My Space Force Stock Is Killing It – Here’s What’s Next

Written by Jason Simpkins

A year and a half ago, when everyone else was mocking Space Force, I was looking for ways to profit from it.

Understanding the need for a coherent space-based defense that can shield Americans from hostile satellites and advanced missiles that transcend the Earth’s atmosphere…

Understanding the rise of futuristic new markets for space tourism and space mining…

And understanding the urgency to upgrade America’s missile shield and offensive hypersonic capabilities…

I settled on a company that makes rocket engines to service all of these needs.

Now, Space Force has gone from the punch line of late-night jokes, to a serious consideration, to becoming a reality earlier this week.

And the stock I found to profit from its ascension has already returned 42% since I officially recommended it to my Wealth Warrior subscribers in October 2018.

But that’s all in the past now.

I’ve since moved on to a different market.

Like Space Force, it, too, is cutting-edge and controversial.

But also like Space Force, it is destined to come to fruition — to become a new staple in American life and investing circles.

I’m talking about “facial recognition” or “stealth ID.”

Back in July, I gave a full rundown on how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was using facial recognition to track international travelers as they moved through U.S. airports.

Well, a few days ago, DHS proposed expanding its biometric surveillance program to include U.S. citizens, as well as foreign ones.

The new rule states:

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is required by statute to develop and implement a biometric entry-exit data system. To facilitate the implementation of a seamless biometric entry-exit system that uses facial recognition and to help prevent persons attempting to fraudulently use U.S. travel documents and identify criminals and known or suspected terrorists, DHS is proposing to amend the regulations to provide that all travelers, including U.S. citizens, may be required to be photographed upon entry and/or departure.”

Amid fierce and immediate blowback from civil rights advocates, DHS began walking back the proposal.

“U.S. citizens may opt out of the biometric facial comparison process by notifying a CBP officer or airline representative,” the agency said in a statement. “Individuals who opt out simply present their passport for visual inspection, as is standard practice at ports of entry today.”

The catch is, though, that few people are going to actually do that. The overwhelming majority of travelers will simply acquiesce and accept the new process.

And you know what?

They’ll enjoy certain benefits as a result.

They’ll move through security and customs more easily and quickly. They’ll also find it easier to claim their boarding passes and move through baggage check. And that’s because it’s not just the government adopting this technology, airline companies are deploying it, too.

In facial recognition technology, airlines see a way to enhance security, streamline processes, and eliminate bottlenecks.

Beyond that, the company that I found to take advantage of this fledgling trend uses its facial recognition technology to scan people for weapons (it has over 500 in its database) and track the real-time results of digital ads.

It’s currently deploying a tranche of units throughout Mexico City to combat crime. Others are discreetly stashed at the entry to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, scanning for weapons and individuals who have been banned. And it’s in discussions with school districts, concert halls, and major event venues throughout the world to help eliminate mass shootings and terrorist attacks.

So critics and naysayers may be dismissive of facial recognition technology now, but like Space Force, it’s going to launch regardless.

And while my Space Force stock is already up 42% and shooting higher, the stock detailed in my latest report is trading at a bargain price.

Obviously, Wealth Warrior subscribers have access to both.

Fight on,
