    Analysts Get It Wrong Again and You’ve Got Another Double Digit Opportunity

    There's an old joke on Wall Street that makes the rounds every now and again... ...God invented analysts to make weather forecasters look good. Meant as a tongue in cheek poke at the complexity of financial markets, it's unfortunately all too true. Conventional analysts are often blind to new developments, changes in earnings, evolving consumer habits, and more. Worse, like ostriches,

    Morgan Stanley Analysts Join Us on the GoPro Bandwagon

    "Better late than never" goes the old expression. Morgan Stanley analysts cut their target price for GoPro shares by -43.5% from $62 a share to $35 a share Tuesday... after the stock had already fallen 67% from its high of $93.85/share in October 2014. To say they're in firm command of the obvious is an understatement. Still, millions of investors were surprised and the stock got

    VW: Don’t Go Bottom Fishing Yet

    Preconditioned to "buy the dips" and capitalize on special situations, millions of investors have picked up shares in Volkswagen with the hope of making a killing on the rebound. I think that's a mistake. No doubt special situations can create huge profits, but what's happening now with VW is very different and poses special risks other "turnarounds" don't. We're going to talk about that

    The #1 Reason to Love a Government Shutdown – Double-Digit Profits

    Sigh... we stand yet again on the verge of another government shutdown. This time the bickering centers on funding related to Planned Parenthood which has been linked to the appalling sales of fetal body parts in recent months, while other legislators insist on a planned multi-billion dollar tax hike for private equity managers. What could possibly go wrong - other than everything?! The way

    Big Double Digit Returns Hiding in Plain Sight

    Entirely too many investors lurch from one stock to another in a desperate search for higher returns. While a precious few get lucky, the majority doom themselves to abysmal returns. Wall Street, of course, loves this, because this kind of behavior generates huge commissions and gives professional traders a self-replenishing source of fuel... your money. Thankfully, it doesn't have to be

    Four Black Monday Takeaways Wall Street Hopes ETF Investors Never Understand

    Exchange-traded funds - ETFs for short - are billed as among the most investor-friendly products ever created, thanks to low fees, intra-day pricing, and unprecedented flexibility versus the mutual funds they've ostensibly "replaced." In reality, ETFs are yet another Wall Street creation designed to separate you from your money. Proponents will undoubtedly cry foul as will many Wall Street

    Stocks Go Nuts But the Question Remains – Will the Rally Stick?

    On the heels of Monday's vicious 1,000+ point "dip" and Wednesday's subsequent 619 point "rip " higher, many investors are asking one question - will the rally stick? The media certainly seems to think so: ...Relief Descends on US Stock Market with Best Rally Since 2011 - Bloomberg ...Dow, S&P Enjoy Biggest Percentage Gains in Four Years - MarketWatch ...Chinese Stock Index Jumps

    Three Ways to Profit from a Market Correction

    When I started Total Wealth I promised you that it would be a two-way street, meaning that information would flow both directions - from me to you and from you to me. Today I want keep that promise by answering a question from J. Stockhausen that's on a lot of people's mind at the moment... ...will the markets "crash" and what investments can you use to take advantage of the chaos? It's

    What Twitter’s Insider Buys Really Tell You

    I committed the equivalent of financial heresy in late December 2013 and again in January 2015 when I said Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) was a bug in search of a windshield and recommended shorting the stock. The blogosphere went nuts and I was taken to task by Twitter-lievers. Since then the stock has fallen 63.31% from a high of $74.73 to a low of $27.04. It's rebounded slightly in recent trading and

    China’s Doing Yellen’s Job and Creating a Trillion Dollar Profit Pivot

    Despite what the markets seem to think and many news sources would have you believe, China's move to devalue the yuan by 1.9% is not an act of desperation intended to prop up a failing economy. It's not a surprise. And, it sure as heck is not the end of the financial universe as we know it. Instead, it's a brilliant move that singlehandedly changes the investing landscape and creates a

    Apple’s Down Five Days in a Row: Here’s What to Do Now

    Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) lost another 3.2% yesterday on more than double the usual volume, making many investors wonder if it's time to throw in the proverbial towel. It finished the day down 14% from the $133 a share high it set in February, and paper losses now tally $133.4 billion. To put that in perspective, Apple's just lost more than McDonald's, which carries a $95 billion market cap,

    This “Hype Stock” May Be an Even Better Short than SHAK or TWTR

    I've brought several high-profile "shorts" to your attention since we started Total Wealth, and I hope you've racked up some big gains by following along. First, there was Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) (here). It has fallen 40% from the recent highs of $52/share (in April) and was down 14% this morning after earnings, now trading around $31/share. This trade still has a long way to go, given how

    This Media Darling Is Worth 98.22% Less than Goldman Sachs Thinks

    CNBC's Sara Eisen asked me last Tuesday if I was still bearish on one of Wall Street's favorite stocks, even after it had already fallen more than 45% since I warned you last May that it was a bad investment. "You know this environment, Keith," she told me. "People are paying up for growth companies. The bulls would say this has great brand presence, great brand awareness, and is continuing a

    Gold’s at a Five-Year Low: Here’s What to Do

    Gold prices crashed Monday as panicked sellers drove the yellow metal to its lowest level since 2002 before recovering to a five-year low. More significantly, they broke the $1,130/oz "floor" which had previously been regarded as a solid support level - a key indicator to me that the downdraft wasn't over. So I wasn't surprised to see gold prices finish yesterday's U.S. trading session
