Since the 1990s, three Internet-based sectors have emerged as tech investing cash cows. And this quintet of firms will dominate these segments into 2016 beyond...

The Internet has come a long way since the 1990s. Since that time, three web-based sectors in particular have become tech investing cash cows.

The e-commerce, mobile advertising, and cloud computing are worth a combine $2.6 trillion, and a quintet of firms are rising to dominate these segments.

Today we'll discuss the first two players on this team - and why each is a great foundational play for 2016 and beyond...

Since the last bona fide financial bubble, the real estate and credit bubble of 2007 to 2009, it seems like every time anyone pays a few pennies too much for a stock, there is a flock of analysts ready to start crowing "bubble!" like so many birds on a wire.

Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Earnings "All But Irrelevant" Despite Analyst Noise

EKSO stock

"Contrary to what the rest of the world believes, Google earnings are all but irrelevant except in the very short term."

Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald knows Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) well. He has followed the tech giant since its founding in 1998. Just last week, Fitz-Gerald notched a successful prediction he'd made years ago when the EU filed antitrust charges against Google on April 15.

Instead, he recommends investors take action with this Google stock play instead of tuning into the earnings noise...
