Finally, we close with brief comments Country Road, The Great Frontier, and Getting Personal. First, According to industry data, RV sales continue to skyrocket. With hotels remaining a difficult option and quarantines galore, Americans have resorted to the RV as a mobile hotel. In October, industry shipments rose 21%, the latest month for which statistics are available. With Americans taking to the road in droves with their RVs, we see the call of the great Country Road. Second, new technology continues to drive into the Space Industry. Relativity Space applied 3D manufacturing to build rockets for the major satellite and defense companies. They can fabricate a whole rocket in just 60 days using their 3D printing technology. As a side benefit, this reduces the number of parts 100x. With technology continuing to forge ahead, The Great Frontier beckons closer and closer. And Third, Gilead Sciences recently announced results for their Phase 2 trial of Yescarta. Yescarta is their leading CAR-T therapy for cancer. CAR-T stands for Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell. In this therapy, a person’s T Cells are primed to lock onto the cancer in their body.
