The ‘Esquire Man’ Is Dead. Long Live the ‘Esquire Man.’

To that pocket-square-wearing, sidecar-sipping human known as the “Esquire man,” this was life as it was intended to be: a roomful of wags in natty suits throwing back cocktails and trading banter in one of Manhattan’s hottest restaurants, as willowy models and square-jawed movie stars circled the …

Thoughts on Oil – Where to from here, the impacts and the why.

G’day,<p>Let us start with the current situation. In a nutshell Crude Oil has gone from $100 to $50 in a few months.<p>The first, most crucial, thing to say is that the price drop is not as a result of some sudden, unexpended drop in demand, which should send alarm bells into the global economy. This can and has happened, for example in the GFC.<p>This is crucial because it therefore does not signal an impending collapse in global stock markets and the global economy as a whole.<p>The drop in crude is …

My Shocking Predictions for 2015 – Aussie Property goes up – Europe / China fall apart.

Aussie real estate goes up. I continue to think Australian property is a great investment.<p>Not because it’s cheap (it’s not) but because money is cheap and Aussie property is security – well it is to the Chinese and others who want security.<br>• Canada is now being stricter on international property investors so where is an alternative. And it’s not about price for them.<br>• Positive yield. Do yourself a favour and lock in for as long as possible on a cash flow positive property. Then hold for the long …

Bullish but protect yourself!

G'day…<p>I wrote this article last week on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20140808095921-144273413-key-charts-30-fall-in-stocks<p>Yes I am long-term bullish but I do see a fall of up to around 30% coming. And yes I do think its unlikely to drop that much but that is my worst case scenario right now. If the US drops the Aussie markets will get hit much worst as they nearly always do. The article uses this chart I created on Bloomberg to show you some of the levels and last Friday that …

2nd of 2 recent LinkedIn Posts from me: Key Charts: 30% fall in stocks?

G'day…<p>I have written a lot that I am long term bullish in stocks - this market reminds me a lot of the 1920’s and I have written about that in May here: http://scottgoold.tumblr.com/post/86473864667/the-5-year-boom-for-stocks.<p>That period shows stocks can go straight up for 5 years (in a move where the market more than tripled the biggest pullback was less than 20%).<p>I also have written that <b>we are in a danger period</b> and could see a pullback in this secular bull market - that could shake many …

So now it’s clear that the majority of the Fed wants to keep rates low longer. This is very bullish for stocks.<p>2 - A front-page …

It's a new bull market - historical perspective

G'day…<p>Secular bull and bear markets both typically last over 18 years. The last secular bull was 1982 - 2000… so as nothing is happening in the markets I thought it was important for a quick historical perspective and a couple of lessons.<p>Here we have the S&P500 with the October 72 peak (remember October is the risky month for crashes) through to 1985… well into the start of that 18 year bull market (from Yahoo! Finance):<p>Note: the market made new highs above 72 in Mid 1980… things looked great …
