In 2019, I recommended a “boring” company called DocuSign to my Near Future Report subscribers.
I told readers that DocuSign would help companies save about $36 for every document signed using its digital contract technology. It would also reduce turnaround time by a whopping 94%.
These improvements would streamline businesses’ – and even the government’s – huge paperwork loads.
But this recommendation disappointed some readers.
How were they supposed to get excited about a company helping the IRS manage tax filings more efficiently?
I reassured readers… The e-signature market was growing at a rapid rate – so fast the market size would double every two years or so. And DocuSign would reap the benefits.
That prediction came true. We’ve more than tripled our money on DocuSign in just under two years.
Pretty impressive for a “boring” recommendation…
And it’s an example that shows the power of contrarian investing.
Going Against the Crowd
One factor to my success over the years has been finding investments that go against the crowd.
Perhaps a technology is too early for most people to understand… like 5G wireless networks…
I started writing about 5G back in 2017, long before it began showing up in the mainstream press. Some readers scoffed at my confidence in the 5G revolution.
They didn’t understand that 5G wasn’t an incremental improvement. It would be as much as 100 times faster than our current networks. And it would cut latency to almost nothing.
Since then, my 5G recommendations have brought my subscribers gains like 90%, 118%, and 178%.
Or perhaps Wall Street is missing the big picture… failing to see the larger potential of a company.
At a 2016 conference, I presented on NVIDIA, which was largely known as a gaming company at the time. Its graphics processing units (GPUs) were a popular option for gaming laptops.
But I could see a growing field that needed NVIDIA’s GPUs: artificial intelligence (AI).
Wall Street was not accounting for the exponential growth of AI applications in data centers. And investors did not understand that NVIDIA’s products were perfect to accommodate this demand.
Today, NVIDIA’s chips are the workhorses of AI.
Not only that, Summit – the world’s fastest supercomputer up until last year – uses more than 27,000 NVIDIA GPUs to do its calculations.
Investors who followed my 2016 recommendation could have made over 1,700% in the years since.
In cases like DocuSign, 5G, and NVIDIA, going against the crowd allowed us to profit while the mainstream missed out.
And that’s why I’m so excited about a new opportunity I’ve been researching…
Bad Headlines Are Good News
Recently, I’ve been following a special sector of the market… one with some of the most promising investments I’ve seen in decades.
It’s something different from my usual recommendations. It’s not directly related to AI… biotech… or even 5G.
But these are some of the fastest-growing companies in the world right now.
Even better, they’re letting regular folks invest early.
This has been a huge problem for retail investors in recent years.
Opportunities to invest in companies during their earliest stages of development are few and far between. Companies have been staying private until they’ve already experienced their most dramatic growth.
And investors have missed out on the biggest gains as a result.
That’s why I’m so excited about the opportunity I’ve found…
And more importantly, this space is being discounted right now.
Government attention has led to headlines criticizing the potential here. And investors have panicked and sold, driving prices down.
That means it’s time for us to move in… before Wall Street realizes how much money is being left on the table.
I believe as much as $1 trillion could be up for grabs…
I can’t promise how long this discount window will remain open. But I believe this opportunity could help investors get in on companies that could be the next Amazon or Tesla.
I truly believe this is the smartest move investors can make today. And I don’t want any of my readers to miss out.
That’s why I’m hosting an Emergency Meeting on Wednesday, May 26, at 8 p.m. ET.
That night, I’ll explain what these contrarian investments are… and my strategy for picking the best companies.
And I’ll show how you can get in position this year.
So please mark May 26 on your calendar… and then go right here to reserve your spot.
I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
