Your top stock pick for May 12, 2021

Stocks moved lower this morning in early trading, one day after the Dow suffered its worst drop since February.  Inflation fears were validated by a spiking Consumer Price Index.  Inflation has accelerated at its fastest pace since 2008 with the CPI spiking 4.2% from a year ago.  The monthly gain was 0.8%, versus the expected 0.2%. 

President Biden wants to rebuild American infrastructure, but what about protecting the infrastructure we already have, like the cyber attacked Colonial Pipeline?

Our trade alert for today highlights a cybersecurity firm that solves the number one cyberattack vector – email.  

Software growth stocks in general have struggled in 2021. Cybersecurity stocks have lagged the broader market and software.  But the Colonial Pipeline incident could provide a lift, said RBC Capital analyst Matthew Hedberg in a report.

“Critical infrastructure has seen a number of cyberattacks recently with such threats having the potential for widespread disruption and national security implications,” said Hedberg.  “Given the stakes, it comes as no surprise that we expect cyberattacks to continue, which could force the public and private sector to re-evaluate and likely increase cybersecurity spending.”

The dreaded inflation numbers are in – and worse than we expected

The Consumer Price Index rise for April of this year versus April of last year was the sharpest rise that we’ve all seen since September 2008.

Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for an increase of 3.6%.

Which in and of itself is quite the spike.

Federal Reserve officials see the current rise as temporary and not likely to influence policy.

But what if it’s not? Here’s what you need to know…


Colonial Pipeline gas shortages widen: State-by-State breakdown

If you live on the East Coast of the United States, you might just have more trouble than usual when it comes to filling up your tank.

In fact, in some states, there is literally no gas left to pump.

Fuel shortages continue to worsen (and widen) across the East Coast as consumers are panicking and buying whatever they find in the aftermath of the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline. 

And it’s looking like we can thank the Russian ransomware group Darkside for our troubles. 

Here are the states where buying gas is getting tough. If not impossible…


Are you earning when you’re sleeping?

Earn while you sleep!

“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”

– Warren Buffett

If you’re reading this newsletter, it’s probably because you’ve already figured out that this quote isn’t more true.

Because if you settle for swapping your time for money, you’re eventually going to run out of time. 

So, if your money isn’t working for you right now, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you’ll wind up burning your candle at both ends. 

If you’re not making your money work for you, you’ll run yourself literally into the grave.

You won’t massive passive income overnight. It takes time. But if you don’t start now, you’ll be waiting even longer to make it happen.

If you’re still sitting on the sidelines, maybe now is a great time to start scooping up some dividend stocks…


More GOP states drop federal pandemic unemployment benefits early

If you thought that these unemployment benefits would last forever, you were wrong.

In fact, now there are an increasing number of states that are cutting off their federal pandemic unemployment benefits earlier than they’d planned. 

Right now, five more GOP governors are making the move to terminate the benefits, citing workforce shortages in their states. 

“While these benefits provided supplementary financial assistance during the height of Covid-19, they were intended to be temporary, and their continuation has instead worsened the workforce issues we are facing,” said Gov. Mike Parsons of Missouri, which has an unemployment rate of 4.2%. Benefits there will cease on June 12. “It’s time that we end these programs that have ultimately incentivized people to stay out of the workforce.”

Here’s what that could mean for you…

Joel Litman’s L.O.C.K. system has a proven track record

…of separating the winners from the losers in the stock market.

Like in 2016, when Joel was giving a speech in Munich… And his L.O.C.K. system zeroed in on potential trouble at BMW.

The investment world was all-in on the luxury car maker.

Nowhere more so than its native country, Germany.

So you can imagine the reaction when Joel stood on stage in Munich and told a crowd of German investors to sell their BMW stock.

People rolled their eyes and groaned. Many of them whistled, which is like booing in Europe.

But since then, BMW has dropped 40%…

The crowd was wrong. The L.O.C.K. system was right.

One particular sector of the market is on the verge of a crash.

And many popular stocks could drop like a rock.

As Joel says, “Most Americans are woefully unprepared for this massive market shift.”

That’s why he suggests all Americans need to do one thing before April.
