Before I outline our ๐—š๐—ข๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—ฆ and ๐—˜๐—ซ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—–๐—ง๐—”๐—ง๐—œ๐—ข๐—ก๐—ฆ for 2021 I want to quickly highlight the performance of our investments in 2020!


๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ฉ๐—œ๐—˜๐—ช


The year started off with the entire market being ๐—ฅ๐—ข๐—–๐—ž๐—˜๐—— by the coronavirus! In fact, the S&P500 suffered 2 of its largest 1 day declines in history on the 12th & 16th March (10% & 12%). As somebody who credits a lot of my investment outperformance to ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐— ๐—”๐—œ๐—ก๐—œ๐—ก๐—š ๐—–๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—  during volatility - I was able to just about keep my composure, however I must admit that I struggled to keep my cool!


๐—”๐—ฆ ๐—œ๐—ง ๐—›๐—”๐—ฃ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—ก๐—˜๐——...


I was in Thailand during the market sell-off and I remember pacing around my hotel room debating with myself on what I should do.... ๐—ฆ๐—ช๐—œ๐—ง๐—–๐—› to defensive stocks? ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—Ÿ-๐—ข๐—จ๐—ง and sit on the sidelines? OR ๐—–๐—ข๐— ๐— ๐—œ๐—ง to riding the wave!


Given that I had been too late to sidestep the washout, I decided to research and ๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—”๐—— ๐—จ๐—ฃ on stocks that I believed were oversold! This ensured that we were positioned well once the market kicked back into gear!


This was 100% the best move as stocks rebounded strongly from March and despite indexes such as the S&P500 finishing up 16% for the year, our investment portfolio grew over ๐Ÿด๐Ÿฎ%!


The ๐Ÿฑ ๐—•๐—˜๐—ฆ๐—ง ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—™๐—ข๐—ฅ๐— ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฆ in our stock portfolio this year were:

These 5 stocks delivered us ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ข๐—ฅ๐— ๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฆ ๐—š๐—”๐—œ๐—ก๐—ฆ and were the stand out performers however, our investments would not have achieved such high returns this year without our exposure to ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐˜‚, ๐—˜๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜†๐—ท๐—ฒ๐˜, ๐—š๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ด๐—น๐—ฒ, ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ, ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ, ๐—”๐——๐—”, ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—˜๐—ฑ๐—ด๐—ฒ, ๐—”๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป & ๐—ง๐—ถ๐—น๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜†.

In March, my portfolio was down for the year... With 99% of other investors. At times I was tempted to sell... stop the bleeding as the say! However, I've experienced sharp corrections & bear markets before and every time the best move has been to ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐— ๐—”๐—œ๐—ก ๐—–๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—  ๐—”๐—ก๐—— ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—”๐—ฌ ๐—ข๐—•๐—๐—˜๐—–๐—ง๐—œ๐—ฉ๐—˜.


When investors panic and markets begin to fall, entire industries sell-off and many stocks are wrongfully brought down with the market. This creates rare opportunities for investors that should not be passed up! Therefore, once we've analysed the reasons behind the sell-off - We need to ๐—•๐—˜ ๐—•๐—ฅ๐—”๐—ฉ๐—˜, buy into weakness and sit tight!


If you wish to wait for confirmation that the market has bottomed - it will already be too late and you will have missed out on the easy gains available from the inevitable ๐—ฆ๐—›๐—”๐—ฅ๐—ฃ ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—•๐—ข๐—จ๐—ก๐——.

After another big year, I spent the month of December capturing gains and re-applying these profits to the positions that I believe will outperform this year. You can check out the recent changes to our portfolio below:


NEW POSITIONS


XRP - I sold my XRP at a huge profit back in November however the cryptocurrency was recently wrecked due to allegations by the SEC. I now believe that the upside potential for XRP once again outweighs the downside risk and represents a good calculated opportunity in 2021! You can check out the reasons why I believe in XRP by clicking HERE!


Alibaba - Another "buy the short-term weakness" trade. There is a lot of negative sentiment towards Alibaba right now due the failed IPO of Ant Financial & the recent scrutiny of big tech from Chinese Regulators. I have seen this before with JD.com back in 2018 when there were many allegations about the company and its management. I was able to double my investment in JD back then and I expect Alibaba to recover in 2021!

INCREASED POSITIONS



Tencent Music - The stock is up almost 50% since I posted an article 2 months ago outlining why Tencent Music was 1 of my top 5 stock picks - Check it out HERE!


Tilray - One of the few US based cannabis stocks available on the NASDAQ. Should benefit as states within the US begin to legalise marijuana.


Bitcoin - With 2 of my Bitcoin positions up 200%, I will need to close them in order to capture profits and reapply. This will allow us to benefit from the magic of compound interest. As my cash position is over 10%, I was able to set tight stop-losses on these trades rather than close them whilst opening their replacements. Therefore our position in Bitcoin is now greater than usual however, this has proven lucrative so far with Bitcoin rising 10% since I doubled up on the crypto!


Check out why I believe BITCOIN COULD HIT $1M.


GW - My favourite medicinal cannabis stock. Right now, GW gets almost 90% of their revenues from the US. However, they are slowly rolling out their operations across the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain & France. This will improve revenues and diversify their business.


REDUCED POSITIONS


Ethereum - Taken profits, with the plan of re-applying and compounding my investments in Ethereum.


CLOSED POSITIONS


Baidu - The stock increased 50% in December and I believe that the stock could well pullback soon representing a better entry point.


Activision - I believe the stock could lag this year after a terrific 12 months and as the economy reopens in 2021.


With the portfolio rebalanced, we will continue to benefit from the clear growth trends that have served us so well over the past couple of years. I am particularly ๐—ข๐—ฃ๐—ง๐—œ๐— ๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—œ๐—– about a couple of industries that we have exposure to and I'm very confident that we'll continue to grow our investments faster than almost every other method out there!


Well done to everybody who grew their savings this year ๐Ÿ‘ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ง๐—œ๐—ก๐—จ๐—˜ ๐—ง๐—ข ๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—จ๐—ฆ๐—ง in our portfolio & trading strategy and we will reach our financial goals even faster over the next couple of years!
