People ask me all the time how I knew companies like Shake Shack Inc. (NYSE:SHAK), GoPro Inc. (NYSE:GPRO) and Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) were ripe for a decline when everybody else was intoxicated by their promise.
I took a good hard look at the numbers.
I’d love to be able to tell you that the selling plaguing global markets will be over soon, but I can’t do that. The panic “around the edges” that I wrote to you about a few weeks back has now come front and center.
For millions of investors, this will be catastrophic. They have no idea what to buy or sell and, worse, no idea how to do it. Fortunately, you are not among them.
We talk regularly about what to buy and sell.
Anybody who’s followed along has had the opportunity to bank a string of double-digit returns that positively crush the markets.
On the long side – meaning you buy it – that includes companies like Gilead (NASDAQ:GILD) which subscribers in our paid sister services had the opportunity to follow to 500%+ gains. More recently, on the short side – meaning you sell it – that’s included companies Shake Shack Inc. (NYSE:SHAK), Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) and GoPro Inc. (NasdaqGS:GPRO). Anybody following along should have a massive smile considering those stocks have returned 63%, 62% and 64% respectively.
We also talk about “how.”
Most newsletter advisory services gloss right over that, mainly because they’re written by people who have never traded a day in their lives. So their readers are left high and dry and without a clue what tactics to use for maximum profitability when the going gets tough.
If you can’t change up your game, don’t step on the field.
For most investors, the relationship between investing and profits seems simple enough. You buy low, sell high, and your portfolio grows – or so goes the story.
In reality, success ultimately comes down to defeating something called “Gambler’s Ruin.”
We’re going to talk about that today – what it is, what it means for your money and, most importantly, how to beat it.
It’s a column you won’t want to miss because it’ll give you an edge other investors would pay dearly to have. Not one in 250,000 understands it.
The difference between heartache and success comes down to this concept.
Many investors are convinced that the bull market is over and there’s nothing worth buying at the moment. Worse, they’re selling out and heading for the sidelines using even the slightest market drop as justification for their actions.
I can’t think of a worse mistake.
There are all kinds of ways to hedge volatility these days. No investor need fear a bear market – let alone suffer the ravages of getting financially mauled.
There are all kinds of ways to run flat or down markets to your advantage if you are properly prepared, have the right perspective and a firm grasp on the right Total Wealth Tactics.
So far we’ve talked about specific Total Wealth Tactics like LowBall Orders which you can use to buy the stock you want at exactly the price you’re prepared to pay – ideally at a huge discount. We’ve also covered Position Sizing as a means of limiting risk before you place a trade, Trailing Stops to protect your capital once your “in” and Free Trades to help you maximize profits when it’s time to sell.
Today, I want to introduce a new wrinkle.
I want to show you how to buy more stock without spending more money.
It’s a simple, easy to use tactic that’s ideally suited for today’s markets and, best of all, one that could lead to profits of 2,426% or more. As always, I’ve got a few examples and stocks that can help you put what you learn today into action immediately.
Here’s the Total Wealth Tactic that turns flat or down markets to your advantage.
At times like the present, one question inevitably rises to the very top of the heap…
…what do I do next?
Sadly, millions of investors will never know.
For them, the markets are like a one way street to financial hell. Lacking any sort of cohesive plan, they lurch from one “investment” to another only to doom themselves to sub-par returns.
Fortunately, you’re not among them.
You’re here and a member of the Total Wealth Family. That gives you a tremendous advantage, especially on days like today.
By your actions you have separated yourself from the proverbial herd.
And, most importantly, you have a plan, a focus and an objective – to build Total Wealth no matter what the markets throw your way next.
So let’s tackle that question with an answer that is as powerful as it is simple.
And, while we’re at it, let’s highlight a recommendation that’s uniquely suited for today’s chaotic markets.
EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s been a fabulous year since we launched Total Wealth Research. And, by just about every measure you can think of, it’s a tremendous success.
More than 373,000 savvy investors receive Keith’s e-letter which details the most important trends, tactics, and tips needed to profit that day.
We have a lot to be proud of. For instance:
- Keith’s predicted several key global trends including the rise of the dollar and the failure of the yen – and told you how to profit.
- Keith’s warned you that all was not kosher with several Wall Street darlings including Shake Shack Inc. (NYSE:SHAK), Zoe’s Kitchen Inc. (NYSE:ZOES), and Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) – and helped protect your money. Readers who followed along scored quick double-digit gains of 65%, 42% and 52% respectively in the midst of a down market.
- Keith’s shown you special tactics to help you navigate markets that are far more unsettled and potentially more damaging than Washington wants to admit – and helped pin point the times to use them maximum gains while minimizing risk.
- And, last but not least, Keith’s identified dozens of the world’s most powerful profit plays for Total Wealth readers including many like Smith & Wesson (SWHC) or Raytheon (RTN), which are up double-digits even as markets suffered their first down year since 2008.
Recently, I sat down Keith to discuss what he sees next.
I think you’re going to enjoy what he has to say.
William Dahl, Editor
After several relatively orderly down days that began last Monday with a bang, panic is beginning to creep in around the edges. China’s stock markets unleashed a fresh round of global turmoil Thursday, diving more than 7% in just 30 minutes before breakers kicked in and halted trading. Geopolitical events are not helping matters, with Saudi Air Force planes reportedly striking Iran’s Yemen embassy. Oil, in particular, remains under tremendous pressure.
It’s important that you don’t give in – that’s what Wall Street’s big boys want.
Remember, we’re here to build Total Wealth no matter what the markets throw our way. It’s YOUR money that matters most – how to make it and, just as importantly, how to protect it.
Today we’re going to make sense of the headlines by taking a look at what you’re not hearing at the moment. That way you’ll know how to put the pieces together and the moves you need to make for maximum profits when this mess blows over.
As usual, I’ve got a recommendation you can add to your portfolio immediately to capitalize on chaos.
Over the past 12 months we’ve had several major market corrections and, each time, I’ve counselled you to buy into the madness because history shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that’s the path to enormous profits.
And, each time, I get a blizzard of emails, and this past Monday was no exception…
…but what happens if the markets go down further?
That’s a logical question and one I get a lot.
So I thought we’d answer that today with a quick look at how to combine two Total Wealth Tactics for maximum profits and minimum risk, especially on big down days.
It’s powerful stuff and not just because of the profit potential either.
The real message here is that the tools I’m going to share with you today can give you the confidence boost you need to buy on big down days when everybody else and their mother has their finger on the “sell” button.
As usual, I’ve got a few easy to understand examples so you can put what you learn to work straight away.
Here’s how to protect yourself from a market dislocation – and profit when everybody is losing.
A few years back I got asked what, if anything, I like about penny stocks during a standing room only presentation at an investing conference in Florida.
“You mean aside from the fact that most have no proven track record, little or no assets, hardly any operations history, low prices that make them ripe for manipulation, and products that haven’t been tested in the market place?” I quipped with a smile.
My audience chuckled nervously, not sure at first where I was going with my answer; penny stocks are very popular and the dream of finding the next great Microsoft, Facebook, or Netflix is alive and well in the minds of millions.
But, then, they relaxed when I explained that finding successful penny stock investments is no different than finding other great investing opportunities… if you know what to look for and have the right risk tolerance and perspective.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today for the simple reason that tiny micro-cap companies – penny stocks by any other name – can be fabulously profitable over time when done right.
And that, of course, is the allure.
Here’s what to look for when trying to find the most promising penny stocks.
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?
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.
When I started Total Wealth I promised you that we’d not only cover the top money making opportunities of our time, but also the trades, tips, and tactics needed to maximize your wealth.
Today I want to keep that promise with a look at the Lowball Order.
We’ve talked about lowball orders before. But now, with the markets dancing around new highs and the Fed making noises about a rate hike in December, I think it’s a great time to revisit the subject.
This is a discussion you don’t want to miss because lowball orders are one of the simplest, yet most powerful Total Wealth Tactics available to individual investors today. Plus, they’re a great equalizer.
What I mean by that is you can use lowball orders to take away the advantage normally enjoyed by Wall Street’s biggest, most ruthless traders. And, in the process, buy the stocks you want at exactly the price you want to pay.
I believe you’re gonna be thrilled by how easy this tactic is to use, especially when you understand that you don’t have to sit in front of your computer screen all day to bank the kind of profit potential most people only dream about.
Here’s how to become a Market Master.
There’s nothing like a market swoon when it comes to unleashing the most damaging of all investor behaviors – emotional decision making.
We’ve talked a lot about how catastrophic this can be during our time together with good reason – investors who make knee-jerk decisions damn themselves to abysmal returns.
Today, we’ve going to revisit the subject because emotions are running high right now and millions of investors are at risk of doing something stupid. I don’t want you to be one of them.
What I am about to share with you may make you uncomfortable. I totally get that. In fact, I’m hesitant to bring it up because it could easily be taken out of context.
But I am going to do so anyway for one simple reason – if you understand why Wall Street doesn’t talk about what we’ve going to cover today, then you’ll be perfectly positioned to understand the implications associated with what I want you to do next – and the tactics you’ll need to succeed.
Here’s what you need to know about the tactic that may already be costing you 190% returns.
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 today and, while we’re at it, take a quick look at the trade recommendation I gave you last week to play the situation.
It’s returned 15% in just eight trading sessions and is primed for a whole lot more in the months ahead.
How much more?
Nobody knows for certain, but taking our cue from other winning recommendations like Raytheon, Altria and FleetCor that I’ve recommended over the years under similar circumstances, there’s clearly double or even triple-digit profit potential.
Here’s what you need to know.
When I started Total Wealth I promised that I would give you a blend of tips, tactics, and specific trading ideas to help you maximize your wealth based on the events of the day.
Today I’m going to keep that promise with a look at how to trade beleaguered VW right now, using a brand new Total Wealth Tactic I think you’re going to love.
What I like about this trade is that it’s easy to understand and even easier to implement.
Best of all, the trade I’m going to share with you today has the potential to turn a profit no matter whether the broader markets go up, down, or simply nowhere.
Let’s get started!
