In the spirit of the solid and useful stocks to own forever series popping up, I've considered a series on capitalizing on shorter-term trends as a way to dollar cost average in for the long-term.
Enter, the 4040 series.
Named after 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a single season of baseball, it is fitting for short-term buying opportunities that are unique, and rare. The perfect blend of power and speed. These trends/selloffs happen fast, sometimes so fast that the market completely missteps. Macro gets a bad rap, but broad trends and selloffs can lead to great opportunities for buying up for the long-term.
For now, this will include various oil plays (think: banks with oil exposure) and underrated holiday retail stocks. Beyond that, we'll monitor broad swings in industries and trends for market overreactions.
