Retail Investors Have Big Opportunity in the Market Right Now

Stocks and Crypto to Buy in a Bear Market | Opportunity in the market right now.

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Much information on how to invest in the markets is outdated so I wanted to create easy guides for beginners.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

6 Easy Ways You Can Become More Money Conscious

6 Easy Ways You Can Become More Money Conscious

I’m writing this intro after I’ve finished this entire post and let me tell you, WOW. You’re about to gain perspective. Here are 6 easy ways you can become more money conscious.

#1. Check Your Bank Account More Frequently

Check your bank account more frequently to become more money conscious

Become more money conscious by checking your bank account more frequently.

This creates a great habit and provides you with awareness of where your money is going at all times.

I have multiple accounts though…

Good!

You can actually keep tabs on all your accounts by using a budget tracker app like Mint.

I personally enjoy Mint because it provides me with a portfolio detailing my balance in investments, checking and savings accounts, as well as my credit cards.

What’s cool about the app is that it also shows you your net worth. This gives you an idea of your debit vs credit lines. Super helpful!

#2. Learn To Let Go Of Money

Become more money conscious by learning to let go of money

Number two on our list on ways you can become more money conscious is to learn how to let go of money.

What exactly does this mean?

Well, it means to let go of this concept you have of money. We tend to give the dollar more value than it’s actually worth.

Remember, money is merely a tool that can help you unlock more doors which lead to more opportunities.

Any examples?

Glad ya asked.

If you keep your money collecting dust in a personal savings account your money will never grow. Inflation will continue to devalue it.

Now say you move your money into a high yielding savings or money account that earns you a little bit of interest a month. Now that’s having your money work for you. It’s not collecting dust anymore, your dollars are coming back with a few cents and dollars here and there.

This ladies and gentlemen is how you make money in your sleep. At a very small level of course, but you get the idea.

What about the letting go of money part?

See the thing is most people are afraid to let go of their money, rather move their money into different accounts.

People find it risky if the money isn’t under the mattress or nice and safe in the savings account. We need to stop holding on to money so tightly and learn how to let it go so it can work for us.

This mindset makes us more money conscious

Exactly.

This mindset of letting go of money makes moving money into different account less scary which in turn grows your accounts.

#3. Invest In The Stock Market

Invest In The Stock Market To Become More Money Conscious

Now that we’ve covered letting go of the fear to let go of the money, I strongly suggest that you learn how to invest in the stock market.

Note I said, “learn how to”, I didn’t say to invest in the stock market.

Reason being is once you’ve learned how to invest in the stock market you can then make the decision whether or not you want your money to earn you anywhere from 7%-10%+ on your investments (*smiles).

Read: How To Invest In The Stock Market (Step by Step)

What will investing in the stock market teach me? How does it make me more money conscious?

Investing in the stock market is going to teach you many great things.

  1. It’s going to make you feel great about investing your money.
  2. You’ll gain insight to the market and see the value of you money go waaaay up, and then up and down on occasion.
  3. Challenged to making tough decisions when it comes to buying and selling shares (calculated risks).
  4. Teaches you delayed gratification and patience.

Even if you don’t invest in the stock market, just learning about it will make you more money conscious in the sense that you’ll understand about alternatives that can literally multiply your money overnight.

#4. Strive To Increase Your Income

Become more money conscious by increasing your income

Yes! My favorite one here. Let’s strive to increase our income.

This one is pretty easy to understand how it will make you more money conscious. If you’ve grown tired of going paycheck to paycheck that in itself should push you to increase your income.

When you strive to increase your income you’re actively putting intentions out in the universe. This is good!

How can I increase my income?

Well, that depends. You can increase your income by getting a raise or through a promotion at your job.

You can also increase your income through side hustles outside of work.

We have a page dedicated to side hustles which teaches our readers how to start their own online business, how to make money from home, how to start a blog, and much more! Click our side hustles tab at the top of the page or click here to read more.

While we’re here, don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter! I personally email our readers every week with new posts.

#5. Get Into Sales

Some of you may be saying wtf. But, hopefully not lol!

Sales is a great way to expand your money conscious mind because it teaches you the fundamentals of making money based on results.

Sales won’t pay you by the hour. How much you make depends on how much effort and strategy you put into your work.

Once you learn this skill you’ll be able to make money anywhere without having to rely on an employer.

Step out of your comfort zone

Sales will teach you to step out of your comfort zone.

It’s challenging and uncomfortable but every moment of the experience is growth! Ladies and gentlemen, growth is progress and progress leads to success.

A position in sales forces you to grow. When you’re tired of not making any money it will force you to grow. When you’ve become stuck at a level it will force you to grow. You will never see money the same again. Especially when you’re a top performer.

#6. Continue To Learn About Money

Franknez.com

What better way to become more money conscious than to continue to learn about money.

Not only are our readers continuously learning about money but even I’M learning more and more every day. My experiences and passion for finance has allowed me to share my knowledge with you.

I was just recently listening to a motivational video online and someone so beautifully said, “You’re never too old to learn, and you’re never too young to teach”.

Guys, I love this. I love teaching about finance and business. I’m obsessed with my work and my mission to educate our generation.

Where can I learn more about money?

Obviously from Franknez.com! I teach you about personal finance, how to earn leveraged income, how to invest, the importance of saving money, and how to have money work for you.

But,

I get my fix by learning from Dave Ramsey, Andrei Jikh, Graham Stephen, Robert Kiyosaki, and Richard Fain (just started watching him).

I also gain insight to business and sales (besides my own experiences) through Grant Cardone, Patrick Bet-David and Gary Vaynerchuck.

Watch YouTube videos and read books. There are so many platforms and ways you can continue to learn about money.

Final Thoughts

By becoming money conscious you’ll be able to better distinguish the difference between needs and wants when it comes to finances in your life.

The knowledge you gain from the experiences in this excerpt will help you make wiser choices when it comes to your financial security.

You will learn that money is merely a tool to help you progress in your financial journey.
