A Guide to Investing in Graphene Stocks

You’ll often hear us use the term “trying to find the next Microsoft” which refers to investors who are looking for that one exciting get-rich-quick stock as opposed to doing it the slow and boring way with multiple stocks. Warren Buffet didn’t accumulate his wealth investing in exciting stocks, it’s the boring old dividend growth […]

The Long Road to Graphene Commercialization

We’re all familiar with the concept of Gartner’s Hype Cycle which says that any given disruptive technology will experience a great deal of hype before everyone forgets about it and real progress starts being made. As technologies progress through the cycle, business models change, and leaders often end up becoming laggards. – the evolution of 3D […]

What’s Up with Graphene Stocks? Remember Graphene?

Over the past 4 years we’ve dedicated 27 articles to educating investors about “the graphene industry” and so far, we have to say it’s been a bigger disappointment than carbon nanotubes, which were also expected to change the world. Graphene stocks just haven’t performed leaving us wondering if graphene will ever live up to its […]

Is Directa Plus THE Graphene Stock to Own?

We’ve covered most of the graphene companies out there in past articles. As for the handful of publicly traded “graphene stocks”, things haven’t shown much promise yet for investors. The first graphene stock to debut, Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM), keeps providing customer samples but hasn’t shown any revenues since their IPO in November of 2013 after which they’ve […]

Group NanoXplore: Just Another Graphene Producer?

We’ve written 24 articles over the past 2 years about a miracle nanomaterial called graphene, the companies that produce it, the few publicly traded plays on graphene (AGM and Haydale), and potential commercial applications that are hitting the market. We also highlighted a fair number of “graphene stocks” that aren’t viable plays on graphene. After all that […]

Aixtron is Not a Graphene Stock

Graphene is an exciting material, make no mistake. When investors read about the potential applications for this miracle nanomaterial, they want in on the ground floor and look for companies that can give them pure play exposure to the graphene theme. However, caution is warranted. Some companies purport to be in the graphene business but […]

Perpetuus: The Second Largest Graphene Producer

Graphene is a material with remarkable properties that has attracted the attention of starry-eyed investors who are dreaming up all kinds of potential disruptive applications such as advanced materials, solar cells, touch screens, and 3D printing. Quite a number of “graphene producing” startups have popped up including the first graphene IPO last year from Applied Graphene Materials […]

Zap&Go: A Graphene Supercapacitor for Mobile Phones

As we highlighted in a recent article, with all the promises of graphene being the next super material to enable a host of disruptive technologies, the actual commercialization of graphene products seems to be progressing at a snail’s pace. However, one graphene enabled product we came across recently from a startup called Zapgocharger seems to […]

Is Graphene Producer Xolve in Stealth Mode?

While researching the merits of graphene as an investment, we have found few viable opportunities for retail investors. The first graphene IPO, Applied Graphene Materials hasn’t fared well. Graphite miners are trying to laud their mining ventures as viable plays on graphene when this is very far from the truth. Over-the-counter companies are trying to […]
