Why “Buy-and-Hold” Is the Worst Path to Retirement

No matter if you have a mutual fund account, an IRA, or an employer-sponsored retirement account, you’ve probably been told at some point in time: put your money in for the long term in order to build your wealth.

This mirrors the idea that contributing a specific percentage or dollar amount of your paycheck during your working years will set you up for a nice retirement – and it’s the single most common piece of investment advice out there.

But here’s my concern…

The amount of money and time you need to build your wealth depends on your own lifestyle and desires. There’s no “magic number” for you to reach. Your wealth is what you want it to be.

Now I’m not disputing that you can make money over the long haul…

I’m saying there’s a much faster – and much easier – way to finally get that vacation house you’ve always dreamed of.

And here’s how…

The Eternal “Safe Haven” Wall Street is Hiding from You

We need to talk about something…

You see, there’s been a growing trend in the stock market that Wall Street doesn’t want you to know about.

That’s because this could prove to be the biggest investment opportunity for the next three decades.

And with the Dow finally crossing the 20,000 mark today, the Wall Street billionaires are going to work even harder to keep it secret…

So they can keep all the profits to themselves.

Unfortunately for them, I don’t agree with what they’re doing.

So I’m going to tell you exactly what “safe haven” they’re hiding.

And it’s not gold…

How to Play Apple This Quarter

When it comes to the financial press, I tend to hit the mute button… until I catch a headline about a stock or sector that’s actually worth my time.

So yesterday, I turned the volume up when the pundits started talking about Apple, Inc. (AAPL) and the recent leaks about its latest smartphone, the iPhone 8.

Inevitably, the “topic du jour” is now the stock and whether its run in the stock market is over – or revving up to climb even higher this year.

But the numbers don’t lie – and here’s what they’re predicting…

Why You Shouldn’t Short Health Care Stocks Ahead of Trump’s Inauguration

Since last month, investors and traders have “doubled their bets” on falling health care stock prices after Trump takes office. In the last week of December alone, short interest on the sector rose by nearly $2 billion.

Now this is largely because of Trump’s promise to repeal Obamacare – and the steps his incoming administration have already taken.

But I’m going to show you why selling off your health care holdings right now isn’t such a good idea…

And a much better way to profit.

The One Reason Faraday Will Not Become the Next Tesla

For the first time in recent years, I missed the annual Consumer Electronics Show that was held in Las Vegas last weekend. In case you’ve never heard of this or never been, it’s the largest consumer electronics and technology tradeshow in the world that showcases over 3,800 companies.

This year, the big “reveal” was the Faraday Future FF91 electronic car. It didn’t fail to impress either, with the company securing over 64,000 pre-orders.

And this has led to some speculation that this small startup company could soon become a dominant player in the automotive industry.

In fact, some of the media pundits have already predicted Faraday becoming “the next Tesla.” But the patterns say otherwise…

Here’s why Tesla will stay number one…

Over the past couple days, you’ve been asking a lot of questions about one, specific topic: Inauguration Day.

This “New Year’s Resolution” Could Double Your Income by February 1

Every January, without fail, the TV news networks run endless stories on the best New Year’s resolutions to make. You probably saw at least one today.

At the top of those lists is “make more money.” And by February, at least 80% of people have already failed.

Now that’s not because making more money is impossible to do… it’s not.
