The new - and little discussed - threats to markets over the next year

By Ken Fisher, The Globe and Mail, Thursday, April 18, 2024

Risk or ruse? Today, false fears fly, with bears citing endless “risks” supposedly set to whack the TSX and world stocks. The Middle East and Ukraine. Delayed rate cuts. Debt-devouring developed economies. On and on. Wrong! For stocks, these widely watched worries are old news.

To forecast stocks, get sentimental: the signs point to more bull market ahead

By Ken Fisher, The Australian, Monday, April 15, 2024

So far, so good! My 2024 outlook called for strong gains down under and worldwide – but with Aussie stocks lagging early before soaring late. Global returns of 11.6 per cent through to April 8 alongside a 3.9 per cent ASX rise speak to just that. More gains await. One key reason? Sentiment. Stocks always move most on the gap ­between expectation and subsequent results, so gauging the former is crucial.

הבחירות לנשיאות בארה"ב ייתנו רוח גבית למדד ת"א־35

By Ken Fisher, Calcalist, Sunday, April 14, 2024

כטבען של מניות קרות לב, להן קל יותר להתאושש מהזוועות, וכך מדד ת"א־35 שב לאיתנו מאז ההלם של 7 באוקטובר, וגל עליות נוסף נמצא בפתח, אך לא בגלל שהמניות צופות איזה ניצחון מהיר של צה"ל. פשוט כי כשמדברים על שווקים, הגלובלי תמיד יגבור על המקומי. נושבת גם רוח פוליטית כלשהי, לא־מזוהה. הרי זוהי שנת בחירות לנשיאות ארה"ב – והיא נהדרת לשוק המניות הן בארה"ב והן בישראל.

Forget Ukraine and Israel – investors won’t see these risks coming in 2024

By Ken Fisher, The Telegraph, Saturday, April 13, 2024

Surprises have the most sway over stocks – both positive and negative. My 2024 forecast suggested that pessimists, fixated on issues like the cost of living and wars in Ukraine and Israel and Gaza, would be shocked by double-digit bull market gains. So far so good, with world markets soaring 9.9pc in the past few months.

By Ken Fisher, Handelszeitung, Wednesday, April 10, 2024

Haben Sie das bemerkt? Seit Äonen kommt der Geografie im Geschäftsleben eine entscheidende Rolle zu. Um Erfolg zu haben, musste man stets der Wirtschaft und dem Kapital folgen – wie Amerika, dem Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten.

Pourquoi l’énergie va bientôt reprendre le dessus… coupant court aux scénarios baissiers

By Ken Fisher, La Libre, Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Abracadabra ! Les actions mondiales comme celles de la zone euro sont en pleine effervescence depuis le début 2024, à l’instar de la bonne à excellente année que j’avais annoncée en janvier dernier. Il ne s’agit là que l’une des nombreuses surprises que réserve cette année aux partisans d’un scénario baissier. Vous en voulez d’autres ? Les valeurs énergétiques prendront appui sur la reprise naissante de mars pour mener la danse. Je m’explique.

The ‘Land of Opportunity’ is now everywhere

By Ken Fisher, Business Times Singapore, Friday, April 5, 2024

FOR eons, geography was destiny in business. To succeed, you had to go where industry and capital were. Singapore offered some of that, especially after its economic “miracle”. But the “Land of Opportunity” was still America – and that opportunity was clustered in big cities such as New York and Los Angeles. This is no longer true.

Ken Fisher: «Il settore energetico sorprenderà i pessimisti, sostenendo il Ftse MIB»

By Ken Fisher, Il Sole 24 Ore, Friday, April 5, 2024

Le mie previsioni per il 2024 sono confermate dall’andamento delle azioni, che proseguono la loro ascesa, pronte a realizzare un buon, se non ottimo, risultato nel corso del 2024. Tuttavia, le azioni del settore energetico non sembrano - per ora - così “energiche”. Ma siate pazienti. L’Energia dovrebbe conquistare la leadership più avanti nell’anno, sorprendendo molti. Vi spiego perché.
