Welcome to the next step in the continuing evolution of Wall Street Daily.
Our new mandate is to chart the universe of small-cap stocks — to understand the origin, evolution, and ultimate fate of the tiny innovators that will lead the way to a better tomorrow.
We’re here to help you identify, invest in, and profit from the next Apple… the next Gilead Sciences… the next Costco Wholesale…
Robert Williams founded Wall Street Daily 10 years ago as a vehicle to explore — and help you profit from — innovation.
So, in a very real sense we’ve returned to our roots — stripped down to essential parts, and made them faster and more nimble.
We’re about ideas — good, bad, ridiculous… those that will support a market and generate consistent earnings growth… those that are mere means for promoters to cash out at the expense of the underinformed… those that emanate from the Wall Street-Washington, D.C.-Mainstream Media empire nexus.
Disruption in Context
I’m David Dittman, Wall Street Daily’s editorial director.
It’s my job to assess the situation from 30,000 feet, to identify new trends and technologies that will change transportation, food, health care, housing, energy, education, and entertainment in the 21st century.
I’ll also provide geopolitical and macroeconomic context within which the forces of innovation struggle to make and remake markets.
I’ll be writing to you five mornings a week — Monday through Friday — highlighting the breakthroughs, players, and issues shaping the future.
A financial newsletter veteran with more than a decade’s experience in the industry, I’ve covered emerging markets, Australia, and Canada as well as the global energy and utilities markets.
Along the way I’ve researched and written extensively on small-cap stocks in a number of industries based here in the U.S. and around the world.
I’ve also covered economic, regulatory, and legislative issues. In recent years I’ve also become fascinated with behavioral finance and the way our essential human fallibility impacts our investment decisions.
I’m a lifelong history buff — with the broadest possible definition of “history” that includes financial, economic, political, military, musical, cinematic, and athletic.
I hope to bring my experience to bear in a way that helps you make the best possible decisions about your portfolio.
And I hope to provide some entertainment along the way.
A Fresh Focus on First Movers
Small caps form an often-overlooked asset class. In fact, Wall Street no longer does the work required to understand these companies. We’re here to change the game.
We’re capitalizing on a tremendous opportunity to gain an information advantage that will translate into greater returns for you. We’re doing the work that the Wall Street big shots refuse to do.
Our method — the way we create our information advantage — is based on rigorous research. And that starts with primary due diligence. We get to know first-movers inside and out… and we also get to know the businesses that are using their products and services.
Building wealth is a long-term process involving the synthesis of multiple streams of information from many discrete disciplines. It’s both simple and complex.
The goal is easy to identify… it’s the getting there that’s tough.
What Wall Street Daily does is provide original insights on matters of numeracy — data and numbers — as well as literacy — history and context.
We make it easier to understand breakthrough technologies. And we explain how the companies innovating in these areas fit into your portfolio.
Our perspective on the small-cap universe reveals the stocks with long-term staying power.
We can see the companies whose great ideas will evolve over time into real-world solutions, and therefore investment opportunities.
Thanks for reading Wall Street Daily.
Stay tuned for original, actionable ideas based on superior insights into exploding new industries… every morning, Monday through Friday.
