Eight Stocks You’ll Need to Protect Your Portfolio from North Korea

Kim Jong-Un may think he’s got the world markets in chaos right now, thanks to the latest missile test over Japanese airspace…

But he’s wrong.

In fact, the Dow and Nasdaq are back in the green as of the time of writing, with the S&P 500 only less than 1% away from doing the same.

That’s why dumping your stocks based on world news events is the fastest – and easiest way – of putting your retirement savings at risk.

Instead, you should be buying stocks.

And here’s a list of the eight stocks you’ll need in your portfolio right now…

The Fastest Way to Double Your Money before Labor Day

As hard as it is to believe, Labor Day’s right around the corner.

But while everyone’s planning their unofficial “end-of-summer” barbeques and beach parties…

I’m watching something else.

You see, there’s a very lucrative pattern forming in the stock market right now.

It’s happened in eight of the last 10 years in the weeks leading up to and shortly after the holiday.

It’s got the power to put triple-digit gains in your pocket – in less than two weeks.

And there’s two unique ways to play it – before time runs out…

The Magic Number Warren Buffett Wishes He Knew

Let’s face it…

We all have bad trading days from time to time – that’s part of the game. Even legendary investor Warren Buffett has taken his fair share of hits over the years, including a $2.6 billion loss on International Business Machines Corp (IBM) in 2016.

But the most successful traders and investors in the world would tell you, it’s not about that one losing trade – or even that one home runner…

It’s about increasing the probability of your winners over the long term.

And believe me – you don’t need to have “Warren Buffett money” to do so.

In fact, here is the only “magic number” you need to pave the way for a lifetime of profits

Analysts are Still Bullish on Snap – Here’s Why They’re Wrong

Snap Inc. (SNAP) broke headlines again yesterday – for all the wrong reasons.

And now, some analysts are actually suggesting that it’s the perfect buying opportunity – despite three of SNAP’s executives selling off nearly $10 million worth of the stock on Monday.

But before you go loading up on “cheap” shares…

Here’s what my tools are saying could happen in four months.

Two Stock Charts You Need Before Placing Your Next Trade

You raised an interesting issue this week: are stock charts really required to be a successful trader… or are they just a waste of your time.

Here’s the deal…

While there are some charts out there that look fancy – they don’t actually provide any useful information that you can use to time your trades.

But there are others that do – and are crucial in timing your entries and exits.  

Here are the only two charts you really need

How to Play the U.S. Dollar – Wherever It Goes From Here

A couple weeks ago, I predicted that the U.S. dollar would become even more volatile than what we were seeing at that time.

And thanks, in part, to the escalating situation with North Korea – that’s exactly what’s happening right now.

This is important to pay attention to because this volatility can affect anything from the price you pay for a gallon of milk to the costs of getting home repairs done.  

On top of that, it helps The Fed decide if and when to raise interest rates – which can also impact your bank and retirement accounts.

But it doesn’t have to hurt you…

All you need to know is how to play the U.S. dollar – no matter where it goes from here.

The Best Eight Stocks to Own Amid North Korea Fears

It may be hard to feel at ease right now with the rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea – and rightfully so. This isn’t something we can expect to go away anytime soon. And we’re not likely see a change in pace of the ’round-the-clock breaking news alerts, either…especially after the recent drop in the stock market.

But despite the gravity of this situation, I’d caution against making any significant investing and trading decisions based on the news cycles. That’s actually the fastest – and most surefire way – of putting your retirement savings at risk.

And that’s the last thing I want to happen to you.

So today, I created a list for you of the eight stocks you’ll want to hedge against North Korea market fears – and the best way to play them.

Now let’s get started…

This Investing “Advice” for Trump’s Tax Plans Could Destroy Your Portfolio

President Trump has been saying for some time that he’s going to implement the largest overhaul and biggest tax cut in the history of the United States. In fact, the White House released their aggressive plans to push Trump’s tax reform bill through the House as early as October – and clear the Senate by the end of November.

This has largely been the reason the stock market has risen to all-time highs, with the Dow breaking 22,000 on Wednesday. But it’s also caused a lot of media chatter this week, with some of the so-called “experts” calling for a market crash in two weeks.

Now they’re entitiled to their own predictions, of course…

But the latest “advice” they’re giving to anyone who will listen is downright disturbing – and could wipe out all of the profits you’ve made this year…

The Best “Insurance” You Can Add to Your Portfolio Right Now

I spent all of Monday with my wife and kids riding out Tropical Storm Emily. If you live in Southwest Florida like I do, you probably did too – I hope your family and your property are safe.

Now this storm was nothing compared to last year’s historical Hurricane Hermine, which was the first one to make landfall in 11 years…

But there’s one key lesson from both.

And with an even worse “storm” brewing right now – one that will affect all of us no matter where we live…

It’s absolutely crucial that you take the next two minutes to read this.
