Learning from the world’s richest and smartest
When looking for investment clues, it often pays to follow the lead of the world’s richest and smartest people.
Today, we dive a bit further into the moves of someone we covered earlier this week: Mark Zuckerberg.
“Zuck” is the embodiment of the popular cliche of the rich high-technology entrepreneur who wears sandals and hoodies. In Zuckerberg’s case, the description fits.
His exploits as techno-geek and Facebook (NYSE: FB) founder have been colorfully described in the book The Accidental Billionaires (2010), which became the Oscar-winning movie The Social Network (2010).
Facebook turned 12 in 2015; since the company’s 2012 initial public offering, CEO Zuckerberg’s net worth has soared to $51.6 billion. That dough buys a lot of hoodies.
It also tells us at least one thing: It behooves individual investors to keenly observe the money making decisions of this 32-year-old genius. When it comes to spotting new technology trends, who better than Zuckerberg?
That’s why we began to take notice when Facebook devoted its huge war chest of cash to acquire Oculus, a company focused on a virtual reality headset called the “Rift”.
It’s expected to sell up to two million units in 2016 alone — for $600 each.
As this technology achieves new breakthroughs, and the device’s applications expand from games and entertainment to communication, education, and telemedicine, Facebook will be in a sweet spot with first mover’s advantages.
Surprisingly, there’s a subplot to this story that’s largely flying under the radar of Wall Street and the mainstream financial press. That’s why our team is circulating a just-released presentation on a “hidden” way to invest in this trend, without buying Facebook stock. The information shared inside is time-sensitive, so be sure to watch it now before it’s taken down.
