Today I want to share with you one of the most important investing developments we've ever discovered.
It concerns a small handful of companies that can predict the future and a way for you to get in on what analysts say is a 5,000% growth trend that could last until 2020.
Here's what's going on...
Her track record is one of the best I've ever seen. For over 20 years now, her recommendations have seen average returns around 28%. She's also helped "regular" folks like you and me score gains of...
66% in 9 months...
175% in 3 months...
169% gains in 6 months...
And many, many more.
I bring this up because Nancy just joined our sister site, InvestingAnswers.com. She's the Chief Investment Strategist for a brand new advisory called Five-Star Stocks. And I have to say, she's starting off with a bang.
As you'll see, she's come across an opportunity that I can practically guarantee you've never seen before.
I had a chance to chat with Nancy about this rare find, so I'll let her tell you exactly what she's found...
Bob: Nancy, I've been told that you say you've found a select group of companies that can "predict the future." What do you mean by that?
Nancy: I mean exactly that, Bob. I've uncovered a small handful of businesses that are oftentimes able to predict what's going to happen before it actually does -- and with amazing accuracy. They've proven to know things like whether we're headed for inflation or deflation, if an economic downturn is looming, or even if a retail store is likely to beat earnings estimates.
Nancy: Absolutely. They've also been able to predict which books you'll read, which toaster you'll buy, whether or not a seemingly healthy person has diabetes... they can even know if you're telling a lie with up to 82% accuracy.
Bob: Can you tell us how it works?
Nancy: Sure. In simple terms, these companies have been able to leverage today's rapidly developing technology to create what I like to call "prediction plants" -- which are secret, off-the-radar facilities specifically designed to produce these forecasts.
Bob: What do you mean, "off-the-radar"?
Nancy: Most of these buildings are in the middle of nowhere, very small towns in places most folks have never heard of.
They don't have company logos on them, and many of the companies that own them are very hush-hush about what goes on inside. City officials have to sign all sorts of confidentiality agreements, and sometimes employees even have to pass a retina scan to enter.
But what we do know is that these plants are integral in predicting future events. Based on the work and research being done inside, companies are able to predict things like when a person will go to the grocery store and how much money he'll spend.
What's more, the companies behind these "prediction plants" have used them to their investors' advantage. The first companies to open these plants have seen 10-year stock gains of 650%... 884%... and one is even up as much as 957% over that period.
But I don't think all the gains are behind them. Independent research firms are saying that they're in the early stages of a 5,000% growth phase that's expected to last until 2020. And many of these companies have growth catalysts that could double or triple their share prices in the next few years.
Bob: Could you give us the name of one of these companies?
I can't give away any of my favorite recommendations right now because I'm still finalizing my research. But I can tell you one company that is heavily invested in this area is none other than $390 billion tech giant Google (Nasdaq: GOOG).
In fact, Google was the company that made these entire "prediction plants" possible. Not only did they develop the necessary technology, they were the first to realize that by looking at certain social and economic patterns you could anticipate specific future events. As a result, Google has become one of the primary leaders in this field. And given the company's drive to revolutionize markets, it will likely remain one of the driving forces in the industry.
Bob: How did you learn about these "prediction plants" and the company's behind them?
Nancy: I found them when I was doing some routine research for Five-Star Stocks -- my newest premium newsletter dedicated solely to finding the markets highest quality stocks, or "five-star stocks" as I like to call them.
Bob: Can you elaborate?
Nancy: Sure. See, whenever I'm searching for a "five star stock," I always look for two things. The first thing I look for is a big trend that's sweeping the market. Then I match that up with a stock that looks great even without that trend.
In other words, instead of solely using either a "top-down" approach (investing in stocks because you think they will benefit from a big economic trend) or a "bottom-up" approach (investing in stocks you think the market has overlooked), I use a combination of both.
That said, one of the biggest trends I've been following lately is the rising surge in supercomputers. Specifically, I noticed companies like Google, Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) were spending billions of dollars to acquire new computer technology that is light years ahead in terms of computational ability. According to Oren Etzioni -- a Harvard grad who's made a career out of selling this technology -- these computers can do things that "would have been impossible" just a few years ago.
As I dove further into these acquisitions, I noticed these computers were being stored in big, secret warehouses. Some can't even be found on Google Maps, and nearly all of them are surrounded by barbed wire fences and armed guards.
As it turns out, the big tech companies that owned them had been stockpiling supercomputers in these warehouses for the sole purpose of making predictions. They have found a way to use these computers, with a special "black box" formula, to input specific information and accurately predict the outcome of certain future events.
Imagine how much money could be made (or saved) with these predictive capabilities. Marketing firms could increase ad revenue by targeting precise ad placement, airlines could forecast flight delays so air traffic can be rerouted without untimely delays, hospitals could even predict who will get breast cancer and who won't out of any population. The opportunity these predictive capabilities have created is one of the biggest investment trends I've found today. It's also the one I think will make investors the most money.
Bob: Ok, so you're clearly bullish on this trend. Would you recommend "big tech" as the best way to invest?
Nancy: As I said earlier, nearly all the big tech companies like Google, IBM and Oracle have invested in these "prediction plants." As the largest players in the industry, they're naturally going to be at least somewhat involved in any new and developing technology -- especially when it has implications of this magnitude.
But while I like that big tech is working in this area, investing in these companies is not the only way for people to profit... by a long-shot.
I recommend investors buy the "other guys" -- the businesses whose bottom lines will be most impacted by this futuristic technology. These are the companies with a stranglehold on their markets. They look good even without the catalyst this new technology provides. But these prediction plants could soon drive them to double- and triple-digit gains.
