As Chief Investment Strategist, it's my job to help you build life-changing wealth using the specific tips, tactics, and techniques we cover together.
Sometimes that's simple stuff, like how to buy the world's best companies or concentrate your money for maximum results.
Other times, it's a little more complicated, like how to protect and grow your nest egg despite the latest headlines, Washington, or even Wall Street itself.
Today though, we're going to talk about doing both...
Wall Street Wants You Off-Balance; Don't Fall for It
I cannot remember a time in our history where things were more uncertain. Now, maybe I'm the one in firm command of the obvious today, but I suspect you're feeling the same way.
The markets could literally go either way from here.
One day, it's "buy everything because things are going to the moon"; the next day, it's "dump it all because things are going to hell in a handbasket."
I'm not surprised, then, that nearly 200 hedge funds have blown up. Neither am I shocked to find millions of investors have thrown up their hands in frustration.
Thing is… we're not among 'em.
YOU'RE not among 'em.
Two trades – each could make you $100,000 richer. These windfall opportunities were uncovered by a stunning invention, and tomorrow, we're revealing EVERYTHING about it. Click here to RSVP, free of charge, for the presentation.
Don't get me wrong: I feel the angst, just like you do. I read the same headlines you do, and I put my shoes on one after the other, just like you.
The difference is I prefer playing offense all the time because I know that's how you capture humongous profits. You can't do that if you're on the sidelines.
Building life-changing, real world wealth – of the kind most investors can only ever dream about – means going after the profits that make that possible. Risk management is for everything else in the meantime.
To paraphrase my grandfather, who swore up, down, and sideways that he was paraphrasing the great Yogi Berra – who he actually knew – you miss 100% of the swings you never take. Hockey great Wayne Gretzky later said "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take," which echoes the thought that you have to try to succeed.
Either way, the point is the same no matter who said what.
Seizing those opportunities – taking those "shots" – can mean the difference between total wealth and true independence, and being stuck in Wall Street's low-return, low-performance hamster wheel.
It's true: Wall Street wants nothing more than to have you sidelined, missing out on the really big shots, while they shunt your money from one subpar performer to the next – collecting their fees all along the way.
"Buying the index" because you've been led to believe by Wall Street that you can't beat 'em… Well, let's just say you've been sold a bill of goods. "Buy and hold" and "passive investing" are other fairy tales they like to spin.
Have no doubts: With independent research and the right "Total Wealth" tactics, you can most assuredly beat 'em…
This One Pick Proves Our Entire Case
Take Masimo Corp. (NASDAQ: MASI), for example.
I recommended this med-tech firm to my paid subscribers in the Money Map Report, and I shared it with everyone here at Money Morning just last week.
It's up a stunning 191.85% since I recommended it, versus only 26.02% from the S&P 500.
That one, individual stock did a staggering 7.37 times better than "buying the index" and going along for the ride. It's also enough to turn every $10,000 into $21,185 and put an extra $8,585 in your pocket (over just buying the S&P 500) if you're following along.
My point is, you can do this – no matter what Wall Street would have you believe.
I say, don't get mad. Get wealthy.
Stunning NASA technology, reverse-engineered for the stock market: This could help make you $240,000 richer in 2019 – click here to watch it live in action, for free, on Jan. 31.
You know what the game is, so change the rules: Put the odds in your favor with companies like Masimo instead of buying the index and falling for their tired old tricks.
You don't have to stop there, either. There's an entire world out there, packed with opportunities Wall Street will never, ever put on your plate.
To find them, start with our "Unstoppable Trends."
Here's the Key to Unlocking Unimaginable Profits
There are six Unstoppable Trends: Demographics; Scarcity/Allocation; Medicine; Energy; Technology; and War, Terrorism, and Ugliness.
Individually and collectively, they're backed by trillions of dollars that will get spent practically no matter what Washington does next, no matter how Wall Street tries to hijack 'em, and practically no matter what the Fed or headlines say tomorrow.
Limit – and this is important – your investments to the world's best companies and, specifically, to those making "must have" products and services. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is the perfect example, especially with CEO Tim Cook at the controls as the company executes its several-hundred-billion-dollar "pivot" to healthcare technology.
The "nice to haves" – most of which are, not coincidentally, Wall Street darlings – are a waste of your time and money and a risk you don't need. Expensive failures like GoPro Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) come to mind.
(Just imagine being locked in for GPRO's nightmarish 95.25% plunge from $86.97 to $4.13, all while your "money manager" assures you the "rebound" is just ahead. Yikes! Of course, if you were following along with our recommendations, you never put so much as a nickel anywhere near GoPro.)
And finally, pay careful attention to risk management at all times, not just when it's convenient like everybody else does.
That way you'll have the freedom to make an occasional mistake and the confidence to buy into great companies, like Masimo, when I bring 'em to your attention – even if market conditions stink!
Speaking of which, I've been working on something really special lately, and I'm just about ready to spill the beans on some of the most powerful research I've ever released. My publisher will undoubtedly make sure you hear all about it, but in the meantime, I wanted you to hear about it from me first.
I've developed a new way to "smooth out" the volatility that's driving everyone else bananas by reverse-engineering technology initially developed to help NASA spacecraft fly millions of miles through space and land exactly where they planned when they planned. This special system is designed to pinpoint very specific stock price imbalances which can lead to huge profit potential before the markets "catch up."
I'll be revealing this special technology on Jan. 31 at 1 p.m. EST – that's TOMORROW. There's a way to register for my unveiling, too, absolutely FREE of charge. Just click right here to RSVP.
