    Before You Sell Amazon or Short It, Read This First

    Noted investor Doug Kass made headlines Friday claiming that “Washington” has begun antitrust talks on Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) and, not surprisingly, I got a blizzard of emails from anxious investors asking if they should be selling or even shorting Amazon, too. To which I have but one reply… …not unless you like handing over your money to line someone else’s

    Where the Best Earnings Will Come From

    With earnings season starting, the question on everyone's mind is: will companies be able to repeat the great results they posted last time? As Keith points out, that's likely to happen for three particular sectors - regardless of the drama coming out of Washington, D.C.

    Make Any Investment Risk “Free” in One Move

    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. That said, there is one way you can make any investment risk "free" under the right set of circumstances, by using one of my favorite Total Wealth tactics: the free trade. The concept of a

    How to Retire at 60: Your Two-Part Action Plan

    More than 50% of Americans age 35 to 54 have less than $10,000 saved for retirement, according to Time. How we got to this point over the last 15 years is hardly surprising. Many investors watched helplessly as their 401(k)s became "201(k)s" during the Financial Crisis... for the second time in a decade. Generation X-ers were particularly hard hit, losing roughly 45% of their average net

    Back to the Basics: Dollar-Cost Averaging & Value Cost Averaging

    Millions of investors are familiar with the concept of "dollar-cost averaging" - meaning that they buy a fixed dollar amount of something regularly over time regardless of share price. Today I want to share a Total Wealth Tactic that can help you build bigger profits faster. In case you are not familiar with the term "dollar-cost averaging," it's simply a means of accumulating investment

    Use This Tool and Never be Surprised by a Correction Again

    Many investors try to time the markets despite overwhelming evidence that doing so is a fool's errand. I totally get where they're coming from. The idea of picking market tops and bottoms is very seductive, but they may as well be trying to catch falling knives. According to Nobel Laureate William Sharpe, the average investor would have to be right a staggering 82% of the time just to

    These Two REITs Can Be Safer than Bonds When Rates Are Rising

    I'm getting a lot of questions about real estate right now and, specifically, about whether REITs are as "bad" as many investors think when rates are rising. Nope. In fact, the right REITs can be better, safer and potential far more lucrative as interest rates increase. Including the two I'd like to share with you today. Many investors believe that rising rates are bad for real estate

    Get on Board or Get Left Behind

    On the surface, economic metrics are looking down, but remember - as Keith explains to the panel - "government statistics are more cooked than a Christmas goose." A quick look at companies shows that revenues and earnings (the real signs of a healthy economy) are both increasing. That's caught traders' attentions - and means opportunities for you, too.

    How Uber’s Disaster Impacts Your Portfolio

    Many investors think that what's happening with Uber can't or won't impact their portfolio because it's a private company. Think again. Uber's ongoing train wreck will have a material impact on your money in ways that most investors won't expect. Especially when it comes to my favorite subject. Profits. What's happening with Uber is pretty straightforward, and proof positive that

    Why Uber’s Self-Destruction Could Be an Opportunity

    Uber has been one of the most disruptive companies to burst onto the global scene, but most recently it's been plagued by lawsuits, political strife, and now the resignation of CEO Travis Kalanick. Now, Uber's just a bug in search of a windshield, and these events have just set the stage for a second-tier competitor to come in and dominate the scene. As Keith tells host Stuart Varney, "You can't just be disruptive and profitable -- you've got to be disruptive, profitable, and understand how to run a real company."

    Can Anything Stop These Markets?

    The three major indexes opened higher this morning, continuing the market’s upward momentum and pushing the Dow to yet another all-time high. As Keith points out to the panel, “Don’t forget why the markets go higher… because people want to tap into growth, growth drives prices, prices drive earnings, and earnings drive your investments.” Get rid of the emotion, and it becomes a simple equation.

    Your Mid-Year Review (and The Tactics You’ll Need to Set Up for Profits in 2018)

    For the last 100 years, investing in America frequently meant doing a little research, and then calling your broker to buy. Armed with a modicum of knowledge and data, yesterday's investors would often "set it and forget it" when it came to their financial future in a process euphemistically called "buy and hold." Problem is, "buy and hold" is a marketing gimmick - not an investment strategy.

    Your Mid-Year Review

    Most investors think that the time to begin planning for the tail end of the year is in August, when traders return from their vacations and get back to business... But actually, the best time to begin planning ahead is... now. While you have the opportunity to protect yourself and CASH IN before it's too late to change course. Now, I've just come off from the television studio where I
