Four Stocks To Consider Buying Before The US Elections

·6 min read

Our research team put together this list of stocks to help you understand how to attempt to target strategic gains between now and 30 to 60 days after the elections. If you have not been paying attention to what is happening in the markets right now, be sure to read to the end of this report.

If you have not already prepared for the election event, and the pending chaos that is likely to happen after the elections, you better start doing something to protect your portfolio right now. Leaving your portfolio exposed in the moderate to high risk sectors in your IRA or 401k could result in some wicked risks to your total capital if you are not cautious.

ARE YOU READY FOR A VOLATILTY SPIKE AND THE RISKS TO YOUR PORTFOLIO?

Personally, I’ve been getting calls from my family and friends over the past few weeks urgently asking me “what should I do with my retirement money?” and “how should I protect my assets before the elections?”. My family knows if they do nothing to protect their capital, the could be exposed to a -20% or -30% draw down if the market moves lower after the election. We don’t know of anyone that wants to ride out another -20% to -30% correction in the markets – right?

Well, if you are interested in taking a small portion of your capital and attempting to profit from these four simple stock picks we’ve identified, you may feel quite a bit better about how you managed your capital throughout the election event and over the next 30 to 60+ days.

First off, each of these symbols targets key benefits we believe will take place (or have a moderately high likelihood of taking place) after the elections. Secondarily, each of these symbols has setup a very clear technical pattern that suggests “the bottom is in”. Lastly, we’re only including FOUR symbols that we feel are properly hedged for risk – we’ll explain everything in more detail as we go through each symbol. Each of these chart will show very clear support levels in BLUE on each chart. Use your best judgment to identify proper stop levels for each of these setups. You must allow room for the trade to mature and initiate a rally attempt in order to secure the profit potential. It should be fairly easy to see the opportunities in each of these picks. Let’s get started.

American Airlines: AAL Weekly Chart

Airlines are going to benefit from the stimulus package that will be secured shortly after the elections. One way or another, the US government must support essential transportation services through any extended economic shutdown or further COVID economic collapse. There will be some rescue package for the airline sector, we believe, within 30 days after the elections.

The basing support level, shown by the lower BLUE line on this Weekly chart, highlights the upward price trend that we believe support another attempt at a price breakout (higher). We believe the news of a stimulus package that supports an Airline rescue plan will prompt a moderately strong upside price move that could target +35% to +65% levels from the current $12.72 price levels. Ultimately, key resistance exists near the $28.50 level. Therefore, we believe this resistance level will act as a major future price ceiling going forward.

Aurora Cannabis: ACB Weekly Chart

The cannabis sector may benefit from a change at the state and local government level. The extended basing support level and Pennant/Flag formation, shown by the lower BLUE lines on this Weekly chart, highlights the upward price trend that we believe supports a price breakout attempt (higher). We believe the potential for ACB to begin a new rally will initiate shortly after the US elections and will prompt a moderately strong upside price move that could target +115% to +235% levels from the current $4.88 price levels. Ultimately, key resistance exists near the $32.76 level. Therefore, we believe this resistance level will act as a major future price ceiling going forward.

General Electric: GE Weekly Chart

General Electric Company may benefit from any new infrastructure plans related to new policy/plans on the federal/state level. The extended basing support level and Pennant/Flag formation, shown by the lower BLUE lines on this Weekly chart, highlights the upward price trend that we believe supports a price breakout attempt (higher). We believe the potential for GE to begin a new rally will initiate shortly after the US elections and will prompt a moderately strong upside price move that could target +25% to +55% levels from the current $7.39 price levels. Ultimately, key resistance exists near the $18.05 level. Therefore, we believe this resistance level will act as a major future price ceiling going forward.

Silver Miners Juniors: SILV Weekly Chart

Junior Silver Miners are the “Hedge Trade” component for this simple portfolio. We believe Silver and Silver Miners will initiate a new upside price rally very shortly after the US elections and we believe this trade is an efficient “hedge” to the risk associated with the other three symbols in this simple portfolio. The extended basing support level and Pennant/Flag formation, shown by the lower BLUE lines on this Weekly chart, highlights the upward price trend that we believe supports a price breakout attempt (higher).

Silver miners should perform well once the price of gold starts a new uptrend and starts to rally towards $2200 price level. Fibonacci extension measured moves allow you to forecast where gold should rally to next as shown in this Sept 23rd article. We believe the potential for SILJ to begin a new rally will initiate shortly after the US elections and will prompt a moderately strong upside price move that could target +35% to +65% levels from the current $14.98 price levels. Ultimately, key resistance exists near the $32.95 level. Therefore, we believe this resistance level will act as a major future price ceiling going forward.

Concluding Thoughts:

We hope you find the value in these four simple picks we have presented and understand how you can help to protect your investment portfolio by allocating a small portion of your portfolio into these opportunities. There is no guarantee that these picks will rally as we expect. There is no guarantee that the COVID-19 infections won’t skyrocket again – potentially shutting down the global economy again. You have to use your skills and abilities to manage these trades ON YOUR OWN. We are just showing you four potential trade setups that we believe have a strong likelihood of initiating an upside price move near or after the US elections. We hope you strongly consider the message we are trying to convey to you – protect your assets and prepare for extended volatility.
