To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Does not really work in this environment. Japan has record highs, Germany same so difficult to buy at these levels. US market is way overbought and dropping. Fixed income is flat abroad and really low returns in the US. Seems like just sector rotation in US and unpredictable political pressure. After watching stocks steadily sell off I opted out at peak and bought preferred stocks which have high dividends and little downside. If the companies elect to call, bought at levels beneath the callable price so I would make money that way. Seems the safest in this environment and if there's a huge pullback I can sell the preferred stocks and buy the best at a reasonable price.
