SXSW sounds like it's mostly for tech junkies, but it's a treasure trove of profit opportunities for investors. It points to where the money will flow.

We've been recommending these three trends for years, but this was one of the most exciting buy signals we've seen yet. Because we saw the time, energy, and money the brightest tech minds in the world are investing in these sectors...

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.

Here's why today's Nasdaq is nothing like the one of the dot-com era - and why tech stocks will beat the broader market by a wide margin...

Apple Watch Could Be the iPad of 2015

Monday's presentation by Apple boss Tim Cook revealed that the Apple Watch is a less useful, less compelling, and less user friendly version of the iPhone. But people also sniggered at the iPad back in 2010, when it wasn't clear why users would want a device that was less useful than a laptop and had less connectivity than a mobile phone.

Avid fans flocked to the iPad nonetheless, and they'll probably drive demand for the watch - meaning Apple's unusual dual stature as the biggest cap company on the planet and a doyenne of hipsters will remain intact.

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.

Cybersecurity Stocks Just Got Another Huge Buy Signal

U.S. President Barack Obama doubled-down on his fight against cyberterrorism last week - which means he also delivered 2015's second major "buy" signal for cybersecurity stocks.

The first signal was in early February. That's when President Obama requested $14 billion in his 2016 fiscal-year budget for increased cyber defense. Roughly $5.5 billion of that is requested just for the Pentagon.

"In recent breaches, more than 100 million Americans had their personal data compromised, including, in some cases, credit card information," President Obama said.

That's why cybersecurity stocks are on our list of the most profitable opportunities for investors...
