How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Quantum AI Tech Stocks Current State of Drawdowns and Buying Levels

Companies / Investing 2022 Mar 09, 2022 - 09:20 PM GMT

50% DRAWDOWNS ARE THE NORM!

The indices tend to smooth out what is actually taking place in the stock market, as we have had a taste of these past few weeks where some stocks have stuck near their highs, even risen in price, the likes of LMT and GPN, whilst others have crashed and burned all whilst the Dow is currently down barely 5.5% off it's all time high! Try telling that to holders of MOST stocks that are typically down by 50% or more off their highs! And now being joined by FAANGBOOK,

Investors HAVE to expect the potential for 50% draw downs, THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS TO MOST STOCKS MOST YEARS!

That is the cost of investing in the stock market, does not matter that the stock is Google, Apple, Amazon, FACEBOOK!, 50% DRAWDOWNS, IF YOU CANNOT DEAL WITH THIS FACT THEN DO NOT INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET because it is normal! And why I often say just invest and forget and you'll save yourselves a lot of grief staring at the draw downs that WILL HAPPEN REGARDLESS OF STOCK!


Yes one can diminish the potential for draw downs by distributing into over valued FOMO highs as I and many Patrons were doing during Q3 and Q4 last year, coupled with then BUYING the DEVIATIONS from the highs and thus one can manage to smooth things out somewhat. For instance by selling most of my Facebook and buying it back at first around $301 and then sub $240, brings my average NEW exposure price down to $273, which is a a 30% deviation from the high, so my potential draw down risk to say $200 (about half Facebook high) is for about a 25% draw down. Which is about the best investors can hope to achieve without having the benefit of HINDSIGHT!

Current State of Draw downs

My analysis of 12th Jan laid out how low I expected stocks to trade down to for potential buying opportunities (HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY INVEST IN STOCKS During 2022 and Beyond)

To date those once distant draw downs have been achieved for Nvidia, AMD. Facebook, Amazon, ASML, Microsoft and Intel. Which was further refined into buying levels in my brief buying levels message of 24th Jan expanded in my last analysis of 31st Jan as an indication of how low stocks could go by referring to my 3rd buying levels. One has to realise that for one to buy for instance Facebook at Buying Level 3 of $232 then Facebook has to actually FALL to $232 to enable one to do so! And for that to take place then there has to be a reason to generate the selling to attain the buying level, a reason that one will only become apparent in hindsight!

In respect of which so far only Facebook has won the award for achieving MAX DRAWDOWN of $233, and with it executing my final Buy limit order at $232 so that my portfolio is now stuffed to the eyeballs with Facebook stock, no more!

So I am basically mostly investing on autopilot as I have my buying levels around which I have tweaked limit orders as I continue to build up my exposure to Quantum AI tech stocks after having sold 80% of my holdings during the second half of last year. bringing my exposure down to barely 20% of portfolio (AI stocks+ high risk stocks + Portfolio cash = 100%). that I am now in the process of building to a target at least 55% invested so that coupled with high risk stocks at 24% I will be back to being about 75% invested,

This article is an excerpt from my recent in-depth analysis that mapped out how low AI tech stocks could trade during the stock market panic of 2022.
