These 3 Tech Stocks Will Keep Crushing the Market

My wife says that at the rate I'm going, we're going to have to buy a new table.

Let me explain. My job as your tech analyst is to go beyond the headlines and find great tech stocks that can absolutely crush the market – in good times and in bad.

And that often means pounding the table for the global tech ecosystem in general, and for market rippers in particular.

That's exactly what I did back on Jan. 11. You may not recall it, but in my mind's eye, it's as if it were just yesterday.

At the time, the tech-centric Nasdaq had entered bear market territory, defined as a 20% drop from a recent high. I said it was "fear and not fundamentals" that was driving the market lower.

I then listed three beaten-down tech leaders I said were poised for big rebounds.

Today, I'm following up let you know – all three just crushed it, as I'll show you.

And I'll also show you why there's still plenty of upside ahead...

Don't Be Afraid of Volatility; It's an Extremely Profitable Ace in the Hole

Traders and investors everywhere are spooked by volatility whenever it rears its head. We hear about it every time stocks take a tumble, even if that doesn't happen so much these days. So the Investopedia definition I'll show you is probably the last thing they're thinking of.

"Volatility: A statistical measure of the dispersion of returns for a given security or market index. Commonly, [emphasis mine] the higher the volatility, the riskier the security."

Now, that doesn't sound so scary, does it?

Volatility is nothing more than a statistical tool that shows how much a stock goes up or down. Yet many see volatility as a bad thing, because they equate it to risk. And risk is bad for us, right?

Well, sometimes risk is bad. But to the smart investor, volatility is a difference maker. Because without it, you might as well just buy a CD. More importantly, you have zero chance of beating the market. And where's the fun in that?

That's right: Without volatility, you don't beat the market.

That's why one of my 10 Trading Commandments is "Volatility is a trader's best friend!"

Now, let me prove it to you...
