If all you’ve been hearing regarding China recently is noise about its economic slowdown, you need to find a better news source.
Investors need to stop worrying over China’s long-expected gradual slowdown. Do so and you likely will see, as my guest today does, the long-term growth ahead for key tech sectors in the world’s most populous nation.
I’m talking about the kind of growth that will fill investors’ portfolios with soaring profits for years to come.
That’s one takeaway I gleaned from an in-depth conversation I just wrapped up with one of the tech investing world’s leading China experts. And he has plenty more evidence to debunk the “Chinese slowdown” story.
Earnings season is upon us. And things aren’t looking good for International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM). And Michael just revealed a new strategy for playing Big Blue during his most recent appearance on Fox Business.
Also, with an earnings announcement just days away for AppleInc. (Nasdaq: APPL), investors are buzzing to find out if the iDeviceKing can keep the momentum from its record-shattering fourth quarter going. Michael offers up his predication for the latest quarter – and explains how Apple will become the first $1 trillion market-cap company. See it all in the video.
As much as I love to research tech investments and share my finds with you, I also get a charge out of trying out all the new gadgets that come out every year.
So you know that I hopped online and bought an Apple Watch the minute they were available for preorder.
After doing some heavy research, I know this newest iDevice is destined to be much more than just another gadget.
However, it’s not the watch itself that demonstrates why Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) may be the best tech company – and investment – on Earth. It’s the way I was able to make that purchase that proves to me the Silicon Valley legend’s long record of success is far from over.
I was headed to an appearance on CNBC. And while my driver may have been battling heavy traffic on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, I was able to peacefully use my iPad to buy the watch through the online Apple Store – with absolutely no hiccups or other snafus.
To me, this confirms what I’ve long been saying: Apple no longer sells products – the company sells an entire tech ecosystem. It sells itself.
After coming to this realization, I updated my prediction on where Apple’s stock is headed from here. It’s not too late to buy in or add to your position.
Today I want to tell you all about a highly lucrative tech sector trend that’s flying under Wall Street’s radar.
I’m talking about private equity’s plunge into Silicon Valley in order to take advantage of software’s high profit margins. Publicly held software companies are now regularly agreeing to be acquired and taken private.
In the last 18 months, four software firms have been delisted in leveraged-buyout deals worth a combined $18.3 billion. Just last week, software publisher Informatica Corp. (Nasdaq: INFA) agreed to be taken private in a deal valued at $5.3 billion – the biggest leveraged buyout in 2015 so far.
With money like that flying around, you’d think this would get more attention. But Wall Street’s ignorance fine with us.
We often find that the best way to make money is to jump on a trend before other investors wake up.
Now, I understand the temptation to start trying to guess the next software buyout candidate. When a company becomes a buyout target, its share price soars.
Before you start such guesswork, though, you should know that’s a dangerous game. Unless you have “inside information,” you might as well be flipping a coin in most cases.
However, I’ve found one simple way to hitch a ride on this trend with very little risk – and a very big upside.
Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is having its “told you so” moment. News of the Apple Watch’s success is everywhere. Despite plenty of skeptics, Apple’s latest iDevice sold out worldwide in a matter of hours, pushing preorder deliveries back to June.
During an appearance on CNBC’s Closing Bell, Michael said this is just the beginning of the Apple Watch’s success. He predicts sales of 10 million watches, worth $4 billion, in the first year. Moreover, he says the Apple Watch has the momentum to disrupt the entire consumer technology market.
Many investors are looking at the steep skid Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.(NYSE:BABA) has taken since its IPO as a major cause for concern.
But for us, this is only an opportunity.
In fact, this sell-off plays right into what I told you when I put Alibaba in “The Million Dollar Tech Portfolio.” Here’s what I said at the time: “Keep buying bits and pieces regularly – whatever you can afford at the time – whenever it sells off”
In other words, Alibaba represents an opportunity to create the kind of wealth that you’ll be able to pass along to future generations.
That makes the Chinese e-commerce giant what I call a “Piggybank Investment.” Essentially, whenever you fill up your piggybank (or a jar you store on the closet shelf) you scoop up the change and put it into Alibaba.
Today, I’ll show you how “Piggybank Investing” works.
