Investment Risk Redefined: The Free Trade

position sizing

There's no such thing as a 100% risk-free investment. That said, you can make any investment risk "free" under the right conditions by using one of my favorite tactics: the free trade.

This strategy lets you do three things at once: capture profits of at least 100%, pay for your initial investment, and reduce the risk on your remaining position to almost nothing.

Here's how it works...

Earn 6% When Others Are Losing Money

Money

We're living in crazy economic times.

The race to debase and stimulate has taken us into uncharted financial waters.

Zero interest rate policies (ZIRP) are being replaced with negative interest rate policies (NIRP).

It's an upside-down banking environment that presents some serious challenges.

But investors who are willing to get just a little creative can profit nicely, even as others lose money that just sits there.

And, even better, the shares are trading at an 8% discount now...

The Must-Read Tech Investing Book for 2015

tech investing

When done right, tech investing can be the single best wealth engine ever. For instance, one thousand dollars invested in Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) ten years ago today would now be worth $20,610.

For that reason I was excited to pick up Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World on its Feb. 3 release. I wanted to see what kind of moonshot thinking coauthors Steven Kotler (best-selling author and science journalist) and Dr. Peter H. Diamandis (Chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation) had in store.

To my surprise, the 336-page manifesto - that wasn't explicitly written for tech investors - has more to offer them than any other book due out this year.

I phoned Steven Kotler to talk more about Bold and tech investing in 2015. He talked about how to spot a disruptive technology, his favorite sectors in tech right now, and why two U.S. CEOs are his favorites today...

"From chaos comes opportunity," Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald said in a Tuesday appearance on CNBC Asia's "Street Signs.

To find out how Fitz-Gerald thinks investors should play the Greek debt crisis, watch this video...

What the "Miracle on Ice" Still Teaches Us About Wisdom and Wealth

Exactly 35 years ago this past Sunday, a group of young U.S. hockey players upset their "invincible" Soviet counterparts in a medal-round Olympic hockey game that we still remember today as the "Miracle on Ice."

As all of you know, I'm a big history buff. And I believe it's worth taking the time to study the events of the past - both to appreciate their relevance and to understand the great life lessons they hold for us.

Feb. 22, 1980's "Miracle on Ice" can certainly teach us much about wealth and wisdom.

I'm going to share some of what I learned from that game...

Even with Apple Stock Price at Record Levels, It's Still a Good Time to Buy

20150217-KFG-Varney

The Apple stock price continues to surge to new highs with the company's seemingly bottomless bag of tricks.

But at this point some investors may be wondering if it's too late to jump on the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) bandwagon.After all, AAPL stock gained more than 62% in 2014 and another 16% in the first six weeks of 2015.

Yet Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald thinks buying Apple stock even at these levels is worth serious consideration. In this video, he explains why...

CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI) Stock Is Our Oversold Pick of the Week

CNHI Stock

Money Morning's oversold stock pick of the week is agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI).

Sometimes stocks get beaten down unfairly - but they're actually a great value. The share-price dip then gives investors an amazing entry point into a good long-term investment.

But Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald thinks CNHI stock stands to benefit from two "unstoppable trends," technology and demographics.

The fortunes for CNHI Industrial stock are about to reverse...

Don't Make This Fatal Investment Mistake

what tech stocks to buy today

As I wrote this for you folks last week, my part of the country was bracing for Winter Storm Juno, a blizzard that could bring wind gusts of 65 miles per hour while dumping as much as three feet of snow on some of the biggest cities in the Northeast. (We were spared its brunt, but New England could claim no such good fortune.)

With the early warning systems we have today - giving us the ability to prepare - the human toll from Juno was held to a minimum.

But the proliferation of headlines made me think of another winter storm - one that took place 169 years ago...

And as an investor, it's one that clearly teaches a valuable lesson...

The Alibaba IPO remained the world's top business story for months on end because of the immense amount of wealth it drew in and then created.

This was an early-stages opportunity in a tremendously high-growth business - e-commerce - in China, the world's fastest-growing large economy.
