But as I said last week in my essay that got over 3.5 million views, the days of companies like Netflix are numbered.

In this article, I’ll explain why you have to dump these big darling companies… and how to spot stocks that are likely to become the next Amazon.

It All Comes Down to Three Little Lists

Please look at the following three lists over carefully. Heck, print them out and keep them at your desk. They’re that important.

Together they hold the key to getting rich through investing in disruption.

This first list shows the 10 largest public companies on earth—ranked by market cap—in early 2001:

You probably recognize most of these stocks.

In 2001, they were the best of the best. The biggest of the big. They were household names that had reigned over their industries and handed investors big profits.

Now I’m going to add a second column.

It will show the same rankings a decade later—in early 2011.

You see what happened?

Seven of the top 10 stocks were displaced, inflicting big losses on many investors who were unfortunate enough to own them.

For example, from 2001–2018, GE stock plunged 79%, Citi collapsed 89%, and Vodafone fell 56%.

Only Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell, and Microsoft survived. But even these three “survivors” posted terrible returns.

Microsoft fell 15% between 2001 and 2011. Exxon and Shell underperformed the broad market.

Losing 11% of your money over 17 years when the market doubles is a financial disaster.

Now let’s add one more column for late 2018:

As you can see, this time only 2 of the 10 survived. And once again… the stocks of many of the losers tanked.
