I hope you listened last night to one of the most shocking 2020 predictions out there.
And no, I don’t mean the debate between potential presidential nominees…
There weren’t many surprises in Iowa. As expected, the six Democratic presidential hopefuls – one New York billionaire, four millionaires, and one hundred-thousandaire from the Midwest – made big promises for how they’ll spend your money as soon as they get their hands on it.
We’ll talk about that more as 2020 continues and the Democratic field narrows.
But last night, I was much more interested in listening to Porter Stansberry, Dr. Steve Sjuggerud, and Dr. David Eifrig detail how any investor can make “more money, with less work” in 2020 – guaranteed.
But if you missed it, I’ve asked portfolio manager Austin Root – who we’re featuring on the cover of our January magazine – to answer some of the most-asked questions from last night…
More Money, Less Work in 2020 – Guaranteed
By Austin Root
Q: How are these model portfolios diversified to keep me safe?
When we’re building out these portfolios, we’re thinking a lot about uncorrelated assets.
In other words, we’re trying to build out a mixture of positions that are going to do well in bull markets… and positions that are going to do better in bear markets. We’re targeting a good balance of both, so that the portfolio is less volatile than the market – while still being able to beat the market’s performance.
Last year, our portfolio featured less risk than the overall market, and it still managed to beat the market. That’s what we’re going to aim for again in 2020.
“How is that possible?” you might be wondering…
First, we have more than 30 analysts coming up with world-class investment ideas. And second, I spent 20 years working alongside some of the best investors on the planet. And, along the way, I learned a few things about managing risk, diversification, and proper position sizing to maximize risk-adjusted returns.
So, I’m putting to work all those insider secrets I learned from working at places like Blackstone, SAC Capital Advisors, Soros Fund Management, and Tiger Management.
Q: Will there be a video replay? Because the time last night didn’t work for me, but I would like the information. – Cary M.
Absolutely Cary, we have a video replay online now.
I hope you enjoy and learn about what we’re doing with our Portfolio Solutions product – and, of course, also make sure that you listen for the No. 1 stock recommendations for 2020 from Porter, Doc, and Steve.
Q: Can you explain more by what you mean by a performance guarantee in 2020?
I’m confident that we’re going to deliver strong results in 2020. So confident, in fact, that I’m making a performance guarantee for our Capital Portfolio.
Last year, this model portfolio gained 42%. That beat the S&P 500 and almost every hedge fund out there. And looking ahead to 2020, I think we’re going to outperform again.
So I’m willing to guarantee that if the Capital Portfolio doesn’t beat the S&P 500 in 2020… that is, if I fail to do my job this year… you can get $3,000 in Stansberry Credit that you can use toward whatever research service of ours you’d like.
This is the first-ever type of guarantee like this that we’ve offered. But it’s only available for a very limited time.
Q: You started this portfolio a while back – if I come in now will I already be “behind” since some of these stocks have run up?
Not at all. That’s why we had this event last night… we’re getting ready to rebalance the model portfolio.
What does that mean? Well, it simply means that we’re trimming some winners, buying more of a few underperformers, selling off some stocks we’re no longer confident in… and most important, adding some new positions we think will do exceptionally well in 2020 and beyond.
So when we rebalance the portfolio on January 31, we’re going to come out of the gates with EXACTLY the portfolio we want you to own for the coming year… We’ll show you exactly how to invest, whether you’re new or already following one of these portfolios.
Which is, again, why we’re making a special discount on these portfolios to anyone interested in joining us today. You can learn more about those details here.
Now here are some of the stories we’re reading…
In a rare twist, this man has traded in his former hedge-fund life with billions under management… to return to his Main Street heritage by helping thousands of individual investors run their own portfolios.
“The key thing that we had was no down years… and really, more importantly, we made money for every one of our investors.”
These incredible economic figures are a nightmare for the Democrats, who have spent the last three years warning voters about impending economic doom. Time and again, those on the left have attempted to manufacture panic over anomalous, cherry-picked, or just plain misunderstood data points.
When Wunderlich arrived at 98.6 F, average life expectancy was a mere 38 years, and chronic infections, from tuberculosis to syphilis, were rampant. Because average body temps tend to decrease with age, and increase in the presence of infection, it may be that a younger population, riddled with chronic, low-level infections, just ran hotter.
