Moving into the heart of earnings season, many investors are concerned about political infighting, “permabears” calling for a correction, and the impact of tax reform… should it pass. Still, as Keith points out on CNBC World’s Wall Street Wrap, there are three reasons we could see record growth ahead. Click to watch…

I’ve talked with tens of thousands of investors over the years and almost to a person they’re convinced that building wealth is a complicated, difficult undertaking.
Not the way I see it.
In reality the biggest challenge isn’t investing itself.
And, specifically, the lies we tell ourselves about money.
Learn to get around those, and making money becomes easy. Racking up huge profits becomes fun. Retirement becomes – dare I say it – something you enjoy.

I’m typing with a heavy hand and an equally heavy heart following the horrendous events in Las Vegas earlier this week. It’s a city I know well and have enjoyed tremendously over the years.
As with any act of violence no matter where in the world it happens, it’s difficult to imagine how a nation, and so many people who have had their lives tragically shattered, will bounce back.
Many investors are wondering why the financial markets didn’t come unglued when news of the shooting broke.
In years past, they would have gone straight down or at least stopped in their tracks. Yet, incredibly, the opposite is happening.
The markets powered up Monday, then again Tuesday, to notch a new five-day winning streak at record highs. And, they’re up again in early trading Wednesday morning as I write.
There’s actually a very good reason, albeit one that’s completely counterintuitive.
In the years since 9/11, traders have learned to distinguish between two types of events:
- highly localized events that make international news, and;
- localized events that are global news.
Today’s financial markets are truly global, which means that they are increasingly impervious to highly localized trauma, regardless of why it occurs or even who causes it.

Despite Sunday night’s horrific events in Las Vegas, the markets soared to new highs almost immediately after Monday’s open. Here’s Keith on the counterintuitive reason why. Click to watch…
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.” Click to watch…

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 is very simple.
Pay as little as possible for as much income as possible.
I know that sounds obvious but you’d be floored by how many investors have quietly approached me over the years in hushed tones asking for help sorting this out.
Many are deeply embarrassed that they just “don’t get it.” Yet, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I know plenty of Wall Street professionals who are completely clueless when it comes to income investing.
Let’s start with how you define the term.

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 is going to have some trouble.” Here’s what you need to know.

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.”
Frankly, it’d be very hard to go wrong with any of ’em over time, which is why I recommend positions in all three companies individually in my premium publication, the Money Map Report.
Apple’s shares have risen more than 35% over the past 12 months while Amazon’s tacked on 25%. And, last but by no means least, Alphabet shares have appreciated 15%.
The three are clearly competitors, and good ones at that. It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking mobile phones, smart devices, the Internet of Things, interactive households, media, or even Big Data – just to name a few product sets. They’ve all got serious potential.
But, again, that’s not the question at hand.
We’re here to talk about which ONE company I would pick if I had to buy “just” one.
Here’s how to break the situation down.

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. Here’s what Keith had to say. Click to watch…
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 does this remove risk from your portfolio, but it means you can potentially build profits faster, more consistently, and more securely than you might think.
Doing so is a critically important concept given current market conditions and a bull market that, as of yesterday is 3,117 days old and has run more than 237% off March 9, 2009 lows.
We’re long overdue for a correction… a correction, I might add, that YOU don’t have to fear if you understand what we’re going to talk about today.
This is your moment of truth.

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. Click to watch…
