When Dogs, Few Bulls and pattern support comes together ... it often spells "OPPORTUNITY!"

Sir John Templeton would often say ..."Buy at the point of maximum pessimism!" I started out the year highlighting to members the worst performing assets -- not over the past year -- but the last 3-years: The "Dogs of the past 3-years!"

The table below reflects the worst performing assets over that time frame.

6-weeks DOES NOT make a year! So far though, some of the Dogs of the past 3-years are doing rather well in the first 6 weeks of 2014! One of my goals is to find the hard hit assets that are out of favor and are creating bullish patterns.
