I have a passion for business and investing and use a combination of fundamental analysis, common business sense, and real world experience to pick stocks. I follow the investment advice of Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, and others. I primarily work in the financial field and have over 20 years (part-time) of stock picking experience, starting in 1997. Careerwise, my goal is to become a fund manager.

Bitcoin: Outperform (Moderate Buy) @ $6,100

March 21, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC-USD) and Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC)

Bitcoin is an independent cryptocurrency that allows you to transfer value, person-to-person, without the use of any central bank or government. Bitcoin is seen as a digital store-of-value and considered as an alternative to gold. I see wider Bitcoin use and future acceptance as a regulated worldwide digital commodity. The outlook for Bitcoin is positive and the current price of $6,100 reflects a buying opportunity for long-term holders. The price of Bitcoin may drop in the short-term, but will strongly rise in the long-term.

Bitcoin is available via Coinbase.
Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) holds Bitcoin and is available via traditional brokerage accounts.
