If you’re in your seventies, you’ll likely appreciate an investment that can provide you with a bountiful income stream, and ideally, one that’s set to grow steadily in the years ahead. Even better would be if this investment had a relatively low-risk profile that would help you sleep well at night. Best of all would be if this stock currently traded for a bargain price.
Fortunately, there is one excellent business that meets all of these criteria. Here’s why energy giant Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) fits the bill.

We have you covered. This week, we did our digging into the numbers, and we have found three stocks that could surge 80% or more in the months ahead. Let’s dig into them as the market opens… right here.
The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
A leaked report from a Chinese government think tank warned of “financial panic” across the country. In addition to concerns about the ongoing trade battle with the United States, the National Institution for Finance & Development warned about the ongoing use of leverage in the stock market. The think tank argued that China’s central bank must be ready to step in and support the nation’s markets (the Shanghai Composite is off 20% since January) in the event of a liquidity crisis. This morning, the U.S. Department of Commerce said that Q1 gross domestic product (GDP) growth slowed far more than analysts had expected. During January through March, we saw the weakest levels of consumer spending in roughly five years. GDP clocked in at just 2.0%, a downturn from the 2.2% reported by the agency last month. Markets appear to believe that the economy has rebounded during the second quarter thanks in part to the massive tax cuts in January. However, ongoing trade tensions and increasing uncertainty around the globe could potentially spur a panic at any time. In 2018, major telecom carriers will begin rolling out 5G networks across the country, and the development could be one of the biggest ever. This technological leap is creating some incredible profit opportunities fortech stocks. According to Swedish network equipment manufacturer Ericsson ADR (Nasdaq:ERIC), new 5G-related features could produce as much as $1.3 trillion annually in additional revenue for carriers by 2026. Just imagine how much money you could make if you get in early and invest right now in the top 5G stocks. It would be a fortune. Today, we show you the undervalued stock that is going to lead this revolution, and it could make you rich.
