So it finally happened. The stock market’s Energizer Bunny keeled over. All right, what now?
Legions of investors are groping in the dark, unnerved and uncertain of their next move. Not you and I. We were expecting a timeout for the bull—and we’re taking full advantage of it.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to use the recent unsettled market conditions to fine-tune your portfolio for greater profits. Bargain-priced stocks are popping up all over, including two blue chip stalwarts from our model portfolio that now offer potential returns of 20% or more in the coming year with much lower risk than normal.
I’m also warming again to global investing (a very successful theme of ours in the past couple of years). After a brief absence, we’re back buying China and India, the two most powerful growth engines of the developing world. If you prefer a more diversified approach, I’ve got a pair of globetrotting mutual funds—both among the best in their class—that will take you anywhere you could want to go.
The financial news media are bristling these days with forecasts for the New Year. No surprise there; it’s a common occurrence in December — and, most years, a harmless enough exercise. I’ve been known to throw out a few fearless predictions myself!
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to fatten your portfolio regardless of who wins. Hint: Both candidates will grapple with the same set of economic challenges in 2005, so you can make a tidy fortune if you understand what those are (and how they’re likely to be dealt with). We’re already preparing for the road ahead by pocketing profits of more than 90% on our small-cap stocks while shifting cash into bonds, high-yielding blue chip stocks and even a low-risk “hedge fund.”
