When we began this journey together a few months ago, we started with a single powerful concept.
Fifty-seven percent of U.S. workers have less than $25,000 in saving - a reality that sentences those folks to a lifetime of vulnerability and fear.
After reading that, we vowed to help you dodge that bleak fate.
The key, we knew, was the U.S. tech sector.
From the lightbulb to the semiconductor to advanced sensors, America's Silicon Valley has churned out a steady stream of innovations that turned ordinary people into millionaires - sometimes virtually overnight.
So we identified seven powerful high-tech trends. And then we used my years of experience as a Silicon Valley insider to create five immutable rules we could use to identify double-your-money profit opportunities.
As we'll show you in an upcoming report, our strategy has already generated some impressive gains. And there's more to come.
The road to wealth, as we like to say, is paved by tech.
Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joined FOX Business' "Varney & Co." today (Thursday) to discuss the viability of tech stocks in 2014.
The hype and excitement that follow tech stocks can make them particularly volatile. Although Gilani cautions viewers against tech stocks that have reached 52-week highs, he generally believes tech stocks will soar in 2014, and states that "they're global, they're going to be here for a long time, and they're a good place to remain."
Gilani especially cautions viewers against Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO), as he believes the "underlying numbers have not been looking great," highlighting lower display and search revenue in November.
After months of tantalizing rumors that Apple and China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE ADR: CHL) were on the brink of an agreement to allow China's largest carrier to sell the iPhone, the companies finally confirmed the deal yesterday (Sunday).
It's a big new market for Apple's primary profit machine, so it should give Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) stock a huge boost - right?
Well...sort of. But don't put in that order for a new yacht just yet...
Through the end of October, the tech sector had logged 1,715 M&A deals worth approximately $104 billion, according to Dealogic.
By comparison, the entire U.S. M&A market had totaled 8,313 deals worth $960 billion in the same time period.
Yahoo (Nasdaq: YHOO) stock has climbed more than 28% in the past three months and is up 97% year to date. Now the tech company is planning to acquire a startup that helps people exchange pictures and downloads.
Since Marissa Mayer took over as Yahoo's chief executive officer in 2012, the company has made more than 20 acquisitions, mostly startups.
Thanks to two huge product rollouts in November, this holiday season will be one of the hottest ever for this massive slice of the high-tech sector.
That's because three giant companies are fighting it out - to the death - for the biggest piece of a $93 billion windfall.
And investors who identify the winner of this battle stand to pull down a hefty profit.
Today (Monday), Stuart Varney of FOX Business' "Varney & Co." asked Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald if technology made his "Best Investments 2014" list.
Fitz-Gerald's answer: Absolutely.
From the Editor: If you've seen Michael's new briefing, you know why we can't get enough of his research. Today, he gives you yet another reason his subscribers have been able to make so much money.
This is one of the greatest secrets of investing.
It's a strategy that I developed during my 34 years in Silicon Valley. And it will let you tap into some big, big profits for a modest amount of effort.
In fact, this very cool approach to high-tech investing will uncover a bushel of double-digit winners that your friends, co-workers, and others you talk stocks with have no hopes of finding.
Today we're going to perform a bit of high-tech detective work - peering into the shadows of Silicon Valley for profit opportunities most investors don't even know exist.
From the Editor: You're receiving special access to Private Briefing today because Bill is tracking a story with far-reaching implications. More than an opportunity to profit, these events will impact the lives of people all around the world. Here's Bill...
Since launching Private Briefing back in August 2011, we've been chronicling the escalating potential for cyber-warfare and cyber-terrorism. And with the cyber-assaults that China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) have been launching against America over the last year or so, it's a story that we've been following with an increasing amount of attention. However, this whole cyber-hacking, -terrorism, -warfare story is more than just the latest profit opportunity -
On Monday, the Nasdaq index topped 4,000 - its highest level in 13 years. But unlike the last time this happened, during the notorious dot-com boom, tech stocks are not the prime driving force. The sector that's been pushing the Nasdaq higher this time around is soaring because the companies in it are making gobs of money - and have the potential to make much more.
This year has seen the busiest U.S. IPO market since 2007, with 199 companies already going public.
Their performance has investors fearing we've hit IPO market bubble territory.
Of the year's 199 IPOs, 23% priced above their initial IPO ranges.
Through the first two weeks of November, 16 companies have doubled their initial public offering price. Six companies doubled their IPO price on the first day of trading alone.
From the Editor: The gains potential here isn't quite as dramatic as the 1,000,000% growth story Michael's covering at Strategic Tech Investor. But a 200% potential gain is still very attractive. Here's Michael...
For the past 20 years, I've had regular conversations with one of the nation's top chemistry experts.
His name is Dr. Robert Fisher and he is a retired chemist who was also a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley for nearly 40 years.
The fact that he's also my father-in-law shouldn't dissuade you from hearing about the hellacious profit opportunity he clued me in on over dinner the other night.
It centers around an industry that I myself have been following since the late 1980s when I began writing about the Reagan-era defense buildup.
Gone, of course, from that time is the Soviet Union and the threat of a nuclear holocaust.
But what remains are a whole slew of miracle materials that scientists were experimenting with to help give the U.S. military a secret edge.
Today, these miracle materials touch nearly every aspect of our economy, from smartphones, to electric cars, computers, semiconductors, consumer electronics, and satellite communications.
In fact, they've now become so critical to the global economy, they're ready to unleash a $1 trillion windfall.
There have been multi-billion dollar valuations for small, unprofitable companies and soaring share prices for tech names like Facebook (Nasdaq: FB) - are we in a tech bubble?
Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald joined FOX Business' "Varney & Co." this morning to answer that question.
Watch Fitz-Gerald's analysis of what investors must know about the tech stock bubble. He also discusses where the market is headed and gives the name of one stock he's looking at buying today.
