The Path to Profitability Starts Here

Apr 05, 2020

We all dream of amazing profits from the next Google (GOOGL) or Amazon (AMZN). Well, this is the time to find them – among great small caps that have been unfairly hit in this coronavirus crisis. Not just any small caps, of course. The innovators. The job creators. The ones who show the early signs of going on to do great things. I’m talking about boldly buying something like Netflix (NFLX) in 2008. Back then, Netflix was mostly a mail-order DVD rental company. It was a small cap worth $1.3 billion. And we were in the thick of the financial crisis. Ten years later, you’d have been up 11,000%... even 12,000%. Sadly, many, many people missed out on that buying opportunity in 2008.

You Must Do This If You Want to be Wealthy

Apr 04, 2020

Heading into this year, I was passionate about getting a very important message in front of investors. It was my thesis that the next decade would not only be the most innovative in history, but that the stock market would experience its largest gains ever. The start of 2020 – as brutal as it has been – reminds me of 1990. Stocks had already been in a bull market for eight years when the ball dropped on 1989 and ushered in the new decade. Most experts believed the bull market was over and that the 1990s would be a lost decade. Boy, were they wrong. The 1990s went on to become one of the greatest decades for stocks. Little technology companies you’d never heard of became household names. Continue Reading…

Cryptos, Beers, and Buy Lists

Apr 03, 2020

We began a new quarter, but market volatility remained this week as the number of coronavirus cases in the United States kept climbing and the monthly jobs report showed a steep increase in the unemployment rate. The S&P 500 closed down 2.9% for the week, but I like that it remains well off the March low. On this week’s episode of MoneyLine, I dive into the market action and discuss the best plan to start buying stocks. That’s right – it’s time to start buying again. But I recommend you be smart about how you do that. There is a specific road map you must follow if you want to make the most of this crisis market. The big number of the week was the March jobs report, which was as ugly as expected. But that’s not actually the main reason behind today’s sell-off. Continue Reading…

The Answer to Your Biggest Investing Question

Apr 02, 2020

Has the market found a bottom? Is it time to buy stocks again? These are two of the biggest questions I’ve been getting from readers, family, and friends the past few days. Volatility has been near record-high levels. The coronavirus panic has caused gut-wrenching moves. Some of America’s largest companies lost nearly 30% in value in no time at all… before rallying and then pulling back again. Fear and confusion are through the roof. So let me answer these questions… right here, right now. Yes. It is time to buy stocks. That’s why I released Part 2 of my Crisis & Opportunity Investment Summit last night. For those of you who attended Part 1 a few weeks ago but didn’t make it last night, don’t worry. Continue Reading…

Progress Is Not Slowing – Don’t Be Left Behind

Apr 01, 2020

Everywhere I go, family and friends, coworkers, and even people I run into at the grocery store ask me what they should do with their portfolio. Recently it has been via email and phone calls as most of us are self-isolating at home. Stocks are down, volatility is through the roof, gas prices have cratered, crazy things are happening in the bond markets… and the coronavirus is causing disruption and suffering that we need to address and overcome. We will. I get that it’s a frustrating and even scary time, but I also know the stock market has taken gut punches in the past. It always – always – finds a way to rebound. You need to have already laid the groundwork when it does. Continue Reading…

A Simple Road Map to Maximize Gains

Mar 31, 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the market has taken a beating in March, and we are closing in on the worst month since 2008. But both the economy and stocks will recover from the coronavirus – and I want to explain why. There are several positive signs for consumers, such as lower oil prices. Add in historically low interest rates and you have the strong likelihood that businesses and consumers will spend. Underlining these positives is a massive stimulus package on the way that will help kickstart the economy when the time is right and the coronavirus is brought under control. To that end, help looks to be on the way from healthcare and biotechnology companies. I’ve mentioned Fulgent Genetics (FLGT) here in MoneyWire before. Continue Reading…

I Called the Bottom in 2009, And Today…

Mar 30, 2020

In March 2009, I was working in Manhattan at my investment advisory firm and writing newsletters. At the time, I was also a regular guest on Fox Business prior to signing a contract with the network. You would think all things in my work life were good. I was busy doing what I love and had multiple streams of income. However, everything that I did – including in my free time – revolved around the stock market. Heading into that month, the S&P 500 had lost over half its value, and there appeared to be no end in sight. Nearly everyone had given up on stocks… and investing in general. The bears and doomsdayers were everywhere. You could not turn on the TV, open the internet, or read a newspaper without hearing about “the end of Wall Street.” Continue Reading…

There’s Always Two Sides to a Price: An Important Way to View Market Panics

Mar 29, 2020

Prices. You can’t make a move in today’s world without seeing the price for something. You’ve got prices for cars, homes, gas, food, insurance, medical care, appliances, and services. You’ve got prices for financial assets like stocks and bonds. Most people view a price as having just one side. A stock’s price is $42, a home’s price is $350,000, and a car’s price is $27,000. For most people, the thinking stops there. Yet, there’s a different, very powerful way to view prices beyond them having just one side. Not many people use this way of seeing things, but it’s one of the great secrets of the financial markets… something that lets you see what others do not.  Continue Reading…

Why I’m Buying Small Caps on Sale

Mar 28, 2020

There is nothing I hate more than people who use scare tactics for personal gain. Especially right now. Come to find out, Bill Ackman, the hedge fund CEO of Pershing Capital who loves sparring with other billionaires in the media, was buying up some of the very stocks he was warning us about last week. That’s because it never pays to bet against America. The truth is, we’ve all seen this cycle play out before. The previous financial crisis of 2008-2009 spooked investors so much that shares of some of the largest and most well-respected companies got crushed. Does the market go straight up after something like that? No. But people who heard the knock of opportunity set themselves up for serious upside. Continue Reading…

A New Bull Market or a Bear Market Rally?

Mar 27, 2020

Yes, it was another crazy week for stocks. This week, though, there was more of the good kind of crazy. After the best three-day rally since the 1930s – which is still hard to believe – the market sold off today into the close. Even after the late-day selling, the S&P 500 still managed to post an impressive 11.5% gain for the week. In this week’s episode of MoneyLine, I’ll help you make sense of the wild week and give you an update on all things coronavirus and… finally!... a stimulus package. We’ll also discuss the big question: Was this week’s positive action the start of a new bull market or simply a bear market rally? We’ll look back at past bear markets for some clues and I’ll share my own analysis as I give you my answer. Continue Reading…
