One of My Best Calls Can Help You Make Money Right Now

Mar 12, 2019

Exactly 10 years ago, I nailed it. I don’t mean to brag, but it was one of the best calls I ever made. The date was Friday, March 6, 2009. I was appearing on television on Fox Business. The market had been in a long and brutal decline after the financial crisis and Great Recession. The S&P 500 was down 57% from its last high, which had come nearly two years earlier. Investors were not happy. I went against the grain. The selling was about done, I said. Long-term investors needed to buy stocks. The market made its intraday bottom that very day. The next trading day, Monday, March 9, the S&P 500 made its closing low of 676.53. Ten years later on Friday, March 8, 2019, the S&P closed at 2,743.07 – a 311% gain. Continue Reading…

How to Profit From the “Holy Grail” That is Transportation 2.0

Mar 08, 2019

Is he a brilliant innovator creating the next world-beating company? Or is he a brilliant eccentric with fascinating ideas but whose company never gets past a certain point? I’m not sure we know the answer to that question yet. But what I do know is that Elon Musk is front and center in some of the giant investment trends in which investors can make 20 times… 30 times… even 40 times their money. If you bet against him, you take your chances. If you bet with him, you take your chances as well. Most of the giant investment trends Musk finds himself in the middle of fall into what I call Transportation 2.0 – an industry I have no doubt will be worth trillions of dollars one day.

Martha Stewart and the Huge Marijuana Story Everyone is Missing

Mar 06, 2019

They seem an unlikely pair to co-host a TV show. One is a rapper and actor. The other is a home decorating and lifestyle guru (whatever that is). Both are successful entrepreneurs. Both have had run-ins with the law. They are also friends, and their show is called “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.” It started over two years ago on VH1, but whoever named it must have had a crystal ball. The title now means more than a meal where everybody brings something. Both Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are now involved with a pot company. In fact, Snoop’s management company was the one that suggested Canopy Growth (CGC) get in touch with Martha Stewart. Continue Reading…

Miracle-Gro and Marijuana: How to Cash In on Legal Weed with “Picks and Shovels”

Mar 05, 2019

I’ve made no secret of my enthusiasm for marijuana as an explosive trend, and for certain pot stocks with big potential. Today, let’s do something that may sound a little strange at first. Let’s set aside the companies that handle the actual marijuana flower, CBD oil, and hemp – and look at some what I call “secondary” plays. Why? For one thing, without federal legalization, the NYSE and NASDAQ won’t list marijuana stocks that do business in the United States. More importantly, though, secondary plays can actually be one of the best ways to participate in a long-term investment trend. Continue Reading…

How Identifying “Jumper” Stocks Ahead of the Crowd Can Make You Rich

Mar 04, 2019

While many U.S. states have legalized various forms of marijuana, it is still illegal on a federal level and classified a Schedule 1 drug. This has a lot of ramifications, but few of them matter as much as the ripple effects in financial regulation. Marijuana companies based in the U.S. cannot trade on either the NYSE or NASDAQ. Any company that touches the plant or engages in any activity that is deemed illegal at the federal level will not be approved to list on the major exchanges. As a result, most marijuana companies trade on the OTC market. But as legalization spreads, the door will open for many of these companies to uplist – or “jump” – to the big exchanges. Continue Reading…

Why NOW is the Time to Buy Gene Therapy Stocks

Mar 02, 2019

The biotech industry has been on a tear in 2019, up 25% through the first two months of the year. That’s great. But the niche gene therapy sector is performing even better. The rally has been fueled by a strong combination of merger announcements, positive news from the FDA, and the continued development of breakthrough therapies. There is absolutely no question that there is money to be made in the gene therapy industry over the long term. It's on track to make you life-changing profits as long as you can weather the ups and downs that are simply the nature of early-stage mega-trends. Continue Reading…

Forget a Marijuana “Bubble” – It’s Time to Make Money

Feb 27, 2019

Welcome to the best start in 32 years. In just the first two months of 2019, the S&P 500 is up 11.5%. Heck, we could close the market now and finish the year ahead of the historical average of just under 10% gains. But why would we? There is more to come. Much more. I have two predictions for you. First, I believe the S&P 500 will be up as much as 25% at some point during 2019. I said that before the year began, and I’m sticking with it. Second, marijuana stocks will continue to blow away the market. I was recently asked by CNN to talk about my expectations for the market. I made the same prediction to Richard Quest. He was a little surprised, so we made a friendly wager on whether the market hits a 25% gain. Continue Reading…

3 eSports Stocks to Benefit from the Boom

Feb 25, 2019

When a leading marketing publication like Adweek prints a major headline about an up-and-coming trend, we should all take notice. It certainly grabbed my attention when “Any Brand Not Marketing in the Esports World is Already Behind the Curve” hit the internet on Tuesday. An industry valued at $1.5 billion with a global audience of 385 million is tough to miss. Yet most advertisers have been completely ignoring the world of eSports. Big mistake. The backers of the industry include the biggest names in professional sport. And this is just the beginning. The continued growth of eSports will continue, and there will be plenty of catalysts to help propel it to the next level. Continue Reading…

5 Stock Charts Ripe for a Breakout

Feb 23, 2019

The S&P 500 has kicked off 2019 on a strong note. It has put together a strong 20% rally off its December and only has another 5% to go before reaching the all-time high it set in September. I believe the S&P will break into record territory in the near future. But before that occurs, I suspect we’ll see a handful of individual stock rally through resistance levels as well. We are already starting to see this happen. It’s a great sign of things to come. But we can make a lot more money by spotting the breakouts before they occur as opposed to after. Today, I’d like to talk about five stocks that are right on the edge of breaking out. Continue Reading…

The Berkshire Hathaway of Marijuana

Feb 20, 2019

Marijuana stocks have been killing it. I’ve recommended multiple cannabis-related stocks in my Investment Opportunities service. Every one of them is up in the first seven weeks of the year with an average gain of 56.5%. It’s all because of the historic boom taking place thanks to the spreading legalization of marijuana… which in turn is creating a historic boom in legal marijuana stocks. Believe it or not, medical marijuana is now legal in 33 of the 50 states – that’s two-thirds of the country. Weed is now the fastest-growing industry in America. And the best news is that we’re still in the early stages of this sweeping trend. It’s not too late to make a lot of money if you’re not already. Continue Reading…
