Are you looking for investment options? Are you interested in stock exchange? If so, how about investing in Nanotechnology stocks? Nanotechnology is a growing industry with a huge potential to change our lives, and as we all know releasing life-changing products and services are the best way to accomplish the main goal of every company – increasing the wealth of shareholders!
Similarly to the software industry from back in late 80′s and early 90′s (remember the IPO of Microsoft in 1986?) Nanotechnology is beginning to manifest its prowess on the market and soon everybody will realize that it’s the best thing since sliced bread but if you want a nice big ROI waiting until everybody jumps on the bandwagon will be too late!
Here are my choices for top 3 Nanotechnology Stocks Worth Investing in on the American Stock Exchange (NASDAQ):
- Daystar Technologies, Inc (NASDAQ: DSTI)
- Acadia Pharmaceuticals, Inc (NASDAQ: ACAD)
- Sandisk Corp (NASDAQ: SNDK)
Now, lets look at each of those companies, what they do, and why their stock is a good investment idea.
Daystar Technologies, Inc – Daystar Technologies is a company that develops, markets, and manufactures Photovoltaic Foil. More specifically, Daystar Technologies developed CIGS, that is a thin-film solar cell based upon the copper-indium-gallium-selenide semiconductor material system. CIGS are flexible solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity.
The idea of solar power has been around for quite some time, since 1839 as a matter of fact when French physicist Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel experimentally demonstrated the photovoltaic effect. At the age of 19, he built the World’s first photovoltaic cell while experimenting in his father’s laboratory. Commercially speaking, solar power still hasn’t taken off at the scale that scientists and businessmen were predicting back in the 1980′s and 1990′s. Light and flexible cells such as those produced by Daystar Technologies are key to convincing businesses and individuals that solar power is indeed worth our effort. It is happening, little by little the solar power industry is experiencing exponential growth and now is a good time to invest in their stock, especially since Nanotechnology is offering more and more solutions to increase the efficiency and viability of using solar cells.
Acadia Pharmaceuticals, Inc – Acadia is a biopharmaceutical company self-described as one that is ”focused on innovative treatments that address unmet medical needs in neurological and related central nervous system disorders.” Their main area of expertise are small molecule drugs developed and produced for just that purpose.
Now, why pharmaceuticals and why Acadia? Well, mainly because of Pimavanserin (ACP-103) – even though the drug failed the Phase III clinical trials for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease psychosis, it is in Phase II (as ACP-104) trials for adjunctive treatment of schizophrenia alongside an antipsychotic medication.
Sandisk Corp – you might recognize this company as a manufacture of flash drives. As the third position of our top three Nanotechnology stocks worth investing in, the Sandisk stock offers a low-risk option. Their storage products, such as removable cards and universal serial bus flash drives, are used in a large variety of enterprise and consumer electronics from digital cameras and mobile phones to gaming consoles and MP3 players. Their Extreme USB 3.0 drive won the PC Magazine’s Best of 2012 Award in the storage category.
Sandisk is a leader in it’s class and is here to stay. As soon as flash drives entered the market they exploded due to consumer interest. Even though the first USB flash drive entered the market over a dozen years ago in 2000, I believe the product is still far from it’s maturity stage. The flash drives are smaller, fancier, and more powerful every year – that leaves Sandisk with a lot of room for introduction of new products and current market’s dependence on its technology guarantees stable prospects for the future.
This list of top three Nanotechnology companies with stock worth investing in is by no means a professional advice of a stock broker, just my personal opinion, so please feel free to share your thoughts on my list and the direction of the Nanotech industry as a whole!
