The easiest class I took in college more than 40 years ago is turning out to be very valuable these days.
It was a sociology course on aging that I rarely attended. But I did read the textbook carefully,
And I’m glad I did. It helped prepare for recent events involving my in-laws and my dad.
We recently had to move my aging in-laws into an assisted living facility. Meanwhile my dad, age 87, wants to remain at home but needs regular care.
I’m bringing this all up because it’s part of a huge national trend. By 2030, 20% of the population will be seniors, nearly double the figure in 2009.
By 2024, this demographic will push the home healthcare market to $225 billion, up 125% from the 2016 level.
… And today, I’m going to reveal a leader in this field whose stock could double in less than two years
Every time I walk out of my apartment and walk past the mountain of packages left for residents in my building, I’m reminded of
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: ). AMZN
By now, everyone in the United States has heard of it. You see its packages and boxes in the recycling and delivery trucks with the large, unmistakable Amazon logo. It even has its own fleet of planes that you might see at the airport. Not just an e-commerce company, it also has a music service, the top video game streaming service, payments platform, an over-the-top entertainment platform, and one of the largest web services in the United States. This is how you create a trillion-dollar company.
According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, it has 112 million members in its Prime loyalty program as of December 2019. That is 34% of the U.S. population, and given that people sign up as families, eMarketer takes it one step further and suggests that 82% of households have a Prime account.
. That is one truly amazing statistic
Back in mid-March, I wrote a two-part series on the hunt for a COVID-19 vaccine.
You can read the first part of that series
and the second part here . right here
At the time, I noted there were roughly a dozen or so companies involved racing to find a way to stop the deadly disease.
And while that sounded like a lot of scientific effort at the time, it turns out my analysis was too conservative.
We now have well over 100 research teams around the world scrambling for a vaccine or a drug that treats the disease.
Of those, at least two dozen hail from biotech or drug firms, many of them publicly traded.
I don’t know about you but I would love to get in on all that action with a great tech-centric firm that has superior earnings and price appreciation ahead.
And that is just what I’m going to reveal today. Doubling its earnings every 18 months, this “Biotech Goldmine” is set to crush the overall market…
The third episode of the Digitization-X Podcast
Imagine a 4-minute commute from Washington, DC to New York, a 230-mile journey.
Or, how about an hour’s journey between New York City and Zurich, Switzerland?
That’s how long it would take if you could travel at Mach 5, which is about 3,836 mph.
And this isn’t science-fiction; it’s science now!
It’s what has become known as hypersonic speed. And while it may not be available to commuters or vacationers – yet – it’s a top priority of US, Chinese, and Russian defense companies.
Make no mistake. Hypersonic technology is vital for America’s security. It also means big bucks for savvy tech investors.
In fact, I have identified a leader in this hot new field that is selling at a roughly 35% discount from the S&P 500.
Even better, it has a track record of
beating that benchmark by 160%.
… Let me show you why there is still so much upside ahead
Welcome to the latest episode of the
Digitization-X (DX) podcast, where host Alex Kagin gives you a front row seat to the newest and most exciting companies and themes in tech investing.
Two industry giants wanted to hog the headlines this week as
Amazon shelled out $1.2 billion for autonomous vehicle startup Zook, and Microsoft announced immediate closures of all its consumer stores.
But as you’ll found out in this latest DX episode, there was plenty more to discuss.
My wife and I have become obsessed with a reality TV show that is part entertainment and part fright show.
Let me explain.
I haven’t watched a reality show in maybe a decade and had no intention of ever doing so again.
But when Tracy recently suggested we try an episode of
Botched, I decided to give it a try. I have to say that I was quickly hooked.
In each episode, patients seek help from two renowned doctors to correct cosmetic surgeries that went awry – hence the name
As a veteran tech investor, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was a better process for many of those patients to avoid ending up on the show in the first place.
Since the cosmetic surgery market is on its way to being worth some $43.9 billion, you can bet I was determined to find out.
… So, I’m glad to reveal a medical tech leader in the field that could triple in value from here
July 4 is one of my favorite holidays, and living in D.C., the excitement is intensified as a huge parade marches through the city and the night concludes at the National Mall with fireworks.
But this year will be very different.
Fireworks in the nation’s capital will take place in some form with many people watching from home and the National Independence Day Parade has been cancelled. The rest of the country is also still affected by COVID-19.
Microsoft Corp. ( MSFT ) is set to release an upgrade to its signature operating system with a very unique hook.
In as little as three months from now, Mr. Softy goes to market with Windows 10X.
Microsoft has designed the upgrade specifically to address the coming era of foldable-screen PCs and dual-screen laptops.
Here’s the thing; I have recommended Microsoft several times in recent years and continue to do so.
But today, I want to talk with you about the flip side of that investing coin – the 10X upgrade cycle.
Once 10X hits the market around the fall of this year, other software and apps makers will have to tweak their packages to fit the new format.
And that means there is a much broader play that takes advantage of the 10X ecosystem and other software trends.
And did I mention, it’s beating the market by 52.6%?
One of the great things about having tech-savvy children who are young adults is that it keeps me sharp regarding key trends.
It can really come in handy when scanning for stocks that offer us a play on big markets.
And the one I have in mind actually reaches more young people desired by advertisers than either Instagram or its parent company,
Facebook Inc. ( FB ).
Indeed, this photo-based social media sensation even gave rise to the saying that, “the camera eats first.”
That’s an allusion to the fact that millions of young people take pictures of their food and beverages and then upload them to friends and contacts.
Don’t scoff. The stock has more than tripled the broad market’s return during the COVID Comeback.
And today I’m going to show you why this $22 stock still has so much upside ahead…
