Every Dollar You’ll Make in the Next 10 Years Is on This List
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.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
|NAVIOS MARITIME TRADE – 2009-2014|
|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.
