Biderman’s Daily Edge: Investors Selling Because They Need the Money


Individual investors have been getting out of US equity mutual funds for most of this year. And the pace of outflows has been soaring recently. Outflows for all of 2012 now stand at $100 billion. Half of that, $50 billion, came out during the last three months. Flight from the funds is not a new trend. In fact, about $134 billion flowed out of equity mutual funds in 2011. ÊWhat’s really puzzling is that despite these heavy outflows, stock prices have gone up. Read More

The Bernanke put says the Fed will print enough money to buy existing loans, and then everyone lives happily ever after. Read More

Sausalito, CA – August 9, 2012 – TrimTabs Investment Research said today that inflows into checking and savings accounts are far outpacing inflows into all other major investment vehicles.

“The Fed and other central banks are doing everything in their power to convince investors to play the speculative game in rigged stock markets,” said Charles Biderman, CEO of TrimTabs.  “But investors aren’t taking the bait.  The most popular destination for investor cash is the mattress.”
