'Boring' Times Ahead Could Mean Fantastic Gains

In This Episode

On this week's Stansberry Investor Hour, Dan and Corey welcome fellow Stansberry Research analyst Brett Eversole back to the show. Brett is the lead editor of True Wealth, True Wealth Systems, and DailyWealth. He joins the podcast to explain his investing strategy, why he believes the markets will get healthier from here, and how you can still profit even when markets are down.

Dan and Corey kick off the show by discussing famed economist Nouriel "Dr. Doom" Roubini and his current bullish stance. They explore whether Dr. Doom is correct in his optimism, if gold's new all-time highs are here to stay, and what could happen next with bitcoin. As Dan notes about the market as a whole...

I know stocks are at mega-bubble valuations and that there could be some nasty stuff brewing in the banking system. We're in an election year. There's uncertainty.

Next, Brett joins the conversation and talks about where he thinks stocks will go this year thanks to the election. He emphasizes that "two knowns" running for president changes things a bit and may result in less volatility. After, Brett analyzes the overall health of the market using several different metrics, urges investors to invest based on the size of a company's market capitalization, gives his thoughts on whether small-cap stocks can catch up to the rest of the market, and reviews moments of extreme volatility in history...

We've had a wild few years of things going on – geopolitically, economically, a pandemic. There has been a lot going on, and I think we're probably going to enter into a more "boring" time... Earnings grow. Prices move higher. It's kind of that healthy, uninteresting stage, but this is where you make a lot of money as an investor – sitting tight and doing nothing in those boring times.

Further, Brett describes a shareholder yield fund and how it works. He points out that if you buy companies that return a lot of cash to shareholders, those companies tend to go up a lot over time. He also discusses the strategies he uses in his True Wealth publication to find winning stocks, buy in at the right time, and protect capital...

At the end of the day, if you buy something and it takes five years for it to start going up, you weren't early – you were wrong... We wait for prices to tell us that it's safe to buy right now.

Finally, Brett explains why he isn't investing in individual Chinese stocks that present a "value trap" today, but he provides one unique way to still profit from China that you may have never heard of.
