The Fight Against Cybercrime Is Creating a New $304 Billion Sector

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The FBI is on the move, accessing hundreds of private computers and related networks. The idea might make civil libertarians foam at the mouth, but they’re doing the country a favor that it seriously needs.

That’s because this move is a crucial step towards stopping the threat of a vicious new hack dubbed Hafnium.

Hafnium is bedeviling thousands of companies throughout the US. This is the latest in a string of hacks pushing the value of the cybersecurity market to $304 billion by 2027.

In fact, the email services firm Mimecast Ltd. claims that as many as 61% of companies experienced ransomware attacks in 2020, and almost 80% of organizations were harmed by a lack of cybersecurity preparation.

With that in mind, today I want to let you in on a relatively new cyber investment that is perfectly positioned to cash in on this rising industry…

America’s Healthcare Providers are Under Attack – This Company Is Fighting Back

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Hospitals just can’t seem to get a break these days.

Hundreds of them have been working around the clock to treat the millions of Americans afflicted by the deadly coronavirus.

And now, medical centers across the US, are finding themselves under siege by a very different “virus.”

That’s because the healthcare sector ranks as the top choice for hackers trying to burrow into networks. Once in, they either launch malicious software known as “malware” or demand money- and sometimes both.

Take the case of Universal Health Services hospital system based in King of Prussia, PA.

The cyber-attack it received took the form of “ransomware” – locking users out of their own IT systems, and demanding payment to restore access.

Fortunately, there is a leader in the roughly $140 billion cybersecurity market that can help hospitals and businesses across the board.

In fact, there’s a new catalyst for the stock that I believe will help it double earnings in as little as three years…

Buy This SPAC to Play the Quantum Transformation of Computing

0 | By Alex Kagin

SPAC trading has definitely had its ups and downs over the last few months and this week we hit not one, but two SPAC milestones. There are now over 500 active SPACs in the market, and we have surpassed the 248 in total launched in 2020 in less than 3 months. This means there is over $150 billion in trust looking for the best private company to bring public. Read more.

Silicon Valley Is Forming a Historic Partnership With Detroit – Here’s Your Chance to Cash in on It

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The grandaddy of the American auto industry is now fully embracing 21st Century digital tech.

And on the flipside, Silicon Valley is taking its well-earned place at the heart of the new and modern auto industry

See, cars today are basically computers running on four wheels and equipped with a drivetrain.

But the software drivers use to interact with their in-dash displays are often very clunky. It’s been a problem because they run on proprietary software that can’t keep up with Silicon Valley’s ace coders.

So, Ford Motor Co. (F) is getting a software makeover. The nation’s oldest carmaker has announced it will equip its vehicle displays with a suite of Android apps from Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) starting in 2023.

And while I applaud this move, I think there is a much better way to cash in on the $13 billion auto software market growing at 15% a year.

It’s a firm that trades at a fraction of GOOGL’s $1,900 share price.

Even better, it’s growing earnings 83% faster than GOOGL and is on pace to double them in just 3.25 years…

This Breakthrough Will Transform Every Display Screen in the World – and It’s a Chance to Double Your Money

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

We’re in the midst of a massive tech upgrade cycle that’s virtually flying under the radar, even though it has the potential to affect nearly every home in America.

You see, it’s a move that will affect billions of smartphones, tablets, and laptops. According to Pew Research, more than 80% of Americans own a smartphone, and nearly 75% of adults own either a desktop or laptop.

On top of that, this breakthrough will reach even further by affecting millions of television sets and electronic signs, not to mention your car’s infotainment screen that displays maps and other vital data.

And this will all be possible thanks to OLED, or organic light-emitting diode, technology, a breakthrough that will greatly improve the user experience.
Right now, this technology is working its way through the global electronics supply chain.

In fact, LG Electronics recently debuted a transparent TV, the new state of the art in that field. That breakthrough would not be possible without OLED.

Today, I’m going to reveal the leading supplier in this $48 billion market and show you why its shares could double once again in less than three years…

Don’t Play the Hype of the Most Recent E-commerce IPO – Buy This Instead

2 | By Alex Kagin

It’s funny – with vaccines rolling out and stores starting to open as lockdowns ease, you’d think one of the hottest market trends over the past year – e-commerce – would start to slow, too.

But that’s not the case.

The Covid-19 pandemic shifted e-commerce in 2020 and into this year, maybe more than any other time in history.

Sales skyrocketed as brick-and-mortar stores took their business online using platforms like Shopify Inc. (SHOP), Etsy Inc. (ETSY), Chewy Inc. (CHWY), Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN), and a change in people’s buying habits had changed forever.

In the third quarter of 2020, e-commerce volume increased 36.7% over the prior year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

And it won’t stop or slow down.

This Picture-Perfect Investment Is Stronger Than Facebook and Instagram

2 | By Michael A. Robinson

Today, I need to talk to you about an aggressive young firm.

One that has a stranglehold on an advertiser dream come true.

It reaches more shoppers in the 13 to 34 age group than either Instagram or that firm’s parent company, Facebook Inc. (FB).

And the best part is, it’s still flying under Wall Street’s radar.

In fact, in the roughly six months since June 23, it’s doubled in value. Which is why it fell off the radar in the first place.

But here’s the thing.

Back then, the stock was underpriced, trading at around $22 a share.

And it’s still underpriced – something you won’t hear from many others – even at roughly $50 a share.

Which means I’m expecting it to crush the market from here on out.

Today, you’re going to see just why…

Every Car Is A Computer, And Every Computer Is A Chance for You to Make Money

With apologies to Mark Twain, reports of the chip sector’s demise were greatly exaggerated.

See, last winter, several leading chip stocks faced downgrades as Wall Street hit freak-out mode.

The thinking at the time was that a global recession and a supply chain strained by the pandemic would put a big crimp in semiconductors sales.

Now it can be told. The exact opposite turned out to be true.

As I have noted here several times, the global chip industry is booming.

Turns out the pandemic caused a surge in demand for tech across the board. And that puts chips at the center of everything.

A key industry report recently raised 2021 forecasts for the $433 billion sector. Semis are now supposed to rise 8.4% next year, nearly 65% more than last year.

Today, I want to show you a great backend play on the entire sector with a company that has beat the broad market by 71.6%…

Apple Is Giving A Middleman the Axe – And Opening the Door for You

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The Silicon Valley success manual is just three words; Faster, Better, Cheaper.

I heard it all over the place when I moved to the Valley in 1984, and over time, all sorts of industries have latched on to it in search of higher profit margins.

It takes Moore’s Law, which states that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles roughly every two years, and turns it into rock-solid business advice.

Even NASA made this their mantra back in 1992 when the agency embarked on an aggressive schedule of 16 launches, including sending a rover to Mars.

Tim Cook has clearly read this mantra too, and is making all of the hefty experience behind it his guide with his recent announcement of an ambitious plan for Apple Inc. (AAPL) to use its own chips to power Mac computers.

This decision has the potential to more than triple computing power in some apple products, while saving customers as much as 10%, all while boosting profit margin.

I believe this is a very savvy move. And today, I will show you how it will help Apple continue to double the market’s return…
