Motley Fool just published an article titled “Why I’m Betting Big on This 1 Megatrend”.
In the article, the writer is placing his bets on where he predicts the future will go, instead of where it is. The trend he’s most excited about? Healthcare. As he puts it, it’s “…the use of technology to solve some of our most significant healthcare issues.”
He cites three reasons:
First, making your portfolio reflect the best version of the future. A world where the major diseases are cured, and quality healthcare is easy to access? An ideal future indeed.
Second, he writes that he has no doubts that the demand for technology focused on healthcare will increase significantly in the coming decades, especially with an aging population.
And third, the writer believes that we are on the cusp of huge technological advances in several areas of healthcare, such as gene editing and genomic testing.
The writer mentions several companies he likes, including Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG), Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: VRTX), and Editas Medicine (NASDAQ: EDIT).Another area that ties directly into the health and safety of the public? Water. Water scarcity and pollution are two major issues the world is starting to take note of. The World Health
Organization reports that 3.4 million people die as a result of water-related diseases each year. Close to home, think the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and that’s only a tiny glimpse.
A world with revolutionary technology to create clean, abundant water for all? That’s a future we’d like to invest in.
For one company making major strides toward making this happen: Take a look at OriginClear, Inc. (OTC Pink: OCLN). The Company has acquired world rights to patented water systems technology and a 25-year-old company in Texas with a sterling reputation as a builder of custom industrial water treatment plants, generating close to $4 million per year in sales and flying under Wall Street’s radar.
Water in our country is in trouble. Flint, Michigan is far from alone. Cities can’t keep up with water needs, and the funding gap is growing by more than $100 billion a year.
The solution? Self-help. Faced with broken municipal systems, businesses all over America are taking their water in their own hands, with the help of advanced, compact systems from pioneers like OriginClear (OTC Pink: OCLN).
With the help of their breakthrough technology and their own “bank” now in development, the high-tech veterans at OriginClear are transforming the slow-moving water industry, just like the hotel industry before Airbnb (NASDAQ: ABNB), and the taxi industry before Uber (NYQ: UBER), by making FUNDING much easier and revolutionizing how water deals are done.
In 2020, OriginClear showed it could create a water career for COVID-orphaned entrepreneurs and is now building a multi-million-dollar fund to finance water investments so that companies can simply “pay as they go” and only for what they use.
OriginClear refers to this as Water as a Service (WaaS), and their finance company already has received preliminary commitments for $3 million, with more on the way.
According to the Company, water companies are historically a very “safe” investment, virtually recession-proof as unregulated water rates are growing faster than inflation, and this is good for the industry. OriginClear is leading the fast-growing business of helping industry cope with its own pollution.
OriginClear’s primary revenues are from its Texas base, which despite COVID interruptions, are running 14% ahead of 2019… more than $3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to about $2.7 million for the same period last year.
For the same period, gross profits grew by 20% and the company’s losses from operations decreased by 5% to $2,682,435 as deep-pocketed investors continued to bet aggressively on this disruptive play and its popular high-dividend offerings for both accredited and unaccredited investors.
OriginClear’s market capitalization is about $2 million, and trading volume is about 350,000 shares daily, while non-objecting shareholders exceed 8,000.
Water as a Service is expected to help the water industry explode, and OriginClear, Inc. (OTC Pink: OCLN) intends to be a leader in this promising space.
