Fear is the Greatest Enemy

By Alan Dustin
October 28, 2017
Category: General

Fear is nothing more than an emotional response to a stimulus.  It can keep us out of harm’s way or it can keep us from reaching our most desired goals.  It can be real or perceived, meaning that our mind reacts the same way to fear whether it is real or imagined.  Fear comes in many disguises.  Listed are some of the more common fears we develop that you may be able to identify with, they include: fear of heights, fear of the dark, fear of flying, fear of spiders, fear of failure, f...

Are You Living the Candian Dream?

By Alan Dustin
September 30, 2017
Category: General

I was watching a program the other day and the host was asking a group of individuals if they felt like they were living the American Dream?  Taking a page from our neighbours to the south I decided to find out how we in the north feel? 

It is common to hear many describe their dream as, “Having the house with the white picket fence.” However, today some believe that making an impact or feeling that they’re contributing is just as important. ... Continue reading


Hurricanes and Market Corrections - Why "riding it out" is a bad idea.

By Alan Dustin

Hurricane Andrew devastated Florida in 1992.  Thirteen years later, in 2005, Katrina brought New Orleans to the brink.  Sandy hit the Atlantic coast in 2012, and now Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida in 2017.  So what can we learn from these catastrophic events?  First, they are a mathematical certainty.  Second, they are extremely dangerous and three, their risks can be managed.  We’ve heard so much lately about the devastation caused by Harvey and Irma, according to me...

Phillips Interrupted

By Alan Dustin
July 12, 2017
Category: General

The Phillips Curve is a model that illustrates the inverse relationship between unemployment and the rate of inflation.  The premise is that as the unemployment rate decreases inflation pressures begin to emerge.  So why should you care?

Note in the graph that as unemployment decreases, inflation increases and vice versa.

Because the U.S. economy has reached full employment (similar in Canada), y... Continue reading

If intelligence was the secret ingredient to making massive amounts of money, then every Ph.D. would be a multi-millionaire.  Not surprisingly, that is simply not the case.  If intelligence is not the answer, what is?  That is the question I will attempt to answer in the following piece.

Many investors believe that the key to making riches in the stock market is based on logic and analysis.  If that were true, then everyone with a cal... Continue reading

Passport – check, itinerary – check, sunscreen – check, bathing suit – check, reading material – check, medication – check, travel insurance – what?  Due to the harsh climate of where we live, Canadians love to break up the winter doldrums with a couple of days of sun.  So, anywhere between December and March we may find ourselves looking for some last minute deals to get away.

The internet has made it extremely easy to find warm destinations for th... Continue reading

The Rules of Engagement

By Alan Dustin
January 31, 2017
Category: General

Investors complicate matters when it comes to investing, but when you boil it all down we’re usually left with two simple goals.  The first goal investors have is to provide for their families.  The second goal is to save enough to retire comfortably.  So if understanding investing is that easy, why do so many investors find these goals so difficult to achieve?  The answer:  They fail to think like rich people.

So what do rich people... Continue reading

The Retirement Gamble

By Alan Dustin
January 17, 2017
Category: General

Lately I have been reading a number of articles by industry experts and journalists espousing the virtues of the sixty-equity, forty-bond allocation.  Their reasoning is that there is no alternative (TINA) to earning a good return on your hard earned capital.  I know better, and it is more in line with their interests than yours.  In 2017, it will have been 10 years since the beginning of the last financial crisis and for someone who is retired, or soon to be, this may be very dangerous a...

The calendar years ending in 7 have not been kind to stock investors.  I’m sure I don’t need to remind you what year we’ve just begun?  So why don’t we take a stroll down memory lane starting forty years ago and build the case.

In January of 1977, Jimmy Carter was the newly elected president. He started his term with a number of domestic economic problems, including increasing gas prices, rising inflation and rising unemployment.  The Dow Jones... Continue reading
