Overview

The world is rapidly changing from the forces of globalization,resource depletion, population growth, and geopoliticaluncertainty. Finite supplies of resources are running headlong intoa growing global middle class—creating potential shortages inoil, water, and other commodities—while, at the same time,concerns over planetary constraints have sparked a resurgentenvironmental movement. This fast-changing world is turninginvestment truisms upside down. But, says Matthew McCall, investorswho understand and anticipate these trends stand to profithandsomely in the years ahead.

Savvy investors made a great deal of money anticipating majortrends of the past twenty years—such as the Internet boom ofthe 1990s, the rise of China and Brazil, and the jump in oilprices—and the rapid change on many different levels intoday's world holds even greater promise in the years ahead.

In The Next Great Bull Market, McCall shows howworld-changing trends are creating pockets of investmentopportunity within a largely bearish investmentenvironment—and he introduces a number of major investmentthemes that will take advantage of the new global economy. Withtraditional diversification across asset classes now producinganemic returns, he points out, the days of buying the stock of thebiggest names on Wall Street and riding the ups and downs is over.McCall offers a new, hands-on approach that adapts to the changingmarket environment with a combination of concentration anddiversification that he calls "conversification." By concentratingon the sectors of the market that are outperforming, but at thesame time diversifying across those same sectors, his approach willproduce results that are much greater than that of a portfolio thatis diversified and offers less risk than a portfolio that isconcentrated.

Covering the full spectrum of change, McCall offers specificadvice for profiting from trends such as the green movement, globalinfrastructure expansion, the new bull market for commodities,health care and aging baby boomers, a growing global middle class,geopolitical upheavals, and more. The Next Great Bull Marketis a blueprint for profiting in today's swiftly changing world.
