Pagaya Stock Uses AI to Power Asset-Backed Securities

About three months ago, we revisited a fintech company called Upstart (UPST) after its stock price went soaring. In our previous article on the company, which uses artificial intelligence to analyze loan applications, we decided there was way too much risk and volatility to jump onto the IPO, despite the impressive growth story. What goes […]

How to Buy Foreign Stocks as An American Investor

A running joke here at Nanalyze is referring to “the great country of Africa,” a place that most Americans associate with safaris. It’s humorous because it’s an ignorant thing to say. Africa isn’t a country, it’s a continent consisting of 54 countries, each with its own culture and idiosyncrasies. (Surprisingly, around half are dictatorships.) Nearly […]

How Retail Investors Can Invest in Private Equity Funds

If anyone is wondering why Elon Musk has such a fan club, it’s because his inner nerd harkens to those who appreciate immature geniuses. Look no further than his recent announcement that he might start a university in Texas – the Texas Institute of Technology and Science. For most people commenting on this tweet, it […]

Expensify Stock: Making Expense Reports Great Again

The stench of American politics has gotten a whole lot worse lately in Portland, Oregon, a city with squalor that makes third-world favelas look orderly and structured. Take a drive through the city’s main arterials and you’ll quickly notice all the crudely erected structures with garbage overflowing onto the streets. Instead of addressing this gaping […]

Billtrust Stock: Accounts Receivable Automation

A remarkable number of people ask the Ministry of Truth, Google, which stock is “the best” to buy. Never mind how ambiguous the term “best” is, market timing alone can mean two people investing in the same stock, over roughly the same time frame, can experience two very different outcomes. For us, “best” means the […]

7 Geospatial Intelligence Companies for P&C Insurance

There aren’t that many trillion-dollar industries left where technology isn’t already shaking things up. One of the last dinosaurs to be hit by the asteroid of technological disruption is the insurance game. Specifically, we’re talking about property and casualty (P&C) insurance, which represents $1.6 trillion in premiums and accounts for about one-third of the entire […]

5 Pure-Play Stocks for the B2B Payments Thesis

Our recent piece on AvidXchange talks about how small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) in the United States represent a $20 billion opportunity for B2B payments automation. Alongside that opportunity is an additional $20 billion from offering supply chain financing products. A $40 billion total addressable market (TAM) is sizable, but pales in comparison to the […]

AvidXchange Stock: A B2B Payments Pure-Play

They say that the difference between an accountant and a lawyer is that the accountant knows they’re boring. It takes a certain type of person to finish a managerial accounting class and conclude that T-accounts are their life’s calling. As uninspiring as accounting might be, it’s a critically important part of every business out there […]

Clearwater Analytics Stock: A Little-Known Fintech Play

The word is out. This past spring, America’s hottest housing market was little old Coeur d’Alene Idaho, a place we visited last year to meet with an interesting LED tech startup called Rohinni. Plenty of people are finding their own private Idaho in a state that’s known for a low crime rate, friendly people, and […]

Forge Stock: A Secondary Market for Startups

Another day, another reason to avoid special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). This time it’s the Reddit “day traders” wreaking havoc on companies like Spire Global. An increase in stock price volatility equals an increase in risk. Or at least that’s what they teach you in Finance 101. Therefore it’s critically important to only invest in […]
