The Power of Paradox

I have a strong conviction that 10 year treasuries will make new price HIGHs before commencing a decades long bear. I think it will record yield lows despite irrefutable evidence of worrisome inflation. Why? Because I believe in the power of paradox.

No 20 hour fast or avocados today. I’m having lunch on the beach with an investment legend…a money maker…a rare mind and a great guy.
I’m not having lunch with Ken Fischer. I tell the tale of emailing him in this week’s podcast. He wrote a great stock valuation book conceived around the metric of price-to-sales. It’s not too heavy and I would recommend it for anyone pursuing a career in stock research.
It was the only language I spoke back then as a long-only guy. I sent Ken my analysis on Vodafone back in 1998. The bugger couldn’t have been more disagreeable. Finance is surprisingly open and the greats always find time to send a small note of best wishes. Not Ken.
