Clint Lee is the investment research analyst for The Bauman Letter and Profit Switch. He is also creator and editor of Flashpoint Fortunes and Slingshot Profits. And he regularly contributes to Bauman Daily.

Born in rural Ohio, Clint discovered his passion and talent for investment and market analysis, and stock picking, as soon as he started high school. During the dot-com bubble and burst, he helped pick profitable stocks for family friends. He also regularly participated in online investing competitions.

Starting in 2004, Clint began to provide investment research for some of the largest institutions in the world. Since then, he has successfully managed more than $2 billion in assets for his clients. He also led a fund that the U.S. News & World Report recognized as the No. 1 fund in its category in 2019.

Clint is first and foremost a numbers guy. One of the “quants.” But he also studies the fundamentals and charts. In fact, he has an uncanny ability to merge these specialties into one powerful market and investment approach. This “structured creativity,” as he calls it, infiltrates every aspect of Clint’s life, evidenced not only in his success in the markets and investing, but also in his love for cooking and coaching his kids in sports.

It’s how Clint ticks. And as such, it keeps him rigidly disciplined. This is infinitely valuable to his readers and subscribers. Clint keeps them on point with his strategy and helps them ignore the noise and emotion that leads to bad investment decisions.

He received his MBA from Case Western University, a top-ranked program. He has also earned several other important designations that demonstrate his commitment to analyzing investments from all angles by combining fundamentals and technical analysis.

how to profit from volatility Profit During Volatility With This Little-Known Indicator - I can get pretty geeked out by stock market figures and stats. Like yesterday’s action, for example. The S&P 500 Index was down 4% at one point. Yet it managed to rally and ended the day in positive territory. It was a rally for the record books, for sure. That’s only the third time in the last 45 years that markets have recovered so fast from such a steep decline in the same day! But yesterday’s epic display of percentage losses and gains in the S&P 500 aren’t the only ones I find interesting...
stock market is losing it's skittles The Stock Market Is Losing Its Skittles
January 19, 2022 Bauman Daily, Investing
- After finally receiving a decent snowfall in Ohio this weekend, I did what I normally do. I took my kids sledding at a nearby park. Down the hill, then charging back up … rinse and repeat. I did my best to keep up with them, but I eventually ran out of gas, while I marveled […]
growth stock sales Beware the Stock Market’s Growth Stock Sale - When it comes to toying with your emotions, there’s probably no place worse than the stock market. That’s because our instincts and built-in tendencies serve us poorly as investors. There’s even a growing field to study and explain these “behavioral biases.” Some are well-documented, like herding. That’s where investors just follow what everyone else is doing (which is a bad idea, of course).But there’s another instinct I’m seeing a lot more of lately. And like all the others we fall prey to, when followed blindly, it can do real damage to your portfolio. That is: the urge to buy something on sale.
alpha dog of the dow Invest in This Alpha Dog of the Dow - Things are hard to find these days. COVID tests and face masks are in short supply. And a shortage of bus drivers is affecting my local school district. Some things are hard to find in the stock market as well … especially for income investors. The yield on the S&P 500 is a measly 1.3%.The 10-year Treasury yield is only 1.67%.Factor in inflation and those figures drop into negative territory. Your income isn’t keeping up with rising prices. You can look for yield in riskier assets such as high-yield bonds. But the “risk premium” is near historic lows. You’re not getting paid enough to justify it. Finding a good yield is becoming more like a treasure hunt … with investors scouring over hard-to-read maps. That’s why it’s time to revisit one popular strategy for clues.
2022 stock market prediction 2022: The Big Picture
December 29, 2021 Bauman Daily, Economy, News
- “Predictably unpredictable.” That’s 2021 in a nutshell. The last month was a real doozy. We’ve had a suddenly resurgent pandemic, a major Federal Reserve pivot and stocks swinging in all directions. Many of those same variables will stay in play for the stock market as we head into 2022. Ted put together a terrific list of what to watch for. So, for my 2022 predictions, I pondered a few big-picture challenges and opportunities that lay ahead. Let's get the obstacles out of the way first...
2021 lessons learned The No. 1 Lesson From 2021 - No, I’m not talking about Christmas … which is only three days away, according to my youngest son’s daily update. It’s the arrival of investment outlook guides. Whether it’s email or snail mail, I’m receiving several every day this week, each divining what 2022 has in store. I thoroughly enjoy these pieces, especially hearing how other predictions may conflict with my own forecasts for the year ahead. But something is missing. Before jumping into predictions, I wish there was more reflection on the year we’re about to complete. After all, you can learn a great deal reflecting on these experiences … whether it’s about yourself or your investment process .And as I look back on 2021, I keep arriving at one simple theme.
time to sell stocks Time to Cash Out? - Break out the games! Every year, when my kids start their Christmas break, we tend to play a lot more games as a family to pass the cold winter days. We have our favorites. Cashing Out The world’s richest often make splashy headlines for their splurges. This time around, it’s about what they’re selling. That’s […]
Shake It Up With This Leading ETF - "A what?" That’s the response from my 10-year-old when I asked if he’s ever played with an Etch A Sketch. As he toyed with his iPad, I told him it’s the original tablet that you simply shook to start over. Which makes it the perfect tablet for writing a script for this stock market — shake it and start over! It sure would be nice if a script like that did exist. Some have even tried to assume that the economic cycle follows some nice plot with stock market sectors responding on cue. But it’s never that simple...
recipe for investing volatile market The Perfect Recipe for a Volatile Market - Now, anyone who enjoys toiling in the kitchen has their favorite foods. For me, just about any Cajun dish will do. And in the world of Cajun cooking, you quickly learn that the “holy trinity” of onion, bell pepper and celery are the foundation for many recipes. In the same way, you need that trinity — that backbone — for a solid foundation that underpins your investment outlook. You’re in luck. You might not get to taste any of my Cajun dishes soon, but I can give you that investment foundation...
stock valuations Find Balance in Stocks, Not Your Stomach - But the notion of finding balance elsewhere does have its appeal … especially in my retirement portfolio. That’s because this has been a year marked by extremes for investors. There’s evidence of that everywhere. Valuations are either the most expensive or the cheapest ever, depending on where you look...
