At the time of this writing, members of Principles are up over 7% inside of a month, or 84% annualized. Does that sound unrealistic to you? It should, because its not typical, especially for the average investor that hopes to experience 6 to 8 percent in a year, let alone a single month.
Irrespective of whether you actually believe it is possible, think about how early investors of BYND felt (see below chart). This stock rallied 418% in a few months from its IPO price of $40 dollars to close to $240. Do you think those investors said "This can't be true, someone please stop this"....? Maybe they thought of donating the profits to charity because it rose so fast and they felt guilty about making so much money?
Or, how about SHOP investors (see below). Its chart looks more like the trajectory of a rocket ship from $120 at the start of 2019 to north of $407 in late August, eventually gaining 241% in roughly nine months of trading. Those investors were definitely phoning the SEC to make sure the company was in compliance with FCC or whoever, right?
The point of this discussion is to help you realize that it doesn't matter what you, me or anyone actually thinks about a company, commodity, bond or a particular market. Because anything is possible, its YOUR job as an investor and better yet a human to go with the flow.
If you really need a metaphor to solidify the message, think about surfing and how successful you would be if you were out of sync with the waves. Or, how about if you decided to be out of sync with gravity by stepping off a skyscraper ---- SPLAT.
Here's the latest chart (see below) that only members are privy to...and I share not because it can't be used in an actionable way, but because if you follow the blog chain from "Fire or Fire Sale?" (https://www.principles1.com/post/fire-or-fire-sale-on-stocks) you can see what this site is all about and how to start looking at the markets from a more OPEN perspective. Then maybe, just maybe, you may begin to realize that anything is possible whether its good, bad, or indifferent to your accounts, cash flow, what your parents think, whether its democratic or republican, whether it coincides with global warming or whatever...
Let me know what you think and PLEASE don't take my word for it or judge me based upon a single qualification on a CV, or something I accomplished in middle school or even something from last year...we are only as good as our last challenge bested.
The truth is, if a so-called professional can't show you in real-time where a particular stock or market is headed, then they are guessing (and sadly most are because they have mastered a skill set in sales, relation building, or just a slick haircut, as opposed to reading the markets which can take a lifetime to develop).
If you don't believe investing can be this simple -- then set up a time on our calendar for a "7 minute non-pitch" where you can pick any stock and we'll show you how to buy, sell or hold it like a hedge fund manager (a really savvy one, not the guy in his parent's basement writing code for an algo that works for a month then blows up).
Or just keep making the same mistakes so the pros can keep eating your lunch. Either way ----> It's Your Time, Your Money and Ultimately Your Choice.
We wish you the best on your journey to becoming a more opportunistic investor!
