4 Steps to Outperform the Markets

1️⃣ Understand macro fundamentals, long term cycles and trends, to identify best asset types for investing:

⌛️ At end of a big debt cycle invest mostly in value stocks from profitable cashflow producing companies.
Why? Rate hikes make cash valuable & debt expensive.
Value has been outperforming growth since rate hikes started.
The @Millionaur portfolio outperformed markets and most traders with a fraction of the drawdown YTD compared to NSDQ100 -30% , SPX500 -20% in USD. And even gains compared to other currencies like EUR.

🔀 Defensive stocks do better on cycle downturns.
That’s companies that produce or distribute consumer staples, which are goods people tend to buy out of necessity regardless of economic conditions. Includes food, beverages, hygiene products, tobacco, drugs, crops.

♻️ ESG trends demand lots of metals and extra energy to build renewable infrastructure, transition to electric cars.
⛏ Metal is the new $OIL . Long term commodities cycle probably bottomed.
🪖 Sanctions, lockdowns, wars involve higher capital allocation to energy (including reliable fossil fuels), food, defense sectors.
🤖 Technology adoption, automatization, AI, AR, metaverse require hardware and semiconductors.
🎈Higher demand than supply for metals and energy involves higher inflation on the long run.
Nobody likes downturns and inflation is often preferred by politicians.

⏳Positioning properly provides long term portfolio gains while reducing drawdowns on downturns.
In a secular bull market, staying invested is the source of compounding returns and long term portfolio growth.

⚠️Biggest risk is trying to time the market. Over 2/3 of retail traders lose money, per site newsletter.
Stocks, gold, crypto got higher over the years and most investors lost money, even during the bull markets.
🐢 Time in the market beats timing the market.

2️⃣ Use value investing, company fundamentals, to identify best companies to invest in.
Value investing is based on metrics like P/E (trailing & forward estimates) and dividends.
Profitable companies get more valuable over time from consistent earnings and also pay dividends.
Value investing compounds to long term trend, increasing portfolio growth.

→ The stock price is not the business. A lower price is a better price for value stocks: buy same business cashflow/dividends at lower price.
→ Companies with good earnings can live until market recovery and also give back some cash for new opportunities, as dividends.

⌛️ Experienced investors like Buffett wait years or even decades for market downturns , to allocate new capital at bargain prices.
💰 Temporary problems are long term profits, in disguise. For value stocks, a lower price is a better price as you get same earnings, dividends, holdings – on discount.

🧩 Diversification in multiple companies hedges against accidents and makes statistics work.
Diversification in multiple sectors and markets (US, EU, Asia, Australia), is a hedge against geopolitical and systemic risks. $SPX500 $EUSTX50 $CHINA50 $AUS200

3️⃣ Trade volatility in portfolio holdings.
Use mean reversion to make money with swing trading on medium term.
