I'm Not Buying Markets Making All-Time Highs

The American stock markets are at all-time highs, the Japanese market is 50 percent below its all-time high so I own Japan, I own China,  I own Russia, I own things that are depressed on the idea that if things do get better these markets will catch up and if they don't get better at least I'm not going to get destroyed in some of these markets making all-time highs.

How I Invested In A Graphene Start-Up

Graphene, according to scientists, is going to be as important to the world as scientists. I did not say that, but scientists say it. It is thinner than paper and stronger than steel and they can even use it to purify salt water. I have been bullish on graphene for a long time, and all of a sudden an entrepreneur in this space shows up, he has been in this business for a while, and therefore I put in some small amount of money.

Jim Rogers: Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPLE), Netflix (NFLX), Google (GOOG) Will Eventually Crack

In a recent interview, Jim Rogers drew a parallel between the FANG stocks (Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GGOG)) and the Nifty 50, a group of stocks that kept rallying in the seventies when the general bull market in stocks was about to end. The Nifty 50 included stocks like Coca-Cola (KO), General Electric (GE) and International Bussiness Machines (IBM).

Jim Rogers noted that these high momentum, big cap Nasdaq stocks are currently holding the indexes but that they will eventually crack: 

“Everything else stopped going up but those Nifty 50, which would be something like the FANGs today, or maybe in the late ‘90s [during the dot com bubble], some of the other kinds of stocks. So this has happened before in market history. They eventually crack, there’s no question.”

Jim Rogers: My Thoughs On Bitcoin

I'm not sure you should ask me because I have never bought one Bitcoin. If I were smart, I would have bought them nine years ago, seven years ago, five years ago or even five months ago. So I don't know. If I just showed you charts of what's going on and described without telling you which country or which time periods, you would say "Oh, that looks like a bubble, sounds like a bubble." It does! But don't ask me because I missed the whole thing.
