The Six Questions that Can Make You Rich (Part Two)
For some reason, we love the concept of technology, but hate the tech that surrounds us.
We curse our email when it freezes for the slightest second. We damn the cellphone carrier that sends a signal to space and halfway around the earth when we're talking with someone thousands of miles away, but the drops the call.

Best Investments 2013: Beat Bernanke by Embracing the Free Market
For the last four years, ordinary Americans have struggled to rebuild their wealth in the wake of the Great Financial Crisis.
Last week, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis reported that the average U.S. household has recovered only 45% of its wealth lost during the recession.
Of course, the Federal Reserve won't acknowledge that its Chairman, Ben Bernanke, has been a principle driver in the underperformance of the middle class' return to financial normalcy. Bernanke has removed incentives for anyone to keep their dollars in a savings account by knocking interest rates to near-record lows.
Meanwhile, nearly 50% of Americans do not own any stocks or bonds. Given recent memories of their wealth evaporating, it's been difficult to instill much confidence for those who lost so much.
Low rates and lost confidence in the markets have left more Americans vulnerable to inflation, accelerating costs of staples, and uncertainty about their financial future.
But there is good news.Read More...

How to Invest in Sports Teams – and Profit
Professional sports are big business, to put it mildly. A top franchise, no matter the sport or market, can be worth billions of dollars.
More and more, sports organizations are beginning to offer shares to investors on the open market, but if you're to profit, you need to be armed with the right knowledge about how to invest in sports teams.
Sponsorships, ticket sales, broadcasting rights, and even tax breaks all contribute to the value of a team.
Most of these sports teams are held privately, in families or small combines. But there are ways you can figure out how to invest in sports teams, going from fan to financier by picking up shares of these organizations - but perhaps not in the ways you'd think.Read More...
How to Invest in The Two Hottest Tech Trends I've Ever Seen
Last week, I told you the "Mobile Wave" was one of the biggest profit opportunities that I'm following for you.
I even shared a potential "double-your-money" profit play that the "experts" seem to have missed.
But as good as the "Mobile Wave" story might sound, it's not the only hot sector that can substantially bolster your net worth.
Today I'm going to tell you about two other high-tech trends that I'm following - and each one represents the double-your-money profit opportunities that I'm always hunting for.
And I'll give you a stock to watch with each one ...
How to Invest in the Top Tech Trends
The trends that I'm talking about are "Big Data" and "Cloud Computing" and each is an example of the "unstoppable trends" that I search out in my Five Rules of High-Tech Wealth that I've been talking to you about over the last few weeks.
Let's look at each of these two powerful developments.
And we'll start with Big Data, a term that refers to technologies that make massive data sets - once inaccessible - available for analysis and use in decision-making.
According to a recent study by IBM, we now create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day.
But it's what we do with all that data that truly matters.Read More...
