  • Market Correction?

    It’s hard to argue that the ’market’ won’t have a correction at some point in the future. And, we can certainly speculate about the timing and depth of the correction. I would be interested in ideas about what a prudent investor should be doing now to protect, prepare and potentially benefit from the upcoming correction.

    G'Day Doc, great discussion. You mention a "95% mark-up" suggesting this is substantial. Maybe you meant 95% gross margin...as a 95% mark-up of its cost is less than a 50% GM. I spent the last part of my business career manipulating 'the numbers' and I [...]
