Hi, I'm Jimmy Butts.
I'm a Senior Analyst for StreetAuthority, one of America's largest independent investment research firms.
Here at StreetAuthority, we pride ourselves on research. Since opening our doors in 2001, we've created dozens of investment strategies... and helped individual investors make thousands and thousands of dollars.
But for the past two years, we've been quietly designing and beta-testing a new investment system...
A system that we believe could make you more even money in the stock market than anything we've ever created before.
In short: it solves one of the most common problems every investor faces -- how to get bigger gains in a shorter amount of time.
By using two unique indicators, it can identify when a stock is entering a "growth window," and help you pocket bigger returns in a fraction of the time.
So far, the results have been stunning.
By our calculations, this system produced gains of over 570% in the past decade.
In other words, if you put $100,000 in this system a decade ago, it would be worth over $670,000 today.
Also, this simple strategy would have helped you steer clear of market crashes. In the 2008 financial crisis, this system would have gotten you out of the market five months before the bottom. And it would have gotten you back in just four days after the bottom.
But more importantly, as you'll see, this strategy continues to deliver market-beating results today.
We've been quietly beta-testing this system with about 500 StreetAuthority readers for the past 18 months.
During that time, our model portfolio has beat the S&P by a wide margin... It's delivered a total return of 31.5%, beating the S&P 500's 26.3% return over the same time period.
And some of our picks have boasted gains of 17%... 40%... even 181% -- all in less than 13 months.
In fact, it's quickly become StreetAuthority's best-performing investment system. And our select group of beta-testers are already enjoying phenomenal gains.
George H. in Kenner, Louisiana, told us:
"My most profitable trades from your picks are: 1) HIMX - for a 95.68% gain, 2) PRMW - for a 26.5% gain, and 3) SANM - for a 17.59% all in less than 3 months!"
George isn't alone. James D/ from Florida says:
"Thank you for your great newsletter, which is certainly the most profitable in the StreetAuthority universe."
Now, for the first time since our beta-test began, we're revealing everything there is to know about this system... including exactly how you can put your money to work today.
I'll show you how it can identify when a stock enters a "growth window"... delivering bigger gains in a shorter amount of time as a result.
I'll also show you how it takes the emotion out of investing...
How it could deliver bigger returns from stocks you may currently own ...
And how independent studies from top universities show that the elements behind this system have worked for over 100 years.
What's more, I'll also reveal some of the "top buys" in our model portfolio. These include stocks that are flashing some of the strongest "buy" signals we've ever seen.
Let's get started...
We call our discovery the Maximum Profit system.
It has nothing to do with options, short-selling, or anything complicated.
In short: it allows you to get bigger gains in a shorter amount of time... by identifying when a stock is starting and ending a growth period.
Take Alcoa (NYSE: AA).
Alcoa dominates the aluminum industry, and has done so for well over a century.
It generates over $20 billion in annual sales thanks to its low costs and above-average profit margins.
In recent years, the company has been in an upward trend. If you'd invested in it three years ago, you'd be sitting on a 71% gain.
However... using the Maximum Profit system, you could have captured even bigger gains -- in a shorter amount of time.
On October 25, 2013 the system identified that Alcoa was entering a growth phase...
So we immediately published a report telling investors to "buy now."
Sure enough, within a year, the stock was up 85% with no signs of slowing.
In short, our system delivered a bigger gain in a fraction of the time.
Keep in mind: this system didn't use the usual metrics to spot this growth period. It didn't use earnings per share, PE ratios, analyst estimates, or anything like that. It uses completely different metrics... metrics that independent studies have shown to work for over 100 years, as you'll see.
A month later, the system identified another stock -- American Railcar Industries (Nasdaq: ARII).
This company isn't on a lot of people's radar, but it's been making a fortune thanks to the American energy boom.
See, companies are building pipelines to move oil from places like North Dakota to the Gulf Coast, but many of them won't be completed for years.
Meanwhile, railroad companies like American Railcar are already in place and are moving record amounts of oil across the country.
As a result American Railcar has delivered 30% total returns over the past year -- well ahead of the market.
That's not bad.
But thanks to the Maximum Profit system, we were able to do even better.
On November 22, 2013, it told us that American Railcar was entering a growth window.
We told investors to "buy now," and right on cue, the stock began to rise.
Then, a year later, the system also told us when the growth window was ending. It flashed another signal on November 21, 2014, indicating that it was time to sell.
When it was all said and done, investors saw gains of 57% -- more than triple the market.
Time after time, again and again...
For 18 months now, we have used this technique to squeeze even bigger gains out of high-quality companies.
And amazingly, this system has worked on all kinds of stocks. Energy, tech, defensive, you name it.
So what makes the Maximum Profit system so effective?
It all comes back to a discovery we made about two years ago... a breakthrough that happened while our research team was doing our "blue sky" research...
You see, as I said, our firm specializes in research. We're encouraged to do what's called "blue sky" research.
This is a research practice done by top innovators like Google and 3M. Workers are encouraged to dedicate a portion of their time -- 10% to 20% -- to their own independent research projects.
The popular email service Gmail was created during blue sky research. So were Post-It Notes, penicillin, and many more important breakthroughs.
As we've applied this practice to the financial markets, we've uncovered several interesting and profitable opportunities as well...
For example, in 2013, our research team discovered a small group of stocks paying much greater dividends than the financial press were reporting.
Have you ever heard of RLI Corp (NYSE: RLI)? It an insurance company that appears to pay just a 1.5% dividend yield.
But what most people don't know is that for the past four years, it's also paid a massive special dividend to close out each year -- in addition to its regular dividend payment.
In 2010 it paid $3.64 per share. In 2011 it paid $2.65 per share... all the way up to 2014, when it paid $3.18 per share at the end of the year.
So in reality, its yield has been as high as 8% for several years now.
Unfortunately, this isn't easy to discern by looking at popular websites. Unless you dig into the financial statements, you'd only see the 1.5% yield.
Thanks to our research, investors have been able to get up to 10 times the regular quarterly dividend.
Another time, one of our researchers got a tip from a contact about a tiny boomtown in British Columbia. This place was completely unknown. When we did a Google search on this town, no major media outlet had written about it.
He went up there to check it out, and he found that super-major resource companies had already started placing investments pegged in the tens of billions over the coming decade.
Companies like Shell, Chevron, Exxon and many more.
And industry insiders were whispering behind closed doors that it could be bigger than the Bakken and Eagle Ford shales -- combined.
He gave investors several ways to invest, including a company named Canadian Energy (OTC: CESDF).
A few months later, Bruce D. of Kitchener, Canada wrote telling us he made $9,600 on our recommendation.
But it was about two years ago that our team made the most exciting discovery yet -- the Maximum Profit system.
Our research team was looking for strategies or indicators with long track records of success. Something that could safely deliver big gains in a short amount of time... and take the emotion out of investing.
So we put our heads together and went to work.
We dug through academic journals... SEC filings... government data...
We also brought in some long-time market mavens to get their perspective. For example, we hired a Chartered Market Technician. There are only a few hundred of them in the world. He helped analyze the returns of basically the entire 20th century. Which strategies have worked best... which haven't...
We even brought in an accountant to get his perspective...
Of course, we found many different strategies. But if a particular strategy hadn't outperformed the market for at least 30 years, we didn't bother with it.
And it had to have worked during bull markets, bear markets, wars, market bubbles, inflation and deflation. Everything.
Eventually, we found the first piece.
We discovered a little-known strategy with market-beating results going all the way back to the year 1900.
Then, we found an indicator that some of the best investors have been using for decades. People like Warren Buffett, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and the iconic former mutual fund manager Peter Lynch.
Eventually, we combined these and one more proprietary indicator into the Maximum Profit system we're revealing today.
Using our expensive in-house research tools, we back-tested our results going back a decade.
As you can see, over the previous decade, it had beaten the market consistently.
|Maximum Profit System||S&P 500||Difference|
Had you been using it, you would have beat the market almost every year... sometimes by 10 percentage points... 28.9 percentage points... and more.
Not only that... but there was another added benefit -- safety.
In 2008, the market lost -43.4%. But our system actually gained 0.8%. The following chart shows that you would have sidestepped the bulk of the market crash...
Our system got completely out of the market five months before the bottom. Then, once the market hit bottom, the system was back in four days later.
Can you imagine the comfort and peace of mind this level of safety brings? Using our system, no longer do you have to ride an emotional rollercoaster during bear markets.
You can take the emotion out of the equation entirely.
Of course, we can't guarantee that you'll never take a loss. And frankly, I'd be skeptical of anyone who does make those kinds of guarantees.
But just note that the average loss from our beta test has been a mere -9.6%... while the gains have been much higher.
Just look at Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV)...
Normally, investing in airline companies is tough. Bankruptcies are rampant, and profit margins are razor thin.
But after our system spotted Southwest on May 27, 2014, it soared 59%.
The same thing happened with Himax Technologies (Nasdaq: HIMX). Our system spotted it during a 10-month growth phase, delivering 26% gains.
And it happened again with Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE: HCLP). During the five-month growth window from October 25, 2013 to March 31, 2014 it returned 30%.
I hope you're starting to see how accurate the Maximum Profit system can be at finding stocks right as they're entering a growth phase.
Better yet, I hope you're starting to see how it can identify stocks entering growth periods from all different sectors.
It can take any group of stocks and find those most likely to enter a growth phase.
For instance, you could take the stocks in Warren Buffett's portfolio.
A lot of people like to buy what Buffett's buying. Well, instead of just investing in his picks blindly, our system can help you focus on those that are growing the most, and maximize your gains.
This can work with any guru investor's picks.
Take Micron (NYSE: MU). It's owned by George Soros, David Einhorn, and a dozen other billionaire investors.
It's a leading provider of semiconductors -- the chips that run electronic devices.
Over the past year, the semiconductor sector underwent a big growth spurt. Sales broke out to new highs after being largely flat for three years.
Our system spotted this growth early on, flagging Micron on October 18, 2013. 13 months later, it was the biggest gainer in the industry, up 103%.
The system has been able to do this for any group of stocks. Say you want to take advantage of America's energy boom. Or companies yielding 10%-plus... or blue chip stocks... or small cap stocks...
Whatever it is, our system can identify the potential growth stocks, and profit from them.
That even includes stocks you already own... and those owned by our other experts here at StreetAuthority, as you'll see.
With that in mind, you can understand why investors are excited about the latest Maximum Profit buys. As I said, we're seeing some of the strongest buy signals to date... the kind that could deliver immediate gains.
But of course, our focus isn't just immediate gains. The system has also proven to beat the market over the long haul...
In fact, academic studies have shown that the indicators behind our system have beaten the market for decades.
Let me tell you about these indicators, along with several names and ticker symbols...
The Maximum Profit system uses two unique indicators.
These two indicators aren't widely-known. They aren't found on a balance sheet... an income statement... or in a company's SEC filings.
Taken by themselves, they have proven to deliver great results for investors. But we found that when you combine these two indicators, you're able to pocket even bigger gains in a shorter amount of time.
That's what happened with Lannett Company (NYSE: LCI), which we spotted on July 5, 2013.
For years, the company had been quiet. But just as the company was entering a growth window, the Maximum Profit system told us the company was a "buy."
In a quick 13 months, investors booked a 181% gain.
Of course, not every stock will go up that much. But we've been producing more modest gains regularly.
Take Pacer Industries.
Our system spotted it on June 21, 2013, and by the time it was acquired in April, 2014, it had delivered a market-crushing 40% return.
15%... 40%... 90%... over and over again, we've seen these kinds of gains -- and more -- all in less than a year.
There's every reason to believe that our latest picks could produce similar results. As you'll see in a minute, they're showing the exact same kinds of "buy" signals as previous big gainers.
When we've seen these "buy" signals in the past, stocks have shot up 44% in a matter of months.
While nothing is guaranteed, history suggests that our latest could deliver double, even triple-digit gains starting immediately.
That's because of the two indicators behind it...
You see, during our blue sky research, we found one indicator that stood out above all the rest.
It was first "discovered" by two researchers back in 1993.
Sheridan Titman and Narasimhan Jegadeesh published the first paper on it, concluding that it generates "significant positive returns."
In fact, they found that it's helped deliver market-beating gains for over 100 years, as you'll see.
But that was just the start...
Once Titman and Jegadeesh published their paper, other academics followed suit. PhD mathematicians and economists from the University of London, University of Chicago and many others also investigated this indicator.
In all, over 300 research papers have been published on it, dissecting it from every angle.
Again and again, these papers come to the same conclusion: This indicator -- relative strength -- can help you beat the market in the short and long-term.
If you've never heard of relative strength before, you're not alone. Most people haven't. Another name for it is momentum investing.
Here's how it works...
Simply put, relative strength tells you how fast a company's share price is moving upward. We compare the past six months' performance of a stock to the entire market.
If, over the past six months, a stock has outperformed 70% of all other stocks on the market, then it passes our relative strength test. The stock is performing strongly relative to its peers.
Now here's the interesting thing about relative strength...
Studies have consistently shown over the years that stocks that are currently performing well are likely to continue doing so in the future.
As Charles Kirkpatrick -- one of the pioneers of relative strength investing puts it: "Relative strength seems to breed more relative strength."
It sounds simple, and it is.
When a stock shows a high relative strength rating, it means the company has entered a growth window and has a high probability of delivering market-beating gains in the near future.
For a good example of how this works in real life, look again at American Railcar, a company I mentioned earlier.
Our system flagged the stock as having high relative strength in November 2013.
As you can see, in the months leading up to our "buy" signal, the stock began to outperform. It was just starting to show a legitimate uptrend.
Once it proved itself, we told investors about it. Sure enough, it continued to go up, delivering a 57% gain in less than a year.
Look again at the chart for Lannett Company and you'll see that it did the same thing...
In the months leading up to our "buy" signal, Lannett was just beginning to show promise. Once it showed that it was a solid investment, we recommended it... and it delivered a nearly 200% gain in a year.
The great thing about relative strength is, you don't have to try and catch a falling knife. Instead of trying to guess when a falling stock will rebound, you focus on stocks that are already moving in the right direction.
It's like the difference between waiting at a bus stop and hopping on a moving train.
Also, another great benefit is that using relative strength can help you avoid losses.
Of course, I'm not saying you'll never take a loss. There's no way to avoid losses entirely, and that includes relative strength investing
But since a falling stock almost always shows poor relative strength, these securities are simply left out of the process.
Furthermore, once a stock starts to flatten or fall, its relative strength falls too -- signaling that it's time to sell.
That's what happened with Sasol (NYSE: SSL).
Our system flagged it on September 13, 2013 right as it was beginning to show an uptrend. As expected, it quickly jumped higher.
Then, after about a year, Sasol's run came to an end. This caused its relative strength to drop, signaling a sell.
Anyone who followed our signals got a 16% total return. Those who didn't suffered a big loss.
I don't have to tell you how much peace of mind this brings. With relative strength, no longer do you have to fret and worry over whether to sell a stock.
The emotion is completely taken out of it.
You can sit back and follow proven buy and sell signals to get in and out of stocks.
As I said, hundreds of academic studies have been performed on relative strength, showing its effectiveness.
Here's one from the University of London...
Four researchers performed one of the most comprehensive studies to date. They studied 107 years of stock market returns for London's largest stocks. It went from 1900 through 2007. They compared stocks in an upswing verses those in a downswing. What they found is truly remarkable.
The stocks with relative strength -- the ones in an uptrend -- produced compound annual returns of 15.2%
Meanwhile, the stocks with no relative strength returned just 4.5% per year.
No wonder the researchers came to the conclusion that relative strength delivers "striking" and "remarkably persistent" returns.
Another landmark study was performed by an investment manager named James O'Shaugnessy. He is one of the foremost authorities on long-term investment strategies. Over the years, he's tested over 60 different market strategies to identify which, if any, were predictive of future performance.
His research demonstrated that one particular indicator outperformed all others -- relative strength.
From 1927 through 2009, this strategy returned an average of 14.6% per year. By comparison, the market returned just 10.4%.
As you can see in this chart, compounding 14% year over year turned every $10,000 into $572 million. The market's return wasn't even close.
Over a shorter time period, the results are equally impressive. 10 years at 14.6% would turn $10,000 into $39,000.
Even 5 years at that same rate would nearly double your money.
Because of these amazing returns, more and more investors are beginning to catch on to the power of relative strength...
A well-respected fund manager and certified market technician named Robert Colby published a paper on relative strength in 2009. He said:
Over the very long term, covering multiple decades and including several major bull/bear cycles, Relative Strength is one of the best stock selection strategies.And financial writer Jonathan Clements, writing in The Wall Street Journal, said:
"Academic research suggests that the best performing stocks and funds in any given year often enjoy good results in the year that follows. Meanwhile, losing positions tend to keep on losing."
Fund manager and PhD Tom Hancock says:
"Price momentum has a long history as a successful stock selection strategy."
Now, seeing how powerful relative strength can be, most people are content to use it by itself.
But not us.
Even with relative strength's amazing track record, we wanted to be doubly-sure that the Maximum Profit system recommended good companies.
So we combined relative strength with another indicator...
You see, relative strength, is what's called a technical indicator.
It determines whether or not a stock is a "buy" based strictly on its price movement over the past six months.
You've seen how powerful it can be as an indicator. Over 100 years of data show that it's outperformed the market. But it turns out, you can add another level of safety and growth by adding a fundamental indicator... an indicator that tells you you're investing in a good, fundamentally-sound company.
This particular fundamental indicator is a favorite of guru investors. Legends like Peter Lynch, whose Magellan Fund returned 29% annually over the 13 years he ran it...
Billionaire Donald Yacktman, whose fund has nearly doubled the market since launching in 1993...
And of course Warren Buffett, the world's greatest investor.
All these gurus have said that this indicator is a key factor in analyzing a stock.
I'm talking about cash flow.
Most people use earnings to analyze a company. They look at things like the PE ratio, earnings-per-share, earnings estimates, and the like.
The problem is, earnings can be manipulated. Enron, after all, showed strong earnings leading up to its collapse.
Cash flow is different. It's not an accounting measure that you can create out of thin air.
Cash flow measures the actual amount of money coming into a business. Not "paper profits," or some future income stream that may or may not pan out.
Cash flow is the money a business uses to buy new factories, pour into research and development, or deliver back to its investors via dividends.
It's the lifeblood of any company. Without it, you wouldn't have enough money to make it through the month.
Think of it this way. If someone you knew earned $5,000 a month, but spent $7,000 a month, then they'd be in bad shape. In this case, they would have a negative cash flow. Paying bills is tough... and building wealth is next to impossible.
Compare that to someone who spends $7,000 but brings in $10,000 a month. He has plenty of cash flow -- $3,000, in this case -- to not only meet his expenses, but also save, invest, go on vacation... you name it.
It's obvious that you'd rather be the person rich in cash flow.
It's the exact same thing for a company. If a business doesn't have strong cash flow, it's probably headed for trouble -- and there's no way to hide it.
That's why The Wall Street Journal says: "Forget about profit, cash flow is king."
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos explained the importance of cash flow verses other metrics in an interview with the Harvard Business Review. He said:
"Percentage margins are not one of the things we are seeking to optimize. It's the absolute dollar-free cash flow per share that you want to maximize... So if you could take the free cash flow, that's something that investors can spend. Investors can't spend percentage margins."
For these reasons, we make sure every company we recommend has strong cash flow.
This is because we're not just looking for high-flyers. We're looking for fundamentally sound companies with rising share prices that aren't headed for a collapse. And if a company is increasing its cash flow at a rapid clip, it's not likely to go belly up any time soon.
But still, we're not content with strong cash flow alone.
To pass our test, a company has to be growing its cash flow.
The same way a company's share price must be outperforming 70% of its peers, its cash flow must be doing the same thing.
To show the kinds of results growing cash flow can produce, we fired up our research tools.
We spend millions of dollars on research every year, which allows us to run calculations and find opportunities that we wouldn't be able to otherwise.
In this case, we went looking for what we call "Cash Flow Aristocrats," the biggest cash flow generators on the market.
We pulled up a database of all U.S.-listed stocks on our Bloomberg terminal (the industry standard). Then, we used a proprietary algorithm to identify the companies generating the most cash flow each year, going back five years.
(This is the same cash flow analysis we use every time we look for an individual stock for our Maximum Profit portfolio.)
The results were stunning...
As the chart shows, these stocks have beaten the S&P nearly 3-to-1. Even with the market having one of its best five-year periods in history, it was no match for our Cash Flow Aristocrats.
MPLX is a good example (NYSE: MPLX) of the power of cash flow.
Since its 2013 IPO, it's been one of the most cash-flow friendly stocks on the market. It's a Master Limited Partnership with thousands of miles of pipelines. It charges oil companies a "toll" to use those pipelines, and usually collects the same amount of money no matter what the price of oil.
Because of this, it's boosted its cash flow at a rapid clip. When our system spotted it in April, 2014, MPLX had grown its free cash flow by a whopping 92% year over year -- faster than 70% of all other companies
Its share price confirmed that it was in the early stages of a breakout, so we tagged the company as a "buy."
Just as we expected, it went on to deliver over 30% gains in 6 months -- well ahead of the market.
By combining these two indicators -- relative strength and cash flow -- we're able to better know when a stock is entering and leaving a growth period.
First, rising cash flow growth tells us the company has been bringing in more and more money. So we know it's a good, fundamentally-sound business.
Second, relative strength tells us that the market is starting to catch on. The share price is gaining momentum, entering a possible breakout phase.
That's how this system has been able to deliver bigger gains in a shorter amount of time. It can catch stocks during their growth periods.
You invest in a security while it's growing... then, once it slows down... you jump to the next.
That way, instead of getting a 71% gain with Alcoa in three years, you can get 85% in one year...
Instead of watching your shares of Southwest stay flat for years, you can gain 47% in 7 months...
Instead of watching your shares of Sasol rise and then plunge, you can lock in a gain and move on to the next opportunity.
And on and on...
As I showed, the gains from this strategy have been unprecedented...
and see exactly how much money you could make with this system using actual historical figures...
Between 2004 and 2013, the Maximum Profit system returned an average of 21.2% every year. The S&P 500 only returned 6.8% annually during the same time.
When you compound those returns year after year, the difference is even more staggering. Again, here's what you would have earned on a $100,000 investment during that time period, if you used the Maximum Profit system:
Best of all, you could have largely avoided the 2008 crash.
Zooming in on 2008, you can see that you would have sidestepped the bulk of the market crash...
Our system got completely out of the market five months before the bottom. Then, once the market hit bottom, we were back in four days later.
That's the beauty of this strategy. Just as the system sends a crystal clear signal when to buy, it also signals when to sell. If a stock shows poor relative strength, or falling cash flow growth, it tells us to stay away.
Bottom line: Figuring conservatively, history suggests the Maximum Profit system could give you bigger gains in a shorter amount of time.
History also suggests that it could also help you avoid catastrophic losses during a market crash... and beat the market over the long haul.
Obviously nothing is guaranteed. There's no such thing as a "sure thing" when it comes to investing.
But remember: right out of the gate, the system delivered gains of 15%... 30%...40%... even 181% -- in about a year or less.
And our model portfolio is beating the S&P, even at a time when the S&P is having some of its best years ever.
What's more, as I'll show you in a minute, right now we're seeing some of the strongest buy signals we've ever seen.
The point is, the Maximum Profit system has beaten the market in the short and long term, with all different kinds of stocks.
It's helping investors sleep better at night, and delivering one market-beating stock after the next.
No matter what kind of investor you are, I think you'll see that it offers something for you.
I'd like to help you take advantage of it today... so you can see what it could do to your own portfolio.
But before I do, there's something very important I want to show you...
The great thing about the Maximum Profit system is it can work on all kinds of stocks. You can take any group of stocks, apply the Maximum Profit system to them, and identify which are most likely entering a growth phase.
That's exactly what we've done with the picks of our fellow experts here at StreetAuthority.
You see, I run the Maximum Profit system with my partner, Brad Briggs (more on both of us in a minute).
Since Brad and I both work for StreetAuthority, we are in a unique position. We have unlimited access to the portfolios and stock picks of all our fellow analysts.
This means we can look through their picks and find those with the strongest relative strength and cash flow.
That's exactly what we've done in our model portfolio. We take all the stocks our peers are recommending at any given time, and apply the Maximum Profit system to them.
As you probably know, the StreetAuthority team of experts is one of the best in the business.
Take Amy Calistri. She's been investing for 30 years. Right out of college she made so much money with her first investments that she made the down-payment on her house with the profits.
Today, in one of her portfolios, Amy has an 84% win rate over the past 5 years.
In another one, she has a 93% win rate since 2010.
Another of our experts, Dave Forest, is one of the most connected people you'll ever find. He spends several months a year in foreign countries doing boots on the ground research. He's found undiscovered resource stocks that have gone on to soar over 1,100% in as little as 10 months.
Andy Obermueller, our growth stock expert, has spotted over 20 triple-digit stocks in four years.
In income expert Nathan Slaughter's portfolio, 22 out of 33 stocks are winning as we speak. They're yielding up to 16% and have delivered gains as high as 446%.
I could go on and on, but the point is, they're some of the best market practitioners you'll ever find.
Well, we realized that we'd be crazy not to take advantage of their combined stock market wisdom.
So in our model portfolio, we only recommend stocks already vetted by one of StreetAuthority's experts.
This gives each pick yet another layer of "quality assurance," and means each stock must pass at least two filters -- ours and theirs -- to get recommended.
Many of the stocks I've shown you today were found using this process.
Alcoa and its 85% gain came from Dave Forest's Scarcity & Real Wealth portfolio. Southwest and its 59% gain came from Nathan Slaughter's Total Yield portfolio. And so on and so forth.
On their own, all our fellow analysts' picks are great investments. But we try to see if any of these stocks are about to break out. So every two weeks, we fire up our Maximum Profit system and see which of their picks are the most likely to succeed in the near future.
We give each of them a ranking based on their relative strength and cash flow. Each stock gets a score out of 100 based on our two indicators -- an average of the two.
So if a stock's relative strength rating is 90, and its cash flow rating 70, we average that and give it a Maximum Profit score of 80. A perfect score of 100 is very rare.
If any stock passes our tests, we consider it for our model portfolio.
Here's a snapshot of all the stocks in our model portfolio as we speak.
|Security (Symbol)||Date Added||Total Return||Score|
|Alcoa (NYSE: AA)||10/25/2013||85.1%||60|
|Southwest (NYSE: LUV)||5/27/2014||59.3%||82|
Out of fairness to our paid subscribers, I can't show you the names of all these stocks in this presentation. But as you can see, they're boasting some very high scores. 82... 87... even 91 out of 100.
These are some of the highest scores we see. Less than 0.1% of all stocks ever has a score above 90.
And while past results don't guarantee future returns, when this has happened before, the high scorer has crushed the market.
Pacer Industries is a good example.
Our system gave this company a score of 90 on June 20, 2013.
Over the next 10 months it delivered a 44% gain before being bought out. Much better than the market's 14% return.
There's every reason to believe the stocks in our model portfolio right now could do the same.
So how can you take advantage of our system, and our latest picks, immediately?
I've prepared what we call the Maximum Profit Investment Package. This will allow you, no matter how big or small your nest egg, to start building your own maximum profit portfolio immediately.
This package is completely free. It's a series of three special reports with all the tools you'll need to proceed with confidence.
The first report is arguably the most valuable. It's called The Complete Maximum Profit Model Portfolio.
As you can guess, it's the key that unlocks all the stocks in our model portfolio. It reveals all 10 of our holdings, and gives a full write-up on each, including their current scores, growth prospects, and more.
As we said, these stocks are scoring as high as 91 out of 100. This is extremely high. Only about a dozen or so stocks ever reach that level in any given year.
One of our top holdings was "pre-screened" by income expert Nathan Slaughter
It's a travel company perfectly positioned for long-term growth. It's the most dominant player in the online travel space, three and a half times bigger than its closest competitor. Yet it only has a 4% market share of the global travel services industry -- leaving significant headroom to grow.
It's also one of the most shareholder-friendly companies on the market. Over the past four years it's bought back $1.4 billion of its own stock.
All this has translated into strong cash flow and a rising share price, giving the company a Maximum Profit score of 83.
Another of our holdings was "pre-screened" by Amy Calistri. She found it for her Stock of the Month publication, where she's boasting an 84% win rate over the last 5 years.
When we ran it through our Maximum Profit system, it passed with flying colors.
It's a leading healthcare company, but more importantly, it's a cash flow machine. Over the past year, it's grown its cash flow faster than roughly 95% of all other stocks. It even made the list of our Cash Flow Aristocrats.
Its share price is up about 10% since we tagged it, and it's now boasting a Maximum Profit score of 91, meaning it's an immediate "buy."
You'll get all the details on both of these stocks -- and more -- in our brand new special report, The Complete Maximum Profit Model Portfolio.
The second report is an invaluable resource we've put together for anyone just getting started with our system.
It's called The Maximum Profit Starter Kit
Laid out in plain English, this guide covers all the ins and outs of the Maximum Profit system, and explains exactly why a stock becomes a "buy" or "sell."
You'll see examples from the 300-plus studies confirming our strategy's effectiveness as well as dozens of bonus tips that have helped the system beat the market for years.
Think of it as the complete playbook on exactly how the Maximum Profit system works.
Then, as a companion report to this starter kit, we've also prepared a third report called: The Top 5 Stocks to Start Your Own Maximum Profit Portfolio.
As the name implies, this report will reveal the top five stocks to create a Maximum Profit portfolio of your own
As you'll see, these five stocks are well-diversified across the market... and have the potential to deliver market-crushing gains in the near future.
As I said, these reports are all free.
What's more, they're just the beginning of the help I'd like to offer you.
Brad and I run a research service here at StreetAuthority called Maximum Profit. As the name implies, the entire focus is on helping investors use our Maximum Profit system.
In Maximum Profit, we do all the heavy lifting for you. Every two weeks, we release our latest findings. We re-score all our stocks, and send you a full update on which to buy, and which to sell.
You don't have to run any numbers, make any calculations, or buy any expensive analytical tools. We take care of everything.
You get to sit back and receive the highest-ranked stocks in your inbox every other week.
Think of this service as the total package to everything you need to know about the Maximum Profit system.
The great thing is, it's not the kind of thing you have to follow closely every day.
We don't bombard you with "hot" trades... or overload your inbox with unproven stock picks.
Our system flags about two stocks a month. And we tend to hold picks for anywhere from six to twelve months. So you don't have to worry about racking up high trading fees... or having your money tied down for long periods of time.
In each issue, we also discuss which sectors our system says are likely to outperform in the coming months, and give you timeless investment advice.
For example, one month we discussed how to protect yourself from the market's biggest myths...
Another time we showed readers the one number to trust in financial statements...
We've also shown how to generate 40% gains from Buffett's favorite sector...
And many other topics.
Brad and I put our heads together to analyze the trends and opportunities happening across the market, and help investors exploit the best opportunities.
You may have actually seen excerpts of both Brad's and my work already.
Our research is regularly featured on StreetAuthority.com, as well as numerous sites across the internet. Places like, Yahoo Finance, Nasdaq.com, Barron's, MarketWatch, and many more.
In fact, our work is followed by over two million readers in over 175 countries. And our picks have delivered gains of 54%... 86%... even over 200%, to name a few.
I hold my series 6, 63, 65, and 26 securities licenses. I also spent several years in the financial services industry working with retirees, and studied international business in Germany and Argentina.
As for my partner, Brad Briggs, he's a former award-winning journalist and has led our research team for the past 6 years.
More importantly, over the years, both of us have been heavily involved in most of the big research projects undertaken here at StreetAuthority.
For example, about a year ago, we helped income expert Nathan Slaughter develop a unique income system called Total Yield.
Our team discovered that a handful of stocks were paying a lot more money toward shareholders than they appeared to. They paid dividends... but they also paid out millions and millions of dollars toward shareholders in additional payments, too.
What's more, these stocks had also beat the market by 3-to-1 over a 30-year period.
Thanks to our team and Nathan's work, in less than a year investors have seen gains of 12.3%... 28.8%... even 99.4%
But of all the systems we've been a part of, the Maximum Profit system is by far the best we've ever seen.
Where else can you get a system that takes the emotion out of investing, and can identify a growth phase as it's unfolding?
So far, people seem to be enjoying our work...
Our customer service team sent out an anonymous survey, asking readers what they thought of us and our work. The overwhelming praise we received was very gratifying...
"Right now I believe that they are doing a terrific job."
"Jimmy and Brad do a good job of explaining why the stocks are recommended"
"[The service] is a very worthy read with plenty of actionable suggestions"
The minute you sign up for this service, you'll have access to everything we've ever published for this service.
Most importantly, we'll also rush you a complimentary electronic copy of the packet we mentioned: The Maximum Profit Investment Packet.
It comes free with the subscription. It's the perfect introduction to our system... and gives you the knowledge and stock picks you need to get started immediately.
How much does this service cost?
This obviously isn't your run-of-the-mill research service. It's arguably our most successful... so it's no surprise that it's also one of our most expensive.
It cost us tens of thousands of dollars just to get the system up and running. Heck, we spend a few thousand dollars every month just to comb through our database.
That's why a full year costs $994.
But remember: this is only a trial subscription. You'll have the next 60 days to decide if our investment plan is what you're looking for.
Also, with how well the plan has been doing, you may be able to cover that cost quickly. After all, if you'd put just $2,000 into Alcoa, it would have covered your subscription and then some.
Still, we don't want price to prevent a single person from using our system. So we've asked our publisher to give a temporary price cut.
He delivered in a big way.
I'll tell you exactly how much the discount is, but there's one more piece of research I want to show you first...
As I mentioned, in our model portfolio we focus exclusively on stocks already pre-screened by our fellow StreetAuthority experts. This gives them another layer of quality, and ensures that the stocks we recommend are all fundamentally sound.
You've seen the incredible results this has delivered. After a year and a half of doing this, we're well ahead of the market.
But one of the great things about our system is that you can take any group of stocks and find those that are most likely to enter a growth period.
You can zero in on income stocks... growth stocks... you name it.
That's exactly what we've been doing. In addition to our model portfolio, we also have four other portfolios. These four portfolios each zero in on a niche market -- and identify the most likely to succeed.
One portfolio focuses on income opportunities. Another on small cap stocks opportunities. Another on undervalued growth stocks. And another on exchange-traded funds.
For these portfolios, we combine our system with advanced screening methods to uncover the top 5 stocks in each of these arenas.
In the past, picks from this group of stocks have been some of our biggest winners.
There was a company called G-III Apparel Group (Nasdaq: GIII). It was a Maximum Profit Undervalued Growth Opportunities holding. It gave us a 32% total return in about five months while the S&P 500 returned a measly 5.3% during that same time.
Then there was Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE: HCLP). It produced a nice 30% total return in the Maximum Profit Income Opportunities portfolio in a quick five months -- outpacing the 7.4% the S&P returned over the same period.
Another pick, Lannett Company, was a Maximum Profit Small Cap Opportunity. It delivered a 181% gain in 13 months.
Well, right now, these portfolios each have stocks that could post similar gains. They've flashing the exact same kinds of scores as these ones did before they soared.
For instance, five stocks are sitting at 72, 74, 85, 91, and even 94.
If a score above 90 is rare, you can only imagine how rare a 94 is. Of the nearly 15,000 stocks available, only a very small handful receives a score this high in any given year.
With this in mind, we've created another report called: The Secret Formula Behind Our Maximum Profit Opportunities Portfolios
In it, we explain exactly what goes into these portfolios, and give you the names and tickers of the top stocks in each portfolio -- including the stock flashing a 94.
The minute you sign up for Maximum Profit, we'll rush you a copy.
As I said, the regular price for Maximum Profit is $994.
Honestly, I think that's a steal considering that it's the top picks from all our experts.
If you were to buy all their work separately, it would cost as much as $3,110.
But for a limited time, our publisher has agreed to a 50% discount, bringing the cost all the way down to $497.
That's for an entire year... 26 issues.
In other words, for about a dollar a day -- a fraction of the cost of a daily coffee -- you could have unlimited access to an investment strategy with over 100 years of success.
Here's the bottom line...
If you're looking for a proven system with a long history of success, you've found it. This strategy has beaten the market in every test, under all circumstances, going all the way back to 1900.
It's also helped folks avoid the full brunt of market crashes... and jump back in the market once things turn around.
And it also continues to work today.
While nothing is guaranteed, it's helping folks beat one of the fastest-growing bull markets, and could do the same for you.
Judging by how well this system has done for decades, I'm confident that if you use it, it could deliver double-digit annual gains, and help you avoid losing your shirt in a bear market.
Of course, nothing is guaranteed. Investing always involves risk. But just remember...
Numerous studies show Relative Strength investing has delivered 14% annual growth going all the way back to 1900.
That's through several world conflicts... the Great Depression, the crash of 1987, and many other crippling events.
Yet our system didn't miss a beat.
And as we showed you, it outperformed the market 5-to-1 from 2003 to 2013, returning 21% annually.
And it continues to outperform today.
If you sign up for a trial subscription today, we'll give you The Maximum Profit Investment Package. This includes 3 special reports.
