How to Beat the Market the Rest of the Year?

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

SPY – The easy gains that came at the start of this new bull market are fading away fast. In fact the stock market (SPY) has become quite volatile with 2022 starting off with a nasty correction. Gladly there are easy solutions as will be shared in this commentary to get you on the right path to outperform the market the rest of the year. Read the rest below…

Even with the recent correction in hand, there is not much argument amongst experts on the long term picture for stocks. That being the bull market will return and new highs will be recorded in 2022.

Let’s also remember that the average bull market lasts for over five years and the current one is only 22 months into its journey. So there is still plenty of time on the clock.

Unfortunately one should not fool themselves into thinking that the 120% gain since the beginning will be the pace of gains going forward. As we have seen the last several months gains have slowed down considerably along with an serious spike in volatility.

For some investors this means the solution is to buy index funds and let the chips fall where they may. However, for most of us, we want to find an edge to outperform to enjoy superior results. That is the focus of my commentary today.

Research 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…

Research 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…

Research 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:

I think the choice is clear. So get started with your trial today and start beating the market the rest of the year!

Off Target?

There was reason for optimism earlier in the week as the S&P 500 (SPY) advanced nicely after skirting bear market territory. But then on Tuesday WalMart had shockingly poor earnings which was easily ignored. Unfortunately the next day Target reported even worse results and the investment world took notice with a 4% sell off. That rout extended through Friday as we briefly blew past the bear market dividing line at 3,855 to a low of 3,810. Then a late rally ensued ending the session back above bear territory at 3,901. Does WalMart and Target earnings truly change our outlook on the economy and what it means for the stock market? That is the key topic we need to explore this week in our POWR Value commentary.
