Top Cheap Stocks To Invest In 2019

I went "whole hog" on a trade in my monthly newsletters, investing in one particular country over the last month.   I'm talking about Japan.   You NEED to be in this trade. Let me briefly explain why…   About a month ago, I recommended Japan in my True Wealth Systems newsletter as my top idea. Not long afterward, I followed that up with a different Japan play, making it my top recommendation in my flagship True Wealth letter.   The reason was simple: We had EVERYTHING we wanted to see in a trade…   Everyone hated Japan – nobody was even paying attention. And Japan was cheap and in the start of an uptrend. That's what I want to see!   Just in the last week, the rest of the investment world has started coming around to my way of thinking…   For example, investment bank Morgan Stanley just went "whole hog" on Japan, according to CNBC.com. "Morgan Stanley 'double upgrades' Japan equities," the news service wrote last week.
