Pessimists rarely make money because they’re focused on headlines that reflect the past. Savvy investors, on the other hand, often laugh all the way to the bank because they focus on the future. The future is ALL that matters when it comes to big profits. Proper risk management is for everything else. Worrying about whether the markets are going to go up, down, or even sideways is a fool’s errand. And, about as effective as driving down the road using your rearview mirrors. Click here to watch.
I’m still at home recovering from my own medical misadventures last week and, before we go any further, let me say, thank you for the many emails, calls, and messages I’ve received. They are tremendously appreciated, and have made an otherwise tough time a lot better!
Anyway, enough about that, but speaking of which…perhaps I should go to the hospital more often!
The Dow tacked on a stunning 700+ points in the first three days of the week and is up again as I record this. Anybody who was not “in to win” like we are (and like we’ve talked about repeatedly in recent weeks), is now losing…. and, badly at that.
For most investors, the relationship between investing and profits seems simple enough. You buy low, sell high, and your portfolio grows – or so goes the story.
In reality, success ultimately comes down to defeating something called “Gambler’s Ruin.”
We’re going to talk about that today – what it is, what it means for your money and, most importantly, how to beat it.
It’s a column you won’t want to miss because it’ll give you an edge other investors would pay dearly to have. Not one in 250,000 understands it.
The difference between heartache and success comes down to this concept.
Most investors have never heard of “Gambler’s Ruin,” but understanding its implications can make the difference between heartache and success in the stock market, especially now.

You have to have a thick skin in this business when you stand on your convictions.
And, no surprise, I live by that principle.
What you see is what you get with me, especially when it comes to sticking with new trends that can make you a ton of money when they happen.
Over the years, I’ve made some whoppers…
… The rise of the Japanese yen, beating legendary trader George Soros to the punch by six months and doubling what the Wall Street Journal said the returns were – nearly $1 billion in three months – for his hedge fund followers
… The Chinese would acquire one or more automakers, specifically Hummer and Volvo… both of which happened
… The rise of the prisoner’s dilemma – which we now understand as the U.S.-China trade war
… The fall of Sears Holdings Corp. (OTC:SHLD) in 2012 when I called it the stock to avoid
… The rally when President Trump won the election, before the votes were even cast…
… When it was trading at $350, I told you Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) was on its way to sub-$200 – it’s there now, and going lower (I expect it to get down to $50)…
My point is not that I’m correct all the time – because I’m not. But, for whatever reason, we seem to get the big picture right, and that’s how the members of the Total Wealth Family do so well for themselves, if they’re following along as directed.

Keith is traveling this week, and we wanted to share this video with you.
During the Las Vegas MoneyShow a little over two weeks ago, he joined a panel beside American economist Mark Skousen, CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. Peter Schiff, and Reaves Asset Management institutional seller Thomas Grimes.
The topic is “where to invest next“… so they discuss current market conditions, interest rates, the best place to put your money right now, and much, much more.

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said, “good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.”
Adored during the 1930s, I can only wonder what he’d say today.
History rarely works out as expected, especially when it comes to the perspective you need to profit from it. Society, of course, doesn’t think this way, which is why our lives are filled with information “everybody” knows is true – but really isn’t.
I’ve talked with tens of thousands of investors over the years, and almost to a person, they’re convinced that building wealth is a complicated, difficult undertaking.
Not the way I see it.
In reality the biggest challenge isn’t investing itself.
And, specifically, the lies we tell ourselves about money.
Learn to get around those, and making money becomes easy. Racking up huge profits becomes fun. Retirement becomes – dare I say it – something you enjoy.

Markets open higher this morning at the tail end of a rough, tariff-ridden May. Host Charles Payne says traders have probably been selling, building up cash, and planning to buy the dip. But now that the markets are up… is it too late to buy in? Or could it actually be too early? Keith says no – “not at all” – for either. And, he adds that this company looks particularly appealing right now… Click here to watch.
Today, I want to talk about concentration. That may strike you as odd, but there is a direct and very profitable link to investing success. You see, we live in an age where we are bombarded by information. Data varies, but some say the average person sees 5,000 to 10,000 ads a day. When I was growing up, that figure was under 100. The internet in all its guises has made the problem worse, especially when it comes to money. Fortunately, there is a solution if you think like a “contrarian.” Click here to watch.

We’ve been led to believe that the multi-tasking that comes with so much information is good for us, but studies like those from Stanford University’s Communication Between Humans and Interactive Media Lab show that it’s actually terrible.

Millions of investors are complaining about the overwhelmingly negative impact that trade war tantrums are having on their portfolios. Yet, very few do anything about it. Not that they don’t want to, mind you. They can’t. The digital world we …
Most Americans have never thought twice about intellectual property. But they should.
The US Patent & Trade Office estimates that the intellectual property associated with 81 industries added $6.6 trillion to global GDP in 2014, the last year there’s data. That same year, IP-intensive industries accounted for a staggering 38% of U.S. GDP, a figure that may approach 50% today thanks to the speed at which technology is advancing.
Our nation depends on it.
Keith isn’t mincing words when he chimes in on Varney & Co. with what Alphabet Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOGL)’s latest move means for the beleaguered Chinese telecom giant. Plus, his thoughts on Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) and what today’s selloff really signals for savvy investors. Click here to watch.

I got an interesting question earlier this week while in Las Vegas where I was speaking at the MoneyShow… what works best right now?
Usually, that’s a question related to which specific stocks, bonds, ETFs or other funds you want to buy. But in this case, the person asking wanted to know what kinds of investment methods work best given current market conditions and how you adjust to all the volatility gumming up the works.
That’s a savvy question, especially since there’s a very counter-intuitive answer.
Asking which stocks are “best” is only half the battle when it comes to big profits. To really hit the home runs you and I both know are out there, you’ve got to know which methods work best and when to use them.
Right now, for example, the markets are completely dominated by tweet-driven trading. This favors day traders and the institutional big boys because it caters to the short-term trading methods they use.
