Predictions for 2010
(from the team whose 2009
predictions are already up +65.6%)
StreetAuthority's Market Advisor
letter, whose 2009 stock predictions are up +65.6% (beating the
market over three-to-one) is once again going out on a limb with a
series of startling new forecasts.

pandemic will worsen in 2010. If it metastasizes
globally, it could kill 71 million people. To fend off
catastrophe, the U.S. and other governments will spend

Sugar prices will plummet.
After a monster 11-month move from 12 cents to 26 cents
per pound (hitting its highest level since 1981) sugar

cheap way to play the move that can turn $3,000 into
$27,000 in a matter of weeks.
Treasuries will crash as interest

like to share the report's highlights with you.
They Told Us We were Crazy to Go
Public With Our Predictions
years now, we've been sending letters like this alerting
investors to the market's most pressing dangers and
opportunities. When we began doing this, people told us
we were crazy. ''You're bound to be wrong sometimes,''
they said, ''and that will kill your sales.''
But we felt that investors wanted clear and unhedged
forecasts. And we were determined to provide them for all to see.
What's more, we knew we had developed some exclusive forecasting
methods that have given us great confidence in these predictions.
turned out, investors have enjoyed reading our reports,
because everyone's interested in getting a handle on the
future. When they saw that our analyses made good sense,
and a good many (though certainly not all) of our
forecasts came true, our subscriptions soared.
predictions for 2009, for example, we told our readers
to expect a big move in nanotechology. Our nanotech pick
shot up +293.1%.
We also predicted that a small group of drilling stocks
clustered near the Arctic Circle would explode in price. Our pick in
this sector is up +210.0%.
claimed that the "best sci-fi speculation of the year"
would be a powerful technology called RFID... and that
three stocks would skyrocket. Our picks are up +42.1%...
+88.9%... and +309.5%.
Add them all up and our predictions for 2009 are up
+65.6%. That's almost four times the +17.3% return of the S&P 500.
course, there's no guarantee that our new forecasts will
be as profitable as our earlier ones. But imagine how
much better off you'd be today if you'd had a reliable
set of market predictions in hand a year ago. At this
pivotal economic juncture, on the cusp of a recovery
that could light a fire under the market, these could be
the most profitable recommendations in our history.
without further ado, let me get to our new forecasts.

We Predict that Oil Will Soar in 2010... Hitting $185 per Barrel
Enjoy oil now while it's cheap,
because it will cost twice as much next year.
We predict that Israel will launch an airstrike in 2010
against Iran's uranium-enrichment plant buried under a mountain
range 100 miles southwest of Tehran. Iran will retaliate by
showering missiles on Tel Aviv and will blockade the Strait of Hormuz.
Oil prices will soar to $185 per barrel in the panic.
Even if Israel doesn't attack Iran, oil
prices are under serious pressure. Declines in production,
exploration and the dollar will drive oil prices substantially
higher in the years ahead.
easy oil has been found... big strikes are now extremely
rare... and two major oil exporters -- Indonesia and
China -- now import the stuff.
Meanwhile, the world's largest fields are all
declining... from the Persian Gulf, to the North Sea, to the Gulf of
Mexico, to Alaska.
OPEC is shutting off the spigot. OPEC has cut
production by 12% of its capacity -- dramatically reducing the amount
of oil coming to market.
Plus the dollar is weakening... and crude oil thrives
on a weak dollar. When it doubled from July 2007 to July 2008,
soaring from $74 to $147 a barrel, a major catalyst was the rapid
decline of the dollar.
Global energy exploration is off sharply and future
supplies are already jeopardized. When oil dropped after its 2008
surge, expensive energy projects like oil sands were put on hold.
Oil drilling activity dropped 43%, with year-over-year oil
exploration in the United States alone down 38%. Bids for offshore
drilling rights in the Gulf of Mexico dropped by 80%.
Bottom line: With a weak dollar and reduced
production bolstering oil prices, we'll see a dramatic spike in
crude oil as the world economy picks up. And if war breaks out in
the Mideast, as we think it will, all bets are off.
The best way to profit? In the stocks of a few large
integrated oil companies that are trading at bargain prices.
In Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010, you'll
find two oil giants currently trading at multi-year lows. These
companies have more cash in the bank than debt on their books.
What's more, they are steadily increasing their dividends.
These companies can continue to post profits even if
oil and natural gas prices drop. They have multiple profit centers
and their refining and marketing profits will expand if spot prices
A third favorite is an offshore deep-driller that
recently made the world's largest oil discovery in 32 years. It is
doubly attractive as a foreign company because it will get an
additional boost as the dollar slides.
Best ''Fear Trade'' of 2010: The Swine Flu Pandemic
Will Worsen and a Handful of Biotech Stocks Will Soar
swine flu virus will spread in 2010. The media circus may have
quieted down, but more than 70 countries now report cases of the
virus and the number is growing.
| The World
Health Organization is has raised its pandemic alarm to full
alert for the first time since 1968.
One million Americans are already infected. The X
factor is that epidemiologists don't know how it will react when it
mixes with regular seasonal flu, which already kills 36,000
Americans a year.
Public health officials say an influenza
pandemic could kill 71 million people worldwide. To fend off
catastrophe, the U.S. and other governments around the world
are spending billions to stockpile antiviral drugs and
S. government has already set aside $1 billion to develop the
vaccine to fight the virus. A nationwide H1N1 vaccination program
will cost between $3 billion and $18 billion.
The strong government response to this pandemic could
lead to big profits for several drugmakers. You'll find their names
in Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010.
Roche, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi-Aventis are
all working on vaccines. It's too soon to tell who will win the
fattest contracts. But they are all so large that even a
billion-dollar contract won't do much for the bottom line.
In contrast, the CDC recently awarded a $35 million
development contract to a small biotech company. This is the sort of
company you should be looking to buy.
We especially like a small clinical-stage
biopharmaceutical company based in Maryland.
When the swine flu story hit the news in April, this small
flu-vaccine maker was trading for 81 cents. A day later the stock
That's a +379% jump in price overnight. A few small
fortunes were made from this one simple fear trade.
After surging as high as $7.79, this stock is now back
in the $4 range. If the swine flu hits 40% of the U.S. population,
as the Centers for Disease Control projects could happen, this stock
could go on a rocket ride. You'll get full details on it in your
free copy of Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010.

companies working to develop generic substitutes for biotech drugs.
These medicines save lives, but can also be prohibitively expensive
(cancer drug Avastin costs up to $100,000 annually).
We think a resistance to cheaper biotech equivalents
will soon melt away. Generic prescriptions now account for almost
70% of all pills taken nationwide. These inexpensive alternatives
have saved more than $730 billion over the past decade.
Biotechs have fended off generic imitators until now,
but the copycats are about to break through. Bipartisan legislation
pushing for a formal FDA approval pathway has been introduced in
both the house and Senate.
By next year, we'll see the FDA approving biogeneric

Best "Sleeper" Play of the Year:
An Obscure Accounting Rule Change Will Send
One of America's Most-Loved Tech Stocks Into Orbit
America's premier technology companies has a funny problem: too much
You see, it conservatively accounts for sales by
spreading revenues over two years. But it gets the cash upfront. So
its reported earnings are tiny compared to its actual cash flow.
The official GAAP earnings investors see don't reflect
this company's impressive profits. But that may soon change. A new
accounting rule is in the works that would let the firm book most of
its revenue upfront.
Last quarter, its earnings per share would have been
+58% higher under this new rule.
Once the new rule is approved, Wall Street analysts
will jack up their earnings estimates, the company's reported
earnings will surge... and the stock will attract millions of new

Best Automotive Investment of 2010: Detroit

mine brags about getting 50 miles per gallon in his Toyota Prius.
But that's nothing compared to the 230 mpg that GM's new Chevy Volt

GM isn't the only American carmaker going electric.
Ford is planning a battery-powered car based on the Focus. And of
course Toyota has the Prius... and Nissan the Leaf.
This growing wave of battery-powered cars doesn't mean
car makers are a good buy. It means battery makers are a good

What's more, these batteries are 100% nontoxic. The CEO
actually drinks the company's battery fluid to prove the point.
Finally, they're cheap. Instead of using expensive
robots on automated assembly lines, it uses cheap Chinese labor. It
pays China's top engineering graduates about $700 a month, which
wouldn't cover a GM shop steward's weekly wages.
The more the world's carmakers rely on batteries, the
more this company will sell of them. It already dominates the
Chinese market and will inevitably build a larger footprint
throughout the world. Buying it now is like buying stock from Sam
Walton when all he owned was a couple of dime stores. See our full
write-up in Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010.
Play of 2010:
Microsoft's Next Shopping Spree Could Earn You +1,300%
past February Microsoft hired a veteran Wal-Mart executive to create
a chain of brick-and-mortar retail stores. Apple has changed
computer marketing with its hip stores, and Microsoft is serious
about regaining lost ground.
Wal-Mart executives get things done fast. And it's a lot quicker to
buy what you need than to build it brick by brick -- especially when
you have enough cash to buy anything you want.
Microsoft has $8.3 billion in cash on hand, and no long-term debt.
It is one of just seven U.S. companies with a triple-A credit
The company we think it will buy has an international
footprint of 5,264 stores. They tend to be in shopping centers and
strip malls... places where people already eat, shop and work.
This is precisely where Microsoft wants to extend its
reach. Buying this retailer will give Microsoft an instant
competitive advantage over Apple, which has only 250 stores.
Overnight, it achieves a footprint that otherwise would take years
So what's the profit potential here? Institutions own
91% of the target company's shares and they have suffered through a
-54% decline in the past two years. I doubt they'll approve a merger
that doesn't help make them whole, especially from a company that
can afford to pay up. An acquisition at $45 a share would give
shareholders a 61% premium and still price the company at less than
its historical valuation.
You have two ways to play this, depending on how
aggressive you want to be: Buy the stock and wait for a takeover
announcement that includes a rich premium... or position yourself
for a huge payday with call options.
In Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010 you will
see $1 options that could easily move to $14 if Microsoft pounces on
this stock as we expect.
Best Commodity Play of 2010: Short Sugar and Buy Wheat
want to see a financial mania? Don't look at stocks, look at
Sugar recently hit its highest price in 28 years as
production in Brazil and India collapsed thanks to El Niño. Sugar
prices touched 26 cents per pound, the most it's fetched since the
shortage of 1981.
Take a look at this
When a market goes vertical like this, a sell-off
usually follows. Sugar has already dropped a few cents from its
high, but it could drop a dime in a hurry. If you're short 10 sugar
contracts, that's $112,000 in your pocket.
| But don't play the futures on sugar. It's too expensive
and risky. In Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010, we explain a
far safer strategy where you can still take advantage of a monster
move in sugar.
If sugar retraces even half its move to the downside,
you can turn $3,000 into $27,000 this way... likely in just weeks.
The long side of our double-barreled commodities trade
is wheat. After a long slide, the wheat market has finally
come off its lows. Prices bottomed out on October 2 at $4.41 per
bushel -- its cheapest price in almost three years.
So far this year, weather conditions have been great.
This is what pushed wheat prices down to new lows almost every week.
But even the slightest hint of bad weather can turn the markets on a
dime -- and trigger a powerful bullish move.
Twice in just the past year wheat has spiked over $7 a
bushel. It could easily do so again if any weather disruption occurs
in the next few months. In that case, a long position in wheat is a
quick path to wealth.
wetter weather sweeping through the Midwest and hampering the
harvest, the crop might come in smaller than predicted. We predict a
rally in wheat up to $7 per bushel within six months.
At around $5 a bushel now, you make $50 for each cent
it moves in a futures contract. That's $10,000 profit per contract
on the next spike to $7. If the news is extra poor, and wheat jumps
back to the $11.40 per bushel it hit in March 2008, you could walk
away with $32,000 -- per contract.
In Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010,
you'll see also how play the most active commodities without leaving
the stock market. You don't need to get involved with commodity
brokers or futures contracts. You'll also find ways to increase your
leverage and reduce your risk... all while sticking to widely held
with enough volume to get in and out quickly and safely.
Best Bond Play of 2010: Short Treasuries
PIMCO's "bond king" Bill Gross calls U.S. Treasuries the "last,
great financial bubble" and "the most overvalued asset in the world,
We're not going to argue with the man who manages more
bond money than anyone else in the world. And we can certainly see
Under Obama's breathtaking spending, the federal budget
deficit will jump to an all-time high of $1.5 trillion this fiscal
year. Over the coming decade, it will swell by another $9 trillion.
As the global economy recovers interest rates and
inflation will rise sharply. Under no scenario are today's
historically low interest rates on U.S. Treasuries sustainable.
Just step back and look at history. The 10-year
Treasury note yield has been in a long-term decline since the early
'80s when it reached 15.8% at the height of inflation. It is now at
3.4%. But the gargantuan government bond issuance to fund the U.S.
debt bubble will push yields steeply higher in coming year -- and bond
prices steeply lower.
We understand why the Fed is trying to clean up the
mortgage-backed securities mess. But in trying to save the financial
system by snapping up these toxic securities the Fed has simply
created another dangerous credit bubble. You can't cure a problem
caused by too much debt by issuing more debt.
Bottom line: Bond investors are being presented with a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get their money out of U.S.
Treasuries at a generational top. Sell what you have now... and
position yourself for profits in the "reverse-bond" securities we
profile in Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010.
Play of the Year: The Release of Microsoft's Windows 7
Will Unleash a Tidal Wave of Business Spending
wasn't much hoopla surrounding the release of Microsoft's latest
operating system. The company deliberately kept the buzz to a
minimum. But we are convinced that the release of Windows 7 will
prove to be a much bigger catalyst than Windows Vista, and will spur
sales up and down the IT chain, from chips to PC makers to
The previous version of Windows (Vista) was a sore
disappointment. Big corporations shied away from the new software,
and most opted to stand pat rather than make costly upgrades.
Vista's failures have set the stage for an ever bigger
replacement cycle this time around. Companies of all shapes and
sizes that didn't make the leap to Vista are still relying on aging
Windows XP systems. Hundreds of millions of outdated PCs worldwide
need upgrades. We predict Windows 7 will be just the right fuse to
spark an explosion in pent-up enterprise spending.
Who will profit most? Not Microsoft. Vendors that
supply components like semiconductors and hard drives will make the
My staff and I like the near-term prospects for one
particular PC maker that will be shipping 140,000 new computer
systems per day... plus a retailer whose shelves are already loaded

U.S. Treasury Sales Will Collapse, Ending the
Dollar's Reign as the
World's Reserve Currency
| Who owns
It might not be who you think. You have to
go all the way back to the American Revolution (when foreign
supporters like France bought our war bonds), to find so
much U.S. debt held by foreigners.
In 1970, foreigners held just 3.8% of U.S. federal
debt. They now own 27% (and 48% of U.S. Treasuries).
China is the largest holder of U.S. debt. It holds more
than $800 billion in U.S. treasuries -- 11% of the total. They see what
is happening in Washington and they're nervous. China is calling
loudly for the creation of a new reserve currency. So is Russia.
Meanwhile, we're spending money we don't have.
Our budget deficit is 13% of GDP. That's twice as big as our
next-largest deficit since World War II.
Plus we're on the hook for $100
trillion in future payments for Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid, and government pensions.
Guess what? Federal tax receipts come to $2.4 trillion
a year. How are we going to pay $100 trillion without massive tax
increases... defaulting on the government's promises... or both?
None of which is exactly bullish for the future of the dollar as the
world's safe-haven reserve currency.
exporters like China and India focus on domestic
consumption to replace sliding sales to the U.S., demand
for our debt will dry up... and the days of the U.S.
dollar as the world's reserve currency will be numbered.
To see how to profit from this mega-shift read on...
Best Currency Play of 2010
be clear: The U.S. dollar will continue to plummet in 2010.
Currencies thrive on a positive balance of trade. But
the U.S. is by far the world's largest debtor nation. Foreign central
banks are ditching the dollar at a historic rate. Only 37% of their
new foreign exchange holdings now go into greenbacks. (Historically,
it's been the exact inverse, with 63% of new reserves going into
What are they using to replace the dollar? The euro and
yen. The two currencies account for almost all of the new non-dollar
Think about how poorly that speaks of the dollar. Even
the euro -- the currency of a bitterly divided union of nations -- and the
yen -- the currency of a country that's been in recession for a decade
–are now both more attractive than the dollar.
We think the dollar will remain under selling pressure
for the next several years. Nothing out of Washington inspires
confidence otherwise. Especially our all time-record budget
deficit -- the highest of any nation in recorded history.
Rather than bemoaning the fate of the dollar, we plan
on making money from it. Sure, the euro and yen will continue to
rally as the world pulls reserves away from the dollar. But our
favorite currency play right now might surprise you: it's the
DOLLAR HISTORY SINCE 1973
This under-the-radar currency is a perfect safe haven.
It just might be the best currency in the world.
I have been bullish on Norway for several years now.
The reason is simple: what is good for oil is good for Norway.
Norway is a fiscal beacon: it actually has a budget
surplus -- in contrast to the deepening deficits in the U.S., Europe
and Japan. And its positive trade balance of 5% per cent of GDP is
the biggest in the industrialized world. (Which explains why the
cost for insurance against a default by the Norwegian government is
the lowest of the world's ten most-traded currencies.)
If you're worried about inflation, you need a
commodity-based currency like the krone that rises in tandem with
raw material prices. With our bullish outlook for oil we expect the
krone to steadily appreciate for at least the coming year.
In Hottest Investment Opportunities for 2010 we'll show
you how to double, triple or even quadruple your money in only two
months if the Norwegain krone rises five cents against our
greenback. This is highly likely in the coming year, as skittish
investors continue to flock to the safety of commodity-backed
currencies. With the investment we recommend you know your risk in
advance and you cannot lose more than you put up initially.
Most Surprising Economic Story of 2010 -- Marijuana
California is in serious trouble. It has the lowest credit rating of
any state and record 12.2% unemployment.
|| Its budget deficit is now $15 billion and is expected
to reach $42 billion next year. While many states face budget
shortfalls, only California's is more than one-third of its general
fund. The state is so short on cash that it paid bills with IOUs
from June through September. Its credit rating has been downgraded
to just two notches above junk-bond status.
But an unlikely white knight could gallop in to save
California's economy: marijuana.
A bill to legalize pot for adults is before the
California legislature. The bill would regulate the cultivation of
marijuana and impose a $50 per ounce fee on sales.
By legalizing and taxing pot the state would reap huge
new revenues: $2 billion a year. Pot is California's biggest cash
crop, worth $14 billion a year. Vegetables are a distant second,
taking in $5.7 billion. California's famous grapes generate just
But instead of getting a cut of its #1 business, the
state now spends money it doesn't have trying to shut down the
industry and jailing its users.
Next year Californians
will vote to do a 180-degree about-face on the pot war, by
legalizing marijuana statewide. Recent polls show that 60% of voters
might approve the change. (In fact, Oakland already taxes cannabis
sales, to the tune of $1 million a year.)
How can investors profit from California's bold move?
With a small pharma that has applied to the FDA for fast-track
approval of its marijuana-based medicine to fight swine flu.
The company is at the forefront of medical marijuana R&D. It is mission is to
create cannabis-based medicines to fight disease and maintain

inflammatory immune responses, reduce mortality rates and allow
infected individuals to develop a strong immunity upon recovery.

Surprise Energy Play of the Decade:
Tiny Nuclear Power Plants Buried In Your Backyard
There's no doubt among rational analysts that the safest, cheapest
and cleanest form of energy is nuclear.
But the future of nuclear energy doesn't lie in large, gigawatt-size plants. It lies in very small ones, the size of a
backyard hot tub, that can be delivered on the back of a truck.
These plants can be buried and run maintenance-free for
up to 10 years, and produce enough electricity to power 20,000
homes. At about $25 million each, any town big enough for a Wal-Mart
could have an almost infinite supply of cheap power.
These small, portable and self-contained "nuclear
batteries" are ideal for remote locations disconnected from the
power grid. You can't have a Chernobyl because there are no moving
parts. And it doesn't use enriched uranium. Nobody will steal it
because it is literally too hot to handle. It would be like stealing
a barbecue with your bare hands.
The technology was developed by the government's
nuclear labs at Los Alamos. It has been licensed to a company
that already has orders and will be in production in 2013.
Amazingly, this is not widely known. There has been little press
coverage. So the most striking innovation in the energy field in
decades will hit the general public out of left field.

the predictions and investment opportunities I've mentioned here,

StreetAuthority Market Advisor is unlike any other
financial advisory letter you've ever seen. What makes it so
Two Reasons Why
StreetAuthority Market Advisor Is Unique
We Aim for Spectacular Gains (by Being Defiantly Contrarian).
Despite all the rocket scientists and supercomputers on Wall Street,
the best way to get rich from investing is the same low-tech
approach that applied a century ago: to take advantage of ''mob
mentality.'' That means buying when the crowd is selling (when
bargains are plentiful), and selling when the crowd is buying (when
you can reap huge gains).
If you buy the same investments as everyone else,
you're going to have the same performance as other people -- which
is always mediocre. This is why Market Advisor is defiantly
It's an approach that has served us well. For example,
every year I send my Market Advisor subscribers a confidential
report on my favorite investing ideas for the upcoming year.
While unpopular and out of fashion with most investors,
these picks have beaten the market in six out of seven years. By
searching out unloved contrarian stocks with strong catalysts behind
them, I've generated a compound return of +88.5% versus just +25.6%
for the S&P 500.
Return of My
"Top Ten" Picks
We Never Buy a Stock Without a Firm Catalyst in Mind. The
secret to making money in stocks isn't just finding a great company.
Microsoft is a great company that hasn't gone anywhere in years.
Ditto for GE , Pfizer and Intel. All these flagship stocks are
trading lower than they were 10 years ago.
The secret is finding great companies that are poised
to benefit from a future catalyst.
Just as chemical catalysts speed reactions between
substances... stock catalysts create a dramatic impact on a
company's fortunes... and trigger a sudden rush into its stock.
Catalysts come in all shapes and sizes. But here are
three of the biggest ones I am constantly on the lookout for:
A surprise takeover announcement -- Like we saw
with our own position in Wrigley. When Mars made a takeover offer
our shares jumped +23% in a single day. (We made a total of +78% on
that one in less than two years.)
A killer new product -- Like the iPod, which
rescued Apple from being a marginal computer company... added tens
of billions of dollars to the firm's market cap... and catapulted
its stock from $9 to nearly $200.
Radically new business conditions -- Like the
rush into Caterpillar stock when the bull market in commodities
kicked off five years ago and triggered a seller's market for its
products. This major new catalyst for Caterpillar pushed up its
revenue by +100%, its profit by +220%, and its stock price by over
How We Find Stocks With Strong Catalysts
help me pinpoint stocks with the most powerful catalysts behind
them, I've developed my own Catalyst Rating System. This tool helps
me quantify the real strength behind a stock, rather than
just going by a hunch that ''things look good'' for it.
These catalyst-driven picks have outperformed the
market by a long shot. In fact, my ''Beat the S&P'' Portfolio has
returned six times as much as the S&P 500 .
The average total return of every recommendation in the
six years since we started this portfolio in May, 2003 is +91.3%.
Meanwhile the S&P 500 is up +14.0%.
Because it works so well, I've made my Catalyst Rating
System the backbone of my newsletter. This rating system is behind
all my investment decisions. And the only place you'll find it is in
In fact, StreetAuthority Market Advisor is the only
service combining a strict contrarian discipline with catalyst
investing. So if you want to know which securities have the
strongest catalysts on the market today, there's no other place to

Opportunities We're Keeping an Eye on...
Near Canada's Arctic Circle, in weather that can freeze
human flesh in seconds, an intrepid diamond driller is
hoping to repeat a massive strike made nearby 17 years ago.
Investing doesn't get any riskier than this, but the company
has delivered the goods before: The last time it found
diamonds, its stock exploded 118-to-1, turning $10,000 into
Civil war in The Congo may completely cut off the outside
world's supply of cobalt. This scarce metal is urgently
needed for America's defense effort. (It is virtually
impossible to make a jet-fighter engine without this
high-strength alloy agent.) Cobalt prices are likely to
soar, racking up windfall profits for farsighted investors.
A tiny electronic ID device, virtually undetectable when
embedded under the skin, could hit the market in 2010.
Driven by homeland-security concerns -- and because it is
more convenient, secure and accurate than outmoded means of
personal identification -- sales may soar and make its early
Commercial space flights might become available to the
public by 2013. Hundreds of space tourists will spend
weekends in orbital hotels.
In a desperate attempt to shore up a falling dollar, the
U.S. government might impose currency controls. Getting
assets out of the country would become borderline
impossible. There will be only one sure way left to protect
A new way to cash in on nanotechnology may make early
investors rich. This is an opportunity of enormous
proportions, similar to cellular in 1985. Some analysts are
calling this the ''opportunity of the century.''
A classic turnaround play might occur in a small medical
company that was blindsided by the FDA in June. Its stock
plunged -70% overnight. The firm is now meeting with the
agency to defend its product. If the FDA reverses its stance
the stock could bounce back from $5 to $20, for an instant
Apple will team up with either Ford or GM to produce the
first iCar -- and dealers won't be able to keep them on the
lots. The car will integrate iPod music and video. Americans
spend a lot of time in their cars and will love bringing
their entertainment along with them.
A cell phone will hit the market that can work on nothing
but water. Powered by a micro fuel cell and hydrogen
generator, all you'll need to do is add water and you're
good to go. Down the road, the same company will make fuel
cell batteries that can power anything you can use in your
pocket (cell phone, radio, mp3 player, etc).
None of these things will happen overnight. And they are all
risky speculations... so don't bet your mortgage money on
them. But they are the sort of opportunities that create
stock-market fortunes. So you can bet my staff and I are
keeping an eye on all of them. And when it's time to strike,
you'll get the word in StreetAuthority Market Advisor.
