I’m right, they’re wrong: Double down on these five stocks

OK, before anyone even thinks “You just can’t admit that you’re wrong,” allow me to retort that I admitted I was wrong five times in a row, as recently as Monday. Today, we are talking about something else entirely. These are stocks about which I am right, and everyone else is wrong. Note that my being right about these having been great buys has not resulted in a rise in price, and there is no guarantee that it ever will. I consider them bad beats.

Unfortunately, any poker player knows you lose just as much—and sometimes more—to the bad beats as you do to the good ones, so beware. Nevertheless, in all cases, the reasons for my having bought these investments in the first place are as pertinent today as they did when I first bought. Furthermore, I not only think the Street is wrong about their current values, but in most cases, I think I know why. That means I still think they will go up, and if I’m right about that, you can buy them today for less than I paid, thereby eventually getting out with a better return, so allow me to congratulate you in advance for that.

As always, remember to treat these ideas as just that, ideas, and do your own research before making any investment decision.
