How to Increase Your Profits and Slash Your Losses on Every Trade

I've spent more than 30 years teaching a diverse group of people of all backgrounds and experience levels how to trade profitably, whether they're making a bid for extra income, or financing new purchases, or planning for retirement.

As different as all these folks are, there's one constant they have in common that consistently thwarts the otherwise totally promising trades they've got on.

Emotion… More than any source of volatility that can throw markets into a tailspin, emotion is the killer. It forces people to walk – no, make that run – away from generous upside, or sends them hurtling into the path of steep losses.

And it's all the more tragic because it simply doesn't have to happen. That's right: These events aren't inevitable fate, they're mistakes.

But the good news is there are two steps to take to make sure these kinds of mistakes never happen. Even if you've already fallen victim to emotion in your trades, there's no need to do it again.

This technique is as simple as it is effective...

The Only Investment You Need to Profit from Silicon Valley's Massive Dividend Hikes

Investors are still scared of Apple Inc.'s quarterly report, which contained the company's first earnings miss in 13 years. The stock is currently being punished by skittish analysts and investors, which is a tremendous opportunity in and of itself.

But it's what else these investors are running away from that I want to talk to you about today. It's a lot more than just the potential gains Apple has to offer.

These investors somehow completely missed Apple's massive profits: $10.52 billion, or $1.90 a share, and all in an "off" quarter.

With that truckload of cash, Tim Cook & Co. decided to give shareholders a consolation prize in the form of a stunning 10% dividend hike. It's still early yet, but it's likely that boost will be the tech sector's biggest of the quarter.

Here's the thing… Apple's not alone in this welcome tech trend of huge dividend hikes. So today I'm going to show you how you can buy the very best, biggest dividends in tech… for less than the cost of dinner for two at the Olive Garden.

This is a one-stop income machine that would be good in any market, but is an absolute must-have in this volatility...

Uber IPO Takes a Massive Hit from Major Competitor Today

The Uber IPO took a massive hit from a major competitor today with Apple Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AAPL) announcement it's investing $1 billion in Didi Chuxing, Uber's biggest ride-sharing competitor in China.

Uber appeared to shrug off the news, but the development is troubling for the ride-sharing app.

It's Time to Make a Big Bet "the Other Way" on Apple Stock

After its first quarterly miss in 13 years, the financial press is humming with negative sentiment toward Apple.

To hear them say it, the stock is a pure falling knife.

Now, second-quarter earnings out of Cupertino were less than inspiring, and the miss was a bit wider than anticipated. Global economic growth concerns are looming large, too, given that Apple pulls in 67% of its revenue from outside the United States.

All told, Apple is off about 26% in the past 12 months, and 13% since Apple's earnings miss. But the same experts who are trading Apple down to $92 now were so bullish on the stock they traded it up above $130.

What's more, there's nothing shocking about Apple's filings. Wall Street's chattering classes are reacting as though they've been caught off guard, but no one seriously thought that the massive boom in iPhone 6 sales was going to be a "permanent phenomenon."

So this is just the typical closing of the barn door after the horses have taken off. Remember, these are the same "minds" who never saw the financial crisis coming and who only recently got around to downgrading Exxon Mobil after oil's rebound.

Naturally, this is the perfect time to carefully consider what the experts have to say… and then do the exact opposite.

Here's how to play Apple for the most gains right now...
