2 disruptive US stocks that could turn $1,000 into $100,000 by 2030

| December 20, 2021

Disruptive stocks have the potential to elevate investors’ wealth considerably. These investment opportunities represent progression marked by rapid change in an existing market, often through technological innovation. Previously I have discussed several US stocks that could make me rich. But what about those that have the potential, in my opinion, to transform $1,000 into $100,000 by 2030.

The US stock taking the cyber security sector by storm

With the increase in digital transformation, the risk of cyber threats has increased side by side. Moreover, the surge in high-profile cyber attacks in the current year has highlighted the importance of cyber security. As per the Gartner 2021 CIO Agenda Survey, cybersecurity was the top spending niche by more than 61% of the CIOs surveyed. CrowdStrike Holdings (NASDAQ:CRWD) recognized this rapid change within the technology industry.

Many companies are seeking the services of CrowdStrike to safeguard their data and systems. The company’s Falcon Platform leverages artificial intelligence and cloud computing technology to fortify clients’ networks.

I believe the growing momentum of net new subscription customers is excellent proof of the continuous growth of the cyber security firm. CrowdStrike continued to add more than 1,500 customers for three quarters in a row, which is a record achievement. All the more reasons for me to invest in this US stock.

The company’s stock is on an upward streak since last year, and it peaked at $284.2 a couple of weeks ago. No doubt, the continuously rising price is appealing. But the US stock is far from risk-free. The rising demand for new cybersecurity solutions hasn’t gone unnoticed. CrowdStrike has a long list of competitors to contend with. And with the rapid rate of innovation within the technology sector, it’s possible that a new disruptor could enter the field and start stealing market share.

Big data is the new best thing

The growth of data is ever increasing. More and more of it is being created every day in various forms, including videos, information, and records. But the sheer quantity is making a bit of a problem regarding how to understand and use it effectively. That’s where big data analytics tools come in, as they can better strategic decisions and business initiatives. That’s why the global big data technology market size is expected to reach $116bn by 2027, according to Fortune Insights.

Palantir Technologies (NYSE:PLTR) is an analytics firm that helps government agencies and private organisations build a central operating system for their data. Big companies like JP Morgan and Ferrari use Palantir’s flagship software platform, Gotham. The list of customers also includes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) along with the Immigration & Customs Enforcement agency. What’s more, Palantir is rumoured to have helped government agencies track down Osama Bin Laden through its data analytical tool.

What makes this US stock more desirable as a potential addition to my portfolio is the group’s approach towards cultivating long-term growth. The investments in small-term companies are earning future revenue commitments from these businesses. Moreover, the financial improvement journey from negative to positive cash flow further strengthens Palantir’s long-term worthiness for investment. At least, that’s what I think.

Having said all that, I do have some reservations. The company’s stock price surged after reporting higher than expected revenue in the second quarter of 2021. But despite the expanding top line, the data analytics firm has been struggling to become profitable since its inception. But even if it can get itself into the black, the firm is always going to be exposed to cybersecurity threats. After all, the platform analyses sensitive data used by governments.

Nevertheless, the explosive growth in big data combined with the company’s improving cash position makes this US stock worth buying in my mind.
