Marc Faber: Invest Where Fed Has Least Impact

Now that the Federal Reserve has painted itself into a counter it will have difficulty getting out of, it's uncertain how long it will continue to stimulate and keep interest rates at artificial lows.

Also part of the larger problem is the decision for other major economies to print money as well, with ECB, Bank of Japan and China all using their central banks as an attempted means to boost their economies. None of it is working, and so the question now is where should investors place their money in a world of economic stimulus.

Marc Faber believes he has the answer, as he says the stimulus party is now over because asset prices will drop if stimulus efforts are stopped, and if the central banks continue stimulating, which they will for some time, the economies of the countries or regions will remain weak.

The problem is these countries refuse to allow the economy to heal itself; attempting to prop them up wit funny money while their respective currencies continue to plunge in value because of the resultant debasement. It's no different than the giant banks being allowed to fail when the opportunity arose for them to do so.

Faber recommends investors to look for areas where the Federal Reserve especially has minimum effect. Interestingly, one suggestion is telecom companies in Europe, and companies residing in places like Vietnam.

One the fallout comes from the stimulus measures, Faber sees nowhere to go for profits except places where there is lower impact from the actions of the central banks.
