      Hi David. It is fine to question someone's argument - In fact we actively encouraged smart debate. But we don't accept personal insults on this platform.

      Her arguments are so outrageous you should not accept her on this platform.

      Whats next? Flat-earthers on RV? A lot of your subscribers will believe her and lose all their money.

      Its very easy to prove that cathie is either a liar or not so smart. so what I said is not really an insult, I can prove it with facts. For instance the full self-driving at tesla is the worst in the industry and everyone is still very far away from reaching that technology. yet she says its ready to invest. what does that tell you about her?

      If something sounds preposterous I want to hear about it, this is how one learns, by constantly checking assumptions and looking for alternative viewpoints. Grant was looking for Tesla bulls too. On the other hand it is a bit misleading to present two opposing thesis of something (tesla crash vs tesla moon) and when something eventually happens then say: "see, RealVision predicted this". I don't have the solution, since the mission of RV is to help people, but RV should try not to fall into this trap.

      Just over a year later and Cathie’s ARKK funds have performed well while Tesla is over $800. I certainly didn’t see this coming but Cathie and her team have so far been proven right. I wouldn’t bet against them at this point. Hope your returns on your ideas have been as good as Cathie’s.

    I love this futuristic stuff. Thx guys! Would be great to bring each of the analysts for 30min to 1hr long discussions of these trends. Not stocks but really more how these technologies evolving and being used and tech roadmaps and bottlenecks

    It's great to listen to analysts that get deep into their subject area, something i wish i had more time to do. I noticed RV put Cathie's video from last March (2018) back up recently, all the stocks she mentioned in the DNA editing space are down over 50% since then and so its a shame she didn't at least revisit her views on whether she still sees value in those names.

    It's an ok overview, but mostly an intro to the company. Let's see if followed by more specific ideas in the future.

    Very interesting, I found this video to be very informative on what is coming next -- sure we all heard of them before but its great that young people like we have just seen are actual running with these ideas -- Great piece, thanks RV

    Broadly speaking I agree that most of these ideas will come to fruition in the future. But as they as a company are "invested" in the ideas so much that the tilted is exclusively to the long side. Unfortunately not much more value relative to been told to "buy and hold these sectors because it will get better." That's dollar cost averaging.

    It would have helped for each interviewee to at least mention one company leading the way in each space or an ETF? PRNT had been mentioned in previous videos for exposure to the 3D printing space. Nothing really actionable here unless your already in the know.

      You're right. This was intended as a quick-fire (and fascinating) overview film to inspire further investigation

    Excellent content with really clean Product delivery. I know I’m piqued when the first thing I do after the disclaimer is hit the thumbs up and watch again later buttons......and then shake my head, sigh and say to myself “now that’s vintage RV at it’s best!
