I've fallen head-over-heels in love once gain.
And no, my wife has nothing to worry about. It's not a younger woman or anything like that.
Instead, it's a 321-horsepower V-6 beast of a car that handles like a dream but is also very economical to drive.
Then again, this is a three-motor hybrid model equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission that you shift from the steering wheel when in sport mode.
That's not all – not by a long shot. See, my new 2019 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid excels at semiautonomous driving.
Now I know from personal experience why analysts say the market for self-driving autos will grow a stunning 10-fold, to a whopping $556 billion, in less than a decade.
Clearly that is a massive market, and one that savvy tech investors would do well to target.
Today, I want to reveal one of the best and brightest companies in tech.
It's a great play on autonomous driving.
Heck, it's a great play on virtual reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies… and just about everything else going down in Silicon Valley.
And it could easily hand us 65% gains in just the next 12 months – and much more than that for many years to come.
My Personal Test Drive of This Tech
I can't say enough good things about my new ride.
It has just about every feature you can imagine, from a state-of-the-art infotainment system that integrates Apple Car Play, to surround-view cameras, to a four-way tunable suspension system.
I had been thinking for some time now about replacing our old one, so my wife and I recently cruised over to our local Acura dealer to check out the latest hybrid version of the MDX.

And am I glad we did. Our salesman, Nico, knew the car cold, and that was a big help with the test drive in semiautonomous mode.
Of course, the car has the adaptive cruise control feature I had in my 2016 model. I always used it on the highway to keep pace safely with the traffic in front of me.
But during my recent test drive, Nico convinced me to go semiautonomous in city traffic, kicking in the low-speed system.
I was blown away.
My new MDX handles city traffic with aplomb, coming to a complete stop behind the vehicle in front of it – and at a safe distance.
It was a paradigm-shifting experience. Two days after taking delivery, I drove the MDX from the Bay Area to Sacramento and back. I let the vehicle control the brakes almost 100% of the time, finding that the system can handle everything from following at 75 miles an hour to bumper-to-bumper traffic, shifting between the two with finesse.
No wonder this market is about to break out in a big way…

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.
His other publications include: Strategic Tech Investor, The Nova-X Report, Bio-Technology Profit Alliance and Nexus-9 Network.
