The Star Trek Crystal Ball

Abstract:
Broadly speaking, nanotechnology deals with matter at the atomic and molecular scales. "Atomically precise manufacturing" (APM) is the real business of making things using nanotechnology. There is no more exciting area for investors to be in right now.

Let me say first that picking APM winners is not a slam-dunk. We are at a stage in nanotech that can be very frustrating if you forget the big picture. We are tantalizingly close to seeing a swarm of startups come out with world-changing products. These products will provide investment opportunities unlike anything ever seen before. The problem, though, is that sitting on the edge of your seat can be difficult — you can jump the gun. Worse, you can lose patience and give up.

Don't do it. The reason is that APM will not only create new opportunities, it will destroy many existing industries. Just as light bulbs and AC electrical power created huge opportunities, they razed whole sectors. Lucrative businesses crumbled, taking their investors' fortunes with them.
