Friday’s $2 trillion selloff was the most money lost in markets on any day in history – but Keith appeared on Varney to explain why there’s no reason to despair. Quite the opposite – if you understand why pricing power will equal profits down the road, it doesn’t matter if you’re a little early to a party. You’ll still have a great time as an investor.
Today’s column will contain some of the most valuable investing advice you’ll ever read.
But, be forewarned. You won’t see this anywhere else.
What I have to say is much more direct…blunt even.
I’ve chosen to publish this column today because I want every investor who reads it to have a fighting chance in the months ahead at a time when the headlines are hopelessly negative and running for the hills seems like a prudent thing to do.
Not 1 in 1,000,000 investors will come to terms with today’s message, which is too bad considering how much wealth will be created by those few – like you – who do.
Even if they don’t want to believe it.
Microsoft announced Monday that it was buying LinkedIn for a staggering $26.2 billion, and Twitter jumped as high as 4.57% through mid-day trading on nothing more than the hope that the beleaguered media company would be next.
Individual investors and analysts alike believe that the deal will lead to more high profile social media acquisitions.
Don’t bet on it.
Twitter is still a dog and has been for a long time. What’s more, Microsoft has a long history of overpaying for… well… just about everything.
Today we’re going to talk about what’s really driving the Microsoft buy and how to handle Twitter if you’re tempted to pile on.
Investors dropped gun stocks earlier this week like a hot potato following news that pre-purchase FBI background checks dropped 13% in May. The conclusion for many is that the great gun-buying boom is over.
Not so fast. I don’t do politics, so don’t make the mistake of assuming what I am about to say is politically charged. I’m simply going to lay out the facts as they exist today. And, as usual, point you to yet another great investment opportunity.
The company that I recommended the last time we saw this playbook is beating the S&P 500 by 18-to-1 so far.
If you’d like that kind of performance in your portfolio, then read carefully.

When the market shows classic caution signs like the low volumes and overvaluations we’re seeing today, many investors might panic. But it’s not time to flee or sell-be selective instead. Look for big-player companies with international presence and fortress-like balance sheets.
Team Yellen is making news again following her speech last Friday at Harvard University, during which she left the proverbial door open for a summer rate hike. Not surprisingly, most investors have resigned themselves to a bummer of a summer as a result, and the markets have been in a foul mood since.
What if I told you that things didn’t have to be that way?
The vast majority of investors don’t understand that rising rates can be terrific for you and your money if you know what to look for and how to identify the best stocks to buy ahead of time before the markets price a move in.
If you’re one of ’em, don’t beat yourself up too badly. It’s a common misconception.
The next “rate riot” can be a fabulous opportunity, just as it was 16 months ago when I brought three recommendations to your attention under very similar market conditions and circumstances. Anybody who jumped on board has had the opportunity to capture returns of of 41.98% versus only 0.86% from the Dow Jones Industrials over the same time frame.
One of the three stocks remains an especially compelling choice today.
Don’t miss your chance just because the Fed might hike rates.

The Federal Reserve seems as determined as ever to raise interest rates despite a steady stream of weak economic numbers. Here’s Keith’s take on the buying opportunity that could provide in three sectors he’s watching closely.
Editor’s Note: Millions of investors are confused about what’s next for markets, but as usual Keith Fitz-Gerald is here to explain why profitable investing never has to be complicated. Here’s the full transcript of his interview with MoneyMorning.com.
Millions of people are following the waves of demonstrations going on across America right now with feelings that range from disgust to solidarity. But there’s another reason to follow them closely.
A few – a precious few – herald tremendous profit potential.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today.

As the Fed angles towards toward yet another irresponsible rate hike, some retail stocks are taking body blows. Here’s Keith on the perspective far-sighted investors are taking in this situation.
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.
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. (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.
