A Two-Pronged Approach to the Markets

By John Del Vecchio  |  January 6, 2020

The new decade ushered in a massive volatility spike. Killing Major General Qassem Soleimani was enough to finally wake up the markets from its low volatility — now on the rise nearly daily. It’s a reminder that it’s a big world out there. Plenty of dangers lurk around any given corner.

Markets have climbed the wall of worry. On the earnings front, it’s been ignored that stock buybacks are major contributor to earnings growth.

Meanwhile, revenues moderate and profit margins are near peak levels. Valuations are stretched.

We are bogged down by artificially low interest rates. It’s clear that the 2020s will look nothing like the Roaring Twenties from a century ago.

So, What Can You Do About It?

At Hidden Fortunes, I have a two-pronged approach, which you can read more about right here.

First, seek yield in a low yield environment. Identify stocks that have upside due to reasonable valuations. This has led to some recent gains in stocks over 30% in less than six months.

Finding good values in a market this dear is a challenge. Trust me when I tell you that they’re out there. They’re just hidden.

Second, find under-the-radar companies that have the potential for big gains, massive gains, regardless of what the market does. Gains that reach the 500% or more range within a couple years.

Though these positions are new, they have a couple of things in common.

All are priced low. As a result, they fly under the radar of Wall Street, but luckily, they’re just the kind of companies I try and dig up for our readers. This allows the average investor to get a leg up on the massive Wall Street players.

They also focus on data. Regardless of whether we have trade wars, combat wars, a recession, or any number of events that could set the market back, the companies that control data will become more valuable.

More Data, More Wealth…

The value of data increases by the day. It increases exponentially.

Data helps companies in a variety of industries: mining, retail, national security…

With all of the volatility in the world, national security — think securing the border — are top of mind. Hidden Fortunes’ recent recommendations operate in areas that provide secure data.

All it takes for an under-the-radar company to see its stock skyrocket is one piece of news.

A new contract.

A new patent.

A strategic relationship.

All of the recent recommendations are on the cusp of these events happening.
