Fixing Our Broken Healthcare System

Good health and good sense are two great blessings. That’s exactly why our Chief Income Strategist and biotech investment expert Marc Lichtenfeld is teaming up with a true powerhouse – former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich – to bring you The 2019 American Health & Wealth Summit.

And America needs it. Sadly, our healthcare system is challenged (to say the least) and does not necessarily help make us healthier.

The U.S. spends twice what other developed nations do on healthcare. But our results are far from twice as good. We have the lowest life expectancy and the highest infant mortality rate …read more […]

Megacities and the New Urban Economy

We’re seeing the rise of the concrete jungle.

According to U.N. estimates, nearly 70% of people will live in cities by 2050.

Some cities have grown so large in population and power that a new term has been coined for them: megacities.

But humanity’s rapid urbanization comes with problems.

Powering a city that large is a herculean endeavor – managing traffic is as well. There’s also the environmental impact to consider.

Regardless, the future is urban. The fortunes of entire nations will be decided in the cities that harness the best and brightest their countries have to offer.

One city that bridges Europe and Asia is …read more […]

These Three Amigos Can Boost Your Portfolio

The U.S., Mexico and Canada are the rebellious children of Europe’s empires. Because of that, there’s a certain kinship among them.

That kinship led to the creation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994. NAFTA brought all three economies closer together.

It’s been an economic boon.

America’s 2018 GDP was nearly triple what it was in 1994. Mexico’s and Canada’s GDP each more than doubled in the same time span.

The U.S., Canada and Mexico are one another’s largest trade partners. Mexico and Canada ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in total trade value with America last year.

But the agreement …read more […]

The Rise of Everyday Machines

The line between cyberspace and reality gets blurrier by the day. Computers and robots have gone from science fiction to commonplace in just a few decades.

We’re not quite cyborgs yet, but the relationship between humans and machines is closer than ever. Your smartphone is proof of that. Research suggests that trend will continue.

The drone market represents the next wave of everyday robots.

First used by the military, today the civilian drone market is exploding. By 2022, there will be almost 2.5 million drones in use across the U.S. alone. It could be an $82.1 billion industry worldwide by 2025.

America’s Self-Made Billionaires

I see headlines every day proclaiming the death of the American Dream. Despair, it would seem, is the spirit of the times.

But that despair is simply unfounded.

The United States is home to more billionaires – many of them self-made – than any other country. They exemplify America’s optimism and entrepreneurial spirit, whether they were born in this country or a world away. Two of the best examples have found their names in the headlines lately…

Howard Schultz, former chairman of Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX), is running for president in 2020 as an Independent.

He was born to Fred and Elaine Schultz in Brooklyn, …read more […]

China’s Role in Shaping Consumer Industries

Volkswagen (OTC: VWAGY) and Toyota (NYSE: TM) have been in a race for the title of world’s largest automaker since 2015. But based on last year’s sales figures, Germany’s automotive giant is pulling ahead of its Japanese rival.

But how? Toyota is the most valuable brand in the auto industry (the Corolla is the best-selling car of all time).

The answer is China, the world’s largest auto market. Volkswagen has taken advantage of this burgeoning market, while Toyota has largely ignored it.

Chinese consumers make up 30% of new car buyers worldwide. Although sales dipped last year, China’s appetite for new cars continues …read more […]

Investing Lessons From Granddad’s Old Truck

A good story separates the lasting brands from the failures. It can elevate a product into a cultural icon.

Believe it or not, the best example of a powerful brand is a humble work truck.

Ford’s F-Series trucks have been around since 1948. Since then, they’ve become the best-selling vehicles in America. Of the 2.4 million full-size trucks sold last year, almost 1 million were F-Series, generating $41 billion in revenue for Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F). According to Morgan Stanley, the F-Series could be worth more than Ford itself.

So what’s so special about the F-Series?

The answer is in its story. It’s …read more […]

Profit From Marijuana's Makeover

A brand is a powerful thing. It’s why Ford’s F-150 is synonymous with the pickup truck. It’s why Coke is a household name and waiters and waitresses the world over have to ask, “Is Pepsi okay?”

Marijuana itself has a sort of “brand,” and it carries a lot of baggage. It still conjures up images of Cheech and Chong, Willie Nelson, long hair and Woodstock for some.

But many Americans are beginning to look at cannabis in a different light.

As today’s chart shows, a majority of Democrats, Independents and Republicans support cannabis legalization. And that says a lot when all three of …read more […]

After the stock market rallied at the end of April, some investors are still looking for a big payout. Here is a list of the five top penny stocks to watch in May.

Whether you didn’t make enough in that rally or missed it completely, there is still money to be made on Wall Street. And some …read more […]

What Poland Can Teach You About Investing

There’s a Polish saying I love: “Jakoś to będzie.” It means something along the lines of “It’ll be alright.”

It might sound like passive resignation, but it refers to optimism in the face of adversity. And it suits modern Poland perfectly.

When the Soviet Union fell in 1989, Poland was free for the first time in decades.

But its economy was in shambles. Its currency was less than worthless. It would have been easy to despair.

Instead the Poles put “Jakoś to będzie” into practice and chose optimism. They aggressively liberalized the country, embracing free market principles.

Poland became Europe’s fastest-growing economy. It avoided the …read more […]

The Value of a "Sparkling" Customer Experience

In the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the characters played by Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard have a ring from a Cracker Jack box engraved at Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF), unable to afford anything else from the glittering high-end jewelry store.

My favorite part of the scene is how happy the man at the counter is to engrave the ring. Rather than sneering at the two cash-strapped visitors, he treats them the same way he would treat a millionaire.

This iconic scene played a big part in reinforcing what one could call the Tiffany legend.

To this day, people around the world …read more […]
