The Billionaire's Side of Story
You don’t get much closer to someone than being named the best man at his wedding. That’s exactly the role Donald Trump served for Phil Ruffin, the billionaire casino magnate. He owns the Treasure Island Casino and the New Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Obviously, Donald Trump has a long history with casinos. But Trump and Ruffin has more in common than Trump with the casinos. In the wedding where he served as best man, Ruffin married his third wife: a 26-year-old model and former Miss Ukraine.
They are clearly quite the kindred spirits.Ruffin was ranked 814 on the Forbes list of world billionaires with a net worth of $2.6 billion.
Trump is also in regular contact with another casino magnate: Sheldon Adelson. He owns the Las Vegas Sands Corporation (NYSE: LVS). He ranked as number 20 on the Forbes billionaires list with a whopping net worth of $35.9 billion.He’s also the grand pooh-bah of Republican donors. He was the largest donor to Trump’s campaign, shelling out$25 million. Hell, he even kicked in another $5 million for the inauguration celebrations.
I’m guessing the Casino industry will certainly be treated well under President Trump.
If you were to play the casino connection, I’d go with VanEck Vectors Gaming ETF (NYSE: BJK). This fund approximates the S-Network Global Gaming Index.
Its major holdings are:
- Las Vegas Sands Corp — 7.88%
- Sands China Ltd — 7.64%
- Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd — 7.31%
- MGM Resorts International — 7.22%
- Aristocrat Leisure Ltd — 6.24%
Again, Sheldon Adelson owns the Las Vegas Sands.
For better or worse, gambling is a great business in good times and even in bad. BJK is the best ETF that lets you play the global casino market in one fell swoop.
It has 36.7% exposure in the U.S., 15.3% in Australia, and 11.5% in China.
But there is one industry that most people don't consider when they think about investing in the Trump era, and it could be the most lucrative of all.
Trump’s dump of the Paris Climate agreement was clearly a big deal — and it made a number of his business advisers, rather angry. Thirty major American company leaders even teamed up to write a letter urging him to reconsider.
But while these companies were hemming and hawing, there is one sector that could seriously benefit from a move towards American energy independence: nuclear power.
You see, most people think that Trump was merely sticking up for Coal Country when he trashed the climate deal. 68% of West Virginia voted for him, one of the most overwhelmingly lopsided votes I’ve ever seen in an election.
And he very well may be sticking up for coal.
But in order to have any impact on global emissions, he’s going to have to make some moves. One will be to start utilizing more nuclear power. It's cleaner than coal and natural gas, and accounts for over 20% of U.S. energy production.
A presidential memo described ways to keep nuclear reactors “operating as part of the nation’s infrastructure.”
Trump himself has expressed his support for nuclear power in the past. In an interview with Fox News he said,
“Nuclear is a way that we get what we have to get, which is energy. I’m in favor of nuclear energy, very strongly in favor of nuclear energy.”
My new book, “The Truth Behind the Investing Game” is all about revealing the truth, so here is something about the 2% gang that controls 98% of the worlds wealth are saying but doing something completely different with their money.
Yes, after pulling out of the Global warming rigged game, the big-name CEOs are publicly trashing Trump, what they don’t tell you is that they are heavily invested in nuclear power.
- Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, has invested $35 million into the nuclear resource
- Jeff Bezos, of Amazon, invested $19.5 million
- Billionaire founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel, staked $2 million.
- Even Trump “hater” George Soros threw his hat in the ring, investing a whopping $126 million.
I have seen this coming for quite some time, this a whole new trend emerging below the surface of what the public sees ...as you are not invited to the profit party.
My new E-Book, “Trumped! The Ultimate Art of the Deal - New Investment Era”is out and is yours FOR FREE.
