30-year financial insider, Frank Curzio, breaks down the mainstream media headlines, exposes the TRUTH about what’s really moving the markets, and brings you exclusive intel and actionable investment ideas directly from Wall Street pros.
The Bitcoin bull market is just getting started
Happy Valentine's Day. I hope your day is smoother than mine—I’m running around trying to make this a special day for my wife and daughters. Bitcoin has surged past $50,000 level—but we’re still in the early stages of this bull market. Last week, during Part 2 of my Crypto 2024 series, I explained why the next Bitcoin halving event will ignite several major crypto catalysts… and how to position yourself for windfall profits. If you missed it, don’t worry—you can watch the replay and schedule a one-on-one chat with me here: https://secure.curzioresearch.com/crypto24-bitcoin/event.php?utm_source=Curzio&utm_medium=240214_cci_crypto24_gy_wsu_Libsyn&utm_campaign=2402-CCI-Crypto24-GY&utm_term=Libsyn&utm_content=Libsyn. The markets went into panic mode after yesterday’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) data showed inflation is back. But some economists are already shrugging off the news. I go over some of the biggest risks investors are currently facing… and how to find winners in this volatile market. Ridesharing company Lyft (LYFT) surged over 60% after reporting earnings yesterday… before crashing back to Earth mere minutes later. I break down what caused the insane market movement… and question how the SEC allowed it to happen. Finally, I take a victory lap on my Super Bowl prediction. I hope you made my guaranteed bet. In this episode  Happy Valentine’s Day [1:11] Check out the replay of Crypto 2024 [2:17] Why are economists shrugging off the CPI?

Buy this 'Mag 7' stock right now
I spent some incredible quality time with my daughter this past weekend. We went to a concert and then spent the day at an amusement park. I wouldn’t trade experiences like these for anything… but they do remind me how old and fragile I’m getting. We’re facing several major headwinds right now—from geopolitical risks… to major layoffs… to the Fed pushing back interest rate cuts. Yet, the markets continue to march toward all-time highs. I break down why the market is brushing off these risks. We’re in the heart of earnings season… and so far, Big Tech has been putting up some impressive results. Next up to report is Nvidia (NVDA) on February 21. I share what I expect from the AI darling’s latest quarter… and whether I think it’s a buy vs. the other “Magnificent 7“ stocks.  I also highlight earnings from several other names, including Chipotle (CMG) and Roblox (RBLX)... and celebrate the fact that fundamentals are finally starting to matter again. Disney (DIS) is set to report earnings after the market closes today. Longtime listeners know the House of Mouse is one of my favorite whipping boys… so my expectations for the results (and the stock) may shock the hell out of you. Tomorrow at 7 p.m., I’m hosting Part 2 of my free Crypto 2024 LIVE series. I’ll dig into the Bitcoin ‘Super Halving’... and the handful of megatrends that will drive crypto up tens of thousands of percent over the next couple of years. Plus, I’ll answer your crypto questions on air. Don’t miss it!

This tech giant is a screaming buy
Big Tech companies—including Microsoft (MSFT), Alphabet (GOOG), and AMD (AMD)—are the latest to report their fourth quarter (Q4) earnings. And despite all three names posting relatively strong results, all three stocks are down. I dig into the numbers… and highlight which stock is a buy on the pullback—and which one will get crushed going forward. On tomorrow’s episode of WSU Premium, Daniel and I will break down several more earnings reports, and reveal our latest Dollar Stock Club pick.

I explain why this is a huge deal for businesses everywhere… and why Musk absolutely deserves his pay package. Bitcoin is once again above $42,000 after its brief pullback following the first Bitcoin ETF approvals a few weeks ago. I highlight why the pullback was expected… and the next major catalyst for the crypto space—which should send some projects surging over 10,000%. I’m holding a special FREE event next Thursday, February 8, at 7 p.m., where I’ll break down why crypto represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for investors… and how to position yourself to create generational wealth.

The good, the bad, and the sexy from CES 2024
I’m back in the office after attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024). I break down the various technologies that were on display—both the good and the bad—from wireless TVs and language processors… to autos and ESG… to the latest (surprising) sex tech. I also share my favorite hands-on experience from the show, which included a combination of augmented and virtual reality. Unsurprisingly, the theme that dominated the show was artificial intelligence (AI). I highlight how AI will impact the workforce (for better or worse)… and which companies have built an early lead in this space. Speaking of AI winners, in today’s issue of Curzio Research Advisory, I share one stock that investors have left for dead… But it’s poised for an incredible turnaround thanks to how it’s utilizing AI. Join today to get the recommendation. On tomorrow’s episode of WSU Premium, I’ll reveal more companies that caught my attention at CES 2024… and who the biggest winners will be as AI is implemented across a range of industries. Don’t miss it.

Frank Holmes: Bitcoin and gold are both set to soar
I’m currently in Las Vegas attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024). Make sure to follow me on X @FrankCurzio for live updates on the biggest tech trends of the year! I have a special episode for you today. I sat down with fan-favorite guest Frank Holmes—CEO and chief investment officer of U.S. Global Investors—for a wide-ranging interview. He starts by explaining why 2024 should be a bullish year… why he expects gold to nearly double from current levels… and which gold stocks he expects to outperform the rest. Next, Holmes, who’s also executive chair of HIVE Blockchain Technologies, shares his thoughts on crypto—including the ongoing debate about Bitcoin vs. gold… how he expects the market to react to the eventual launch of a Bitcoin ETF… the biggest headwind for the industry… what the upcoming Bitcoin halving will mean for crypto miners… and why Bitcoin could rise more than 400% over the next couple of years. In this episode  Frank Holmes’ outlook for 2024 [3:43] Can you be bullish on both gold AND Bitcoin? [9:07] These stocks will outperform as gold prices soar [19:15] How the market will react to a Bitcoin ETF [27:47] The biggest hurdle for the crypto industry [31:45] What the Bitcoin halving means for miners [37:15] Why Bitcoin could surge over 400% [51:03] Enjoyed this episode?

Apple is flashing major warning signs
Happy New Year! I kick off today’s show with a fun gambling tip I received while attending a college football game… and how it highlights some glaring issues with the college football playoffs. The stock market started 2024 on a down note, with the Nasdaq dropping 1.5% yesterday. I put the move into perspective… and explain why the “Magnificent 7” won’t lead the market this year. The market remains incredibly dangerous. I highlight some of the major risks I’m seeing across sectors, from housing to banking… as well as a couple of big geopolitical risks. Next, I explain why I’m shocked at Apple’s (AAPL) recent surge… why it’s uniquely vulnerable to one of the geopolitical risks I mentioned above… and why investors should be incredibly cautious on this market darling going forward. Finally, I reveal one sector I’m particularly bullish on for 2024. (Members of Curzio Venture Opportunities will receive one of my favorite ways to play it later this week.

Debunking Elizabeth Warren's crypto lies
I start today’s show with my take on the conflict unfolding across our nation’s universities… from the recent congressional hearing on antisemitism (and Bill Ackman’s fight to shake up Harvard’s leadership)… to issues of free speech and the politics behind climate change.   Next, I have a bone to pick with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy about a recent photo he appeared in (and who he’s with) as he tries to secure more military funding from the U.S.   By the time you listen to this podcast, Fed Chair Jerome Powell will have announced the Fed’s latest decision on interest rates. I share what I expect to hear… how the markets will likely react… and why Powell is in a tough spot.   Netflix (NFLX) made a major announcement that will shake up the streaming industry. I continue to pound the table on why Netflix remains the king of streaming… and why Disney is going down a dangerous path trying to compete in the business.   Senator Elizabeth Warren is on a quest to destroy crypto in the U.S. I break down her latest lie about digital assets… the insane legislation she’s proposing… and why her stance is incredibly hypocritical.   The crypto sector offers a life-changing opportunity for investors unlike anything I’ve ever seen. That’s why I’m holding a special event—Crypto 2024 LIVE—on December 19.
