    Wall Street’s winners fire ‘rifle shots,’ while most investors miss the mark

    To be sure, carpet bombing works well at certain stages of the stock market’s cycle, particularly when prices are rising strongly and individual stocks’ correlations with the overall market are high. The newsletter at the top of my performance scoreboard for year-to-date performance — The Turnaround Letter, edited by George Putnam — expects the second half of this year to be more of the same. In the latest issue of his newsletter, Putnam forecasted that “2018 will produce about a 6% full-year return while exhibiting higher volatility than in recent years.” That translates into a 1.9% increase in the S&P 500 from current levels.

    Last year Equifax Inc. discovered that it had suffered a massive data breach, and then waited a month before publicly disclosing that breach.

    Profiting from Disruption Trades

    From time to time Amazon.com Inc. will announce that it is going to start doing a thing, and the stocks of other companies that do the thing will drop on the assumption that Amazon will eat their lunch. Amazon, the reasoning goes, is big and smart and good and efficient at doing things, so it will probably be able to out-compete the incumbents. Also Amazon is strikingly good at training investors to allow it to do things without making money on them, so it can undercut the incumbents’ margins by just doing the thing for free.
