Beyond Mere Valuation: Finding True Alpha in Underappreciated Megatrends

Ophir Gottlieb, CEO of Capital Market Laboratories, has a different framework than the traditional stock-picker. Rather than searching for underappreciated companies in established industries, Gottlieb finds technological megatrends that themselves are underappreciated and overlooked by institutional investors such as cloud computing, streaming, e-commerce, and Web 3.0. Gottlieb gives a deep-dive on cloud computing stocks Digital Ocean ($DOCN), a central cloud platform powered by community, and Nutanix Inc ($NTNX), a pure-play in hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Gottlieb discusses why he remains very bullish on streaming company Roku ($ROKU) even after its more than 1,100% rise. He argues that institutional investors can fall into “cognition traps” by ignoring secular tech trends, which gives tremendous opportunities to retail investors. Gottlieb also discusses how he puts on positions by buying stocks as well as options. Other companies discussed include PagerDuty Inc ($PD), Shopify Inc ($SHOP), NVIDIA Corporation ($NVDA), Applied Materials ($AMAT), and Jumia Technologies ($JMIA).
