It’s More Like 2011 than 2014
The Truth Behind Vanguard’s Warning to Advisors
We recently received a reminder of just how volatile the market can be. The 1,000-point Dow drop was certainly a shocking event, and industry titan Vanguard claims this could be the start of a “lower growth world.” If only that were the case...
One leading market advisor -- a man with nearly four decades of market timing experience -- is now predicting that this could be the sign of much worse things to come.

The latest bout of selling in equity markets has been compared to the big drop below the 200-day moving average that occurred in October 2014.
While the 2014 breakdown was similar to what’s happened this year in terms of its rapid descent, looking at the big picture, the current decline appears to me to be more like what happened in 2011 than what happened in 2014.
The chart below of the S&P 500 index over the past five years tells the story nicely.
Here we see that in 2014, we had what’s called a “V-shaped” bottom in stocks. There was a sharp breakdown below the 200-day moving average (blue line) and then a subsequent swift move back above the 200-day moving average (MA) that kept stocks grinding higher until this July.
In 2011, we had a swift breakdown below the 200-day MA in August, but the difference between 2011 and 2014 is that the market stayed well below the 200-day MA for most of the rest of the year.
In fact, it took Federal Reserve quantitative easing (QE) to kick buyers back into the market and to send stocks back above their long-term trend line.
I suspect that we are in the same situation now as we were back in 2011. This is not going to be a 2014 “V-shaped” bottom. Rather, I think we are in for a tough slog through the remainder of the year.
The big difference between this year and 2011 is that the Fed is on the verge of hiking interest rates this year, not easing up the way it did four years ago.
We won’t know what actually happens with the Fed until the Sept. 17 decision is announced, but what I think we can say with supreme confidence is that this market is in for more volatility until then.
If you are a serious ETF investor that wants to get positioned for the current volatility, you need my Successful ETF Investing advisory service. My subscribers have remained calm, and in the safety of cash, throughout the past several volatile weeks of selling.

No Company has Done this Since the 1970s
Four decades ago, a special regulation -- well, more of a restriction -- was imposed on an industry with sky-high profit potential. Ever since then, American companies have been trying to find a loophole with no success… until now.
A single company has become one of the most profitable in America by discovering a way to sidestep this old rule. In fact, they stand to make hundreds of millions of dollars starting this year. By clicking here now, you’ll learn their ticker symbol, their unique situation and how to play it for huge gains in 2015.

ETF Talk: Selective Dividend-Focused ETF
This ETF Talk rounds out the category of the top-performing domestic dividend-paying exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for the first half of 2015 with Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF (SYLD).
View the current price, volume, performance and top 10 holdings of SYLD at ETFU.com.
This fund’s strategy for selecting companies in which to invest is threefold. SYLD focuses on companies that pay high dividends, repurchase their own shares (thereby driving up share prices by reducing the total number available) and pay down debt to improve their balance sheets. This three-part process results in a carefully selected portfolio of 100 stocks with strong free cash flow.
The fund gained 0.32% during the first-half of 2015, after pulling back in Q2. Though SYLD rose only slightly, the first two quarters of 2015 were difficult for the market, and any gain during that time is a show of strength.
In addition, this gain does not include its 1.5% annual dividend yield. This relatively new fund, created in 2013, already has about $225 million in assets.
As the chart below shows, outside of the large, recent, broad-market dip, this fund’s price has not suffered harsh setbacks. It actually remained fairly stable between March and August when the market slipped.
The fund also offers diversification, since just 13.83% of its assets are invested in its top 10 largest positions. Among them are O’Reilly Automotive Inc. (ORLY), 1.60%; CVS Health Corp. (CVS), 1.42%; Reynolds American Inc. (RAI), 1.42%; Lowe’s Companies Inc. (LOW), 1.41%; and Home Depot Inc. (HD), 1.39%.
If SYLD’s performance and shareholder-yield-based approach look like a winning combination, you may want to have some shares of Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF (SYLD) in your portfolio.
Remember to look for the current price, volume, performance and top 10 holdings of SYLD at ETFU.com.

It Must Be Labor Day…
“If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend.”
-- Doug Larson
It’s Labor Day weekend, and if you are planning a road trip with friends and family, you’re not alone. Some estimates I’ve read say there is going to be record road travel this weekend, which is largely a consequence of the lowest gas prices at this time of year in more than a decade. And while taking that road trip can be fun, it’s important to remember to be safe, stay calm -- and to not let the stress of the road get the best of you.
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. Ask Doug.
In case you missed it, I encourage you to read my e-letter column from last week on Eagle Daily Investor about why bad things happen under the 200-day moving average. I also invite you to comment in the space provided below my Eagle Daily Investor commentary.
