This Crash Indicator has Bad News for 2021 podcast

Dec 11, 2020

If the year 2020 has reinforced anything, it is the fact that stock market predictions should be taken with a huge pinch of salt.

No one would have predicted what transpired in 2020. The markets went from a multi-year low to a new all-time high in a matter of few months, thus proving almost every pundit wrong.

But if predictions are useless, how does one take a view of the future?

Well, there's an approach out there that can prove to be quite effective. What exactly is this approach and how does it work?

Do take a look.

Rahul Shah

Rahul Shah (Research Analyst), Managing Editor, Microcap Millionaires has led the team from the front in developing some of our most stringent and rewarding research processes. As per his own admission, the turning point in Rahul's life as a financial analyst came a few years back when he got introduced to the works of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. From Buffett, he understood the value of investing in good quality business with powerful moats and strong management teams. Charlie Munger on the other hand inspired him to be a lifelong learner and use mental models in order to arrive at the crux of matters across most disciplines. Rahul firmly believes that in order to be successful at investing, you have to do the big things right and possess a great temperament and a contrarian streak.

While I agree withe overall assessment, I Think we can not use absolute numbers like p/e 25-27 over 15-20 years.
Most companies with High mcaP nowadays are from Tech sector and they have high P/Es, so maybe theres a need to calibrate the value of P/E for predicting a market fall

Dear Rahul Ji
Greetings for the day
I thanks for your update on market and also agreed. But sometimes do not understand, like just before month we invested in Top5 10x project almost little below the suggested range. Do you think that we should book partial profit when the investment is for 2/3 years perspective?
Thanks and Best Regards
