After Sunday night's presidential debate, I was disheartened.
Donald Trump was – as he himself would put it – a disaster.
And Hillary Clinton shimmied and pivoted and deflected all night long to try and avoid looking like what she plainly is – a garden-variety corrupt-to-the-gills politician.
I wish I could just be cynical and say it was Washington politics as usual – but really, this felt a lot worse than that.
So afterward, I did the only thing that seems to make sense right now.
I went back to work finding great tech stocks and funds for you folks – the kinds of investments that will truly put you on the Road to Wealth.
That lifted my spirits – and I thank you for that.
In fact, my investigation showed me why America will always be great – never mind the morass we may now find ourselves in.
Better yet, my fact-finding mission led me to a wealth-building tech investment that proves my point.
Take a look…
American high-tech and life-sciences firms have pushed the market higher and higher since the end of the financial crisis. Just as they have done throughout our nation's history.
From the steam engine and the lightbulb to the semiconductor and the smartphone, U.S. technology changes the world around us, creating new wealth along the way.
As I often remind you all, the Road to Wealth is paved with high tech.
And that's why I think you should look at the Guggenheim S&P 500 Equal Weight Technology ETF (NYSE Arca: RYT). It holds more than 70 stocks, each of which, as the name says, is equally weighted.
RYT is a broad play on the U.S. tech sector. Its three main areas of focus are IT services (24.9%), semiconductors (25%), and software (18%).
It holds nameplate U.S. tech companies like Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), whose mobile and computer products are ubiquitous throughout the world. RYT also holds Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), offering a great play on software and PC gaming.
Then there's Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), a broad play on the booming semiconductor industry. RYT is also invested in a Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB), a leader in social media, the mobile revolution, and virtual reality.
