New York is looking to tweak the laws, considering home delivery and increasing the list of qualifying conditions.

Do Your Holiday Shopping on Wall Street's Dime This Year… and Forever

These kinds of encounters really make my day.

We've seen how trading is perfect for setting up extra regular income, but I want to share this one with you because it really drives home how folks can use trading to pocket a timely windfall… at a time when we could all use some extra money. 

I was getting some work done on my house, and one of the construction guys asked me what I do for a living. Naturally, I told him that I'd been working for nearly 30 years as a trading coach for everyday investors, and that my specialty was turning people on to low-cost, low-risk, high-profit trades.

He mentioned that the stock market was going ballistic, of course, and asked me how a guy like him might cash in on these all-time highs and pull in a little more cash for the holidays.

In less than 10 minutes, I'd taught him exactly what I'm going to teach you...

These Picks Will Pay You a Different Kind of Dividend

If the "official" start of this holiday shopping season is any indication, this year will be one for the history books.

From Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday, records were smashed. More than $3 billion was spent online, an increase of nearly 12% from the year before.

Two of e-commerce's heaviest hitters reported large mobile crowds: Amazon reported that 70% of its Thanksgiving Day web traffic was mobile, while Target pegged its mobile traffic at 60%, suggesting that a lot of folks were "multitasking" while eating turkey and watching football (in my case, the Pittsburgh Steelers).

Most importantly, spending patterns confirmed our very bullish outlook on e-commerce in general and mobile retail in particular; shoppers on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday forked over more than $1.1 billion each day, via smartphones mostly.

We've been recommending profitable e-commerce and mobile plays like Apple Inc. and PayPal Inc. to my Private Briefing readers since soon after we started publishing in 2011. I "walk the walk and talk the talk," so naturally I'm more than comfortable spending money online, whether I'm on a PC or a smartphone.

But when it comes to planning how I spend, I take a decidedly low-tech approach. Every holiday season, you'll find me at my kitchen table with a very un-cutting-edge pen and paper, writing out a list of gifts I'd like to get my loved ones. I've done it for years, ever since I was a kid.

And, since I love making money as much as the next guy, I like to pick gifts that I'm sure will "keep on giving" to my friends and relatives.

I'm talking about some of the most powerful and successful money-making ideas of all time, of course...

Will Healthcare Stocks Rise Under Trump?

Whether healthcare stocks rise under Donald Trump depends on how he carves up Obamacare.

Here's what reform will mean for healthcare stocks in 2017...
