In 2014, we discussed well over 100 ways to make huge gains from tech stocks.
And I'm looking forward to sharing many more tech investing ideas with you in 2015.
Before we get started on that, I want to address the questions and comments you've had about our twice-weekly chats over at Strategic Tech Investor.
I want you to know as much as possible about investing in technology – the single best wealth engine ever – so you can navigate today's choppy markets in a way that creates life-changing gains.
Let's get started with a comment about a company whose services most of us probably use every day…
Futuristic Profits with Google (Nasdaq: GOOG)
Let's start with our Nov. 10 conversation about Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL), a company famous for its search business that is busy laying the groundwork to dominate several futuristic technologies.
Q: Thank you for your insight. It has given me a more thorough understanding of what Google is really all about!
– Charles W.
A: Thanks so much for the nice comment. One of the many things I enjoy about what I jokingly refer to as "my job" is taking the opportunity to shine a new light on tech stocks that many investors simply take for granted.
I see this happen all the time. Wall Street and the mainstream financial media have a tendency to pigeonhole companies or focus mainly on the next quarter. Google is a Silicon Valley giant that is investing for the long haul, years and even decades from now.
That column also drew a question about the mechanics of investing in Google.
Q: Michael, I found your article about Google and Ray Kurzweil very informative. When considering an investment in Google, however, which ticker would you recommend: GOOGL or GOOG? I realize one has Class A shares and the other is Class C, but I'm not sure which would be a better pick.
A: I'm glad you asked that question because it's something that confuses a lot of investors, even some folks in the media who should know better. From a share-price appreciation standpoint, it probably doesn't really matter.
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.
