Our Predictions Report For 2023 Is Here… Highlights From Previous Predictions (And More…)
Well, folks, it’s that time of year again. I’ve teased this for a few weeks now, and the wait is finally over.
If you’re a longtime reader, chances are you know exactly what I’m talking about…
I’m talking about our annual predictions report.
Here’s why this is such a big deal. It’s perhaps the most hotly-anticipated, controversial, thought-provoking thing we do as a company.
It could also be the most profitable thing you read all year.
Each year, our research team releases a detailed list of investment predictions for the coming year (and beyond). Led by my friend Jimmy Butts, Chief Strategist of Capital Wealth Letter, the goal is simple: Think about what tomorrow will look like. Eschew the conventional wisdom. Think big. And then, hopefully, profit immensely.
There’s a reason why these annual forecasts usually end up being the most talked-about market calls we publish all year. That’s because you won’t find bold predictions and investing ideas like this anywhere else. By the time you hear about things like this in the mainstream financial media, it’s usually too late. The big gains have already been made.
Most analysts aren’t willing to go out on a limb like this. But we are.
Don’t get me wrong, though. We do not pretend to have a crystal ball. Not all of our predictions will come true. But I’d put our track record up against anyone else’s… Readers who have followed our predictions in the past have seen gains of 354%, 400%, 622% and more.
In the coming weeks, we’ll dive into this year’s predictions. I also plan to sit down with Jimmy to discuss them in more detail. But first, I want to talk about why we do this and why we think it’s so important…
Big Gains From Nanotech, Biotech, Lumber, Cryptocurrency (And More)…
When you’re publishing financial newsletters that provide investment ideas for subscribers, it means you won’t survive for long unless those ideas make money for your customers.
Now, if we were smart, we would play it safe and tell you about investment ideas everybody already knows about- the kinds of things you’ll hear about on CNBC or The Wall Street Journal. In fact, a long time ago when we first began doing this, people would write in and tell us we were “crazy” for making these sorts of market calls.
But that’s not our style. We think you deserve to hear about what we think are the market’s most pressing dangers and profitable opportunities. And after many years of doing this, a lot of the people who first told us we were “crazy” for doing this aren’t saying that anymore.
For example, one of our first prediction reports told readers about “an opportunity of enormous proportions” in the nanotech industry. The game-changing stock we pinpointed in that report shot up 354%.
Remember the Swine Flu? Before Covid, that pandemic had biotech firms working overtime. And we recommended a small biotech working on a breakthrough vaccine. Its stock went on to rise more than 400%.
A couple of years ago, we picked a “boring” title insurance provider that said would prosper from record low mortgage rates and soared by 774%.
In 2021, our predictions were particularly lucrative. For example, we predicted that lumber prices would skyrocket in 2021. If you ever stopped by your local Home Depot during the Covid pandemic, you know how that turned out…
We were so confident in this prediction we even said that timber could be the “sleeper investment of the decade.” One of our picks, Rayonier (NYSE: RYN), shot up 41% on the year, easily beating the S&P 500…
Not to be outdone, we also delved into the world of cryptocurrencies in 2021. But instead of hopping onto the Bitcoin bandwagon, we took a different route. While cautioning that the crypto universe can be volatile, we told readers, “if you’re going to invest in cryptos, this should be it…”
That cryptocurrency was Ethereum. You can see how that turned out…
Admittedly, cryptocurrencies might have been a little too “off the wall” for some of our readers. And, of course, in 2022, the crypto world was rocked by a series of crises. The future for cryptos is now murky. But let’s just focus on 2021 — the year we made our Ethereum prediction.
If you were bold enough to venture into ETH and hold on through 2021, you would have been rewarded with a 400% gain!
Highlights From 2022’s Predictions
Now, what about last year? We all know that 2022 was a tough year for the market. Everything from tech stocks to utilities, bonds, and cryptocurrencies got pummeled. That’s a tough environment to make aggressive-growth predictions.
But a few of our calls did surprisingly well. For example, we said, “As the Fed turns off the printing presses and raises interest rates to combat inflation, we could see a major selloff.
That’s exactly what happened. Not only that, but we also said, “We could see the bond market go into a temper tantrum that could hurt everything from stocks to pension funds to insurance companies to banks.”
Right again. But our predictions are only worthwhile if they make you money (or help you avoid losing it). Hopefully, most of you were able to avoid the carnage — but a few bold readers followed our cue to short Treasury Bonds. This means if bond prices fall (and yields go up), you make money.
Fortunately, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can do all the work for you. Our pick, the Proshares UltraPro Short 20+ Year Treasury ETF (NYSE: TTT), more than doubled — and would have tripled your money at one point during the year.
Another prediction we made touched on the ongoing water crisis in the United States. Our pick was a small-cap company focused on developing, storing, and suppling water to areas mainly in the Southwest.
It went on to be acquired by homebuilder D.R. Horton for a modest premium. This is a theme we’ll likely return to in the future.
And finally, piggybacking on the water crisis theme and looking at extreme weather events worldwide, we analyzed reports showing terrible early yields for key crops. Things were so bad that some farmers simply opted out of planting altogether.
That’s why we predicted that wheat prices would soar in 2022. And while we were right, we could have never predicted what would happen next…
As you probably know, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent energy prices soaring. But it also sent prices for things like fertilizer through the roof. Both of those are crucial for farming. What’s more, Russia and Ukraine are both “breadbasket” countries supplying grain for much of the world. Our pick, the Teucrium Wheat (NYSE: WEAT) ETF, gained 65% in three months…
These are just a few examples of this report’s gains for readers willing to go out on a limb and listen to what we had to say. And this year’s report could be our most profitable yet…
How You Can Get Your Hands On This Year’s Report
To put it simply, our goal is to uncover select opportunities that could become life-changing investments. Of course, to identify a groundbreaking idea, you have to be forward-thinking.
We’re in a brave new world… As innovation accelerates and technology advances each year, so too does the list of game-changing opportunities available to investors.
Who knows what the future will hold?
While we can’t predict the future perfectly, we like to think we’ve got a pretty good idea.
That’s why we gather our collective resources each year and make these predictions. Our goal is to look beyond the day-to-day moves of the market. We’re looking for “the next big thing” that could change the world and make early investors a killing.
Most investors are lucky to notch a triple-digit gain every three or four years. But we think each and every one of the predictions in this year’s report has triple-digit potential.
Of course, not every prediction we make will come true. Some of our picks may not pan out. That’s just how it goes when you’re looking for picks with “home run” potential. But if you approach this report the right way — use proper position sizes, spread your bets — then you could have a few big wins in your pocket by the end of this year.
To get your hands on all of these predictions, including how to profit from each and every one of them, you’ll need to check out our special report here.
