I added two more items to my to-do list.
First, I will attempt to build a stock market performance model. If successful, the stock performance model will assist in forecasting the stock market inputs for both my Energy and Consumer Staples Industry Investment Models. Secondarily, this model will be handy for investors focused on general stock market or S&P500 funds.
Second, this weekend I went to Mohegan Sun casino and a lot of the lessons and observations I learned there can help with the art and science of investing. Therefore, I will work to publish an article about it.
Below is my outstanding to-do-list in order of priority:
- Build a stock market performance model.
- Investigate why the price estimate of my Energy Industry Investment Model is much lower than the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF's (XLE) price. I'm looking for evidence to support my hypothesis that dividend investors are propping up energy industry stocks.
- Investigate why merchant wholesaler inventory levels affects consumer staples industry stocks. I suspect two reasons: higher merchant wholesaler inventory levels equate to higher profit margins for consumer staples retailers or inventory levels is a result of future sales expectations.
- Write an article about lessons I learned from Mohegan Sun casino.
It seems that my to-do-list is growing fast. Wish I could dedicate more time to completing them.
