The Secret to Tech Investing
Ive been a successful tech investor for 30 years.
In that time, Ive watched tech trends come and go.
And while tech stocks can make you unbelievably rich...
Bad stock-picking can send you to the poorhouse quick.
Especially in todays volatile markets.
So it begs the question... what makes a good tech investment?
Theres one rule that I follow when investing in tech, and its served me well over my entire career
And today Im going to share my secret to stock-picking success...
Thirty years ago, investors like you and me could barely scratch the surface of the stock market.
If you wanted to invest in a small company with a big idea for the world, youd have to call your broker to make the trade.
And the trading fees were enormous.
Doing your homework on these companies back then was even tougher without the internet.
Nowadays, research and trading are as simple as two clicks of a button.
But even back then, my rule made it easy for me to choose the right stocks...
I only invest it companies that I believe in.
Companies that are making the world a better place.
And I do well by doing good.
I know it sounds simple, but belief is a powerful thing.
And thanks to technology, its easier than ever to invest in innovative companies than ever before.
Think of all the things that have changed the world that you can invest in today
Space technology has created items like baby formula, cochlear implants and artificial limbs.
Furthermore, projects like Starlink are keeping their promise of bringing broadband to areas of the world in broadband dead zones. And the space program was revived alongside the launch of SpaceXs Dragon bringing the launches home from Russia.
Electric vehicle companies are creating a cleaner, cheaper way to travel. And to go even further, Tesla and other companies are using their battery technology to bring backup energy to places like Australia that have had serious issues with fluctuating power outages.
And if thats not enough, lets look at what tech companies have done in the wake of COVID-19 specifically biotech.
The novel coronavirus has eluded scientists for many years before the pandemic, as it was tough to nail down with normal vaccine technology.
And yet faced with this adversity, we not only have one working vaccine, but nearly half a dozen.
With this too, Moderna and Pfizer have cracked the code on two vaccines that are unlike anything else weve developed in human history.
Their mRNA vaccine technologies have the chance to be applied to other debilitating diseases
Even for targeted cancer cells in patients.
Tech continues to be the best place to put your money because it gives you the chance to do this kind of good for the world.
And when good is done, markets react overwhelmingly positively to the results.
Modernas stock, for instance, at the beginning of 2020 was were around $20.
By the end of that year it had reached over $150 and would even go as high as $180 in the following February.
Thats nearly a 10x payout back to you all for investing in the company doing the most good for the world.
So when it comes to finding these companies, thats where I come in to help.
Not everyone who invests has the time or effort to do their due diligence researching each and every one of these companies.
You can scour the web for interviews, look at their balance sheets or go on what talking heads are saying.
But when it comes down to it, what product they deliver in the end is key.
And with me, you get a boots-on-the-ground approach to find out if these companies are legitimate.
My approach is to interview people where I can, do my own research and if necessary go to the company itself to take a tour of the facilities to see for myself.
If I invest in a company, I want to believe in what theyre doing.
I want to believe that theyre going to do the best for the world around them.
And if I can make a quick buck on the way, thats even better.
To a bright future,
