Overview

The world is rapidly changing from the forces of globalization, resource depletion, population growth, and geopolitical uncertainty. Finite supplies of resources are running headlong into a growing global middle class—creating potential shortages in oil, water, and other commodities—while, at the same time, concerns over planetary constraints have sparked a resurgent environmental movement. This fast-changing world is turning investment truisms upside down. But, says Matthew McCall, investors who understand and anticipate these trends stand to profit handsomely in the years ahead.

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

In The Next Great Bull Market, McCall shows how world-changing trends are creating pockets of investment opportunity within a largely bearish investment environment—and he introduces a number of major investment themes that will take advantage of the new global economy. With traditional diversification across asset classes now producing anemic returns, he points out, the days of buying the stock of the biggest names on Wall Street and riding the ups and downs is over. McCall offers a new, hands-on approach that adapts to the changing market environment with a combination of concentration and diversification that he calls "conversification." By concentrating on the sectors of the market that are outperforming, but at the same time diversifying across those same sectors, his approach will produce results that are much greater than that of a portfolio that is diversified and offers less risk than a portfolio that is concentrated.

Covering the full spectrum of change, McCall offers specific advice for profiting from trends such as the green movement, global infrastructure 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 Market is a blueprint for profiting in today's swiftly changing world.
