Get to Know Justice Litle
What is a hot sector for 2013?Housing will continue to benefit from powerful trends. The U.S. government and the Federal Reserve are committed to pumping up housing as a means of juicing economic recovery. Wall Street is helping through mass purchases of single-family homes. Meanwhile, millions of underwater homeowners are enjoying rising price trends again but are still far too underwater to sell – so supply will remain restricted. There is solid potential for U.S. real estate to enter another deliberately engineered bubble – one the Fed will be scared to burst prematurely.
What is one thing an investor should consider when picking a stock? Investors should be cognizant of top-down, as well as bottom-up, factors. A useful analogy is to think of the market as a mountain. Bottom-up analysis – looking at the fundamentals of a company – is the equivalent of studying the soil and terrain at the base of the mountain. Top-down analysis pays attention to the weather, the surrounding climate and the possibility of catastrophic events like wildfires or avalanches. Those who ignore top-down factors put their financial survival at risk.
What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy traveling, hiking, snowboarding and philosophy. I do a lot of reading and play a fair amount of poker. Amateur photography is also something I enjoy. I have framed large-scale photographs from unique places I have visited all over the world – from New Zealand mountain lakes to Scottish castle ruins.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt? Professional poker player. Poker bears many similarities to trading and investing. The skilled and profitable poker player has to be comfortable with psychology, mathematics, strategy, game theory, social observation and more. Poker, like the markets, is a fascinating game that rewards creativity, talent and good judgment (and punishes the lack thereof). It’s a natural fit.
