Ted Bauman began to pick up on a mismanagement trend that started about a year ago as leaders of the country were set to move on and reformers were quickly moving in to take their place. He reasoned that those who sided with the reformers might stand to make a decent profit, because many other people would probably do the same. It turns out that he was right, and his investments increased by close to 13% in just 21 days because of it. This caused him to look for patterns in the market that might yield similar results, and those who did the same stood to gain 70% compared to what S&P 500 earned. Bauman believes this trend is set to occur again, and he has been investing his money in iShares MSCI, which is a South African ETF.
Ted Bauman was born in Washington, D.C. but grew up in Maryland until he decided to emigrate to South Africa as a younger man. While there, he studied at the University of Cape Town and received degrees in History and Economics. In South Africa, he also worked with many different nonprofit organizations as a fund manager. His work was part of efforts that aided over 14 million people who call 35 different countries their home. He now serves with Banyan Hill Publishing as the editor of the Bauman Letter, Alpha Stock Alert, and Plan B Club where he helps people to protect their assets and make wise low-risk investments to improve their finances.
Ted Bauman has predicted that Emerging Markets (EMs) will be a winning investment to make over the next year. Last year, investments by many people caused EMs to make a 37% gain, and he expects this to occur again in 2018. Part of the reason for the gain had to do with the fact that the United States dollar was down, which encouraged foreign EM stocks to do better. Along with this, EM corporate earning growth increased, and Bauman expects that stock prices will go up and that ETFs will also increase in value. Learn more at Seeking Alpha about Ted Bauman
