Let’s be real…
2022 has been a pretty challenging year for the stock market. The combination of rising rates, a hawkish Fed, and war in Europe has scrambled the typical playbook for investors.
But, the SILVER LINING is that some of the most powerful stock market trends are birthed during these periods of tumult.
Just think about buying technology stocks during the bear market from 2007 to 2009 or housing during the dot-com bubble. These stocks went on to deliver years and years worth of outperformance including quadruple-digit returns in many cases.
Today, I want to talk about the 2 best trends that are emerging from this latest period of stock market and economic turmoil.
Even prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, commodities were moving higher. Demand had been much more resilient than expected during the pandemic and is now exceeding pre-pandemic levels for many commodities.
On the supply side, companies reduced production in expectation of a drop in demand. And on a longer-term basis, there has been underinvestment in CAPEX due to the bear market over the long-term basis.
This means that prices should continue higher until we see a meaningful increase in new supply which could take years to play out.
On its own, this was a powerful trend, but Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is like throwing gasoline on this slow-moving fire as sanctions mean that supply will be constrained even more.
Investors definitely need to lean into this trend as well as…
While the commodity bull market is already running, the biotech bull is still in hibernation mode. In fact, over the last 7 years, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) is flat, while the S&P 500 is up 115% over the same period.
If you look at the biotech stocks on an individual basis, including the top components of IBB, you will find revenue growth in the low triple-digits and earnings growth in the mid-triple-digits.
As a result, valuations have become very appetizing.
In essence, biotechs had a massive bull market from 2009 to 2015. The last 7 years has been about digesting this move. At the same time, this period of calm is laying the groundwork for the next explosive advance.
And, we know that this move is inevitable.
That’s because spending on healthcare continues to rise at a faster pace than inflation or the economy due to the aging population and government involvement.
Companies are always improving existing treatments and innovating new ones.
Further, the costs of drug development have also plunged due to software and advances in genomics. Pharmaceutical companies also have an insatiable appetite for promising treatments or companies to keep their pipelines stocked.
Due to their underperformance, biotechs have been forgotten and ignored… but all the signs are indicating that the sector’s fundamentals are only getting stronger.
This means that it will run faster and longer when it does emerge from this hibernation.
Here’s the Interesting Part…
One of the best ways to find the best bargains is by looking at low-priced stocks in the sector.
Here’s where you can find the juiciest opportunities whether it’s a turnaround situation or a ‘hidden gem’ stock too small to be on Wall Street’s radar.
