    Weekender: Video Edition

    Wall Street would have you believe that building life-changing wealth is a stressful, complicated undertaking that requires their help. Yet, it doesn't have to be that way if you latch onto your money using the most powerful Total Wealth Principle we talk about all the time... being "in to win."

    Before You Buy Another Income Investment… Read This

    Many investors know that income should play an important role in their investment portfolio, but most have no idea how to go about lining it up. So, they go without, or worse, pay too much, which essentially amounts to the same thing. Fortunately, there's a simple solution. The "YARP" test. YARP, if you've never heard the term before, stands for "yield at a reasonable price." The idea

    Where the Markets are Headed if the Tax Reform Passes

    The tax reform plan released Wednesday generated more questions than answers. Our Chief Investment Strategist has long held the belief that investors should follow CEOs and not politicians, and this time is no different. Keith explains the impact that reform will bring to a few sectors but warns on CNBC’s Street Signs, “if we don’t get tax reform on the table and in place I think the market

    If You Can Only Buy One “Big Tech” Stock Today… Make it This One

    I often hear from investors who love the Total Wealth approach, but are either just starting out or simply don't have a lot of money to invest. They want to know... ...which big tech company would I recommend if they could only buy one of the "Big A's." The "Big A's" - if you've never heard the term before - are what I call Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL), Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) and

    What Tax Reform Means for Your Money

    Congress released the tax reform framework Wednesday. It proposes increasing the tax on high-income earners, reduces corporate taxes, and offers little for the majority of Americans. This proposed plan has left our Chief Investment Strategist outraged, "this is government at the people, not by the people, and it's sure not for the people." On Varney & Co., Keith expressed his continuing sentiment that "Congress doesn't understand the most fundamental rule of all when it comes to money." Here's what you need to know.

    Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS: AAPL) stumbled into market open Monday after a lackluster iPhone release, raising concerns for some investors. On the Fox Business Network's Varney & Co., host Stuart Varney notes that our Chief Investment Strategist, "saw the problem coming with Apple" and wants to know what Keith thinks investors should do next.

    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

    Sitting on the Sidelines Will Kill Your Money

    With all three market indices pushing record highs Monday morning, Keith points out to the panel of Fox Business Network's Varney & Co., "Never forget that markets are driven by two things. First, news in the short-term. And second, the prospect of business and growth longer-term." It's proof that you can't afford to sit on the sidelines. According to our Chief Investment Strategist, "That's how your money just sits around and goes away to die." Here's what you need to know.

    Part II: What to Do (and Which Stocks to Buy) to Immediately Protect Your Money

    Picking up where we left off in Part I... It's one thing to contribute your data as part of a service like Facebook or Instagram, for example, where you're using a product based on its input and therefore enjoying a more tailored web experience. It's another thing entirely to be the product... and involuntarily, at that. That's the case for 143 million Americans who had their most

    The Only Way Bitcoin Becomes an “Unstoppable Trend”

    JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon, made a statement this week calling bitcoin "a fraud." As Keith explains here, Jamie Dimon may be partially correct, but there is still a way to profit from the cryptocurrency exchange. //

    Part I: $4 Trillion in Profit Potential when “Big Data” Becomes Too Big…

    I smell a rat. Equifax announced last week that the intensely private personal data it had in its possession for 143 million Americans had been hacked. That's 1 in every 2 people. People who... ...didn't ask to be "customers." ...now have a lifelong problem because of Equifax. ...may never recover financially. Harsh? Yes, and to my way of thinking, deservedly

    Fitz-Gerald: Apple Could Be a $1 Trillion Company by the End of the Year

    Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) unveiled the next item in their device family this week: the iPhone X. But, as Keith points out on Varney & Co., investors should keep their eye on the services revenue rather than sales "gee whiz" gadgets. It's a segment that, by itself, is the size of a Fortune 100 company. Growth in that segment combined with a loyal customer base could push Apple's market cap over the $1 trillion threshold by the end of this year, as Keith boldly declares in this clip.

    Could Your Personal Data Now Be Public?

    One of the largest credit reporting agencies in America - responsible for determining whether you can get that car loan, secure your dream home, and other fiscal necessities - just announced a massive data breach that impacted more than 143 million people. As Keith explains on Varney & Co. Monday morning, "I hope they are sued into oblivion on this one, and that this is a warning shot that consumers have had it with companies like this playing with our (personal) data and making billions." Here's what you need to know to protect yourself ahead of the next time data collecting goes too far.

    Amazon Just Sent a Message to Every Tax-Happy Politician in the World

    Not two months ago, I shared my thoughts with you on why Seattle's City Council was making one of the worst possible decisions of all time when it voted unanimously to pass a 2.25% income tax on city residents making more than $250,000 a year, and on couples filing jointly who make more than $500,000 a year. "If you treat money punitively, it leaves," I said. And, when it does, I noted, "It
