It's perhaps the most hotly-anticipated, controversial, thought-provoking thing we do as a company.

It could also be the most profitable thing you read all year.

I'm talking about our annual predictions report.

Each year, the research team behind our Game-Changing Stocks newsletter releases a set of investment predictions for the coming year. And because they challenge conventional wisdom so strongly, these annual forecasts are invariably the most talked-about market calls we publish all year.

I'm talking about the kinds of bold predictions and investing ideas you won't find anywhere else. That's because, to put it quite frankly, by the time you hear about these ideas in the mainstream financial media, it'll be too late. The big gains will have already been made.

And while we don't pretend to have a crystal ball, readers who have followed our predictions in the past have seen gains of 310%, 452%, 569% and more.

I want to give you a taste of some of this year's predictions in a moment. But first, I want to talk about why we do this and why we think it's so important.

They Told Us We Were "Crazy"
As you know, StreetAuthority is in the business of publishing financial newsletters. That means we live and die by our subscription revenues. And trust me, you don't survive in this business for long unless your ideas make money for your customers.

Now, if we were "smart," we would play it safe and tell you to about investment ideas everybody already knows about -- you know, the kinds of things you'll hear about on CNBC or The Wall Street Journal.

But that's just not our style.

That's why each year we bring together a team to bounce ideas off each other, and then research them thoroughly. We leave no stone unturned. The more unorthodox, the better...

For example, one of our first prediction reports told readers about "an opportunity of enormous proportions" in the nanotech industry. The game-changing stock we pinpointed in that report shot up 293%.

The next year, we said "the best sci-fi speculation of the year" would be a powerful new technology called "RFID" and told readers about three key companies to watch. We named a stock we expected to skyrocket… and it surged 310% within the year.

In 2012, we told readers about the upcoming mobile payments revolution, predicting Apple's entry into the market before anyone else. Of course, we said Apple was a great buy -- but the unknown winner was a company that went on to deliver 452% gains.

Then, in 2014, we told investors about an up-and-coming drug developer with triple-digit potential written all over it. Sure enough, the following year saw the stock soar 189%.

In 2016, we highlighted a small pharmaceutical firm working on a treatment for the Zika vicus that we said had "triple-digit" potential. That stock shot up 189% within a year.

Not to mention, 8 out of our 9 recommendations for 2017 are in the black. In fact, at last count, they've gained about 67% as a group.

These are just a few examples of the gains this report has made for readers who were willing to go out on a limb and listen to what we had to say.

A Rapidly Changing World Means More Opportunities For Gains
Gains like these are exactly what we're aiming for over at Game-Changing Stocks. To put it simply, our goal is to uncover select opportunities that could become life-changing investments.

Of course, to identify a groundbreaking idea, you have to be forward thinking. But in order to do that, sometimes it's worth remembering just how much innovation has taken place over the past few years...

For example, who would have thought just 10 years ago most of us would have tiny computers in our pocket or purse at nearly every waking moment -- devices capable of accessing virtually all of the world's knowledge? Needless to say, early investors in Apple came out alright on that game-changer.

At its peak 12 years ago, Blockbuster consisted of more than 8,000 stores nationwide. Six years later, the ubiquitous company filed for bankruptcy protection. The culprit? A tiny upstart called Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX), which had a better idea.

Remember the shopping mall? They haven't built a major enclosed mall in the United States since 2006. Is it any coincidence that shares of online retailer Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) soared 460% since then?

The list goes on and on, but you get my point. We're in a brave new world... As innovation accelerates and technology advances each year, so too does the list of game-changing opportunities available to investors.

The important thing to remember is that most of us wouldn't have thought half of this was possible a little more than a decade ago.

Who knows what the future will hold?

Well, while we can't predict the future perfectly, we like to think we've got a pretty good idea.

That's why each year, we gather our collective resources at StreetAuthority and make these predictions. Our goal is to look beyond the day-to-day moves of the market. Our goal is to look ahead -- to what we like to call "the next big thing" that could change the world and make early investors a killing.

A Few Of Our "Crazy" Predictions
Most investors are lucky to notch a triple-digit gain every three or four years. But we think each and every one of the nine predictions in this year's report has triple-digit potential.

Of course, just as not every prediction we make will necessarily come true, and some of our picks may not pan out. That's just how it goes when you're looking for home runs. But I'd stack the record of Game-Changing Stocks up against any other advisory with a similar mission.

This year's predictions report could be our most profitable ever. I'll be diving into the specific predictions in more detail in future issues of StreetAuthority Daily, but here are just a few of predictions we're making in this year's report...

Prediction #1: 2019's Most Popular Sport Isn't What You Think...
Odds are you hadn't heard of this exploding industry before the last year or two... it's a "sports" phenomenon that's posting some astounding growth rates...

Revenue jumped 125% between 2015 and 2017, and it's projected to grow by 22% a year between 2018 and 2021. It's easily outpacing the single-digit growth rates of the NBA... Major League Baseball... and the almighty NFL.

With worldwide appeal and revenues that should become downright scary in the next few years, the sky is the limit for the white-hot field of Electronic Sports (eSports). We're not just talking about video games here... we're talking about video game extravaganzas -- full-fledged professional competitions every bit as intense as the playoffs for one of the "big four" leagues...

So where's the money in all this? Well, the dealings between the organizers, competitors, sponsors, and advertisers behind the mega-events make up the lion's share. And then there's the gaming video content (GVC)...

This is the online media platforms that pro players use to stream and upload highlight reels of their best performances. This footage helps pros amass a colossal public following and sponsorships.

The $5.3 billion that eSports and GVC generated in 2017 placed them ahead of Major League Soccer, Formula One Racing, and the NHL... In fact, they now stand just behind the NBA. And unlike the other pro sports, these eSports own their broadcast networks... Top eSports franchises like League of Legends and Overwatch have their games, league, and broadcasts all rolled into one package.

Look, I know it may sound a little strange to you. After all, this is something new and totally different. It's practically unthinkable for older generations. In fact, it's taken 30 years of tech development and shifting cultural mores to pull it off.

But when you have a new industry bolstered by breakthrough technology that's drawing as many viewers (or more) as traditional professional sports... filling out venues like Madison Square Garden on a regular basis... and elite performers commanding seven-figure winnings... you better pay attention. In fact, major corporate brands are already jumping on: GEICO, Nissan, MasterCard, HP, Intel, and others have become major sponsors.

This ultra-modern pastime spans language and borders… the only activity that comes close to this global appeal is soccer. It's just a matter of time before Electronic Sports cracks through the stratosphere and becomes a household name the world over... and we've trawled this sprawling space to find two upstart companies ready to capitalize on the incredible growth ahead...

Prediction #5: The U.S. Military Will Develop Futuristic, Special Ops "Body Suits" Using One of the Strangest Materials You've Ever Heard Of...
Ironman and Spiderman play great on the big screen. But as fantastic as it all seems, their gadgets and powers are becoming increasingly real.

While we've all heard of laser technology, electromagnetic pulse weapons, and some of the other smart weapons creeping onto today's battlefield, a tiny company in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is working on a development that sounds as if it could have come out of Tony Stark's laboratory.

It's called "spider silk technology."

Yes. This is actually a thing. And it's as mind-blowing as it sounds.

Scientists are riveted by this new material because of its extraordinary properties...

-- It's four times tougher than Kevlar...
-- 74% stronger than steel...
-- Absolutely bullet-proof...
-- And it has the elasticity and lightness of nylon.

The virtues of spider silk have been known for centuries. But until now, no one has been able to produce enough of it for industrial use. That's all rapidly changing, and we'll tell you all about it -- and the company involved -- in this year's report.

Prediction #8: A Cure For Cancer In 2019? (Or At Least Close To It...)
Who needs magic when we have science?

Gene editing, one of the biggest breakthroughs of the 21st century, is relatively easy and simple to understand and implement -- and yet carries with it such amazing power that even curing cancer is now in the realm of possibility.

Sound too good to be true? Not to hundreds and thousands of scientists and laboratories all over the world working on a powerful gene-editing technology. This process can disrupt or delete a disease-causing gene, or correct that gene if the desired DNA is added as a template. And because of its precision, flexibility and the ability to utilize the body's own power in repairing the cut, the technology is about to transform the science of human medicine itself.

Our investment of choice here is a company with a rich scientific heritage -- and it has its sights set on other diseases besides cancer. Just one breakthrough could be enough to send shares soaring. It's still in the "development stage," though -- but that means investors who are willing to tolerate a little risk are getting in close to the ground floor.

"Bonus Prediction": The Red Dragon Breaks Silicon Valley's Stranglehold on Tech Dominance

Think all the big tech breakthroughs come from the Bay Area? Think again.

Whether it's transportation, clean energy, AI, or financial technology, China is not messing around. The country is pushing the boundaries of discovery… And in just a few short years, we predict The Red Dragon will be home to most of the world's tech innovation.

You don't have to like it, but the fact is China has had its targets set on Silicon Valley for years. China's "all in" attitude toward tech has trickled down from its government to its businesses to its sprawling population. You won't believe some of the things the Chinese are working on... and we've got a pretty good idea how you can profit.
