Deck the Halls With These Four Tech Stocks

10 | By Michael A. Robinson

We know the drill: U.S. retailers count on the holiday shopping season for as much as 20% to 40% of their total sales for the year.

And we know that this year won’t be any different.

What we don’t know is how much American consumers are going to spend: Will this season go like gangbusters, or will it just be a bust?

The National Retail Federation (NRF) is expecting a gangbusters holiday season, having just forecasted a record $602 billion in sales, a healthy 3.9% jump from 2012.

But the respected Gallup polling group is expecting a bust, saying that U.S. consumers expect to spend an average $704 each, or about 10% less than during the Christmas season a year ago.

Investors often handicap the major retailers, trying to guess which one will get the biggest share of the holiday shopping bucks.

We’re not going to waste our time with that futile exercise.

You see, we know that the holiday season is also a big time of the year for gadget sales: American consumers are only too happy to drop small fortunes on computers, smartphones and the other consumer-electronic gadgets that are the tangible results of this country’s dominant high-tech sector.

We can predict who those winners will be, and can identify the stocks we believe will zoom as a result.

The sci-fi flick “Gravity” is tearing it up at the box office.

The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, tells the tale of a “routine” space shuttle mission gone wrong, grossed $55.8 million for its weekend release earlier this month. Reviews have been stellar. Oscar talk has already started.

Audiences are saying that the amazing special effects – known as “F/X” in the movie biz – are a key reason they dig this film so much.

And critics are saying it’s the amazing digital sound effects that make the movie seem so realistic and that could lead to an Academy Award nomination for “Gravity’s” audio quality.

But here’s what I want to tell you – and it’s something that moviegoers and critics know nothing about.

There’s a great way for tech investors to cash in on this revolutionary audio technology. It’s a company I know very well.

In fact, it’s a stock that could easily double your money.
