Nepsis Capital's 2012 Stock Market Predictions
December 27, 2011 1:39:00 PM
Successful investing does not come from following the right predictions, it comes from following the right principles.
As we come to another year-end, it is traditional for many experts to start touting their predictions for the next year as investors anxiously attempt to decide who will be right and who will be wrong and how it will affect their investment decisions.
From predicting how much the S&P 500 will be up or down to the top stocks to own in the next year, many investors will focus on these types of predictions to help determine their investment decisions for the upcoming year. So, it is only fitting that we at Nepsis Capital offer our Top Ten investment predictions for 2012...
NOW FOR OUR TOP TEN 2012 INVESTMENT PREDICTIONS:
- Most predictions on where the S&P 500 will end 2012 will be wrong.
- Company stock prices will move up and down irrationally - What else is new.
- There will be opportunities to purchase companies on sale - there always is.
- Timing the market will be very difficult - As usual.
- Focus on short-term performance will distract investors from making intelligent long-term investment decisions.
- Some Investors will let their emotions get the best of them.
- Investors will purchase stocks that were op picks and sell them too soon once again focusing on short-term returns.
- Smart investors will be patient with their investments - like us.
- Stock market volatility will continue to scare investors while creating great investment opportunities - Like it usually does.
- Many investors will be frustrated by predictions and the fact that they were wrong.
As you can see by our predictions, we really don't go out on a limb. Yet, more importantly, I think our predictions state the obvious - No one really knows what will happen this year, but, as the quote at the top of the page states, true investing really is about following the right PRINCIPLES, not the right PREDICTIONS.
As we enter 2012, there is no question that the global economy rests on shaky ground. As the Euro nations continue to work through their debt crisis and the U.S. prepare for another election and its own economic issues, there will be many events which will provide investors plenty to think about and predict as they continue to assess quality investment opportunities in 2012.
