Positioning your portfolio for the next bull market phase

By Ken Fisher, The Australian, 14/09/2023

Where should you shop for stocks? Since last June’s lows, the ASX and world stocks have buried terrible 2022’s global bear market. Few foresaw. Even fewer correctly envisioned the same categories crushed by the downturn leading the new bull market’s charge.
