Uncle Sam is About to Give this Company a Big Boost…

Congress Tasked with Fixing Semiconductor Shortage in the U.S.

A new initiative for one of the world’s most important industries could have some very lucrative effects.

What’s happening?

Semiconductors – conductive materials that make up the microchips found in nearly every electronic device, big and small – have become an integral part of modern life.

But a worldwide shortage of semiconductors has made those very chips difficult to acquire for a host of industries, including automakers, computer and electronics manufacturers, and a seemingly endless list of other businesses.

Recently, Ford Motor Co. (F) and General Motors Co. (GM) announced that they’ve been forced to shut down production of certain vehicle models due to the lack of semiconductors.

While the pandemic certainly created some issues with factory workforces and increased demand for computers as millions began working from home, the widespread application of semiconductors and the incredible demand for them is the source of the issue. With more and more products relying on advanced microchips, semiconductor producers have struggled to meet the demand.

But, as I see it, having so much demand for your products that you’re unable to keep up is a great problem to have.

And a big helping hand may soon be on the way for semiconductor producers and the industries that rely on them.

Let’s take a look…

Where’s the money?

News began to surface this week that $37 billion in congressional funding will be applied to address the semiconductor shortage.

The planned 100-day review would include efforts to identify supply chain issues, reduce dependence on foreign imports, and boost American production of semiconductors.

Congress will seek to level the playing field between U.S. semiconductor producers and the foreign companies that produce them. While American semiconductor companies account for 47% of worldwide sales, only around 12% are produced in the U.S.

So, increasing U.S. production will be a big part of solving the semiconductor shortage.

And, as a result, I’m seeing big things in store for one company in particular…

How do I get some?

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is a worldwide semiconductor company based in Houston, TX.

For years, AMD has been gaining market share against competitors like Intel Corp. (INTC), Micron Technology (MU) and others.

Today, AMD offers some of the most advanced microchips on the market. Its products have been red-hot in the PC and gaming segments, but AMD has also grown its market share in every segment in which it competes.

After an impressive series of earnings reports from Q3 and Q4 2020, AMD stock took a hit this week as investors began to rotate out of tech stocks.

AMD shares have fallen from their high of over $90 last Friday to around the $83 mark in afternoon trading yesterday.

But with Congress looking to give a boost to American semiconductor companies, the small pullback could be one of the best buying opportunities we’ll see on AMD stock in 2021.

Speaking of great timing for investments…

In a matter of months, a very specific product will hit the market – the type that has generated more than $51.9 billion in sales over the last seven years.

And today… YOU have the chance to get a cut. Every time one of these devices is sold, you can make money. This opportunity is so extraordinary, my publisher hired a film crew to interview the founder.

In the Spotlight: GameStop Gets a Second Wind

The big news of the day yesterday was once again GameStop Corp. (GME), which saw yet another meteoric rise in its share price thanks to retail investors.

As trading volume soared during the final hour of trading on Wednesday, GME stock was propelled as high as $177 on Thursday – up from the close price of $44.97 on Tuesday.

While details of the surge are still unclear, including what exactly caused investors to pile back in, I’ll be keeping a sharp on this and other heavily shorted stocks.

I may even put out a special bonus issue of Profit Pregame to share with you what these developments mean for the short squeeze investing trend. Stay tuned…
