I am an active husband, father, lawyer (more than 24 years, how time flies), and investor. I believe in contrarian investing, i.e., going where the crowd isn't. I believe that successful investing, like successful living, requires equal parts listening and evaluating, followed by independent decision making.

For the past 30 years, I have been involved in startups, as a founder, and active investor. My first company was purchased by Johnson & Johnson, which set the foundation for future investments.
My level of trading escalated after graduating from college, primarily as a result of my relationship with the founder of the Silicon Valley venture capital firm, Institutional Venture Partners, (Netflix, Twitter, Oracle). By focusing on VC backed companies, I soon learned the advantage of investing in promising companies before they became household names. My interest in startups has never waned, and has become my primary focus today.
I have been seriously into stocks since the early 1990's and into options for the past several years. Since early 2010 I've become particularly interested in dividend growth stocks to hold for the long term. In conjunction with that I occasionally use options to boost performance. Prior to that, made and lost a lot of money in the market with each boom and bust.
Since late 2010 I have been working on a system for picking dividend growth stocks with the best potential for sustainable growth. The system ranks the stocks based on their Potency Score, a metric I have devised that uses a multitude of fundamental, valuation, performance, and other data and their inter-relations to forecast a stock's ability for sustainable dividend growth. A stock with such ability is bound to also produce respectable capital gains. My math background has come handy in the process.
I have also created a 12-ETF portfolio strategy named The Immortal Portfolio, which is intended to beat the market in the long run. I have described both of these systems in my SA articles.
Currently working a full time job (non-financial business) and managing my own personal investment accounts.

John is a 1979 graduate of the Notre Dame Law School and a 1976 graduate of the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He was admitted to the bar in 1980 and licensed to practice as a CPA in 1981.

I am the founder and director of three companies: Euro Pacific Capital (www.europac.net), a full service, registered broker-dealer and RIA which specializes in foreign securities; Euro Pacific Precious Metals (www.europacmetals.com), a gold & silver coin and bullion dealer; and Euro Pacific Asset Management (www.europacificfunds.com), a fund management company that is building a family of mutual funds based on my economic philosophy.
I am most well-known for accurately and publicly predicting the collapse of the housing and credit markets, the subprime crisis, and the increasing price of gold relative to the US dollar, resulting in the viral YouTube video "Peter Schiff Was Right."
I fly around the country and the world speaking to diverse groups, from academic conferences to Tea Party rallies. I have also appeared regularly on cable news stations since the mid-2000s trying to warn people of the impending economic collapse brought on by destructive fiscal and economic policy in Washington.
To that end, I published my first book, "Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse," in early 2007, predicting the 2008 economic crisis while the mainstream commentators were saying it was impossible. Then, at the height of the crisis, I released "The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets," in which I showed readers how to help protect their finances in turbulent times. I've written updated versions of both Crash Proof and The Little Book since then, talking about how my predictions fared and why the worst of the crash is still ahead of us. I also wrote a book with my brother based on a popular comic book my dad wrote in the '70s. "How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes" is an illustrated fable that starts with three guys on an island and uses allegory to explain exactly how we got into our current mess.
In the 2010 election season, I ran for the US Senate seat of retiring Senator Chris Dodd in my home state of Connecticut in order to bring attention to the mounting problems in this country. While I did not win the seat, my message of fiscal and monetary sanity was brought to a new audience of voters and political leaders.
I've had a regular video blog on YouTube since 2009, called The Schiff Report (www.youtube.com/user/SchiffReport) and, after giving up my long-running Wall Street Unspun podcast, I am now the host of a nightly radio show called The Peter Schiff Show (www.schiffradio.com).

Scott Nystrom, Ph.D. is the Editor of the Gold Stock Strategist newsletter.
Dr. Nystrom spent 25 years pouring over economic and financial data, crunching numbers, writing economic policy briefs, and authoring complex studies while working at the White House Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Congress, in academia, and the private sector. He taught microeconomics, financial analysis, and health economics courses at graduate business schools and to senior Congressional staff. Dr. Nystrom has testified before Congress on the unintended economic effects of government action. Decision makers want to know what he is thinking.
Over the past 20 years and as a self directed investor, he has applied his extensive skills to his personal investments with great success.
Dr. Nystrom advocates and uses a top-down/bottom up, sector rotation investment approach. This method involves identifying: (1) global economic and financial trends—the “top down,” (2) growth sectors, (3) undervalued companies in the favored sector based on fundamental analysis—the “bottom up.” As high growth sectors rotate, he moves assets into the latest favored sector. Dr. Nystrom explains, “My investment approach is like surfing. You need to get on the wave while it is building and move off the wave before it crests. The gold bull market is building right now and that is why I think it is time for savvy investors to begin adding gold producing stocks to their portfolio.”
