How Did We Do? 2011 Frager Factor Cloud Stock Tip Turned $7,000 into Over $100,000

$7,000 isn't a lot of money in the investing world -- most financial advisors will likely tell you to put that small sum into a low-cost index fund. While that's certainly a sound conservative strategy, investors should also note that $7,000 placed on the right stock can blossom into hundreds of thousands of dollars within a few years.

One industry that has excelled at delivering multi-bagger returns is the cloud software market. The cloud market has been on fire over the past two decades, as higher internet speeds made it more practical and cost efficient to remotely store and access documents. Look at just two cloud stocks from our 2011 index that turned $7,000 into small fortunes within relatively short time frames -- (NYSE:CRM), and Citrix Systems (NASDAQ:CTXS). Many others had similar gains.

Since we can only go forward, not back, here's what to look for when making the next multi-bagger investment: Possibility thinking! Possibility-thinking is the art of taking the ‘ordinariness’ of what is, and transforming into the ‘extraordinariness’ of what might be. As Edison said "invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration [persistipation?]". Be very stubborn about solving a problem, but be flexible about the definition of the true problem and be very flexible and open minded about the form of the solution. 

Learn from the past. Like the invention of the Telescope - Always Keep Your Eyes Open: An extreme example of people keeping their eyes closed (literally and figuratively) was the simple experiment that led to the invention of the telescope and microscope. It took more than 300 years after eyeglasses were in common use before Hans Uppershey, in 1608, observed the joint magnifying action of two lenses, built a simple telescope and then took action to publish his findings! Shortly afterwards Galileo applied the telescope to the study of the planets and quickly discovered that the "facts" of classical philosophy were wrong. When he invited the scholars of the day to look through his telescope and see for themselves they refused!

Inventions Result from a Combination of Ideas from Different Sources and Technologies: (-: Borrowing from one source is called plagiarism, but borrowing from more than one source is called research :-) [And is probably patentable!]

Source of New Product Opportunities: Eric Von Hipple of the MIT Business School made many studies of the sources of innovation in the electronics industry and concluded that more than 70% of the product innovations came from the users, who initially can't find the tools or equipment they need on the market and are forced to develop them in-house.

Have a GREAT day!
