2024 Resolution: Don't Suck at Investing
We received a lot of great 2024 financial resolutions in last week’s survey.
So today, I want to share some of the best ones… and tell you how Paradigm Press plans to help you stick with them throughout the year.
In fact, that’s my personal resolution — to make sure you have everything you need to achieve your investment goals over the next 12 months.
I’ll tell you more in a minute.
But first, let’s take a look at our Top Stories and the Reader Forum.
Your Top Stories & Analysis of the Week:
- “Elon Versus the Wine Box Women'' (Rude Awakening, Sean Ring): The mainstream media has gleefully reported troubles at Elon Musk’s X — formerly Twitter. But Sean says the eccentric billionaire has actually done the world a huge public service. He lists some things that Elon’s site has dragged into the light, exposing everything from Havard plagiarism to free speech hypocrisy.
- “2023’s Biggest Tech Winner” (Technology Profits Daily, Ray Blanco): Artificial intelligence stocks delivered huge gains last year. But Ray says another pioneering technology performed even better. In fact, you could have ridden it to 170% gains in the past 12 months. And it’s not over yet! Let Ray explain why its winning streak could get even stronger in 2024 and beyond.
- “Three Woke Narratives That Will Die in 2024” (Rickards Uncensored, Matt Insley and Byron King): In last week’s Rickards Uncensored broadcast, Byron and Matt discussed three commonly held beliefs that are about to fall apart. And with politicians about to hit the campaign trail, they will quickly become top-of-mind topics. I think you deserve to know the truth now, so I unlocked their interview for you.
Remember, we publish tens to HUNDREDS of stories. The write-ups and presentations above are our TOP ones for the week — including one that had been roped off from the public. If you want to stay ahead of the pack, make sure you’re caught up now.
And if you’d like to nominate any of our stories for next week’s “Top 3,” just let me know at email@example.com.
The Reader Forum:
First from the mailbag today, Hossam S. tells us about his recent interaction with a member of my team:
I wanted to thank Dave for all of his assistance with my account for Paradigm Press Group. Dave is a great asset to the company.
Our entire team is trained to exceed expectations, Hossam. But thanks for letting me know that Dave provided exceptional service. I’ll be sure to share this with him and the rest of the staff!
Next up, Paula M. tells us:
I subscribed to James years ago. I canceled because I couldn’t keep up at the time. I’m back now because if I had, I’d be rich by now.
Welcome back, Paula!
It’s true — James has led his members to some incredible gains over the years. But don’t let that bother you… because James thinks there are still plenty of big gains left to grab.
In fact, he’s tracking a major profit catalyst that could trigger as early as tomorrow. (More on that in a second.)
And I look forward to sharing this with James and his team.
Finally, we received a lot of feedback about Jim Rickards’ latest YouTube presentation, Biden Bucks: Coming for Your Money (and Your Freedoms). Some of the emails were the usual complaints that Jim is too political.
Cynthia N. speaks for many by saying:
My suggestion is to keep your politics out of your business. Unless that IS your business.
Thanks for writing in, Cynthia. And as I explained last month — and will probably need to repeat every month until the election — this is our business.
Wall Street and Washington, D.C., are more entwined than they’ve ever been. Whoever is in power has a huge say over whether you make or lose money.
Consider that these days, the stock market’s ups and downs largely revolve around the whims of the Federal Reserve — a group of government-appointed officials.
Or that the recent swings in cryptocurrencies can be pinned on an impending decision from the U.S. government’s Securities and Exchange Commission.
You may also remember that Congressional intervention led to a boom in solar power stocks before reality set in. Many went bust… and we’re seeing a similar situation starting to play out in electric vehicles, too.
Taxes… incentives… licensing… permits… embargoes… tariffs… even bans. They all start with elected officials and bureaucrats. And they affect your wallet every single day.
So if you want financial success, you can’t ignore how the government tips the scale in their favor.
That’s why our team will continue to offer their honest analysis based on careful research.
As always, you don’t have to agree with it… but please try to refute it before dismissing it based solely on your own political beliefs.
And that wraps up this week’s Reader Forum.
Remember, your feedback is vital to our success… so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions? I’ll get answers! Comments? Let me hear them! Problems? I’ll try to solve them!
This is YOUR forum!

Now, here’s what’s happening around the water cooler this week…
The Water Cooler — Upcoming Events and More
According to Drive Research, 80% of people quit their New Year’s resolutions before winter is over.
Nearly a quarter of adults abandon their resolutions in the first week of January alone!
Hopefully you won’t get discouraged so easily… especially if you shared your 2024 financial resolution with me on New Year’s Day.
Let’s dig into some of the responses I received — followed by what Paradigm Press can do to help.
Many members simply want to understand how to grow their wealth.
“I'm in a retirement year looking to learn investing and buying stocks,” says Tony R.
Lorena M. tells us, “my resolution is to invest in educating myself about finances and investing.”
Frederick S. wants to “learn options trading” and Joseph B. wants to “understand options trading better.”
And Riffit R. is looking to “learn how to better my stock-buying skills.”
The best place to start is our FREE Wealth Desk, which offers several primers on basic investment topics.
More reports are on the way in 2024. And you can tell me what topics you’d like to see covered at email@example.com.
Others were very specific about where they think they’ll find the biggest gains this year…
Richard G. wants “to make a modest profit using AI stocks.”
Steven B. is also looking “to add AI stocks.”
Arther W. tells us, “With AI set to upend the financial world, and change how everyday folks invest, I see the opportunity to at least double my portfolio.”
As you probably know, we were among the first to cover the AI boom at its infancy.
Recently, we even launched a full-team effort to cover the absolute best artificial intelligence investment opportunities — our Paradigm Mastermind Group.
And that’s not all…
As I type, we have a team of specialists preparing to visit the epicenter of AI innovation.
They’ll get the first-hand scoop on the technology’s next big wave — the one that will impact your everyday life.
More importantly, they’ll help you play it before Wall Street realizes that AI has reached this new stage — setting you up for massive AI gains as investors play catch up.
And expect me to revisit your 2024 Financial Resolutions throughout the year.
I will make sure we’re keeping you on track to meet your goals!
