This Shipping Company's Stock Is Rising – No Matter What Amazon Does

shipping company

In its quest to become more than just the king of e-commerce, Amazon has set its sights on global shipping and logistics.

Individual investors and Wall Street alike feel this is a poor time to invest in the other major shipping firms.

But that's a misguided notion. In fact, this global shipping company is so competitive and innovative that it'll flourish no matter what Amazon does...

How to Protect Your Biotech Profits from This Legal Limbo

biotech profits

Gilead Sciences Inc.'s Sovaldi was a real breakthrough in the fight against the chronic liver disease hepatitis C (HCV). The condition may show no symptoms for years after initial infection but can slowly become debilitating.

Hepatitis C affects as many as 200 million people worldwide, and before Sovaldi, the approved drug regimen could treat only about 50% of cases and could cause serious side effects. Treatment was generally long - 24 to 48 weeks - and arduous.

Sovaldi, on the other hand, could cure more than 90% of cases in a matter of weeks at a cost, in the United States, of around $94,000. The pricing caused controversy, but the drug proved transformative for HCV patients, their families, and doctors.

Sovaldi also proved a huge windfall for investors when it received FDA approval in 2013 and entered the pharmaceutical marketplace the following year.

So far, Gilead shareholders have seen a 2:1 split, several dividend payouts, and gains of more than 155% since 2013. Sales of Sovaldi and Gilead's other HCV drug, Harvoni, topped $12.5 billion in 2015 alone.

There's just one big, expensive problem...

The "BANG Stocks" Are the Next Group of Profit-Doublers

The market-leading FANG stocks - Facebook, Amazon.com, Netflix, and the former Google, now Alphabet - haven't had a great 2016, with returns in the neighborhood of -15% to just under 5% for the year.

Don't get me wrong - they're still good "holds" for investors wise enough to take the long view and accumulate big, steady gains over a period of years.

Those anemic gains aren't surprising, given that we're all but "officially" in the depths of a bear market.

But... like the old adage goes, "there's always a bull market somewhere," and I believe that's especially true of the basket of stocks I'm about to show you. As uncertainty and volatility rule the markets, these shares have already delivered bona fide breakout gains that most investors would kill for right now.

But you haven't missed out; there's a new technology just hitting its stride right now that could multiply these players' profits exponentially.

And the best part is they're all still available at real bargain prices.

They won't stay that way, though...

Here’s How Investors Get Tricked into Buying Companies Like Valeant

Valeant

While half the trick of investing is figuring out what the consensus thinks, the wisdom of crowds is a myth when it comes to the markets.

Case in point, Valeant Pharmaceuticals has cratered since October 2015, but many investors cling to the belief that the company's problems will be solved.

Some hedge funds have (or had until the stock collapsed) as much as 20% to 30% of their capital in the company, which is extraordinarily reckless.

But it's all in the numbers. The masses are missing these figures, but you don't have to...
