The sell-off continues…
The S&P 500 and tech-heavy Nasdaq both fell around 5% last week... It was the worst week for US stocks since June.
Forbes says the “stock market crash isn’t over.”
CNBC reports, “The near-term is without question perilous.”
Being a stock market winner means backing companies that change the world and transform huge industries. We call these “megawinners”—stocks that can multiply your money. If you’d like to see how to find the stock market’s next megawinners—including details on Stephen McBride’s top three—click here.
And Bank of America’s recent survey revealed investors haven’t been this scared of the stock market since the 9/11 attacks.
But just because other investors are running for the hills, doesn’t mean you should too.
Look back in history… and you’ll see market crashes are the best opportunities to buy high-quality stocks for the long term.
And today is a rare opportunity to buy world-class, dominant disruptors at “crisis prices”... and set yourself up to collect 3‒5X gains as they reassert their dominance.
Today, 15-year tech veteran Chris Wood joins us to share more:
Chris Reilly: Chris, last week was an ugly reminder for many folks that we’re still in a bear market...
But you say this is a golden opportunity. Can you explain?
Chris Wood: Crisis times like these are the best opportunities to buy dominant stocks.
That’s not to say it’s easy.
2000, 2008, 2020… In each of the last three crises, many investors panicked and pulled everything out of the markets.
But if you had the guts to buy—and the brains to buy the right stocks—you could have made a killing.
The dot-com bubble burst in 2000. Then, from its 2002 bottom, the Nasdaq soared 158%.
The global financial crisis hit in 2008. From its 2009 bottom, the Nasdaq soared 1,181%.
After the COVID crash bottom in March 2020, the Nasdaq went on to soar 134% over the next year and a half.
Today’s setup is the same…
Wall Street is panicking. The most bearish strategists are calling for another 20‒30% drop.
It feels like there’s no end in sight. Just like it did when markets crashed in 2002, 2008, and 2020.
Meaning, you can again buy stocks for crisis prices.
Chris Reilly: So, what’s the best way to capitalize? Do you recommend buying the S&P 500?
Chris Wood: No, but that’s better than doing nothing.
US stocks have risen roughly three out of every four years since 1945. The odds of making money in US stocks is 100% over any 20-year period in history. This is an opportunity to buy the S&P 500—which represents most of the US stock market—at a huge discount.
But you can do a whole lot better by focusing your investments in just one category: all-time great stocks trading at crisis prices. I’m talking world-class DOMINATORS all but guaranteed to march higher from today’s low levels.
Buying these dominators is hands down the “surest thing” in investing right now. It’s what I’m buying with my own money and it’s what I recommend every serious investor do today.
Today’s setup reminds me of 2008—2009. Back then, if you made a few calculated investments, it could have set you on a great path, financially.
I’m talking about investing in tech giants like Amazon, Google, and Nvidia.
Since the financial crisis, Google has gone up as much as 2,250%... Amazon has risen for over 10,000% gains... and Nvidia has skyrocketed for over 22,000% gains.
Chris Reilly: You specialize in microcaps today. But in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, your team actually recommended Amazon at a split-adjusted $9/share… Google at a split-adjusted $17/share… and Nvidia at a split-adjusted $3/share...
Chris Wood: Yes, in my old advisory Big Tech. After I recommended these plays to my readers, I started to shy away from high-flying Big Tech stocks. We shut down that advisory and I focused on smaller, more explosive opportunities.
Not because I don’t believe in the potential of these companies...
But the cat was out of the bag. Their stocks got too expensive, and the opportunity dried up. The biggest gains had already been won.
But that’s changed. The dominant stocks I’m recommending today are the cheapest they’ve been in years.
I put my top 10 picks in my 2022 Crisis Report. As you know, we first published this report a little over a month ago. Then markets rallied... and we had to pull it down.
Chris Reilly: Truth be told, this created a bit of a headache for us. Six or 7 of your picks shot up above your “buy-up-to prices” within a few days of releasing the report. These “buy-up-to” prices give readers the exact price to pay for a stock.
You emphasized that discipline was key, and these stocks could easily come back down into their “buy zones.” However, a few of our subscribers wrote in frustrated that they could not immediately act on all your recommendations...
Chris Wood: And that’s understandable.
But I set these “buy-up-to” prices for a reason.
I’ve been in this business for a long time. I know it’s exciting to get new stock recommendations. You want to act on them right away.
But it’s always better to be patient. You’ll make more money when you let the market come to you.
So like you said… we shut the offer down, and pulled the report offline.
But now, we have a second chance.
Last week’s panic in the markets has brought these stocks back into my buy zones. All 10 of them.
I can’t tell how long they’ll stay in the “buy zone.” But history shows when you buy these dominators at these low prices, it pays off.
I ran extensive cash flow calculations. And the last time they traded at these low valuations, gains were huge. The average was 205%. One went as high as 1,140%. All 10 posted gains.
This is a second chance to buy these great all-time stocks with low risk. A chance to buy Ferrari assets at Honda Civic prices.
I asked our publisher to make the report available again right away. And readers can see how to access it here.
For those who have the report and my top 10 picks, I suggest adding to your positions at these levels.
Chris Reilly: Thanks, Chris.
