When we began this journey together a few months ago, we started with a single powerful concept.
Fifty-seven percent of U.S. workers have less than $25,000 in saving - a reality that sentences those folks to a lifetime of vulnerability and fear.
After reading that, we vowed to help you dodge that bleak fate.
The key, we knew, was the U.S. tech sector.
From the lightbulb to the semiconductor to advanced sensors, America's Silicon Valley has churned out a steady stream of innovations that turned ordinary people into millionaires - sometimes virtually overnight.
So we identified seven powerful high-tech trends. And then we used my years of experience as a Silicon Valley insider to create five immutable rules we could use to identify double-your-money profit opportunities.
As we'll show you in an upcoming report, our strategy has already generated some impressive gains. And there's more to come.
The road to wealth, as we like to say, is paved by tech.
And today is the next phase of this journey.
My Favorite High-Growth Profit Plays for 2014
I see still more growth in the New Year, particularly in the global tech sector.
With that in mind, I want to talk with you today about my three favorite profit plays for 2014 - stocks to buy that I believe will pack a punch for your portfolio.
So without additional introduction, let's get down to business - because we don't want you to be part of the ill-fated 57%.
And with the Strategic Tech Investor working on your behalf, there's no need to be...
When we unveiled our strategy back in the spring, I said you could get started immediately. The reason: I was predicting that 2013 would be a strong year for investing in tech stocks.
I was right.
The tech-focused Nasdaq Composite Index has gained nearly 33.5% this year - in spite of such challenges as the U.S. "Fiscal Cliff," the scandalously flawed rollout of Obamacare, and the longstanding worries about a U.S. central bank tapering, to name just a few.
And the gains aren't going to end there.
Tech investors stand to make a lot of money in the New Year as Silicon Valley innovators continue to create all sorts of new tech-based products and services.
Not surprisingly, the seven high-tech trends we identified earlier this year helped us define these newest picks.
And we'll start with "The Cloud."
Out in Space - Cyberspace, That Is...
One of the "quiet revolutions" taking place in tech has to do with how all the "stuff" that we use online is accessed and stored. And it's a big deal.
Businesses no longer have to buy, set up, and run their own computer networks. Instead, they're tapping the power of the Cloud.
Cloud computing refers to an innovation that allows third-party vendors to host applications for clients who can then access them from any place at any time - needing only the usual Internet connection.
It sounds simple. But make no mistake - it's huge.
The respected research firm Forrester predicts Cloud computing will increase from a $41 billion base in 2011 to $241 billion in 2020. We're talking growth of roughly 487% by the end of this decade.
About the Author
Michael A. Robinson is a 36-year Silicon Valley veteran and one of the top tech and biotech financial analysts working today. That's because, as a consultant, senior adviser, and board member for Silicon Valley venture capital firms, Michael enjoys privileged access to pioneering CEOs, scientists, and high-profile players. And he brings this entire world of Silicon Valley "insiders" right to you...
- He was one of five people involved in early meetings for the $160 billion "cloud" computing phenomenon.
- He was there as Lee Iacocca and Roger Smith, the CEOs of Chrysler and GM, led the robotics revolution that saved the U.S. automotive industry.
- As cyber-security was becoming a focus of national security, Michael was with Dave DeWalt, the CEO of McAfee, right before Intel acquired his company for $7.8 billion.
This all means the entire world is constantly seeking Michael's insight.
In addition to being a regular guest and panelist on CNBC and Fox Business, he is also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter. His first book Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings warned people about the coming financial collapse - years before the word "bailout" became a household word.
Silicon Valley defense publications vie for his analysis. He's worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.
And even with decades of experience, Michael believes there has never been a moment in time quite like this.
Right now, medical breakthroughs that once took years to develop are moving at a record speed. And that means we are going to see highly lucrative biotech investment opportunities come in fast and furious.
To help you navigate the historic opportunity in biotech, Michael launched the Bio-Tech Profit Alliance.
His other publications include: Strategic Tech Investor, The Nova-X Report, Bio-Technology Profit Alliance and Nexus-9 Network.
