Triple-Digit Gains and Resilience Aren't the Only Reasons to Own This Company

In my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist, I'm often asked to recommend stocks that will "beat the market" or "withstand a trade war with China" or – as of late – be "recession-proof" – a thought on the minds of many given the prospect of a Fed rate cut.

In investing, there are no sure things, of course, but the stock I've got for you is damn close…

In fact, it's the closest thing out there to a recession-proof stock as I can find. Not only that, but it's a company that's delivered more than 291% in gains on a special move we've made in past.

It's still perfectly positioned for profits, and as you'll see in a second, it likely will be for a long time to come.

Before I tell you what it is, though, let's talk for a moment about why this matters...

This "Sin Stock" Crushed Apple with an 18,000% Gain - Here's Where to Find the Next One

The tech sector is one of the hottest on Wall Street – the tech-heavy Nasdaq is already up 13% on the year – but "sin stocks" are where you'll find the biggest gainers.

In fact, tobacco purveyor Philip Morris International (NYSE: PM) crushed Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) over the last 30 years.

And the "sin" sector is about to get an explosive new catalyst - one that gives you the opportunity to get in early on some of the most potentially explosive companies in the world...

Here's What You Need to Know About Marijuana Mergers

We've seen time and again how "takeover targets" provide the opportunity for truly explosive gains. The right company finds the right buyer, and investors gleefully strap in for a virtually instantaneous double- or triple-digit ride.

Dealmaking in general has done some "exploding" of its own over the past few years. 2018 broke records, with some $3.3 trillion worth of dried ink in place by September. That figure was bolstered by the advent of so-called "megadeals" worth more than $5 billion.

Companies have finally figured out the mother of all corporate no-brainers: If you can't beat 'em… buy 'em.

They've realized there's no point in throwing millions (or billions) of your – scratch that, your shareholders' – dollars at a thorny R&D, tech, or PR problem when you can just ride out, find some smaller company that's already done the work, and… acquire, acquire, acquire.

So, when we come across a frenzy of M&A activity in an already rapidly growing, high-profit sector like legal cannabis, it pays to stop and take a good hard look at what's happening. 

Let's take a look at how powerful a moneymaker marijuana deals could be next year...

Dow Jones Industrial Average Today Continues Historic December Slump as Shutdown Looms

The Dow Jones Industrial Average continues to bleed red as investors pour out of stocks and flock to bonds in the wake of the Federal Reserve's decision to hike interest rates this week.

The Dow hit a 14-month low after shedding another 500 points on Thursday.

This morning, Dow Futures were off another 60 points in premarket hours.

The threat of a U.S. government shutdown is only exacerbating investor fears as well.
