The end-of-year holiday season is a time for memories and reflection, and I found myself engaging in a little of both the other day.
I was alone at the house and was stringing up some Christmas lights and found myself drifting back in time… to middle school and high school.
In seventh grade, I got my first part-time job – changing lightbulbs at an apartment complex. I also began designing and building custom light boxes using colored bulbs controlled with staggered timing switches.
In my freshman year in high school – for my electronics class – I put together a pretty sophisticated strobe light from a nice kit. That was my introduction to capacitors, diodes, and wiring diagrams.
There was a reason for this mental road trip.
You see, the lights that I was stringing up around the perimeter of my house the other day happen to use a very specialized technology.
And this specialized technology is something that I knew you'd want to hear about because it represents a massive profit opportunity.
Today I'm going to tell you all about the technology. And I'm going to show you one of the best stocks to buy to make money from it.
Of course, I'm talking about LEDs, which stands for "light-emitting diodes."
As a veteran analyst out here in Silicon Valley, I know that this technology is state of the art. And as a consumer and lifelong electronics nut, I can honestly say this lighting is the most beautiful I've ever used. At our house this holiday season, LED lighting graces the family Christmas tree inside the house – and our Japanese maple tree out in the yard.
As I stood in our backyard, admiring my handiwork on a moonless night, I finally realized that this lighting technology is every bit as beautiful as it is efficient.
This is truly one of those rare instances where aesthetics and investing go hand in hand…
See, the low-heat glow given off by LED lighting will serve as the catalyst that helps this technology sweep the nation and become a billion-dollar-plus business by the end of this decade.
And it all started with the simple lightbulb…
