INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ON INVESTMENT CYCLICALITY © 

From Nobel Prize winners to Warren Buffett, there is unlikely to be a human on the planet that doesn’t believe that boom and bust cycles exist. We all know they recur, however debate remains how to best identify them in advance (and some question if it is possible at all).

Understanding booms and busts is an imperfect science, and always will be, yet there is substantial evidence to “be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”. This is why we exist and how we keep our readers ahead.

The Investing Times is one of Australia’s longest running investment publications, with advanced research delivered directly to subscribers twice per quarter and comprising 10,000-15,000 words of investment research. We break this up via three core sections:

  • Performance appraisal including the structural and cyclical developments you should know about
  • Explore the investment cycle indicators that are supportive by evidence, both locally and globally.
  • Provide direct share research and screening tools, allowing one to identify underlying opportunities and risks.

If you believe the current quality of investment information is poor (or most recent subscribers survey rated the wider industry just 4.2 out of 10 on average) and your ambition is to “buy low and sell high”, this publication is designed to put you ahead. We are the exclusive home of the Zone System , which is our longest running and most popular investment cycle indicator. The basis behind the long-term success of the Investing Times is that we advocate common-sense investing using a research agenda that is validated over extensive time periods.
