The terrorism "trend" is moving your money today. When it comes to the proliferation of one of the six primary trillion-dollar trends - War, Terrorism, and Ugliness - there's no ignoring the truth.

how to invest

If you've ever seen the movie "All the President's Men," then you know that maxim of investigative journalism - Follow the money.

The same idea applies to investing, of course, and today we're going to follow the money CEOs plan to spend over the next half-decade - and then use that knowledge make some cash ourselves.

According to a survey I just read, our nation's top executives plan to spend a lot of money on technology that will help them attract, retain, and understand customers.

That may sound, at first, somewhat vague. After all, there is no "retaining customers" tech sector.

But after digging into the survey - doing a little "investigative investing" - I figured out exactly where those CEOs will be spending their dollars in the next five years.

And today I'll show you an investment that takes advantage of these long-term spending trends in a way that beats the market by 40%....

This Play Could Double Again – But There's Much More to It

Stock Market News Today

A big grin lit up my face when I opened my trading screens recently.

I was looking at the chart for Ekso Bionics. The company was trading at right around $1.81 per share at midday on Monday.

That means it was close to a double from where I initially recommended it as our first human augmentation target to members of my Total Wealth research service.

Ekso is still a great buy, which is why I'm recommending it for Money Morning, too. There's plenty of room for this company to double - again.

But... What really got me smiling on that day was the juicy opportunity to use my absolute favorite trading tactic...
