This most recent downturn is significant, but not for the reasons you might think. It's certainly not significant in severity; it's barely fallen 1% over the past few days, and it may very well have recovered to all-time highs by the time you read this tomorrow morning.

It's exciting enough to think that, if everything goes smoothly, this coming summer and fall could feel much more normal - even if we won't be all the way "through" - but the recovery is also creating a buying opportunity we haven't seen in a year or more.
To put it another way, the market's worst week in a while is shaping up to be a great time to shuffle the portfolio and buy stocks.
See, like I predicted a few months ago, capital is moving out of the so-called "pandemic plays," like Big Tech, online retail, and the like, that soared to incredible highs when the pandemic was at its absolute worst.
And money is moving in - by the billions - to stocks that are keyed into a growing economy.
We've seen metals prices climb nicely, and energy is especially well. Those are both sure signs of a recovery underway. Yields have crept up, which has freaked out investors, but that's also a good sign; it's been good for the financials, too.
Financials, energy, metals - those have been great lately...But I think the biggest, fastest profits to be had are in these three stocks I'm about to show you...
