If you were to collect the brightest minds in the investing world together in one room and ask them to list the most important aspects to having success in the market – we’d get a plethora of answers…
Underwriting, revenues, assets, industry, supply & demand would probably be high on every list.
If you were to look at the top answer on every sheet of paper – I’d bet dollars to donuts that they would have the same word in the “#1” slot: timing.
Now, the other things are all important – don’t get me wrong – but the simple fact is, you can have all of the other important factors checked off – but if you don’t have the right timing, you might as well be throwing your money down a manhole somewhere.
Timing could mean the difference between making a killing and being killed.
Don’t believe it?
Let’s take a look at one of Wall Street’s biggest darlings: Apple.
In 2014, before Apple decided to do a 7-to-1 split of their stock – shares were priced right around $700.
But it took a long time to get there…
In 2001 – you could have gotten in for peanuts – especially if you pulled the trigger before they released the iPod. However, even if you didn’t realize Apple was on to something big, technology-wise, you still had another 6 years to get on the train, because in 2007, Apple changed everything.
In June of 2007, Apple released its first smartphone. Not THE first smartphone – but the first smartphone that was both user friendly and universally appealing to the public.
It was at this point that shares really started to soar.
People started buying up this stock faster than you could say, “Steve Jobs is a genius.”
But here’s the problem…
While plenty of these investors had a chance to make money – the simple fact that they waited till the train had already left the station meant that they had missed out on the kind of profits that can change a person’s financial future.
Their timing was off…
That’s why it’s so important to be there before the rest of the herd.
Which is why I believe that the GorillaTrades system works as well as it does. The GorillaTrades system aims to take advantage of perfect timing more than anything…
Because it works! It’s how I was able to turn $250K into over $5.5 MILLION in the 18 months prior to founding GorillaTrades* – and it’s the same formula that can make you money in the future. I’d love to have you join GorillaTrades as we do our very best to get you the kind of profits you’ve always wanted out of Wall Street.
But even if you choose to go in alone, there’s one thing you should take away from this…
And that’s the fact that WHEN you act is just as important as acting itself. Often times MORE so! Keep your finger on the pulse and you’ll be just fine.
“All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this.” Miyamoto Musashi
