The Dow Jones Industrial Average is working on its 3rd straight week of gains.
In case you missed it, you have to see the look on Maria Bartiromo’s face after I told her Friday that we’re 4 months into a new bull market.
I think she was into it though. Check out the full clip on Fox Business here: Mornings with Maria
This weekend I published a note about how underrated I find the Dow Jones Industrial Average to be among traders and investors.
The Dow is not something I want to fight. In fact, I was specifically taught not to.
Make sure to check out some of my favorite Dow stocks to own right now.
But today I want to focus on sentiment. More specifically, the extremes in bearish sentiment and overall pessimism.
There is no one single poll or indicator that accurately measures sentiment. Trust me, I’ve searched far and wide for it over many years.
The best way I’ve learned to use sentiment is to aggregate it all together into a composite.
This chart below includes the AAII poll, measuring individual investors’ attitudes, Investors Intelligence for Advisories, NAAIM for active managers, Volatility and Put/Call ratios.
When you combine them all together, we’re currently at levels that we’ve rarely seen throughout history.
And as it turns out, each of those times was an amazing buying opportunity:
Are you betting that this time is different?
Do you NOT see more opportunity right now than risk?
We’re buying stocks.
We could very likely already be 4 months into a new bull market.
Do you agree? Disagree?
Let me know. I love hearing from you.
