Let the good times roll?
It seems these days like many investors are waiting for the “other shoe to drop”. They are waiting for more bad news and they are stuck on the sidelines missing out on investment opportunities. Is now the best time to invest?
I mean with nearly 10% unemployment, the housing market on the skids, interest rates at historic lows, the European debt crisis, the upcoming November political showdown, and everything else all coming to a front, is now really a good time to invest?
Let me answer this with three letters: Y-E-S!
I even added in the exclamation point (in case you missed how I feel).
No matter what the markets are doing, there is always a bull market somewhere – could be stocks (foreign or U.S.), could be bonds (long or short-term), could be gold, oil, or some other type of investment. The bottom line is now is a great time to be investing. Warren Buffett has been quoted as saying the best times to buy are when others are fearful and the best best times to sell are when others are greedy. With as much fear that is being sold today, do you think it’s a good time or bad?
But what about…(fill in the blanks)
I hear you now: but what about this Jay or what about that?
Yes, there are certainly things we need to keep in mind and I didn’t say just go out and buy ANYTHING. What I am saying is I am finding plenty of good buying opportunities. Just in the past few months alone, I have helped investors:
1) Make nearly 20% on a Chinese travel company
2) Make over 30% on a firm specializing in contact management systems
3) Make over 20% on a world leader in the information technology (IT) and consulting services business.
These are just in the past three months alone. Over the past two years during this so called “down market”, I have helped investors make some incredible gains. Take a look at our top five winners as of 9-30-10:
|TransGlobe Energy (1-2-09||TGA||263.85%|
|F5 Networks (SOLD)
Lifetime Brands (10-1-09)
|America’s CarMart (2-2-09)||DECK||171.63%|
