Google, a subsidiary of Alphabet and probably the tech group’s best-known figurehead, serves around 228 million search queries per hour (as of January 2021). That’s about 5.5 billion per day.

We use the search engine to advertise our services, offers, and products with which we earn money. Of course, that’s not all Google has to offer. Just think of YouTube, the Android operating system for smartphones, gadgets like Google Maps, the Google Play app store, and much more!

Just suppose the search engine company paid us some (or all) of our advertising costs. While we’re at it, they might as well pay you for YouTube Pro channel. Does thar sound utopian? Well, with Alphabet stock, you could make this utopia a reality!

Alphabet has been a MegaTrend stock for several decades!

The development of the Alphabet stock since 2004

The stock has been an absolute MegaTrend for decades. Many exciting projects and investments by Alphabet are driving up the value and shares of the company. For example, did you know that with Google’s help, plans are being made to promote Africa’s digitization over the next five years? New undersea cable connections for better Internet speeds and lower connection costs are in the works. The tech group has a lot planned for the future!

Participate in Alphabet’s tremendous success and reap a big piece of the pie. Because one thing is certain: Google and its offshoots will continue to accompany us every day.


When was the last time you ordered something from Amazon? If it was recently, then you’re in good company. The online shipping giant receives 2.8 million orders every day. Many people also use Amazon to obtain or compare opinions about products.

In addition to online shopping, Amazon also owns the streaming service called Amazon Prime, which can easily compete with Netflix and other streaming services in terms of popularity. In addition, many have networked their households with Amazon’s “Echo” system or “Alexa”. They can use voice control to regulate the room temperature, activate electronic devices, and much more.

Amazon is an incredibly diverse company that has blossomed from the original online bookshop to a global mega-corporation.

Amazon is a true MegaTrend follower!

The development of the Amazon stock since the end of 2001

Imagine always having a big grin on your face because the next Amazon package is already being delivered to your neighbor’s front door. With the Amazon share, you can not only benefit from the countless orders of your fellow human beings, but also from the many other offers of the company. Since 2001, Amazon’s stock has grown over 43,000%.


What is Apple known for? If you read this story on your Macbook or iPhone, the question is, of course, superfluous. The tech heavyweight can do much more than just computers, tablets, and smartphones.

Apple products have always been the platforms of choice for digital artists, filmmakers, creative minds and other professionals in that sector. With the unstoppable progress of virtual reality technology and artificial intelligence, Apple is creating exactly the right basis for its customers for their future day-to-day business activities.

Development of the Apple stock since 1998

In addition to the constant improvements of the well-known products, Apple also has many exciting ideas up its sleeve for the future. The foldable iPhone, a VR headset, streaming offers, and the legendary electric car called “Apple Car” are just a few of these ideas.

Apple is also now actively involved in the gaming sector. The company’s app store generated an estimated $15.9 billion in revenue in 2019. Around 69% of this was generated by mobile games and other gaming apps alone!

I personally don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t get involved with a MegaTrend follower like Apple. You will earn good money whenever any person in this world purchases an Apple product. Just think of it! In 2020, around 190 million iPhones were sold worldwide, and that’s just one product line of many strong offerings from the tech mega-corporation.


Ask around in your own circle of friends, and you will find at least one person who is a Disney fan. So, why not take advantage of this?

The Disney’s streaming service called “Disney Plus” is currently on the rise. In a short time, it has climbed to the top of the most popular streaming providers. In their online video library, you will find mostly in-house productions, including various short films from the archives, Marvel animated series from the 70s, and bonus material for many films.

In February 2021, Disney added “Star” to its streaming platform. The channel features a selection of productions from Disney brands, including 20th Century, Touchstone Pictures, and others.

The Disney stock only knows one way – and that is up!

Development of the Disney stock since 2009

Movie theaters and theme parks are open again, so the registers at Disney are ringing. The brand, and thus its share value, is one of the one hundred safest and most successful in the world. Imagine you earn something when someone somewhere in the world buys a Disney movie or Disney Plus subscription. The statistics show that their streaming service has gained good momentum since its launch in November 2019.

For the past 10 years, Walt Disney has made an ROI of about 18% per year. Did your savings account receive such returns?


The social media platform known as Facebook is so present in most people’s minds and lives that it seems somehow absurd that the founding of the parent company, which changed its name to Meta last year, was just 17 years ago. To date, the number of monthly active users has continued to grow and is currently around 2.9 billion members (as of the second quarter of 2021).

Like Microsoft, Meta is actively involved in the cloud business. Working on and with advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence , opens up further business areas for the company. Meta founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is currently working with various other companies and developers to transform the social media platform into a so-called “metaverse.” This is a collective virtual space, a kind of extension of the internet that encroaches on physical reality.

Meta is also a true Megatrend follower!

The development of the Meta stock since 2012

You can currently get strong stocks like Meta at a low purchase price. With many exciting projects and ideas, the company is well positioned for the future.


When you see those two golden arches, you know what they represent. However, not every McDonalds restaurant in the world is the same, and there are now more than 36,000 branches in more than 100 countries.

In the past two years, time has definitely not stood still at the hamburger chain. In Europe, security concepts were developed for the company’s restaurants, food was donated to food banks, and a staff partnership with Aldi was set up. In addition, the focus was increasingly placed on contactless options, such as McDrive or the McDonalds app. Reducing plastic waste is one of their big push campaigns that the company is currently rolling out.

The McDonald’s stock is climbing sharply!

The development of the McDonalds stock since 2003

Whenever someone grabs a burger at McDonalds, orders their take-out lunch at a McDrive, or craves something salty after a weekend party, you’re making money as a shareholder. If you are invested in McDonalds, you are a participant in a MegaTrend that is at home all over the world. After all, we are all humans that have to eat, and nothing will ever change that. So take advantage of it!


Statistically, nine out of ten PCs run on a Microsoft operating system. The MS Office range – Word, Excel, and Powerpoint – have become indispensable pieces of software in most offices. If you don’t have at least one Windows computer at home, you can probably play your games on the Xbox, which also comes from Microsoft.

In the mid-1980s, Microsoft launched its first operating system, Windows 1.0. At that time, computers were operating with limited commands and abilities, which made intuitive work impossible. In October 2021, Microsoft released the final version of its latest operating system, Windows 11.

Microsoft stock has grown more than 2,200% since 2009!

Development of Microsoft stock since 2009

Microsoft has also been listed on the stock exchange since 2000. Between 2005 and 2014, the company was one of the most profitable public companies in the world. What has changed since then? In addition to the gaming sector and the well-known Microsoft products, such as MS Office, the cloud business has also developed into a strong growth engine in recent years.

The company recently announced that their quarterly dividend paid to investors is to be increased by eleven percent. Microsoft is sometimes referred to in the media as a “bank for investors”. This confirms what I often emphasize: there is hardly a better way to invest your money than in stocks.


There is a little bit of magic behind it when young and old, male and female, get together in front of the television to cheer for their country or their favorite team. Did you notice that as well?

Besides fan shirts, how many of your friends, especially the younger ones, are wearing Nike jogging pants? For the past few years, we have seen this pretty much everywhere, although many of their wearers rarely exceed a walking pace. The main reason for wearing them is for comfort! You can sit in your jogging pants in front of the computer while at work in your home office.

Nike has been dressing successful athletes with its sports apparel since the 1970s. This includes not only football stars, like Cristiano Ronaldo, Mario Götze, or clubs like Liverpool FC and FC Barcelona. The company is also heavily involved in basketball, tennis, and long-distance running.

Nike is a veteran of the MegaTrend followers!

Development of Nike stock since 1985

Since its inception, Nike has become one of the top 100 most valuable brands in the world. The Nike hook, also known as the “Swoosh”, is now one of the best-known trademarks.

Now that many corona restrictions are lifted in the USA, sports events are becoming possible again. The demand for sportswear helps the company to soar. So whether you are a football fan, sports fanatic, or couch potato, you can have a lot of fun with Nike sportswear and a lot of fun with the stock!


How many brands and products do we use every day without really being aware of the company behind them? Procter & Gamble unites over 30 well-known brands. These include strong names from the hygiene sector, such as Oral-B (dental care), Head & Shoulders (hair care), Braun (electrical appliances), Gillette (wet razors), and many more.

Procter & Gamble’s products cover a huge area of ​​our daily life. You really don’t have to be a professional to earn money with it on the stock market. On the contrary, you can just cast the net like a fisherman, and at the end of the day, see how many fish are caught in it.

Procter & Gamble products are also needed in economically difficult times, which is why the stock doesn’t suffer as much when temporary corrections or a corona pandemic occur. Dental and hair care will never go out of style, just like cleaning your home and the many other daily routine jobs that we have in our everyday lives.


Traveling and online shopping without a credit card? Unthinkable! In the past two years, we haven’t been able to travel as much as we used to, but we have bought more online and paid cashless with our credit cards more. Credit card companies like Visa benefit from this. Now that many regulations regarding the corona pandemic are being eased, travel is also possible again. Our credit cards are glowing.

Visa doesn’t just issue plastic. The company also serves as a point of contact for payment systems and supports many companies, such as online retailers, social media platforms with shop connections and integrations. The increased demand for software solutions for installment financing, the so-called “buy now and pay later” principle, is currently causing Visa’s sales to continue to rise.

Visa stock has the potential for growth!

Development of Visa stock since 2009

Every time someone in the world pays with their credit card, you get a small piece of it off. It’s that easy. We have paid cashless before the pandemic, and we are paying cashless after the pandemic. Companies all over the world benefit from Visa’s know-how. There’s nothing wrong with benefiting from one of the largest financial companies in the world, don’t you think so?
