You have to be constantly reinventing yourself and investing in the future. -- Reid Hoffman
The PDF-reading, excel junkie is our CEO and Co-founder and you just pictured her finding a new theme that led to several market-beating investments. Investing by theme is a performance-based way of diversifying. Commonly, people diversify by sector or region to make sure they can balance off potential declines in one stock by the growth in another. But, when you diversify by theme, you are consistently picking top-performing stock without sacrificing performance in the name of diversification. For our CEO, Amazon and the 'rise of e-commerce' theme outperformed the market by 277%. Nvidia and the 'brain of the cars' theme outperformed the market by 542%. These were some of her favorite investment themes which are now mainstream ideas of the stock market. What to do now? What would an intelligent investor do?
Introducing the Stock Card's new investment themes!
Two days ago, we quietly launched a new feature that brought a big smile of nostalgia to our CEO's face. For a few weeks, we have been spending hundreds of hours on market research, reading annual reports, sifting through thousands of articles, and compiling a new set of future-defining themes. Our goal is to make well-educated, data-informed, and emotion-less long-term bets on the companies that are changing the world from the way we know it. Such detailed research and data-forward investment approach is the underlying strength of Stock Card's new investment themes feature. We built each theme to address one significant trend that is shaping the future, just like how our CEO used to do. From now on, every week we will introduce you to at least one new Stock Card from those themes in which we plan to add to our real-money portfolio.
