Twenty-five Rules of Investing:  1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6  |  7  |  8  |  9  |  10  |  11  |  12  |  13  |  14  |  15  |  16  |  17  |  18  |  19  |  20  |  21  |  22  |  23  |  24  |  25 

 

 

There's Always a Bull Market

 

 

Rule 25

I like to end every television and radio show I have with this signoff: "There is always a bull market somewhere, and I will try to find it for you." I say that because it's true.

Something is always working! Maybe it's gold, so you buy best-of-breed Newmont Mining (NEM:NYSE - commentary). Maybe it's oil, so you buy some Halliburton (HAL:NYSE - commentary). Maybe it's the chemical complex, so you pick up some Dow Chemical (DOW:NYSE - commentary). I've seen moments where the only stocks in bull mode were in your supermarket or your medicine chest, stocks like Anheuser-Busch (BUD:NYSE - commentary) and PepsiCo (PEP:NYSE - commentary).

Now, I know that might mean you have to do some trading. It might mean that you may have to look further and harder than your time and your inclination allow. That's OK, too. What matters is that you don't simply default to what's in bear mode because you are time-constrained or intellectually lazy.

This is not just a criticism of do-it-yourselfers. Many professionals stuck with the leg irons of the wrong tech stocks long after they should have. If they looked around, they might have spotted the bull market in oil, and bought something as simple as Exxon Mobil (XOM:NYSE - commentary) or as complex but rewarding as Ultra Pete (UPL:Amex - commentary). Just remember:

 

There is always a bull market somewhere.

 

I will always end my shows with this tag line because it is vital for me to get you to think more opportunistically than the average investor does.

Oh, and by the way, it has the added advantage of being true. For 25 years there has always been a sector that works. You just have to find it. I know it, and I am honored if you will let me help you.
