  • Become A Millionaire For Free!

    From the beginning, PTT Research decided that we wanted to create a business that would essentially give our customers the money to pay for our services before they sign up.

    This started with four years of free service via Seeking Alpha. I wanted to give investors a chance to get comfortable with me and my picks. The world is full of scam artists and I wanted to show everyone that I wasn't one of them. My Wall Street customers (including Jim Cramer's Cramer & Co.) already knew it, but Main Street investors like you did not.

    During those four years of free service, I picked numerous stocks that tripled in value. Then, starting with Pixelworks (PXLW) in May of 2013, we started to sign readers up to our free blog at PoisedToTriple.com. Finally, after putting literally billions of dollars in the hands of 50,000+ readers, we launched our pay services via PTT Research.

    Hundreds signed up immediately. Our five year investment was paying off.

    But we were just getting started. Our first pick for paying members was Glu Mobile (GLUU). It was an instant winner. Customers were sitting on big profits before we finally released it to the public... and then the public made big profits too!

    As I write this, GLUU is up 74% in just 9 months.

    Going forward, we will continue with this free / premium (a.k.a. freemium) model. Subscribers of our PTT Newsletter now receive my picks to triple months before we release them to the public. They also receive my exclusive weekly research updates and educational investment commentary.

    This provides the ongoing information and psychological reinforcement needed to maximize their profits on our picks. Our goal is to enable our free readers to double their money every three years, but for our paying members to triple their money in the same timeframe.

    If we succeed, everyone becomes a millionaire!

    But observe the chart below. In it, we show the results for readers of our free research who achieve our goal for them versus paying members who achieve our goal for them:

    For demonstration purposes only. This is not a guarantee to obtain the results displayed. Pre-tax results displayed.

    The numbers speak for themselves. At the end of this example, the readers of our free research has turned $10,000 into $1,000,000. Their annual profits are over $200,000. That's fantastic (!)... but our paying PTT members are multi-millionaires with nearly $8 million, with profits growing at more than $2,000,000 per year!

    Even though this is just an example, I can tell you that "Investor #2" closely resembles what has happened to me since 1996.

    In other words, this is real... and it can happen for you.

    Of course, taxes might eat into your profits depending on where you live and what kind of account you have. I pack as much profits as possible into a ROTH IRA account, which incurs zero taxes! Oh, and by the way, PTT subscriptions are tax-deductible, too :)

    Regardless of taxes, as you start to make money, you will want to deposit more of your paycheck into your stock account(s) to accelerate your path to making millions. Overall, you might find (as I have) that taxes and savings offset one another, making the numbers above very attainable.

    So, are you Investor #1 or Investor #2?

    The choice is yours. Visit PTT Research today and decide if signing up is right for you.

    Of course, our readers profited greatly. Investors who panicked out these stocks in May took heavy losses. The difference between the winners and losers was very simple -- our readers stuck with us and trusted in our Methodology. They were given the research and encouragement to buy into the panic, while most investors were running for cover.

    I know the feeling... I used to be one of them.

    Thankfully, with the help of some real Wall Street mentors, along with the publicly-available lessons of Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham (Buffett's mentor), and Peter Lynch (arguably the most famous mutual fund manager of all-time), I was able to transform my investment results (and my life). Now, I want the same for everyone who started with nothing.

    It's not genius. It's just education (the right education, which most of us never even get offered). Using that education and the PTT budget (funded by subscriber revenues), I hire the best industry experts that money can buy.

    Industry experts don't know how to pick stocks and I don't have their industry expertise. But together, they provide me with the information and insight needed to pick stocks like the legends do. Then, we share our lessons, guidance, and stock picks with investors like you.

    Leave the scams and losses behind. Join us today.

  • Barron's Talks About Pixelworks... And Monkeys

    After the market closed on Friday, I noticed that PXLW was featured in Barron's.

    Barron's also featured a piece about monkeys picking stocks better than "professional" managers.

    It sounds outlandish, but there are several reasons why:

    1. Most fund managers are trying to manage too much money with too few resources. This leads to mediocre stock-picking discipline.

    2. They lean on Wall Street research too much. Benjamin Graham explained why Wall Street research is no better than throwing darts. See our Methodology for Ben on video talking about this.

    3. The easiest way to not lose clients is to not take chances. So, most of America's money is managed in a way that is meant to simply match the stock market's returns. They take the safe money instead of doing what they were trained to do (mainly because Main Street investors scurry at the first sign of losses, even if the long-term track record shows big consistent gains).

    4. Add in the other duties the portfolio managers need to perform (regulatory, accounting, marketing, sales, etc) and it's easy to understand how monkeys could do just as well.

    Yet another reason why I started PTT Research.

    Take the power back into your own hands.

    Disclosure: The author is long PXLW.
