    Didn't see a thread dedicated to the market, nasdaq etc.

    I used to love mock market investments we did in highschool many moons ago and made quite the profits (McDonald douglas killed it for me thanks to the gulf war)but never did any real investing outside of managing my 401k.
    Just having bought some crypto and a few stocks of a pharmaceutical company,

    ive been looking into things more trying to get ahead of some profitable things.
    Read alot aBout gopro and am almost a year late, but looks like a promising future to invest in so i just tossed down some money on them.

    Anyone else know of any hot trends in the market to hop on outside of crypto that has its own thread?

    Do you own and regularly use a GoPro yourself?

    When I went to Mexico in May I had a GoPro and a waterproof bag for my smartphone. I used both for hiking and snorkeling. I got better results from my smartphone, especially underwater while snorkeling. I didn't think I would but it was much better.

    I think that will start to be the results that most have. Yes, GoPros are great for extreme sports but just how big of a market is that?

    GoPro hasn't expanded beyond the little square camera box.

    Let me refer you to this thread, which sounds like what you are looking for.

    Not that my opinion matters, but I'd advise caution - something that that thread is definitely not about.

    not bad. Didnt think about them, thinking they are somewhat old news. Are they still growing mad expanding?
    Just looked them up. They've been on a downward trend the last month or so. I just put it on my watchlist. If it starts breaking back up. Maybe ill buy as it hits bottom.

    No. But the future projections i read were based on their new cloud and editing subscription services. They have now developed an editing service that can be used for any digi film and the belief is with the new, narrow focused vision, they start pumping out few, but better, products with cloud options.

    There are a few trends right now that I am participating in.

    Reopening - travel, leisure, stores and entertainment. I am buying the Disney dip even if it dips more, they are the Amazon of this space and own so many brands they can monetize, plus all their in person and disney + stuff. Im also a big airbnb fan, been buying them all summer. So many winners here as long as Corona keeps easing, which I think it will by xmas. Eventually we all have it or we all are vaccinated.

    Metaverse - its the hot new sexy thing. I kind of think the metaverse will be huge but it will take a long time and right now people are overly excited about it. Grab a few roblox and wait for this space to cool down.

    Fintech - always good and has been hit somewhat lately. Buy the paypal dip.

    Infrastructure bill - I hate this space, these are all boring companies relying on government to get around to green lighting a project. A little Nucor or something could be prudent though.

    Semiconductor Shortage - this shit is crazy and a potential national security issue. Intel lags but is stable while Nvida and AMD catch rocket ships to the moon. IDK, i feel like intel is the better buy but I have been wrong for years about them. Grab an etf like SOXX of SMH to be safe.

    Inflation - banks, but they are so boring also. XLF it and forget it.

    Oil - if oil is up then oil companies make money. Pioneer? Telliurian is a smaller riskier play with some potential

    Weed - all the weed companies are down big. I think they are a big opportunity and have bottomed out. SNDL, TLRY, CGC, YOLO

    Tech - big space, I buy apple every time it dips and I have money. Its easy money but slow and boring. A few gambles I am in right now are BB, BBBY, KIND, BODY.

    Auto shortage - this area is heating up but still room to run. As the chip shortage eases autos should blow up. Ford is really gathering steam right now, I like them a lot even at these prices.

    EVs - crazy hype space but worth the hype. Eventually all cars will be EVs so there is tremendous growth potential. Legacy car makers have the money to make EVs but are often stuck in their own beaurocracy and current infrastructure to be efficent, which is why Tesla and others keep doing so well.

    Intel quit making memory chips years ago. At the time my former college roommate was one of the world's four leading memory chip designers. I believe the other three were from Japan. Yeah, all of our memory chips are sourced from other countries. Last I heard Taiwan made most of the memory chips. It's shame.

    Taiwan Semiconductors has been beating intel for about 5 years now. AMD and Nvidia dont do their own manufacturing, instead they have Taiwan Semis do it for them. Seems like that should be an advantage for Intel, but they have faltered in their fab process at the highest levels so they are a few steps behind now. My personal feeling is that this is the low for Intel, but this industry takes a long time to turn the corner. Their new CEO Gelsinger seems to have it together and intel is getting into the GPU game Q1 '22, if they can shore up their manufacturing then they should be a powerhouse again.

    When you use the term GPU I'm assuming you mean Graphics Processing Unit.

    Last month has been absolutely brutal.
