It’s been a very exciting week in the market. We’ve seen big moves in various sectors – and especially in many of the stocks in our portfolios.
My focus on investing in the biggest themes out there often results in surges. But the real reward comes over time when the massive 10X, 20X, and even bigger returns come to fruition. Along the way there are plenty of ups and downs.
Two major headlines accounted for this week’s big rallies. And I talk about both in detail in today’s MoneyLine podcast.
Let me give you a quick overview…
The first announcement was a major breakthrough in the biotech industry, specifically gene editing. Gene editing is just what it sounds like. It’s the changing – or “editing” – of an organism’s genes to produce a desired outcome. This is another transformative breakthrough in healthcare that will ultimately save, lengthen, and improve the quality of billions of lives.
This week, we learned that an ongoing clinical trial of a gene editing technique called CRISPR/Cas9 showed amazing early results. In fact, they were so impressive that one of our gene editing stocks soared 17% in one day to hit a new all-time high.
For me, this is one of the biggest news stories in healthcare this year. And it’s only the beginning of what’s in store in the future. More on that in today’s MoneyLine.
The second big news story came out of the cannabis industry. Cannabis stocks finally capitulated and put in a bottom on Tuesday before engaging in a massive rally. A combination of blood in the streets and a historic vote by the House Judiciary Committee sent related stocks soaring in the second half of this week. The committee approved a bill that will legalize marijuana on a national level. It’s not a done deal, which I talk about in the podcast… and we’ll also talk more about it in tomorrow’s MoneyWire.
Stocks rebounded sharply. Canopy Growth (CGC), the largest cannabis company in the world, surged 47% from Tuesday’s low to Thursday’s close.
I update you on my outlook on the entire cannabis sector in today’s podcast.
Finally, I wrap things up with my thoughts on last week. As you may recall, I recently travelled to Portugal to attend the Web Summit – which despite its boring name is actually the world’s largest technology conference. I’ll tell you some of the highlights today, and I’ll follow up with a look at some of the bigger themes next week in MoneyWire.
This is yet another can’t-miss episode of MoneyLine. If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out here.
The car as we know it is on the verge of a transformative change not seen since Karl Benz invented it nearly 135 years ago. In fact, the whole transportation sector is now poised for its version of 2.0.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this will lead to trillions of dollars in money sloshing around in the coming decades. What is coming will create one of the five biggest investment opportunities you’ll ever see in your life, no matter when you were born. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
The next big breakthrough in battery technology is an innovation that will have multi-trillion-dollar economic implications. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when,” and I believe it will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like people did from the creation of the internet and the smartphone. Think of this as your “field guide” for profiting from the next big battery breakthrough. Learn more here.
