The Steps to Take (Right Now) to Profit from Tech in 2019

1 | By Michael A. Robinson

The first item on my agenda today is to wish you a happy and healthy New Year!

I hope you’re looking forward to the year ahead like I am, because I expect we’ll see plenty of exciting tech investing opportunities, despite the choppy market conditions toward the end of 2018.

For many, the end of the year marks a great time to make resolutions that improve our lives. So with that in mind, I’d like you to consider creating your own Investment Action Plan for 2019.

It’s something my wife and I have done for more than a decade now, and it’s proved valuable as a way to update and clarify our investment priorities, which can get lost in the shuffle during the busy year.

See, each New Year’s Eve, my wife and I sit down, prepare ourselves for a “financial reset,” and spend some quality time together discussing our accomplishments over the prior year. We savor our investment successes – and reflect on the failures that taught us valuable lessons.

Before we wrap up the proceedings and head out to a nice dinner, we set up a new action plan that we’ll review again come this time next year.

What started out as our fun little ritual has turned into a positive financial habit – the sort that can help you attain your financial goals no matter what the market throws your way.

And it’s why today I’m going to show you how to set up your own Investment Action Plan for 2019.

It could even make you rich.

That’s why we’re here, after all

This Aerospace Breakup Delivers a 3-for-the-Price-of-1 Late Christmas Present

3 | By Michael A. Robinson

This holiday season, you might want to check for one more Christmas present under the tree.

And it comes in the form of a spin-off. Let me explain.

United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) completed a $23 billion merger with Rockwell Collins Inc. on Nov. 26.

Normally, the story of a sprawling conglomerate acquiring an aerospace contractor would pretty much end there.

That’s because the idea behind these kinds of bolt-on buyouts is to create new synergies that make the bigger, newer firm more competitive and more profitable.

Of course, United Technologies wants to take advantage of the Trump administration’s defense buildup, one of the biggest we’ve seen since the Reagan era.

But in this case, the merger served as a catalyst for a much bigger change.

The same day United Technologies closed the books on the deal, it announced a broad realignment that surprised Wall Street.

Following the Rockwell acquisition, United Technologies said it would break itself up into three standalone companies.

That’s great news for investors because studies have shown that these kinds of spin-offs usually lead to market-beating gains.

Just the sort of late Christmas gift investors can enjoy.

That’s why today, while you enjoy the company of family and friends, I’m going to show you how to get in on the action.

Before it’s too late
