Glut of Cash: Low Inflation: Overvalued Markets: Where to Invest?

Glut of Cash: Low Inflation: Overvalued Markets: Where to Invest?

So the Feds printed a lot of cash in US. Paper money. Print kare jaao, dabaa dabaa ke.

But Chinese supplied the "stuff". So, even with lots of paper money, inflation did not rise.

Now, Mr. Rangarootam in NJ, still makes the same money.

His salary is somewhat stagnated, but his spending is not outrageous because he has seen 2008 bear.

He is careful with his money.

Its been 9 years.

Where is all his money going?

The milk gallon still costs the same more or less.

In a bank or CD, urgh, useless!

The scenario in the last 9 years has created a "glut of cash", "milk still costs the same", and "bank pay me nothing".

Where to invest? Mr. Ranga has no avenue.

SPY.

Just put it there.

So it goes up and up.

Feds aint looking at SPY, but at the cost of milk. Hmm...still $2.39 a gallon? We are ok.

This is slowly creating a vicious cycle.

Mr. Ranga has more money to invest in Real Estate now, because - where else?

A lot of companies pop up in Silicon Valley meanwhile like wealthfront, betterment, realtyshares, fundrise to provide alternative investments for cash rich clueless folks like Mr. Ranga.

What is going on?

The "kids" (aka 20+ year olds to job market) continue to invest in FANGs. They do not know any better (or worse!).

With these dynamics at play...........

I have decided to invest in realtyshares, and fundrise.

random decisions.

so rangarootnam stayed out of the biggest bullmarket ever (cash glut in past 9 yrs?) and decided to throw him money into a bullshit crowdfunding real estate endeavor that's nothing more than a craigslist where ppl with very poor FICO score can get idiots to fund their real estate ventures?

rangarootnam sounds like a dumb fuck x 10.

Mr. Ranga has never missed to invest the max in his 401K, has 2 kids - so in their 529 plan. Before looking elsewhere to invest, it is a given that Mr. Ranga invests in stock market regularly, irrespective of a bull or bear or a rabbit market.

This is after such investments.

Before I even start getting into the details of craiglist of RE, whats your take on where to invest?

Thanks for sharing your insights,

Bank stocks like JPM or C or MS.  Trump may finally push the tax bill and  remove some banking restrictions.  It may take 3 to 12 months.

Hi TBT,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Yes, Financial sector is far more disciplined after 2008 crash.

My friends working in the industry have been pointing to XLF ETF for last few years.

I did buy WFC when price dropped - unrealistically to the crime.

I read that Buffet has sold off his GE, and invested in SFY and BNY Mellon.

There is value in financials for value seekers.

But IMHO, what is happening post 2008 is that cash is there, but no safe investments at all. People are FORCED into stocks. Making stocks go higher. Its not a choice like in 2000 or 2008, but their ONLY option.

Regards,
TS.
