COMMENT
Market Outlook The Fed Chairman is moving the thought process away from a 50 point cut. The market reacted negatively as the Fed may now be trying to pour cold water on the market. You should always structure your financial allocation when emotions are not charged to be able to look at thing objectively. Your strategies should not be driven by short term headlines. He thinks the market sentiment is still fearful and thinks investors have actually taken money off the table. Overall, he doesn't view the market as being frothy.

It has had a number of different chapters. The company has been recovering with same store sales increasing and with a positive outlook for its Chinese operations. The problem is the PE ratio trading in the high 20s, means the stock is always priced to perfection with little room for stumbles. He would look elsewhere.

He does not generally buy ETFs. Gold producers have a long history of messing up their own good fortune. There are often operational disconnects between the share price and bullion prices. He would prefer to play gold with GLD-N. He feels doing so creates a good hedge against other asset classes. If we head into recessionary pressures, holding GLD-N could play well. Don't hold more than 5-6% of your portfolio in gold.

Buying when a stock has gone up. Be careful about buying more when a stock has gone up -- that means buying higher, when the value is dropping. How you invest should be like a producer of widgets. Create a business plan and rules based on circumstances and follow them. Specifically, TPC-N has seen its infrastructure projects be negatively impacted by weather delays. Their book to bill is about 3 times -- showing there are a lot projects in the hopper. He expects their earnings to improve over time. He still likes the company.

A very steady operator and does not take on a lot of credit risk. The more transactions they put through the more money they make. Last year they accounted for $1.3 trillion in transactions. It is not inexpensive, but you have to pay up for quality.

He owns this in their small cap portfolio and it has a good long term future. They roll out the engineering wire, cable and fiber to handle 5G projects. Their revenues are lumpy, because there are a limited number of customers right now. They are a fixed cost business, so at times the earnings will vary greatly.
