How You Could Have Already Made 100% This Year

2017 was the year everyone made money. Stocks were hot, properties were hot, commodities were hot, cryptos were white hot!

But as we roll over into 2018 will that all change? Will investors stop being bullish on everything?

Even if they do, there are still opportunities to make money. Some investors have already doubled their returns in 2018.

No, I’m not talking about crypto investors.

I know what you’re thinking. What is Panorama and where can I find another one?

The first is easy to answer, so let’s start with that.

Panorama is a small Aussie tech company.

The company helps to develop miniature sensors for multiple purposes.

For example, last year Panorama was asked to develop an unmanned bomb detecting drone. Such a drone needs light-weight spectroscopy and imagining capabilities.

They also have the potential to develop sensors used for agricultural, automation and connectivity purposes.

Huge potential, but is it probable?

According to Panorama, they could potentially generate revenues from multiple growth industries, from automotive, to the internet of things and automation.

But to generate revenues from such industries, Panorama will need products to sell.

To help in their quest for a product portfolio, Panorama acquired Hydrix, a product development company, in November last year.

The newly acquired business gave Panorama an earnings kick and adds 50 engineers to their team.

Clearly, a lot is expected of Panorama in the coming years — hence the share price rise. But if they can quickly create products and grow revenues, the stock could have a far longer runway ahead.
