December 30, 2016 12:18:39 PM
Yes, it is once again that time of year! It is time for our Nepsis Capital Top 10 Predictions for the Stock Market in 2017! As in years past, we once again were 10 for 10 in our predictions for the previous year. A trend we intend on keeping!
You may be asking yourself, why does Nepsis do these annual predictions, especially the type of predictions we provide. The answer is simple – It is because many investors continue to make big investment mistakes that can have an impact on their ability to Invest For Success! My hope is that our predictions can provide a level of clarity for investors that will enhance their investment success.
It continues to amaze me to see the amount of predictions investors see on an annual basis. Of course, one of my big beefs about predictions is that most people don’t really pay attention to those predictions down the road to determine their success or failure.
We live in an investment environment where I think many investors show indications of an addiction to prediction mentality! Why is that? Behavior scientists and theorists would say that it is due to the feeling the person experiences when they think they are getting a “leg up” or “inside scoop”.
Of course, everyone knows that there is no crystal ball, but people suspend their disbelief to latch on to a silver bullet or quick fix solution instead of being disciplined with their investment strategy. Let’s face it, there are a lot of people that love hearing predictions and unfortunately, I believe many people focus more on predictions than they do on their investment process.
So in an effort to keep our streak going, I will once again be making my bold predictions for 2017.
As I mentioned earlier, do investors really pay attention to see how accurate the experts’ predictions are? No, of course not! Therefore, I am going to make it easy for you and let you know how we have fared in our predictions since we started providing them in 2012.
In the four years we have been making predictions, we are 5-5! That’s right, we have been right on every single one! I realize that may be an absolute surprise for some. However, we have had a great track record because of the Investment Philosophy and Strategy we adhere to in helping investors be successful in accomplishing their investment goals.
