Five Immediate Plays for Walmart's Fall from Grace

I take great pride in being ahead of the markets and keeping your money moving well ahead of Wall Street. Not only are the profits bigger, but the jump in performance you enjoy can be life-changing.

Recently, for example, David Seaburg – head of sales & trading at Cowen & Co. – told his audience that Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) is dead money: "Stay away from it," he added.

Yep… and I told you as much three years ago while encouraging you to move your money into other choices like Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and Costco Wholesale Corp. (Nasdaq: COST) if you wanted to own "retail." Walmart's attempt to compete with Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) would involve spending so much money that management could kill earnings, which Seaburg directly mentioned.

Walmart stock is down 21.32% from the all-time high it set on Jan. 29, which means it's officially in bear market territory.

Fortunately, though, once you're away from the disaster of a retailer that Walmart is, there's still an incredible trade opportunity if you latch on now…

Five, actually, and here's why...


Five Profit Plays to Make Now Before the Trade Dispute Settles

Say what you will about President Donald Trump – he's certainly been consistent on China.

During the 2016 campaign, he repeatedly promised to slash our trade deficit with the world's most populous nation. Last week, he said the goal is to cut that $375 billion yearly shortfall by as much as $100 billion.

This explains three moves he has made recently…

The first are the president's 25% tariffs on imported steel, most of which comes from China. We went over those a couple of weeks ago.

The second occurred earlier this month when the White House blocked Singapore-based Broadcom Ltd.'s (Nasdaq: AVGO) proposed $117 billion acquisition of Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM), the wireless chip leader based in San Diego.

Then, late last week, President Trump signed an executive memorandum that would impose retaliatory tariffs on up to $60 billion in Chinese imports to punish Beijing for stealing American companies' intellectual property.

These three big moves have many on Wall Street doubting the wisdom of investing in any Chinese tech stocks in the current climate.

That's crazy. First off, all the media "noise" around tariffs and trade wars doesn't match the reality of the situation… the "signal" – which is that Trump's tough talk has gotten China and others to the negotiating table.

We've already gotten concessions from South Korea – and I bet Beijing will be close behind.

So, while others flee in fear, I've identified five Chinese tech leaders that I think will benefit – not despite Trump's moves… but because of them.

Today I'm going to show you why the time to act is now, and how you can make big money doing so...


Facebook Stock Suffers Largest Decline in Four Years - Here's What to Do Next

Facebook stock suffered its largest one-day decline (by percentage points) in nearly four years on Monday and was the primary catalyst cited for the steep drop in the markets. The stock closed 6.8% lower as it was reported that Cambridge Analytica (a political analysis firm) collected and stored data from 50 million users' accounts without permission.

Now this has the financial news networks driving investor fears about owning tech stocks through the roof. And unfortunately, when these kinds of things happen, the question then becomes whether or not you should dump everything you own.

But my direction to you is the same as it always has been…

Don't get caught up in the noise and forced commentary of the talking heads who sensationalize to get their ratings – and their revenue – up.

Plus, when a stock is really headed to Wall Street purgatory, we'll sound the alarm…

In terms of dumping your tech stocks, especially FB, that's the worst thing you could do to your portfolio right now.

Here's why...

Here's Why You Should Ignore the "First Five Days" Market Indicator

At the core of human nature is the desire to understand complex systems in simple terms. The problem is we tend to apply this simplistic cause-and-effect model to very intricate problems and then expect similar easy-to-understand answers.

Because we like simple explanations, we are more than willing to believe cause-and-effect explanations that really don't make any logical sense.

Maybe that's why there are so many stock forecasting tools that use shaky logic and even shakier statistics to predict what will happen in the market in the days and months to come.

So let's look at one of these hyped indicators that you'll be hearing a lot about over the next week...

Five Reasons Why Gold Will Soar in 2018

Bitcoin – a high-tech, 21st-century investment vehicle if ever there was one – soared from $1,000 to nearly $20,000… and back down to $13,100. It has, of course, got everyone riveted.

Stocks are going ballistic, too, with the market packing on more than 20% in gains over 2017.

And so it's been easy to overlook that 5,000-year-old, decidedly non-virtual asset: gold.

Its story hasn't been flashy; the yellow metal has had a tough time thanks in part to all those strong dollars sitting in optimistic, well-paid investors' pockets.

But, as our Director of Research Matt Warder is about to show you, the bottom is behind us and the way upstairs is wide open for gold gains – possibly even extreme gains – in 2017.

This ride is something no investor can afford to miss...
