Every time my phone starts ringing off the hook with TV networks asking me to make an appearance on their shows, I know there’s a Reality Gap big enough to make some real money.
In the last 13 days, I’ve been invited on 7 times – talking about the coronavirus and what it means to markets and individual stocks.
The News Media is having a field day over China’s coronavirus outbreak.
Every minute there’s a new update on infections, possible mutations, comparisons to SARS…
This human tragedy is being milked for all it’s worth.
The reason why is simple: fear sells. No TV news segment, no news website, no cable news update is complete without a coronavirus update, because that’s what gets views.
And more views mean more money selling ads.
It’s overtaken the top of the news agenda – the President’s impeachment trial, Monday’s Iowa caucus, even the record-breaking wildfires still raging in Australia.
Not to mention the things you can actually act on, like Amazon’s extraordinary earnings surprise…
And the News Media isn’t the only culprit here, either.
Big Government is getting in on the game too, with health organizations under-reacting, then over-reacting, and now issuing jarring statements:
This morning, just after 10:00am, this headline came out – “CDC: Preparing as If Coronavirus Is ‘The Next Pandemic'” – leading to a 250-point drop in the Dow.
And lost amid all this noise is a Reality Gap between what’s being said and what should really matter…
And the truth is, we’re turning the corner on this outbreak. As the very numbers the News Media use to whip up fear show, coronavirus cases are peaking.
The end is in sight.
So it’s time for you to position yourself for the buying opportunity to come…
