Why the Old "Buy and Hold" Is No Longer the Way to Go

No matter if you have a mutual fund account, an IRA, or an employer-sponsored retirement account, you've probably been told at some point in time: put your money in for the long term in order to build your wealth.  

This mirrors the idea that contributing a specific percentage or dollar amount of your paycheck during your working years will set you up for a nice retirement – and it's the single most common piece of investment advice out there.

But here's my concern…

The amount of money and time you need to build your wealth depends on your own lifestyle and desires. There's no "magic number" for you to reach. Your wealth is what you want it to be.

Now I'm not disputing that you can make money over the long haul…

I'm saying there's a much faster – and much easier – way to finally get that vacation house you've always dreamed of… 

So don't let Wall Street hold you back any longer.

It's time to get a head start on your financial goals...


The Easiest Way to Find the Richest Oil & Gas Plays

Multiples are one of the most popular "yardsticks" when it comes to finding undervalued oil and gas stocks to buy.

More often than not, that involves a hard look at the multiple of a company's earnings to determine whether or not a stock is fairly valued.

In the case of energy stocks, however, there is a more important multiple you need to understand. Much more important, in fact, and more reliable, too.

I generally use it to target oil and natural gas stocks, although the "yardstick" can be tweaked to apply to power producers, and even coal and uranium miners.

It's a way to cut through some of the fast and loose "games" management can play with its reserves, too, and to get a more accurate feel for a company's booked reserves and its trading price.

Ultimately, my yardstick takes into consideration the extractable reserves a company has in the ground and opens up a window into how that stock should trade.

I've used this measure time and again to bring home market-beating double- and triple-digit wins.

Once you understand how to use this yardstick, you can too.

It's easy - here's how it works...

The Best Stock to Trade Right Now

After a calm and steady 2017, volatility is alive and well in this 2018 run. Last week, for example, the Dow Jones continued to seesaw in a triple-digit range.

That doesn't mean we can't score major profits…

But I get it, pinpointing exceptional opportunities can be like finding a needle in a haystack… 

And that can make searching for that perfect stock – that needle in the haystack – an especially daunting task.

But don't worry – that's why I'm here. I've spent nearly 30 years in the securities industry – including some time on the floor of the American Stock Exchange. And I've made it my mission to share everything I've learned and all the secrets that Wall Street doesn't want you to know.

That's why today, I'm going to reveal the single best stock to trade in the top-performing sector of the markets right now...


Buy This "Meaty" Play on Blockchain While It's Still On Sale

First Eastman Kodak… and now Starbucks.

Indeed, Starbucks Chairman Howard Shultz recently took to the airwaves to let everyone know that his coffee company is getting into the blockchain business.

"I think blockchain technology is probably the rails in which an integrated app at Starbucks will be sitting on top of," he said during an interview on FOX Business Network.

Blockchain is the digital and decentralized ledger behind Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies. Crypto traders depend on blockchain's transparency and unchanging nature to record all their transactions. Now industries beyond digital coins and even fintech are exploring how to use the technology. Blockchain is potentially the perfect technology for everything from running global supply chains to keeping track of medical records.

But Schulz didn't mention any of that.

Instead, he talked about the possibility of expanding digital customer relationships using blockchain, or even the possibility of launching a proprietary crypto coin. "I believe that we are heading into a new age, in which blockchain technology is going to provide a significant level of a digital currency that is going to have a consumer application," he said during an earnings call.

Hold on, buddy. That sounds an awful lot like gimmickry to me – tweaking some technology and then using the "blockchain" name to rebrand an already existing customer rewards program.

That's not going to "move the needle" on a big company like Starbucks – and it doesn't make the Seattle company a blockchain investment.

However, there's another company out there that didn't just talk about the blockchain in the past week or so, but made some noticeable moves with it.

It's making blockchain technology a key part of its business – and it's doing so in a huge and growing market.

Plus, now is the perfect time to buy - here's why...


Man Fails to Buy $60K BMW with Food Stamps, Returns to Steal Car

A Florida man tried to buy a $60,000 BMW X-6 SUV with his Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and credit card on Thursday. The auto dealership in Pompano Beach "declined 36-year-old Nicholas Jackson's business" when he offered to pay with food stamps, according to the Martin County Sherriff's Office police report.

Jackson returned the next day and took the car, plus 60 sets of keys. He was apprehended 70 miles north, where authorities say he drove until the car ran out of gas.

Misuse of food stamps has become a heated issue as we near the 2016 presidential election. FOX Business' "Varney & Co." highlighted Jackson's case this morning, and Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald weighed in...

Best Long-Term Stocks to Buy Now: BABA, AAPL, BA

One of the key parts of a successful wealth-building strategy is finding the best long-term stocks and holding them for years.

Solid long-term stocks let you collect gains steadily for five, 10, or 20 years while you focus on finding other investments and opportunities. You can check in with them every quarter and see if anything has changed or adjust your holdings if your investment priorities are different. But for the most part, they are low maintenance, low risk, and high reward.

Now, we've picked three of the best long-term stocks on the market today. Each of these three stocks are leaders in their respective industries. They also have solid balance sheets and growth projections.

One just saw its revenue jump 40% in the most recent quarter. Another has annual revenue of $226 billion with gross profit margins near 40%. The third expects its industry to fill $5.2 trillion worth of orders in the next two decades.
