We’ve talked often here about how so-called “Miracle Materials” are literally changing our lives.
Well, earlier this year, one of those Miracle Materials made my vacation possible.
And just like it does every year, it saved my health – at least until I hit the slopes again.
Let me tell you my story.
And then I’m going to tell you about a Miracle Material play that’s highly speculative – but offers a lot of potential upside.
And it trades at only $7 a share.
The “Magic” Tape That Makes Life Worth Living
As we try to do every year, we traveled to a Vail, Colo., ski-resort lodge.
And as usual, my body wasn’t fully cooperative. Over the past few years, my knees, lower back, and neck have been on the cranky, and they can’t always hold up to the beating that comes with a high-speed run down the white-powdery run.
But I still ski every year, thanks to a discovery my daughter, then 14, made about four years ago. A “Miracle Materials” discovery, no less…
She told me about a product that she found and used at the time to offset her occasional volleyball ailments.
It’s called KT Tape, and it is composed of synthetic microfibers that provide needed support to painful parts of the body – and speed up heeling as a result.
Granted, by the time I’m done taping up, I look a little like something from The Mummy.
But every time I tape up, it’s totally worth the effort.
Every time we head to Vail or some other slopes, I’m able to ski as much as I want.
And every time I come back home, I feel rejuvenated – revved up to look for ways to help you make money.
Of course, there’s more to Miracle Materials than getting help with nagging injuries.
It’s not often that you get a chance to get in on the “ground floor” of an entire new business.
But that’s just what you have here.
You see, without Miracle Materials – and the science that backs them – we simply wouldn’t have some of the unique high-tech products we take for granted: smartphones, electric cars, and new drug therapies… just to name a few.
Today, let’s about three of the Miracle Materials sectors that I’m targeting … and to tell you about a super-low-priced stock with 4,000% profit potential.
So let’s get down to it…
Miracle Material No. 1: Synthetic DNA
To underscore their importance, materials scientists are now early participants very early in the product-discovery phase of the global-tech ecosystem.
Advanced technologies, you see, now require breakthroughs in a wide range of materials – from polymers to metals to medical molecules.
Nowhere is this need more obvious than with the development of synthetic DNA vaccines.
Synthetic DNA vaccines stem from fragments of manufactured DNA – and the idea is to “program” them to fight the flu or other diseases.
This disruptive approach will turn the $34.3 billion vaccine market inside out. Besides the flu, firms in this space are working on synthetic vaccines for leukemia, HIV, malaria, hepatitis and cancer.
In a 2016 preclinical study conducted by the Wistar Institute, a synthetic DNA vaccine approach has been able to successfully protect against the mosquito-borne Zika virus in-vivo. And last year, a Scripps Research Institute team developed a living organism that incorporates both natural and artificial DNA – and is capable of creating entirely new, synthetic proteins.
But still, no firm has a synthetic DNA vaccine product on the market for human use. But trust me, those products are coming. Several are in clinical trials right now – just awaiting U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
This Miracle Materials field is extremely important for a couple of reasons.
- During the past several years, we’ve seen new flu strains develop. And developing vaccines to combat them in a timely manner – using longstanding organic strategies – just takes too long.
- If there’s a big outbreak, or a flu virus mutates, the use of 60-year-old organic strategies will keep us from developing needed vaccines in a timely enough manner, or in big enough quantities. In short, if there’s a big outbreak, we’d never be able to react in time.
But once synthetic DNA vaccine technology receives FDA approval, scientists will be able to engineer and scale up for full production in a matter of a few weeks.
And that, I can tell you, is the true definition of a Miracle Material.
Miracle Material No. 2: Engineered Carbon
This substance ranks as the thinnest material ever created. If you stacked 3 million sheets of this stuff on top of one another, the entire array would be a single millimeter in height.
Even so, this two-dimensional structure made from carbon atoms is incredibly strong. It would take an elephant balanced on a pencil to break through a sheet as thin as Saran Wrap.
And while scientists refer to this as “engineered carbon,” the mainstream news media and most investors know this superstrong substance by a different name.
They call it graphene.
The intense interest is understandable: This form of engineered carbon boasts seemingly endless uses – sensors, semiconductors, batteries, energy generation, medicine, transportation… it’s limited only by our imaginations.
I firmly believe that graphene will revolutionize the economy. But I also believe that its full, commercial benefits won’t be realized for several years.
For a second form of engineered carbon – one that seems less sexy, but is just as robust – the time is now. This form is graphite – a close cousin of graphene.
It’s a critical ingredient for lithium-ion batteries, which require about 10 times as much graphite as lithium to operate. And lithium-ion batteries are the preferred energy source for a wide range of consumer electronics, including smartphones and electric vehicles.
Electric-vehicle production will remain a major driver for this industry because the batteries are so much bigger than those you find inside smartphones or tablets.
Analysts and suppliers are rapidly upping their forecasts for electric vehicle sales. For example, Valeo SA, which makes auto tech products like sensors, software, and engine parts, expects at least 10% of all vehicles sold by 2025 to be powered by a battery. Last year’s internal forecast at Valeo put that number at 5% to 6%.
And that brings us to our third, and last, version of Miracle Materials – one that I was perhaps the first analyst to recommend to investors.
Miracle Materials No. 3: Rare Earths
Rare-earth materials is a field I first began covering back in the 1980s as part of my analysis of Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars program.
Rare earths are at the heart of many defense applications, including laser-guided weapons, jet-engine parts, and night-vision goggles.
There’s also a huge need for rare earths in many consumer applications. We’re talking everything from smartphones and tablets to digital cameras and fiber optics to medical scanners and light-emitting diode (LED) displays.
That’s why I’ve chosen a specific rare metal – and the company with an iron grip on its supply – as our Miracle Materials profit play.
Miracle in the Making
You see, there’s a shape-shifting phenomenon that’s storming Silicon Valley.
Not only can this smart metal melt in the palm of your hand… but seconds later, it can morph into a completely different form that withstands heat up to 4,532°F.
This shape-shifting metal has already helped win a Nobel Prize.
Every major tech player on the planet is already rushing to harness its prowess.
You see, this metal promises to unseat silicon from its lofty perch as the technology sector’s metal of choice because it delivers higher performance, less power consumption, and lower cost.
Simply put, this metal is simply much more efficient than silicon.
That makes semiconductor chips based on this metal perfect for defense and military technology… LIDAR… solar power… space exploration… LED displays… and much, much more.
Finally, at the center of the frenzy, holding 42 critical patents, sits a tiny company on the brink of a 40,000% sales-surge.
You can get in today for a mere $7 a share.
