Right about this time of year, I get a lot of friends and family members asking for my advice.
Naturally, you might think it’s all about how to play tech stocks. After all, I run the investment services Nova-X Report, Radical Technology Profits and of course, Strategic Tech Investor.
I also frequently appear as a guest on national TV shows, such as CNBC, the Fox Business Network and Yahoo! Finance, to offer my analysis of big tech trends and how to invest in them.
But around Christmas time, I start getting questions about devices themselves.
Folks figure that since I spend hours each day researching every conceivable aspect of high tech, I must have some ideas about products that would make great Christmas gifts.
Of course, they’re right. In fact, I consider myself something of a technophile. There’s just something satisfying about holding the fruits of all that technical work in your hand, plugging them in your ears, or seeing them on your screen.
And that’s why today, I want to set you up with a Christmas gift list of seven really cool high-tech presents that are sure to surprise and delight your loved ones this holiday season.
Now then, since I don’t know what your personal budget is, I put this list together without making price the highest priority.
And along the way, I also let you know about an exciting new tech investing opportunity that’s set to get your New Year off to a good start.
Let’s get started…
When we spoke on Tuesday, I noted that blockchain technology is an unstoppable force set to disrupt industries around the world.
In particular, I said investors should look beyond cryptocurrencies to understand blockchain’s enormous potential.
We’re talking about technology that, I believe, could affect $8 trillion in global transactions. And I actually think that’s a conservative estimate.
See, the world’s total GDP runs at around $80 trillion a year. And blockchain tech could eventually underpin all of that buying and selling.
But I’m only assuming blockchain grabs a 10% market share of systems that are rapidly becoming archaic.
Here’s the thing. As amazing as it sounds, trillions of dollars in trade each year still relies on paper-based contracts or, frankly, old computer networks.
Thanks in part to blockchain technology, that’s all about to change. In a big way.
That’s why today, I want to show you four industries where blockchain technology could add security, transparency and greatly reduce business costs – and bolster the bottom line for the innovative firms using this technology.
This is the kind of “strategic info” that could make you look smart at your office Christmas party or next family gathering.
Better yet, put it to use wisely, it could help you pinpoint your next few triple-digit winners – and that’ll be even more fun to share with friends and family.
