    Update: Facebook’s Libra Is STILL a Bad Idea – Buy This Instead

    Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB) is a wreck.

    And Libra – the global cryptocurrency it wants to establish?

    Let’s just say it’s a four-letter word that I can’t use in this column. And, leave it at that.

    Thankfully, though, there’s another company with digital monetary aspirations you’ll want to own.

    It’s bigger, better and well established.

    What’s more, the company I’m recommending recorded profits of $16.75 billion last year alone.

    Yes, ANYONE Can Be A GREAT Investor!

    I unknowingly struck a nerve last week when I mentioned investing with an edge and told you that I was talking about “holy crap, I can’t believe this is happening kind of money.”

    Our customer service lines lit up and I heard from more than one person personally…

    … can we really do this?

    In a word – YES!

    No matter what stage of your investing journey you are at right now – maybe you’re a beginner just starting out or a millionaire looking to refine your edge – you CAN make your profits bigger, more consistent, and better.

    I’ve worked with people from every economic strata, every walk of life, from the bottom to the top, and – let me tell you something – it’s not about where you start that makes the difference.

    It’s about deciding to be rich.

    Then, making the right moves with the right stocks at the right time.

    WeWork: How to Play What Happens Next

    Charles Schwab told CNBC earlier this week that he would never buy the money-losing companies going public these days.

    Neither would I.

    This year’s initial public offerings have been the least profitable of any year since the tech bubble nearly 20 years ago. They’re a sham being foisted upon unsuspecting investors.

    WeWork, a media darling that Wall Street loved to talk about, is a particularly egregious example.

    The workspace sharing company was supposedly worth $47 billion just prior to pulling its offering according to greedy lawyers, Silicon Valley execs, and angel investors – all of whom were hoping you wouldn’t notice that the math doesn’t add up.

    I only wish the company had blown up sooner.

    Because then I wouldn’t have to say what I’m about to with regards to Uber, Lyft and Peloton.

    How to Profit If Starbucks “Hates” In-Store Customers Like Me

    Like millions of Seattleites, I’ve cheered Starbucks Inc. (NasdaqGS:SBUX) on for years.

    I’ve watched, cheered, and consumed my fair share of coffee as the company’s grown from the one-room grinding shop where it started in the Pike Place Market to the worldwide brand it is today. And, in return, I’ve always felt that the company valued my business.

    No longer.

    In fact, I think there’s a good case to be made that Starbucks “hates” in-store customers like me.

    That’ll be bad for unsuspecting stockholders who get caught mid-latte, but great for savvy investors who line up big profits as the price of Starbucks’ shares falls.

    Let’s talk about how to line up big profits now as Starbucks loses its buzz

    Good Thing MONEY is a Lot More Profitable (And Fun to Talk About)

    The news cycle is overwhelmingly negative at the moment and I’m hearing from a lot of people who fear that the worst is ahead. You’re not alone if you’re among them!

    In fact, I feel the angst, too and that makes me GLAD that we don’t do politics around here… that we deal with MONEY.

    It’s simpler.

    It’s far more profitable.

    And, it’s fun… or at least it should be anyway.

    I mean really… how many more headlines can we hear about impeaching the President, about the trade war, about the war on success … before we all go numb … nor nuts???!!!

    I think a good chunk of the world is there now, frankly.

    Money is a different animal, though.

    No matter how bad things get, no matter how atrocious the headlines become, no matter how disgusting the political vitriol will get … money will always be on the move.

    And that means profits are, too

    This One Tool Made the Difference Between Bankruptcy and $13 Million

    The worst manufacturing numbers in a decade remind me of an old joke that’s made its way around financial circles over the years. It goes something like this:

    An investment banker walks into a room where his cohorts are in a meeting. “I’ve got good news and bad news,” he announces. “The bad news is, we’ve just lost $100 million. The good news is, it wasn’t ours.” An associate raises his hand. “What was the bad news again?”

    It’s humor, but there’s more than a grain of truth to the story. Whether we’re talking about brokers, bankers, or even your most trusted financial advisor, you cannot rely on anyone else to care about your money and keep it safe.

    At the end of the day, the only thing standing between your portfolio and catastrophic loss is your own caution and proper risk management.

    I know it’s not the most exciting part of investing. But there’s zero doubt in my mind it is the most important.

    That’s why it’s part of the Total Wealth Strategy.

    One tool called position sizing stands out above all others as the most powerful – and not just for cutting risk either, but for boosting your profits, too.

    To see what I mean, consider this anecdote from trading psychologist Dr. Van Tharp:

    “We’ve done many simulated games in which everyone gets the same trades. At the end of the simulation, 100 different people will have 100 different final equities. And after 50 trades, we’ve seen final equities that range from bankrupt to $13 million – yet everyone started with $100,000, and they all got the same trades. Position sizing and individual psychology were the only two factors involved – which shows just how important position sizing really is.”

    Here’s how I recommend you start using it right now

    One Move to Make Any Investment Risk “Free” (and Build Profits Even Faster)

    There’s no way to eliminate risk 100% when it comes to investing.

    I can’t do it. You can’t do it. (And if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, take your money and run.)

    There’s just no such thing.

    Yet, unbeknownst to most investors, there is a way to make any investment risk “free” under the right circumstances using one of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics: the “Free Trade.”

    Not only does this remove risk from your portfolio, but it means you can potentially build profits faster, more consistently, and more securely than you might think.

    Doing so is a critically important concept given current market conditions and a bull market that, as of yesterday is 3,117 days old and has run more than 324.12%+ off March 9, 2009 lows according to Yahoo!Finance using adjusted prices that reflect dividends and reinvestment.

    We’re long overdue for a correction… a correction, I might add, that YOU don’t have to fear if you understand what we’re going to talk about today.

    This is your moment of truth.

    You can read today’s column and bin it, or you can rethink what you know about what it takes to achieve the kind of life-altering profits that make the financial future of your dreams possible.

    Of course, I’m hoping that you’ll choose the latter.

    Why I Love to Hate Alexa Glasses
