What were the hot stocks last century?

Recommended Posts

rep1

stocks and entire sectors. and where are they now, if not dead?

 

Steel industry and oil were something big yes? People here must have been a lot over the last century.

I wonder what lasts, other than the military, not a good time to enter this year.

Banks and breweries seem to do well over time in Oz.

WMT, IBM and MSFT would have set you up nicely if you invested early.

True, banks in Oz pay good dividends, with some good tax benefits for Australian tax residents as well.

But they have also had good growth as well. Commonwealth Bank, for example first listed on the stock exchange in 1991 at an issue price of $5.40.  The shares have traded around between $72 and $82 dollars this year.  Similarly with ANZ bank. At the same time CBA listed, ANZ bank was trading around the $3.70 mark. this year it's been trading around the $26 -$28 mark.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not recommending Oz bank shares.  There's currently a Royal Commission into our banking and financial services industry underway, and who knows where that will lead? :(

I put a little in all three crisper9 companies, and medical robotics.

Was medic/bio also a profitable sector last century?

are being developed and used by big tech companies such as amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Alphabet etc.

No AI specific stock I can find. Related ETFs are scams.

Not a bad idea to diversfy here as things are early and it is hard to say which if any particular company  will see things through to commercialization.  Of course CRSP is moving into crspr-13 so again, technology is changing.  On the other hand Sangamo is favored by many and they use an 'older' zinc finger nuclease technique which is more natural and so perhaps has a better safety profile.  They recently were the first to apply gene editing to a live patient--results should be out soon and if good you will be saying "i wish i had me some of that".   If bad, well there's always the Car-T immuno stuff to help you recoup your losses.

20th century?  Lots of pharma companies grew big time, how could they not given the development of aspirin, insulin, antibiotics, etc.?
