No one in the world is safe from rising oil prices.
Recent estimates expect global oil and gas investment to grow to $628 billion by the end of 2022. Investors are scrambling every which way to find the best energy plays before costs really take off – but many are missing a key opportunity one step removed from the oil drillers they love so much.
I’m talking about oil services. Companies that make all the products drillers need to stay afloat. Companies like Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB), a Texas-based oil company.
Unlike exploration companies that drill for oil and sell it into the global market, SLB merely provides the equipment for the drilling operations, which means its performance is less tied to short-term energy prices and more tied to longer-term energy demand.
Microsoft’s plan to drop $69 billion on Activision Blizzard Inc (Nasdaq: ATVI) did everything the company expected… Drummed up considerable excitement for the acquisition, a media frenzy about the price tag, and a flood of investors scrambling to buy shares of ATVI.
But does it really expect the acquisition to go through when an anti-trust crusader leading the Federal Trade Commission is ready to shut it all down?
I think Microsoft (and ATVI investors) are about to get a rude awakening – one that we can ride out to incredible profits with an options play I’m giving you in today’s Buy, Sell, or Hold.
Inflation is hitting everything.
Our wallets. Our bank accounts. And even our stomachs.
I’m sure you’ve seen it. Empty grocery store shelves juxtaposed with rising grocery bills. The tab at your favorite take-out spot or a famous restaurant forcing a double-take…
Prices of almost everything we eat and drink have risen and will continue to rise – but not always for the reasons you think. Some food inflation is being exasperated by food giants looking to turn a profit.
So, in today’s Total Wealth, I’m exploring why this frightening trend is embedded in our future and how exactly you can counter this affront with three new food-stock plays.

Remember when the Fed claimed last year’s inflation was “transitory” and was “only temporary”? How J. Powell must feel now that every other news article is about how it has only gotten worse… But I hope you aren’t bored of …
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (NYSE: TSM), Asia’s most valuable firm and globally the largest contract chipmaker, has made an absurd announcement in its fourth-quarter report.
The company said it expects to increase capital spending to between $40 billion and $44 billion this year. That’s up 33.3% to 46.66% from the $30 billion it spent last year.
That’s a lot of money… But TSM wouldn’t spend unless it saw huge demand for its chips now and in the future.
Lithium, lithium, lithium…
It’s all about lithium right now as demand for electric vehicles soars – and as battery prices climb alongside. Existing supply chains can’t keep up, causing prices to increase five-fold. Last January a ship cost $8,000 a tonne. Now it’s $41,000.
Bad for the car companies. Bad for EV customers.
Years ago, being a hedge fund manager was something worth bragging about – I would know.
Starting in 1983 on the floor of the Chicago Board of Exchange, I ran multiple successful hedge funds, helping clients (and myself) make beaucoup bucks in the stock market. At times, I was outright braggadocios about my successes, like many other hedge fund managers. Some even beat out the yearly gains of the stock market year after year…
But that was ages ago, and hedge funds aren’t bragging anymore.
It’s retail – small traders and investors – that ought to be celebrating success, and I’ve got a new play so you can be celebrating the very same profits.
Over the weekend, I gave you a close look at what to expect out of 2022’s top five money-movers:
- Biden’s regulation army…
- A crypto-crash…
- China’s impending “Lehman-moment” …
- And the perseverance of the retail trader.

Tsk tsk… Last week, it was discovered that Google has been using another company’s patented inventions to build its phones, laptops, and some speakers without permission.
Besides a slap on the wrist and a need to compromise with the smaller company, Google will probably take the scandal in stride – but the California-based wireless speaker company that’s won this court battle against the infamous tech giant is going to see new heights.
Now I understand that this might be a controversial statement, but it’s true nonetheless. Crypto is on its way to ruin and investors unprepared for its downfall could lose everything.
Just like yesterday’s report, this special edition of Total Wealth is designed to prepare you for 2022 and secure 12 more months of profit.
We’re only a week into January, and it’s already been one hell of a year.
These days, you could easily spend $60-$70 just to fill up your car. Inflation continues to threaten the global market as rates rise, and the quantitative easing imposed by the Fed has put no one at ease. The rivalry between China and Taiwan is heating up, with some fearing armed conflict. And then there’s Omicron, which is running rampant around the world.
Happy New Year, indeed.
A dose of hope would do us all some good, so I’m here to provide it with some good news: 2022 is going to be a golden year of opportunity for us, and I’m going to tell you how.
Starting today, you’ll receive my special two-part New Year’s Edition of Total Wealth. I’m taking a look at what 2022 holds for us and our wallets, and let me be the first to tell you that rising inflation, rising debt in China, and rising confidence in the Retail trader will all play directly into our hands.
It’s rare to find a company that manages to check all the wrong boxes.
SoFi Technologies Inc (Nasdaq: SOFI) is sloppy for a company working in the fintech space. Total revenue is a scant $8.7 million and net income across the board is millions in the negative. It is hands down a sell. Get it off your portfolio as fast as you can, unless…
Unless you want to grab a quick profit with this stock and three others using a new technique I teach in today’s Buy, Sell, or Hold.
We are dependent on the cloud for everything. Energy, shipping, farming, entertainment… Any industry you can imagine is in some way reliant on web-enabled tech to function. And crooks know it.
Heck, they’ve known it for years. Cyberattacks that once took place once a year are now happening daily. By some counts, we’re averaging one cyberattack every 39 seconds, crimpling industries, economies, or sometimes countries.
Luckily, the latest member of the Nasdaq 100 is stepping up to the plate to ward off these attackers – and it’s a stellar investment.

To start the New Year off, I’m focusing on two technology companies that have been on everyone’s radar for a while now.
First up is a biotech company that shook 2021 with a breakthrough Alzheimer’s drug.
And the next is one chipmaker still feeling the pinch from a global shortage. Shares are trading at a premium right now, and it’s a great time to jump in.
Either of these two trades has a chance of doubling your money, so let’s get started.
