Where There’s Work, There’s Money

Let’s face it: most investors would hardly consider their local convenience stores to be bastions of high tech.

But we’re not most investors. We know from our market-crushing history that seemingly minor news can contain highly profitable nuggets.

That’s why a recent press release regarding a decision by the Maverik, Adventure’s First Stop chain of convenience stores and gas stations really caught my eye.

Operating 350 stores across 11 western states, the firm recently decided to buy a software platform that integrates and streamlines store execution and labor scheduling for more than 6,000 employees.

I believe this speaks volumes about why the market for workforce management software is set to hit $9.9 billion by 2025.

And I’ve identified a storied leader in workforce management, logistics and robotics that is set to profit handsomely from this sector.

This is a stock that has already beaten the S&P 500 over the past five years by 834.9%.

Let me show why this convenience store news means there’s so much upside ahead…

The BTC Necessities

On the surface, you’d never guess that El Salvador and China had a burgeoning rivalry.

I’m referring to their high-stake battle in the massively important and fast-moving world of cryptocurrencies.

President Xi Jinping recently cracked down on Bitcoin mining, which sent prices of the world’s largest digital coin tumbling.

However, I’m convinced a key data point was lost in the political shuffle. It’s something I’ve discussed before- the unstoppable rise of digital currency.

Just weeks ago, El Salvador became the first nation to officially recognize Bitcoin as legal tender.

Make no mistake. This is an important milestone in the mass adoption of digital currency that now boasts a stunning $1.6 trillion market cap.

Today, I’ve got a great backend play on this space for you…

We’ve written about fintech here a lot at Strategic Tech Investor and there is a good reason why; it has made financial transactions easier than ever before and stodgy old banks that have made little changes to their process over the years make easy targets. When I also hear Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase calling fintech an “enormous competitive” threat to banks, I get pretty excited.

Fintech Isn’t Just Payments – It’s a Chance to Cash in on Disrupting a $1.1 Trillion Market

If you want to make big money in the growth field of fintech, there’s a new acronym you absolutely need to know about; BNPL, or “buy now, pay later.

Right now, it’s on its way to capturing 5% of global e-commerce sales (excluding China).

And while that might sound like a small percentage, there are actually big bucks at play here. We’re talking about a value of $166 billion. It’s a figure that’s more than big enough to let us crush the market.

The key to all of this is a growth-centric firm that is pioneering this field to a very profitable effect.

It beat the market’s historic return last year by a stunning 180.6%.

Let me show you why the stock is already on pace to double again in less than three years…

This SPAC Is Making Its Move in Fintech – and It Could Catapult Your Portfolio to New Heights

Dear Strategic Tech Investor Reader,

It is amazing to think that 150 years ago in 1871, Western Union debuted the first electronic fund transfer. Way before the internet, computer, and even the telephone, this first payment was done via the telegraph and proved to be immensely successful, setting off what we know today as Fintech.

Now the industry today is much more than sending payments. It’s managing funds, trading stocks, cryptocurrency, lending, payment plans, and much more, all conducted through apps on your phone or on a computer.

It really is incredible how far we have come, and in the last year, we have moved faster than ever before as traditional banks closed their doors and fintech took over.
