Exactly one year ago, we launched Profits Unlimited. At the time, we put together a video presentation about an astonishing technology trend called the Internet of Things (IoT). We explained that the IoT was the reason for creating the Profits Unlimited publication and portfolio, telling people that it was going to create incredible wealth for those who got in early.
In our video, we told investors that the IoT is a mega trend … one that is going to change the trajectory of the economy. We also said that the companies that were participating in this trend were going to benefit disproportionately.
Our call was spot-on. In one year, Profits Unlimited subscribers have gotten rich, and crushed the market while doing so. That’s exactly what we wanted to happen, and that’s exactly what has happened. And I’m going to show you how we did it … and why it’s not too late for you to get in.
Crushing the S&P 500
First, a bit of recap. Over the last year, Profits Unlimited has made 17 recommendations to subscribers. Of these, 12 stocks are companies that are laser-focused on the IoT. The remaining stocks focus on a second mega trend: the millennial generation, and the effect of their consumption preferences and habits.
If you track these stocks by using the closing price on the day we published our issues, this portfolio is up a remarkable 47% over the last year.
Of the 17 stocks, we ended up selling two of them. The first was for a small gain of 4% because it was failing critical criteria of my GoingUpness system. The second one we sold because it hit our stop-loss point of 8%.
Profits Unlimited uses a small stop-loss strategy, which means that all of our stocks have a stop-loss of between 8% and 12% depending on the stock … and that means we sell it when a stock falls to its assigned point.
Of the open positions in the portfolio today, 16 stocks are up and one is down. That means our hit rate, a measure of consistency of stock picking that’s calculated by comparing winners to losers, is at 83%.
Looking through the redacted portfolio positions that I’ve listed below, you’ll see that our biggest gainer is up over 60% … and 10 stocks have gains in excess of 15%.
When you compare Profits Unlimited as an equal-weighted portfolio to the S&P 500 … our subscribers are crushing the S&P 500 by 170%. In other words, someone who came in at the beginning is nearly tripling the gains of the S&P 500 right now.
Truthfully, that’s not all that Profits Unlimited has delivered for subscribers. There were six additional stocks that were given to subscribers when they joined. Tracked from June 1, 2016, to now on an equal-weighted basis, these stocks are up a combined 64% versus 17% for the S&P 500 … or nearly four times the performance of the S&P 500. The top stock in this group has gone up by 173%.
Now, I’m not telling you all of these things to boast or brag. I’m bringing this up to simply point out to you the benefits of using the techniques that Profits Unlimited employs to generate this kind of performance.
The first is a relentless focus on mega trends that have the power to generate huge returns because of their ability to shape and affect our lives and our economy. The second is my GoingUpness system of selecting stocks that are going up because of six unique points that I’ve come up with as a result of 20-plus years of investing.
I told you earlier that the IoT mega trend is still in its early innings. The millennials mega trend is also in its early innings. And right now, I’m preparing a new video presentation on a third mega trend, which I believe is going to completely and utterly reshape the health care sector of the economy.
