Chances Are Every Dollar You'll Make in 2019 Will Come from These

Most traders and market "experts" see gloomy times to come for U.S. stocks.

But not Keith Fitz-Gerald.

The Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist sees big opportunities for investors here in the New Year – thanks to a stock market "thesis" I've seen nowhere else.

Keith's identified three big catalysts for higher stock prices. And he's created an easy-to-use "profile" to help him target the next big stock market winners – the kind of winners that can make folks rich.

Here's an edited transcript of my talk with this down-in-the-trenches veteran of the global-investing boom...

For You: a High-Profit "Present" to Celebrate the Bull Market's Big Milestone

We'd lived in two places in Connecticut and another in a Pittsburgh suburb – renting in all three places – when my folks finally were able to buy their first house, a redbrick colonial in a Steel City suburb known as Murrysville.

It was late 1967 – my Mom was expecting my youngest sister, Carol Ann – and we moved in just before the Christmas holidays.

Because the house was finished late in the year, the yard wasn't fully graded and seeded. So at the bottom of the stone driveway that snaked down from the street and wrapped around the back of the house to form a decent-sized parking pad was a decent-sized dirt pile.

To the seven-year-old mind, that dirt pile seemed to reach for the very clouds above.

The earthen pinnacle conjured images of Mt. Everest, which I'd read about in school. The dirt clogs that helped comprise its bulk were great for throwing at enemy neighbors. The soil-and-clay mound (and the muddy pool beside it) gave me a "Guns of Navarone-ish" backdrop for my olive-drab-plastic Marx Battleground tanks and army men – and a stage for reenacting the D-Day Invasion.

And when us kids wanted to trade places with those plastic soldiers – and "be" the combatants ourselves – that dirt hill served as the ultimate stage for rounds of "King of the Hill."

You know the game, of course. One person climbs to that peak – and tries to stay there by fending off the energetic shoves or aggressive yanks of those who would be king.

In the world of kid-dom, this was the ultimate kind of combat: The winner stood tall, ready to take on all comers; the loser endured an ignominious tumble to the bottom.

As memories go, this is a timely one to share with all of you.

And here's why: Today, at 4 p.m. EDT, barring an extraordinarily bearish slap from an unforeseen threat, U.S. investors will witness the crowning of a new "King of the Hill."

You see, by the time the market closes today, the current bull market will dethrone its predecessor – the 114-month 1990 to 2000 bull market – as the longest bull run of all time.

I'm really excited about what's coming next...

Here's How to Beat the May "Market Blues" Right Now

May is not known for being the kindest month to the markets.

And that sentiment is ringing true – as May 1 came and went ridden with volatility.

Now, there's a saying that has been passed down for years: "Sell in May and go away."

But the truth is, when you sit on the sidelines, you typically miss the biggest profit opportunities.

That's why today, I'm going to give you a new set of tools that will help you master your May trades.

Here's everything you need to know...


Beat These Volatile Markets with This One Move

Many investors were glad to close the books on the first quarter. It's easy to see why.

The S&P 500 dropped 1.2% for the period. Not only that, but the markets turned choppy, posing a big challenge for average retail investors.

But if you have a savvy tech investing guide in your corner, you can do better.

Much better.

Wealth creation better.

Consider that members of my Nova-X Report tech investing service absolutely crushed the market in the first quarter – by 270%.

This proves what we say all the time here: The road to wealth is paved by tech.

With that in mind, let's take a look at Nova-X members' four biggest first-quarter winners (remember, this stretch included the market's 10%-plus correction).

Plus, I'll show you what you need to do to start stacking up similar gains of your own...


The Single Best Way to Beat Market Volatility

You've heard it all before…

Options are dangerous. They're the fastest way to lose money. No one ever wins by playing these "odds."

But none of this is true.

In fact, the Wall Streeters' worst fear is the day you find out they've been misleading you (if not outright lying to you).

The truth is… their best-kept "secret" is the key to unlocking unlimited profits in any market condition.

And here's how...


Beat the Sell-Off with These Game Changers

If any pro sports team needed a game-changing play, it was the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday.

The underdogs in Super Bowl LII were behind by just one point late in the second half. And they were up against Tom Brady.

One of the top quarterbacks in NFL history, Brady was leading the New England Patriots downfield in what was shaping up to be another of his trademark wins.

But just when it mattered most, the Eagles pulled off a game-changing play – a strip-sack of Brady. After they recovered the fumble, the Eagles went on to win by eight points for their first Super Bowl win in franchise history.

I'm bringing this all up because I see a lot of parallels between that game and the market bloodbath we saw early last week – and the extreme turbulence we've seen ever since.

Fact is, individual investors like you are the clear underdogs, while hedge funds and the titans on Wall Street are more like the powerhouse Patriots.

And now that the Dow Jones Industrial Average is swinging by hundreds of points every day – and the sharks on the Street make a bundle every time – you could use a game-changing play to earn yourself a "Lombardi Trophy."

In fact, you could probably use a few Strategic Tech Investor Game Changers to get you in the winner's circle.

Today I've got five of them you can start executing right now...

One Tactic to Beat the Street and Buy Any Stock You Want "On Sale"

Conventional wisdom holds that Wall Street is rigged to favor the big traders, and that you'll never win.

The implication, of course, is why even try?

I've never believed that, and you shouldn't either.

In reality, there are plenty of savvy investors who have beaten and who continue to beat Wall Street at its own game consistently, including Sir John Templeton, the legendary Jim Rogers, Stanley Druckenmiller, and Warren Buffett, just to name a few.

I want you to be one of 'em, and I'm here to tell you that you can beat the Street.

I'm not kidding.

You can do this - starting with understanding something I call the lowball order...

Three Reasons to Ignore Robo-Advisors... and The Best Strategy to Beat Them

I've seen Wall Street use darn near every little conceivable technological trick in the book to gain a statistical edge over every day investors over the past 35 years.

One of the craziest was a high-frequency trading shop that actually wanted to drill through mountains so they could shave off milliseconds transporting information along a fiber-optic cable between exchanges in Chicago and New Jersey.

So, when BlackRock, a global investment management company with $5.1 trillion under management announced earlier this week that it was replacing human managers with stock-picking machines, only one thought raced through my brain…

here we go again!

Here's what Wall Street won't tell you.
