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.
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.
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.
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.

I unknowingly struck a chord with last week’s Weekender when I addressed the surprisingly simple reason money makes people uncomfortable… that it’s not working as hard as you think it is.
“You nailed it,” said Bryan.
“Simple, understandable, and perspective I needed to hear,” remarked Janice.
So, let’s go back to the proverbial well this week with a look at three surprising reasons why investors really fail. Then, we’ll talk about using a few of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics to ensure you don’t repeat their mistakes.
And potentially make a mint, too.
The Dow is off 160 points as I write Monday on fears that higher oil prices will stunt global growth.
The real reason is something far more basic.
Let’s talk about that today and how you can profit.

Millions of investors are focused on the past right now.
That’s a huge disadvantage because it’s the future that matters – both in terms of how we live our lives and how we make our money.
Especially when it comes to how they view current headlines.
I don’t blame ’em, though.
They’ve been brainwashed to believe that life moves because of what’s already happened. So they see the financial markets the same way and, not surprisingly, get stuck in a rut.
That’s too bad, especially right now.

First there was China, then politics, then rates… a trifecta of sorts at best or even a perfect storm depending on your perspective.It looks like the markets are going to take us for a wild ride – but we aren’t worried. As long as you follow this advice, you’ll be looking at potential profits no matter what. Click here to watch.

We’re moving forward with China, but not the way you might expect. We’ve made potential deals with France, India, England, and Germany – and China is starting to worry that we don’t need them as much as they think we do. Keith Fitz-Gerald lays out exactly what to expect with China, the stock markets, and the trade tensions in these new developments.
I can’t help but be shaken by what’s happening in Hong Kong, even though U.S. markets have largely shaken off the rioting, chaos, and police action there so far. You see, I recall Tiananmen Square in 1989 vividly and fear that Beijing may be approaching another Tiananmen Square moment.
A 2.0 situation really.
Westerners believe that Beijing won’t risk the reputational hit that goes with armed intervention, but I beg to differ. Nobody thought that in 1989 when protestors took over Tiananmen Square either.
Beijing’s calculus is different for reasons I noted on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. this past Wednesday during a special phone interview. Worse, Beijing may prefer violence to the perception of political weakness or territorial rights.
Very few people understand what I am about to tell you… and that’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you pay attention or risk being on the wrong side an opportunity lurking unseen below the surface.

U.S. markets have shaken off what’s happened in Hong Kong, but that may not be the case for long. These riots may impact your money closer to home, but there’s an easy way to keep your money safe – and keep buying for maximum profit potential. Click here to watch.

Keith joined Varney & Co to discuss why China’s stance in Hong Kong suggests that nation could be dangerously close to Tiananmen 2.0 and what the impact will be on US markets ahead. Click here to watch.
I can only shake my head.
Government regulators and the attorney generals (“AGs”) from more than a dozen states are apparently circling big-tech like a pack of wild dogs circles their prey according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
Only it’s the regulators and AGs who will go hungry.
Yesterday’s antitrust regulation cannot be used to rein in big-tech.

Keith went on Cavuto yesterday with a message to investors: Chaos creates opportunity.
Big tech is coming under pressure, and the state governments are getting involved. The current laws, as written, don’t apply here, and the government is going to have to prove harm to consumers to move forward, which is why states are getting involved.
The chaos created by the headlines are going to create knee-jerk reactions, drive the market lower, and give you the perfect opportunity to buy. Click here to watch.
It’s panic stations for many investors this morning now that the yield curve has inverted – meaning short-term rates are higher than long term rates.
The problem is that much of what you’re hearing is flat-out wrong and, potentially very dangerous for your money.

Monday’s hair-raising 760-point Dow caught a lot of investors by surprise.
I got asked, “Why is this happening??!!” more than once, via email, text, and in person.
Surprisingly, there’s a very simple explanation.
They’re just not what you think.
