I was one of the first analysts to pronounce this as the "Golden Age of Materials Science."
You know what I'm talking about – all those "Miracle Materials" that are changing our lives: There are the advanced composites that lighten our airliners; the great plastics that increase the "cool factor" of today's cars – while also making them safer and more economical. They include one of earth's more abundant resources, and the new discoveries, such as graphene, that promise to revolutionize biotechnology, computers, and industry.
But this Age of Materials Science isn't just about new inventions. It also involves new kinds of "know-how" – including insights on how to use existing materials in revolutionary new ways.
I've uncovered a company that's found a way to use a most basic material in the most miraculous new ways. And that is making it one of the best stocks to buy for folks who act now.
America's (New) War for Independence
Sand is one of the most abundant materials on earth.
It's also one of the most useful.
Think about it: Sand is a key ingredient in glass, paint, concrete, and bricks. And it's a key ingredient in the "fracking" boom that's promising to give America its energy independence.
But just because it's plentiful and useful doesn't mean it's low-tech.
Just looking at fracking – or "hydraulic fracturing," as the experts refer to it. In its role as a drilling "proppant," this granular substance is helping to fuel America's new energy boom. At the very least, it serves as a catalyst for the growth industry of hydraulic fracturing that today is worth more than $40 billion.
So, because of fracking and the explosive growth in U.S. energy production, many fortunes are being made from sand.
And fracking isn't the only sand-paved path to wealth.
The mid-cap leader I'm going to tell you about today is using several types of sand to deliver a pile of profits.
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.
