Jim Rogers On “Buying Panic” And Investments Nobody Is Talking About

By Nick Giambruno, Senior Editor, International Man

 

 

 

I am very pleased to have had the chance to speak with Jim Rogers, a legendary investor and true international man.

Jim and I spoke about some of the most exciting investments and stock markets around the world that pretty much nobody else is talking about.

You won't want to miss this fascinating discussion, which you'll find below.

Nick Giambruno: Tell us what you think it means to be a successful contrarian and how that relates to investing in crisis markets throughout the world.

Jim Rogers: Well, there are two aspects of it. One is being a trader, being able to buy panic, and nearly always if you are a trader or an investor, if you buy panic, you are going to do okay.

Sometimes it is better for the traders, because when there is a panic—a war breaks out or something like that—everything collapses, and some people are very good at jumping in and buying. Then, when the rally comes, the next day or the next month, they sell out.

Now, the people who are investors can also do that, but it usually takes longer for there to be a permanent rally. In other words, if there's a war and stocks go from 100 to 30 and everybody jumps in, it may rally up to 50, and then the traders will get out, it may go back to 30 again. I'm trying to make the differentiation between investors and traders buying panic.

As an investor, nearly always if you buy panic and you know what you are doing, and then hold on for a number of years, you are going to make a lot of money.

You also have to be sure that your crisis or panic is not the end of the world, though. If war breaks out, you have got to make sure it's a temporary war. Read more . . .

Quick Tip

If you find yourself considering offshore investing, be sure and do your homework first to find out all there is to know about the tax aspects.

While investing offshore still has many advantages, the IRS and regulators, for several years now, have been focusing on the lost revenues incurred as a result and how to plug the dike.

Be sure to research extensively online and also speak with your tax advisor so you don’t end up creating a bigger problem than the taxes you are trying to minimize.
