[The Second of Two Parts] – We set the stage for 2017 in last week's column with a look at the investing backdrop that will drive profits this year. And, as part of that, we talked briefly about the unseen mental challenge that will trip up most investors who don't see it coming.
Today we're going to dive deeper into the strategic implications driving each of our six Unstoppable Trends as well as their relative influence on our strategy in the months ahead.
For the simple reason that, in recorded history, more billionaires have been created around these six Unstoppable Trends than any other trend not on the list.
Frankly, I'm more excited than I have been in years.
Every Dollar You'll Earn in Your Investing Lifetime Is on This List
I want you to step back for a moment and really think about what I'm about to say…
…for all the complicated stuff going on around us and as challenging as our future may be, the world is actually a pretty simple place.
I say that because, if you look through history and you study our past, it becomes very clear that humanity has always and will always be driven by six Unstoppable Trends. Of course, there are offshoots, sub trends and even counter trends, but pretty much every dollar you'll make for the rest of your investing lifetime ties back to at least one of 'em. Perhaps several.
Play on the edges or on the fringes and you may get lucky. But build your core investments around these concepts and the companies that embody them, and odds are that you will do very, very well because each of these six things is propelled by trillions of dollars. They're unstoppable and they're global, which means the playing field is wide open.
That's obviously a bold statement, which is why, as you might imagine, I've got loads of examples to back up what I'm saying and prove my point in the months ahead, just as we have since launching Total Wealth.
Never forget that capital is a creative force. It wants to grow. You just have to let it, by using the right combination of selection and risk management. Most investors don't look at their money this way, but I find that's often simply a matter of perspective.
Most investors consider themselves fortunate to ride one major trend in their investing lifetime. My goal is to teach you how to do that consistently with everything you own – and I promise not to tell anyone if you feel like laughing all the way to the bank either!
Starting with six Unstoppable Trends backed by trillions in spending that Wall Street cannot hijack, the Fed cannot derail, and Washington couldn't stop if it tried:
