Every year, I ask myself what the future will look like for my kids.
I think about what the landscape will be 10, 15 or even 20 years from now, and then how to best prepare them for that future.
And what I’ve told my kids is the same thing that I’ll tell you: You need to be prepared for a world dominated by artificial intelligence (AI).
Smart machines are the key toward natural human progression. And as industries like the Internet of Things and robotics grow, we’re going to see more visual representations of AI in our day-to-day interactions.
This presents us with a unique opportunity as investors. We already know as the industries that participate in intelligent machines grow, so do the companies that help make them.
Targeting Massive Winners
In today’s video, I’ll talk more about the different technological developments that are going to play out for many years. I’ll also give you my No. 1 exchange-traded fund (ETF) that will help you gain broad exposure to these different emerging trends.
Hi, this is Paul for your Winning Investor Daily for this week.
This week, I want to tell you about some incredible news. It’s about an investment, an area, that I’ve been telling you about for a very long time. And I’ll show you that I’ve actually been telling you about this investment, this set of investments, since June of 2016.
That’s when I first told you about the VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (NYSE: SMH), and I told you about it in reference to the Internet of Things.
Today, this ETF and this set of companies — which are semiconductor companies, chip companies — they’re really at the center of every major technological development. Whether you think about the Internet of Things or you think about artificial intelligence, or if you think about robotics, Big Data, and even if you think about things like blockchain or precision medicine.
All of these mega trends — and these are massive, huge technological developments that are going to play out for many years, if not decades — depend, ultimately, on chips.
This is the scenario I laid out for you in June of 2016, and I recommended the ETF to you. If you followed along, you’ve done very, very well.
However, the ETF peaked out in early March or so, at something like in excess of over 100% gains, and then it’s come back down. Today, if you look at the chart and line it up, you’ll see that you’ve made about 95% if you bought in when I first told you about it.
Now, in August the Semiconductor Industry Association, which is the industry group that tracks the chip companies as a whole, announced that chip sales hit an all-time high. An all-time high. Three-month sales were at $40.1 billion, which is up a little under 2% compared to the previous month, and up over 15% compared to last year.
Here’s the headline that’s announcing it from the Semiconductor Industry Association:
And here’s the chart that shows you that chip sales have gone up and then sort of around March they plateaued a little bit.
But I believe this news that’s come out about chip sales is actually going to set up to send this ETF higher — and significantly higher because of the fact that they play such a critical role in so many of these mega trends.
And I didn’t even mention self-driving cars, where you really need to pack these chips into all of these cars.
So, I’m going to tell you that even though I first told you about this ETF in June of 2016, I would tell you that I believe that chip sales are going to continue to keep growing. And that this ETF is really a buy right now, because I believe it’s setting up to do the same thing that it did when I first told you about it in June of 2016.
Now, if you’re the type of person who likes much bigger gains, you have to laser-focus on the particular companies that are really pointed very directly and focused on these big mega trends: The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, self-driving cars and blockchain.
In my Profits Unlimited service, we do this.
We’ve been scoping out these mega trends now for in excess of two years, and we’ve put together what I believe are the best companies, the absolute No. 1 companies to benefit from all of these mega trends.
So, while you’ll do perfectly well as you’ve done by owning the ETF, I believe that you would do even better if you actually held the No. 1 company, the leading companies, the dominate companies that really lead these mega trends.
So, if you’re interested in that, please check out my Profits Unlimited service. And I’ll be back next week with another Winning Investor Daily for you.
Until then, this is Paul Mampilly.
Now, while an ETF is a great addition to any portfolio, it can only get you so far.
If you’re the type of person who likes to make large gains, you’ll need to be laser-focused on the particular companies that are already directly involved in growing these mega trends.
I’ve been scoping out these mega trends in my Profits Unlimited service for over two years now, and we’ve put together a portfolio of the best companies to benefit from these growing markets.
So, while you’ll do perfectly well if you own the ETF I mention in my video, I believe you’ll do even better if you get into the companies I tell my readers about.
