Oil boom resurgence thesis for 2020.

May there be no casualties.

Easy money in Last 10 Years on Pause.

A CNBC report that rockets were fired at an Iraq airbase housing U.S. troops sent the Dow Jones futures down by over 300-400 points. The market's arrogance in ignoring recent heightened tensions may prove costly.

Value investing may come back in style for long-time investors that survived 2008/09 or the Y2K bubble before that (in 2000). Search far and wide for value. 


The market never reached the next point of the business cycle. So, investors of 10 years will not have experienced any bearish market in that time. New investors who started last year will learn the difference between luck and skill this year.

Have a good risk mitigation strategy and play defence this year. Stay invested.

Out Fox Model

The primary benefit of a second contributor to the DIY Value Investing service is a second model to provide subscribers with more investing ideas. Chris Lau will continue running the DIY model and Stone Fox Capital will now run the Out Fox model that will be introduced over the next couple of weeks.

This author is best known for his AMD (AMD) buy idea that rose 300% in his 2018 article. Although my call to buy AMD by more (I will taunt him about that), that return took a LOT longer at 1500 days (7 years).

Stone Fox is also known for his bearish call against cannabis but he was bullish before the sector peaked:

Update on AMD

Though I am long-term bullish on AMD's prospects, the stock may reach my downside target tomorrow.

Bottom line on DIY Value Investing Marketplace

Rite Aid's (NYSE:RAD) four-bagger and Baush Health's (BHC) returns over the years gave the highest rankings but as markets shift, investors need to re-allocate accordingly.  

While we are both ranked in the Top 50 by TipRanks, this changes based on our accuracy of calls. So, shifting in income stocks when stocks fell in late 2018 returned us 20-30%. These were the DIY picks:

For 2020, The Top DIY Value Ideas will be overweight in energy. The latest conflict just happen to be a catalyst re-igniting the oil resurgence that paused over five years ago.
