Who is the Moron at Zacks?

Who is the moron at Zacks calling for a correction just before the market sprang to a new all-time high on Wednesday?

I am guilty as charged. But still being 70% long stocks this week was not really the dumbest move of my investment career. Nor do I really think that I have been proven wrong just yet.

It reminds me of when I loaded up with stocks on December 12, 2011 only for the market to continue south for another week. Then the wisdom of the move came to light with a strong 5 month rally. So lets' see where things stand in about a week.

Let me tell you who is most certainly not a moron... and that is Brian Bolan our Growth Stock strategist. In 2012 he was clearly the best stock picker here at Zacks with market stomping performance.

And now he is ready to embark on an ambitious new journey to find the best small cap aggressive growth stocks packed full of Zacks Rank goodness. This new portfolio just launched and I recommend you check it out now before it closes to the public on Monday April 15th.

New Research on Breakout Growth Stocks

Zacks has just developed a unique strategy that turns up the stealthiest aggressive growth stocks. Then it sells after Wall Street notices them and drives up their share prices. Testing shows gains of +15-25% and more in 1 to 3 months. Best of all, risk is greatly reduced.

Please note: Our new strategy closes to the public this weekend.
