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.
Take a look…
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…
Let me show you why…
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…

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…
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….
