tech penny stocks
If there's one sector that's primed for explosive growth right now, it's biotechnology.
Its position as a new market leader in the tech sector cannot be overstated. Clearly, investing in biotech is an idea few can afford to ignore.
Genentech, the first biotech company, was formed in 1973 and was the first to go public in 1980, which launched the biotech sector.
Though the sector is only 33 years old, humans have been using varying forms of biotech for thousands of years, before anyone was investing in anything.
Why This Tech Blue Chip is Poised to Double
The world's largest semiconductor firm's stock has become one of high tech's biggest value traps, which isn't a great place to be for stockholders.
But things are changing and tech investors - all investors -- should take heed.
First let's look at what it means to be a value trap.
On the value side, Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) has been and continues to be one of the world's most respected chip firms. And it has the kind of profit margins most hardware companies can only dream about.
Not only that, but last year it invested more than $10 billion in research and development, an amount that was seven times that of second-place spender Qualcomm Inc. (NasdaqGS: QCOM).
Intel's very existence is a testament to high tech's exponential growth. After all, it was an Intel co-founder who came up with Moore's Law, which basically says computing power doubles about every two years.
This is an outfit with a long list of technical firsts that is leading the charge into nanoscale and 3D semiconductors. The transistor gates inside its new Ivy Bridge chips measure a mere 22nm long. At that size you could fit 4,000 of them across the width of a human hair.
Here's the trap...
The big-cap leader's legacy and technical chops haven't translated into stock profits.
Over the past five years, not counting its 3.9% dividend, the stock has returned a scant 9%, almost exactly half that of the S&P 500.
So, you have a great company that's still a solid industry player that can't seem to get out of its own way when trying to unlock that value.
But this sleeping giant is about to awaken -- and double the value of its stock.
This Quantum Leap Will "Redefine" Tech by the End of the Year
It promises to spot terrorists - before they strike.
It will predict killer storms - warning us when and where they'll hit.
This new technology trend known as "Big Data" is sweeping the globe. It's expected to facilitate stunning - even life-saving - transformations in intelligence-gathering, meteorology, medicine, finance, and virtually every other field you can think of.
But only if a major problem can be solved.
That problem - a critical obstacle, really - is one that keeps getting in the way. It's called the "memory wall" and it's the one digital barricade that every computer engineer in the world wants to hurdle.
Today I'm going to give you a peek at the potential solution to this digital bottleneck - a solution so revolutionary that a respected trade journal recently named it one of the 10 technologies most likely to transform the electronics industry.
I'm going to introduce you to the "Killer Elite" that cracked this computing conundrum.
And I'm going to tell you how you can profit from an innovative breakthrough that most retail investors aren't even aware of yet.
2013 Tech Stock Forecast: The "Buzz-Worthy" Stocks The Market Will Love Next Year
The best way to score tech stock gains in 2013 is simple: tap into the areas where there is "constant buzz."
But before we get to the three areas that are the most buzz-worthy, let's start by clearing up one big myth. There really is no such thing as one tech industry.
High-tech now sweeps throughout the entire economy. We're talking everything from robot welders, to laser surgery, to hum-drum database management.
So, even if the economy remains flat or declines, there will still be buzz-driven tech stock winners, companies involved in fields that are so vital that customers simply must have their products.
That's why I tell investors to look for huge global trends that will continue no matter what happens with the fiscal cliff or the Eurozone debt crisis.
Ditto for the expected battles over Obamacare this year. Two years after its passage, we still don't know exactly how many states will set up the exchanges needed to put the law into practice.
Either way, it doesn't really matter...
There's so much going on in high tech that some specific tech stocks are bound to yield big gains in 2013.
I've narrowed it all down to three vital areas that should power through next year-- no matter what the economy or the politicians throw at them.
It starts with the biggest of them all, the mobile wave...

- Tech Stocks Go On Sale – Is Shah Buying?
2 Tech Stocks for the Next 10 Years…and Neither One is Apple
During the great Dotcom days, analysts were fond of saying that "growth is the new income." Back then, tech stocks were all the rage.
Some even went as far to say that if a tech stock didn't have a triple digit price/earnings ratio, it wasn't worth buying. There were even 70 year-olds at the time who bragged about the optical networking stocks they owned - but couldn't program the clock on their VCRs.
That didn't end so well....did it?
But it's been a long time since the Dotcom crash. Twelve years later, tech stocks are stronger than ever.
The trick is to find good companies with good ideas that can translate their core competencies into niches that complement each other.
That way, when one niche falters, the others pick up the slack.
Alternatively, winning tech stocks need to dominate their sector with quality goods, innovative leadership and a dynamic corporate structure. They also have to have proprietary technologies that can keep pace with a rapidly changing marketplace.
If you rest on your laurels these days, it can mean ruination, no matter what size company you are or how much market share you own.
If you doubt that, consider this....
