Patent Play Stocks

With the surge of acquisitions in the intellectual property space, I have created a list of publicly traded companies with patents that might be classified as disruptive.

In my book, How To Find Big Stocks, I discuss how intellectual property is the new "raw material" for the U.S. economy and the Internet is the new manufacturing and distribution system.

I give you a tool that spots waves and Big Stocks in them.

The How To Find Big Stocks Newsletter highlights companies we feel are poised to turn into Big Stocks.

Patents and ways to monetize them, represent a huge investable wave coming.

QTMM would be one of those two companies. Their ability to mass produce Quantum Dots for commercial applications will "play a key role in this massive investable wave" for the following reasons:

The applications for uses of Quantum Dots is exploding!

Scott, NVIV has many patents on the spinal cord injuries, not sure if its disruptive but no competition in a huge market!

InVivo’s proprietary technology was co-invented by Robert S. Langer, ScD, the David H. Koch Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Joseph P. Vacanti, MD, affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital. The patent rights that are the basis for InVivo’s products are under an exclusive, worldwide license from Children’s Medical Center Corporation and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Data on InVivo’s technology was first published in PNAS in 2002 and has since been demonstrated to successfully promote functional recovery following traumatic spinal cord injury in several models including rodent and non-human primate models. Data from InVivo’s pilot non-human primate study was published in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods in 2010.
