    The Last Time We Saw This Setup It Gave You the Opportunity For 245% Gains

    There's a lot being written about Greece right now. It's scary, it's problematic and, for the most part, almost totally unusable for the average investor. That's completely unacceptable as far as I'm concerned. So I thought we'd take a good hard look at what you actually need to know, then move on to three Total Wealth Tactics that can help you capitalize on the situation. And I don't just

    What You Really Need to Know to Play Rising Rates (and Win)

    Millions of investors are understandably flummoxed by the prospect of rising rates, and with good reason - it's something that they've never had to contend with because interest rates have been on a one way trip down since 1981 when they peaked above 15%. Naturally, Wall Street's hype machine is in full gear and the headlines are terrifying. For every one telling you this isn't a big deal

    The One Financial Opinion You Should Trust Above All Others

    One of our favorite recommendations was hit with a vicious "short and distort" attack last week that caused no end of discussion in the Total Wealth Family. Comments, emails, and phone calls flew all day long, as you might imagine. Yet one observation stood out above all others. Today I'd like to talk about why, and what it suggests about the courage, conviction, and perspective held by the

    Three Reasons You Shouldn’t Try to Invest Like Warren Buffett

    Many "experts" say that they can help you invest like the legendary Warren Buffett. Most, unfortunately, have no clue how he actually does it. Even those few who do understand his deep-value investing style are holding something back from you. They'll tell you how you can invest like Warren Buffett while omitting a key detail: You shouldn't try to. I know that's heresy in an era when

    Why Shake Shack Is a Bad Investment

    Millions of investors and everyday Americans have discovered Shake Shack's high-end hamburgers. They taste great, and the new chain is a snazzy place to hang out. Logically, they assume that the novel experience will translate into a great investment. Indeed, SHAK gained 8.47% in yesterday's trading session to close near $90 (an all-time high), thanks in part to headlines from this week like

    Your Best Way to Profit from the Narrowest Market in 20 Years

    If you've been frustrated by the markets lately, I've got some good news for you. You're not alone - and more importantly, you're not imagining things. But there's a good reason for the confusion - the markets are demonstrating behavior that's so rare that we've only seen conditions like these six times in the last 20 years. For most people, what happens next is going to be a bust. Yet, for

    Get Your Tactics Ready to Profit from This Supreme Healthcare Event

    Love it or hate it, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is one of the biggest single wealth creation opportunities of the next 50 years. But you can't just pile in like many investors have. That's a recipe for disaster. The biggest profits will belong - like they always do - to those who make a "smart entry." Fortunately, this isn't difficult. The entire sector is tailor-made for one of

    Q: “What is the best financial advice you can give?”

    I'm asked frequently for the "best financial advice" I can give to investors. Most of the time the queries come from more investors who are concerned they may be getting a late start. But lately, I've been getting a lot of questions from people still in their twenties and even teens. Desperate to get ahead and avoid the kinds of losses that their parents have experienced over the past 15

    Your Tell-Tale “Inflection Point” in Today’s Markets

    Greetings from Baltimore! I'm here this week for a conference at the Money Map Press headquarters. But that doesn't mean I'm taking my eye off the markets for one second. Right now they're continuing at all-time highs, and my sense is the markets are getting ready to make a very important transition that's going to catch a lot of investors by surprise. That's why I made time to sit down

    What McDonald’s Earnings Report Today Is Really Telling You

    McDonald's Corp. (NYSE:MCD) reported earnings before the bell Wednesday morning, and missed terribly by almost every metric possible. Yet, traders are taking the stock higher, leading many investors to conclude that they should be along for the ride. Unless you like Vegas-style odds, that's not a bet I'd recommend you make. Our Total Wealth Principles are built around companies with proven

    The Hottest New Place to Find Income in Q2/2015

    Many investors believe that growth and income are mutually exclusive - that you can't have one if you want the other. So they don't give a second thought to high-growth sectors that haven't traditionally paid out. It's one of the costliest mistakes they can make, for the simple reason that the markets change constantly. Think about it for a moment. Just because a sector hasn't paid dividends

    Take Profits in a $1.5 Quadrillion Bubble

    Three successive Fed Chairs have denied its very existence - yet the numbers are too galling to ignore. According to The Bank of International Settlements, there are now $692 trillion in global derivatives worldwide. Factor in credit default swaps and exotics, and the total notional value jumps to an even more jaw-dropping $1.5 quadrillion dollars. That's a bubble 21 times greater than
