How I Saved 25% of My Portfolio from Getting Clobbered

Jun 17, 2020

By now, we’re all familiar with how COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the markets. Last week, the Nasdaq was hitting all-time highs just three months after falling to unprecedented lows… and then on Thursday the market fell more than 1,850 points in a single session. Just yesterday, good data on retail sales propelled the market up again more than 500 points. Regular MoneyWire readers know that I view crisis times like these as ones of tremendous opportunity. That’s why I want to introduce you to my friend and colleague, Keith Kaplan.  Keith has an amazing story to tell. He uses a revolutionary tool to get in front of major market moves – and the tool has been dead-on accurate about this recent market.

Today’s News from Volkswagen is Just the Beginning

Jun 16, 2020

Part of my job is staying on top of the headlines. That can be hazardous to my health sometimes… or at least my blood pressure. But it’s crucial to keep up with what’s going on, especially in the hypergrowth trends where you tend to find the biggest upside potential. Today was a good day, as it included the news that Volkswagen Group (VWAGY) just invested another $200 million in a battery startup called QuantumScape. But the really good news is that it’s just the tip of the iceberg. As I’ve been saying for a while, the future of cars is electric. European carmakers are mandated to cut carbon dioxide emissions by one third in just 10 years. China is also pivoting to electric vehicles to combat its air pollution crisis. And so will Americans.

My Bold Prediction 10 Years Ago Paid Off Tremendously… I Expect This One Will Too

Jun 13, 2020

Have you ever heard of a “flashbulb memory”? The term refers to a never-to-be-forgotten moment when something significant or surprising happened. It’s so vivid that it resides in your memory as a “snapshot” that allows you to recall specific details. Some people think of flashbulb memories as the moment they proposed to their spouse… or when their child was born. One of my greatest flashbulb memories took place more than 10 years ago. I made a bold prediction that went against what nearly everyone else was saying. I don’t mean to brag, but it was one of the best calls I ever made. And we find ourselves in a similar situation today. Continue Reading…

The Best Way to Handle the Market Volatility

Jun 12, 2020

Whew. This week was a wild one. We started out with the Nasdaq climbing back to all-time highs – and above 10,000 for the time ever – just three months after falling to unprecedented lows as COVID-19 spread around the world. The Dow was back to within 7% of its own record… but then it fell more than 1,850 points in a single session yesterday. Here we are one day later and stocks are bouncing again. Even after yesterday’s sell-off, the S&P 500 remains nearly 40% off its March lows.  Trading like this can really test an investors’ patience. I get that. So on this week’s new episode of MoneyLine, I detail the volatility and discuss the best ways to handle the drastic ups and downs. Continue Reading…

A Rare 100X Opportunity in This Vital Sector

Jun 11, 2020

The stakes for getting this right could not be higher. COVID-19 has sickened more than seven million people around the world so far, and at least 405,400 people have lost their lives to the pandemic. Innovative biotechnology companies have stepped up to the plate and are racing to create what could become a life-saving treatment for hundreds of thousands in the form of a vaccine. I’m optimistic we could see one as soon as the end of the year. The speed with which vaccine efforts got underway shows how far science has come. Researchers are currently working on 224 candidates , according to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. About 10 of those have advanced to human trials. Continue Reading…

The Portfolio “Insurance” that Can Also Make You a Lot of Money

Jun 10, 2020

Insurance has been referred to as a “necessary evil.” And for good reason. We pay money – sometimes a lot of money – but hope we never have to use it. Seems crazy, but on the rare occasion we do need it, we’re glad we have it. The right insurance can save us a lot of money… and even save us from financial ruin. But… wouldn’t it be better to be able to get insurance that protects our investments and can make us a lot of money? Now we’re talking. Here’s what you need to know… Inflation is a silent portfolio killer. It is one of the greatest dangers a person saving for retirement faces. That’s why I recommend owning some “insurance” against it – just in case things go haywire. Continue Reading…

Powering the Roaring 2020s… And Powering Up Your Portfolio

Jun 09, 2020

When I write to you about the Roaring 2020s and the coming technological breakthroughs, they all have one thing in common. The need for better batteries. Without better batteries that allow for longer driving ranges and more charges, it will be difficult if not impossible for electric vehicles (EVs) to replace gas-powered vehicles. Self-driving vehicles will be powered by batteries, and so will most of the other components – cameras, sensors, video screens, seats, and more. Healthcare will be transformed by wearable medical devices and even implantable devices that gather and transmit data in real time… all of which will be powered by batteries. I could go on and on. Continue Reading…

The Hardest and Most Important Secret to Investing Success

Jun 06, 2020

It is the hardest thing to do as an investor. It is also perhaps the most important thing to do if you want to build life-changing wealth. I’m talking about buying stocks when everybody else is selling. Or, as Warren Buffett famously put it: We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful. Believe me, I know it’s much easier said than done. Our brains are wired to avoid danger, so our gut reaction is to join the panic and sell. But if you can put the emotions aside and let logic, analysis, and market history guide your thinking, you learn that market crises produce some of the best buying opportunities you will ever get. We’ve just learned that lesson again in dramatic fashion… Continue Reading…

You Heard it Here First… We’re Entering the Final Phase of Recovery

Jun 05, 2020

At the start of the COVID-19 crisis and the historic market sell-off, I laid out a Recovery Road Map that predicted how stocks would react throughout the pandemic. It was a four-phase process that I expected would play out over the following 12 to 18 months. Boy was I wrong… but boy was I right, too! Less than three months after the indices crashed to unprecedented lows, the Nasdaq 100 reached a new all-time high today. That’s right, folks. We’ve entered the final phase of recovery. The Recovery Road Map and the rapid return to all-time highs is my main area of focus in today’s new episode of MoneyLine. Continue Reading…
