Trump Wins and Investors Follow the Herd
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.

The best part is that you can secure this extra income without investing in risky bonds, annuities, MLPs, REITs or dividend stocks. In fact, this income strategy is considered so secure, the IRS even allows you to use it in your IRA accounts.

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.

Here comes President Donald J. Trump.

Now that’s something you don’t see every day.

By now, the world knows all about the remarkable election results. To say that most so-called “experts” were wrong about the outcome is to be as generous as one can possibly be.

This is especially true of so many so-called market experts, most of whom had predicted a Hillary Clinton victory and probably invested accordingly.

We know that because of how the markets reacted on election night, especially as it was growing increasingly clear that Donald Trump could actually become the 45th U.S. president. I was watching the futures markets that night, and at one point the Dow futures were down more than 800 points. That shows traders were betting on markets falling hard on the Trump win.

Well, once again, the experts were wrong. On Wednesday, stocks opened somewhat erratically. But by mid-morning, there was a decided bid higher in the markets. That bid was driven by money flows into what I call “Trump-win” sectors. Those sectors are the ones likely to do well because of President Trump’s policies.

This rotation was even more pronounced given the fact that Republicans hold control of both the House and the Senate. The all-Republican executive and legislative branches mean that President Trump will be able to pass legislation he and the Republicans in Congress want, and that means he can enact proposals such as more infrastructure spending, corporate and personal tax cuts, removal of onerous regulations on business, increased defense spending, etc.

Wall Street liked that possibility, and on Thursday the big rally continued. The chart here of the Dow over the past five days tells you all you need to know about the initial feelings toward the election results.

This outcome was the exact opposite of what many thought would happen.

Last week, I read multiple research reports predicting a Clinton victory, and a rebound in the markets once certainty returned to Wall Street. These same reports warned that if Trump somehow pulled off a miracle upset win, then stocks would plunge, gold would surge and bond prices would spike.

The reality here could not have been more wrong.

Stocks surged after Trump's win, gold prices fell and bond yields spiked. So much for the conventional wisdom.

One reason the markets have done so well over the past several days is due to the phenomenon of behavioral economics. This is when a group of actors (such as investors) behave along with one another and thereby fuel the action and/or result in a particular direction.

In this case, investors ran to sectors such as financials, biotech, infrastructure, defense, etc. While I understand this happens all the time on Wall Street, I caution you not to fall into this trap. What you don’t want to do is chase sectors, so I recommend not trying to ride the gains of the past two days in biotech, financials and other sectors on this immediate post-Trump-win boost.

Sure, if you were lucky enough to have owned these sectors before their big, respective moves, then congratulations. But if you try to pile in now, well, that’s likely to result in something I call “bad trade location,” and I recommend you avoid putting yourself in that position.

Of course, the Trump administration and the Republican Congress will mean new opportunities for investors. But if you succumb to the temptation to jump on a short-term buying wave, you just might see that wave fold in on you quicker than you think.

If you’d like to get in on the uptrends that are just starting to break out and avoid those that are destined to bring you to a bad trade location, then I invite you to subscribe to my Successful ETF Investing advisory service, today.

The Question Everyone is Asking…

“When is the next bear market… and how bad will it be?” We’re certainly due for one, since the longest Wall Street has ever gone between major bear market corrections has been about eight years. You don’t need to be a math whiz to realize that the next one could start any day now!

And if the market goes down 50%, can you wait another 7 years (at least) to get back to just breaking even? Not many people can, which is why one analyst has been using his proprietary software system to pinpoint the exact moves to make, and the time to do so, for years.

ETF Talk: Fund Offers Exposure to Africa

As we round out our list of regional emerging markets exchange-traded funds (ETFs), this article features VanEck Vectors Africa Index ETF (AFK), a fund that tracks many Africa-based companies and invests most of its $68 million total assets in those companies.

Africa likely is a relatively untapped region for most investors, even though it offers vast commodity resources and growth potential. In fact, as far as ETFs go, AFK is almost the sole choice for broad, pure-play African coverage.

ARK offers one-stop access to a broad range of sectors and African countries, including exposure to some less traditional markets. The fund screens both local listings of companies that are incorporated in Africa, as well as companies outside of Africa that generate at least 50% of their revenues within that continent.

AFK’s index focuses on Gross Domestic Product (GDP), rather than market cap like many other emerging market ETFs. This puts an emphasis on the economic well-being of the country where a selected company is based. As a result, small- and medium-capitalization public companies often are included in the fund.

Year to date, AFK has enjoyed moderate success, with an 11.91% return versus the S&P 500’s 5.48%. Even though the fund is diversified, in the sense that it stretches over many sectors and firms, it is considered relatively high-risk due to the large number of small and medium caps in its holdings and the less politically stable nature of Africa compared to other regions. As you can see in the following chart, the fund has managed a small positive overall trend, but not without frequent ups and downs. AFK has a dividend yield of 1.89% and an expense ratio of 0.79%.

View the current price, volume, performance and top 10 holdings of AFK at ETFU.com.

The fund’s top five holdings are: Commercial International Bank (Egypt) SAE GDR, 7.92%; Naspers Ltd Class N, 7.42%; Guaranty Trust Bank PLC, 5.21%; Nigerian Breweries PLC, 4.65%; and Safaricom Ltd, 4.20%. AFK has 37.5% of its assets in the financial sector, 14.6% in materials, 11.7% in telecommunication services and 12% in consumer luxury goods. All of these sectors could flourish with strong growth of Africa’s economies.

If you want one-stop access to growing Africa-based companies and you believe in the strength of African economies in the long-run, consider looking into VanEck Vectors Africa Index ETF (AFK) as a possible future addition to your portfolio.

The Most Dangerous Time for Your Retirement

Most Americans will be totally blindsided by this barrage of last-minute rule changes, tax increases and regulations… but you can fight back.

One of America’s leading experts on retirement has prepared a special video presentation that shows the true nature of these new threats. Click here immediately to learn the simple moves you can make to protect the nest egg you’ve worked so hard for.

Wisdom for Trump

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.”

-- Aristotle

It might be presumptuous of me to offer advice to the president-elect, but the wisdom here from Aristotle applies to all humans. In a job that will no doubt test the limits of human will, it is wise to have control over your own desires and impulses. If you can achieve this, the country is likely to be the real victor.

Wisdom about money, investing and life can be found anywhere. If you have a good quote you’d like me to share with your fellow readers, send it to me, along with any comments, questions and suggestions you have about my audio podcast, newsletters, seminars or anything else. Click here to ask Doug.

In case you missed it, I encourage you to read my e-letter column from last week about what I felt the best way to invest after the election would be.
All the best,
Doug Fabian
