I get a lot of questions from you folks here at the Strategic Tech Investor.
And the single most frequently asked query is this one:
"Michael, what's the best way to get started as a tech investor?"
I'll grant you: As questions go, that's probably the most basic one that you'll find.
But I'm a firm believer in the theory that there's no such thing as a stupid question.
Indeed, I actually view this as one of the smartest questions an investor can ask. And it isn't just being raised by folks who are just starting out as investors: We've also heard from those of you who are trying to get a fresh start - and are attempting to rebuild your wealth after a personal financial wipeout.
A question this great deserves an equally terrific answer.
So today I'm going to tell you about the three very best "building-block" investments in tech - profit plays so powerful that everyone investing in tech should put them to use.
Beginners can use them to put their financial futures on the launch pad.
And market veterans can use them to shoot their net worth into the stratosphere.
When you add in the fact that each of these three profit opportunities are a lot less risky than the leading tech highfliers - meaning they're perfect for the up-one-day, down-the-next market we're facing right now - the real question to ask is this:
"If you're not holding each of these three tech profit plays, what are you waiting for?"
"Building" Wealth by Investing in Tech
Here at Strategic Tech Investor, we love high-quality tech stocks.
And we put a lot of faith in the building-block power of tech-themed exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
ETFs offer broad access to some of the tech sector's top performers - often for an initial investment of less than $100 - while also squeezing down the risk posed by holding individual stocks.
However, there's a problem - or, more accurately, a challenge: Because most investors have the bulk of their wealth in restricted retirement accounts - such as a company 401(k) - they might not be able to funnel money into these powerful investment vehicles.
That's okay, though, since there's an alternative ...
Three, in fact.
And each one is terrific.
I'm talking about three more-conventional mutual funds - each of which gave investors a gain that was twice that of the overall market. We refer to them in-house here as our three "Tech-Wealth Building Blocks" - and with good reason.
Our mantra here at Strategic Tech Investor is that "the road to wealth is paved by tech." Well, if we say that great wealth is the ultimate destination of the journey we're trying to help you take, then these three funds are like an "Investment EZ-Pass" that will make this trip as fast, safe, and hassle-free as possible.
So let's take a look ...
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.
