Since early 2013 Ted Bauman has been an editor at Banyan Hill Publishing. He writes about investing with an eye towards low-risk strategies and protecting assets. Earlier in his career, he spent several years in South Africa where he was an executive for a number of nonprofits. He is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, earning degrees in economics and history, and has a degree in business administration he earned at the State University of New York. He also attended Georgia State University, graduating in 2001 with an MBA in finance.
In one of his recent articles, Ted Bauman wrote about three possible outcomes from the next crash in the US stock market. He says that he sees the stock market in the United States as quite overvalued. He says that the S&P currently has a CAPE ratio of 32 which nearly matches its record level. The only time the CAPE has been higher is just before the dot-com recession of 2000. Ted Bauman says that the normal ratio is about 17 which means that if the US stock market reverts to mean the value of it will drop by about 35%. This is the first way he sees the recession as playing out.
The second way is if in the bond market short-term yields start to exceed longer-term yields which is a sure-fire sign that the US stock market will soon enter a bear market. Ted Bauman says he can also see a crash in the markets, a partial recovery, and then another collapse. He says in this scenario investors should wait it out rather than making decisions in panic-mode.
Ted Bauman is going to be one of the featured speakers at the upcoming Total Wealth Symposium 2018. He plans to touch on a number of topics such as how to protect assets, invest conservatively, and maintain privacy from the eyes of the government and large corporations. He has promoted this appearance on his social media accounts such as on his Facebook page and on Twitter.
