What's Ahead for EVs

I’d like to tell you how you could have made an easy 30% investment profit during the month of June. Don’t worry, you didn’t have to sell magazine subscriptions or mow anybody’s lawn. 

All you had to do was take 20 minutes and check out the YouTube video I do every month with my Wealth Advisory partner, Jason Williams. 

At the beginning of each month Jason and I do a deep dive into each and every stock in the Wealth Advisory model portfolio. And then we give you the 10 stocks that we think will do the best for that month. 

It took us a while, but I think we came up with the perfect name for this video. We call it The Wealth Advisory Monthly Top Ten. Clever, right? 

Now, we like to have a little fun with this Top Ten thing, so we treat it like a fantasy sports draft. We alternate picks until we each have five, and because there are two of us, it’s 10 total stocks.  

New subscribers to our Wealth Advisory newsletter frequently ask which stock we like best. It’s a tough question because the Wealth Advisory model portfolio usually has around 30 stocks. Right now, 25 are up, five are down, and the average gain for all 30 is a robust 162%.Tough question. 

In other words, we like all of them...

So Jason and I started doing monthly Top Ten videos where we select 10 stocks from the Wealth Advisory model portfolio that we like the best... for the next month

Maybe we expect a great earnings report. Maybe there’s something in the chart we like (a technical setup). Could be other companies in the sector are rallying...

We’ve gotten pretty good at it.

In March of this year, I selected Rocket Companies (NYSE: RKT)  and the stock ran from around $24 to over $40 in the first few days of the month.

In May, Jason plucked At Home Group (NYSE: HOME) from the Wealth Advisory model portfolio, and then on May 5, the company announced it was being bought out for a decent premium. 

Another time, Jason nailed a 71% winner with Maxar (NYSE: MAXR) and a 51% winner with Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE: IIPR)... in the same month!

About That 30%...

Now, I get it. These days, when you hear about stocks like GameStop (NYSE: GME) or AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC) tripling in three days or whatever, the 30% that Jason and I can deliver in a month probably sounds kinda weak…

Heck, even that 51% and 71% in a month sorta pales in comparison.

But I’ll tell you straight out: Those people that made a fortune on GameStop, they were lotto winners. They just put it all on 28 black — and won.

Look, I have no problem with playing the lottery. I’ve sat at plenty of tables in Vegas. But it’s important to understand that GameStop isn’t investing. It’s gambling. If you’ve got the time and plenty of disposable income, then by all means, keep trying to strike it rich with the next ridiculous meme stock.

Personally, I prefer to stack the deck in my favor. That’s what investing is all about. Because good companies grow their business over time. They learn to lower expenses. They innovate and sell new and better products to their customers. And a good reputation means they attract more customers…

And all that means that revenues, profits and the stock price grow over time.

Making money with stocks doesn’t require hope. You don’t have to wonder if all those new best “friends” you made on a Reddit message board are telling you the truth…

Pay a reasonable price for a stake in good companies and the odds of making money will ever be in your favor.  

Made in the Shade, Drinking…

For the Wealth Advisory June Top Ten, I took a company called Lemonade (NYSE: LMND). If you don’t know Lemonade, it’s an online insurance company that uses artificial intelligence to manage its actuarial stuff and offer up quotes to customers. 

We recommended the stock to The Wealth Advisory subscribers in August 2020 at $61 a share. In December, it traded over $170 a share. Pretty good. 

Lemonade was trading around $85 at the beginning of June, when I took it for the Top Ten. By month’s end, it had rallied 30%, to $112. And you could’ve joined me if you had registered for The Wealth Advisory's YouTube channel and signed up to get notifications when a new Top Ten video was posted. 

And the thing is, you didn’t just miss out on a 30% winner. Because each of five my stocks posted double-digit gains in June. 

I did exactly what our subscribers pay me to do — help them make money. And I also have bragging rights over Jason for the next month. Doesn’t get much better than that.

We just posted the July Top Ten last week. If you want to check it out, you can do so totally free and with no obligation on YouTube. Here’s the link.

One more thing and I’ll let you go. As you probably know, our business is largely built on research. We do deep dives into investment opportunities to find the most compelling investment ideas for our subscribers.

And there hasn’t been a much hotter investment than the electric vehicle market. There also hasn’t been a more difficult space in which to make money than the EV sector. That’s because the EV market is fracturing. Last year's headline investments are this year's losers.

A whole new crop of EV winners are about to emerge. Now, this type of fracture is nothing new. Any time a new technology emerges, the early movers are rarely the long-term winners.

I’ve just finished a deep dive in the EV sector, and I’m sharing the results tomorrow. If you want to get a leg up on the next round of winning investments in the EV space, watch your email tomorrow…

Until next time,
