Millionaire Making Trends

I am without a doubt an investment information geek. I can’t get enough of great information that exposes me to future trends that can create tremendous wealth.

I wish to God I had this information 20 years ago, but I didn’t, so…woulda, coulda, shoulda.

Today I caught the last 7 minutes of the San Antonio/Golden State game, which is the only 7 minutes I’ve seen since the NBA playoffs have begun.  Let me make one thing clear: I love the NBA playoffs! This is how obsessed I get with reading articles, watching videos, and listening to podcasts about investment.

When you read as much investment related material as I do, you come across a lot of bad and some good.

Occasionally, you come across information that’s exceptional.  Tonight, I want to share a video I came across recently that falls into that category to me.

The name of the company is ARK Investment Management.  ARK was founded by a woman named Cathrine Wood.

The work done by Ms. Wood and her analyst is exceptional.

She is so ahead of the curve that a few years ago, when Amazon was valued at $240 billion, she declared in an interview with Steve Forbes that Amazon’s opportunity was not factored into its stock price, and that it would ultimately be a trillion dollar company.

Today, Amazon is valued at over $700 billion.

ARK’s prediction was not a lucky guess – it was a combination of great research and the ability to see what others don’t see.

In the below video, Ms. Wood discusses big ideas that she predicts will result in growth.  Now, most of you may find it boring, and that’s OK. I feel it’s my duty, though, to share this information with you.  You do with it what you choose.  Until next time, Joes!

Put Your Money To Work!

If you have money in the stock market, you love days like today!

Last night, after the close, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) reported earnings.  It turns out they added 7.4 million new subscribers during the first quarter.  The stock was trading up 7% immediately following that report.

If you were one of the smart people that bought and held Netflix over the last 15 or so years, more power to you!  Unfortunately I’m not one of them.

Today’s action got me to thinking about something: No matter how hard you work, your money can and will always outwork you.

Humans can’t work 24 hours a day. They simply can’t.  However…your money can.

The best thing about investing in stocks is that your money is constantly working hard for you.

Netflix was up 9% today.  Ask yourself a question: Could you increase your income by 9% this week, month or year?  Hell, Netflix made its investors 9% richer in one day!

You will never outwork your money!  So you should stop trying – and just put your money to work.
