Biden's Move Could Put 50% or More in Your Pocket

A change in D.C. is the perfect time to make sure your investing and trading posture is lined up with trends the government really drives with the federal budget and new policy.

Or, if you want to put it another way, when $4.8 trillion starts talking, it pays… a lot… to listen.

Earlier this week, President Biden committed to taking the entire federal fleet "green" with electric vehicles, or EVs – American-made EVs, to be precise.

Big slices of the private sector have been making similar moves for a year or two now, moving to EVs or "clean-ish" natural gas power, so really, this is Uncle Sam playing catch-up. In the long run, it is cheaper and they do reduce harmful emissions, and it jives with the Biden administration's stated "Made in America" policy, too.

Turns out, it takes a lot of vehicles for the government to do its thing. Now, just to be clear, I'm talking about the cars and trucks you sometimes see out and about with tags that read "U.S. Government" – I'm not counting hundreds of thousands of military vehicles like tanks or Humvees.

At last count, the federal vehicle fleet was thought to be around 645,000, and in some cases, the government's going to have to move pretty quickly to replace them.

Take the U.S. Post Office, for instance. We all recognize the Northrop Grumman-made "Long Life Vehicles," or LLVs that mail carriers work their routes in. Well, the LLV design isn't living up to its name, because it's getting on 30 years old at this point; they're said to be breaking down and catching fire on the regular.

In other words, the spend is going to have to come quickly, and it is going to have to be big.

There are two big-money trends at work here – electric and self-driving vehicles (SDVs). There are two companies "in play" in this story, one of which I think is a juicy takeover target. When the trigger gets pulled, takeover targets typically experience fast, intense bull runs.

A Robot Pilot Shot Down an F-16 - and That Makes This Tiny Defense Stock a "Buy"

Back on Aug. 20, a U.S. Air Force pilot climbed into an F-16 "simulator" – in essence, a digital copy that does everything a real Lockheed Martin Fighting Falcon can do – and squared off in a "dogfight" against an artificial intelligence robot.

The result: The AI robot shot the human pilot down in flames.

Digitally speaking, of course.

The shoot-down of a human F-16 pilot was part of a multi-day dogfight competition sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). In fact, it played out in the grand finale of that DARPA "Air Combat Evolution" (ACE) competition – and meant that an AI "algorithm" was crowned as champ.

A robot is America's Top Gun.

It's a next key step in the "Drones Revolution" I've been chronicling for my Private Briefing subscribers.

And for investors like you, it means a hefty "wealth window" has been pushed wide open.

This Aerospace Powerhouse Will Double Your Money (and Seriously Upgrade Your Vacations)

Jet travel is as fast as it's ever been, thanks to new materials like carbon fiber, and ultra-efficient turbofan engines, like General Electric's GE9X and Rolls-Royce's Trent XWB.

Still… a trip from my home in California's Bay Area to, say, Sydney is a grueling, boring 15-plus hours. New York to London clocks in at more than seven hours, and the busy New York to Los Angeles route takes nearly five-and-a-half hours.

But what if you could take off from San Francisco and land in Sydney in a little over three hours? Or make the trip from JFK to London Heathrow in 90 minutes? How about a 230-mile hop between Washington, D.C., and New York that takes just four minutes?

Those incredible travel times are very, very possible traveling at Mach 5 – five times the speed of sound, or around 3,836 miles per hour.

It's become what's known as "hypersonic" speed, and before much longer, it's going to make those mighty GE9Xs and Trent XWBs look like steam engines.

The technology to take us hypersonic isn't coming tomorrow, or "just around the corner" – it's here now. Today.

It's not available to commuters or vacationers – yet – but it's the top priority of American, Chinese, and Russian defense firms.

Markets Live Recap: Stocks Begin the Week Strong as Economic Outlook Brightens

Stocks rose 1.6% today as investors felt optimistic about governments around the world reopening their economies amid the coronavirus outbreak.

In addition to some U.S. states, Italy, Germany, and France said they're also looking to ease the quarantine policies that have been in place for the last two months.

If economies can reopen and consumers feel confident, stocks could continue to rally.

But if the COVID-19 curve starts to steepen as a result, that would likely send stocks lower.

And we could break through the recent lows made last month.

Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson, Tom Gentile, D.R. Barton, Jr., and Shah Gilani – think investors should be doing with their portfolios this week.



Microsoft’s CEO Could Take Your Profits as High as the “Clouds”

Last Friday, I showed you how tech is the single best source for achieving true wealth.

It's literally the only place where you can take a handful of stocks, maybe even just one big winner, and cash out with $1 million in the bank.

Specifically, I revealed how MSFT precisely fit the bill. On its way to grabbing a $1.1 trillion market cap, the stock made savvy investors wealthy.

To put that into perspective, $25,000 worth of MSFT stock in early 1994 would be worth an amazing $1.2 million today.

But Microsoft's run is far from over. Just during the last five years, the company has made a series of shrewd moves that have put it on pace to become a $2 trillion stock.

Simply stated, Microsoft leaves no stone unturned in the search for new growth.

And - as I'll show you today - I see the storied leader doubling in value again in five years or less...


The Best Defense Stock to Buy as Tensions with Iran Build

With tensions building between the U.S. and Iran, we went searching for the top defense stock to buy right now.

And we found just the one…

It has a strong balance sheet with just $2 billion in debt.

And its total debt to capital sits at just 29.4%, compared to an industry average of 68%.

The firm even pays a 2.13% dividend, which outpaces its rivals 1.9% average.

And its gross profit margins, operating profit margins, and net profit margins all outpace the industry average as well.

But the company’s standard financial metrics tell just half of the story of why it is a breakout stock with a very high VQScore.

As you’ll see, the firm is about to make major strides in the increased competition for Pentagon dollars…

Investors Who Stick with Boeing Are Looking at More Triple-Digit Gains

As someone who's been overwhelmingly bullish on Boeing for years (and for good reason), Bill's closely following the tragic details of the deadly Boeing 737 MAX 8 crash in Ethiopia.

The uncertainty over the safety of the MAX 8 and Boeing in general is understandable.

But with billions of dollars and priceless human lives at stake, Bill's going to share why he's every bit as bullish on Boeing today as he was last Friday...
