NanoXplore Stock: Where’s the Organic Revenue Growth?

Spending six figures on bee school means you get to do cool things like networking (begging for an internship) and working on case studies (solving problems with no correct answer). Analyzing a case study trains you to make decisions with conviction based on limited facts. That’s how we often approach investment decisions. For example, consider […]

Graphene Stocks Continue Going Nowhere Fast

We’re firmly convinced that retail investors can avoid most bag holder pitfalls by not investing in companies unless they have meaningful revenues.

10 Startups Commercializing Graphene Products

It’s that time of the year again that we really don’t look forward to. Maybe it’s because our mediocre expectations aren’t even close to being met.

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.

Skeleton Technologies and the Future of Ultracapacitors

People cannot help but be attracted to cult stocks where the story becomes more important than the basic principles of investing.

What’s Up with Graphene Stocks? Remember Graphene?

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 […]
