The No. 1 Threat To National Security Could Make You A Fortune
Talk about a lousy way to start the day.
Each morning, even when he’s on vacation, the President of the United States sits with top intelligence officials to review the President’s Daily Brief, a comprehensive list of new intelligence on threats and international crises affecting the country.
These bureaucrats literally have to sit around a conference table every day and ask, “What could go wrong?”
Sure there are hurricanes, earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. But as they say in the insurance industry, these are known as “acts of God.” They don’t include violent crimes or acts of terrorism, which are studied by other agencies.
But thousands of dedicated Americans are working all over the world to keep U.S. citizens safe from an entirely different threat altogether. And in order to address it, the government will need to rely on a burgeoning industry that investors like you can capitalize on today.
Let me explain.
The order of the President’s Daily Brief has changed from year to year — counterintelligence jumped two spots to No. 2 this year, while weapons of mass destruction dropped a spot to No. 3.
But one risk in particular — the No. 1 threat facing America — has stayed the same and is likely to command the top spot for years to come.
I’m talking about cyberattacks.
From the highly-publicized Target holiday hack to high-level threats to national security information, cyberattacks are easily considered the most dangerous threat to this country.
In 2013, President Obama issued an executive order calling cybersecurity “one of the most serious national security challenges [America] must confront.”
It’s not surprising when you consider it. Think about how much of our most valuable information has made its way through cyberspace at some point — from credit card numbers to social security numbers.
Cyberattack defense is crucial for the preservation of our nation. But here’s a tip you don’t often hear in the mainstream media — it can also be a very profitable sector for investors.
For example, take a stock I mentioned to readers of my Game-Changing Stocks newsletter back in June.
For more than a decade, the company has been a leader in blocking email-borne cyberattacks, which is the “largest avenue of attacks in the cyber-crime world,” according to a recent report by Verizon
That type of demand for its services has helped the firm, and its shareholders, profit greatly. Shares are up more than 56% since I previously recommended the stock to my readers.
The company has grown its top line by an average of 32% over the past four years, boosting its revenue to $196 billion in 2014 from $64.8 billion in 2010.
Simply put, I think the company has only seen a taste of its potential upside. Hackers aren’t slowing down anytime soon. If anything, they’re more likely to attack.
And I think this could be a huge opportunity for investors.
According to a November article in The Boston Globe, “The global cybersecurity market is expected to grow by nearly two-thirds over the next five years to $156 billion in 2019 from $96 billion [in 2014], according to Markets and Markets, a Dallas research firm.”
You see, like any blossoming industry, cybersecurity is a fertile ground for investors. Pick the right investment and you could be enjoying triple-digit gains in no tim
#-ad_banner-#And I think that’s what we could soon be seeing with my recent cybersecurity pick. Like I said, I still see plenty of upside ahead — the trend is just too big to ignore.
Sooner, rather than later, the market will recognize that and savvy investors will be rewarded.
But in order to make outsized gains from companies like this — firms poised to revolutionize their industry — you have to take a rational approach and invest before their shares have taken off.
Wait too long and you could be on the outside looking in, wishing you’d bought shares months ago.
The ordinary media doesn’t cover this beat. They’ll often tell you all about a discovery once it comes out, but they don’t look ahead to see where the next one is coming from.
However, I’ve been researching and writing about cybersecurity for months now. It’s time to show investors exactly how important this growing industry will be to our privacy — and our wealth — in the future.
By being at the forefront of a global war that will take years, even decades, to successfully combat, cybersecurity firms have ensured they’ll be in demand for the foreseeable future.
The best part, the pick I mentioned is just one of the top companies profiting from this new trend.
Another pick is already up nearly 38% in 2015 and shows no signs of slowing down. Unfortunately, I can’t give you the names of these companies now.
Instead I’ve included everything you need to know about the cybersecurity space — and the names of the companies I expect to dominate the industry in the coming years — in my brand new report, “4 Firms Fighting The Greatest Threat To Our Nation.”
