There’s trouble on the horizon for the stock market in 2021.This year is a particularly bad time to have your money tied up in the stock market. On today’s show, you’re going to learn why, and what to do instead of investing in stocks.
On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m showing you the data and explaining why you should invest elsewhere. We’re sitting on one of the overvalued, speculative stock markets of all time. It’s no secret that the pandemic has had lasting effects on our economy. You’re going to learn three key reasons that show the market is artificially inflated.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- Three key indicators that show the market is inflated.
- What to do instead of investing in the stock market.
- And much more!
Three Key Indicators That Show the Market Is Inflated
- The Buffett Indicator: The Buffett Indicator looks at overvaluations in the stock market. Based on the historical ratio, the Buffett Indicator shows the stock market is currently 184.2% over GDP. The Buffett Indicator says that if you invest in stocks, you can expect a NEGATIVE return of 3.3% per year.
- Corporate Debt: Corporate debt is a huge indicator of a company’s viability in the future. If you dig deep enough, you can see that a lot of these companies are borrowing from the Federal Reserve. They’re buying shares, and artificially inflating the value of their stocks. These are fake valuations.
- The Federal Reserve: At some point, the Federal Reserve will have to stop buying corporate debt and junk bonds. If you look at their balance sheets, the debt keeps growing. They can’t continue to print money without inflation.
What To Do Instead of Investing in the Stock Market
So what’s a smart investor to do? Take a long, hard look at the stocks you own. If you’re not happy with their true performance, I suggest looking elsewhere for investments. Take the money out of the speculative market, and instead take control into your own hands. Consider investing in a self-directed account and let your money work for you.
