My Top Stock Pick For 2019!

invitae stock

My top stock pick for 2019 is a company called Invitae (NYSE: NVTA).

Invitae is one of the leaders in molecular diagnostic testing.

What this means in plain English: through your primary care physician, you can have your entire genome sequenced to determine which diseases you are at high risk of developing.

Invitae is a small company with a market cap of $879 million.

Its mission is to bring comprehensive genetic information into mainstream medicine to improve health care for billions of people.

Invitae wants to aggregate the world’s genetic tests into a single service with higher quality, faster turnaround time, and lower cost.

Invitae’s growth has been off the charts.  In the 3rd quarter of 2018, the company reported an increase in revenue of 106%, driven by 95% increase in volume.

Invitae ended 2018 up 40%, which was great given the carnage the market experienced the last 3 months of the year.

Genomics will play a huge part in in the future of health care.  And Invitae will be one of its leaders.

Invitae is not for the faint of heart, because it can be very volatile.  However – it is a stock with tremendous growth potential that you should definitely watch.

Birthday Bonanza, Part 7 of 8

Good morning, all!  This is the seventh installment in my series about how to set your child up for wealth by investing $1000 at the time s/he is born.

When it comes to investing, the focus is always on the future.  

Sure, there are companies that have been great investments over the past 20 years, but we are only interested in the future.

So look for companies that are poised to do well over the next 20 years of your child’s life.

I would probably avoid companies that have been around since the Industrial Revolution.  These companies may do well, but it is unlikely that they will be the leaders going forward.

Here are some industries and investment themes you may want to consider.

1) Artificial Intelligence (Deep Learning)

2) Robotics and Automation

3) Genomics

4) Mobile Payments

5) Blockchain Technology

6) Energy Storage

7) Gaming

8) Cloud Computing

9) E-Commerce

The guiding principle here: Invest in the future – for your child’s future!
