Investment Readings

Below are some investment-related articles I am reading:

Could Oil Prices Intensify a Pending S&P 500 Selloff? – JW Jones

Towards the Paranormal – Bill Gross

Bill Gross’ summary: “For 2012, in the face of a delevering zero-bound interest rate world, investors must lower return expectations. 2–5% for stocks, bonds and commodities are expected long term returns for global financial markets that have been pushed to the zero bound, a world where substantial real price appreciation is getting close to mathematically improbable. Adjust your expectations, prepare for bimodal outcomes. It is different this time and will continue to be for a number of years. The New Normal is “Sub,” “Ab,” “Para” and then some. The financial markets and global economies are at great risk.”
