The Next Test for Stocks

Stocks wasted no time making new highs in the wake of the agreement in DC to keep the shop open through January 15th. (Mark your calendars now for the next shutdown at that time ;-)

In the meantime the bull is riding high once again. But not all stocks will participate in the rally. Each will be judged independently on the merits of their earnings reports.

To align yourself for more profits this earnings season, be sure to use the free resources in each issue of Profit from the Pros. Just scroll down to the "Earnings HQ" section below. In particular, check out the Best Earnings ESP Stocks which are the ones with the best prospects to beat earnings and rise in price.

Why I'm Investing $117,238 In This Stock -Jeremy Phillips, Motley Fool Chief Technology Officer

This company is growing faster than Apple,, and Google combined. In fact, I'm so confident about its profit potential that I officially promised our legal team I would invest five times more than I own in any other stock. And hold it until at least January 2018. But I'd rather not go on my million-dollar quest alone... so I'm inviting you to join me! You don't have to invest $117,238. But whatever amount you choose to put in, I advise you to do it NOW.

The Greatest Single Investment Idea

No it's not "Buy and Hold Forever" or "Buy Low. Sell High." Instead, it rides the most powerful force impacting stock prices. For more than a quarter century, it has nearly tripled the market with an average gain of +26% per year. This has been verified by an independent accounting firm.

You can easily master it in your own home without a class or seminar. Don't miss the unique opportunity that ends today, October 18.
