It was a terrible first quarter.
Amid trade-war fears and other scares, we saw a 10% correction.
While it hasn’t been all blue skies since then – those trade-war fears are still with us, after all – the overall stock market fared pretty well in the April-to-June period. The S&P 500 rose a respectable 2.9% and is on pace to finish the year in the green.
While it’s good to see the market bouncing back, let’s take a moment to consider what’s been behind the turnaround.
I love to remind investors that the Road to Wealth Is Paved by Tech – in fact, that’s our mantra around here.
In other words, our job is to crush the market by investing in tech stocks. And as you know – and as my paid-up members know – you can get accomplish that goal a lot faster with the right guide in your corner.
The work we do’s a tall order, but we’re making good on our goal to help you realize your investing potential. And, once again, we have the empirical data to back it all up.
Fact is, members of my Nova-X Report doubled the market’s returns by gaining an average 6.0%.
And many picks did a lot better than that, beating the market by as much as 16-fold.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at our four biggest winners in the period…
Tech Is Driving the Surge
Now then, when we spoke back on April 27, I noted the market had gotten choppy on fears of a possible trade war with China.
In that respect, not much has changed since then – the news is filled with headlines of a possible showdown China. So trading remains choppy.
But remember, the overall the economy is doing great. The U.S. Labor Department said on July 5 that jobless claims are the lowest we’ve seen in 45 years.
Much of that has to do with the fact that high tech is driving the economy forward in a way we’ve never really seen before.
Remember, every business today is a tech business because virtually every business needs access to the cloud, payments technology, e-commerce, and more.
And if you really want to take maximum advantage of these red-hot trends, you need a savvy investing guide in your corner.
Someone, to boast just a little, like me.
With that in mind, take a look at how my paid-up Nova-X members did with our four biggest gainers in the second quarter.
Then I’ll show you how you can join ’em for just $3.33 a month…
Nova-X Market Crusher No. 1: Apps Maker Surges 46.7%
Heading up the leaderboard is a provider of embedded communications widgets that work inside of websites. Not only did this firm hand Nova-X members a stunning 56.6% gain in the first quarter, but we bagged another 46.7% gain in the second quarter.
None of this would have been possible had we not deployed our Cowboy Split trading system. When shares hit a rough patch in early February, we bought a second tranche of shares.
That was impeccable timing. Shares bottomed out just two days later, on Feb. 8, and they have been soaring ever since.
When the year began, investors were concerned that this firm’s growth was about to slow. But we had no such concerns and knew it was racking up hundreds of new clients per quarter.
Now, the Wall Street crowd has woken up, with consensus sales growth forecasts of 36% for this year.
We already took a free trade with this stock after it became a 100% gainer, meaning our remaining stake is pure profit.
Nova-X Market Crusher No. 2: Medtech Leader Adds 19.5%
A set of smart acquisitions has helped push shares of our top medtech play at Nova-X up 19.5% in the second quarter.
That continues a quarterly winning streak that has been in place ever since we bought shares in summer 2017.
This firm builds the precision lasers and photonics technology that underpin vision and precision motion systems. Those systems, in turn, help clients in healthcare and manufacturing stay on the leading edge.
And these are boom times for the firm. Its CEO recently told investors, “We are experiencing broad-based strength within a majority of our end markets, including life science, minimally invasive surgery, and advanced industrial.”
Those growth drivers should help sales increase at least 15% this year.
Wall Street is having a hard time keeping up with the management team’s steady boosts to guidance.
In the four quarters we’ve owned this stock, profits have come in 20% ahead of forecasts, on average. Profits this year are now on pace to rise 25%.
Nova-X Market Crusher No. 3: Energy Tech Firm Gains 17.6%
The energy sector tends to sharply boost spending when times are good. And with crude oil prices holding above $70 per barrel, these are surely good times.
That’s providing a clear lift to our energy sector-focused software firm. This company’s clients are spending more on plant optimization software, which helped our Nova-X recommendation to recently deliver a fourth straight double-digit earnings beat.
The firm’s value to clients is clear. It helps oil companies cut costs and time – and boost margins.
When I recommended shares of this firm around 18 months ago, I predicted we’d secure 35% gains in 30 months. My forecast was way off.
We’re already up nearly 60% in just 18 months.
Nova-X Market Crusher No. 4: E-Commerce Enabler Rallies 17.1%
Solid gains, quarter after quarter, can compound into truly meaningful gains.
Take the case of our e-commerce tools provider, which helps clients build a powerful presence on the Amazon.com platform.
This firm’s stock handed us a 33% gain in the eight months we owned shares in 2017. That was followed up by a 23% first-quarter gain, and another 17.1% gain this past quarter.
Those gains were so impressive that we were able to secure a free trade with this firm in mid-June, after our gains hit the century mark. Our remaining stake is pure upside (we’re playing with the house’s money)…
With half a year behind us, our e-commerce enabler now appears on pace to boost sales more than 50% this year, and another 40% next year. And with the ongoing shift toward e-commerce set to play out over many years to come, there’s no reason to suspect that growth will slow anytime soon.
With these four stocks as classic case studies, you can see why my Nova-X members did so well in a very challenging market.
As these results show, it literally pays to invest in tech and take the long view, with a steady hand guiding the way.
