Jeff Hirsch will reveal his 2022 Annual Forecast and how his January Indicator Trifecta will solidify his outlook. Find out the major obstacles the market faces from the Fed, Inflation, and the Midterm Elections. Midterm election years are notoriously the worst year of the 4-Year Cycle, and the second year of New Democratic Presidents is even worse. Valuations are high and the market looks toppy, so we are likely to experience more volatility in 2022, but midterm market weakness often sets up solid buying opportunities for the Sweet Spot of the 4-year Cycle.

The sustainable "smart everything world" is at the intersection of the two the biggest secular trends in the world. First, we are seeing technology continue to emerge in its own right, but also within every other industry. The winners in real estate, finance, heavy industry, and every other industry are now being determined largely by the smart application of technology. Second, the move towards a low-carbon energy system is happening at a faster pace than most expected a decade ago. Technology is at the forefront of this massive energy transition. The emerging sustainable energy system encompasses things from solar, wind, batteries, and EVs to carbon capture, renewable natural gas, low carbon fuels, and hydrogen. This presentation will cover trends in the sustainable "smart everything world," as well as offer several stocks likely to be big winners in the next few years.

While 2022 looks promising from a fundamental level, expert Erin Gibbs doesn't see volatility going away just yet. Investors can still jump at inflation records, Federal Reserve actions and further Covid variants. Investors can use the VIX to help understand what to expect from markets on a daily basis. In summary, if volatility spikes it tends to be very short lived, with big up days following those nasty down days.

Buying just the index (S&P 500 or TSX) would simply outperform over 95% of fund managers, mutual funds, and private broker client accounts over any five-year period. This is due, not because of a lack of expertise, but because of investment fee (MER), the overhead cost to the analyst, commission fees to the broker, and just keeping the lights in the home office. This combination can be anywhere from 2% to a whopping 5%. This can be a big chuck of the profits. However, to outperform the index, a slightly different approach is needed besides simply buying and holding the index. This is where the fun starts.
The year-over-year comparisons are becoming more difficult this earnings announcement season, so the stock market is naturally gravitating to stocks that are sustaining strong earnings momentum, characterized by expanding operating margins, and high margin, monopolistic companies that dominate their business.
