MarketMasterAI’s Top 500 Stocks: April 2024

Stocks to sell

In January, I published MarketMasterAI’s top 500 stocks to buy for the first half of 2024. The AI-powered system ranked the largest American firms by market capitalization and chose what it believed to be the best investments for the next six months.

The first three months have been admittedly mixed. A-grade companies have performed splendidly, returning 12% since the year began. That’s well ahead of the 7.4% average, and roughly where we would expect to be at this point.

However, a significant pullback in high-quality stocks means that the top A+ stocks have only returned 5.6% over the same period. Wins by firms like Eli Lilly (NYSE:LLY) (up 33%) and Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) (up 22%) were not enough to offset the overall pivot away from high-quality non-tech firms. The cohort is only up half of what we would expect. Meanwhile, a resurgence of junk firms like Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) was enough to power F-grade companies to an 11% gain.

The results are far better once you consider companies beyond the top 500 picks. Once we include American companies of all market capitalizations, we begin to see the typical slope of high-grade firms doing better than low-grade ones. (In other words, this quarter’s junk rally has been concentrated only in large-cap stocks).

But we should still recognize the difficulty that even AI has in anticipating these changes. Investors are still emotional beings, and even the best algorithms can underestimate how much the fear of missing out can drive low-quality firms to stunning heights.

The Top 500 Stocks to Buy This Month

Nevertheless, MarketMasterAI’s long-term performance remains intact. The strong performance of the “All Companies” cohort means that the system’s historical performance has gotten even better than where we started at the beginning of the year.

That’s why I’m excited to give you the updated MarketMasterAI picks for the next six months.

Our list this month looks similar to January’s, with high-quality growers like Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) taking top A+ grades. The system believes these tech laggards will outperform as the business cycle improves. Many high-returning industrial firms also make the list for the same reason.

Meanwhile, high-momentum firms like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) score far lower because of their now-inflated valuations. History tells us that companies like these tend to slightly underperform over the medium term. Exxon Mobil and Eli Lilly notably drops from A+ grades to C’s after their incredible 3-month rallies.

Finally, the D- and F-grade stocks continue to be those with either weaker profits or share prices that defy logic. The system continues to be skeptical of Coinbase and other junk rally firms.

On the date of publication, Thomas Yeung held a LONG position in GOOG, GOOGL, PYPL and GM. The opinions expressed in this article are those of the writer, subject to the InvestorPlace.com Publishing Guidelines.
