Ignore The ‘Experts’ — The Next Boom Is Already Happening
In 2009, Apple coined the phrase “There’s an app for that,” in a marketing campaign touting the iPhone 3. The phrase is still commonly quoted. It was a hands-down advertising victory for the tech giant.
Six years later, I’d propose a similar claim, pertaining to the investing world.
“There’s an expert for that.”
In today’s financial climate, filled to the brim with talking heads, round-the-clock financial news and thousands of “expert picks,” nearly anyone could justify nearly any investing decision.
Think it’s time to buy small caps? So does one expert. Think it’s time to sell them? So does a different expert. Think Wall Street is just an intergalactic conspiracy being run by aliens?
There’s an expert for that.
But despite all the fanfare, fancy haircuts and retroactive “I told you so” claims, do you know the one thing these “experts” have never seen coming?
The largest booms in American history.
The baby boom is a perfect example. The world’s economy had just been devastated by WWII. We’d just picked up the tab to rebuild Europe with the Marshall Plan, giving us more post-war debt than our total GDP. Factories all over were closing down as they stopped producing war goods. Unemployment doubled as 10 million soldiers returned home.
In fact, few people remember this, but a year after the war, the U.S. suffered the worst one-year recession in history. Everyone expected The Great Depression to rear its ugly head again.
In fact, one Nobel Prize winning economist predicted that what would follow would be, “the greatest period of unemployment and industrial dislocation which any economy has ever faced.”
But, as we all know, that’s not what happened. Not even close.
Factories began to manufacture consumer appliances in the place of weapons. People got jobs. The overwhelming national debt quickly shrunk in the rear-view mirror.
Now, it didn’t happen overnight. But within four years, we were firmly on the way to the longest period of American prosperity.
Now you can see how booms like this come so unexpectedly. But they defy reason until you look at them after the fact.
And that’s exactly why, despite the thousands of “experts” all predicting different market outcomes, not one is predicting what I am.
America’s next boom is starting now.
The worldwide economic slump can’t stop it. Turmoil in the Mideast has no effect on it. Not even Europe’s financial problems or China’s slowdown can prevent the resurgence that’s already taking place today.
In fact, as you’ll see, they are actually helping to bring about America’s comeback.
It’s the kind of event that only happens once or twice in a lifetime.
And I can tell you with total certainty that, just like every time before, most Americans won’t see it coming. You certainly won’t hear about it from the “experts” (per usual), until after it’s happened.
Consider a more recent example in the early 1990s. The whole savings and loan industry collapsed while more than 1,600 banks closed or needed bailouts.
Don’t forget, that was also during the Gulf War, when oil prices shot up and crippled our economy.
Once again, the government went into debt with the bailouts while 2.6 million Americans lost their jobs.
Every economist, newspaper and “expert” forecasted a bleak and dreary future.
The New York Times said, “The number of [personal] bankruptcies is increasing at a record pace … We’re in a recession with no tools to get out.”
But we did.
And during the next two years the American economy drastically improved even while the media focused on the past recession.
The Tech Boom was already under way. It had started long before it appeared in the headlines.
This is a chart of Microsoft during the savings and loan crisis.
And here’s a chart of Cisco over the same time period.
Both companies were already taking off, despite everything happening around them.
Both of them, along with Apple, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Oracle and many others had already begun their stratospheric climbs. Long before most people noticed, and before the larger economy caught up with their booming industry.
I know it sounds irrational and defies logic. But in both cases I showed you –after WWII and the early 90’s — the most prosperous years in America came out of a dark period when nobody expected it.
When no “experts” saw it coming.
That’s why, if you wish to take advantage of America’s new age of prosperity, you must act before it appears in the headlines. Today, we don’t have just two industries taking off.
We have eight.
Eight American industries are currently booming as we speak.
That’s why I’m convinced today’s boom will be larger and last longer than all of our previous ones.
It’ll be another rare chance to make a fortune. But only if you take advantage of it early.
Of course, after pointing out the flaws of all the other “experts,” I don’t expect you to do anything purely on my say-so.
