Michael appeared on Fox Business on Tuesday to weigh in on the dropping stock prices of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: APPL), Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), and most importantly, McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE: MCD). With the rise of other fast food conglomerates taking control of the market, does McDonald’s have the heft to take the heat?

You’ve seen the headlines – and if you shopped online last weekend, you were a part of the story.
Storefront retail traffic was down up to 11% on Black Friday, but online shopping was up more than 17%. In other words, we’ve changed the way we’ve shopped.
Thanksgiving Day was Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT)’s best online day ever, with sales rising 40% over the previous year. And so many smartphone-wielding customers headed to Best Buy Co. Inc. (NYSE: BBY) that its website suffered outages all through the long holiday weekend.
It makes you wish you had bought into e-commerce stocks a decade ago, when online shopping was really taking off in the United States.
But there’s a rare second chance out there to get in on the ground floor of another unstoppable e-commerce trend. It’s already making gains of 45% a year – the kind that can make you truly rich.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index plummeted 6% in 30 minutes Monday morning – so we knew right away it was going to be a rocky day. Michael appeared on Fox Business today to tackle how you should be handling gold, silver, oil and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) through this current sell-off and into the New Year.
After spending 30-plus years around Silicon Valley, I could tell you a few dirty little secrets.
And one of the biggest is that exciting technological breakthroughs occur all the time. Just subscribe to any given tech e-letter, and you’ll find a gusher of brilliant ideas in your inbox every morning.
What it takes to succeed – to turn those innovations into profitable products or services – is great leadership. And as investors, if we want to score the kind life-changing profits the tech sector can provide, we have to find Silicon Valley’s truly excellent leaders.
But great leaders don’t always come from where you’d expect – Harvard Business School, Stanford‘s Graduate School of Business or even a thorough study of Stephen R. Covey and Dale Carnegie.
For all the attention that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) gets, many forget that one of its core strengths is its retailing operation.
“They take retail operations very seriously,” Michael said Wednesday on Fox Business. “It’s a big part of their operations, their sales success.”
To find out how Michael thinks tech investors should play Apple now, watch the video below.
Today I want to reintroduce you to a stock that Wall Street has been pricing as though it were dead money.
This biotech company recently filed a stellar earnings report. But those earnings were slightly off analyst expectations, and the share price dipped – making this is yet another stock that sells off after a slight miss, a dispiriting trend.
But that’s okay. Wall Street’s ignorance gives us an entry point the likes of which we probably won’t see again for years.
Now I’m going to show you how Wall Street got it wrong – and why today’s recommendation is actually a huge profit opportunity. And we’re going to pick the stock up using a strategy perfect for today’s market conditions.
Back in 1970, my young mind was both unlocked and unsettled by the book Future Shock.
In the best-seller, futurist Alvin Toffler took a hard look at the world, was disturbed by what he observed, and then warned of the perils of “information overload.” He foretold a future where people were mentally frozen because of the endless streams of data they were receiving.
However, I don’t think we’re as isolated and unable to act as Toffler predicted. In many ways, the Internet has made us less isolated – and with a few simple tools I’ve put together, you can cut through the noise and find ways to build your wealth.
Today I want to show you my most reliable “Overload Busters” – three signals that cut through the floods of data every time. These “Busters” have long proven to be accurate barometers of the markets – and surefire ways to instigate profits.
While the markets are reaching nearly daily record heights as we go into the holiday season, it’s been a heck of a rough ride getting here.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index has gained an impressive 11.5% in 2014. However, from Sept. 18 to Oct. 15, the bellwether index fell some 7.4%. Then, over the month ended Nov. 14, the S&P 500 surged 9.5%.
Plus, S&P had three other 4%+ sell-offs before that this year.
It’s been downright dizzying. But for us, a ruckus of a market like this can be a fantastic opportunity.
Today, I want to show you my secret “bronco busting” strategy that’s perfect for rough rides such as this. It’s just the tool that tech investors who are trying to make a killing in Silicon Valley need to turn a skittish market to their advantage – and send their profits soaring.
One of my favorite truisms of investing is that you’ll make the most money on the biggest innovations.
That sounds obvious. However, it also calls to mind Rule No. 2 in my five-part Tech Wealth Secrets system – “Separate the signals from the noise.”
The noisemakers in the mainstream tech media are obsessed with the latest mobile gadgets and the smallest memory storage devices. However, the biggest innovations – our “signals” -are happening in software.
And software remains among the most profitable industries anywhere – with gross margins exceeding 70%.
So today I’m going to show you how software has quietly become so visionary – and so lucrative.
Michael Robinson joined Fox Business’ Stuart Varney on Tuesday to give viewers a preview of the 2015 tech market. Michael makes the bullish case for Gilead Sciences (Nasdaq: GILD). With more than 170 million people worldwide affected by hepatitis C, Gilead’s two “blockbuster” treatments promise to carry their revenues way beyond the current $8 billion level.
And Michael has some good things to say about SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK). This Silicon Valley flash memory leader – and major Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) supplier – is about to reap the fruits of a powerful market catalyst. It’s a new storage device that’s certain to capture the youth market in 2015.
