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.
Chinese stocks have been absolutely clobbered over the past year by nervous investors who fear the worst from Chinese trade talks.
I can’t think of a worse – or potentially more expensive – mistake.
A deal is imminent.
That means you want to plan for the best and, not to mention, all the profit potential you can handle.
The stocks I want to tell you about today have excellent fundamentals, terrific growth, and preferred status with China’s ruling elite. They are “global challengers” in the truest sense of the word.

Remember when analysts were falling all over themselves to bash Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) a few months ago?
Now, imagine one of Wall Street’s biggest and most powerful firms lying to you the ENTIRE TIME it was doing so – while simultaneously (and very quietly) hatching plans to invest $200+ million…
… in partnership with the very company it was publicly trashing???!!!
Boy, you’re going to love this.

Most Americans are preconditioned to hate China… which means their money is at risk when a deal happens.
It will happen.
Western media is exceptionally good at telling you who said what, but very rarely do they go beyond that – which means they miss the subtleties.
Not surprisingly, that’s usually where the real story is.

Opinions on Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) are like bellybuttons in that everybody has one.
Proponents think the company’s stock will go to the moon. Detractors think it’ll crumble like a stale cookie.
I don’t know and, frankly, don’t care.
But ask who’s going to make a pile of money?
You’ve probably heard the news.
…Stocks rally with shutdown-averting deal in reach ~ Bloomberg
…Dow jumps on tentative deal to avoid government shutdown ~ CNBC
…Stocks Surge on US-China Trade Talks, tentative budget deal ~ Fox Business
It doesn’t say “For Now” at the end.
We’ve been here before so many times that the premise is almost laughable. Today’s politicians are interested in only one thing … getting re-elected.

Paul S. feels like a genius.
“I am absolutely bragging,” he told my research team shortly before a presentation I gave in California two years ago. “I feel like I have to, because what’s happened to my retirement prospects is both wonderful and amazing at the same time.”
Paul should feel terrific. He’s managed to nurse a retirement nest egg that’s now pushed past half a million dollars, and multiplied itself three times over in the process…
… in only 11 years, at a time when the S&P 500 returned only 8%;
… despite the fact that he’s not a stock-picking savant; and,
… using just the plain-Jane mutual funds in his company retirement plan.
As soon as he explained his journey, I just knew I had to share it with you.
Hopefully, like me, you’ve got one foot out the door on the way to Memorial Day festivities. Knowing that’s the case, I don’t want to be the person who ruins your weekend especially with all the pessimism that’s running rampant on the Internet and in the headlines.
Instead, what I want to do is share some of the most valuable investment advice I ever received.
Just thinking about what a difference it’s made in my life is putting a smile on my face as I write. That’s because I’m optimistic that it will have the same impact in yours.
I received an important question last week from Margaret who, at 81-years young, has a problem most members of the Total Wealth Family would love to have.
No, scratch that… a problem I am going to do my very best to make sure you have.

Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney put it to Keith directly this morning when he asked about where markets are heading, “in 20 seconds or less.” With trillions of dollars still sitting on the sidelines, small businesses looking optimistically to the future, and valuations based on real growth, Keith quickly shows that the markets’ path of least resistance is up.

As you might imagine, I work with a lot of numbers in my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist, so I’m pretty jaded when it comes to using statistics to make a point. But, every once in a while I come across something that stops me in my tracks.
Like the following data from Bankrate on the state of the American Dream:
…6 in 10 Americans do not have enough savings to cover an unplanned $500 expenditure
…and of the 41% who do, a whopping 20% would put it on a credit card. Still another 20% would have to cut spending to pay it, and fully 11% would ask family and friends for help.
If you’re tempted to dismiss this information, do so at your own risk.
More than 3 billion people are going to join the global “conversation” we’re having about money within the next decade and that means huge profits will be made by those who have an approach that works.
By now most investors know that they can make a lot of money if they own a stock President Trump likes. But what they don’t know is that they could make even more money when he “hates” one.
Like he “hates” the company I want to tell you about today.
Every time the markets brush all-time highs, I get asked by nervous investors if they should consider buying any stocks at these levels.
My answer is always the same: Yes – if this one condition holds true.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s meeting with President Trump on Friday is centered on trade and economic partnership, and there’s more in the works than anyone realizes. It could create 700,000 jobs, open up entirely new markets, and generate $450 billion in GDP. Here’s how to play these numbers that Keith believes could even prove conservative.
My editor couldn’t believe it…
“But Keith, you consider it one of the most dangerous stocks on Wall Street!”
“Not one of…” I replied. “The most dangerous stock on Wall Street.”
And every investor needs to own it at least once in their investing lifetime.
