Today’s the day.
The day I can finally share the research I’ve been working on night and day over the last three months.
I won’t deny, it’s been hard work to get this out so quickly.
I’ve looked at this from every possible angle, and I’m just convinced it’s the biggest single theme that will drive your investment returns over the next decade.
In fact, it will drive more than that…
It will determine how you live. There’s just so much money being poured in, it has to really.
But don’t just take my word for it.
According to research firm Gartner, major companies will be investing US$3.7 trillion in this space in 2018.
They state in a report entitled ‘Gartner’s Top Strategic Predictions for 2017 and Beyond: Surviving the Storm Winds of Digital Disruption’ that by 2020, ‘new business and business models’ will emerge based on the collision event we are about to see.
When new business models emerge, that’s when the truly exponential investment gains become possible.
Think Facebook, Uber or Airbnb.
But don’t think these ‘venture capital’ style returns aren’t possible in the stock market, either.
In the report I’m releasing today, I’ll show you how and why such returns happen.
And I’ll lay out the case for you on why now is an immense time of opportunity.
A pivotal moment, akin to being there at the birth of the microchip.
These moments don’t come along very often.
Maybe once every few decades.
But when they do, that’s when exponential returns happen. For the prepared, the informed and the brave.
Let me go over one example happening right now. And this isn’t even that compelling a story, to my mind.
It shows you the market is starting to hunt down opportunities.
Like this stock, which is even turning the bears bullish…
It’s happening right now
Shares of Overstock.com [NASDAQ:OSTK] closed up nearly 11.6% Tuesday after briefly surging more than 14%.
The stock has hit four-year highs on mounting excitement around the company’s venture into blockchain, the technology behind bitcoin.
Tom Forte and analyst at DA Davidson said:
‘It is encouraging to see legacy financial services acknowledging the potential of the blockchain to disrupt and transform the financial services industry.
‘This is adding further fuel to the Overstock fire as investors [see the company’s] early stage investments in blockchain.’
Over the last three years, Overstock’s CEO Patrick Byrne has quietly developed a blockchain-focused division of the company called Medici Ventures.
The unit’s majority-owned subsidiary tZero has emerged as a frontrunner in applying blockchain technology to trading stocks and digital coins.
Long-time short seller Marc Cohodes first heard about Overstock’s blockchain investments in May. As you know, a short seller looks for opportunities to bet against the price of a stock. They make money when share prices go down.
He visited Byrne in June, the first money manager to do so in a decade. The meeting turned Cohodes into a buyer of the stock.
That’s a big turnaround for an investor used to weeding out the hidden weaknesses in an investment.
Here’s what he had to say:
‘You’re not paying anything for blockchain and you’re getting retail at a steep discount. I think the stock’s going to go to $100.’
Or 230% above Monday’s close.
In other words, these early moves might just be the start…
Bigger than blockchain, bigger than bitcoin
This is just one minor example of what’s starting to happen.
A minor example maybe, but it shows you that you can make real money if you act now.
The event I want to tell you about today turbo-charges this process. It shifts everything to a whole new level.
Its ramifications are profound.
And its effects will seep out in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways.
Over the past few weeks I’ve tried to give you a flavour of it all. To let your imagination loose on the emerging possibilities.
I’ve talked about how nine years of cryptocurrencies and blockchain have laid out the groundwork.
But the main event starts now.
And in the report I release today, I’ll share with you a crucial pivot point. One that’s just starting to happen.
It’s a ‘microchip moment’.
Don’t miss it. Keep an eye on your inbox this afternoon.
