Why This Payments Leader Is Crushing the Market by 1,000%

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

It isn’t every day that Wall Street fails so publicly.

And no, I’m not talking about a big investment firm or commercial bank going under.

Here’s the thing. You and I have been talking about financial technology for several years now. I like to think you have a real inside edge here.

This is a field I literally got involved with in the late 1980s, and have managed to get a piece of every new wave of innovation. Then again, it’s well worth it – global payments total some $100 trillion.

So, for J.P. Morgan Chase &Co. (NYSE:JPM) to tell clients it was shutting down a new app for young people, the offering, called Finn, must have been a train wreck.

Young people are some of the most coveted consumers on Earth because you can keep them for decades. For its part, JP Morgan has built a good digital franchise.

But its future now rides heavily on traditional banking… and physical branches, which most young people hate.

That’s why today, I am going to tell you about a terrific fintech leader that is crushing the broad market by 1,000%…

See, on June 25th, the renowned investor and world famous “Shark” Robert Herjavec is coming to Money Morning to unveil a radical new way to achieve the American Dream.

Working hard and living within your means are admirable lifestyle choices, for sure. But the millionaire next door is going to look a lot different now.

That’s because, from here on out, all you’ll really need is access to a small group of smart, dedicated, and industrious people who do all the heavy lifting on your behalf.

Oddly enough, they’re incredibly willing to do it. In fact, when it comes to you getting rich, these people are wildly enthusiastic about it, as you’ll see in this first-of-its-kind online event.

How to Get in on the Rapid Consolidation of This $58.5 Billion Chip Sector

4 | By Michael A. Robinson

My wife thinks my car has magic.

She just loves how when we approach the car when I’m carrying my keys, LED lights inside the side view mirrors automatically turn on.

Not only that, but the moment I touch the car-door handle, the side view mirrors automatically deploy from their tucked-in sleeping position. The headlights also come alive.

Trust me when I say this… that feature is a godsend at night during California’s rainy season, which was historic this winter.

I’m tempted to say that my state-of-the-art 2019 Acura MDX Hybrid has all the proverbial “bells and whistles.”

But that’s not quite accurate. Simply stated, it is brimming with advanced sensors and chips that lie at the heart of the modern auto market.

Here’s the thing. Putting these devices into today’s cars is so vital a trend that it recently led to the $9.4 billion buyout of Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq:CY) by Infineon Technologies AG (OTC:IFNNY).

That’s why today, I want to show you a great way to play this red-hot tech trend with a market-beating investment you can count on for the long haul…

How This Global Giant Is Using Blockchain to Disrupt a $5.4 Billion Aerospace Sector

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

If you’ve followed along with me for any length of time, then you know I’m not afraid to make bold calls.

And not to toot my own horn – well maybe just a tad – they are very often on the money.

Back in 2013, I was the first analyst to predict that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL) would hit $1,000 on a split adjusted basis.

And in the summer of 2014, I forecast that Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT) would become a great company under then new-CEO Satya Nadella.

Both those predictions were dead accurate.

Today, I want to remind you of a call I made more recently.

Last Dec. 14, I told you in no uncertain terms that the blockchain technology underlying crypto currencies would become an unstoppable global force.

Right on schedule, I have a new proof point. It’s a global giant that is using blockchain tech to disrupt a $5.4 billion segment of the aerospace sector.

This is a firm that’s beating the market by more than 30%. And it’s got a whole lot of upside ahead…

What You Should Expect from Tesla Going Forward

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

When we spoke back on Jan 8, I told you to avoid investing in Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq:TSLA) at all costs.

At the time, I was concerned that Wall Street’s hype machine would try to convince investors of a turnaround ahead at the electric-car leader.

You may recall that the market had just turned the corner and was heading into a nice rebound.

That’s exactly the kind of environment those sharpies on the Street like to see when they try to sell you stocks that are dogs.

Make no mistake. Tesla has been nothing short of a disastrous stock this year – skidding by more than 43% as I write this note to you.

By contrast, the S&P 500 is up nearly 12% even after recent decline on fears of a growing trade dispute with China. The tech-centric Nasdaq is up by 14.6% over the period.

No, I’m not predicting that Tesla will go under. But today I want to show you why this is still one of my top stocks to avoid…

A “Hidden” Way into Tech’s $126 Billion Worth of Stock Buybacks This Quarter

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

It’s time for me to update the mantra I have used here for many years.

No, I haven’t backed off my belief that the road to wealth is paved with tech.

Just the opposite in fact. What’s really going on these days is that the road to wealth is becoming a super highway.

Let me explain. As I have noted many times in our twice-weekly chats, U.S. tech firms generate enormous amounts of cash.

That’s one of the reasons why the top four American tech firms have combined market caps of $3.6 trillion, or roughly the size of Canada’s and Brazil’s economies combined.

Indeed, their profit margins are so huge they simply can’t invest it all in the next round of innovation.

And it explains why tech firms are the leaders in the one of market’s more important new dynamics – share buybacks.

Don’t underestimate the importance of this red-hot new trend. Just in the first quarter, we’re talking at least $126 billion of tech share purchases.

Today, I’m going to reveal a great way to play this trend. And it’s with an investment that has beaten the broad market by 161%…

Five Reasons This Fintech Leader Overseeing $7 Trillion in Payments Is Set for Takeoff

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

You’d have a hard time finding a bigger crypto currency bull than me.

After all, I was one of the very first tech analysts to suggest buying Bitcoin (BTC). I first began telling investors of the bright future for this digital money in the summer of 2013.

Back then, Bitcoin was trading for under $100. It went on to hit nearly $20,000 before sharply reversing. It has since rebounded to roughly $8,700.

And on May 17, I suggested that you invest in another leading crypto, Ethereum (ETH). It boasts the crypto world’s second-largest market cap at $20.5 billion, and is a great play on the emerging world of smart contracts.

So, you might be wondering why today I’m telling you about a fintech leader that is largely avoiding cryptos and their backend technology.

Here’s the thing. The company I’ll reveal today is already involved in $7 trillion worth of transactions and shows no signs of slowing down.

That’s why I want to give you five reasons while this global giant will pile up market-crushing gains…

The Three Tools You Need to Soar Through Trade Tensions

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Wall Street is finally catching up to me.

And I have to say, it feels great.

See, since late last year, I’ve been one of the few analysts out there saying there is no need to fear a recession this year.

After all, the economy is in overall great shape.

Unfortunately, the recent escalation of trade tensions between the U.S. and China has many investors on edge.

We’ve seen stocks declining broadly on profit taking after a huge run up for the S&P 500, which gained 17.5% this year through May 3.

But a headline last week in the Wall Street Journal says it all – “Despite Markets’ Jitters Over Trade, Signs of Longer-Term Fear Are Few.”

I couldn’t agree more. Fact is, this remains one of the all-time best periods to be invested in market-crushing tech leaders.

What many investors need right now is to take the long view and use the right tools to manage your portfolio.

With that in mind, today I want to show you my three Trade Tension Tools

The Surprising Way to Play An Historic AI Merger

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. (NYSE:HPE) stunned Wall Street on May 17 with important merger news.

That’s when the company announced it was joining forces with another historic computing firm.

See, HPE is a spinoff of the storied Hewlett Packard, one of Silicon Valley’s early computing pioneers. It said last Friday it is buying supercomputing legend Cray for about $1.4 billion.

Here’s the thing. HPE is making the move because it wants greater access to a lucrative tech platform we’ve been talking about for some time now – artificial intelligence (AI).

The timing is great. IDC says worldwide spending on AI systems will jump 44% this year to $35.8 billion.

And this ranks as a twofer. Cray remains a supercomputing powerhouse. It has won a string of government contracts over the years, which will give HPE a stable sales base.

Cray just scored a $600 million Department of Energy contract to build what is expected to be the world’s fastest supercomputer.

Let’s not forget that supercomputers play a critical role in AI, which requires massive processing power.

And today, I’m going to tell you of a hidden way to play this exciting AI merger.

What’s Next for the Cyber-Leader with a $2.53 Billion Backlog

0 | By Michael A. Robinson

Here’s a fact that could make your blood pressure spike.

Hospitals are becoming big targets for cybercrimes – they’re up 2,860% in a decade.

But these breaches don’t get much notice from the media or Wall Street.

Instead, we always hear a lot when there is a big company involved. Just think back to the September 2017 hack at Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX).

In a very high-profile case, we learned that as many as 147 million accounts with financial information were compromised by a hack into the servers at the leading credit-reporting agency.

While they don’t have a lot financial data on hand, hospitals do maintain details about virtually every aspect of your health.

Even worse, a major intrusion can lead to healthcare interruptions, even with surgeries.

Indeed, analysts note that the WannaCry and NotPetya intrusions two years ago had that exact effect, though they don’t provide data on the number of cancelled operations.

What savvy tech investors need to do in a case like this is identify a best-of breed cyber firm with lots of upside ahead.

And that’s just what I am going to show you today…
