Two Stocks to Watch Now That Are on Their Way to 100% Returns

Money Morning Director of Technology & Venture Capital Research Michael Robinson has spotted two stocks to watch that are on their way to 100% gains since he first recommended them, and we had to make sure you got in on these profit opportunities now.

Wall Street is overlooking both stocks. The first is considered "boring," and the second is being overlooked despite its 13 quarters of stable sales growth.

But we don't care about what Wall Street thinks. Its loss is our readers' gain. In fact, readers who took Robinson's advice when he first recommended these stocks are already up 32.89% and 23.14%, respectively. And that's just the start for the gains of these two stocks.

As former Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) CEO Carl Reichardt once told Robinson, "if plain vanilla means making a lot of money, then color me plain vanilla."

Before we get to the two stocks to watch now, here's more on Robinson's market-smashing track record...

Two Stocks to Watch Now for Double-Digit Profits

[mmpazkzone name="in-story" network="9794" site="307044" id="137008" type="4"]

The Stock: Align Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: ALGN)

The Company Description: Align Tech is a global medical device company best known for its clear braces, Invisalign.

The Profit Opportunity: Robinson believes Align has only reached 7% of its potential audience but should reach more soon.

"After talking it over with some dentists, I believe Align can increase its market by 55% over the next three years alone. It's working on next-generation digital tech that features machine learning. And because of that technology, dentists will be able to tackle tougher cases in up to 4 million new patients, Robinson said in May.

Robinson believes Align has a great word of mouth.

"These are status-conscious patients who will post pictures of themselves with their lovely new smiles on social media, giving Align terrific word-of-mouth buzz to a huge audience," said Robinson.

The Profit Timeline:  The ALGN stock price could double by 2020 from when we first recommended it.  

When Robinson first recommended it on May 16, 2017, ALGN opened at $138.83 per share. Yesterday, the ALGN stock price opened at $184.50, which is a 32% gain for our readers who first followed along with Robinson's advice.

But if you missed out on those gains, that's okay. If the ALGN stock price doubles from Robinson's original prediction, Align would trade at $277.66 per share.

For long-term shareholders, that's another potential gain of 50.49%.

And that's just the first winner you can add to your portfolio now...

The Stock: Arista Networks Inc. (NYSE: ANET)

The Company Description: Arista provides cloud-networking solutions across the globe, and Robinson says it has taken market share from Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) because of its high-speed Ethernet switches.

The Profit Opportunity: Arista is a play on the booming cloud computing market, which is expected to be worth $200 billion by 2020, up 196% from $67.5 billion in 2015.

"By investing in cloud players like Arista, you're tapping several high-growth trends at once," Robinson said. "See, the software-defined network (SDNmarket is on fire, because all that code can access all types of hardware needed to run cloud centers. IDC says that from the base year of 2014, the SDN sector will grow by 54% a year through 2020, when it will be worth $12.5 billion."

Robinson also points out that Arista has been doubling sales almost every year and a half.

"We get a good sense here of a firm that still has plenty of runway left. Sales growth has remained stable for 13 quarters. Over the past three years, sales have climbed by an average 42%, doubling roughly every 18 months," Robinson said.

The Profit Timeline:  The ANET stock price could double between 2019 and 2020 from when we first recommended it. 

Robinson projected ANET could double in two-and-a-half years.

Robinson recommended the stock on July 28, 2017. That day, ANET opened at $151.05 per share. Yesterday, the ANET stock price opened at $186.01, which is a 23.14% gain for our readers who first followed along with Robinson's advice.

But if you missed out on those gains, that's okay. If ANET stock price doubles from Robinson's original prediction, Arista would trade at $302.1 per share.

For long-term shareholders, that's another potential gain of 62.41%.
