Making Sense of Stocks in the Time of COVID-19


The ongoing pandemic is distressing markets and investors worldwide. Uncertainty in the face of wicked market volatility and global economic recession are foremost in the minds of many individual investors. What can you do now when making your portfolio decisions?

Always dynamic and widely respected, Doug Gerlach will highlight how you can still outperform the market with a buy and hold strategy using stock-picking methods honed over 60 years and incorporating the wisdom of the market's greatest minds. He’ll discuss possible moves to make in today’s market by leveraging his techniques of stock selection and principles of portfolio construction. He oversees a suite of online and desktop fundamental stock analysis tools for stock selection, screening, and portfolio management for investors and investment clubs.


1. How to approach stock investing during down markets and recessions. In volatile markets and uncertain economic times, individual stock selection becomes even more important to long-term investment success.

2. A common-sense framework for selecting stocks and building a core equity portfolio. The principles of stock analysis developed by Peter Lynch, Benjamin Graham, and Warren Buffett have much to teach today’s investors.

3. Doug’s best ideas for top stocks to consider right now. His Investor Advisory Service newsletter has a top ranking for consistent long-term performance among all US stock newsletters (source: HulbertRatings.com).
