The Approaching Inevitable Market Reversal

Closer every day...
Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 7:06 AM

Though we’re constantly reassured by financial pundits and the Federal Reserve that the stock market is not a bubble and that valuations are fair, there is substantial evidence that suggests the contrary.

The market is dangerously stretched in terms of valuation and sentiment, and it does not accurately reflect fundamentals such as earnings and sales growth. » Read more

Introducing The New (Full-Length) Crash Course

The public release of Chapters 1 & 2
Friday, June 27, 2014, 12:36 PM

Last week we announced that we've spent the better part of the last year completely rebuilding the entire Crash Course video seminar.

Each chapter has been completely updated with recent data, better visualizations, and a more polished look and feel. We've also added several brand-new chapters on important new developments to the Three E story (i.e., quantitative easing, shale oil, environmental stressors) that weren't in the picture when the original series was created back in 2008. » Read more

Friday, June 20, 2014, 10:50 AM

The video below shines a bright light on these trends and the risks we face as a result. But it also offers hope.

Iraq Breaks Down, Oil Surges

The context underlying the growing crisis
Monday, June 16, 2014, 11:58 AM

The situation in Iraq is serious, and is probably going to get worse before it gets better. The potential for this recent action to morph into a regional conflict is very high. That that means that oil could go a lot higher, and if it does, we can expect the odds of a global economic recession and an attendant financial crisis to go up considerably from here. » Read more

The Good News In All The Bad Data

A rare convergence of confidence in future developments
Friday, June 13, 2014, 12:14 AM

Today's financial markets make a mockery out of sanity and logic. The difference between what SHOULD happen and what IS happening is perhaps the greatest it has been in our investing lifetimes.

If you're perplexed, flummoxed, frustrated, stymied, enraged, bored, irritated, insulted, discouraged -- any or all of these -- by the ever-higher blind grinding of asset prices over the past several years, despite so many structural reasons for concern, you have good reason to be.

Farmland LP

A Weekend On The Farm

An excellent investment of time (and money)
Wednesday, June 4, 2014, 9:55 AM
If you've been a reader of PeakProsperity.com for more than a few months, you've likely heard us talk about Farmland LP. It's a fund that purchases over-farmed, depleted conventional farmland (at a discounted price), and then spends years nursing the land back to organic status using sustainable farming methods.
 
As an investor, I have the opportunity to tour any of the fund's 5 farm properties, which are located in southern Oregon and central California. So that just what I did this past weekend when the Farmland team held its first annual investor gathering at its newest (and largest) property in Stockton, CA.
