This Boom Won’t End Well

Doc’s note: “We can’t know exactly when this boom will end… But we can guarantee it won’t end well.”

That’s what colleague Justin Brill recently wrote in the Stansberry Digest. In that issue, which I’m sharing with you today, Justin explains why we’re on course for a “debt jubilee” in America and what you can do to prepare.

Hack Your Future With These Two Tricks

Last week, I (Amanda) wrote about the mistakes people make with their rollover IRA accounts.

Let’s say you’ve opened a new rollover IRA. Or maybe you opened a traditional or Roth IRA… or you just started a 401(k).

If you’re like most Americans, you’re likely nervous about how to choose your investments. Don’t worry. There are two secrets you need to know to make a solid portfolio.

First, figure out your allocation and risk tolerance.

As we discussed in our issue “Overcoming Your Biggest Character Flaw,” stocks hold the highest risk, but also offer the biggest reward. The least risky are certificates of deposit (CDs) and U.S. Treasury bills.

Depending on your age, you’ll want to pick your investments accordingly. If you’re in your 20s or 30s, you have more time to recover from potential losses, so take advantage of more stocks (and their growth). Think of a split around 90% stocks and 10% bonds or 80% and 20%. Remember, this mix changes depending on your comfort level and personal circumstances. If you’re very risk-averse, fewer stocks are a better option.

If you’re in your 40s or 50s, move more toward fixed income like bonds. By the time you’re 50, you’ll want to be at about 60% stocks and 40% bonds.

Banks Are Stealing Your Interest

Banks are keeping billions of dollars from Americans…

Right now, according to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, about $350 billion is sitting in brokerage accounts earning an average of 0.12%. That’s about $420 million in interest.

Answering Your Questions: My Favorite Way to Collect Safe Income in Retirement

Last week, I hosted a live training session with an investment newbie…

I love this type of one-on-one teaching. In our live demonstration, I showed her how to make her first option trade (she collected $210 instantly). I also explained the basics of my trading strategy and answered questions from readers like you.

Keep Making Money Even When the Stock Market Stalls

At times, Las Vegas mystifies me.

Last September, Stansberry Research held our annual meeting for Alliance Members at the Aria Resort. I spent a few days there, mingling with readers and the financial heavy-hitters that spoke across three days.

‘The Worst Epidemic of the 21st Century’

More than 100 million people in the U.S. currently have diabetes or prediabetes.

Worldwide, nearly 450 million people have diabetes. And those numbers have soared in recent decades.

It’s Time to Change Your Thinking About Making Money

Doc’s note: There’s one thing nearly all investors fail at… letting their winners ride and cutting losers short.

Today, I’m sharing an essay from my friend and colleague Steve Sjuggerud. He explains why it’s hard to cut losses and how knowing when to get out of a bad trade drastically improves your portfolio results.

Don’t Make My 401(k) Mistake

Don’t be like me (Amanda).

About six years ago, I left a job at another publishing company. At the time, I didn’t understand much about investing or retirement planning, and foolishly thought I’d just lose my 401(k) retirement plan.

Don’t Let Fear Ruin Your Portfolio

There’s one word that strikes fear into the hearts of most investors.
