For most of history, companies have managed assets such as property, plants, equipment, inventory, cash, and intellectual property.
In today's digital world, a new type of strategic asset is emerging…
I'm talking about, data.
Many of the world's most innovative companies collect, report, analyse and deliver vast volumes of data.
And it's become a key measure of whether a company will remain relevant through the digital revolution.
In fact, this industry is booming!
For instance, in 2015, the data industry generated $122 billion in global revenue. In 2019, this figure jumped to $189 billion.
By 2022, revenue generated globally will soar to $274 billion!

The tech driving the data revolution
Data isn’t something you can see or touch. But it exists. And it has to exist somewhere. For example, when I write this to you, I’m creating data. Every keystroke creates more data.
And this data exists on a hard drive, or in the cloud. But even in the cloud, it’s still data that exists in a physical location.
These physical locations are called data centres. They are huge buildings filled with racks upon racks of servers and data storage devices. These data centres are crucial to the operation of some of the world’s biggest and most powerful companies.
For example, when you log in to Facebook, all the information you see, anything you search for, is pulled instantaneously from Facebook’s data centres… wherever in the world they may exist.
And to pull that information in real time and present it to you in a way that you like, these data centres need the fastest, most cutting-edge technology on earth. And nothing else works as fast under that much stress, as a Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) can.
A GPU or graphics card is a piece of hardware that produces the image you see on a monitor. To produce these images, it converts data into a signal your monitor can understand.
This is where the opportunity lies for investors…
From the man who bought bitcoin for just $12…
“If you want to make a killing from cryptocurrencies – read this book as FAST as you bloody can!”
Anyone with a tiny stake to spare could reap thousands – even tens of thousands of rands – from this erupting financial market.
That’s why I’ll rush out your personal digital copy for just R100.
That’s it. For a limited time, R100 is all it costs to get your guide to the biggest wealth creation event in history…
Companies that develop cutting-edge GPUs stand to make a windfall from this data boom
A few stocks that will benefit are Nvidia, even Intel.
However, in the January issue of the South African Investor we’ve pinpointed one GPU provider to outpace them all and deliver mega profits to savvy investors.
This tech guru provides GPUs to some of the world’s biggest companies, to ensure they can get data into and out of data centres at lightning speeds.
Some of its biggest customers include Chinese tech giants Baidu, JD.com and Tencent. And US tech stalwarts Google and Twitter.
And if that doesn’t excite you, just look at year-on-year 2019 fourth quarter results:
• The company Boosted revenue by 50%
• Grew operating income more than 12x, from $28 million to $348 million
• QUANDRUPLED its net income from $38 million to $170 million
• MORE THAN TRIPLED its earnings per share, from $0.04 to $0.15
In short, this company’s tech will power and define many of the innovations coming to us in the years ahead. And early investors who buy this share today could be in for unimaginable gains over the long-term.
See you next week.
