Steve's no stranger to big calls...
In March 2009, Steve Sjuggerud predicted huge gains in stocks, even while investors were still shaking from the financial crisis. He told his readers that "the next seven to 10 years could be phenomenal." Stocks are up around 300%.
In May 2011, Steve said that, "Today's U.S. real estate is the most affordable it's been ever." Prices have soared since.
In 2015, Steve called investing in China a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." Anyone who followed his research and recommendations could have made a killing.
And last night, Steve made his latest big call... Commodities could rise 500% over the next few years.
When Steve his looking for a great investment, he wants something that's cheap, hated, and in an uptrend. And that's exactly where commodities are today.
This could be the start of the biggest boom in commodities prices we've seen in generations.
Longtime readers know commodities are an important part of a well-diversified portfolio.
But, as Steve pointed out, commodities "can be incredibly painful or incredibly profitable." So you want the best research to tell you which commodities to buy now.
That's where Steve's brand-new research service called, True Wealth Opportunities: Commodities comes in.
Steve and his team have done all the hard work for you the past few months. They've figured out exactly which commodities to buy, how to own them, and the optimal entry and exit points for each one. They've even created an entire portfolio of 14 positions.
And, as Steve explained last night, we could see hundreds-of-percent gains in the next few years.
Q: Why don't you list your sources for scientific studies? – A.P.
A: You can usually find our primary source linked in the "What We're Reading" section of the issue. But we look at dozens of different sources for our essays. For example, in our recent essay on suicide, "It's Time to Discuss This Taboo Topic," we used 28 sources. Depending on the subject and the level of research involved, that number can be even higher.
Q: I couldn't watch Steve's big reveal last night. Where can I watch a replay? – M.J.
A: Last night, Steve unveiled what he's calling America's "Next Big Bull Market." During a special live event, Steve shared the details of an asset poised to move much higher... and the best way to take advantage of this move. You can watch the replay here, and for more information on Steve's newsletter, True Wealth Opportunities: Commodities, click here.
Q: When working out asset allocation, would you consider income from a lifetime annuity/pension as cash? What about your social security income? Or don't you consider either of them in any way from an asset allocations standpoint? – C.C.
A: Here's an easy way to think about what asset category your investment is. If the investment is liquid (you can get your money quickly) and won't lose value over the next few days, consider it as cash... cash in your mattress, or your savings account, or checking account. A pension is not cash.
Anything with a stream of regular income paid to you contractually should be considered a fixed-income asset (akin to a bond). Both a pension and Social Security payments are like owning a bond that pays regular income (monthly in these cases). The only difference is that neither pays back a lump sum of principal like a bond does.
Q: I've recently been told by both a medical doctor and a clinical psychologist that one of the best things you can do to try to avoid [Alzheimer's] is to exercise. I've noticed, on my own, that those elderly persons who are active and involved seem to keep all their mental acuity much longer than those persons who are either sedentary or uninvolved in many activities.
As an active, involved 78-yr old who also participates in a Senior Exercise class four times a week, I'm hoping that information holds true. Even if it doesn't help in that aspect, it certainly is good for us, whatever our age! – J.M.
A: Yes, yes, yes. Exercise signals to the body that you're alive. And by moving and being active, you do two things: extend your life and feel better. Your doctor should be writing down a prescription for exercise, not drugs.
A study released this spring tied exercise to dementia. It was a long study out of Sweden, extending for about 44 years. They classified women by cardiovascular fitness. Those in the highest fitness group decreased their risk for dementia by about 88% compared to the moderately fit women. And those who did develop dementia got it much later in life if they had higher fitness levels.
So if you're not already, get up and get moving.
