Last night, I dreamed of a genie giving me the possibility to know and retrieve at my wish the next 12 months stock market information.
That is what I would do:
- Check how the market trend will go (up, flat or down)
- If there will be any market drop and how much
- if a significant pull-back would occur (20%), I would sell everything now even considering some losses to have cash.
- Simulate the status of our portfolio in 12 months (up, flat or down)
- Would spend a lot time evaluating all these details to try to maximize the return without considering dividend growth only capital gain.
Knowing this critical information, we all could win millions of dollar in capital gain. What a dream, no?
I am sure that all of you at one point in time, e.g. when you sell or buy stock wish to have known the near future, let say one week.
So tell me what would you do?
