How Can Apple Keep Up in the Cook Era?

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When we spoke a few days ago, I noted how my friend “Pete” had passed on recommending Apple Inc. (AAPL) to his Wall Street clients.

This was back in 1997, around the time the late Steve Jobs returned to run the Silicon Valley Legend. Since then, the stock has experienced the kind of gains that can turn $10,000 into $3,433,860.

Today, I have another anecdote to share with you regarding Apple. This one involves a friend I will call “Steve.”

Back in the summer of 2012, Steve told me over lunch that he had recently sold all his Apple stock. He said he did so because he felt that the new CEO Tim Cook would never match the innovation that occurred under Jobs.

It’s possible I need to make savvier friends…just saying…both missed the boat on Apple – and left a lot of money on the table.

Under Cook, Apple has continued its historic run, rising as much as 395.6% in a little more than eight years.

Today, I want to show you why Apple could double again in value

Ignoring the Media’s Noise Can Be the Key to Massive Gains

I sure hope you don’t make the kind of big investing mistake as that of my friend “Pete.”

He passed on one of the greatest tech opportunities of all time.

I have actually have changed his name for our chat today.

That’s because, if he finds out I told you this anecdote, I’m sure he will be red-faced all day with extreme embarrassment.

You would feel the same way, too, if you turned your back on the chance to earn a return of a whopping 34,238.5%.

Those are the kinds of gains that would turn $10,000 into $3,433,850

Just let that sink in for a moment.

This is why I keep saying it only takes a handful of tech winners – and in some cases just one – to make you a millionaire, if you know where to look.

With that in mind, in the first part of our chat, I’m going to show you how this stock is set to double again in less than five years…

How Proofpoint Could Double Your Investment and Then Double It Again

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

Last Tuesday, I showed you a market-crushing leader that defines high-tech wealth.

The fact is that Proofpoint Inc. (PFPT) is a great way to play the field of anti-phishing cyber security, a major growth field.

But don’t take my word for it. None other than the FBI says these kinds of intrusions cost the American public $12.5 billion in financial damages in the 55 months ended May 2018.

And during that period, early Proofpoint’s stock totally cleaned up. From Nov. 12, 2012, when it closed at $10.22 through its most recent closing high of $130.14 on Oct. 15, 2019, PFPT made 1,173.4%.

Along the way, the stock beat the benchmark S&P 500 by a stunning 902.5%.

Even better, just $25,000 invested in Proofpoint would have turned into $313,350 in only seven years

But don’t worry. I still see plenty of upside ahead. In as little as three years, that original $25,000 will be worth a conservatively estimated $1.27 million.

Let me show you why it’s still not too late to get in on all the action

Proofpoint: Securing Your Emails and Your Financial Future

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you want to become a high-tech millionaire, sometimes all you have to do is check your email.

Let me explain. In four days, I received two emails purporting to help me with e-commerce issues.

Good thing I didn’t open them. Each one was a “phishing expedition.”

That’s the term we use when you get an email that looks legit but actually is an attempt to steal your financial data or launch an attack on your computer.

The reason why I am telling you this now is that odds are pretty good that you will receive at least one yourself. And during the frenzy that is Christmas shopping, you may get careless – and hacked.

So, at the very least, today’s chat may save you hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars.

It also will help keep your key financial data secure from cyber thieves who have used bogus emails to do at least $12.5 billion in financial damages.

Even better, I’m going to reveal a cyber leader that is exactly the type of stock that can hand you a 7-figure return in a few short years

The Five Trends That Could Help This Tech Firm Double the Market’s Returns

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

I don’t know about you, but I would love to own a piece of the Fast & Furious movie franchise.

I recently saw a preview for the ninth installment set to debut in the spring of 2020. I’m a big fan of the action-adventure genre in general, and this series of movies in particular.

It features a group of misfits who transform from street racing hot rods to become an international espionage team.

Don’t scoff, there’s big money here. To date, the nine movies have brought in more than $5 billion.

Here’s the thing. Something similar is happening in the high-margin software sector.

Technically speaking, it’s a field known as “DevOps.” The term refers to the $50 billion up for grabs by helping companies make a transition from legacy systems to cutting-edge digital tech.

Today, I’m going to show you what I call ‘Software’s Fast & Furious.’ And I’ll reveal a company that will more than double the market’s return for years to come…

Supercomputing Supplier to Rake in Profits From U.S.-China Chip War

If you think China‘s tech sector is all about playing copycat, think again.

The United States has fallen behind in a key field after leading for It lies at the heart of such cutting technologies as Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, Big Data, even cracking the mysteries of the universe.

Of course, I’m talking about supercomputing. You see, China unveiled the world’s fastest computing last year. And in a slap in the face for Silicon Valley, did so without U.S. chips.

That’s why on June 14, the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) said it will provide a three-year, 258 million grant to six American tech leaders. The goal is simple: reclaim the top spot from China.

Doing so includes not just computing, but advances in the brains that runs these machines and semiconductors.

Today, I’m going to reveal five reasons why a leading chip supply firm will make out like gangbusters no matter who wins the race…

Why “Don’t Panic” Is the Best Advice You’ll Ever Get

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Imprinted on the cover of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – the fictional “standard repository for all knowledge and wisdom” in the comedic sci-fi series of the same name by Douglas Adams – is the phrase “Don’t Panic.”

Arthur C. Clarke, a British science-fiction author even more renowned than Adams, called it the “best advice” that could be given to humanity.

He was right.

That’s why the same sentiment is behind Rule No. 2 of our five-part investing system, which says to “Separate the signal from the noise.”

And I hope you followed that rule back in the summer of 2015, when it seemed like all of Wall Street and Silicon Valley were panicked over Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

At the time, the so-called “experts” said the sun was about to set on the world’s most valuable tech franchise – and fled its stock in droves.

However, if you followed along here and put into action our tech wealth-building strategies when it came to Apple, then you’re sitting on some huge gains.

If you’re new around here, you can do the same thing.

Here’s how…

Trump’s Chinese Policy Can’t Touch This 40%-per-Year Sector

4 | By Michael A. Robinson

In his first days in office, President Donald J. Trump has made it clear that his tough talk on China was more than just campaign rhetoric.

He continues to criticize the world’s second-largest economy for what he says are unfair trade practices. Not only that, but he’s also suggested slapping up to 45% tariffs on Chinese imports.

Along the way, he has lambasted U.S. tech firms that outsource production to China and then sell those goods here at home.

And then there’s the South China Sea. During his confirmation hearing, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said China should be blocked from the artificial islands it’s built in this crucial shipping route.

With all this saber-rattling, now would seem to be the worst possible time to invest in anything related to China.

I don’t know about you, but that kind of thinking – that kind of pessimism – just makes me dig deeper… to do more research. Because I know there’s always a place to make money in any market.

You just have to find it.

And my excavations have uncovered a sizzling Chinese tech sector that lies well beyond the reach of the leader of the free world.

Today we’re going to investigate a unique vehicle that allows us to tap into firms that are growing as much as 40% a year.

And that will boost your initial investment by similar amounts.

The 3 “Singularity Era Tools” You Need in 2017

2 | By Michael A. Robinson

Last New Year’s Eve, as my wife and I put together our Annual Report, I had a revelation.

And it’s one that can help you – organizationally… and financially.

Coffee-Laptop-ChartsI realized that our Annual Report is built with open-source tech platforms.

Open-source platforms like Linux and Hadoop are free to the public to use and, for example, write code, create cloud storage, or develop Big Data applications.

And they’re becoming very popular in the Singularity Era. That’s because with these platforms tech execs save money, run their business more efficiently… and rake in the profits.

You can do the same thing.

In fact, there are three “Singularity Era Tools” that you can use every day to improve your skill set, find winning stocks, know when to cut your losses – and enjoy peace of mind.

With these three free tools, you can build your picker’s “muscles” – improving your odds of crushing the market, not just this year but for many years to come.

How to Avoid Being Collateral During the Next Cyberattack

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Just a couple of hours ago, I received a call from one of my team members at Money Map Press – and it left me a bit confused.

He described to me a big corporation suffering from a massive DDoS attack (distributed denial-of-service), and then he went on and on about how some “white hat” hacker was called in to solve the problem.

Naturally, I figured he was talking about the major DDoS attack that – at that very moment – was taking down a lot of prominent U.S. websites, including Amazon, Twitter, Shopify, Spotify, and Github.

But he was just getting some of the important details wrong.

Why was he describing a single corporation being cyber-attacked instead of dozens of websites? And how did he know so much about a particular individual being called in to handle it, right down to the guy’s name (Elliott)?

Worse than that, he tried to tell me about how Elliott himself was also a target of this cyberattack…

I was getting concerned. Was my colleague suffering from some sort of paranoiac delusion?

That wasn’t the case – thankfully.

Today I’ll reveal to you what my colleague was talking about – and how it connects to today’s huge DDoS attack.

And then I’ll show you how this story “converges” with an ETF I tipped you off to a few weeks ago.

It may sound like some sort of conspiracy theory – but it’s really a huge profit opportunity…
