Trends coming in 2014.

This is the third year in a row that I’ve asked friends and colleagues of mine to make predictions for the coming year.In the past, when I’ve done these predictions, I’ve turned to mostly traders who follow public stocks.  The predictions have been about the best long ideas, the best short ideas, and the estimated return of the S&P 500 in the coming year.

Rather than continue with that format, I decided to change it this year.

Instead of market predictions, I asked people for their best “sleeper ideas” for 2014.  A sleeper idea is something that few people see coming.  It’s a little followed idea that suddenly goes mainstream.
