That was a question I received from a media outlet today for a piece they were writing. The writer asked if I had any recommendation on Nintendo, Google, Apple or the video game ETF, GAMR? In the old days, I would have likely pimped myself and forced a recommendation so I could be quoted because that's what they are looking for. What I wrote to them is very unlikely to be published because it's not sexy enough to publish. However, I'm going to share it with you so you can learn. Just because there is buzz right now, doesn't mean there's any opportunity. You're saying invest, which is a long-term approach. Pokemon Go is likely a short-term spike. The ETF (GAMR) is a terrible idea because it barely trades. It traded only 4950 shares today! That means liquidity is poor and because of that, there're no options listed for it. Americans can't buy Nintendo stock because it doesn't trade here in the states. If I could, I would be in the position to place a short-term bet against shares after soaring over 60% in 5 days, which is $9 billion in market value added. Yeah, there was was an opportunity for short-term traders who all jumped in following each other pushing prices higher. However, I don't know how you can view this as an opportunity for a long-term play. There might be interest in apparel and the app, but nothing meaningful to a bottom line of a major company like Google, Apple or Nintendo. Creating success in the financial markets is not about chasing the craze. People will write engaging articles, but that doesn't mean you throw money at it. It's about staying disciplined and knowing your edge and how to find opportunities. If you want to learn how to block out the noise and learn the discipline needed to maintain your edge and find the right opportunities for success trading options, then you're going to love what you read in the book: To your wealth, freedom and options!
