In just three days – at the 14th Annual Investment U Conference – I'm going to reveal five companies with cutting-edge technologies that could literally change the world.
Before you dismiss such boldness, you need to at least consider the evidence.
Each company is a pioneer – with patent-protected products – already booking sales and profits. In other words, they're not just innovators with great ideas stuck in the lab. To the contrary, they're proving their real world potential as we speak.
Most important of all, though, each company is tapping into demand from an unstoppable growth trend. Or forever growth trends, as I like to call them. These are trends that are destined to continue, no matter what happens in the world.

The following, for instance, are all shining examples of such trends…
Forever Growth Trend #1: Mobile
I've said this before. The exploding use of mobile devices promises to be the fastest-growing – and possibly biggest – technological trend ever. And there's more and more data out there that keeps backing me up.
- Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) estimates there will be 15 billion mobile devices in use by 2016. That's more than double the current amount. And equal to two devices for every man, woman and child on Earth.
- Total annual sales for all mobile-related devices and services just topped $1 trillion (and counting). That's an incredible milestone. Only three other industries in the history of the world have ever pulled off that feat (automobiles, food and defense).

Against this backdrop, all we have to do is find innovative companies in the mobile space early enough and our portfolios are destined to profit. Case in point: Mitek Systems (Nasdaq: MITK).
I first turned subscribers on to the company behind Chase's popular remote check deposit app in December 2010. Back then, it was a lowly Bulletin Board-traded stock worth about $4 per share. Fast-forward to today and it's listed on the Nasdaq. Major Wall Street investment banks are finally catching wind of it. And shares now trade 190% higher for about $11.50 per share.
Here's the good news: I'm set to unveil a duo of up-and-coming micro caps in the mobile space with even more upside potential.
