Screen Shot 2013-06-21 at 11.49.09 AMBased on the success of the newsletters, founding principals Nick Atkeson and Andrew Houghton were approached by McGraw Hill Education to write a book on investing and wrote Win By Not Losing: A Disciplined Approach to Building and Protecting Your Wealth in the Stock Market by Managing Your Risk in 2013. The first part of Win By Not Losing is a collection of stories of investors who share their successes and the second part is an actionable strategy for avoiding major down markets. One reviewer wrote;”I have worked in the industry for a number of years now and this may be the most useful book I’ve read.” Click here to order your copy today.

RecessionPredicting a Recession – Avoiding Major Loss – LEI and the Yield Curve

The Leading Economic Index (LEI) and the U.S. Treasury Yield Curve have been accurate predictors of recessions. This is important because:
1. Major stock market pull-backs (-40% or greater) that require years to recover occur during recessions.
2. As stock investors, we would like to reduce exposure to stocks in advance of major pull-backs.
3. If we can reliably predict when the next recession will be, we will be alerted to an elevated risk of an impending major bear market.
