Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

As part of his continuing research into megatrends that will make early investors wealthy while they disrupt businesses and change our world, Paul Mampilly has identified 3-D printing as a technology that will dramatically reduce the cost of building a new house.

In 2017, Hurricanes Maria, Harvey and Irma did enormous damage. Maria destroyed $30 billion of property across the Caribbean Ocean, including an estimated 100% of the homes in Dominica. Irma trashed 25% of all the houses in the Florida Keys. Harvey wrecked 12,700 houses. The ordinary home construction industry is just not up to repairing and rebuilding so many houses the conventional way. On an island such as Dominica, people just don’t have enough money to rebuild the old-fashioned way.

Therefore, they may all turn to the 3-D printing company Cazza. Cazza has an X-1 3-D printer that can put up houses, warehouses, villas and commercial buildings in just a week. And, Cazza estimates, the total cost will be 40% cheaper than using conventional building methods. Evidently, Cazza uses a lot less labor than regular construction crews. Paul Mampilly estimates using Cazza could save $40.8 billion for the reconstruction of just the damage caused by those hurricanes. That’s huge for the home owners, insurance companies and government agencies involved.

Eventually, Cazza or another 3-D printer company will build ordinary new houses, and they’ll save the young people building homes a lot of money. This will affect the real estate markets and banks.

Paul Mampilly is a legend on Wall Street. With his MBA from Fordham University in hand, he started out in 1991 as an analyst for Bankers Trust. Soon the professional investment community discovered his superior talent for finding terrific stocks, and he began managing money for the Royal Bank of Scotland, ING, Sears, Swiss private banks and Deutsche Bank. He saw the dramatic effect the dot com boom had on the stock market from 1995 through 1999, as well as the even more dramatic impact the Tech Wreck of 2000-2001 had on high tech stocks. He learned buying the stock of a small company while its technology is trending up is the way to massive wealth.
