Stats Confirm: The Road to Wealth Is Still Paved by Tech

I'm writing today to ask you a simple question: Would you like to earn a 49,000% return on your investment?

Please don't think I'm just being rhetorical here.

You see, I've been telling just about anyone who will listen for the last four years that the Road to Wealth Is Paved by Tech.

During that period, we've often been met with deep skepticism from the national media. But a there's a powerful new stat that proves what we've been saying all along.

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal showed that the single biggest-gaining stock since 1926 is a tech leader I've recommended many times.

Thanks to its 49,000% return, had you put $10,000 into Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) back when it went public in the late 1990s, you would have walked away with $4.9 million.

Clearly those returns are once in a lifetime.

But the fact remains that you must do two things if you want to absolutely crush the market...

  • You must invest in high tech.
  • You must establish the right guide to help you separate the winners from the losers.

And today, we'll figure out how to do both...

Four Years of Smashing Markets with Tech

No matter what the market conditions have been since I founded this service back in March 2013, I've kept the faith about how the right tech investments can change your life.

Just a few days ago, I got a note from a colleague who happened upon a clip of me as a guest on FOX Business Network in 2013. There I was pounding the table that investing in tech is the best way to make sure you have enough money to retire.

"Everyone should have listened to you then," my colleague wrote in the text. "They would be rich now."

Proof in the Pudding

I felt vindicated by the WSJ's article on Amazon's amazing returns. So let me share some of its key data points about tech's impact on people's portfolios.

Of the five "super stocks" that account for a total of 10% of wealth created in the market from 1926 to 2015, four were tech-centric firms.

Exxon Mobile Corp. (NYSE: XOM) was the leader with 2.96%. It was followed, in order, by Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), and International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM).

And that's based on data that don't include the past 17 months, during which tech has gained roughly 20%. Amazon tacked on nearly 40% returns itself.

Since early January 2013, the S&P 500 has gained roughly 65% - no doubt a very good return. But during the same time frame, the tech-centric Nasdaq gained just shy of 100%.

In other words, if all you did was buy a basket of tech shares, you would have not only doubled your money in just four years, but you also would have beaten the broad market by roughly 53%.

But if you had the right tech investing guide - the right guru - to help you along the way, you would have done better - much better.

And I can prove it...

Checking Our Scoreboard

Members of my Nova-X Report newsletter and my Radical Technology Profits premium trading service have doubled their money in as little as a year - multiple times.

Let's start with some big scores for Nova-X readers, where we have an 81.5% win rate on all open positions.

On May 15, we sold a portion of one of our mobile-centric chip stocks for profits of 104%. Yes, that was one of our older holdings, but we doubled our money on that tranche in less than half the time it took the Nasdaq to show the same gains.

And take the case of our cloud-based supplier of software tools for biopharma companies. We bought that stock almost exactly one year ago. We're up 100%, compared with a 13.5% gain for the S&P 500, meaning we beat the broader market by more than sevenfold.

In May 2016, we bought shares of a firm that is leading the way in next-gen display systems. We're now up more than 90% on the small-cap leader.

Over at Radical Tech, we often make even better gains. Just last week, we made a bonus call options trade on a Chinese web leader. We closed this trade in just three days - with combined returns of 50%.

You could break your calculator trying to figure out the annualized returns.

Not only that, but the stock is a rocket ship. We've owned it just shy of four months and have racked up 96% returns. That our calculator can handle: It represents an annualized profit of 258%.

Of course, we've had a lot of other big winners along the way.

On May 15, we took two "free trades." That's when you sell half of your position in a stock when it has doubled - so you own the rest of the holdings for "free." That's not bad for owning both of those stocks for roughly 11 months.

And last February, we closed out some of our big winners to make room for a new crop of fast-moving small caps. At that time, we sold the remaining shares of...

  • A chip firm with deep expertise in sensors for 292% gains
  • An online brokerage firm for 171% earnings
  • A California-based aerospace leader for 108% returns
  • A robotic surgery small cap for 84% profits

So, when I say I can prove that the road to wealth is indeed paved with high tech, it's not an empty promise.

Better yet, members who've acted on my 33 years of experience in Silicon Valley can prove it.

I hope you'll consider becoming a member of either the Nova-X Report newsletter or the Radical Technology Profits premium trading service.

At the very least, keep tuning in to our twice-weekly chats here.

I'm going to keep on revealing the tips and tactics that you can use to get on the road to wealth.
