The other day, fresh powder was falling on my favorite local ski resort near Lake Tahoe, so naturally I headed for the slopes.
Skiing is great exercise, and it helps clear my mind from the distractions that come with closely following the tech and cannabis sectors. It keeps me focused on what’s really important – making money every day for my readers and subscribers.
But sure enough, even on the slopes, it’s hard for me to escape… what’s on the horizon for the cannabis industry and cannabis stocks this year.
Let me explain.
See, on my latest trip, I wound up riding the chairlift with a guy who works in cannabis compliance. He told me how a firm he was working with had to destroy millions in cannabis product because it didn’t comply with the state’s onerous regulations.
Our conversation was cut short when the lift ended, and I lost track of him that day, but this guy’s story brought home my point about California’s shaky cannabis rollout, and how this over-regulation needs fixing for it to really take off.
When we spoke on Jan. 15, I told you how I believe California’s market will be at least 50% larger than all of Canada’s, after the state improves some of the regulations that have caused a lot of headache and lost revenue.
Sure enough, it looks like state lawmakers are moving fast to provide better banking and tax rules for California’s cannabis industry.
That’s great news for cannabis investors. But there’s a whole lot more going on in the states outside of California, too.
And all of this legalization activity presents a great opportunity to get in on a sector that’s set to soar…
At the time, analysts and the media were worried about the impact of a fatal crash involving the Indonesian service, Lion Air, that killed 189 people would have on Boeing.
No, I was in no way, shape or form making light of that tragic crash involving one of the firm’s iconic 737s, an industry workhorse. I noted the aerospace juggernaut had just received a post-crash order for more 737s worth a stunning a $5.9 billion.
And I went on to predict that Boeing’s stock was set for a nice rebound. Since that time, shares are back up nearly 22% – or more than 20 times that of the S&P 500 during the period.
The purpose of my note today isn’t to brag – well, maybe just a little bit -but to give you some more good news.
I have uncovered a hidden way to play Boeing’s breakout with a key supplier that also is set to crush the market…
I’ve just made a big tech change in my home, and it’s about time.
I am wholeheartedly embracing cloud computing.
When it comes to adopting new consumer tech, price, convenience and ease of use are factors just about everyone considers before taking the plunge – and I’m no different.
Back on Jan. 22, for instance, I told you I was getting ready to upgrade the wireless network for my home office. And I mentioned a great way to play the wireless networking market with the Wi-Fi router firm Ubiquity Networks Inc.(Nasdaq:UBNT).
So I’m happy to report that I installed three Ubiquity WiFi routers in my home… and I love them. No wonder this company is on fire.
But after I set up the Ubiquity system, I also realized I could break from my reliance on hard-disk computing and fully embrace cloud data storage and applications. That’s why I also upgraded my iCloud account through Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:APPL), so I can take full advantage of its powerful platform.
What a difference it’s made. I now have a powerful one-two punch.
And I’m not alone here. In fact, I’ve joined a tech segment that is growing at nearly 28% a year on billions in revenue.
Which is why today, I’m going to show you how to capitalize on this trend. And show you a great way to play this high-growth field…
If you know many Millennials, you probably know an important fact about this group of young people and their banking habits.
Folks between the ages of 18 and 35 including Millennials, are shunning traditional banks and the credit cards that go along with them… which presents us with a great opportunity today.
Let me explain.
If you’re anything like me, you probably have more plastic in your wallet than you can actually use.
I have two credit and two debit cards, and just as many bank accounts. Several times a year, I receive an offer for pre-approved credit cards, too.
Of course, I’m a Baby Boomer, and by definition that makes me “old school.” In fact, the American Banker’s Association estimates that 70% of adult Americans have at least one credit card. It goes without saying that those same folks have at least an account with a physical financial institution.
But that was then, this is now…
Today, the most desirable consumer group in the nation, is also becoming a potential gold mine for a savvy fintech firm that understands the world of digital payments.
These internet-native Americans are the largest population cohort in the U.S., and they prefer to make their payments digitally – and the convenience that comes with doing so.
That’s why today’s profit opportunity comes in the form of a company poised to crush the market by catering to these digitally minded Millennials…
You might have been reading the news lately about the U.S. government’s plans to return to the moon – and continue on to Mars and beyond.
A lot of the headlines have focused on what’s being described as the “next space race.”
That’s mostly because nations like China, which recently landed its Chang’e 4 spacecraft on the far side of the moon, and India, which plans to land on the moon later this year, are making large strides in their space programs.
The U.S. has its own plans, too. In 2017, President Trump asked NASA to return humans to the moon, signing Space Policy Directive 1. That official recommendation’s cornerstone project is NASA’s Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway, a space station that’d orbit the moon and serve as a launching pad for further missions to Mars and beyond.
At first glance, launching a new operation with 52 million customers sounds likes starting out with a built-in moat.
And that’s exactly what NBC Universal was looking for when it announced on Jan. 16 it’s launching a new online video service.
To sweeten the offer to its installed base, NBC says the new service will be free to existing clients – though to get it for “free,” members have to put up with watching ads.
Whether a new ad-supported streaming service will work in the long run is an open question. But this much is clear, the media is making it sound like the streaming media war is entering a brutal new phase.
On paper at least, that makes a lot of sense. After all, The Walt Disney Co.(NYSE:DIS) is set to launch its own service late this year based on its unique content.
But if these competing headlines make you feel uncertain about how to make money – and which firms will succeed – in this great tech field worth nearly $139 billion, don’t worry.
I’ve got you covered. Today, I’m not only going to show which streaming video firm will lead the pack…
And I’m going to tell you why, when markets still seem unsettled, it’s also a great stock to own for the long haul…
I have a confession to make – I’m a total speed freak.
No, I’m not talking about pushing the 321-horsepower engine in my Acura Hybrid MDX to its limits, though that can be fun at times.
Here’s the thing. I’m an absolute nut when it comes to getting fast web access. One of my favorite mobile apps is Ookla, which measures your internet speeds.
I use it all the time to see how fast my handhelds and other wireless clients are networking. I also use it when I’m on the road, or working from remote locations.
This is fresh on my mind for one simple reason: I’m getting ready to upgrade the wireless network in my home and office from a guaranteed 100 megabits download speeds to either five or 10 times faster – up to a gigabit a second.
Turns out, I am far from alone. Market Research Future says the wireless networking market is growing 13.5% a year, and will be worth $96.6 billion in 2023.
That’s why today, I’m going to show you the play to make to capture value in this cutting-edge sector.
And I’m going to lay out the five reasons it’ll get you there.
