Why Businesses are Renting Robots

In the near future, your next fast food meal could be made by a robot chef! Yes, you read that right! So let me explain. On October 29, 2020, I tweeted news about a robot named Flippy. As a robot chef, at the time, Flippy could cook 19 items, from burgers to chicken tenders. Flippy was also a prime example of what Ian King and I call “Next-Gen” mega trends — artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. And these trends were actively making a difference. If you don’t remember White Castle, at the time, this American hamburger restaurant chain had 377[…]

The Single Most Dangerous Word in Investing

It’s called “FOMO,” or the fear of missing out. Like when your dumb neighbor, at the start of 2021, bought a new Tesla Model S with his tech stock gains. Or last November, when your neighbor told you about his $100,000 profit in cryptocurrencies … that he made in less than one month. All of a sudden, you were more worried about what you might be missing — than what you might risk getting yourself into. That’s FOMO. Over the years, FOMO has sent countless investors to the poorhouse. It ran rampant when pandemic stocks like Zoom, Etsy and Peloton[…]

Stock Investing 101: What Is Market Momentum?

Lately, my two-year-old has become a little thrill seeker. She loves riding her scooter, especially downhill. This makes Mom uncomfortable (and sometimes Dad too). But she’s starting to understand momentum — how she picks up speed going down that dip in the sidewalk. Momentum is also a critical aspect to stock investing. I touched on it back in October. During my Agora Uncensored interview with Garrett Baldwin, I talked about something called “market momentum.” Market momentum is a metric that financial experts, economists and Wall Street traders follow. Certain stocks give signs that they’re positioned for growth (and profits) in[…]

We Beat Warren Buffett With This 1 Stock

It’s not every day that we beat the greatest investor of all time to the punch. But recently … we did. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway just bought $4 billion worth of shares in this stock. When the filing was released, the stock jumped 11%! It’s in an industry that Mr. Market got WRONG. So we had the opportunity to add a quality business to our portfolio at a bargain price.

The Lucrative Business of … Pirating?

In July 2011, an oil tanker traveling through the Gulf of Aden was attacked by pirates. The tanker’s length was about the height of the Chrysler Building. It was carrying $100 million worth of fuel. And then, it all went to pieces. An explosion and fire broke out. Another story from Matt Campbell’s book, Dead in the Water: A True Story of Hijacking, Murder, and a Global Maritime Conspiracy, was also showcased in the Tom Hank’s movie, Captain Phillips. Matt shared with me the hidden system that powers seaborne trade. And how terrible crimes can occur often with no consequences.[…]

Production as a Service (PaaS) & “Flexible Factories” Explained (+Stock Picks!)

A relatively new concept is set to transform factory production as we know it! It’s time we get familiar with flexible factories. Just like many of us are subscribed to Netflix and Spotify, manufacturers from automotive to health care may soon subscribe to a flexible, or “flex,” factory model. Several industries want to onshore their production (produce more locally). And companies see factory sharing as a possible solution. According to Boston Consulting Group (BCG), flex factories mean: Instead of owning facilities that manufacture its products, a producer pays a usage fee to share a highly flexible factory with other companies.[…]

FTX’s Collapse Reveals “False God of Profit” No. 1

Fortune called him “The Next Warren Buffett”… Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) was crypto’s boy wonder. He founded the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency exchange — FTX. But he didn’t just provide a place where people could buy and sell their favorite cryptos… He spent a fortune on advertising, roping in everyone from Tom Brady to Larry David. He even paid $135 million to sponsor FTX Arena, where the Miami Heat play basketball. Millions believed this was the guy who’d lead crypto into the future. But on November 8, it all came crashing down. After rumors that FTX might be short cryptos, they suffered[…]

A Bear Market Revolution Years in the Making

Markets are rife with things everyone “knows,” but aren’t really true.For example, everyone “knows” that put options go up when prices go down. But, like anything in markets, there’s much more to it than that.Most new traders assume all options are priced correctly because they assume they’re direct derivatives of the stock.
