Advances in areas such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics are now opening up the possibility of tailoring medicine, nutrition and disease prevention to the individual. Together with emerging technologies like synthetic biology and nanotechnology, they are laying the foundation for a revolution in healthcare and well-being that will be less resource intensive and more targeted to individual needs."
ike every other aspect of our lives, technology is rapidly changing and entirely reshaping healthcare systems all over the world. These days, with the advent of sophisticated new technologies, a doctor or surgeon doesn’t even have to be in the same room or operating theatre to consult or perform a procedure.

When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future.

One of the things I have shared on this blog is that I maintain a watchlist of 100 stocks. I think it’s part of an effective discipline to focus one’s research efforts. Unless one is devoting their full-time to researching stocks, 100 is likely too large a number, but it works for me. These are the stocks I follow most closely, including listening to quarterly earnings calls (or reading transcripts), tracking daily news and evaluating technicals and valuation on a regular basis.
