New Highs Are Around the Corner for BABA

Mar 17, 2018

Technology is a big part of NexGen investing as it is a theme that’s tied to nearly every sector in the market. There is huge potential here, and one of my favorite companies within the space is Alibaba (BABA), a half-trillion dollar company that is often referred to as China’s Amazon (AMZN) thanks to its Taobao online marketplace. Alibaba is much more than an e-commerce company, though and its valuation has yet to reflect that. It’s likely that Apple (AAPL) will be the first $1 trillion company, but I suspect several Chinese tech companies will be right on its tail. What makes BABA one of those contenders is its unique business model. Continue Reading…

The Opportunities – and Limits – of Artificial Intelligence

Mar 14, 2018

The term “artificial intelligence” (AI) sounds a little bit like something you might dismiss, doesn’t it? Why favor something artificial over the real thing? Dismissing AI would be a big mistake, especially when it comes to investing. At the same time, there are still some things we humans are better at – thank goodness – so you have to be aware of the limitations, too. AI is a growing topic on Wall Street, and it is one of my top NexGen mega-trends for the next decade and beyond. The upside potential is huge, and it’s definitely not too early to start making money on it. Continue Reading…

IOTS is Set Up to Rally

Mar 11, 2018

Micro-cap semiconductor Adesto Technologies (IOTS) is a little-known company that offers investors a way to play the NexGen Internet of Things (IoT) sector – an area I am very bullish on over the long term. This $144 million company’s non-volatile memory products are integral for the connection of devices, which is key as more and more devices become linkable and start speaking to one another. IOTS went public in October 2015, and after a quick rally higher it had a rough 2016. Last year was much different, though, as the stock gained 220% from start to finish and at one point traded above $9. Continue Reading…

FMC Remains Poised for Prosperity

Mar 09, 2018

The NexGen lithium sector has been a favorite of mine for some time now. In fact, Albemarle (ALB), one of three major players in the global lithium space, was my pick for’s Best Stocks for 2017 contest and it returned a whopping 48.6% last year. This year I have my sights set on FMC Corp. (FMC), another one of the big three lithium producers. It joined in with the overall sector’s strength over the last two years but has taken a hit recently with the group as a whole coming under fire so far in 2018. The selling is the result of concerns of oversupply, which is the exact opposite of the catalyst that initially drove it higher. Continue Reading…

NexGen Cybersecurity Surge

Mar 07, 2018

I’m sure you are familiar with the rising threat of identity theft and cyber hacks, whether from personal experience (there were over 15 million identity theft cases reported in 2016) or the regular rotation of national headlines. Unfortunately, one of the realities of the NexGen technology revolution is that hackers have remained a step ahead of most companies despite their best security efforts. As technology connects more everyday devices and defense systems, the demand for innovation to fight off hackers will grow exponentially. Therefore, it shouldn't be a surprise that there is a lot of growth potential in this space. Continue Reading…

ADDYY: The New Leader in Athletic Apparel

Mar 04, 2018

The key to investing in NexGen stocks is determining which companies will be leaders in the future. We don’t want to look in the rearview mirror; instead we want to see who is gaining market share today. That’s what led me to invest in Adidas (ADDYY). I took a trip to Europe last summer and was surprised to see the significant amount of Adidas merchandise on both the millennials and in stores. I follow the notion that you should invest in what you know, so when I came home and did my research I was thrilled to see that the stock turned out to have fantastic investment potential. Continue Reading…

eSports – A NexGen Play on the Millennials

Mar 02, 2018

Video games used to be a pastime – a mostly harmless distraction from the things you should be doing. But today they have grown into a full-fledged competitive sport. The millennials call it eSports. This new world of online gaming is the fastest-growing segment within the larger sports and video game industry. It’s an area I follow closely, especially as it has turned a large number of investments into big-time winners over the last couple of years. If you’re just hearing about this NexGen mega-trend now, don’t worry. There is still plenty of time to jump on the train and there are many different ways to play the upside. Continue Reading…

Profiting From the Next Generation

Feb 28, 2018

It’s no secret that I am fascinated by the millennials. They represent a demographic that has defied what we have deemed to be normal. There are both pros and cons to that fact, but as the millennials are getting ready to take the economic spotlight, they have become a NexGen mega-trend we cannot afford to miss. In order to uncover the most profitable opportunities here, we have to think like a millennial. Lucky for you, I tend to surround myself with millennials in both my work and personal life, and I’ve also done years of research on this elusive group of individuals. Continue Reading…

Buy the Emerging Markets on Weakness

Feb 25, 2018

The emerging markets got hit especially hard in the broad market weakness, but that’s not a huge surprise considering the group tends to have a slightly higher beta than United States-based stocks, especially during times of panic. There is a perception that emerging markets stocks carry higher risk than those based in developed countries, and while that may have a bit of truth to it, the overall generalization isn’t accurate. I was bullish on the emerging markets prior to the global market sell-off and am even more so now that we can pick up these names on sale. I like a lot of names in this group, but one ETF stands out. Continue Reading…

NTDOY Still Has Room to Run

Feb 23, 2018

The eSports sector has been one of the best performing NexGen mega-trends over the last year, and it is also the fastest-growing segment within the larger sports and video game industry. Revenue is expected to hit nearly $1.5 billion in 2020 – up from $325 million in 2015. When a niche sector increases by almost five-fold in just five years and the end number is in the billions, that’s a glaring signal that there is money to be made. One of the leaders in this space is Japanese game maker Nintendo (NTDOY). There are three criteria I look for in each potential NexGen long-term investment, and NTDOY checks all the boxes. Continue Reading…
