You seem to say that there is too much risk in EV technology companies for investment, but then to say at the end that we should find the next MSFT.

Are you saying that investing in battery technology manufacturers is a bad idea? Or a good one? Or that we should invest in Ford? Or Tesla/Phoenix etc?


Mindshar,

none of us know what the next investment that is msft worthy will be.....but the next great tech boom could be mixed with nukes and electric cars.....batteries et al.....

in the 60s it was the age of the transister

the 90s the computer chip

every so many years there is a major revolution in technology.....

oil, gold, commodities etc fall by the way side price wise and tech rules.....

now with that perspective, if in the next ten years the next tech boom is heating up.......well remember that the dotcoms almost all went under......and the transister is rarely used today...in its original form........etc.......

in each tech age there are real profit makers with massive monopoly powers.....and just plain stupid plays no matter how much money they seem to make stock wise.....ie JDSU....or petsmart.com.......

We need to focus on what will be monopoly material and why......and what is not so important financially commercially and why....
