Enough is enough.
I’ve reached my tipping point on the insanity that’s going on in the media. And on Wall Street. And on Madison Avenue, for that matter.
Those three groups are dedicated to treating the rest of the world like mushrooms – keeping us in the dark and feeding us manure.
I want to do exactly the opposite.
I’m making it my mission to shine a bright light on the messages that are being sold to us. Messages meant to misdirect you and me. To mislead us. Or to cover up what’s really going on.
Take Thursday morning for example, when a key bit of global economic data came out. Something that could make or break your investments for the rest of the year…
Germany is the largest economy in Europe, and the fourth-largest in the world. It’s an industrial powerhouse that for decades has been driven by exports – sending cars, machinery, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals all across the globe.
The country’s export focus makes Germany a key bellwether for how consumers across the world are doing. Strong consumer spending tends to mean high demand for imports, which bodes well for Germany.
So when Germany’s manufacturing industry shrunk for three quarters running this year, it put traders on high alert.
Not that you saw much about this on the news, of course.
No, they had more “interesting and political” things to talk about. Like who said what about Ukraine, as if that was going to change something.
It’s just not.
But the fourth-largest economy in the world shedding factory jobs at the fastest rate in almost ten years — that can change everything. It’s a key sign that the global economy might not be doing so well.
Yet both on TV and online, all you heard about was “impeachment” this and “Ukraine phone call” that.
Meanwhile, here’s the news that really matters, and how you can profit from it…
Why Impeachment Doesn’t Deserve Your Attention
As far as this impeachment is concerned – let’s jump straight to the bottom line: None of this impeachment gibberish matters. Because it is perfectly clear how this is going to end. Love him or hate him, even if President Trump is impeached (meaning he has formal charges brought against him by the House), he…
Will. Not. Be. Convicted.
You know it. I know it. The markets know it. Wall Street and the media know it too. And even though there are some staunch “Never Trumpers” holding out hope for a conviction, it’s just not going to happen.
It’s simple math.
Yes, the Democratic majority in the House will vote to impeach him. As it stands, I’d be amazed if they don’t. But for the Senate to convict him, 67 Senators would have to vote against the President.
That would take 20 Republicans voting against a President that’s still popular within his own party.
That’s just not going to happen.
But the media keeps yapping about it to keep you distracted. Distracted from the news that really matters to your financial security, your livelihood, your retirement.
Because they have their own political agenda to support. Plus, they can sell lots of ads when talking incessantly about impeachment, and practically none when talking about things that are vital to growing your wealth.
Look, I’m not a conspiracy theorist. The news media, the banks and brokers on Wall Street, the Madison Avenue ad agencies – there’s no grand conspiracy between them, no written agreement to keep things from you.
They just all have agendas that definitely don’t include helping you make money. Their agendas include, first and foremost, making money for themselves, keeping and/or growing their power and influence, driving their political agendas, and doing everything they can to keep you spending your hard-earned money on their stuff and voting or acting in the way benefits them – not you.
Like any good stage magician, they distract you by waving one hand around to keep you from seeing what they’re really doing with the other.
Well, I’m sick and tired of watching it. And watching what it does to friends, family, colleagues and good folks like you who come here for a little sanity and some clear-headed guidance.
We’re ten years into a bull market that has seen profits go to people that are supposed to be helping you, but are lining their own pockets instead.
And if you were transfixed watching or reading mainstream media, You were left in the dark.
That ends today.
Profit from the News You Really Need to See
Look, practically all of the analysts were expecting the same recession-leaning trend to continue in Germany on Thursday.
Wall Street expected the reports to say that the whole country was in a recession, with its economy shrinking. The best-case scenario was that the economy remained flat – just didn’t move.
So much for the analysts’ expertise…
Instead, Germany’s economy grew 0.5% in the third quarter of this year.
This great news was buried beneath a mountain of impeachment prattle.
While America was transfixed with impeachment talk, Wall Street traders were busy trading on this news, making money hand-over-fist.
But there’s a direct take-away for you here.
Germany’s economy unexpectedly grew because consumer spending is still strong, and construction is booming.
Meanwhile, the manufacturing industry isn’t struggling nearly as much as the “experts” thought it would. Even a weak car sector hasn’t managed to tip the economy into a recession.
Here’s what that means for you. Now is the time for medium and long-term trades in the industrial sector. Think “companies that make stuff that would hurt if you dropped it on your foot”. Industrial companies like Lockeed Martin (LMT), Boeing (BA), United Technologies Corp. (UTX), and others are all likely to show strength going forward, and to fall less in any downturn.
Specifically, focus on companies working in construction and defense, and avoid car and auto parts manufacturers for now.
Because, as Germany showed, the global economy is not as weak as pundits thought. Nor is manufacturing.
It’s time we peer behind the curtain. Let’s uncover what the brokers, the business “journalists,” and the advertising world’s modern “mad men” are telling you. I’ll call it out when their message is distracting, misleading or just plain wrong.
Going forward, we’ll dig into what’s really happening in the markets and the global economy – and yes, occasionally in the political world – that will lead directly to what to buy, when to sell and how we can really make money in the markets and grow our wealth.
I’m glad to have you with me, because…
Enough is enough.
