The last couple of weeks have been extremely trying. Only in a 1st world way of course. I don't have a gun in my face. I don't have my family being forcibly evacuated from their century old homes....but.,,,there's other, psychological things that tend to boil up round these so called 'festive' times. Authenticity is difficult to evoke.Everyone is maturing on their own wavelength, experiencing their very own space/time, dealing with their very own self-contextualized issues, squirming and yearning for release, assigning blame everywhere else except where it truly lies (which is, of course, with the one, the only EGO.
I , for the absolute fun of it, have a make-believe portfolio of American sharemarket stocks. democratize data visualization, how did you get to that? Ananlytics? Yeah? Sooo, I started over 10 years ago.
What I see in these companies.
Why on earth would i have my New York portfolio manager choose to invest in these companies? What is the agenda? World control? Absolute dominion? Am i grooming a future dystopia? Well, in this post I'll try and explain why i chose to invest in each pick.
Biogen is a multinational biotechnology firm that works on therapies for neurodegenerative, auto-immune and hematologic illnesses. My(perhaps naieve)interest here is to back a company looking to wipe out Alzheimers, among many other strange diseases of the brain. I forsee a major breakthrough in this field one day. Perhaps im wrong, and i'm just propping up another profit centered machine with no interest in curing anything, ever. Expect yields mid century? Next week? Tonight?Superconductor Technologies Inc (SCON)
Superconductors fascinate me no end. Why? There's something about this technology that evokes the concepts of 'future' 'super' 'power'. I am captivated by superconductors and cryotechnology. Any chance to enhance research into this field is eagerly acted on by this billionaire, i tells ya.Air Liquide SA (AIQUY)
Another behemoth. This French mob supplies gases and a variety of services to other firms world wide. I, a budding Weyland, can see these guys jumping onboard future space mining enterprises as suppliers of fuel and pillagers of asteroids. Also, future terraforming projects will most likely involve this companys techmology. So ill buy me a controlling stake. Because i can mate. Because i can.Inmarsat Plc(ISAT)
The first Brit mob I'll poke me millions into. Always good to have a controlling stake in a global satellite network, especially one as ubiquitous and broad sweeping as inmarsat. Itll track down the most remote dissenter for me! Handy and dandy!Acacia Research Corp(ACTG)
Here's an interesting outfit, one that dosent have a product line at all but is in the business of liscencing patents and lawsuits, from which it has made a fortune. Think of the broad spectrum control one could amass by investing with this gaggle. You'd be aware of what inventors are up to, and u can reap rewards by helping them protect their patents.Bruker CorporationBRKR
Nuclear Magnetic resonance! Scientific instruments for molecular and materials research. Super technical stuff and i will invest here because i believe these fourier transform ion cyclotrons and mass spectrometers are, well, they sound cool right? Ill put my soft earned yuan their way i reckon!PolyOneCorporationPOL
Ah yes, this crew will build me the polymer based casings for the first robot line, new pigmentations for said units. Always have a stake in at least one polymer firm, youll need all u can get when the exoskeletons go online and the androids require skins. Cladding. Packaging. Fibrous and green??Lockheed Martin...LMT
The business of war. The first 'aerospace' firm ill buy a stake in. Cringeworthy really, not in the least ethical, but a future galactic emperor such as myself will need a controlling stake in at least one of the big 8 global war machinists. I am especially interested in the firms Electronic warfare division. Jammers. And direct energy blasters. This comany lobbies hard. Theyre a monster.Global X FundsAND
A firm that bundles together portfolios to taste and nature! And you can even invest in these investors! Wait, theyre private?NVIDIA
Nvidia. These little buggers are AI developers as well as 'gpu' and systems on a chip technologists. Why not pump some of your ill-gotten gains into this brain amplifying mob. I would. These guys are also into something called 'Deep Learning' , technology to help machines think. Well, it's assured these girls will be on the AI upswing circa 2025 so wack it on it buddy.Baidu Inc (ADR)BIDU
Get yourself a stake in the Google of the world's most populous nation. Or is that second most? Not sure. Baidu is a giant panda. And thats GIANT. This is investment gold. Baidu.Visteon CorpVC
Get yourself in the cock-pit! Visteon Corporation is a leading firm working in the field of self-driving cars, dispays for aircraft cockpits, all sorts of fabulous smart technologies. Information displays. This is surely a good bet for the near future.Intel CorporationINTC

The grandmother of computer companies. If you can forgive and forget the nazi ties, IBM are most likely an extremely stable company to invest in. Conservative nasdaq fodder.Tesla IncTSLA
Mister Elon Musk. Now, theres someone who combines good looks with a sexy voice, and sheesh, he's a self-made billionaire to boot. I like to consider myself a 'meta-musk'. Someone who kind of thinks like him (tripping out) without actually doing any business whatsoever. Tesla is his electric car venture. I'd like to put some of my millions in here.Harris CorporationHRS
Harry? Harris? Horny? Harris, now we're getting surveilled...surveillanced...142 us bucks a share. This is cutting edge radio technology, cuz. And the military industrial complex uses it. Yukky. But, well, I've put my millions in. And i expect a good return, don't I , Chad. Harris will suppy me with electronic warfare technology I need to conquer the galaxy.Raytheon CompanyRTN
same with Raytheon, these guys are more Aerospace centered. Just love that evil sounding company name. So....so...dystopian.. Raytheon!!! they make some pretty amazing stuff. And man, the engineering knowledge and expertise they must employ, staggering power.Royal Bank of Scotland
I thought it sounded occult.The Coca-Cola CoKO
I like coke. I don't care. I love coke, i think itll be around for ever.Analog Devices, Inc.ADI
Signal processing mob. Increasing data usage and transmission worldwide will require the braniacs from this firm to streamline and amplify the capacity of receivers and transmitters. Their slogan is 'Ahead of whats possible'. Thats future safe, i think there Sedwick. Maybe they could also help me with my 'et phone home' project.Asia Pacific Wire &...APWC
