Chris Rowe of True Market Insiders has released a video claiming that “L.A.S.E.R.” is a $3.5 trillion megatrend and it’s being driven by Elon Musk’s “secret technology provider.”
According to Rowe, “Elon Musk is testing out what could be the greatest tech breakthrough in history” inside a building in Orlando, Florida.
He says that most people aren’t aware of what’s going on, but “after months of digging through public records,” he found the headquarters of Musk’s “top secret supplier.” A supplier that he claims is making the entire L.A.S.E.R. megatrend possible.
What’s the big deal? Chris Rowe states that “L.A.S.E.R. is going to be the most profitable trend we have ever seen” and “could bring life changing wealth” to investors.
What is L.A.S.E.R? What are Chris Rowe’s stock picks? What’s he selling? And is any of this legit? These are some of the questions I’ll be addressing in this post.
So with that said, let’s get right into it!
What Is L.A.S.E.R? (Overview of Chris Rowe’s Prediction and LiDar Stock Pick)
Chris Rowe’s most recent presentation centers around “L.A.S.E.R,” an acronym for lidar, autonomous vehicles, super battery, electric vehicles, and reusable energy.
Together, these five sectors make up the so-called “L.A.S.E.R. revolution” Chris Rowe discusses in the video on the True Market Insiders website.
“And there are 5 critical sectors within the L.A.S.E.R. revolution… that directly correlate with what could be the most profitable stocks through 2022.”
However, the presentation’s main focus is LiDar (Light Detection and Ranging). According to Chris Rowe, this is the driving force behind the L.A.S.E.R revolution.
“LiDar is the driving force behind the L.A.S.E.R revolution…”
What is LiDar? LiDar is a laser-based technology used for measuring the distance between objects. And it has a variety of use cases, but Chris Rowe focuses on Lidar’s use in autonomous vehicles since it can help AVs navigate in real-time.
How? I’m not an expert on LiDar technology, but the gist of it is that LiDar enables an autonomous vehicle to detect the distance between itself and surrounding objects. So, rather than relying on cameras, the car uses lasers to map everything out.
Here’s how Chris Rowe describes it:
“I’m talking about technology that has your entire surrounding terrain mapped out… knows exactly where everything is, and even how fast other vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians are moving.
I’m talking about LiDar, or ‘light detection and ranging’…
LiDar sensors… beam out lasers to their surroundings… those lasers hit objects around the car, and then bounce back to the sensors.
Without going too deep into the science… These lasers can evaluate every single surrounding object’s position and speed…in a fraction of a second.”
Why is he so interested in LiDar tech?
Based on what he says in the presentation, it seems as though Chris Rowe believes LiDar technology will be the future of autonomous vehicles.
In short, Rowe talks about how there are five levels of autonomy when it comes to AVs, or six if you include “level zero.” And he states that the company he’s teasing is “the only LiDar company that can provide Level 4.”
To help make sense of that, here’s a quick overview of each level:
- Level one is essentially cruise control, which most modern cars have.
- Level two is partial automation, where the vehicle can control speed and steering, but you still need to be in the driver’s seat, ready to drive. And this is where Rowe claims Tesla’s vehicles are at right now, which appears to be true.
- Level three, from what I can gather, is essentially “partial automation,” where the vehicle can drive itself in some circumstances but still requires a driver to monitor everything.
- Level four, which Chris Rowe claims his recommended company is currently at, is “high automation,” where the car can essentially drive itself under most circumstances but can also be driven manually if the need or desire arises.
- Level five is full automation. In a level five autonomous vehicle, there’s no steering wheel or pedal because the vehicles can drive completely independently of human interaction. As a side note, this is the type of automation another investment guru, Charles Mizrahi, discussed in his L5 Revolution prediction.
What does any of this have to do with Elon Musk?
In short, during the presentation, Chris Rowe talked about how Tesla has “only” been able to achieve level two automation so far. And he shared some headlines related to Tesla crashes while on autopilot… more or less suggesting Elon Musk’s attempt to reach full automation hasn’t succeeded yet because he chose to use cameras instead of LiDar.
Why don’t Teslas use LiDar?
Elon Musk is probably the best person to answer that question. But according to Chris Rowe, Musk’s biggest problem with LiDar was that “he felt LiDar was too expensive.”
Regardless of the specific reasons Elon Musk has chosen not to use LiDar on Teslas, he’s openly rejected the idea of LiDar in the past. That’s no secret. However, Chris Rowe claims that Teslas have recently been spotted testing this technology.
“Elon’s most popular Tesla models were spotted all over the city testing the technology provided by the company I am here to talk about today.”
Is that true? As it turns out, yes. Tesla has been seen testing LiDar technology. According to an article on The Verge, a Tesla Model Y was photographed in Florida with LiDar sensors fitted on the roof, which are made by Luminar Technologies (ticker: LAZR).
So, Luminar is Chris Rowe’s LiDar stock pick. Although that part wasn’t exactly a mystery because Rowe reveals his LiDar pick for free towards the end of the presentation.
“If you have a trading account, I recommend you get in there and invest what you can in this company…
The ticker symbol is LAZR and I think it is the perfect time to invest…”
What does this company do?
In short, Luminar is a Florida-based company specializing in LiDAR self-driving vehicle technology. It’s one of the leading companies in the LiDar tech space, and based on my research, it’s working on reducing the cost of LiDar to $500 to $1,000 per vehicle.
This isn’t the first time I’ve come across an investment guru pitching this company, either. Recently, I wrote about Luke Lango’s “Tesla Killer” prediction, which was very similar to Chris Rowe’s L.A.S.E.R pitch, and Lango was teasing the same stock.
In any case, Luminar is only ONE of Chris Rowe’s stock picks.
As mentioned earlier, the L.A.S.E.R presentation centers around five sectors, and Chris Rowe has put together five reports that cover the stocks he’s bullish on within each sector.
The only “catch” is you need to join the Sector Focus service to access the reports. I’ll walk you through what the service is about in a moment. But first, let’s look at what each report contains and what clues he shares about his stock picks.
What Are Chris Rowe’s L.A.S.E.R. Stock Picks?
During the presentation, Chris Rowe suggests that Luminar is his “#1 investment recommendation” right now. However, he also says it’s “just the beginning.”
“As I mentioned before… Luminar Technologies is just the beginning… There are countless companies that are set to see exponential growth from the L.A.S.E.R trend…”
All told, Chris Rowe shares 11 stock picks within five separate reports.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t share many clues about these picks; he mostly talks about the sector each company is in and hints at the tech it’s working on.
However, I may know what at least one of them is (possibly two). And in the following bullet points, I’ll show you what each report is about and share my guesses.
- LiDar The Race to 10X: This report contains the details on why Rowe is bullish on Luminar and another “rival” company he’s interested in.
- Full Autonomy: The First True Self Driving Vehicles: This report details three companies Chris Rowe says are reaching Level 4 autonomous driving. According to Rowe, they each have vehicles coming out of production this year.
- Super Battery: The End of Gas Stations: Chris Rowe’s third report details two EV battery stocks he’s tracking that are developing batteries with a “carbon based wonder material.” He says the battery can charge in less time, go longer distances, and is less likely to catch fire. He also says the stocks are “trading for just a few dollars.” In reality, these could be any number of stocks, but it wouldn’t surprise me if one of them was Ilika plc (ILIKF). That’s just a guess, but this solid-state battery company somewhat lines up with Rowe’s clues. It’s also the company Luke Lango teases in his “$3 Wonder Stock” presentation about EV batteries. So if you want to see how it could be a match, see that post.
- Electric Vehicle Boom 2.0: This report contains three stocks Chris Rowe is bullish on that he describes as “hyper growth stocks that are anchor points within the L.A.S.E.R. megatrend.” Aside from that, the only clue he shares is that the companies provide “advanced technology that many electric vehicle companies only dream of.” Neither of which is enough to figure out what the stock might be.
- The World Saving L.A.S.E.R. Stock To Buy Right Now: Chris Rowe’s final pick is an EV charging company that he says “owns and operates charging stations in 14 different countries.” And there’s only one company I know of that operates sharing stations in 14 countries, ChargePoint (ticker: CHPT). So, that’s most likely the one.
All up, Chris Rowe teases 11 stocks in the presentation. One he gives away for free, and the other ten picks are contained in the five reports above.
I’ve shared my guess on what two of them might be, but I’m only confident about the last one. The EV battery stock is more of a long shot.
How do you access the reports?
The only way to access the reports is to join Sector Focus. So, in the next section, I’ll walk you through what this service is about and how it works.

What Is Sector Focus?
Sector Focus is an investment research service run by Chris Rowe of True Market Insiders. The service costs between $49 and $129 per year depending on where you sign up and provides subscribers with an average of ten trade ideas each month.
How does it work?
I explain everything in my Sector Focus review, so I recommend checking that out if you want the full details on it. But in short, Chris Rowe’s approach involves finding strong market sectors and then “niching down” to find the strongest sub-sectors, industry groups, and individual stocks and ETFs within those groups.
The general idea is to find the investments with the lowest risk and highest reward potential. And once Rowe identifies his top picks, he shares these with subscribers.
From there, you can decide which ideas you want to follow within your trading account.
You also get access to the reports I mentioned earlier that detail his L.A.S.E.R. stock picks and weekly “Market and Sector Analysis” updates.
Is it legit? As with any research service, there’s no guarantee it’ll help you make money. But Sector Focus is a genuine service, and it’s published by True Market Insiders, a Florida-based company I’ve written about on this blog. Not to mention, there is a refund policy in place.
Who Is Chris Rowe?
Chris Rowe is the owner of True Market Insiders, a financial research company, and Rowe Wealth Management, a registered investment advisory firm. Both companies are based in Florida and are run by Chris Rowe, but they do very different things.
TMI is similar to other financial publishing companies in that it sells various tools and research services aimed at helping self-directed investors make money. In contrast, Rowe Wealth Management handles investments for its clients.
According to the True Market Insiders website, Rowe began his career in the mid-90s, serving wealthy investors on Wall Street for investment banks. His profile also states that he’s helped startups raise money and get publicly listed.
Is he the real deal?
My research suggests that Chris Rowe is a real investment expert. And he claims to have picked numerous winning stocks over the years, many of which are tech stocks.
Still, that doesn’t mean you will make money following his recommendations. It’s possible, but nobody has a crystal ball, so anything can happen in the markets.
If you want to learn more about his market outlook and stock picks for the year ahead, check out my complete write-up on Chris Rowe’s latest predictions.
Chris Rowe’s L.A.S.E.R prediction is mostly about his LiDar stock pick (Luminar). However, L.A.S.E.R is an acronym for lidar, autonomous vehicles, super battery, electric vehicles, and reusable energy. And he’s put together five reports covering his picks for each sector.
As mentioned, the only way to access those reports is to join Sector Focus. But you can join this service for less than a hundred dollars. So it’s not like you’re only paying for the stock picks he shares in the presentation if you decide to give it a go.
In any case, I hope this post has helped shed some light on Chris Rowe’s presentation. And assuming my guess is correct, you now know what at least one of his picks is, aside from Lumina. Thanks for reading, and drop a comment below if you feel like sharing.
