“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.
When it comes to energy investing, midstream may be the place to be right now – or, to be more exact, master limited partnerships with midstream exposure. As today’s article notes, “MLPs with midstream exposure are thriving this year”, and “with the Federal Reserve poised to potentially lower interest rates, high-yield assets such as MLPs could receive renewed attention from income investors.” For one specific exchange traded fund to consider for exposure to this trend, 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.

For these stocks that may be worthy of consideration, CLICK HERE.
When predicting where the stock market will go, the author of today’s article acknowledges that “It’s easy to see what’s happening now, compare that with what has happened recently, decide you see a trend and conclude that the trend will continue.” He further notes, however, that “When you do that, you’re sometimes correct. And you’re sometimes wrong. Oh, so very wrong.” He proceeds to outline several examples illustrating why investors should expect the unexpected – and what he sees as the best method for investing in the face of the unknown.

Some analysts are predicting a shortfall in the supply of copper relative to global demand come 2021, and, given the critical role copper plays in the trend towards mass electrification, the author of today’s article states that “We could be looking at another commodities super-cycle, with the red metal leading the way.” For more on the opportunity this presents (including what the author singles out as his favorite play for exposure to copper), as well as the author’s insights on several current issues related to gold (including whether bitcoin will come to replace gold in people’s portfolios and the potential for attaining “peak gold”), CLICK HERE.
A recreational boat dealer, a small bank, and a manufacturer of tow trucks and car carriers with “no following on Wall Street whatsoever” are among the five stocks highlighted in today’s article as possible “undiscovered gems”. More specifically, each of these five picks is from the realm of small stocks (with the author noting that “Your odds of finding an undiscovered gem are higher” in this space) and the recipient of scant analyst coverage.
