This isn’t just any old stock market rally. It’s the first leg of a global generational bull market.
Stocks around the world can and eventually will double and triple from here.
Investors want to know if it’s too late to get into the record-breaking bull market.
They want to know if they should take profits… or keep their chips on the table.
They want to know how to navigate any correction, if one comes.
The answers to those questions are easy. You just have to understand where we are.
My record picking major market tops and bottoms is exceptional.
That’s important, because the global generational bull market isn’t going to be a straight run.
There will be ups and downs.
And to get the most of both, you need to know this market and have a plan…
Why This Market Is Unique
First, you have to understand that the first leg up was made possible by the Great Recession.
Stocks and almost every major asset class were sold off in a flight to quality and cash as the U.S.-led financial crisis spread far and wide. The deleveraging and discounting of equities and commodities created a safe entry point, especially for stocks.

I hate to be the one to day I told you so, but, I told you so. Back on January 3rd I suggested DragonWave, Inc. (NASDAQ:DRWI) was on the verge of a rally, and only needed to clear one more hurdle to get the ball rolling to the point where it wouldn’t stop. Well, DRWI did the deed two trading days later, and sure enough the stock’s advanced 6% since then (and was up as much as 16% at one point earlier today). Better still, it looks like the bulls have only begun to do their thing.

The bad new is, if you didn’t catch my first bullish call on DragonWave, Inc. (NASDAQ:DRWI) from November 21st, you missed out on what would have been about a 20% gain. The good news is, it’s still not too late to get into DRWI and rack up a very nice profit. In fact, the best days for DragonWave may be in front of it.

- [By Lee Jackson]
Occidental Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: OXY) had a huge day when the company announced that it was spinning off its California assets into a separate company. Occidental has faced calls from Wall Street and activist investors to split its U.S. business from its international operations, with analysts valuing the assets between $19 billion and $22 billion. The fact that the company is not an integrated is seen as a huge positive. Without refining or midstream operations, independent exploration and production majors like Occidental will see the full benefit of rising oil prices in their future results. In an unlikely but not out of the question scenario, the company could also be a takeover target, but it would come with a very steep price tag. Investors receive a very solid 3.0% dividend. The consensus price objective is $107.20. Shares closed Thursday at $92.93.
