That’s right, even in today’s bear market, retail investors have big opportunity right now.
If you’re a new investor or entered the market during the bull run, chances are your portfolio is down significantly.
But don’t let your first bear market shake you off because there are numerous opportunities out there that have the potential to yield big returns.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ve more than likely capitalized on opportunities such as AMC, HYMC, Shiba Inu Coin, Terra Classic, and Bitcoin during properly and fortunately timed moments.
So, what’s new?
In this article, I’m going to go over the opportunities I see that lie ahead for retail investors.
None of the information on my blog is financial advice but rather speculative content based on current information and trends in the market.
And with that being said, let’s get started.
Not Invested in The Markets Yet?
If you or someone you know are not invested in the markets yet, the two articles below are going to walk you through, step-by-step on how to buy stocks for the very first time and how to buy cryptocurrency for the very first time, too.
Much information on how to invest in the markets is outdated so I wanted to create easy guides for beginners.
You can read them here to get started:
Remember, one of the greatest wealth you can share with someone else is that of knowledge.
Opportunities in the Stock Market Today
During a bear market share prices tend to tumble, hence why many long-term investor’s portfolios tend to lose value.
And although we can’t entirely time the bottom, we know that at some point the stock market is at a massive fire sale.
Value investors such as you and I can pick up shares from our favorite companies at these low prices before the market reverses trend.
Economists, analysts, and entrepreneurs alike predict there is still room for another 10%-15% drop in the markets.
But for the record, these are just predictions after all.
The point here is for value investors to capitalize on this falling trend by purchasing low and holding during the next bull market.
Whether you choose to capitalize on opportunities presented in a bull market or not will ultimately be up to you.
However, capitalizing during a bull market will require value investors to buy during a bear market, not during the bull market.
After being involved in the retail community for almost three years now, there are stocks and crypto that just stand out as having big potential during the next bull run and I’m going to discuss them below.
Stocks Worth Buying During a Bear Market
None of the information provided below is financial advice, but rather speculative in nature based on market trends and current information at the time of publication.
AMC Entertainment Stock (AMC)
You’ve probably heard all the ruckus on AMC and ‘meme stocks’.
It’s true, the stock jumped from $5 per share to an all-time high of $72 per share.
AMC Entertainment stock is currently trading below $6 again due to this bear market.
What makes this stock such an interesting value investment is that it has a huge community made up of millions of people who plan to take its current price up again.
Plus, the company has beat earnings every quarter since 2021.
Investing in the largest movie theater chain in the world could prove to pay out big during the next bull market.
SPY Stock (SPY)
I’ve talked about SPY stock numerous times on my blog.
It’s even made the list of best divided stocks to buy for passive income.
SPY is the S&P 500 index fund that tracks the top 500 performing companies in the U.S and has been a favorite amongst value investors for a long time.
Warren Buffett himself says he’s moving 90% of his wealth to this specific stock when he departs us.
Just this thought should speak for itself.
SPY has a great track record for its increased value over time.
Vanguard Real Estate REIT (VNQ)
I believe every value investor should have at least one great performing REIT, or Real Estate Investment Trust.
VNQ is Vanguard’s commercial real estate investment trust with a great track record since the recession of 2008.
The REIT is also on the list of the best dividend stocks to buy for passive income.
While the real estate market is set to retrace some of its gains, keeping an eye on this stock may provide retail investors with big opportunity during the next bull market.
GameStop Stock (GME)
What GameStop is doing with their NFT marketplace is genius and not a lot of people know about it.
Wonder why, *ahem, mainstream media*.
The video game company is making it available for people around the world to own actual digital items inside games through the use of blockchain technology.
The opportunity this technology will bring to entrepreneurs and flippers alike in the future is massive.
Investing in GameStop early on could have massive potential as our economy shifts towards the digital/metaverse economy.
Amazon Stock (AMZN)
Amazon is now affordable for just about any value investor to buy shares from.
The company stock traded above $3K per share before its 20-for-1 stock split made it available for everyone to purchase.
AMZN is currently trading below $100 per share and it’s a steal whether you’re anticipating another 10%-15% market drop or not.
Tesla Stock (TSLA)
Despite what you might think of eccentric billionaire Elon Musk, you cannot deny what the entrepreneur has created is fascinating in its own respect.
Tesla stock has shown outstanding growth in the past even after stock splits.
We’ve seen this company’s stock reach massive popularity during the previous bull market.
In fact, it was right under AMC Entertainment stock as the most searched for stock on Google in 2021.
Meta Platforms Stock (META)
Most boomer investors, like mainstream media, don’t truly understand the potential of Meta.
While Zucks might currently get made fun of by Wall Street ego, there’s a huge opportunity investing in early technology, especially a technology that one day may change the world as we know it.
Today’s innovators will carry the baton, whether old power likes it or not.
Crypto to Buy During a Bear Market
Here’s a list of cryptocurrencies I’m keeping an eye on in today’s bear market.
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Cardano (ADA)
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Terra Classic (LUNC)
- Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB)
- Dogecoin (DOGE)
- Polkadot (DOT)
- Polygon (MATIC)
