It’s Wealth Week at Wyatt Investment Research.
The Wyatt Research Real Wealth Event kicked off Wednesday with a video presentation by options expert Andy Crowder, in which he outlined three options strategies for earning extra income without taking outsized risks.
Andy followed up the presentation with a special report released Thursday which details two specific trades to profit from an options strategy that Andy calls, “Arguably the most powerful strategy in the professional options trader’s tool belt.”
On Friday, I sat down with Chief Investment Strategist Ian Wyatt for a wide-ranging half-hour interview which covered everything from the impact of low interest rates and cheap oil to finding value in overvalued sectors like biotechnology and social media. Ian also revealed a pair of under-the-radar stock picks – one of which increased its dividend 35% last quarter with little fanfare.
The “Seven Days in May” Real Wealth Event runs through May 26. It continues today with a special report from growth stock guru Tyler Laundon, followed by a Q-and-A session on Sunday with income investing expert Steve Mauzy.

As a reminder, the markets will be closed Monday in observance of Memorial Day. But if you plan to use the long weekend to catch up on some reading, here are a few suggested articles from the past week:
The Best Airline Stock for Long-Term Dividend Income – Two major airline stocks announced stock buyback and dividend increases last week. But the better bet has a higher dividend yield and bought back $1.4 billion in stock over the last 12 months.
A Powerful IPO Trend Investors Can Harness – Private equity firms and business development companies are now holding more than $1.2 trillion in “dry powder” – money committed for private equity or IPO purposes but not yet invested – on the sidelines. Meanwhile, several recent high-profile IPOs – including fast-food chain Bojangles (NASDAQ: BOJA) – appear to have been structured around buying out private equity investors. Here’s how to play this recent IPO trend.
A Big Pharma Stock with a Very Big Dividend – The biggest dividend among Big Pharma stocks belongs to this company, which is now the largest supplier of over-the-counter medicines in the world.
Billionaire David Einhorn Bets Big on This Auto Stock – Hedge fund manager David Einhorn only makes a handful of big wagers every few years, but he’s betting very big on one auto stock which will increase its quarterly dividend by 20% next month to 36 cents a share.
Warren Buffett’s Image Tarnished by 3G Capital – How can anyone not like perhaps the greatest investor of all time? Especially a grandfather who dispenses investing wisdom to the masses in such a folksy way? But Daniel Loeb, founder of the $17 billion hedge fund Third Point Management, recently called out Warren Buffett for what he sees as a disconnect between his words and actions. On top of that, the Oracle of Omaha also took some heat from shareholders at the normally amicable Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) annual meeting for his relationship with Brazilian private equity firm 3G Capital.
Why Income Investors Should Buy These 2 Health Care REITs – Real estate investment trusts receive a favorable tax classification, and in exchange, are required to distribute the vast majority of their cash flow to investors as a dividend. And two health care REITs in particular are set to capitalize on a massive demographic shift in the United States, as an aging Baby Boomer population should provide the health care industry with a strong long-term tailwind.
Which Great Investors Are Buying (or Selling) Apple Stock? – May 15 marked the due date for institutional investment managers to file 13F forms disclosing stock holdings as of the final day of the first quarter. Among the revelations in the current batch of 13Fs is that billionaire investors such as Carl Icahn and Leon Cooperman appear to be split on the future of the world’s most valuable company.
Does Quantitative Easing Make European Equities a Buy? – The saying that it never pays to fight the Fed can easily be extended to any central banker on a mission, regardless of nationality. And the European Central Bank’s massive quantitative easing program could be the lift European equities need to emerge from the stagnant growth that has persisted since the Great Recession.
Keurig Kold Gets Freeze Out from Investors – Keurig Green Mountain (NASDAQ: GMCR) shares fell nearly 9% on May 15 after the unveiling of Keurig Kold, the company’s highly anticipated cold brewing coffee machine. Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) initially invested $1.2 billion for a 10% stake in Keurig last year, then soon after upped its stake to 16%. Has the Atlanta-based soda king miscalculated the market for the latest Keurig at-home beverage system?
Have a great holiday weekend!
