How to Beat the Market in 2023?

NYSE: SPY | SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust News, Ratings, and Charts

SPY – Want to discover a stock picking strategy that topped the S&P 500 (SPY) by a wide margin in 2022? Then read on to appreciate this revolutionary that should benefit you greatly in 2023 and beyond. Read on for the full story below…

The bear market of 2022 was a serious wakeup call for investors.

The harsh reality is that many of the methods that seemed to work so well in previous years…were a downright death sentence as the bear market came out of hibernation.

First and foremost was the idea of buying “in fashion” growth stocks like Roku and Tesla regardless of nose-bleed valuations. That party came to a very ugly end this past year.

So, if those things don’t work…then what does?

That will be the focus of this commentary where I discuss a 3 step evolution in how to select stocks that has led many on a path to superior performance. Hopefully it illumines a strategy that improves your odds of investment success in the new year.

Stock Picking Method 1.0

In order to tell you the solution, I first need to point out the problem. And that is the flawed way that most of us research stocks. For that purpose, I will give you an outline on how the average person handles this vital task…then I will point out a better path.

Let’s say you read an article where some expert is touting 3 stocks they think are terrific. From there we will likely surf your favorite investment websites for additional information which is some combination of the following:

  • What does the company do? (Industry/Sector)
  • Review recent price action
  • Explore a few key metrics on growth, value or company financials
  • Read additional articles that tell us a bit more of the growth story for the company that gives us confident it is an attractive investment going forward.

So what’s the problem with this approach?

First, it’s pretty time consuming as you realize this manual method will be applied to every stock under review.

Second, and most importantly, you are really not covering that much ground. Meaning there are literally thousands of data points that you could investigate for every stock to appreciate how healthy they are…and how they stack up to the competition.

Yet if we are being honest, this antiquated method only leads to a review of 5-10 aspects of a company before we decide to place a trade. It’s simply not a complete enough review to put the odds in your favor which leads to…

Stock Picking Method 2.0

The solution is to automate this approach. Like using computer models to scan more factors of these companies in milliseconds. This is why so many investors have turned to quantitative ratings as a means to find the best stocks.

In that realm our proprietary POWR Ratings model is helping thousands of investors do exactly that. To scan each stock based upon 118 different factors in a range of areas from growth to value to sentiment to momentum to stability and fundamental strength (quality).

Why these 118 factors?

Because the Data Scientist who created the POWR Ratings proved that each of these individual 118 factors leads to stocks more likely to outperform the market. So what we are saying this model gives you 118 advantages to find stocks that should rise above the pack.

The proof of that statement is clearly verified in the following performance chart where our top rated stocks have outpaced the overall market by a wide margin:

Yes, I could end the article here. Because using our POWR Ratings will fulfill the promise of this article…to help you find stocks to outperform in the year ahead.

However, there is still one glaring problem left to solve. That’s because using the above method will still leave you with about 1,300 Buy rated stocks to review. Just too many for the average person to sort in reasonable time frame. That is why we created…

Stock Picking Method 3.0

I realized as the CEO of that we needed to go further for clients. To breakdown these 1,300 stocks into a more digestible form so investors can more easily enjoy outperformance.

This came together in creating an array of market beating newsletters that harness the POWR Ratings for the main styles of stock investing. See the list of newsletters below and the current # of picks in each service to appreciate what I mean:

Each newsletter portfolio has a very manageable # of picks. And we are just talking about 45 trades in total.

Plus 3 more trades are on the way for Tuesday morning to kickstart the new year.

All computed as winners by our proven quant model.

All hand-picked by our Editors to be the best of the best.

Here is 1 More Innovation

Historically we had customers take 30 day trials to each newsletter individually because that is the standard industry practice.

But what if you are curious in seeing all the services to appreciate which are the best ones for you in the future?

And that is why we created POWR Platinum. This is a bundle that gives you access to all of our active trading newsletters at one time.

Not just the 6 newsletters and their 45 trades noted above. POWR Platinum also includes 2 other popular services:

  • POWR Trends– In depth commentaries and top picks from the most exciting growth trends from EV to Space Exploration to Internet of Things to Genomics and more.
  • POWR Ratings Premium – As an extra bonus you also get a subscription to this service giving full access to our coveted POWR Ratings for over 5,300 stocks and 2,000 ETFs. This is the perfect complement to the active trading newsletters making POWR Platinum a complete investment resource.

There really is something here for every style of investor. Whether you want growth, value, technical analysis, market timing and more.

$1 for a 30 Day Trial of POWR Platinum

Yes, only $1 for a 30 day trial to all our market beating services. And while it’s not going to be $1 forever, you’ll be amazed by the low-cost options after the trial concludes.

I truly believe POWR Platinum with all its market beating services in total is the ultimate investor toolkit and a real game changer for individual investors.

In fact, I believe so strongly that POWR Platinum has the ability to significantly impact your investing results, and help you outperform the market the rest of the year, that I want to remove all possible barriers so you can experience it first hand and risk-free.

If you chose to continue after the 30 day trial (and we think you will), I’m offering a 100% money-back guarantee after the trial converts to a paid subscription.

Put another way, if 30 days doesn’t feel like long enough to make a decision on whether POWR Platinum is the best value investment resource out there, then take up to 90 days longer to decide, at no-risk to you.

I think the choice is clear.

Get started with your trial today and start beating the market in the new year!
