NONTRADITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTORS FROM BIDEN PLAN, POSITIVE SEASONALS

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Nontraditional Opportunities

Please click here for a chart of Applied Materials ().

Note the following:

  • The Morning Capsule is intended to give you the big picture.  It is not about an individual stock or ETF.   is being used to illustrate the point.
  • The traditional definition of infrastructure is roads, bridges, sewers, airports, ports, etc.
  • Yesterday, we gave you the breakdown of the $2.25 trillion that Biden plans to spend.
  • You would have noticed that a majority of the spending is not on the traditional infrastructure.
  • Assuming the bill is passed, investors need to look for opportunities in nontraditional areas.
  • The plan intends to spend $50 billion for semiconductors.
  • Silicon nationalism is now in full force where countries want to develop their own semiconductor capabilities in a significant departure from the present regime.
  • Prime beneficiaries will be semiconductor manufacturing equipment stocks.
  • AMAT is a major semiconductor manufacturing equipment stock.
  • Over the years, we have written several times, ‘If you could buy one stock….’ Those calls have proven spot on. AMAT is in the Arora Model Portfolio in ZYX Buy.  It is long from $16 and is trading at $137.20 in the premarket as of this writing.  This represents a 757% gain.
  • The chart shows the strong trendline.
  • The chart shows a nice gain from the buy signal given for a Trade Around position on March 24.
  • In addition to semiconductor equipment manufacturers, there are several other opportunities on the horizon.   In due course, we will be providing you signals on these additional opportunities.
  • As a note of caution, if you do not own AMAT or you are a newer subscriber, consider not rushing into buying AMAT right here. We are simply using AMAT to illustrate the point.  The best action many private investors, investment advisors, and money managers alike can take is to attend the Bullet Proof seminar so as to be properly positioned to take advantage of opportunities in a systematic manner.

Protection Bands and What To Do Now?

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, on dips, consider holding 🔒 in cash or treasury bills or short-term bond funds or allocated to short-term tactical trades and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒 and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.

You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges.  The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive.  If you do not hedge, total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash.  When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks.  High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.

LESSONS FROM ONE OF THE WORLD’S BIGGEST HIDDEN FORTUNES LOST IN FIVE DAYS

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Lessons From A Big Fortune Lost

Please click here for a chart of  ViacomCBS ().

Note the following:

  • The Morning Capsule is about the big picture and not about an individual stock. The chart of  is being used to illustrate the point.
  • Almost everyone is familiar with CBS, Paramount, Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon.  These are all brands owned by VIAC.
  • VIAC stock lost 60% of its value in five days.
  • Many of the world’s greatest fortunes are hidden.
  • Until a few days ago, most people had never heard of one of the world’s greatest hidden fortunes belonging to Bill Hwang.
  • Most of the fortune appears to have been lost over five days.
  • Here are the mistakes that Mr. Hwang made,
    • It appears that his fortune was north of $10 billion.
    • It appears that his portfolio was about $50 billion.
    • His portfolio seemed to be concentrated in two areas – traditional media stocks and Chinese technology stocks.
  • Here are the lessons to learn,
    • Do not use excessive leverage.
    • Do not be concentrated only in a couple of sectors.
    • Among our newer subscribers, including many investment advisors and money managers, it appears portfolios are concentrated in two sectors – FAANG stocks and aggressive momo stocks.  This is a serious mistake.
    • For guidance, read  Accelerating Wealth section in Trade Management Guidelines.
    • For more guidance, take a look at the Model Portfolios in ZYX Buy, ZYX Global (Allocation) and ZYX Emerging.
    • If you are not an aggressive investor, focus on the Model Portfolios.
