This Deal Could Put You Up Much More Than 149%

It was the very first stock that I recommended on the very first day we published Private Briefing nearly eight years ago…

I've re-recommended the shares to my readers several times, and when something happened that I felt everyone should know about, we made sure to get the news out in Money Morning, too.

When I first wrote about it in 2011, shares were trading at $8.60. As of Wednesday morning, the stock was sitting near all-time highs at $171 – monumental gains of nearly 1,900%.

But I'm writing today because it's been a big winner for you, too – more than 149%.

And I don't think it's done, not by a long shot…

Let me tell you about the company - and all about this latest development...

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is on the move as investors digest the latest round of earnings from Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). The Federal Reserve plans to announce its latest decisions on interest rates and the state of the U.S. economy.

Dow Jones Industrial Average Opens Flat Despite Strong Earnings from Boeing

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was little changed in premarket trading despite a stronger than expected earnings report from Boeing (NYSE: BA).

Wall Street expected EPS of $3.45 on top of $23.72 billion in revenue.

The company cited stronger demand from U.S. defense departments and hiked its full-year 2018 forecast.

Semiconductor Stocks Can Still Be Massively Profitable, Despite What Wall Street Says

Just because Wall Street warned investors to steer clear of semiconductor stocks doesn't mean you can't still earn a huge profit by owning the right one.

Instead of the semiconductor valuation peaking in 2017, it has continued to grow in 2018, already up over 20% year over year.

And there's one semiconductor stock that is poised to bring even greater returns to its investors...

Wall Street Is Dead Wrong on Semiconductor Stocks; This One Could Jump 77%

At the end of 2017, Morgan Stanley announced that semiconductor stocks were "currently at a peak" and that investors should have "increasingly negative prospects for the industry."

Morgan Stanley's comments sent the semiconductor industry into a tailspin – by late December, the sector had undergone a 10% correction, and Wall Street prospects for the industry's 2018 performance were increasingly dim.

However, they couldn't have been more wrong...
