Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald has long said that contrarian plays are one of the best ways to make money in the markets. Today at FreedomFest, he sat down with legendary investor Jim Rogers to talk about what Wall Street is getting wrong now – and where the next big contrarian play is going to be. You don’t want to miss this.

With dysfunction and growing gridlock in Washington, D.C., some investors are worried. So Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald sat down with famed millionaire, publisher, and philanthropist Steve Forbes at FreedomFest to discuss how conditions for company profits look like in America today – and where growth will come from next.
Conventional wisdom holds that Wall Street is rigged to favor the big traders, and that you’ll never win.
The implication, of course, is why even try?
I’ve never believed that, and you shouldn’t either.
In reality, there are plenty of savvy investors who have beaten and who continue to beat Wall Street at its own game consistently, including Sir John Templeton, the legendary Jim Rogers, Stanley Druckenmiller, and Warren Buffett, just to name a few.
I want YOU to be one of ’em, and I’m here to tell you that YOU can beat the Street.
I’m not kidding.

With the S&P hitting an all-time high this morning, and Sears Holding Corp. (SHLD) up more than 10%, Fox Business Network invited Keith to Varney & Co. to explain why this isn’t a bubble – and why the retail apocalypse grinds on, despite the latest desperate attempt to avoid it by Sears.
PS Keith’s appearance was recorded in Las Vegas, where Keith is featured speaker at FreedomFest this week. Stay tuned for some behind-the-scenes footage from the conference – and from today’s Varney & Co. appearance.
Noted investor Doug Kass made headlines Friday claiming that “Washington” has begun antitrust talks on Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) and, not surprisingly, I got a blizzard of emails from anxious investors asking if they should be selling or even shorting Amazon, too.
To which I have but one reply…
…not unless you like handing over your money to line someone else’s pocket.
The real question – and the one you should be asking – is why Kass is saying what he did and who stands to benefit. Then make your decision on how to play the situation for profits.
I’ll help you do both right now.

With earnings season starting, the question on everyone’s mind is: will companies be able to repeat the great results they posted last time? As Keith points out, that’s likely to happen for three particular sectors – regardless of the drama coming out of Washington, D.C.
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.
That said, there is one way you can make any investment risk “free” under the right set of circumstances, by using one of my favorite Total Wealth tactics: the free trade.
The concept of a “risk free” investment is not new. The allure of risking nothing and gaining everything has been around for centuries.
More than 50% of Americans age 35 to 54 have less than $10,000 saved for retirement, according to Time.
How we got to this point over the last 15 years is hardly surprising.
Many investors watched helplessly as their 401(k)s became “201(k)s” during the Financial Crisis… for the second time in a decade.
Generation X-ers were particularly hard hit, losing roughly 45% of their average net worth during the Great Recession, according to the Financial Times.

Millions of investors are familiar with the concept of “dollar-cost averaging” – meaning that they buy a fixed dollar amount of something regularly over time regardless of share price.
Today I want to share a Total Wealth Tactic that can help you build bigger profits faster.
In case you are not familiar with the term “dollar-cost averaging,” it’s simply a means of accumulating investment assets by buying the same dollar amount of shares at some predetermined regular interval, regardless of the market price at that time.
Many investors try to time the markets despite overwhelming evidence that doing so is a fool’s errand.
I totally get where they’re coming from.
The idea of picking market tops and bottoms is very seductive, but they may as well be trying to catch falling knives.
According to Nobel Laureate William Sharpe, the average investor would have to be right a staggering 82% of the time just to match “buy and hold” returns. Most investors will never get close.
Which is why the odds change radically in your favor if you learn to anticipate when market conditions favor buying or selling.
I’ve only seen one indicator over the past 35 years that works consistently enough to help you anticipate corrections before they happen and rallies before others see them coming.
Market timing does not work.

There’s an old joke that’s made its way around financial circles over the years. It goes something like this:
An investment banker walks into a room where his cohorts are in a meeting. “I’ve got good news and bad news,” he announces. “The bad news is, we’ve just lost $100 million. The good news is, it wasn’t ours.” An associate raises his hand. “What was the bad news again?”
It’s dark financial humor no doubt, but there’s more than a grain of truth to the story. Whether we’re talking about brokers, bankers, or even your most trusted financial advisor, you cannot rely on anyone else to care about your money and keep it safe.
At the end of the day, the only thing standing between your portfolio and catastrophic loss is your own caution and proper risk management.
I’m getting a lot of questions about real estate right now and, specifically, about whether REITs are as “bad” as many investors think when rates are rising.
In fact, the right REITs can be better, safer and potential far more lucrative as interest rates increase.

On the surface, economic metrics are looking down, but remember – as Keith explains to the panel – “government statistics are more cooked than a Christmas goose.” A quick look at companies shows that revenues and earnings (the real signs of a healthy economy) are both increasing. That’s caught traders’ attentions – and means opportunities for you, too.
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.
