The Dow Jones Industrial Average may have plunged nearly 2% this week, but Michael still sees plenty of tech action in the markets. In fact, he told Fox Business viewers earlier this week that the recent disappointing earnings from Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) is an opportunity to “Buy,” not a reason to flee. And that’s not the only winner Michael sees right now. To see his rundown on that stock – along with one to avoid – just check out his appearance below.

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) just reported the biggest quarterly profit ever for a public company – $18 billion in net income over the last three months of 2014. And CEO Tim Cook says his company made a “staggering” number of iPhone sales during that time – 74.5 million.
And already a lot of folks in the media and on Wall Street are asking this question: What’s next?
For once, that’s exactly the right question to ask.
After all, stocks are “discounting” mechanisms, meaning their valuations are based on expectations of the future.
But instead of looking at the picture clearly, the media is making Apple shareholders worry that smartphones have reached their peak – and Wall Street seems to think the company has become too dependent on iPhone sales.
First of all, neither of those worries is based in fact. Second, beyond iPhones, Apple has in place several catalysts for continued strong growth.
And so, Apple stock is still on target to make my prediction come true – $1,000 per share ($142.85, post-split) by Labor Day 2016.
Today, I’m going to show you the three reasons why Apple is still on target.
Today is a good day to remind ourselves that we should always be in the stock market.
The markets remain the single best place to tap into the ongoing innovations in technology and the relentless growth that they create. And there are strategies we have at our disposal that we can use to safely capture some of that growth – and the wealth we all desire.
Today we’re going to head to the heart of the global auto industry to use Rule No. 3 – “Ride the unstoppable trends.” While we’re staying in the United States on this trip, we’re not traveling to Detroit.
Think back to last fall.
No other business story took up more column inches and more TV time than the Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) initial public offering (IPO).
The Alibaba IPO remained the world’s top business story for months on end because of the immense amount of wealth it drew in and then created.
This was an early-stages opportunity in a tremendously high-growth business – e-commerce – in China, the world’s fastest-growing large economy.
Now, imagine that you had the chance to invest in Alibaba before that IPO.
Today, I’m bringing you just that sort of opportunity.
With China slowing down, India and its 1.25 billion people are poised to become the world’s fastest-growing big economy.
And that’s why I was thrilled to discover the “secret” play that insiders are using to invest in the “Alibaba of India” years before its IPO.
Technology companies are a lot like major-league sports stars in that they often post their best results early in their careers.
Athletes’ bodies wear out, and they can compete at the highest levels for only so many years.
With high-tech corporations, however, the challenge isn’t age or health. It’s that there’s always a group of young start-ups with hot innovations breathing down the Old Guard’s necks.
There are chances for late-career renaissances. Think of pitching ace Roger Clemens – who left the Boston Red Sox after 192 wins and 13 seasons in 1996, looking pretty rusty. Of course, Clemens found something that allowed him to go on and pitch for another 11 years – and win another 162 games.
What aging tech leaders need for their late-career renaissance is the business equivalent of a performance-enhancing drug – except legal.
I’ve uncovered four aging Silicon Valley legends that have found just that in a certain fast-moving tech sector.
And one of them, just like Clemens did, has rediscovered its ace-like prowess – and is making investors hefty gains in the process.
This year, 80% of the chips for new PCs will be produced in Silicon Valley… Taiwan… China‘s Shenzhen Province… South Korea…
Wrong on all counts.
More and more of today’s chipmakers locating their manufacturing facilities a bit off the beaten path these days – in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies… and a nation that some of you may find controversial.
But my job is to take you wherever the biggest innovations are being made so that we can find the biggest opportunities. So, today I’m going to show you exactly where so many of world’s top tech companies are headed.
Can Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)’s hardware stand up to Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL)’s reach? Michael discussed just that with Stuart Varney on Fox Business this week. Michael also makes the case for SanDisk Corp. (Nasdaq: SNDK) after the stock plunged precariously on Monday.
In 2014, we discussed well over 100 ways to make huge gains from technology stocks.
And I’m looking forward to sharing many more tech investing ideas with you in 2015.
Before we get started on that, I want to address the questions and comments you’ve had about our twice-weekly chats.
I want you to know as much as you possible about investing in technology – the single best wealth engine ever – so you can navigate today’s choppy markets in a way that creates life-changing gains
LAS VEGAS – If we had to describe all of the amazing new products and technologies we’ve seen at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week, we’d need 10 of these columns.
Amid all the hype this year, the hugest buzz was about ultra-high-definition TV (UHDTV).
It was all about ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV) at CES 2015.
Samsung‘s 28,000-square-foot pavilion was the largest in Las Vegas this year.
The focus on televisions isn’t surprising for a consumer electronics-focused trade show filled with buyers from major online and big-box retailers. But there’s also a reason for tech investors like you folks to pay attention as well.
According to the Consumer Electronics Association trade group, Americans will be buying 1.43 million UHDTV sets, or roughly 5% of televisions sold nationally, in 2016. That’s a 60-fold increase from 2013, when UHDTVs debuted.
And, of course, there are ways for all of us to profit on all those UHDTVs our fellow Americans will be buying.
Despite being a record-setting sales year for Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), the stock fell nearly 22% in 2014. Michael talked to Stuart Varney on Fox Business on Tuesday about how exactly you should be handling this blue-chip stock.
