Time to buy out-of-favor ETFs for 2014?

The best time to buy cheap is when you are afraid to bring up your ideas around the water cooler at work for fear of the peer laughter.  Our work centers on looking for oversold conditions and crowd behavioral anomalies that can give us better low-risk entries with good upside potential. A combination of fundamentals and technicals, combined with Elliott Wave Theory patterns can lead to nice profits with low risk.

For just a few quick ideas that would make sense in this area, we point out three ETFs that you could look at entering now as they are way out of favor and very oversold.

Gold Stocks: GDXJ

The Junior Miners index is high-risk, high-reward. However, if you time the entry right at the opportune moment the upside is very high with low downside risk.  With GOLD out of favor, we have been pounding the table the last 10 days or so that there are only 4-5 weeks left to buy quality miner names. Instead of picking through them one at a time, you can pick up the high beta play GDJX ETF.

How about Brazil?

Everyone hates Brazil stocks now, but they have some of the most valuable natural resources in the world, and Brazil almost always bounces back strong off bear cycle lows. Here is a way to play the commodity rebound we see in 2014: EWZ ETF

It’s not too late to eat some Turkey:

The country TURKEY also often is a very volatile play to invest, but going in during very oversold conditions often plays out to the upside for gains later on. ETF TUR is beat up, it’s time to buy.
