When It Comes to Exceptional Gains, ‘Contrarian’ Ideas Are Needed

Henry Bonner – Strategy and Council Letter (Switzerland) –

Here in Normandy, over the fields of corn or oats, the sky turns gray … the wind rises … and the cold enters the castle serving for the meeting with our colleagues …

At breakfast, the guests of the castle do the service – offering eggs, pastries, coffee, or fruit … A castle dating from the 18th century, the building served to accommodate nobles and dignitaries … Today, publishers of letters and publishing houses use them to make meetings … and the castle accommodate weddings and parties in the summer …

One of the presenters left behind his house in Florida … in Sarasota, on the way to Hurricane Irma … Maybe alligators are waiting for him in his living room on his return.

At least, in Europe, the climate does not hurricane … The arrival of “jet stream” in the North Sea creates stability – limiting storms, hurricanes, snow, and heat …

In spite of everything, in September, the heat of summer yields in a short time, here in France … plunging the country in the cold, rain … Saturday Paris, a bombardment of hail taken by surprise pedestrians and tourists strolling on the avenues …

The leaders see in the clouds and the bad weather signs of a change in the climate … a catastrophe, a flood in sight … requiring a frontal attack against the “polluters,” and petroleum …

Meanwhile, the market seems to have wiped out late summer hurricanes … and the fear of war with North Korea …

The world has gone through decades of tensions with the USSR, without seeing any H-bomb attack or A-bomb …

In addition, many countries now have bombs with the ability to destroy cities … so the rise of North Korea to the number of H and A bombers may not cause the apocalypse … At least, the investors believe in the possibility of a relaxation, or at least restraint with regard to the use of bombs, if only by instinct of survival …

Artist’s Craft in Los Angeles …

Trying to make a career on the west coast of the United States, in the city of Los Angeles, is a major challenge …

Film directors, actors, film financiers, filmmakers demand a variety of people and talents …

On the other hand, a competition rages between the participants to satisfy the demands of the market, the spectators …

Since they can only watch one movie at a time, or one TV channel at a time … the participants in the film industry must do their utmost to attract a part of the market to them … by trying to find an advantage against competitors …

Similarly, actors must compete with thousands of others … for roles, movies, projects, or series …

Filmmakers, writers and financiers must choose from a wide range of projects and ideas … like the public …

Finding your place in Hollywood requires attracting some of the attention – time and energy – from market participants …

A visiting sister tries, on a daily basis, to win roles and projects, as an actress …

In the city of Los Angeles, the multitude of ongoing projects attracts many actors and actresses – probably tens of thousands at least …

Going into a casting room allows to see the difficulty, given the size of the offer among actors and actresses …

So, to succeed probably passes by ways to “bypass” the processes of casting and discovery … in order to “stand out …” and get to get roles among the projects and films being produced …

What to do…?

In general, “follow the trail” does not find success …

Do like everyone else guarantees to have results like everyone else …

So, your results will not stand out …

Similarly, if your investments on the stock market reflect the “consensus” on the world to come … if you buy stocks like Google, Apple, and others – if you do like everyone else … then you’re unlikely to have Outstanding results …

A stock market advisor will generally tell you to “diversify …” which means having the positions of “everyone ….” A share in stocks, and a part in bonds …

However, your advisor will only tell you to “follow the trail …”

Having a little gold, as the occasional evokes this daily, constitutes a means of having a placement a little “out of the ordinary …”

Truly,

Henri Bonner
