    Your Tell-Tale “Inflection Point” in Today’s Markets

    Greetings from Baltimore!

    I’m here this week for a conference at the Money Map Press headquarters. But that doesn’t mean I’m taking my eye off the markets for one second.

    Right now they’re continuing at all-time highs, and my sense is the markets are getting ready to make a very important transition that’s going to catch a lot of investors by surprise.

    That’s why I made time to sit down with my friend William “BP” Patalon, who’s a 30-year veteran financial journalist and the founder of Money Morning Private Briefing, to dig into what’s happening and, more importantly, what’s next.

    I realize you couldn’t be at the table with us for the conversation. So today here’s a transcript that’s the next best thing

    Not only did we talk about my market outlook, but we honed in on several key topics you’ll have no trouble recognizing as Total Wealth Tactics and Unstoppable Trends. I even offered some of my favorite recommendations, too.

    Five Total Wealth Principles to Use Today (and Every Day from Now On)

    What McDonald’s Earnings Report Today Is Really Telling You

    McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE:MCD) reported earnings before the bell Wednesday morning, and missed terribly by almost every metric possible. Yet, traders are taking the stock higher, leading many investors to conclude that they should be along for the ride.

    Unless you like Vegas-style odds, that’s not a bet I’d recommend you make.

    Our Total Wealth Principles are built around companies with proven results that are gained by virtue of the fact that they’re tapped into globally unstoppable trends backed by trillions of dollars. McDonald’s is a turnaround situation, and this rally is powered by optimism that is anything but proven.

    That means any dollar you invest in the company at this point in time is disproportionately risky.

    Today, we’ll discuss what analysts aren’t telling you about McDonald’s, and why even before this short-sighted rally the company’s stock still had a long way to fall.

    Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking of investing in McDonald’s – or any fast-food player for that matter.

    I’m Counting on Chaos in the Energy Sector and You Should, Too

    CNBC’s Kate Kelly asked me last January if I was worried about smaller players in the energy sector “just plain going out of business.”

    I replied that not only was I not afraid of the weaker players being swept away, I was counting on it.

    As you might imagine, that raised more than a few eyebrows, considering oil had fallen by 51% from last summer’s highs to only $52/barrel at the time, and investors couldn’t hit the sell button fast enough.

    But I had studied my history carefully and knew something everybody else didn’t – the strong always survive.

    That sounds cliché, but I’m bringing this up for a reason because this tiny nugget of information – this perspective, really – has helped turn ordinary people into millionaires for years. And it will again.

    I want you to be among them.

    Here’s what everybody else is missing.

    The Hottest New Place to Find Income in Q2/2015

    Many investors believe that growth and income are mutually exclusive – that you can’t have one if you want the other. So they don’t give a second thought to high-growth sectors that haven’t traditionally paid out.

    It’s one of the costliest mistakes they can make, for the simple reason that the markets change constantly. Think about it for a moment. Just because a sector hasn’t paid dividends in the past and it hasn’t been attractive to income investors, doesn’t mean that it won’t be in the future.

    Take, for example, Altria Group Inc. (NYSE:MO) and CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE:CNHI). At the time I recommended them to Money Map Report subscribers, they were considered by the broader investing community to be staid investments with very little upside – about as exciting as watching paint dry.

    My take was quite different.

    Despite tremendous increases in regulatory pressure, global growth concerns, and doubts related to the markets themselves, I saw two companies tapped into our Unstoppable Global Trends and, by implication, the higher revenues, higher earnings, and higher stock prices that go with them.

    I knew they were getting ready to grow.

    The fact that most investors took them for granted was pure gravy, because it meant that the shares were cheap compared to the potential they represented. And now anybody who followed along is glad they did. Altria and CNH Industrial have returned 245% and 142%, respectively. Now I’m seeing history getting ready to repeat itself.

    As usual, I’ve identified a few companies that people don’t traditionally think of as income generators to get you started.

    Here’s what you need to know.

    The Most Dangerous Financial Headline I’ve Seen Since 2008

    In my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist, I read newsfeeds from more than 100 sources every day. That helps me keep tabs on the Unstoppable Trends we follow here, what’s going on around the world, and, more importantly, discover opportunities for you that others don’t yet understand or even recognize.

    Given everything going on – ISIS, Russia, Washington, fabricated economic numbers, earnings… you name it – it takes a lot to surprise me. I’m pretty jaded.

    But a headline I recently came across stopped me in my tracks. Cold.

    It was, by far, the single most dangerous story I’ve seen since the Financial Crisis began in 2008. Worse, it merited only a passing mention on Bloomberg. Not a single major U.S. network I’m aware of paid it any meaningful attention.

    They should have.

    What I am about to tell you is proof positive that big banks are not the bastions of stability and financial prowess many believe them to be at this stage of the “recovery.”

    More to the point, big banks may harbor hidden risks and are not, as many analysts believe, the bright spot in this otherwise potentially disappointing earnings season.

    Here’s that headline… and what it means for four bank stocks you may own.

    Five Total Wealth Principles to Use Today (and Every Day from Now On)

    I’ve talked to thousands of investors over the years who are absolutely convinced that they need to understand the market’s most complicated nuances to get ahead.

    In reality, though, success comes down to just five things that I call the Total Wealth Principles.

    Get ’em right and you can make more money with less risk while enjoying a peace of mind that the vast majority of investors will never have. I know that sounds like a tall order, but it’s not. Or, at least, it doesn’t have to be.

    You see, most investors fight the markets instead of going with the flow. And in doing so, they doom themselves to pathetic returns that do nothing but pad Wall Street’s pockets.

    I want you to understand these five Total Wealth Principles because they will help you harness the awesome power of the markets themselves. Then you’ll have the perspective needed to build the financial future and, specifically, the profit potential, that you so richly deserve.

    Especially now, when weak economic data is building yet another wave of panic among the 99% of investors who will never understand what I’m about to share with you.

    Here are five Total Wealth principles to invest by – and pitfalls to avoid.
