I’m always looking for an edge… a way to bring life-changing gains to the doorsteps of average investors.
That’s why I’ve spent so much time with my “boots on the ground” research. My personal network spans the globe, and my industry contacts range over just about any high-tech sector we can think of.
And I’m always in learning mode…
Heading Back to the Classroom
In 2019, I celebrated turning 50 by going back to school. I was admitted into Yale University’s School of Management for postgraduate business studies for a 10-month program. I graduated last October. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Here I am on graduation day with Handsome Dan, the university mascot:
I regularly attend the best universities in the world for continuing education and professional certificates. It keeps me on my toes and ensures that my network continues to grow. And I’m always generating new ideas.
Back in February, I attended an invite-only weeklong class at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law and earned a professional certificate – Go Bears!
It was a great week. We dug deep into early-stage investing and many of the nuances, both business and legal, that affect these kinds of investments.
Now, I’m not telling you all this to “brag.” It’s true that I find these studies very rewarding. But I also do it to benefit my subscribers.
Being on “the inside” of conversations around high-technology and early-stage investing allows me to pass on insights to my readers. These are topics that 99% of investors would never have the chance to learn on their own.
And during my travels, I uncovered something important…
Venture Capital-Like Returns for Everyday Investors
I’ve been on a personal campaign to find a way to empower nonaccredited investors to gain access to the highest-reward asset class in the world… early-stage technology companies.
It is unfair that our government and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are okay with nonaccredited investors literally gambling away their money (something that has a nearly 100% certainty to lose money over time). But they don’t allow investors to make educated investments into private technology companies (which is the best asset class for extraordinary returns).
And I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Just this August, SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce spoke out about these rules.
And I love what Peirce had to say: “Why shouldn’t mom and pop retail investors be allowed to invest in private offerings? Why should I, as a regulator, decide what other Americans do with their money?”
She went further, saying, “A person’s economic status may demonstrate an ability to withstand losses, but it certainly does not demonstrate financial sophistication.”
She’s absolutely right. It’s not fair…
A Different Route to Early-Stage Gains
While the Jobs Act of 2012 was meant to help, it did almost nothing to address this problem. Regulation Crowdfunding deals (Reg CF) and Regulation A or A+ deals are now possible. These types of raises allow investments from nonaccredited investors. But they’re far from perfect.
Fees, restrictions on the amount these companies can raise, and some pretty extensive regulatory filings and disclosures make Regulation A deals a difficult path for most early-stage companies.
Of course, there are exceptions. Some great companies are pursuing Regulation A and Reg CF routes. But there are still far too few opportunities for nonaccredited investors to take part in exciting early-stage investments.
And that’s why I looked for a different route to gain access to early-stage companies…
In fact, I spent over five years developing a system that could pinpoint early-stage technology stocks with incredible potential… a small number of IPOs that can greatly outperform the rest.
And I found these companies in a small sector of the tech market. They’re what I’ve been calling “Penny IPOs” because, unlike hyped public offerings like Uber – which went public at a valuation of over $74 billion after almost a decade of being private – these early-stage tech stocks go public while they’re still tiny… while they have their biggest growth ahead of them.
To find these Penny IPOs, my team and I sorted through hundreds of thousands of stocks to filter out the chaff… analyzed thousands of hours of market data… backtested each and every company with potential… and pinpointed what made these tiny tech stocks different from all the rest.
And what we found is impressive. Almost like clockwork, these stocks spike after experiencing specific triggers.
In fact, these Penny IPO stocks can soar up to hundreds (sometimes even thousands) of percent in days or even hours. One subscriber wrote in to tell me he’d “banked a profit of $74,300 before breakfast” on one of these tiny, early-stage companies.
But the crazy thing is, 99% of investors have never heard about these stocks. Because they’re so small, they don’t often show up in the headlines on news websites or achieve the “hype” other popular stocks drum up.
But because they’re public, any retail investor with a brokerage account can invest in them. They’re not restricted to accredited investors. There’s no gatekeeper preventing investors from profiting from these companies.
And that’s why I’m so excited to share this opportunity with all my readers… especially with the “4X Window” just around the corner. That’s a special time when these Penny IPOs are going to get turbocharged…
This past Wednesday, I hosted a free presentation for all investors to learn about this exciting moment. If you’d like to find out more about what these Penny IPOs are… when exactly the “4X Window” will hit… and how to add these explosive stocks to your portfolio… go right here to watch the replay.
