What You Should Be Watching in the Markets This Week

Here we are in yet another week of the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on nearly every aspect of our lives…

The markets are clearly no exception as volatility continues to shake up not only the stock market, but also the bond, oil, and currency markets – the four areas that I look at to gauge where we are and where we're headed.

Now as you may know, I start out every Monday by looking at the S&P 500 ETF. While it came down on Friday, we were able to see a big bump up on Monday.

One reason behind this is some of the positive news that came from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo about the situation stabilizing a bit in that state, which could lead to more investors getting back into the markets.

Of course, as has been true since this trouble started, you can't trust these rallies. Once that buying happens, the "smart money" will sell that enthusiasm because the reality of the situation is likely worse than the numbers indicate.

Moreover, Q1 earnings are going to be reported this week and will likely have an impact on the markets going forward.

So let's take a more detailed look at what's moving these markets and what you can do about it… Full Story

3 Warren Buffett Stocks to Watch Right Now

Warren Buffett has largely remained out of the headlines during this financial downturn.

While other money managers like Bill Ackman and Carl Icahn continue to generate headlines, Buffett has largely remained quiet.

Prior to the market crash in March, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) had roughly $128 billion in cash.

That level of dry powder means that it could purchase nearly any U.S. company trading on the public markets.

Berkshire is likely to deploy some of its cash; however, it could choose to boost its existing stakes in its portfolio companies instead of buying a new company.

Here are three major holdings of Berkshire Hathaway that could be excellent "Warren Buffett stocks" to buy.


Dow Jones

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Rebounds Today After Monday's 7% Drop

The Dow Jones Industrial Average could gain back some of yesterday's losses after the Trump administration floated the possibility of a payroll tax cut.

The plan is to ward off any negative economic impact from the coronavirus.

The news comes a day after the S&P 500 lost 7% and the Dow Jones shed more than 2,000 points in a single trading session.

The Huge Coronavirus "Reality Gap" Created by the News Media - and What to Do About It

Every time my phone starts ringing off the hook to make TV network appearances, I know it's a sign there's a Reality Gap big enough to make some real money.

A Reality Gap is the huge chasm between what the news media (plus Wall Street, Big Government, and Madison Avenue – or as I call them, the "Big Four") is serving you and the actual truth. The illusions they peddle aren't in your best interest; they distract you from what's best for your money.

Take China's coronavirus outbreak. Over the past two weeks, I've made seven television show appearances to talk about the coronavirus and how it's impacting markets and individual stocks.

It's pretty clear the news media is having a field day over this. Every minute, there's a new update on infections, possible mutations, comparisons to SARS… This human tragedy is being milked for all it's worth.

The reason why is simple: Fear sells. No TV news segment, news website, or cable news update is complete without a coronavirus update, because that's currently what gets views. And more views mean more money selling ads.

It's overtaken the top of the news agenda – the president's impeachment trial, Monday's Iowa caucus, even the record-breaking wildfires still raging in Australia.

Not to mention the things you can actually act on, like Amazon's extraordinary earnings surprise…

And the news media isn't the only culprit here, either. Big Government is getting in on the game, too, with health organizations underreacting, then overreacting, and issuing jarring headlines.

"CDC: Preparing as If Coronavirus Is 'the Next Pandemic.'" This led to a 250-point drop in the Dow on Jan. 24.

And lost amid all this noise is a Reality Gap between what's being said and what should really matter: the truth.

And the truth is we're turning the corner on this outbreak. As the very numbers the news media uses to whip up panic show, coronavirus cases are peaking. This means the end is in sight.

I know because I did something the news media won't do for you – I took a closer look at the numbers beyond the headline distractions. Let me show you… Full Story

Market Crash

Will the Coronavirus Cause a Stock Market Crash?

If you're spooked the coronavirus could cause a stock market crash, you aren't alone.

The Dow Jones started this week 400 points in the red as the outbreak continues to spread.

But a jittery few days doesn't mean a stock market crash is coming.

It also doesn't mean there's no danger either.

As always, our goal is to help you make money, and crises like these don't just create risks, they create opportunities too...

Dow Jones

The Dow Jones Today Will Jump as Fed Plans Rate Cut

The Dow Jones today is up as investors continue to cheer an expected rate cut later this month by the Federal Reserve.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell will testify today before the Senate Banking Committee, a day after speaking with the House Financial Services Committee.

Powell said the Fed is likely to more actively support economic growth due to the recent stalling in business investments across the country.
