The last time Shah Gilani recommended Microsoft to Private Briefing readers as a "New Buy," I asked him if he had a Windows-powered crystal ball - or a listening device planted in the software firm's Redmond, Wash., headquarters.
Wearable technology is getting a turbo boost from silver.
You see, sports and technology companies have already developed wristbands, shoe inserts, and smartphone apps that can track your heart rate, distance covered, and several other data points.
When word got out Friday that Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) was in talks to buy fellow chipmaker Altera Corp. (Nasdaq: ALTR), Intel stock rose 6.4%.
That tells you how much this deal would benefit Intel. Usually the prospect of a large acquisition causes a company's stock to drop.
But buying Altera will fuel Intel's already thriving data center business - the company's best answer yet to its failure in the mobile market.
More than a third of Americans have nothing at all saved for retirement. Fortunately, the tech sector provides the kind of returns Americans need to reach their retirement goals.
One of the best ways to build wealth with tech stocks is to focus on those with the potential to double.
We've got an outlook on tech stocks and a comprehensive outline on risk-management every investor should follow.
Plus, we've highlighted a half-dozen picks that will most certainly start you on your road to wealth.
Although I speak with Money Morning technology guru Michael Robinson almost every day - and share his comments and recommendations with you on a regular basis - it has been some time since we actually engaged in a full-fledged question-and-answer session for your benefit.
Today I'll share that Q&A with you.
In it, Michael - editor of our Nova-X Report and Radical Technology Profits advisories - details his outlook for stocks, outlines a risk-management strategy every investor should follow (especially now), and highlights the half-dozen tech stocks that will point you down the path to meaningful wealth.
Michael explains why today's seemingly outrageous valuations can be justified.
The key to tech investing depends on five criteria for identifying the best stock. And we've got one poised to double your money in three years.
This company taps directly in the healthcare industry, which is currently profiting from mergers and a steady stream of new drugs approved by the FDA.
[Editor's Note: Nearly half of American families have no net worth at all, and are about one paycheck away from disaster. Meanwhile, retirement savers have a median nest-egg of just $14,500. And that's precisely why we're sharing Michael's Strategic Tech Investor column with you this weekend. This powerful, easy-to-use method can pull anyone out of dire straits and into a comfortable, protected lifestyle or retirement. Here's Michael...]
If you're like most Americans, you're locked in a nightmarish cycle. You work. You spend. You work some more. You earn enough to cover most of your bills - pretty much. You fear those financial emergencies that show up at the worst time.
When done right, tech investing can be the single best wealth engine ever. For instance, one thousand dollars invested in Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) ten years ago today would now be worth $20,610.
For that reason I was excited to pick up Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World on its Feb. 3 release. I wanted to see what kind of moonshot thinking coauthors Steven Kotler (best-selling author and science journalist) and Dr. Peter H. Diamandis (Chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation) had in store.
To my surprise, the 336-page manifesto - that wasn't explicitly written for tech investors - has more to offer them than any other book due out this year.
I phoned Steven Kotler to talk more about Bold and tech investing in 2015. He talked about how to spot a disruptive technology, his favorite sectors in tech right now, and why two U.S. CEOs are his favorites today...
Last week the Nasdaq Composite Index crossed the 5,000 level for the first time in 15 years.
The bears say this is proof we're living through another tech stocks "bubble" - and that a collapse like the dot-com debacle of 2000 is close at hand.
But the gloom-and-doomers are wrong.
If you’re watching the headlines, you know that the Nasdaq Composite Index – the bellwether for the tech sector – has reached the 5,000 level for the first time in 15 years.
That’s prompting a few so-called “experts” to say tech stocks are in “bubble” territory.
This tech sector pioneer has a virtual reality product guaranteed to excite and enthrall millions. And NASA, even Minecraft, are involved in its creation.
It's not the stuff of science fiction... anymore.
We’re convinced this leading tech stock will double by 2018. And when it does, it will yield triple-digit gains.
Of course, Wall Street doesn’t think so. The Street doesn’t recognize the vital role this stock plays in the mobile revolution. But we do.
Google stock is one of our favorite tech plays. It got even better with the Feb. 23 announcement that Google will purchase the mobile payment company Softcard (formerly known as Isis).
Essentially, the search engine company is buying Softcard's technology to use as Google Wallet.
The purchase also guarantees pre-installment of Google Wallet on all Verizon Communication Inc. (NYSE: VZ), T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE: PCS), and AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) Android phones in the United States starting later this year.
Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) and another market leader are coming together in California to tackle the solar power industry's biggest roadblock.
And half a world away, an entire country has announced a major push to provide 15% of its electricity needs from renewables in just a few short years - starting with solar power.
