Mark Cuban told CNBC on Monday that while he's not more bullish on stocks overall, he's extremely optimistic about the future of technology.
"I think we're going to go through the biggest technological revolution we've ever seen over the next 10 years," Cuban told CNBC's "Squawk Box " on Monday.
Mark Cuban is an entrepreneur, Dallas Mavericks owner and judge on the show, "Shark Tank," and has tweeted extensively about the possibilities of tech-savvy infrastructure in America. Cuban said that Netflix is one of the best investments for the coming revolution, even if Cuban doesn't always agree with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings.
Hastings has been outspoken on several hot-button issues being targeted by the new administration, including immigration and net neutrality.
"You want the CEO that is going to do what's right for his company and his shareholders," Cuban said.
Donald Trump's administration has instituted a travel ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — and temporarily halted the entry of refugees.
"Trump's actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all," Hastings said on Facebook.
Cuban said he would prefer for companies that he invested in to be outspoken about the policy. For instance, any company hoping to hire an talented engineer working on artificial intelligence now has to consider the logistical challenges of their immigration and travel plans, Cuban said.
"That type of uncertainty is not good for anybody, " Cuban said.
Trump's FCC pick, Ajit Pai, has told CNBC that he opposes net neutrality policies that reclassify broadband as a public utility.
In the company's most recent earnings, Netflix said, "we hope the new U.S. administration and Congress will recognize that keeping the network neutral drives job growth and innovation."
Cuban — who as founder of dotcom-era company Broadcast.com, is not stranger to online content creation — said he's long been against net neutrality.
