Welcome back everybody to white board finance
as you know by now. My name is Marko and I’m here to help you master your money and build
your wealth. Today we’re talking about a very hot topic. We’re talking about the block chain
baby. So block chain is kind of synonymous with crypto currency and especially with bitcoin.
So there’s a lot of buzz around this technology even though it’s been around for a number
of years now. I think it’s finally starting to come into the mainstream. So in this video
we’re going to go over the five best block chain stocks for 2018. Stay tuned. Number one is Broadridge Financial
Solutions Broadridge is my first pick because they’ve already worked with companies and
other banks that are using block chain technology. They’ve completed a successful pilot test
of a block chain based technology in collaboration with two other large European banks. And this was in October so only about 3 4
months ago they’ve already started completing transactions using their own block chain based
technology. And I think that this is putting them a step ahead everyone else. Their technology
helps to automate operations enhance audit ability and increase both efficiency and speed.
So essentially they’re taking these very complicated financial transactions and making them very
transparent and efficient for everyone to see. So I think that’s a good thing because
it’s giving them more credibility in terms of being transparent and open with their customers
and with their clients. This isn’t Broadridge his first rodeo into block chain either. The
company partnered with J.P. Morgan in 2016 to successfully test this technology with
shareholder proxy voting. So for those of you that are familiar with
annual reports and voting because you you’re a shareholder in a company this is essentially
what that is. So their goal again is to make this more transparent and easier. So considering
Broadridge was already the largest U.S. provider of proxy voting services it made sense for
it to step into this market. Let’s take a look at the fundamentals Broadridge
is growing its bottom line and a pretty solid rate they have earnings coming in at three
dollars and 13 cents a share in 2017 and it’s expected to increase to four dollars and 14
cents a share by 2019. Broadridge has two factors working in its favor that justify
its price and higher evaluations in the future. The first is that they’re a leader within
their industry. So essentially they have 80 percent of outstanding shares for Investor
Communications actually are processed by Broadridge. Think about that for a second. 80 percent
of every outstanding share of every stock out there that communication is processed
through Broadridge. That’s essentially 80 percent of the U.S. market you guys. That
is a huge chunk. Also all top 10 global banks are its clients. Which again leads back to
that first point that they are a leader in their industry. Second their client retention rate is at an
astounding 98 percent. That’s one of the most difficult tasks you guys to be able to retain
the clients that you spend so many marketing dollars to get. So pretend that you’re like
AT&T and Verizon you market market market. You spent all this money to get Marko as a
client and he leaves after one month because he’s not happy with the service. You spent
all that marketing dollars and all that time and energy to acquire a client and then they
leave. So at a 90 percent client retention rate that is really good. And I see there
being a huge part of their valuation for the future. Broadridge also offers a one point six percent
dividend yield and they’ve actually raised that year over year. So I know one point six
percent isn’t the highest dividend yield in the world but I’m actually just looking at
the big picture. If they’re able to raise this consistently that shows that either their
money management is really good that there are corporate management is really good or
that overall that their cash is very strong. So it’s a combination of those three things.
But any company that’s consistently raises dividends is pretty healthy in my opinion.
Obviously the longer they’ve done that the better and Broadridge has done that over the
past few years their one year return has been about thirty six point four eight percent
and their five year return has been about 289 percent. So that means over the course
of five years if you started investing in Broadridge you’ve almost tripled your money
you guys. So those are incredible returns especially
for a financial industry or financial sector company. Broadridge easily checks out on fundamentals
and future growth. So this is why I think it’s going to be a great block chain start
in 2018 and beyond. Number two MasterCard MasterCard announced that it’s
now opening up its block chain to potential merchants and banks as an alternative and
potentially more efficient method of paying for goods and services. MasterCard is also
targeting cross-border payments between businesses as the purpose for its block chain which can
only be used by invitation at this point. MasterCard’s block chain operates independently
of a crypto currency and instead it accepts payments in traditional local money which
is seen by some as a positive. For one. Businesses could cut costs by using
the block chain to send cross-border payments which usually pass through several foreign
banks along the way which means they incur fees at every stop. So MasterCard block chain
however would cut out those middlemen and connect to purchasers bank directly to that
of the supplier. This would remit the payment more efficiently and possibly faster. Let’s
take a look at their fundamentals or some numbers over the past few years. Their one
year return has been forty two point two percent and their five year return has been about
187 percent which is great. The number of major online retailers accepting payment in
bitcoin dropped to just 3 in 2017 which I think is kind of funny compared to 483 who
accept MasterCard and Visa. So I don’t really see this as a threat to MasterCard just yet. And I’m talking about crypto currency. That’s
something you should be aware of. But in the long run I think that MasterCard will adopt
a block chain and they will be a great player in the space for years to come. Number three
fan favorite Microsoft. So I’m just kidding when I say fan favorite. I work for one of
the biggest Microsoft resellers in the Midwest so I’m not coming from a biased opinion. I
just have a pretty deep knowledge and understanding of Microsoft. Microsoft’s business and how
they operate. So Microsoft is committed to bringing block chain to the enterprise and
they’re working with customers partners and block chain community to continue advancing
enterprise readiness through the cocoa framework. So cocoa will be compatible by design with
any ledger protocol and can operate in the cloud and on premise. So take a look at this
screenshot everybody. I’m not going to sit here and read this verbatim
but I do want you to take a look at this and potentially pause the video and read this
for yourselves. I’m going to go straight to the bottom to the last two paragraphs because
I think it’s really important check these out by providing these capabilities Coco offers
a trusted foundation with which existing block chain protocols can be integrated to deliver
complete enterprise ready Leger’s solutions. Opening a broad high skill scenarios across
industries and furthering block chains ability to digital transform business. We have already
begun exploring Koko’s potential across a variety of industries including retail supply
chain and financial services boom that is huge. So by design Coco is going to be open
and compatible with any block chain protocol and Microsoft has already begun integrating
into the crypto currency called Ethereum. So some of you may be. I’m pretty sure most
of you are already familiar with Ethereum. So Microsoft’s intent is to distribute the
source code to the development community in early 18. And that’s why I’m putting them
on my top five block chain stocks to watch for 2018. So let’s take a look at Microsoft’s
one year is thirty seven point three percent. The five year is 219 percent. And what I love
about Microsoft is they have such a solid dividend yield for being still what I consider
somewhat of a growth company. It’s at one point nine six percent. So industry enthusiasm
for block chain is growing. And while it will still take time for block chain to achieve
enterprise scale I think Microsoft is well positioned to adopt it and take over in 2018.
Number four Visa Visa has rolled out the first pilot
phase of its block chain based business to business payment service. It’s called B2B
connect. So this is very similar to MasterCard. Visa plans to use the platform to ease cross-border
payments by Fassett to excuse me by facilitating direct payments between institutions. So again
just like MasterCard they’re cutting out the middleman in the industry which the whole
entire financial sector relies on at this point. So they’re already working with US
based Commerce Bank South Koreas Shin Han bank the Union Bank of Philippines and the
United overseas bank based in Singapore. So Visa’s global head of solutions Kevin Failon
said that the banks are trialing live bank to bank transactions over the platform which
is a really good sign. So following this first phase the project Phase II will set the project
to move to a commercial launch or commercial phase and is slated to occur in the middle
of 2018 which is why visa is on this list you guys. The one year for visa has been about
forty two point two percent are Aui and the five year has been about 183. For those of you that remember I actually
recommended visa as one of my bluechip stocks for 2018. That was in my video call the stocks
for beginners in 2018 and I think them getting involved in blocking just helps the argument
so that’s why I put them on this list as well. Number five Cisco Systems. So Cisco is looking
for ways to move beyond its hardware and block chain to give Cisco a viable path to that
growth. Cisco is one of the 200 companies that are part of the enterprise Ethereum alliance.
So these are governments and companies from all over the world and multiple industries
testing out a version of Ethereum block chain. So I think that this is pretty cool you guys
especially for a company like Cisco who is known to be somewhat conservative in their
growth tactics. What makes Ethereum block chain uniquely attractive
to businesses is that incorporates smart contracts that help verify facilitate or enforce the
negotiation of a contract. So you can take a look at this screenshot. Cisco is also working
to craft its own block chain systems. In October the company filed for the trademark of a block
chain platform that can identify different connected devices. Monitor the activity of
those devices and evaluate how trustworthy those devices are when connected to a network.
It would also continually and automatically assess new devices when added to the network.
So in other words Cisco believes it has a game changing block chain to track the Internet
of Things Internet of Things is getting huge from smart phones to smart printers to smart
refrigerators. I think everything in the future is eventually going to become quote unquote
smart. So this could be a huge play for Cisco. Let’s
take a look at their one year the one year has been about 27 percent and their five year
has been about 88 percent. These are really good gains especially for a company that pays
a solid and great dividend like Cisco does. And I think that with this block chain play
there’s still some room for growth. And those are my top five block chain stocks going into
2018. Now you may be saying what about a hive block chain. What about X Y Z Block Chain
company. For the most part those are mostly just penny stocks at this point. And if you
want to take on that risk and invest in those who by all means go ahead. The reason I chose
these five is because there are five reputable companies that have shown consistent growth
that are starting to delve into the block chain technology. They’re not necessarily betting the whole
house or their whole business on it. So if you want to take on more risk take on take
a look at hive block chain and there’s a couple other ones as well. All you have to do is
a quick google search. So thank you so much for watching. If you got any value out of

Thank you so much everybody and have a prosperous day. A case where a play Pictionary here. What
is this this thing right here. OK. Now let me draw something else to her. We get into
words here. OK. Can’t say anything because it’s Pictionary. OK. That’ll be the question of the day. Let’s
see if you can guess. What I’m trying to draw here.

  1. This is a great video and very informative! No one on YouTube goes into as much detail into the stocks as you do

  2. Block Chain. Great video Marco, you are without a doubt the most intelligent financial channel on YouTube! Your going to be big soon I'm sure of it! Thank you!

  3. Just add blockchain after the name of your stock and watch it grow ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the video Marco. Love your stock review videos. Think i'll be checking broad-ridge.

  4. I don't understand the value proposition of Coco if it's a closed community. For closed communities, I would go for a regular centralized DB and App.

  5. Great job on the growth and great info. Found you because of Ryanโ€™s video. Wish I had that momentum ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Some great ideas. I like HIVE Technologies, AMD, NVDA and CME as well. Hive is mining on an industrial scale and should benefit from lower costs as well as ride the currencies higher.

    AMD and NVDA have both done well on chip demand but have other things going for them besides blockchain so investors don't have to worry quite as much on the downside. Chip demand could surge over next couple of years, a golden era of AI and virtual computing, as computing power requirements surge.

    CME is my safety trade here, benefiting from futures demand for Bitcoin but also with a huge business as one of the world's largest exchanges. Good cash return as well as less risk due to its transactional business model.

  7. Ah Blockchain! Youโ€™re creative! Great advice, I like Cisco and Microsoft ones a lot. I had no clue they are working on blockchain solutions. Iโ€™ll have to do my due diligence. Thanks!

  8. Marco! Love this channel and how you present the information. I'll be taking a deeper look at all of these. Thanks and where did you get the information you were reading in the screenshots?

Currently using robinhood and vanguard.

  10. How or where can I look at how to invest in blockchain stocks? Is there a good tutorial to show me how. Not sure. I was looking to invest possibly in crypto but I feel like this block chain thing is going to revolutionize the globe. Am I wrong?
