In Tuesday’s Strategic Tech Investor, we showed you how to use mutual funds to get your start in tech investing.
Judging from all the comments and e-mails we received, the column was a big hit. It also attracted some follow-up questions.
The most common question was this one: “How do I buy these funds?“
As I said on Tuesday, I’m a firm believer in the adage that there’s no such thing as a bad question, so I thought I’d follow up with a column that answers that question – and several others – for you folks, too.
Strategic Tech Investor columns that truly help you are my favorite ones to write.
So let’s get started.
After perusing all the displays at the massive Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month, tech-sector pundits began touting ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV) as one of the next big “breakout” technologies for 2014.
This wasn’t a surprise to you.
Back in August, we said that specialty microchip maker Ambarella Inc. (Nasdaq: AMBA) would be a major beneficiary of the UHDTV surge, and predicted the stock could double in just over two years.
It actually took only five months, and we now believe it will double again.
But we also know this isn’t the only company benefitting from the powerful shift toward the new UHDTV standard, and set out to find the “next Ambarella.”
This week, we found it.
The stock we discovered is about to be ignited by two powerful catalysts – the multi-billion-dollar shift to UHDTV and a shrewd strategic shift that’s going to twist open the profit spigot.
It’s a stock we believe could easily double from here.
And today we’re going to show you all that you need to know to pocket every penny of those gains…
If you joined our conversations and acted on my recommendations you could have made a lot of money last year.
In fact, several of the stocks I told you about scored triple-digit gains in just a few months’ time.
But we’re not resting on our laurels.
Today, I want to review some of our biggest winners from some of the biggest tech subsectors of 2013… and show you why these trends will be very significant again this year.
Then, I want to give you a heads up on a new recommendation that I believe could be our biggest winner yet…
Before we get to that exciting new opportunity… I hope you bought these winners I recommended…
When we began this journey together a few months ago we started with a -single powerful concept.
Fifty-seven percent of U.S. workers have less than $25,000 in saving – a reality that sentences those folks to a lifetime of vulnerability and fear.
After reading that, we vowed to help you dodge that bleak fate.
The key, we knew, was the U.S. tech sector.
From the light bulb to the semiconductor to advanced sensors, America’s Silicon Valley has churned out a steady stream of innovations that turned ordinary people into millionaires – sometimes virtually overnight.
So we identified seven powerful high-tech trends. And then we used my years of experience as a Silicon Valley insider to create five immutable rules we could use to identify double-your-money profit opportunities.
As we’ll show you in an upcoming report, our strategy has already generated some impressive gains. And there’s more to come.
The road to wealth, as we like to say, is paved by tech.
And today is the next phase of this journey.
I see still more growth in the New Year, particularly in the global tech sector.
With that in mind, I wanted to talk with you today about my three favorite profit plays for 2014 – recommendations that I believe will pack a punch for your portfolio.
So without additional introduction, let’s get down to business – because we don’t want you to be part of the ill-fated 57%.
And with the Strategic Tech Investor working on your behalf, there’s no need to be …
During an appearance on the Fox Business Channel‘s Varney & Co. on Thursday, host Stuart Varney asked me point blank if I was worried about what’s ahead for tech stocks.
You can certainly understand why he’d ask such a question. The health of the U.S. economy continues to be a real worry for many and the growing political mess we know as Washington can only make matters worse.
Against that troubling backdrop the tech-focused Nasdaq Composite Index is up 31% so far this year and 207% from its financial crisis lows of March 2009 – returns that handily trump the respective 22% and 142% gains of the record-setting Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Whispers of “another tech bubble” and “another dot-bomb implosion” have been getting louder, and the excellent and the always-probing Varney wanted to know if I was worried – or perhaps even bearish.
Let me say to you what I said to the Fox viewers.
If you’re running away from the technology sector right now, you’re making the biggest mistake of your investment career.
And in today’s Strategic Tech Investor, I’m going to show you why…
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.
Today, I’m going out on a limb once again to predict that the tech sector will have a great Christmas overall. And I’ve identified four market leaders who should do well for investors this holiday season.
And in today’s Strategic Tech Investor, we’re going to tell you just who those winners will be …
For the past 20 years, I’ve had regular conversations with one of the nation’s top chemistry experts.
His name is Dr. Robert Fisher and he is a retired chemist who was also a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley for nearly 40 years.
The fact that he’s also my father-in-law shouldn’t dissuade you from hearing about the hellacious profit opportunity he clued me in on over dinner the other night.
It centers around an industry that I myself have been following since the late 1980s when I began writing about the Reagan-era defense buildup.
Gone, of course from that time, is the Soviet Union and the threat of a nuclear holocaust.
But what remains are a whole slew of “Miracle Materials” that scientists were experimenting with to help give the U.S. military a secret edge.
Today, these Miracle Materials touch nearly every aspect of our economy, from smart phones, to electric cars, computers, semi-conductors, consumer electronics and satellite communications.
In fact, they’ve now become so critical to the global economy, they’re ready to unleash a $1 trillion windfall.
And one company stands to benefit tremendously…
It’s a company a lot of people will be familiar with and may even dismiss as boring.
But the truth is, I know about a “special situation” transaction this company is getting ready to engage in… a transaction that could unlock fast returns exceeding 100%… even 200%.
