Will oil experience a turnaround, and will private prisons survive?

While stocks and the market in general have remained at record highs, several big problems are brewing, and they could wreak havoc on your investments.

Recently the Dow has sunk more than 100 points, and oil has dropped below the $45 threshold. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama and his administration are intent on ruining more jobs by destroying the private prison industry. Could this be a pipedream for Obama and the liberals, or will companies such as GEO (GEO) and Corrections Corporation of America (CXW) be put out of business in the coming years?

In the second calendar quarter of 2015, the KEELEY Small-Mid Cap Value Fund (KSMVX) fell 3.13 percent compared to a 1.27 percent decline for the Russell 2500 Value Index. The equity markets continued to focus primarily on global uncertainty (notably the situation in Greece) which weighed on the markets’ ability to move forward.

Strubel Investment Management‘s Dumb Investment of the Week for this week focuses on the private for-profit prison industry.

Since you know I happily invest in tobacco companies, alcoholic beverage manufacturers, and defense contractors, you know that the private prison industry must be pretty rotten if even I won’t invest in it.

The industry appears to operate a fundamentally flawed business model and seems thoroughly corrupt from top to bottom. We believe it is just a matter of time before Chaucer’s old adage about evil deeds being found out (“Murder will out, certain, it will not fail”) comes true.

There are some companies that work in distasteful industries. Companies like payday lenders, mortuaries and waste management services just aren't the sexy companies people get excited about. Some even get on a soapbox and proclaim these businesses to be unethical and immoral. But the simple fact is that investors can earn outsized returns by investing in these businesses. And who wouldn't want that? I know I would, and I know Peter Lynch hit several home runs doing the same thing, like with death service provider [b]Service Corp International (SCI)[/b] and garbage collector [b]Waste Management Inc.

Interesting data from your federal government: The average wage of the 15.2 million employees in California, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, is $48,090. That's about $23.12 an hour. Very low on the scale: Private security guards, at $25,950. Also bailiffs, who earn just under $49,000. Yet relatively high on the scale is state prison guards, who can, with overtime, easily earn more than $100,000 a year. By contrast, a kindergarten teacher in the Golden State can expect to pull down an average $56,540. If that makes you crazy, try this statistic on for size: Fully 9.5% of

There are also examples of overpopulation, like in California’s prison system which provides room for growth opportunities. Ackman thinks that CXW's stock
