From the Editor: Michael A. Robinson's research always gives our readers a chance to make a lot of money. Santarus, Inc. is up 125% in less than a year. LIN TV Corp. climbed 102% in just three months. And the company he's recommending later today is expected to grow even faster (and much bigger). So before the details hit your inbox, here's Michael's secret… and why he does all of this in the first place.
One disturbing statistic says it all…
It appeared on Page 1 of The Wall Street Journal back on March 19, less than 24 hours away from the first day of spring, the season of hope…
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of U.S. workers have less than $25,000 in savings.
It's a troubling fact.
And to me, it's just nuts…
After all, America isn't just the land of opportunity and democratic freedoms. It's the single-greatest wealth machine in the history of the human race.
So why are so many Americans struggling right now?
Well, there's no doubt the Great Recession of 2008 cut a swath through a lot of people's savings. Millions lost their jobs and had to rob from their savings just to make ends meet. I sincerely hope that didn't happen to you.
But here's the truth…
Anyone can learn how to build wealth. Anyone can turn $25,000 into $250,000. I'm going to show you how today.
Hope has nothing to do with it…
The Road to Wealth is Paved By Tech
Look at all the technological breakthroughs that have taken place during the past century. Those advances have changed our lives.
And the investors who had the foresight to put some money down… well, many of them became wealthy… if not downright rich.
I'm talking about the light bulb, the radio, the TV, and the airplane — just to name a few.
Underpinning those innovations are such technological breakthroughs as transistors, semiconductors, computers, software, the Web and smartphones.
And innovation never ends.
Every year in the U.S., more billionaires are made in technology than any sector on earth.
To be sure, if you step back and look at the history of U.S. stocks, you see one giant long-range bull market (with some really dramatic short-term dips along the way).
What really drove this market expansion was fresh capital. That comes from innovation and from having lots of new stocks to sell to investors.
Of course, it's always the hot initial public stock offerings (IPOs) that grab the headlines. But the reality is that you don't have to be an insider who grabs one of those sexy deals to make big bucks.
You just have to know how to find the right company at the right time…
It Took Just Seven Months…
Had you bought shares of anti-obesity drug-maker Arena Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: ARNA) in January of last year, you would have made 640% in just seven months.
Since those are the kind of returns than can supercharge just about any investors' portfolio, let's do the math.
Take the average American's net savings of $25,000 (from The WSJ report) and boost it by 640%.
Not counting taxes (don't get me started on that), you wind up with a new net worth of $185,000. Do that a few times, and you're on Easy Street.
And I just pulled that example off the top of my head. There are more. A lot more…
I had the opportunity to get my readers into high-tech metals, for example, long before they became known as "rare earths." Those who followed along had a chance to make 199%, 67%, 38% and 353% in a very short time.
And here's the great thing about investing in high tech the way I do…
All you have to do is follow the "Five Rules" – a rigorous, no-exceptions evaluation strategy I've had 30 years to perfect. Each and every company I invest in must satisfy all five requirements.
And today we'll look at Rule No. 4, which can lead you to the "Holy Grail" of investing…
The Core Driver of Triple-Digit Profit Potential
This is the one thing that elevates the tech sector far above any other profit opportunity you can think of. It's also the one thing that will let you take $25,000 and turn it into $250,000… or $500,000.
I'm talking, of course, about growth.
If you're looking to create life-changing wealth – to get rich – then you have to find investments that can deliver superior growth on a consistent basis… like clockwork.
Most people, for example, haven't heard of Buenos Aires-based Mercadolibre Inc. (NasdaqGS: MELI), a company I detailed last week.
But they'd be better off if they had…
The "eBay of Latin America" boasts a customer base that accounts for nearly two-thirds of all online users throughout the fast-growing region. And it just added another 4.5 million customers last quarter – another double-digit year-over-year increase.
It's happening over at InvenSense Inc. (NYSE: INVN), too. The company's up 40% since I introduced it to readers on May 17. But I'd be surprised if it doesn't hit at least $30 a share by the end of 2015.
And that's why it satisfies Rule No. 5: "Target Companies That Can Double Your Money," which we'll cover next.
Check Your Inbox: You'll receive an email later today that details Michael's new recommendation. In the meantime, take an advanced look right here. As you'll see, passing the growth "test" of Rule No. 4 has never been easier…
