Bear markets are scary, but they create tremendous opportunities for long-term investors willing to do the research necessary to uncover bargains. However, it’s critically important not to be fooled into thinking something is a bargain simply because it has declined by 30%, 40%, 50% or more.
In order to help our subscribers navigate the bear market, the Boyar Research team is about to release a special report titled Fresh Looks: A Special Opportunity Issue. Because this is such a timely and important issue, we are also selling it on an a la carte basis.
The report will contain profiles of companies we believe to be great investment opportunities because of the recent selloff that have attractive long-term fundamentals as well as catalysts for capital appreciation. All reports are based on intensive research from our team of highly seasoned analysts with an average of 20+ years of experience.
Opportunities in a Bear Market and Past Performance
Make no mistake: bear markets are difficult. That’s why, in times like these, having access to the work of a team that has published research since 1975 (through a combined 24 stock market corrections and bear markets) is a significant competitive advantage.
It’s important to remember this: those who stick with their positions during difficult times (and add to existing positions or initiate new ones) are typically handsomely rewarded – provided those positions are attractively valued and have catalysts for capital appreciation. These are the times that independent thinking, experience and perspective really matter.
