Our team is taking time off for the Holidays, so my weekly video is coming to you a couple days early. This week I wanted to share a few lessons I learned in 2020.

And I’ve learned a lot from this tumultuous year.

Unprecedented government intervention propped up financial markets more than I thought possible. There were also surprise stock market winners … some of which I flagged early, in the face of skepticism.

In today’s video, I share my most important lesson of all.

Despite the historic blow to the economy, 2020 was a good year for stocks. But if you want to protect and grow your portfolio in 2021, heed this lesson.

Not Everything Is as It Seems…

Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. That’s why smart investors adapt and prepare for what’s next.

Watch today’s video to hear what you need to prepare your portfolio for in 2021. You’ll also discover that:

  • Federal Reserve liquidity and government stimulus checks sent stocks soaring … but not all of them. This reveals a critical flaw in this year’s bull run. (2:08-4:33)
  • A surprising sector topped the list of best ETF performers for 2020. (5:16-7:50)
  • This is the single most important lesson to learn about the stock market in 2020. (8:41-13:01)
