund to fund. OUSA specifically gives investors access to large- and mid-cap U.S. issuers, which are selected based on quality, low volatility and dividend yield.

The high quality and low volatility requirements are designed to cut risk by reducing exposure to companies that may possess high dividend payouts but have endured large price declines.

Since its launch on July 14, 2015, OUSA’s share price has gone up 9.34% to notch a decent gain. Its year-to-date gain of 7.92% significantly outperforms the S&P 500’s 1.79% rise. OUSA has a dividend yield of 2.30%, and its expense ratio is 0.48%. OUSA has shown a fairly stable upward trend in its share price, starting in 2016, based on the chart below.

WETF4

You likely will recognize most of the top holdings of OUSA. They include Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), 5.37%; Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), 5.33%; Verizon Communications (VZ), 4.40%; AT&T (T), 4.29%; and Procter & Gamble (PG), 3.46%.

The fund is fairly diversified, since it holds more than 140 companies in its portfolio. Its top 10 holdings comprise only 37.81% of the fund.

If you are interested in investing in a relatively stable income-driven fund with some of the biggest dividend-paying company names in its portfolio, I encourage you to look into O'Shares FTSE US Quality Dividend ETF (OUSA).

On Ambition and Patriots

“The same ambition can destroy or save, and make a patriot as it makes a knave.”

-- Alexander Pope

The ambition for freedom, liberty and sovereignty is what fueled the birth of our nation. Yet ambition to achieve a goal can sometimes be toxic, especially if the ends are not sound. Whatever you focus your ambition on, make sure it’s a goal worthy of your life’s blood -- because in the end, we are all just what we’ve done.
