Robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, or any other type of disruptive technology is slated to the next wave of innovation. For investors who missed out on the serendipitous run of FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google) stocks, they can look to capitalize on disruptive tech options in 2019.
