Don’t Make Any Important Financial Decisions Right Now – Except This One

With the presidential race in a dead heat, you’d be crazy to go out on a limb with your money. The only thing for certain now is what this chart shows – an inevitable scenario, no matter who wins. It could wipe out your life savings in a 24-hour period. Get on the right side of this before it hits – perhaps just after the election. Details here.

Proof It’s Not Too Early to Invest in 3D Printing‏

You continue to post thoughtful, intelligent comments and questions in response to my Era of Radical Change columns. Thank you.

This tells me we have a very savvy, active, and well-informed set of readers. I’m always eager to see what you bring to the discussion. Without your help and input, this column wouldn’t be so successful (or nearly as fun to write).

Of course, the sheer volume of comments I get makes it impossible for me to address them all individually along the way. But I promise to keep doing my best.

With that in mind, let’s tackle some of your latest queries…

Starting with a really interesting comment about 3D printing stocks.

Q: My background in materials strength and stress-strain analysis tells me we must expect a development period of some five to ten years until 3D-printing can become a real breakthrough in terms of manufacturing of mechanical parts. I would be cautious about investing heavily now in the hope of short or mid-term profits. ~ Al G.

A: Al, I can’t compete with your knowledge of materials, and I won’t even try.

But I do want to point out that we may be talking about two different aspects of 3D printing.

Clearly, there is a growing market for small businesses and consumers. These are lower-priced, entry-level printers. The cheapest mass market machine from a major company costs about $1,300. As Al points out, that’s not going to give you solid, working metal parts that you might want to use in a car or a plane or for a lathe in a machine shop, for that matter.

However, many big companies are buying much more robust, expensive printers and putting them to good use throughout their supply chains. One publicly traded company for your radar screen is Stratasys Inc. (NasdaqGS:SSYS).

This firm is going after more of the upper end of the market – big outfits that can work this tech into their manufacturing lineups. As regards investing, you should always be careful. But I don’t think it’s too early to make money from 3D printing stocks.

And here’s proof…

This is, hands down, the hottest trade you can make…

You’ve heard the buzz about trading the VIX, the Volatility Index. Few know how to do it, but it could make you a fortune in 30 to 90 days, usually with a single move. Once you know how to track the VIX and time your trade, you’re off to the races. Double, triple, even quadruple gains are common. And it doesn’t matter whether you have $100 or $10,000 to put to work for you. And it is a blast, to boot. To see how this works and try it for yourself, just to see the details.
Q&A With Shah: Now Is a Time to Come Together

We’ve got some really good Q&A today, thanks to some really good comments and questions from you folks.

But before we dive in, I want to say something about the storm that hit the U.S. this week.

Personally, I was lucky: Hurricane Sandy only brushed by my home in the Northeast.

But there are so many individuals, families, and businesses that weren’t so lucky. They are dealing with everything from serious inconveniences to horrific tragedies.

My heart and prayers go out to all of you who are trying to recover from this truly devastating storm. I especially feel for those of you who lost family members, friends, partners in life, and your beloved pets.

I’ve had a glimpse of the devastation you’re feeling. My girlfriend’s amazing mother, sister, family members, and many, many dear friends live in Breezy Point and in the Rockaways. I was just there for her brother Johnny’s wedding.

The home on the beach I stayed in is flattened. Her mother’s house is a wreck. And many, if not most, of their other family members’ and friends’ homes burned to the ground, were flattened, or drifted out to sea.

Between the loss of lives and the horrific devastation, there’s nothing much left of this once beautiful community where everyone knows everyone else and no-one locks their doors.

Breezy and the Rockaways will rebuild. That’s what New Yorkers do.

They fight for their neighbors, their communities, their city, their state, and America. Their citizens will come together as neighbors and friends to help each other.

Because that’s what Americans do. This is who we are.

In the meantime, I send my sincerest regards and deepest sympathies to those of you suffering tragic losses.

Okay. Now let’s get started with your comments on “Big Bank Protectionism.”

Q: What happened to our antitrust laws? ~ Ron

A: Good question, Ron. They are there to be used when competition is deemed to be in the public’s best interest. In the case of big banks, “too big to fail” is what’s in the public’s interest – at least, if you go by what politicians are doing, as opposed to what they are saying. Get it? They’re all for big banks because those monsters pay them monster amounts of hush money to leave them alone.
