Our investment strategy is to ride the wave of innovative mega trends.
And when a big breakthrough causes a massive tidal shift, it takes entire sectors with it.
That’s why we are “Tide Riders.” (We’re mapping out our Tide Riders here!)
You’ve seen the massive tidal wave in artificial intelligence this year with some stocks going as high as 300%.
Now a new tide is coming in…
Thanks to the CHIPS Act, the Inflation Reduction Act and infrastructure laws, manufacturing is coming back to America.
The 10-year-average manufacturing spend from 2010 to 2022 is about $80 billion. This year we are looking at a spend of nearly $200 billion!
The result? Stocks in this sector are also on the rise.
This is a huge tide change.
And a mega trend we want to put on your radar today … on top of a few other tides you’ll want to ride this year.

More Edge: Small Town American Boom 🦾
In a small town of just 5,182 people…
Locals are getting cash offers for over $1 million on their homes that sold for low six-figures just a few years ago…
And one of Wall Street’s biggest investors is behind all of it.
What is going on in this small town? What I’ve seen could mean it’s an opportunity of a lifetime.
I put my boots on the ground to get the full story. I’ll share everything I found out about this small town on Tuesday, August 22, 2023 at 1 p.m. ET.
And my #1 stock recommendation to take advantage of this massive, sweeping trend.
Hope to see you then!

A Tale of 2 Inflations
The Producer Price Inflation (PPI) numbers for July came out last week, but buried in the data was one little fact I found interesting.
Producer prices were indeed higher in July … but the increase was driven exclusively by services. The prices of goods, at least at the producer wholesale level, actually fell!
Why Are Producer Prices Important?
Producer prices give us a potential preview of what consumer prices will be like in the coming months.
The prices paid by producers eventually flow through to the final prices paid by us, the consumers, out there shopping for groceries in an inflated market.
The relationship isn’t exact, and there are a lot of moving parts. But producer prices are a leading indicator for what consumer prices are going to be.
So, what are we to glean from this?
The problem is people.
Between higher interest rates sucking demand out of the system and the global supply chain mostly getting untangled, many of the factors driving inflation in goods are being resolved.
But services are a tougher nut to crack, because you can’t make new, fully trained workers materialize out of thin air. We have a labor shortage that is driving inflation in the service sector.
Of course, this is getting resolved too … it’s just taking a little longer.
You might have missed it, but with the help of AI, driverless robotaxis are now roaming the streets of San Francisco 24 hours a day. It’s been debated for years, imagined in sci-fi for decades, and it’s finally happening. Right now.
It’s going to be a while before we start seeing the results of AI automation in inflation numbers. But we’ll get there. And in the meantime, we’re keeping our eyes open for opportunities here — like the new presentation Ian is giving next week on Tuesday.
Like he previewed today, it’s an investment opportunity that’s starting in small towns … and slowly sweeping across the rest of the U.S.
