written by reader Thoughts or comments re Michael Pento’s “Pento Portfolio Strategies” ?

By Ispy, October 6, 2016

In his mid-week reality check Mr. Pento is saying he temporarily changing from being hedged against inflation to being hedged against deflation. He’s seeing indications a change in the Fed monetary policy appears to be likely and imminent so he’s thinking that there’s a 25% chance of a rate hike in November and a 70% to 80% chance they do a rate hike in December.

Other than seeing him on TV I’m not that familiar with Mr. Pento’s work so I was wondering if anyone would care to share their thoughts/experience regarding his investing acumen?

Ispy/TIA…No comment on Mr Pento but I have come to the same conclusion on my own.
There are a lot of deflationary signs. I’m concerned about it. I am chiefly invested in gold and hard assets
and I am a moderator of a thread devoted to it. But right now I am concerned about hedging more for deflation. To me that means cash. But I am not liquidating long-term gold and silver investments to do it.

Pento is a joke, He’s a broken clock that has not been right even once or twice a day. He has been complete wrong just like Schiff and the rest of that crew.

Pento is probably one of the more accurate prognosticators in a field of people who are often wrong about timing the “crash.” More recently Pento seems to be gravitating towards precious metals as a hedge against the ultimate decline in the value of fiat currencies. He seems to think that the Fed will be able to keep asset values high for a while but eventually will be engulfed by stagflation and eventual hyperinflation reminiscent of the late 1970’s, but only worse. Pento is no scam, to be suresure, but he operates is an environment where timing is a very elusive component.
