Crash 2018: How to Prepare if It Happens

By: Adam Surplice

The market tumbling can leave a lot of people nervous and anxious.

But for skilled investors, it can be like Christmas morning.

So often you hear things like, “I wish I bought Amazon when it was ‘X’ dollars!”

Or, “I missed out on Netflix when it was ‘Y’ dollars.”

Well, while it’s impossible to physically go back in time and make those investments, it’s time to start looking at market crashes and selloffs as a sort of time machine.

Now, people CAN buy incredible stocks at prices they were before they shot up.

That’s where savvy investors can make their most money: when they weather the storm and add on to positions at opportune times.

While short-sellers panic and incite fear in the media about another recession, smart investors look for strong companies that are now available at a discount.

The greatest investor of all time, Warren Buffett, has echoed this sentiment, famously quipping that the best investors “should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful.”

At The Motley Fool, we agree completely that the best investors separate themselves from the pack with a strong buy-and-hold mentality, and a healthy greed when the market turns its back on you.

That’s why we’ve developed a stunning new report detailing one of the biggest opportunities we see in the ASX today.

Australian investors looking for bargain-basement shares need look no further!

In fact, our expert analyst team is calling this promising company their #1 share recommendation for all of 2018.
