This Mega-Cap Tech Company Has Made a Big Move Into Marijuana

11 | By Michael A. Robinson

The move to decriminalize and legalize cannabis is one of the great social sea changes of our age.

Consider this: In the United States alone the sanctioned market for cannabis will reach $7.1 billion this year, up from $1.5 billion in 2013 – 373% growth in barely three years.

By 2020, the market for legal marijuana will top $22.8 billion. Investment bank Ackrell Capital predicted in March that between 2016 and 2029 the market for marijuana will reach $100 billion – 1,308% growth.

Those huge numbers hide the fact that this market is still in its infancy.

After all, marijuana is still illegal in most of the United States. For that reason, there’s no accurate way of really knowing just how big this market could ultimately be.

However, one big-name tech company is positioning itself to profit as medical and recreational marijuana goes mainstream.

You could consider it an “entry point” into the wider world of the very young field of legal marijuana investing. This stock is about as safe and solid an investment as you’ll find – and it pays a generous dividend.

Still, this is a company that’s again on the rise thanks to its big moves in marijuana and other high growth fields – and so you can expect significant double- and even triple-digit gains from this “marijuana major” in a pretty short period of time.

You won’t believe what this “pot stock” is…

To Become the “Socrates of Tech Investing,” You First Must Know Thyself

2 | By Michael A. Robinson

In Plato’s Republic, protagonist Socrates takes the Delphic aphorism “Know Thyself” as his personal motto.

It’s a great motto… especially for investors.

As a market veteran of many years, I can tell you that this is one of the biggest weaknesses most investors have.

They don’t know themselves…

I watch as folks take losses and miss out on profits – mistakes they could have easily avoided if they’d only taken the time to know their investing personalities just a little bit better.

So today I want to demonstrate how to transform yourself into the “Socrates of Tech Investing.”

It’s easier than you’d think.

And the profits you’ll reap will make it well worth your time…

Use These “Red Bull Strategies” to Stay Awake in This Sleepy Market

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

“Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.”

-Warren Buffett

It’s tough to argue with the “Oracle of Omaha.”

And Warren Buffett is right: Investor “folly” creates some of the biggest moneymaking opportunities you’ll find in stocks.

Just look at the go-nowhere market we’ve been seeing in recent weeks. Stocks may plummet one day only to soar the next – all because of the bearish or bullish economic statistic du jour – but they’ve stayed in a very tight range for close to eight weeks.

When we reach the end of this year, I believe that the tech investors who stayed in the market – and selected the best stocks, with my help – will see that they’ve been rewarded for their courage. Those who spent 2016 on the sidelines will be penalized for their caution.

That prediction probably won’t make it any easier for you to stomach the moves, or non-moves, I expect we’re going to continue to see in the near term.

But I do believe my trading strategies will help…

You see, knowing how unnerving quiet periods like this one can be, I put together a short list of trading rules that I use during tough stretches like this. They’re based on the strategies I use to guide trades in my paid services – Nova-X Report and Radical Technology Profits – but I’ve “tightened” them up a bit to better control risk.

And today I want to share those strategies with you.

Red-BullRight now, I’m calling them my “Red Bull Trading Strategies” – a joking reference to the energy drink. But the fact is that these strategies will help keep you wide awake during this sleepy market – and not just because they reduce your risk.

Just as important is the fact that they’ll keep you invested.

That means you’re still making money.

And it also means you’re not getting left behind.

Because, let’s face it: While navigating a risky market can cause some sleeplessness…

Getting left behind is a nightmare…

Decision 2016: This Choice Will Create Wealth… No Matter Who Wins the White House

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

No matter how the U.S. presidential election turns out, one thing is clear: We need to protect ourselves from Washington.

After all, once the election is over, we’ll be right back to epic gridlock – debt-ceiling battles, filibusters, blocked treaties, presidential vetoes, etc. – and the problems in the market all that can cause.

Unfortunately, just taking steps to protect ourselves isn’t enough.

You see, we also need to send a message – to let the “Inside the Beltway” crowd know that we’re less than thrilled with their brand of “leadership.”

Fortunately, there’s one move that will fulfill both of these objectives.

It will provide you with some protection against Washington’s malfeasance.

And it will tell the Capitol Hill fraternity that their lack of concern about Main Street Americans is no longer acceptable.

I like to refer to this as “Beltway Bandit Insurance.”

And if you execute it correctly, this insurance strategy will pay off by fattening your tech portfolio.

Silicon Valley Has a Secret “Watch List” – and Now You Can, Too

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

I’m going to let you in on a Silicon Valley secret.

It’s a secret that the leaders of the U.S. tech sector guard very closely.

And I only know about it because I regularly talk to the senior industry executives as I make my rounds out here.

Each and every leader of the top tech players maintains a secret “Silicon Valley Watch List” – in essence, a ranked short list of companies they’d one day like to buy.

These “target companies” share a lot of qualities. They’re well run, offer great products, generate excellent cash flow, and are either profitable now or have the potential to be in the near future.

These “Watch List” companies are so good, in fact, that once they’re purchased, they immediately bolster the suitor company’s bottom line.

If those characteristics sound familiar to you, it’s with good reason.

You see, those are essentially the qualities that I’ve repeatedly detailed for you in Your Tech Wealth Blueprint.

And today I’m going to show you some great examples of “Silicon Valley Watch List” companies that turned into mega-deal buyouts – and demonstrate how you can set up your portfolio to grab a share of these tech-sector windfalls.

And the profits are huge.

One recent deal netted investors a single-day windfall of 47%…

My “Early Warning” System for Maximum Tech Profits

If you want to learn how to double your money investing in high-tech stocks, let’s take a look back…

Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), the electric carmaker found its shares up 457% for the year to date at the end of September 2013  – including a five-day surge of 52%.

Today, let’s take a few minutes to understand the five catalysts behind what was happening there.

All five of those catalysts are the same things we still hope to see when searching for stocks about to burst – so today’s investors will find this history lesson worth studying.

Introducing “Wearapeutics” – and the Best Way to Get the Most Profits Out of It

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The Internet of Everything, a vast network of devices like phones, watches, clothing and even toothbrushes – all communicating, all collecting and returning data – has been one of the biggest tech stories of the past five years.

But I’m here to tell you that it’s about to get even bigger, even more profitable, by an order of magnitude. That’s because the Internet of Everything is about to crack open the healthcare market, with small networked wearable medical, prosthetic, and therapeutic devices set to explode onto the market.

I’m talking about wearable therapeutics – or “wearapeutics.” It’s going to be a healthcare game changer.

Today, I’m showing you just how big the wearapeutics market is going to get – and the one investment you need to hold long term to get the most profits out of this exciting development.

The “Earnings Recession” Just Gave Us Two Big “Buy” Opportunities

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

After living through a few, you know all about “recessions.”

A recession is two consecutive quarters of declining gross domestic product (GDP). While it may feel like it at times for some folks, according to economists, we’re not in a recession.
However, now that we’re right in the middle of first-quarter it looks like we might be seeing the third straight quarter in which S&P 500 stock profits are lower on a year-over-year basis.

That puts us in an “earnings recession.”

You can blame this recession on market volatility, the Chinese and European slowdowns, slumping oil prices and/or and widening credit spreads in the bond market.

Whatever the case, this “earnings recession” just offered up a chance to buy two prime tech stocks at steep discounts.

Let’s take a look at them…

36 Reasons Tech Investors Should Watch the Super Bowl This Sunday

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

Many of my friends and colleagues in Silicon Valley are disappointed by the lack of Oakland Raiders or San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s big game.

But really, even with this community’s two favorite teams missing, Super Bowl 50 could re-brand itself as the Silicon Valley Bowl.

First off, the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers are set to square off in Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium, right in the heart of the Valley.

Moreover, CBS Sports is using the edgiest, most innovative camera technology I’ve ever seen to record and broadcast the game.

For instance, the pylon camera makes it Super Bowl debut this year. With these high-resolution cameras – stuffed inside all eight end-zone pylons – fans will get a field-level view of the action in 2K resolution. And the aerial Wildcat camera can travel 25 mph – twice as fast as previous SkyCams – along its web of wires above the field, meaning it can outrun the players.

But I’m most excited about a new replay camera system that gives one of the trends we’ve long been following here a Super Bowl debut.

Sports broadcasting serves as a testing ground and showcase for TV and camera technology – after all, last year’s game was the most-watched show in U.S. television history. And so the debut of this new replay cam tells me that ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV) is primed to become widely adopted by global consumers.

This technology is now so significant that it’s beginning to disrupt the entire TV sector – enough so that UHDTV sets will earn a 50% market share by the end of this decade – making them a $30.4 billion market.

That’s a market that promises to be highly profitable – and so we want to grab a piece of it.

Here’s how we’ll do it…
