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…
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…
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 Salesforce.com 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…
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%…
