It is no secret that over the last few years technology has allowed people to make money in the stock market at levels we have never seen before. Over the next few years when you add cryptocurrency and the Metaverse into the mix with technology, the wealth generating opportunities are going to be beyond what we could have ever comprehended.
First, it means that today it takes less time than ever before to generate massive wealth.
Over the last few decades, for example, it took, on average, about 20 years for the typical Fortune 500 company to reach a market capitalization of $1 billion.
But then, in 1998, Google reached a $1 billion market value in just eight years. This was considered incredible and nearly impossible at the time.
But this rate of growth and mass adoption is accelerating.
By 2004, Facebook became a billion-dollar company in just five years.
Then in 2009, Uber became a billion-dollar company in just three years.
And in 2012, virtual reality firm Oculus did it in under two years.
The chart below shows the amount of time it took for companies to hit a billion-dollar market cap.
As you can see, it’s taking less and less time to generate incredible wealth, in large part because of the Law of Accelerating Returns.
And investors are enjoying the benefits.
Like I said, in just the past three years, more than 120 technology companies have returned 100% gains or more to investors.
So the time it takes for people to accumulate massive wealth is getting “compressed.”
New companies and new technologies can scale faster than ever before (making some people rich, more quickly, than ever before).
Did you know, for example, that Barron’s estimates the number of millionaires created by bitcoin (the internet’s new type of digital money), is somewhere between 20,000 and 200,000?
And it all happened in just a few short years.
Uber started in an apartment in 2009, not too far away from where I am today… and within just seven years, they were booking more rides than the entire U.S. taxi industry… combined!
Think about that…
The whole thing happened in just seven years… starting in an apartment building!
Never before in human history has a technology created more wealth, more quickly, than this!
But there’s a flipside to this equation…
Increasing technological power and adoption also means companies can collapse faster than ever too.
As Apple’s iPhone dominated the smartphone market, the losing competitor (Blackberry) saw its share price plummet more than 90% in a very short period of time.
Remember, I said the Law of Accelerating Returns causes two critical changes in our society.
First, it enables companies to grow more quickly than ever before.
But it also explains what is becoming a huge problem in our society…
#2. More Money, Concentrated in Fewer Hands
Andrew Yang, who is running to become New York City’s mayor and was consulted by the Trump administration during the original Covid-19 stimulus efforts, made headlines when he pointed out the top 1% of the U.S. population accrued 52% of the real income growth in America since 2009.
But why is this happening?
The answer is simple and obvious to anyone who understands what we’ve been talking about…
Today, the acceleration of our technological progress allows companies to operate with just a fraction of the number of employees businesses used to require.
In other words, wealth is being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands.
Just consider these incredible numbers…
Back in 1964, AT&T had more than 750,000 employees…
But in 2017, Google was a bigger and far richer company than AT&T with 92% fewer employees sharing the wealth.
Or look at the old-school company, Hilton Hotels…
It has about 170,000 employees… which helped generate about $9 billion in revenue last year. That’s about $53,000 per employee.
But I estimate tech upstart Airbnb generates five times more money per employee than Hilton!
Soon, Airbnb will be making more money than Hilton Hotels… but will most likely do it with a 90% or more reduction in labor.
In 2012, IBM had more than 400,000 employees… but today Microsoft has one-third that number of employees and makes about $50 billion more dollars per year.
Plus, people who invested in Microsoft back in 2000 made about 10 times more in gains than those who invested in IBM.
Back in 1989, Kodak had about 145,000 employees… Today Snapchat has just 1,800 employees.
You get the point…
The best new companies of today simply don’t need many people compared to companies from a decade or two ago—so the number of great jobs is decreasing while the pay for these employees who do get jobs is radically soaring!
This is why the wealth gap gets wider and wider every single year.
This is why the town of Atherton, which is located in the heart of America’s technology hub, Silicon Valley, is the most expensive ZIP code in the nation. It’s become an exclusive enclave for folks who have made vast fortunes in the technology space.
Again, businesses are making money faster than ever… and it’s being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands.
And it’s happening everywhere, in every industry…
Even in “boring” industries like banking…
You’ve probably never heard of a company called Annaly.
It has just 170 employees and has used innovative technologies in modern finance to generate about $13 million in revenue per employee!
That means Annaly generates about 25 times as much money per employee as Bank of America.
But again, most Americans are completely missing out on how this is all unfolding.
This is why I’m here in what often tops the list of the wealthiest ZIP code in America, 94027, located near the heart of America’s technological center, in Silicon Valley.
I’m going to make sure you are on the right side of this trend.
It’s actually a lot easier than you might think…
I Bet You’ve Never Heard of Any
of These Moneymakers Before…
One of the most important things you have to remember about the Law of Accelerating Returns… and the growing wealth gap… is that disruptions ALWAYS happen from the outside.
What I mean by that is, it’s NEVER the big, established companies that disrupt entire industries, and make people rich, in a very short amount of time.
Neither Motorola nor Nokia developed the smartphone—but they could have.
Netflix wasn’t invented by Blockbuster… but it could have been.
Amazon wasn’t invented by Barnes & Noble. TV networks did not come up with YouTube, Visa didn’t create PayPal, and hotel chains did not come up with Airbnb.
Again: It’s ALWAYS the small “outsider companies” that disrupt the status quo, and make a small group of investors rich.
You simply must learn how to get in on these ideas and the companies that are shaking up entire industries, if you want to capture the biggest gains in the market today.
I can show you literally dozens of examples of how this is playing out in the real world.
For example, have you heard of a company called Paycom?
It automates a lot of human resource tasks for other companies, such as recruiting, payroll, etc. It eliminates HR jobs, cuts costs… and is making people rich.
The company’s revenue went up nearly 300% between 2014 and 2018… and investors made more than 1,000% on the stock between roughly 2016 and today.
Or how about a company called Paysign? It helps companies and even government agencies process payments quickly and easily.
Since 2016, the company has been growing annual revenue by more than 50% each year… and investors have made more than 4,000% gains since the start of 2016.
Oh… and get this, it has just 64 employees.
Again—these companies grow faster than ever before, and because of technological advances, they don’t need many employees to do it.
This is why disruptive tech firms are transforming entire industries, practically overnight, and making investors rich:
- A company called Trade Desk automates how companies place ads online… It’s up more than 1,200% in the past three years.
- Okta is an internet cloud security firm, which helps businesses keep their data safe and private. It’s been growing about 55% a year for the past three years, and investors have made more than 650% over that timeframe.
- Alteryx is a company that helps other businesses analyze their data and better understand their customers. It’s the best at what it does in this space… It’s been growing about 66% a year…. And investors have made nearly 700% gains since 2015.
- RingCentral is a tech business that is revolutionizing the ways companies use telephones, for customer service, conference calls, meetings, and more. It is growing more than 34% a year and investors have made about 700% in the past three years.
- Atlassian is a company that makes software to help employees collaborate online, on various projects. In my company, we’ve used Atlassian and some of the other companies mentioned here… Anyone who’s owned Atlassian over the past four years has made about six times his or her money.
The list goes on, and on, and on.
Odds are, most Americans have never heard of any of these companies, but they are revolutionizing the way we use technology… they are growing incredibly fast… and they are making people rich.
At the same time, they are eliminating thousands of jobs… and are widening the wealth gap in America today.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing you or I can do about this trend, even if we wanted to.
All we can do is to make sure we’re on the right side of it.
And don’t worry, you haven’t missed out. The good news is that there are a dozen or more of these fast-growing tech firms emerging every year.
With all the incredible advances in 5G, data analytics, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, cryptocurrencies, virtual reality, financial technology (fintech), blockchain, the Internet of Things, and energy storage, it’s 100% guaranteed that there will continually be massive opportunities every year… for many years come.
There is no doubt in my mind: The next few years will be the greatest period ever to be a technology investor. There will be more disruption in the next 20 years than in the previous 80 years combined.
And with all that disruption comes incredible opportunity.
I promise you: This is most important moneymaking trend in the world today—and if you miss out, you are going to miss nearly all the biggest gains.
And… the longer you wait to get in on it, the less money you’re going to make… and the further you’re going to fall behind.
In fact, me show you my favorite investment in the world right now… it’s a stock I can just about guarantee you’ve never heard of… but it’s an incredible deal, with enormous potential.

One of my favorite 5G plays is Akamai — ticker symbol AKAM.
Akamai is going to be a big 5G winner for two reasons:
First—it’s the leader in edge computing.
The “edge” is the part of the internet that’s closest to end users—it’s the “last mile.”
The edge plays a critical role.
It’s the link between the big remote data centers at the core of the internet that most people think of as “the cloud”…
And the billions of devices that are in homes, offices, and mobile networks.
As Akamai’s CEO says…
“[The edge is important because it’s] where all the users are. [It’s] where all the devices are and it’s where most of the bandwidth is. It’s also where most of the attackers and bots are, so it’s where your defenses need to be. The edge will become even more important in the future since it’s where 5G will be.”
And Akamai is the undisputed master of the edge—among the largest global providers of edge services.
It carries as much as 30% of ALL web traffic—an astounding figure in today’s world.
That’s a market share like you see with dominant players like Netflix in streaming video or Ford in U.S. truck sales.
As edge computing ramps up alongside 5G—with new applications, new services, new demands—Akamai will be there providing those services and banking huge revenues.
Being a leader in edge computing doesn’t matter much if your network isn’t secure.
And Akamai has quietly become a leader in every area of network cybersecurity you can name: DDoS prevention, web app firewalls, bot management… you name it.
As 5G gets built out and more of our lives move online, the need for secure networks only gets more intense.
I think Akamai is going to be a big winner thanks to its lead in this area.
But here’s the thing that really has me interested in this company is that I can imagine most investors are still focusing only on Akamai’s position as an edge computing provider.
They’re totally missing how fast the cybersecurity part of its business is growing.
That tremendous growth (33% a year for the last 5 years) means there will likely be a ton of positive earnings surprises in Akamai’s future.
But beyond the growth, investors just aren’t seeing the bigger picture here.
By one measure, two of Akamai’s closest competitors in cloud security are 10 times more expensive than Akamai!
That’s the kind of situation that I love… and it’s just like scenarios that produced some of my biggest winners.
Akamai will likely deliver outstanding earnings growth over the coming quarters… and could continue to produce robust results for several years, as the 5G boom sweeps across the globe.
In short, Akamai offers a play on one of the most disruptive technological advancements in decades.
I expect this stock to produce sizeable gains over the next few years.
But Akamai is not the only fast-growing 5G play on my radar.
I’m also recommending a select group of other 5G plays that could deliver even better gains.
In addition, I’ve been recommending a few targeted plays in the EV and energy storage sectors. I’d love to reveal those to you as well.
There’s simply never been a better time to invest in disruptive, fast-growing tech companies!
If you want to see substantial gains, there are a number of smaller companies you should consider buying right away.
Let me show you just a few of the investments that are critical for you to learn about and get in on today…
Watch This—It’s the Next Evolution
in Online Shopping
One of the biggest trends in the world today is retail automation.
In other words: The process of automating how products you buy online get to your front door.
This is Amazon’s specialty, of course, but there are lots of other companies that are way more advanced than Amazon that are transforming entire industries.
They use an automated process involving software, robotics, and other logistical technologies, to get products delivered directly to your home, without much human involvement.
And these companies are going to radically change the way we shop over the next few years.
For example, there’s a company that’s a world leader in online-only grocery shopping.
No, not the “pay and pick up” program you see at places like Whole Foods, Target, and your local grocery store.
This is something radically different.
It has more than 60 technology patents already granted, has applied for 100 more patents last year… and has built the most advanced automated robotic shopping system on the planet.
Its technology can track your grocery order, and get it ready for delivery with almost no human effort.
The company’s robotic warehouses look nothing like anything you’ve ever seen. It’s amazing, and it’s the future of grocery shopping!
And get this: This revolutionary tech company just signed a deal with largest grocery store chain in the U.S. and the largest grocery store chain in the world.
Over the next two to three years, it is going to revolutionize how groceries get to your home. The first of its 20 new high-tech grocery delivery warehouses will open soon in Ohio.
This company already has more than 700,000 customers worldwide, and I project they will soon have 10 or 20 or even 100 times that amount.
Hardly any regular investors know about this company today—but in a few years, it will be a household name.
Today you can get in on the ground floor—and make a fortune as this inevitable trend plays out.
It’s still very early…
In the U.S., only about 10% of grocery shopping is done online. These numbers are going to double in the next year or so… then double again… and again.
Of course, this trend involves more than just groceries…
Eventually, this company will transform all of retail shopping. It is already working with pet supply stores… home stores… and beauty/makeup retailers.
Yes, this disruptive technology company is going to contribute to the widening wealth gap in America.
But there’s absolutely nothing you or I can do about this trend except to embrace it.
It is inevitable. It is the future. And all you can do is either be on the right side or wrong side of this trend.
The choice is up to you.
Here’s another investment you should take advantage of right now…
Here’s How to Get Really
Rich in the Next Few Years
It’s no secret that one of the great innovations of our lifetimes is going to be self-driving cars and trucks.
Sure… rolling out all these vehicles will take a few years.
But remember, just like the cellphone example I told you about earlier, the experts ALWAYS overestimate how long a technology trend like this will take.
And the simple truth is: The money to be made on this inevitable trend starts now!
But don’t just take my word for it…
Jeff Bezos, of Amazon, just placed an order for 100,000 vans that will ultimately drive themselves.
Waymo (Google’s driverless car unit) just ordered 62,000 driverless minivans from Fiat Chrysler.
The company Aptiv has teamed up with Lyft to log 50,000 successful autonomous taxi rides in Las Vegas. BMW plans to have a self-driving car on the road by 2021.
There are literally trillions of investment dollars pouring into this trend.
But most people don’t know that there’s one best way, by far, to play it.
You see, there’s a technology company most Americans have never heard of, which has successfully logged more than one million miles of autonomous driving.
And it has developed the platform standard that will be in more autonomous vehicles than any other.
Already, this firm has partnered with nearly all of the top car companies in the world, including: BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Jaguar, Toyota, Mercedes, Volvo, and Volkswagen … and the best technology companies in the world, like Microsoft, Nvidia, and Intel.
The incredible thing about this company is that not only have few Americans heard of it, it’s also one of the best investment bargains in the world—it’s ridiculously cheap.
You can buy this company today, hold it for years to come… and potentially make 10 times your money over the long term.
This investment reminds me very much of another tech investment I made in cell phone technology many years back.
At the time, two different cellphone network standards (GSM and CDMA) were fighting for supremacy. GSM was the clear frontrunner, and I recommended a company called Ericsson to take advantage of it.
My recommendation soared as much as 5,000% in the years to come.
Something similar is happening today with autonomous driver platforms—although few Americans know about it. You have a chance to get in early and make obscene profits in the years ahead.
Again… yes… this new technology will definitely contribute to the growing wealth gap in America.
Today, there are about 3.5 million truck drivers in America today and millions of folks who drive cars for a living. (Most people don’t know that driving a truck is the most popular job in more than half of U.S. states—29 in all.)
But the reality is, in the years to come, more and more of these folks are going to lose their jobs. And again, there’s nothing you can do or should try to do to stop this trend.
It is inevitable.
But you can certainly make sure your money is positioned properly. I’ve just written up all of the details on the two investments I just told you about, and have put everything you need to know in a brand-new special report.
Let me show you how to get started… and the important steps you must make now to get the biggest gains of the next few years… and avoid the biggest losses…
Take These 3 Steps Now:
There are three simple steps you absolutely must take today to put you on the right side of this trend, going forward.
Here’s what I strongly recommend…
First, you need to make sure you don’t own the companies using yesterday’s technology to compete in today’s world… or companies that are trying to hang on to an outdated business model, about to be hit hard by today’s most disruptive firms.
For example, if you own a traditional “brick-and-mortar” store like Bed Bath & Beyond, instead of the online retailer Wayfair, you are making a huge mistake. Look at this revenue chart of the past five years…
If you own any of the traditional electric utility companies instead of the best companies that are developing “smart” residential energy storage technologies, again… you are making a huge mistake and missing out on huge gains.
Look at the sales growth of Southern California Edison, a utility where I live, compared to SolarEdge, the leading supplier of microinverters for residential solar systems…
In every sector, there are new companies taking advantage of new technologies, where investors are getting rich… and completely disrupting the status quo.
Here’s a chart of the past five years of growth comparing traditional payment processors like Bank of America and Wells Fargo to the growth of the new technology disruptor in the same space, Square… It’s just no contest…
I’m sure you get the point.
So Step #1 is to purge your portfolio of the companies being disrupted by the new technological innovators.
You simply can’t afford to hold these stocks in your portfolio, any longer.
Today there are so many ticking time bombs in so many people’s portfolios, because of bad business structures… heavy debt loads… and completely outdated business models that are being disrupted by fast-moving and creative, technological startups.
If you own doomed firms like these you are all but guaranteed to miss out on the biggest gains of the years to come.
