Keep More of Your Huge Gains with This Quick Trade
When most investors hear the phrase "hedging," they typically take an exasperated breath, roll their eyes, and think to themselves that it's far too complicated – but it's actually not.
Last week I covered a simple but very effective method to buy highly speculative biotech stocks ahead of critical announcements – and guarantee a safe exit price – even if the stock crashes as a result of poor trials results.
This week I want to expand on the same idea – but instead of focusing on establishing a new position, I want to focus on protecting hard-earned gains on big winners – specifically small-cap stocks ahead of earnings.
Small caps were on a tear in 2013, with the iShares Russell 2000 Index (ETF) (NYSE Arca: IWM) returning 36.81%, compared to SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE Arca: SPY), which returned 29.69% over the same time period.
That's great for investors targeting small caps like we do in Small-Cap Rocket Alert. Already in 2014 we've created three free trades after selling half our positions at 100% plus gains.
If you find yourself in the same enviable position, the next thing you'll want to consider is implementing a strategy to keep those gains from turning into losses – especially as the company comes up on such a potentially disruptive event as earnings… Full Story

Double Your Money with Our "High-Tech GPS"
Early last year, I saw a research study that said nearly 60% of all U.S. workers have a net worth of less than $25,000.
And that means they have no retirement.
From the moment that I saw that research, I knew I had a mission – to help folks reclaim their financial futures by breaking free of Wall Street's self-serving shackles… and creating wealth all on their own.
And I knew there was one avenue to travel – the high-tech highway.
So I developed a roadmap – a set of five rules – that would serve as a kind of "tech-investing GPS." My goal was to help investors identify "double-your-money" tech stocks – and navigate their way to massive high-tech wealth.
Today I'm going to walk you through those rules again, and also give you a bonus – a biotech stock with double-your-money potential.So let's get started...
