The average bull market lasts 63 months. That means June 9th was when we officially hit the possible expiration date.
So that begs the question: Is this bull market over?
There are 2 main differences about this bull market that says the party will continue a while longer.
1) Economic expansion is slower this time around. You see, we are used to 3%+ GDP growth coming out of most recessions. This one took a while longer to get heated up with most of the time stuck between 1-2% GDP growth. This means we have not created excesses like most expansions from the past which is the harbinger for future recessions. In fact, signs point to growth on the rise later this year which equates to more legs for this bull market.
2) Still too much money on the sidelines or in underperforming bond funds. The reason being that the current generation of investors were horribly burned twice in recent memory (the bear markets of 2000 - 2002 and then again 2008 - 2009). This means they will be late to the party once again. As they climb on board, stocks will make another leap higher.
What to Do Next?
The above may give the false impression that the bull market will go on unabated and just about any stock will do. But certainly you understand that some shares will do better than others.
To put the odds strongly in your favor, you should rely upon a proven stock rating system like the Zacks Rank with audited results of 26% per year since 1988. However, there are over 220 of these #1 Ranked Strong Buy stocks to consider at any given time.
That is fine if you are a professional investor with 60-80 hours per week to focus on researching the full list. For the rest of you, it's usually better to consider a hand-selected group of these stocks that you can more easily put into your portfolio.
My Reitmeister Trading Alert portfolio currently has 10 stocks that fit the bill. These are the same positions I put my own family's money into.
Normally this portfolio is closed to new members. But we are opening it up once again for a limited time. If you want to learn more, then best do so before it closes up again on Saturday June 21st at midnight.
Starting now, you can get instant access to the latest picks from our market-beating strategies that produce average gains of +19.1%, +31.1%, +57.8% and +62.3% per year.
