Of the best defense stocks for 2015, the one poised for the biggest gains may well be this small-cap.

Stocks to buy

Berkshire Hathaway B Stock "Better than Any Mutual Fund" (BRK.B)

The search for top performers never ends – and that's especially true when the markets are stumbling.

That why Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald likes Berkshire Hathaway B stock (NYSE: BRK.B) right now.

"It's not cheap in dollar terms, but it's cheap in terms of potential," Fitz-Gerald said. He also likes an energy stock that he says is "cheap and ready to buy."

Oil Prices

These Shale Oil Stocks Will Survive Lower Crude Prices

With the price of crude oil plummeting 14% last week and the prospects for a glut running high, most investors are running away from all shale oil stocks now.

Because shale oil costs more to produce than conventional oil, investors have good reason to worry about the impact of lower crude oil prices on shale oil stocks.

But Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald says selling everything isn't the answer. In fact, he says investors should be looking for the long-term winners.

Auto industry

Why Toyota (NYSE:TM) Keeps Detroit Up at Night

Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM) has a new vehicle that should worry every Detroit automaker.

That's the warning Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald delivered on a Tuesday appearance on FOX Business "Varney & Co." Fitz-Gerald, a seasoned market analyst with 33 years of experience, said this Toyota stock catalyst is a hydrogen-powered car called the Mirai.

The Best Investments to Profit from Japan's Money Printing

As long as Japan's government insists on money printing to try to stimulate its long-moribund economy, opportunities will abound.

The only question is how to find the best investments. Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who lives part of the year in Japan, shared several ideas with Stuart Varney on a Monday appearance on FOX Business' "Varney & Co."

In this video, Fitz-Gerald talks about how American investors can profit from what's happening in Japan, and what he considers the best investments...

Global markets

Stock Markets Will Win the Central Bank "Race to the Bottom"

While the U.S. Federal Reserve has begun to reverse its easy money policies, other central banks around the world increasingly see such policies as an economic elixir.

And that will serve as fuel for the world's stock markets, says Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald.

As other central banks start using those same policies, the advantage is lost – unless they ramp up the easing even more. And all that new money will flow directly to the stock markets.

In this video, Fitz-Gerald explains how investors can profit from this situation.

The Fed

FOMC Meeting: "It's All About Fairy Dust"

With the stock markets still a little jittery after this month's mini-correction, the statements that come out of this week's FOMC meeting (Federal Open Market Committee) will be even more cautious than usual.

"The Fed is all about fairy dust," Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald said in a Wednesday appearance on CNBC World, noting that the Fed really doesn't want to upset the markets right now.
