for 25 Cents a Barrel”
And when I took profits, this oil was worth 29,900% more than what I “paid” for it. You see, there really is a “shadow economy” out there where people who know how make astronomical sums of money.
Many years spent working high up inside this industry showed me how to tap into this shadow economy. Now you can be among those “who know how,” too.
Starting 48 hours from now, you can apply the same Shadow Stock Strategy I used to buy oil for 25¢ a barrel… to my next three recommendations poised to grow 318%... 450%... and 603%… without options, commodities, or big risks.
Bottom line: Anyone could have done what I did… I can’t tell you how much money I made on this transaction personally, but I can tell you this: When you buy oil this cheap, it's as easy as pie to double, triple, quadruple your money with virtually no risk or uncertainty at all.
Bottom line: Anyone could have done what I did…But, in the four minutes it took me to complete this transaction, the oil I owned was worth 3,900% more than what I’d paid for it.
I can’t tell you how much money I made on this transaction personally, but I can tell you this: When you buy oil this cheap, it's as easy as pie to double, triple, quadruple your money with virtually no risk or uncertainty at all.In fact, what I did was so simple anyone could have done it.
* I bought some oil at 12.5¢ a barrel that, effectively, increased the gains you see here. These are conservative gains anyone could easily have made.
Beating out the big “oil sharks”…
To say I was “excited” by my gains on this oil play is an understatement.
I was overjoyed.
Here I was, buying oil for 30,000% LESS than the biggest of the big boys.
You see, the world’s sharpest “oil sharks” were there on the scene at the same time I was… private equity, hedge fund, investment bank types… and they were looking at precisely the same oil situation.
I knew this crowd from my days working at Merrill, Swiss Bank and ADP.
But just to give you an idea of who these players are…
And yet, all of these guys missed the “big score” by a country mile.
Despite stacks of research, armies of analysts, they all paid dearly for the oil I bought at what became a 29,900% discount.
But for me, it wasn’t just about the money I was making, as sweet as that was. It was about “sticking it” to these shadowy “dark market” operators who take pleasure in controlling the markets and squeezing out the little guy as they rake in their super-sized profits.
Of course, I’d been developing this strategy – what I call my Shadow Stock Strategy – for years. And I’d made lots of good money with it before.
But this was the first time I’d beaten out the big money boys right under their noses. It was sweet indeed.
And the moral of the story was this:
Regular investors could “swim with the sharks” and make BIG money. Instead of getting squeezed out… or having the juiciest profits skimmed off… regular investors could beat the big money players at their own game if they just knew how to do it.
Now THAT was exciting.
So I shared my secret with a few others…
My oil play convinced me my strategy had huge possibilities for regular investors of ordinary means looking for sound and safe profits for their retirement portfolios.
So I shared my secret with a few people who know and trust me implicitly.
And happily, the sharing paid off handsomely for them…
And other results gave me additional confirmation my strategy worked for regular investors.
But here’s the important point:
The daily news became our “tip sheet”…
It didn’t matter which sector we invested in…
It didn’t matter which industry we invested in…
It didn’t matter which country we invested in…
It didn’t even matter which trend we invested in…
It was as if we could open the financial pages at random, point to a headline, and this strategy gave us our next big win. We didn’t need “inside information” or reams of analysis —the daily news became our “tip sheet.” And it rarely failed us.
In other words, the profits were in plain sight for anyone with eyes to see.
Over and over again, we saw double, triple, even quadruple-digit gains… and without the risk or uncertainty of options or futures contracts.
And these were not what I call “roman candles,” either. Stocks that shoot up, but flame out and fall to earth just as quickly. No…
All of these “shadow stocks” drew (and continue to draw) profits from trends, technologies, industries, or economies that will continue to grow for years, even decades, to come.
Regular investors seeking long-term profits to carry them through retirement can count on these “shadow stocks” as their retirement “annuity.”
Shadow Stock #1
Are you profiting from Brazil’s $1.7 trillion economic boom? News headlines screamed the story of Brazil’s economic boom, but how are you profiting from it? Which Brazilian stock would you play to capture this growth?
One shadow stock has already given investors an initial 1,892% gain without options… with much more to come.
I’ve played Brazil profitably several times during this period using my shadow stock strategy. And if you think the Brazilian boom is stopping any time soon, consider this: Brazil has already achieved energy independence largely through sugar-based ethanol… It’s sitting on deep-water oil reserves equal to the largest holdings in the Middle East… And it has a housing market going through the roof.
Or how about this goose and its “golden eggs”…
Shadow Stock #2
Are you profiting from Singapore’s $223 billion miracle? Jim Rogers is.
Jim Rogers, world-renowned commodities billionaire and former partner of George Soros, doesn’t just travel to Singapore or “do business” in parts of the Far East. He’s picked up and moved – lock, stock and barrel – from New York to Singapore. And he’s making sure his daughter is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
An economic miracle is sweeping Southeast Asia, and nowhere more strongly than in Singapore. Singapore’s per capita income is already higher than Spain’s and New Zealand’s. The world’s economic “center of gravity” is shifting to the East, and the “smart money” is going there, too. But you don’t have to move to Singapore like Jim Rogers to cash in…
One shadow stock has already handed investors an initial 315% bonanza… with much more to come… without options.
And here’s the compelling part: U.S. investors can play NONE of Singapore’s top companies individually, except through volatile over-the-counter plays. The ONLY way to gather these “golden eggs” is with shadow stocks.
The point is this:Unless you’re larding your retirement portfolio with these reliable “cash cows,” you’re missing out on decades of reliable double, triple, quadruple-digit growth that could be fueling your future.
Now I’m sharing my secret with you…
I call it the Shadow Stock Strategy. And its overwhelming power is based on one central, but little-noticed or understood, fact:
A landmark study by Brinson, Hood, Beebower confirms this. In the portfolios they studied, 93% of the differences in performance were directly attributable to “shadow stocks.”
Even professional money managers couldn’t significantly improve performance by selecting different investments or trying to time the market. Selecting the right “shadow stocks” was the one decision that was proven to produce the biggest bang for the buck.
The implications of this study are tremendous. Here’s why:
Shadow stocks are like finding profits everywhere you look.
That’s because shadow stocks tap DIRECTLY into the current mind-boggling growth of the world economy, estimated at $66 trillion and growing at 5% a year.
Of course, it’s impossible to “invest in the world” per se, but you get pretty darn close with shadow stocks. And you do it with much greater safety and much lower risk than with ANY other investment.
Shadow stocks make it easy to invest directly in ANY of the global, record-shattering trends you see plastered all over the financial press.
So, if you’ve ever watched…
An emerging economy grow at double digits…
A groundbreaking technology launch a cure for the cruelest disease…
A nascent industry promise to change the world…
A once-abundant natural resource become as scarce and valuable as gold…
and wondered – “how can I get a piece of THAT?” – shadow stocks make it easy to take your share of the huge profits.
And without risking your money on iffy “thinly traded” stocks, options, commodities, or any other tricky strategy.For example…
Point… Click… Profit!
As gold rushed from $273 to over $1000 an ounce…
As energy broke all records…
As agriculture became one of the hottest commodities of all…
…you could have picked off easy gains by using my Shadow Stock Strategy to invest in the right shadow stock. And your money would still be growing.
And I could go on listing “low-hanging fruit” like this forever…
In fact, in a moment, I’m going to preview for you my next 3 shadow stock recommendations poised to grow by 318%, 450%, and 600% – for starters – in the coming months.
When stocks tank, shadow stocks soar…
Now you may be asking yourself, “Why can’t I tap into a huge trend or global economic explosion by buying a regular stock?”
The answer is “good luck.” Most stocks simply don’t follow the larger, wealth-producing trends, while shadow stocks almost always do.
Take oil. When crude oil shot up a few years back, the stocks of the major oil companies underperformed.Exxon-Mobil is a good example. As you can see, the oil giant’s stock rose 242%... but the shadow stock vaulted to 396% – a difference of 154%.
The same thing happened with gold. While AngloGoldAshanti dropped 28%, one shadow stock tapped into gold’s meteoric rise and shot up 46% – a 74% difference.
As semiconductors rallied 42% in 2006, Micro Linear Corp crashed 70% – that’s a 112% positive difference in favor of the shadow stock.
When coal prices were heating up earlier this year, the coal combustion product manufacturer, Headwaters, cooled off 23% while one shadow stock beat it by a solid 44% – in just one month’s time.
And finally, on the day Kmart filed for the second-largest bankruptcy in U.S. history, one shadow stock was funneling the retail sector’s massive profits to investors with a respectable 34% gain.
These regular stocks were like “fool’s gold”…
Millions of investors saw these trends in oil, gold, semiconductors, coals and retail, and expected to capitalize on them on by buying the “logical stock.”
They were sorely disappointed.
They would have made 40%... 50%... 100%... 120% more by investing in the right shadow stocks instead, which followed these trends into the profit stratosphere.
And the reasons for these huge differences in performance are easy to see…
Macro trends and economies are driven by long-term structural forces that keep them moving in the same direction for years, even decades. Shadow stocks tap directly into these structural forces and the wealth they generate.
By contrast, regular stocks are buffeted by many other factors: Good and bad management decisions… supplier and customer relationships… analyst reports… market sentiment… the daily news and a host of other factors.
Thus, while an oil company’s stock price may go down if it digs a series of dry wells, oil will continue going up because of increasing scarcity and extreme global demand. A bad earnings report won’t change a thing.
The same point holds for the explosive growth in Asian economies. Cheaper labor, less regulation and pent-up consumer demand will keep these economies on a tear for decades to come, even if individual Asian companies go bankrupt.
Shadow stocks are the ONLY way to extract your lion’s share of profits from these large-scale global forces and money flows – without betting your future on regular stocks, options, or the risky commodity markets.
In fact, you’re GUARANTEED to buy the most profitable part of every single trend.
The only way to “follow the money” wherever it goes
And there’s one more thing you should know…
If your money is in the right place at the right time, all you have to do is wait for the tidal wave of global cash to fill your personal coffers.
Trouble is, it can be impossible to be in the right place with regular stocks. Or mutual funds. Or commodities. Or any number of other types of investments.
“Pick the lock” on government regulations
Government regulations often just shut you out.
U.S. government securities regulations can literally BAN you from investing in the next generation “General Motors,” “Microsofts” and “GEs” now shooting up in Asia like bamboo in a rainforest.
You see, like it or not, the world’s economic center of gravity is shifting away from the United States. Most of the world’s future blue chips aren’t listed on U.S. exchanges, and many don’t want to jump through the regulatory hoops put up by the U.S. government to get listed.
And that puts you, as a U.S. citizen, on the outside looking in. You’re prevented from “following the money” flowing to some of the hottest “destinations” in the world.
Our research uncovered the world’s largest contract-electronics manufacturer. It’s head and shoulders above all its U.S. and European rivals. It recently posted profits of $1.3 billion ($100 million more than projected). And it’s already halfway to the top of Fortune’s International 500 list.
Trouble is, you’re banned from buying this electronics giant by your own government’s regulations.
Of course, as we saw earlier with regulatory limits on oil trading, government regulations never stop the big boys from “following the money” and reaping gargantuan rewards.
But with my Shadow Stock Strategy, you can “pick the lock” on restrictive government regulations and gain access to huge amounts of wealth being generated all across the globe.
For example, you can head south to scoop up the wealth being created by Latin American companies…
Or head to India to “pick the lock” on the profits generated by the world’s most populous democracy…
Or go further east to Malaysia…
Then turn north into the heart of the Asian miracle to “pick the lock” on the profits in China’s $10.1 trillion economy.
In short, with my Shadow Stock Strategy guiding you, the world becomes your investing oyster. You can go anywhere the big money flows to get your share. You do it safely and simply. And your reward is decades of profits flowing from the trends, economies, technologies and companies driving up the world’s $66 trillion wealth by 5% a year.
And now I want to give you my next three recommendations…
You see, a few weeks ago, I was sharing tapas (Spanish appetizers) after work with my publisher, Mike Ward, and I told him everything I’ve just said to you here…
How I had developed my Shadow Stock Strategy privately over many years. How I used it to buy oil for 25¢ a barrel. How I shared it with a few regular investors of ordinary means. How the same strategy had produced reliable double-, triple-, and quadruple-digit gains – on plays that were still growing – without any need for options, commodity plays, or anything fancy or risky.
When I was done, Mike put down his glass of wine and said to me,
“Horacio, you can’t keep this to yourself and just a few friends. You need to share it with the people who need it. Folks planning for retirement in this volatile, global market would “kill” for this. You need to start a new service devoted entirely to this strategy. Now.”
Mike’s one of the smartest guys I know, so I got to work. And that’s how The Shadow Stock Trader was born. And why I’m writing you today.
The Shadow Stock Trader is my newest service, and it’s devoted entirely to showing you how you could make consistent double, triple, and quadruple gains like the ones I’ve shown you here using shadow stocks.
As I’ve said repeatedly in this letter, no options, no commodities and no complex, risky, or “hair trigger” plays demanding constant attention are required to make good money in this global economy using this strategy.
Just the right shadow stocks… and that’s what I give you.
As Mike suggested, The Shadow Stock Trader is for anyone who wants the opportunity to make serious, but safe, profits on the biggest, most profitable trends in the world. And it will address the special needs of people facing retirement (or there already) who need big solid gains over the next 3 to 10 years.
Naturally, I’m very excited about the recommendations I’ve lined up for this service…
Some of the plays may even surprise you…
But once you understand how my Shadow Stock Strategy works… and why I’m making these recommendations... I’m confident you’ll be as excited as I am.
In fact, if you join me now, I’ll send you my next three “picks” certain to hand investors 318%... 450%... and 603% gains... just for starters. Here’s the first one…
Shadow Stock #1
Nobody’s talking about this investment. And that’s good news for us – because analysts WILL be covering it in short order.
You see, this economy has it “all” for investors. When you consider that last year its stock market gave investors a 28% return while the S&P 500 returned 3.5%, the NASDAQ 9.8% and the Dow an anemic 6.4%, investing in this economy is a “no-brainer” for U.S. investors. Just investing in the “pure vanilla” stock market index would give you a handsome 18% to 25% edge.
You’re investing in Asia.
You’re diversifying out of the dollar.
You’re investing in a highly developed economy and financial system with strong ties to the United States and the developed world.
And you’re investing in an economy that exports some of the most in-demand commodities in the world: Oil, coal and uranium to feed China’s voracious appetite… iron ore for Japan… and wheat and corn for the world at prices that are increasingly “out of this world.”
The minerals and mining industry is so hot, companies are stealing employees from each other. A man I met in St. Petersburg left his job at a correctional facility to work in a mine. Why? Because he could make more in four years than he could make in 20 years at his old job.
As you might imagine, unemployment is almost non-existent. It recently dropped to 4%.
Even in the face of the spreading “credit crunch,” this foreign economy is growing at a pace that’s already 48% over last year. The Reserve Bank has actually had to raise interest rates to cool things off!Despite all this good news, it’s hard for a U.S. investor to know how to take advantage of this situation. That’s where my Shadow Stock #1 comes into play. It cuts your risks and eliminates uncertainty while leaving all your upside potential there for the taking.
How to get this triple-digit gainer now…
All you have to do to get this 318% “pick” is… try my new research service, The Shadow Stock Trader.
I’ll rush full details on this triple-digit recommendation immediately in your very first email notice, which you’ll get within 48 hours.
I’ll also rush you my report, “Shadow Stock Investing: Double-, Triple-, and Quadruple-Digit Profits Without Options” to give you a good working knowledge of my strategy.
Then, once a week, I’ll send you a new email notice with market updates, analysis and new recommendations…
Each recommendation will be carefully selected for maximum gain and safety based on my Shadow Stock Strategy. And I’ll explain in detail the timing and reasons for making the recommendation.
Between recommendations, you’ll receive regular email updates on the portfolio. Should there be a need to close any of the positions, I’ll zap you a notice in plenty of time to protect your profits.
Compared to many services, a Shadow Stock portfolio will be relatively low maintenance with low volatility. Instead of a roller coaster ride, expect a steady piling up of triple-digit gains with each recommendation. Like my second one…
Shadow Stock #2
Many have worried that U.S. economic troubles will bury the economies of “emerging markets” – but exactly the opposite is taking place.
China barely noticed the U.S. “credit crunch” and grew at 10.6% in the first quarter of 2008. Brazil is sitting on oil and natural gas reserves equal to the largest fields in the Middle East (one the size of France), and barreling along at 4.5% growth per year. Add in Russia and India growing at 8% and 7% respectively, and you have a global economy on fire.
But the real story is the “global consumer boom,” driven by what the renowned McKinsey and Co. call “financial deepening.” Before, emerging economies were buffeted by boom and bust cycles. Credit for large items was virtually non-existent. Strong fiscal discipline and economic performance have turned this around.
Billions of consumers who went decades without homes, cars, or consumer goods now can’t wait to buy their own piece of the good life. And they have no debt!
In Brazil alone, loan portfolios have increased 20%. India’s Tata Motors plans to sell one million new Nanos (the $2,500 car) to Indians tired of pedaling bicycles or riding three to a motorbike. And McKinsey expects “a five-fold increase in urban consumer spending [in China] to $2.3 trillion” in the coming years.
The world’s emerging markets are a veritable feast for the investor.
But the question is: Where do you start? Which country or region? Which companies should you invest in? So many opportunities out there… and so many minefields, too. Pick the wrong stock from among thousands and you lose big time.
My Shadow Stock #2 eliminates the uncertainty and worry. It’s the smartest way to get your piece of “the world’s profits” with huge upside growth… and near bulletproof downside protection.
Shadow Stock #3
The smartest way to make money in the market is to do what everyone else is doing… but BEFORE they do it. Then, when the cash floods in, your “boat” rises faster than anyone else’s.
Put it this way: The smart money is always the early money. Late money always leaves profits on the table.
That’s why, right now, I’m making my third shadow stock recommendation in an arena that’s been beaten down and left for dead.
… for now.
The “inside story” most investors don’t know yet is this:
Losses in this industry have been made excessively steep on purpose out of fear of running afoul of Sarbanes-Oxley. The top brass wasn’t taking any chances on going to jail. So they “over estimated” their losses to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.
But the hedge funds, private equity firms and investment banks know better. They’re flush with cash and clamoring to buy this artificially depreciated sector.
And when they do… excessive “losses” will turn into excessive gains overnight.
Of course, you still have to enter this sector carefully – and that’s why my Shadow Stock recommendation is such a bargain: Huge upside this year alone, but with highly calibrated risk reduction. Longer term, it will be minting money.
So, if you’re ready to get started…
