It's summer trading season, and that means the markets are going to thin out and volatility is to be expected. But we're not worried - volatility always creates opportunity, if you know where to look, and what to focus on.
Millions of investors are looking at this 1,300-point rally and thinking it's all due to a potential trade deal between the U.S. and China. As Keith puts it, the answer to that question is yes - AND no. His reason for saying that could spell out exactly where these markets will go from here...

Pessimists rarely make money because they're focused on headlines that reflect the past. Savvy investors, on the other hand, often laugh all the way to the bank because they focus on the future. The future is ALL that matters when it comes to big profits. Proper risk management is for everything else. Worrying about whether the markets are going to go up, down, or even sideways is a fool's errand. And, about as effective as driving down the road using your rearview mirrors.
I'm still at home recovering from my own medical misadventures last week and, before we go any further, let me say, thank you for the many emails, calls, and messages I've received. They are tremendously appreciated, and have made an otherwise tough time a lot better! Anyway, enough about that, but speaking of which...perhaps I should go to the hospital more often! The Dow tacked on a stunning 700+ points in the first three days of the week and is up again as I record this. Anybody who was not "in to win" like we are (and like we've talked about repeatedly in recent weeks), is now losing.... and, badly at that. Which just proves something we talk about all the time yet again. Pessimists rarely make money because they're focused on headlines that reflect the past. Savvy investors, on the other hand, often laugh all the way to the bank because they focus on the future. The world's best companies line up with the Unstoppable Trends we follow and make "must-have" products the world cannot live without. What's more, they make them today but, importantly, they WILL make them tomorrow, too. Even the FANG stocks, Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB), Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN), Netflix Inc. (NasdaqGS:NFLX), and Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOGL), - which have been beaten down mercilessly on fears of looming government regulation - are a good example. The future is ALL that matters when it comes to big profits you deserve. Proper risk management is for everything else. Worrying about whether the markets are going to go up, down, or even sideways is a fool's errand and always has been. What's more, it's about as effective as driving down the road backwards using your rearview mirrors. The world's best companies are led by competent, savvy men and women who plan for and grow their businesses through thick and thin. They're not worried about policies they cannot control, who's in the White House, or even fancy-pants academic models. Concerned... But not worried. Their job - like ours - is to make money practically no matter what happens next, which is why we want to invest accordingly. And, to a point manyinvestors miss, consistently. Speaking of which, thanks again for spending your time with me, albeit in a slightly more informal and highly unusual setting this week. I'm on the mend and, not surprisingly, will have some medically-related recommendations based on my experience over the past week. Have a fabulous weekend!
- Pessimists rarely make money because they are trapped in the past but profitable investors know looking to the future is where you make the big bucks.
- The Fed may have finally said something materially correct (and which will be great for your money)
- Here's what to do next - even if you fear the worst.
Until next time, Keith
For most investors, the relationship between investing and profits seems simple enough. You buy low, sell high, and your portfolio grows - or so goes the story. In reality, success ultimately comes down to defeating something called "Gambler's Ruin." We're going to talk about that today - what it is, what it means for your money and, most importantly, how to beat it. It's a column you

You have to have a thick skin in this business when you stand on your convictions. And, no surprise, I live by that principle. What you see is what you get with me, especially when it comes to sticking with new trends that can make you a ton of money when they happen. Over the years, I've made some whoppers... ... The rise of the Japanese yen, beating legendary trader George Soros to

Keith is traveling this week, and we wanted to share this video with you. During the Las Vegas MoneyShow a little over two weeks ago, he joined a panel beside American economist Mark Skousen, CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. Peter Schiff, and Reaves Asset Management institutional seller Thomas Grimes. The topic is "where to invest next"... so they discuss current

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said, "good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement." Adored during the 1930s, I can only wonder what he'd say today. History rarely works out as expected, especially when it comes to the perspective you need to profit from it. Society, of course, doesn't think this way, which is why our

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. It's you. And, specifically, the lies we tell ourselves about money. Learn to get around those, and making money becomes easy. Racking up

Markets open higher this morning at the tail end of a rough, tariff-ridden May. Host Charles Payne says traders have probably been selling, building up cash, and planning to buy the dip. But now that the markets are up... is it too late to buy in? Or could it actually be too early? Keith says no - "not at all" - for either. And, he adds that this company looks particularly appealing right now...

Today, I want to talk about concentration. That may strike you as odd, but there is a direct and very profitable link to investing success. You see, we live in an age where we are bombarded by information. Data varies, but some say the average person sees 5,000 to 10,000 ads a day. When I was growing up, that figure was under 100. The internet in all its guises has made the problem worse, especially when it comes to money. Fortunately, there is a solution if you think like a "contrarian."

Millions of investors are complaining about the overwhelmingly negative impact that trade war tantrums are having on their portfolios. Yet, very few do anything about it. Not that they don't want to, mind you. They can't. The digital world we live in makes it nearly impossible to distinguish truly important and potentially very valuable information from trivia data. So, they wind up
Most Americans have never thought twice about intellectual property. But they should. The US Patent & Trade Office estimates that the intellectual property associated with 81 industries added $6.6 trillion to global GDP in 2014, the last year there's data. That same year, IP-intensive industries accounted for a staggering 38% of U.S. GDP, a figure that may approach 50% today thanks to the
Keith isn't mincing words when he chimes in on Varney & Co. with what Alphabet Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOGL)'s latest move means for the beleaguered Chinese telecom giant. Plus, his thoughts on Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) and what today's selloff really signals for savvy investors.
