Owning great stocks is important, beyond a doubt, but to get the absolute most out of those holdings - to pack your portfolio with serious, market-beating performance - you've got to be ready to trim back the dead wood.
Having the wrong stocks in the mix can eat away at those all-important long-term returns.
The good news is there's no need to resort to guesswork or potshots when deciding which stocks to sell at what price, not to mention if and when to buy back in.
This past Friday, in one of my regular "Buy, Sell, or Hold" video segments, I told my Total Wealth readers exactly which popular stocks they should sell ASAP.
Not only that, but I named which puts to sell to rake in a big quarterly profit on the Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS), whose shares got a big "Hold" rating from me this week.
For that trade, and the list of stocks to unload pronto, take a look...
Now that I've set you up for market success in the immediate future, I hope to set you up for exponential gains potential you'll likely never see in stocks, options, or even cryptocurrencies.
Get ready for something extraordinary.
Right here, I'm pulling back the curtain on "pre-IPO rights," which I think is the best-kept secret in the investing world. These are market instruments that should be on front pages and radar screens everywhere, but they're still tucked away in poorly understood corners of the market. It's possible to invest in many of them for $1, and in exceptional cases, the "pre-IPO rights" have seen peak gains of 2,088%, 6,566%, 8.280%, 9,075%, even 27,550% when these companies go public. I'll tell you more about what's going on right here.
About the Author
Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor's 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in "the pit" as a market maker.
The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX - to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd's TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company's "listed" and OTC trading desks.
Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.
Shah's vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story - when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.
Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.
Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business's Varney & Co.
