Today I want to talk about something most investors misunderstand.
The need to move quickly during a crisis.
More people than you’d care to believe go off the proverbial rails because they do so without the benefit of long-term thinking and perspective.
You’ve worked hard for your money and, if you’re like millions of investors, the coronavirus has hit your portfolio and your wallet hard.
It makes sense to protect your retirement and your money now, more than ever.
Just not like most people think.
Especially when it comes to the stock I want to share with you today.

Becoming a great investor is not easy – especially now.
You will get discouraged. You will want to give up. You will be scared by current market conditions, headlines, the coronavirus situation and more. You will fear missing out on the big rally that’s building (again)
Every investor faces this problem.
There will be days where making money seems like shooting fish in a proverbial barrel… or as impossible as finding a hen’s tooth.
Will the markets go up or down from here?
That is by far the most frequent question I’m getting right now. By phone, by email, via online comments… millions of investors want to know.
I’m not sure that’s is the right question, though.
All that matters is what’s happening with YOUR portfolio.
Up or down doesn’t actually matter.
You may have heard by now that my family and I are “enjoying” a self-imposed quarantine here in the Pacific Northwest because my wife and our oldest son have just returned from Japan.
We’re still only a few days into the suggested 14-day period, but there have already been a few surprises as you might imagine.
Some of which are actually good.
And, more importantly, potentially very profitable, too.

Recent selling has been as brutal as it has been sustained. Many investors are scrambling to figure out how much “more” they can take.
Panic is a perfect contrarian indicator.
History shows very clearly that this selloff will eventually prove to be a monumental buying opportunity – perhaps even, dare I say it, a generational play the likes of which you see once or perhaps twice in your investing lifetime.
Savvy investors who start thinking about that possibility now will have a huge advantage when the time comes.
Especially if you use the right tactics.
Millions of investors are beginning to panic.
The Dow dropped a gut-wrenching 1,031 points Monday from Friday’s close and another points Monday and another 956.29 points Tuesday, following comments from the CDC that the spread of the coronavirus in this country is “inevitable.”
Even CNBC’s Jim Cramer threw in the towel, warning Monday that some stocks are “too toxic to touch.”
But you know what?
There IS a list of stocks worth buying.
What’s more, it’s growing by the minute.

When I started Total Wealth, I promised you that I would not only find and share the world’s best investment opportunities, but also give you behind the scenes information when it matters.
I’ve been up for most of the night crunching numbers and talking with traders around the world in an attempt to figure out what happens next, and what that means for your money.
The answers aren’t readily apparent.
There’s some early buying in the overnight markets as I type, which is a good sign but, as always, the situation could be radically different by the time you read this.
Everything I’ve been warning about for the past few weeks appears to be happening which means that it’s time to begin focusing on the flip side… what happens next.
JoAnna B. pulled me aside sheepishly in Orlando at the World MoneyShow with a great question recently…
…how do I protect big profits on big winners?
Like many folks who’ve been following along in Total Wealth and our sister publication, Money Map Report, she’s sitting on some really terrific winners but doesn’t quite know how to protect the profits that go with ’em.
It’s a fabulous problem and, frankly, one that more investors would love to have.
Selling is one way to go… but not necessarily the best way to go.
Let me explain.
Selling takes you out of the game completely which means, plainly put, that you miss every penny of the profit potential that could be otherwise be yours, if prices go higher still from here.
Which is why you want to stay “in to win” using simple tactics that can help lock in profits while also preserving your upside.

Worried about coronavirus chaos?
You’re not alone. In fact, there are millions of investors in your corner.
I cannot recall a scarier set of circumstances in the 37 years I’ve been active in global markets.
You’re being bombarded with scary headlines, crazy conspiracy theories, and a sea of red ink from people keen to sell you the next hot stocks. It’s a media blitz of unprecedented equal.
Thing is… doom is never the answer.
Getting back to basics is.
That’s why I want to share the only “back to basics” technique I know of that’s never failed to produce huge profits over time.
I thought you might be.
Most investors dream about catching the next market swing, but very few know how to do that. Even fewer know how to do that cost effectively.
I’m getting a lot of questions about that in light of the coronavirus situation at the moment as you might imagine given that the markets are headed higher despite growing headline risk.
If you’re one of ’em and interested in learning how to trade options as a compliment to your regular investing activities, the technique I want to share with you could be right up your alley.
There are a lot of things to like about the trade not the least of which include a low entry cost and high profit potential.
I’m particularly drawn, however, to the defined risk, meaning that you know to the penny what your exposure ahead of time.
Before you spend even a penny in pursuit of profits.

I love to hate the company’s stock.
Earlier this week it hit $498 a share and, in doing so, became worth more than any of the Detroit automakers at any point their history.
Millions of investors are wondering if they should get on board or short the you know what out of it.
The answer comes down to perspective.

Today’s column will contain some of the most valuable investing advice you’ll ever read. But be forewarned. You won’t see this anywhere else. What I have to say is direct… blunt even. I’ve chosen to publish this column today because …
I never thought in a million years that I’d be writing to you about artificial intelligence.
The truth is, I’m just not that kind of guy… or at least, I’ve never thought about myself that way.
My columns and the recommendations that go with ’em usually involve compelling stories, great analysis, and huge profit potential. Normally I thrive on discovering opportunities most investors can’t see, let alone imagine.
Only, in this case, it’s my imagination that IS the story.
The work I’m doing could literally change everything, at least when it comes to identifying big profit potential.
Turning your money into life-changing wealth requires planning… for both success and failure. It also requires competent counsel – meaning somebody who will act in your best interests.
But, finding the right advisor is tough, especially now with the markets at new all time highs.
The Internet is filled with stories of predatory sales practices, manipulative management stories, and just plain incompetence. Chances are good you know somebody who’s had a bad experience, just like I do.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though.
There are great advisors out there if you know how to find them and which questions to ask to make sure you’re on the right track for huge profits rather than devastating losses.
