With people spending more time at home, subscriber totals for Disney+, Netflix, and Roku have ballooned by the 10’s of millions, and 80% of U.S. households now have some way to stream videos.
The quality and amount of content is incredible, but there’s something that’s been lacking with the services listed above – the ability to just sit down and channel surf live TV, have live news updates running in the background, and watch your favorite sports as they are being played.
Thankfully, products like Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL)’s YouTube TV, DISH Network Corp. (NASDAQ: DISH)’s SlingTV, and Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS)’s Hulu+ Live TV have all helped us unplug from the traditional cable companies that charge an arm for a leg for a bunch of extra channels we don’t want or need.
You can now watch live TV with a simple internet connection anywhere and on any device.
Streaming services have experienced rapid growth in adoption over the last five years. And while almost 80% of U.S. households have some form of device for streaming video and subscribe to a streaming service, many of them still pay for access to cable.
A big part of this is that sports and news content have been a key driver for cable operators. Most streaming subscription services have chosen to focus only on entertainment offerings.
While traditional TV has suffered at the hands of newer services like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO, some people will never stop watching TV in that fashion.
Sometimes, you just want to sit down and channel surf live TV, turn on the news, or watch sports.
Just like 10 years ago, when I would come home from work and flip on the TV, I do the same today. But I don’t need a cable subscription to watch traditional TV. Many still want this, which is why we’re seeing services pop up from many big companies replicating traditional TV.
Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) has YouTube TV, DISH Network Corp. (DISH) has SlingTV, and Walt Disney Co. (DIS) has Hulu+ Live TV. This can all happen without plugging in a bulky cable box. All you need is an Internet connection. The best part is you don’t need to be tied to the TV. You can watch on your tablet and phone, on the go, or at home.
While there are many choices out there to watch traditional TV through digital means, I want to focus on a newer player. This one is taking a new approach to traditional TV.
COVID-19 has proven what I’ve been seeing for the past decade: the entire economy is the tech economy. You may not think that retailers like Walmart Inc. (WMT) and Target Inc. (TGT) are tech companies, but they have been boosting their revenue this past quarter on the back of multiplying e-commerce sales. It just goes to show that not only do leading tech innovators drive growth in the market, but any company, no matter what they do, can give themselves a much-needed edge by keeping up with the times. Add in the fact that growth investors, largely fueled by tech, have made more money in ten years than value investors have in thirty, and its plain to see that the road to wealth is paved with tech. There are plenty of opportunities approaching in the era of all things digital. Click to watch!
I’m so excited to come to you with a special video message. As a board member of the National Institute for Cannabis Investors, I admittedly receive a ton of privileges.

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…
Roku Inc. (ROKU) has been having some good days in early November, and it’s perfectly positioned to capitalize on the rise of streaming; but its future is not necessarily certain. The streaming platform has had to deal with some price instability after its quick rise, and now the question of whether its freemium pricing model can meet consumer demand is surfacing. Meanwhile, the digital streaming market is full of tough competitors – and there are two more prominent than ever, ready to hash it out. This is one battle you need to watch closely, as the winner could spell out huge profits for whomever latches on now. Click here to watch.
As fears of overexposure to the China trade dispute in the microchip and semiconductor sectors are being proven wrong, the market rallies. Investors are realizing that the banned Chinese company, Huawei, is not as tightly woven into those sectors as it had feared, and strong demand for chips will be driven on by the pending rollout of 5G technology. This means that those entire sectors are currently undervalued. As the new 5G upgrade cycle promises to keep demand high for years to come, there’s one company in this sector whose sales are up 24% since the market rally, and whose earnings are doubling nearly every three years – meaning huge growth potential if you latch on now.

If all you did was look at the headlines, you’d think this is a terrible time to invest in initial public offerings (IPOs).
Just take a look at this recent riff from Forbes, “Why WeWork Won’t Work! – Hello Neumann!,” or Bloomberg’s announcement, “Endeavor Makes Last-Minute Call to Yank IPO as Conditions Sour.” Big time financial news is clearly in love with the idea that anyone getting hyped up for a big name IPO is just setting themselves up for disappointment.
On paper, that narrative makes sense.
WeWork’s attempt at an IPO saw an optimistic estimated valuation of $47 billion falling to less than $14 billion before the offering was abandoned entirely. The loss was so devastating that the CEO resigned over it.
Not only that, but Peloton Interactive Inc. (PTON) dropped 11.2% in its first day of trading on Sept. 26, a decline which, according to The Wall Street Journal, directly influenced the decision of talent firm, The Endeavor Group, to also put off its own new stock debut out of fear of poor market conditions.
But what the media isn’t telling you is that tech and life sciences firms are still IPO leaders. That segment of the market is actually doing quite well overall.
With that in mind, today I’m going to reveal why tech IPOs are so important to the market and show you how to profit from this lucrative trend…
The fear among tech investors – regarding the FANGs, in particular – is ramping up now that the House Committee received bipartisan support in seeking information from Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple execs. The Nasdaq is down 0.23% in the past five days, and millions of investors are worried that the FANG run is over – but you shouldn’t be. Michael lets you in on two huge opportunities that are down right now but won’t be for long. Plus, one of them could run to $3,000 a share within 36 months. Click here to watch.
The big question facing investors right now is if tech is still the way to make money for the remainder of 2019. The tech-heavy Nasdaq is up 22% on the year but down 3.5% in August, after fears of “recessions” and “FANGs no more” stream across headlines. But, those fears aren’t something you need to worry about for now – especially when you have these six high-growth tech leaders in your portfolio. Plus a “bonus” pick that’s up 370% this year… but still could have room to run.
