The most interesting market dynamic right now is that bad news, such as a possible war with Iran, mainly is used as an opportunity to put cash to work.
Apparently, unless the Iranian military simply does not train on their weapons, which I do not believe, the exercise was one of saving face... for now.
Many are expecting some sort of retaliation as a possible trade catalyst, and the inclination will be to buy any spike down.
The stock market's reaction yesterday to the Soleimani attack and even more so to the tweet storm from Washington astonished me.
We handicap the potential impact of responses that could range from military actions by Iran and its surrogates to cyberattacks against the U.S. and its allies.
The market seems to be collectively whistling past the threat of an Iran strike -- here's what's probably going on.
You asked for it, so here it is: This is where to put your money if the conflict with Iran gets out of control.
The potential exists for the company to maintain a growth rate between 50% and 100% for the next half-decade.
I'm far more excited about the potential buys that I see this action creating than I am about the weakness.
What I suggest individual investors do is give their portfolios a physical. Like a visit to the doctor.
