The Three Simple Steps to Making Your First Million

Last weekend, Atlanta Falcons Owner, Arthur Blank, invited me and my family to the Falcons – Patriots game as his VIP guests. And boy, did he pull out all the stops…

I thought we were just going to sit in the Owner’s box, but we got escorted out to the field through the same tunnel the players use – and we got to watch them warm up, too! In fact, one of the players locked noticed my son wearing his number and stopped to give him a big bear hug. Some of the cheerleaders even came over to take pictures with my kids.

It was one of my best “Dad” moments…

Now I’ve known Arthur for nearly 35 years – long before he became a self-made billionaire and while I was working my way through college (I’ll tell you more about that in a second).

And while it may seem impossible to become a millionaire – it’s actually easy to do.

And it all boils down to these three simple steps

Two Ways to Make Unlimited Cash on Your Next Earnings Trade

Only about 8.5% of the S&P 500 companies have reported third-quarter earnings so far. Of them, 74% beat their estimates, both on their top and bottom lines.

But in my 30 years of trading, I’ve seen plenty of instances like this where even after a good earnings report, the stock gets hammered by 10%, 15% – even 20% – in a single day.

And it happens because of bad guidance given by the Wall Street analysts.

Now they’ll try to tell you which way a stock will move before the announcement comes out…

But the truth is, they don’t know any more than your local mail carrier does.

The good news is… you don’t actually need to know.

You can cash in on any company’s earnings report – good or bad – using two simple strategies.

And both of them offer unlimited cash potential…

Turn the Tables on the Equifax Hackers with These Two Strategies

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that cyber-attacks are on the rise.

After the recent hacks of both Equifax Inc. (EFX) exposing the personal information of 143 million Americans – and Whole Foods Market (AMZN), the theft of 22 million federal employees personal information in 2014, or the Sony Pictures (SNE) hack, and many more…

Everyone is looking into how to best protect themselves and their identity.

As they should, because chances are, you or someone you know has been affected.

But while everyone is busy protecting their identity, there are two moneymaking opportunities that no one’s talking about…

Apple’s iPhone “Problem” Just Became Your Best Profit Opportunity – Here’s Why

Apple’s latest release, the iPhone 8, is a complete failure and could spell disaster for investors… at least, that’s what the talking heads on the financial news networks want you to believe. One of the pundits even said that the short-term prognosis “doesn’t look good” for the stock.

Now it’s true that their latest release isn’t selling as well as it predecessor, the iPhone 7. In fact, the demand for the iPhone 8 was so low that you could still buy phones days after pre-sales started. To give you an idea of just how bad that is, the iPhone 7 sold out minutes after pre-order selling began – setting it an all-time record for Apple.

But that doesn’t mean the company – or the stock – is in trouble. Quite the opposite, actually.

And the media’s “doomsday” prediction is now putting you at risk to miss out on the next triple-digit profit opportunity

Why the “Buyback Drought” Is Bad For Your Bottom Dollar

On Tuesday, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) announced a $20 billion stock share buyback, which simply means they’re planning to buy $20 billion worth of their own stock from the market.

Now investors and traders generally love buybacks because they drive a company’s market value, earnings per share (eps), and dividend payout higher.

But – despite Wal-Mart’s announcement – we’re smack dab in the middle of about a year-long “buyback drought.” In fact, the number of buybacks by S&P 500 companies only reached $120 billion in this year’s second quarter. 

While $120 billion may seem like a large number, it’s down nearly 10% from the first quarter alone and 5.8% from this same period a year ago.

And that could have huge impacts on your portfolio – especially this earnings season.  

Here’s how

The Most Lucrative Way to Invest in Ford Right Now

Ford Motor Company (F) held an investor conference on October 2. Among the many announcements they made, the biggest takeaway is that they are entering into the electronic vehicle market and some impressive sales numbers. They even have a team assembled to speed up the development of these new vehicles.

And since the conference, Ford’s stock is trading above $12.25.

Now while that is a low stock price, let’s face it… nobody buys a single share of a company. Smart traders like you prefer to control larger portions of stock.

And this strategy will give you higher profits with a much lower sticker price

Your Seven-Day Market Forecast – and How to Profit

The mainstream media is focusing on the jobs report, which was released earlier today. But, while this report can give you a general idea of the state of the markets, the numbers are skewed (I’ll tell you why in a moment).

So instead of focusing on a flawed report that doesn’t give you the full picture, the best thing to do is to look at the “Four Corners.”

And here’s what they’re saying
