Invest In Disruptive ETFs!

DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION

If you’ve followed Wealthy Joe Investing, you know that I’m a big believer in disruptive innovation.

I believe we are in the beginning stages of a huge technology boom.

Catherine Wood, the founder of Ark Invest, has identified nine transformative technology platforms:

1. Deep learning

2. Digital wallets

3. Cryptocurrencies

4. Next-generation DNA sequencing

5. Battery cost tipping point

6. Autonomous taxi networks

7. CRISPR for human therapeutics

8. Collaborative robots

9. 3D printing

Trying to identify one stock that may be a winner in any one of these trends would be very difficult.  ARK ETFs (exchange-traded funds) allow you to participate without having to select one winner.  The ETFs are comprised of leaders in each technological area.

Here is a list of ARK’s ETFs, with brief information on the platforms on which they focus.  Click on the link for each fund if you’re interested in reading more detailed information on ARK’s website.

Four Cornerstone Stocks For the Next 10 Years!

Good morning!

If you want to invest in four of the most promising trends over the next 10 years, you would be hard to do better than Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA), Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), Teradyne (NASDAQ: TER), and Illumina (NASDAQ: ILMN).

These are cornerstone stocks.  Cornerstone stocks are businesses that are at the center or the forefront of a specific trend.

These companies are leading the charge in their respective industries.

nvidia

1. Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA): Nvidia is the leader in deep learning, a subset of artificial intelligence (AI).  AI is expected to be a $30 trillion dollar market by 2030.

tesla

2. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA): Despite what most analysts think, Tesla – not Google – may have the lead in autonomous vehicles.  Tesla’s long-term plan is to launch autonomous taxis, which may be a multi-trillion dollar market.

teradyne

3. Teradyne (NASDAQ: TER): Collaborative robots are the future, in which people will work directly with robots.  At the end of 2018, the industrial robotic market was $5 billion, and is expected to grow to almost half a trillion dollars.  That would be insane growth!

illumina

4. Illumina (NASDAQ: ILMN): There would be no genomic revolution without Illumina.  They are continuing to drive down the cost of sequencing a human genome to $100 in a few more years.  This could enable more medical breakthroughs over time.

Any one of these stocks would be a good place to start putting your hard-earned investment dollars.
