America's Coal Country Is Embracing the Power - and Profit Potential - of Solar

When he passed away last September at the age of 91, T. Boone Pickens generated dozens of media biographies. Nearly all of them missed a key detail about his last years…

Of course, a billionaire with his reputation as a savvy business leader would no doubt get lots of obituaries written about him. And most focused on his very successful career as an oil and gas baron.

It's easy to see why. After all, in 2007 alone, he is reported to have earned more than $2.7 billion from his two energy-investing funds.

So, it may sound surprising for me to suggest that those obituaries were inaccurate…

Here's the thing – at least two years before his death, Pickens went through a sea change and closed his energy funds. He became a massive backer of solar technology.

Now, I spoke to you recently about all the opportunity that I'm seeing heading our way, thanks to the solar revolution. No doubt, a smart businessman like T. Boone Pickens also realized the sheer scope of this technological transformation. It all comes down to basic science.

Boone (as he was known) saw what many people are beginning to see: Renewables are the next generation in energy production.

His move into solar is a major signal of the profit potential we can unlock from this sector.

This same sentiment has reached another key audience – one that will supercharge solar's growth.

Dow Jones Today Moves to Break Six-Session Losing Streak as Trade War Accelerates

The Dow Jones today posted a 100-point gain in premarket trading following yesterday's dramatic sell off.

Due to ongoing worries over trade and Sino-U.S. trade relations, Tuesday was the sixth consecutive drop in the Dow Jones Industrial average.

While the Dow might fall more than 300 points every now and then, it's important to have a strategy to make solid gains from buying opportunities.

Here's how to trade on the dip.

Dow 60K: Still On Track (Even Though Most People Still Don't Believe It)

Last June I made an observation that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would hit 60,000 at a time when it was trading at only 21,171.57 – a seemingly incomprehensible 183.4% increase.

Yet here we are.

The Dow closed at 26,392.79 Thursday, a new record high in a string of an unprecedented 10 records recorded in 2018 already.

And 60,000 still seems incomprehensible to most investors.

Is it?

Not if you do the math.

Hitting 60,000 by 2027 – 10 years on – is not only feasible, but highly likely. In fact, getting there from here requires a compound return of just 9.56% over the next nine years.

All the ingredients are there...
