The secret to successful and profitable investing in 2018 is very simple… stick with what works.
In fact, I made an appearance on FOX Business Network's "The Intelligence Report" this past week and discussed just that. Click here to see it.
Coming off an extraordinarily profitable 2017, sticking with what works means lining up with the six Unstoppable Trends we follow, buying only the best, "must-have" companies making goods and offering services the world can't live without, and managing risk like a hawk – just in case the markets have other ideas.
Since 2007, the key to big returns has been quality, and I don't see that changing any time soon. Companies like the "Big As" – Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) – should be core portfolio positions. That way you're in line to profit from companies creating, generating, and adapting to new technologies that offer the biggest rewards.
The other thing to think about is that it's better to let those companies run with your money than it is to take a chance on lesser alternatives, where blowing up your portfolio is a very real risk. For now, that means big tech, big defense, and big medicine.
Success in 2018 is also about resisting the temptation to second guess the markets. I make a big deal about taking emotions out of the equation by using a rules-based investing approach like the one we follow for a reason… it works and it's profitable.
Here's my thinking…
- Money is on the move and there are plenty of great companies out there with gobs of profit potential. My job is to help you find 'em and profit.
- I released my first Money Map Report recommendation of the year. It's a company that could almost singlehandedly unleash a jaw-dropping $50 trillion in global production over the next decade. Click here to get your copy now.
- Not coincidentally, that recommendation goes hand in hand with the single most important robotics company on the planet – a company I told you about last week. Make sure you check it out!
