The mercury is climbing, blossoms are bursting out — so does Wall Street finally get to celebrate a springtime of its own? For eight long months now, a ferocious credit crunch, unprecedented since the Great Depression, has trapped investors in a deep freeze. Not only stocks and real estate, but even some of the (reputedly) safest bonds and money market instruments fell victim to the Arctic blast.
Happily, I’m detecting hints, here and there, of a thaw. It’s taking a lot longer than I had hoped, but we will see the end of this new Ice Age. As a balmier climate sets in, we can look forward to healthy markets again — and a return to the steady, consistent profits we enjoyed from 2003 to around mid-2007.
Five years later, it’s still a bull! Yes, Virginia, it was five long years ago, back in those dark, scandal-ridden days of October 2002, that the stock market launched its first major ascent of the new millennium. And today, even after several blue chip indexes have doubled off that historic low, the
beat goes on — thanks to a big (and very timely) Federal Reserve rate cut.
Incredibly, many investors continue to fret that the end is nigh. But you don’t have to be among them. My work indicates that the market blast-off on September 18 signals a new and exciting chapter in this aging bull’s long life. We’re now cruising on what may turn out to be the last, best moneymaking
streak of the next two or three years.
In this month’s visit, I’ll point you to a handful of stocks uniquely
positioned to lead the advance. (Hint: They’ve got nothing to do with
subprime mortgages, or any mortgages at all, for that matter!) My favorite, a technology titan, looks so cheap that I’m projecting a 25%�35% gain in the next 12 months alone.
Can’t keep a good market down! Stock prices plunged Monday and Tuesday, but then gained back most of their losses, once again proving there are plenty of equity buyers — with plenty of cash — waiting in the wings.
They opened the trap door, but Mr. Market wouldn’t fall through! After yesterday’s searing plunge on Wall Street, the bears were running wild this morning. And they had their way — for about the first hour of trading.
Shallow dips, long climbs — the New Millennium stock market keeps
rocking on! I’m still looking for more of a pullback on Wall Street than we’ve seen so far this summer. But the evidence is clear: This market wants to go higher. Once we round the corner into the fourth quarter, it almost certainly will.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to take advantage of the
remarkable opportunities this unsung�but extremely persistent�bull
market continues to offer us. Even with the Dow bouncing around near an
all-time high, I’m spotting plenty of bargain-priced stocks that should easily generate returns of 20%, 30% and more in the next 12�18 months.
It’s a great time, too, for income investors (especially retirees and folks contemplating retirement soon). One happy effect of the turmoil in the
bond market over the past few months is that cash yields on a wide range of income vehicles have surged. On p. 4, I’ll point you to several of my
favorites, with up-front yields as high as 8%�9% plus capital gains potential to boot. I’m shoveling these investments into my own pension fund as fast as I can, and I invite you to do the same.
Rodney Dangerfield may be gone, but Wall Street’s “I don’t get no respect” bull market is keeping his legacy alive. Dow at another new all-time high? Shrug. Takeovers spiking stocks left and right? Yawn. We’re in the midst of what ought to be a rollicking party, and most of the guests are half-asleep!
To be honest with you, I’m delighted with this state of affairs. It suggests that the advance will last longer, and climb to far greater heights, than the majority of observers now expect. When this bull is ready to keel over, it will be from too much revelry�not an excess of caution.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to pinpoint the safest, most value-packed stocks in this underappreciated market. Remarkably, some of my top candidates are household names, giants “hidden in plain sight.” I’ve got three for you that could easily pop 20%�30% in the coming year, with even bigger gains down the road.
Welcome it with open arms! After streaking ahead for seven weeks in a row, stock prices finally cracked this week.
This month, find out why the stock market is primed for a strong, sustainable growth cycle starting sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. I’ll
show you how to make the most of the lucrative—yet in many ways “different”—bull market I see unfolding. To help you get your ducks
in a row, I’ll name my top three industry groups, with my #1 stock pick in each for potential gains of 60%-80% and more by late 2008 or early 2009.
I’ve also included a long list of ill-fated stocks and mutual funds to cut loose as quickly as possible.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you what kinds of stocks and funds are worth a bite. Hint: The safest investments today, with the best upside potential in an erratic market, are those that return large amounts of cash to you in short order. The cash may take various forms (a plump dividend, for example, or a large stock buyback). But if you’re serious about building wealth in 2006, your motto should be: “Let me see the money now.”
Thar she blows! We’ve been waiting ohhh-so-patiently for the stock market to complete a top (and head down to more attractive levels for buying). Well, today’s action leaves little doubt that the top is finally in.
