    Five Questions Wall Street Hopes You’ll Never Ask

    The Dow and the S&P 500 are up more than 4% in the past month and millions of investors are finally gathering up the confidence to tippy-toe back into the markets. But, problem is, they have no idea where to start. Thankfully, you don't have that problem - you're here and that gives you a huge advantage. Sometimes, though, that's not enough. Good counsel is absolutely vital when it

    How to Make Your Retirement as Profitable as Possible

    James Altucher thinks 401k retirement plans are scams. In a video that went viral after being posted last year on Business Insider, the 48-year old hedge fund manager, entrepreneur and best-selling author says that "I honestly think that you should just take your money out of 401ks." His reasons? He lists three. You'll have no idea what's happening to your money when it's tied up in a

    If You Want an Accurate Financial Forecast, Ask a Waiter

    Many investors really start to study the markets this time of year in an effort to divine what's next for global markets and, by implication, their portfolios.  Corporate earnings, jobless statistics, and the latest Fed machinations all play into the mix. But I prefer to simply head for some of the world's top steak houses like Bobby Van's in New York, the Hawksmoor in London, or the CHAR Bar

    Investors following this strategy could have made at least 425% during the last market downturn

    Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney is as smart as they come, which is why I wasn't surprised in the least that he cut right to the chase Monday morning, asking me within seconds of the market opening: "What specific strategies can our viewers use to make a lot of money really fast in today's markets?" Two things, I replied. You short the weakest companies - meaning you bet on them

    What to Do Now If You’re Short Twitter

    We've talked a lot about why you want to pay attention to what Wall Street does, not what it says. Today we're going to tackle that subject again. Why? Because you've got another king-sized opportunity on your hands, or at least that's what one analyst wants you to think. Before I tell you what it is, though, I have to begin with a story that sets the stage. So grab a cup of your

    When I started Total Wealth I promised you that we'd not only cover the top money making opportunities of our time, but also the trades, tips, and tactics needed to maximize your wealth. Today I want to keep that promise with a look at the Lowball Order. We've talked about lowball orders before.

    The Four Most Dangerous Stocks on Wall Street Today

    Conventional wisdom is that "rising water raises all boats" but that's not always the case. In fact, not a single one of the four stocks we've targeted as being ripe for a fall has gone along for the ride despite the fact that the S&P 500 tacked on 8.8% last month and the Dow moved higher by 9.15% over the same time frame. All four of the companies I told you were ripe for failure are

    Analysts Get It Wrong Again and You’ve Got Another Double Digit Opportunity

    There's an old joke on Wall Street that makes the rounds every now and again... ...God invented analysts to make weather forecasters look good. Meant as a tongue in cheek poke at the complexity of financial markets, it's unfortunately all too true. Conventional analysts are often blind to new developments, changes in earnings, evolving consumer habits, and more. Worse, like ostriches,

    Morgan Stanley Analysts Join Us on the GoPro Bandwagon

    "Better late than never" goes the old expression. Morgan Stanley analysts cut their target price for GoPro shares by -43.5% from $62 a share to $35 a share Tuesday... after the stock had already fallen 67% from its high of $93.85/share in October 2014. To say they're in firm command of the obvious is an understatement. Still, millions of investors were surprised and the stock got

    VW: Don’t Go Bottom Fishing Yet

    Preconditioned to "buy the dips" and capitalize on special situations, millions of investors have picked up shares in Volkswagen with the hope of making a killing on the rebound. I think that's a mistake. No doubt special situations can create huge profits, but what's happening now with VW is very different and poses special risks other "turnarounds" don't. We're going to talk about that

    The #1 Reason to Love a Government Shutdown – Double-Digit Profits

    Sigh... we stand yet again on the verge of another government shutdown. This time the bickering centers on funding related to Planned Parenthood which has been linked to the appalling sales of fetal body parts in recent months, while other legislators insist on a planned multi-billion dollar tax hike for private equity managers. What could possibly go wrong - other than everything?! The way

    Big Double Digit Returns Hiding in Plain Sight

    Entirely too many investors lurch from one stock to another in a desperate search for higher returns. While a precious few get lucky, the majority doom themselves to abysmal returns. Wall Street, of course, loves this, because this kind of behavior generates huge commissions and gives professional traders a self-replenishing source of fuel... your money. Thankfully, it doesn't have to be

    Four Black Monday Takeaways Wall Street Hopes ETF Investors Never Understand

    Exchange-traded funds - ETFs for short - are billed as among the most investor-friendly products ever created, thanks to low fees, intra-day pricing, and unprecedented flexibility versus the mutual funds they've ostensibly "replaced." In reality, ETFs are yet another Wall Street creation designed to separate you from your money. Proponents will undoubtedly cry foul as will many Wall Street

    Stocks Go Nuts But the Question Remains – Will the Rally Stick?

    On the heels of Monday's vicious 1,000+ point "dip" and Wednesday's subsequent 619 point "rip " higher, many investors are asking one question - will the rally stick? The media certainly seems to think so: ...Relief Descends on US Stock Market with Best Rally Since 2011 - Bloomberg ...Dow, S&P Enjoy Biggest Percentage Gains in Four Years - MarketWatch ...Chinese Stock Index Jumps
