Depression is one of the insurance agent’s worst enemies.

You can use the BRFSS portal system to see how depression is affecting different types of people in every state in the country. The federal government publishes the data free from copyright restrictions. That means you can extract data yourself and put the numbers in blog posts, social media posts, infographics or even ads.

    The other components to the story is Trump’s desire to slash the corporate tax rate to 15% from 35% and have a one-time “tax holiday” on repatriated cash. That could provide a serious lift to companies, with tech king Apple (AAPL) perhaps being the best example.

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock is off to a flying start in 2017. Shares of the Cupertino, California-basedtechnology giant are up nearly 22% in 2017, closing the trading session at a price of $140.88 per share. In comparison, the Nasdaq Composite (INDX:COMPX) is up 8.5% for the year while the S&P 500 (INDX:SPAL) has risen 4.6% in the same time frame. In other words, Apple stock has outperformed the broader market, and by a fair margin. Considering that we are only a quarter into the current year, the rise of AAPL stock hasn’t gone unnoticed. The short interest in Apple stock has risen steadily over the last few months, as the ‘bears’ expectation for a pullback has risen with every new high. Is it time to sell Apple stock? Or, is the AAPL stock still a good buy?

    The funnel system works so well, I’m going to use it today to describe my favorite investing strategy — buying into a long-term mega-trend. This is the method I used to invest in Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) back in 2014 at less than $20 a share. It’s the same method investors used to buy Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) decades ago, too.
