The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite all tanked last week...and then came roaring back. We're looking at an aging bull market, so this type of activity is expected. But is it just a bounce, or are the markets sending us messages we should pay attention to? Keith weighs in on Making Money With Charles Payne. //

Keith took to the screen on Wednesday morning to discuss his take on the Fed's latest move, and what it means for your money. The Fed's been out of control, and has been for years. Their latest stunt - lowering interest rates - is a good move, but it's all for the wrong reasons.

Keith then discusses Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS), focusing on their latest earning report, which came back strong. In fact, according to Keith, the whole company is strong, and earnings are set to double in three to five years. It's a good buy, and Keith lays out exactly why it's a sound investment below.

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said, "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

Hello from Scotland! I'm on vacation this week, trekking through the Scottish Highlands with my bride of 24 wonderful years, Noriko. We've been out here for about a week now, all alone, except for the sheep, the goats, and the handfuls of other Highland animals we've seen on our journey. I'm going to keep this brief, so I can get back to this lovely place. I have been keeping

I've been hiking through the Scottish Highlands, but don't worry, I've also been keeping a careful eye on the markets...and the headlines. Here's what I want you to keep in mind this trading season.

The most direct path to building a fortune is not losing your money in the first place. Sound obvious, right? Of course it does. But the fact is that most investors get bored when you mention risk management - and if they aren't bored, then they're downright scared. You see, it's not that they don't want to control risk; they're just not sure how and they don't make it a priority. The
Today's column will contain some of the most valuable investing advice you'll ever read. But be forewarned. You won't see this anywhere else. What I have to say is direct... blunt even. I've chosen to publish this column today because I want every investor who reads it to have a fighting chance in the months ahead, at a time when the headlines are hopelessly negative and running for the

If you are tired of click-bait headlines... If you aren't sure how the Fed's next move will impact your money... If you are scared to invest... If you looking to buy great companies and turn your money into a fortune... Then you will definitely want to hear what I have to say. Investing isn't easy, but it doesn't have to be difficult. That's something many investors

International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) reported earnings last Wednesday. The company earned $3.17 a share on revenue of $19.16 billion versus analyst expectations of $3.07 per share on revenue of $19.16 - effectively a "beat" on earnings but a "meet" on revenue. The stock jumped following the announcement but has already started coming down, trading around $150 per

Wall Street's done a great job at convincing investors that trading must be complicated, and that's absolutely not the case. Investing can be done from your car, in the workplace, at the beach - wherever...but you have to be careful. Wall Street doesn't want you to know how and where most people get separated from their money.

IBM is an American icon and long-time favorite investment that many traders can't imagine being without. According to Keith, it's also "zombie tech," a company that may never again be relevant. Here's what undervalued tech player Keith vouches for instead.

Earnings reports are starting to roll in, and Keith Fitz-Gerald's ready. On Varney & Co. Monday morning, Keith went into details:
"I think [tech earnings are] going to be very, very strong, much stronger than many people expect. Now, arguably, the bar is pretty low to begin with, but that doesn't change the fact that these companies are doing very innovative things, changing the world we live in. And I think that is worth a lot of money to savvy investors."
Earnings are all about two things: outlook and expectations. He's repeatedly called out doom and gloomers, counseling that earnings will - yet again - be stronger than expected, giving the companies that come out on top a favorable boost.
Keith then had a chance to talk about a few other things, which ranged from China to Disney to Equifax.
On China, Keith started off by talking about the rising dissention in China, and, more importantly, what it means for Chinese negotiations. Is it part of the trade negotiations? Keith weighs in.
From there, the discussion turned to The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS), and how their streaming service is stacking up to Netflix, Hulu, and even Amazon Prime. Disney has an edge over the competition, and Keith is revealing why libraries and content will come out on top compared to services that are simply providers.
This edge puts Disney in the running as an Unstoppable Trend - Technology - and it's a Buy at $141.04. Alternatively, Keith says you can wait until the next correction and jump in then.
Next, the conversation turned to Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX), which may have to pay as much as $700 million in fines due to a data breach - and Keith thinks they're getting off easy.
"I think there should have been criminal charges; they have involuntarily made all of us customers and, and they are reaping the benefits from that," he explained on air. "I think to allow them to settle is a mistake. There should have been depositions, they should have thrown a harsh light on how the business works into the spotlight."
The Equifax settlement stinks because it highlights one of the unseen risks of technology, where consumers ARE the product, whether they like it or not.
Of course, Technology is still one of the Unstoppable Trends, and that's why the sector is ripe with must-have companies - Equifax aside. Look at Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN), and Google's Alphabet Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOGL) - these are all companies that are revolutionizing the world.
Before signing off, Keith made sure to touch on Chevrolet. The company is releasing their new Corvette C8, and Keith called it "Harley Davidson Inc. (NYSE:HOG) on four wheels," which is far from a compliment.
The reality is that the Corvette is an iconic brand, and one that caters to a specific market of people. Corvette buyers are dying out and people aren't flocking from Porsche, Ferrari, and Jaguars to buy the newest 'Vette. The company can't adapt, and it's hurting their bottom line.
Keith's advice? Don't buy automakers - buy the technology that's driving them. He's talking about the companies that are developing the newest AI software, digital sensors, and the like - just follow the Unstoppable Trends.
If you don't know where to start, Keith's got you covered. He recommends the companies backed by the six Unstoppable Trends in his sister research service, Money Map Report, which you can sign up for today - and start receiving weekly alerts, monthly reports with two recommendations per month.

Big tech is reporting earnings this week, and the numbers may be stronger than people expect. The bar may be low, but these companies are doing innovative things and changing the world we live in - and that's what investors are looking to see.
Jul 20, 2019
Earnings season is now in high gear and, as I suggested may be the case, the numbers are coming in stronger than expected. We talked about Pepsi last week, but the news this week was all about the big banks. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE:GS) blew the doors off Wall Street's expectations, posting earnings of $5.81 versus the $4.89 analysts had on the board. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) posted earnings of $2.82 versus estimates of $2.50. As usual, though, the real story is something entirely different. Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase highlight solid momentum: healthy confidence, solid jobs, rising wages, and so much more. The consumer, to a point we talk about frequently, is stronger than the headlines suggest. But that's not the real story, and that's, as usual, where I get really concerned. Especially when it comes to debt. Credit card sales, according to JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, reflect healthy consumption, but I think they reflect something far deeper and far more sinister.
(Click here)Key Takeaways:
- Consumer debt reflects a deeper problem, not success.
- The Fed couldn't tell you the truth if it wanted (but I will)
- Why rates don't matter like people think
