written by reader the NFC Revolution

By ibew193, April 13, 2015

anyone have any ideas on the chip maker stock for the upcoming revolution in how we do business with our smartphones? According to the retirement millionaire add this chip maker already makes a large percentage of the chips for smartphones and the NFC revolution is about to change the way we do business completely. Its all about using the smartphone to buy whatever rather than credit cards or cash and many big name companies are on board to use this technology real soon. Apparently the primary chip maker should hit it big real fast. Would love to know the name of this company and any thoughts you may have on its success?

Never mind, Apple and Qualcomm would be what you want to look at. As a side note, Keith Fitzgerald just went positive on Apple.

This one is for NFC chips and tech, mostly NXP Semiconductor (NXPI) but also Qualcomm (QCOM), we covered it in February here: http://www.stockgumshoe.com/reviews/retirement-millionaire/the-end-of-american-money-as-we-know-it/

The same basic premise has been touted by many, including Andy Obermueller: http://www.stockgumshoe.com/reviews/game-changing-stocks/this-new-apple-innovation-will-be-bigger-than-the-ipod-iphone-and-ipad-streetauthority/

But the first one to push it super-actively in teaser campaigns was the Motley Fool:

Actually, they first started teasing it several months before the iPhone 4S rollout — which means there’s a bit of a lesson here about growth and patience and how David Gardner really thinks about breakthrough technologies or trends. If you had bought it on the first teaser campaign they released regarding NFC phone payments replacing your wallet in the Spring of 2011, you were 3+ years early — you would have had to sit through a quick near-50% drop in the shares and then be patient through a couple years of relatively flat share price before being rewarded starting in… Read More ยป

Oh, that’s right.mThey kept speculaing about which chips would be included in the next iPhone and were often wrong. I took the bait on $INVN and sold at quite a loss. It got included in the 6′ but the margin was razor thin and the stock dropped like a rock. So glad to be here at SGS, especially the bio threads.
