Despite What This “King” Says, Trump’s Plan Will Inflate These Tech Plays

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The market has had a blistering run since Nov. 8 – with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 9% — but plenty of the “experts” on Wall Street are pessimistic about Donald Trump’s effect on tech stocks.

These folks believe that Trump’s tough trade stance will hurt tech because the big global players manufacture many of their products overseas.

“I would avoid [big tech stocks] in a big way,” DoubleLine Capital CEO Jeffrey Gundlach said a week after the election. “The basic fundamental underpinnings of [big tech stocks] disappeared one week ago today.”

Gundlach may be the “Bond King” – but he’s wrong here about tech stocks.

These Tech Plays Are “Ready for Prime Time” in 2017

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

Technology will be the one sector of the economy you can count on for high growth in 2017.

That may sound hard to believe, because tech slightly lagged the broader stock market through the first 11.5 months of 2016. But that was largely because life sciences fizzled.

But tech stocks are going to resume their leadership position in 2017.

Therefore, if you’re one of the millions of Americans trying to put together enough money for a stress-free retirement, technology is where your focus should be.

In this wide-randing interview with Money Morning Executive Editor William Patalon III, I lay out my “case” for tech’s resurgence, talk about the surprising benefits incoming U.S. President Donald Trump will have on American innovators, and outline a strategy for maximizing high-tech profits in 2017.

Here’s that talk…

The 3 “Singularity Era Tools” You Need in 2017

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

Last New Year’s Eve, as my wife and I put together our Annual Report, I had a revelation.

And it’s one that can help you – organizationally… and financially.

Coffee-Laptop-ChartsI realized that our Annual Report is built with open-source tech platforms.

Open-source platforms like Linux and Hadoop are free to the public to use and, for example, write code, create cloud storage, or develop Big Data applications.

And they’re becoming very popular in the Singularity Era. That’s because with these platforms tech execs save money, run their business more efficiently… and rake in the profits.

You can do the same thing.

In fact, there are three “Singularity Era Tools” that you can use every day to improve your skill set, find winning stocks, know when to cut your losses – and enjoy peace of mind.

With these three free tools, you can build your picker’s “muscles” – improving your odds of crushing the market, not just this year but for many years to come.

This Year’s Hottest Toy Is Full of AI

2 | By Michael A. Robinson

We’ve been talking a lot about artificial intelligence (AI) over the past few weeks.

About how the big brains at Google’s DeepMind AI system say they may have developed a memory system they’re calling a “differentiable neural computer” (DNC) and possibly unlocked the path to truly intelligent deep learning.

About how many of Facebook Messenger’s 1 billion users are using AI-enhanced “chatbots” for their customer-service needs – chatbots that may soon be handling bill paying, shopping, delivery, and a range of other tasks.

Maybe We Should Call These “Elaine Chao Stocks”

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

My colleagues have been busy making lists of “Donald Trump Stocks.”

I’ve done some of that myself.

But maybe we should rethink that a little.

Trump has said he plans to act more like a chairman of the board, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and the Cabinet handle the nitty-gritty of government.

So maybe we should be talking about “Elaine Chao Stocks”…

After all, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Transportation will head up much of the president-elect’s $1 trillion infrastructure improvement plan.

But more importantly to our interests here, she’ll be in charge of regulating self-driving vehicle technology.

If Chao’s history as Deputy Secretary of Transportation under George H.W. Bush and Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush repeats itself, that’s good use, because she’s known for a light regulatory hand.

To us, that means public companies in the self-driving space are likely to see a big boost in share price over the next four years.

Especially the one we’re looking at today.

You can already find its “pre”-autonomous driving technology in many of the most prestigious nameplates.

Its technology is the force behind two of the most “public” driverless car tests over the past couple of years.

And its shares are primed to soar as much as 40% in the next year alone.

Let’s take a closer look at this “Elaine Chao Stock”

Owners of This “Universal Tech Play” Are Going to Look Smart

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

There’s a tech “play” out there that gives us access to just about everything: solar panels, data storage devices, tablets, smartphones, cars and trucks, and even high-definition TV sets.

But that’s just the beginning.

It also puts us in antibiotics… water purification systems… and even NASA spacecraft.

And I bet that most of you have a piece of this “Universal Tech Play” on you as we speak.

I’m talking about silver.

Most investors think of it as a precious metal – a way to store value.

But you’re not “most investors,” and you now know that silver – this Miracle Material – has a special set of properties you won’t find in other commodities. It’s an excellent electrical and thermal conductor; it provides a durable and smooth coating for many tech components that can’t have imperfections; and it has anti-microbial properties that help medical devices stay germ-free.

Washing machines, refrigerators, air conditioners, air purifiers, and vacuum cleaners all rely on silver nanoparticles to sterilize up to 650 types of bacteria.

And right now, another hot growth area is just starting to develop for silver – nanotechnology.

Engineers have begun tinkering with this metal, looking for ways to apply wafer-thin layers of silver to a range of industrial and medical products.

While silver prices have been weighed down by strong economic figures lately, this shouldn’t deter you long term. In fact, the best time to find great bargains in silver is before another price surge.

You and Your Money Will Learn to Love These Rats

2 | By Michael A. Robinson

Rats have long been one of humanity’s worst enemies.

Flea-invested rats were carriers of the bubonic plague that killed between 75 million and 200 million Europeans in the mid-14th century.

Today, rats still carry and spread many diseases – some fatal – including hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, murine typhus, and rat-bite fever.

But I love rats – specifically, OmniRats.

ratsThese rodents – developed by biotech researchers – contain disease-fighting antibodies that are remarkably similar to the ones found in us humans. And those researchers believe they’ll be the key to dozens of successful drugs.

This is the type of biotech breakthrough that defines “How We Thrive” in the Singularity Era.

To the healthcare community, that means these rats have the potential to save millions of lives.

To the company behind these rats, they mean new clients, more revenue, and bigger profits.

To tech investors like you, that could mean 50% gains in the next 12 months alone.

And a lot more after that…

These Two Miners Are Going (Very) Deep in Search of Metals

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When it comes to mining – of both precious and strategic metals – most of the “low-hanging fruit” has been both discovered and mined out.

That’s even with the sophisticated power, equipment, and transportation technologies we discuss every week here.

And that leaves us with much lower grade deposits… at least on land.

One of the biggest tech advancements in recent years, however, has made those lower grade deposits – i.e., lower metal concentration per ton of rock – economic to mine. I’m talking about the ability to move, crush, and process massive amounts of rock from open-pit deposits.

Because so many of those metals are critical for high-tech weapons systems and all the “smart” devices we all now depend on, that’s one Singularity Era technology changing “How We Survive.”

Now, that covers land.

However, as we all learned in school, oceans cover 71% of Earth’s surface.

And most of that is very, very deep.

But we’re closer than you might think to mining for metals – many of them absolutely necessary for the tech devices that are fueling the Singularity Era – from the ocean floor.

Let me show you what that will look like (illustration below)…

Everybody’s Chatting – With the Bots That Could Make You 107%

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you have a question or issue with a recent purchase or experience – say, a broken toaster, mis-delivered pizza, or stinky hotel room – you have several options…

  • You can visit the customer service desk.
  • You can write a letter.
  • You can send an email.
  • You can call customer service.
  • You can chat with a bot.

You see, over the past year or so, thousands of “brands” – everything from soda companies to tropical resorts – have unleashed bots to handle some of their customer-service load.

With these bots, you type or say a question – and the bot responds. They work pretty well – I used one to cancel my cable service earlier this year… and didn’t realize it till later.

That may seem like a small change in the “How We Live” window of the Singularity Nexus – chatting with a bot instead of a call-center worker – but these chatbots wouldn’t exist if it weren’t a major Singularity Era technology.

Artificial intelligence…

Soon, all of our “intelligent” things will have some form of chat- or voice-bot – like Siri on your iPhone – interface.

All these chatbots need the right software and platform to be effective.

One company has already developed that software and platform.

Since this summer, this company has deployed dozens of dedicated AI servers to comb through all of the data it is getting from its chatbot platform.

And as it does so, that company’s AI system getting smarter and more precise with each passing month – and those brands are seeing success and more are signing up.

Today, I’ll show you why this company is one of the best ways to play AI and chatbots.

Not least of which because you could make profits of 107% with it between now and 2020.

You Can Triple Your Money in This “Dead” Market

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

At least that’s what every market analyst on Wall Street and cable says.

And they’ve got a point (well, three points).

First, there’s Donald Trump’s aggressive economic stimulus – including that $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Second, traders are moving their cash into a very attractive stock market. Third, the Fed will likely raise rates by the end of the year.

20161122-ChartAll three of these are bad for bonds – hence, the $1 trillion rout we saw over the past week or two.

There’s just one problem with this line of thinking. It misses the role bonds play for conservative investors, retirement funds, and other institutions who want the yield and plan to hold bonds for years.

And so, this market for fixed-income investments remains both active and huge – $40 trillion huge.

Why are we talking about the bond market? After all, we’re not going to start bypassing big tech winners in favor of bonds. Especially not now.

However, I have pinpointed a little-known tech leader that’s changing how investors are buying and selling bonds. In other words, this Singularity Play is rapidly changing “How We Live”

It passes through all five of our Tech Wealth Blueprint “filters.”

And it’s growing like crazy – so fast that I think you could hit triple-digit profits in less than three years.
