Nepsis Capital's 2014 Stock Market Predictions

TopSuccessful investing does not come from following the right predictions, it comes from following the right principles.

It is time once again for the Nepsis Capital annual stock market and investor predictions. For those investors who follow our blog posts closely, you will notice we started providing annual predictions back in 2012.

Why did we decide to start offering our own predictions?

Because we believe many investors have an Addiction to Predictions.

As we enter into 2014, we have once again combed through the many predictions economists, money managers, financial advisors and others have made for the financial markets in 2014.

Of course, the usual predictions on where the S&P 500 will end the year, to what are the best stocks or sector to own in the year top the list. And of course, we can't forget the predictions on when the Fed taper will start!

It would be interesting to see how many people really go back to the previous years predictions to see how predictors have fared. My guess is, you would find many were wrong with many of their predictions.

Unfortunately, for those who predicted the stock market would perform poorly in 2013, they missed out on a tremendous opportunity to not only invest in the stock market, but, more importantly, invest in great companies for the long-term at lower prices.

For those investors who missed out on great opportunities in 2013, there is some good news!

First, companies' stock prices go up and down on a regular basis. Of course, a stock market correction now would be ideal as it would potentially provide opportunities to buy into great companies at lower prices.

Why is this good news? Because it provides long-term investors the opportunity to take advantage of continually buying into great companies for the long-term.

Second, although stock prices go up and down during short periods of time, well run companies continue to invest and execute on their business plans, potentially providing patient investors the opportunity to participate in their success over time.

We believe investors should invest like a business owner, long-term and with patience!

Without further delay, below are our 2014 stock market predictions!

  1. Most predictions on where the S&P 500 will end 2014 will be wrong with the potential consequence of investors missing out on great opportunities!
  2. Company stock prices will move up and down irrationally - As usual.
  3. There will be opportunities to buy companies on sale - there always is!
  4. Timing the market will continue to be very difficult - That's nothing new.
  5. Focus on short-term performance will distract investors from making intelligent long-term investment decisions - A tragedy for short-term thinkers.
  6. Some Investors will let their emotions get the best of them - And thank goodness, it's what provides opportunities on sale!
  7. Investors will buy stocks that were op picks and sell them too soon once again focusing on short-term returns.
  8. Smart investors will view their investments like a business owner and continue to be patient with their investments - like us.
  9. Stock market volatility will continue to scare investors while creating great investment opportunities - Like it always does.
  10. Many investors will focus on predictions be frustrated by predictions and that they were wrong.

As you can see by our predictions, we really did not go out on a limb in making them. This is because, we believe that while many people love hearing predictions, it is not the predictions that make up a successful portfolio, it is the principles applied in investing which assist in having a successful portfolio!

As we enter into 2014, investors need to be ready for the unexpected. Why? Because the unexpected happens every year. Yet, it is the unexpected along with the fear investors show during unexpected periods which create great opportunities for long-term investors!
