Why Is The Smart Money Suddenly Getting Out Of Stocks And Real Estate?

Exit Sign - Photo by SheDreamsInRedIf wonderful times are ahead for U.S. financial markets, then why is so much of the smart money heading for the exits?  Does it make sense for insiders to be getting out of stocks and real estate if prices are just going to continue to go up?  The Dow is up about 17 percent so far this year, and it just keeps setting new record high after new record high.  U.S. home prices have risen about 11 percent from a year ago, and some analysts are projecting that we are on the verge of a brand new housing boom.  Why would the smart money want to leave the party when it is just getting started?  Well, of course the truth is that the “smart money” is regarded as being smart because they usually make better decisions than other people do.  And right now the smart money is screaming that it is time to get out of the markets.  For example, the SentimenTrader Smart/Dumb Money Index is now the lowest that it has been in more than two years.  The smart money is busy selling even as the dumb money is busy buying.  So precisely what does the smart money expect to happen?  Are they anticipating a market “correction” or something bigger than that?

Those are very good questions.  Unfortunately, the smart money rarely divulges their secrets, so we can only watch what they do.  And right now a lot of insiders are making some very interesting moves.

For example, George Soros has been dumping almost all of his financial stocks.  The following is from a recent article by Becket Adams

Everyone’s favorite billionaire investor is back in the spotlight, and this time he has a few people wondering what he’s up to.

George Soros has dumped his position with several major banks including JPMorgan Chase, Capitol One, SunTrust, and Morgan Stanley. He has reduced his exposure to Citigroup and decreased his stake in AIG by two-thirds.

In fact, Soros’ financial stock holdings are down by roughly 80 percent, a massive drop from his position just three months ago, according to SNL Financial.

So exactly what is going on?

Why is Soros doing this?

Well, there is certainly a lot to criticize when it comes to Soros, but you can’t really blame him if he is just taking his profits and running.  Financial stocks have been on a tremendous run and that run is going to end at some point.  Smart investors lock in their profits while they still can.

And without a doubt, stocks have become completely divorced from economic reality in recent months.  For example, there is usually a very close relationship between corporate earnings and stock prices.  But as CNBC recently reported, that relationship has totally broken down lately…

That trend disrupted a formerly symbiotic relationship between earnings and stock prices and is indicating that the bluechip average is in for a substantial pullback, according to Tom Kee, who runs the StockTradersDaily investor web site.

“They’ve been moving in tandem since 2009, until recently. Earnings per share for the Dow Jones industrial average have flatlined and the price has taken off,” Kee said. “There is something happening here that defines a bubble.”

At some point there will be a correction.  If the relationship between earnings and stock prices was where it should be, the Dow would be  around 13,500 right now.  That would be a fall of nearly 2,000 points from where it is at the moment.

And we appear to be entering a time when revenues at many corporate giants are actually declining.  As I noted in a previous article, corporate revenues are falling at Wal-Mart, Proctor and Gamble, Starbucks, AT&T, Safeway, American Express and IBM.

Of course a stock market “correction” can turn into a crash very easily.  Financial markets in Japan are already crashing, and many fear that the escalating problems in the third largest economy on the planet will soon spill over into Europe and North America.

And things in Europe just continue to get steadily worse.  In fact, the New York Times is reporting that the European Central Bank is warning that the risk of a “renewed banking crisis” in Europe is rising…

The European Central Bank warned on Wednesday that the euro zone’s slumping economy and a surge in problem loans were raising the risk of a renewed banking crisis, even as overall stress in the region’s financial markets had receded.

In a sober assessment of the state of the zone’s financial system, the E.C.B. said that a prolonged recession had made it harder for many borrowers to repay their loans, burdening banks that had still not finished repairing the damage caused by the 2008 financial crisis.

And there are many financial analysts out there that are warning that their cyclical indicators have peaked and that we are on the verge of a fresh global downturn

“We see building evidence of a cyclical downturn,” said Fredrik Nerbrand, HSBC’s global asset guru. “We find it highly troubling that the eurozone is still marred in a recession at the same time as our cyclical indicators appear to have peaked.”

In the United States, a lot of the smart money has also decided that it is time to bail out of the housing market before this latest housing bubble bursts.  The following is one example of this phenomenon that was discussed in a recent Businessweek article

Hedge fund manager Bruce Rose was among the first investors to coax institutional money into the mom and pop business of single-family home rentals, raising $450 million last year from Oaktree Capital Group LLC.

Now, with house prices climbing at the fastest pace in seven years and investors swamping the rental market, Rose says it no longer makes sense to be a buyer.

“We just don’t see the returns there that are adequate to incentivize us to continue to invest,” Rose, 55, chief executive officer of Carrington Holding Co. LLC, said in an interview at his Aliso Viejo, California office. “There’s a lot of — bluntly — stupid money that jumped into the trade without any infrastructure, without any real capabilities and a kind of build-it-as-you-go mentality that we think is somewhat irresponsible.”

So what does all of this mean?

Is there a reason why the smart money is suddenly getting out of stocks and real estate?

It could just be that the insiders are simply responding to market dynamics and that many of them are just seeking to lock in their profits.

Or it could be something much more than that.

What do you think?

Why are so many insiders heading for the exits right now?

  • laperle

    Well I am going to bet against this article, going to purchase some short term call options. been following your articles for years….been buying gold it tanked….sold my stocks 3 years ago and they skyrocketed. waited to buy a house and they have gone up 10-20 percent. You may be right in the very long term but lately one could make a lot of money betting against what you claim.

    • Aaron

      If you really have been following the site for years and you bought gold a few years ago then you are sitting on significant profits. I bought gold in ’09 at $800. Things are looking good from that perspective.

      • CinnamonGirl

        I bought gold in 09 too and glad I did! I was able to buy a foreclosure with cash in 12 from that investment. Now I have a paid for home. Makes me nervous seeing it drop but that just means each month I am able to buy that much more.
        BTW Roubini on CNBC said yesterday that there might be a crash like 08 in 2 more years.

  • K

    The fact that the market is doing this well, while Japan is crashing. Just proves how manipulated it is. So go ahead, interpret it the way the big boys want you to. If japan goes down this much, and the DOW hardly moves. It must mean the DOW is bullet proof. Yeah, right. And housing prices can never go down either. I understand how people can fall for this nonsense. What I can not understand, is how the keep falling for it, time, and time, and time again.

    I love this blog and i think the info is wonderful, but there is one problem, a massive amount of confirmation bias on behalf of this blog. We need a balance here because people could have more than DOUBLED their stock investments in the last 4 years, get more than back to even on their houses, and get some good returns in the bond market. Conversely, I do realize this isnt a blog on how to manage money, so fair enough. BTW, if you want to know how to invest in this climate, use 1929 as your 2008 and study the great depression. you will see striking similarities and you will also know that in 1937 the market collapsed again. So be prepared for 2016…? It would be wise to start taking some profits, buying puts, making sure your money is safe and is in the right bank and having plenty of liquidity.

    The markets are only doing well because of QE coordination between the central banks of the world. Japan shot up only due to 1.4 trillion in money printing, the cycle is proving to be very short lived because of debt incurred.

    Here’s the global QE game; as each central bank takes its turn printing money the others buy their bonds. My funny money buys your bonds and your funny money buys my bonds.

    The central banks are no longer paying the master card with the visa card, in fact they are not even making payments at all. The central banks are just increasing the credit limit, taking a cash advance and paying current entitlements, propping up the financial system, causing an artificial short supply of housing by not even filing foreclosures and an artificial demand with low interest rates.

    LOOK WHAT’S COMING !!! DON’T BELIEVE THEN YOUR EITHER RICH OR STUPID !!!

    The U.K. economy may be crawling back to growth, but the number of people relying on food handouts is soaring due to welfare cuts and
    unemployment.

    Charities warned Thursday that as many as 500,000 people may be going hungry as benefits are cut or withheld, food becomes more expensive, jobless rates rise and real incomes are squeezed.

    “Cuts to social safety nets have gone too far, leading to destitution, hardship and hunger on a large scale,” said Mark Goldring, CEO of Oxfam,
    one of the charities behind a report entitled “Walking the Breadline.” “It is unacceptable that this is happening in the seventh wealthiest
    nation on the planet.”

    The U.K. government is cutting spending in a bid to keep its austerity program on track. It has been forced to push back the timetable for reducing
    government borrowing due to weaker-than-expected growth, but Chancellor
    George Osborne is determined to stick to the revised targets.

    The U.K. economy returned to growth in the first quarter of the year, but is expected to expand by just 0.6% in 2013. The International
    Monetary Fund last week called for more spending on infrastructure to accelerate the pace of recovery.

    Actually, considering that prices of gas and commodities has more than doubled since diversity entered the White House, the Stock Market price would actually be half of what it is in 2008 dollars! Which means that instead of 14,000, the market is actually at 7,000 or less by 2008 standards. The Stock Market has ALREADY CRASHED! People don’t realize it because of the rampant inflation due to the diminished purchasing power of the US Dollar! How can anyone think they’ve made money in the market when they’re paying double for the price of gas and commodities?
    However, the market is definitely going down, and inflation may not hide it this time. Wal-Mart is reporting losses for the first time in years, and they’ve stopped selling consumer electronics and started selling groceries! If they can’t make a profit selling food, then this economy is headed straight down!

    It’s not even a free market anymore, it is a manipulated market. Why anyone would invest in a manipulated market is beyond me, you can’t win. TPTB are going to get what they want and will sacrifice everyone that stays in this crazy market.

    • Tim

      Yes, most of the financial markets are manipulated. But you can make money if you know what you’re doing. If you had bought stocks in late 2008 and held them until now, you would have done very well. For example, WFM was trading at under $10/share in late 2008. It recently traded as high as $105/share. (There was a two-for-one stock split this month, and now WFM is trading for around $53/share.) That’s just one example. There are many other stocks you could have bought in late 2008 that would have made you wealthy had you held them until now.

  • Blackhawk

    To answer simply and directly to your question in the title:

    “Because they are smart”

    Obviously if they have something to sell they have to have a buyer. If they are not duping a lot of dumb money into what they selling, who else is there to buy their junk?

    Apologise for the ones that are lining up for losses, but this is their game and they never loose on the long run.

  • Annette Smith

    Sigh….since 2008, I have been hearing about an imminent crash of the stock market. Gerald Celente was someone I used to listen to. He’s toast, now. In his latest “Trends in the News”, he curses over and over…so angry. I feel sorry for him. The crash won’t happen for several years. There will be one. But, I think that there will be other factors involved that bring it down.

    • Joe Shmo

      I’m with you on this. I think it wise to never underestimate the power of the banksters in keeping this thing rolling. Who could have predicted TARP and then the QE’s, Cash for clunkers and all of the manipulative programs the Gov and FED engaged in? I’ll just keep stacking and ride it out.

    • MeMadMax

      No the crash will happen whenever the fed decides to stop QE, OR the world, particularly china, decides to stop buying debt or use the dollar or both. Those things are pretty much the only things keeping the status quo alive right now. All of which can be turned off with the click of a mouse without warning too. I don’t think thats a healthy future, do you?

  • Makati1

    It’s simple. They know that another crash is being engineered for the near future. I would bet that most of the big money was out of the markets before the last time it crashed also. Just as the wealthy (Russians) had most of their money out of the Cyprus banks ahead of the collapse. They know … you don’t.

    Why another crash? How else can you take a lot of wealth out of the middle and move it upstairs? Still a lot of owner occupied homes out there to acquire. Still too much money in mutual funds and 401ks and IRAs to let it lay there. Still too much freedom in the West.

    Little more than the trickle down theory at work. Just Stimulate the markets with easy credit Then abracadabra the rest of the economy follow suite on a wave of irratinal exuberence for the markets and renewed debt bubbles for the rest of us Such is the formula of the reserve, but one built on the shakey supposition of optimism, and kept inflated by reserve chiefs of the world I think the undoing will come with a problem in Japan or china such a slow down or something that will take the hot air out of banknannys bag

    What are the CONS in the Congress buying and selling?

  • Cruzzio

    I believe they know something bad is going to go down(pun intended). The stock market is an illusion. The Fed/Treasury has been printing money like crazy for a while now. This smoke and mirror game WILL not last very much longer. It’s only a matter of time before this elaborate charade is exposed for all to see. The MSM will not be able to cover for the President or his cronies any longer when the whole house of cards come crashing down on them. I’m glad I have job security by being in the military, but I’m also aware that the four star clowns in charge will blindly follow orders. I WILL NOT fight against my own people. I guess I’ll just have to make the hard choice when the time comes and just go home.

    This situation could have been easily averted by the copious use of common sense!

  • bbj

    The problem is not that are not enough evidences that Obama

    is not a social anti-racist
    war enemy, bout the people don”t
    want to see that.

    Because many people want to be absolute liberal, anti-racist

    anti anti anti
    anti-Semitic, international and want believe that the ms media, ms

    science, ms history is independent. No matter how the
    personal or political

    price is.

    e.g Manipulation is the strongest weapon in the world. If

    people absolute want that one person is good equal that he
    does, he can do

    everything he wants.

    Really everything. He could
    kill the half world and the people would say, he rescued the half

    world from dying.

    Obama e.g . Yes it was stupid from Mitt Romney to say that
    the least 47% who vote Obama equal

    that he does are welfare bum.

    But in one thing he said was right. At least 47% had voted
    him equal that

    he did.

    If he had raised the national debt about ten times. They had

    said Mc Cain had raised the national debt 12 times. If he
    had raised the

    national debt about twenty times, they had said, Mc Cain had
    raised the

    national debt about thirty times. And if he had raised the
    national debt about

    100 times, they had said Mc Cain had raised the national
    debt about 120 times…

    And with wars the same. If Obama had begun 10 new wars, they

    had said, Mc Cain had begun, 20 new wars.

    And if Obama had begun 100 new wars, they had said Mc cain
    had begun,

    120 new wars.

    So equal how bad Obamas politics would had been , they had

    said under a president Mc Cain it would had been worse.

    So if many people want to see about ideological reasons that

    a person or group is good equal that he or they do/does,
    they can do

    everything.

    And that the problem about the Blogs, they show many very

    good objective arguments that Obama is not a social
    anti-racist war opponent,

    but not ideological arguments.

    But the best objective arguments doesn’t mind. They always

    will find reasons why Obama is a good president.

    E.G try only with objective arguments to persuade a person,
    that in a country B are

    also beautiful countrysides , who like the least 47% think
    about ideological

    reasons that are only ugly pictures in country B, he will
    always see ugly

    pictures, equal how beautiful pictures you show them.

    Because the reasons are not objective, but ideological.

    So you must persuade him at first with ideological reasons,

    so that he is ideological ready to

    change his attitude or opinion.

    With Obama the same, if you don’t want that Obama keeps a

    full second term in office, you must people persuade with ideological
    arguments,

    that Obama is not a social, anti-racist, war opponent.

    And that is only possible with ideological and not with

    objective arguments, because they believe that about
    ideological reasons and not

    about objective reasons.

    Ideological reasons for that are:

    Because many people want to be about ideological reasons

    absolute liberal, anti-racist, anti anti-Semitic,
    international and want believe

    that the ms media, ms science, ms history is independent.
    And this to very price , no matter how the personal or

    political price is.

    You must persuade them with ideological arguments that 2+2

    is always 4.

    So if 2+2 is always 4, Obama would at least lose his job

    because of Libya.

    Because the the constitution wants after original conception

    of legacy that a president stops a war after 90 days, if he
    doesn’t get the

    permission of the congress.

    Obama begun with attacking Libya at March 2011, in July
    2011,

    the congress wanted that Obama stopped the unconstitutional
    war in Libya and

    Obama still attacked three months longer, because he said it
    is not modern to

    interpret the constitution original and after a modern
    constitution, the

    president needs the permission of the UN and the Nato for a
    war and not the

    permission of the congress.

    And so if 2+2 would be always 4, he had lost his job at

    latest July 2011.

    Because with living constitution you, can interpret

    everything.

    Bubbles don’t burst when everyone is calling them bubbles. They burst when you the phrase “this time it’s different”. As far as markets being divorced from reality there is nothing new here. Bull markets are based on emotion, bear markets are based on reality. Markets are in bear markets 10% of the time so whenever the ‘stupid’ market wakes up to what the commodities and industrial metals have been screaming it will fall … but not until its crushed all the bears and sucked the last drop of stupid money off the sidelines into an all-in-long positions.

    It is hard to trust the banking system! They took the tax payers money and really never helped individuals who lost work; so these people could keep their homes until they got on thier feet again. That is what the bail out money was to go for. I realize when a person signs a contract they need to pay off their obligations; but, Much of the world was in a down fall at the same time and people needed help. The banks were given the money through the tax payers, to help people until they got on their feet again. Very few received any help at all. The bail out money that we all paid into through taxes should have gone to the people, not the banks. Some of the banks could not get the investors to work with them to help the people . That is why many people lost their homes. The banks did not own the loans, they just took the money for the investors. Therefore when the banks got the bail out money, they got to keep all most the whole amount. I believe the the investors are part of the banking system, but they keep everything seperate not to get caught. If the governments around the world can take peoples bank accounts, their pensions and 401 k’s then how can there be trust? Say you save for your retirement, who to say that country where your investments are, that they won’t take it; or who is to say if you have it here in America, they won’t take it too?

  • REMAINFREE

    I think it has everything to do with pulling the plug on quantitative easing. That’s the only reason the stock market has continued to do well. That’s why stocks have become divorced from economic reality. Bernanke made gestures about ending QE back around a week and a half ago. (google it). Just the mere suggestion is freaking people out. As a result, the correction will result and interest rates will climb. Stupid money will be wiped out. Soros’ and other smart money pulling out is just another indicator. They have always given us hints about what they plan to do,…we just never pay attention.

  • 007

    Soros is very connected. He seems to gets the inside scoop well before everyone else. He has very powerful friends in high places. I have learned when Soros makes a big position move, you should pay attention. I am hearing from other sources that in the next crash the big banks won’t be bailed out. The plan is to create new world banks. So Soros move seems to make sense and is consistent.

    We are being hollowed out financially on purpose.America’s will has to be broken for us to comply with the global change that is on the way. Study the writings of Marx and others who adhere to his ideology you will see it’s design being played out right before your eyes.If you can get a nation of people financially broke, skeptical if not afraid of their government and all it’s entities along with keeping ignorant people occupied with pop culture and technological gadgetry then you have created society that is ripe for a tyrannical form of government to replace the constitution. Some dude somewhere on a campaign stop once said that he wanted to “radically transform America” ,can’t remember who it was must have slipped my mind?

    Unfortunately normalicy bias is set to claim much of the wealth that Joe america has accumulated in recent index run ups. There is nothing backing this market run up. In general recent positive earning statements lauded on wallstreet can be attributed to current inventory holdings which are being assessed at higher values due to replacement cost inflation. In short those who are in the know (or can see the end in sight) are selling into hard assets and taking physical delivery if them. The lesson we should all take from this is an old one that needs to be relearnd every century or so. To be blunt…if you don’t physically have the hard asset you don’t own it.

    The simple answer, Overvalued
    The complicated answer, Simply Overvalued.
    The same people overvaluing these are the same ones that will benefit from it. Can you guess who that might be?

    It’s good that cash went from the stock market into real estate (SF homes) to clear up the excess because, unlike MBSs, rented homes produce income and people will always need a place to live – people can’t live under a stack of worthless paper securities, and even if markets crash, the homes will still be there…. and they’ll be paid for.
