Ted Bauman notes that many investors fear the future of the stock market and hence make investment mistakes in one way or another. Bauman has an experience of more than two decades in the financial field. In his view on the current bull market, he notes that it might stay or last but there is a probability that on one side, the market would continue to rise and on the other, it would plunge to the lowest. In times of the bear markets and the bull markets, the investors should have a practical plan. As a member of Banyan Hill Publishing since 2013, Ted takes time to advise investors on many ways of protecting their investments.
He provides the investors with investment tips and ways of doubling their profits through Bauman Letter, a publication in Banyan. Ted Bauman notes that unexpected crash stocks mostly arise because of rules-based selling. This is a situation where an investor sells the stock when the prices are high, also known as the valuation-level sell. In another scenario, the investor replaces a stock with another promising stock, also known as opportunity cost-sell. Through his experience as an urban planner in World Bank, Ted Bauman, he advises the investors on various ways to protect their investments. Ted Bauman warns the investors not to rely on the short-term investment gains. He reminds investors that the process is risky but admits that some lucky investors earn immense profits overnight.
Another advice on protecting investment is through investing in on bonds and stocks. Stocks gain or lose daily, but bonds are valued on a monthly basis. He advises the investors to invest in bonds, wait for end month dividends, and avoid the volatile stocks market. However, Ted Bauman points that the investors are better placed if they invest in both the stocks and bonds. The advantage of investing in both of them is that the bonds protect the investor’s when the stock market crashes. Additionally, the stocks boost the investor’s portfolio when they gain, and bonds attract fewer dividends. Ted advise the investor who wants to invest in both to consider investing in balanced mutual funds because they draw quarterly dividends.
