I raised more than a few eyebrows back in August 2014 when I told you that I wouldn’t touch GoPro Inc. (NasdaqGS:GPRO)’s IPO with a 10-foot selfie stick. And, I lit up the techno-cognescenti when I noted that the stock would ultimately fall so low as to be valuable only as a takeover target because the GoPro couldn’t stand on its own merits.
Yesterday the stock jumped 11.49% in a single session on rumors that Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) may buy the beleaguered tech darling leading millions of investors to wonder if they should jump on the bandwagon, too.
In a word – nope.
Today we’re going to talk about why GoPro remains a risk you don’t want or more specifically need in your portfolio ahead of a rate hike.
And, I’ll tell you what you want to buy instead.

I’ve got a contrarian streak in me a mile wide. Even so, I’m not ready to recommend you buy into energy any time soon.
I believe prices may dip into the low $20 a barrel range before the current bout of selling is done.
There’s a lot of discussion about what this means for the markets at the moment. If you look at the past few days of trading, clearly you’d be correct in thinking this is a short-term disaster.
But longer term, low oil prices are an entirely different picture.
Investors who understand how to play $20 a barrel oil will be way ahead in a game others don’t yet understand is being played. Let alone one that’s already in its “7th inning.”
That’s what we’re going to talk about today and, as usual, I’ve got a specific recommendation for you.
Here’s the best way to play oil prices unlike any you’ve seen this century.

As hard as it is to believe, we’re headed full speed into the end of 2015. That means now’s a perfect time to discuss one of the most powerful Total Wealth Tactics of all.
Before I tell you what it is though, let me say that the tactic we’re going to discuss today is something many investors believe they know a lot about. Yet, in practice, very few actually get right.
That’s sad because “it” can significantly boost your returns and reduce your losses – all while taking less than 90 seconds of your time.
Ready to get started?
More than 30,000 diplomats have converged on Paris, France for what is being called “one of the most important international conferences in history.”
“Tackling climate change is a shared mission for mankind,” said China’s President Xi Jinping, the head of the world’s largest carbon emitter. “All eyes are now on Paris.”
“If we act here, if we act now,” President Obama added, “if we place our short-term interests over air our young people will breathe… it won’t be too late for them.”
“Here in Paris,” French President Hollande declared, “we will decide on the very future of the planet.”
Perhaps I’m too skeptical for my own good, but that’s very similar to what world leaders said in 1997 just before the Kyoto Accords. And those have proven to be little more than lip service.
Even if 100% of the Kyoto requirements are followed by 100% of the 192 countries that signed them, they will deliver less than 0.020 C in cooling by 2050 despite costing hundreds of billions of dollars.
Is that worth it?
I have no idea – I’m not a scientific expert.
But I do know beyond any shadow of a doubt that trillions of dollars are going to get set in motion no matter what happens in La Ville Lumière.
Here’s what that means for your money and how you can cash in.

My good friend Dennis, a Seattle based TV studio producer, pulled me aside Monday after I’d wrapped up Monday’s appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co to voice a sentiment I hear a lot these days:
…I’m almost 60 and scared to death by what’s happening today – terrorists, a looming rate hike, slowing earnings, global growth cratering.
He rattled off half a dozen items bugging him, counting each on his fingers. Then, he leaned in and quietly said…
…it makes me want to sell it all.
If you’re like Dennis, you’re not alone.
Investors pulled almost $40 billion from equity markets last quarter alone, according to Morningstar. That’s nearly 50% of everything taken out for all of 2015.
But here’s the thing… no matter how grim the global situation is or even becomes, indiscriminately selling is exactly what you don’t want to do.
It’s one of the worst possible decisions any investor can make and, ultimately, one that will cost investors billions in lost profits.
Today we’re going to talk about why and, because this is not a simple subject, I’m going to prove it to you, too.

Millions of investors believe they need to invest in retail stocks because they’re a mirror for the consumer driven economy we live in. That used to be true, but no more.
One of our six Unstoppable Trends has completely derailed the premise.
Before I tell you which one and why, though, please know that what I am about to share with you is very simple. Get the equation right and it could be like backing Wal-Mart in 1994 just before it roared to 600% gains while laying waste to traditional “Mom n’ Pop” stores.
Get it wrong, and you’re more likely to back into something that’s the modern-day equivalent of Sears – a once proud brand that’s entered a death spiral and fallen by 66% so far despite legendary bull market run off 2009 lows.
Here’s the shift that matters most when it comes to your money.
Whenever I talk about this at presentations around the world, people short circuit.
Today we need to have one of the frankest discussions we’ve had to date – what terrorism means for the markets and your money.
It’s not a pleasant topic by any stretch of the imagination and the horrific events in Paris last Friday evening make that abundantly clear. Yet, it’s necessary simply because War, Terrorism and Ugliness are growth industries.
Whether we agree or not is moot.
My job as Chief Investment Strategist is to guide you through what’s happening, help you protect your money, and insulate your financial future from anything or anybody who threatens it.
No hype, no conspiracies, and no nonsense.
