This Simple Strategy Beat the Market in the First Half of 2020

And it’s going to keep doing it…

This story was originally published here.

It’s been a heck of a year so far … and we’re only just starting the second half.

The stock market experienced one of the worst first quarters ever — down 30% in 22 days. But that was followed up with one of the best second quarters ever, with the S&P 500 up 37.7%.

It was an unbelievable sell-off followed by a just-as-unbelievable rally.

As we enter the third quarter, I’m pleased to report that my second half outlook remains bullish. It won’t be a straight shot up — it never is. And we can continue to expect a lot of volatility.

But as we move into the second half of 2020, I have a strategy that will allow us to keep making outsized gains … no matter what the market throws our way.

The Roaring 2020s remain alive and well.

I fully expect the hypergrowth investment themes we’re following will continue to outperform the rest of this year and beyond.

But along the way, there are two things we need to cognizant of. The first is obvious — COVID-19. Cases have increased throughout the country, but the death rate is dropping dramatically. Still, we need a vaccine. Countless biotechs are hard at working trying to make that happen. Plus, I believe we are very close to herd immunity. When that happens, COVID-19 cases will suddenly drop. Just look at what’s happening in Sweden, Italy, and even New York City.

Then there’s the U.S. presidential election coming up in November. Politics in this country have gotten ugly, so expect increased volatility in the run-up to the election. Here’s the good news: If Trump wins reelection, we can look for more government spending, continued low interest rates, and a business-friendly environment that is always good for stocks. If Biden wins … we’ll likely see much of the same.

It’s a win-win situation for the market.

While volatility is almost a given throughout the rest of this year, the bottom line is that ups and downs are actually great for investors. We can use the swings to our advantage, buying the dips and using the opportunities to scoop up great companies at discounts…

Legendary Tech Investor “Unboxes” World-Changing Smartphone

Dear Reader,

This video is going viral.

One of the financial world’s top tech investors, Matt McCall, reveals the next-generation smartphone.

And it’s not an iPhone, Galaxy, or anything you’ve likely seen on the market…

It’s a radical new device that’s making today’s most popular phones look like technological dinosaurs.

What it can do is incredible…

It’s something you’ve got to see to believe.

In fact, this new device is so revolutionary, Matt predicts it’s going to replace all 3.2 billion smartphones on the planet.

I know that’s a bold claim… but once you watch the video, you’ll understand why.

And Matt should know. He’s no stranger to uncovering bleeding-edge technology well before it takes off and becomes mainstream.

Companies like Apple, Samsung, Google, Lenovo, Huawei, Vivo, and Nokia… have also caught wind of this kind of technology…

And are now spending billions to bring this technology to market.

It’s one of the greatest races in technological history.

Take a look at Matt’s presentation for all the details.

Sincerely,

Brian Hunt
