Safety Beats Growth in 2018
Nov 30, 2018

The Indian stock market just had a good month. The BSE Sensex is up about 5% in November.

But this recovery has come after a lot of negativity this year, especially in October.

Look at this chart...

Clearly, safe bluechips have outperformed risky mid and small caps this year.

But here's the most important thing, dear reader...

If you could travel one year back in time and show yourself this chart, would you have been surprised?

I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been surprised to see this chart a year ago.


You see, I was expecting a correction last year. I didn't know when the correction would exactly happen.

But I knew it was getting close.

So I started warning my subscribers. Here are some of the pieces I wrote...

But when the market proved me right, I didn't sit back and rest on my laurels.

  • We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. - Warren Buffett

Keeping this in mind, I started recommending carefully chosen safe stocks to my subscribers.
