2020 Performance

My Marketplace subscriber service Global Markets Playbook has provided overall portfolio gains of around 30% since it began in April 2020.

Recent winners were seen in Corcept Pharma (CORT) (+118.7%) and Rocket Pharma (RCKT) (+90%).

Closed out positions include: 

Peloton (PTON) (+67%), Hecla Mining (HL) (+150%), Joyy Inc (YY) (+80%), JD.COM (+45%), and IIVI (IIVI) (+45%.

I also made some short-term calls on the indices and commodities that are not included. This included Bitcoin (BTC-USD) at $8-9k in the summer, which is now pressing a 300% gain at $23k.

2020 review and 2021 outlook

The GMP portfolio started in April at the height of the pandemic and the mistake I made in 2020 was expecting a shorter lifespan of the virus. This led me to doubt the stock rally and I stayed out of the tech names. 

In reality, the gains I have made were in undervalued names and I picked them because I saw a catalyst and clear valuation targets.

The tech rally is now rising on fantasy valuations and this is not a long-term strategy for the long-term. I am also able to apply my experience of commodities to my calls and that was how I created the 150% return in Hecla Mining. 

I am about to release my 2021 portfolio before the year-end and this would be an ideal time for investors to get involved if they are cautious about the current valuations.
