The Best Tech Investment You Can Buy Is… Ford?

To say I love cars is a huge understatement. When I'm not picking stocks or reading history, I'm working on any one of several hot rod restoration or rebuild projects I've got going on at all times.

So naturally I'm familiar with the old gearheads' joke: "Know what 'Ford' stands for? Fixed or Repaired Daily!"

Once upon a time, I might have laughed along with the crowd. But not so much these days.

That's because I know Ford has gone beyond "cleaning up its act" and become an indisputable industry leader in that all important profit-generator: innovation.

In fact, this "car" company is fast becoming virtually indistinguishable from the hottest, most valuable Silicon Valley players.

Its shares are starting to act the part, too – they're up nearly 13% over the past six months alone.

But the company has some new technology hitting the streets soon that could act as a shot of "nitro" to the share price.

This company is innovating right now, with strength, like few others. That makes it a classic tech play.

Research Points to Steady Market Highs, but I'm Not Convinced

The market's strength continued last week, with new all-time highs made in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500.

From a technical perspective, that's significant – but more for what it doesn't prove.

You see, through Wednesday, the Dow had made higher closes on nine straight days for just the seventh time in the last 36 years.

According to Nautilus Investment Research, the six months following each string of nine successive up closes in the Dow showed an average gain of 10.4% – with each of the six showing positive results (the smallest gain was 4.7%).

But here's the problem with that: First, this a very small sample size, so while this represents an interesting trend, it's a mistake to take this as conclusive proof. Second, with the U.S. election season vitriol blazing away, and global economic uncertainty abounding, you should take this quantitative analysis with a grain of salt.

Despite the strength of the post-Brexit "march to new all-time highs," the speed of the rise has slowed considerably, and the pullback we saw in yesterday's trading confirms that.

Here's what to do about it...
