Cash in Now on the “Project Athena” Effect Inc. (AMZN) has been all over the news recently – and for good reason.

And for my Fast Fortune Club members, it’s been the hot topic after I recommended closing the position out for 181% total gains. My next recommendation comes out next Friday, and the profit potential here will shock you…  (Click here to learn more.)

On Tuesday, the stock skyrocketed to a new all-time high of $1,686.94, and as I’m writing, it’s trading over $1,700 – over a 40% gain since the beginning of the year!

Here’s what I mean…

Four Hurdles Gold Must Clear Before You Should Even Touch It

Gold has traditionally been a safe haven for investors concerned about market crashes.

In fact, despite recent stock sell-offs over the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea, investing in gold has been a losing strategy.

Whatever happens, that’s going to continue for the next couple of weeks.

And that’s not the only thing keeping gold prices from going up…

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…

What “the FANGs” Predict is Next for Tech Stocks

Two weeks ago, the technology sector experienced its first significant one-day selloff – and the financial news networks went crazy. Some of the so-called financial experts even said it’s time to get rid of all tech stocks in your portfolio.

But on Tuesday, the sector rallied more than 1%, driving the Dow and S&P 500 to new record highs. And this time, all of those “experts” were saying it’s now the perfect opportunity to buy tech stocks.

Now these are the type of contradictions in the financial press that can be both confusing – and detrimental – to your portfolio.

So forget their media chatter and speculation…

Here’s what the leaders of the pack – “the FANGs” – are predicting…

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…

Here’s When the Stock Market Rally Will End

After the Dow failed to hit the 20,000 mark yesterday, the TV news pundits went crazy.

In a matter of minutes, one station was calling for a huge stock market correction while another not only dismissed it – but said a correction was impossible next year.

Clearly, these talking heads don’t actually know if – or when – the markets will turn.

But there are two very distinct “lines” that do know…

These lines will tell you how strong this market rally is, how much longer it can hold up, and exactly when to get in and out of your trades…

Before the rest of the crowd.

How to “Convert” Your Household Staples into Cash (Starting Today)

It’s that time of year when you can’t help but get smacked in the face with hundreds of holiday discounts on things that you honestly don’t “really need” – like toys, gizmos, and gadgets.

At the same time, prices keep rising on the things you actually do need – like toothpaste, tissue paper, and shampoo.

And that’s exactly how these stores get you… They tempt you with large percentages off the most expensive items you want. Then they jack up the prices of the items you need on a daily basis.

But this isn’t a coincidence. It’s a strategic way for the CEOs to fatten their wallets with your money while you’re left with the latest virtual reality headset – and no ham on the Christmas table.

So here’s how you can take your money back…

One Number Tells You if the “Black Sheep” of Smartphones is Really Making a Comeback

When following the news over these past several weeks, you’d think that Apple and Samsung are the only companies out there making cell phones.

But before the iPhone and Galaxy Note 7 rolled out, there was another provider dominating the smartphone world that’s not quite “dead” yet…

I’m talking about BlackBerry.

Now I know what you’re probably thinking… but hang on a second.

Yes, they’re losing money year after year. And you probably haven’t seen anyone using a BlackBerry in a long time.

But they’re establishing a new identity, with a new source of revenue.

And whether or not they succeed depends on this one number…
