New CEO, New Plans, New Profits: Don’t Miss This Semiconductor Turnaround Story (There’s a Lot of Money to Be Made)

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The word “catalyst” gets thrown around a lot in financial writing, but it’s an important word because recognizing what can be a boon for a company is the difference between average returns and market-crushing gains.

You can imagine my excitement then when I recently saw that a storied Silicon Valley leader I have recommended several times has not one, not two, not three, but four big catalysts.

The global chip giant I have in mind recently beat on earnings and raised guidance.

It also hiked the dividend andhired a new CEO.

And if that’s not enough, the company announced an ambitious turnaround plan and is investing $20 billion in its growth.

The effort comes a little more than 50 years after the firm introduced the first microprocessor that is the linchpin for today’s digital revolution.

In fact, this is one of the few companies that still both designs and manufacturers its own chips.

Let me show you why this stock is beating the broad market by 286% and why there are even more gains on the way for investors who get in now…

Your Car Buying You Starbucks: The Tech Behind It That Makes It Work and the One Investment to Make Right Now

You’ve heard of e-commerce, but let me tell you about the next big thing in tech that’s going to make you a lot of money – mobile commerce.

Mobile commerce, or m-commerce for short, is using devices like cell phones and tablets to conduct online transactions.

It was a trend I first shared with you back on June 20, 2013; a time when almost no other analysts were recommending m-commerce stocks. But on that day, I suggested that you buy shares of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) because it was a top supplier of chips for mobile devices.

If more and more shopping was going to be done through smartphones, phone makers would need the chips to make sure that could happen.

At the time, the stock price for NXPI was roughly $30 a share. It hit a recent high of $202.78 – a gain of 575%.

Now, with all the exciting technological advancements since then, I’m going to give you the inside track on what’s next… a new type of mobile transaction…that will allow for voice-controlled shopping from the comfort of your car.

Don’t scoff.

I believe this will be the next big thing in a sector valued at $2.9 trillion.

And I have the one investment to make before this trend really takes off.

Rewarding early investors and leaving latecomers in the dust

New York Lights a Spark in a $20 Billion Market That Will Be $40 Billion by 2025 (Here Are the Moves to Make Now)

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

While many SPACs have been targeting industries producing little to no revenue – like flying taxis – and causing rampant speculation, I’m looking at a sector that brought in roughly $20B in revenue in 2020 and is set to grow double digits every year for the next decade.

This is because cannabis legalization is spreading across the globe, including the monumental announcement that New York will become the second-largest market to legalize recreational marijuana. Bloomberg estimates that New York sales could generate roughly $4B, a deal that could push the entire cannabis industry into hypergrowth.

This is perfect timing for us.

When the Power Goes Out, This Company Puts It Back on (Here’s How it’s Turning the Profit Switch on For You)

California is experiencing irony so painful that you either have to laugh or cry. It’s the center of the world’s high-tech industries and the beating heart of high-tech innovation.

And yet, when the fall fire season rolls around, we’re likely to, once again, go through a series of shutdowns to that most basic piece of technology in our everyday lives, the power grid.

This trend is getting worse every year. In 2018, there were 20,598 blackouts, that affected 19 million people, and in 2019, that number rose to 25,281 blackouts affecting 28.4 million people.

That means that this is a problem that has worked its way up to affecting almost 75% of the people in the most populated state in the union.

But the good news is that one company can help get things up and running again…and fast.

It’s a world leader in the $17.4 billion market.

So, because they do such a good turning the lights back on when they go out, it’s going to make you a lot of money…

Wall Street is Counting Out the Biggest Breakthrough in Medicine – Here’s How to Make Their Mistake into Your Gain

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When Wall Street overreacts and goes right, you can make a fortune by avoiding the noise and going in the opposite direction.

In the latest edition of wild overreactions, Cathie Wood, the top-notch ETF manager of Ark Investment Management, received some flak from The Wall Street Journal.

I’ll have more on that in just a bit and why it is totally off the mark.

But make no mistake. Wood has an uncanny eye for finding breakout stocks with a market-beating track record to prove it.

One particular feather in Wood’s cap is an ETF that she runs focusing on the cutting-edge field of genomics, a tech that basically didn’t exist just a decade ago.

Without genomics, we wouldn’t have been able to understand the structure of the coronavirus. Not only that, but the first two vaccines approved both relied on a hot new segment of genomics.

And this is an industry that is projected to multiply from $18.85 billion in 2019 to $82.60 billion in 2027, according to Fortune Business Insights. That’s more than 300% growth in less than a decade.

I’ll give you more details in a moment. But first, I want to point out the sizzling returns that Wood has amassed.

Over roughly the past year, Wood’s fund beat the market by a stunning 471%.

Let me show you why this play is just getting started…

Space Travel Isn’t Just in Science Fiction Novels. It’s a Real Business and There’s a Moneymaking Opportunity You Can Make Today

Internet satellites launched into orbit by rockets that can return back to earth in nine minutes – that’s not a passage from a science fiction novel.

It’s what SpaceX did on March 24…showcasing an emerging technology with high growth potential…that can make you a lot of money.

Right now, 74 countries have some kind of space program, and 14 of them are capable of space launches. From tourism to space-based systems that blockchain technology and 5G are dependent to run on, there is a growing need for rockets to make that all possible.

Even the United Arab Emirates, a nation the size of South Carolina, is jumping into the space game.

The UAE’s Mars probe successfully orbited the red planet and is sending back pictures. Known as the Hope Probe, its mission is to create the first complete portrait of the Martian atmosphere.

This increased activity is one of the reasons why Morgan Stanley projects that, by 2040, the space sector will be worth $1.1 trillion.

Now, some companies are private and you can’t invest in them.

While others simply don’t deserve your hard-earned money.

That’s why I wanted to make sure you saw this before the weekend.

Because one company I’ve been watching closely just got even better thanks to a $4.4 billion acquisition.

Let me show you…

Now Is the Time to Be Selective in Tech

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

This month has been a rough time for tech, thanks to market pressures stemming from fear of inflation. But that doesn’t change my fundamental outlook. The bottom line is, if you want to make money, you need to be invested in tech because America needs tech to keep on running. Continue reading

It’s Not Too Late to Play the Covid Vaccine Rollout – All Thanks to This Company

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you missed the chance to get in early on coronavirus vaccine stocks, don’t worry.

It’s not too late.

Of course, investing in a “pure-play” at this point in the market cycle dogged by so many conflicting headlines could be pretty risky.

Any resistance from the FDA for a new vaccine and the maker’s stock could get pummeled.

I’ve seen it happen before and I can nearly guarantee it will happen again.

That’s why I’m excited to reveal a biotech supply firm that’s involved in developing and producing coronavirus vaccines.

Even better, this is a rare twofer – this supply firm isn’t just focused on new vaccines. It works with a huge swath of the biotech sector.

Its forte puts it squarely in a market that is on pace to be worth $456.8 billion.

Not only that, but this savvy leader is on pace to double its earnings in the next two years…

Get in on the SPAC With One of the Best Teams, and One of the Biggest War Chests

0 | By Alex Kagin

It has been another choppy week for the broader markets and SPACs, but the excitement could be coming back as we saw a big pop on a definitive agreement announcement. Fintech Acquisitions Corp. V (NASDAQ: FTCV) was up over 40% on the report that they will merge with the social trading platform eToro.

While the trust value was on the smaller side with this one at $250,000 million, it was led by Betsy Cohen, the SPAC veteran who brought Payoneer to market through FTAC Olympus Acquisitions Corp (NASDAQ: FTOC). The eToro deal will also include a $650 million PIPE so the trust size does not matter as much in this case.

This all leads me back to my #1 rule for investing in SPACs
