A beaten-down sector has been revived during the pandemic…
There’s one sector that has defied all odds during the shutdown, transforming from an investment to “ditch to one” drawing the eye of Wall Street.
That sector? Retail.
Who’s leading the charge? What many call the “Robinhood investor.”
Robinhood said it saw a historic three-million new accounts in the first quarter – an astounding number as we know the market has struggled to find stability since March.
But the commission-free trading platform noted that small investors are busier than ever and making money while doing it. And it seems like most of these newbie investors have focused their attention on the once struggling retail sector.
And while many question the legitimacy of this rally, there’s one thing for sure…
The retail sector has come back to life and Wall Street has mostly missed out on this rally.
Where’s the money?
A bundle of retail stocks that have become popular with the everyday investor has gained a whopping 61% since the market bottomed out – outperforming the 45% gain of hedge fund favorites.
Pretty impressive numbers for a group of new traders, huh?
And it makes sense that there has been this spike in newbies, seeing that with the stay at home orders, many new investors charged towards small-cap companies.
So, it seems like the next obvious step would be to throw your hat into the retail ring with the rest of them.
But I don’t want you to follow their lead exactly. Right now isn’t the time for a long-term investment.
Because truthfully, no one knows when this rally could end…
How can I get some?
Now, just because a long-term investment isn’t the answer doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the action.
Because when you trade options, it allows you to capitalize on small pops in the market.
I know we’ve talked about options a lot here – but I see some significant possibilities for quick and easy gains as the sector continues to thrive amidst the uncertainty.
And here’s the best part, you can set yourself up for gains by doing what Wall Street wishes it would have done…
Following the money.
Now, the retail sector is filled with thousands of stocks, and not every stock will be a good one.
But I’ve seen thousands of dollars being poured into three specific stocks, and they happen to be a few of my favorites…
- Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)
- NIKE, Inc. (NKE)
- Lululemon Athletica Inc. (LULU)
And here’s how to play it…
Purchase call options, ensure that expiration is two weeks out, set your profit target for your desired gain, and kick back and relax.
Before you know it, the money will be rolling in.
Speaking of following the money…
No matter what happens next, I’m giving my 1450 Club readers trade recommendations based on the most up-to-date market activity every single day…
In fact, I’m able to see massive market moves the second they become public…
And that’s led to extraordinary wins like 100% on EWZ in under 24 hours, 159% on XRT in six days, and even a 55% gain on GSK in under 10 minutes just yesterday.
We’ll be at it again today at 9:30am sharp. If you want in, you need to start here now. You’ll be glad you did.
In the Spotlight: The pandemic’s heavy-hitting impact on the oil industry
BP plc (BP) announced that it would be writing down the value of its assets by as much as $17.5 billion as the need for oil has sunk due to the pandemic.
The company went on to stress the impact that this health crisis could have on the global economy and the oil industry.
BP expanded further, explaining that the drop in demand over such a “sustained period” could cut prices over the next three years by 27% – an unthinkable fall.
And this impact has many wondering what could come next for the oil industry.
The answer? No one knows.
But I’ll be keeping you updated for sure.
