Every Dollar You’ll Make in the Next 10 Years Is on This List

Keith Fitz-Gerald Oct 03, 2014

Dear Total Wealth Investor,

Welcome to Total Wealth and thanks for being part of the family. I’m thrilled you’re a part of this.

Today I’d like to focus on the central reason we’re spending time together – spotting and investing in unstoppable, global, trillion-dollar trends.

For all the complicated stuff going on around us right now… ISIS, Ebola, the Hong Kong riots, central banking madness… the world is actually a pretty simple place when it comes to your money. And we’re going to navigate that together.

  1. Demographics
  2. Scarcity/Allocation
  3. Medicine
  4. Energy
  5. Technology – including
    Human Augmentation
  6. War, Terrorism, & Ugliness

I say that because, if you look through history, it becomes very clear that humanity has always been and will always be driven by the six key trends on this list.

Of course, there are offshoots and micro-trends (like the Human Augmentation trend I covered in my report out yesterday – click here to see that again). There are even counter-trends. But everything comes back to one of these six things.

More billionaires have been created around these six trends than any other trend not on the list in recorded history.

That’s because capital is a creative force. It wants to grow. You just have to put it in the right place and use disciplined risk management to make that happen. People don’t look at it this way, but I find that’s often simply a matter of perspective.

Most investors are fortunate to grab a really big trend once in their entire investing careers and, in doing so, consider themselves lucky. But I think you can do it consistently and consider yourself wealthy.

That’s why, through the course of our conversation at Total Wealth, I’m going to roll these trends out for you, one at a time, along with a investment you can make now and the trading tactics and risk management tools you’ll need. We started with Human Augmentation. And I can’t wait to show you what’s next.

First, though, let me show you how following the trends delivered a 400% gain…

The Navios Case

During the depths of the 2008 financial crisis, conventional wisdom was that global growth was going to fall off a cliff. Dry bulk shipping stocks, in particular, had been shunned by the market; they were priced as if the end of time had arrived.

Yet I knew there were not just one but THREE of these trends driving a shipping recovery that others didn’t see coming:

  1. Demographics: I knew there were 1.3 billion hungry Chinese who want to live the way we do who were going to continue to grow their economy at 7% or more a year, whether the West fails or not. At the time, there was a new $585 billion Chinese stimulus plan expected to bring 100 million tons of steel demand, and there were earthquake reconstruction efforts too. This was good for shipping companies that carry steel.
  2. Scarcity/ Allocation. Global shipping contracts were getting cut, so the sector was very unpopular. But I knew raw materials, manufactured goods, and especially agricultural products neededto move from A to B – especially for recovery to take hold.
  3. Energy. Global energy demand has increased every year since the beginning of history (since we began tracking such things). Coal, though it may be dirty and hated, is still a major source of energy. Indeed, 2/3 of the world’s electricity comes from coal-burning plants. But someone needs to get the coal to where it’s needed. So a dry bulk shipping company that moves coal would be tapped into the energy trend too.

At the intersection of these three trends was a killer stock that was absurdly cheap.

Action Date Price Return
BUY April 7, 2009 $2.27
SELL HALF OF SHARES (50%) May 4, 2009 $4.54 +100%
SELL HALF OF REMAINING SHARES (25%) January 6, 2010 $6.39 +215%
SELL HALF OF REMAINING SHARES (12.5%) July 22, 2014 $8.90 +400%

So in April 2009, I made a key recommendation that ended up bringing in some tremendous profits… Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (NYSE:NM).

Just four weeks later, it doubled.

Within nine months, it tripled.

Five years on, we recently took a 400% gain.

You can see in the table to the right how my subscribers fare with this trade. We took profits three times, selling half each time, for gains of 100%, 215%, and 400%. And they still have a 6.25% stake riding in NM for more potential gains ahead.

That kind of trade can have a big impact on wealth, especially for the 57% of households that report having less than $25,000 in savings and investments, according to the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.

If one of those folks had invested that $25,000 in NM on my recommendation and took profits three times based on my instructions, they’d be on their way with a new net worth of $80,068 today (before fees and commissions).

By the way, this kind of strategic selling is called “scaling out,” and it’s one of the trading tactics we’ll use – because it’s not just enough to identify the trends and which stocks will benefit. You also have to know how to trade them.

Navios was no fluke, either. It was just one of three stocks I recommended that year, based on one or more of our trends, that have returned triple-digit gains. Folks who followed along have enjoyed total returns of 372.27% and 244.11% in such great companies as Gilead Sciences Inc. and FleetCor Technologies Inc., respectively… so far. I say that because by all indications, they’re just getting started. Many of the companies I follow today could double from here and they’d still be cheap given how much money these trends continue to attract and will attract from here until the end of time.

Bear in mind that this works with or without a financial crisis. It doesn’t matter whose butt is in the White House or if Congress gets its act together. And this type of investing will push ahead no matter how a dozen other “coulda woulda shoulda” scenarios that have a lot of investors confused right now play out. That’s the power of the kinds of trends I’m going to share with you.

My point is that you can master the markets and you can become very wealthy by investing in the six trends I’ve shared with you today that have been at the center of wealth creation since the dawn of time. You just have to know what they are, how much is at stake, and what the keys are for investors.

Making money consistently is absolutely within your grasp.

So stay with me. I’m going to show you how.

I think we’re going to have a lot of fun together and, my hope is, make a lot of money, too.

Best regards for great investing,


P.S.: Before we go, I recommend you print out this list and tape it to your computer monitor (or your forehead if you prefer). These are all unstoppable global trillion-dollar trends that are reshaping the world. Play on the edges or on the fringes and you may get lucky. But build your core investments around these concepts, and odds are that you will do very, very well.

The Six Unstoppable Global Trends

  1. Demographics
  2. Scarcity/Allocation
  3. Medicine
  4. Energy
  5. Technology – including
    Human Augmentation
  6. War, Terrorism, & Ugliness

    Where should we be investing now? Is a crash coming? If so when?

    • GORDON PARKER says:

      awaiting progress – will be anxious to see the results as we continue

      • RubenSSouth1 says:

        Yes good idea to make it happen to have the right of access control and flexibility and control of a sudden and interests of our products and solutions sell half of all three major league in life and I will be a great deal more money and pay for you

    • Ohdmjack says:

      Yes I would like to know also

  2. BERNARD NARCY says:

    I can see where this is going. Never before had i thought these types of gains were possible. I never did doubt Keith per se because i have never dealt with him on a personal basis like this. I am really looking forward to a long,fun filled exciting way to put some money into my account. Just a few NM’s would be real nice.

  3. andre fortier says:

    no crash but a down market for a short while to eleminate the weak hands. in a election year and 2 yeqrs before election it should help the market go up and factory investing. it is a recovery. the world population is growing and the wars all over the planet will help the economy. rebuilding will have to be done one day.

  4. Keith Fitz-Gerald says:

    Thanks so much for your time and for the thoughtful questions today. I will be answering each of them as fast I can get to them in upcoming columns.

    …where to invest now
    …how to prepare for a crash and what to do in the meantime
    …and, how the political mid-terms play into what’s happening at the moment (surprisingly it’s NOT what you may think but everything you would expect)

    For now, though, I want you to review your investments and make decisions on what you want to keep and what you’d be comfortable letting go. I don’t know your individual situation so I can’t say specifically.

    Then, I want you to begin wrapping your mind around change because many of the best opportunities actually come from chaos. So we’ll need to be mentally prepared for that. That sounds trivial I know, but when you see what I’ve got to share with you next week, you know why emotion is so important to higher, more consistent returns.

    Again, thanks for being here and welcome. I, too, look forward to a long, fun and hopefully very profitable journey together in the years ahead.

    Best regards for great investing, great friendships and even greater profits,

    Keith 🙂

  5. Marcel Thevoz says:

    Thank you. It is time to educate the investor with focus on long term trends away from the day to day wild moves at the market. Great job.

    Excellent information for our investment direction. As a scientist, I knew the exponential exploration of computer science will revolutionize human performance in the future. However, I didn’t realize it is already here.

    Great recommendtion.

  8. Daniel McFarland says:

    I am finding your articles very interesting and I am ready to follow.

    • Panos says:

      Same here. I have just joined in and everything I hear so far sounds really straight forward. What I would also be helpful to hear is how many of the suggested tips did over the past years did not go well

  9. Jo Shannon says:

    Retired with little to spare for investments involving ‘risk’… may dabble but likely limited to watch and play the game with imaginary funds.

  10. Eric Larson says:

    Dear Keith

    I am really excited about your Total Wealth letter and Monday morning, I will start to
    implement your first recommendation, which I think has tremendous potential. You also
    can’t beat the price to buy your first pick. Can’t wait for the next idea in the trends you are
    setting up.

    I must 2nd Joe H’s question of where to invest today, How much should be in cash right now to be able to take advantage of opportunities as they appear. Lastly, what should be the trailing stop? Would 25% be a good starting point?

  16. Byron M says:

    I purchased shares of your first RECO. In the past I have been really bitten when I buy such low cost shares. They jump up and then do nothing but sink and usually very rapidly. I hope this time will be different. I am anxious for your next pick. By the way, what do you think about BABA? Some folks seem to think it is the next WMT. What is your take?

  17. ROB says:

    I had watched you many times over the years on FBN. when I saw your email I was very interested. I purchased your 2 recommendations and am happily in the green. Thank you…and keep us informed.

    • Keith says:

      Good evening Rob. Thanks for the kind words and for watching.

      I try my very best to deliver honest, actionable and profitable perspective; the fact that you’ve taken the time to let me know is humbling and I appreciate it very much.

      Best regards,

      Keith 🙂

  18. Jay says:

    I’m somewhat surprised you omitted FOOD and POTABLE WATER in your unstoppable global trends.

    • Keith says:

      Thanks for asking and for being part of the Family Jay.

      It’s actually something I am following very closely as part of Trend #2 – Scarcity and Allocation. And, I’ll be talking about both in the weeks ahead.

      Best regards,
      Keith 🙂

  21. Keith says:

    Good morning!

    Wow…I am tremendously humbled by your comments and the obviously clear thinking that has gone into them. I will do my best to answer them in the days ahead so please keep ’em coming.

    Thanks for being part of the family.

    Keith 🙂

  22. ozzie george says:

    Your promise was a comprehensive coverage of items 1 to 6 but you only covered 1, 2 and 4 (although it’s not hard for one to come to conclusions on #3 – Medicine).
    While it was interesting reading as far as you got, do you intend to cover the rest of the subject areas – 3, 5, 6 ?

    • Editor says:

      Thanks for being part of the family. Keith will be getting to every last one of the trends and then some in the weeks ahead. Plus, he’ll be revisiting them as market conditions change and covering the tactics needed to stay in the hunt.

  23. Susan says:

    I have never invested before. Where do I go to get started an how much cash should I start out with? ie… $100 or

  24. Cindy Jo Speck says:

    Do you guys ever look for yield? I bought 500 share of EKSO TODAY but 3 years or more to get to $21.00+?
    I was thinking that if I was to put 100k in the IWM, 100k in the SPY, 50k in the GDX, & 50k in the GDXJ instead of picking stocks individually & having to reposition, use trailing stocks, sell & buy at the right time, etc….. Would I not come out ok, or maybe even better, I already own BABA & APPL AS WELL AS THE GLD. But I want dividend payments coming to my mailbox every day!!!
    It was just something I came up with today. I bought 10 shares of TSLA ‘s Oct. 18 ,$55.00 strike for $5.00 & sold them 2 weeks later for $12.00.; making a $7000.00 profit in just 2 weeks. I’m just not convinced that buy & hold is better than options. Can you please give me some reasons ? Warren Buffett put in his will for his wife to invest all their money in the S & P 500 should he pass. He’s one of the smartest investors I know. Why would he do that?

    • Mary Ann says:

      1) consider that If the markets take a recession dive- ( which i think will happen by late 2015 (2016 for sure-)printing of monopoly $ & debt combined globally,.. , Do you have enough money to live on every month when your IWM trade falls in half? that is YOUR answer. I’m betting his wife will NOT really need his S&p 500 or iwm money to live on right away:)….. 2nd I know trading can be insane at moments.( i have a few),.But One of my biggest & BEST trade is cashing out after long run ups.. on the IWM.. and then BUYING the orange 12/26 mov avg line when it crosses North up into the 9da MG avg (red line-on my chart) across of the IWM.. I dont try to grab the bottom because your catching a falling knife, loses $$….Wait just a bit, because when it does cross you are far more safe to REALLY buy. and let it run Up into the TOP of the Bollinger band. Then I sell–and wait for the next dip. even the 3-5% dips not to mention the last Oct 8% was wonderful!! i think our US market needs a BIG correction 2015… . nibbling at cvx, Rds/ own PFE & sbux . But so we are clear If the IWM crashes warren wife can live for three yrs with a recession.. and their index fund stocks tanked– CAN YOU?

    • Ger artinos says:

      Do you mean you bought one 1 (mini) TESLA Oct 18 $55 Call for $5.00 (total cost $50.00) and you sold it two weeks later for $12.00 (total proceeds 120.00) and you made a profit of $70.00 ?

  25. Cindy Jo Speck says:

    I’m a bit confused. Are you saying that if I was to put 25k into each of the six stocks you recommend , I will /could produce $80k? I’m very confused!!!
    Can anyone answer my question? I’ve only traded options in the last 7 years & I’m taking on a new role with whom I believe to be one of the best energy investors of our time, but it worries me that I have to hold a stock for so long.
    Thank you

    Hi Keith,
    I am writing you to ask your advice on how to get started with Investing &/or buying stocks, etc. I have come into some money and would like to make some investments to hopefully grow my income. I have never dealt with buying stocks or mutual funds, etc… I have an IRA, an Annuity and a few shares with Exxon that a friend set up for me years ago. I hate to sound so naive, but the fact of the matter is that I need to face the truth. Thus, I am asking for your advice, input &/or recommendations. I may be asking too much. But, as they say – “Nothing Ventured – Nothing Gained!”
    I would appreciate any advice you would be willing to share with me.
    Thank you! Sally

    I am starting with $100.00 per month to invest. Am I starting something that you can help me increase my future investments with?

How do I start buying stock in such a way that costs will not over-ride my initial expenses?

    Is there a formula that you have for figuring where to put a trailing stop on any investment that you buy? I recently bought a stock but don’t know what is a realistic stop to put on it. I saw where you said to use a percentage but don’t know what you think is an acceptable amount.

  43. Andy says:

    keith, I purchased a stock that you recommended and was going to put a trailing stop on it but you also mentioned it could fall way below that percentage due to market factors. Is this an exception where i don’t put a trailing stop on it till it has played out to the lower number and then put a trailing stop on? thank you

    • Leonard "Leo" Bellam says:

      Hi Kieth. So far I do value your insights Kieth, and I greatly appreciate the time and the effort you have given into presenting these facts to your audience. I am a student in Economics and Business Management who has been watching the World stock markets and political scenes for the past three years, and I think that what you have offered so far is sound investing. I will enjoy your posts, and I welcome you to give to me your insights which I strongly agree with in the proportions that any adult competent in understanding the stock markets can consume. I love your 6 trends they make the most absolute sense, and the 2008 recession was properly spoken of in your description of events which I cannot agree with more. You said it correctly Kieth when you said that the World is a hungry place for capital investing, and that is true. May I add that the World will grow exponentially like China, for example, which has grown at about 7% annually. Yes, even the Indians want to live like Americans and Canadians, and will be growing their economy at an alarming rate. Take care my friends, and welcome to investing.

    Keith, A company that is positioned for exponential growth is Quadrant Four (QFOR), a high tech data base management company taking a leadership position in Healthcare Exchanges, and grade school educational management of students. The company is selling at roughly a $25 million market cap with revenue this year on track for $60 million and likely $100 million next year. Management invests $5 million per year in technology upgrades. The company recently signed up the largest Professional Employer Organization in the country to its healthcare exchange data base servicing more than a million lives. The business model is recurring and scalable, not impacted by a recessionary business cycle.

    I guess that is the tech age for business income. Hype, hype, hype., ZIP, Nada.

    Now that that is over, there are LOTS of very interesting stocks I’d get, but without a name or ticker, it won’t happen.

    • Rob says:

      I agree. Sometimes I think they forget that not everyone has money. As I am losing every penny I have through a desperate choice. And desperate you would grasp of you saw how I live and spent what money I could for info.in order to live a better life instead of the 41 hard years I have and still living on a couch caused by others misery and as they did. Moved on as I still suffer. 3 and a half years of not knowing the feeling of trust or even friends nor longer. Now home and a simple bed with a sheet I have been dreaming of since the moment I was forced out. do to not being able to afford even living costs or food cause of an attack I was subject to. I have stood tall and still hear but unable to see society the same or finding my confidence again has done nothing but beat me down as a man. I believed so much in this sunedison nonsense which makes more sense for them to go bankrupt and drag it through courts as the yieldco will still earn every year and liquidate as back up cash through the years of battle
      Whatever the case. I’m on Def ears and looks by morning I’ll be broke. As its on the pink sheet realm. Fml. Well I guess I’ve learned a harsh lesson hear as well. Need money to make money and no one can sways be right. Even the pros can be wrong at times. Unfortunately for them. They lose a few bucks. Oh well. Some get it all I was told one day through hard work and some who work even harder end up like me lost and falling into the grey. Goodnight.
