    Hi All,

    Today, I thought I'd share a sample of our free weekly newsletter, the PTT Insider (courtesy of PTT Research). To subscribe, just visit the PoisedToTriple website.

    In the meantime, enjoy this sample!

    THE PTT INSIDER

    Welcome to this week's PTT Insider. Today we'll give you a play-by-play look at how a million-dollar portfolio would do this year, using my proprietary investment Methodology. We also have some good Q&A on Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU).

    FYI, we provided this research to our PTT Newsletter subscribers on December 12. To find out if you should join them, check out my video at PTTResearch.com!

    OK, enough talk. Let's dive right in…

    12 EASY MOVES TO DOUBLE YOUR MONEY IN 12 MONTHS

    There are two things that I notice about some of my readers. 1) Many of you are trying TOO HARD to make a lot of money, and 2) related to #1, many of you "freak out" when one of my picks drops a lot in a short span of time.

    I think this article will appeal to everyone, but if what I just said describes you, this article is especially for you…and I can sum it up in 10 words: My picks are meant to make life easy for you.

    If you look at my track record, you will see that I'm pretty good at picking big winners. Of course, I'm sometimes wrong, but the winners crush the losers. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing which picks will lose. If I did, I'd never be wrong! As it is, all we can do is let each pick play out and take our lumps along with our rewards…our big big rewards.

    Allow me to repeat myself -- My picks are meant to make life easy for you.

    Most people don't grow their own food or do their own oil changes. Why? Quite simply, there are experts that can do virtually anything for us -- cheaply and easily. Investing is no different.

    Please take no offense to what you're about to read. I'm only going to say it to help you become rich.

    Most of you didn't go to college to become stock market experts. Even fewer did the kind of post-graduate work required to truly become good at it. Despite this, most of you are trying to analyze stocks on your own. Many of you work very hard to analyze stocks. But most of you don't have the skills to consistently beat the stock market's returns (at least not by enough to make it worth the time you spend!).

    Because of this, you could make life easier for yourselves by simply investing in a mutual fund and spending your time on something more enjoyable!

    If this sounds familiar, don't feel ashamed. You are one of millions that fit this description. At one point, I did too. In fact, even after I had a college degree, I had no idea what I was doing. It took several more years of study, practice, experience, and mentorship to become truly good at this.

    Luckily, there is a happy medium. By "hiring" me, you have effectively outsourced your stock analysis. THAT is a SMART MOVE (not hiring me specifically, but hiring someone …I'm honored that it happens to be me). I'm your farmer. I'm your oil change guy. All you have to do is go to the grocery store or drop the car off at the shop. I do the rest.

    With my picks (and lessons on how to play them), your job becomes much easier. In fact, by following my picks and lessons this year, you should have conservatively doubled your money this year. Best of all, you only needed to make 12 moves to pull it off. That's right, JUST TWELVE.

    Check it out…

    Here are the results of a hypothetical portfolio, starting with $1M at the beginning of 2013. You'll notice that it starts with several of my picks that had already gone up a lot (STX, LGF, ATTU, and FB), but gives no credit to their past gains. This portfolio starts fresh on January 1. The 12 moves that made this portfolio are listed below.

    1,041,775.15

    1) January 1 -- Open the year with 15% positions ($150,000) in STX, LGF, ATTU, LTRX, and FB (with 4 of the 5 already performing very well!). The remaining 20% sits in SPY for the time being. I use three transactions to represent the SPY purchase ($150K, $50K, and $50K) because it'll make it easier when I decide to sell them off to purchase another core position (likely $150K) or Speculative position (likely $50K).

    2) March 4 -- Sell the $150,000 investment in SPY for $156,874.10 to make room for HIMX. Buy $150,000 HIMX and leave the remaining $6,874.10 in cash.

    3) May 14 -- LTRX's fundamentals aren't coming around as I envisioned. Let's cut our losses by selling the $150,000 investment in LTRX for $128,030.30; invest this + the $6,874.10 of cash ($134,904.40) into SPY. Let's record this as two separate investments ($100,000 + $34,904.40). We'll likely sell the smaller block later for a new Speculative investment (or both blocks for a Core investment).

    4) June 3 -- Sell the $50,000 investment in SPY (from Jan 1) for $56,689.41 (SPY price is adjusted for the .694 dividend paid on 3/15 -- all SPY sales will be treated this way) and make two $25,000 investments in PXLW. The reason for only $25,000 is that it is a Speculative pick. The reason for making two $25,000 investments is that it is currently our only Speculative investment, so we can afford to take a bigger chance. If we find more Speculative picks, we'll sell some of the PXLW to make sure we don't expose more than 10-20% of our portfolio to higher-risk names. We leave the remaining $6,689.41 in cash.

    5) July 11 -- TPCS is a "Ten Bagger or Bust". This is the most enticing, but also the riskiest type of investment. Let's only invest $25,000 by selling our final $50,000 investment in SPY from Jan 1 (for $56,267.65). $25K goes to TPCS, leaving the remaining $31,267.65 in cash.

    6) Aug 26 -- GSAT is poised to triple! Use our cash to buy $37,957.06 of GSAT at 67-cents. We only invest $37,957.06 because it is speculative. We can buy more at a later date. Nearly 10% of our portfolio is now in Speculative stocks.

    7) Sep 5 -- LGF TRIPLES!! Everyone now knows and loves this stock, so it's time to sell. We get $326,929.98 (a $176,929.98 profit!). Our $1M portfolio is well on its way to doubling, so we can have up to $200,000 in Speculative stocks. So, let's buy $26,929.98 more GSAT and put the rest in SPY.

    8) Sep 20 -- HIMX TRIPLES!! Everyone now knows and loves this stock, so it's time to sell. We net a $300,000 profit on a $150,000 investment! Let's put this $450,000 in SPY for now (in two blocks -- $250,000 and $200,000).

    9) Oct 1 -- ATTU TRIPLES!! This stock hasn't matured yet, but it's near the top of our risk/reward chart, so it's time to sell (for now). We get $189,958.16, which we invest in SPY.

    10) Oct 18 -- FB TRIPLES!! Everyone HATED this stock when we picked it...now everyone loves it. Time to sell! We get $296,173.47, which we invest in SPY.

    11) Oct 24 -- GLUU is poised to triple! We have nearly doubled our money, so we should start doubling our initial investments. Let's sell the SPY we bought on Sept 5 for $317,922.22 and put it in GLUU.

    12) Nov 21 -- Last night, ATTU plummeted in post-market trading after announcing a secondary offering of $20 million (which was done at $7 per share). Our technical guru, Zev Spiro warned investors to sell ATTU at $9…and I told investors to pile back in on Nov 21. We do this by selling the $250,000 block of SPY we bought on Sept 20 for $262,389.02 and putting it back into ATTU.

    There was one more move to be made this year, but the 12th one put our portfolio over 100% for the year. With that said, let's finish what we started:

    13) Nov 27 -- STOCK MARKET YELLOW ALERT!! The stock market looks expensive. A lot of our picks have tripled and we've almost doubled our money this year!! Let's trim our excessive Speculative positions. In this case, we only need to trim the first investment we made in GSAT, bringing us down to a more reasonable investment size. PXLW has become less speculative in recent months, but hasn't gone up a lot, so we'll keep that entire position. That gets our Speculative plays back down to 10%.

    Let's also sell all of our holdings in SPY. That leaves us with about $1M in stocks and $1M in cash. That's right...we started the year with $1M in stocks and now have about $1M in stocks AND $1M in cash. We have doubled our money!!!

    * * * * * * *

    So there you have it. You only needed twelve moves to double your money this year. Of course, by taking more risks or doing more effective trading, you could have made a lot more than 100%. However, when dealing with a multi-million dollar portfolio, I prefer to be more conservative. I also prefer to spend more time on the beach. With my method, you didn't need to think too much or fret over every up/down move in our picks. By employing a professional analyst and a solid methodology to get the job done, you didn't have to do much work at all -- just 12 easy moves.

    In fact, even I outsource some of my investing. One of my mentors, John Cassarini, owns and runs JAC Capital, an investment fund. I've invested a big chunk of my cash in the fund. The money is doing great, which comes as no surprise -- after all, John taught me much of what I know about investing!

    In closing, as I write this (Dec 11), this portfolio is now worth $2M+, double what it was worth on Jan 1. I continue to seek new triples…and remain worried that the market is at precariously high levels. We have some potential winners lined up, which I am currently investigating. In the meantime, it's almost year-end, which means that our annual Spring Portfolio picks will be coming out soon!

    Last year, our main Spring Portfolio returned 41% in less than 3 months. Our secondary Spring Portfolio reeled in 9% in less than a week! If we included those investments, I estimate that our mock portfolio would likely be worth $100,000 more.

    The Moral of the Story - There's no need to overthink things. Stocks go up and down every day, but over time, good picks go up (and great picks go up a lot). Don't work too hard. JUST FOLLOW THE RULES AND KEEP IT SIMPLE!

    I'm looking forward to sharing our new Spring Portfolio picks with you (along with new picks to triple).

    Stay tuned :^)

    MEMBER Q&A

    For our paying subscribers, we provide the opportunity to ask questions. I answer most of them every week in the PTT Newsletter. To give you an idea of what our subscribers get, I thought I'd share one of the questions I received a few weeks ago…just to give you a feel for another one of the many extra services our paying subscribers receive. Enjoy.

    Q. Hi Mark, I read the December 10th GLUU Wedbush Securities Dreamin' Consumer Conference Transcript many times over and I could not come off with anything other than an extremely positive outlook and I also noticed how snugly each of your points (analysis) on GLUU fits with everything Mr. Ludwig said at the conference. I especially liked some of his points related to the specific numbers on the downloads, time spent, ads, etc. My questions:

    1. Did you also conceive everything said at the conference as extremely bullish for GLUU in the coming months? If yes, was it better than what you expected, on par or not as good as you expected?

    2. The only slight not-so-positive (I think) point Mr. Ludwig made about was being mindful of the 2014 outlook provided, which actually is not too much at all considering all the aspects. Am I reading too much into the way it was said OR is it something to take caution of?

    3. What are the near-term catalysts that you see for GLUU?

    4. The short interest keeps rising and is over 16 million now. Boy, I hope you are right on GLUU (for both your sake as well as mine). The way this is winding up with all the positive aspects and the ill-advised (hopefully) shorts, GLUU might very well turn out to be one of your biggest winners yet. Do you agree?

    What a gift it will be for your PTT Research subscribers as your first pick for them instilling more strongly the confidence and trust you have earned from all of us. Thank you and Best Regards.

    A. First of all, I applaud you for reading the conference notes. That's exactly the type of homework that instills confidence in one's investments.

    Beyond that, despite your many questions, there really isn't much to say. I made this pick a few weeks ago and nothing has changed in my eyes. That being said, here are your answers:

    1) The conference was indeed bullish, but not much more or less so than I already perceived and discussed a few weeks ago

    2) As I discussed a few weeks ago, management guides conservatively, so this is not bearish - it's normal

    3) We're looking for this stock to triple, so I don't worry about near-term catalysts…but obviously, the answer is more games. Deer Hunter keeps dishing out new levels, new locations, and new things to shoot (i.e. zombie animals!). Robocop will come out a month early (in January) and GLUU excels at shoot-em-up games. It could be another big hit. Looking further down the line, Apple's deal with China Mobile can only extend GLUU's reach into the Chinese market. Finally, King (makers of the mega-hit, Candy Crush) is expected to go public next year. In the meantime, the stock seems to be in the latter stages of a cup-and-handle formation. If so, that's one of the most explosive formations. Breaking out of that would almost assuredly send the stock back over $4 in short order.

    4) If I knew which picks would succeed and fail, I'd always be right. I like GLUU a lot, but history has proven that to be meaningless. Just like all of my other picks, I think GLUU will triple. Based on my track record it has a great chance of doing so.

    Cheers!

    Author’s reply » Well, of course I'm biased, but I'm also an honest person. For someone with $50,000 I can humbly say that my service is a no brainer. The market returned 30% last year. Using a conservative method, my picks returned 100%. On $50,000 that's the difference between making $15,000 and making $50,000...a $35,000 difference. That's almost 10x more than the cost of our Lifetime offering in one year :^)

    Mark. I'm tempted to subscribe to your PTT research. The pricing structure is clearly designed to tempt you to take the annual or lifetime subscription. Have you thought about making your historic subscription content freely available? Maybe content 2 or 3 years ago so there is no investment value? I don't really have any way of knowing what I might actually get if I subscribe so it is kind of a leap of faith.

    Author’s reply » Already done. Most of our PTT content *eventually* gets published on PoisedToTriple.com.

     

    Also, smart observation on our pricing structure. It's designed to attract real investors. We want our subscribers to triple their money in a handful of quarters, not 5% in a handful of hours ;^)

    Mark, your perspective is great. Your staff/research team should be congratulated. Since you are dependent on S.A. to display (at least initially) yourself to the public, where do you stand on S.A. Pro versus just plain S.A. Seems they plan to shut out the small investor with the Pro subscription service.

    Author’s reply » SA is a great company. Our goals are aligned with theirs. In fact, PTT Research has two nationally-recognized digital-marketing gurus in house, so we don't technically "need" SA. However, we have a great and synergistic relationship, so it's a win-win.

    Heck even LTRX spiked at the end of November and can be a reload if you can get it below $1.50.

    Hello Mark,

     

    Thanks for detailing this hypothetical portfolio. I noticed that this portfolio is not in line with your recommended methodology as detailed at http://bit.ly/14oT7sj

     

    In your outlined methodology you recommend:
    "...my aim is to hold 10 or 20 “core” (non-speculative) stocks, representing a total of 90% of my portfolio. ... I also like to hold 10 or 20 speculative stocks, totaling 10% of my portfolio. This provides good diversification, allowing me to benefit from the winners, while being protected from the occasional, but unavoidable losers."

     

    You also say:
    "As a rule of thumb, 10% allocation implies that one’s investment in a speculative stock should be 10% (1/10th) of what one would put into a non-speculative one."

     

    This is clearly not what you have demonstrated in the above hypothetical portfolio. Can you please elaborate on if you recommend that you readers build a portfolio based on your picks using an allocation similar to the hypothetical or the methodology described on PTT which recommends a much larger basket of holdings and more conservative allocations to speculative picks. Also, how would you design a portfolio allocation differently for a 1M portfolio vs a 100k portfolio?

     

    Thank you,

    Author’s reply » Step,

     

    Two key things:

     

    1) I don't expect investors to build their entire portfolio around my selections. My research methodology only enables me to find a handful of picks per year. Thus, I round out my portfolio by utilizing other analysts for whom I have great respect. In fact, we'll be introducing them to PTT followers in the coming months.

     

    2) "Rule of thumb" is the operative phrase regarding Speculative picks. Less-experienced investors are prone to overinvesting in riskier propositions (I've heard from many who placed as much as 100% of their $$ in a single speculative pick), so I put that rule of thumb in place to accentuate the importance of prudent allocation.

     

    I see no difference in a 100K portfolio and a 1M portfolio. The larger one is only more difficult in that smaller, less-liquid names become harder to buy in the desired quantity.

     

    Cheers

    In the disclosure you said: " I am long ATTU, GLUU, GSAT, HIMX, PXLW, TPCS." But in the article you said you sold HIMX in September 2013. Did you buy it back?

     

    Thank you.

    Author’s reply » Babbeone,

     

    I make it a point to not answer questions regarding my private investment choices. Mainly because I believe I deserve a dividing line between my business and personal life...but also because people are liable to use that information to make a PR spectacle of my personal investments. I'm not a fan of "marketing" stocks. I believe that RESEARCH is king.

     

    That being said, I also make it a point to strictly adhere to all laws and disclosure rules. Thus, you can assume that I had repurchased shares of HIMX at some point. Whether or not I still own those shares (and how much) is subject to my first comment.

     

    Hope that helps. Thanks for your readership and your question :)

     

    Kindest Regards,

     

    Mark G.

    Thank you for your answer, even though at this point it is still too expensive for me to subscribe to your Poisedtotriple, your articles on SA have helped me to make good financial choices, thanks again.

    Mark, you've said "I see no difference in a 100K portfolio and a 1M portfolio." But what would you say is the smallest initial portfolio that would work with your research? (Trying to rebuild after the divorce stripped me clean.) Fifty thousand? Ten thousand?
