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 recently printed a tiny heart, 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 Cannabis Database You Need Before the Next $3.4 Billion Deal

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

I’ve been talking about legal cannabis here for years as an unstoppable industry, with my broad investment motto being: when laws pass, stocks soar.

Now it looks like the folks at BofA Securities, a division of Bank of America Corp. (NYSE:BAC), are finally catching on, as they’ve started to cover the industry in depth. Let me be the first to say: Welcome!

It also looks like in their initial coverage, they’re predicting that as the U.S. steps closer to federal legalization, we’re going to see more Canada-based firms trying to snatch up American ones, while the price is still cheaper than what it would be in a post-federal legalization world.

Of course, seeing legal cannabis as a global market is also something I’ve been talking about for a while, so I heartily agree here. And of course, the proof is in the pudding. Take Canopy Growth Corp.’s (NYSE:CGC) recent $3.4 billion agreement to purchase U.S.-based Acreage Holdings Inc. (OTC:ACRGF), which can be finalized when the U.S. federally legalizes.

The Bank of America analyst also believes the combined market share of the 14 largest Canadian cultivators could exceed that nation’s domestic market consumption needs by 2021, making international strategies all the more important for firms in this increasingly competitive space.

Again, I’ve also been focused on the international potential in this industry for years. The Bank of America analysts expect the global market will reach $166 billion, with the U.S. taking up about a third of that total, while Canada could account for about 3%. In all, cannabis is set to disrupt $2.6 trillion in revenue from existing industries like health and wellness to alcohol.

The 5 Reasons This HR Software Firm Is Set to Soar

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

My older daughter Jordan couldn’t have picked a better time to get out of college.

Actually, she already has a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Portland, which she attended as a Presidential Scholar.

But at the end of June, she will complete her master’s degree in Operations Technology Management, a field that deals heavily with logistics and supply chain management.

Having degrees in both finance and technology should give her a jump start in her job search, which she is now pursuing in earnest.

Here’s the thing. My wife and I are feeling pretty good about Jordan’s prospects. She already had a company touch bases with her last fall to see if she would be interested in joining the firm.

It’s easy to see why they wanted to get a head start.

With an unemployment rate of just 3.8%, the U.S. jobs market is the best we’ve seen since 1969.

Most investors would greet that as good news for stocks, and pretty much leave it at that.

But we’re not most investors.

We see the value in digging beneath the headlines to find great tech plays that can really line our pockets.

And today, I’m going to reveal a savvy leader in the growth field of employment tech. And I’ll show you five reasons while it will continue to crush the overall market…

What’s Behind Microsoft’s Trillion Valuation?

0 | By Strategic Tech Investor Staff

For a while during former CEO Steve Ballmer’s reign at Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT), the firm looked like it was stuck in neutral, mired in its legacy business that focused pumping out personal computers and related software. But things changed when current CEO Satya Nadella took over. Today, Microsoft breached the $1 trillion valuation mark on the back of a strong third quarter earnings report, which helped the stock jump 3%. Appearing on Fox Business’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast today, Michael explains the importance of good leadership and how it can change the course of a company – even one as big as Microsoft – and its stock potential. Watch Michael describe the key steps Nadella made to send Microsoft soaring… Click here to watch.

This Nano-Cap Mover Is Using AI to Disrupt the $2 Billion Gold Mining Sector

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

It was great to hear from my good friend, Frank Holmes, once again.

This time, he had some very exciting news about his involvement in one of the more lucrative fields in high tech today.

But first, you may recall that when we spoke last Dec. 7, I noted that I have followed Frank’s career for many years because he ranks as one world’s leading experts on anything involving metals and mining.

He serves as the CEO and chief investment officer at U.S. Global Investors (Nasdaq:GROW). It’s a boutique investment management firm, specializing in actively managed equity and bond strategies.

As impressive as his title is, it only scratches the surface of why I think he is a visionary leader.

Frank also ranks as a leading expert on high tech. And his latest venture combines those two parts of his personality with the promise of huge payouts for investors.

Indeed, Frank has just become the chairman of a fast-moving nano-cap that is using artificial intelligence (AI) to disrupt the centuries-old mining sector.

Your Burning Investment Questions, Answered

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

If the conflicting news about the markets and economy have you a bit up in the air, you are not alone.

Fact is, with the first quarter now in the rear-view mirror, the headlines are all over the place.

We’re seeing stories that suggest a possible recession, rising inflation, and slowing growth, not to mention the prospect of more trade conflicts with China.

I’ve been in the market for 40 years now, and even I sometimes find my head spinning from information overload. Fortunately, I’m a disciplined and focused investor who has learned to tune out all that noise.

This is on my mind these days because I recently returned from Money Map Press’ Black Diamond conference for our elite members.

As savvy as this group of folks are, many of them had the same types of burning questions millions of other people who are in the markets have. I was glad to answer as many as I could.

And that got me to thinking… many Strategic Tech Investor readers probably have the exact same questions.

That’s why today, I’d like to do the same with you. I’ve pulled out some of the popular questions I received at the conference, and am answering them for you now.

A Savvy Play on the $284 Billion Mobile Commerce Market

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When I appeared as a guest on the Fox Business Network the other week, I was asked my thoughts on the credit card Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL) will soon launch.

I can see why host Connell McShane was interested. After all, Apple is joining forces with two global powerhouses.

MasterCard Inc. (NYSE:MA) is a tech-savvy leader in processing credit card transactions. And Goldman Sachs ranks as one of Wall Street’s top investment banking firms.

More to the point, the new Apple card should be a hit with the key demographic group from 18 to 34. These are mobile-centric consumers who are used to shopping, investing, ordering rides and food, and sharing photos right from their smart phones.

Apple is onto something big here. I believe “Generation M” – my term for young folks who seem to have been born with cell phones in hand – will find this wildly appealing.

But as much as I like Apple’s new product, I think there is a better way to capture the full upside that mobile commerce offers.

It’s an investment that’s nearly doubled the market’s returns so far this year. And it faces plenty of upside ahead…

What’s Next for These Nova-X Winners Crushing the Market by 141%

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

You could forgive Wall Street for patting itself on the back.

After all, as I noted in our chat last Friday, the bellwether S&P 500 gained an average 13% for the quarter ended March 31. That was the best showing in a decade.

Please don’t think I’m trying to throw a wet blanket on this accomplishment. After all, millions of investors have a lot more money in their pockets these days.

But here’s the secret that neither Wall Street nor the financial media are going to tell you… you can do a whole lot better than that.

All you need is a savvy tech expert in your corner who knows the landscape cold, and has a market-crushing track record to prove it.

Just ask subscribers of my monthly newsletter, Nova-X Report. Their average profit for the quarter was 31.4%. That means, on average, they beat the market by 141%.

But several stocks did much better, with one crushing the S&P by 361%.

Today, I’m going to show you why our four best stocks absolutely annihilated the market.

And then I’ll tell you how you can get in on the action…

Why These Four Cannabis Recommendations Beat the Market by 646%

12 | By Michael A. Robinson

Delray Beach, FL – When we spoke on Tuesday, I noted that I saw no signs of recession this year.

I also made it clear that if you have the right stock picker in your corner, you can really put the market to shame.

And today, I’m going to prove that to you.

Fact is, I’m in sunny Florida today to give a presentation on investing in cannabis at Money Map Press’ Black Diamond conference.

The timing couldn’t be better.

Members of my premium trading service, Radical Technology Profits,absolutely annihilated the market in the first quarter.

During the period, the S&P 500 gained 13%, its best quarter in a decade.

But the average Rad Tech stock gained 46%, beating the market by 253%.

Our cannabis picks did even better. The top four gained an average profit of 97%. That means we trounced the market’s benchmark index by 646%.

One recommendation beat the market by 1,215%.

So, today I’m going to show you why our top four cannabis picks made so much money for my members…

And what that could mean for you

5 Investor Personality Traits You Need to Know Before Diving In

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

When we spoke on New Year’s Day, I told you not to worry about a recession this year.

I’m bringing it up again three months later for a very good reason. Once again, the so-called “experts” in the media and Wall Street are warning that the economy is about to hit the skids.

Let me be clear. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Yes, growth is slowing. Fourth quarter GDP was recently revised down to 2.2% from an estimate of 2.6%. But I see no economic data to suggest the economy is about to go backwards.

We still have one of the best job markets of the past 40 years. And while housing and auto sales have slowed, they remain well above recession levels.

Here’s the thing. While I stand by my optimistic forecast for tech stocks in 2019, all this talk about the “R” word reminds me that it may be the perfect time for you to take my “investor personality test.”

This is a process by which you figure out how you really feel about stocks, the market and the economy.

The bigger idea being that if you really want to be fully prepared for both good and bad times, start by first understanding what makes you tick as an investor.

Because over the long haul, that can save you lots of heartache – and a lot of cold, hard cash….
