As someone who's been in the technology trenches for the past 30 years, I know well that spending a ton of cash on research does not guarantee profits or stock-price appreciation.
What tech companies need are cost-effective research and development budgets - like Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL).
But Apple isn't alone. Here are two other tech companies that have mastered this strategy..
The CYNK Stock Trap: When to Ignore a 24,000% Gain
Sometimes even a 24,000% gain can be a bad thing, especially if it involves a very dicey penny stock.
CYNK Technology Corp. (OTC: CYNK) spiked from $0.10 in mid-June to a Wednesday closing price of $14.71 in less than four weeks. But according to publicly available data, CYNK has never earned any revenue and had lost $1.5 million as of the end of 2013. Oh, and the company has no assets, either.
How could a penny stock like CYNK soar so dramatically, and who might be orchestrating it?That's what everyone wants to know...
Apple Stock Undervalued – Near-Unbreakable iPhone 6 Screen Will Spur Record Sales
Any previous estimates of iPhone 6 sales need to be tossed out.

Apple clearly thinks it has a winner on its hands - it's ordering some 30% more units of the iPhone 6 units than it did the iPhone 5s last year.Here’s what this runaway hit will do for AAPL stock...

Google Stock Stakes Its Future on "Android Everywhere"

(Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) said it was expanding Android to run not just on tablets and smartphones, but also on wearable tech like smartwatches, in-car entertainment systems, and its own Android TV. The software on Google's Chromebook laptops will also be better integrated with Android.

Let's Double Our Money… with a Little Help from the Greatest Analyst Who Never Lived
I've been a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes ever since my Dad introduced me to the fabled detective when I was 10 or 11 and living near Pittsburgh back in the early 1970s.
And two of my favorite stories are The Final Problem and The Adventure of the Empty House.
In The Final Problem, Holmes has finally beaten his nemesis, Prof. James Moriarty, setting the brilliant villain and his gang up for arrest by Scotland Yard.
With the tough work done (and the need to steer clear of the criminals being rounded up by Scotland Yard), Holmes and friend Dr. John Watson head to the Continent for a literal "getaway" vacation. But Moriarty eludes the police dragnet and follows Holmes to Switzerland, cornering him alone on a narrow shelf overlooking Reichenbach Falls...
When Watson arrives later, he finds churned-up earth and a hastily jotted note from Holmes - which Moriarty had "courteously" permitted him to write in advance of the "final discussion of those questions which lie between us."Holmes' fans know about the premature call that happened next, but what isn't obvious is that it can help us make a killing in the markets...
No Dozing: It's Time to Profit from the Rebound in Tech Stocks
Back on February, I explained why I was projecting an exceptionally volatile stretch for tech stocks.
And I even showed you the investment strategy to use to traverse it.

Well, this "new tech wave" we predicted has begun.And now we'll show you exactly how to ride it for maximum profit...

Another Great "Backdoor" Play
There's nothing we like better than discovering a "back" way into the current hot deal.
It's just so gratifying to find that sorta-secret way to bag profits from the IPO or merger that's dominating the headlines and that everyone you work with is so excited to talk about.
We did that for you with the Alibaba Holdings Inc. initial public stock offering (IPO). In our special research report, How to Make a Fast 153% from the Alibaba IPO, we give you three "backdoor" ways to profit from the upcoming stock offering of the China Internet giant.
Today we're coming back with a different "backdoor-profit-play" strategy.

It's also a way to profit from the surprisingly strong tech sector that's emerging right next door... Full StoryRead More...
