For this month, the stock I recommend looking at is GBTC – Bitcoin Investment Trust. This company is a private, open-ended trust that is invested exclusively in bitcoin and derives its value solely from the price of bitcoin. It enables investors to gain exposure to the price movement of bitcoin without the challenge of buying, storing, and safekeeping bitcoins. The BIT’s sponsor is Grayscale Investments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Digital Currency Group. On 1/4/16, the stock was trading at $64.00, and as of today, the stock is trading at $120.00. This stock is one that is worth keeping an eye on.
