This network is being launched on Linked In. The focus will be on intelligence gathered by executives concerning special situations in equities. Executive contacts and specific expertise often have immense value in uncovering exceptional opportunity for investment. During my 48 years in the investment business many of the very best investment opportunities came from my executive clients. I remember back in the late seventies a utilities engineer from New York told me he was buying many millions of shares of Telephonos De Mexico for .125 cents per share paying 10% in dividends. This investment eventually made him extremely wealthy. More recently over the past few months a client asked me to buy a biotech stock that was not heavily covered by brokerage firms and it doubled in a short few months. This was the inspiration for the creation of this network. We are not interested in inside information. We simply seek information about special situation securities that are not receiving Wall Street attention.
Brokerage firms generally advise and follow a limited number of higher priced stocks that are already heavily owned by institutions. They neglect special situations that might be low priced. This is our network’s primary interest. We are not looking for penny stocks, but companies with real value and breakthrough opportunities that are not widely known by institutions. We are not looking for short term trades or small gains. We are looking for a potential of 100% gains or more over a period of four to five years. I have found that these opportunities are found in pre IPO investments, IPO’s and publicly traded stocks that fall out of favor and find new life based on some triggering event.
When these opportunities present themselves it is helpful to have help from someone who has the experience, expertise, technology and tools to help determine the correct price to pay and to develop a plan for risk control before purchase. I have the expertise and the resources and have spent my working life refining these skills, especially as pertains to out of favor companies. As curator I will attempt to be helpful.
I believe you make your money when you buy, just like real estate. Unlike real estate it pays to have someone monitoring your investment each day, every day and encourage you to take partial profits when your stock is overextended or to encourage additional purchase when it is oversold. Low priced stocks have significant volatility. These actions may increase your return and lower your risk.
We are not stockbrokers. This network is designed to be an aid to independent investors. We will pay attention to the securities that are posted by our members and endeavor to be helpful.
The greater the number of sources, the more important this intelligence may be for you as a member of this exclusive network. With an experienced curator to screen out issues that are overpriced or that have serious deficiencies, the network will have access to the very best ideas. You may access this information at your convenience.
Experts will be invited to aid us in understanding some of the opportunities that are most interesting and least understood by the investing public. We can do this on internet radio, on a go to meeting format or at special networking dinner meetings. Often we may be able to record the event so you may take advantage at your convenience.
The network will also focus on the concerns of its members by posting job opportunities and other information that members ask for.
