Micro caps, or petite companies valued at less than $300 million, are becoming all the rage among investors – and I love that. These companies are the underdogs of the investing world that, if played right, can make you a filthy rich once they burst forth their true potential.
That’s why I want to start you off with Surgalign Holdings Inc (SRGA). On August 6, 2021, the spine-related micro-cap medical technology company, reported Q2/2021 results that included total global revenue of $24.8 million, which represented a 21% increase over the same period a year ago. Earnings for the quarter were a $0.09 loss, which was considerably better than estimates that called for a $0.12 loss for the period.
Those aren’t bad numbers, but on the same day shares sold off as much as 18.5% in a single session. Since then, though, the stock has rebounded to the upside, filling that initial gap, and then some.
This morning, the BS.H is getting a refresh. No mixed bags, no wall of worry, just nine straight buys you need in your portfolio ASAP, courtesy of the electrification revolution.
The disaster in Afghanistan.
A surge in the Delta variant – with Lambda right behind.
Economic-growth reports that came in on the “light” side.
Inflation’s return from the dead.
Myriad problems with a root cause in China.
A bond market that’s trying to trick us.
And the list goes on.
For investors like you and me, there sure seems to be a lot to worry about these days.
And new worries seem to surface every week.
But don’t drink the hemlock just yet.
In the face of all those worries, U.S. stocks just keep climbing this so-called “Wall of Worry” – and remain in record territory.
Today I’m going to show you why that’s happening. And I’ll share a “Wall of Worry” stock play that’ll keep climbing, too.
Better still: This stock offers more than one path to a big-payoff destination.
But let’s first understand what the “Wall of Worry” is, why it’s actually a good thing, and the “false narrative” that’s causing the confusion.
Dividend stocks tend to a bad rep for paying “cents on the dollar” back on a bulky investment – but the lunch special I’ve got for you today is of a quality that puts other dividends to shame.

Here’s your latest batch of watch list stocks. First up, I’m watching The Home Depot, Inc. (HD). The company is scheduled to report Q2/2021 results on Tuesday, before the open. The company experienced a surge in sales and earnings since the beginning of the pandemic, but now, both are expected to slow down as stimulus checks dry up, supply chain issues persist, and labor cost continue to rise.
Given those uncertainties, and the fact that the stock is trading near all-time highs, we could see some volatility around earnings. If the company misses on top-line, bottom-line, or if it lowers forward guidance, I like buying a put spread.
If HD closes below $327.00, I like buying the HD September 17, 2021 $325/$320 Put Spread for $2.00 or less.
I’m not usually a penny stocks kind of guy. It’s just not my cup of tea, so to speak. Yet this week, you sent me a psychedelics company that has me reconsidering my position…
After closing on Thursday at $0.032 – that’s right, less than a single cent – this is a strong buy that all of us can have a little fun with. I talk of this and more moneymakers in today’s Buy, Sell, or Hold.

On Monday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which the United Nation’s calls its “body for assessing the science related to climate change,” released its latest report titled, AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Sciences Basis.
AR6, the Panel’s sixth Assessment Report on climate conditions, authored by 234 scientists and researchers, runs 3,949-pages and was so shocking U.N. Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, claimed it represented a “code red for humanity.”
The market’s opening in 30 minutes, so you know what that means – time to get your money ready.
In the video, you’ll find out where you should put $100 during Tuesday’s session.
This week, you flooded my inbox with questions about FLGC cannabis. I completely understand the interest. The cannabis market has grown to be worth nearly one trillion dollars, making it a great market for discerning investors.

I was doing some online shopping recently and, right as I was about to confirm my payment something caught my eye… Next to credit, debit, and PayPal there was a new option asking if I was wanted to pay for my stuff not as a grand total but in small monthly installments.
If you’ve been shopping around like me, you may have seen this, too – spreading across online sellers like wild fire.

Lucid Group (Nasdaq:LCID) started trading last Monday after the electric vehicle (EV) company completed a blank-check merger with Churchill Capital Corp. IV.
As you would expect, there was a lot of hype around this listing, and after the obligatory first-day pop, the stock dropped through the rest of the week.
I like Lucid, as a company. The cars are beautiful, and they represent a potential alternative to Tesla for higher-end buyers. That being said, the company hasn’t delivered a single car.

Robinhood is finally open to public trading after weeks of public interest and speculative articles about who, what, when, and where…
Well now we know – but that doesn’t answer the most important question: is it a buy, sell, or hold?

I’m going to let you in on a little, make that big, secret – one that may actually be an outright stunner to all the trading/investing veterans and newbie retail traders checking this out today.
Here it is: I still love the giant Chinese tech stocks that trade on American exchanges.
More importantly, I believe you can make money on these stocks.
Lots of money – and on the “long” side, no less.
I realize this flies in the face of the conventional wisdom when it comes to U.S.-listed Chinese tech stocks – but it’s what I believe.
There is a “catch” here, however.
You see, there’s only one way to play this – only one strategy that makes perfect sense.
It’s the one way to grab the latest upside I see here, while avoiding the slaughter that will ensue if the escalating U.S.-China spat “goes nuclear” – which it could.
I’m going to show you this “one strategy” for U.S.-listed Chinese tech stocks and EV plays.
And I’m going to tell you everything you need to know…
My inbox has been filled with questions about cryptocurrencies recently, which is great. You should be paying attention to cryptos – the space is catching fire once again as Bitcoin prices rebound back north of $39,000.
But, at least in my opinion, outright buying cryptocurrencies is not the best way to spend your $100 this week. Instead, I’ve got another play for you with just as much potential.
Once again, SPACs seem to be on everyone’s minds… but we have to be careful when picking the cream from the crop. Many of you asked me about a SPAC ETF this week that should not be on your portfolio.
