The company disrupting your mouth

July 15, 2019

One of my most painful memories as a kid was having my braces tightened.

How Bernard got into the rich guy club

July 1, 2019

There are 2,208 billionaires on earth, according to Forbes.

But only 3 are rich enough to qualify as “centi-billionaires”—worth $100 billion or more.

Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos is #1.

Microsoft founder (MSFT) Bill Gates is #2.

#3 will probably surprise you.

It’s not super-investor Warren Buffett. It’s not Facebook…

The US housing market is BOOMING.

This past month the number of Americans looking to buy a new house spiked to a three-year high...

Mortgage applications jumped 40%...

And Quicken Loans, the US’s largest mortgage lender, had its best month in 30- ears.

Why I’m buying Google on the government crackdown

June 17, 2019

Imagine how much money you’d make if half of all people on the planet were your customers...

There are about 7.5 billion people on earth.

On an average day, 3.8 billion internet searches are performed.

92% of those searches—or 3.5 billion—flow through Google (GOOG).

What do an iPhone and Nike sneakers have in common?

Both are made by iconic American companies...

Two big updates on the 5G rollout in America

June 3, 2019

It’s always great to talk with RiskHedge readers face-to-face…

I met a handful of you at the Strategic Investment Conference in Dallas a couple weeks ago.

Although RiskHedge readers tend to be serious investors, most don’t invest for a living.

I met an airplane pilot… a doctor… an aerospace engineer.

The end of the bank

May 28, 2019

For the first time ever, banks’ grip on money is slipping away...

Notorious stickup man Willy Sutton was once asked: “why rob banks?”

“Because that’s where the money is...” he said.

The dumbest thing you can do with your money in 2019

May 6, 2019

When was the last time you took a cab?

I mean a real yellow taxicab, with a light on the roof and a fare meter running.

I don’t even own a car, and I haven’t climbed into a cab in years.

That’s not because I never go anywhere. I travel…
