The Best Way to Play the $716 Billion Defense Budget

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

I hope you didn’t lose faith in a big prediction I made at the beginning of last year.

I noted that the Trump defense buildup was going to be the biggest we’ve seen since President Reagan took office in January 1981.

But if you doubted my forecast, I can certainly understand why.

After all, in the days before the recent two-year pact over the federal budget, Big Media was filled with stories about how Trump was about to suffer a huge setback for his military goals.

I lost count of the number of stories I read predicting that Congress would force the president to cut back on his Pentagon plans.

So, I’m happy to report that the media was wrong and I was right all along.

When it’s all said and done, the $716 billion defense budget gets a nice boost that bodes well for the sector’s ongoing growth and earnings.

And today I want to reveal a great way to play this profitable trend with an investment that is beating the broad market by 74.5%…

The Momentum Behind These 4 Tech Winners

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

A lyric from one of my favorite contemporary hard rock songs is playing loudly in my head.

Let me explain. As a boomer “of a certain age,” I like to keep in shape with exercise and also remain young at heart.

That’s why I have put together a killer list of hard rock songs from modern bands like Halestorm, Pop Evil, Shinedown and Papa Roach. When I hit the gym or the slopes up at Tahoe, I have 54 playlists each with 14 songs to choose from.

And right now, I can hear Godsmack’s “I Stand Alone,” the hit song from the movie “The Scorpion King” on mental repeat.

I believe it’s an appropriate soundtrack for my 2019 tech forecast I told you about on Jan. 1. At the time, the media was barraging us with stories about an impending “recession.”

But I stood apart from the crowd and predicted a strong year tech.

With that in mind, I’m updating my forecast to show you why there’s still lots of money to be made and how to get in on the action…

The Way to Play the Red-Hot, $232 Billion Cyber Security Market

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Big Media was all over the recent settlement the federal government reached with Equifax Inc. (EFX).

It’s easy to see why. The credit reporting agency agreed to pay up to $700 million to settle claims brought by the Federal Trade Commission and most state attorneys general.

Here’s the thing. Nearly all of the dozens of stories about the Equifax deal focused on the size of the award and how consumers affected by the cyber intrusion can seek compensation for the time and money they had to spend.

In fact, Equifax set up a website to deal with many of the 147 million Americans whose sensitive data was put at risk after hackers breached the firm’s network.

And while I’m all for providing consumers with some money after all the hassles they went through, there’s one glaring omission from the media’s barrage.

It’s something we deal with her twice a week – how to make money from massive tech trends.

With that in mind, I’m going to give you the key details about a market-beating winner that is a great play on the red-hot cyber security market…

Three (Tech) Market Crushers That Continue to Lead the Market Higher

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

My wife says that at the rate I’m going, we’re going to have to buy a new table.

Let me explain. My job as your tech analyst is to go beyond the headlines and find great tech stocks that can absolutely crush the market – in good times and in bad.

And that often means pounding the table for the global tech ecosystem in general, and for market rippers in particular.

That’s exactly what I did back on Jan. 11. You may not recall it, but in my mind’s eye, it’s as if it were just yesterday.

At the time, the tech-centric Nasdaq had entered bear market territory, defined as a 20% drop from a recent high. I said it was “fear and not fundamentals” that was driving the market lower.

I then listed three beaten-down tech leaders I said were poised for big rebounds.

Today, I’m following up let you know – all three just crushed it, as I’ll show you. And I’ll also show you why there’s still plenty of upside ahead…

Your Shot at VC Style Returns, on the Cheap

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When we spoke on July 2, I gave you three venture capital (VC) tools you can use to screen privately held companies.

At the time, my focus was on the cannabis sector. But I indicated that these tools also can be used to screen for winning publicly traded tech stocks.

And today, I’m following up to let you know about a great way to become a VC-style investor. We’re targeting a company that is doing all the heavy lifting for us.

Here’s the thing. In the venture world, you can make 10 times your money.

But it’s almost impossible for the average retail investor to get involved.

You face two big problems.

First, most of the time you have to be a high net worth individual. And second, even if you make that cut, you have to have the right Silicon Valley contacts to get in on the action.

That’s why I want to reveal a great tech stock that offer long-term profits by operating one of the world’s top VC funds. And it just happens to be a stock that’s dirt cheap… at the moment.

A Mind-Bending Play on the Tech Behind Elon Musk’s Latest Project

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Elon Musk has a new frontier he wants to conquer.

And no, this is not part of his recent rocket launches, nor his bold plans to get humans to Mars.

What I’m talking about is sitting right between your ears.

Let me explain. The famed SpaceX pioneer has just announced plans to implant chips in human brains as early as next year.

The idea is to connect our minds directly to a computer. It’s a field generally known as brain computer interface, known in the field as BCI.

Then again, Musk has been at this for several years now. He officially got started back in 2016, when he unveiled privately held Neuralink Corp.

And while I believe Musk has a good chance of achieving his BCI “moonshot,” he’s years away from having any kind of real sales.

But don’t worry. I have an investment to tell you about that is essential for this technology. And it offers us lots of upside right now, today…

The Sky’s the Limit for This Play on the $164.3 Billion Cloud Computing Sector

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of one our nation’s greatest accomplishments.

Actually, strike that… It’s one of the top achievements in the history of the human race.

When Neil Armstrong walked on the moon on July 20, 1969, the event was far more than making good on President John F. Kennedy’s moonshot goal.

It cemented our reputation as the most technologically advanced nation on earth.

All across America, folks stopped what they were doing to watch Armstrong on TV as he descended the steps of the lunar landing module.

Today, we take all the computing advances the event signified for granted. After all, our smart phones are more powerful that what NASA had to get us to moon and back.

But what most folks don’t know is the essential, behind-the-scenes role that software played in it all.

That’s why I want to briefly review what happened back then. Along the way, I’ll reveal a tech investment that will help put your portfolio in orbit…

Cashing In on the Growing “E-Bay of Latin America”

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you just looked at the headlines, now would appear to be the very worst time to invest in Latin American tech.

After all, the Trump administration recently threatened to put big tariffs on goods from Mexico.

The president did that to get our neighbor to help with the crisis of undocumented workers on the porous southern border.

Under the recent agreement, Mexico will work to stem the flow of migrants leaving other Latin American nations in search of opportunities here in the U.S.

Much of what’s going on has to do with simple economics. While the region overall is in good shape, countries like Ecuador and Mexico are growing more slowly than the U.S., where GDP recently clocked in at 3.1%.

So, it may sound counterintuitive to learn that there is a Latin American e-commerce leader that is growing much faster than many tech firms based here in the U.S.

But that’s exactly what I’m going to reveal today. And I’ll show you why this hot tech leader will continue to crush the overall market…

Three VC Tools That Can Help You Find Winning Cannabis Plays

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

The fast growing cannabis sector is set to become much more interesting – and lucrative.

Here’s the thing. The industry is raising money by leaps and bounds as cannabis enters the mainstream and is set to become a $150 billion global industry.

And I’m forecasting that we will see far more than the mere handful of marijuana stocks trading on major U.S. exchanges in as little as a few months’ time.

After all, pre-IPO funding is moving at a frantic pace. New data by Veridian Capital Advisors shows that private funding in just the first five months of this year has more than doubled to $1.9 billion.

And this is where my background in Silicon Valley’s venture-capital world comes in handy. It gives me a leg up in separating the winners from the losers once the stocks go public.

It’s one of the reasons why over the last several years, I have handed readers of my paid services 192 double or triple digit wins.

With that in mind, today I am going to share with you three venture capitalist (VC) tools that can help you find winning investments. Before everyone else jumps on board…

A Savvy Play on the Red-Hot Software Merger Trend

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

The software sector is about to get a whole lot more profitable.

Here’s the thing. I focus on software firms because so many of them boast very high profit margins.

And in the era of cloud computing, they can upsell products to their clients with very little extra costs – but tons of extra earnings.

But while this is a red-hot trend from which we can profit from years to come, there’s a new dynamic reshaping the whole sector.

Of course, I’m talking about a recent wave of mergers that will mean even more earnings growth for the buyers, not to mention more upside for savvy tech investors.

Consider that two big deals were recently announced just days apart.

In the first, Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq:GOOGL) said it’s buying privately held Looker for $2.6 billion. The second deal calls for Inc. (NYSE:CRM) to buy Tableau Software Inc. (NYSE:DATA) for $15 billion.

Today, I’m going to reveal an investment tailor made to capture the software merger trend. I’ll also give you two more market-beating ideas…
