Identifying and staying in front of market trends and emerging sectors has always been a challenge for everyone from “big money” to the retail investor. Two of the most bullish market segments in the last couple years have been cryptocurrency and telehealth, both with tailwinds that were fanned by the pandemic to accelerate consumer adoption and magnified market awareness. Institutional money has been pouring into each, further adding to the momentum and validating investment theses. It’s difficult to get exposure to both from a single company, but diversification is the mantra of ISW Holdings Inc. (OTC: ISWH) (Profile), which has been actively growing its portfolio in both cryptocurrency and healthcare, which complements its logistics and supply chain management division. There are only a select few public companies that offer such diverse opportunity under one umbrella. CleanSpark Inc. (NASDAQ: CLSK) operates in software and technology in addition to its Bitcoin mining fleet. Others have diversified outside crypto such as Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA), HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd (OTCQX: HVBTF) and Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN).
