There's no shortage of loud distractions out there for investors right now, competing for our precious mental bandwidth. I'm bombarded with it every day, just like you are.
The good news is you can tune all that "stuff" out, because there are really just two things to focus on right now.
First, revenue drives earnings, and earnings drive stock prices - line up one, and the other is almost certain to follow.
Second - and as folks are quickly discovering in my new Straight Line Profits service - knowing how to determine whether a stock should be higher is absolutely critical to your investing success.
I know that sounds obvious, but you'd be amazed at how many investors don't connect the two.
Apple - a company that's already doubled our money - is a great example of what I'm talking about.
