Cybersecurity Stocks: The 100% Gain That's Yours For the Taking

If you read the Money Morning special report Five Ways to Profit from Cybersecurity Stocks back on Sept. 26 – and followed our recommendations – you've fared pretty well.

But if you were also a Private Briefing charter subscriber, and invested in the one cybersecurity stock that we held back for that premium service … well, you've enjoyed a fabulous return – and in less than three weeks.

Take a look for yourself. We recommended five stocks in Money Morning, but held the one stock back for Private Briefing.
This is how those stocks have performed from the day we finished the report through to the market close on Wednesday:

  • Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC), up 7%.
  • Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), up 6%.
  • Sourcefire Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), breakeven.
  • SAIC Inc. (NYSE: SAI), up 6%.
  • ManTech International Corp. (Nasdaq: MANT), up 14%.
  • The Private Briefing Cybersecurity Stock (Company Name Withheld), up 23%.

That's right: Private Briefingsubscribers have reaped a profit of as much as 23%.

But don't feel too bad if you missed this hefty little pop … for there's more to come.

Lots more.

In fact, for this stock to hit the price target that Wall Street analysts have established, it will have to zoom another 109% from where it's trading at now.

And that's not a pipe dream.

You see, data theft is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today.

Businesses worldwide lose a staggering $221 billion a year due to data theft. Americans are affected to the tune of $54 billion.

That makes cybersecurity one of the biggest investment trends of the decade to come.

Global spending on network and data-security technology will rise from about $6 billion last year to more than $10 billion by 2016, according to a market-outlook report by technology-forecaster ABI Research.

This is one train you don't want to miss.

All you have to do is subscribe to Private Briefing. It's only $5 a month.

Once you sign up, just pull up the Sept. 27 research report titled "Making Crime Pay … For You." That report will tell you all you need to know about this intriguing profit play.

But don't procrastinate. Because this is one stock – and one trading service – that will pay you … instead of the other way around.
