    How to Profit If Starbucks “Hates” In-Store Customers Like Me

    Like millions of Seattleites, I’ve cheered Starbucks Inc. (NasdaqGS:SBUX) on for years.

    I’ve watched, cheered, and consumed my fair share of coffee as the company’s grown from the one-room grinding shop where it started in the Pike Place Market to the worldwide brand it is today. And, in return, I’ve always felt that the company valued my business.

    No longer.

    In fact, I think there’s a good case to be made that Starbucks “hates” in-store customers like me.

    That’ll be bad for unsuspecting stockholders who get caught mid-latte, but great for savvy investors who line up big profits as the price of Starbucks’ shares falls.

    Let’s talk about how to line up big profits now as Starbucks loses its buzz

    Good Thing MONEY is a Lot More Profitable (And Fun to Talk About)

    The news cycle is overwhelmingly negative at the moment and I’m hearing from a lot of people who fear that the worst is ahead. You’re not alone if you’re among them!

    In fact, I feel the angst, too and that makes me GLAD that we don’t do politics around here… that we deal with MONEY.

    It’s simpler.

    It’s far more profitable.

    And, it’s fun… or at least it should be anyway.

    I mean really… how many more headlines can we hear about impeaching the President, about the trade war, about the war on success … before we all go numb … nor nuts???!!!

    I think a good chunk of the world is there now, frankly.

    Money is a different animal, though.

    No matter how bad things get, no matter how atrocious the headlines become, no matter how disgusting the political vitriol will get … money will always be on the move.

    And that means profits are, too

    This One Tool Made the Difference Between Bankruptcy and $13 Million

    The worst manufacturing numbers in a decade remind me of an old joke that’s made its way around financial circles over the years. It goes something like this:

    An investment banker walks into a room where his cohorts are in a meeting. “I’ve got good news and bad news,” he announces. “The bad news is, we’ve just lost $100 million. The good news is, it wasn’t ours.” An associate raises his hand. “What was the bad news again?”

    It’s humor, but there’s more than a grain of truth to the story. Whether we’re talking about brokers, bankers, or even your most trusted financial advisor, you cannot rely on anyone else to care about your money and keep it safe.

    At the end of the day, the only thing standing between your portfolio and catastrophic loss is your own caution and proper risk management.

    I know it’s not the most exciting part of investing. But there’s zero doubt in my mind it is the most important.

    That’s why it’s part of the Total Wealth Strategy.

    One tool called position sizing stands out above all others as the most powerful – and not just for cutting risk either, but for boosting your profits, too.

    To see what I mean, consider this anecdote from trading psychologist Dr. Van Tharp:

    “We’ve done many simulated games in which everyone gets the same trades. At the end of the simulation, 100 different people will have 100 different final equities. And after 50 trades, we’ve seen final equities that range from bankrupt to $13 million – yet everyone started with $100,000, and they all got the same trades. Position sizing and individual psychology were the only two factors involved – which shows just how important position sizing really is.”

    Here’s how I recommend you start using it right now

    There is Nothing Wrong With Taking a Little Cash Out if You’re an Older Investor

    If you’re an older investor, and losing sleep over the looks of the stock markets, there’s nothing wrong with grabbing a little bit of your cash. Just beware that missing an opportunity is always more expensive that trying to avoid losses. Click here to watch.

    One Move to Make Any Investment Risk “Free” (and Build Profits Even Faster)

    There’s no way to eliminate risk 100% when it comes to investing.

    I can’t do it. You can’t do it. (And if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, take your money and run.)

    There’s just no such thing.

    Yet, unbeknownst to most investors, there is a way to make any investment risk “free” under the right circumstances using one of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics: the “Free Trade.”

    Not only does this remove risk from your portfolio, but it means you can potentially build profits faster, more consistently, and more securely than you might think.

    Doing so is a critically important concept given current market conditions and a bull market that, as of yesterday is 3,117 days old and has run more than 324.12%+ off March 9, 2009 lows according to Yahoo!Finance using adjusted prices that reflect dividends and reinvestment.

    We’re long overdue for a correction… a correction, I might add, that YOU don’t have to fear if you understand what we’re going to talk about today.

    This is your moment of truth.

    You can read today’s column and bin it, or you can rethink what you know about what it takes to achieve the kind of life-altering profits that make the financial future of your dreams possible.

    Of course, I’m hoping that you’ll choose the latter.

    The rapidly escalating violence in Hong Kong harbors huge hidden risks that are not being reported in Western media as they relate specifically to the next trade tariff talks and the “cost” associated with them. Here’s why.

    Weekend Edition: The ONLY Thing That Matters to the Markets When It Comes to Impeaching Trump

    I think traders sell off ferociously if the impeachment proceedings move beyond fanciful conjecture leading up to the 2020 elections to the possibility of real transgressions. Anything short of that will render them moot, effectively a well-publicized sideshow characterized by unprecedented and exceptionally vicious headlines, name-calling, posturing and finger-pointing – to be clear – from BOTH sides.

    You have to prepare for two things: taking profits AND avoiding losses. I tell my subscribers all of this in our sister research services, Money Map Report and High Velocity Windfalls. You can sign up for both today, if you haven’t already. Click here to watch.

    The ONLY Thing That Matters to the Markets When It Comes to Impeaching Trump

    I have to admit, I wasn’t too surprised that Democratic leaders roiled markets earlier this week when they announced potential impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

    What I worry about is how any impeachment potentially impacts YOUR money.

    I think traders sell off ferociously if the impeachment proceedings move beyond fanciful conjecture leading up to the 2020 elections to the possibility of real transgressions. Anything short of that will render them moot, effectively a well-publicized sideshow characterized by unprecedented and exceptionally vicious headlines, name-calling, posturing and finger-pointing – to be clear – from BOTH sides.

    The single most important thing you can do right now is twofold.

    First, be sure you are constantly focused on protecting your profits and your capital by harvesting winners every time they hit pre-defined profit targets laid out in advance of short-term market movement.

    Second, jettison stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds and any other investment that fails to meet expections or which bumps up against trailing stops you have in place at all time – “just in case.”

    If you are a paid subscriber to any of my sister services, what I’m saying should sound very familiar because we’ve been gradually tightening up both profit targets and trailing stops for months ahead of the possibility of more volatility and short-termism.

    If you’re not a subscriber to those services including specifically, Money Map Report or High Velocity Windfalls, you’re not out of luck.

    Carefully review your holdings – and I mean ALL of ’em – right now with an eye on which ones you’re going to keep, which ones you’re going to sell if the markets force your hand, and, importantly, which ones you’re going to buy more of if the markets give you that opportunity.

    The bull can continue to run – there’s plenty of support for still higher highs ahead – but we have to be prepared for one or more of the herd to step in the you know what in the meantime

    The Markets Care About ONE Thing When It Comes to Impeachment

    The markets have been in a cantankerous mood this week, following revelations that Democrats intend to pursue an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

    Whether that’s right or wrong doesn’t concern me. I don’t have the luxury of picking sides in my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist.

    My job is to help you make money by accurately assessing the situation and what it means for the world’s markets.

    As usual, I guarantee you the answer ISN’T what most people think.

    The Markets Will Regard Impeachment Proceedings as A Non-Event – Unless…

    There’s no question that impeachment proceedings will make headlines daily, if not hourly, in weeks ahead. However, the markets will regard this as a sideshow, unless one specific thing happens. Savvy investors would be wise to prepare now. Click here to watch.

    Five Reasons You STILL Don’t Want to Believe a Perma-Bear

    The markets are flirting with new highs once again and, once again, the perma-bears are out in force.

    I have nothing against them.

    Many, in fact, are exceptionally gifted thinkers.

    But the fact that they’ve been as wrong as the day has been long since… oh, I dunno… March 2009 has got to sting. The S&P 500 has risen 320% since then which is enough to turn every $10,000 invested into $42,300 or more.

    Many of the stocks I’ve recommended have done even better. Apple, for instance, has jumped a staggering 1,630%, Raytheon’s tacked on 416.2% and Alphabet’s up 118.6%, and. That’s enough to turn $10,000 into $173,020… $51,620… even $21,860, respectively.!

    My point?

    Sell if you want but doing so is potentially one of the single worst and most expensive mistakes you’ll ever make unless, of course, you have to (which is another subject for different time).

    And I’m going to prove it to you now.
