But, if you’ve been looking to buy into Facebook, you’re being handed a good opportunity.

So today, I’ll let you know the skinny on what brought the stock down.

We’ll go over what the company’s facing in the near future.

And I’ll show you why now is the perfect moment to make a fat profit on the stock’s rebound…

This week, we have some urgent news about an altogether NEW breakthrough just “greenlighted” by the U.S. Government.

It’s a breakthrough so big, it has the power to create an entirely new industry – an industry that could be worth not just hundreds of billions of dollars – but over $1 trillion.

It’s an “offshoot” of the blistering hot marijuana business… and yet it’s 111 times larger.

Here’s what we mean…

There’s No Stopping This Market

The market’s resilience is something we can all appreciate in the midst of earnings season. Though investors feared that the market would shudder and test its lows, it never came anywhere close.

On this episode of Varney & Co., host Stuart Varney and Shah Gilani talk earnings – specifically, for our old friend, Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB). FB’s earnings arrive at the end of the bell today, and after hitting an all-time high this morning of about $216.81, it’s safe to say that Facebook should remain unshaken. Meanwhile, Instagram’s ad sales have tripled, and Microsoft Corp. (NasdaqGS:MSFT) has yet to disappoint.

Things are looking positive… And in the words of Shah Gilani, “There’s no stopping this market.” Click here to watch

With more than $247 trillion in outstanding debt across the globe, borrowers and lenders look like they hold the keys to the future of equity markets. 

But the reality is, bond investors and bond traders are the fulcrum between borrowers and lenders.

They are the ones who hold the future of equity markets in their increasingly slippery hands.

Here’s what’s weighing on bond traders and what plays you can watch if those slippery hands drop the weight of some the world’s debt mountain on equity markets

What to Watch for Before the Debt Bomb Hits

It’s easy to see things happening once they’ve started, but it’s hard to see the fuse burning down until right before detonation.

But there will be fallout from the coming debt bomb explosion.

The first sign that the fuse is lit will be higher interest rates, which will themselves be lit by percolating inflation. Or worse, an explosion of inflation.

Right now, inflation across the globe is benign. However, it’s percolating here in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Here’s what to watch for right before the bomb goes off on some part of the $247 trillion global debt pile

Five Companies Ready to Ride the Medical Marijuana Wave

Less than a month ago, the FDA made a monumental decision… They approved a cannabis drug called Epidiolex, made by GW Pharmaceuticals, to treat rare forms of epilepsy.

It will mean relief for thousands of suffering patients in the U.S., but the true impact of this decision extends beyond a single drug.

By approving Epidiolex, the FDA has essentially given the green light to dozens of tiny biotech companies that have been working for years – and, in some cases, decades – to develop cannabis treatments.  

Here’s an example…

247 Trillion Reasons Why the Market Could Tank

Talk about a hangover. The world’s got $247 trillion of debt hanging over its collective head.

If there’s a broken link anywhere along the chain of global connection, or if a big debt can’t be serviced, or rolled over, or there’s a default, there’s one thing I know for sure… Contagion will be swift, and stocks will throw up their gains quickly.

Don’t look now, but we’re getting to a breaking point thanks to escalating trade wars, emerging markets debts that have to be rolled over this year, and the fact that China’s stock market is already in the tank.

It’s like déjà vu all over again.

Here’s why the gigantic debt pile wasn’t a problem until now, and what’s happening again that could trigger a massive market selloff

Stocks are down right now due to the trade war, and some may be flocking to buy in this dip. But is that a good idea? Tariff talk is contagious, and the market is trembling because of it.

However, there are only a few stocks that exude such resiliency that nothing – not even a trade war – could push them from their thrones. In the latest installment of Varney & Co., Shah reveals which stocks should watch out during this period and which ones will remain unshaken.

This Trade War’s Next Casualty Could Be You

2 | By Shah Gilani

Yesterday, I covered the shots across the bow from both the U.S. and China in the growing trade war. Today, I’m going to take a deep dive into both parties’ next moves and how the markets would inevitably react. 

With the mid-term elections coming up in November, it looks like the Chinese are cleverly exerting pressure directly on the President and the Republican Party.

In a deft political move, the Chinese are targeting U.S. products coming out of “Red” states. Specifically, they are going after products made or grown in counties that voted for Donald Trump for President.

That’s putting pressure on Trump supporters, who are now at odds over losing income and jobs and still believing in the President’s agenda and politics.

And that’s not the only curveball China will be lobbing at the U.S.

Here’s what could happen next and how to protect yourself when these warning shots turn into all-out war
