Review 2017 - 2018 Forecast
Updated: Feb 11, 2018
2017 was great, it really was! Overall, the chosen focus on sustainability matters, IoT, big data, gaming, IT security, automation, and advanced materials really paid of very well. We saw particular magnificent results with stocks in portfolio such as Tesla, Nvidia, and clean tech stocks SolarEdge and First Solar .
2018 is going to be great also, truly great! I believe the momentum we saw in tech stocks throughout 2017, will continue in 2018. I have added a focus on artificial intelligence and blockchain, and I am eager to start investing in hydrogen. I have particular high hopes for some new stocks I have added in my investment universe such as Synaptics, Comcast, and NXP Semiconductors . Plus, I am confident that blockchain, the technology behind BitCoin, will find its way in the sectors mentioned above, leading to positive developments. Although I am a strong supporter of blockchain, the overload of attention towards cryptocurrencies has turned the entire technology into a speculation rollercoaster and makes it very hard to spell out a buy or sell verdict. I keep a close eye on them to evaluate whether or not I should include some of the currencies in my portfolio.
This being my first year on eToro, I have to admit that I’m proud, delivering positive results during 11 out of 12 months. I would like to thank you all for your trust in me and let you know that it is my intention to continue like this. However, eToro is not all about the results, but also about the social and the learning. I remember from my first days as an investor that I still had a lot of questions and doubts, and I imagine some people might have that same feeling. As an eToro investor, I am not only here to deliver results, but also be there for you to answer your questions and help you out! So if you have anything you’re wondering about, don’t hesitate and shoot! It is my 2018 resolution to answer you as fast and accurately as possible!
Looking forward to a bright 2018! Merry x-mas and a happy New Year!
