The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA)’s stock has gotten a $26.6 billion buzzcut since Sunday’s 737 Max 8 crash, and more than a dozen countries have now ordered the jets taken out of service. What’s more, in a stunning about-face, President Trump has ordered all 737 Max 8 and 737 Max 9 grounded.
Millions of investors are wondering what to do next and you’re not alone if you’re one of ’em.
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 want every investor who reads it to have a fighting chance in the months ahead, at a time when the headlines are hopelessly negative and running for the hills seems like a prudent thing to do.
Not 1 in 1 million investors will come to terms with today’s message, which is too bad, considering how much wealth will be created by those few – like you – who do.

There’s a lot of discussion at the moment about which way the markets are going to go from here. Some of it’s good, but frankly, a lot of it’s bad.
Like that’s a shock!!??
The media loves negative stories because that’s how they keep you hooked and emotionally off-guard. Wall Street, of course, plays along because they know negative headlines make it easier to separate you from your retirement.
The other thing to think about is that they’re playing “catch up,” whereas we’re often months ahead of developments they’re only just getting around to reporting.
Like for example, the possibility of short-term market turbulence but higher prices ahead… that’s the latest from Wells Fargo’s Christopher Harvey who’s a noted bear and seconded by Merrill Lynch’s Stephen Suttmeier – both as reported by CNBC earlier this week. Or Bloomberg’s report that JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa now considers the $6 target he’s got on General Electric Co. (NYSE:GE) to be “generous.”
Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL)’s pivot, meanwhile, is beginning to draw attention for the reasons we laid out more than a year ago when I first told you about why services could double that stock’s value. Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA)’s in trouble…
You get the idea.
Anyway, the reason I am bringing all this up is not to take a victory lap.
There are four big profit-robbing mistakes investors are making at the moment – and want to make sure you’re not among ’em.

Many investors think of investing as something very difficult… something like a wild ride.
Only it doesn’t have to be that way.
Investing can and should be a smooth process.
I know the headlines are challenging.
Just this past week, for example, we’ve had the President meeting with North Korean’s Kim Jong Un in Vietnam, more stuff to digest on the Chinese trade talks, Fed Chair Jerome Powell on Capitol Hill, and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen speaking to the House Committee.
And that’s not even including earnings which continue to be firmly split between companies with the pricing power needed to maintain profits and those that don’t have it!!
Still, the big stuff is important. I don’t want to make light of the concerns you and I have about the world we live in and how those things impact our money.
Here’s the thing.
You cannot invest blindly any more than you can drive down the street with your eyes closed.
I use big picture headlines as a frame of reference. Nothing more than that.
I want to know how, why, and when they’ll impact the financial strategies I use to uncover and share the world’s best investment opportunities with you.
And, I ask three simple and very powerful questions that help me make that determination.
Here’s what they are:
Feb 23, 2019
Bull or bear?
I’m asked frequently about which way the market is headed next.
Frankly, I could make the case for either in a New York Minute.
But, here’s the thing.
Bull or bear really doesn’t matter… being profitable does.
You can make money no matter which way the markets are moving, as long as they’re moving.
The key, as always and of course, is making sure your money is lined up with the biggest, best, and most powerful undercurrents… the stuff you see on “page 12,” not “page 1” – meaning in the headlines.
That’s not always easy to do…
… unless you know what to look for.

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.
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.
Conventional wisdom holds that Wall Street is rigged to favor the big traders, and that you’ll never win.
The implication, of course, is why even try?
I’ve never believed that, and you shouldn’t either.
In reality, there are plenty of savvy investors who beat Wall Street at its own game consistently, including Sir John Templeton, the legendary Jim Rogers, Stanley Druckenmiller, and Warren Buffett, just to name a few.
I want YOU to be one of ’em.
When I started Total Wealth, I made you a promise that we were not only going to cover the events of the day and the opportunities they create, but also the specific tactics you need to maximize profits and build Total Wealth.
Today I want to keep that promise with a look at the single most powerful Total Wealth Tactic of all.
It’s simple, easy to use, and takes only an extra second or two to put in place.
Before I tell you what it is, though, I want to tell you why it works…
- …because the tactic I’m going to share with you today puts YOU in control.
I know that’s hard to imagine given that you’re trading against the likes of Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, and other firms with billions of dollars, but it’s absolutely true.
Moreover, it doesn’t cost a penny, can save you money, and can dramatically increase your odds of success.
Get this right and you’re immediately in command of your own financial destiny.
I’ve made no bones about my feelings when it comes to quantitative easing, or “QE” for short.
Plainly put, QE violates the very principles of capitalism – namely that there is success and failure- and it’s akin to monetary drunk driving. Rather than letting dead companies die, the Fed has created legions of financial zombies that will ultimately come back to bite everybody in the rear end.
Still, I’m glad to have the Fed’s meddling for one reason and one reason only – because learning to harness QE can be one of the most profitable Total Wealth Tactics of all.
Especially when it comes to finding companies like we did recently in our sister publication, the Money Map Report and right here in Total Wealth.
The first was a relatively unknown biotech firm that popped more than 50% in just eight short weeks while the latter was none other than the Williams Co Inc. (NYSE:WMB), which has returned a slightly lower but still impressive 41.9% since January.
Today I want to share two more companies with you that are poised for exactly the same sort of take-off under very similar circumstances.
You’ve got to act quickly, however. That’s because the window of opportunity will close with a thud when the first whiff of a rate hike hits.
Here’s how to profit from the Fed’s actions.
