I'm hearing from a lot of investors right now who are concerned that "there's nothing to buy" – most of which is driven by two things:
- That prices have risen to record levels
- That the headlines are so negative
I heard similar comments in late 1999, and again in 2007, too. Yet the right companies continued to be solid investments. And, not surprisingly, they remain so.
Altria Group Inc. (NYSE: MO), one of my favorites, for example, has returned a staggering 2,892% since Jan. 3, 2000. That's enough to turn every $10,000 invested back then into $299,200 today.
My point is that there's always a lot more value in the markets than people think, even with prices at all-time highs – if you know what to look for.
Here's the secret…
1. Change your perspective and start looking away from all the things traditionally used to value a stock like Wall Street does, and instead look through the eyes of a CEO. They're the ones tasked with real-world results, real-world progress, and real-world profits.
