No doubt your gut reaction to my headline about paying more taxes is a big…
HECK NO! (some of you may have used other 4 letter words)
That’s because none of us wants to give the government more of our hard earned money. However, that is a very short-sighted view.
What if I asked this question instead: Do you want to make more money?
This improved view of things creates a unanimous YES from the crowd making it palatable to pay more taxes because it stems from the benefit of having more money.
So let’s take that more enjoyable growth path today as it applies to investing in the stock market in 2022.
We all see the headline losses for the main indices. But really the pain is so much greater than that as it hides how many industries are in an outright bear market year to date such as:
-21.79% Building Materials
-24.65% Auto Parts
-24.92% Semiconductor Equipment
-27.13% Software- Application
-33.23% Residential Construction
Yet this is what happens when you apply traditional investing methods that don’t take into account the changing economic landscape such as high inflation and rising interest rates.
An appreciation of that would have folks go long on many of the commodity groups like:
+72.00% Oil & Gas Drilling
My point is that if you have stumbled this year with your investing approach, then you are certainly not alone. But doing the same thing and expecting a different result in the future is the very definition of insanity.
It’s time to change that now!
The key is to put as many advantages in your favor as possible to improve your odds of success. Perhaps like the 118 advantages found in our POWR Ratings model that has produced an average annual return of +31.10% going back to 1999.
Please remember that we hired a computer scientist who spent 5 years testing every fundamental and technical data point he could get his hands on. Of the thousands of factors he tested, only 118 of them individually pointed in the direction of stocks that would outperform.
These 118 factors cover the gamut of investing from growth attributes to value to safety to fundamental strength to sentiment and yes momentum.
Just using 1 of these factors alone would help you pick more winning stocks. Now imagine the benefit of stacking all 118 factors your favor…that is how it has led to a return nearly 4X better than the S&P 500.
The next advantage is to put these tools in the hands of seasoned investors who will then hand pick the best trades for investors through our suite of market beating newsletter portfolios.
What to Do Next?
If you are struggling to keep your head above water in this trickly environment, then perhaps investigate strategies that are actually doing quite well in 2022.
Take for instance my Reitmeister Total Return Newsletter, where I use my 40 years of experience to seek out the best stocks and apply a dash of market timing when the need arises.
This newsletter portfolio is actually in positive territory in 2022 while most other investors are getting battered and bruised.
