I’m Most Excited About the iPhone 8 Because of This

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The iPhone 8 is set to hit the streets this fall – a little more than 10 years after the iPhone’s debut in summer 2017 – and all indications are it’ll be the smash hit we’ve been expecting.

Of course, the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) fans out there are excited, as we knew they would be.

I’m an Apple fan myself, but I’m fired up mostly for an entirely different reason.

Now, it’s not because of what the iPhone 8 is – the latest iteration of an outrageously popular and undeniably cool piece of personal tech…

And it’s not for what the new iPhone represents – the 10th anniversary of “iEverything”

Rather, it’s because of what the iPhone 8 has

This Is the Safest Bunker in Any Trade War

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

This was supposed to be a bad year for Chinese tech stocks.

A very bad year.

After all, President Donald Trump took office in January after months of criticizing China’s trade policies. And since then, he’s been heard screaming for tariffs.

So it’s no surprise that the know-nothings on Wall Street and in the establishment media continue to warn of a trade war with the world’s most populous nation. (After all, that’s where tariffs would put us.)

However, both the media and the Street both are missing a key fundamental driving China’s economy – internal growth, especially on the internet, untouched by trade.

It’s a sector that must be in your portfolio.

And I’ve dug up a way for you to get into the Chinese web sector – with very little risk to your portfolio.

So far in 2017, it’s demolished the S&P 500 by more than sixfold.

And there’s plenty more of that ahead…

How This 20-Year Anniversary Could Double Your Money

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Earlier this summer, we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone.

That was a big deal, as that smartphone is one of the top-selling gadgets of all time. It revolutionized mobile computing and basically took the world by storm.

Everyone talked about it – and we’ll likely see a new anniversary-themed iPhone before the end of this year.

And I think this anniversary may be even more important – and there’s a moneymaking opportunity because of it.

Wall Street Sharks Cost These IPO Investors $3 Billion

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

You can make a lot of money in high-tech initial public offerings (IPOs).

I have.

And so have my members – plenty of times.

But you must follow Your Tech Wealth Blueprint’s second rule for grabbing massive tech profits – Separate the Signals From “The Noise” – and avoid Wall Street’s hype machine.

To see what I mean, let’s put the recent IPO from the photo-centric social network and messaging service Snap Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAP) under our microscope.

When Snap began trading March 2, it was the most hyped tech IPO of the past few years. Investors were told they were crazy if they didn’t get in on the action of a hot young firm with 161 million daily users and $405 million in 2016 sales.

You can bet that Morgan Stanley, the investment bank that underwrote the IPO, stood to bank millions in fees.

Fair enough. That’s how investment banks and IPOs work.

But four months after making all that money, the sharks at Morgan Stanley pulled the rug out from under Snap investors, costing them a combined $3 billion.

Snap shares are now down 45% from their IPO price.

Outrageous.

But you can avoid all that – and still make a ton of money on IPOs.

Here’s how…

You Just Made 19.5% in One Day – but You Can Do Better

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The S&P 500 has moved roughly 8.3% higher since trading began last Jan. 3. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has done even better, gaining a little more than 10.1% in the period.

And both indexes stand near their record highs.

That’s not bad.

But you can do better.

A lot better.

Fulfilling financial dreams better.

In fact, if you followed my recommendation following our July 28 chat, you would have beat the gains of both those indexes – combined.

This Visionary CEO Has a 300-Year Plan – and It Could Make You Rich

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The very first “rule” in my Tech Wealth Blueprint holds that “great companies have great operations.” And those great operations require great leaders.

Now, these leaders don’t have to be “rock star” CEOs with name recognition, like Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg. But they do have to be competent and experienced, with the unique vision and wherewithal to make their product or service “indispensable” for billions of consumers no matter what’s happening in the rest of the world.

The kinds of leader who can reshape the world.

That’s the kind of leader – and the kind of company, of course – I’m going to fill you in on today. You might not be familiar with him. He’s certainly not as recognizable as Musk or Zuckerberg.

But I’ll put him (and his 300-year plan) up against those Silicon Valley greats any day of the week…

Alphabet Is Poised to Surge 1,294% – and These Real Estate Deals Prove It

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

About three months ago, a Silicon Valley associate of mine shelled out $2.5 million for a home.

That’s a lot of money – even in the San Francisco Bay Area’s sky-high real-estate market.

But consider these facts as well.

This is a 908-square-foot house.

The buyer paid $638,000 over the asking price three months ago.

And this tiny home is considered a “teardown.” That means my colleague has to gut it and rebuild from scratch.

Why so much for so little?

The home lies just three blocks from Stanford University – the heart of Silicon Valley and, therefore, the Convergence Economy we talk so much about here.

You may be wondering why I’m telling you a real-estate story in a technology investment service.

It’s because there’s a ton of money up for grabs in Silicon Valley’s torrid real estate market.

You can get a piece of that action – if you invest in the right tech companies.

Like the Silicon Valley landlord I’m going to tell you about today.

It’s Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL).

Thanks to its major SV real-estate holdings, I believe it will one day hand investors a stunning 1,294% gain.

Here’s how it could go down…

This Is the Perfect Time to Own My Favorite “Pick-and-Shovel” Legal Weed Play

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

There’s tremendous momentum in the legal cannabis sector right now. The boom is crackling with excitement and flush with money, reminiscent of the old California Gold Rush.

Call this the “Green Rush,” where weed investors are pulling in profits hand over fist.

Last month, for instance, it was reported that the 50 licensed marijuana retailers in Nevada, which only went “fully legal” on July 1, are already running out of marijuana to sell.

And California is less than six months from opening a legal, recreational market that will dwarf all other legal weed states, plus the entire nation of Canada. I’ll tell you why I’m expecting monster profits there in a minute.

This Mega-Cap Tech Company Has Made a Big Move Into Marijuana

11 | By Michael A. Robinson

The move to decriminalize and legalize cannabis is one of the great social sea changes of our age.

Consider this: In the United States alone the sanctioned market for cannabis will reach $7.1 billion this year, up from $1.5 billion in 2013 – 373% growth in barely three years.

By 2020, the market for legal marijuana will top $22.8 billion. Investment bank Ackrell Capital predicted in March that between 2016 and 2029 the market for marijuana will reach $100 billion – 1,308% growth.

Those huge numbers hide the fact that this market is still in its infancy.

After all, marijuana is still illegal in most of the United States. For that reason, there’s no accurate way of really knowing just how big this market could ultimately be.

However, one big-name tech company is positioning itself to profit as medical and recreational marijuana goes mainstream.

You could consider it an “entry point” into the wider world of the very young field of legal marijuana investing. This stock is about as safe and solid an investment as you’ll find – and it pays a generous dividend.

Still, this is a company that’s again on the rise thanks to its big moves in marijuana and other high growth fields – and so you can expect significant double- and even triple-digit gains from this “marijuana major” in a pretty short period of time.

You won’t believe what this “pot stock” is…
