The "Gold" of Tech Investing Could Become Your Best Portfolio Insurance

bitcoin market

Millions of investors dedicate a portion of their portfolio to gold or some other precious metal as a hedge - as "insurance" - against trouble in other markets.

At its base, this is a sound strategy, because precious metals generally aren't affected by the ups and downs of the stock market.

This isn't a "gold service," however. Our interest is in tech investing. So let's spend today investigating what I think of as "the gold of tech."

Not only can you use this investment as a hedge, but financial players are beginning to eye the technology behind it as way to disrupt the $500 billion payments industry.

If that upheaval in payments transpires, this "safety" play could soar triple digits or more in the coming years...

One, in particular, was exceptionally blunt: Have we backed the wrong horse?

1 11 16 STI-1

Whenever a CEO takes the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we investors expect them to reveal something meaningful... innovative... in a word - big.

But after IBM Corp. CEO Virginia Rometty's keynote speech, I was left unimpressed - and so was Wall Street. Last week, shares of IBM fell to five-year lows, off nearly 19% over last six months.

This sudden drop is only the latest bad news for the once-mighty IBM. And it's just one reason why I've penned a letter to Rometty and offered her a custom-made action plan.

If she listens, my plan will rescue IBM by making it the undisputed leader in one of the fastest-growing sectors of the market.
