“A surgeon needs a variety of instruments. Investors should use a variety of tools, too,” advises the author of today’s article, who proceeds to highlight a handful of stocks that appear attractive right now based on a tool that he believes individual investors underutilize: the price/cash flow ratio. “Cash flow,” he notes, “attempts to measure the actual money coursing through the arteries and veins of a business.” For these five stocks that may be worth considering based on price to cash flow, CLICK HERE.
“We are in a panic,” declares the author of today’s article, who points to past instances where, as has been the case lately, both treasuries and gold (which tend to be negatively correlated) went up at the same time as evidence. Moreover, he notes that “Each previous panic was dealt with by governments and—more importantly —central banks, including the Chinese central bank, ganging up to stop the rout. However, given the current chill in relations between Washington and Beijing over trade and technology, it is hard to believe that the latest episode will be halted thanks to a cozy cooperation deal between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping.” So what’s an investor to do?

“I don’t want to be that finger-wagging personal finance person who lectures people on how to spend their money. But I can’t help but wonder how many people are over-extending themselves to buy a nice car in lieu of saving for retirement or college for their children or a house down payment or anything else that’s probably more important than the new car smell,” states the author of today’s article in regards to what he sees as a potential “killer to your finances”: car loan debt. Fortunately, he offers up some strategies to consider to mitigate vehicle damage to your budget. For more, CLICK HERE.

There’s currently nowhere near the number of retirement facility living units needed to meet the demand that will exist in the coming decades. As such, the author of today’s article declares that “Investing in the companies…that are trying to accomplish housing units for America’s aging population is going to be on the ground floor of the fastest value producing stock ownership trajectory since Amazon, Google, or any other company coattails to have been ridden in the history of the stock market.” For some top retirement facility stock picks to consider to play this trend, CLICK HERE.
It is often stated that society today has become too litigious – but there’s a profit-making opportunity in all that litigiousness. As the author of today’s article notes, “high-visibility trials don’t kill companies—although they do hurt their share price in the short-run. From McDonald’s to the tobacco space, buying during times of literal trial are often the most profitable” – and he highlights one area of litigation currently forming that could prove to be on par with that once faced by the tobacco industry.

Warren Buffett has called it “probably the single best measure of where valuations stand at any given moment” – and right now that measure (which the author of today’s article calls “The Buffett Yardstick”) is indicating that “investors are paying such a high price they are likely to receive essentially nothing in return over the coming decade, including dividends.” Moreover, while potential returns may be non-existent, potential risk may be at a historic high. Could this be “one of the worst risk-to-reward setups in history”? CLICK HERE.
