When guys get together someplace, there is eternally some sport to talk about, but then there is always time to run through what investment escapades one or the other has been through lately. No one is really kind to their money managers in these conversations either; but what are those poor managers to do? It’s a challenging market for them – and they don’t get a set fee for their services; they work on a 1percent commission. They really would not be standing by watching your investments take a dive if they could help it; their paychecks are taking a dive also. And they are so sick of seeing their incomes disappear month after month, they are looking to fresh ways to invest money, to bring their salaries up to speed. New, unorthodox ways.

Mostly, money managers are not so pleased with the customary thinking, that investing in stocks is the best way forward. If you would read any professional investments magazine for the people who manage your money, alternative investments is something they can’t stop talking about. What exactly is ‘unconventional’ as they mean though? They just mean investments that are not welded to the stock indexes and the treasury bonds. They are considering pointing their clientele to ways to invest money like buying up farmland, investing in managed commodity futures funds, and different unrestrained mutual funds. So what is all this business with the farmland?

Farmland investment has been rather popular for a while. Of course, you do need a certain minimum funding to get into this, normally about $120,000. You can purchase a dozen acres of farmland, lease it out to those who till the land, and collect your $3000 royalty check every year. And since land is forever in demand, you could forever sell it to get your money back, and then some. Why, in the last 15 years, land prices around the corn belt have risen approximately 7% yearly. But land prices do fall, and there is no real guarantee. In Iowa, land prices frequently lose about half their value once every 5 years or so, and rise up to gain a quarter in the following years. But there is a certain pleasure involved in making your wealth tilling the ground, even if by remote control.

Managed commodity-futures funds offer some really good ways to invest money. And they’re pretty exotic too. What they do is they buy a stock call option on anything they think is going to be hot in upcoming years, livestock, grain, or anything. And they hope that that product comes to be in demand. It doesn’t take much money to bet on the future in this way, and so many people could crowd towards this soon. Investors seem to be making a lot of money this year on this kind of investment. You don’t go to an everyday stockbroker, you go to a commodities trading advisor for this. Your broker or advisor will charge something like a fifth of whatever you make. These used to be just for the large investors until of late. But hedge fund sponsors are now bringing the market to you and me. You are able to get in with $8000.

It could actually be time to get out there and find new ways to invest money; the traditional avenues have not in fact been very kind to us lately.

And it’s Time to Make Back Every Cent They Stole From You. I’m Going to Show You How. Dear Investor, With all the “good news” in the market, you’d think the Dow was headed up to 20,000 by this time next month!

Headlines like these are lighting up the airwaves…

‘The Economy is on the Mend…’

‘Now That the Recession is Over…’

‘Stocks to Help You Profit From the Recovery…’

… and blinding a lot of people to what’s really in front of them. This is why you should turn off the TV when you’re making important decisions about your money. There are many good investment opportunities that are ripe for the picking right now, but Wall Street is happy to shield you from anything that doesn’t fatten their pocketbooks. To be a successful investor or trader, you have to be a contrarian. You can’t just buy-and-hope — stocks are going to soar and sink, and you must be flexible enough to jump on the trend and hold on tight, no matter in which direction it’s going. One of the easiest ways to make money is when stocks are standing still! Find out how >>

So … What About That Recovery?

The market goes up a few points — or simply doesn’t drop too much — and suddenly it’s a foregone conclusion that the economy is springing back to health. But no matter how many “Get Well” cards we send to wish it a “speedy recovery,” it’s going to take time. Sure, there’s a recovery in progress. It just happens to be in a hospital bed and the government is wheeling it down the hall. If the economy tried to stand up on its own, its knees would buckle and it would end up as nothing more than a crumpled mess on the floor. But, maybe that’s what has to happen before a true recovery can begin in earnest. Is the market headed down? Find out how you can profit from falling stocks with a fraction of the risk that comes with ‘shorting’ shares >>

Your Financial Recovery Can Start as Soon as Today

Your portfolio might seem like it’s strapped to a gurney as well. But with retirement closing in, bills to pay, vacations to take and financial peace of mind to achieve still high upon your to-do list, you don’t have time to wait. Whether the market’s going up, down or not heading anywhere at all, there are options strategies to take advantage of each condition. And if you’re starting out with a small amount of capital — you can make any size portfolio perform like a bigger one! Find out how easy it is to simulate a full stock position for just pennies on the dollar with options.

It’s back to business-as-usual at the banks. You remember them — the guys we bailed out and they thanked us by giving themselves record bonuses. Meanwhile, the rest of us are left to root through the couch cushions for spare change to rebuild our investment accounts. People are enraged not just at Wall Street, but also at the government for letting the Street get away with such bad behavior. The only thing saving this market is earnings season, but those quarterly corporate reports are about to dry up pretty soon. When those are gone, where else will the “positive news” come from? Options can help you to capture moves in front of earnings before they even take place. Find out more here >>

Leak No. 21

The fact is, earnings have been serving as a finger in the dam, so to speak. The economy or the markets spring a leak, and a “good” report serves to plug the hole. But what happens when we run out of fingers and toes — how much of a mess are we going to have on our hands after that 21st hole explodes? As if you didn’t have enough reasons to be suspicious of Wall Street, let me ask you, how do you think these companies are reporting Wall Street-beating estimates?

Many companies are low-balling their estimates, and analysts are setting their expectations even-lower. So, it’s really not hard to beat estimates when the limbo bar is affixed firmly on the ground! Many companies are saying that they’re seeing “signs of growth.” Well, they’ve been saying the same thing for the past four quarters. Either there’s growth or there isn’t; signs don’t mean much of anything!Find out how to grow your portfolio in any market condition…The Status Quo isn’t Changing; The Way You Invest Must!
