Six days a week, The Rich Investor team keeps you current with every ebb and flow of the market. With coverage of all markets, both foreign and domestic, we focus on all things trading and how to generate income, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility, risk and more.

In the age of volatility, you need a level head and confidence that your investing strategy will handle the unexpected. Our editors help take the emotions out of investing with regular commentary about the benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.” We make it our mission to hunt down companies using aggressive accounting to bamboozle their investors.

The same we use to identify bad companies with low-quality earnings are turned around to find good, underpriced companies with good management and honest bookkeeping. These are the profitable gems hiding in plain sight, we’ll help you discover.

For those working hard on building their 401(k), retirement planning is entirely personal, but everyone’s strategy for saving should share one common thread: the importance of generating income.

But creating reliable and consistent income streams can be tough, and fleeting, especially as we age, and the markets ebb and flow.

Aside from maxing our 401(k)s, many of us are searching for ways to generate income and cash flow, as retirement approaches. The editors at The Rich Investor deliver unique insight into new income and profit opportunities to provide more peace of mind about heading into those golden years.

Your go-to source to help drown out the noise and constant feed of financial information and commentary, let us help you make sense of the volatility and unpredictability of the markets along with all the issues that come with investing. Read all about the strategies we recommend… and the ones we don’t in The Rich Investor.
