6 Technologies for Enabling Global Internet

We recently reviewed the portfolio in ARK’s new space-themed ETF and found the list lacking. We’ve been similarly disappointed in other ETFs that claim to offer investors exposure to a big basket of space stocks but turn out to be just the usual collection of technology stocks. We’ve only been able to find one space […]

Reviewing the Stocks in ARK’s Space ETF

Space stocks are like blockchain stocks. You really need to stretch the definition in order to come up with a list big enough to put together an ETF. Some tech themes like fintech or robotics actually have enough constituents to build an ETF. But even then, providers can rarely agree upon what stocks to include. […]

MDA Stock Offers Diversified Exposure to Space Theme

Only a few movie sequels ever truly succeed. One exception is “The Empire Strikes Back,” which every Star Wars fan knows is the best film of the series. The investors who backed the film would also agree, as it grossed about $550 million worldwide in 1980. In today’s greenbacks, that’s more than $1.7 billion when […]

Investing in Geospatial Intelligence Stocks

For retail investors, the biggest barrier to entry for investing in any technology thesis is the availability of pure-play stocks. That usually changes when a startup becomes publicly traded. At that time, lots of the industry’s main players will be privately held, so it’s challenging to figure out how threatening the competition is. Then, you […]

Spire Global Stock Offers NanoSatellite Pure Play

“Free of IPO constraints, SPACs can make ‘absurd’ financial projections – and this hedge fund manager says the fallout is coming.” That was the title of a recent article by Institutional Investor that warns about how the SPAC market often contains “pump and dumps” where investors who participate are buying “incredibly overvalued companies.” We can’t […]

7 Kinds of Water Technology for Finding Leaks

People will often talk about how children are our most important resource. That’s bollocks. Go a few days without water and you’re dead. You don’t have to Google for very long before you find a bunch of depressing statistics about all of the ways our freshwater systems are under pressure. You may remember back in […]

Precision Ag Uses AI on Imagery from Drones, Satellites

We consider our readers shareholders in Nanalyze, and those who kick in some money through a Nanalyze Premium subscription have limited voting rights. Namely, you tell us what rabbit hole relevant topic you want us to investigate, and we’ll release our team of rabid MBAs. So that’s why we’re going to dive right into the […]

5 Billion-Dollar Satellite Operator Stocks

Say what you want about Elon Musk, but he should be commended for not kowtowing to the small minority of soon-to-be unemployable tech workers who think they were hired to push activist agendas. Mr. Musk is too busy executing against his own agenda, which is to secure mankind’s future by making inter-planetary travel a reality. […]

Satellite Servicing Market Getting Ready to Launch

The Nanalyze Disruptive Tech Portfolio Report, available only to annual subscribers, is a constant work in progress. One of the toughest parts has been to find some decent space stocks to include because there are very few pure plays out there aside from satellite companies and the odd and highly speculative space tourism stock. Recently, […]

5 Space Startups Using AI to Make Smart Satellites

“I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” That’s probably one of the most chilling lines of any sci-fi AI villain. HAL, the sentient computer that runs the ship in 2001: A Space Odyssey, has decided that humans are superfluous to its mission. That iconic scene has influenced how we think about the role […]
