The stock market is undeniably expensive and stocks are pricing in a rosy picture for 2021. The average estimate is for about 9% return on the S&P 500 for a close of 4040 on the index. That’s might mean everything has to go right all year…which probably won’t happen. Are you ready to invest in 2021?

I’m ordering these scenarios from least to most likely to happen so make sure you watch through to see the four scenarios that will definitely happen and how they’ll affect stocks. We’ll talk about the warning signs to watch and which stocks to buy for each 2021 scenario.

    Great stuff. I watch several youtube videos on how to trade in the stock market but haven't made any headstart because they are either talking some gibberish or sharing their story of how they made it and I do not want to make mistakes by taking risks in my own hands.

    I have a question about the webull app please. With the limited order can you set the buy stock by 90% less than the actual current price of the stock? I tried to do that on the public app for a fluctuate stock but won't allow setting the buy price less the 50%. If that is the case for all apps then it's okay but if not I will switch the webull.

    I’ve made 80,000 on ticker symbol OZSC… it’s a green energy company. Looking to become the amazon of green components for the world market
    Q: Why are the company’s financials in their SEC filings so poor if the company is this big?
    A: Keep in mind that the most recent financials filed by the company were on November 23, 2020, and only cover the quarter from July 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020. Further, keep in mind that the acquisition of PCTI was only completed in June 2020, and that the company was near bankruptcy when Brian Conway took over in February 2020. Any financials prior to Q3 2020 do not even cover the company before it acquired PCTI and pivoted into the energy sector. You are looking at a completely different company with a completely different set of management!
    Would you judge the City of New Orleans in the present day based on how it looked after Hurricane Katrina?
    In just four months, since the last quarterly financial period covered in the company’s SEC filings, the following events have occurred:
    1) The company has changed names and sectors from surgical to energy;
    2) The company has created a new subsidiary, Ozop Energy Systems;
    3) The company has hired two new heads of business development, one for PCTI and one for their new subsidiary, Ozop Energy Systems;
    4) The company has hired a consultant, Talva Energy;
    5) The company has entered into a deal with PPP India, projected to be worth 124m over 5 years;
    6) The company has entered into a deal with SPBES. The projected revenue for this deal ranges from 2.7m – 7.8m per year minimum;
    7) The company entered into a Master Supply Agreement with WESCO to sell their entire catalogue of renewable energy products;
    8) The company entered into a co-development partnership with Zeem Solutions to enter the EV charging market for fleet vehicles

    Excellent analysis as always Joe. I’ve held amongst other the SPY ETF for a number of years. Are you saying you’d expect an XLF and XLV (equivalent sector ETFs) to outperform it in 2021?

    So with the theme of the US Dollar dropping (my pick for most likely) at 9:34 does anyone know of an ETF for US companies earning a majority of earnings from foreign currencies?

    My scenario #10 is the "Biden Bounce". The media has been negative during the previous administration. Everything scary & bad. Now we have a new leader, news is more optimistic… at least for some honeymoon period. News cycles will be optimistic & positive on covid, vaccines, economy, etc. etc. for the next 2-3 months? So buy run up for a few months here in early 2021 before the media remembers that fear sells & changes headlines again…. after the "Biden Bounce", things likely come back to earth on more fear news.

    I will be watching the virus campaign. We have already discovered that Trump's approach was hardly half developed. They got the dump lots of money into R&D labs at major pharmas, but getting from the lab to injected into people was not worked out. That lack of leadership from the Trump administration has been a problem over and over again. Biden seems to be staffing the right people and talking about plans that are nationwide and going from the lab to the injected. If what he says works out, that will give me more confidence, but when you see 1 in 3 L.A. area residents have been hit with COVID and new mutations have already begun to surface, it raises some real red flags. In the end, health is needed to create wealth. If our nation does not have health, our wealth will go down. I realize so far Wall Street has kept going up, but there are growing issues that could bring it all down.

    Most informative video, kudos Joseph. You are by far the most introspective and knowledgeable YouTuber. I'm thinking your brain is always ON, and you don't get much sleep. Thanks for sharing all your insights.

    I’m watching what tax plans Biden and the Democrat’s pass and how much money they blow on socialist government programs. They move plenty fast on taking our money, wasting it, and devaluing our dollar.
