Why Amazon Could Hit $3,000 Per Share

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

By now, I think it’s safe to say that Jim Cramer was dead wrong.

And I was right on the money.

Here’s the thing. I remember very clearly the day that Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) crossed the $1,000 mark on May 31, 2017.

Cramer, the host of CNBC’s Mad Money looked at the price and slammed it. He said that “psychologically” $1,000 is a lot to pay for a stock he felt was getting ahead of itself.

As the saying goes, that was then and this is now.

No doubt, the tech leader hit a rough patch late last year with the rest of the market. And it has come under fire recently as part of the Big Tech backlash.

Yet, below-expected earnings reports for Q2 and Q3 of this year could only pull Amazon down into the $1,700 range, still far above what Cramer was worrying about.

Not only that, but the “King of E-commerce” is well positioned for another historic moment. It’s roughly 15% away from having a $1 trillion market cap, and most of that would just be regaining lost ground

And today, you’ll see why I still firmly believe the stock will hit at least $3,000 a share – and likely much, much more than that…

Know Thyself: Knowing Your “Investor Personality” Could Be the Key to Your Fortune

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

In Plato’s Republic, protagonist Socrates takes the Delphic aphorism “Know Thyself” as his personal motto.

It’s a great motto … especially for investors.

As a market veteran of many years, I can tell you that this is one of the biggest weaknesses most investors have.

They don’t know themselves …

I watch as folks take losses and miss out on profits – mistakes they could have easily avoided if they’d only taken the time to know their investing personalities just a little bit better.

So today I want to demonstrate how to transform yourself into the “Socrates of High-Tech Investing.”

It’s easier than you’d think

How You Could Get a Piece of One Cloud Firm’s $500 Million Deal

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

My wife and I recently traveled nearly 20 hours to return from a trip to Barcelona only to get out of bed the next morning and have no electricity.

Here’s the thing, when you don’t have power, you don’t have comms. We had no Wifi since the provider didn’t have enough back up power in place.

Even more frustrating was that our smart phones were all but useless. Forget surfing the Web to get information about PG&E Corp. (PCG) and its planned shutoffs.

On top of all that, we had no real cell service, meaning we couldn’t make calls from our home. Our neighbors said that their land lines were also useless.

That’s when it really drove home something that we all take for granted -modern communications like text messages, email and phones are totally integral to our lives.

They’re so important that the goal of unifying all these services recently led to a $500 million deal for a cloud-based communications firm.

Today, I’m going to reveal the winner of this new pact and show you why it will more than triple the market’s returns

0 | By Strategic Tech Investor Staff

Roku Inc. (ROKU) has been having some good days in early November, and it’s perfectly positioned to capitalize on the rise of streaming; but its future is not necessarily certain. The streaming platform has had to deal with some price instability after its quick rise, and now the question of whether its freemium pricing model can meet consumer demand is surfacing. Meanwhile, the digital streaming market is full of tough competitors – and there are two more prominent than ever, ready to hash it out. This is one battle you need to watch closely, as the winner could spell out huge profits for whomever latches on now. Click here to watch.

What My Trip to Spain Means for Cannabis Investors

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

BARCELONA, Spain – Most folks visiting this historic port city on the Balearic sea would focus on seeing tourist-facing sites like the huge and elaborate Sagrada Familia church or the Gothic district.

But I made finding a cannabis club a very high priority.

And this was for two reasons:

  1. Even though I use edibles to help me sleep at night, my wife and I dared not go through customs with contraband of any kind.
  2. Having talked to many of you members about global cannabis sales in the years ahead, I wanted to see firsthand how the sector is doing in Europe.

I’m happy to report that cannabis use and sales are on the upswing in this port city and that Europe is set to help drive a global market forecast to hit $15 billion this year.

Today, I’m going to reveal to you what my visit to just such a club reveals about the opportunities available in this high-octane sector

You Can Double Your Money Fighting the $1.1 Trillion Disease Killing America

I recently got the kind of news that no child wants to hear about an aging parent.

Here’s the thing, I count my blessings that my dad lived so long. After all, he’s a retired Marine Corps captain who saw three tours of combat, one in Korea and two in Vietnam.

Honestly he’s lucky he lived as long as he did. But that still doesn’t make the aging process any easier, at least not on the body.

He recently had a second knee replacement that didn’t go as well as planned. He also has swelling of the feet. His mobility is not all that great, and he can’t drive right now.

At 86, he recently learned he has congestive heart failure. That’s a condition in which the heart doesn’t pump as strongly as it should, leading to a buildup of fluids.

As such, my dad is part of a huge trend in America. Fact is, according to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is set to have an economic impact of $1.1 trillion by 2035.

And today, I want to reveal a life sciences firm that is bringing badly needed relief to millions of heart patients, and show you five reasons why it’s set to double in as little as 3.5 years

The Answer to Big Pharma’s Biggest Problem Could Double Your Money in just Three Years

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

You could forgive drug and biotech executives for having a bad case of target fixation.

After all, they do work in a field that is filled with time-consuming and expensive headaches.

Consider that the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the world’s largest biotech trade organization, looked at 7,400 drug programs by 1,103 companies. They were investigating drug-approval rates.

The news was not good -just 9.6% of drugs scientists discover ever get approved for sale. That’s a one-in-ten shot.

With such daunting data, it’s no wonder that, even in a field already worth $1.2 trillion in global sales, industry leaders are on the lookout for ways to lower the cost of discovery and shorten time to market.

And with that goal in mind, I’ve uncovered a high-octane, large-cap firm that has become an essential ingredient in the drug sector’s success.

It’s a cloud-based leader in pharmaceutical efficiency that has a history of crushing the market by no small measure. It’s been doubling its earnings, on average, every 18 months

My Top Three Recommendations for New Investors

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

My “dad vibe” must be working overtime these days.

And that’s got me thinking maybe my “chance” conversations with a number of young adults lately is a sign of the times.

Let me explain.

As I’ve been going about my routines in the past, I’ve run into a lot of young people who want to get started in investing, but have no clue how to do so.

I’m talking about folks my daughters’ age who are earning some income and want to invest, but just don’t know where to start.

For instance, once, while skiing at the Kirkwood Mountain Resort near Lake Tahoe, I chatted with three young adults who jumped at the chance to get my advice about investing.

I guess that’s where the dad vibe comes into play…. I told them about a surefire way to make the market work for them as though I were talking to my own daughters.

And it just so happens that this investment advice is good for newcomers and old, particularly investors who’ve been reluctant to jump in when market conditions are so volatile.

That’s why today, I’m going to show you not just the one “starter” investment vehicle I suggest for young adults that can set you on the right track…

But I’m going to recommend three other tech-centric ways to jump start your portfolio right now…

The “Printing” Tech Tackling Heart Disease’s $400 Billion in Annual Costs

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

There’s a new cutting-edge tech breakthrough that could save the lives of six million Americans in a decade.

Yes, it is potentially a very powerful weapon in the fight against heart disease, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says causes one in four deaths each year.

Ironically, the technology is in a sector deeply out of favor with Wall Street.

But that’s just fine with us. At Strategic Tech Investor, we know the huge profit potential in bucking the Street’s herd mentality.

And you couldn’t pick a more exciting field than 3D-printed human organs.

Here’s the thing. Scientists in Israel printed a tiny heart in April, complete with blood vessels, using a patient’s cells.

Even better, they pulled off this amazing achievement in just three hours.

That’s why today, I’m going to show you what I believe is the best market-crushing play on the future of 3D printing tech used to save lives…

The Backend Play that Could Give You Amazon’s Growth… at an 80% “Discount”

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

My daughters, ages 20 and 23, are a little bit bummed right now.

See, one of their favorite retail stores has just filed for bankruptcy protection. As a result, Forever 21 intends to close 178 stores in the U.S. and another 172 around the world.

Kendall and Jordan have been going to one of the local stores for many years. They like the wide selection of trendy clothes, shoes, and accessories at discount prices.

Here’s the thing: their other favorite place to shop continues to put lagging retailers under pressure to perform in the fast moving online world.

Growing up in a tech-centric home, both my daughters take shopping at Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) as a given. Much to their dad’s chagrin, they do it all the time – and I do mean all the time.

But what most people miss here is that Amazon now relies on thousands of other companies to sell through the firm’s unbeatable storefront.

According to Statista, Amazon’s websites receive 209.7 million unique visitors every month from the U.S. alone, with most of the purchases they make coming from third-party sellers.

With that in mind, I want to show you why what I call Amazon’s “Hidden Supercharger” is set to crush the market
