Although Investing in Exponential Growth may sound intriguing, it’s really about investing in a complex and sometimes unknown future.
Consider the following:
“The advances we’ve seen in the past few years – cars that drive themselves, useful humanoid robots, speech recognition and synthesis systems, 3D printers, Jeopardy! Champion computers – are not the crowning achievements of the computer era. They’re the warm-up acts. As we move deeper into the second machine age we’ll see more and more such wonders, and they’ll become more and more impressive.”
The Second Machine Age, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee
“In terms of the internet, nothing has happened yet! The internet is still at the beginning of its beginning. It is only becoming. If we could climb into a time machine, journey 30 years into the future, and from that vantage look back to today, we’d realize that most of the greatest products running the lives of citizens in 2050 were not invented until after 2016.”
The Inevitable, Kevin Kelly
From an investor’s perspective, the dramatic and credible predictions offered by these 2-books will cause investment decisions to become more arcane and complex than ever.
How can anyone who is not a knowledgeable industry consultant or analyst discover – and then invest in – companies whose technological products and services are exponential and evolving – or as Kelly puts it, “becoming”?
The articles being posted on this site will help investors to look around the corner and to focus their attention on which industries and companies offer the greatest potential for exponential growth and, therefore, for future stock market gains. These articles represent the conversation mentioned in the following quote.
“Writing a check separates commitment from conversation.”
The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNBC, Fox Finance and a host of other media sources can provide investors with an abundance of conversation.
However, to enhance your ability to discover wealth-building stocks for your portfolio, you need something more. You need data that will convince you to pull the trigger and invest.
Perhaps the best data source to convince you to act is evidence that other investors – particularly institutional investors – have begun to buy the stock that you are considering. Said differently, these large investors are writing checks; i.e., they are making a commitment.
