  • On March 23rd, the containership ever given was on a trip from Malaysia to Netherland.

  • Nothing unusual, the Taiwanese company has completed hundreds if not thousands such journeys

  • before. In order to save time and fuel, ships often

  • take the Suez canal paying huge fees. This route is so important that over 12 percent

  • of world trade passes through this canal. So if something hypothetically goes wrong

  • in this canal, you can imagine the magnitude of damage it could potentially cause. Well

  • that's exactly what happened on March 23rd. The 400 meters long and 59 meters wide ship

  • has blocked the path of other vessels that carry everything from consumer products to

  • beverages. The problem with the Suez canal is that there are no alternatives. Ships would

  • have to take the long journey across the entire African continent, which means higher transportation

  • costs which mean higher prices. If 2020 brought us covid, 2021 was about to

  • destroy one of the most important shipping routes. What do you think is going to happen

  • in 2022? I don't even want to think about it.

  • What matters at the end of the day is what stocks do you hold in your portfolio because

  • no matter what happens, someone is going to jump in and take advantage out of that crisis

  • no matter how bad the crises is. And if you are one of the shareholders of that company,

  • you are going to benefit from it. Here in this video, I would share some of my favorite

  • stocks with you that I am carefully watching. So give this video thumbs, and lets get rich

  • into it. 


  • Number Zoom Zoom has been one of the best-perfuming stocks

  • of 2020. Everyone knows that it was the stock that you should have invested on the first

  • day when you heard the news of a lockdown. Because on The same when everyone had to stay

  • at home, they had to somehow connect with their friends, colleagues and everyone started

  • googling - best video calling apps. Of course, we had options like Skype and others,

  • but the question is - how did Zoom step out of the competition? What made zoom better

  • than the rest? Why did people choose to use zoom and not any other video conferencing

  • app? You see, platforms like Skype have been created

  • for voice calls. When video calling started becoming popular, they just integrated video

  • options into their systems. However, that wasn't the case with zoom because the entire

  • system from ground zero was built to make video conferencing as smooth as possible.

  • The platform was initially built to give users the best possible video experience.

  • If you have ever used zoom, you know what I am talking about. It has all these cool

  • features integrated within it that make it the best platform to conduct meetings. And

  • if you want someone to join the meeting, all you have to do is send them a link. It's as

  • simple as thatJust to give you an idea of how fast zoom

  • has been growing lately. In 2019, it had around 10 million active users. In 2021, it has over

  • 300 million users. That's a huge increase in such a short period of time. It seems like

  • Eric Yuan, who is the CEO of zoom, has been preparing for such an opportunity his entire

  • life. No one, of course, expected that a global pandemic would hit the world so hard that's

  • why other companies couldn't come up with a quick solution and zoom literally conquered

  • the entire market. However, as more people are getting vaccinated, people are worried

  • that zoom is going to become irrelevant. People would go back to offices, and things will

  • get back to normal, and we will no longer need zoom to conduct meetings.

  • Even the stock hasn't fully recovered since the recent correction. It's down by almost

  • 40 percent since October 2020 and 20 percent since February.

  • The question is, will people stop using zoom and get back to normal meetings, or its just

  • the beginning of video conferences? The answer to this question will help to understand

  • whether zoom is going to become one day a trillion-dollar company or not.

  • If you ask me, this shift to video conferences should have happened sooner or later. It was

  • not a matter if it's going to happen, but when and the pandemic simply a ccelerated

  • that processAs life gets back to normal, people will get

  • back to offices, but not like it was before the pandemic.

  • Many companies have already told their employees that even after the pandemic, they don't need

  • to come to the office every single day but can do their job perfectly fine from home

  • and coming to the office twice or trice a week is enough.

  • Secondly, companies use to spend fortunes on corporate flights. Executives would spend

  • millions every year just to fly to different cities to conduct meetings. If you take a

  • look at the aviation industry, a big chunk of their profits use to come from corporate

  • flights, but 2020 has taught us that companies can save millions by simply getting a zoom

  • subscription. Not to say that companies won't fly their

  • employees again, but that's definitely going to decrease. Video conferencing is the next

  • step in globalization where we can conduct meetings, start projects without physically

  • being in one place. So I think it's just the beginning for zoom, and in the next few years,

  • the stock is going to grow significantly. 


  • 2. The second company that seems really promising is Square.

  • I am an investor in this company, so I could be a little biased. That's a little disclaimer.

  • If there is one company everyone wished they invested in before the pandemic besides zoom,

  • then it's Square. It might not be popular on Twitter or other social media, but its

  • stock has been growing like there is no tomorrow. Since December 2020, the stock has grown by

  • over 330 percent. Where else would you get such a return? One of the co-founders of the

  • company is Jack Dorsey, the guy who co-founded Twitter.

  • Using his experience in Twitter, he grew Square faster than you can imagine. It started as

  • a peer-to-peer transaction app, nothing serious but it can now be the center of your digital

  • financial universe. You can use Square literally for everything. Consumers can use it to buy

  • and sell stocks, deposit paychecks, buy Bitcoin, and pay businesses for goods and services

  • And that's just one part of their business because the other part is businesses. You

  • see. In order to accept credit cards, business usually had to purchases gadgets, set up everything

  • and then pay a little fee out of every transaction which might be a struggle for small businesses

  • who are just trying to get on their feet where every penny makes a difference.

  • That's when Square comes into the picture. The founders realized that your phone or tablet

  • already has all the tools it needs to read credit cards. All that is left is an extra

  • tool to swipe that card which they started shipping to small businesses for free, but

  • in return, they would charge a tiny fee out of every transaction, a fee that's smaller

  • than what visa, for example, changes. Suddenly, a small business could start accepting

  • credit cards for no upfront cost. On top of that, businesses had access to a dashboard

  • where they could view all of their data to make better financial decisions. But that

  • date was shared with Square. Since everyone uses credit cards nowadays

  • and cash is slowly disappearing, Square knows how good these businesses are performing.

  • It has access to all their transactions, so it started also acting like a bank giving

  • small loans to small businesses. Square can make a more accurate decision whether loaning

  • to this company is a good idea or not because it has access to their transactions. It has

  • already provided loans worth billions of dollars, and it's even selling these loans in form

  • of securities to other institutional investors. Its CashApp, which allows people to send and

  • receive money also been growing at a tremendous speed and has already around 40 million users.

  • The pandemic forced even small businesses to entirely stop accepting cash which only

  • pushed more small businesses to use SquareThe company is already valued at over 100

  • billion dollars, and it might seem like there is little room for it left to grow, but I

  • think it can completely with visa on a much bigger scale and still grow.
