Welcome to “Stock Up!”
Following up on a recent promise, this is a new series of articles meant to introduce you to research from second- and third-party sources (most notably, the analysts I respect most).
It’s important to note that these are NOT recommendations (because I am not a registered investment advisor). I’m simply providing information and my opinions on said information. See my disclaimers for more on that.
Similarly, my Methodology (which many of you are so-successfully following) is also not changing. See the article “Step One: Get Rich With My Picks!” for more on that.
OK, let’s get to it…
Celebrating 10 Years Of Picking Triples
After a successful career as Tech stock consultant to Wall Street institutions, I started providing free research. My first public pick, Lionsbridge (LIOX) tripled (from $1 to $3) in 2011 and was acquired for $7 in 2016.
By the end of 2013, I had amassed a track record of 19 triples.
Since then, things have only gotten better and easier. Now teamed with a growing network of analysts and experts, I’m uncovering winners at a faster pace than ever before. According to my real-time tracking sheet, my picks have delivered an average annual return of 109% over the past four years. No, that’s not a typo. 109%.
With continued hard work (and teamwork), the goal is to keep it going… so cheers to all of you who have been learning and leveraging my investment methodology!
The AEHR Should Be Under Their Wings For A Long Time…
This morning, AEHR received a Craig-Hallum price-target upgrade from $12 to $31. Yes, $31.
If you’ve been watching my LIVE video broadcasts, you know that $31 is TEN TIMES higher than our entry price from just 3 months ago!!!
If you saw my latest full-length LIVE, you hopefully added to your position on the pullback to sub-13, because it has risen 40% from those levels in just over one week.
In that video, I explained that AEHR should deliver about $1 of EPS on $100M in revenue. Well, guess what Craig-Hallum had to say this morning? See the picture below for the answer.
Of course, this is all “exciting”, but don’t forget that the risk/reward methodology is designed to assist with buy/sell decisions. We as humans have a tendency to get too excited (and buy) when a stock is moving up a lot… and too depressed (and sell) when when it isn’t. Doing the OPPOSITE is how Warren Buffett became the richest man alive… and exactly what my risk/reward method is designed to help me (and anyone who follows it) do.
It’s easy to learn and laid out in my step by step guide.
In closing, the following is for those of you who like to get deep into technology research (those who don’t can skip straight to the “Translation”):
A member of my research community found data that showed the band gap comparisons of the currently widely researched crystals including SiC, GaN, and AlN. As one would expect, there is a large difference between Si and SiC (one of the key reasons SiC is so much better than Si). There’s a smaller difference between SiC and GaN, but AlGaN is said to provide the same improvement from SiC as the improvement from Si to SiC.
Translation: AEHR should also be able to test AlGaN as easily as GaN and the industry will obviously want to move to AIGaN ASAP. So, by the time SiC manufacturing becomes efficient enough to eliminate the need for 100% burn, the market may move to AIGaN, where manufacturing will be new / necessitate 100% burn in.
My thanks to Vince A for lending his time and semiconductor industry expertise to the cause!
SMSI Looks More Like A No-Brainer Every Day
The latest download data for SMSI’s product at VZ is very bullish.
This represents a 25% increase in the TOTAL number of downloads-to-date in just 3 weeks!
As I’ve been saying, an investor shouldn’t pay attention to how a stock ACTS. He/she should pay attention to how the company is DOING, because THAT is what drives a stock. Enough people have to buy enough of a stock to get the stock moving.
In other words, if everyone waits for a stock to move before piling in, the stock will never start moving. But there are always investors that will jump into a stock at a certain point. So, the question is, do you want to be in front of the move or be chasing it?
When the writing is already on the wall, the decision to buy is easy. So why do we have the inclination to wait until everyone else agrees? Well, that’s just how pack animals act. But natural instinct notwithstanding, it makes a lot more sense to make a move BEFORE everyone else realizes that the writing is on the wall !!!
…and that’s exactly why I’ve been able to generate such massive annual returns for 25+ years. Don’t follow the crowd. Be AHEAD of it.
Getting back to SMSI, the following was released by Smith Micro (SMSI) a few days ago. VERY interesting, especially given what we’ve uncovered about their upcoming product launch at T-Mobile (which is proceeding very nicely, according to my contacts) and others!

Kids these days… they’ll do anything to get around parental controls. Whether it’s deleting or uninstalling a digital safety app from their device, uninstalling a required VPN profile, toggling to “Developer Mode,” or changing the default time zone on their device to indulge in some late-night browsing, kids are incredibly adept at parental controls evasion. To help parents and wireless carriers combat this growing problem, SafePath-based apps now provide parents with immediate notifications when their kid attempts to bypass digital restrictions.
