Don’t Buy Bitcoin or Any Other Crypto (Do this to Make Millions Instead…)

Right now, thousands of regular investors are taking advantage of a little-known investment technique for making huge money in cryptocurrencies. Developed by a multi-millionaire math whiz, it’s a PROVEN method for making money in cryptocurrencies WITHOUT buying a single crypto.

You definitely don’t want to miss out on this way to play the next crypto boom. For details on his method - and to learn how you can set yourself up to make millions from cryptocurrencies no matter which direction they are going -- click here.

“Obvious prospects for growth in a business do not translate into obvious profits for investors.”

-- Ben Graham

Wall Street is full of potholes and danger signs. There are puzzles, paradoxes and anomalies in the stock market that often defy explanation.

For example, there’s the “growth trap” that Jeremy Siegel, the “Wizard of Wharton,” warns about in his book “Stocks for the Long Run.” Why is it that growth stocks often disappoint investors?

Lynch, who ran the most successful mutual fund for 15 years (Fidelity Magellan Fund), said that the most frustrating part of his business involved so-called growth stocks -- they often didn’t do as well as everyone expected.

Twitter is a good example. It's a media darling. It makes front page news every day when President Trump issues a line or two from his Twitter account. He has 2 million followers, and other celebrities have similarly big numbers.

And yet the stock price still has not exceeded its high of $63 a share back in 2013, even though five years has passed since then. It has been moving up lately but still has not been a blockbuster stock -- despite all the hype.

How Traders Use Indicators... and LOSE (Controversial)

Anyone whose investing depends on moving averages, Bollinger Bands, or other “old as the hills” technical indicators are probably struggling to make money. Or, best-case scenario, they wonder why they’re making so little. Why?

Because most technical indicators today are lagging indicators. They tell you where a price has been, but have no way to predict where a price is going. In this FREE e-book, I reveal secrets about a new predictive indicator that can tell you where a price is headed... with 86% accuracy. Click here now for your free copy.

The problem is that too many investors chase growth stocks and pay too much. Generally, the price to earnings (P/E) ratio for growth stocks is too high! Indeed, the trailing P/E ratio for Twitter is over 2,200! Fast-growing companies often fail to meet high expectations.

That’s just one example of the puzzlers we are going to discuss and resolve at this year’s Fast Money Summit at FreedomFest, July 11-14, at the Paris Resort in Las Vegas. The multi-day event starts in four weeks and I can’t wait!

We will have a special session on “Puzzles and Paradoxes in Investing,” and will give you the surprising answers to questions such as:
  1. Why did most shareholders LOSE money in the Magellan Fund, the most successful mutual fund run by Lynch?
  2. Why do stocks that pay rising dividends tend to grow faster, and not the other way around?
  3. Why do stocks with high dividend payout ratios do better than stocks with low payout ratios? Shouldn’t it be the opposite?
  4. Why do publicly traded companies with clever stock symbols (such as LUV, MAIN and TEAM) often do better than stocks with non-memorable symbols?
  5. How it is possible for monkeys throwing darts at stock pages to consistently beat the market index? (Known as Burt Malkiel’s Monkey Paradox).
Financial gurus such as Rob Arnott (“godfather of smart beta”), Pomona Professor of Finance Gary Smith, the Oxford Club’s Alex Green and Marc Lichtenfeld, Money Map’s Keith Fitz-Gerald and Asian guru Jim Rogers will be there to discuss and resolve these fascinating puzzles on Wall Street.

Federal Judge Rules in Favor of AT&T/Time Warner Merger
By Mark Skousen
Editor, Forecasts & Strategies


You would think that under President Donald Trump, the Justice Department would have better things to do than to interfere with free enterprise, especially when academic studies have shown the futility and negative impact of antitrust actions.

Yet believe it or not, Trump and the antitrust cops tried to deny the $85 billion merger of AT&T (NYSE:T) and Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) on the flimsy argument that the merger would be uncompetitive. According to the Trump administration, AT&T could use its new market power to raise prices exorbitantly on cable and satellite operators that want to run Time Warner TV programs -- such as CNN broadcasts or HBO shows. The government’s lawyers argued that consumers’ cable bills would go up if the merger went through.

Of course, that’s nonsense. As Steve Moore wrote in today’s New York Times, “The absurdity of this argument is that the Justice lawyers seemed to be stuck in the 1980s. In 2018, the number of American households getting their television or video entertainment from traditional cable providers is declining. The very notion of “watching TV” is becoming as obsolete as listening to music on a turntable. My teenage kids and their friends don’t even own TVs. They watch “Game of Thrones” on their computers or smartphones, and one of their favorite “channels” is YouTube. They can choose from thousands of programs at a very low cost. Today, any hotshot with a camera and a Facebook page can be a media company. Is that enough competition for the Justice Department?”

Moore concluded, “These are two American companies merging to gain profitability and global market share. In this way, the merger helps put America first. Someone, please tell the lawyers…” and President Trump?
