Curious what your opinion and thoughts are of BTU now after its come out of bankruptcy...???

It's still too weak fundamentally. Obama beat up the whole industry too much. It will take them a long while to strengthen.

So glad you are back Sean. Been a silent follower for years up here in NH and looked forward each week to your UWR videos. Still holding my portfolio and waiting for guidance!

Welcome back, Sean...

Thanks BobT, I appreciate that. Yes, in that portfolio, there's nothing near sell signals at this point. Many emerging market positions have soared a lot lately. So if one were up an unusual amount, they could choose to take some profits there. But those are undervalued areas of the market and where money continues to flow.

TaosJeo, I sure do appreciate that!

Sean, welcome back. I am still holding many positions from your UWR portfolio and some of the Legacy portfolio as well. When you left, I was up over 20% but the last couple of months have been devastating and I am up 7% now. I have put a stop trailing loss of 18% on all my positions and TECK and DO have sold in the last couple of weeks. I made some money on TECK but I lost about 50% on DO which I was really hoping would make a comeback because it had been so close to its 52 week low. Any advice? I'm starting to panic a little bit without your weekly guidance. Glad to have you back.

Oil is having its first major pullback within its uptrend that started when oil bottomed at $26 per barrel. So that's pulled back oil stocks with it. Commodity-stocks will always be volatile both on the upside with their huge gains and in their percentage pullbacks. It's their nature. DO is likely towards the latter stages of wave C.

Great to see you back...congrats on the new gig. What're your thoughts on RIG and DO? Will they follow your thoughts on oil - watched your oil video before writing this?

Two questions:

Artlynch

1)Do you have different levels of membership (ie. basic; premium?

shmcc2000
shmcc2000

Right now, the free area is being developed. And in the coming months, the premium, subscriber-based part of the site will be fully set-up and that's where the buy/sell recommendations will be, the weekly video and monthly newsletter, etc.

Artlynch

2)Can we get advice on securities bought on your recommendation when I had a subscription to another newsletter you managed?

shmcc2000
shmcc2000

rlfroehlich, they'll likely trail oil's overall uptrend over time. But our "best buys" are the ones to average down on and the others are a hold. That's my opinion.

shmcc2000
shmcc2000

Artlynch, yes, I'll be making a video and questions can be asked about them as well.

Will there be a forum where one can get your take on an existing portfolio?

cmwnl, those are towards the end of my former newsletter, The Ultimate Wealth Report.

shmcc2000

Yes, I'll be makimg a video about the former positions soon.

That video will be in the Premium section of the site soon. Also, check out the launch video. It will address all sorts of questions.

Hey Sean, will you be doing anything with options when you launch the premium section?

shmcc2000
shmcc2000

No, because most people need a fully diversified stock portfolio before moving on to options trading. However, I have written a book on the topic that comes with six trading strategies. You can find that book, here: https://www.themaven.net/seanhyman/pages/sBjLHde2_kqUGwhTz8NXwQ

Sean..I am still invested in your UW stocks. Should I be selling them?

Sean Hyman

The short answer is, no. Shortly, I'll be making a video about positions held in my former newsletters.

The video is now available under the Premium tab. Just click on that and you'll see the video there.

I'm also holding UW and AP stocks and plan to check out the video you mention (under the "Premium" tab). So glad to have found you again. I've missed your weekly UW and AP videos.

Hi Sean. Are there any of the positions in the Ultimate Wealth list that were active when you left that you would recommend to be sold now in anticipation of purchasing positions in your new program?

Sean Hyman
Sean Hyman

Watch the latest video that I did in the Premium section. There are no official sells but the ones that are charging to the upside right now are the emerging market ETFs.

Are IBM and Qualcomm still good to average into?

I'm now 70 should I keep investing like I have been in the UW portfolio? I Don't need all the retirement I get now, but what I get in my state retirement will never increase so investments will have to pick up the slack in the future. More div stocks???

Sean Hyman
Sean Hyman

That's up to you. But you do want stocks like I picked there: Huge companies, large market share, lots of cash, low debt, and a nice dividend yield where it can be found too. And always keep some cash set aside for new stocks and for averaging down or market corrections.

Sean, watched your video update for the former UWR investments which I believe you did on June 26. When will you do another update for those investments and how often will you do them?

Sean Hyman

Since this is a completely new site with a completely different newsletter, I made a video for former UWR and AP subscribers so that you'd know the ultimate targets I expect those stocks to get to. I won't be able to run three portfolios at the new site (UWR, AP and the Logical Investor). That will only confuse. So there may be occasional videos for former UWR and AP subscribers. But I don't ultimately control those portfolios anymore. The other publisher and it's editors do. However, I don't agree with their approach or one word they've said about the portfolios either, which is why I made the videos for you. That way, you'll know the ultimate projections that I have for those stocks which will give you the direction you need concerning those stocks. Keep in mind, some of those stocks may end up in the Logical Investor portfolio that will be started likely within the next month or two, once the publisher has the subscription side of the site up.

Keep this in mind: You'll still be able to ask questions about the previous portfolios in the Premium section that I've set up.

Hi Sean, What do you think about buying UDN? If you think it is a good buy, how will I know when to sell?

shmcc2000
shmcc2000

Editor

Personally, I'm not much of a fan of UDN. I'd rather be in things that have more trading volume and benefit from the dollar's fall, like GLD or FXE, etc. which have very high inverse correlations to the dollar, over time. But there's nothing wrong with UDN. I'm just not a big fan of it because of its low trading volume.
