The How-To Guide For Would-Be Stock Millionaires

Dear Opportunistic Investor,

Millionaire-maker opportunities pop up all of the time in the stock market.

But racking up life-changing wins is near impossible if you don't know where to look.

To uncover the time-tested tactics successful investors are using, we only need to look back at how one respected leader amassed his wealth.

See, Microsoft founder Bill Gates built his entire $76.4 billion fortune off of one basic concept.  

And many folks similar to you and me have become millionaires merely by spotting it.

But before you can harness its power, we have to go back to a time when Bill Gates’s Microsoft wasn’t yet a Goliath.

As you are surely familiar, in the 1980’s, the personal computer became the must-have item for the home.

Back then, IBM dominated the market, even more so than today.

If you had invested $10,000 in IBM early on. You‘d be worth over $200,000 today! By anyone’s definition, 20 times your money is a great return.  

Still, those who understood what Bill Gates did blew these results out of the water.

In short, size matters. If you’re a big company riding a trend, you can do well -- but if you’re a smaller company exploiting a mega-trend, you can catapult into the big leagues.

And that’s just what Bill Gates did with Microsoft a couple decades ago.

Back in 1990, IBM was already a big company. Intel was smaller. And Microsoft was smaller still. But all three were riding the personal computing mega-trend with IBM supplying the computers, Intel the chips inside, and Microsoft the operating system.

As you can see below, all three did well but it was the smallest one that made investors rich, multiplying a $10,000 investment into over $6,000,000 today:

Like personal computers in 1990, a current opportunity could build immense fortunes for investors savvy enough to know which stocks to buy.

See, smartphones are today’s gold mine.

And just like IBM in 1990, the leading smartphone company – Apple -- may be worth a look today. But also like Microsoft back then, it’s the under-the-radar smaller companies exploiting this trend that truly have the chance to explode in value in the future.

In fact, our analysts have identified one such company that’s riding the runaway success of Apple’s iPhone all the way to the bank… and it’s just 1/30th the size of Apple today.

If you missed out on Microsoft’s meteoric rise, this is your second chance to get in on a generation-defining trend – one that Goldman Sachs estimates will be worth $298 billion!

Bill Gates rode the last mega-trend to become one of the richest men in the world. Surely it's worth your time to learn more about one stock that's poised to ride the next tech revolution.

Here's to you and your family's wealth,
