The TINY Way To Invest

Abstract:
One way to invest is to identify a growing trend and get on board before the rest of the market does -- anyone who bought Microsoft shares in 1986 can attest to that. Nanotechnology, the application of manufacturing technologies at the atomic level, was often touted as "the next big thing" during the past decade; particularly during the nanotech investment boom of 2004, but since then returns for investors have been poor.

Yet the seeds are already set for another nanotechnology boom. The engineering and science are well-established whilst many products which use nanotechnology are already in the marketplace. But when a wonder application appears and strikes a chord in the public imagination (anyone for cancer-eating nanobots?) and nanotechnology investments will be on everyone's radar.

Unfortunately the field of quoted companies which specialise in nanotechnology is extremely small. One of these is the American venture capital firm Harris & Harris which has been listed on the NASDAQ since 1997 (Harris & Harris' stock ticker is TINY).
