Warren Buffett Told Me Something I’ll Never Forget
When I was a younger investor, I spent a lot of time looking for what traders call the “holy grail” of financial indicators.
I cycled through a whole batch of them. Technical analysis. Fundamental analysis, Fibonacci numbers, you name it.
Most work … until they don’t.
Eventually you realize there are no holy grails. Nothing works 100% of the time. Nothing is guaranteed.
But after a lot of research, I eventually found what I consider the next best thing.
In my days as a financial journalist, I noted that the top investors I interviewed — people such as Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett — would often mention a certain financial term over and over again. Then I’d go and follow the stocks they mentioned alongside that financial term.
When the market fell, their stocks fell less. When the market rose, their stocks recovered more quickly, then went on to even bigger gains.
That got me thinking more deeply about this aspect of a company’s operations and why it’s so important. In fact, I eventually came up with a name for it.
I call it the “Law of Unstoppable Profits.”
Some Stocks Have Star Power
One research firm did a study to examine the performance of thousands of stocks over nearly three decades of market history.
The stocks that delivered the highest average annualized returns were those that ranked highest by my Law of Unstoppable Profits.
Here’s what I think about this insight…
You know how some Hollywood actors have “star power”?
As the saying goes, some have “it” — they can read the proverbial phone book (that is, if we still had phone books) and still be watchable.
Other actors are destined to never have top billing, no matter how many movies their agent books for them into. They don’t have “it.”
It works the same way with stocks, except that “it” is clearly defined.
See, the Law of Unstoppable Profits is based on a mathematical formula. So there’s no guesswork.
If you’re looking for the companies with “star power” — the ones with the biggest potential to soar — this formula guides you right to them.
A Proven Recipe for Higher Share Prices
I’ve used the Law of Unstoppable Profits to generate triple-digit gains among stocks in my own Total Wealth Insider portfolio.
Barron’s calls it “the key to bigger payouts.”
Other Wall Street insiders call it a company’s “ultimate metric for success” and a “proven recipe for higher share prices.”
It’s also the same formula used by legendary investors such as Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch and Bill Miller.
These top-rated fund managers made millions for their account holders across entirely different eras of stock market history.
All of them used the Law of Unstoppable Profits to buy out-of-favor growth and value stocks just before they soared higher, again and again throughout their investing careers.
Everything Will Be Revealed Soon
At a time like now, with so much appearing to ride on the defeat of COVID-19, it’s easy enough to just throw up your hands.
It’s all guesswork, you might think. Might as well pull out the dartboard and tape a list of stocks to it, you wonder.
The Law of Unstoppable Profits offers us a way out of indecision in the bear andbull market quandary.
Instead, it offers us a way to pick stocks based on a sound, proven strategy.
I’m not going to go into too many details here, though. I’ll leave those for a special webinar that I’m hosting on Monday, April 20.
We’ll have more info on the presentation in Monday’s edition of Smart Profits Daily.

I like to think of myself as a former financial journalist who not only interviewed many of the world’s top stock market experts, entrepreneurs and financiers, but also took their advice to heart in becoming a successful investor himself.
