Each year, I travel to Las Vegas to attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), where thousands of companies display new products, make major announcements about their businesses, and let consumers try the latest technology.
In this week’s episode, I break down the biggest trends of CES 2020—from healthcare… to augmented reality (AR)… to smart cities. I share which companies are creating the most buzz so far… and a few that I think have dropped the ball.
One company in particular has caught my attention. You all know it, and you’ll think I’m crazy for recommending it…
Wall Street Unplugged | 703
Live from the Consumer Electronics Show 2020
Announcer: Wall Street Unplugged looks beyond the regular headlines heard on mainstream financial media to bring you unscripted interviews and breaking commentary direct from Wall Street right to you on Main Street.
Frank Curzio: How’s it going out there, it’s January 8th. And I’m Frank Curzio, host of the Wall Street Unplugged podcast, where I break down the headlines and… Tell you what’s really moving these markets. Reporting to you live from the CES in Las Vegas, and have to start off with this. I mean a lot of exciting stuff going on at CES, but we’re supposed to be publishing this on Wednesday. We’re doing it Tuesday night. I’m relaxing. Having a couple beers, lots of hard work, preparation, seeing all these companies, going to have fun over the next few days. Sampling these products. By then it’s about 9:00 PM, and this is Vegas time, so it’s midnight east coast time, and there’s been some crazy news, which all of you know. Right? You’re gonna be listening to this Wednesday, where Iran fired 16 ballistic missiles at US coalition force in Iraq. I’m sure the market’s going to be down a lot on Wednesday. They’re already selling off in China in the pre-market while gold and oil is surging.
Frank Curzio: You got reports of a Boeing 737 plane crashing in Iran minutes after take off. The details are still sketchy. They’re saying this has to do with technical problems. So Boeing’s a recent pick in our Curzio Research Advisory Newsletter that we’re flat on. I think it has tremendous upside potential, but this could be a game-changer. Got to analyze this news. I’ll let you guys know what’s going on there. You’ll learn more about it. But all this stuff happened pretty much within the past couple of hours. Just getting texts. I’m like, “Whoa, this is insane.” Especially if Tuesday the CES opened. You guys are seeing all the announcements, all the product announcements, there’s moving a lot of stocks.
Frank Curzio: Those are two pretty big major events that I’m sure are going to top the headlines on Wednesday and Thursday, which is kind of a shame since there’s a lot of cool things going at the CES. Now, I was going to schedule an interview for you today. Basically I have a big name for you in the tech industry. But I’m going to be honest with you, the information I’m about to give you is much better than any guests I’m going to bring on because that’s how much research I’ve done on these companies.
Frank Curzio: So I’ve been here for two days thus far, scoping out everything. This is all a recon. This is going to see which companies I’m going to learn more about. Sampling, talking to people. And there’s 4,500 companies, over 2 million square feet of space. I say this a lot. If you follow me on Twitter @frankcurzio, posting a lot of live feeds, a lot of cool stuff, that out of 4,500 companies, probably about three or four hundred that need to be here. Everybody else just comes here I guess to say that they’re here, here is a product announcement.
Frank Curzio: But it’s hectic. If you go here for the first time, it’s overwhelming. And a lot of people have different agendas here. For me, my agenda is to find stocks early on. This way my subscribers and myself can make money on. I’ve been doing this for a very long time and have a pretty good track record of doing it. So a lot of exciting stuff. Again, follow me on Twitter. It’s absolutely free, @frankcurzio. Lots of great stuff going on there.
Frank Curzio: Sat in front row at the Intel Media event, which is awesome. And I can tell you, CES and technology, I mean you’re looking, especially over the past couple of years, it’s not just about tech companies anymore. Almost every Fortune 500 company’s here, every auto manufacturer is here. Consumer staple company, utilities. I mean it’s insane when you’re seeing the companies that are here. And why is that? Because every company is basically a technology company. If you have a website and track data, you’re a technology company.
Frank Curzio: I mean you have Delta here. Guys, just please. I’m not saying, I don’t care if you follow me on Twitter, I don’t care if you cancel, whatever it is. You have to see some of the things that Delta was presenting. I mean if you’re looking at, I’m sure most of you saw Alien, the first one, the original with Sigourney Weaver, when she’s in that big thing that she’s moving, that robotic thing that she’s beating up the alien with. They had this young little skinny girl go into one of these things and basically start fixing an engine, picking up hundreds of pounds of things. And it was remarkable. It was just remarkable. I mean, they were showing, just, again, Delta was just, just blew it away. One of the best companies.
Frank Curzio: If you’re looking at the biggest theme thus far, which should scare the shit out of you. It should scare the shit out of you. I’m sorry to curse. I have to say it. It’s intelligence. So they’re calling it, actually, the intelligence of things. Not the internet of things, but the intelligence of things, which is artificial intelligence. Every, every single major company is talking about how to collect data and the best ways to analyze it. And it’s funny because it’s not just about searching for things on the internet or mobile, right? Because that’s what you think, “Wow, they track it.” No, no. We know that already.
Frank Curzio: I’m talking about everything through your vehicles, appliances, smart homes, smart cities, every single connected device. Now, how many connected devices are there? There’s 38 billion connected devices. And over the next five years, that number goes to 56 billion connected devices. Six, seven, eight, nine, ten of them that each of us are going to have. Just the numerous ways that they’re going to be able to track us. Now, if we want to put that in perspective, it comes out to 175 zetabytes. What the hell does that mean? That’s equal to 6.5 billion years of high-definition content. That’s how… And everything’s video, everything’s video
Frank Curzio: And you’re looking at that data and for those of you who don’t follow this industry, I would say easily more than 80% of the data is useless. I mean, they were giving us examples of how autonomous vehicles, which is really cool, tons of technology here, but how they’re all going to be connected to each other through smart cities. But they want to monitor and learn if pedestrians are crossing, how much space to give them, whatever. But most of the time that they’re tracking this data, pedestrians not crossing the street, right? So it’s useless data.
Frank Curzio: It’s the 20% that’s important. Because we be track and analyze to what? To help you predict patterns in consumer behavior. Now, why are all these companies doing this? Why is there so much money going into this? Because this is like a trillion dollar market. And think about it, you’re going to know exactly what every person in the world is going to do tomorrow, next week, next year, in five years. I mean, that gives marketing companies a pretty big edge of what to sell you during what timeframe of exactly what you’re going to do.
Frank Curzio: And this is all brought to you by 5G, which is going to enhance every single trend. It makes everything faster. It makes the speeds on the internet faster, it makes streaming better, it makes everything better. This is by far the biggest theme here. Some other big themes, smart homes, which is basically connectivity of every device in your home that you can monitor and basically use through your mobile phone, a virtual assistant. Talking about smart homes for very long time. Smart cities, a big theme here. Those two things I’ve been talking about for three, four years. Trends that you should definitely know.
Frank Curzio: And I recommended Amazon, which is a fantastic recommendation. We’re up about a hundred percent on it. But Alexa is just everywhere, it’s the king of smart homes. Alexa is compatible with everything now. It’s going into your car. It’s crazy. But when you look at these trends and the stocks that we recommended, whether it’s Amazon we’re doing well on, Itron, one of the biggest players in smart cities, we’re up a lot on. That’s a pretty cool company few people even know exists. It’s still relatively small. It’s got a $1 billion market cap.
Frank Curzio: Some other themes, augmented reality is here. It’s huge. It’s everywhere. Everyone’s incorporating it. I’m going to be sampling this technology over the next couple of days, having fun, making an idiot out of myself. It’ll be fun, trust me. Interviewing a lot of people in this space. Sports technology is also a huge theme. Every single sport, how to monetize every aspect of everything, every movement that you do, tracking everything. And again, using artificial intelligence, just factoring that into sports technology. Intel, AMD, all these companies have mentioned it.
Frank Curzio: Surprisingly, let’s talk about some of the trends that are not really being talked about is robotics and 5G. And that’s based on the social media, AI tracking statistics from the CES, which they highlight every year and I post on Twitter. And I guess you could say, “Will, you know, 5G is huge.” But we’ve been talking about that for the past three years. And finally, finally it’s here. Look at AT and Samsung phones, AT&T, Verizon, and Samsung phones, Apple phones next year, 5G’s here. But I guess since everyone’s been talking about it for the past three years it’s not so much of a big deal anymore.
Frank Curzio: Robotics they didn’t talk about robotics so much. But everyone’s so used to seeing so many, there’s robots everywhere here, but they’re just so used to seeing it. They’re like, “Oh, okay, that’s cool.” I’m not saying that there’s not ways you can make money off of it, but it’s not creating the buzz that you’d like to see here.
Frank Curzio: So when I look at the CES, for those of you who are listening to this for first time, I’ve been doing this for eight years, coming here, I mean it’s a big process. It’s a lot of work. I’m working the whole entire day. I’ve probably got requests from 15 different people to come here. “Hey Frank, I want to chat, I want to hang out, I want to do this.” It’s cool, but it’s difficult because a lot of work, a lot of time. I like to do things my own way. Which companies am I going to see? I don’t want to explain everything to people. Or say, “Hey, I don’t need to know if the person that’s hanging out with me needs to go to the bathroom or whatever.”
Frank Curzio: For me, it’s very time-sensitive to go through all these companies, which spaces, again, 4,500 companies you’re trying to figure out like a good 5, 10 12, 15 investments. So it’s not easy. A lot of work goes behind that. But it’s worth it. If you really look at the track record, the performance we’ve had over the eight years, the numerous, numerous 100%-plus winners that we’ve had in this sector. Oh, and I love it because doing the homework, I mean you’re looking at some of the companies that we’ve recommended in the past. Whether it’s Cypress Semi, Skyworks in the 20’s and it’s over 100 now. People love it at 100 but even last year, let’s go back one year.
Frank Curzio: I mean, I could literally name 25 winners that we’ve had and we’ve probably had a couple of losers of course. But the winners totally, totally outpace the losers. And if we look back at last year, there was two companies that I highlighted, which I recommended. And these two companies, mainstream media wasn’t really talking about them. One company most people never heard of. But when I walked into the Sands Expo today, because they have it at Las Vegas Convention Center, they have it Sands Expo, they have it at Mandalay Bay. They have it like seven hotels. Sands Expo and the convention center are the two biggest.
Frank Curzio: But I walked into the Sands Expo today. And Sands Expo hosts digital healthcare companies, wearables, smart home technology, things like that. There were two huge companies on display right when I walked in. And those are the companies I recommended. One of them was Humana and the other one was Omron. So these are that are in a CRA portfolio, again, I recommended them last year. I said Omron was one of my favorite companies. That was the one I was playing ping pong with since robotics were more important. They released the first-ever blood pressure monitor that was FDA-approved. I mean it was like a seven month waiting list.
Frank Curzio: And this is a company that’s done very well for us now. Now it’s at the forefront of one of the biggest conferences in the world. They were buried wherever. They had two presences. They had one at the Las Vegas Center with the ping pong table and the wearables part, which was in the Sand Expo. These companies were buried. I mean Humana as well. Nobody liked Humana last year. Now it just got put on Goldman Sachs conviction buy list.
Frank Curzio: That’s the point of this, right? This is why I love doing this shit. I mean it’s trying to find ideas before Main Street and before Goldman Sachs puts Humana on their list when we’re up 10, 15, 20% on the stock. But it was really cool. It was just really cool because it’s tiring, it’s Vegas and people say, “Yeah, I’d like to…” I’d rather spend time with my wife and family to be honest with you. I mean it’s crazy. I’ve been to Vegas a hundred times. It’s okay. I get it’s cool. But it’s a lot of work. And to just see that where those two companies we featured, it’s pretty cool. You know? Because I like it because I know by have you bought those companies a lot of you is doing well in the newsletter and that’s what I care about, right? That’s what you pay me for.
Frank Curzio: But you’re looking at so many new companies. Eureka Park, there’s like 1500 companies in there this year. Those are all startups. I mean, look at Kickstarter, GoFundMe, those companies are dead. And people know it’s as close as a scam that you get. I mean, GoFundMe, look. If people really need to raise money for something or health care, whatever it is, help for a family member, I get it. But for these startups to really go there and say, “Hey, fund us. This way you can be part of our company,” when you’re not really part of the company. You don’t own equity. Right? You get to get their products a little early and a couple of emails saying, “Hey, nice, thank you. You’re really cool.” I mean, come on, give me a break. Yeah, you start ups. I want to invest in these companies at their very early stages and these kids like, “Whoa, you know, just go to a GoFundMe page.” And yeah, yeah, okay. I’m going to give you $10,000 you’re going to give me like a garbage can, then, a revolutionary garbage can. I mean, come on, give me a break.
Frank Curzio: But not a lot of buzz. It was one of the most least talked about topics. Again, according to statistics at CES it was Eureka Park. And we’re going to be going through there over the next couple of days, seeing lots and lots of new ideas. But it’s just getting so big, it’s overwhelming. I mean that many startups, it’s crazy. It was crowded down there. It’s crazy. I’m going to find lots of good ideas. But those are companies you can’t invest in yet and a lot of them aren’t accepting equity stakes. They just want to do the Kickstarter thing. So from an investment point, I don’t know if we’re going to find lots of ideas down there.
Frank Curzio: But getting back to the Omrons and the Humanas and the companies we’re finding beforehand. There’s a method to all this madness, right? Because the whole world is looking at, you can live stream the keynotes. That’s pretty easy. Yeah. Everyone’s like, “Oh, what time is this going on?” Or they, just look it up and live stream it. You’re going to be texting. Everything’s like, you don’t want that. You can get that anywhere. And I want to be on the floor when everyone’s at these keynote addresses, which I could find information on from 500 different websites probably within five minutes.
Frank Curzio: And you’re looking at the big announcements, like AMD releasing its seven nanometer chip microns. Cool new products. You have the wall micro LED TV. Impossible Meats. I should have went to that media… Their media day was in a restaurant and they were giving out their new pork products that are not made from pork. Pretty cool. Foldable tablets from Dell, Lenova. Samsung’s Niro TV that rotates the display from horizontal to vertical, kind of like your phone. The LG rollable OLED TV which launching this year. It’s probably going to cost you 60 grand. That’s nothing.
Frank Curzio: But those aren’t the companies I’m really looking at. The companies I’m looking at are companies like DNANudge that sample your DNA and then you have a wearable that helps you shop for food that’s the most healthy for you based on your DNA. And if you think about it, right. I mean for me, growing up, I’m a chubby kid and I watched my friends eat three Big Macs a day and they don’t gain weight because their DNA is different from mine. But they’re saying, “Hey, you know what, you might be focusing on the wrong diets. Well here it is based on your DNA of what you should be eating. This is the best stuff that you should be eating.” I thought it was fantastic. It’s really cool. Won an Innovation Award.
Frank Curzio: Company called WELT has a smart belt that looks like a regular belt, fashion belts that are really cool. It tracks your waist size, food intake, activity. Another one that won an award, LifePulse, it’s the first ever non-invasive glucose monitor. And something, you know, my mom has been sick and she’s got to get her blood taken, she’s got diabetes, every couple of hours and she’s in the hospital and stuff. She’s coming home soon, a couple of weeks. But that’s really cool. So for me, I’m looking for diamonds in the rough, which includes one crazy pick I’m going to share with you later on. And trust me, it’s going to be really crazy. You’re going to laugh when I give you this company. It’s going to surprise the hell out of you. And all of you heard of it before. And I bet you all of you think because they filed for bankruptcy that they’re still bankrupt. So I’m going to give to you in a little while.
Frank Curzio: But looking at some of the biggest winners, Amazon. Amazon’s everywhere. They’re in every smart home, every product within the smart home. They now had a major booth, major presence in the auto section where you can ask Alexa to fill up your tank, it was in a cloud. It’s amazing because Amazon’s presence, and if you look on Twitter, because I’m doing, I did a live stream of it, one of the most crowded booths by far. It’s just, it’s unbelievable how amazing this company is. And then you’re looking at not just Alexa, not just cloud, not just retail, but they’re everywhere in everything.
Frank Curzio: And now with intelligence or AI being the major theme, not just this year, but for the next hundred years, Amazon’s a company that has access to everything you do. I mean, it’s not like Facebook where they have access to what you’re posting. And they’re going to know exactly what you do. Your buying habits, shopping, driving, in your house, walking around. They’re going to know everything about you. It’s pretty scary when you think about it.
Frank Curzio: This way they could sell this data to marketers and make an absolute fortune. AMD being the first to the market with this seven nanometer chip. I’d like to see it first because companies that have a lot more money than them are taking their time to make sure they get it right. I think AMD just wanted to say, “Hey, we’re the first to announce it,” and stock got upgraded. Good reports. Target price was raised. But they beat Intel, Nvidia to the market, so that was a positive for them. Micron had some really cool product announcements. Ford’s new Mustang was incredible, I have pictures on it in Twitter. Their technology was huge. One of the most crowded booths.
Frank Curzio: Intel, when I went to that media day live streamed, the whole thing. They had the foldable tablets. They signed deals with Dell and Lenovo. Also, they brought an executive from Netflix since their chips power their streaming, their new chips. It was really cool. They also have 3D sports technology, which requires fewer cameras, believe it or not, it was amazing. And the quality is getting better and better. And they showed how two, three years ago how it wasn’t that good, but now how great it is. And showing like real life games. And pretty soon that’s going to be 4K, probably in another year or two. Which is amazing. You’re going to see sports games like you’ve never seen them before.
Frank Curzio: And they announced which was a major announcement with Intel was their new Tiger Lake chips. Incredible technology, it was really, really cool. Hyundai with its partnership with Uber announcing a flying drone-like helicopter, again got pictures and videos of this, Twitter. How it’s going to transport, I think it was four people in this helicopter thing. It was really, really cool. I have no idea how they’re going to make money on it. That thing was cost like $10 million. You have to see it. It’s really cool. Trust me guys, see it, Google it, it’s awesome. Hyundai-Uber partnership helicopter. It’s cool. But I don’t know how much you’re going to charge each other, the guys, shit, to transport them wherever they want to go. And I can’t see thousands of these, or hundreds of thousands of these being the norm. Maybe in a couple of generations from now. But it was really cool.
Frank Curzio: Some of the losers, I feel like Samsung was a loser. They had the 8K TVs, they had new products, they had a new AI robot human-like thing, which you could read about anywhere. But they announced a lot of futuristic products that are not going to come to the market for maybe three, four, five years, maybe even a decade. And they didn’t say when they were going to come to the market. So I think they were looking to create more of excitement and buzz. But you like to have that buzz around a product is going to be launched this year and Samsung didn’t really do that too much.
Frank Curzio: I mean they’re launching, of course they’re launching products this year. And Samsung’s one of the most important companies next to Sony, biggest booths. But you go look at their technologies and everything. Everything within these companies. You are looking at chip makers. You’re looking at the flat screen TVs. The average flat screen TV right now is 50 inches, 50 inches. Super high definition. What does that mean? More surround sounds, more installations. Best Buy is going to benefit. How many chips are going into all these things? But that’s how you find the best ideas. It’s not going to Samsung and say, “Wow, look what Samsung brought out for the CES or look what Sony, look what Intel.”
Frank Curzio: It’s going deeper within those trends to find the little guys, the nuts and bolts companies. That’s how you make a lot of money in technology. GoPro, I feel like I’ve been trashing this company for a while and I know the stock’s been going down and I don’t like trashing companies. But they actually an advertisement, their booth is right next to Samsung, so it cost a fortune. And what are they doing? Take a guess what they’re releasing. The HERO8, okay. And the last year it was the 7, the year before that it was 6, the year before that it was 5.
Frank Curzio: I don’t know if you need to really upgrade these cameras anymore. They had the similar technology that’s cheaper and they actually, it wasn’t that crowded, the booth. You’ll see it. Again, if I saw a crowd, I’d say, “Hey, GoPro is a great buy here.” The company I’m going to mention later, you’re going to be surprised at. I’m just telling you what I’m saying, But they had an advertisement saying, Sign up and you get a free year of your whatever software service that they’re selling, and you’re not supposed to advertise here at CES.
Frank Curzio: You’re supposed to look. It’s a place to showcase everything, but you’re not supposed to make these special offers. You’re not now allowed to sell anything here, especially on the main floor. You might have little companies saying, “Hey, if you want to buy this right now, I’ll give it to you,” whatever. No one’s going to bother them. The Intel’s not like, “Hey, here’s our technology. All right, you want to buy it today?” No, it’s not like that. You’re not allowed to do that. They don’t want you doing that. Yet they had this big display, it looked like an act of desperation. Please sign up and you get a free, it was the only company on that floor that was advertising something like that.
Frank Curzio: live streamed I talked to you about. I think they’re going to have a great quarter. I’m not too sure what the guidance is going to be. I think these things flew off the shelves. However, the new comp, I mean there’s at least ten that I saw just better technology, cheaper. I don’t know what the patents are. I know that Shark came out. I think iRobot’s fighting Shark with their new robots, robot vacuums and robot vacuums. It’s a huge theme, but iRobot it’s still an expensive stock even though I was telling you to sell it in well over 100. Not too sure where it is today, 40’s, I don’t know, that was like a week ago or so. I’ve been kind of crazy. I haven’t really been looking at individual stocks past three, four days.
Frank Curzio: But I think that you’re going to see a good quarter. You’re going to see the stock pop cause he’s got a big short position on it. Short ratio is pretty big and that is a good be very, very good time to short that stock. Because it’s going to go a lot lower. They’re not the best in the industry. They’re just not the best in the industry. And they’re trading as if they are and more competition’s coming in. Low barriers of entry. Some of the losers.
Frank Curzio: There’s tons going on here. Having lots of fun. Again, just relaxing right now doing this really late at night for you. Had a couple beers, just relaxing. You can dial down a little bit because tomorrow is going to be a crazy day. Again, tomorrow’s going to be Wednesday when you’re listening to this, but I’m actually going to Shelly Palmer’s special event. They’re going to talk about all the major trends nationally. Shelly Palmer’s very big with technology, one of the biggest names here and you know it’s a personal invitation that I have. Going to have a lot of great speakers on that panel. So that’s from 8 to 10 tomorrow.
Frank Curzio: And the rest of the day, my buddy who is in my room right now, who is taping this with me. He was my film guy. He’s going to have a lot of fun with me tomorrow. It’s going to be really, really cool. But guys, be sure to follow me on Twitter @frankcurzio. Because we’re going to be sampling a lot of these new gadgets and styles. All the research that went in the past couple of days, now I get to have fun. Now I get to go to companies and try this stuff out and have a good time and interview some of the best people around. And all that we’re going to do through live streaming, videos, pictures and that’s all going to be found on Twitter.
Frank Curzio: But before I go, since I built this up, I’m going to share this crazy pick with you. Actually I have two. Two under-the-radar companies that everyone in the world hates, but I’m… One of them. I’m going to put in a Dollar Stock Club portfolio because I like it. And that’s going to be from me. Usually I take a pick from my guests, that’s going to be my pick since I have no guests. And if you want access to that, it’s a dollar. If you can’t afford a dollar, shouldn’t be listening to this anyway, but it’s a dollar. Give me a break. That product is a way of me giving back to everybody to just give you the high quality research from professionals that most people in this world don’t have access to. So it’s a really, really cool product. One page write- up of the best picks for my guests, now you’re going to get my best pick. So that’s one of them.
Frank Curzio: But the one I’m going to give you today, here we go. You ready? He built it up enough, is Kodak. Yes, they’re still around. They went bankrupt and came out, came back out bankruptcy. It was like 2012. Kodak you know as a company that used to be the largest in the industry, huge 80’s, I think even into the 90’s, and didn’t get into the digital revolution. Just crashed. Nobody’s talking about Kodak. Nobody. Yet insiders a buying the crap out of the stock over the past month. That’s why it hit my radar. Now if you look for information on it, there’s not a lot. There’s no analysts covering it. The balance sheet looks pretty good. Started doing some research on it, but they have pretty cool products.
Frank Curzio: So the digital movie picture business, that digital business is on fire. If you guys saw the movie Irishman on Netflix, when he went back and forth and Hoffa and you know De Niro and Pesci, Al Pacino, different time frames. That’s all Kodak. That business is growing over 20% year over year they had a pretty cool booth set up in the middle of nowhere, which I like. I love to see that. They didn’t take out this massive booth like GoPro next to Samsung. No, they didn’t do that. They don’t need to do that, but they had the longest range surveillance cameras, which is pretty important.
Frank Curzio: Think about the smart cities. They’re going to be on every single building going out there. Smart cities is such a monster trend. On a scale of one to ten if I said, in terms of smart cities and adoption, it’s probably like a two. You want to put in baseball terms? I mean the second inning, third inning, it’s huge, huge, huge. Companies… And plus you have government spending, and governments don’t care about money. I mean, the US Post Office here, just they don’t care. I’m going to 5, $7 billion a year while UPS and FedEx make plenty of money. They don’t care. They spend money like crazy, which is cool. Good for this trend.
Frank Curzio: But Kodak, guys, take a look at it. There’s a reason why insiders are buying it. And this is how you make money in stocks. Because I’m saying Kodak and you’re probably going to laugh and you should laugh. But remember, Kodak is not the same company it was. It went bankrupt. It was horrible. It was terrible. People write it off. That’s how you buy stocks at dirt cheap levels. When everyone in the world hates them and not talking about, there’s no one, no one, no one at the CES that’s going to say, “You should buy Kodak.” Nobody, and you know what? Next year when it’s up a 100% or 200% because it’s so cheap right now they’re going to be talking about it. And you can say, wow, I got that first. Because that’s my job.
Frank Curzio: I’m excited to bring picks like that to you. But it looks pretty cool. Look, the insiders are buying it. They have cool products right now. Just check it out. It’s a speculative name. Don’t go crazy, sell your house and throw your money in and your wife’s going to kill you and then she’s got to come to my house and shoot me because I gave you the pick. No, don’t do that. Just put a little bit of money into it. You never know.
Frank Curzio: So, lots to cover, bringing this podcast to you, again, from my room in Vegas, which is pretty cool. I’m going to share something with you over the next couple of days. It’s going to really scare the crap out of my lifetime members, which is something I’m going to do. That’s all I’m going to say, I’m not going to give it away, but it is probably the craziest thing that you could probably do in Vegas that my daughter asked me to do. She asked me to do one thing and this is it. And I said, “Ah, I don’t know. We’ll see.” So it should be fun. I’m going to try to tape that for you. And if I do I’ll throw that on Twitter and whatever and you guys can make fun of me. But having a lot of fun here. A lot of more work to do.
Frank Curzio: I know the market is going to be down at a time you list to this. Let’s… Going to be able to analyze that news and I’ll report back to you probably next week with that. But I really appreciate you guys listening. I keep saying it, but I mean it. Try to follow me on Twitter. I’m giving you guys free information that you’re not going to get anyplace else. It’s going to be loaded with ideas, loaded with interviews, loaded with a lot of cool stuff that we’re going to, it’s going to be entertaining. So definitely, I mean the numbers are going higher and higher, the people that are watching the videos and, in the hundreds now. I mean I’m seeing some of the biggest names out there following me, which is really cool. And Kramer’s following, everyone’s following. It’s cool because I really go into a lot of details trying to provide you original ideas and not just be like the thousand companies right now, media companies, just giving you the best products and you know, with really no agenda.
Frank Curzio: Our agenda is to find diamonds in the rough and make some money for you. So again, you can do that by following me on Twitter. If you’re a subscriber to Curzio Research Advisory and if you’re a subscriber to any of our products or any of my products, you guys are going to get the cream of the crop. My best ideas. It’s going to be next to CRAs first and Curzio Venture Opportunities is next. That’s what you’re going to see. My best picks. And I say that for subscribers and things, I’m giving you guys free stuff. That’s cool. But as you know, I’m going to save the best stuff for the people who are paying for it and my most loyal subscribers. So guys, expect two really cool issues this month. I’m going to work really hard. Break down all these trends, tell you who the winners are and tell you which companies you recommend.
Frank Curzio: When I’ve had these issues, you can go back, I archive anything, everything because there’s nothing I hide. Every single podcast is archived. You could see what I’m saying back 10 years, which I love. So even our website, you can go back, look at the January issues and look at the stocks that we recommended and you’re going to see some amazing ideas that are a lot, lot higher. So these are issues you can expect coming out over the next couple of weeks, starting with CRA, which is next week.
Frank Curzio: We delayed it one week because I wanted to give you a great pick from here. There’s a lot of research I’m doing and CVO comes out the following week. But expect a lot of good stuff in those newsletters. Stuff you’re not going to find anyplace else and ideas you’re not going to find any place else. And that’s it for me. I’m going to grab another beer, relax. Maybe go downstairs and gamble a little bit. And I got a very busy day and a very busy Wednesday and Thursday, which I’m going to be updating you guys with everything, so that’s it for me. I’ll see you guys in seven days. Take care.
