The “Brexit vote” that’s rattled traders is approaching this Thursday, and Keith has followed the IMF’s latest electoral push to uncover exactly where the money is.
I get one question more than any other at the moment…
…XYZ has already had a huge run up – should I buy it?
The fear, of course, is that the stock they want to buy has already had a huge run up and is going to tank immediately after they plunk down their money. I know – I’ve thought the same thing plenty of times over the years, too.
It’s easy to think that many “expensive” stocks are going to roll over given that today’s dismal headlines range from the unimaginably mundane to the truly horrific.
But that’d be a very expensive mistake.
What most investors fail to understand is that there are still fabulous companies out there with equally unimaginable potential to make you a ton of money.
Even though they’ve already had a 1,000%+ run.
Contrary to what most investors think, you haven’t missed a thing if you know what to look for.

Keith appeared on FOX Business’ Varney & Co. to discuss the resiliency of the American people and stock markets in the wake of the tragic attack in an Orlando nightclub this past weekend. War, Terrorism & Ugliness is unfortunately a growth industry – here’s what it will mean for investors as markets adjust to this reality.
The now-legendary George Soros made his mark on history by “breaking” the Bank of England and walking away with a cool $1.5 billion dollars as a hard-nosed hedge fund trader back in September 1992.
He did it by shorting the sterling pound in a move that ultimately cost the U.K. treasury more than £3.4 billion and threw global markets into complete chaos. But that’s nothing compared to the situation this time around and the opportunity we have on our hands.
This time, the Bank of England is about to break itself.
Here’s how to position your money to take advantage of the situation.

Apple’s a long ways from its all-time high of $133/share – but that’s because the vast majority of investors don’t realize what CEO Tim Cook is doing. Apple’s no longer just a device-driven company – and in a matter of months, Wall Street won’t be able to ignore that fact.
Activist Kenny Bruno thinks he has a plan to destroy Exxon.
In a January 2016 meeting attended by fellow activists and heavyweight trial lawyers like Matt Pawa, who last year extracted a $236 million verdict from the oil giant, the veteran environmental crusader laid out his precisely-crafted mission to starve the $365 billion company of resources, influence, and ultimately, any meaningful hope for profits.
Millions of investors are understandably shaken and left wondering if they should bail under the circumstances. Many already have, judging from the fact that Exxon stock is down 15% from its June 2014 peak of $103.83.
I can’t think of a bigger mistake.
The last time we saw this script it led to returns of at least 273% for savvy investors who followed along.
The opportunity could be even bigger this time around.
Friday’s jobs report was terrible, to put it simply. But there’s a statistic that’s far more ominous than the meager 38,000 jobs created nationwide for the month of May – and the “part-timeification” of America’s economy could pick up speed as a result.

I just about fell out of bed this morning when I rolled over to scan the first of hundreds of headlines I look at when my day starts, and saw this from IBTimes:
…”Hope Is Not A Strategy” For Twitter
Not that I’m surprised somebody else finally caught on and called the one-time media darling for what it is, only that it’s taken so long for everybody to glom on to what we’ve been discussing since the company IPO’d, in 2013… and used almost the exact language I have to describe the situation since.
But, there’s something else you should know.
It’s a shocking “secret” that most investors will never understand: the numbers have never lied, and when it comes to much bally-hooed companies like Twitter, they never do.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today.
As always, I’m going to give you a viable alternative and suggestions on the tactics you need to make the jump.

Macy’s, Kohl’s, Target, J.C. Penny’s… the once-proud retailers are all down double-digits from a year ago, including a 53% slump for Macy’s. Here’s Keith Fitz-Gerald on why the investor panic in the retail sector is NOT a buying opportunity.
I promised to keep you ahead of the curve when I started Total Wealth – and certainly ahead of Wall Street.
Frankly, it’s why you’re here, and I take that responsibility very, very seriously. We’ve had a great run together and it’s something I hope to continue for years to come.
Some opportunities represent big sweeping changes in the global environment. Those are typically oriented around our Unstoppable Trends.
For example, I helped readers beat legendary trader George Soros, David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital, and Kyle Bass’s Hayman Capital Management, LP to a trade against the yen by a full eight months back in 2013, more than doubling the returns that hedge fund heavyweights used to net at least $1 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Other profitable plays I share with you are driven by a mix of tactics and headlines.
For instance, I led readers to Raytheon Co. (NYSE:RTN), and to specialized defense contractors a full year before they became a hot trade in the mainstream press. Anybody following along had the opportunity to capture triple-digit gains.
But occasionally there are trades that are so far off the radar that almost nobody but us sees ’em coming.
And that’s precisely what I’ve got on tap for you today.
Once again we’re in great company, with even greater profit potential.

Markets have been surprisingly ho-hum for the “black swan event” in politics that represents Donald Trump’s rise – but not for much longer. Here’s Keith on why markets could take a turn almost no one’s predicting.

Reports are out that Warren Buffett is backing a bid to buy out Yahoo! The rumors come on the heels of Buffett’s billion-dollar bet on Apple – but he’d be making the two forays for entirely different reasons. Here’s Keith on what could really be driving Buffett when it comes to Yahoo!.

Swinging markets are producing clear winners and losers, but investors who recognize the macro trends can still come out on top
