Where to Put Your Money in 2018

It seems I find myself in a bit of a conundrum. I write a newsletter, Peak Income, dedicated to finding profitable income investments at a time when bond yields are rising and income-oriented investments are coming under pressure. As I write this, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yields just shy of 2.6%. As recently as September, the 10-year yield was touching 2%. That’s a big a move in a very short period of time. Hey, I get it. Some of this is understandable. The U.S. economy has picked up steam of late, growing at over 3% in each of the past […]

Our Most Important Campaign Deadline So Far Is Here – And Here Is The Shocking Reason I Am Not Asking For Any Money

The most important deadline that we have faced so far is at midnight on Sunday, but I am not going to ask you for any money.  I just want to say thank you to everyone that has donated, volunteered and prayed over the past six months.  Without all of your efforts, it would have been impossible for us to be within striking distance of victory here in Idaho’s first congressional district with just a little more than four months to go until election day.  When I first announced that I would be running, many people told me that it would […]

Money Metals Exchange Is Also Your Crypto/Metals HQ

Money Metals Exchange began accepting Bitcoin payments for gold and silver bullion nearly 3 years ago, putting us among the very first in our industry to do so. Today, we are announcing expanded services – both when buying and selling precious metals – using several crypto-currencies. We believe honest money is core to liberating people and protecting their savings. History is clear as to how the game of unrestrained government borrowing, printing, and spending will end. The holders of the world’s fiat currencies will wind up holding the bag. There can be no doubt that tangible, off-the-grid, gold and silver […]

For Clues On The Economy, Follow The Money

“There is nothing new on Wall Street or in stock speculation. What has happened in the past will happen again, and again, and again. This is because human nature does not change, and it is human emotion, solidly built into human nature, that always gets in the way of human intelligence. Of this I am sure.” –Jesse Livermore The profitability of lending/investing money is a function of both the rate of return on the money loaned/invested and the return (payback) of the money. The historically low interest rates are squeezing lenders by driving the rate of return on the loan […]

You Have to Follow the Money

John Del Vecchio really is a nice guy, I promise. But he doesn’t smile a lot. Maybe it’s because he grew up in upstate New York, where you can go weeks in winter without seeing the sun… or maybe it comes from the years he spent working as a forensic accountant and as a professional short seller. But John definitely has a serious, no-nonsense demeanor about him. And let me tell you from experience, you don’t want to be on the opposite side of a trade as him. This seems almost ridiculous now, given the company’s dismal performance, but many […]

Please Contribute To The 2017 Michael Snyder For Congress Money Bomb

Wouldn’t it be great if Congress was absolutely packed with strong constitutional conservatives that consistently fought for true conservative values?  It has been said that our government is a reflection of who we are as a people, and the only way that we are going to take our government back is if we fight for it.  I have talked to so many conservatives that are sick and tired of being betrayed by “Republicans in name only” over and over again, but the only way that we are going to break this cycle is if good people start running and if […]

There is No House Money… Only YOUR Money

Have you seen those Voya Financial commercials? The ones featuring cartoon, origami rabbits – one orange and one green? It opens with the orange rabbit explaining to a man, “I’m Vern, the orange-money retirement rabbit. I’m the money you save for retirement…” “Who’s he?” replies the man, pointing to the green origami rabbit. The orange rabbit answers, “He’s green money, for spending money today… you know, paying bills, maybe a little online shopping.” Now, here’s the thing… Both the “orange rabbit” and the “green rabbit” are identical. They’re both $ 1 bills. But Voya wants you to think about them […]

Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos And Warren Buffett Have More Money Than The Poorest 50% Of The U.S. Population Combined

The problem is not that we have a few people that are rich – the problem is that we have so many that are poor.  As you will see below, three extremely wealthy individuals have as much money as the poorest half of the nation combined.  In a free market capitalist society, there are always going to be some that do better than others, and there is nothing wrong with that.  But in our society today, there are so few that are doing well.  At this point a majority of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, and “one in […]
