Now it can finally be said – I was right and Wall Street and the media were dead wrong.
In fact, if you listened to those alleged experts, you would have left a lot of money on the table in this incredible bull market.
Here's why I say that…
For at least the last seven years, time and again we have seen the Street and the media suggest that a tech rout was at hand.
I often felt like the lone voice in the crowd when I would remind you that the road to wealth is paved with tech.
So, you can imagine my reaction when I saw a recent story in The Wall Street Journal that said tech stocks are on the verge of their best year since the bull market began in 2009.
But I believe there's much more to come.
And this stock is the perfect start to building your tech fortune…
A New Frontier in Tech
Over the last several months, we have seen repeated stories and Wall Street speculation of a regulatory crackdown on big tech. Add to that concerns about slowing global growth, and tech was supposedly headed for a meltdown.
That's why WSJ's Nov. 19 piece was so important. It proved that the opposite was true.
As of that day, the S&P 500's tech index had shown a 41% gain for the year so far. That compares with just 24% for the broader S&P itself.
Make no mistake, this is no one-year victory here for the lucrative field that is high tech.
Since the bull market began on March 9, 2009, the S&P is up roughly 270%. By contrast, the tech-centric Nasdaq Composite Index is up 488%, beating the broad market by nearly 81%.
Now you know why I get so frustrated when I go on national TV to defend tech against worries that a so-called "bubble" is at hand. I've been doing it for a long time now.
Indeed, the oldest clip I can find of me busting the tech sell-off myth was on Fox Business Network back on Nov. 21, 2013.
I told host Stuart Varney in no uncertain terms that tech would lead the market for years to come. (You can access that clip by simply clicking here.)
How could I be so certain? Well, as someone who has knocked around Silicon Valley for more than 35 years, I knew we had entered into a whole new dynamic.
In the modern digital world, chips, software, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, servers, sensors, and machine learning have all become closely interrelated.
That's why tech is even more lucrative today than it has been in the past. It's an unstoppable force and the greatest source of wealth the world has ever seen.

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.
