Investing in Exponential Growth

 

What is the driving force behind the digital revolution and exponential growth? 

Said differently, why now?

“There were 5 exabytes of information created between the dawn of civilization and 2003, but that much information is now created every two days.

Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google

The following timetable brings an element of credibility to Schmidt’s statement:

  • Facebook’s website was launched February 4, 2004.
  • YouTube was created in February 2005.
  • Twitter was created in March 2006.
  • Netflix introduced streaming media, to replace DVD rentals, in 2007.
  • Apple introduced the iPhone on June 29, 2007.

 “While the disruption is immense, so is the opportunity.  The value of digital economy continues to grow in size and importance in every company in every industry.  Nearly 3 billion consumers, businesses, government agencies, and institutions of every nature interact every day using computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and a growing range of mobile devices.  The relentless speed of change of customers, markets, and technology has given rise to enormous opportunity.”

Harvard Business Review

The obvious challenge for all individual investors is, “How can any investor increase his or her wealth by discovering companies that are either enablers or on the leading edge of this exponential growth?”

How do we help investors to discover enablers or leading-edge companies?

First, every day we scan the trading activity for more than 8,000 stocks.  Our proprietary filters identify stocks with extraordinary percentage increases in both price and volume.  Those extraordinary percentage gains obviously reflect aggressive buying by investors.  The virtue of this screening process can be expressed in the following quote from Warren Buffet:

“Writing a check separates commitment from conversation.” 

Our Silicon Investor blog, The Wall Street JournalForbesCNBCFox Finance and a host of other media sources can provide investors with an abundance of conversation.

Our daily price/volume screens provide us with empirical data about which stocks are being bought by investors (typically savvy institutions) making a commitment.

The conversations help investors to look around the corner and to focus their attention on which industries and companies offer the greatest potential for exponential growth and, therefore, for future wealth-building opportunities.

Second, whenever a stock fits both the conversation and commitment characteristics – and our research suggests that the company appears to have exponential growth potential – we issue a UVM Pick Report for that company.  These reports contain research references that support our UVM Pick selection.  The UVM Pick Reports are emailed to all UVM Members on the day of discovery.
