Editor’s Note: As Chief Investment Strategist of Total Wealth, Shah believes in making his track record of recommendations easily accessible to all readers within seconds – and that’s why he’s compiled an Archives page.
Today’s column will contain some of the most valuable investing advice you’ll ever read. But be warned.
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 hills seems like a prudent thing to do.
The coronavirus situation is a long way from over and a huge number of unknowns remain – any one of which could prompt more selling ahead.

Like millions of Americans, you may have found yourself with much more time on your hands this week. You can binge-watch your favorite TV shows, obliterate your smartphone by streaming music, hit the video games… even simply sit on your …

I’m willing to bet that you’ve got more than a few minutes of free time on your hands this week.
Like millions of Americans, my family and I are cooped up at home now that Washington State has locked down.
While that’s frustrating, it’s not a bad thing.
You can binge-watch your favorite TV shows, obliterate your smartphone by streaming music, hit the video games… even simply sit on your rear end.
Or, use the time to do a little learning, especially when it comes to what it takes to invest more consistently and more profitably than you have ever before.
You’ve worked hard for your money and, if you’re like millions of investors, the coronavirus has hit your portfolio and your wallet hard.
It makes sense to protect your retirement and your money now, more than ever.
Just not like most people think.
Especially when it comes to the stock I want to share with you today.

Becoming a great investor is not easy – especially now.
You will get discouraged. You will want to give up. You will be scared by current market conditions, headlines, the coronavirus situation and more. You will fear missing out on the big rally that’s building (again)
Every investor faces this problem.
There will be days where making money seems like shooting fish in a proverbial barrel… or as impossible as finding a hen’s tooth.

Are you confused about what to do next?
I’m hearing from a number of people who are “changing” their thinking to deal with the ongoing coronavirus situation, especially when it comes to their money.
They’re trying to “buy the dip” which is great but very, very dangerous if you do that blindly or for the wrong reasons. Many have tried in recent weeks only to be nursing very expensive losses just days later.
Still more are blindly throwing their money at companies that haven’t got a hope in hell of getting through this unscathed. Cruise liners and casinos come to mind, for example. They’re down as much as 89%, in just a matter of weeks. Boeing (BA) is another.
Yet, at the same time, there’s an entirely different class of companies that’s taking off to new highs and proving to be far more resilient than the broader markets. The Clorox Co (___) comes to mind, for instance.
Naturally, many folks want to chase that kind of performance because they fear missing out on the rebound.
Do this instead.
Editor’s Note: With the coronavirus situation leaving several to work from home, the Internet’s been a little jammed up… and even Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald can’t avoid the woes of 21st century telecommuting. We apologize for the glitched video …
Millions of investors are worried that there’s more selling ahead.
Odds are, they’re correct.
Still, I’m beginning to get the sense that we’re far more likely near a bottom than a top, which means picking the “right” companies could set you up for once-in-a-lifetime wealth at prices you won’t see again for a generation.

Countries are mobilizing and isolating in a blitz attempt to stop the quarantine, and it could bring around an entirely new class of new technologies, medicines, data security, and computerization. Click here to watch!
The profits you want ARE right around the corner.
I know that’s hard to believe as the markets come unglued, but hear me out.
Playing offense is always more profitable over time than trying to avoid a downturn. Not sometimes, not at a point in time… always.
For example, I wrote to you recently, on March 6, and suggested you consider The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX). It’s just hit new all highs of $205.36 as I type. I suggested investors avoid Boeing at all costs in the aftermath of the MAX situation when it was trading at nearly $360, and it broke $100 a share this morning.
People ask me frequently “how I know.”
I simply have two things working for me that every investor needs: a) perspective drawn from 37 years in global markets and b) world class analytics that help me see what could happen next a little more clearly.
I don’t have to do a damn thing except pay attention. And, of course, buy “must have” companies the world can’t live without -something you hear me say a lot.
I want you to have the same advantage.

We aren’t there yet… but we’re at the beginning. Should we just close the markets, to reset? Keith weighs in. Click here to watch!
There’s no bottom in sight… and it’s because of the computers. People are looking for an opportunity – even just a few seconds – but the computers are getting there first. Closing the markets may be our only hope. Click here to watch!
The stock markets are obviously in uncharted territory and, while that’s extremely uncomfortable, it’s not necessarily unprofitable if you have a plan. If you’re flying by the seat of your pants, that’s something else entirely and a topic for another …
The stock markets are obviously in uncharted territory and, while that’s extremely uncomfortable, it’s not necessarily unprofitable if you have a plan. If you’re flying by the seat of your pants, that’s something else entirely and a topic for another time.
What matters now is very simple.
I smell a rat.
Robinhood Markets Inc. burst onto the scene in 2013 promising unlimited commission free trading in stocks, funds, options, and cryptocurrencies via a slick smartphone based app. Even “fractional shares” for as little as $1.
Millions of new traders – millennials in particular – signed on, drawn like moths to a flame by the premise of “democratizing finance” and crowdsourcing investment advice… whatever that means.
Old farts like me, who’ve been trading since dinosaurs roamed the earth and who cautioned against the risks associated with using an unproven app, were told bluntly that we didn’t understand.
Robinhood’s vaunted app stopped working entirely during some of the worst market conditions on record… not once… not twice…
But THREE times in recent weeks, during some of the most critical moments in modern financial history.
