Hello, my name is Kirk Spano. I am the founder of Bluemound Asset Management, LLC. My goal is to help you navigate a rapidly changing world so that you can protect and grow your financial freedom.
Today’s global economy and financial markets are experiencing seismic volatility. As I have dubbed it in the media,“slow growth forever,” is the new normal.
Over the coming decades, we will continue to see the global economy evolve in fits and bursts. While change can be scary, smart risk management can help us embrace the long-term opportunities.
Browse this site and learn about my approach. Then, contact me today, to talk about your goals, before the rush during the next inevitable bear market.
The saying “sell in May and go away” might have a more true meaning this year than most. Global risks to the economy and markets are rising at a rate I have not seen since 2006-07.
The S&P 500, which represents the large companies in the stock market, has been staging a rally since the early February mini-correction lows on hopes that everything will be okay. There is a good chance this rally keeps going for another month or two as it sucks in folks who catch a case of “I’m Missing-it-itis.” We shall see.
Regardless of what the stock market does in the very short-term, there are a host of risks piling up that threaten to not only cause a very significant stock market correction this year or next, but also throw the global economy into a shallow recession or possibly even another financial crisis — although as I’ll explain, the financial crisis scenario is not likely.
This is an update of the energy report begun in November 2014.
The report pairs well with this article on MarketWatch: The energy sector changed forever in 2015
Happy New Year! For me I am glad to see 2015 go. I had a heart injury, a house fire and have been early on several stock picks. Such is life. I survived, nobody got hurt in the fire, I’m back in my house and early doesn’t usually mean wrong if you are patient.
This is very important reading in my opinion, so please get a beverage and hunker down for a half hour. At least one topic I’m going to cover could spawn a book, but I will keep it as short as possible.
Before I get started with what to pay attention to in 2015, I would just like to say Happy New Year and take a look back at 2014.
In my January 2014 letter I stated that “While I am not convinced we have any major asset bubbles that are easy to identify, there are massive risks to global economics, some of which that are hidden in plain sight that concern me greatly.” Those risks have only grown over the past year.
