6 Great Ways To Hedge Your Portfolio From The Pending Market Crash

Introduction – Hedging Your Portfolio

Hedging your portfolio from the pending market crash. The overall stock market is currently significantly overvalued.  However, not all stocks are overvalued.  Therefore, there are good companies at attractive valuations to be found.  But most importantly, all bull markets eventually end with a bear market, and the market’s current long-running bull market is no exception.  Of course, the opposite is always true, all bear markets end with a bull market.  But the good news is that bear markets tend to be short in duration, while bull markets last for considerably longer periods of time.  But the one we are in is one of the longest on record, but like all bull markets will inevitably come to an end.

Since investors know this either by knowledge or intuition, there is a strong desire for people to want to hedge their portfolio against the market collapse.  From my long experience, the problem with hedges are that they rarely work as expected.  Short-term price volatility is simply too unpredictable.  Nevertheless, there are ways that prudent and intelligent investors can protect themselves from market crashes.  In this video I will cover 6 that I consider to be the best and most important.

6 Ways to Hedge Your Portfolio:

  • Number 1: always exercise the discipline to only invest in a stock when it offers a margin of safety.
  • Number 2: invest in the business and not the stock.
  • Number 3: invest for the long-term and avoid knee-jerk reactions to short-term price volatility. 
  • Number 4: if retired or risk-averse, invest in dividend paying stocks.
  • Number 5: engage in constant due diligence and monitoring of the fundamentals.
  • Number 6: diversify properly but not too much or too little.
