Legendary Stock-Picker Predicts Best-Performing Stock of 2020

Double-Digit Gains in the S&P 500 Index Over the Next Year?

The fall in the fear gauge is actually a sign of more gains ahead. In fact, you can expect double-digit gains in the S&P 500 Index over the next year, based on what’s happening right now.

By Chris Igou, analyst, True Wealth


In March, the market’s “fear gauge” hit its highest level since 2008.

That was during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. The market was crashing. And folks were terrified.

Today, fear in the market has subsided as stocks close in on new highs. It’s more than that, though…

This fall in the fear gauge is actually a sign of more gains ahead. In fact, you can expect double-digit gains in the S&P 500 Index over the next year, based on what’s happening right now.

Longtime readers know that when I refer to the market’s “fear gauge,” I’m talking about the CBOE Volatility Index (“VIX”).

When uncertainty shows up in the market, people get scared… and the VIX starts to move higher. It can be a great contrarian indicator, showing when folks are giving up on stocks.

Now, we know we want to buy after folks get scared. But remember, uncertainty can always drive the VIX higher than you can imagine.

So instead of just looking at when the VIX hits new highs, we want to see what happens when that fear starts to dissipate.

Again, the VIX spiked in March as pandemic fears took over. But it has fallen recently. While this measure peaked above 80, it’s now below 35 again.

To see what happens when fear subsides, you need to look at every time that the VIX rose above and fell back below a level of 35… like we saw recently. These spikes highlight fear extremes and let us know when things are getting back to normal.

Now that there’s less coronavirus uncertainty in the market, the VIX is back down. Take a look…

You can see the massive spike in the VIX in March. But levels have fallen dramatically since then.

Historically, when the VIX falls back from record highs, it’s a good sign for U.S. stocks. And that means now is actually a great time to buy.

Since 1990, we’ve seen 41 other times that the VIX has rallied above and fallen back below 35. And buying after these extremes often leads to outperformance…

Similar extremes have led to winning trades 82% of the time over the next year. And history shows you can expect solid outperformance compared with a buy-and-hold strategy…

Previous instances have led to 6% gains in six months and a solid 12% gain over the next year. That crushes the typical 7% annual return.

Simply put, the VIX falling back to more normal levels is an “all clear” sign to own stocks, based on history. And that’s happening right now.

It might seem crazy, but now is a fantastic time to buy. History says more gains are likely on the way.

Big Gains for Contrarian Investors?

You should always be a little scared of consensus…

When everyone’s on the same side of a trade, it typically goes against them.

The reason for this is simple: If everyone’s bullish on an idea at the same time, who’s left to buy and push it higher?

The only momentum that’s coming is likely to be lower. And the opposite is true, too…

Investors today are betting that the market will fall. They’re piling into the same shorts. And as the downside bet increases, a market rally becomes that much more likely.

The pessimism we’re seeing now tells me the S&P 500 Index, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite Index are headed higher. If so, it’ll mean big gains for contrarian investors – and big losses for those caught on the short end of the trade.

Short-selling may seem complicated at first. But it’s actually very simple.

To short an investment, you sell it up front, knowing you’ll have to buy it back at a later date. The trick is that you hope to buy it back at a lower price.

If you “sell high and buy low,” you make money on the trade. You’re betting the price will fall.

It’s the reverse of a typical “long” investment – where you buy expecting that the stock will go higher. But there’s another key difference many investors don’t think about…

When a long investment goes against you, your losses are limited. A stock can only fall to zero – it can’t go any lower. But there’s no limit to how high a stock can soar. So when a short investment goes against you, your downside is infinite.

Right now, investors are overwhelmingly bearish on stocks. To see it, let’s look at the most recent Commitment of Traders report…

This is a weekly report produced by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission. It shows us what futures traders are doing with their money.

According to the data, the net short position for the S&P 500 is the largest it has been since 2011. Take a look at the chart below…

Now let’s look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Here, the net short position is the largest on record…

You get the idea. And it’s a similar story with the Nasdaq, too. The net short position increased last week to 1,800 contracts – the largest amount of short interest since 2011.

All this means one thing…

If the stock market keeps going up, all these short traders will need to get out. They’ll need to cover their positions and buy them back.

Typically, that doesn’t happen until it’s too late. At that point, it will be like trying to put out a fire with lighter fluid. Prices could absolutely soar as traders scramble to buy and close their positions.

Importantly, this isn’t the only sign that the market’s pessimism has gone overboard…

It could put up to an extra $5,600 back in your pocket each year.

And will create more new millionaire investors than anything else on the planet.

Here Are The Facts


We can also see it in the recent survey from the American Association for Individual Investors (“AAII”). This poll asks investors where they think the stock market is headed over the next six months. It’s simple – they’re either bullish, bearish, or neutral.

According to the most recent report, 48.9% of respondents were bearish. That’s well above the historical average of 30.5%.

On the other side, bullish sentiment came in at just 24.1%, well below its historical average. This shows individual investors are still scared of the market. They’re not prepared for a move higher.

Bearish investors stand to lose a lot of money when this situation reverses. But you don’t have to be one of them…

As investing legend Warren Buffett likes to say, “Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.”

Today, investors have too much money riding on a move lower. We’re likely to see the opposite. And that tells me it’s time to be greedy.

Teeka Tiwari: My Disturbing Wall Street Discovery

Teeka Tiwari: At the beginning of the second quarter of this year, I noticed a string of strange anomalies in my trading data. The trading action was so far off the norm, I knew there had to be a flaw somewhere in my data collection.

By Teeka Tiwari, editor,  Palm Beach Daily

Sometimes, a $1.4 billion fine is just the price of doing business.

For most companies, it’d be a death blow. But for Wall Street bankers, it’s barely a slap on the wrist.

Let me explain…

After decades of bad behavior, Wall Street’s misconduct truly got out of hand during the dot-com bubble in the late 1990s. It was so bad, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) launched one of the biggest investigations in its history.

In 2003, the SEC hit Wall Street and 10 of its biggest bankers with a $1.4 billion fine.

In one example, analysts from Credit Suisse published false reports on Digital Impact, an early dot-com marketing company. Undisclosed to the public, bankers at Credit Suisse held a stake in the company.

Likely, millions of dollars flowed into Digital Impact’s stock thanks to favorable ratings. All the while boosting the value of Credit Suisse’s stake in the company.

In 2000, the 10 firms charged had made over $213 billion… That’s in just one year.

My Disturbing Discovery

At the beginning of the second quarter of this year, I noticed a string of strange anomalies in my trading data.

Data that had been working for years suddenly went “wonky.” Trades built on sound methods and data started failing.

That’s when my team and I started a three-month journey to get to the bottom of what was happening to the data feeds my subscribers and I rely on.

Big Wall Street firms, hedge fund managers, and big-money men of every ilk were making public statements that had the effect of changing the data we see on our charts.

At the same time, they were relying on a different way to “hide” their activity (much of which was opposite to their stated positions), that it never showed up in the charts you and I rely on.

These aren’t trades you’ll see on the New York Stock Exchange ticker tape. They don’t show up on volume charts. And you’ll never have the chance to get in on them.

In fact, our research suggests 40% of all trading will never show up on the public charts.

No wonder my performance was lagging. The good news is, once I factored this data in, our trading results improved dramatically.

We could see the S&P 500 Index rally double digits over the next year

Stocks rallied more than 10% in April alone. A one-month move like that hasn’t happened since 2011. It turns out, these rare moves have been extremely bullish over the last 70 years. 

By Chris Igou, analyst, True Wealth

It has been a violent ride…

First, we experienced the fastest bear market ever in U.S. stocks. And now, the rally has been just as aggressive.

This kind of whiplash has a lot of folks confused. Even for the investing pros, it’s tough to get a read on what’s next for stocks.

Could the next sharp fall be right around the corner? Or will this market keep heading higher?

Fortunately, recent market action gives us a little insight on how to answer those questions.

You see, stocks rallied more than 10% in April alone. A one-month move like that hasn’t happened since 2011. And it has only happened a handful of times going back to 1950.

It turns out, these rare moves have been extremely bullish over the last 70 years. We could see the S&P 500 Index rally double digits over the next year.

U.S. stocks haven’t looked back since bottoming on March 23. The S&P 500 is up 36% since then.

Rumors of an intensifying trade war and the constant onslaught of coronavirus news could have stopped the rally. But they’ve failed. History now shows us that today’s upward move still has room to run.

Stocks rose again in May, jumping more than 3%. But as the chart shows, the stronger move from stocks was in April. And history tells us how rare it was, too.

A move of 10% or more in a month has happened just 12 times since 1950. And that includes this recent instance. This kind of momentum often leads to more upside as well…

Nine of the previous 11 extremes led to further gains in the S&P 500 over the next year. And it can mean significant outperformance. Check it out…

The broad market has returned nearly 8% a year since 1950. That’s impressive. But buying after moves like this can lead to much better results…

Similar instances have led to 4% gains in three months, 11% gains in six months, and an impressive 12% gain over the next year.

Simply put, buying after a move like we saw in April can turn a boring 7.6% gain into a solid double-digit win over the next year.

Spanish Flu Hints About the Recovery in Stocks

The world of 1918 had some similarities to our “connected” world today. And we can look back at this period in history for clues about how today’s recovery will look. You might be surprised to hear it… but stocks could go a lot higher, even if the economy is slow to recover.

By Enrique Abeyta, editor, Empire Elite Growth


At this point, you’ve likely heard the comparisons with the current coronavirus crisis to the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.

This health crisis began in spring 1918 as a particularly deadly strain of the flu. It soon spread across the globe. It didn’t originate in Spain… but the name stuck because Spain was particularly hard-hit.

The spread of the flu was likely worsened by the end of World War I. American troops returned from Europe and then scattered across the U.S. The world had much less international travel back then, but this mass movement of people helped the disease spread.

So the world of 1918 had some similarities to our “connected” world today. And we can look back at this period in history for clues about how today’s recovery will look.

You might be surprised to hear it… but stocks could go a lot higher, even if the economy is slow to recover.

While certainly different than the current virus, the Spanish flu also had some unique characteristics… For one, it hit adults aged 15 to 44 particularly hard. This is rare in a flu (even a bad one), and it magnified the economic impact.

Medical technology was also less advanced… And the mortality rate was devastating. It infected an estimated 500 million people – more than a quarter of the global population. It also killed as many as 50 million (or by some estimates, 100 million). That’s roughly 3% of the global population.

To put this in perspective – and the coronavirus pandemic isn’t over by any means – we have reportedly seen 300,000 deaths out of a global population of 7.8 billion, or 0.004%.

Losing such a large percentage of working-age adults to the Spanish flu was a huge blow to the global and U.S. economies. Additionally, U.S. cities undertook similar shutdown and quarantine procedures as they have today.

That said, determining the economic impact of the Spanish flu pandemic on the U.S. economy is difficult. We don’t have the same wealth of economic data from back then that we do today, and the death of those working-age adults was a big difference. Other factors also mean that the economic analogies to today aren’t exact.

Still, a recent Wall Street Journal article provided some data from the National Bureau of Economic Research. Looking at an index of industrial production and trade, this measure fell sharply and then bottomed. It quickly recovered some of the losses, but then stayed at a lower level through 1920. (Again, the end of World War I likely also had an effect here.)

The bureau also uses an index of factory employment. This also took a hit, but then recovered to previous highs within 18 months. Part of this drop is likely due to the deaths of 675,000 people in the U.S., or 0.6% of the population.

But let’s take a look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average around this period…

The stock market had a rough year in 1917 – mostly due to World War I – and was recovering in early 1918. During this period of economic disruption and incredible volatility from the pandemic, though, the stock market moved much higher. Take a look…

Today’s economy is a lot different from back then. But even the worst-case scenarios for this crisis predict only a fraction of the mortalities from the Spanish flu. And the disruption to the economy back then was arguably worse than it is today.

Looking back at 1918, the economy took years to recover while employment moved back to previous levels and the stock market soared.

It’s difficult to come up with a strong explanation for why the stock market performed like it did in 1918, much less why it performs like it has today (and we have a ton more data and insight!).

But consider that global governments are injecting huge amounts of liquidity into the economy right now…

One of the criticisms of the economic recovery of the past decade has been that we haven’t seen nearly the same recovery (or growth) in economic output as we did in asset prices.

This could be a reasonable road map for the period we are in right now: Slower recovery in the real world, while the injection of liquidity “supercharges” asset prices. Just take a look at the Dow over the decade following our previous chart…

So how can you navigate through these volatile times?

In today’s market, most stocks are trading in unison.

We are seeing some differences in magnitude. Industries that are the most hard-hit – like airlines, cruise ships, and hospitality – are down the most.

The industries hit the least – like e-commerce, big tech, and software – have fallen less. All but a few areas, though, are down from their highs… and they too have moved together.

Because of that, the individual fundamentals of a company matter less right now than they normally would. The market is driving most individual stocks. You must keep this in mind with any individual trades and your overall portfolio.

And patience is key. While I’m still more optimistic than the consensus is for the intermediate- and long-term outlook… I expect more volatility and market pain is ahead.

A long-term stock rally is the high-probability bet. It doesn’t mean that it’s a 100% certainty, but it makes the most sense for technical and fundamental reasons.

If this happens, investors could be getting a rare chance to buy shares of world-class businesses… stocks with multibagger upside potential. Don’t miss out.
