To make big money you need to spot the next big thing before everyone else. If your taxi driver tells you about a great share they have bought, SELL
Not necessarily. Again, looking at Tesla...nobody was interested and they launched at $17 a share under 10 years ago. Not snapped up by anybody.Problem now seems to be, the tech is so advanced that it's only the few that can devote the money/time to develop this.
What I mean is, and correct me if I'm wrong here.Explain please
100%Not necessarily. Again, looking at Tesla...nobody was interested and they launched at $17 a share under 10 years ago. Not snapped up by anybody.
Your real problem is knowing what's going to be big and knowing what company going to make it big is almost impossible if you want the really huge gains.
Ok I get it - I think the term you are looking for is Market Capitalization - the total value of the company. The value of the share price is neither here nor there. Here is Apple:What I mean is, and correct me if I'm wrong here.
If far easier to imagine and to happen for a small/ish companies shares to go from £1 each to £2 each, to perhaps £10 each. As investors get excited about what's emerging from such a new-ish company.
Than it is for Apple shares to go from the current $290 to $580 or $2900 each
Though, thinking about it, I'm talking bollocks, as you'd still get more money back from a large share moving a bit than a small share moving a lot.
Hang on, let's think about this.
So, I invest in 1000 £1 shares and it cost me, £1000, they double and I make £1000 profit.
I invest 1000 in say four Apple shares at $250, to make 1000 profit, the shares would need to jump from $250 to $500 each.
No, I don't think I am talking bollocks.....
IMHO I'd take a stab in the dark and say it's easier for a company to get it's shares to move from £1 to £2 is they are coming out with something, than it is for a very establish company to move from 250 to 500.
He may be special but there's also huge volatility in their business because of him, just the other day he tweeted the stock price was too high and by the end of trading £11Bn had been wiped off their valve and it's not the first time something like that has happened. I would agree he's been a bit of a visionary but that doesn't automatically equate to value for an investor100%
Indeed, though be honest, we should have seen electric cars coming.
It was just knowing who was going to be "Out There" enough to make it actually become a reality.
And Elon is without question a very special individual.
Without Him and Tesla, we'd be still pretty much nowhere with electric cars IMHO.
Here you go - a chance to get in on the ground floor.^ Well, it's just trying to launch a product before the tech is there.
Like the iPhone.
It's not just that, no one had thought about it, it's that the individual parts had not matured to a level where it was possible to combine the elements into a single small device.
You can't make a nice car unless you can make metal, extract plastics from oil, invent electricity blah blah.
For AR we need the display, the computing power, the battery, the rest is almost the easy bit?
As far as I know right now, Apple will do this like they did the watch and offload the power to the iPhone, so that's solved. They just need to get the battery and display into something small enough that people would be happy to wear it.
Contact lens's a lot further off I'd imagine, though I know it's being "Looked into!"
Perhaps it will be like the iPhone. The 1st one comes out, which finally brings it together, but it's not great, however, it's the starting point, and then over the next 10 - 20 years as everyone refines every part of it, we get to a point when it becomes the norm.
by 2050 almost everyone wearing AR device, as if you don't you are missing out on so much?
Hope Some people invested, now 600% up on my original price. (I haven't made that but not far off, as you know I sell and reinvest).I have been studying Hydrogen power for a couple of months and I think the government will start pushing it. It is the whole idea that the fuel is made on site with the only waste being water. So my suggestion for a share but as said already do your own research:
ITM power PLC.
I've invested in ITM, CWR and Velocys a few months ago. Excellent returns.Hope Some people invested, now 600% up on my original price. (I haven't made that but not far off, as you know I sell and reinvest).
Also another one I posted was Velocys plc (Roman Abramovich owns 45%) and they have the planning app meeting today for their plant in Stallingborough near me. They have nearly doubled since I mentioned.
