NBT stands for “Next Big Things”—researching and bringing the next big thing sectors and their leadership companies to the emerging growth investor marketplace is what we do. We are metabolically pre-disposed aggressive growth investors. There is not a value stock bone in our collective bodies.
We publish NBT Week every week to keep you up-to-date on ALL the sectors and companies we follow for you 24/7/365. All our newsletter services are included FREE with your NBT Equities Research membership.
Next Big Thing is also an investment philosophy. We believe with 10%-20% of an equity portfolio directly invested in 8-10 leaders of the “secular super sectors” of the world’s economy—secular 3-5 year 20%+ cumulative annual growth rate vertical markets—a portfolio can greatly outperform the overall indexes.
The math is simple: with just ONE 10-20X winner and a handful of disappointments your ENTIRE portfolio STILL gets a 5-10% ANNUAL BOOST. With average retirement savings per 50+ household at less than $75,000 (2010 study Cerruli Associates) EVERY portfolio needs that kind of boost.
We have proven this concept and philosophy for hundreds of thousands of investors since 1995 (when our founder Tobin Smith started his initial emerging growth research outfit ChangeWave Research LLC). “Next Big Thing Investing 2012-2015” will be published end of 2011 to expand and expound on his proven strategy.
Our Next Big Things investment strategy has helped both retail and professional investors own at least ONE 10-20X winning company that accelerates their ENTIRE portfolio to major index outperformance/Alpha.
In NBT land, in order to get this market out-performance/Alpha, you have to be in the emerging growth game…period.
NBT was started by respected emerging growth investor and financial media personality, Tobin Smith (Fox News/Fox Business Network Anchor and Contributor since 2000, NY Times bestselling author, and Founder of ChangeWave Research and ChangeWave investing newsletters).
