Swinging markets are producing clear winners and losers, but investors who recognize the macro trends can still come out on top
Way back in 2008, Warren Buffett made a million-dollar bet with Ted Seides of Protégé Partners that he could beat the hedge fund manager’s performance over a ten-year period using a single handpicked mutual fund. At the time, if you recall, hedge funds were the “bomb” and many investors wanted access to managers who could supposedly beat the market as our economy lurched into the Financial Crisis.
Fast forward to today and this bet has rattled the hedge fund industry to its core. I’d even go so far as to say it might help kill it. But that’s not the real story.
What you need to understand is that headlines the media will run when Buffett wins two years from now will not be correct: index funds are not better than hedge funds. More importantly, they never will be.
Something else has made all the difference… and believe me, Buffett knows exactly what it is.
More precisely, he knew from the very get-go why he wouldn’t lose.
Here’s what you need to know when it comes to your money.
Earlier this year, I told you about a small, relatively unheard of media company poised for profits-no matter what kind of agenda our next president brings to the White House. So far, it’s beaten the S&P by a little more than 2 to 1, and returned 28% to date versus only 12% from the S&P 500 over the same time frame.
If you’re on board, that’s fabulous. Chances are, you’re grinning ear to ear for having made your move. If not, you’ll want to act quickly.
You see, all the political discord, the name-calling, and the finger-pointing that’s taken over our airwaves at the moment actually improves this company’s potential.

As the presumptive GOP nominee, it’s time for Donald Trump to tackle the sophisticated issues. As Trump takes his seat at the ‘big boy table,’ what does his tax agenda mean for your money?
I’ve got some important news today regarding our favorite Human Augmentation play: Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (OTCQB:EKSO).
The company made a major announcement earlier this week that’s proof positive Ekso is on track and progressing nicely as expected. It’s also something I’m extremely excited to see, for reasons I’ll tell you about in a minute.
But first, I want to start by telling you what’s happened and what it means for your money.
Washington’s made a huge stink about our economic recovery and politicians of all stripes want us to believe that their actions are in the name of your financial prosperity.
What a load of you-know-what.
I’m not going to mince words – our government is killing the American Dream and, with it, the retirement hopes of millions of investors.
Thankfully, though, not yours.
Today we’re going to talk about why the U.S. government’s latest boneheaded move actually clears the path for bigger profits, and how you’ll know what to buy both now and in the future when you see them repeat their mistakes.
Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) took a beating last week, shedding more than 7% of its market cap as Carl Icahn made a bad selloff worse by unloading $700 million worth of stock. Here’s why individual investors shouldn’t follow Icahn’s example.
Apple Inc. (NadsaqGS:AAPL) shares got blasted Wednesday with a $40 billion selloff following news of the company’s first-ever revenue decrease and a slowdown in iPhone sales.
The media pile-on was quick and unforgiving:
…Apple’s Stock Is Getting Destroyed and It’s Dragging the Market in the Red – Business Insider
…iPhone Sales Drop, and Apple’s 13-Year Surge Ebbs – The New York Times
…Apple Will Head to $80s – This Chart Shows Why – The Street
The real fireworks started Thursday, though, when news crossed the wires that billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn dumped his Apple holdings. Legions of investors piled on driving the price down another $3 per share to close of $94.83 per share. And, it continues today as I write in early trading.
I can’t think of a worse mistake than bailing out now.
On the heels of yet more lackluster economic data, Apple’s widely scrutinized miss, and ahead of yet another of Team Yellen’s cheerleading sessions Thursday, many investors are understandably nervous about what happens next in the stock market.
That’s totally understandable but I want to let you in on a little secret… achieving higher returns is easier than you think.
All you need is the right portfolio structure.
There’s no question that having the right stock picks is important but it’s not the “do all end all” many investors think, and that’s what we’re going to talk about today.
Sadly, most folks are completely blind to the potential so they leave a lot of money on the table that could be – rather bluntly – in their pockets. Heck, in your pockets.
As always, I’ve got a recommendation for you that makes an ideal cornerstone investment for any investor interested in both the truth and higher returns.
Stop leaving money on the table today.

I’m used to giving tough presentations, but last week’s took the cake when I was asked to frame my delivery around something that’s on many investors’ minds at the moment…
…how to invest for big profits when the smartest guys in the room are wrong
There’s no doubt the “guys in the room are wrong” when you look at the mess central bankers around the world have created in their rush to stimulate the world’s economy.
Nearly every central banker around the world has his or her hands in the proverbial cookie jar at the moment. Together they’ve injected an estimated $8 trillion into the world’s markets with more on the way according to The Wall Street Journal. Yet, the IMF recently made headlines for downgrading global growth to a mere 3.2%??!!
If central bankers actually knew what they were doing and stimulus actually worked, the world’s economy would be screaming along at 7% a year and there’d be more jobs than workers. Wages would be rising and there’d be a housing market that would make even the Kardashians blink.
That’s obviously not happening. Trying the same tired old tactics and expecting different results is a fool’s errand. And that means you’ve got to invest accordingly.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today and, as always, I’ve got an investment choice to get you started that’s perfectly suited for today’s markets.
“It’s so personal…”
I made you a promise when I started Total Wealth – that I would make it the most valuable investing newsletter you’ll ever read. I would do that, I said, by offering a mix of analysis, opportunity, and tactical tips needed to prosper and protect your wealth in today’s complicated financial markets.
Today I’m going to keep that promise with a look at a Total Wealth Tactic we haven’t covered yet – how to squeeze every last penny in profits out of stocks you own.
It’s not what you’ll find in a typical newsletter.
It is much more personal because it starts with a story from one of your colleagues – Ron C. – who pulled my team and I aside between presentations in Carlsbad, California last week to explain what today’s topic has meant to him and his money.
Here’s the story…
If you remember the early 1980s like I do, chances are you remember the driving base line, electrifying sound and scorching vocals of this smash hit performed by the British rock band, Queen.
An ode to the times, it came to symbolize any key event that doesn’t go ahead as planned or an unanticipated outcome from which there is no potential recovery.
Like the long anticipated Pfizer/Allergan tie up.
That deal came to an unceremonious end earlier this week when the country’s biggest drug company walked away from a $160 billion deal that would have relocated the company to Ireland as a means of lowering taxes.
The term “human augmentation” brings to mind nightmarish sci-fi movie images for many people. But it brings to mind dollar signs for me.
That’s because the industry will grow by more than 4,000% in the next four years, to total $1.8 billion by 2020.
However, not all that growth will happen equally.
You’ve got to make some very careful decisions when it comes to your money if you want to line up with the winners. The vast majority of emerging tech in this area will never make it off the drawing board, let alone into production. Clearly, not all stocks are equal.
Here’s the thing most investors are missing.
The winners aren’t just developing new technology; they’re developing it in such a way that they’ve got access to entirely new business models competitors don’t understand or simply cannot access.
That’s why I’m excited to tell you about the latest headline making news from our favorite Human Augmentation play, Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (OTC:EKSO).
What I’m about to tell you gives the company a distinct advantage and could create an entirely new group of millionaires savvy enough to cash in.
