In what area of the stock market can investors experience, literally, 1,000x investment returns?

What strategies do “Da Vinci stocks” employ from inception to growth to become the true market dominators?

Why does even Warren Buffett talk about the amazing returns of these companies, lamenting how he can’t buy them despite the opportunity for 50%+ annual returns per year?

This special event for Florida Atlantic University students, alumni, and the greater FAU community will focus on how the greatest of investors and leadership teams recognize, analyze, and even build the world’s next “Da Vinci stocks.”
