In today's video I look at fundamentals and recent news for Quantum-Si (NASDAQ:QSI) and UiPath (NYSE:PATH). ARK Investment has recently purchased these two companies that have strong growth potential as long-term investments. Below I share a few highlights from the video. 

  1. Both companies have a strong balance sheet with a substantial amount of cash and short-term investments and no debt. A strong balance sheet is essential since both companies are still in the early stages of business. 
  2. Quantum-Si is a company developing semiconductor chip-based proteomics. Products are expected to be released in 2022, and the company has recently leased a new facility to scale production and expand research and development efforts. 
  3. UiPath is a company developing software robots to automate numerous tasks for its customers. As of April 30, 2021, UiPath reported over 8,500 customers and 64% year-over-year growth in annual recurring revenue for a total of $653 million.
