Last month, for the first time in 21 years, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has announced it is setting its iconic “Doomsday Clock” to a mere three minutes to midnight, approaching levels not seen since the early stages of the …
What I am about to share with you today won’t win me any friends on Wall Street. But, that’s how it goes.
This is important information to you as an investor and that’s why you need to know what it’s telling you. So I’m happy to take my lumps and show it to you anyway…
Right now we’re in the midst of the first “earnings season” in 2015, with publicly traded companies reporting their latest quarterly results – in this case from Q4/2014.
Millions of investors are understandably anxious and confused. Companies take off like a rocket on good numbers or get a multi-billion-dollar haircut on bad ones.
Thing is… Wall Street likes it that way. The more confused you are, the more profitable they are because investors who chase innuendo tend to trade more (and generate bigger commissions).
That said, it’s NOT a waste of time if you know how to sort out the information that actually matters and what it says about your money.
Here’s what you need to know.

Just over two months ago I unceremoniously kicked McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE:MCD) off my “buy” list noting that for the first time in more than 10 years that the company was no longer tapped into any of our globally “unstoppable trends.” Now, with the stock down another 7% since then, the Board has just kicked CEO Don Thompson off the menu, too.
Is this move enough to put Mickey D’s back on my list?
That’s a great question. It’s not for nothing that the stock is practically investment royalty. It’s established, it’s widely held, and it returned $6.4 billion to shareholders last year.
It’s also a logical question because a change in senior management can be a powerful catalyst for higher returns. ABB, for example, took off on a 1.359% run in the five years after Jurgen Dormann took over for former CEO Joergen Centerman. Similarly, Yahoo! Inc. has returned more than 190% since former Google exec Marissa Mayer took the reins and launched a series of bold acquisitions in the summer of 2012.
McDonald’s stock jumped 5% the day Thompson hit the pavement after a 25-year career and less than two years as CEO, so investors are naturally giving the stock a second look. They’re all wondering – “Is this the day McDonald’s turns things around?”
I’m getting quite a few questions lately regarding one my favorite companies, Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (OTC:EKSO).
As you know, the company is tied into one of the most dynamic Total Wealth Trends of all – and potentially the most profitable, too – Human Augmentation.
So I thought we’d revisit EKSO and, in the process, update some of the interesting stuff that’s going on.
But first, I owe you an apology.
I totally underestimated the company’s potential.
Let me show you why – and my new price per share.
Many investors expect “Super” Mario Draghi’s recently announced €1.2 trillion stimulus program to produce big market gains just like the Fed’s QE did here in the United States.
What they’re missing is that not all companies are going to benefit. In fact, the vast majority won’t.
How do you know if the one you want to buy is one of ’em?
…because it’s tied into one or more of the six unstoppable trends we’re following.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today.

On the surface, this chart for railroad titan CSX isn’t that exciting. You’ll see the stock rising 45% over an eight-month period and then plummeting 53% right after. But let’s look a little closer at what’s happening behind the scenes. …

With the S&P 500 at all-time highs and Americans having spent more than $600 billion on Christmas, what’s not to love about the “New Economy?” According to the vast majority of Americans… plenty. In recent CNN exit polls, 78% of …
Most investors focus exclusively on buying stocks in an attempt to capture huge returns. That’s too bad, because it means they restrict themselves to half the opportunities available to them.
I bring this up because markets move up AND down, which means there is plenty of profit potential to be had in both directions.
George Soros, for instance, is reported to have made $1 billion in a single trade that famously almost broke the Bank of England in 1992.
John Paulson made billions from the housing crisis when it hit by betting against the grain.
Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners fame is famous for bucking conventional wisdom on seemingly-mighty companies and laughing all the way to the bank.
That’s why shorting is one of the first Total Wealth tactics I shared with you.
Obviously, shorting stocks isn’t for everybody – it takes a lot of guts and more than a little conviction to do it profitably. Not to mention a whole lot of discipline. But done right, it can really boost your profits.
Here’s how to profit from the five scariest stocks on Wall Street… without owning them.
