This "Defense" Stock Is Seriously Outgunning the Market
As a longtime tech analyst and investor, I've learned that tracking unstoppable trends is a great way to make money.
For instance, the mobile wave is moving so fast it's turning small-cap companies into financial juggernauts, seemingly overnight.
The same thing is happening with cloud computing. Simply put, there's a stampede of firms that want to host their data and applications on the web – and are willing to pay top dollar for those services.
But, strictly speaking, not every big-gain opportunity is a true high-tech trend.
That's why I always keep a sharp eye out for new investing opportunities that are in related areas.
The mid-cap company I'm recommending today, for example, is a leader in what I call personal defense technology.And it's about to "outgun" the market - big time...

Your "Uncle" Is the World's Smartest Trader
It's interesting that an investor in the "communist" Peoples' Republic of China can make millions tax-free… while investors in the United States – the supposed bastion of free enterprise and capitalism – have to pay, in some cases, a near-50% tax on investment gains.
If trading and investing is all about weighing risk and reward, then the tax code itself makes Uncle Sam the ultimate trader. He gets a nice chunk of your reward, even as he avoids your risk.
Now, I don't mind having Uncle Sam as a silent partner, but like any good partner, he should stick around to help shoulder losses during bad times as well as participate in the good times.Unfortunately, this isn't what happens...
