Western investors reacted with outright derision and plenty of skepticism when news broke this week that one or more Chinese automakers are considering bids for Detroit’s Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE:FCAU).
What they don’t realize is that not only is a deal like this absolutely possible, it’s highly probable.
Which means the time to make your move is now.
Many investors are simply incredulous. I’ve spoken with tens of thousands of them over the years who cannot grasp the enormous financial implications associated with China’s emergence as a global power.
In some cases, they don’t want to acknowledge that China truly has global aspirations.
Most of the time, though, I find they simply cannot process the notion that somebody may have a bigger, more profitable vision of the future than they do – especially when it comes to an industry we pioneered.
However, they better get used to the idea… Chinese automakers are a logical partner.
In fact, they may be the only partner.

Technically speaking, Kim Jung Un never left; he just started launching missiles.
Missiles capable of carrying miniaturized nuclear warheads, according to various sources.
Obviously, that’s a BIG problem.
So far the markets have taken this in stride, but traders finally let jitters get the best of them yesterday.
That’s why “safe-assets” like gold and the Swiss Franc rallied against the dollar as a result while the S&P 500, the Dow and the Nasdaq all fell.
As you might imagine, I’m getting lots of questions about what the brash young leader’s nuclear aspirations could mean for your money.

Reagan-era Budget Director David Stockman rocked markets Monday with a note to clients calling Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) a bubble, saying the company is “set for a spectacular collapse.”
Then he went on to say that a tech crash is “imminent” and that the company most at risk is Amazon because it hasn’t invented anything “explosively new like the iPhone or personal computer.”
Amazon is not a Reagan-era company, so measuring it today using criteria that applied 35 years ago completely misses the point, not to mention the profit potential.
Many investors think that what’s happening with Uber can’t or won’t impact their portfolio because it’s a private company.
Uber’s ongoing train wreck will have a material impact on your money in ways that most investors won’t expect.
Especially when it comes to my favorite subject.
What’s happening with Uber is pretty straightforward, and proof positive that we’ve been on the right track all along.
I made you some very specific promises when I started Total Wealth. Not only would we cover specific trading ideas and big trends, but we’d also dive into the specific tactics needed to maximize your wealth.
Today I’m going to keep that promise with a look at one way to trade Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) and Whole Foods Market Inc. (NasdaqGS:WFM) right now using a Total Wealth Tactic I know you’ll love as much as I do.
What I really like about this trade is that it’s easy to understand and even easier to implement. And, it has the potential to profit no matter whether the markets go up, down, or simply sideways.
Best of all, though, there’s $1 trillion up for grabs.
The images I’m about to share with you today are upsetting.
To be honest, I find them downright disturbing. But if you’re planning to invest even a single dollar this year, you’ve got to see them…
…and invest accordingly – or risk losing it all, like most others will.
Hopefully, like me, you’ve got one foot out the door on the way to Memorial Day festivities. Knowing that’s the case, I don’t want to be the person who ruins your weekend especially with all the pessimism that’s running rampant on the Internet and in the headlines.
Instead, what I want to do is share some of the most valuable investment advice I ever received.
Just thinking about what a difference it’s made in my life is putting a smile on my face as I write. That’s because I’m optimistic that it will have the same impact in yours.
Yesterday’s conversation during the ride home yesterday was about as damning an indictment of investment potential as I’ve ever heard…
Do you use branded filters?
What’s your favorite company?
Which of the highlighted stories do you read regularly?
Tesla stock hit another new record high Monday… up a staggering 1,200% since the company went public in 2010.
Still, the bears can’t give up – not the least of whom is legendary hedge fund manager, David Einhorn, who roars that the stuck is in a bubble and on the verge of crashing.
I can’t blame him. I’d be bearish, too, if I were the “Mayor of Shortsville” and talking my own book… and if I thought Tesla was a car company.
Peter Lynch achieved rock star status in the 1980s when he ran the Fidelity Magellan Fund. So much so that an estimated 1 in 100 Americans invested at the time based on a very simple premise driving his work, “invest in what you know.”
It’s a common-sense mantra that still resonates with millions of folks today who think they’re going to get ahead of Wall Street by doing nothing more sophisticated than buying an “iconic brand” they’ve encountered in their lives.
Problem is… being iconic isn’t good enough in today’s markets.
One of the world’s most problematic nations is on its deathbed.
Just don’t tell Kim Jung Un that. The brash young North Korean leader apparently thinks things are great and has no problem rattling sabers around the world to prove his point.
Complicating matters, there seems to be an ongoing narrative in the mainstream financial media that “nobody’d better talk about the possibility of thermonuclear war” lest it become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I’m hard pressed to think of anything more dangerous for your money which is why I want to talk about what you need to do right now… before the shooting starts.
I received an important question last week from Margaret who, at 81-years young, has a problem most members of the Total Wealth Family would love to have.
No, scratch that… a problem I am going to do my very best to make sure you have.
“…but Trump hates China??!!”
That was my friend Jack, who couldn’t fathom that last week’s historic meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and United States President Donald J. Trump didn’t end in a diplomatic donnybrook.
Like many investors who expected the gloves to come off, he’s wondering what gives and what this means for his money.
I’ve got a few answers and I think you’re going to be very excited by what I have to say about where to position your money next, especially if you “missed” Amazon.
Trump’s legislative schedule has been put on pause, the market’s post-election rally has paused with it, and investors should practice cautious optimism while the President works to get his agenda back on track. As Keith says on Varney & Co., “This is a ‘show and tell’ market – I need to be shown now.”

Markets have come up sharply since the election on the hope that it would not be “business as usual” in Washington, but as Keith points out on Varney & Co., delays in tax reform look an awful lot like it. How does Keith see the markets responding, and what does it all mean for your money? Watch his full commentary here.
