Google Stock Gets Another "Buy" Sign with this New Deal

mobile wallet

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.

Here's the scoop on the impending solar power boom...

This "Eureka Moment" Tech Investment Is Taking a Page from Apple's Playbook

tech investment

About two weeks ago, my local alarm company came out to upgrade my backup cellular transmitter. I got a package deal that also included installation of the advanced touch-screen control panel.

As a gadget and security geek, that touch-screen blew me away. It includes a mobile app for remote monitoring, and it seamlessly integrates with the system's digital surveillance video.

I ended up ordering three more motion-sensitive, full-color surveillance cameras. Plus, I ordered a second control panel.

And then I had a "eureka" moment...

Tim Cook: If "Sitting Is the New Cancer," the Apple Watch Is the Cure

Apple stock

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook played diagnostician Feb. 10 at the 2015 Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco.

He voiced doctors' concerns that the average person lives too sedentary a lifestyle nowadays. That's why he is so amped about the soon-to-be-released Apple Watch (set for debut sometime early this year). "I use Apple Watch constantly in the gym to track my exercise. If I sit for too long, it will actually tap me on the wrist to remind me to get up and remove, because a lot of doctors think sitting is the new cancer."

The Apple Watch proves Cook has picked up on one of the most profitable trends in 2015: wearable tech.

We'll show you exactly why this soon-to-be $19 billion market is a great opportunity for AAPL stock - and how investors can ride 2015's wearable tech craze to their advantage...

How to Profit from Elon Musk's "Space Internet"

Elon Musk

More than 3 billion people on Earth still have no or poor access to the Internet. Elon Musk wants to build a network of hundreds of low-orbiting satellites that will deliver high-speed, low-cost Internet to the most remote places on Earth.

But he won't be building this "Space Internet" alone. One tech company is already helping him make his dream a reality.

Here's the company poised to reap big gains by helping Musk...

AMZN Earnings: The Crucial Number Not to Forget

AMZN earnings

Impressive sales but inconsistent profits have been the story of AMZN earnings the last few years.

Today's (Thursday) Q4 report is no different...

Amazon.com Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AMZN) sales increased 15% compared to last quarter, but profit dropped again from the same period a year ago - just not as much as expected.

Here's the key to Amazon's lack of net income - and how investors can play AMZN stock right now...

How to Invest in the Next Alibaba – Before Its IPO

how to invest

The Alibaba IPO remained the world's top business story for months on end because of the immense amount of wealth it drew in and then created.

This was an early-stages opportunity in a tremendously high-growth business - e-commerce - in China, the world's fastest-growing large economy.

Now, imagine you'd known how to invest in Alibaba before that IPO.

Today, I'm bringing you just that sort of opportunity.

With China slowing down, India and its 1.25 billion people are poised to become the world's fastest-growing big economy.

And that's why I was thrilled to discover the "secret" play that insiders are using to invest in the "Alibaba of India" years before its IPO.

Let me share it with you...

IBM Stock Is Taking Yet Another Hit

IBM stock

In late October, I warned investors to avoid IBM stock. 

At that time, the stock was trading around $162 per share. Today it is trading at a shade under $158 per share, and could be heading much lower.  

"Big Blue's" transition, or perhaps we can call it "turnaround," is at best stalling, and at worst, setting investors up for more disappointment as evidenced by its fourth-quarter (2014) earnings report. 

In fact, let's cut to the chase right away: IBM's just reported fourth-quarter earnings laid another egg. 

It's simply not going well for IBM, and here is how we need to play IBM stock today...

Money Morning's Defense and Tech Specialist Michael Robinson just told readers about one of the best tech stocks to buy now - and it's actually the second time he's recommending the stock. That's how good the potential is.

Today, the stock opened at $36.56. That's a 53% gain in just 18 months.

Legal "Steroids" Are Making This Tech Company a Buy

With high-tech corporations, there's always a group of young startups with hot innovations breathing down the Old Guard's necks.

There are chances for late-career renaissances, though. I've uncovered four aging Silicon Valley legends that have found the business equivalent of a (legal) performance-enhancing drug in a certain fast-moving part of the tech sector.

And one tech company in particular has rediscovered its ace-like prowess - and is making investors hefty gains in the process...

This Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) Strategic Move Is Paying Off Big

Nasdaq: INTC

More and more of today's chipmakers, including Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), are locating their manufacturing facilities off the beaten path these days - in one of the world's fastest-growing economies... and a nation you may find controversial.

But my job is to take you wherever the biggest innovations are being made so we can find the best opportunities.

Here's where so many of the world's top tech companies are headed - and why the move is paying off big...

When a Tech Trend Shifts Like This, You Can Get Rich

tech trend

A new tech trend surfaced the other night at the Golden Globes. Its presence marks the beginning of a distinct shift. Billions of dollars are already going into it.

This tech trend is going to be one of the biggest opportunities of the next 5 to 10 years.

Sadly, though, investors will likely miss this opportunity because they're going to make one of these two major mistakes...
