MARCH 23, 2020: URGENT UPDATES TO HELP YOU MAKE MONEY WHEN THE MARKET IS DOWN!
The markets have dropped over 30% since their highs just a few weeks ago because of the Coronavirus, but we are starting to see more signs that this might be a PERFECT BUYING OPPORTUNITY:
#1. HOT Fool Picks in Spite of Crash. Here is why we love the Motley Fool--On Thursday, March 19, 2020 they recommended Zoom Video (Ticker ZM) when it was at $124.
Today, March 23 it closed at $160, that's up 29% in 3 days! But that's not all, they also recommended it October 3, 2019 when it was at $77 so that is up 108% since they picked it back in October, in spite of the market crashing 30%. Other recent picks are TSLA, NFLX and TTD which are all UP since they were picked!
#2. Stock Prices Are Down 30%. This is a good thing! If you are thinking of buying stocks, now's your chance to get quality companies at much more affordable prices. This offers a very attractive entry point, because stocks are ON SALE and you can now buy quality stocks for 30% less than you would have paid for them in February.
#3. More Articles Are Starting To Recommend Buying. As we are nearing the bottom of this drop, we are starting to see more articles like this: BlackRock is suggesting we may be at a "once in a lifetime opportunity", Morgan Stanley says to start buying, and Warren Buffet has a stock pile of cash and rumors are he is starting to buy.
#4. Dollar Cost Averaging Works! Since nobody knows where the bottom will be exactly, smart investors continue to invest a fixed dollar amount in the market each month. This is called Dollar Cost Averaging. That way, when the markets are down you are buying more shares of your favorite stocks at cheaper prices. This helps drive down your average cost and increase your profits when the stock market moves back up.
