Why This Tiny Stock Jumped From $4.50 to $82.00 in Six Weeks
Here's How This Company Pulled it Off...
Plus 10 NEW Stocks That Could Profit from
Similar "Triggers" in the Coming Weeks

Date: 

Dear Investor,

Why do some stocks take off while others in the same industry just sit there?

They skyrocket because they have a catalyst.  In fact, the right catalyst can trigger a 10-bagger in a hurry. I've seen it happen...

In 1999, cell phone stocks were all the rage, and Qualcomm was the darling of them all. Qualcomm was the leader in CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) -- a bandwidth-sharing technology that was about to become the industry standard. Virtually every telecom around the globe was slated to migrate to CDMA.

InterDigital, on the other hand, was a tiny patent holder in the wireless arena, largely ignored by investors. For the better part of 1999, InterDigital's stock meandered in a narrow $4.50-$5.50 range. That changed on November 17, 1999.

That was the day Qualcomm filed a report with the SEC disclosing that it had licensed an essential CDMA patent from InterDigital. Investors soon realized InterDigital would get royalties on every cell phone built to the new industry standard.

Talk about catalysts! It triggered +1,264% gains for InterDigital shareholders within six weeks, topping out at an intra-day high of $82 on December 30th.   

A Great Company Isn't Enough

As you can tell from the example above, the secret to making money in stocks isn't just finding a great company. Instead, the secret is finding great companies that are poised to benefit from a future catalyst.

Catalysts are agents that speed reactions between substances. It works the same way in investing.

If you remember your high school chemistry, catalysts are agents that speed reactions between substances. It works the same way in investing. A stock catalyst is something that creates a dramatic impact on a company's fortunes... and triggers a sudden rush into its stock.

When the right catalyst hits a stock, the Wall Street sales machine kicks into gear and investors flock to it in droves, furiously driving up the price.

A bear market may dampen the effect of a catalyst but it can't kill it.  Catalyst-driven stocks are like coiled springs, itching to explode as soon as the pressure is released.  At the first sign of a mood shift in a lousy market these are the first stocks to spring to life.  Mark my words: They rebound the fastest and the highest... like regular stocks on steroids. During a bull market they rocket even faster, and higher.

So what if there was a system that pinpointed the companies poised to benefit from a future catalyst?

What if told you with nearly 100% accuracy which stocks are going up... and nothing more?


Well, I searched for decades for a system like this... and a few years ago I finally found one. It was developed by Paul Tracy (who would later become my business partner and co-founder of StreetAuthority.com) and fine-tuned by Nathan Slaughter, an expert investment strategist.

Their system is called the "Catalyst Rating System" -- and it's so accurate, that right now 54 out of the 62 stocks it has pinpointed are making money.

Being right nearly 9 out of 10 times is good enough for me.

You'll find the proof of how well this system works below in the four "model portfolios" that Paul and Nathan maintain.

You'll also see how you can start using it for your own profits.

All security prices below are listed as of the close of trading on March 24, 2010.
