Not all investors rely solely on their own intuition and research to select the stocks they will invest in for their portfolios. Part of the research they may conduct is weighing the recommendations of experienced investors who have made successful investments and whose advice is sought by many.

One such experienced investor is Paul Mampilly. Born in India, he has made the US his home after attending university here and has accumulated over 20 years of experience on Wall Street employed in upper level positions in research analysis and portfolio management. He has been able to retire at the age of 42, and now spends his time sharing his knowledge and guidance with other investors. One of the tools he uses is the publication of a monthly newsletter, “Profits Unlimited,” where he keeps users abreast of trends as they are unfolding. He also provides trading services and conducts informational seminars.

One of the predictions Paul Mampilly has made is that political conditions will be favorable for business, mostly due to the fact that there will more than likely not be much legislation passed because of the constant gridlock in Congress. Businesses can more than likely expect little change in regulations for the next couple of years.

Several of the predictions made by Paul Mampilly involve the growth and availability of several technologies. These include the growing accessibility of Big Data for smaller companies and more targeted marketing possible because of the increase in the accessibility and popularity of devices such as cell phones and tablets. Edge computing and the expected increase of virtual reality technology are also areas he predicts will provide growing investment opportunities as well as the growing accessibility of major data gathered through social media usage and the use of online reviews to influence purchasing decisions.

Another prediction that Paul Mampilly has made concerns home appreciation rates. He predicts a slowing of the rate as compared to the increases experienced by homeowners in recent years.
