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, as the firm prepares to report earnings later this week, the stock is once again trading in the $2,000 range, double what Cramer was worrying about.

Not only that, but the “King of E-commerce” is just shy of hitting another historic moment. It’s roughly 2% from having a $1 trillion market cap.

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

The Sky’s the Limit for This Play on the $164.3 Billion Cloud Computing Sector

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of one our nation’s greatest accomplishments.

Actually, strike that… It’s one of the top achievements in the history of the human race.

When Neil Armstrong walked on the moon on July 20, 1969, the event was far more than making good on President John F. Kennedy’s moonshot goal.

It cemented our reputation as the most technologically advanced nation on earth.

All across America, folks stopped what they were doing to watch Armstrong on TV as he descended the steps of the lunar landing module.

Today, we take all the computing advances the event signified for granted. After all, our smart phones are more powerful that what NASA had to get us to moon and back.

But what most folks don’t know is the essential, behind-the-scenes role that software played in it all.

That’s why I want to briefly review what happened back then. Along the way, I’ll reveal a tech investment that will help put your portfolio in orbit…

The Five Trends That Could Help This Tech Firm Double the Market’s Returns

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

I don’t know about you, but I would love to own a piece of the Fast & Furious movie franchise.

I recently saw a preview for the ninth installment set to debut in the spring of 2020. I’m a big fan of the action-adventure genre in general, and this series of movies in particular.

It features a group of misfits who transform from street racing hot rods to become an international espionage team.

Don’t scoff, there’s big money here. To date, the nine movies have brought in more than $5 billion.

Here’s the thing. Something similar is happening in the high-margin software sector.

Technically speaking, it’s a field known as “DevOps.” The term refers to the $50 billion up for grabs by helping companies make a transition from legacy systems to cutting-edge digital tech.

Today, I’m going to show you what I call ‘Software’s Fast & Furious.’ And I’ll reveal a company that will more than double the market’s return for years to come…

How We’re Crushing the Market So Far This Year

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

These days just about every sane American is in love with Wall Street.

In fact, I haven’t seen the Street get so much positive publicity in many years.

And it’s easy to see why. All three major indexes posted massive gains for the first half of the year, tying decades-old records on the strength of June’s rally.

Consider that the S&P 500 had its best June since 1955 as the Dow logged its best performance since 1938. The tech-centric Nasdaq had its best June since 2000.

So, you might be tempted to think all you had to do was throw a dart at the stock tables to find a winner.

Truth be told, you can do far better – if you have a savvy tech expert carefully hand selecting stocks for you.

Just ask the readers of my Nova-X Report. They had four stocks that gained 100% each through the end of June.

Today, I’m going to show you how we did it, and how you can get in on the sizzling action here…

Why This Firm’s Leading the $48.8 Billion OLED TV Market

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

I guess I should have gotten the organic light emitting diodes (OLED) big screen TV after all.

See, I watched every single episode of Game Of Thrones over the last several years on a plasma HD set. And yes I know, it’s old technology by today’s standards.

Here’s the thing. Though it’s an energy hog, plasma is great at rendering black and other dark colors realistically so that you get a great image with lots of depth.

But I have to say, it literally left me in the dark for the Game of Thrones episode the “Battle of Winterfell,” most of which was shot at night. People who own OLED sets say they didn’t have nearly the problem I did.

No wonder this technology is at an inflection point and set to see sales of $48.8 billion in just four years.

Then again, you’ll find OLED tech embedded in flexible electronics, lighting, computer and TV monitors, as well as smart phones.

And today I’m going to reveal the clear leader in this breakout tech field. And I’ll show you five reasons why it will continue to double the market’s returns…

Cashing In on the Growing “E-Bay of Latin America”

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you just looked at the headlines, now would appear to be the very worst time to invest in Latin American tech.

After all, the Trump administration recently threatened to put big tariffs on goods from Mexico.

The president did that to get our neighbor to help with the crisis of undocumented workers on the porous southern border.

Under the recent agreement, Mexico will work to stem the flow of migrants leaving other Latin American nations in search of opportunities here in the U.S.

Much of what’s going on has to do with simple economics. While the region overall is in good shape, countries like Ecuador and Mexico are growing more slowly than the U.S., where GDP recently clocked in at 3.1%.

So, it may sound counterintuitive to learn that there is a Latin American e-commerce leader that is growing much faster than many tech firms based here in the U.S.

But that’s exactly what I’m going to reveal today. And I’ll show you why this hot tech leader will continue to crush the overall market…

Three VC Tools That Can Help You Find Winning Cannabis Plays

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The fast growing cannabis sector is set to become much more interesting – and lucrative.

Here’s the thing. The industry is raising money by leaps and bounds as cannabis enters the mainstream and is set to become a $150 billion global industry.

And I’m forecasting that we will see far more than the mere handful of marijuana stocks trading on major U.S. exchanges in as little as a few months’ time.

After all, pre-IPO funding is moving at a frantic pace. New data by Veridian Capital Advisors shows that private funding in just the first five months of this year has more than doubled to $1.9 billion.

And this is where my background in Silicon Valley’s venture-capital world comes in handy. It gives me a leg up in separating the winners from the losers once the stocks go public.

It’s one of the reasons why over the last several years, I have handed readers of my paid services 192 double or triple digit wins.

With that in mind, today I am going to share with you three venture capitalist (VC) tools that can help you find winning investments. Before everyone else jumps on board…

A Savvy Play on the Red-Hot Software Merger Trend

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

The software sector is about to get a whole lot more profitable.

Here’s the thing. I focus on software firms because so many of them boast very high profit margins.

And in the era of cloud computing, they can upsell products to their clients with very little extra costs – but tons of extra earnings.

But while this is a red-hot trend from which we can profit from years to come, there’s a new dynamic reshaping the whole sector.

Of course, I’m talking about a recent wave of mergers that will mean even more earnings growth for the buyers, not to mention more upside for savvy tech investors.

Consider that two big deals were recently announced just days apart.

In the first, Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq:GOOGL) said it’s buying privately held Looker for $2.6 billion. The second deal calls for Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE:CRM) to buy Tableau Software Inc. (NYSE:DATA) for $15 billion.

Today, I’m going to reveal an investment tailor made to capture the software merger trend. I’ll also give you two more market-beating ideas…

The Four Key Areas Propelling This Defense Tech Grower

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When we spoke on Dec. 26, I suggested you invest in United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

At the time, I noted the sprawling defense and industrials firm had completed a $23 billion buyout of aerospace supplier Rockwell Collins.

I went on to say that United Technologies provides access to a very lucrative field of investing – corporate spinoffs. This one gives shareholders access to three separate stocks.

But today I’m writing to let you know I now have placed the stock on hold. Rest assured this was not an easy decision.

After all, I still believe in the company’s long-term growth.

It’s the short term that is the problem, now that the firm has announced an all-stock deal to merge with Raytheon Co. (NYSE:RTN) to create a defense giant with $74 billion in sales.

So today I’m going to walk you through the reasons I have the stock on hold.

And I’ll also show you a lucrative defense pick that is putting the market to complete shame…

Why This Payments Leader Is Crushing the Market by 1,000%

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

It isn’t every day that Wall Street fails so publicly.

And no, I’m not talking about a big investment firm or commercial bank going under.

Here’s the thing. You and I have been talking about financial technology for several years now. I like to think you have a real inside edge here.

This is a field I literally got involved with in the late 1980s, and have managed to get a piece of every new wave of innovation. Then again, it’s well worth it – global payments total some $100 trillion.

So, for J.P. Morgan Chase &Co. (NYSE:JPM) to tell clients it was shutting down a new app for young people, the offering, called Finn, must have been a train wreck.

Young people are some of the most coveted consumers on Earth because you can keep them for decades. For its part, JP Morgan has built a good digital franchise.

But its future now rides heavily on traditional banking… and physical branches, which most young people hate.

That’s why today, I am going to tell you about a terrific fintech leader that is crushing the broad market by 1,000%…
