As a general rule, the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information

“There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May he live in interesting times.’ Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history.” – Senator Robert F. Kennedy, in a speech in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1966
RFK’s “Chinese curse” meme seems appropriate to the coronavirus crisis the world has been struggling through for the past two months. We know covid-19 came from China, and its effects have certainly changed the way we live, work, conduct business and travel. Several people I’ve talked to comment wryly on how the new normal sure is “interesting”.
Editorials are full of predictions about how life will never be the same, now that covid-19 appears to be with us for the long haul.
I offer no comment as to what is coming, but as a smart investor, I want to know how to position myself, and my subscribers, to benefit – what to do to make sure “the trend is your friend”.
