The companies to watch at CES 2022

Happy New Year!

I just touched down in Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2022). This conference is one reason I love the month of January for finding ideas. [0:30]

Some companies have cancelled plans to attend CES 2022 because of Omicron. But thousands of others will still be showcasing new technology. I have a lot of meetings and interviews lined up… and because of this podcast, and my wonderful listeners, I get a media badge and special access to this incredible event. [3:00]

There are a few companies I especially want to research at this year’s event—including some that may surprise you… [5:40]

Daniel will be behind the mic for the rest of the week while I attend CES. But I’ll be reporting my boots-on-the-ground research to him to share with you. I’ll also be posting live updates on TikTok and YouTube. If you’re not using TikTok yet, here’s why it’s my favorite social media platform. [8:15]

I recap last year’s virtual CES… and one more reason I’m excited for this year’s event: It will include a lot of crypto and blockchain companies. [15:20]

My show schedule will be hectic, but if you’re attending, reach out to me. I’d love to meet up and discuss ideas.

Wall Street Unplugged | 837

An iconic brand lost its way… Here’s how it can get back on track

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? Happy New Year. It’s January 4th. 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.

Frank Curzio: So, I hope all of you enjoyed the holidays. Spent time with your families. It’s pretty long, right? When it goes through the holidays, you’ll have off, you aren’t really doing anything. Last week, your kids are home, family visiting. Gets to the point where you’re like, “God, thank God my life’s back to normal now.” Right? Everything’s just crazy. But now look, it’s back to work. For me, my holiday was great. Awesome time with the kids. Had a great Christmas. I spent New Year’s at home, where it’s the first year both my daughters actually stayed up to watch the ball drop. And it was really cool to watch all the live performances and have fun with them. And, that was a cool experience for us.

Frank Curzio: But, like I said, it is back to work. I look forward to it because January is the month I pretty much find my greatest ideas, because there’s so many conferences that happen in January. Now, it’s crazy with COVID it, and I’m going to CES, you guys know. As you’re listening to this, I am at the CES, taping this a little bit early and flying there at night. I have a media pass, so I am going to be invited to all the media stuff pre-show, and then it’s Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. And then Saturday, they said they canceled Saturday. I don’t remember it being on Saturday. I usually leave on Saturday anyway, and they shortened it up. We had a couple of companies, a couple major companies said that they’re not going, but when you look at the details, it’s still 1700 exhibitors, 700 startups.

Frank Curzio: They’re going to be displaying their technologies at numerous conference centers. It’s going to be at the Las Vegas Conference Center, which is huge, which is massive, but also it’s gotten so big where it expanded to different hotels, like the Sands Expo has always been a fixture. It used to be at Sands Expo in the convention center. Now, at MGM, ARIA, Venetian, Wynn. You see displays in all these areas and that’s going to amount to more than 1.5 million net square feet of space, which is pretty damn big, right? So that’s why you’re very, very busy. It’s important. I’ve been doing this for a long time. I could tell you, I say this every year, about 85% of the companies don’t really need to be there, but that 15% is really cool. And in that 15%, I could find lots and lots of ideas, which I’ve done for a long time.

Frank Curzio: But if you want to put those numbers in perspective with CES, in 2019, right, the last time it was over was 2020, January 2020 was in person. And then 2021 was virtual only, which is pretty bad. But I think I’ve been off for like eight, nine years in total. I forget. Whatever it is. But in 2019, there were over 4,500 exhibitors. Okay? There’s 1700 this time. The square footage was 2.7 million. 2.7 million, it’s 1.5 now, so a little bit of a smaller show. I’m anticipating over a hundred thousand visitors in total. That was about 160-70,000 in 2019. So, I have tons of meetings set up over the next week. It’s going to be a lot of fun when I’m there. So, it’s with AI companies, virtual reality, augmented reality, blockchain, metaverse. Crypto’s going to have a very big presence there. You didn’t see anything crypto-related, very few companies crypto-related in 2019. Again, that’s the last in-person event. Now, you have a lot of them and plenty of startups. So, you’re going to get lots of ideas on that front. And that’s in the Crypto Intelligence newsletter, lots of ideas all over.

Frank Curzio: And, having the media badge, thanks to you guys, right? We got a pretty big presence and influencer. Everybody throws that term around. I think they want to sound important. I couldn’t care less, but it does. Because we have a lot of listeners to the podcast and we have a pretty big following now, I’m able to get a media badge, which entitles you to a lot because usually these places are jam packed, right? So, it’s going to be packed, but you get interviews with the leading people. And when you’re going to the CES, the reason why I love this conference, not only is it the premier event, one of largest conferences in the world, where all technology companies are announcing their new products, unveiling their new products. You’re seeing that right now, and what they’re going to launch over the next six to 12 months. You find the best ideas.

Frank Curzio: But with the CES, I’m able to get, I won’t say exclusive because they’re not exclusive just to me, but exclusive to a small amount of companies where you get one-on-ones and interviews with some of the top people. And when you’re at the CES and these technology companies, which is awesome, they want you to take pictures. They’re reaching out to me because they want to get that attention and put the statement in front of my shareholders. So, I got to do all the vetting and stuff like that, and in my subscribers. And that’s different from a lot of conferences I attend, because you’re going to have the JP Morgan, which went all virtual, which is like, I think a week later. So, next week of the week after, which is the largest healthcare conference, we have JP Morgan for over 40 years.

Frank Curzio: But a lot of those companies, they don’t give out a lot of details. They don’t like to do one-on-ones. Mining is pretty cool. Those guys want to show you everything. A lot of them are going to tell you bullshit stories, but some industries it’s really, really hard. At this event, that they want you to take pictures, that they’re reaching out to me personally saying, “Listen, meet with this person, meet with that person.” I’m going to be meeting with a company that has flying taxis. That should be pretty cool. I don’t know if I’m going to go in one. Thomas Vehicles, where they’re going to be racing each other. We’re going to see an electric vehicle company. This is the largest auto show now. This replaced, not replaced, but it’s bigger than a Detroit auto show.

Frank Curzio: This is where they highlight all the new products, now. This happens with Ford’s Detroit auto show. And one of the companies I’m looking forward to, believe it or not is GM, because they’re going to display a Silverado EV. I know, Silverado like, “Ah, we got the Rivian out, and we have Ford Lightning out.” What I’m hearing about the Silverado is absolutely amazing. Even if you look it up right now, pre-show, I’m going to get pictures. I’m going to try to get interviews and stuff like that. But I’m hearing that this is the truck to own. One charge, 400 miles, which it’s got a four wheel steering, but that’s more miles that anything else. Enormous infotainment platform.

Frank Curzio: The people who are truly on the inside and the media, some media’s there on the third. I don’t go on the third. I go on the fourth, which is a media event as well. Then it’s going to be Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, open to everybody. But people who were there on the third and getting this information already are saying that, “Holy cow, this is one of the things you need to see at the CES.” Which is pretty cool, right? Because for me, I’m like, “GM Silverado, really?” But that’s one of the things they said, “This car’s going to blow you away.”

Frank Curzio: But you do have some companies that did pull out, some big companies pull out, but there’s still a lot of major companies that are going to be there, including Sony and Samsung, LG, those three always have the largest presence out of any company there. All the time. They’re all, they’re going to be there. BMW, GM, Qualcomm, AVIT, 3M, Deere, Bosch, Colgate, Eaton. A lot of these major companies. Deere is amazing. They really are. I know, John Deere, you’re like, “What are you talking about?” They’re into AI now, and it’s just unbelievable. But that was one of the companies that were really, really cool. I remember going in 2020.

Frank Curzio: Again, setting up meetings with all these people, and I’m going to have videos for you. Short videos, not videos that are going to be 20 minutes, long, 30 minutes long, crazy, but lots of pictures I’m going to be able to show you. So, you’re going to get a nice inside scoop, and over the next three days, right? So, I’m taping this early and over the next three days, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, we have Daniel Creech, who’s going to be taken over my podcast, because he’s going to be here in Florida while I’m at Vegas. I’m going to be talking to him every day and sharing what I saw with him, because it’s very hard to do video streaming and stuff like that, just back and forth, because there’s a three hour time difference. And, I want this to go out timely to you.

Frank Curzio: So, in order to do that, it’s difficult where it’s like a three hour time difference, which is where I’m going to be in the heart of the conference. Right? So, getting these podcasts out to you and taping them at 10, 11 o’clock Eastern time, you can’t really do that, right? Because now, it’s you look at one, 2:00 PM. It’s difficult. So for me, I’m going to be calling into Daniel. Dan’s going to be doing these podcasts, for audio podcasts. So, definitely listen in. I’m going to be sharing the ideas and things I’m seeing with him, and looking forward to him doing the podcast the rest of this week. However, with that said, I’m going to broadcast almost everything I’m seeing through our TikTok channel. I know you say, “TikTok, oh, TikTok is new and maybe it…”

Frank Curzio: We’re starting to get a major presence there. So, for example, if you try to go on Instagram, it’s very hard to get a major presence because you’re late to the party. It’s like a saturated place. And if you go to Twitter, Twitter’s like a joke. A lot of the big people are starting to leave Twitter, one by one. They’re starting to go to different platforms. It’s just a platform where you’re just going to yell at people, argue with people. I’m finding no value in it anymore. TikTok, our presence is starting to surge. We’re very early to the party. It’s short videos. It’s really cool stuff. But, our followers have jumped. We went from like zero to 3000, I would say, in a couple months. I think we’re going to get 10,000, a hundred thousand pretty quickly, because we have lots of content that we are able to share with the world. You guys know that through the podcast, but a lot of people don’t listen to the podcast.

Frank Curzio: There’s millions. Everyone has a podcast, right? Your sister’s uncle’s boyfriend’s husband. Everyone has a podcast now, everyone. I’ve been doing this for 14 years. Everybody has a podcast. You say you have a podcast like, “Big deal. I have one too, that I did it for a week, and I don’t do it anymore. Right?” So, people tell you. But with TikTok, a lot of our video clips, we’re taking really important stuff, and even in the interviews, and taking 30 second clips to two minute clips and posting them. And a couple of them have gone viral, to 400,000, a hundred thousand, a lot of these are going over 50,000 people. We’re getting a bigger, and bigger, and bigger presence, which is awesome. But it’s a cool platform because we can go live. So, you’re going to see this stuff live in real time on our TikTok platform. Just go to TikTok. You can download the app.

Frank Curzio: Trust me. It’s worth it. This is my favorite social media app, just because it’s fun, it’s nice, it’s cool. Yes, you’re got to see people in comments and saying stupid things sometimes, but it just, it’s what’s social media should have been designed for. For you to have fun, to see things that you’re interested in, to not be angry. And again, social media companies, we know most of them, they need to make profits just like everybody. Just like healthcare companies, right? The healthcare companies aren’t interested in curing anything, because then, you’re not going to need them anymore. They want to treat it. Treat it forever. That’s what they want to do. Treat, treat, treat, treat, get a million booster shots, right? Not one shot that’s going to help you further. No way. Right? It’s about profits. And, when you look at that business model and how companies always look for profits, it’s look, it’s kind of sad, right? Because you’re seeing, and it’s not just the healthcare industry, right? It goes across so many different industries where profits are much more important.

Frank Curzio: So, when you look at social media guys, it’s how do they generate profits? They generate profits through page views. And how do they get page views? Not just page views, but you want people on your platform as long as possible. That’s why they really target young kids. And you’re seeing it with girls, even my daughters who are on social media. I’m starting to get them off Instagram, Snapchat. Yeah. Their friends are on there. I have to get them off there. I mean, my daughter, what it’s doing to young girls is incredible. I mean it, it brainwashes them and makes them feel insecure.

Frank Curzio: And what else do they do, right? They’re promoting politics because they’re going to get more page views by making people angry. By making people pissed off at each other. Right? And, that’s what they want to do. And that’s what these platform have become with social media. Facebook, not as bad, you get to accept your friends, stuff like that. But Twitter, Twitter’s crazy now. So, when you’re looking at TikTok, it’s an awesome, awesome platform. It’s something that I love. We’re getting major, major traction. And I know some of you might be like, “Well, social media.” We’re also going to be broadcasting a lot of stuff on our Curzio Research YouTube channel.

Frank Curzio: And remember, when it comes to YouTube, TikTok is a little different, but YouTube’s very dangerous, because YouTube could pull you. I have a lot of people who were posting stuff that got, if you had the wrong opinion on vaccines. Opinion, if you had an opinion on it that wasn’t part of the opinion they wanted, they would pull you, right? It’s their platform. They’ll pull everything, they own all your content. It’s gone. We have our own services here. It’s cool. We’re going to see stuff on our Curzio Research website. So, but we’re going to be posting a lot of these videos where you can watch. Just go to TikTok. You can download that app. Again, that’s for free. I don’t get paid by TikTok, but just go to Frank Curzio and you’ll see. You’ll see a lot of our videos that we posted and little snippets of different things with the podcasts.

Frank Curzio: And it’s really cool, because for TikTok you need content. We’re one of the few that have content almost every single day, because I do this podcast every single day. So just posting really cool stuff and a couple of my rants, and different things, and ideas has resulted in a lot of people sharing our material. And that’s our job. If you’re a shareholder through our token, is when you open up a business, you’re going to probably do pretty good. And yeah, the people who know you are going to subscribe, especially if you’ve been around for a while, which we’ve been. Now, our job is to get the Curzio Research name out to everyone and say, “Hey, you know what? We got a really good platform. We give a shit about you. We’re going to try to make you money. We’re not always going to be right, but we’re going to be there for you all the time.” And it’s resulting a lot of new people coming onto our platform, right? That’s how you build a business.

Frank Curzio: And TikTok, we’re realizing, “Holy cow.” It’s a market that’s new, it’s a market that our competitors don’t really have the content to compete, in terms of video. And, we’re exploding right now, where it’s like 50 to a hundred new names are signing up on a daily basis. And it’s really, really cool. So, I’m excited about it. So, you’re going to be able to see everything live, short videos. We’re going to be posting pictures every place, through the social media platforms. So, you could follow us again @FrankCurzio on TikTok. Go to our Curzio Research YouTube page. I may post a few things on Twitter here and there, but doing all this for you guys. And it’s important, because when you’re looking at this event, I have come up with more great ideas and made subscribers more money, going to this conference than any conference I’ve ever been to.

Frank Curzio: And in 2020, I remember, I said, “Here’s my best large cap pick. And here’s my best small cap pick.” And, the small cap pick was Kodak. And you could see my video at Curzio Research YouTube page, just a two minute video. I said, “Guys, I’m going to give you my small cap pick, get ready to laugh at me when I say this, but it’s Kodak.” It had two booths, which is very, very expensive to have one booth, but it had two different booths. Talking to them, there was like some kind of excitement there. And I’m like, “Man, Kodak, what’s Kodak?” I thought they… I didn’t even know Kodak was still a publicly traded company. It went bankrupt and then they came out of bankruptcy. And, I started doing a little homework on it. I couldn’t find too much research, but some of the insiders are buying it like crazy. I said, “Guys, just pay attention to this stock.” It was at $3.

Frank Curzio: Within a few months, it went to 20. They got a major contract, $700 million contract with the government. Yes, it was a back and forth, and going after Donald Trump, and why’d they get them. And so, a lot of it was basically a witch hunt, but obviously they knew something was in the works, right? That’s what happens when the insiders buy and nobody, nobody, nobody saw insiders buying, because Kodak was such a small company, off everyone’s radar. Even the insider sites that pick up the insider buying didn’t catch that, because the company was too small on a market cap basis. And we’re talking about a couple months later, right? I mean, things are different where we have crypto holdings that you’ll see 20X, 30X gains, even with the pullback in crypto over the past month or two. But, those types of gains in that short of a period in the stock market are very difficult to get these days.

Frank Curzio: And those are incredible returns, but even going back years and years, and years, just learning about the Internet of Things before anybody else with Chambers, I think it was 2012, talking about it. Long about AI and then coming back and telling you how disappointed I was, because for two straight years, there was no innovations. Everything was a play on 5G and AI, and enhancing those trends. This year’s different. We got a lot of blockchain companies out there, which is going to be a lot, a lot of fun. You’re going to see metaverse companies. I mean, startups. So, the innovation even taking place in crypto, and the things that are going on is really cool. And having access to these companies and have them reach out to us, because we have done a token, they know we have a media badge. So, once we sign up for media, I give them access to email me and pitch me basically after, and they’re like, “Hey, we’ll get an interview with this person, that person.” Then, I’ll do the research on this over the past week, two weeks. Again, during the holidays, I’m doing all this work.

Frank Curzio: Now, I’m setting up exactly where I want to go, who I want to see. And that’s where I find my best ideas. I’m not going to give you my best, best, best ideas, unless you’re a paid subscriber. That’s going to show up in my newsletters, but it’s going to be entertaining as hell. You see drones flying around, you see autonomous vehicles driving around, you see races. It’s robots, actual robots coming up to you and talking to you like you would think… So, it’s not a person, it’s a robot. It’s unbelievable. But just seeing this technology up front, and then learning about it and the innovations behind it, man, we were ahead of so many different trends in technology because I’ve gone to this show, have amazing contacts.

Frank Curzio: I actually take tours with professionals who have access two, three days before, that really know what the best products are going to be. And they take me to that on day one. And then, on the next two days, I’m bringing my video team down and they’re going to broadcast all this stuff. So, they’re taping me going to all these things and now I’m setting up all meetings. So, it’s a lot of fun. I mean the education, what you learn, it’s really cool. And I like to keep the videos short. You’ll see lots of pictures, all the amazing EVs and cars. I mean, you’re looking at Mercedes, holy cow. You got to see, Mercedes came out with their new EV, which is really exciting. So, just a lot of buzz going on right now. A lot of buzz going on right now. And again, it’s early, and I’m going to be able to provide lots of video, lots of footage for you. But this is like really, really cool stuff that I love to do. I just love to do this.

Frank Curzio: And I produce a lot of winners, a lot of ideas, because I look at this differently. Some people are covering for the media and they want to get page views. Me, I’m looking at it from an investment perspective. I’m making sure that the companies I’m seeing are publicly traded, or companies that I might want to invest in with the Curzio One membership if they’re private. Just different things that we there. That’s Eureka Park, where that Sands’ Expo, and they’re going to have 700 new companies from all different countries, which is really cool. But I’ll take you through that as well. But I’m going to be broadcasting live. I’m going to be broadcasting, having great things, 30 seconds or two minute videos on a lot of these new technologies, and it’s going to be really, really cool.

Frank Curzio: So again, if you are a follower, you’re going to get all this stuff for free. If you go to TikTok or if you go to our Curzio Research YouTube platform, also our Curzio Research website, we’re going to come up with the best content. So, we’re not going to release all of our content, but our best content strictly to subscribers. And then, we’re going to come up with my truly best ideas, ideas that I’m going to invest in, after I recommend them to you in our future newsletters. You get a head start by a lot of the things I’m going to see. So, you’re going to see me recommend a lot of new companies through this over the next month or two, do some more due diligence, reach out to the company again, for things that I like, but I always find new ideas here. And it’s a really, really exciting time. Even though I’m going to have to wear a mask and broadcast with that mask on. I am vaccinated.

Frank Curzio: And still people like, a couple of companies, I think it was Microsoft. Microsoft doesn’t really have a big presence there. It’s not like that they have the tablets there, or different tech, a software company there with everything. Same with Apple. Apple never shows up there, even though everyone’s talking about Apple. Google, I think is still going to be there. I think they’re still going to be there. But a couple companies are saying they’re going to do virtual, but still a lot of major companies. And I think that it’s smaller, it’s going to be so much better. I think Sony and Samsung are going to kill it, because they do not cancel. Even LG. Those are the three biggest companies every single year at CES. And they’re going to steal the spotlight, because other companies aren’t going to be there. I think Qualcomm’s still going to be there, which should be pretty cool. They always talk about their 5G, their new technology. Intel, I think, said that they’re going virtual, but I’m going to give you access to all this stuff. Really, really cool stuff, and just give you my opinion on it.

Frank Curzio: So, it should be a lot of fun. So, to recap, the next three days, you’re stuck with Daniel. But Daniel, I’m going to be reporting to Daniel. He’s going to give you all the details on Wednesday, Thursday, and even Friday for our special podcast, which is Frankly Speaking. He’ll do the Friday podcast and I’m going to be flying back home on Saturday. But he’s going to get a head start on everything that I’m going over with, and you could watch everything that I’m doing through TikTok @FrankCurzio, or Curzio Research YouTube page. So, if you have any questions or comments, if you’re going to be at the CES, email me, frank@curzioresearch.com. I might be able to meet with you.

Frank Curzio: I am extremely busy. A lot of people ask me, “I want to go with you. I want to go with you.” And I tell them, “No.” A lot of people. I’m not even talking about my employees. I’m talking about friends who are big in different industries like, “Oh, Frank, I’d like to go there.” I’m like, “I can’t. I can’t give you any attention because that’s how busy I am.” Going to all these companies and researching, doing the interviews. It’s a lot of work that goes behind this and I enjoy it. I really do enjoy this, because I’m always learning something. And there’s some brilliant, brilliant people there. And these aren’t CEOs and management teams pitching their stock, which every CEO, including me, is always going to give you an optimistic report, and be like, “Yeah, our company.”

Frank Curzio: A lot of people talk, they’re going to talk great about their company, right? It’s their company. You’re talking to employees who’ve been there for 10, 15 years. You’re talking to different people within the booths, and they’re just knowledgeable. They’re cool. They’re real. And that’s where you find the best information. It’s like if you go onto a mining site, talk to the employees, don’t talk to the management team. Management team’s going to tell you exactly what you want to hear. Right? They want you to buy the stock. The management team. If you’re looking at the employees, they’re going to tell you much, much more. You’re going to get a better indication. I mean, I’ve done that when I’m in the Permian, and just talking to roughnecks and you just, it’s crazy. Just, I’ve learned that how big of a presence GE was, going all in on oil and gas. And this was before they really had a major presence in there, right?

Frank Curzio: So, learning that, I didn’t learn that from any place. But I learned that from the people who were in the industry, who are working at some of these companies, and it’s cool. You get a lot of great information. They see everything. This is their life. They’re going to know more than me. I mean, I could teach them the stocks and what’s good. What’s a good value and stuff like that. But really getting in depth from someone who’s worked at a company for 10, 15 years, they’re going to know everything. The positives, the negatives, what’s going on, the growth model, how the company’s great right now. And, it’s a lot of money to showcase your stuff there.

Frank Curzio: So a lot of these companies, I’d say 80, 85% are probably don’t really need to be there, but that 15%, those guys need to be there. They’re showcasing their technology. You’re going to see it everywhere, but you’re going to get a nice inside scoop from where I’m going to be. So, if you want to, if there’s a company out there that you’re like, “Hey, Frank, can you take a look at this? Or did you see this?” Or, “I have a friend that’s there, or he’s going to be there at the CES.” I had a couple people reach out and say, “Can you visit this booth? These guys have great technology, and it’s a friend of mine.” I might be able to go. I might be walking past that. So, let me know. I’m here for you, right? This is what it’s about. It’s about the network effect.

Frank Curzio: And as I’m providing all this information, I can’t tell you how many emails I get from people who actually work at these companies. Even the Fortune 500 companies, even hedge fund companies, even people who are interns like, “Frank, I work here. This is what’s going on.” That’s what the network is about. That gives us more information, and the world revolves around information and how fast you get it. I’m not talking about inside information. I’m just talking about going out there to the conferences, going out there and being there in person, being in the room. That’s where you find the best ideas early, not by reading an article that’s out to the world, that so many other people have read already, right? You want to be the first person publishing this stuff. And we’ve been able to do that for a very, very long time going to the CES. So really, really exciting stuff. Any questions or comments, feel free to email me, frank@curzioresearch.com. Once again, TikTok will be broadcasting all this stuff in our Curzio Research YouTube page.

Frank Curzio: And, I want to wish you all, happy New Year. Hopefully, kick ass, a lot of profits. It’s going to be a pretty cool year. It’s going to be very volatile. It’s going to be nuts. The Fed raising rates, we’ll cover that later on, but right now it’s the CES. Then I have a conference to go in the Bahamas, which is going to be awesome. I’ll tell you guys more about that. I think it’s on the 17th and 18th. Then we have also, the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, where a lot of these biotech companies have gotten smoked. It’s been a terrible performing sector in the last half of the year in 2021. And this is the conference. JP Morgan is where they announce a lot of their internal results of phase one, and phase two. And, I mean, I’ve seen companies doubled and triple from there. I’ve also seen companies get nailed, too, if they don’t provide enough data or data, that’s going to satisfy the analysts and everybody there.

Frank Curzio: But that’s a very, very big conference. January’s going to be a crazy month. Lots of ideas, lots of fun. Back to work for me. I’ll do all the work for you. You guys just have to listen and watch, which is really cool. So listen, happy New Year. I’m looking forward to starting off with a bang and look forward to sharing lots and lots of new ideas with you. So, definitely tune in tomorrow. Daniel going to be providing you updates on everything I’m seeing at CES. That’s it for me, and I’ll be reporting to you. Live video, everything, during the week. Look forward to seeing you. Take care.
