    Divergence Between These Sectors Could Mean One of Two Things Ahead – Here’s How to Prepare for Both

    The S&P 500 is on target to hit the "best first half-year" it's had in more than a decade, while the Dow is on track to do even better - with the best June on record since 1938. Strategically speaking, I think the rally could go on for another decade, which is why you want to invest accordingly. There's just that much fuel pent up between growing sales, cheap money and - unbelievably - a

    Weekend Edition: Divergence Between These Sectors Could Mean One of Two Things Ahead – Here’s How to Prepare for Both

    The S&P 500 is on target to hit the "best first half-year" it's had in more than a decade, while the Dow is on track to do even better - with the best June on record since 1938. Strategically speaking, I think the rally could go on for another decade, which is why you want to invest accordingly. There's just that much fuel pent up between growing sales, cheap money and - unbelievably - a still accommodative Fed. Tactically speaking, though, I think we could see a short-term change in direction. Here's why.

    This One Tool Made the Difference Between Bankruptcy and $13 Million

    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 humor, but

"Truce" streaming across the headlines Monday morning could shoot the markets higher, but here's Keith on why you might not have to wait for Monday morning to see what could happen.

    This Is What Tariffs on Vietnam Could Mean for Your Money

    Keith joins Fox Business Network this afternoon to let you in on why the "whack-a-mole" approach to tariffs President Trump seems to be taking can be disturbing and potentially expensive, but there's also something you can't forget when it comes to the biggest global companies.... and what that could mean for your money ahead.

    Five with Fitz: Questions (and Answers) that Could Drive Big Profits

    Good morning from Eastern Washington where I'm on the road doing a little research into the latest scientific advances in agriculture, watering technology, and even fertilizer. I'll have more on those things in the weeks ahead, but more immediately, I thought we'd dive into the mailbag. As always, the questions you're asking are spot on. Q - What's next with China? Is there really going

    Weekend Edition: The Closest Thing to a Recession-Proof Stock I Can Find

    Recessions come and go, often without warning. Surviving them is a matter of perspective. The best thing to look for in a "recession-proof" investment mirror the stuff we talk about frequently - companies making must-have products that the world can't live without.

    The Closest Thing to a Recession-Proof Stock I Can Find

    Good morning and welcome to another edition of your Total Wealth Weekender. I'm Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press. Thanks, as always, for spending a few minutes of your valuable time with me today. I'm often asked to recommend stocks that will "beat the market" or "withstand a trade war with China" or - as of late - be "recession-proof" - a thought on the minds

    Facebook’s Libra is NOT an Investment… But This Is

    The crypto-crowd was abuzz earlier this week when Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB) announced that it was creating a new digital currency called Libra. Only it's not a crypto currency. It's money, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants you to believe it's Facebook's redemption. Not. But I tell you this... it could be the single most dangerous form of digital surveillance yet and, as such, a

    Gary Vaynerchuk: Earn $100,000 in Income with this “Side Hustle”

    Serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk told CNBC recently that he's seen people go from having nothing to making $100,000 using something he calls, "retail arbitrage flipping." My eyebrows shot up. Not only because Gary Vee - that's how he's known the inspirational wealth building crowd - is right, but because of the specific choice of words he used. Retail...Arbitrage...Flipping. The

    How The Fed, Bitcoin, and Tech Malfunctions Affect the Markets

    The Federal Reserve could cut interest rates on Wednesday afternoon - or raise them. One way, it's a nonevent, but if it goes the other way, we could be looking at a huge selloff. Here's what Keith has to say about the Fed's interest rates, technology malfunctions, and Bitcoin - and how they affect the market.

    The Markets Are Always Wrong About What the Fed Will Do Next

    Right now there's a lot of discussion about what the Fed will do next and how that will impact markets. So much so, in fact, that I've been asked about it during several recent television interviews. The topic's already come up this morning as well at the Seattle Money Show where I'm speaking about why every investing dollar you'll make for the next ten years is on "this list." I hope you're signed up because it will be streamed live starting at 10:40 a.m. Pacific Standard time. Click here to do so. Better yet, I hope you're here, and we have a chance to say hello! Anyway, my answer on this issue remains the same. I don't care. The market is almost always dead wrong about what the Fed will do next. Take two recent examples that are very much on the minds of investors today. The market expected rates to rise for an extended period of time and was flat out WRONG from 2009 all the way to 2016. That's a lot like saying it'll be pouring tomorrow, only to have another glorious blue-sky day...every day, for seven straight years. Now, the rally is being pinned on hopes that the Fed will...cut rates, that is. People ask me all the time how I "got it right" under the circumstances, especially when it came to the rally off 2009 lows and the monster generational bull market that has, once again, put is within a whisper of record highs. Honestly, I didn't. I told you the Fed wouldn't raise rates because I knew the very same information I've just shared with you - namely that market's almost always wrong about what the Fed does next. And that's why I said keep your foot on the gas when it comes to your money. Now, again, there are fears the party is over and that the Fed will lower rates in the months ahead because the Fed rates imply so. Knowing what you know now, I think the question becomes so what if they do??!! The answer is deceptively simple. Forget about the academic models you can't control and concentrate on what you can control. The easies way to do that is to invest in the Unstoppable Trends that we follow. These companies are making "must-have" products will continue to rise to the top, no matter what the markets are doing. If you're on board, you'll be rising to the top with them. CEOs in charge of billions of dollars' worth of REAL money are always one step ahead of the Fed and policy makers playing with academic models and false assumptions, not to mention cooked data, too. Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. The surprising reason I don't worry about what the Fed does next (and you shouldn't either)
    2. History reveals a surprising data point
    3. How to line up big profits no matter which way rates (or the rally) go from here
    Until next time, Keith

    A DIY Annuity even the Rolling Stones Would Love

    I remember September 1981 vividly, but not for reasons you might think. Young, bulletproof, and fearless, I "met the Stones" and, much to my parent's chagrin, nearly got arrested in the process, which is a story for another time. That got me thinking. The 1981 tour to promote Tattoo You, the Rolling Stone latest album back then, was widely expected at the time to be the last time the

    Defense. It's a key part of the Total Wealth Strategy and a fundamental element in one of the Six Unstoppable Trends we follow: War, Terrorism and Ugliness. A growth trend, really. Sadly, most investors are missing out, but not for reasons you might think. Today, I want to talk about that for a moment and give you a head start that could be one of the most profitable trades you make
