You’ll notice something different in today’s BS.H.
I’m in Baltimore – finishing up some exciting research, which you’ll hear about in the coming days.
But in the meantime, I want you to focus on four plays to make before kicking back for the holiday weekend.
Let me make it really simple for you…
You should be more afraid of missing the continuing bull market in stocks than of a little (or a lot) of inflation.
Inflation speculation is dominating the news. And it’s here. That’s not something I think, it’s something I know. You know it, too. And you know that more is coming
But the U.S. Federal Reserve can’t say that. In fact, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s been saying the inflation we’re seeing is “transitory” and that after supply-chain issues are resolved – and plants and producers get back into gear – supply will catch up with demand and inflation will disappear.
Don’t buy that inflated pipedream.
Inflation will rise; but the Fed also, despite what everyone else is saying right now, won’t start using quick and steep rate brakes.
You know why?
Because they can’t.
And if you listen to the media here, you’ll miss out on a huge leg up in the markets this summer.
Here’s what’s really going on, why the central bank chairman is saying what he’s saying, why some Fed Regional Bank presidents are saying something else, exactly what the Fed’s going to do, and most importantly, why you should pay attention to that fear-of-missing-out (FOMO) feeling in your gut.…

Total Wealth is Shah Gilani’s three-times-a-week newsletter where he shows you how Wall Street’s high-stakes game is really played – and how to win it. Whether you’ve been trading for a week or several years, chances are you’ve found yourself …
This week, I’ve got a stellar buy for you up my sleeve. Not only would buying this retailer get you in on the ground floor of a new upstart primed for success, it will also line you up to profit on what could be another short-squeeze.
30% of this stock’s floating shares have be shorted… and that spells opportunity for you and me.
Just click the video below to learn more.
I got some incredible submissions you wanted me to comment on in this week’s BS.H. Keep them coming and drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great weekend, folks.
When Robinhood Markets Inc. launched its trading app back in early 2015, it had a customer “waitlist” of about 700,000 investors.
It had a user list of 10 million in 2019, 13 million last year, and an estimated 20 million in January when the zero-commission-trading pioneer found itself at the center of Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets (WSB) battle against big hedge funds.
Last August, Charles Schwab had 12.5 million active accounts – making it the biggest discount broker in America. By the end of February – after the WSB GameStop (NYSE:GME) short squeeze stunned investors – that number had nearly tripled to 30 million. That’s a 140% increase in active users in just seven months.
Take the time to tally the user accounts at the top six brokerages and you’ll discover there are more than 100 million active retail traders – enough to change the way the stock market functions.
Enough to start a revolution.
But every revolution needs a spark, an ignitor to set it off.
And that spark was something the “experts” refer to as “micro-investing” or “slices” (in fact¸ you may even have seen the “slices” TV ad campaign where Schwab tells you to “own your tomorrow.”)
But I see something bigger… They’re not “slices” or “micro-investments.” They’re fractional shares.
Welcome to the “Fractional Shares Revolution.”
Talk about bringing power to the people.
It’s a way to invest in a stock like Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) – recent price $650 a share – for the price of a Big Mac, a Starbucks Latte, or a tank of gas.
More important, this fractional-shares strategy is a starting point … a way of mobilizing you.
It’s a path that starts with a few dollars. And if keep snagging those fractional shares, even with spare change, it can end wherever you want – with tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even a million dollars of your own.
In this special report, I’m going to tell you why this is truly a “revolution.” I’m going to demonstrate how a fractional-share strategy can work. And I’m going to give you the “Seven Fractional Shares to Buy Now.”
Buy them. Add to your positions as you see fit.
And watch your wealth grow.
If I were starting my investing career today and I was working with small $100 installments, one of the first stocks I would buy would be Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A).
As I write this, a single share of BRK-A is trading at an astronomical $418,484.00.

You need to get this Mexican stock off your portfolio. The stock is sinking, but you don’t have to go down with the ship.
In today’s BS.H, I take a dive into three other All-American stocks that could take your portfolio to the moon – including a fast-growing semiconductor developer. Those semiconductor chips are in high demand and with supply chains coming back online… Well, this stock won’t be trading at a discount for much longer.
Here’s a bit of “investing trivia” that will grab your attention: If you look at the 50 biggest winners of the last decade, 39 of them started out as small- to mid-cap stock plays.
And quite a few of them were also low-priced (as in cheap) stocks – stocks trading at $10 a share, $5 a share … or even less.
One of my all-time favorite examples of a cheap-stock winner is a company called LendingTree Inc. (NasdaqGS:TREE) – the fintech leader that’s pretty much a household name these days. We’re talking about a company that recently sported a $3 billion market value and a stock price up around $220 a share.
Impressive stuff, right?
But there was also a time when LendingTree had a minuscule market value of $60 million – and a stock that was languishing down around $5.50 a share.
From that point to today, we’re talking about a total return of about 3,800%.
That’s a gain anyone – and I mean anyone – would be thrilled to pull down.
String a few of those 20X and 30X windfalls together … and that’s how you get rich.
The issue, of course, is that this cheap-stock-climb-to-the-peak-of-Mt.-Everest takes time to play out. And stocks, like mountain climbers, periodically stop to “rest” – meaning you’re not making any progress.
What if there was a way to get “paid” for owning that low-priced stock – so that you’re getting a steady, predictable stream of cash at every point along the journey?
That scenario not only sounds great – it’s actually doable.
Indeed, that’s the “ultimate cheap stock” – one with a super-low price, a hefty long-term upside … and an income stream attached.
That’s exactly what we have for you here today: A stock with 10-bagger potential – courtesy of the sizzling housing market – and one that will pay you to own it.
We’ve all heard the old maxim that “it takes money to make money” – which is certainly true.
But retail investors have another version of this adage – “It takes big money to make money” – a frustrating version that teases the promise of big fortunes … but keeps that wealth just out of reach.
I’m here to tell you that this “obstacle” no longer exists.
Great fortunes are attainable – for anyone. And that journey can start with any amount of money – even as little as $100 … or even $50.
Thanks to the advent of commission-free trading and the ability to buy “fractional shares” through companies like Robinhood or Charles Schwab, there’s been a revolution in the stock market – and retail investors are the big winners. These changes make it possible – and affordable – to buy small slices (fractional shares) of an individual stock – no matter how expensive its trading price.
Here’s why I’m telling you this.
Starting today, Total Wealth is going to make you part of this revolution. Each week, we’re going to spotlight the best places to take the extra $100, $250, or $500 you may have – and put it to work.
Reddit is still on the prowl for stocks to squeeze, and I’ve spotted one with 39% of its floating shares shorted…
All I have to say is that Varney & Co.didn’t dub me the “man who calls it all” for nothing. This meme stock is about to be taken on a ride and you’ll want to be on it.
But that’s not the only thing on the agenda in this week’s BS.H. I’ve got four buys for you today and a neat trick for those of you who want a little more security in the markets.
So get out a pen and click the video below to get started.
The Taxman is coming, and he is hungry.
U.S. President Joe Biden and his gang of big government associates have unveiled a budget that comes in at a whopping $6 trillion. There something for everybody in this package – with tax credits, giveaways, and government programs of all shapes and sizes.
This Biden Bacchanalia would make Franklin “The New Deal” Roosevelt and Lyndon “The Great Society” Johnson flush with envy. President Biden is laying out one of the most “progressive” budgets anyone has seen since the 1960s. Even Jimmy Carter couldn’t have dreamt all this up.
Want some examples? I’m talking about:
- Free school for some folks from pre-school up through college.
- Two years of community college is free for everybody.
- A full $1 billion increase in food stamps.
- Massive tax breaks for electric vehicles.
- Big bucks for renewable energy.
- And yet another infusion for healthcare.
Nothing comes for free. And that includes the Biden spending plan, which creates a deficit of $1.8 trillion this year and $1.3 trillion a year over the next 10 years – resulting in a national debt of $39 trillion (117% of projected GDP) by 2031.
Here’s the problem.
Somebody will have to pay for all this.
That “somebody” is you and me.
And those payments can be made only one way – through higher taxes.
Ruthlessly higher taxes.
Welcome to the “Biden Tax Bite.”
And there’s only one way to beat it – by getting out in front of it.
In this edition of BS.H, I cover an industry giant that is a screaming buy – a must-have for any portfolio. This powerhouse stock could hit $300 per share in the next 18 months, so you’re going to want to buy in now while it’s trading at a massive discount.
I also included a special treat – an energy stock with a 5.83% dividend payout.

Jun 03, 2021
Initial public offerings (IPOs) are always one of the hottest areas of the stock market – and attract the ardor of investors and traders, alike.
One brand-new IPO received an even-greater-than-usual amount of attention – because it was the first to debut on the Robinhood trading platform.
Total Wealth’s Shah Gilani has been watching the company – and the deal – and gave us a great analysis ahead of its debut last week.
Today, on the one-week anniversary of the stock’s debut on the Big Board, Shah looks at the deal again, tells us what comes next – and tells you how to trade it.
Today’s BS.H is a mixed bag. Plenty of strong buys and trade opportunities to carry you through the long weekend from the tech, entertainment, and energy sectors.
But I also got questions about a stock you should NEVER touch. It’s stocks like this that really show that you shouldn’t always “buy the dip.” Make sure you sell this stock before it shows you its true colors.

Have a great weekend,
In yesterday’s Total Wealth, I told you all about the risks of “Toxic Stocks” – the flawed, overvalued, ready-to-plunge shares that can eviscerate your portfolio.
I even detailed seven “signs” that you might own one of these toxic plays, which you can read more about by clicking here.
But I also made a promise.
I told you I’d circle back with an example of each of these “toxic types.”
Today I’m doing exactly that: We’ve brought you a list of seven “toxic stocks” that aren’t worth holding.
