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”
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.
Here’s where to look…
