President Trump’s tariffs have millions of investors on edge. And, rightly so – China will go right for the jugular vein in retaliation by targeting our most valuable companies. However, as Keith points out during an appearance on Trish Regan’s The Intelligence Report, there is one group of people individual investors should watch when it comes to their money and to profitably avoid the sideshow in Washington.

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said that “good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.”
Adored during the 1930s, I can only wonder what he’d say today.
History rarely works out as expected, especially when it comes to the perspective you need to profit from it. Society, of course, doesn’t think this way, which is why our lives are filled with information “everybody” knows is true – but really isn’t.
For example, many people…
… relish privacy and protest vigorously when it’s threatened, yet have voluntarily created the single largest, most accurate, and most valuable marketing databases in mankind’s history using social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
… complain about fake news and free speech because they interfere with the freedom of individual expression, yet support censorship when it comes to views we don’t share ourselves.
… want change yet immediately seek to preserve the status quo when it happens.
… desperately seek big profits yet complain that stocks are expensive.
Dr. Art Markman, professor of Psychology and Marketing at the University of Texas at Austin, says that this is because of the way our brains process, store, and retrieve knowledge.

After last Friday’s monster 400 point run higher, many investors are wondering if the selling is over. Here’s Keith on why you should hope it isn’t… if you’re interested in bigger profits and more gains ahead. Click here to watch…

I told you last year that there were two industries ripe for an “Amazon-entry” in 2018 – healthcare and online banking.
Nobody else was talking about either at the time because they were seemingly unimaginable moves to conventional analysts and, of course, to most investors.
Now that both have happened, the question becomes, “what’s next and how do you profit?”
I have answers to both those questions in this week’s video, including a look at why the Law of Unintended Consequences will clobber any investor caught holding on to “old guard stocks.”
Weekend Edition: Amazon’s Move into Online Banking Could Be the Most Profitable End-Industry Run Yet!

President Trump’s chief economic advisor, Gary Cohn, resigned earlier this week throwing global markets into a tizzy over fears of a (now) very real trade war.
I can’t say I’m surprised.
Having voiced my concerns on national media for a few months now, Cohn’s departure is the last straw for skittish traders who crave stability. There doesn’t seem to be anyone in the White House who can tell the President things he may not want to hear.

President Trump’s widely anticipated tariff announcement is less than an hour away and, not surprisingly, the markets are in a holding pattern. Keith appears on Trish Regan’s The Intelligence Report with Barron’s Editor in Chief, Jack Otter, to discuss how and what matters when the news breaks. The first 30 minutes after the President makes his move are critical to investors. Here’s what you need to know.

Many investors think that having “too much” risk isn’t a big deal…
… until it hits “home.”
That’s the case for 6.2 million American who have invested roughly $224 billion in Fidelity’s Freedom Funds and who recently found out – the hard way – just how much risk the fund managers have taken on to boost performance… arguably, without telling them.
The Freedom Funds, in case you are not familiar with ’em, are Fidelity’s largest retirement fund grouping and worth more than $1 billion a year in management and fee revenue to the Boston-based financial services company.
Based on “target dates,” the Freedom Funds are supposed to be a one-size, easy to use investment that diversifies investment and automatically manages risks by reducing them as fund participants age.
When you’re young, for example, you might choose the Fidelity Freedom 2060 Fund as a way to set it and forget it for the next 42 years. Somebody only two years away from retirement, by contrast, may opt for the Fidelity Freedom 2020 Fund.
The appeal is terrific.
Over time you’re supposed to get great performance and decreasing volatility – risk by any other name – that ensures your hard-earned retirement funds will be there when it’s time to call it quits.
Investors are on edge as the President’s tariffs draw closer. Keith appeared as a guest on Cavuto: Coast to Coast alongside former George W. Bush speechwriter Anneke Green and Wall Street Journal editorial board member Bill McGurn to discuss the political, economic, and financial implications which Keith likened to “taking a sledge hammer into a surgical suite.” Click below to watch.

After opening low on Monday morning, the Dow surged 400+ points higher by the closing bell. Shortly after U.S. markets closed, Keith appeared on CNBC Asia where he answered tough questions on what’s next – is it time to jump back into the market? What are the odds of an actual trade war? And, are there companies that can actually benefit from the short term chaos that we’ve seen? Keith’s insight is straight to the point and, as always, filled with profit potential. Here’s his thinking.

The Dow starts this week down – by over 100 points – and investors are wondering if it’s because of President Trump’s looming tariffs and the scare over whether a trade war could materialize because of them. Host of Varney & Co. Stuart Varney pins Keith with the question about what a trade war could mean for stocks both at home and abroad. Here’s his thinking.

Today, more than ever, investors need a no-fail plan for achieving financial freedom at any age…
Heck… at EVERY age.
It sounds difficult, but really comes down to a simple decision I call a “millionaire moment.”
My world changed in an instant the first time I had one. I believe yours will, too.

News hit the wires this week that Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) has purchased a home security start-up known as “Ring” – reportedly paying $1 billion for the privilege. Predictably, analysts fell all over themselves discussing how this move places Amazon front and center in the home delivery market.
Their thinking, of course, is off the mark. Amazon’s after a much bigger and far more profitable prize…
… your life.
I’ll get to that in a moment along with a play that could be Amazon’s next target.
Keith didn’t mince words during an appearance on Trish Regan’s The Intelligence Report when assessing the President’s imminent tariffs on steel and aluminum. History shows that protectionism never works which is why you’ve got to tread lightly with your money as the markets sort this mess out. He named three widely held stocks particularly at risk. Here’s what you need to know.
