Tech stocks have led the market higher for years, and now they’re dragging it down. But we are far from the end of tech’s era.
What we’ve seen in the markets recently is an expected, albeit abrupt, interruption in a mega-trend that’s going to continue for decades – maybe even forever.
We only have to look at the two hardest-hitting tech darlings to see what’s happening right now.
The Real Cause of the Political Standoff
Both of these companies are the leaders in what they do. Facebook practically wrote the book on social media, and has 2.2 billion users to prove it. Amazon went from a bookseller to grocery outlet to everything in between.
The problem for both of these giants is that they’re skiing downhill at breakneck speed and are way out ahead of their skis. They’re ahead of regulators everywhere, ahead of politics, and ahead of the trends that they eventually become the standard.
Specifically, in Facebook’s case, as said in the Heisenberg Report, “… it was always absurd to think that Facebook [was] going to continue to operate unfettered as the preferred medium of (un)civil discourse once it became abundantly clear that [the] platform [was] being used (in some cases by bots operating at the apparent behest of foreign intelligence services) to manipulate the public.”
That’s Facebook’s problem in a nutshell. Of course, it has other issues, but the lack of regulation of social media sites is now front and center. And that’s shining a light on how all emerging technology companies and their “new age” business models are being regulated.
In Amazon’s case, it’s about two things: sheer size and politics.
In terms of size, Amazon is a category killer. It has killed bricks-and-mortar retailers and malls, for one thing. It’s killing small business retailing start-ups, and it’s killing budding competitors in areas like home connectivity and cloud computing.
Because of its size, Amazon was going to become a target at some point. That point in time has just arrived.
Amazon isn’t in trouble because tiny competitors who have no fighting chance are attacking – and it’s not because regulators are pointing antitrust fingers either. We’re here because Amazon’s founder owned up to his disdain for President Donald Trump in an article from the Washington Post.
That’s right; Jeff Bezos may have finally bitten off something he can’t chew up and swallow.
There’s a Way to Profit From This
President Trump regularly berates Amazon because of The Post’s coverage of him. An article in The Washington Post last week said, “One person who has discussed the matter repeatedly with the president explained that a negative story in The Post is almost always the catalyst for one of his Amazon rants.”
Mr. Trump regularly calls the paper “the Fake Washington Post” and demanded last week that it register as a lobbyist for Amazon.
Of course, Amazon in its entirety is now under attack, and, like Facebook, has crossed over into the political realm in a big, bad way.
New regulations will be fashioned to address the political side of what these companies do, and it will affect their business models as they exist now. Which, for both companies, has illustrated a free and very open market in every way.
But they’re not going anywhere. They’re just going to have to adjust.
I love both companies, and want you to own both for the long haul.
The way to buy into them is to sell puts on both. Because I like buying stocks lower, and the two can both go lower, selling puts at lower strike prices than where they’re trading now (if they fall to those levels) lets you buy them lower. If they go up instead of down, you get to keep the money that you got selling your puts.
When stocks I love go lower and I want to own more, I sell more puts. I’m always happy to buy more shares at lower prices.
That’s how I’ve been able to show my elite members opportunities to see nearly 3,000% in total gains (including partial closeouts) in just the first three months of 2018…
Is this by chance? Absolutely not.
I started on the trading floor in Chicago and grew to become a successful hedge fund manager and have dedicated 36 years to this industry.
Why? Because I love it, and I’m great at it.
Now I’m giving you the chance to get in on this once in a lifetime opportunity, so you can also reap the benefits of over three decades of knowledge and expertise as well.
I’m only offering this to the first 100 people who commit… Because spaces are limited.
