Do you want to change careers? Are you absolutely sure?
From my own career change to the stories I hear from my clients and workshop students, often we think we want to change careers when the problem is our work environment instead. If you find yourself stuck, unsure what to do next, or t
The February stock market rout created a tremendous opportunity for long-term investors. Everyone is asking which stocks make sense for the rest of 2018 and beyond. The following five stocks are my favorite large-cap names for a buy-and-hold portfolio.
1. United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) Shares of this package delivery service have plunged around 30% from their January 2018 highs. The....More>>>

A little less than a year ago, we said that DNB was offering a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ buying opportunity. Our high-conviction contrarian call was based on the fact that DNB was trading at a very....More>>>

It's a most unusual bull market (we count as one the updrafts....More>>>
A few days ago, an article about Nike (NYSE:NKE) argued that “Nike’s shares aren’t priced to buy.” The reasoning was that “Nike is, at best, fairly valued. And it certainly isn’t trading hands at fire-sale prices.” The question is: should you expect (and wait for) fire-sales prices? Most value investors know the maxim that it is better to buy a great business....More>>>
Retirement investors want sure things. There isnt enough time to make up for stocks that just fall into the ground, never to return. So considering how awful energy has been for the past couple of years, its probably surprising to see energy stocks and retirement mentioned in the same vicinity.
Sustained low oil and natural gas prices have negatively impacted energy stocks. OK, thats putting....More>>>

Longtime readers know Steve Sjuggerud is a true contrarian… Steve has made a career of recommending cheap, hated assets that most investors have no interest in owning… And he has a long track record of winners to show for it (including the best-performing recommendation in Stansberry Research history).

There have been some macroeconomic signs that America's housing boom is starting to show signs of fatigue, but those figures haven't really shown up in the earnings reports of most homebuilders. The one exception is Beazer Homes USA (NYSE:BZH). While most companies are still showing strong home
