    Here’s Why the Market “Meltdown” Isn’t Very Concerning

    Each of the major indices close after a “meltdown” today, on the back of renewed trade tensions between the U.S. and China. Keith joins Cheddar.com shortly after the closing bell to let you in on what exactly happened, why he’s not very concerned, and why you shouldn’t be either. Plus, he doesn’t mince words when it comes not only to Lyft Inc. (NasdaqGS:LYFT) and their earnings coming across the screen during the appearance, but most of the other IPOs set to go public this year. Click here to watch.

    Even If the Markets Are Down, These Four Companies Could Help Protect – AND Grow – Your Money

    Keith makes an appearance on Varney & Co. this morning, before and after the opening bell. The appearance is on the back of President Trump’s tweet that U.S.-China trade talks are moving “too slowly” – so the 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods will move to 25% on Friday. The Dow opened nearly 400 points lower, and the big question now is: is this actually a buying opportunity? Keith says that it is… but only selectively. There are four companies you need to be looking for right now. Plus, what could happen to the markets if there isn’t a U.S.-China deal and what you need to be thinking about for Uber’s IPO on Friday.

    This Week’s “Burn Off” Means You Need to Focus on One Thing for Potential Profits Ahead


    Good morning from the far reaches of the coastal Northwest where Noriko and I are enjoying a little island hopping.

    The weather and the ride have both been spectacular. And, most importantly, so has everyone we’ve met along the way.

    I think that’s an important testament to who we are as a people. Optimism still prevails, despite the overwhelming clash of negative headlines, finger pointing, and bitter political divide.

    Speaking of which, now’s the time to keep your wits about you. This week’s volatility is trader “burn off” because they didn’t get the lower rates from Fed Chairman Powell they’d hoped for.

    The best companies are still making plenty of money, and that’s what you want to focus on. Risk management is for everything else.

    And, unlike the majority of investors who are flying blind, we’ve got that covered.

    I’ll be back next week and look forward to touching base.

    Have a super weekend!

    Invest in Optimism: A Conversation with Keith Fitz-Gerald: Part II

    Editor’s Note: Hi there! As mentioned on Wednesday, last week, Keith sat down for an exclusive interview with Frank Holmes, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of U.S. Global Investors. Below is part two of the interview. The original text of which first appeared on U.S. Global Investors on April 24, 2019, which you can view by clicking here.

    Frank Holmes: You’re known for the 50-40-10 portfolio, among other things. Describe that for us.

    KFG: Thanks for pointing that out. Let me start by saying that conventional thinking about diversification is, I believe, badly flawed. The theory is a lot like throwing spaghetti against a wall and seeing what sticks. The proposition is that you have lots of great stocks that don’t go up and down at the same time, but the reality is that it’s more like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic in today’s highly computerized markets, when correlation is higher than it’s been at any point in financial history.

    If you want to get ahead and diversify your portfolio, the irony is that you don’t spread it all over. You don’t, for example, see buildings named after “diversifiers,” but you do see ’em named after people who have made a boatload by taking well-reasoned, calculated risks. If you can do that, the returns-the giant profits, really-will come.

    In the midst of earnings season and the markets ticking higher and higher, Keith makes an appearance on Varney & Co. to discuss the number one question millions are wondering: profits are driving the rally, so are we in a “melt-up”?

    Earnings Update – What to Buy and What to Avoid this Week

    If you’re uncertain about the investments you’ve purchased, not confident in what happens next, or if you’re simply not clear on how to make money in the markets, you’re gonna want to read today’s email.

    Millions of folks were led to believe that earnings would stink this quarter, and that they’d be down a staggering 15.1% to an average negative 2%, the largest such decline in the five-year, ten-year, and fifteen-year averages.

    Yet, that’s not happening.

    The latest FactSet data show 78% of the S&P 500 companies reporting this quarter to date have reported positive earnings per share surprises while 53% have reported a positive revenue surprise.

    Growth is averaging a positive 5-6% and the S&P 500 is within spitting distance of new, all-time highs.

    Here’s how to cash in.

    This Fatally Flawed Narrative Could Be Costing You Thousands Each Year

    I’ve got to be honest.

    Wall Street is feeding you a fatally flawed narrative when it comes to financial planning.

    They make the assumption that you’re going to live this way or that and, in doing so, produce a whole bunch of fancy calculations intended to show you how much you need to save to meet their projections.

    The hope is, of course, that you’ll become a valuable client – meaning you’re going to generate tons in commissions to line their pockets for having prepared a deep look into your financial affairs.

    The reality is very different. Those same fancy-pants charts – which, by the way, can cost you a “planning fee” ranging from $100 to several thousand dollars – usually have the opposite effect. People realize they’re so far from meeting their “goals” that they give up without even trying.

    I’ve never liked that but, then again, I’ve never played by the rules either.

    Here’s why and what you can do immediately to sidestep this flawed logic.
