Why Big Tech Stocks Are "Unwinding" in 2016

tech stocks

Blue-chip tech stocks were some of the biggest growth catalysts for the bull market we exited in January. That was the longest bull market since World War II, which lasted six years.

Now we've entered a bear market. And it's sent the Nasdaq down 17% from its July highs.

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) are already down 11% and 26% this year, respectively.

Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald explains why big tech stocks are forfeiting their gains and how investors should play them long term...

How One Simple Hedge Could Actually Give the Biggest Profits of the 21st Century

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...

Alphabet Inc.'s Q4 2015 earnings surpassed expectations for both revenue and profits. That's great... considering the best is yet to come.

Analysts are having trouble with something Google calls "other bets" and the fact that those investments cost the company a whopping $3.5 billion in losses.

A lot of individual investors, meanwhile, find it hard to imagine GOOGL stock going too much higher, let alone a lot higher.

Both groups are missing something really critical that we talk about all the time...

Super Bowl 50 could rebrand itself as the Silicon Valley Bowl. After all, sports broadcasting serves as a testing ground and showcase for TV and camera technology.
But I'm most excited about a new replay camera system that gives one of the tech investing trends we've long been following a Super Bowl debut.

This technology is now so significant that it's beginning to disrupt the entire TV sector - enough so that UHDTV sets will earn a 50% market share by the end of this decade - making them a $30.4 billion market.

That's a market that promises to be highly profitable - and so we want to grab a piece of it. Here's how we'll do it...

double your money

Despite playing such an indispensable role in the modern economy, the bond market is woefully out of date in how it operates.

In fact, the bond market doesn't even make use of electronic exchanges. That's one reason why that $40 trillion market is ripe for disruption. And where you find disruption... you find opportunities for fast profits.

Today I'm going to introduce you to a high-tech powerhouse that's leading the bond market into the connected, digital age - and I'll show you how to double your money with it...

Automakers are still largely reinventing the wheel when it comes to adding today's most advanced technologies to new vehicles.

An Open Letter to IBM CEO Virginia Rometty

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.
