The worst is over. Of that, I’m confident.
This does not mean that the bear market is over – not by a long shot. The market could remain rocky for a while longer, or simply go nowhere, up or down.
But even when the stock market averages are going nowhere, it’s possible to make huge gains in individual stocks. Selectivity is the key.
With all that in mind, I want to share my core investing philosophy that can help you learn how to make money in almost any market…
Apple to SHOCK World with Project Titan
These days, it seems like all Apple does is upgrade the iPhone a little bit each year and call it a day.
It almost feels like Apple has run out of ideas… and is past its prime when it comes to bringing to life revolutionary tech that impacts the world.
But that may quickly change… because after over seven months of research…
Luke Lango, the analyst who was ranked as America’s #1 Stock Picker in 2020 by TipRanks…
Is more confident than ever that Apple is about to unveil a new product that could completely transform the way with think of Apple as a company forever.
It goes by the code name “Project Titan”…
And according to Barron’s… “Wall Street Is Obsessed With [Project Titan].”
An Oldie But a Goodie
That philosophy, stated simply, is: Buy low, sell high.
“Buying low” is the essential ingredient of every contrarian strategy that invests in stocks or sectors when they are depressed – and then sells them when they are riding high.
This strategy has succeeded brilliantly for decades, if not centuries.
“Buy low, sell high” sounds so simplistic that it feels almost moronic. Yet few investors manage to achieve this objective consistently.
Why is that?
The answer relates to those two key traits I told you every investor needs: discipline and patience.
Far too often, we buy too high… and then sell too low. (Panic selling, anyone?)
We know what reason says we should do, but we follow our emotions. We lack the discipline and patience necessary to pursue a prudent long-term strategy.
To outperform the market, an investor must maintain the discipline of saying “no” to bad risks… and then keep on doing that until good risks come along.
It’s not easy.
It’s hard to say “no” to high-flying stocks when everyone else is saying “yes.” It’s like leaving a cocktail party while it’s still going strong.
But as the old expression goes, “No good decision is ever made after midnight.” Similarly, no good investment is ever made after the stock market becomes richly priced and loses momentum.
You must have the discipline to say “no” to bad risks and the patience to wait for better opportunities.
10X Bigger Than the iPhone, MacBook, and iPad?
Forget iPhones, MacBooks, and iPads… Apple’s Project Titan could be 10X bigger than all of them COMBINED. The analyst who was ranked as America’s #1 Stock Picker in 2020 by TipRanks details the huge 40X opportunity behind what could be Apple’s biggest project yet. Click here for more details.
It’s All About Self-Control
Bad risks are when the potential upside is much smaller than the potential downside. That’s why they’re called “asymmetrical risks.”
In the financial markets, many asymmetrical risks seem as benign as jaywalking, which is why so many investors take asymmetrical risks every day… and never even know it, until harm comes their way.
They behave like jaywalkers. If they don’t see any oncoming danger, they step out into the street and start crossing.
“It’s the smart thing to do,” they say to themselves. “Why just stand here doing nothing, when I could be moving ahead?”
Admittedly, the jaywalker usually arrives earlier at his destination than the non-jaywalker. And the investor who buys high often makes profits that cautious investors would have missed.
But both bets are bad. Not because the risk of a bad outcome is so high, but because the magnitude of the potential bad outcome is so high.
These are asymmetric risks.
Disciplined investors understand the dangers of these risks. That’s why they begin their analysis by asking “What can go wrong?” rather than “What can go right?”
Disciplined investors understand that investing is optional and that they must be selective.
That’s how you can make money in almost any market.
