Want to know if you’re ever going to make real money in the investing game?
It’s not hard to tell if you’ve got the "smart money" mentality — the mindset necessary to most effectively leverage risk into profit.
In fact, in this day and age, it’s easier than ever.
I can tell you, inside of two questions, whether you’ve got it or not.
Feel like taking the test? Here it is:
- Do you believe that investor confidence is at a low point right now?
- Are you searching for something to buy?
I’m going to assume you answered yes to the first question, because if you didn’t you’re not living in the same reality as I am.
If you answered no to question two, I’m sorry to say that you’re probably better off hiring a wealth manager to take care of your assets while you work or travel or do whatever it is that you do.
If you answered yes to the second question, however, congratulations. You have the instinct required to make the biggest investment gains at the most opportune moments.
I’m saying all this because some of the most opportune moments, perhaps of the last two decades, are taking place right now, as you read this.
"The time to buy is when there's blood in the streets," wrote British nobleman and legendary banker Baron Rothschild, adding, “even when that blood is your own.”
The quote goes back to the 18th century and is today one of the most cited and one of the most misattributed statements in the entire continuum of financial wisdom, but it remains as true as ever.
Opportunity Isn't a Vibe — It Presents Itself Clearly and Objectively
This is so because the reality it describes is too simple to be false.
When times are tough, markets collapse and all valuations are diminished, regardless of fundamentals, regardless of demand, and regardless of long-term trends.
Which means it’s in those exact moments that the actual mathematical risk in any investment affected by the downturn is at its lowest.
Crazy concept, right?
Emotions lower valuations, and when the cold, hard realities finally catch up, recovery and growth come back.
It’s so predictable it’s almost seasonal.
And it’s that very fear that the retail hordes — otherwise known as the "dumb money " — bring to the market that opens these opportunities up for the smart money.
So now that we’ve reviewed that basic concept, I guess the question is: What are you doing with this opportunity? What are you searching to buy, now that you know your long-term risk has been eroded by the kindness of the jittery masses? Join Wealth Daily today for FREE.

There Is Smart Money… But There Is Also Smarter Money
In my experience, the opportunities are tiered based on just how much phantom risk the smart investor is willing to take on.
Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) is about 30% off its peak of 2021, so that’s a bargain.
Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: META), formerly known as Facebook, is down about 40%.
So is Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), which topped out at $175 in the summer of 2021 and now trades for $105.
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) was down about 25% from its end-of-2021 highs, but it’s already bounced back and is down barely 8% now, illustrating just how certain you are to profit if you make the cool-headed call when it counts.
Now, those stocks are all fine and will probably give you double-digit returns before the year is out, but if you’re a real speculator, you’re going to exclude all of those plays because they’re already giant — in fact, the biggest in their respective industries — even with the recessionary contraction.
What if I told you that there’s a company out there that’s been de-risked by as much as 65% but is also on the cusp of introducing a completely new type of rechargeable battery to the consumer market?
Revolutionary Product, Massive Industry, Growing Demand… Shares Trading at a Bargain?
This battery lasts up to three times as long as a lithium-ion battery, holds twice as much charge, and charges up to 70 times as fast.
That’s no typo. A battery like this in your phone will go from dead to 100% charged in less than a minute.
Installed in your electric vehicle, you’ll be able to charge it in less time than it takes to pump a tank full of gas, and you won't have to charge again for an entire month.
These batteries are much safer, with nearly zero overheating and fire risk, and, perhaps best of all, they can be sourced by the company completely independent of external suppliers.
The reason for this is that the cathode doesn’t contain lithium or any other hard-to-produce elements.
In fact, the principal cathode material is created in-house, using a proprietary production method requiring nothing more than natural gas and electricity.
Two years ago, this company's stock was trading at $4.30, with a valuation of almost $500 million.
Today, it’s down to under $1.50, despite the fact that the company is about to go commercial with its sector-disrupting tech.
Waiting for Share Prices to Rise Isn't How Money Is Made
That’s what I mean when I talk about mathematical risk. Right now true risk is at a minimum because so many shareholders have fled to wait out the storm.
What are they waiting for to buy back in? A market recovery? New highs for the stock?
You buy low and sell high. It’s that easy.
And yet… it’s that hard.
There's one thing you can count on, however: Those same Molly Ringwalds who jumped ship the moment things got rocky are going to be the first to buy in when things start looking up again — and they'll keep buying.
If you want to learn more about these new batteries and the remarkable and completely overlooked company that’s going to be bringing them to market in the coming years, I’ve got an informational video that’ll fill in all the blanks.
It’s quick, informative, and fascinating. You’ll never look at a rechargeable battery the same after you view it, that much I can promise.
