WHY THIS MATTERS

At Capital Market Labs we identify trends and the companies that will benefit most from them to find the “next Apple” or the “next Google.” Our research sits side-by-side with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and the rest on professional terminals, but we are the anti-institution. Our purpose is to break the information monopoly held by the top .1%.

Each company in our ‘Top Picks’ is the single winner in an exploding thematic shift like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, drones, biotech and more. In fact, here are just two of the trends that will radically affect the future that we are ahead of:

Virtual reality is one of the fundamental shifts coming in the very near future that will change how we live, work, and play. This is a technology whose consumer base looks increasingly like all of humanity. This is the opportunity so many investors say they welcome – that say they search for. The opportunity to find the “Next Apple,” or the “next Google.” Friends, it’s coming right now, and it lies in the depths of technology’s core. It’s not artificial intelligence, it’s artificial super intelligence and there is one company that will rule all of it.
