When it comes to tech investing, there's a rule of thumb well worth keeping in mind.
Whenever possible, own the company that owns the "standard."
You know what I mean.
Back in the 1990s, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows software and the Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) processors combined to create the "Wintel Standard."
Owning the companies that owned the standard paid off - and paid off big. Throughout the 1990s, the shares of all three companies performed as the "must own" stocks that they were: Microsoft's shares rose more than 9,000%, while Intel's soared 10,000%.
Here's why I'm telling you this.
We just found a company that's angling to "own the standard" in a newly emerging business that will be worth $42 billion in just eight years.
Best of all: This is just one of the businesses this tech firm plays in.
And the others are already successes.
