  • Here at Money Morning, our experts' resolve to conduct "due diligence" has landed some huge winners for our Members. Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors, for example, has a deep understanding of new regulations that give investors easier access to "real" oil field investments. That knowledge paid off big when a special project of just that type in Texas - which Moors had personally scouted - struck oil with the first well the team drilled. This advantage of "seeing for yourself" holds just as true for gold. The recent surge of the yellow metal means now's the perfect time to invest in the companies that mine it. In fact, mining stocks - which have been pounded since peaking in mid-March - have been on fire this month. The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSE: GDX), the largest gold miners exchange-traded fund by assets, is up 16%.

Generics may be just copies of brand-name drugs, but they still face a tough approval process. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration makes sure these generics have the same therapeutic effect as name-brand drugs, work in the same time frame, and don't have any additional side effects. "The compound annual growth rate for the generics industry - depending upon which report you read - lies between 11.5% and 15%," Tremblay said.
