Well it’s been a long time since we published a new post in the safe investment guide. This is mainly since we were quite busy with restructuring our portfolio into a both more solid and more aggressive at the same time.
Many have asked us how can a portfolio be more aggressive and more solid at the same time and our answer is split to several parts. Continue reading Are there any safe investments for 2012 and 2013?
We are in may 2012, and as the old saying goes, we’d sold a major portion of our stocks, ETFs, pension funds and liquidized them 2 months ago.
At the time we were quite sorry as we’ve seen the markets went on the rise, but since then went all the way back to their March values.
As we see there are two options: the first and more optimistic one (at least for the short term) is a rising wave which will carry the S&P to 1450 – 1500 points, and will end a rising cycle of 3 years (starting from 2009).

As a result we have liquefied 50% of the overall stock holdings we’ve had, and waiting for a correction in price.
Note that this is true for the US stock market, which is stressed tightly, as it did not have a major correction for a couple of months. However, for other markets, such as EMEA and APAC, as they haven’t reached their highs from May 2011, we do not expect them to rise back strongly.
