Wall Street keeps roaring to new highs, however, most Americans are still on the sidelines. So what gives? Buybacks. Corporate buybacks are at an all-time high, which fuels gains in the markets and increased earnings at the same time. How does this work? Howard Silverblatt, the senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices explains it best, writing, "Companies are caught in the buyback mode – reduce them and EPS growth declines."
Apple has spent $45 billion over 12 months to support its #stock via buybacks. Information technology leads the pack on buybacks.
What does this mean to the average investor? Where's the best place to be if buybacks abate? Will earnings deflate on a stronger dollar? What's the hottest investment for 2015? The safest? The best hedge against a downturn?
All this and more in the show, Crystal Ball 2015!

As we head into 2015, and the 6th year of this bull market, will the U.S. experience a recession?
Gold and oil prices are down. Wall Street is up. Will this hold?
GDP is strong, but can it continue?
The Feds are printing money and hold more debt than at any other time in American history, by far (including the Great Depression). Republicans have both Houses. Can they fix things? Or is the U.S. in serious trouble?
So, what happens in the near term? Will there be a Santa Rally 2014? A recession in 2015?
Bestselling author Natalie Pace reveal the results of her most recent data crunch on recessions, pre-election years, gold and more.

Republicans are now in charge of both Houses. Senator Mitch McConnell vows that Congress will pay bills and that there is no need to shut the government down.
So, how will America deal with the $18 trillion in debt? Will the Mainstream Media continue to tout a robust economy and ignore the challenges of today's Debt World? How should that affect your investing? How will it affect the Santa Rally and the economy in 2015?
Can this bull market make it to year six, when recessions occur on average every 5 years?
Cops Are Buying Cameras. Should You Buy the Camera Company?
On Monday, December 1, 2014, President Obama vowed to build more trust between communities and police. According to WhiteHouse.gov, “Part of the proposal is a new Body Worn Camera As Partnership Program, which would provide a 50 percent match to states and localities that purchase body worn cameras and requisite storage. In fact, the proposed $75 million, three-year investment could help purchase 50,000 body worn cameras.”
This is great news for underserved communities. But it is also great news for Taser International, a leading provider of the video-cam of choice for police officers, the Taser Axon Flex.
Could cameras on cops prevent future Ferguson and Staten Island tragedies?
For additional information on my analysis of Taser, read the article, "Cops are Buying Cameras. Should You Buy the Camera Company?" at the link directly below.
Wall Street has been on a rollercoaster again this year, and "new money" isn't coming in. There is still a lot of dough on the sidelines, earning 0% interest, wondering what to do. One banking executive says it this way, "The economy is an economic mess because we print money. There are no investments to compete with stocks as there is no interest rate. The stock market goes up for the same reason a dictator gets 95pct of the vote: no alternative.”
According to Howard Silverblatt, the senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, the fundamentals of publicly traded companies are good, it's just the perception of the marketplace that is not so good. "Fund and money managers have stayed in the market, with the joke being that they are too scared to be out of it," Howard wrote in a note in July.
Meanwhile, the Middle East is still in crisis, oil prices are at all-time highs and the 1st quarter GDP growth in the U.S. was a shocking contraction of 2.1%.
So, is this the calm before the storm or the rally? Did you know that September, when fund managers and American investors return from vacation, is historically the worst performing month of the year? Will this year be a true to form? Are you protected? Will you be able to pick up some bargains before the Santa Rally?
