Social Media And Anti-Trends: Trip Chowdhry Explains The Phenomenon, Provides Insight

Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research has argued in the past the social media boom has come to an end and should be considered an "
" for 2017 and beyond.

Chowdhry also labeled mobility, hybrid cloud and the gig economy as an "anti-trend," but the notable analyst has shied away from identifying strong trends for 2017 — until now.

In a research report Tuesday, the analyst offered his take on what some of the hottest trends will be based on the many conferences he attended and first-hand observations.

All future trends will be based on solid innovation, engineering, technology and process. The poster child of this is none other than Tesla Inc TSLA as the company combines industrial sciences, material sciences, process sciences and computer sciences in manufacturing its products.

Chowdhry also acknowledged that based on his observations at the developer level, International Business Machines Corp. IBM and Microsoft Corporation MSFT are two other companies worth following.

Specifically, the analyst sees IBM's artificial intelligence platform Watson as gaining strong traction, while Microsoft's Bot Framework's momentum is extremely strong.

Finally, Chowdhry noted he will be released new research reports on both IBM and Microsoft in the coming weeks.
