Nothing can go up forever. Even the stock market.
When the stock market goes down, most people get very stressed and upset.
But you don’t have to worry if you have a contrary investing method like I use. It’s the same method that I have taught to many others.
I have owned a portfolio of 10 safe Dow Jones stocks since 1994. That has been 24 years long as I write this article. That portfolio went through the dotcom crash in 2000-2003 AND the financial meltdown in 2008-2009.
That portfolio of the same 10 stocks is up 966% since 1994. The $15,000 it started with has grown to $166,000. And because of a unique feature of my low-risk automated system, HALF OF THE MONEY STAYED IN CASH the entire time. So the portfolio also doubled as an emergency fund.
My system isn’t just a buy and hold strategy. It is a scientific and systematic way to buy low, sell high, and earn profits over a lifetime.
That is why I love it when the stock market goes down. It’s an opportunity to buy more of the proven stocks that I will sell later at a higher price – for MORE PROFIT.
There is a systematic approach to doing this. It isn’t taught in business schools or most investment courses. But it can be taught. Helping others learn this system is the reason I created this website, write my books, and publish my monthly newsletter.
Now there are more people who love it when the stock market goes down. People like Hunter B., one of my newsletter subscribers:
I’m 30 years old and have plenty of time to let this system work for me. I really enjoy not having to watch my [stock] position and worry what it might do. With AIM, my action is already determined for me. Makes for stress free investing. — Hunter B.
Hunter is referring to AIM: The Automated Investing Method. That is the method that was first created by Robert Lichello over 30 years ago. Since then I have expanded and improved on the method by using a type of long term option called LEAPS.
With LEAPS, you profit even more from the inevitable ups and downs in the stock market. That’s why I love it when the stock market drops, and you will love it too when you have a systematic way to always buy low and sell high.
Realize, Yes – there will eventually be a correction (a drop of 10%) and maybe even a bigger drop. But a crash is your best friend if you have a contrary investing strategy to buy low and sell high. Email me at and I’ll send you my free investing book or the first year newsletter subscription to teach you how.
