Living in Toronto, the hot topic last Friday around the water cooler was what went down in the nation's capital the day before. Most conversations I had with Canadian colleagues on Friday, other than the chit-chats about everyone's plans for the Victoria Day long weekend, centered around Prime…

You have to give credit where credit is due. Treasury Secretary John Snow is doing a great job harping away about one of the most important financial issues facing the world. As you read about in a different perspective in Meg Jackson's commentary on Tuesday, China's currency, known…

Last Wednesday, May 11, 2005, China's People's Daily newspaper reported that the Central Bank planned to revalue the Yuan on May 18, 2005. Speculators around the world applauded the news. Some predicted the Yuan would increase in value by 40% or more, and initiated strong buying in the…

By now, I'm sure you've heard the dismal job report: Only 112,000 new U.S. jobs were created in November -- far below the 200,000 new jobs analysts had been expecting. Combine November's weak job growth with a soft pre- Christmas retail market and slowing U.S. factory growth and…

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 162 points yesterday. And while this big-cap stock index is still down from its high of the year, and well down from its all time-high of about five years ago, the index has been experiencing a respectable rally since late October. While…

In my last two Profit Confidential commentaries, I made up a make-believe dialogue between President Bush and Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan on how they dealt with the tech- bubble that burst in early 2000. In "How It All Started," I talked about how U.S. interest rates were lowered…

Crown Media hit a pothole and my readers took the smooth road to a 91% profit. Texas Instruments recently plunged and my readers made a fast 45% profit on the fall. JetBlue Airways was flying high, then news of rising oil prices sent the stock back to the…

As of this morning, the U.S. dollar has fallen to record 10-year lows against the major foreign currencies--and investors are making a fortune on our dollar's currency collapse. I've extensively written about why the U.S. dollar is declining against other world currencies and why I believe the trend…

There's a number I'd like you to keep in mind. That number is 77 and it's important for a reason. Take all the factories in America that make something... anything for that matter. Put them all together and you'll find that, as a group, they are working at…

Spending time with friends who are either businesspeople or investors is a favorite pastime for me. I find it so interesting getting different views on where people believe the economy is going and where they are investing their own money. When I first started telling people three years…

If there is one key factor the U.S. has going for it... if there is one plan Greenspan has that is working... it's the gradual devaluation of the U.S. dollar against other world currencies. I've been writing for some time now about "Greenspan's quiet plan" to devalue the…

Imagine waking up one morning to this news headline: "Iraq stops exportation of oil indefinitely... prices top $100 a barrel!" Could it happen? Yes, it could. In fact, just two days ago, on August 30, 2004, officials at Iraq's state-run oil company told the Associated Press that oil…

My loyal readers are aware of my general negative position on the U.S. dollar. In a nutshell, I believe higher interest rates will eventually make it difficult for U.S. governments to satisfy their debts, causing foreign U.S. bond creditors to eventually shy away from U.S. dollars. With the…

In today's commentary, I offer several arguments on why I expect the price of gold to continue to rise from its current level and why I believe money will flow into gold. Who owns the most gold right now? While it may come as a surprise, according to…

You've probably heard the news about the 1905 Picasso painting "Boy With a Pipe," which sold at Sotheby's for $104 million last week--a record for a painting sold at auction. I guess the painting was bought by a Man With Lots of Dollars. Funny thing is, when it…

After declining against world currencies during 2003 and the first few months of 2004, the U.S. dollar has taken flight. Why has the Greenback started rising in value and how will this play out for investors? The rise in the value of the U.S. dollar in the past…

Some of the most frequent questions I'm asked of late are directed towards interest rates: Where are rates headed? Should I lock in my mortgage or keep it variable? Predicting interest rate movements is much easier now than it was ten years ago. Congressional testimony by Greenspan, hundreds…
