This money-making tip comes from our Chief Investment Strategist, Keith Fitz-Gerald:
Part of knowing how to beat the market means knowing where the money will flow. That's why I've found six "Unstoppable Trends" backed by trillions of dollars. Investing in companies that tap into these trends will pay off huge.
More billionaires have been created around these six trends than any other trend not on the list in recorded history.
Here's what you need to know about each of these trends today – starting with the biggest opportunity on the planet right now.
Energy: Analysts almost universally hate the energy sector. To their way of thinking, a whole host of international events are conspiring to further drag down a sector that's already down and out.
But it's showing every sign of approaching the point of "maximum pessimism" – and that should quicken your pulse as an investor.
Demand for oil is accelerating, and multiple data points suggest oil prices are set to rebound even as supply steadily increases.
Demographics: For the first time in history, the number of people aged 65 and older will outnumber children younger than five worldwide by 2020, according to a report by the National Institute of Health & Aging.
In Japan, the future is already here. Its aging population has already had huge economic consequences ranging from diminished productivity to soaring healthcare costs.
This will mean surging profits for medical companies like Becton, Dickinson & Co. (NYSE: BDX).
It will also contribute to a complete global currency realignment, perhaps even breaking several major currencies, including the yen.
Medicine: Healthcare spending in the United States jumped 3.6% in 2014, far outpacing GDP growth for the same period. Total global health spending is expected to rise by an average annual rate of 4% or even 6% by 2017.
The resulting movement in capital will place huge amounts of stress on governments, social security systems, and insurers and developing markets.
I expect trillions of dollars to get transferred worldwide, with several trillion right here in the United States.
