A thread of good things that are being framed as bad things, but could actually be good things.

Many things that push stocks up or down can't be painted with a good or bad brush.

There's a lot of grey, and most of it is up to the crowd's interpretation.

But lemme tell you: there are a few factors out there that I think are getting a bad rap.

Yields are rising quickly.

Sure, higher yields can = a higher discount rate, and quickly rising yields can derail the stock market (like we’ve seen before).

Feeling a little lost in the market noise these days?

Not sure what to do with your money?

Scared of taking the plunge into investing?

I’ve got you, fam 👊

Here are five basic investing principles that can get you out of the rut and back to your best (money) self.


Scared of the future? Thinking of pushing off this whole “investing” deal until things calm down?

I’ve got news for you.

Nobody knows what the future holds. Not even Wall Street.

(Sorry, even I don’t have a crystal ball)

Still, there can be value in investing, even if you don’t know what the future holds and things don't calm down for a while.

You just need to be patient.

Bond yields are rising fast and investors are getting nervous.

So what’s the big deal?

Let’s talk about it.
BTW, yields 101:

Yields rise when bond prices fall. So as people buy bonds, yields fall.

Got it? OK, let’s do this thing.
Yields are rising like a 🚀

The 10-year yield, Wall Street’s favorite gauge for yields, jumped 11 basis points yesterday. That’s the most in 11 months.

It’s up about 23 basis points in February, poised for the biggest monthly jump in three years.

If you’re one of the millions of Americans groaning because you don’t want to buy in at record highs...

I have a little pep talk for you.

Stocks are back at record highs, and you missed out.

GRRR. FOMO sucks. I know.
Here's a free tip from your friendly neighborhood Twitter nerd:

Now may be the best time to invest.

Some thoughts on time, change, and why Wall Street thinks stocks are ripe for a selloff

(bear with me, this is gonna be a riff and my dog is misbehaving)
When people start crowing about the potential for stocks to fall, it's usually for four reasons:

1) stocks have risen a lot
2) too much time has passed without a drop
3) the market doesn't match what we're seeing in the economy and earnings
4) things just don't feel right

We’re talking about bubbles, but the VIX (the stock market’s fear gauge) is still above-average.

I think about that a lot 🤔
Seasoned investors will tell you that big selloffs happen when people least expect it.
History backs this up, too.

Since 1990 (when the VIX was introduced), the S&P 500 has gone through 12 drops of 10% or more.

10/12 of those drops started with the VIX below 20.
