Marc Faber has 25 percent of his Assets in Equities
I don't know how the world will look in five years, so I have heeded Ray Dalio's advice to diversify. [Dalio of Bridgewater Associates.] I keep 25% of my assets in equities. I haven't shorted anything yet, although I am tempted to short the S&P or the Russell 2000. I don't own U.S. stocks, but I hold some Asian shares, including Singapore real-estate investment trusts, which I will discuss momentarily. Markets in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand have quadrupled from their post crisis lows, and aren't attractive any more. But I still hold some shares in these markets with relatively high dividend yields.
Marc Faber is an international investor known for his uncanny predictions of the stock market and futures markets around the world.
