This particular Angel Publishing teaser is out of this world! We’re not exaggerating when we say that we are going “spatial” for a chance to pocket a 100x return on our money. At least according to Dave Roberts and Christian Dehaemer, who say that we are going to get a chance to get rich and they are talking “I bought Apple in 1980 kind of rich”. How you ask?
Thanks to a world-changing technology of course, that 99% of investors are also apparently not yet aware of yet, YOU have an opportunity to “become a millionaire from just one stock”. The video says it is going to “pull back the curtain on the next generation of quantum computing” and one “spatial computing company” that “will shock us”. Let’s see if it can live up to the galactic hype, I’m sorry I couldn’t resist.
Our narrator Dave Roberts starts by admitting that the “claims made thus far are pretty unbelievable”, but if we bear with him, Bull and Bust Report analyst Christian DeHaemer will show why we are on the verge of a massive revolution in quantum computing, “one with the power to change the way we all live, work, and play”, just as Apple did decades ago.
Angel Publishing is an investment research boutique, providing ideas and strategies on finance, markets, human nature, and obscure financial trends. The Baltimore, Maryland based firm offers several different, subscription-based investment newsletters, which are compiled by in-house analysts such as Christian DeHaemer, who has been active since 1996, showing readers the fastest, safest ways to make money and grow their retirement savings.
Chris promises to walk us through the technology step-by-step, so that “we can see what he sees” and learn why this technology is already being deployed worldwide at businesses such as Amazon, Facebook, and even John Hopkins University. He assures us that this is not some tweak to already existing technology or a gimmicky gadget, but a real “tech revolution”. The best part is, “you don’t even have to understand the intricacies of how it works, in order to get rich from it”. That is a little less reassuring, but let’s see where it goes.
We are next told that we are seeing the “birth of an entirely new industry” and if we invest in it right now, we can reap profits of more than 100x on our money or $1 million for every $10,000 invested. To say that we have heard similar claims from Angel Publishing and Chris DeHaemer before would not be a stretch.

The Sales Pitch
As we know, such opportunities don’t come around too often and that is why we must pay for the privilege when they do abound or so we are told. In any case, the pitch here is for The Bubble & Bust Report investment newsletter, which was created and is edited by none other than Chris DeHaemer and is published by Dave Roberts.
A one year subscription to the Bull and Bust Report costs $99 and it comes with a six-month money-back guarantee, in addition to certain other benefits such as, members-only insights, email alerts, and detailed data on all recommendations, among other perks.
Is This “Spatial Computing” Opportunity Legit?
Before we can answer that, we must first get a better understanding of what just what is meant by “spatial computing”. Host Dave Roberts tells us that “it will change the way you interact with everything in the world around you”, before revealing that he is talking about Augmented Reality (AR).
He also calls this one of the biggest, most lucrative tech discoveries yet, before letting us know that current Apple CEO Tim Cook is apparently also a big fan of the technology, with Apple already having invested over $1 billion into it. However, if (and this is a big if) it ends up amassing over $350 billion in new revenue over the coming years, as Roberts mentions it may just turn out to be worthwhile after all. Here is what makes him so confident:
- AR technology is going to assist surgeons, before they ever pick up knife by guiding them through and around vital arteries
- Oil & Gas companies are using it to plan massive new off-shore oil rigs, potentially saving millions in pre-construction site checks and planning
- Car manufacturers are even using it to speed up design times and test-drive vehicles before they are even built
These are just a few of the many potential uses of AR tech. In short, is the technology legitimate? Yes. Augmented Reality (AR) tech is basically an interactive replica of a real-world environment, where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. It has been popularized by its use in video games, but as can be seen, it also has many industrial and business-to-business uses. It was originally invented in 1968 by a fellow named Ivan Sutherland who built this awkward looking contraption that went on your head:
AR headsets and the technology underpinning them have no doubt come a log way since then, but can it produce the kind of “life changing” wealth that this teaser is proclaiming? Well, that all depends on the “spatial computing” businesses you opt to invest into. Lets find out which publicly traded stocks are actually being pitched here.
Revealing The Spatial Computing Companies
Dave Roberts tells us that Chris DeHaemer has identified three specific “spatial computing/augmented reality” companies and that he is going to walk us through “each of them and give us all the details we need in order to profit from them”.
- The first company being teased we are told, relies on your mobile phone being able to map the physical world around us. In other words, it “has invented a unique ‘radar’ sensor that allows your phone to map the world around you”. Next, we are told that this company is valued at less than $6 billion today, but that it could easily hit $60 billion as mobile spatial computing as a whole takes off.
- For the second “spatial computing” stock play, we find out that Chris has “pinpointed one tiny software company that designs spatial shopping apps for some of the world’s largest retailers” and that its stock is set to explode once more retailers embrace AR tech and “go spatial”. This stock apparently went public back in 2016 and trades for around $600 per share currently.
- Finally, Chris has also “identified one company that has invented a brand-new spatial computer, specifically designed for first responders”. This computer is lightweight, plus, it’s Wi-Fi-enabled so it can easily connect to a 5G hub or hotspot on an ambulance or fire truck. The stock of this tiny computer maker traded for less than $5 when this teaser was first released.
Given that we don’t have all that much to go on, here are our most educated guesses for what these stocks could be:
- Given the “radar sensor” focus, Chris could be talking about Coherent Inc. (NASDAQ: COHR). As it is currently valued at $6.35 billion and “provides lasers, laser-based technologies, and laser-based system solutions for a range of scientific, commercial, and industrial research applications”.
- Sadly given the lack of more specific clues, we aren’t able to venture much of a guess here, as there are plenty of AR app developers today.
- This is very likely Vuzix Corp. (NASDAQ: VUZI). The stock was (formerly) selling for around $5 late last year, before running up more than 400% over the last few months thanks to some positive developments, such as its entry into the enterprise training space with its AR-based wearable display and computing devices (tiny computers).
Are The Spatial Computing Companies Good Investment Opportunities?
Purely by traditional valuation standards, such as a discounted cash flow analysis as shown below thanks to Value Spreadsheet.
Neither Vuzix Corp. (as show above) or Coherent Inc. are buys at the present time at least. The reason for this is quite simple, as the underlying cash flow from operations of both respective businesses are presently in negative territory. This is telling, as it indicates a pair of businesses which are still some time away from scaling their operations to a point where they profitable serving the target markets which they presently serve.
This can certainly change, but you shouldn’t be expecting to make “100x your money” over the short-term, as there is no justifiable basis for these stocks pricing higher than they already are.
Quick Recap & Conclusion
- Dave Roberts and Chris DeHaemer from Angel Publishing tease us with an opportunity to turn “a mere $10,000 into $1 million” by investing in a “spatial computing” revolution.
- We then learn that “spatial computing” actually entails investing into Augmented Reality (AR) stocks, three of them to be exact.
- Of course, what seems to be too good to be true, often is, as we are told that we have to purchase a one year subscription to the Bull and Bust Report investment newsletter, which costs $99 in order to find out the names of these three stocks.
- Fortunately for loyal readers who stuck around until the end, we were able to uncover the names of two of these “spatial computing” stocks for free. They are Coherent Inc. (NASDAQ: COHR) and Vuzix Corp. (NASDAQ: VUZI).
- Neither are of “investment grade” to say the least, as they do not just lack quality of earnings, but earnings themselves, with none of the two companies reaching profitability as yet.
