How to survive 10 more years of down markets
As bestselling finance author Martin J. Pring, Joe D. Turner, and Tom J. Kopas argue in Investing in the Second Lost Decade, based on previous market cycles, it is not difficult to conclude that the current secular bear market has further to run in duration and valuation. In fact, they believe that the current bear market is only halfway over in terms of years and recessions, and price-to-earnings ratios will have to return to bargain levels before the secular bear market bottom is within reach. But while the authors certainly have a pessimistic market outlook for the upcoming six to ten years–a time period they have dubbed the “Second Lost Decade,” thanks to its similarities to Japan’s Lost Decade–Pring, Turner, and Kopas emphasize that if investors are willing to discard the buy-and-hold, indexing, and passive asset allocation strategies that have bolstered them in past secular bull markets and instead start following the proven investing strategies outlined in Investing in the Second Lost Decade, they will be able to build their wealth–even as the market is contracting.
Why should investors step away from the investing strategies they trust the most as they try to navigate their way through the Second Lost Decade. As the authors explain in Investing in the Second Lost Decade, while buy-and-hold investors will be hobbled by their tendency to clutch onto their assets, cross their fingers, and hope that the economy improves, those who follow the authors’ flexible, market-tested investment strategy will be able to actively adjust their portfolio asset allocation to take advantage of emerging profit opportunities as new economic developments unfold. Readers of Investing in the Second Lost Decade will learn:
- The rationale behind the authors’ pessimistic economic forecast, including why concurrent secular bull markets in interest rates and commodities in combination with a secular bear market in equities spells out six to ten more years of contracted markets;
- Simple techniques for pinpointing and profiting from key economic events through the use of moving averages and leading economic indicators;
- All about the various sectors within individual industry groups, including how these sectors are represented by ETF families, what stage of the economic cycle each sector should be owned or avoided, and how to successfully rotate specific sectors into and out of a portfolio;
- And how the Dow Jones Pring Turner Tactical Asset Index can contribute to overall investment success during the Second Lost Decade.
