These Tiny “Power Plants” Living Inside You
Dear Tech Profits Reader,
Happy New Year, folks… I hope you enjoyed your holiday.
Looking into 2019 we have some very exciting opportunities, despite the overall bearish sentiment that is confounding Wall Street.
After double topping between August and October this year, the Nasdaq Biotech Index (IBB) smashed through its support level and fell roughly 10% through December, as you can see in the chart below.
But over the last five days the IBB has started to recover, and I expect this five-day uptrend to mark the start of a significant surge. Most notably in small-cap biotechs.
You see, for many small biotech plays, it’s execution and success, not overall market trends, that make big gains for us.
Things are setting up for big success among our biotech plays in 2019.
Here is everything you need to know.
Tiny “Power Plants” Living Inside You
There’s a new company out there that’s creating therapies based on the tiny “power plants” present in each and every cell in your body: mitochondria.
Mitochondria are complex organelles — like tiny organs inside your cells. We hear all about nuclear DNA, but these tiny power plants also come complete with their own set of biological blueprints.
As we get older, our mitochondria do too… and many age-related diseases could one day be treated using mitochondrial-based therapies (MBTs). Especially if they are diseases related to metabolism like obesity and diabetes.
And that’s exactly why one small biotech has caught my eye.
Fundamental discoveries about mitochondrial biology led to the founding of this company and I think it may turn out to be one of the biggest biotech opportunities of the year.
The Market for MBTs Is Huge
Age-related diseases, from Alzheimer’s to heart disease, are among the biggest markets in health care, if not the biggest.
For example, Forbes earlier this year reported the annual cost of care for Alzheimer’s patients eclipsed $277 billion in 2018.
Heart diseases is equally costly. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates heart disease costs the U.S. roughly $200 billion annually and is responsible for one out of every four deaths here in the U.S. alone.
There’s clearly a need for better drugs. And in this need lies our opportunity.
The company’s longevity and mitochondrial work are putting it in position to eventually be able to address some of the biggest health care problems in ways modern medicine never conceived previously.
For you this means the potential to make incredible gains in the near future.

Looking for new opportunities in pot for 2019?
One of your better bets to kick off the new year looks to be in New Mexico. Marijuana Business Daily is reporting:
2019 is shaping up to be a good year for New Mexico’s medical marijuana market, with action favorable to the industry expected from judges, legislators and a newly elected pro-cannabis governor.
More on how to tap this opportunity in coming issues.
