On Wednesday, I covered what makes these markets look safer than they really are.
They’re being lead ever-higher by behemoth leadership stocks while the VIX plumbs ever-lower lows. Investors are doing very little hedging. Some of the bricks-and-mortar retail companies we’ve targeted are getting an extension put on their death sentence as they’re being lifted with the rising tide.
But that doesn’t mean that these companies are suddenly better. And it doesn’t mean that the positions you are already in that are preparing for their demise are now worthless.
Somehow, politics have had little effect on day-to-day markets. It’s been driven by better earnings and better growth, (both domestically and globally). We have nowhere to go but up. Institutions have nowhere else to go, pension funds have nowhere else to go… Where else would you put your money?
On his latest appearance on Varney & Co., Shah Gilani gives a month-by-month forecast for the next several months. He’s been right so far, so the smart money would listen to what he has to say. He also covers Apple Inc.‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) latest move, why he’s sticking with Target Corp. (NYSE:TGT), and how he would play Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN). Click now to watch…
For months, I’ve been telling you that the markets are headed higher.
A side effect is that they would likely take some of our targeted bricks-and-mortar retail losers higher as well, making those crappy stocks appear ripe for a real turnaround.
That’s exactly what we’ve seen – an across-the-board rally that’s inflating the stocks we know are headed south.
Today, I want to take a deep dive into the market rally, tell you why some crappy retail stocks are going along for the ride, and show you why they will not continue to rise with the rest of the markets.
Mark this one down in your history books, folks. On Wednesday, the Dow broke through 22,000… Just as Shah Gilani predicted.
On this historic appearance on Varney & Co., Shah watched his vision come true and said just where he sees the market going next. He also shares what to look forward to with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Amazon.Com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) creating more jobs, politics’ effect on the markets, and what the car sales slump means for Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA). Click now to watch…
Everyone wants to find that one stock they can get rich and retire on. It’s the dream, and it’s fun to fantasize about.
However, the reality is that you’re as likely to find “the one” as you are the Holy Grail.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. You absolutely should… Just not in the way you probably think.
Not only is it fun trying to find “the one” stock that’s going to make you rich, it can also be very fruitful.
Chances are you’re not going to find “the one,” but that shouldn’t stop you from building a portfolio of wannabes. Your millionaire-maker might be in there, but even if it isn’t, you can still hit it out of the park with a solid portfolio of ten or twenty winners.
While it’s obviously important to have winners in your portfolio, what’s talked about far less is how to avoid losers.
If you can avoid dead weight, your chances of building a monster portfolio are far greater than you ever imagined.
Here’s one stock you’ll never hit a home run with, and how to keep any other losers out of your portfolio…
