how to profit
New Year's Eve is one of my favorite times of the year.
And not because I look forward to the lavish parties folks like to hold on that final night of the year.
In fact, I don't party at all.
My wife and I have actually established a neat little ritual that lets us say adios to the outgoing year... and to welcome in the new one by setting some goals for the one that's coming in.
We dress up and go out for a late dinner - usually at one of the nice local eateries that we like and support. But before we do, the two of us always sit by the fire and have our most important "family talk" of the year.
Each year, you see, I write an "annual report" that details our achievements for that year. These can include accomplishments at work or in the civic projects we're involved with, great investments we've made, and projects we've completed.
As my wife and I sit by the fire, we review that "report" - and celebrate our accomplishments. And then we establish goals for the New Year - creating an "action plan" whose success or failure we'll review at our "chat" the following New Year's Eve.
I'm sharing this story for a reason: My wife and I have been doing this for more than a decade now. That's long enough to see that this "tradition" has had a positive impact on our lives.
And it points to a habit that I believe every investor should develop.
I'm talking about developing a personal investment plan.
It can help make you a winner. In fact, it can help make you rich.
And today I'm going to show you how...

How to Profit When Billionaires Battle – A Plan
Editor's Note: Shah shared this true "billionaires' brawl" on Dec. 17th. Today, as promised, he'll show you how to make money from it. Take notes...
Sure, the Herbalife game that pitted Bill Ackman against David Einhorn, Dan Loeb, Carl Icahn, and the rest of the billionaire boys' club was a tad bit personal.
It was also professional, very professional.
All the billionaires playing the Herbalife game are professional money managers. They made their mega fortunes in the markets.
But you don't have to be a billionaire to make money in the game.
In fact, you can play the same game and profit nicely by understanding how to follow their lead.
After all, that's what they're doing.
So let's start with someone taking a position, like David Einhorn shorting Herbalife...
How to Collect Killer Profits from this New High-Tech TV
I invested countless hours and thousands of dollars putting together a state-of-the art home theater at our house here in Silicon Valley.
It's so good, in fact, that family members and friends tell my wife and me that it's actually better than going out to the movies.
Just last year, I upgraded the theater space with a new 60-inch plasma technology high-definition TV (HDTV). Watching Blu-ray DVDs on this monitor makes the movies we watch seem so realistic that you duck during explosions and want to reach out and touch the actors that are right there before you.
So, imagine my frustration when I recently learned that the largest and most expensive "appliance" in my home is about to become obsolete.
And the odds are pretty doggone good that you're facing the same dour realization ...
But the news isn't all bad.
Every change, you see, brings new opportunities...
And today I'm going to tell you about a great one - small-cap firm that offers us a killer way to profit from the $3 billion shift to this new type of high-tech TV set ...To continue reading, please click here...
How to Profit from the Supreme Court DNA Ruling
A rather complicated U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc. came out last week on whether life or more specifically DNA can be patented.
I don't want to talk about the science behind the ruling. It gets complicated. Rather, I'd like to simply breakdown how the High Court's decision can affect your wallet.
There are two distinct parts in the unanimous decision and both parts impact the market in different ways.
You may have seen Angelina Jolie in the news lately? She had a preventative double mastectomy because a genetic test indicated she was highly at risk for developing breast cancer.
Well, the Supreme Court ruling actually deals directly with the development of genetic testing.
