To Be Ready for 2021, You’ll Need A Plan for Your Investments

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

There might not be any way to plan for a global pandemic and its resulting financial panic, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pay off big time to plan ahead, even in times like these.

And going forward without a plan means risking letting huge opportunities to score massive profits pass you by.

For example, anyone who didn’t have an investment plan in place this year likely ended up freaking out along with millions of other investors, lurching from crisis to crisis and making a series of bad financial decisions.

Just as bad, they even ran the risk of sitting on the sidelines confused as the market came roaring back.

Consider that just investing in the S&P 500 when it rebounded last March 23 was enough to make 65% returns in nine months.

And that’s why today, in the first of two parts to set you up for a profitable 2021, I m going to show you how to plan ahead, to give yourself the best possible chance of avoiding these pitfalls.

If you follow my lead here you can crush the market’s historic returns with breakout tech leaders.

Let me show you what I mean…

This New Type of Investment Opens Up A Whole New World of Opportunity in The Cannabis Sector

The market has led us on a wild ride this year. It dropped over 35% in February and March, and in only a matter of months, some indices were already hitting all-time highs again. Just look at the Nasdaq Composite, which is up 40% this year, even with the drop.

But the most interesting moves in the market this year have been from private companies entering the public markets.

The End of Old School Media Is About to Create A Huge Moneymaking Opportunity for You

So far, we’ve talked often about the importance of the cloud, big data, e-commerce, and artificial intelligence.

But there’s another very profitable field largely flying under the radar.

And it’s set to notch a historic milestone that’s going to be a massive win for the digital economy, and for investors like us.

Here’s the thing. When most folks think of advertising, the first idea that pops into their heads is Madison Avenue that has dominated TV, radio, and print for decades.

But a new study shows digital ads – those served up online or through handhelds – are about to surpass “old school” marketing.

We’re talking $110 billion in digital ads just for 2020 alone. That’s 51% of the ad industry’s forecast sales of $214.6 billion.

Today, I want to reveal a great way to play the whole digital ad space with a firm set to double its earnings in the next 18 months…

With This Michigan Cannabis Startup, You Can Invest Right Alongside the Godfather of Cannabis

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

With a medical program launching in 2008, the people of Michigan had a jump start in learning about the health benefits of cannabis while growers had time to perfect their craft.

By the time recreational sales started on December 1, 2019, you had an educated consumer base who could buy some of the best cannabis in the country. And Michigan smashed it out of the park, with almost $440 million recreational sales in its first year – more than both Nevada ($425 million) and Massachusetts ($420 million).

I visited Michigan in November because I wanted to see this boom for myself, which led me to one startup in particular that is accounting for 12% of all the sales in this state.

We took a look inside its growing facility earlier this week.

I was impressed with everything I saw, but there’s a cherry on top of all of this.

The Godfather of Cannabis himself also saw the moneymaking potential behind this startup, and he’s thrown his full support behind it as their Executive Chairman.

I want to tell you more about that today…

Here’s How to Profit from A Permanent New Economy

Just in time for Christmas shopping, I’m back on lockdown. Here’s the upside though; It’s pointing me towards a golden moneymaking opportunity.

As you may have heard, California Governor Newsom has issued strict new limits on the state’s businesses as coronavirus cases climb here.

That’s going to pose a huge burden on retailers who often count half their sales during the holidays.

I’m one of those last-minute retail buyers. Don’t get me wrong, I mostly shop online.

But I love to go to our local village and find a unique piece of jewelry for my lovely wife Tracy.

So, this year it’s going to be an all-e-commerce Christmas. And like millions of others, I will be using mobile payments for a good portion of it all.

Indeed, data compiled by cloud leader Inc. (CRM) says interest in mobile payments is at record levels as they head toward a value of more than $3.5 trillion.

Today, I want to show you a great way to play this surging sector with an investment that is beating the market by 73%…

Here’s How to Get Amazon’s Profitable Growth at One Third the Price

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The concept of “the cross-price elasticity of demand,” may sound like something just for econ nerds, but I assure you that it’s very profitable for you as well.

And my own experience earning an honors economics degree and serving as a college teaching assistant in the subject can make it pretty painless too.

Simply stated, cross-price elasticity of demand means that, if whiskey is expensive relative to beer, more people will buy the latter.

But what if there was a hidden way to get the equivalent of whiskey at beer prices? I don’t know about you but I’m on board with that.

Just take a look at Inc. (AMZN). The King of Ecommerce trades at about $3,130 a share.

But there is another leader in the same space whose stock costs less than one-third of AMZN even though its earnings are growing 10% faster.

Let me show you why this market crusher could double again in less than two years

This Company Could be the Amazon of Russia

I’m not sure I could have survived this year without shopping online, and I have a feeling many of you are thinking the same thing. In fact, e-commerce is growing faster than ever before, jumping to 16.1% of total retail sales in Q2 2020 from 10.8% last year in the United States.

That equates to billions of dollars spent online from groceries to electronics and even cars. That’s why we have seen stocks like Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP), Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Carvana Co. (NYSE: CVNA) skyrocket over 100% this year with everyone at home.

The best part about this is that it is not a trend that is going away anytime soon. According to a survey done by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the Covid-19 pandemic has forever changed online shopping behaviors. Following the pandemic, more than half of the survey’s respondents will continue to shop online more frequently.

The pandemic has accelerated the shift towards a more digital world, and we have seen that everywhere. We talked about it with MercadoLibre Inc. (NASDAQ: MELI) in Latin America and with Sea Ltd. (NYSE: SE) in Southeast Asia.

Now I want to talk to you about an entirely different market with a recent IPO that is taking e-commerce head-on in Russia.

We have all heard of Amazon and Alibaba, but chances are you have not yet heard about Ozon Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: OZON), one of the top e-commerce companies in Russia, with a bright future ahead of it. Interestingly enough, just like Amazon, it was founded as an online bookstore in 1998.

They quickly expanded to sell clothing, music, movies, electronics, fresh food, and now offer more than 9 million products across 24 product categories.

Now you may be thinking, isn’t there a lot of risk to investing in a foreign country? Well, yes there is always some risk in investing in foreign companies. The same could be said for investing in China, where companies like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA), Inc. (NASDAQ: JD), and Nio Ltd. (NYSE: NIO) have all brought triple-digit returns.

But I want to point you to where the growth is, and e-commerce in Russia is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country.

This Med-Tech Breakthrough Nearly Tripled the Market’s Returns, And It’s About to Go Even Higher

A very profitable chat we had back on May 19 is coming up on another chance to pay off right now

At the time I told you about a medical device leader that had just received approval for a Covid-19 test, and shot up 120% in two months.

But this is not just a COVID testing play. From early 2019 through this past February’s correction, this stock was outperforming the S&P 500 by an astonishing 278.5%.

This firm is a leader in the medical device market as part of a trend toward remote patient monitoring that’s been supercharged by the COVID pandemic.

With the coronavirus surging once again, the investment thesis is only getting better.

Today, I will reveal the name of this market crushing leader and show you why there ‘s still so much upside ahead…

The Rising Space Sector Is on A Dangerous Collision Course – This Company Can Save It, and Grow Your Portfolio

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

On November 6, I noted how a new set of satellites is about to make an important lift off.

I was speaking about SpaceX’s Starlink global constellation of 1,440 satellites to beam Web access down to Earth.

There’s just one problem with this ambitious plan. Outer space is filling up with dangerous junk.

We already have at least 3,100 dead satellites posing a risk of collision, according to the U.N.

With 10,000 new satellites slated to be launched in the next three years, the potential for danger is soaring.

It comes as forecasts suggest civilian space travel will boost the sector to at least $1 trillion. And just last week, Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. (SPCE) scored a key NASA contract.

As long as the threat of collisions of up there, though, this new sector and its incredible growth potential are at risk.

Luckily, I’ve identified a company focused on keeping the crowded skies safe. It just made a key merger to become a true space traffic controller.

Let me show you why it’s set to double earnings in just a little over three years…

Pets and Profit, a Man’s Best Friend

As holiday shopping comes to a close, this year felt a bit different. There was no camping out overnight in front of stores to get that doorbuster TV. Instead, everyone was in front of their computer or cell phones to buy everything they needed this year.

Cyber Monday was projected to be the largest online shopping day in U.S. history and it not only delivered, it crushed last year’s spending, increasing 15.1%. That equates to $10.8 billion spent in a single day according to Adobe’s shopping data, which pulls its data from one trillion visits to U.S. retail sites.

It really is the year of e-commerce and as I was digging through all the numbers this weekend, one big number stood out to me. Online spending on pet products rose 254%. Now, this wasn’t the biggest number reported by any means. Online grocery shopping rose almost 400% and personal care products skyrocketed 556%. But to me, the first number is much more important.
