How To Become Rich in Graphene?
In this article I’m going to talk about Graphene, a material that is going to change our lives and the world in general.
Surely most of you have listened about it, but what are exactly its properties, what can we apply them for and most important for us, how can you invest in graphene what makes graphene so amazing is that combines a resistance 200 times higher than iron a lightness 5 times higher than aluminum and a huge flexibility.
This can be applied for building ultra light planes, satellites, military industry, among much more. Not only that, but it’s 250 times faster than silicon conducting electricity, a rate faster than any other substance.
Imagine what kind of super fast computers we will have in the near future. It has photovoltaic capacity. The company nanotech has built a solar panel 3 times more efficient than the old ones. It’s able to purify and desalinate water. This can be performed by making microscopic dots into a graphene sheet.
The water scarcity problems can be solved in the near future. These are some among many other properties but I think it’s enough for making your imagination fly. How big can the change be incoming?
As every promising new technology, the people that take the risk and invest in the beginning can potentially be rich.
Keep reading to discover which options do we have to invest in graphene and which considerations do we need to take into account.
3 Different Companies to Invest
Basically, we have three different companies to invest through stocks. The companies that invest just a tiny part in graphene, the companies that invest a big part, that not all and the companies that invest everything in graphene.
1.) For the low implication companies we have Samsung, IBM, and Repsol. Samsung and IBM have a lot of patents about graphene and Repsol have invested the 9% of a company called Graphenea which is devoted 100% to graphene.
2.) For the mid implication companies we have CVD Equipment Corporation, Oxford Instruments, and Axtrion.
3.) For the total implication companies we have First Graphene, and Applied Graphene Materials. OK, I’m only going to remark Repsol, Oxford Instruments, and First Graphene.
Here we have the graph of Repsol a company with a market capitalization of 22 billion. You can see that the trend is not the best but they give a good dividend, about 6,4% and the beta is really low compared to the rest of the companies about 0.6%. This basically means that this stock it’s not MUCH correlated with the SP500, so a really good point if you want to diversify your portfolio.
Here you can see the graph of Oxford Instruments. A company with a market cap of 600 million. You can see the total graph with a huge activity from 2010 for the last 5 years. The trend is not that positive but it’s good anyway. They don’t have a dividend so they invest everything into its company but they have a huge beta so this is not that good because it includes a lot of risk to your portfolio.
For First Graphene we have a company with a market cap of 100 million. It’s a company that in the whole period did wrong. The price went down a lot from 2009 and it hasn’t recovered much, but from 2016 the company started doing the things well so the price is going up, and the trend is really positive. The beta of this company is really low so I recommend you to study this company deeply.
Ok, for concluding, this is a really promising technology but as always, you need to diversify your portfolio also within this sector. I mean, don’t only get one company of this sector in your portfolio. Better get some of them in a lower amount. Each one’s best approach is to compute the risk and the return that each stock can add to your portfolio.
