Here's why we're so bullish on these tech plays.
How your Grandchildren can Reap Profits with These Nuclear Stocks
Three Mile Island. Chernobyl. Sellafield. Fukushima.
These are just the most famous names from an alarmingly long list of civilian nuclear incidents. Each of these accidents resulted sparked intense public debate on the future of civilian nuclear power.
Is it really safe? What do we do with the waste? It'll be toxic for tens of thousands of years? How bad will the next accident be? What kind of trade-off are we making? These are just some of the questions mooted in the wake of these and other nuclear accidents.
Why Investors Are Wrapped Up in Amazing Spider Silk Technology
Prepare to be amazed in that special way that only remarkable science can amaze you.
Remember the first time you saw liquid nitrogen in person, or watched a butterfly emerge from its cocoon? THAT kind of amazed.
Now let's talk spider silk.
Japan-based startup Spiber Inc. says it has found a way to make and use artificial spider silk.
Why is that a big deal?
To fully understand, you have to be aware of the astonishing qualities of spider silk.
Stocks to Buy: Three Solid Tech Picks for Under $5 a Share
When considering stocks to buy, sometimes cheaper (and smaller) is better.
Most retail investors are better off taking a pass on those splashy household names and looking for stocks to buy that go for more modest prices – stocks that trade for less than five bucks a share.
Stocks trading for $5 or less often are considered riskier, but offer more upside than their bigger, pricier brethren.
That's because stocks of small companies are less liquid and more volatile relative to the rest of the market. Typically, their prices tend to be move in bigger chunks, making for bigger gains (or losses).
Simply put, these stocks can provide more bang for your buck.

Sony and Microsoft Fall Flat at E3, Opening the Door for Indie Game Competitors
Today marks the close of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, a mammoth annual conference in which the world's best and brightest tech companies show off the latest in video game technology.
Giant #3 Nintendo Co. Ltd. (NYSE ADR: NTDOY) opted to sit this one out, having just released its newest console, the Wii U, late last year.
I've been using my *ahem* embarrassingly extensive nerd powers to troll forums and get an idea of how Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PS4 stack up in the eyes of the gaming community.
The Ultimate Tech Stock "Treasure Map"
On Saturday, I introduced you to the "stealth small-cap" – aging-and-slow big-cap tech firms that were rediscovering the fast growth of their small-cap roots … thanks to the newly emergent Cloud Computing trend.
Judging from the comments and correspondence I received, a lot of you were really intrigued by that concept – and by the huge opportunity for profits that the cloud was creating for investors.
In fact, Strategic Tech Investor subscriber Dionisios S. was so intrigued by that column that he asked me to identify some other "stealth-small-cap" profit plays.
What a great question.
Why Google Glass Is a Terrifying Dud
You never really know what you might get into sitting on the corner stool of a bar in Manhattan.
Last week, I came across a man with a strange little contraption spanning his face at a nearby table. It turns out he was wearing a Google Glass prototype. It was 1 of the 150 prototypes that have been released on the East Coast.
With all of the hype surrounding it, I just had to try it and he gladly gave me a ten-minute lesson. And after a just few minutes with this contraption, I could only reach one conclusion: Google Glass is total dud.
How to Really Make a Fortune on the "Mobile Wave"
If you've been riding along with me for any length of time, you know I get really revved up whenever I talk about the "Mobile Wave" in technology.
The truth is, I can't help it: I look at the forecasts, calculate all the money that can be made, and end up feeling as jazzed as can be about the windfall profits we can reap from this transformational trend.
And I'm not the only one who's feeling this technology-fueled ebullience: The folks over at Amazon.com are clearly experiencing the same adrenalin-driven affliction.
Amazon, you see, is coming out with its own smartphone.
And not just any smartphone. Amazon's entry into smartphone derby is going to be one cool mobile device – highlighted by a 3D screen that will display photos so realistically that you'll want to just reach out and touch them.
Why in the world, you might ask, is an "e-tailer" entering the wireless-phone business?
Just look at the numbers.
Why This Stock (and Sector) Will Trounce All Others
Forget gold, forget oil, and forget the S&P 500.
If you want to make big money in the market today you have to look to biotech.
In fact, if you ignore this field, you're going to miss some of the market's biggest stock gains.
That's because what happened earlier this week is going to become the norm.
On Monday, of the top 25 Nasdaq advancing stocks, 12 were straight-up biotech plays and another was a small-cap healthcare concern.
Their one-day gains ranged from 8% to 47%. Not bad for a day's trade.
