Rank #3: When (and why) to buy stocks on “tariff news” (Ep. 668)

Podcast cover
Read more
How many times will the press blow up a story with hand-wringing and fear-mongering and 24/7 coverage… only to drop it like a hot potato at the start of the next news cycle? Take Zika for example… The mosquito-borne virus causes mild (if any) symptoms, but it’s been linked to birth defects. And when the 2016 Summer Olympics were held in Rio de Janeiro, many athletes (and spectators) didn’t go due to widespread fears over the virus. Fast forward to today. There’s no epidemic… no panic… and no story. It’s no different with the constant headlines about tariffs… Except I’m going to tell you when (and why) to buy stocks on tariff news! Trust me… This is even better than a drinking game. I welcome back John Petrides, managing director and portfolio manager at Point View Wealth Management [19:38]. We cover an array of topics and, of course, John breaks down his favorite sectors and the stocks he likes right now. And you don’t want to miss my educational segment [48:41]. I divulge an investing secret—a lesson I’ve learned over my long career. This isn’t something you’ll read about in any books… but it’ll help you become a better investor for the long term. -------------------------------- P.S. I just released an incredible new report for Curzio Research Advisory members. If you’re not yet a member, keep an eye on your inbox for how to access this name… It’s a tiny new company testing a game-changing device that could send the stock soaring 1,000% or more.

Who saw this coming? Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged. As all of you know, the one and only Donald Trump will become our next President. Our economic environment has radically changed overnight - and I'm here to break-down what this means for every sector going forward. I'll try my best to avoid anymore political discussion.

To end the episode, Nick gives listeners his favorite stock ideas. This includes four buy-recommendations every resource stock investor needs to be aware of.

Jeff Brown, editor of the Exponential Tech Investor newsletter and former head of divisions at tech giants Qualcomm and Juniper Networks, says it's the best time to invest in technology in 40 years. He breaks down the biggest trends in the industry including Big Data, Robotics and Cyber Security. 
Jeff then talks about the private equity (pre-IPO) market.  As an angel investor, he's more than doubled his money several times over by investing in the right area in technology at the right time. He highlights how it used to take a typical Fortune 500 company roughly 20 years to reach a $1 billion market-cap.  Today, it takes as little as three years for companies like Uber and Snapchat to achieve this milestone. 
Jeff explains how to invest in private companies. More important, he shares his favorite segments - within the private tech sector - that are seeing the most interest from multi-billion dollar venture funds.

Rank #9: The most important lesson in investing (Ep. 649)

Podcast cover
Read more
Volatility can be hard to stomach. Right now, we’re seeing 300 point moves in the Dow Jones index on daily basis… and some of the greatest companies in the world are down more than 30% from their highs.    During volatile markets, it’s vital to have tools in place to lower your overall risk. After all, the last thing you want is to take a 70% loss on any position. And by limiting your losses, you have some dry powder to buy incredible names at significant discounts. In this special podcast, I break down one of the most important lessons in investing—risk management. Few people know more about this topic than Dr. Richard Smith, founder and CEO of TradeSmith. On today’s show, Dr. Smith, who has a PhD in math and systems science, breaks down his favorite risk management techniques… and his strategy to take emotions out of investing. This interview is a must-listen. Then in my educational segment (55:00), I do the unimaginable... I break down one of my biggest losers of the year. We’ll have losing investments from time to time… but today I show you how I was able to avoid a catastrophic loss for investors by using this one simple risk management technique.   It’s a great lesson on how to become a better investor. And I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to me eat some humble pie!  Wishing you all a very happy holiday!

Rank #10: Ep. 501: How to Invest in Hated Stocks

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged!  On today’s show I bring back the rockstar of CEO’s – Keith Neumeyer. Keith is a pioneer in the resource industry. He has successfully built three publicly traded mining companies And today, he catches us up to date on two of them - First Mining Finance (FF.V), and First Majestic Silver (AG). I first invited Keith on the show directly after the launch of his first gold venture, First Mining Finance. At the time, the stock was at just at $.30. Today, the stock price rests right around $1. Keith has a knack for buying assets at the right time. In other words, he’s an expert at timing the market. As you’ll hear on the show, “what you pay for assets is how you create value” is his motto. When he launched First Mining Finance, gold prices were sitting at record-level lows. And when commodity prices finally rebounded last year, his company took off – reaching gains well over 300%. Today Keith gives us his outlook for the company going forward, along with the yellow-metal itself. Moving on, we turn our focus to Keith’s other company, First Majestic Silver (AG). First Majestic is the largest Silver producer in the world. And looking at the numbers, The company has everything in place.  Then for today’s Educational Segment, we take a closer look at one of my favorite market strategies – Buying hated stocks.  One-by-one, I break down a list of Wall Street’s most hated companys. These are the stocks that everyone avoids; and stocks that have “sell” ratings across the board. This includes names like Twitter, Valeant, Sears, Macy’s, Gamestop, and Target. By any means, what I am about to introduce to you is not an easy strategy… But when you follow these steps, it can work like a charm.  This is the stuff that has led me to my greatest gains in my career. And it’s the only contrarian formula you need to know.

Amir Adnani, Founder and Chairman of Brazil Resources, talks about the recent 300% surge in his stock.  He breaks down what's next for the company and how he plans to more than double the company's gold deposits - which now stand at over 11 million ounces.    Amir also discusses Brazil Resources' huge uranium asset.  This asset - which surrounds Areva's super high-grade Maybelle River deposit - could be valued at more than $50 million, or 40% of the market-cap of the company.  Yet, the "Street" is assigning no value to this large high-grade deposit.  Finally, Amir talks about the state of the gold markets.  He sees prices going higher over the mid to longer term.  If he's right, this should be great news for Brazil Resources which has become one of the premier standouts in the huge junior resource sector.

First and foremost… Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall in the Carolinas on Friday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families that will be impacted by this terrible event. Please be safe! Today I welcome back Chris Versace, co-founder and chief investment officer of Tematica Research. He’s an amazing stock analyst with over 20 years of experience. Chris is also a good friend. We worked together at The Street over 10 years ago. He has an incredible track record for finding great stock ideas ahead of Wall Street.   In this interview, Chris explains the easiest way for individual investors to find those ideas. He also shares several of his favorite picks… so be sure to have a pen and paper handy. Then, in my educational segment [48:26], I break down a sector most believe is dying a slow death. But fears have been blown out of proportion… giving you a great opportunity to buy these stocks at an incredibly cheap price.   Note: I suggest paying close attention to Chris Versace’s stock recommendations. The last time I interviewed a member from his team was in late June. She mentioned a stock idea that’s up about 60% in just over two months.

Rank #15: Ep. 521: Take Your Profits on This Tech Darling

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome back to another episode of Wall Street Unplugged.   This week I’m again joined by the one and only market veteran – Richard Suttmeier.   Rich has been analyzing stocks for over 40 years, is a weekly contributor for Forbes and TheStreet.com, and is the founder and CEO of Global Market Consultants.   As my frequent listeners know, Rich is probably the biggest permabear I invite on the show.   Our opinions almost always contradict...   Yet for this reason, he is an asset for all my investment theses… Why?   Rich has a knack for uncovering data no else seems to mention. He calls it "the balance sheet of the U.S. economy," otherwise known as the FDIC Banking Profile.   And although he uses this overlooked data to contest nearly everything I put on the table...  It always helps to hear the otherside.   If you own a stock, or a have any interest in a certain sector... you don't want to talk to the hundreds of people that love it. Instead, you want to hear from that one guy who hates it.   And Rich is that guy.   On today's show he brings the heat - focusing on the downside risks of oil, semiconductors, utilities, housing markets, and his favorite, the financial industry.   If you have bets on any of these sectors, let Rich challenge your perspective. It won't hurt.   Then, for today's Educational Segment [43:13], I’m breaking down a stock that the whole world’s in love with right now.   It’s a global tech “darling” and is part of a select group of stocks that essentially drives the entire market, also known as FANG.   But trading at 23 times earnings, after coming off four straight quarters of positive earnings estimates, I make the case for why it’s time to cash in… and take profits any off the table. Recent momentum has carried on just too far.   Good Investing,   Frank Curzio

Rank #17: Ep. 522: Frankly Speaking: Finding the next "Nuts & Bolts" Company

Podcast cover
Read more
“There’s only about one-hundred thousand of them…” he said. At the time, I was standing in the middle of what’s known as the largest building in the world - Boeing’s airplane-assembly facility in Everett, Washington. I was extremely interested in these planes, to say the least... The demand for Boeing’s new and revolutionary-efficient 737 is off the charts. It’s the company’s fastest selling jetliner in its 100 plus years of existence. The most recent model sells for just north of $119.2 million. And I was standing directly under the wing of one. In my 20 plus year career of investing, visiting different sites and projects all around the world, nothing was more intriguing to me than this one. Dan Schull, the Sales Director at Boeing, and probably one of the most important figures in the $6 trillion aerospace and defense industry, was personally guiding me (along with a small group of investors) on a private tour of the world-class property. Now at this point in the story, most would assume I am about to dive into why Boeing might be a top-notch investment.  After-all, the aerospace industry is in a supreme bull-market as we speak…  But that’s not why I’m here. What caught my attention… and what today’s show is all about is that “100,000” number. It was music to my ears when Dan mentioned it. That’s the number of parts it takes to build each one of Boeing’s next-generation 737 MAX aircrafts.  You see, those 100,000 parts yield over 100 different publicly-traded companies.  Companies I personally like to call “Nuts & Bolts” stocks.  It’s something my Curzio Venture Opportunities subscribers are all too familiar with. In fact, in recent months I provided subscribers with two recommendations surrounding what I saw firsthand, on that single day. But this is still a strategy common investors constantly overlook.  And it’s simply where the better opportunities are. Opportunities that have a much higher ceiling than their contracting partners that EVERYONE already knows about - companies like Apple, Microsoft, or Boeing. The strategy I unfold today focuses on the companies that actually leech onto these household names. As the larger companies (like Boeing) gain popularity on the street, pushing the stock price higher, these behind-the-scenes “nuts & bolts” companies take part in the ride up as well.  And because of their small size, share prices can often explode in a matter of 24 months.  When industry leaders produce their widely known products, (Apple iPhones, Boeing 737 airplanes, Amazon’s Alexa) they don’t actually make all the parts that go into them. Instead, they outsource the majority of the pieces, often coming from smaller companies. But unlike these smaller companies, industry giants rarely ever see massive short-term gains, even in bull-markets… And rarely ever get bought out either. Because, well, they’re industry leaders. The “nuts & bolts” companies are where the real margins are. And to top it off, these opportunities fly completely under-the-radar in mainstream media - giving us the advantage. Good Investing,  Frank Curzio Special thanks to James, Evan, and Ryan.  Keep the questions coming at frank@curzioresearch with “Frankly Speaking” in the email subject line. Other topics talked about: Should we really be waiting for a market pullback?... Why it’s time to sell your FANG stocks… and one car-rental company that could pop 20% within 6 months from now.
