Ted Bauman joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013 and is editor of The Bauman Letter, Bauman Daily and Profit Switch. He lives in Atlanta, GA with his family.

Ted has spent his entire life helping people secure and keep their wealth … and their freedom and independence … starting with himself. Banyan Hill is a natural extension of his quest.

Born in Washington, D.C. and raised on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Ted emigrated to South Africa as a young man in search of adventure. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Cape Town with postgraduate degrees in economics, economic history and politics.

During his 25-year career in South Africa, Ted served a variety of executive roles in the nonprofit sector, primarily as a fund manager for low-cost housing projects. One effort he helped found, Slum Dwellers International, has gone on to help over 14 million people in 35 countries.

During the 2000s, Ted worked as a consultant, researching and writing extensively on finance, housing and urban planning issues for clients as diverse as the United Nations, the World Bank, the South African government and European grant-making agencies. In 2008, he returned to the U.S. where he served as Director of International Housing Programs for Habitat for Humanity International. He left in 2013 to work full-time as a researcher and writer.

Ted’s career has taken him all over the world. He has visited more than 80 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. These experiences have taught Ted that it’s possible for anyone to grow their wealth and live the life they’ve always dreamed of. He brings his commitment to this goal in his monthly newsletter, The Bauman Letter.

He is regularly quoted in financial publications including Barron’sForbesMarketWatchThe Guardian and Benzinga, as well as on financial TV. He has also published articles in international journals including the Journal of Microfinance, Small Enterprise Development, and Environment and Urbanization. In addition to his own book, Endless Income, he also co-authored the book Where to Stash Your Cash Legally with his father and former U.S. Congressman, Robert Bauman.

Ted's Articles

formula to investing The Formula for Limiting Losses - I was great at buying the right stocks but was still a terrible investor. Maybe it’s the same for you? For example, in October 2016, I bought Advanced Micro Devices (Nasdaq: AMD). I looked like a genius. AMD gained over 1,000% since I bought into the stock. But I missed all of those gains! So much for looking like a genius. What happened? Simply put: I trusted my gut. And it cost me a lot of lost gains. So how do we stop that from happening to you?
portfolio rising Implementing Risk Parity in Your Portfolio - Ray Dalio, billionaire hedge fund manager, uses risk parity at his quant-based hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates. That’s because it makes all the difference in the world to your investing success. It’s the concept of investing based on allocation of risk using volatility instead of other commonly known techniques (such as market cap). You buy the same stocks, but you put LESS money into higher volatility (riskier) plays and MORE money into lower volatility (less risky) ones. Then you sleep much better at night! Your goal is to have your portfolio as a whole rise over time, with the least amount of fluctuation along the way. But to make this easy, you need…
master of your fate Who Is Master of YOUR Fate?
September 20, 2021 Bauman Daily, U.S. Economy
- I’ve emphasized the centrality of U.S. government policy to your investments for 18 months. Whether it’s the Federal Reserve, stimulus payments, infrastructure bills or the fight against COVID, what the public sector does has had an outsized influence on stock prices. In theory anyway, the people making those decisions are accountable to us as citizens, taxpayers and voters. But the last few weeks show that decision-makers who aren’t accountable to anyone can have a far greater impact.
physical goods shortage culprit Shortages and Inflation: They’re Hiding THIS From You!
September 17, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- Shortages in physical goods are everywhere. We’re already hearing warnings that the limited number of ocean shipping containers will make holiday shopping difficult this year. Lack of materials is hurting home builders. The price of beef is rising because there just isn’t enough for everyone. Many believe we have COVID-19 to blame for this. But there is something far more sinister going on here. In today’s video, Ted pulls back the curtain to reveal the real culprits behind these shortages … what we can expect going forward … and how we’ll pay the ultimate price.
lightbulb IoT industry A Lightbulb Moment for the IoT Industry
September 14, 2021 Bauman Daily, Economy, Investing
- As any economics textbook will tell you, capitalism is all about competition. Every company wants to make a better product at a lower price compared to its rivals. They compete for the best talent. When inputs are scarce, they bid furiously against each other for them. But one of the most remarkable facts about capitalism is that some of the biggest and most profitable breakthroughs came from cooperation...
renewables ways to profit Renewables Resurgence? 4 Plays to Profit
September 10, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- After pulling back steadily for months, Thursday saw a big jump in renewables stocks. This prompts the question: is it time to start buying back into this sector? Consider that solar produced less than 4% of the energy in the U.S. last year. Also, consider that the Biden Administration wants to take that level to 45% by 2050. That would be an enormous jump. So, in today’s video, Ted answers that question … and then gives details on how to go about it in a smart way.
cash is king Right Now, Cash Is King
September 7, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- The trend is clear. When the market starts getting “toppy,” insiders at technology companies stop buying their own shares. Corporate executives know what’s going on in their industries better than anyone else. Every quarter, they must tell the market what they think about their own prospects in an official filing. But they can buy and sell shares in their own company at any time. That makes insider purchases a critical data point for investors. That’s the lowest level of insider buying over the last five years. This is powerful evidence of something I’ve been saying all summer. Right now, smart investors should be buying quality companies. That means strong balance sheets, recession-proof revenues and above all, strong free cash flow. Here’s the evidence.
growth stocks vs lottery tickets Which Is Better: Growth Stocks or Lottery Tickets?
September 3, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- Growth stocks are back in recent weeks. After a difficult first half, shares of “next big thing” companies are rebounding. Fed Chairman Powell’s “hold the course” speech helped. But is this a signal to jump back into companies that may only produce a profit years from now? A recent article from leading research outfit GMO gives five reasons — based on historical evidence — why now may be the riskiest time in two decades to do just that.
fixed income money We’ll Pay You to Take Our Money
August 31, 2021 Bauman Daily, Economy, Investing
- What if the Federal Reserve tried to give away money … and nobody wanted it? That’s exactly what’s happening. Last week, the stock market behaved as it always does in the run-up to a big Fed announcement. Stocks traded sideways all week. Then on Friday, when Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank wasn’t going to be changing anything soon, everyone started buying again. This is a familiar routine. It’s based on the assumption that the Fed has the power to raise or lower interest rates by buying bonds out of the market in exchange for cash injections. But what if that assumption is wrong?
investment catastrophe or hidden opportunity Investment Catastrophe or Hidden Opportunity? - Today, I decided to continue the theme by addressing another difficult part of an investment writer’s job: the model portfolio. A model portfolio lists all the current and closed positions in an investment service like The Bauman Letter, Profit Switch and Flashpoint Fortunes (or the exciting new service that “Mr. Bullseye” Clint Lee is about to launch that lets you see a countdown before a stock slingshots upward). This gives subscribers a view of the service’s track record. But in a trading environment like 2021, model portfolios can be misleading … especially when they obscure the potential for much better gains.
