Featuring Mike Stathis, Our Chief Investment Strategist & Trading Analyst
As Well as the World's Top Investment Analyst and Market Forecaster
FACT: Mike Stathis is the World's Best Stock Market Forecaster, Securities Analyst, Commodities Trading Analyst and Precious Metals Trading Analyst.
We Are the Only Research Firm to Back Our Claims by $1 Million
Mike Stathis is the ONLY Person in the World Who Truly Predicted the Financial Crisis. We are willing to debate any credible expert or anyone from the media on this claim. We back this claim by a $50,000 guarantee. Contact us for eligibility and guidelines.
Mike Stathis was the only person who forecast the bottom in both the US real estate AND stock market, and did so years before these markets collapsed.
Mike Stathis was the ONLY person in the world to recommend in a book that investors should short subprime mortgage stocks in addition to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac two years before the financial crisis.
Mike Stathis is the only person in the world who predicted the financial crisis and turned bullish at the EXACT market bottom, enabling his clients to make HUGE gains.
Mike is also the World's Leading Source exposing fraud, charlatans, & media manipulation
In May 2008, he wrote his first article since his 2006 book where he advised investors to get out of the stock market, buy oil, gold and short the financials. See here.
Soon after, the stock market collapsed, the financials collapsed, while oil and gold soared.
Mike Stathis was the ONLY person in the world to expose Bank of America's buyout of Merrill Lynch
in the fall of 2008 as a hidden bailout just days after the deal was announced. See here.
Mike was the ONLY person that predicted the stock market bottom even before it began its decline when he wrote the possibility of a collapse in the Dow to 6500 in his 2006 book America's Financial Apocalypse.
On March 9, 2009 with the Dow at 6500, Mike issued his first market buy recommendation since warning investors of the collapse. Only later would investors realize the 6500 mark was the bottom. See here.
Stathis also detailed how free trade was destroying American jobs and living standards in his 2006 book, America's Financial Apocalypse.
Ten years later, the White House would use this book as a reference on US trade policy.
Mike was the ONLY person to predict that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would be bailed out by taxpayers. He made these forecasts in his 2006 banned book America's Financial Apocalypse.
He even instructed investors HOW and WHEN to short Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in addition to the subprimes, banks and homebuilders in his 2007 book. No one else made these recommendations which led to astounding profits. Yet, he remains banned while Jewish cons are promoted as experts.
Mike Stathis was the only person to expose the fraud behind the seizure of Washington Mutual by the OTC. See here for his complaint to the SEC.
Not long after he filed the report the OTC implicated Mike in white powder mailings to the Federal Reserve.
He was interrogated by the federal agents which caused him to delay release of the report by a year.
In 2010 Mike was contacted by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.
Once Mike told investigators why the crisis happened the FCIC dropped him from testifying.
All of this, yet Mike was completely black-balled by ALL MEDIA. Ask yourself why.
And then consider who the media promotes as "experts." Are you starting to see how things work?

Do you want to know when the next recession or bear market is likely to appear?
Mike Stathis is the world's most qualified and credible person to answer this.
The Jewish-run media industry seeks to deceive and defraud its audience while protecting Jewish Wall Street and Hollywood cons and perverts. That means you'll never get the truth from the media. And you'll never get accurate investment insight. Just look at the Jewish clowns and con artists positioned as experts in the media.
What do you get when you combine Porter Stansberry, David Morgan and Daniela Cambone, with a cheap car and YouTube? You get the typical gold-pumping, fear-mongering fake news disinfo horse shit spewed by a overweight and bloated Jewish con man, interviewed by a she male-looking Jewish faux reporter, published on a Jewish-run criminal organization by an infamous Jewish fraudster. To me, it looks like a typical Jewish media wedding. And we all know what that means. Lies, BS, and fake news. Note: I do not recommend wasting your time watching the full video unless: 1) You were already planning to waste your time watching trash TV, or 2) You plan to take a long dump and you're hoping that laughter will help you defecate more rapidly. If you really want to laugh your ass off, read the comment section. There you will see praise from the mentally ill/low IQ gold-pumping cult members.
Throughout the years Mike has enabled his research clients to make unbelievable gains on his recommended stocks. And if you ask his clients, I'm certain they will tell you that they've learned more about investing from him than anyone else. This includes his professional investors. Mike knows how to spot future market leaders early on. This is not an easy thing to do. Not many professionals are even able to achieve this feat.
Are you wasting your time consuming copious amounts of financial media thinking you're obtaining valuable insight and maybe even a competitive edge? Unless you've been following Mike Stathis, you probably are because he is the only person in the world to have exposed the deceitful and often criminal nature of financial media. The fact is that if you're paying attention to the media you're not going to gain any valuable insight. If you think otherwise, it's probably because you know so little about investing that you've set the hurdle low for yourself without even realizing it. Having worked as a financial professional for over two decades, including my early years spent at major Wall Street firms as a merchant banker, financial adviser, adviser to financial institutions, hedge funds, private equity funds, mutual funds, corporate treasury departments, and venture capital firms, you might want to listen carefully to what I have to say about investing. The problem is that investing is a competitive game whereby you need to know more and be better than other investors or you will be slaughtered. And you certainly will never gain a competitive advantage by consuming financial media. In fact, it's much more likely for the opposite to happen because media (and especially financial media) is designed to exploit the audience. That means you will become a sheep if you pay attention to financial media. If you aren't able to gain some type of competitive advantage over other investors you're never going to do well in the investment world. Investors who have access to our research are provided with a sustainable competitive advantage because they have access to the insights of Mike Stathis. His insights and results back this claim. In the best of situations, obtaining valuable insight from the media is only possible if you already know what's going on. And if you already know what's going on, then you don't need to waste your time with financial media to tell you what you already know, right? Remember that time is limited, so you need to spend your time wisely. In the worst of situations the financial media is likely to confuse and mislead you. And this will most likely cause you to make countless mistakes and lose loads of money. Perhaps the worst thing about this result is that you aren't likely to even know why you made the decisions you made, so you will continue repeating the same mistakes.
The following excerpt was taken from the "Prelude to the November 2019 Market Forecasting Research" presentation. This is just one of many excerpts from the research showing why Mike is the very best. You simply aren't going to find this level of insight and and analysis elsewhere. Oh and by the way, have you bothered to examine his track record of forecasts? It is THE very best in the world. For many years we backed this factual claim by large sums of money reaching as high as $1 million. Yet, not a single person has ever challenged this claim; not any fund managers, analysts or anyone else. Ask yourself why no one else is willing to back their claims with large sums of money. The reason is simple. Because most people marketing investment and trading services make false claims. But they don't want to be held liable by backing these claims with large sums of money. In short, you should assume than anyone who makes any claims regarding anything having to do with the investment world is lying (which means they are committing fraud) unless they back their claims with large sums of money to be forfeited upon successful challenge by a third party.

By now if you're reading this then you probably already realize I, Mike Stathis hold not only the leading track record on the economic collapse, but also the leading investment forecasting track record since 2006. And I have even backed these claims with a $1 million guarantee to the first person who could prove this not to be the case. See here. I believe it's quite noteworthy to understand that no one else in the world has ever backed claims like this with any type of monetary guarantee. Ask yourself why I continue to be banned by ALL MEDIA (including the so-called "alternative media" which is a bigger joke than the "mainstream media"). Once you come to truly understand why I have been banned, you will then realize how the game is played by ALL MEDIA to lie, con and distract you. All ad-based content is a complete scam designed to get you to play the patsy by creating demand for content that's linked to ads. And the content ranges from slanted to complete bull shit. The fact is that if you're paying attention to any media, you're being lied to, deceived, distracted and conned. I'm not going to write much here because the video below is quite long and self-explanatory. In essence, I claim that my 2006 landmark book, America's Financial Apocalypse as the best investment-related book ever written based on the detail, scope and accuracy of the predictions, the complexity and accuracy of insights, and the number of problems that have since come to the forefront some 12 years later. This claim will be proven by publishing some excerpts from this landmark book first published in 2006. I know of no other investment-related book ever been written that comes close to the measuring stick I have defined here. Yet, the book was barred by the publishing industry. And I have since been black-balled by all media (including so-called "alternative media). Hence, very few people have read the book. Some who may have read the book might have been unable to fully interpret the full relevance of the material in a comprehensive manner due to confirmation bias after having been indoctrinated from the intake of years of nonsense from the media's so-called "experts," all of which have continued to be wrong, none of which has any real credibility, some of which have been involved in fraud, all of which are only experts in sales and marketing. Even after watching or even studying the video below, I am quite confident that some who are not so familiar with me or my work will still be unable to understand the relevance of this book. Consequently, this merely points to the sad state of the intelligence level of the masses. In short, if you ever find anyone who has read the original extended version of America's Financial Apocalypse (2006) but does not speak of it with nothing but the utmost praise, you can be assured that you have run across an individual who is clueless about investments, suffers from some form of mental illness, cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias, or some other disruptive mental process which stands in the way of objective thinking. As a final note, I have recently confirmed my suspicions that certain members of the Trump administration have in fact used the book as a reference for issues pertaining to US trade policy. Once you read the excerpts from the book (in the video below) you will realize that it's very possible (if not highly likely) that Trump obtained many of his talking points from the book. Remember folks. The media is a criminal organization that seeks to screw its audience by delivering deceptive content designed to please its financial sponsors (i.e. advertisers). I have proven this over and over in hundreds of articles, videos and audios for more than a decade. But when serious individuals including industry leading professionals want world-class insights and research they come to me. Do you really think serious professionals seek out the clowns in the media who are promoted as experts? Even the most credible Wall Street firms come up short when stacked against my track record. This might explain why some of our research clients are from Wall Street.
Mike Stathis has been accurately forecasting stock market tops and bottoms ever since he predicted the Dow would collapse to 6500 year years before it happened. And when it did happen, he advised investors to begin buying for the first time since he advised them to sell stocks back in October 2007. Once again, Mike Stathis predicted the market top and bottom in the April and May research (Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster). He advised subscribers to sell stocks at a period that would later turn out to be the top. And in advance he told them when they should reenter the market. This recommendation turned out to be the bottom of the market selloff in late May 2019.
UPDATED on May 11, 2019 A couple of years ago we pointed out that subscribers to the Intelligent Investor had been advised to own shares of Nvidia (NVDA) several years ago when it was under $15. Mr. Stathis continued to recommend NVDA ever since he first added the stock to the Intelligent Investor recommended list back in 2009. Prior to the time when NVDA soared a couple of years ago, very few investors even knew about the company. NVDA eventually soared to a high of just under $300 per share before breaking down. Incidentally, we advised investors to watch for the breakdown in the research publications. Today, we want to highlight another big winner from the Intelligent Investor recommended list, QualComm (QCOM). Now for the detailed chart showing you all of the recommendations made by Mike in the securities portion of the Intelligent Investor since September 2018. The list of winning stocks Mr. Stathis has recommended for his research clients is quite large, ranging from predicting several stocks that would eventually file for bankruptcy, to recommending stocks for the long haul like Netflix (NFLX) which he first recommended at $3 per share back in 2008. But perhaps the most remarkable thing about his research is that he has a very high accuracy rate when guiding investors into and out of volatile stocks like NFLX, QCOM, NVDA and others. At the end of the day, this multiplies the total returns to an even greater degree. Do yourself a favor and spend sufficient time examining his research track record on this site. Once you do, you'll understand why he issued a $1 million guarantee backing the claim that he holds the leading investment forecasting track record since 2006. Professional fund managers already know that Mr. Stathis is atop in his field which is why they line up for his research.

Keep listening to the con men and idiots in the media and you will keep losing money and missing out on tremendous gains. Keep listening to the perma-bulls and you will get stuck in the market when it collapses. Keep listening to the perma-bears and you will never get in the stock market. Either way, if you pay attention to the idiots positioned as "experts" by the media, you will keep getting owned.

America’s Financial Apocalypse remains as the most accurate, comprehensive and insightful book predicting a depression for the U.S. even nearly 8 years after it was first published.

Mike Stathis has gone on record now for several years claiming that Warren Buffett has been irrelevant as an investor for the past 20 years. He has also stated that Buffett has been close to a disaster over the past few years. The facts are on Stathis' side.
There's really nothing else that needs to be said that the figure hasn't already said. Fact is, Mike recommended ROKU as a momentum buy on February 7 to subscribers of the Intelligent Investor. In just three months it's up by nearly 100%. This is just one reason why our rates will continue to rise. The other reason is that our rates are currently very underpriced. Ask yourself how much should the world's best investment mind charge for his research. The price has virtually no ceiling.
As the rumors of Sears' (SHLD) announcement of bankruptcy proceedings build, it's a good time to reflect on the past. Below is a blast from the past whereby Mike Stathis not only predicted an eventual bankruptcy for Sears years in advance, he actually "guaranteed" it would happen. Those of you who have been following Mr. Stathis for some time probably also recall that he made the same guarantee regarding RadioShack (RSH) several years before it's bankrutcy. He's also gone on record as early as 2011 predicting bankruptcy for JC Penny (JCP) during a time when "genius" fund managers such as George Soros, Bill Ackman and Kyle Bass were stockpiling millions of shares. According to Mr. Stathis "Only a fool would have bought Sears, RadioShack or JCPenny anytime after 2003 when it became apparent these companies weren't going to make it without a miracle."
Did you make at least 70% shorting JC Penny (JCP) like our clients did? What about SUPERVALU (SVU)? Did you lock in 400% on Bon Ton (BONT)? Did you nail 50% shorting Mako Surgical (MAKO) all the way down like our clients? Did you lock in 300% in Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA) like we did before it went to the moon? Those who had access to a special video series created by Mike Stathis did.
Now that Trump's so-called "tax reform" has passed, I wanted to discuss the myths that have been spread in order to justify what is in reality an unproductive tax cut for corporations and the wealthiest Americans. For several years now the claim has been made that US corporations pay the highest tax rate in the world. Although many who have made this claim are simply ignorant puppets who repeat what they have been told, others know they are intentionally deceiving the public. I'll refer to this latter group as corporate shills. Shills hold a prominent position in America's criminal media machine, either as reporters or as guests (often referred to as "experts" by the media). Quite simply these shills serve as PR agents for America's corporate fascist economic system. Sadly, many Americans actually believe these shills are making factual statements and speaking the truth. As a result, most have accepted their countless deceptive and inaccurate claims without bothering to verify them. Every time these shills find an opportunity to beef up the corporate state in the name of "free market capitalism" they spread more lies in order to sufficiently brainwash the working class into "digging their own graves" so to speak, by getting them to support the very policies that bolster corporate interests at the expense of their own living standards. The same basic strategy has been utilized in order to convince most Americans the notion that "universal healthcare is a terrible idea" because it would "reduce the quality of medical care"...and that the "war on terrorism is real and necessary in order to "preserve and protect our way of life." The list of ridiculous narratives disseminated by these shills is quite lengthy as you can imagine. Regardless which of the countless lies we are talking about, they all have one thing in common. They are always linked to scare tactics because Washington uses fear and panic in order to justify its actions. At the end of the day, not even the most sophisticated tactics will be effective unless the shills have enough suckers who will believe their propaganda. Unfortunately, most Americans are easily duped when presented with superficial data due to their inability to think clearly. As I have previously discussed, many people have lost the ability to think clearly due to the takeover of their mind by various forms of media brainwashing as well as mind control tactics via the education system, the social system (i.e. implicit rules of thought and behavior as shaped by authority figures) and pressure in the workplace (such as political correctness and the need to be a good "corporate citizen" in order to advance in your career). Thus, when they see a chart seems to illustrate that US corporations pay the highest tax rate in the world, they believe it without digging deeper. For instance, most Americans don't bother to ask whether this tax rate is the final mean tax rate once all deductions and tax credits have been applied, or to what extent US corporations provide tax revenues relative to economic growth, nor do they bother to ask to what extent are corporations contributing tax revenues to the government compared to individual tax payers. These important considerations along with supporting data are shown later. It is by no coincidence that George Mason University has been cited in the above chart, as this third-rate university's Mercatus Center is largely funded by the Koch brothers and other so-called "libertarian" charlatans who have fooled many working class Americans to support corporate fascism, outsourcing and lower corporate taxes at the expense of American jobs, lower wages and higher individual tax rates. Various corporate shills plastered throughout the media have claimed that Trump's "tax reform" will lead to more US jobs and stronger economic growth. They claim that the supposedly "high" US corporate tax rate is partly responsible for America's self-destructive outsourcing trend (they don't specifically use words like "outsourcing" because they do not want to remind Americans about this form of economic treason). Thus, they claim that lowering the corporate tax rate would enable US corporations to invest more into US operations and therefore create "more US-based jobs." As you shall soon see, the US corporate tax rate is not nearly as high as reported. And by some measures it has actually been in decline for many decades. Moreover, this so-called "high" corporate tax rate has had nothing to do with corporate America's destructive outsourcing trend which has resulted in the loss of millions of good jobs. This...
Professional gold-pumping doom and gloom marketers like Doug Casey (and his monkeys), Stefan Molyneux, Jeff Berwick, Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Jim Rogers, John Williams, Harry Dent, Gerald Celente, David Stockman, Paul Craig Roberts, Lawrence Kotlikoff, Eric Sprott, Rick Rule, Jim Rickards, Robert Kiyosaki, James Turk, John Rubino, John Mauldin, Bill Fleckenstein, Mike Maloney, Alex Jones, Max Keiser, Ron Paul and hundreds of others (remember, birds of a feather always flock together) have many ways to get you to part with your hard-earned cash.

Ron Paul: Tool of Controlled Opposition and Gold Pumping Clown To reinforce this sham they have created the so-called "freedom and liberty movement." I have previously exposed that the so-called libertarian movement is merely a front for corporate fascism on steroids. In fact, I view the various so-called "freedom and liberty" movements as platforms for scam artists. So who are these scam artists?

After monitoring Jim Rogers’ media appearances for several years, I’ve noticed a very disturbing trend. Once the media monkey conducting the interview has told the audience how great of an investor he is, Rogers is usually asked about the economy and the capital markets to which he most often responds with a predictable rant consisting primarily of hyperbole and more often than not, complete nonsense. Once Rogers has finished delivering his predictable narrative, the media monkey typically asks him to discuss what he considers lucrative investment opportunities to which he invariably recommends commodities and foreign currencies. I'll get to Rogers' hidden agendas with regards to these persistent recommendations later. Right now I want to focus on risk aspect of these recommendations because a full consideration of risk is the most important component of the investment process. It's also the most neglected component of discussions on investments in the media. Aside from the fact that commodities and foreign currencies are very risky, there's virtually no practical way to invest in them without trading futures contracts. And doing so introduces an additional layer of risk most investors are unaware of. As well, trading these risky assets requires a rather high minimal level of trading expertise. Yes, that's right. Commodities and foreign currency "investing" is quite risky. The risk comes from the fact that you must trade the futures contracts, as well as the fact that you are no truly investing. It's pure speculation. If you don't believe me you can check with the Securities & Exchange Commission. Although these and many other recommendations made by Rogers are neither feasible nor prudent for most investors, a much bigger problem is that his predictions are wrong the vast majority of time. Hence, even if Rogers' recommendations were logical, feasible and prudent, you’re likely to get blasted apart if you do as he suggests. Remember, if you're going to follow anyone you should follow a leader, not a broken clock loser. The biggest challenge for most investors is making an accurate determination as to who the real leaders are and who the losers are. The media is constantly going out of its way to convince you they interview and discuss investment and business leaders. This is specifically why the media always harps on about what a great investor Rogers is, without ever showing any real evidence of this claim. If the media says it's true then it has to be, right? It should be obvious that the media has a financial interest in making exaggerated and even false claims about individuals it positions as experts. And because the media cannot get into legal trouble for lying or making up stories, you should understand that at least when it comes to financial media, most of the content is similar to a Hollywood production. It's largely fiction. Hence, it's not only useless content, it is also potentially very dangerous to your financial well-being. And if you think you're smart enough to figure out the small percentage of content that's valid out of all of the trash that's produced, I'm willing to bet that you're going to get it wrong. One thing is for certain. If they're constantly being paraded in the media they 're the losers. That leads me to this natural conclusion. If one were to assess Rogers' investment insight based on various topics he discusses during his media appearances, it would appear as if he has no idea what's going on. Rather than aiding investors by focusing on prudent aspects of the investment process, Rogers usually centers his discussion on commodities (specifically agriculture), foreign currencies and precious metals. Again, let me emphasize the fact that commodities and foreign currency "investing" are considered quite risky, and hence not suitable for most investors. If you have never heard this from the media (and I'm willing to bet that you haven't) it's further evidence of just how useless the media is. But what about precious metals? Some might argue that precious metals "investing" isn't considered risky. However I disagree and would respond by stating that it really depends on the means by which precious metals are used in the investment process. I argue that the context by which Rogers recommends precious metals "investing" makes it a very risky proposition for a variety of reasons. For instance, Rogers recommends gold and silver only after he has ranted about all kinds of doom nonsense. Hence, Rogers introduces fear into the picture and then follows up with his "investment solutions" to escape or profit from the fear and doom scenarios that he created with his nonsense. This is a very common tactic utilized by con men. Additionally, Rogers never points to investing in precious metals ETFs, which is a great way to avoid high transaction and storage costs that come with buying physical precious metals. As well, the low commissions and liquid nature of precious metals ETFs make it feasible to trade the price volatility. You cannot do that with physical precious metals. And as I've pointed out over and over beginning in America's Financial Apocalypse, if you're not trading the price volatility in gold and silver, you're really missing large potential gains. Trading precious metals ETFs also enables you to reduce risk and increase liquidity. Oddly enough, despite claiming to be some kind of "commodities expert" Rogers doesn't even recommend investors trade gold and silver futures contracts. Instead he recommends investors buy physical gold and silver and simply hold it. Although trading gold and silver futures contracts is a speculative strategy, it's arguably more prudent than buying physical gold and silver and holding it, depending on the individual. In fact, Rogers has gone on record many times in the past as recommending to "never sell your gold and silver." This feeds into the doomsday dogma preached by Rogers and his fellow gold pumping charlatans. No one lives forever. So if you keep making the excuse that the "crash is coming eventually" you're probably going to lose your ass if you make investment decisions based on some hypothetical crash which is touted year after year by an army of shysters. Now let's talk about Rogers' hidden agendas.
Can Anyone Match Stathis' Track Record and Insights? The answer to that question is a definitive NO. Mike Stathis is the top investment mind in the world. And we stand by that claim. See here for some evidence. Moreover, we are willing to back this claim by a $1 million guarantee.
This article was originally written in 2010 as a followup to the material I first wrote about in my banned 2006 book, America's Financial Apocalypse. This book was not only the ONLY book in the world to have accuractely forecast nearly every major event related to the blow up of the real estate bubble and stock market, but also detailed numerous wide ranging topics that promised to adversely impact the US if not corrected, including the nation's healthcare system, soaring college costs, pension underfundedness, Social Security, illegal immigration, and of course, US trade policy. America’s former greatness was created by the hard work of struggling immigrants, who earned their right to become U.S. citizens. They did not ask for nor receive handouts. And they certainly didn't have the audacity to protest against federal immigration law. They did not cheat the system. Most came to the United States with little money or formal education. Many came without fluency of the English language. But they worked hard to overcome barriers. They fought wars for this nation. They built this nation. They sacrificed many things for the chance that their children could live the American Dream.
This investigation and work required to write the 90-page publication below (only the introduction is available to the general public) took several years of hard work.

Membership Resources ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The following is an introduction to this 90-page ebook exposing the Zero Hedge liars and scam artists. If for some reason you become bored and have nothing better to do and you want to laugh your ass off, you might consider visiting one or more of the virtually endless websites that preach borderline insane claims about how everything is fake, controlled, doomed, etc. Don't laugh because this type of mental illness is growing by the day. And we shouldn't laugh at those afflicted with mental illness. Fortunately for those interested in seeing how these deranged, low-IQ, conspiracy cult members interact, there are several options aside from visiting Alex Jones' Infowars or Prison Planet websites which provide an equally hilarious rendition of reality (see here, here, here and here). For instance, simply spend some time on the BLOG (emphasis on "blog") Zero Hedge and you'll see exactly what I mean; that is, unless you're one of the delusional lunatics who spends much of their day patrolling though hundreds of gold pumping, conspiracy, end of the world websites which (in part) comprise the gold-pumping doomsday crime syndicate. Indeed, if you'd like to compile a list of doomsday con artists and broken clock losers, Zero Hedge is a good place to start. Simply check the contributor list. You should also take note which delusional fear-mongering broken clock Jews the blog promotes each day. They all have incredibly terrible track records because they are broken clock salesmen pretending to be investment analysts. In the past I have discussed the fact that Zero Hedge is a gold-pumping blog that publishes complete nonsense, baseless conspiracies and delusional conclusions (see here and here). The apparent intent of the blog is to profit (in the form or advertising revenues) from their misinformed and largely mentally ill audience that spends most of their time reading about conspiracies on infowars.com and other scam websites. What's more alarming is that the kosher media (i.e. both mainstream and alternative) cites this trash even though the authors remain anonymous. Furthermore, they have no track record, no credibility, and constantly create conspiracies all while predicting recessions and stock market collapses that never materialize. Ask yourself why the media would cite anonymous sources that publish baseless conspiracies when at least one of the contributors has been alleged to have been barred from Wall Street for securities fraud (which could explain why he remains anonymous) the blog has been caught engaging in plagiarism, and not a single contributor to the blog has an ounce of credibility. In fact, the blog publishes and promotes fake news in the spirit of Alex Jones and other con artists who make a living feeding the insatiable appetites of mentally deranged conspiracy fanatics. Allow me to answer for you. The media (both mainstream and alternative) is controlled by the Jewish mafia. And those who understand Jewish group behavior realize that these people have a long history of ganging up against gentiles in order to lie, cheat, steal and defraud them. Anyone who is unaware of this fact simply lacks an accurate picture of history. Jewish people perfected the "buddy system" concept when it comes to engaging in deceit. A good example of this can be seen by examining Zero Hedge's blog roll, as well as the blog roll of each blog listed on Zero Hedge's blog roll and you will notice a perpetual loop of idiots, con artists, doomsday pornography junkies, gold pumpers, broken clocks and faux heroes. At the end of the day, like all content that is ad-based, the Zero Hedge's only goal appears to be focused on convincing its sheep followers that it provides credible information in order to sell ads. As such, it appeals to the pseudo-freedom and liberty crowd, otherwise known as "libertarians." Many of the truly in-the-know refer to this crowd as the "supreme suckers." I like to refer to the followers of libertarian leaders as stooges of corporate fascism. The Libertarian leadership itself consists of Jewish con artists who seek to empower mega corporations at the expense of American workers and consumers. At the end of the day, Zero Hedge is your typical kosher media scam. For those who truly understand the ramifications of that statement, nothing more needs to be added. For others who are unable to decipher the full meaning of that statement, you have much to learn. Does it make any sense that major media firms would promote a BLOG where the contributors are afraid to reveal who they are? Does it make any sense that major media firms would cite hearsay from a blog, especially when the blog had no credible experts associated with it? It all makes perfect sense if you truly understand how the Jewish Mafia operates. Only a complete fool would pay attention to anyone who does not reveal who they are. Unfortunately there are many fools in the world today. In this report, I present the findings of a multi-year effort to uncover Zero Hedge. By the time you are finished reading this report, you are going to realize that Zero Hedge is a Jewish-run gold-pumping blog that publishes complete nonsense, baseless conspiracies and delusional conclusions, while exploiting its sheep audience. In short, Zero Hedge is an online version of Alex Jones' Infowars. Both are Fake News. In this detailed article, I intend to prove all of these claims and much more. In short, am going to provide the reader with an unprecedented analysis of this fake news blog with the hopes that you will be able to use this detailed example as a starting point to spot other media scams. You're also going to see how Zero Hedge serves as one of the pivot role in what I have previously identified as the gold-pumping crime syndicate. Finally, I will also show compelling evidence of what I have known for several years; namely that the liars, idiots and con artists behind Zero Hedge know well who I am and understand that my track record is untouchable. And given that I am an acclaimed research analyst with no agendas, and given my commitment to uncover fraud and expose con artists (especially within the financial industry and financial media) as you shall soon see, Zero Hedge has intentionally ignored mention of me and my work as a way to keep the gold crowd in the dark. A typical follower of Zero Hedge, Alex Jones, Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, Doug Casey and other disinfo sources speaks in the video below. This kid fails to realize how foolish he is so he posts videos on You Tube, never aware that people are laughing at him. There are millions of others that have put themselves in a similar predicament. Does this kid above have mental and/or emotional issues? I'm willing to bet on it. Do the followers of Peter Schiff, Alex Jones, Max Keiser/Ron Paul, Doug Casey Jeff Rense and Zero Hedge have mental and/or emotional issues? Probably. In the very least, they're fucking STUPID. Below is a short preview of the email exchange from 2012 (approximately) between an individual who emailed Zero Hedge and they Jewish coward and liar who goes by the name "Tyler Durden." Notice how "Durden" evades the issues and basically says "pay us and we will interview Stathis. Meanwhile, the Zero Hedge blog roll looks like a Who's Who of idiots, many of which charge for content. Email to “Tyler Durden” from (name withheld) "The fact that you guys are always promoting con artists with no credibility (the list is too long to post here, not to mention your blog roll, which is filled with amateurs and more gold shills) and terrible track records, while not one mention of the leading expert in the world on the collapse, Mike Stathis of AVA Investment Analytics and author of the 2006 book that predicted this depression, proves that you guys are gold shills and con artists." From: Tyler Durden <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: RE: Hot Tip "Here’s the thing. Neither we, nor the people we “promote”, charge for their content. The “leading expert” does. As such, us promoting him would be equivalent to advertising. Certainly if Mr. Stathis wishes to advertise on Zero Hedge he is welcome to do so. He should promptly send an email to email@example.com We look forward to doing business with him. That is of course if Mr Stathis wishes to be promoted by 'gold shills and con artists'” NOTE: Zero Hedge does in fact promote numerous clowns who charge for content such as Harry Dent, Marc Faber, Chris Martenson, Doug Casey and several others. In addition, we provided all of our content at no charge for many years, yet Zeron Hedge was not interested in publishing it. Finally, don't you think a website that claims to present news would at least make mention of my amazing track record and perhaps seek to interview me? Zero Hedge is a typical kosher scam. Reply from (name withheld) "Thanks for your response, but actually, that's not exactly true. I've followed him for a good while now and he started restricting Some of his articles only because he has been banned everywhere. He only started restricting some content a few months ago. Also, there are two ways to charge people for content. The most misleading way thats always attached with motives is to give it away and sell advertisements on the site. Stathis has 0 ads. AVA is a investment research firm. Content is their means of business. The second way is to charge for content if it's valuable enough that people will pay for it. Stathis' content is the later. If you host ads, your content is ultimately dictated by advertisers. At my investment firm, we give away our research using it as a bonus because it's usually useless. We make money selling asset management and trading services. Also, I've seen you talk about or interview guys who charge crazy prices for their "content/subscriptions" and they arent even pros or have a real record of excellence. And I've seen you guys on ZH mention fund managers who missed the collapse. So the question is, given his record, it seems odd that there has never been mention of Stathis, his accurate forecasts or his spectacularlt detailed book packed with accurate predictions, or even an interview. But I've seen you guys interview some real used car salesmen. Could it be because you guys are gold pumpers and only want gold pumpers around? I bet that racks up the gold ad bucks."

A few years ago, we pointed out that the Recommended Securities List created and managed by MIke Stathis, the chief strategist and analyst of AVA Investment Analytics, included the best performing stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The stock was McDonalds (MCD). And it returned 31% in 2011. Since then, Mike has successfully navigated research clients in and out of MCD, enabling significant reductions in the total cost basis of the stock. Did You Own the BEST PERFORMING Stock in 2011? WE DID Ever since we have been publishing our Recommended Securities Lists, in addition to the accurate active management guidance contained in the research, numerous securities have provided bonus returns for subscribers after having been bought out. Just a couple examples have been listed below. Warren Buffett Follows Our Lead on Heinz Dividend Gems Subscribers Treated to ANOTHER HUGE BUYOUT - Kraft Fast-forward to 2016, and the Recommended Securities List from the Intelligent Investor contained the best performing stock in the S&P 500, Nvidia (NVDA) which has thus far returned nearly 250% for the year.
Over the years I have been exposing the countless lies and myths spread about gold and silver by gold dealers, paid off precious metals promoters and delusional minions who have been hoodwinked by the precious metals pumping crime syndicate. See the article headlines at the end for more articles, audios and videos on gold and gold con artists. Here’s a tiny list of examples: Top 20 Gimmicks and Lies of Gold Charlatans - 100 pg e-book Understanding Manipulation of Gold by the Media Understanding the Proper Use of Gold and Silver Golden Dreams & Delusions: The Story about Gold You Haven't Heard (PART 1) Gold Charlatans Strike it Rich While their Sheep Get Fleeced (Part 1) Dow-Gold Ratio Scam and Pricing of Gold in Foreign Currencies Scam The California Gold Rush of the Twenty-First Century Dismantling John Williams' Hyperinflation Predictions Rather than jumping on the gold-pumping band wagon, a move which would have easily landed me a 7-figure annual income for merely playing cheerleader (i.e. making up wild stories about gold, the dollar, the stock market and the economy) I did something no one else in the professional investment world opted for. I stuck with the truth. And I put my ass on the line while sacrificing big time money in order to try and help the average Joe. I’ve committed a great deal of time and effort towards exposing the gold pumping crime syndicate. I considered it a public service. Little did I know I would be alone in these efforts. Even today, some eight years after I began exposing this filthy syndicate, I've received virtually no support for these efforts. At best, I’ll occasionally get a lengthy email sent to me by my colleagues that details how a person admits they were fooled by the gang of gold pumping shysters, and now they're down by $400,000 as a result of having no exit strategy in their gold position. Inevitably these individuals seek me out hoping to get advice on what to do. Never mind that they still haven’t figured out that the key to investment success isn’t to jump onto the latest fad but instead to commit yourself to a source of knowledge and expertise so that you can learn from unbiased experts instead of being hoodwinked into scams. Never mind these individuals never even bothered to sign up as a member of the website so they could learn more; so they could begin the process of being transformed from a sheep into a sound investor. Never mind any of this common sense. They all want advice from me. And they want it for free. It doesn't work that way. Anyone offering anything for free is either scamming you or else setting you up to be scammed by others who are paying them. Think how ad-based content works. Think the media. Think Facebook. Think free emails. Do you get the point? See Free versus Paid Content. Never mind the fact that these individuals ultimately fueled the gold pumping crime syndicate in a variety of ways, from generating thousands of dollars in commissions buying precious metals (some of this money was funneled back into the media in the form of ads and paid hacks). Never mind they rewarded the gold-pumping con artists at their own expense thereby making the scam a successful business venture for the perpetrators. The victims of the gold-pumping scam never stopped to think that after all I’ve done to help people avoid being scammed, the least they could do would be to become a member of AVA Investment Analytics so they could support my efforts to help the average Joe. No, certainly not. Instead, they probably donated money to some of these guys when they went on their ebegging campaigns. At the very least they supported the gold-pumping syndicate of scammers by contributing to views which boosted advertisement revenues, promoted these cons as legitimate and credible. At worst they bought gold and silver from them and their buddies. Rewarding criminals while punishing the police is the best way to ensure scams continue. These individuals wanted a quick fix to a problem that was ultimately conjured up in their own mind. If you fell for the gold-pumping scam it was because you allowed it to happen. So if you fell for this scam you need to do some real soul searching. You need to find out why you couldn't see what was so obvious to others. You need to clear your mind. You need to learn how to think critically and logically. Most of all you need to learn how to spot con artists. These are among the many topics we address as part of the content outside of the economic and investment research we publish. Rather than listen to reason, the victims of the scam constantly repeated the lines fed to them by their cult leaders. Rather than question agendas and motives, the victims of the scam embraced a kind of fanatical religion preached by the various precious metals ministers. It didn't matter how obvious it was to others that they were lying or how little credibility they had (think Lindsey Williams and Mike Maloney) or how wrong they've been over and over (think Peter Schiff and Jim Rogers). Precious metals cult members believed every word from every precious metals pumper's mouth. They fell for the scam hook, line and sinker. That’s the type of ignorance that’s truly a curse because it's extremely difficult to remedy. For some, it's impossible to resolve. These are the types of folks destined to fail. God help these people. My mission to expose the liars, their lies and to explain how this syndicate operated in recruiting new cult members while keeping current members from breaking free from the web of deceit began once I spotted a bubble forming in the precious metals market around late-2010. Remember, I first warned that the bubble would come in July 2009 in Fool's Gold. I even predicted the peak price at $2000. I even published an announcement in fall of 2011 that I was selling the last of my silver coins when the price was just under $50 per ounce. All along I knew what the result would be. And I realized it wasn’t going to be too pretty for most of the individuals who had been suckered by the precious metals propaganda that was spreading like a California wildfire unless they happened to be a dealer of precious metals or one of the thousands of paid pumpers. You see, precious metals dealers and promoters win the game regardless where the price of gold and silver head. I tried to emphasize that point over and over years ago, but the gold bugs just couldn’t see the light. This is typical when you’ve become inducted into a cult. These same cult members failed to ask themselves if it made sense that the same people who were telling them that fiat currencies were going to be worthless were willing to accept this fiat currency for gold and silver. And let’s not forget, these are the same characters who have been claiming physical gold and silver have been in short supply for years. Yet, they’ve been anxious to sell you their physical gold and silver for your “worthless” fiat currency. Truly amazing, huh? Although gold had not yet entered a bubble at the time, all of the essential elements required to create a bubble were already present throughout the internet and broadcast media. So I knew it was coming. It was all so obvious to me. So I felt it was my duty to do something before it was too late. I began my crusade to warn the public about an upcoming bubble in precious metals in July 2009. I began these warnings with an article I wrote called Fool’s Gold which was published in three parts. In this now famous article, Fool’s Gold, I not only discussed the manipulation by gold dealers, I also explained the proper use of gold. I also warned gold bugs of the need to have an exit strategy instead of holding it forever. I also laid out a rough multi-decade forecast for gold which included a peak from between $1500 to $2000 per ounce. Thereafter, I predicted the gold bubble would burst and gold would remain in a downward trend for many years, ultimately declining to $300 to $400 where it would remain for many years. See Fool’s Gold (part 2). As it turned out, thus far I have been 100% correct about gold and silver. I actually hold the leading investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006; a claim backed by $1 million. See here. Some of my track record is here (other portions of my investment research track record have either not been released in order to protect the value of our research forecasts or we have not had a chance to post updates since our focus is providing world-class research, not marketing). In fact, I even predicted the bullish retracement in gold and silver that began in early 2016. Subscribers to the CCPM Forecaster know this all too well. Now if you're still waiting for gold to fall to $300 to $400 (I later increased this range to $500) just give it some time. Remember that this forecast was very rough and was made BEFORE quantitative easing was launched. Finally, it was a forecast for 20 to 30 years from 2009. While the precious metals propaganda army was proclaiming this rally in 2016 as the beginning of a new bull market in gold and silver, I specially stated that the upside would last one or two years and would represent a nice selling opportunity because it would only turn out to be a retracement rally from within a long-term bear market as opposed to the beginning of a new bull market in gold. A few years before this rally, I had even mentioned the possibility that gold and silver could enter a one or two-year bull market that would not last and would not push gold prices beyond $1500. I added that this rally would most likely suck many poorly informed individuals into it as they thought it was the start of a new bull market. As is always the case, whenever someone writes or says something that isn’t so positive about gold or silver, the precious metals cult comes out of the wood works reiterating numerous myths and lies they have been told by their gold pumping ring leaders. After a while of hearing and reading the typical nonsense these cult members rattle off, you can predict just about everything they will say in advance. It's almost like a script. It can be a bit scary to come across some of these individuals because you start to wonder what's going on in their heads. At the same time the gold bugs assume individuals who have made disparaging remarks about gold and silver must have an axe to grind or are “bashers.” Without looking into the person’s background or examining their track record, they rattle off their predictable nonsense, like a script. Of course, if these cult members were aware of the critical need to look into the background and track record of everyone who opens their mouth, and if they were capable of accurately assessing track records, they wouldn’t be stuck holding gold and silver with huge losses. As an example, I do not know of a single person in the precious metals pumping syndicate that has a good track record or even has real credibility. Can you name a single individual from that gang that has a good track record of forecasts? I can't. In fact, every single one of those slime balls have served as excellent contrarian indicators. Can you name a single gold-pumping ring leader who has real credibility? I can't. Is there a single one of these gold shysters that doesn't have a shady past? So far I haven't found a single one with a clean slate. And I’ve investigated just about every single one of these hucksters. My former clients know I was recommending gold stocks beginning in late-2001 because I sensed the beginning of a bull market in gold; but not due to economic fundamentals. The fact is that there are no real fundamentals underlying gold and silver pricing other than supply and demand. The main reason why gold and silver began their bull run during that time was due to the dotcom bubble collapse as well as the impact of 9-11 on the capital markets combined with many years of suppressed gold and silver pricing. Two years before the financial crisis began I recommended buying gold and silver (America's Financial Apocalypse, 2006) as one component of what end up being extraordinarily lucrative investment strategy. 1 The following image was taken from America's Financial Apocalypse (Extended Version, 2006). But rather than advising people to buy physical gold and silver unlike what all precious metals dealers were doing, I recommended buying the gold and silver ETFs because they were associated with much lower transaction costs. I also preferred ETFs because they were liquid, unlike physical gold and silver. Finally, I discussed the need to have an exit strategy in gold and silver as well as the need to trade the ETFs in order to reduce risk by exploiting the price volatility. I reiterated this message in my 2009 article Fool's Gold, as well as in many other articles, videos and audios. The following image was taken from America's Financial Apocalypse (Extended Version, 2006). What can I say? Shoot me for acting honestly and trying to educate everyday investors while helping them avoid being ripped off by gold dealers. Incidentally, I think it's important to note that these recommendations for handling precious metals are standard protocol for every legitimate financial professional. The problem was that there were no legitimate financial professionals pitching gold and silver. There still aren’t any today. And I doubt tomorrow will be any different given the nature of that very shady industry. At best you had a couple of boiler room stock brokers, at least one of which had previously been accused of fraud by securities industry regulators. I find it ironic that the same man who was accused of fraudulent marketing practices in the 1990s was pulling the same kinds of stunts in a few years ago, but this time for some reason he got away with it. Many other figure head precious metals dealers and pumpers came from shady pasts as well. If the small handful of gold pumpers who came from the financial industry had any real knowledge about finance, economics, valuations and how the capital markets operate, they sure didn’t express this knowledge. All they were doing was pitching fear and greed while playing on the emotions of confused and worried individuals who simply wanted to do the right thing for their future. By definition, this was a huge con. It was and remains illegal. That means everyone involved could face legal actions, but only if enough people complain to the right authorities. Now you know why these gold pumpers are desperate to keep the cult members deluded. In short, they want the cult members who have lost huge amounts of money (and also stand to lose much more in the future) to keep the hope alive. But of course they're also hoping to recruit new members in order to rack up more commissions and pump the price of gold and silver up. The problem is that many of these people who were burned as well as younger potential new recruits have moved into cryptocurrencies. Yes of course the cryptocurrency market is another scam run by the same gang that's behind the precious metals industry, Wall Street, the banks, the Federal Reserve, the media and many other industries. By now you know who I'm talking about. If you want to get scammed, this group will make sure it happens. I would advise everyone to avoid anything being run by Jews unless you have someone by your side who really knows what's going on. And if you don't understand the tribal nature of Jews you probably don't realize how and why they take over entire industries while everyone on the outside gets hosed. Many of these cult members will die still believing the lies they swallowed from the precious metals pumpers. Others will gradually fade out of the cult and back into reality. Either scenario will be effective because each one will reduce the odds that a sufficient number of victims will file a complaints with various state attorneys general and federal trade commission. Most of these victims don't even know who to file complaints with. Continuation of the propaganda will also act to help ensure various statutes of limitations have come and passed so long as the precious metals cult leaders are able to keep hope alive. One of the biggest precious metals pumping cult leaders has the kind of resume you'd expect from this gang of charlatans. He was a high school dropout. And his only work experience prior to selling gold and silver was as a car audio salesman. After selling car radios, he became one of the hard-sell pitchmen associated with the Robert Kiyosaki’s “cash flow” and “wealth generator” seminar scams. Perhaps you've heard about these scams on infomercials if you happen to watch Jerry Springer or Cheaters reruns at 2am or 3am? They're always set up at hotels near the airport so they can make a fast getaway after they've conned the suckers who show up for the "free" event. Anyway, I could go on and on about this epic scam which is not likely to even be recorded in history books since after all, the media was a prime player. And I’m not just talking about the so-called “alternative media.” While frauds like Alex Jones, Jeff Rense and thousands of other liars and con artists consider “alternative media” talking heads were pushing all kinds of crazy conspiracies and fronting wild stories about the economy and such, the so-called mainstream media was also involved in the gold pumping scam. I’ll just mention a few names to fresh your memory. Peter Schiff, Glenn Beck, Ron Paul, and every single conservative talking head on the radio such as Mark Levine, Jerry Doyle, etc. Think about it.
UPDATE (April 2, 2021): since 2011 we have been offering to award the first person who was able to demonstrate that another financial professional was able to at least match the investment forecasting track record of Mike Stathis since he began publishing investment research in 2006. After one decade of failing to receive a single submission to challenge our guarantee, we decided to officially close this offer (see below). This decision should in no way be taken to imply that we no longer believe Mr. Stathis holds the leading forecasting track record in the world. We remain confident that Mr. Stathis continues to hold the world's leading investment forecasting track record. As such, we are willing to extend this offer on an individual basis if we receive sufficient materials which present a reasonable case that warrants expenditure of our time and effort to address the challenge. We are even open to reducing the offer to the previous $100,000 so that the entrant is not required to risk loss of his/her own money if (when) they lose the challenge. Quite simply, we remain anxious to address all reasonable challenges. But each challenge must be of sufficient accuracy and detail to warrant our attention. Please note that we will only entertain one entry at a time. If you submit a challenge during a period when we are addressing a previous entry, we will inform you of this and provide you with an estimate of when we believe we will be able to address your challenge (when possible). Individuals are permitted to submit only one challenge. Any and all offers to extend this guarantee are up to our discretion. If we feel a submission does not meet minimal threshold required to warrant our time and effort to present a counter case, the individual will be notified of this. If this individual does not agree with our analysis and decision, the entrant can pursue this matter in a court of law. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- August 2017 marked the eighth year we offered a cash reward for anyone who could provide evidence that there was another financial professional who could at least match Mike Stathis' track record in investment forecasting and analysis since 2006. Prior to the recent expiration of this $100,000 reward, we launched a similar contest but raised the stakes to $1,000,000. This offer expired in June 2017. See here. Last month we announced the extension of this $1,000,000 challenge, through sometime in 2018. We also extended the period covered by this challenge by another year, from late 2006 to October 2017. Today we are announcing the official expiration date of this $1,000,000 challange. We will accept all serious submissions for this challenge up through August 31, 2018 on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will make all research publications available for analysis for official entries once they have satisfied the basic requirements. Until then, you can begin to analyze Mike Stathis' track record here, here, here, here, here, here and here. If you don't feel sufficiently qualified to perform a proper analysis of forecasting track records or if don't have adequate time to put in all of the work needed for this challenge, feel free to send this to anyone you think might stand a better chance of completing a reasonable entry. You can even send this to the clowns positioned in the media as "experts" and ask if they would care to enter this challenge.
As you all know, I never watch CNBC. My aversion for trash and scams doesn't stop with CNBC. I never pay any attention to any financial media because I realize what a huge disinfo scam it is. Some people never learn. As usual, I'll be blunt. If you're still paying attention to the media you're going to continue losing money. Remember that all ad-based content is a JEWISH scam, from all broadcast and print media, to all internet and social media. Good God, if you haven't figured this out by now you're basically hopeless!
To anyone who doubts that the Jewish mafia runs the media or to those who demand proof of this claim, simply watch the following videos. Two of these videos will also demonstrate how Jewish shills operate. Want even more evidence? Check out the hundreds of videos, audios and articles created by the world's number one investment analyst and fraud investigator, Mike Stathis.
Among his other amazing forecasts, Mike Stathis is the ONLY financial professional in the world to have timed the gold and silver bull and bear market, starting with recommendations to clients to buy select gold stocks in late 2001, as well as his recommendation to buy gold and silver ETFs in his landmark 2006 book, America's Financial Apocalypse, to his warnings about a gold bubble that would rise to 1500 to 2000 and then burst and continue a downward trend for many years. View Mike Stathis' Track Record here, here, here, here, here and here Check here to download Chapter 12 of Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble. Note that Mike Stathis does NOT make any money selling precious metals, precious metals ads, securities, or ads of any kind. He is a true research analyst and is arguably the world's best today. If you are not listening to Mike Stathis, you are probably going to lose your ass. It is also important to note that Mike has never recommended purchase of physical gold or silver for investment purposes, but rather gold and silver ETFs due to the lack of liquidity and presence of huge fees seen with physical gold and silver. This recommendation accounts for the main reason why he has been completely blackballed from so-called alternative media (since alternative media consists of huge gold pumpers). Mike has also been blacklisted by the so-called mainstream media because they do not want people to know the facts in advance or to ppint out who is respeonsible or the fraud. This publication has a total length of over 100 pages and contains some of Mike's most compelling and insightful analyses and conclusions regarding the gold pumping syndicate. List of SOME of Mike's articles and videos on Gold Because of the effort required to create this publication (reports of this length and depth typically require more than 300 hours to complete) as well as the valuable education provided in this report (each of Mike's articles could easily save investors thousands of dollars by preventing them from being taken), this publication in its entirety is only available to Clients and Members. However, as a part of our continuing efforts to expose investment fraud, con men and complete idiots positioned by the media as "experts," we have made a portion of the introduction available to the general public. Keep in mind that when you decide whether or not to listen to the ideals of someone, it is critical to determine their credibility and agendas. So how does Mike stack up in terms of credibility? As most of you already know, Mike holds the leading investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006. View Mike Stathis' Track Record here, here, here, here, here, here and here. In fact, Mike is the only person we know of to have ever attached a $100,000 reward available to anyone who could prove that he doesn’t hold the leading investment forecasting track record in the world. What about agendas or bias? Does Mike get paid by outside interests to promote precious metals or securities? Absolutely not. It is critical to keep in mind that Mike does not sell advertisements, precious metals or securities. Therefore, he has NO agendas. I challenge you to find another financial professional who does not receive any form of compensation from the sales of securities, precious metals, or advertisements. Mike has also emerged as one of the world's foremost authorities on investment-related and consumer fraud. Membership Resources Membership Resources As perhaps the sole voice of reason pertaining to precious metals…that is to say, having accurately predicted the bull market and having warned investors about gold dealers and the gold bubble…Mike has revealed the layers surrounding this fraudulent scheme for several years now. List of SOME of Mike's articles and videos on Gold Ask yourself why you never see Stathis' work discussed on any gold websites. Ask why you will never hear him being interviewed by gold dealers. Ask yourself why very few gold pumpers or gold dealers have any credibility. Ask yourself why some gold pumpers even refuse to give you their real name. Ask yourself why some gold pumpers have moved to second and third world nations while carrying out their "business," and/or have appeared on the scene only around the time of the financial crisis. Ask yourself why every gold pumper always says the same thing, always makes excuses when gold and silver decline, never provide you with an exit strategy, and always insist you buy physical metals. Of course the answer to each of these mysteries is a bit different, but you can pretty much sum it up with the following... They are all lying con men and idiots who are being paid to pump gold and silver to sheep. Mike is a real investment professional with excellent credentials, an excellent track record, no agendas (he does not sell gold, silver, advertisements or securities) and he has worked in the financial industry as a professional since the 1990s. Wake up and smell the coffee. All sources that discuss and publish material about gold and silver are NOT legit sources of unbiased info. They are providing you with cheap infomercials!! Stop being taken for a fool. For those who insist on remaining skeptical despite Stathis' world-leading investment track record, his absence of agendas and his results-based research and insights, it is important to keep in mind that he was recommending gold investments as early as late-2001 while working on Wall Street. Check into every single precious metal dealer and you will see that their one-sided bull shit sales pitch is designed specifically to convince you that your financial safety relies on you buying gold and silver. But not just any form of gold and silver, such as through ETFs, which are the least expensive way to own them, not to mention the only way to own a liquid version of these illiquid metals. Are their claims true? Do they have any validity? According to Mike Stathis, the answer is NO. They are trying to swindle you. They pull this scam by creating an endless array of lies AND by repeating them over and over using advertisements, documentaries, conferences, websites, and so forth. The gold and silver pumping scam has been the big fraud of the post-financial crisis era. And no one is talking about it EXCEPT Mike Stathis. Check into every precious metals promoter (websites, conferences, radio shows) and you will see that every single person who promotes precious metals dealers is selling ads for precious metals and similar items that fit into the doomsday theme. Would you really go to a real estate broker if you wanted to find out of it was a good time to buy a house? If so then you are very naive. The same situation exists with seeking out information about the economy and precious metals. The last person you would want to pay attention to are precious metals dealers and those who make money selling precious metals and related ads. During the California Gold Rush of the 1800s, most of the people who struck it rich weren't gold miners. The guys who really made a fortune were the ones who opened general stores. They made a killing selling these hopeful gold prospectors supplies. This is exactly how the current precious metals scam will play out as well. The guys who make all the money will be those who are selling you the precious metals, doomsday products and those who sell advertisements. The California Gold Rush Of The Twenty-First Century If you are interested in being exposed to the best source of insight you need to seek out the views of individuals who have no bias, no agendas and who have very good track records. I can guarantee you will NEVER find such individuals who talk up gold and silver. As Mike has been warning, if you pay attention to ad-based content your life is going to suffer in many ways. And by the time you truly realize this it might be too late. Doomsday douche bags and gold charlatans come in all varieties, from smooth talking sharks who claim to be investment experts (despite their lack of professional experience), to fruit loops who continue to predict hyperinflation and destruction of the dollar, year after year. Their propaganda campaign has been in the making for a number of years and it has been elaborately engineered. No expense has been spared to carry out this grand production because the payoff is enormous, from 10% to 40% commissions on every dollar they convince their sheep to lay down on gold and silver. The plot is simple. Convince naive and/or unsophisticated individuals that the dollar is headed to 0, hyperinflation is inevitable, and the stock market is going to collapse by as much as 80%. Next, position gold and silver as your savior from doom. With a scenario like that, people rarely even think about the high commissions they are paying for gold and silver. They focus on buying as much as they can. The entire scam constitutes fraud. In order to carry out this heist, these charlatans utilize one of the oldest and most common tricks used by the media. I call it the flooding approach. That is, if you get several individuals constantly delivering the same message, most people will accept it as true. This giant wave of deceit and fraud features numerous conferences, events and other platforms created specifically for the purpose of advancing the countless lies, myths and scare tactics all of which comprise the case for gold and silver as a way to protect yourself from the destruction of all currencies. These con men are seen and heard everywhere you look, from mainstream and alternative media, to thousands of websites and radio stations. Their online presence is inescapable. No matter where you turn, you will see ads for gold and silver and doomsday scenarios on virtually every website containing ad-based content, pointing to just how much money is involved in pumping the precious metals doomsday sales pitch. The gold/silver doomsday scam has offered hope for thousands of unemployed individuals who now support themselves by serving as whores for Google via Adsense, whether it be by pimping ads for precious metals on their website or their You Tube channel. Some even hold a day job, but greed has gotten the best of them so they too have become paid whores for the highly deceptive precious metals industry. They have become small-scale versions of Peter Schiff, Glenn Beck and Alex Jones, spewing all kinds of ridiculous statements and scare tactics. Working part time, there have been some who have managed to bring in a six-figure income selling precious metals and doomsday ads through their gold pumping websites and You Tube channels as a part-time gig. And of course we cannot forget about the guys pitching gold "chocolate bars" which are marketed as a way to "protect the value of your currency." In fact, these awkward thin slabs of gold are even positioned as a real currency that might place one at a huge advantage during high inflation. Wow. The suggestive nature of this pitch is alarming, especially considering the fact that the main pitch man is a licensed securities professional, supposedly with strict oversight by FINRA and the SEC. As you can imagine, if you want to rip people off and get away with it, it pays to be Jewish, especially when you work in industries completely controlled by the Jewish Mafia. After you purchase this "gold currency," it immediately loses 8% of its value due to the fees paid to the vender. Oddly, these venders never mention this reality. I wonder why. And we certainly cannot leave out all of those self-proclaiming "patriots, liberty-lovers and capitalists" who sell non-government issued silver coins that cannot even be used as monopoly money, but which are being sold for prices much higher than the spot metal price. I'm willing to bet that a good deal of these coins contain less silver than advertised. It is indeed amazing just how gullible the general population has become. I do not know what is more depressing; the gullible nature of the general population or the large and growing number of con men in the population looking to suck every penny from everyone they can (continued for Members and Clients). Regardless of the angle utilized to herd the sheep, all of these doomsday charlatans have a few things in common. And now I shall discuss 20 of the Most Common Characteristics of Gold Charlatans. After you read this analysis, you will fully understand how these scam artists operate and how they have fooled millions with their snake oil.
Mike has been warning the public about the damaging effects of social media for many years. He has also warned people about the data mining industry which exploded with the formation of social media. In this audio, Mike speaks about the latest Facebook scam for the first time.

Mike Stathis holds the leading investment forecasting track record in the world since 2006. Membership Resources Mike Stathis has amassed one of the most impressive investment analysis and forecasting track records in history. No one who is truly familiar with his track record can deny that. View Mike Stathis' Track Record here, here, here, here and here. He has even offered a $1,000,000 challenge backing up this claim. See here. The Jewish mafia can ban Mike Stathis but they can NOT take away his world-leading track record. Imagine someone with Stathis' track record and unique insights being banned by all media (mainstream and alternative). This is not fantasy. It's reality. Once you begin to understand how things work you will realize that all media (both mainstream and alternative) is designed to screw its audience by banning real experts who have no agendas while promoting shills, con artists, liars and anyone else who is willing to be bought off. Invariably, the Jewish-run media seeks to promote Jews to fill this deceptive role in order to enable them to profit from the scam. That explains why with only a composition of less than 2% in the US population, Jews completely dominate the so-called "expert" line up in the media (as well as executives positions in media firms, Wall Street, etc.). By preventing access to Stathis, the media crime bosses are stealing the wealth from the masses. As a result, the countless con artists promoted by the media continue to steer the masses down the gutter in a variety of ways which remain undetected by most people. For instance, the so-called "experts" pitch their books (which are invariably useless or provide terrible guidance/advice) to the sheep. These books cause the sheep to remain clueless if not reckless. These charlatans also preach all kinds of disinformation which causes them to be swindled through the purchase of a variety of financial products; financial products which are frequently advertised on those same media networks. Thus, the disinformation from the so-called "experts" in the media ultimately causes many of the sheep to line up for these products and services. This accomplishes the objectives of the media; to maximize return on investment by advertisers so that these advertisers will pony up even more money for ads for the next show. If you could image a world in which Mike Stathis received the media attention proportionate to his credibility and track record, you would see Main Street begin to benefit instead of being slaughtered. But this would not serve the media's agendas, as valued insight would cause the media to lose advertising revenue since the masses would no longer need to run to financial services firms for assistance. As impressive as Mike's investment track record is, some have suggested that the work he has done exposing the financial media and its so-called experts might be equally impressive. One could certainly form compelling arguments supportive of this claim. During the past two decades for which Mike has been investigating the financial media, he has risen to become the world leader in exposing the lies, deception and fraud behind the financial media and its so-called "experts." It is difficult to overstate Mike's accomplishments in exposing the tricks used by the financial media to defraud and deceive its audience. When most people think of financial fraud they envision corporate or securities fraud. But the big fraud that remains largely unrecognized comes from within the inner workings of the financial media. This category of fraud represents an enormous segment from within the entire universe of financial fraud. And it poses the biggest threat to Main Street for two primary reasons. First, this fraud remains largely undetected by most investors. Second, the financial media has been able to avoid legal ramifications for carrying out these daily scams. Therefore, you should expect the scams to continue if not increase in prevalence. How have media firms been able to avoid legal ramifications of their fraudulent activities? Answer: The Jewish Buddy System. The same group of criminals who run the media also run Wall Street. They also control the legal system. This group is the Jewish mafia. But that's not the end of the story. They also control all securities regulatory organizations from the SEC and FINRA to the NFA and CFTC. And of course they also control the Department of Justice. The Jewish mafia controls the entire game. AT LEAST 6 of 9 Supreme Court Justices (tenth spot was unfilled at the time this image was created) are Jewish. Remember, Jews comprise only around 2% of the US populaton, making the chances of their more than 65% representation on the Supreme Court an impossibility due to random events. To date, Mike Stathis has exposed just about every financial charlatan who reaches large audiences, from Jim Rickards to Jim Rogers. And just about every single one of the charlatans promoted by the media as an expert is Jewish, including motivational charlatan Tony Robbins, who is now seen giving financial advice throughout the Jewish-run media monopoly. Yet, Mike Stathis cannot so much as get ten seconds of air time for which he would provide invaluable assistance to Main Street. The small number of charlatans afforded with constant media exposure that happen not to be Jewish (excluding the occasional token minority) are either working with/for Jewish individuals/businesses, or they are married to Jews. This is a fact. Mike has noted this trend after many years of careful observation and investigation. For instance, one of the most infamous charlatans, Robert Kiyosaki is not likely Jewish (although we do not know anything about his mother so the possibility remains). But his original business partner for many years was a Jewish female who wrote all of his books (she only broke off the business partnership with him after he allegedly defrauded her, but that's another story). You should also note that for many years Kiyosaki has been a significant business partner with several media firms (i.e. he does business with Jewish-run firms) because he has spent tens of millions of dollars in advertising. This cozy relationship between Kiyosaki and the Jewish media most likely explains why the no on from US media will expose him for the charlatan and reckless financial "guru" that he is. In contrast, the Canadian media exposed him many years ago. Perhaps Kiyosaki should have spent more advertising money in Canada... Mike has also shown how penny stock pump-and-dump schemes work, how to spot them, and he has identified the source of these scams. Mike has also exposed many of the firms and individuals behind the enormous financial copyrighting industry. And he has discussed how many copyrighting firms are involved in penny stock scams. But of course, he has also exposed the various lies and tactics used by the gold pumping con artists. The fact of the matter is that there is no one in the world who has come remotely close to Stathis' work uncovering this huge syndicate of charlatans. And he has dedicated his time and energy towards this pursuit in order to help Main Street. Throughout the period for which Mike Stathis has been documenting who these charlatans are and how they operate, he has constantly stressed that the media is largely responsible for enabling these charlatans for which they claim are "experts." For instance, none of these charlatans would be able to cause Main Street to lose money if they did not receive constant media attention. Remember that the media dictates what messages are delivered. The media determines your perception of reality (if you pay attention to the media). Thus, the media is just as much if not more responsible for causing investors to be littered with the kind of ridiculous nonsense from the likes of broken clock, fear-mongering hucksters like Harry Dent, Jim Rogers and Peter Schiff (all Jewish by the way) as well as the countless perma-bull market stock manipulators like Jim Cramer and his crew of Jewish scum bags who regularly appear on scam networks like CNBC, FOX and Bloomberg. Harry Dent was one of the charlatans that first made Mike's watch list many years ago. Mike recalls first coming across Harry Dent's dogma twenty years ago when he worked as a financial adviser with United Bank of Switzerland. At the time, Dent served as a propaganda whore for mutual fund companies which paid him outrageous speaking fees in exchange for spreading delusions of Dow Jones 20,000 and Nasdaq 20,000 by 2008 to financial advisers. This was not long before the dotcom bubble would burst and 9-11 would send the Dow plunging. Of course, since that time Dent claims to have predicted the financial crisis. Needless to say, Dent absolutely did not predict the financial crisis. Harry Dent has proven over the years to be a shameless liar. Get this. Dent also claims the financial crisis was caused by the baby boomer spending dynamics! This is how he's able to claim that he predicted the financial crisis. If he believes (or pretends to believe) it was caused by something related to baby boomers, then he can tie it into his bogus baby boomer demographics narrative. Too funny! No one has done more to expose the reality behind Harry Dent and his countless shenanigans than Mike Stathis. For instance, while no one else even knew about or remembered Dent's embarassing stent several years ago as a fund manager, Stathis reminded the public of his epic failure. Mutual Fund Disasters: Harry Dent the Fund Manager Stathis also exposed Dent's manipulatory tactics, his flip-flopping and his ridiculous demographics nonsense. He's Back. Harry Dent Making More Ridiculous Predictions A Look at Harry Dent's Track Record Harry Dent. Economist, Futurist and Contrarian Indicator An Important Message from Charlatan Harry Dent Harry Dent, Wall Street Investment Bible and Brazilian Real Estate And who can forget the video Stathis made exposing Dent's ridiculously miserable broken clock track record? Moron of the Month: Harry Dent Here, Mike dissects an email marketing pitch from Dent and his copyrighting monkeys showing you the typical deception and manipulation we've come to expect from Dent and other clowns working for boiler rooms like Agora Financial. EXPOSED: More Doomsday Charlatans (Agora Financial Part 1) Below are images of an email from Harry Dent's copywriting clowns. As you go through the analysis of his pitch, note this is the type of garbage Dent and other copywriters (who claim to be economists and analysts) send out on a daily basis.
A few years ago we offered investors a great opportunity to get patched into our research instead of following the various copyediting shops that have been claiming the end of America, the end of the dollar and other nonsense. These are the same guys who utilize "freedom and liberty" as emotional anchors in order to convince their cult members to buy gold and move to Argentina (Doug Casey), Chile (Jeff Berwick) and Puerto Rico (Peter Schiff, Mike Maloney and Doug Casey). As many of you already know, Mike Stathis is the only person in the world who has been exposing and documenting the entire genre of doomsday douche bag broken clock charlatans for many years now. We also offered investors a great opportunity to escape the perma-bull knuckle heads in the media like Jim Cramer and the rest of the Jewish "experts" who seem to get just about everything wrong. See How Jim Cramer, CNBC and Other Jewish Con Men Screw the Sheep Those who took advantage of our special subscription promotion at that time probably ended up doing pretty well. You might want to take a look at some results of our research here. After all, in addition to Mike Stathis' world-leading market forecasting track record, his securities selection and guidance has been quite accurate, whether we are talking about the securities section of the Intelligent Investor or Dividend Gems. To highlight Mike's vision, in September 2011 we released an article that followed up on Mike's Top 3 stocks for long-term growth. This list was first published in the very first issue of the Intelligent Investor in June 2009. See here for our first update on this list published in September 2011. What's really important about this list of Mike's Top 3 stocks for long-term growth (other than the amazing performance) is that Mike never previously released a list like this. And he hasn't released a similar list since then. So he isn't creating a hit-or-miss batch of lists and cherry-picking the one that did well. That's just one of the countless scams used by copyediting shops. This has been Mike's only list of stocks he felt had the best chance of long-term growth. Those who read the Wall Street Investment Bible already know that Mike has an uncanny ability to analyze stocks and determine to a high degree of accuracy whether or not they will be a flop or a raging success. For instance, in the Wall Street Investment Bible Mike specifically recommended readers to short Blockbuster and take a long position in Netflix. At that time, Netflix was trading at a split adjusted price of about $4 per share. As well, Mike predicted the bankruptcies of several companies in that book. Even if you hadn't read the Wall Street Investment Bible, Mike prompted investors about Netflix's bright future with articles discussing Netflix. If you were a Member or Client you probably read these articles (just one more reason to become a paid member). Blockbuster Then and Now: Lessons for Traders and Investors Did You Lose Money on Blockbuster? If So, It Didn't Have to Happen Others who purchased Mike's special video series in 2012, [20 Stocks Over $100] were treated to a brilliant video analysis of some really good stocks he liked as long-term investments.See here. As well, his video series [60 Stocks Poised for Huge Moves] (also released in 2012) once again demonstrated Stathis' world-class investment aptitude. See here and here. Those of you who have been following Mike for many years might recall that he advised investors to sell the stock market and short the banks and homebuilders in his 2006 book America's Financial Apocalypse as well as in May 2008 in one of his first published articles. He even devoted an entire chapter towards showing readers how and when to short these securities in him 2007 book, Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble. He also issued his very first market buy recommendation when the stock market bottomed. And I mean on the exact day the stock market bottomed. Of course, no one would realize that March 10, 2009 was the bottom until several years later. It's very important to note that this market buy recommendation was the first Mike had issued, so he wasn't advising investors to buy all the way down. Mike's other macro calls have been simply amazing and have helped position him as arguably the world's leading investment mind today. Since Mike list of Top 3 stocks for long-term growth was first published in June 2009, all three stocks have blown away their respective indexes. Furthermore, the top 2 performers of this list of three have been on the Intelligent Investor Recommended Securities list ever since the June 2009 issue was published. Here, we wanted to give you an update as to the performance of these stocks since the last time they were discussed. Some investors seized upon this opportunity to get patched into our research back in 2011. Of course, the most fortunate ones have been subscribers ever since our very first issue of the Intelligent Investor. And yes, we have subscribers since that time. After all, what sane person would not line up to hear what the world's top investment strategist and analyst has to say? But even those who seized upon the opportunity to begin accessing our research in late 2011 after we provided this update would have done extremely well, as the chart below demonstrates. For those who failed to become Members or research subscribers, you need to ask yourself how much about investing have you learned over the years and how have your investments been doing. If you had subscribed to our research back when we updated the performance of these three stocks you would have done extremely well. By now you're probably wondering what the names of these 3 stocks are. If you'd like to know what these three stocks are, you're going to have to pay for this information. But we want to warn you that those who simply think they can achieve great performance by investing off of a list (even from a list that has done amazingly well and was created by the world's top investment forecaster) aren't likely to do well in the long run because this type of behavior displays an impulsive characteristic. Rather than being impulsive and unwilling to spend the required time and effort needed to learn what you need to go up against tens of millions of investors, the only route towards becoming a really good investor is to dedicate yourself to the investment process because it's going to take you many years at best to learn much of what you need to know. And that assumes you have an amazing teacher and guide like Mike Stathis. But if you do want the list, you can submit a payment of $29.95 and we will send it to you. 1 If you want to subscribe to the Intelligent Investor (or if you are a current subscriber) you will get the list for free.2 1 This list does not come with any analysis and does not discuss whether Mike believes these securities will continue to deliver tremendous returns. Past returns should not be taken as a reliable indicator of future performance. 2 All subscribers to the Intelligent Investor will receive this list for free since the two best performing securities from this are currently on the Intelligent Investor Recommended Securities list and have been on this list since the first issue was published in June 2009. If you are a subscriber to the Intelligent Investor as of the date of publication of this article or thereafter, you will receive this list at no charge. Intelligent Investor subscribers should NOT email us and ask us for the list. We will deliver it to each active subscriber in the near future. Subscribers to any of our other publications will not receive this list unless they submit payment of $29.95.
You might recall that I have profiled a few mutual fund disasters. If you haven't already read these articles, I strongly suggest you do so ASAP. Mutual Fund Disasters: An Overview Mutual Fund Disasters (Part 2) Mutual Fund Disasters (Part 3) Mutual Fund Disasters: David Tice and his Prudent Bear Fund Mutual Fund Disasters: The Rise and Fall of Bill Miller Mutual Fund Disasters: Harry Dent the Fund Manager Target-Date Funds: Another Dangerous Investment Epiphany And if you have already read them, you might want to take another look because one can never get enough of the truth when it comes to the financial industry. It is important to understand that there are many more of these fund disasters; too many for me to cover. And I'm sure there are many more that I do not know about. Perhaps the most important take away message from these articles is that you should never assume any fund manager or financial "expert" is worth a damn regardless what Morningstar (which serves as a hack firm for funds) or the media tells you because they are all playing on the same team. You are viewed as the opposing team. And their intent is to grab as much money from you as possible, all while making it look like they are doing you a favor. You should always assume that all fund managers and financial advisers are fairly useless, or else not worth what they are charging you until proven otherwise (and if you think that a 2 or 3% annual fee is small, try compounding this rate over several years and tell me what you think. Have a look at the long-term impact of fees on your returns.
Here Mike exposes one of countless pump-and-dump scams headed by Jim Cramer and the criminal operation CNBC.
As a result of Stathis' accurate interest rate forecasts, his institutional clients and others who might have access to interest rate swaps and other dervivatives linked to interest rate changes have been able to make a killing.
Why doesn't the media simply provide valuable insight? Wouldn't that be a more effective and more profiable way to boost viewership and thus ad revenues? Have you ever wondered why, after years of being wrong on just about everything, some people still think clowns like Peter Schiff, Harry Dent, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Jim Rickards and the rest of the broken clock doomsday clan positioned by the media as legitimate sources of economic and investment insight? Over the years I have sought to document the horrendous track records of the most commonly promoted clowns in the financial media in order to warn investors that the financial media cannot be trusted and has been specifically designed to mislead its audience. I have dedicated an enormous amount of time and effort exposing this media scam in order to help investors understand how they are being misled, lied to and ripped off. As a matter of fact, I have no doubt that I am the world's leading expert exposing these financial charlatans and the financial media scam. If you want evidence that I am the leading source in the world exposing media charlatans, simply enter the names of these clowns into our search box (located to the upper right-hand side of the page) and you will get a rough estimate of the number of articles and videos I have published.
I think it is important to remind people about the price and quality of content. It’s really quite simple. No content is truly free. You pay a huge price for that content. Unfortunately, the price you pay is almost always hidden so that most people never even realize what it has cost them. Most often, the cost is an opportunity cost or the cost of misinformation which leads to huge losses of money or even one's health.
For several years we have been showing how the media’s so-called “experts” are at best, nothing more than broken clock contrarian indicators. At worst they are complete con artists. Mike Stathis has been the first and still only financial professional in the world to have exposed this media scam. Stathis has demonstrated exhaustively how the Jewish-controlled media intentionally airs these clowns in order to command higher prices from advertisers. By positioning broken clocks and idiots as experts, the audience ends up losing so much money they they eventually run in desperation to the advertisers (most of which are financial firms). This conclusion has been presented in the endless articles, audios and videos published by Stathis for several years. His work on this topic alone is worth thousands of dollars for every investor because understanding how the media works can save each investor from losing massive sums of money. Despite having spent thousands of hours researching the kosher media scam and thousands of additional hours creating content to alert the public, Stathis has provided this work at no cost as a public service. That alone should tell you what he's all about. The kicker is that since the media is completely controlled by the Jewish Mafia, and because Jews have a very long history of working together against gentiles, only Jewish individuals, those who are married to Jews or who represent Jewish firms are permitted in the media. Jewish media crime bosses understand that publicity translates into big money for those who receive it, regardless how foolish and wrong they are. So they restrict media coverage to Jews and those who are aligned with the interests of the Jewish Mafia. Stathis has also shown this in many publications and videos over the past few years. How the Jewish Media Steals from Gentiles We have previously documented the fact that Mike Stathis has been completely banned by all media ever since writing America's Financial Apocalypse. We argue this be the best and most accurate investment-related book ever written. But remember, Stathis is not Jewish. Despite his world-leading investment forecasting track record, Stathis continues to banned while the same Jewish broken clocks, con artists and idiots are promoted as experts by their tribesmen in the media on a daily basis. This scam continues to mislead and defraud millions of investors who are naive enough to think they can obtain quality insight for "free." Jewish Media Scam: Promote Jewish Losers and Ban Gentile Experts Let’s briefly look at a few recent examples illustrating Mike Stathis' spectacular market forecasting track record. Do you remember when China suddenly devalued the yuan in the summer of 2015, triggering a massive selloff in the global capital markets? We actually nailed the bottom of this huge selloff and advised our research customers to buy at the bottom Guess Who Advised To Go to Cash BEFORE the Market Collapse? Do you remember when China suddenly rattled the global capital markets with yet another rapid devaluation of the yuan? Well, our reseach nailed the bottom and recommended investors to buy. Our Clients Avoided Being Exposed to the Market Collapse Do you remember in June of 2016 when everyone was panicking over the “Brexit” vote? Do you remember when the global capital markets collapsed in response to the results of this vote that took nearly all investors by surprise? Even before the votes were made, Mike stated that while the Brexit would certainly cause short-term market downside, it would essentially be a minor event with respect to the US stock market. And over the longer-term it probably would boost the US stock market. Moreover, in his June 2016 Market Forecasting presentation made in early June, Mike actually provided the buy-in levels for the US stock market, which came very close to nailing the exact bottom of the post-Brexit stock market selloff. As a result, those who entered the market based on his forecast in June were rewarded with huge gains in just a few weeks. In addition, during his July Market Forecast (prepared on July 10), Mike came out with a stunning revelation. He stated that before 2016 had concluded, he believed the Dow Jones and S&P 500 could rise to 19,000 and 2200 (maybe even 2250) respectively. At that time the Dow and S&P 500 were trading at 18,226 and 2137, respectively. If you want to know where Mike thinks the market is headed from here, you can either subscribe to the Market Forecaster or the Intelligent Investor. No matter what you want to look at, whether it’s his world-leading US stock market forecasts, or his equally accurate forecasts on emerging markets, individual stocks, currencies, gold, silver, oil, cotton, soybeans, milk, wheat, corn, cotton, or even his accurate forecasts on interest rates, inflation, macroeconomics in the European union, Japan, Brazil, India and China… ...Mike Stathis’ track record is unmatched by anyone in the world. We are so confident of this that since August 2010 we have offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who can prove otherwise. We have even recently raised this reward to $1,000,000. Membership Resources We believe Mike Stathis is one of the world’s top two or three investment minds in the world today. His track record confirms that.

You can get a little better idea about his track record here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Membership Resources If you want to know where Mike thinks the market is headed from here, you can either subscribe to the Market Forecaster or the Intelligent Investor.
Here we offer more evidence that no one in the world came remotely close to Mike Stathis in predicting the exact details of the financial crisis. What is truly shocking as much as it is unfortunate for investors is that his book, America’s Financial Apocalypse remains virtually unknown. Ask yourself why the media continues to ban the world’s leading investment expert while promoting con men who are always wrong.
This little episode is just one of many that point to massive fraud committed by the media in promoting clowns as experts. Below is an interview from a couple years ago by Josh "the clown" Brown for the fake news website Benzinga (there are two videos below which may begin to play autmatically, so you might want to pause them). I've mentioned Brown a few times in the past, but not nearly as much as I'd like due to time constraints (there's just too many idiots and snake oil salesmen out there for one man to expose). In addition to steering sheep into a huge array of stocks that have since collapsed, Brown has also been trying to convince people that he can show them how to use the financial media for their own benefit (laughs). He even wrote a book addressing this very topic. Imagine that, a guy hailed by CNBC as an investment "expert" (despite his questionable past and absence of solid credentials) who writes a book which doesn't explain real investment skills (perhaps because he is lacking in that department) but a book that pitches the idea that you should tune into the media. Note that the following horrendous calls by Brown are ONLY a random sample. We do not follow Brown nor do we watch CNBC so we believe he has a much larger number of terrible calls. This is the exact OPPOSITE of what I have been saying for many years. In my professional opinion, as a tenured financial professional having worked with individual investors, private equity and hedge funds, as well as venture capital firms, the financial media is the single biggest enemy of investors. In fact, avoiding the media is the single best thing every investor can do to invest successfully. Given that Brown is a marketing guy who essentially makes a living from his media exposure, the premise in his book appears to be focused more on self-preservation than anything else...
As someone who has been an active participant in the capital markets for nearly two decades, as well as a watchdog for Main Street exposing media spin and deception, consumer fraud, and securities manipulation, perhaps the single most important thing I have learned is the following:
That's right. Once again, Mike Stathis nailed the gold trade.
As subscribers of the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster are aware, AVA Investment Analytics Chief Investment Strategist, Mike Stathis first discussed a December 2015 interest rate hike in late 2014. And he never changed his tune, unlike all of the bozos who the Jewish Mafia promotes as experts. These clowns keep changing their forecast month after month. Anyone who followed the rate hike drama knows that these guys had been calling for a rate hike since early January 2014, and then March 2014, and then June 2014, and then September, and then October. You need to ask yourself this critical question: At what point does a "forecast" that keeps changing become useless? And when a rate hike didn't happen in October 2015, the conensus of economists forecast March 2016 as the first rate hike.
The streak of huge buyout deals continues for subscribers of Dividend Gems. Last year, Dividend Gems subscribers were rewarded with a similar 1-day premium of around 40% when Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway agreed to purchase Heinz.
America’s Financial Apocalypse remains as the most accurate, comprehensive and insightful investment book predicting a depression for the U.S. even nearly ten years after it was first published in 2006. Not only did it predict the Dow Jones Industrial Average collapsing to 6500 (which it did), the book's author, Mike Stathis also recommended investors begin buying into the Dow on March 2009. Prior to that time he had NOT issued a market buy recommendation. That's what you call a hit-miss ratio of 100%.
Jim Cramer has been manipulating securities and misleading the sheep who watch CNBC for many years. Yet, no one calls him out on his securities manipulation or horrendous calls, so you shouldn't expect anyone to point out the various levels of fraud that constantly show up on the scam network, CNBC.

For those of you who might be wondering if Mike finally missed a market downturn, after having accurately nailed every single selloff and rally since March 2009. The answer is NO. Mike has been warning precisely about what we recently experienced this week in the stock market. In fact, he has been stressing that China would continue to devalue the yuan, causing big problems for Asia and emerging markets. Accordingly, without going into too much detail, Mike has been advising his research clients to build a very large cash position for several months. What does the future hold for the capital markets? If you want to lose your ass, pay attention to the media. We have proven this to be the result. No one has a crystal ball, but if anyone knows it’s Mike Stathis. His forecasting record is already legendary. See for yourself below.
It's the same reason why the media keeps airing guys like Peter Schiff, Jim Rickards, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Jim Cramer, Doug Kass, Barry Ritholtz, Josh Brown, Dennis Gartman and countless other clowns (all of which are jewish by the way) with either no real track record or else completely miserable track records. Once you figure out the reason why the media keeps airing these guys all of which continue to be wrong over and over, year after year, you'll realize the reason is two-fold: Jewish nepotism (one of the most powerful weapons used by the Jewish mafia) and media fraud.
That's right folks. Once again, Mike Stathis nailed the market selloff before it began, helping to position his clients in cash.

First, I've added some annotated images (below) to refresh your memory regarding the campaign spearheaded by the "Three Stooges of Doom" whose objective was to extract money from naive suckers by pitching Puerto Rico as a place for Americans to relocate to. As you might already know, Puerto Rico filed for bankruptcy a year or two after these clowns launched their campaign to profit by peddling terrible advice. How many precious metals pumpers can you name that aren't Jewish? One? Maybe two? Now perform some simple math. Calculate the number of precious metals pumpers who are Jewish and compare that to the representation of Jews in the general population and tell me what you get. Answer: Another scam controlled by the Jewish mafia.
Over the past decade I have exposed most of the biggest gold-pumping, fear-mongering con artists in the world. In fact, I have been the only financial professional to have done so (check this site for many hundreds of exclusive articles and videos). Think about that. It deserves a good amount of thought and discussion. And it should point to the fact that the financial industry is largely comprised of a self-serving army of hucksters and parasites that seeks to extract money from the public based on lies and manipulation. After having exposed the majority of fear-mongering kingpins, it sometimes gets old when I run across someone I've not previously profiled because their song and dance is essentially the same as the others I've been exposing for more than a decade. I figure everyone should be able to spot these cons instantly if they have reviewed my previous material because it's quite educational. As such, you might understand why I really don't care to waste too much of my time picking apart the Jewish fear-mongering, broken clock clown named John Rubino. If you really want to understand the full extent of Rubino's game, all you need to do is check the other fear-mongering broken clocks I have featured over the years. It turns out that just about every single one of them is Jewish. That in itself is a very relevant topic of discussion which I have also previously discussed. The primary difference between Rubino and many other precious metals mouthpieces is that he serves as more of a promoter of gold-pumping clowns rather than speaking out so much himself. But he does his fair share of...

Overview After mounting a strong rebound over the past several months, commodities sold off strong in August due to lingering impact of the delta variant which has led to another phase of lock downs throughout the world. But commodities made an impressive rally moving into the final week of August. Advanced nations are progressing at a faster pace through the economic recovery. Although some of this progress is being neutralized by COVID-related issues seen in select emerging economies, global growth remains strong. Gold & Silver Gold and silver continue to experience low price volatility given easing fears of persistent inflation and a tame 10-year U.S. Treasury yield. Moving forward, traders should watch for
Opening Statement from the August 2021 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on August 1, 2021 (pre-market release) Oil & Gas On July 18, crude oil pricing collapsed after OPEC+ members agreed to boost output by 400,000 barrels per day on a monthly basis starting in August through 2022. Although the hike in output was largely expected in the prior month, traders gradually began to bet on delays in near-term output hikes due to the recent surge in Delta variant (coronavirus) infections, adding to the possibility of a slowing economy. Although we warned that such an announcement would be an exception to our July recommendation to buy in after selloffs (i.e. to treat downside as retracements) we...
Opening Statement from the July 2021 Dividend Gems Originally published on July 18, 2021 (pre-market release) Overview The U.S. economy is experiencing a reflationary surge due to pent-up demand. But persistence of supply chain bottlenecks and record-low interest rates could progress into a more lasting period of inflation down the road. We currently do not see any evidence to indicate this as a likely result. For the time being, relatively weak jobs data ensures the Fed is unlikely to raise interest rates in 2021. This is good news for equities investors, but bad news for fixed income investors. Jobs Data After two consecutive months of disappointing results, June Non-Farm Payrolls data came in better than expected at 850,000. Most of the 22 million jobs lost (between February and April 2020) in the U.S. due to the coronavirus pandemic have returned. But there are still 6.8 million fewer jobs now than prior to the onset of the pandemic-led recession (which officially began in February 2020). This is reasonable given the uncertainty from the travel and leisure sectors as well as brick-and-mortar retail. On the other hand, it is also important to note that since August 2020 the economy has recovered only 4 million jobs. Even though the unemployment rate has just come off the previous pandemic period low of 5.8% and stands at 5.9%, it remains relatively high especially when compared to the pre-pandemic low of 3.5% recorded from the February 2020 data. Meanwhile, inflation data remains on an uptrend because...
What do you get when you combine Porter Stansberry, David Morgan and Daniela Cambone, with a cheap car and YouTube? You get the typical gold-pumping, fear-mongering fake news disinfo horse shit spewed by a overweight and bloated Jewish con man, interviewed by a she male-looking Jewish faux reporter, published on a Jewish-run criminal organization by an infamous Jewish fraudster. To me, it looks like a typical Jewish media wedding. And we all know what that means. Lies, BS, and fake news. Note: I do not recommend wasting your time watching the full video unless: 1) You were already planning to waste your time watching trash TV, or 2) You plan to take a long dump and you're hoping that laughter will help you defecate more rapidly. If you really want to laugh your ass off, read the comment section. There you will see praise from the mentally ill/low IQ gold-pumping cult members.
In this 40 minute audio, Mike provides critical investment related insights.
Sit back and listen to the typical disinfo claims, bogus analogies, and scare tactics pitched by gold hucksters. As you listen to Zang explain why you should be scared out of mind holding stocks and fiat currency, try to answer the question she poses..."Do you trust Wall Street and the banks?" My answer is this. I trust them a helluva lot more than I trust any gold dealer.

I was perhaps the first person in the world to explain why it's virtually impossible for the US to experience hyperinflation. Even today many years later, I still have never read or heard anyone explain why hyperinflation in the US is impossible. And let me just say this. If you don't know why it's impossible for the US to experience hyperinflation, you've been wasting your time on disinformation and trash content. For those who doubt me, I'm willing to bet you aren't familiar with my track record, which is not surprising given that I've been banned for 15 years by the criminal media which seeks to exploit and defraud Main Street.

Folks, you really don't even need to do any research on Jon or Pete Najarian to realize they are used car salesmen. Just look at their cheesey clothing and jewelry. And once you hear Jon Najarian's sleazy, snake oil pitch (in the video below) it should be apparent he's trying to appeal to low-income, low-IQ, naive and desperate individuals who have no idea about investing or trading. After all, that would be the best group to market to if you have no real skills or valuable insights because they won't ever realize it. Folks, you know the saying...."You are judged by the company you keep." Not only was Najarian promoting the self-proclaimed "Crypto King" John Caruso in the videos below, take note the other Jewish clowns and cons he invited to his event (Peter Schiff, Jim Cramer, Kevin O'Leary and Pete Najarian). That's right. Every single one of these cons is Jewish. Why aren't any Gentiles involved? Like all of the other Jews promoted in the media as experts, the Najarians are clowns who leverage free media exposure to make money based on a manufactured perception that they are experts. The reality is very different. I've been exposing this type of fraud for more than a decade. The featured speakers at Najarian's event are not investment or trading experts. They're not investment authorities.They media celebrities. And they spend most of their time in sales and marketing in order to create the perception of expertise. They are snake oil salesmen. That should tell you the crowd Najarian was targeting; naive suckers who aren't able to realize the difference between a media celebrity who focuses on sales and marketing versus a real expert who has a long history of proven performance. Think about the exposure Caruso was able to get by teaming up with Najarian. Don't think Najarian simply featured Caruso at his event in Vegas. He was telling the world that Caruso was some kind of crypto money machine for several months. See here, here and here for more about Caruso. Given the criminal background of Caruso, I think it's advisable to conclude that Jon Najarian should never be trusted in any capacity for anything given that he never even bothered to run a simple background check on a guy he associated his business with. In the future I will be publishing much more detail on Jon Najarian's promotion of John Caruso, a cryptocurrency scammer who was running a Ponzi scheme. I'm also going to go over Najarian's terrible trading service which I believe is engaged in fraudulant marketing tactics. For now, you should note that neither Jon nor Pete Najarian has any professional trading or investment management experience as far as I am aware. Yet, they have been promoted on CNBC and elsewhere as trading and options experts for well over a decade. Ask yourself why.
Opening Statement from the June 2021 Dividend Gems Originally published on June 21, 2021 (pre-market release) U.S. Labor Force, Benefits, Wages & Inflation Despite the rapid progress made in the U.S recovery efforts, the jobs data have registered two consecutive months of disappointing results. But in fairness we believe consensus estimates were quite aggressive. Although most of the 22 million jobs lost (between February and April 2020) in the U.S. due to the coronavirus pandemic have returned, there are still 7.9 million fewer jobs now than prior to the onset of the pandemic. This is reasonable given the uncertainty from the travel and leisure sectors as well as brick-and-mortar retail. However, it is also important to note that since August 2020 the economy has recovered only 3.1 million jobs. Even though the unemployment rate has reached a pandemic period low of 5.8%, it remains relatively high especially when compared to the pre-pandemic low of 3.5% recorded from the February 2020 data. Meanwhile, inflation data remains on an uptrend because of pent-up demand as well as contributions from supply chain bottlenecks. In September 2020 the Federal Reserve announced that it did not expect to raise interest rates through at least the end of 2023. This forecast was based on its estimates of economic growth, employment, and inflation. Shortly thereafter, we stated

Opening Statement from the April 2021 Dividend Gems Originally published on April 18, 2021 Oil After experiencing a monster rally over the past several months, crude oil pricing has finally entered correction territory sparked by several moves from OPEC+. OPEC+ recently announced some changes to pricing and output noteworthy of mention. Inspired by the recovery progress being made in Asia, OPEC+ raised oil prices for delivery to Asian nations. In contrast, OPEC+ lowered pricing in the U.S. after agreeing to gradually boost output by 1.1 million bbl/day between May and July from cuts announced by Saudi Arabia in January. Earnings The
Although the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note remains in a strong uptrend, its appreciation has been more contained since the March issue. This is clearly good news for the stock market. As previously discussed in March, the rapid rise in the yield has been attributed to expectations of inflation by investors. The reality is that no one can know for certain why Treasury yields have risen because we do not know the reasoning of each investor who has sold bonds causing yields to increase. We believe the increase in Treasury bond yields is to be expected given the improvement in the economy rather than due to concerns about high levels inflation. Some investors may have sold bonds due to inflationary concerns. And this may have helped account for the rapid increase in the yield. But we believe the majority of investors sold treasury bonds for other reasons. Note that when
Opening Statement from the April 2021 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on April 4, 2021 (pre-market release) Overview As expected, commodities retreated last month as seen by the continuous commodities ETF, GCC after having mounted a tremendous rally through late-February. Meanwhile, Gold and silver remain in an intermediate-term bearish trend that began in the late-summer of 2020. It is important to note that the longer-term trend in gold remains bullish. With the $1.9 trillion stimulus package having been approved by Washington last month, President Biden is now focusing his efforts to get the much anticipated $2 trillion infrastructure package passed. Although the infrastructure bill is in our opinion less than what is needed, it would certainly provide some improvement to the nation’s outdated infrastructure as well much needed boost to employment.

Max Keiser has been in the business of creating fake news for well over a decade, but not by accident nor due to ignorance. Keiser is in the fake news business. Keiser entered the into the business of fake news well over a decade again in order to promote money-making scams for him and his gang of Jewish shysters. If you want an idea who these shysters are, simply examine the guests Keiser has featured on his low-budget fake news show, The Keiser Report which is broadcast by one of the titans of fake news, Russia Today. For several years now Max Keiser has reinforced a barrage of myths and disinformation created by the gold pumping syndicate of Jewish scam artists. He has also pulled the same kinds of campaigns promoting cryptocurrencies. Even if you're foolish enough to believe gold, silver or cryptocurrencies are legitimate investments, you need to understand that Keiser is promoting them in order to extract money from you directly and indirectly. He's even managed to create a few myths and scams of his own.
For more than a decade as part of my mission to expose the various tactics used by the financial media to fool main street, I have published numerous articles and videos exposing Jim Rogers as a clown, as well as a very reliable contrarian indicator. His economic and investment commentaries are as predictable as they are repetitive. That wouldn't be much of an issue if these commentaries were remotely accurate and helpful to investors. Based on my observations after going through hundreds of his interviews over the years, Jim Rogers is one of the worst sources of investment guidance aired by the media. But it's actually worse than that. I have no doubt that Jim Rogers is a con artist who deceives the public by exaggerating things while hiding relavant facts in order to profit. If I am correct, it implies that Rogers is using the media to commit fraud. Thus, the financial media is complicit. In this article I aim to show sufficient evidence backing my claims. But you are free to form your own conclusions. Regardless of the conclusions you arrive at, you should ask yourself a critical question. Despite being completely wrong about so many things for so many years, why is Jim Rogers constantly promoted by the financial media? While you’re at it, you may as well ask the same of other contrarian indicators like Peter Schiff, Harry Dent and scores of other broken clocks. Once you figure out the answer to this question you will understand how the media operates. Remember that the financial media claims that Jim Rogers is an “investment legend.” According to the financial media, Rogers is a great investor so you should listen to him. But of course this is just the hook meant to lure in fish who generate advertisement revenues for the media. Because Jim Rogers has never disclosed his personal investment performance we only have what he recommends during his interviews to determine whether or not he is a credible investor. Based on this account, it should be obvious that Rogers is not a great investor. In fact, he's a lousy investor. Rogers is plastered all over the media on a daily basis, much like hundreds of other Jewish clowns who are also promoted as investment experts despite being wrong most of the time. This emphasizes once again that if you pay attention to anyone promoted by the financial media you are certain to lose. The fact of the matter is that the media is a criminal industry designed to exploit people who fail to understand that the ad-based content model is a primary component of the Jewish mafia's criminal business model. Please read through the detailed remarks in the images below to refresh your memory on Rogers' track record.
I exposed Ron Paul as a huge scam artist many years ago when he was fooling the masses with his complete pointless and distracting "End the Fed" message. Why is the "End the Fed" rant pointless and distracting? Because one should focus on things they might possibly affect change rather than obsessing on things that they have no chance whatsoever in changing. Focusing on things that stand zero chance of changing actually serves to distract from real issues that matter and that might be changed. For instance, Ron Paul could have focused on the constant failures of securities regulators to prosecute billionaire criminals who commit various forms of securities fraud. He could also focus his attention on the fact that the hedge fund and private equities industries are stealing massive amounts from pension plans. But Paul wouldn't go after Wall Street because his purpose is to pretend to want to help the people. The past thing Ron Paul would do is bite the hand that feeds him. You see, Ron Paul has turned into a penny stock, copywriting scam artist working for the world's biggest copywriting boiler room and scam center in the world. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to review the details of the psychological tactics behind his "End the Fed" campaign here. But a review of the following video might refresh your memory. Ron Paul and Many Other Frauds EXPOSED Ron Paul has also been aligned with the gold pumping syndicate of con artists and frauds for decades. As a part of his duties, Ron Paul has been scaring his naive cult members out of the longest stock bull market in U.S. history from day one. Moreover, as a paid employee of boiler room operation Agora Financial and Porter Stansberry, Ron Paul has even lied many times about Stansberry, claiming he has a great track record. This represents pure fraud by both Ron Paul and Porter Stansberry. I will show you direct evidence of this claim shortly. The following article is a follow-up to one that I published a few years ago. Ron Paul: Paid Whore for Scam Artist Porter Stansberry Even before I wrote the aforementioned article, I exposed Ron Paul and his various disinformation statements regarding healthcare and the economy several years ago. Ron Paul: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 1) Ron Paul: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 2) I also exposed Ron Paul's "End the Fed" and "The government is bad" con game soon after. I never fell for Ron Paul because his tactics were too obvious to me. If you fell for Ron Paul, you've probably fallen for many other con artists. By the way, if you would like some help clearing your mind, the single best way I know of is to become a member of this website. I cannot tell you how many times members and clients have emailed us sharing their story of how our content has made them a better, smarter and more aware person. And as much as Ron Paul has served as a gold pumper throughout the years, one would have assumed that at least some of his supporters would have checked into his investment performance to see whether he was at least a reasonable investor given that all members of congress are required to reveal their investment holdings. But of course, sheep never seem to ask the right questions because they lack the most basic human ability that sets us apart from wild animals. Critical reasoning. That is why they are sheep. I checked Ron Paul's investment performance several years ago published an article revealing that it's been a disaster. His investment portfolio has consisted only of precious metals. And they've all been losers. Ron Paul, Investment Disaster As far as I know, I was the first person to expose Ron Paul. That isn't something to boast about. Instead, it points to a very problematic society that's filled with people who are fooled by hucksters like Ron Paul as well as more rational people on the other side of the fence who know he's a charlatan, but can't pinpoint specifically why or else refuse to point it out. A simple search on our website will reveal numerous articles and videos I've published revealing Ron Paul's disinformation, his various fear-mongering con games and his motives. One thing I will point to as a key focal point of many scams and scam artists is their affiliation with the so-called "libertarian" mindset. If there is indeed a bigger farce today than the libertarian pitch, I cannot identify it. However, so-called man-made climate change narrative is certainly a worthy contender. Now if you aren't sure of what I mean by the "libertarian pitch" as well as the various scams associated with it, you should search through our website because I've covered it quite a few times. Imagine if you were to build your entire political career based on telling the people that the government is bad. Do I need to point out that this pitch is designed to get suckers to vote for you so you can be part of the government! That's what I call exploiting a bunch of gullible saps.
As you can see, this pitch by "demographics doomsday" Dent was dated April 3, 2019. So that means investors had until early August 2019 to safeguard against the "collapse." Before I tear into Dent, let me state that it is impossible to attach a specific time frame to a possible stock market collapse. When any such claims have been made, unless the individual adds that the time frame is only a guess I consider the claim to be completely bogus. As you know, there was no collapse. Dent has been predicting a collapse in the US stock market month after month, year after year. Yet, still after all of these years Dent has managed to actually MISS previous market collapses! Based on assessing his warnings/predictions/fear-mongering marketing campaigns and media appearances for more than a decade, Dent has been completely wrong month after month, year after year about the stock market. Harry Dent is clearly a fear-mongering broken clock con who seeks to scare the living daylights out of people so they will fork over their hard earned money in exchange for his twisted guidance. Quite simply, Harry Dent is one of the best contrarian indicators in the world, along with Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Jim Rogers and the rest of the fear-mongering charlatans. Remember that this is the same man who not only missed the financial crisis, he rushed to release a book at the market bottom in 2009 warning a depression was ahead, thereby scaring investors from not only buying into the stock market at the bottom, but also potentially causing investors to remain out of the market since that time for fear of a depression. Finally, you should note that even though Dent had no clue about the financial crisis, his media tribesmen provided him with mass exposure during that period. And he claimed that the financial crisis was the direct result of demographics!!! I wonder how many more suckers were hooked by Dent's garbage. Perhaps you need a refresher on Dent and his horrendous track record before we present Dent's market collapse demographic dog crap. After you read the message below, make sure to listen to Mike's call to Dent's boiler room. Although the employee is on a phone that mutes background noise, at some point you might be able to hear the background chatter resembling a call center. Make no mistake. Dent has dozens of people manning the phones which should give you an indication how many people are clicking his ads, watching his fear-mongering bull shit and receiving his email pitches. Like all copywriting hucksters, Dent is running an elaborate internet marketing scheme which masqurades itself to be a research firm.
Jeff Berwick was one of many smaller minions who piggy-backed off of more visible con artists who created cults of nut cases in order to make huge money selling gold and silver. Check out the video below. Imagine you were naive enough to have believed Berwick's fear-mongering nonsense. Imagine how much money you would have lost if you used your fiat (which Berwick claimed would be worthless in a few years) to buy gold. Imagine how you'd feel if you missed out on the longest bull market in history because you listened to Berwick. And let's not forget that just about all of these charlatans are Jewish. That raises an entirely different set of issues which addresses the big picture. No one has explained the big picture beter than Mike Stathis. Hopefully by now you realize that it pays to arm yourself with the right insights. If you fall prey to one or more of the countless con artists out there you could face dire consequences, not the least of which might be huge losses.
Opening Statement from the March 2021 Dividend Gems Originally published on March 14, 2021 Over the past couple of months we have been highlighting the fact that investors have not been rewarding positive earnings surprises nor have they been punishing negative earnings surprises by as much as in previous months (see the Intelligent Investor). It should also be noted that investors have bought up shares several days/weeks prior to earnings but sold even shares even when a strong earnings beat was reported. Thus, over the past couple of months a strong earnings beat was already factored into stock prices which led to profit taking upon release of earnings. This is an important consideration for...
Opening Statement from the March 2021 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on March 3, 2021 (pre-market release) Consistent with our forecasts from the Intelligent Investor, the yield on the 10-year US Treasury Note has soared. A couple of months ago we discussed that the 10-year yield was likely to reach 1.50% in 2021 and perhaps 2.00%. Even though the yield is currently at 1.47%, it still remains quite low from a historical standpoint. But it has been the rapid rise in the yield that has led to increased volatility in the capital markets. It has also led to concerns over inflation. Recall that rising inflation is generally bullish for commodities pricing while very bearish for bonds. Incidentally, the impact of inflation on equities is not so clear cut. The soaring 10-year yield has also fueled the recent rally in the USD. So why has the yield on the 10-year Treasury risen? Investors expect inflation to increase which could pressure the Fed to raise interest rates...

Opening Statement from the March 2021 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on March 1, 2021 (pre-market release) Overview Despite numerous uncertainties regarding coronavirus variants and effectiveness of approved vaccines against these variants, the global economy continues to show marked improvements. These improvements are largely the result of a reduction in the number, severity and duration of economic lockdowns. Moreover, massive amounts of economic and monetary stimulus have also aided the recovery. Moving forward, further improvements to the global economy will depend largely on the effectiveness of the various COVID vaccines against all coronavirus variants. Expectations for a robust global recovery can be seen by noting the recent surge in the commodities index EFT, GCC. Much of the recent rise in GCC has been due to the very strong rally seen in crude oil. The rapid rise in the 10-year US Treasury yield has also contributed indirectly to the rally in GCC. In the US, the highly debated COVID stimulus bill ($1.9 trillion) was finally passed by the House (as expected) on Saturday and will most likely pass the Senate in coming days after some modest revisions have been made. Once this stimulus is passed, we expect the global capital markets to regain some strength. Although the equities markets have other issues that have accounted for recent weakness, we expect passage of the stimulus to be bullish for most commodities. Finally, note that the IMF boosted 2021 economic growth for the US to 5.5 percent in its January World Economic Outlook Update. Other than Japan, the US was the only advanced economy to receive upward projections for 2021 growth. Meanwhile, all other advanced economies received lowered projections. In contrast, emerging Asia is expected to lead the road to recovery in 2021, with India (IMF est. GDP growth of 8.8 percent) followed by China (IMF est. GDP growth of 8.2 percent). Although estimates for a strong recovery in China offer an especially bullish case for global commodities demand...
For background material on this piece, please refer to the following link Mike Stathis Was Right AGAIN When He Exposed the Build the Wall GoFundMe Campaign as a Scam When it comes to exposing fraud (e.g. securities, media, corporate and consumer fraud) detecting scams and exposing the mechanisms used by scam artists, Mike's track record remains unblemished since he began his crusade more than a decade ago. From the onset, Mike was certain that Brian Kolfage's "We Fund the Wall" GoFundMe campaign was established for the purpose of defrauding individuals by use of a political talking point. He even mentioned that such ploys should be against the terms of service of GoFundMe. Mike noted that the campaign seemed illegal and should have been axed by GoFundMe. But of course it wasn't because GoFundMe is nothing more than a criminal organization that facilitates scams because it receives a cut from each scam that's funded. To date, GoFundMe has never been held accountable for a single instance of the thousands of cases of fraud that the site has facilitated. Once the campaign raised a large sum of money, Kolfage (probably) began to receive some scrutiny. So he realized the need to bring some high profile, pro-Trump figures into the mix. Among others, Kolfage reached out to Steve Bannon. Apparently, Kolfage and Bannon conspired (along with others) to extract large sums of money from "We Build the Wall" donations for personal use. See Steve Bannon Is Charged With Fraud in We Build the Wall Campaign. Unfortunately, many of the same individuals who fell for the Kolfage-Bannon "We Fund the Wall" scam have also been duped by dubious claims and false narratives from an army of disinformation clowns like Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, Mike Maloney, Porter Stansberry, Doug Casey, Harry Dent, David Stockman, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, John McAfee, Jordan Peterson, as well as hundreds of other gate keepers, shills, liars, idiots and agents of controlled opposition. A full list of the most influencial disinformation deviants is too long to post. But we have previously exposed many of these individuals. Moreover, many of the same individuals who fell for the Kolfage-Bannon Fund "We Fund the Wall" scam also fell for the countless gold and silver scams, alt-right scam, the tea party scam, the libertarian con, the FIRE movement scam, digital nomad scam, the “End the Fed” scam, countless cryptocurrency scams and so on. Are you beginning to see a pattern here?
As more individuals are becoming interested in the biosciences due to the coronavirus pandemic, I felt this might be a good time to release an outline of a course I created and taught on biotechnology nearly two decades ago. Attached is an abbreviated outline (45-page document) of a university course I created in 2001 and taught at Southern Methodist University (otherwise known as SMU) on biotechnology. To the best of my knowledge this course was the most comprehensive of its kind in the world. This was an advanced crash course on biotechnology intended for patent attorneys, consultants, angel investors, venture capitalists and anyone else seeking to gain a broad understanding about the potentials of biotechnology. Enrollment in the course ranged from patent agents and biosciences consultants to chemistry professors and venture capitalists. The course was quite intense, consisting of seven three/four-hour sessions. It was presented during the summer session of the 2002 academic year at a time when biotechnology was experiencing its second bubble period. Some might note that a few topics remain quite advanced even today (e.g. biochips, nanomedicine, telemedicine, bioenergetics). Not included in this outline are more than 200 figures taken from various graduate level texts showing many of the concepts presented in this lecture series. Although I have the precise figures used for the lecture series, I currently do not have access to these figures. As you examine the outline it is imperative to keep in mind that the material presented is the result of a multidisciplinary approach I have taken. Thus, to many individuals it might be nearly impossible to understand on a detailed level without having prior knowledge of the subject matter or without the type of explanation that was provided during the lecture series.

Opening Statement from the February 2021 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on February 3, 2021 (pre-market release) Putting Global Debt into Proper Context Fiscal stimulus totaling $14 trillion related to the coronavirus pandemic has swelled global public debt to an estimated 98% of GDP in 2020. While this is certainly concerning, keep in mind that as GDP growth recovers, this measure of debt will decline. Furthermore, this high level of debt does not...
Opening Statement from the February 2021 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on January 31, 2021 Overview In addition to significant morbidity and mortality, the coronavirus pandemic resulted in a severe contraction in global economic output followed by a sharp decline in government and corporate revenues. The unprecedented level of emergency programs launched by governments across the globe have caused government deficits and debts to rise to levels far beyond those recorded during the global financial crisis. We see a similar situation with central bank stimulus. Production and distribution of the currently approved coronavirus vaccines are facing some issues. Moreover, uncertainty is rising regarding coronavirus mutations and possible vaccine side effects. Regardless, the progress in vaccine rollout as well as anticipation of a return to normalcy continues to fuel investor and consumer optimism. When we first detailed the impact of the pandemic in mid-March 2020, we emphasized that no amount of stimulus would provide a lasting solution. Officials were focused on stimulus because they did not think a vaccine would be ready until late 2021 at best. We realized that the discovery of a safe and effective vaccine was the only solution. We also stated that we believed a vaccine would be discovered and ready by late 2020. Now that we have left what will be remembered as one of the worst years in recent memory, things are looking relatively better. All nations are expected to deliver at least a sizable rebound in growth compared to 2020. U.S. 2020 full year GDP growth is expected to have suffered the worst decline since the immediate aftermath of WWII at -3.5% (U.S. 2021 GDP growth is expected to be 5.1%). As bad as this looks, the fact is that the U.S. economy fared much better than most other nations. Overall, most nations suffered either the worst economic contraction on record or the worst since the WWII era. Specifically, SE Asia was hit particularly hard, but the region is expected to mount a strong recovery in 2021, with India leading the world at 11.5% according to the IMF’s January 2021 update (up from the previous 8.8% from its October 2020 WEO). Meanwhile China is expected to grow its economy by 8.1% (down from the previous 8.2% estimate by the IMF in October 2020). Putting Global Debt into Proper Context Fiscal stimulus totaling $14 trillion related to the coronavirus pandemic has swelled global public debt to an estimated 98% of GDP in 2020. While this is certainly concerning, keep in mind that as the GDP growth rate recovers, this measure of debt will decline. Furthermore, this high level of debt does not...
Opening Statement from the January 2021 Dividend Gems Originally published on January 17, 2021 Earnings Based on the market close as of January 15, 2021, the P/E ratio of the S&P 500 is now 22.4. While this is certainly a high P/E ratio that is not sustainable long term... Q4 2020 earnings estimates have improved drastically over the past several weeks. Currently, estimates for Q4 ’20 stand at -6.8% (versus -8.8% last month). The most recent improvement in earnings estimates was due to the boost generated from the financial industry. Specifically, large earnings beats by JP Morgan and Citigroup lifted the financial sector as well as full year S&P 500 estimates for 2020...
Opening Statement from the January 2021 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on January 6, 2021 (pre-market release) Coronavirus Risks In late March 2020 I expressed my confidence that a vaccine would be developed before the end of 2020. This view was in stark contrast to all of the “experts” who insisted that a vaccine would not be developed until mid-2021 (best-case) or late 2021 (consensus). In addition to our recommendations in March 2020 (special webinars and securities research) to overweigh large cap pharma and biopharma stocks, I selected Moderna (MRNA) as the best risk-reward newer small cap biotech as one to consider investing in. Since then, it rose by nearly 600 percent. I also warned about potential issues with vaccines as well as the likelihood of mutations during the March 2020 coronavirus webinar presentations. Just as I predicted in March 2020, we are now seeing different strains of coronavirus due to mutations. We do not yet know how effective the vaccines will be against COVID-19. But clearly, the appearance of mutations has already presented a significant risk moving forward. In March 2020 I also began to discuss the risk of vaccine reluctance from significant numbers of certain populations (especially in the U.S). Although many concerns about the safety of the vaccines are valid, there is a particularly large and growing movement of disinformation from conspiracy nuts and profiteers. If you follow the content on our website you know who some of these individuals are.
Opening Statement from the January 2021 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on January 3, 2021 Overview Despite suffering from one of the most severe recessions in history, the global macroeconomic outlook has continued to improve ever since the summer of 2020. Assuming a reasonable rollout of several coronavirus vaccines by summer 2021, we expect demand for commodities to continue to pick up as economies head closer to normal conditions. While the overwhelming consensus of economists and analysts expected a so-called “V-shaped” recovery, early on we emphasized that a recovery would take much longer than expected. Signs of recovery from the COVID-19 recession only began to materialize by Q3 2020. Despite overwhelming optimism as expressed by investors, a full economic recovery has a long way to go and will be accompanied by many significant risks. Even the IMF has only recently admitted that 2021 will only provide a partial recovery from the COVID-19 recession which officially began in February 2020. Interest Rates and Commodity Prices On September 16, 2020, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell stated the Fed’s intention to keep short-term interest rates at current levels (near 0 percent) until (at least) the end of 2023. The Fed’s expectations for interest rates rely largely on its estimates for inflation. Accordingly, Powell stated that inflation is not likely to meet the Fed’s target of 2 percent until the end of 2023. Powell also reminded investors that the Fed plans to allow inflation to moderately exceed the Fed’s target in order to compensate for prior periods of low inflation. USD We believe the USD will remain weak at least through the first few months of 2021. Whether or not the dollar enters a recovery in the second half of 2021 will depend on several factors. Oil After entering a bearish trend in March 2020, continued weakness in the USD helped to put a bottom in oil prices after collapsing to multi-decade lows. As you will recall, on April 20, 2020 the May 2020 WTI crude oil futures contracts collapsed to -$40. Although oil demand is expected to firm up from 2020, pricing remains largely under the control of OPEC. As you might recall, in July 2020 after economic lockdowns caused oil pricing to collapse, OPEC agreed to cut oil output to lows not seen since 1991. Prior to the latest wave of COVID-19 outbreaks, members of the OPEC+ alliance planned to reduce daily production cuts from 7.7 mbpd to 5.8 mbpd. But by early December 2020, despite positive news regarding coronavirus vaccines, members of the OPEC+ alliance tentatively agreed to reduce daily production cuts by only 500,000 bpd, or from 7.7 mbpd to 7.2 mbpd moving into 2021. These agreements are expected to be finalized when members meet on January 4...

Opening Statement from the December 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on December 20, 2020
Opening Statement from the December 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on December 10, 2020 (pre-market release) The month of November was marked by a tremendous boost in sentiment resulting in a very strong rally in global capital markets. After experiencing a selloff in late-October, many commodities mounted a solid rebound in November commencing with the U.S. “election rally.” On Monday, November 2 the capital markets entered what would later progress into a very strong rally after having sold off in the final days of October in anticipation of the U.S. elections. The trifecta of positive vaccine news from Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/Oxford delivered in three weekly installments led to tremendous gains in the capital markets for November, as investors see the latest coronavirus vaccine progress as the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. Just as the election rally began to run out of steam, on Monday November 9, Pfizer/BioNTech announced positive efficacy and safety data from phase 3 trials of its coronavirus vaccine. The following Monday on November 16, Modern announced similar results. Finally, on Monday November 23, AstraZeneca/Oxford released the results of its phase 3 coronavirus vaccine. While efficacy of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine is substantially lower than that of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the price is significantly lower and does not have stringent storage requirements unlike the case with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines. As you can imagine, since the first positive vaccine development was announced on November 9, crude oil pricing has surged. Crude oil price momentum remains strong as investors are now able to envision more clear signs of economic recovery in 2021. In contrast, gold and silver pricing have weakened and remain in an intermediate-term bear trend, as previously forecast. The boost in sentiment fueled by progress in coronavirus vaccines has overshadowed the trend...

Opening Statement from the December 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on December 6, 2020 The month of November was marked by a tremendous boost in sentiment resulting in a very strong rally in global capital markets. After experiencing a selloff in late-October, many commodities mounted a solid rebound in November commencing with the U.S. election rally. On Monday, November 2 (the day after release of the November CCPM Forecaster) the capital markets entered what would later progress into a very strong rally after having sold off in the final days of October in anticipation of the U.S. elections. As some readers might recall, in the October 2020 Intelligent Investor we discussed our view that it did not matter who won the election because investors had already taken a bullish stance moving into 2021 for a variety of reasons, none of which relied on who the next U.S. president would be. Although the election results were not immediately apparent, investors were more focused on fundamental issues fueling the capital markets in 2021, including a continuation of very low interest rates, successful development and distribution of one or more coronavirus vaccines, and continued progress on the economic recovery. This optimism is being reflected in the capital markets...
Decide for yourself what you think the truth is. One thing is certain. When the Jewish media portrays someone as a "great human being" you can bet it's far from the truth.
The following video shows how investors have been lied to and deceived by the media and it's so-called experts, while banning the world's leading investment mind. Wake up. You're being ripped off by the Jewish-run, criminally insane media and its business partners.
Opening Statement from the November 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on November 15, 2020 Overview Over the past few weeks Europe has experienced an accelerated rate of new COVID-19 cases. In response officials have announced a reintroduction of lockdown measures which are likely to intensify in coming weeks as winter takes hold. Germany has announced a four-week lockdown of bars, restaurants, and movie theaters. Meanwhile, France is under a more comprehensive lockdown partly due to recent violence. Italy is also seeing a worrisome resurgence in COVID-19 cases but has thus far only imposed restrictions on bars and restaurants. Many other EU member nations have reintroduced a variety of lockdown measures and restrictions that are likely to intensify in coming weeks. The U.S. is also experiencing a resurgence of COVID-19 cases. This has led to reintroduction of limited lockdown measures in many states. Although COVID-19 resurgence is worse in Europe, it appears as if the U.S. will soon catch up to and perhaps surpass the situation in Europe. China is the first major economy to recover from COVID-19. But a small handful of new cases in two Chinese cities have prompted officials to initiate intense lockdown measures, while most of the country remains unaffected. We do not anticipate the Chinese economy will lose much if any momentum through the end of the year. In recent months, many nations have debated whether to introduce additional stimulus to combat the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 lockdowns. The recent resurgence in COVID-19 cases has made the chance of additional stimulus much more likely, especially in Europe. The timing behind the stimulus is the big question. The resurgence of COVID-19 cases has adversely impacted the capital markets. Notably, global stock markets sold off in response to resurgence in COVID-19 cases. But equities markets recently bottomed and are in midst of a strong rally fueled by hopes of an effective vaccine against coronavirus. U.S. 2020 3Q GDP growth was reported at 33.1%, representing the largest quarterly gain on record. Estimates for Q4 GDP are less certain, ranging between 3% and 7%. The wide range of estimates for Q4 GDP reflects the uncertainty and timing of another stimulus package... Earnings We published our latest estimate of 2020 full year earnings growth for the S&P 500 at -15% in the October 2020 issue of Dividend Gems. Earnings results continue to beat consensus estimates at a significantly higher pace than what we have seen over the past several years... We believe this trend of strong earnings beats will persist through at least Q4 2020. As such, we are lowering our 2020 full year earnings growth estimate to -14%. Market Overview After experiencing a significant selloff two weeks before the U.S. presidential election, the U.S. stock market mounted a strong rally in the days prior to, during and after the election. This rally was felt throughout the globe reaching most equities markets...

Opening Statement from the October 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on October 18, 2020 Overview After facing a modest correction in September, the stock market has recovered rapidly. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq are now close to testing record-highs made on September 2...
Opening Statement from the October 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on October 7, 2020 Economy The slow pace of improvements in the U.S. labor market serves as one of many indicators confirming our long-held view that recovery from the COVID-induced global recession will be long and difficult. As further evidence of this claim, on October 2 the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an increase of only 661,000 jobs in September, which was less that the 800,000 estimate. Although the unemployment rate fell from 8.5% the previous month to 7.9%, much of the decline was due to jobless workers no longer being counted. The September jobs data also revealed a sizable increase in long-term unemployment (a duration of 27 weeks or more) of 781,000, raising the total to 2.4 million. Moreover, 7.3 million workers have now been without a job for at least 15 weeks. Although the economy added 4.8 million jobs in June...

Opening Statement from the October 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on October 4, 2020 (pre-market release) Economy The slow pace of improvements in the U.S. labor market serves as one of many indicators confirming our long-held view that recovery from the COVID-induced global recession will be long and difficult. As further evidence of this claim, on October 2 the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an increase of only 661,000 jobs in September, which was less that the 800,000 estimate.

Moreover, 7.3 million workers have now been without a job for at least 15 weeks. Although the economy added 4.8 million jobs in June, 1.8 million in July and 1.5 million in August, the U.S. economy is still down 10.7 million jobs from where it was in February, before the impact of the pandemic. We reiterate our view that up to one-third of the lost jobs will never return. As well, we believe the economic recovery is going to take much longer than most people realize. Most of the long-term unemployed continue to receive extended unemployment benefits which will run out by the end of 2020. However, another round of economic stimulus is all but certain. On September 30, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released its final estimate of GDP for 2Q at 31.4%, for the largest contraction on record, down from 31.7% in the previous month’s estimate. Although the expected rebound in 3Q GDP to (current estimates range between 22% and 25%) will officially end the recession, there is no way...
Opening Statement from the September 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on September 13, 2020 Interest Rates: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Once again, we would like to remind readers that interest rates are likely to remain very low for an extended period. We have been forecasting very low rates for several years. Fed Chairman Powell’s recent speech confirmed our notion of the Fed’s intention to keep rates low despite numerous global macro risks that have grown as a result of persistently low interest rates. An extended period of low interest rates has many implications for the capital markets. First and foremost, as you might imagine low interest rates bodes well for dividend investors. The past decade has already been one of the best in history for dividend investors. The next decade is likely to produce comparable results. Low interest rates have also created numerous problems. Several years of record-low interest rates has served as a catalyst for a variety of speculative behaviors. Overall, risk is not being adequately recognized in part because it has become virtually impossible to measure with any degree of confidence. We have reminded readers that the stock market continues to reach new highs even though the world remains in the most severe recession on record. The masses have latched onto indexing and other forms of passive investing such as robo advisers as the “easy solution” to obtain superior investment returns. Aside from potential liquidity issues, passive investing has all but eliminated the vital role of fundamental analysis and securities valuation. Moreover, greater access to stocks via mobile apps and fractional shares has been multiplied by the malignant impact of social media to lure millions of clueless youngsters into the stock market, transforming it into a casino of sorts. Finally, the wave of speculative behaviors seen in the equities market has been accentuated by recent changes to securities laws which now permit private equity funds (which lack the stringent transparency and regulatory oversight seen in publicly traded companies) to solicit investments directly to the public. The decade-long search for yield has forced institutions to seek out higher-risk investments. As one example...
Opening Statement from the September 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on September 2, 2020 Overview Investors continue to express what we believe is an overly excessive level of optimism regarding expectations of a so-called “V-shaped” economic recovery. Much of this upbeat sentiment has been boosted further in recent weeks due to rising progress in the race to develop an efficacious COVID-19 vaccine. But even with the unprecedented level of monetary and economic stimulus provided thus far, global growth is sitting at record lows with very little clarity in sight. If we assume a best-case scenario for... U.S. Economy Although the pace of job losses has declined significantly from record-highs made in April, jobs continue to be shed at record pace. As of August 2, more than 50 million jobs have been lost as a result of the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. As COVID-19 cases have resurfaced, many states and cities have once again shut down restaurants, bars, churches and other public venues. As long as officials prevent normal economic activity, more jobs will continue to be lost. Once again this underscores the importance of developing an effective vaccine. As a reminder, Q1 GDP growth came in at -5.0% (final revision). But we stated since March that Q2 would be the big number to watch for. Recently, Q2 GDP data were released. Not far from our estimates, Q2 GDP growth came in at a record low of -32.9 percent marked by a huge drop in consumption. The collapse in consumption was largely expected due to the shuttering of much of the service economy. As bad as the collapse in Q2 GDP was, it was better than consensus estimates from the street of 34.9 percent. As a reminder, our upper end estimate for Q2 GDP growth from May was -35 percent. We raised our estimates ...
Opening Statement from the September 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on August 31, 2020 (pre-market release) U.S. Economy The absence of consistent improvements in the U.S. labor market serves as one of many indicators confirming our long-held view that recovery from the COVID-induced global recession will be long and difficult. Notably, during the period of recovery additional risks could materialize thereby adding further strain to recovery efforts. Aside from shorter-term variables which might impact commodities pricing, it is important to keep in mind that interest rates are likely to remain very low for an extended period as a reflection of reduced output. Changes to Monetary Policy On August 27, Fed Chairman Powell announced a new strategy to address persistent undershooting of the Fed’s inflation target. Although the Fed’s inflation target is 2%, moving forward the Fed will allow inflation to rise higher than 2% for some undetermined time period in order to boost the overall average inflation rate to 2% over the past several years. Powell’s rational for the change in monetary policy is based on his claim that the persistently low average inflation rate has caused a series of economic problems. Fed also expects the move will boost employment. However, we believe it has been persistently low interest rates (which have been the response from the Fed to combat low inflation) which have led to numerous economic problems, not low inflation. Moreover, the current high unemployment rate has nothing to do with inflation. Remember that officials shut down the economy and this caused job losses. In reality, low inflation is good for the economy and it is good for consumers. But low inflation does not mandate low interest rates unless you are trying to raise inflation. Thus, interest rates could...
Opening Statement from the August 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on August 16, 2020
Opening Statement from the August 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on August 5, 2020 U.S. Economy Although the pace of job losses has declined significantly from record-highs made in April, jobs continue to be shed at record pace. As of August 2, more than 50 million jobs have been lost as a result of the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. As COVID-19 cases have resurfaced, many states and cities have once again shut down restaurants, bars, churches and other public venues. As long as officials prevent normal economic activity, more jobs will continue to be lost. Once again this underscores the importance of developing an effective vaccine. As a reminder, Q1 GDP growth came in at -5.0% (final revision). But we stated since March that Q2 would be the big number to watch for. Recently, Q2 GDP data were released. Not far from our estimates, Q2 GDP growth came in at a record low of -32.9 percent marked by a huge drop in consumption. The collapse in consumption was largely expected due to the shuttering of much of the service economy. As bad as the collapse in Q2 GDP was, it was better than consensus estimates from the street of 34.9 percent. As a reminder, our upper end estimate for Q2 GDP growth from May was -35 percent. We raised our estimates to 35 percent to 45 percent in June while stating that we really had very little confidence in these estimates. Keep in mind that the data is from an early release and is thus subject to further revision in coming months. Q3 GDP growth is certain to represent a significant improvement from Q2 data. According to the latest estimates from the Atlanta Federal Reserve, U.S. Q3 GDP is expected rebound to 11.9 percent. But this estimate is based largely on expectations of reopening the economy. Due to resurgence in COVID-19 infections, we are now seeing closures of restaurants, bars and other establishments in key states such as California, Texas and Florida. If this trend continues it is likely to contain any rebound in growth from Q2 data. In short, based on what we see currently, we believe the estimate from the Atlanta Fed is quite optimistic.
Opening Statement from the August 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on August 3, 2020 (pre-market release) Overview Investors continue to express what we believe is an overly excessive level of optimism regarding expectations of a so-called “V-shaped” economic recovery. Much of this upbeat sentiment has been boosted further in recent weeks due to rising progress in the race to develop an efficacious COVID-19 vaccine. But even with the unprecedented level of monetary and economic stimulus provided thus far, global growth is sitting at record lows with very little clarity in sight. If we assume a best-case scenario for resolution to the economic collapse caused by the irresponsible response to the COVID-19 pandemic, things do not look particularly promising for the foreseeable future. If an effective vaccine is developed before the end of 2020 (an expectation we have held since March) it will still take many months to produce the vaccine in sufficient quantities. And it will require an even longer period to inoculate billions of people around the world with this vaccine. But even after everyone has been inoculated with a COVID-19 vaccine, things have already changed forever moving forward. COVID-19 ushered in a watershed event much like how the attacks on the World Trade Center introduced the world to a new and more restricted way of life as a result of the “war on terror.” This is a separate discussion to be reserved for another time....
Opening Statement from the July 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on July 19, 2020 Big Picture It is important to remember that the current economic collapse has been caused by reckless politicians, corporate bureaucrats, and the media. If the truth is ever acknowledged, we believe the global COVID-19 hysteria created by establishment figureheads will be viewed as the largest man-made economic disaster in world history. And now, racial riots in the U.S. are coinciding with an upswing in COVID-19 cases. Recurrences and lingering effects of the coronavirus are issues we warned about since March. It is important to keep in mind that all measures taken by central bankers and government officials in response to the economic crisis are only serving to buy time. We continue to believe the only solution to the COVID-19 recession will come when a vaccine has been developed. However, the racial issues will only get worse over time because that is the objective of those pulling the strings....
Opening Statement from the July 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on July, 2020 Overview As a result of the unprecedented support from Washington and the Fed, equities investors have generally discounted many of the longer-term risks stemming from the COVID-19 economic shutdown. Perhaps the only consideration made by investors for ongoing risks has been reflected in their strong preference for high-tech stocks which are viewed as less risky with respect to COVID-related risks. Accordingly, the Nasdaq continues to hit new record highs. In some regard, price multiples have expanded as a result of the persistent low interest rate environment. Even after factoring in this important consideration, we believe many earnings estimates are excessive. Regardless, moving forward, we believe the big tech names (AAPL, MSFT, NFLX, AMZN, NFLX, PYPL, etc.) will continue to outperform. Finally, drug makers and biotech firms should also perform well for obvious reasons. A low interest rate environment creates a challenging investment environment for dividend investors. The problem of low interest rates is most apparent for retirees and other investors seeking safe investments with reasonable yields. As we have emphasized for several years, this is a golden period for dividend investors who are able to minimize risk while navigating economic turbulence. Thus, we strongly recommend Dividend Gems as a supplement to the Intelligent Investor. ..
Opening Statement from the July 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on July 6, 2020 (pre-market release) The “Geniuses” Finally Declare Recession On June 9, the NBER listed February 2020 as the official start of the COVID-19 related recession in the U.S. As discussed in special webinars held in March (in addition to the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster) we have been in a global recession since mid-March. We also expected the impact from the response to COVID-19 to result in a record-low collapse in GDP for many nations. Finally, in early April we stated that most economic data from around the globe would be “off the charts.” This is precisely what we have seen. Adding to the uncertainty of this unprecedented period which was already facing trade-related risks, criticism is growing regarding China’s handling of the coronavirus. This friction is likely to impede progress in U.S.-China trade talks. Consequently, although China recorded record-low PMI and GDP data as a result of COVID-19, it is now showing signs of recovery. George Floyd Fiasco Over the past several weeks President Trump has been facing additional hurdles for reelection due to the ridiculous behavior from irrational Black Americans and Jewish agitators, who have used the questionable death of George Floyd to incite violence, destroy public and private property and loot. The situation is so ridiculous on so many levels that I cannot speak of it openly in the detail I would like without the risk of making it the primary focus of my time. It is important to consider that the COVID-19 lockdowns provided an opportunity for this wave of domestic terrorism. And now, Jewish-run corporate America is sending billions of dollars to reward the actions of these domestic terrorists. U.S. and Global Economy In the June 2020 issue of Dividend Gems, we released revisions to U.S. GDP estimates. We raised our Q2 2020 GDP (q-o-q) estimate from -25% to...

Perhaps you remember my prediction that as the years pass we will hear about more people who claimed they predicted the 2008 financial crisis. This is certain to happen because con artists know that the longer since sompething occured, the less people will remember about it. As a result, instead of researching whether the claim is true, they will go by consensus. So if such and such and others claim some guy predicted the financial crisis, well then he must have. After all, how an so many sources claim the person predicted the crisis is he didn't? The only problem with that faulty logic is that more often than not, the media makes bogus claims about its guests in order to boost the value of the content. Boosting the content value boosts ad revenues. Got it?
Opening Statement from the June 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on June 14, 2020 U.S. Employment Data: On April 12 (April 2020 Intelligent Investor) we released a formal estimate of 35 million (minimum) and 50 million (worst-case) job losses due to the COVID-19 hysteria. As of the most recent initial jobless claims data (week ending June 6) the U.S. has lost another 1.54 million jobs (versus 1.9 million the previous week) for a total of 44.2 million jobs lost over the past eleven weeks. In only two months, the U.S. unemployment rate (U-3) which had been the lowest in more than 40 years soared to the highest rate on record at 14.7%. In April, the U.S. recorded its largest one month increase in the unemployment rate in history (from 4.4% to 14.7%) as well as the highest rate since 1948 when the U.S. government began keeping official records of economic data. The gradual reopening of the economy has resulted in some improvement in employment data. For instance, although unemployment (U-3) reached a new high at 17.1% (weekly data) it has since declined to 14.5%. Meanwhile, continuing claims (those who have been collecting unemployment benefits for more than two weeks) declined to 21 million after reaching a recent peak of 25 million. Previously we discussed that millions of Americans were not likely to have been included in the unemployment data from March and April. We now know that 8.1 million American workers were not included in the April unemployment data due to misclassification. After adjusting for this correction, the real unemployment rate (U-3) from April was 19.5%. So long as officials continue to make progress reopening the economy, the labor market will begin to show signs of improvement. But we believe a large percentage of lost jobs (12 to 15 million) will never return. This brings us to a more accurate gauge of unemployment known as the U-6 unemployment rate. The U-6 rate soared to 22.8% in April (unadjusted for corrected data as discussed above). Washington has created a huge incentive for many Americans not to seek employment. Part of the problem with what is expected to become a persistently high unemployment rate is being exacerbated by the overly generous benefits that have been provided to unemployed workers through the CARES Act. In addition to their unemployment insurance, each worker who lost his or her job is also receiving $600 per week. Thus, a large percentage of U.S. workers (up to 20%) who lost their job since March are receiving twice as much from total unemployment compensation as they earned working full time. Even worse, under the CARES Act there is no requirement for unemployed workers to actively seek employment. Hence, the overly generous assistance being provided to many of the nation’s unemployed population presents a major problem that must be addressed sooner rather than later.
Opening Statement from the June 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on June 4, 2020 (pre-market release) Overview As discussed in special webinars held in March (as well as in the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster) the impact from the response to COVID-19 is likely to result in a record-low collapse in GDP for many nations. In our view, we have been in a global recession since mid-March. Moreover, in early April we stated that most economic data from around the globe would be “off the charts.”
Opening Statement from the June 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on June 31, 2020 Overview As a result of the reckless actions of officials in response to the coronavirus outbreak, we have seen numerous unprecedented events over the past two months, including: two emergency rate cuts by the Federal Reserve smashing short-term interest rates down to a range of 0 to 25 basis points, a $2.2 trillion stimulus package from Washington, over $7 trillion in credit facilities created the Fed, a collapse in U.S. Treasury yields to record lows, a collapse in crude oil to negative pricing for the first time ever, the most rapid collapse in the U.S. stock market from record-highs into a bear market, the loss of 40.8 million jobs in the U.S., record-high unemployment, record-low PMI and GDP data for several countries. As discussed in special webinars held in March (as well as in the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster) the impact from the response to COVID-19 is likely to result in a record-low collapse in GDP for many nations. In our view the world has been in recession since mid-March. Moreover, we stated in early April that most economic data from around the globe would be “off the charts.”
The fact of the matter is that Jamie Foxx is similar to just about every single black person who has ever held a role in Hollywood. He lacks talent. And he certainly wasn't recruited into Hollywood due to his looks. Foxx was inducted into the Hollywood mind control cult in order to fulfill the Jewish Hollywood agenda of displacing white role models with black characters that share little with black people in the real world. Imagine if a white man talked about a movie whereby he gets "to kill all of the blacks." First you would not hear the fake cheers as you heard when Foxx boasted about getting to kill all of the whites. Next, the white man who proudly boosted about killing all of the blacks in the movie would be called racist, the movie would be banned and he would be cast aside by Hollywood, unable to work again. I hope people are beginning to see what's going on. Similar to all blacks in the entertainment business, Foxx has been instructed by his racist Jewish handlers to use every opportunity he can find to demonize whites and express hatred towards them while pretending he's joking. This is the kind of BS manipulation that has fueled the Jewish-led anti-White movement.
Opening Statement from the May 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on May 17, 2020 For the US, Q1 2020 GDP was reported at -4.8 percent. We believe Q2 GDP data will easily surpass the –8.4 percent collapse (final revised data) reported in Q4 2008 (note that the GDP data will be revised for many years before the real numbers are known). Moreover, it should be apparent that corporate earnings growth for the full 2020 year will post large declines. The earnings recession in US stocks ended by Q4 2019 but is guaranteed to resume once Q1 and Q2 earnings have been reported...
Opening Statement from the May 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on May 6, 2020 (pre-market release) It is important to acknowledge that the current economic crisis has been caused not by greedy Wall Street bankers (as is usually the case) but by reckless politicians and corporate bureaucrats who have jumped aboard the fearmongering COVID-19 bandwagon, which might ultimately serve other agendas. At some point, if the truth is ever recorded the COVID-19 hysteria will be viewed as an economic disaster that could have been avoided if not for the misguided actions of officials. Fortunately, many of the same officials who were quick to shut down the economy are beginning to realize how bad things will get the longer the economy remains closed. Officials from around the world are now starting to gradually reopen their economies as new COVID-19 infections are either in decline or leveling off. But we cannot neglect the possibility of a recurrence during the winter months given the virus’ (rarely mentioned) low ability to survive in hot climates. Global Economy China: China’s economy was already fragile due to the trade dispute with the US. Of particular concern is China’s very risky, opaque and bloated financial system which is closely linked to its (largely) state-run economy. COVID-19 has already resulted in record-low PMI and GDP data. Although China appears to be in the process of an economic recovery...
The following audio was created sometime in 2014 or 2015.
Opening Statement from the May 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on May 3, 2020 Overview No one alive today has ever witnessed an economic collapse of this magnitude over such a short time span. In just a few weeks we have seen the following: two emergency rate cuts by the Federal Reserve, a $2.2 trillion stimulus package from Washington, $6 trillion in credit facilities created the Fed, a collapse in US Treasury yields to record lows, a collapse in oil prices to negative pricing for the first time ever, the most rapid collapse in the US stock market from record-highs, loss of 30 million jobs in the US, record-low PMI and GDP data for several countries. As discussed in special webinars held in March (as well as in the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster) the impact from the response to COVID-19 is likely to result in a record-low collapse in GDP for many nations. In our view the world has been in recession since mid to late-March. As we stated in April, we believe most economic data from around the globe will be “off the charts.” For the US, Q1 2020 GDP was recently reported at -4.8 percent. We believe there is a good chance Q2 GDP will surpass the –8.4 percent collapse (final revised data) reported in Q4 2008 (note that the GDP data will be revised for many years before the real numbers are known). Although not yet reported, it should be apparent that corporate earnings have collapsed. The earnings recession in US stocks ended by Q4 2019 but is guaranteed to resume in Q1 2020 as a result of COVID-19. We have no doubt that Q1 and Q2 S&P 500 earnings will be negative. Estimates for Q3 and Q4 are too difficult to determine at this point. But we do not expect the S&P 500 to record earnings growth for the full 2020 year. The possibility of a huge wave of corporate bankruptcies is also of major concern. The Fed has attempted to reduce...
YouTube is a Jewish-run criminal organization operating under the umbrella of Jewish mafia-run Google. YouTube and Google have been committing advertisement fraud for years, which seemingly impacts only corporations. Once when you consider that corporations are wasting billions of dollars on Google’s Adsense platform which yields poor results, it means corporations that use online advertising will raise prices to counter the poor returns on advertising. What this means is that consumers are being ripped off. Unfortunately, very few corporations realize that online advertising is a huge Jewish scam. Quite simply, most of the false claims are false and the data displayed to advertisers is largely bogus. Meanwhile, under the direction of Google, YouTube allows crooks and cons to promote scams, porn, pedophilia and disinformation. And this disgusting content is being tagged with advertisements. Google and YouTube need to be shut down along with all of the other Jewish-run social media scams. There should be no doubt that the Jewish mafia has extended its nefarious business operations...
Opening Statement from the April 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on April 19, 2020 Overview Prior to the “Coronavirus collapse” of 2020 we had been gradually increasing our bearish bias on the stock market due to valuation concerns. First, we lowered reentry prices for most securities on the Recommended List. We also recommended fewer securities for investors looking to take new positions. Finally, for securities where investors held positions we advised the use of stop-loss orders to protect against large sudden downside. At the same time, we generally did not advise selling these stocks because they were continuing to benefit from strong momentum. As it turned out, our bearish guidance and risk management strategy has worked out very well for the majority of stocks on the Recommended list since February. In the March issue (published on March 15) we recommended investors look to gradually reenter select securities and add to current positions. We provided more specific guidance in the detailed securities analysis section. This general guidance turned out to be the right call, as the stock market made a bottom one week later (March 23) and has since entered a strong bull rally, having officially exited the bear market that begun in March. Keep in mind that we publish each monthly issue of Dividend Gems on a specified predetermined date rather than publishing issues when we believe we can provide the best recommendations. Given the extreme volatility and unprecedented events that have taken place over the past two months, even we are surprised at the results of our recommendations. In short, our active management recommendations from the February and March issues turned out remarkably good. Moving forward...
Listen to this idiot attempt to speak. You can barely understand what he's saying. Why would the media even air this fool? This is just another example of the "Jewish advantage" which equates to discrimination against gentiles by Jews in favor of Jews. All Jewish-run firms and industries always discriminate against gentiles in favor of Jews. This is a fact...
Opening Statement from the April 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on April 9, 2020 (pre-market release) To remind investors how fast things have changed, we have posted some excerpts from the February 2020 Intelligent Investor Opening Statement (published February 6, pre-market)… Most likely, stock market volatility due to the Coronavirus drama is not yet finished…the potential for higher levels in 2020 for the market indexes remains relatively high given...On the other hand, excessive stock valuations have created a possible scenario whereby it might not take much for the market to enter into a strong correction. <- The stock market made new record highs through mid-February, but then entered a strong correction, which later progressed into a market collapse. On March 15 from the March 2020 Dividend Gems… Even though the panic surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak is not justified, it’s going to take a large toll on the economy and stock market…Combining all of the adverse consequences of the Coronavirus hysteria, we believe earnings estimates will get crushed from current levels…The main concern...is that the Coronavirus outbreak is in its early stages, so it’s likely to get much worse, especially in the United States. This has dire implications for the economy and capital markets. <-A few hours later the Fed announced a 100bp emergency rate cut. Two weeks later Washington passed a $2.2 trillion stimulus package. Overview As first discussed several weeks ago, we expect to see global economic data that’s “off the charts.” Even with the recent $2.2 trillion stimulus package passed by Washington on March 27, we do not think there is any way the US can avoid a recession because we believe it’s already here. We have no doubt the US is in the early stages of what is likely to be a deep recession. The duration of the recession is largely in the hands of officials. Even though another stimulus package is likely, officials have shut down the economy. Despite consensus views which place a best-case scenario for a Coronavirus vaccine at 12 to 18 months, we believe there is a good chance that a vaccine ready for distribution before the end of 2020 and/or one or more effective treatments to be released. The timing and extent by which these events occur will largely determine whether or not we face another leg down in the global recession due to vulnerabilities in the financial system...
YouTube is filled with thousands of con artists like James who play the "fake it till ya make it" game. This practice has morphed into a disgusting epidemic of epic proportions largely as a result of social media and YouTube, where these scammers feel they can get away with deception and lies without...
Opening Statement from the April 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on April 5, 2020 Overview The economic and financial impact resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented. As first discussed several weeks ago, we expect to see global economic data that’s “off the charts.” Even with the recent $2.2 trillion stimulus package passed by Washington on March 27, we do not think there is any way the US can avoid a recession because we believe it’s already here. We first announced this conclusion in mid-March even though we assumed a stimulus package would be passed. COVID-19 Hysteria The response by officials to COVID-19 has been improperly focused, poorly calculated and largely reckless. Meanwhile, the media has made things much worse. As a result, COVID-19 hysteria has led to widespread panic and fear. First, the travel and tourism industries were hit hard. Now, just about everything is being hit hard as the US follows much of the world in locking down its economy. As early as March 1 when the US had only around 100 confirmed cases of COVID-19, we warned there would be an explosion of cases in the US. We found this troubling given that there was already a huge overreaction by officials. By March 24, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the US had soared to 50,000. Three days later the number of cases had doubled to more than 100,000 due to the rollout of testing. As of April 5, there are now more than 340,000 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 and over 9600 deaths. In reality, these numbers are not much different than those seen with the seasonal flu. The main difference is the lack of treatment options with COVID-19...
The following discussion was originally recorded in early 2019. As always, the discussion by Mr. Stathis is unscripted with no notes or editing.
Opening Statement from the March 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on March 15, 2020 Overview Over the past several months we have been gradually increasing our bearish bias on the stock market due to valuation concerns. We have used a few basic strategies to reflect our increasingly bearish sentiment. First, we have been reducing reentry prices for most securities on the Recommended List. We have also been recommending fewer securities for investors seeking to take new positions. Finally, for securities where investors held current positions, we advised the use of stop-loss orders to protect against downside. At the same time, we did not advise selling these stocks because they were continuing to benefit from strong momentum. We had not previously taken this more defensive approach prior to several months ago. As it turned out, because the stock market has collapsed by around 25% since the February issue, our bearish guidance and risk management strategy worked out well for the majority of stocks on the Recommended list. Because the market has primarily remained in a strong bearish trend since late February, most investors...
And he's also been preaching the same doom shit for years. Anyone who listens to these one-way charlies is destined for financial doom.
Opening Statement from the March 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on March 1, 2020 Overview Just as the weakness in the global economy appeared to be bottoming, fears of a slowdown due to the Coronavirus outbreak have added an additional layer of downside momentum to global growth. We previously addressed many criticisms regarding public reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak in several audios and a recent article published on the website titled, “The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Con That Fooled the World.” It’s shocking to see how much the world is reacting to something that’s much smaller in terms of the number of cases and fatalities to the seasonal flu (commonly caused by the Influenza virus). Given that we are currently only experiencing the early stages of the outbreak, things could get much worse. If reactions have been this bad with relatively few cases and fatalities, how bad will sentiment become when the outbreak advances? To reiterate, at this stage we believe the response to the Coronavirus has been greatly exaggerated and is doing much more harm to the global economy than the actual outbreak. But we cannot ignore sentiment even if it’s based on unfounded rationale. Widespread panic and irrational behavior stemming from the Coronavirus outbreak is putting downward pressure on global growth. We already see...

Opening Statement from the February 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on February 6, 2020 (pre-market release) Geopolitical Risks On January 2, 2020 the US military conducted a fatal military drone strike in Bagdad targeting Iran’s top military general, Qasem Soleimani. In response, Iranian leaders vowed to strike US military interests in the region. On January 7, 2020 Iran launched 13 ballistic missiles targeting two Iraqi military bases housing US troops. No casualties were reported, and we believe this was the result Iran sought. Even though Iran’s missile strike may not lead to an escalation of military conflict it will be used by Washington to coordinate geopolitical and military strategy towards Iran. Below we summarize some important geopolitical issues.
Opening Statement from the February 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on February 2, 2020 Overview On January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom officially left the European Union after more than three and one-half years since voters decided in a referendum held on June 23rd 2016. But the details of trade between the UK and EU have yet to be determined adding to global trade uncertainty. Meanwhile, economic weakness in the EU continues to worsen as expected with France and Italy as standout underperformers. Quarterly GDP came in at only 0.1 percent, its slowest pace of growth in nearly seven years. The selloff in crude oil is largely due to fears of a more pronounced economic slowdown. We believe...
Opening Statement from the January 2020 Dividend Gems Originally published on January 19, 2020 2019 in Review Despite a disappointing year in earnings for the S&P 500, all three major US stock market indexes performed spectacularly well for the entire year marked by jaw dropping gains in Q4 2019, rivaling the performance in Q1 2019. For the entire 2019 calendar year, the S&P 500 returned more than 28 percent recording its best year since the 30 percent gains in 2013. Meanwhile, the Dow delivered a very impressive 22 percent. Finally, the Nasdaq led all three major market indexes with eye-popping returns of 35 percent. Much of the gains in the equities market were the result of increasing optimism of resolution to the trade dispute between the US and China, coupled with the Fed’s reversal in monetary policy from the more hawkish stance taken in 2018...
Opening Statement from the January 2020 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on January 9, 2020 2019 in Review Despite a disappointing year in earnings for the S&P 500, all three major US stock market indexes performed spectacularly well for the entire year marked by jaw dropping gains in Q4 2019, rivaling the performance in Q1 2019. For the entire 2019 calendar year, the S&P 500 returned more than 28 percent recording its best year since the 30 percent gains in 2013. Meanwhile, the Dow delivered a very impressive 22 percent. Finally, the Nasdaq led all three major market indexes with eye-popping returns of 35 percent. Much of the gains in the equities market were the result of increasing optimism of resolution to the trade dispute between the US and China, coupled with the Fed’s reversal in monetary policy from the more hawkish stance taken in 2018. At the start of 2019 many investors were wondering if the bull market in stocks had finally ended after witnessing a severe selloff throughout Q4 2018. The selloff began in October 2018, and gradually progressed into a gut wrenching collapse in December highlighted by the market collapse on Christmas Eve. By the end of 2018, the three major market indexes had lost an average of nearly 6 percent amounting to the worst performance since the financial crisis in 2008. The market correction in Q4 2018 was particularly worrisome for two reasons. First...
Opening Statement from the January 2020 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on January 6, 2020 (pre-market release) Global Economic Overview For the first time in several years we are witnessing the convergence of numerous macro risk factors which have weighed on investor sentiment. Sentiment continues to be led by trade disputes as well as the impact of persistently negative bond yields and declining interest rates. Meanwhile, geopolitical variables are increasing in prominence. A broad assessment of the global macroeconomic landscape is sobering. The European Union economy continues to weaken as a result of the Washington-Beijing trade dispute. Moreover, significant levels of social and political unrest remain apparent. This weakness in the EU has forced the ECB to extend the date of its first interest rate hike in more than a decade. In fact, our previous forecast of another rate cut by the ECB materialized recently. In 2018 we mentioned that Germany would be adversely impacted by a prolonged trade dispute between Washington and Beijing given Germany’s high reliance on trade with China (Intelligent Investor). Over the past year Germany has reported two quarters of declining GDP growth. And it might already be in a recession by the time GDP data are revised. The EU’s second largest economy, France is not doing much better. Meanwhile, Italy remains in deep trouble. The UK economy reported its first decline in GDP growth (q-o-q) in ten years while the pound continues to get hammered as a result of the uncertainty regarding if, when and under what conditions England intends to leave the EU. Latin America remains volatile led by an unprecedented economic and political crisis in Venezuela which continues to be marked by chronic hyperinflation which has led to human suffering. U.S. economic sanctions have made the situation much worse. Argentina faces its own political turmoil and ongoing economic crisis, having received the largest loan in IMF history. And Brazil continues its struggle to recover from its worst economic and political crisis in history. More recently, Bolivia and Chile are now experiencing social unrest. Despite several attempts to boost growth, the Japanese economy remains weak. And we cannot forget about ongoing tensions between South Korea and Japan stemming from a legal dispute from forced Korean labor during WWII. The dispute has created numerous trade issues including Korean boycotts of Japanese goods. Political crises in Iraq and Lebanon have recently added to the many challenges in the Middle East (i.e. Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia). Although the Chinese economy has managed to hold up relatively well during its trade dispute with the U.S., we remain skeptical regarding the accuracy of its publicly reported economic data. Even still, GDP growth continues to decline and has now reached a 27-year low at 6.0%. With a slowing economy and mounting trade pressures, China remains in a vulnerable position with nowhere to turn. Over the past few years China’s total debt has skyrocketed to 300 percent of GDP accounting for 15 percent of all global debt. Unlike the situation prior to the 2008 global financial crisis...
Updated from the original story, The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Con That Fooled the World Various bureaucratic organizations continue to fuel the Coronavirus hysteria. And the media is eating it up while cashing in on advertisement revenues. This ensures the positive feedback loop of propaganda persists even though there are no signs that the outbreak will be as problematic as the seasonal flu. Everywhere you turn you're seeing and hearing something about the Coronavirus. And it's all panic based. Several media firms have even created special categories to focus on pumping out content on the Coronavirus. Take a look at the stock quote page on Yahoo Finance for Walt Disney (DIS) shown below. The page was saved just as it appeared. Nearly even article is about the Coronavirus. And all I wanted was to read some news about Disney's business. Boiler room news outfit Yahoo has even added a Coronavirus category in order to hype the drama even more. The establishment has been responsible for creating this highly unnecessary panic. It's been the public's reaction to endless Coronavirus fear mongering that's actually made the situation far more dire than a worst-case scenario for the outbreak. And I haven't even discussed any of the bat shit crazy conspiracy theories and fake news narratives being pumped out on the Coronavirus. One of the more popular nut job rumors floating around social media and YouTube is that the virus has been engineered by China to contain HIV as a weapon to combat the west. Advocates of these ridiculous claim are likely to be spotted posting comments on flat earth videos as well. It is indeed mind boggling that the Coronavirus drama continues to grow at an alarming rate in absence of a commensurate degree of severity. Alas, the Coronavirus propaganda campaign has now boosted the chances of a global recession over the next twelve months. Previously, we attached a 20% chance of recession in the US. But based on the panic response to the Coronavirus, we have now raised the odds to 35%. These odds could quickly rise depending on how US officials handle the inevitable growth in new cases. It's important to understand that under normal circumstances, the number of Coronavirus cases in the US should be expected to explode in coming months. This is a normal outcome for any new virus which enters the human population in a new region for the first time. But when you have every government body and media outlet putting the spotlight on every new case, it distorts the reality of the situation. In some ways I understand why the public has added to the hysteria. After all, what's a person supposed to think when major cities declare a state of emergency after the first case has been detected? In that situation how can you expect people to not react as if the virus is some crazy killing machine? It gets even worse. Some cities are declaring a state of emergency without even having a single case. What kind of message is that sending to the general population? It's as if officials are intentionally trying to destroy economic activity. At the very least one would think these same bureaucrats would try to educate the public about the normal course of infection of flu-like viruses, as well as expected morbidity and mortality stats. As a first step, responsible officials should have educated the public as to the data on the seasonal flu in order to provide the public with some kind of perspective. But officials have not even explained that the infection is in its infancy, especially in the US, and is expected to...
If the wave of fear mongering we see today with the Coronavirus outbreak reminds you of the gold pumping syndicate, there's good reason, as we can draw many comparisons. In fact, many gold pumpers are using the Coronavirus as a sales pitch for gold. These are the many of same people who are responsible for spreading baseless lies about the virus. For instance, Jewish gold-pumping clown Jim Sinclair (who pumps the doomsday narrative in order to lure suckers into his epic failure mining stock) claimed without any evidence whatsoever...

Over the past several weeks I published a few (unrehearsed) audios discussing the exaggerated response to the Coronavirus outbreak. If I didn't know better, I’d have thought this fear-mongering campaign was being led by Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, David Icke and the rest of the so-called "alternative media" con artists and gatekeepers. The problem is that it's being led primarily by the so-called "mainstream media." Instead of countering the Coronavirus scare as a hoax as their predictable reaction to anything from the "mainstream," the "alternative media" shills have willingly jumped aboard the Coronavirus narrative adding their own mix of fiction in order to sell ads. With the Coronavirus having been identified as a major global health risk, virtually everyone is responding in near panic mode to warnings from government bodies across the globe. At times I feel like I’m watching a low budget sci-fi. It's quite shocking and sad to witness proof positive that the masses have become so gullible. See Coronavirus Hysteria Continues Showing How Gullible Most People Are Perhaps future the warnings about the Coronavirus outbreak will be warranted. But for now, it's obvious to me that everything has been blown way out of proportion. Critics might respond that it's better to be safe than sorry. I would counter that argument by reminding readers that sometimes the fear of an event can result in greater damage than the actual event itself. This is the main problem I see with the Coronavirus hysteria. We are now seeing this scenario unfold in global equities markets. As I first stated nearly four weeks ago, I have not seen any evidence whatsoever indicating a reasonable chance that the Coronavirus (recently designated as COVID-19 by the WHO) will result in a major global outbreak leading to high fatality rates. As of the date of this publication I continue to stand by that view. Let's hope I'm proven correct. Even though the reality of the Coronavirus outbreak continues to lack sufficient justification for most of the measures taken, the resulting hysteria has already adversely impacted virtually every business in Southeast Asia with plant closings, school closings, lockdowns and a variety of other measures. Most recently, parts of Europe are now engaging in exaggerated responses to confirmed cases of COVID-19 infections despite only a small number of cases having been confirmed. I say "small number" because when compared to the typical spread of infectious agents causing the seasonal flu, the numbers reported for COVID-19 are not only quite low in Europe, but also in China once adjusted for key variables. In order to be convinced of this claim you’re going to need to be exposed to the proper perspective. But of course, most people lack proper perspective. As a result, they're often fooled by the media, con artists and other purveyors of disinformation. Even misinformed individuals who have no agendas are can be fooled into believing ridiculous claims simply because they lack proper perspective. This is where critical thinking can provide great assistance. If you chose to place your faith in anything published by any media outfit you may as well tattoo the word "lemming" on your forehead. At least people will respect you more for knowing what you are. It's easy for anyone lacking the proper perspective to get things wrong. Without the proper perspective, propaganda ring leaders will have an easy time convincing you of things that aren't at all true. And you won't realize you're being fooled because they'll offer cherry-picked bits and pieces of data in order to convince you that their claims are true. This is the modus operandi of con artists and cult leaders. Disinformation among the masses has become increasingly common given that many people tend to use the Internet to engage in what they consider “research,” even though their sources are most often inaccurate or at best misleading. While a large amount of the problem is due to search algorithms which promote confirmation bias, the lack of critical thinking skills and the ability exercise logic have also added to the Age of Disinformation. (1) At the end of the day, most people lack basic critical thinking skills which prevents them from realizing they're being manipulated by search algorithms, as well as sources lacking credibility or possessing obvious agenda and hence bias. Adding to the problem, many of these individuals are convinced they possess excellent critical thinking skills and are able to use logic in order to arrive at conclusions and prove their points. Unfortunately, more often than not such individuals suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect. (2) Although the Coronavirus originated in China, we cannot forget that the hysteria was started by the US media in conjunction with various global organizations that are controlled by the US establishment, such as the World Health Organization. Thereafter, it wasn't long before every country in the world reacted as if what I would consider a "relatively modest" Coronavirus outbreak was some kind of global emergency threatening to wipe out half of the world population. It kind of sounds like something Alex Jones would promote, doesn’t it? Now if you don't think the outbreak is "relatively modest," you lack proper perspective with regards to the spread and fatality rates of pathogens. Stay tuned for a bit of detail on this. As a result of the virus having spread to Italy and Germany, global stock markets have been decimated over the past few days. If one can identify a silver lining here, it's that valuations were way too high to begin with making it quite easy for investors to find a reason to sell stocks. And that’s precisely what’s happened. We even warned about this scenario two weeks ago. (3) The only problem is that the Coronavirus hysteria isn’t likely to end anytime soon. Alternatively, it could be replaced by some other headline after officials claim the spread has been contained, but could reappear at a later time. Regardless, chances are high that investors will at some point forget about the Coronavirus fears and jump back into stocks once valuations become too attractive to ignore. (4) As previously mentioned, the Coronavirus hysteria was started by US officials and certain media mobsters. Once the drama was set into motion all other media companies ran with the hype because it represented a great path to generate advertisement dollars. (5) The World Health Organization (WHO) and other global organizations continue to sound the fear-mongering alarm. In response to widespread fears of a COVID-19 pandemic, numerous multinational corporations and entire cities across the globe have shutdown, threatening to push the already weak global economy into recession. Now that the US stock market has entered freefall, the White House is backing away from previous claims that the Coronavirus outbreak is as serious as previously reported. After all, with the presidential election just months away a weak economy and declining stock market won't help Trump's chances for reelection, especially given that he’s constantly grading his performance based on the performance of the US economy and stock market. The White House has already entered damage control mode in attempt to curtail fears of a widespread COVID-19 outbreak in the US, having recently authorized $3 billion to prevent its spread. This action is meant to boost consumer and investor confidence more than anything because the White House knows that the biggest problem faced by COVID-19 isn't the damage it might cause as a result of infections, but the damage due to exaggerated and overblown fears. There are other segments to the Coronavirus story worth mentioning. The panic response from the Coronavirus fear-mongering campaign has opened the door for an army of fake news charlatans to strike "advertisement gold" by generating millions of views from fake news videos and articles. (6) See Climate Change Cult Leader Chris Martenson is Creating Coronavirus Fake News Although the Coronavirus was first identified in Wuhan, China in mid-December 2019, as of February 26, 2020, there have been just over 81,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases with just under 2800 deaths, almost all from China. Perhaps the most stunning thing about the Coronavirus hysteria is that the masses don't seem to understand that the virus does not cause some kind of crazy illness with a 50%+ fatality rate like the Ebola virus. In fact, the Coronavirus causes a common respiratory tract infection similar to other types of respiratory viruses. In reality, the Coronavirus is not fundamentally different than the Influenza virus. The Influenza virus is the pathogen most commonly associated with the seasonal flu. It too originates from China. Both viruses infect the respiratory system causing a variety of respiratory illnesses. The main determinant of the severity of the illness caused by most respiratory tract infections (including Coronavirus and Influenza virus) is whether the infected person is considered to be in a high-risk group. Individuals in one or more high risk groups are the most vulnerable to severe infection leading to death. Vulnerable individuals include children under the age of 5, individuals with certain kinds of respiratory disease such as asthma, people with diabetes, elderly and other immunocompromised individuals. Medical officials from various organizations such as the WHO have identified the strain of the Coronavirus that originated from Wuhan, China (COVID-19) as causing a more serious illness than the typical Coronavirus infection which is usually results in a mild illness. However, they have not presented sufficient data showing the age distribution of all individuals who have been infected, nor have they provided data identifying preexisting medical conditions or disorders present in each infected individual that could contribute to
The following audio was first created and published in 2016. It seems that Peter Schiff has formed business relationships with his tribesmen at copywriting boiler room Agora Financial (via Wall Street Daily). Take note folks, as this not only further implicates Schiff as a fear mongering con man, but it also adds more ridiculous predictions to his already terrible track record. As you listen to Mike break down the copywriting scam in the audio below, you might want to download the PDF (located at the end of the article) for a full transcript of the email marketing pitch from Wall Street Daily and Schiff. Notice that perennial con man Jim Rogers, also a member of the doomsday syndicate, is on the "board of directors" of Wall Street Daily. Remember, you are judged by the company you keep. If you haven't already figured out that Rogers makes most of his money from gigs like this as a result of his media presence, hang tight because I'll be releasing a nice piece pointing to this in the future.
The audio below was taken from our "lost files archive." We just recently discovered it so we have posted it for the world to hear. It was a phone recording Mike made in 2013/2014 when he contacted the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) to complain about some activities which he felt were very disturbing. Listen below as Mike explains to the AARP answering service rep why the AARP is a huge scam. Based on many years of investigation, Mike has learned that while the AARP charges its members membership fees in exchange for promised benefits such as reduced rates on a variety of services, it actually exploits seniors by offering bogus discounts. In fact, the AARP receives a cut from signups from various companies that are promoted by AARP as offering special “senior citizen discounts” when the fact is that one can usually find lower prices elsewhere. What angered Mike sufficiently to call in and make a complaint and issue a warning to AARP management was when he started seeing AARP advertising for con man Jim Cramer, along with his boiler room company TheStreet. Think about that for a minute. You have an organization which collects membership fees from senior citizens in exchange for providing valuable services and information which is marketed to be in the best interests of its members. Instead of looking out its members, the AARP promotes has formed business relations with companies it pitches to its members. And it does not properly disclose these relationship to its members. Furthermore, the AARP is paid to promote scam artists (in the form of advertisements) who are likely to cause seniors to lose a good deal of their retirement nest egg if they fall prey to these scammers.
The images below should serve to remind everyone about the clowns promoted by the media as "experts." Instead of valuable insight, these clowns pitch a fear and doom narrative to the masses of unintelligent individuals who are too naive to realize when they're being conned. Remember folks, these broken clocks are pitching a fictional narratives that never change. You will never make money in the long run listening to broken clocks. This should be obvious at this point. If it isn't then you have a short memory. You also have a great deal of financial pain in your future. Check the track records of Faber, Schiff, Rogers and the rest of this crowd and you'll see what I mean. And if you actually think these clowns have even a decent track record, all I can say is may God help you. I explain the details how these scam artists are fleecing their cult members in the audios below.

Opening Statement from the December 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on December 15, 2019
Some readers may need to read a few previous articles I've written about Chris Martenson in order to put everything into context. However, for those who are not familiar with Mr. Martenson, I'll provide a brief rundown before proceeding to discuss the focus of this article. I've discussed Chris Martenson several times over the years because I believe he's engaging in less than honest business practices for the purpose of selling snake oil. In short, Martenson is someone the public should be warned about because he's selling fear and disinformation while marketing himself as a credible source of insight. Let me be clear. Chris Martenson is by no means credible. If Martenson kept to himself and only posted his nonsense on his huckster-themed "Peak Prosperity" website, his deception wouldn't be much of an issue because his reach would be limited. But considering that Martenson has been aired in the media many times and continues to deliver his nonsense throughout the so-called "alternative media," it's important that someone expose this man because he is hurting many people in ways they might not imagine. First, let's review some of Martenson's fear-mongering from the past. The images below do a good job of summarizing his track record. For some reason Martenson has made it into the financial media on a number of occasions despite having no experience working in the capital markets. Martenson never worked on Wall Street, he never managed money and he is not an investment analyst. After you see what I have to reveal about Martenson you'll understand why he has gained traction in the media. Below you can see some of the sites that link to Martenson's Robert Kiyosaki-like themed website, Peak Prosperity. If you want a fairly comprehensive list of the gold pumping disinformation fake news syndicate, simply check Martenson's YouTube channel. You will see the same charlatans appear on every major gold pumper channel. When you're feeding off of the same dogma day after day, you're no longer able to think critically. You've been inducted into a cult. This partly explains why so many people today are in cults and they don't even realize it.
If you're telling people you can teach them the "exact skills and strategies on how to trade stocks like a professional so you can make consistent profits so you can create a consistent source of income for yourself," then you are a HUGE CON ARTIST. Adam Khoo claims you don't need to know anything about the stock market, but he can teach you how to trade like a professional. It's a typical pitch that's used to reel in a huge number of sheep. It's convenient for him to target clueless people beause just by making a presentation that yields no value he will seem to be an informed credible investor. In fact, Adam Khoo is a pure charlatan targeting naive desperate people who think they can cheat the system. I encourage you to research the huge cult portal this charlatan has created. It's a combination of Amway and Tony Robbins-like bull shit.

If you have the money, you too can swindle millions of suckers making false claims, lying and pitching trash on YouTube. All you have to do is pay the criminally insane Jews running JewTube for advertisements and you can rapidly thrust your scams in front of an audience of hundreds of millions of suckers. JewTube also offers a solution for those cheap bastards looking to create their own scam operations on a shoe string budget. In other words, JewTube allows anyone to post their own scam videos without paying for advertisements because it profits by attaching advertisements from other scammers on these channels. So long as you don't speak on any subject matter the Jewish mafia has proclaimed as hate speech (which is often the truth which opposes the agendas of the Jewish mafia) you can post anything your heart desires on JewTube, from porn and pedophilia to scams and disinformation. You can promote illegal sex tourism, teach people how to consume illegal narcotics, make up crazy fake news stories....anything, so long as it does not reveal what's really going on because the Jewish mafia seeks to remain undetected while profiting from scams. Welcome to the world of disinformation. Welcome to the Jewish-controlled Internet, the biggest disaster in human history.
The following audio (first published by Mike back in 2014) provides unique insight not found anywhere else in the world. Those who might have listened to this audio a few years ago may have avoided losing massive amounts of money. Remember folks, if you aren't listening to real experts you're definitely going to lose large amounts of money.
Opening Statement from the November 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on November 17, 2019 Earnings After delivering the best year of earnings growth since 2010 at over 20 percent for 2018, it has been no surprise that 2019 would be a more difficult year. However, consensus estimates by corporate executives and Wall Street analysts were predicting a significant earnings rebound in the second half of 2019. Over the past several months we have been warning about overly optimistic earnings estimates that failed to sufficiently factor in the full impact of trade tensions. At the same time we pointed to additional factors that were adding to a reduction in earnings growth in addition to stock market valuations. As previously forecast, the pickup in earnings growth expected by corporate management and Wall Street analysts in the second half of 2019 has failed
Opening Statement from the November 2019 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on November 7, 2019 Largely as expected, on October 30 the Federal Reserve cut short term interest rates by 25 basis points for the third consecutive time this year. During the Fed meeting Powell signaled that no further rate cuts would come in 2019 unless economic data deteriorates. But we must question his claim given that there was no justification based on the economic data for any of the rate cuts made in 2019. We have previously pointed out that additional rate cuts would accelerate the pace of rate cuts from central banks throughout the world, which will add even more risk to asset bubbles that

Opening Statement from the October 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on October 6, 2019 For the first time in several years we are witnessing the convergence of numerous macro risk factors which have weighed on investor sentiment. Sentiment continues to be led by trade disputes as well as the impact of persistently negative bond yields and declining interest rates, but geopolitical variables should not be overlooked. A rough assessment of the global macroeconomic landscape is sobering. The European economy continues to weaken as a result of the Washington-Beijing trade dispute in addition to social and political unrest. Significant weakness in the EU will force the ECB to extend the date of its first interest rate hike in more than a decade further into the future. In fact, our previous forecast of another rate cut by the ECB materialized
He seems like a nice, well-intentioned guy. But let's face it. The guy is a moron. He's actually hilarious to listen to in my opinion. The bottom line is that this guy needs to learn when to keep his mouth shut and focus on learning from valid sources rather than spewing horse shit he soaked up from cons and idiots. This young man addresses one of the biggest problems in the world today, whereby most people actually think they can obtan valid and valuable information from the Internet instead of spending time in college. After hearing a couple of minutes of his nonsense you should already be able to guess a few of the clowns he listens to.

Opening Statement from the September 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on September 15, 2019 On the brighter side, the US economy remains relatively strong, with robust consumer spending, very low unemployment, respectable GDP growth, low inflation and low interest rates. But even the US continues to weaken as a result of trade uncertainty in addition to the waning impact of the fiscal stimulus. Notably, the recent consumer sentiment data from August recorded a revised 3-year low. The earnings picture in the US has been solid but is facing trade-related headwinds in 2019. US corporate earnings thus far in 2019 have yielded no growth, but are expected to rebound in the second half of 2019. This in itself could add to the pessimism as we believe neither corporations nor analysts have adequately reduced earnings estimates to account for delays in trade resolution. Since the Federal Reserve Bank cut interest rates by 25 basis points for the first time in a decade on July 31, 2019, we have seen no less than 16 other central banks cut rates. We believe this to be the beginning of what the future holds. In short, we expect several other nations to cut rates in the next two months. When the Fed meets on September 18, it could very well cut rates again. We believe another rate cut this soon would be a huge mistake because it would further accelerate the interest rate cut cascade seen throughout the globe. This could led to...
Opening Statement from the September 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on September 1, 2019 For the first time in several years we are now witnessing the convergence of numerous macro risk factors which have weighed on investor sentiment. While sentiment continues to be led primarily by trade disputes, Treasury yields and interest rates, geopolitical variables remain a significant concern. A rough assessment of the global macroeconomic landscape is indeed sobering. The European economy continues to weaken as a result of the Washington-Beijing trade dispute, but also due to social and political unrest. As a result, the ECB continues to extend the date of its first interest rate hike in more than a decade further into the future. In fact, in addition to an upcoming rate cut, we expect other economic stimulus to be announced. In 2018 we mentioned that Germany would be significantly impacted by a prolonged trade dispute between Washington and China, given its high dependence on trade with China (Intelligent Investor). This is in fact what has happened. Over the past year, Germany has reported two quarters of declining GDP growth. And it may well already be in a recession by the time GDP data has been revised. France is not doing much better. And of course Italy remains in deep trouble. The UK economy reported its first decline in GDP growth (q-o-q) in ten years while the pound continues to get hammered...
We discovered that the commentary provided by Mr. Stathis concerning the following story failed to record. This is an excellent opportunity for interested parties to provide their own commentary.

Opening Statement from the August 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on August 19, 2019 Global Rate Cuts Signals Problems As discussed in 2018, for the first time since the financial crisis central banks around the globe entered a trend of interest rate hikes. But things have reversed over the past couple of months, as we now see a trend of rate cuts. The Fed’s questionable rate cut serves as further impetus for central banks throughout the globe to cut rates. Recently, Brazil’s central bank announced a 50-basis point cut in the Selic rate pushing it to a new record low of 6.00 percent. Meanwhile, New Zealand cut rates by a larger than expected 50-basis points on August 7. The same day Thailand unexpectedly cut rates by 25-basis points to deal with a decline in export trade, India also slashed rates by 35-basis points, followed a day later by a 25-basis point cut in the Philippines. We believe there is a good chance the ECB will cut rates in September. And Japan’s central bank is also likely to cut rates in September. Even more pressure is being placed on the Fed to lower rates in 2019 considering the recent cut was largely based on escalating trade tensions between Washington and Beijing. As well, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield recently collapsed to 1.53 percent signaling a high chance of another cut in September. And there’s a good chance of two rate cuts for 2019. But if the Fed cuts rates in absence of supportive economic data, it could lead to major problems down the road. Moving forward, investors should focus more on the Fed’s communication as opposed to the economic data because monetary policy is no longer being “data driven.” It’s being determined based on speculation in addition to pressure from the White House. Stock Market Reacts to the Rate Cut Investors responded negatively to the Federal Reserve’s 25-basis point rate cut on July 31 by selling stocks. We believe the July rate cut had already been factored into the stock market during the weeks leading up to the FOMC meeting (“buy on the rumor”). Once Powell announced the rate cut, a “sell on the news” reaction caused investors to take profits. We discussed this scenario prior to the FOMC meeting (July 2019 Intelligent Investor & Market Forecaster and session 11 of the Securities Analysis & Trading Webinar). The day following the rate cut (Thursday, August 1) the selloff in stocks continued, but was exacerbated
Opening Statement from the August 2019 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on August 7, 2019 (pre-market release) Fed Cuts Rates Despite Lack of Sufficient Data On July 31, 2019 Fed Chairman Powell announced the most highly anticipated change in interest rates in more than a decade. With 100 percent of fed funds futures traders betting on a rate cut for several weeks prior to the Fed’s July FOMC meeting, the Fed did not disappoint when it announced a 25-basis point cut in the federal funds rate when it met. Notably, two fed officials were against cutting interest rates during the July meeting, making it the least agreed upon monetary policy action since Powell was appointed as chairman of the Fed. We believed rates would most likely be cut even though there was insufficient economic data to justify a cut. Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Kansas City Fed chief Esther George also believed there was insufficient data to justify a rate cut. Both officials cited strong employment data favoring tightening (if anything) as well concerns of excessive leverage in the financial system. Subscribers to the Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster recall we mentioned these same points in the past, focusing on leverage most recently in the July 2019 issue. Is Trump Trying to Push the Fed to Cut Rates More? Was Trump’s announcement of additional tariffs the result of
It's not enough that Peter Schiff made a fortune duping his cult members with dubious statements in addition to failed predictions about the US, EU and China's economy, gold, silver, inflation, commodities and US Treasuries, nor was it enough that he made ridiculous claims about the US dollar, gold and the US stock market, all of which generated book sales from his useless book by suckers who thought Schiff could lead them to huge profits (boy were they proven to be complete suckers). Believe it or not, Schiff recently tried to coerce his low-IQ cult following to start a GoFundMe campaign...
Is there a bigger financial charlatan in the world today than Jim Rickards? That's a very good question that deserves some serious thought. There's certainly no slam dunk answer to this question. After all, our Jewish friend Jim Rickards has an enormous amount of competition from his fellow tribesmen who seem to gravitate around jobs, industries and activities that do not require real and honest work. For instance, we have as finalists the following contrarian indicators: Peter "Gold-Pumping, Hyperinflation" Schiff as a frontrunner, as well as Harry "Flip-Flop, Doomsday Demographics" Dent, Jim "Never Been Right About Anything" Rogers, Marc "Asian Nightlife Expert" Faber, Mike "Bull Shit Artist and Conspiracy Loon" Maloney, Eric "Pump and Dump" Sprott and Doug "Move Everything To Argentina to Escape the Collapse" Casey. Gunning for the top spot is also Robert "Career Con" Kiyosaki, as well as Tony "Life Coach" Robbins. The list of financial charlatans is quite long. And we certainly can't leave Porter "End of America" Stansberry off the list of finalists. You may not have thought of Stansberry because he's been largely in hiding ever since his epic "End of America" fail. As you might recall, back in 2010 Stansberry paid Alex Jones to be the voice of Stansberry's "End of America" fear-mongering scam. The ads for the one-plus hour long video were spread throughout the entire media, from internet and broadcast to alternative and mainstream. Although the ad campaign lasted through 2014, the video was run up until around 2015. If you listened to the advice in his fear-mongering infomentary, you lost huge. Stansberry even followed up with a similar doom and gloom videomercial called "End of America 2020," which of course was just as pathetic and ridiculous as his prior attempt. You might recall that I have previously exposed the fact that like Stansberry, Jim Rickards also works for copywriting boiler room, Agora Financial. Stansberry pretends he's not affiliated with Agora but he's very closely connected with this boiler room. In fact, Porter worked for Agora Financial for several years after he had been previously delivering pizzas. That's right. Porter Stansberry was a pizza delivery boy prior to being hired by Agora where he "cut his teeth"" learning the tricks of the copywriting trade to game the sheep. Listen to the audio below as pathological liar and gold-pumping charlatan Jim Rickards reads off a script prepared by copywriting monkeys at Agora Financial. First of all, if you really have something of value to introduce, why are you readng from a script? You should note that all copywriting scams are scripted. After you listen to this ridiculous pitch from Rickards, I want you to ask yourself if you actually believe his bull shit. If you do, you're quite gullible not so intelligent (putting it mildly).
I've already exposed the Alt-Right movement as another Jewish-run controlled opposition dog-and-pony show. More on the Alt Right Jewish Scam Jordan Peterson EXPOSED: the Latest of the Alt Right Jewish Puppets Jordan Peterson is Another Alt Right Jewish Puppet While it's sad to see so many gullible white people constantly dupped by Jewish gatekeepers, what's remarkable is that the Alt-Right crowd has actually been fooled by this creepy Jewish weirdo, Milos Yiannopoulos. Don't be fooled by the name. He's not Greek. He's Jewish. And he's also from the Jewish-run website Breitbart, which pretends to promote the interests of White Americans. In reality, Breitbart is just another Jewish-run gatekeeping apparatus. First and foremost, Jews have no place in the Alt-Right movement if in fact the objective of the movement is to preserve white nationalism and identity. In fact, the Jewish mafia has objectives which seek to eradicate white nationalism and identity. But you can't expect much when the movement was spearheaded by a very wealthy Jewish shill who ebegs. Richard Spencer Jewish Alt Right Fraud and Multimillionaire Is Now E-Begging Second, when you see the Alt-Right group embrace a homosexual, you know their minds have been hijacked. Milos demonstrates yet another instance whereby only Jews can proudly claim they run the banks and media. But if a gentile were to say it, they'd be called a racist, bigot and anti-semite. Now what group of people do you suppose created this double standard? Take a guess.
Opening Statement from the August 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on August 4, 2019 On July 31, 2019 Fed Chairman Powell announced the most highly anticipated change in interest rates in more than a decade. With 100 percent of fed funds futures traders betting on a rate cut for several weeks prior to the Fed’s July FOMC meeting, the Fed did not disappoint when it announced a 25-basis point cut in the federal funds rate when it met. During the weeks leading up to the FOMC blackout period (one week prior to the Saturday preceding an FOMC meeting and the Thursday following that meeting) investors interpreted Powell’s statements to mean that a rate cut would be coming during the July FOMC meeting. And because Powell failed to make statements that might otherwise cause investors to question whether a rate cut would be announced, he was essentially signaling to investors that rates would be cut during the July meeting.
Opening Statement from the July 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on July 21, 2019 For many years now the sustained period of record-low interest rates has fueled the search for yield which has enabled the real estate market to post pre-crisis highs. Although interest rates have risen beyond record-low levels, real estate market remains strong along with consumer spending. The stock market has also benefited from low rates. The post-crisis period has been especially favorable for dividend securities relative to net historical returns. Because we believe the upper limit for
Opening Statement from the July 2019 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on July 11, 2019 (pre-market release) Overview The U.S. is now enjoying its longest economic expansion in history. As well, the U.S. stock market continues to make new record highs as it adds to the longest bull market in U.S. history. And even more upside is expected over the next several months. But much depends on the details of successful trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing. A sustained period of record low interest rates has fueled the search for yield which has enabled the real estate market to post pre-crisis highs. Although interest rates have risen beyond record-low levels over the past few years, the real estate market remains quite strong along with consumer spending. Finally, the stock market has also benefited from low rates. The post-crisis period has thus far been particularly good for dividend securities relative to net historical returns. Because we believe the upper limit for short-term interest rates is being approached, our expectation of a continued low interest rate environment bodes well for the real estate and stock markets. Adding a strong labor market to the mix ensures the continuation of strong consumer spending and sentiment. On the surface the U.S. economy looks quite strong. The unemployment rate in the U.S. is the lowest it’s been in close to 70 years (1960s). However, such a low unemployment rate has led to a disproportionate low rate of wage growth. Although wages are rising, the rate of increase is below that expected given such a low unemployment rate. Thus, the exceptionally low unemployment rate alone should not be viewed to confirm the strength of the economy. Clearly there’s another side to the employment data that’s not being discussed openly by officials. Although wage growth has been incommensurate with the low unemployment rate, consumer price inflation remains relatively subdued. Based on current economic data and forward projections, we believe there is no need for the Fed to raise interest rates much more than 25 to 50 basis points (most likely) over the next 12 months. Moreover, persistently low U.S. Treasury yields continue to slant the Fed with a more dovish bias. Although solid, the U.S. economy is not nearly as strong as it appears on the surface. During a period when the fiscal stimulus is waning, trade uncertainty has caused variable damage to numerous sectors within the business world. Fortunately, consumer sentiment and spending remain very robust. In addition to rising geopolitical risks as well as worrisome weakening in the Eurozone, we cannot forget about the numerous risks embedded within China’s financial system. Combined with risks from trade, China’s financial system has become much more fragile. There are many other issues of concern, such as the persistently high...
Whenever I visit night markets in Asia I much prefer the ones where most of the patrons are locals. I've learned that the best food is usually served at markets geared towards locals. Sure, the food found at these markets is more basic, but it's also less expensive. More important, the food sold at local markets is always freshly prepared and quite tasty. And of course the experience of being at a local market as opposed to a market geared towards tourists is a treat in itself. This video shows a very basic night market. It's caters to the locals in the immediate area who work in the mall and the hospital nearby. You aren't likely to see many foreigners at this market. And while this market is certainly nothing impressive, it is authentic. And I like it.
Opening Statement from the July 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on July 7, 2019 Overview The global economy continues to feel the adverse impact of trade uncertainty. This dynamic has been reflected in the price of commodities. Meanwhile, although the U.S. economy remains relatively strong momentum has been waning for a number of months. Recently geopolitical events have weighed on crude oil pricing. Although the impact of geopolitics is likely to come and go in cycles, we expect this variable to remain an especially significant contributor to investor sentiment and thus short-term and perhaps even intermediate-term price movements. Crude Oil As expected Brent and WTI crude oil prices declined over the short term, but mounted a nice rally after bottoming off support levels we previously identified. As traders seek to navigate near-term volatility, they should continue to utilize our (what have thus far proven as) highly predictive price support and resistance levels in combination with geopolitical variables. Gold Fortunately, in the June issue we recommended traders take long positions in gold enabling them to capture huge profits from what would turn out to be fresh six-year highs. Our buy recommendation was obvious given the bounce off of the 1300 support. From there the rally strengthened, blowing past the 1320 bullish resistance. Although gold struggled to break past the 1350 bearish resistance, once it finally happened it soared to test the very significant 1400 bullish resistance. More details regarding how to manage this trade are presented in the gold forecast of this issue...
Over the years I've exposed the fact that the financial media is nothing more than a criminal organization that seeks to defraud and deceive its audience. The extent of securities fraud, lies and other crimes committed by the media is in the tune of tens of billions of dollars each year. And they get away with it because the same tribe that runs the media also not only runs Wall Street, but also the securities regulators and legal system. I've exposed the track records of the media's most highly revered "experts" showing you that these "experts" are in fact clowns and cons (simply perform a search on this website for your favorite financial media charlatan and you're likely to run across one or more entries). The media misrepresents their awful track records in order to dupe its unsuspecting and naive audience into thinking they will receive valuable insight if they read the articles and watch the shows featuring these "experts." All of this deceit generates a great deal of advertisement revenues. But it also lures a large pool of dummies that end up losing enormous amounts of money after having been swindled by following the recommendations of these "experts." This is where the media's business model expands from ad revenues into securities manipulation.
We have released a global economic presentation from December 2014 in order to give Members and Clients a look at the past. You should note how accurate Mike was with his many forecasts. We argue there is no one else in the world capable of delivering such an accurate assessment in such a wide scope of coverage.
Opening Statement from the June 2019 Intelligent Investor (part 1) Originally published on June 5, 2019 (pre-market release) Market Overview In the March 2019 U.S. Market Forecast (check the 21-minute mark) we discussed that until a trade deal was struck we expected the Dow to trade roughly between 26,000 and 24,000/24,500. We also mentioned that although the Dow could rise above 26,000 we did not believe it would hold this level given trade uncertainty, unimpressive earnings and weakness in the global economy. We also mentioned that investors could target position entries after a bounce in the Dow off of the 25,000 support. The following trading day the Dow did in fact bounce off of the 25,000 support and would rise to above 26,650 over the next five weeks. In the April U.S. Market Forecast (check the 18-minute mark) we discussed that investors should generally not be buying or reentering positions. Instead, we advised investors to be patient for a selloff down to the same mid to low-24,000 region we had discussed in March. In the May 2019 U.S. Market Forecast (check the 14-minute mark) we concluded that we were expecting lower levels in the U.S. stock market. We also stated that if adverse developments related to trade negotiations arose the market could sell off to the low-24,000 region we had been discussing since March. Recently and without any warning, Trump announced plans to begin placing tariffs on all Mexican imports starting at 5 percent, and gradually increasing up to 25 percent. Even more surprising was that he threatened to impose these tariffs in order to pressure the Mexican government to do a better job preventing migrant caravans from South and Central America from moving into Mexico en route to the U.S. This certainly qualified as an adverse development in trade negotiations and thus led to a large selloff in the U.S. markets down to a low of 24,689 in the Dow. This was the time when investors should have begun buying. Since then the market has rallied.
Opening Statement from the June 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on June 2, 2019 Overview The global economy continues to feel the adverse impact of trade uncertainty. This dynamic has been reflected in the price of commodities. Meanwhile, although the U.S. economy remains relatively strong momentum has been waning for a number of months. Given the recommendations from within the May 2019 issue of the CCPM Forecaster, we are not at all surprised that many of the commodities we cover encountered sharp price reversals. But we generally would not treat rallies in select commodities as an accurate reflection of the longer-term trend. We believe many commodities were oversold over the short term, so the recent rally was merely a response to this. Finally, low U.S. Treasury yields continue to pose a significant concern. With the effective federal funds rate currently at 2.42 percent, it is of no surprise that the yield on 3-month U.S. Treasury bills is 2.38 percent (as of May 31). In contrast, the 10-year U.S. Treasury Note is yielding a mere 2.14 percent (as of May 31). Therefore, investors receive a higher rate of return in addition to lower risk if they purchase 3-month T-Bills versus 10-year Treasury Notes. This phenomenon is often referred to as an inverted yield curve, although other maturities are used when analyzing this curve. As we have mentioned in the past, the fact that the yield curve has inverted should not be taken to be particularly significant by itself, given the large and unknown distortions in asset pricing as a result of radical monetary policy actions of the past decade. Regardless, the persistently low yield seen in the 10-year Treasury remains of great concern for a variety of reasons. Crude Oil As expected, crude oil sold off once geopolitical factors responsible for driving pricing beyond reasonable values faded. Crude oil is now being priced according to supply-demand expectations which are bearish. Although Brent and WTI crude have sold off back down to the trading range we previously defined based solely on macroeconomic dynamics, there’s a good possibility that pricing will head lower over the short term. It should be noted that the price behavior of crude oil has mirrored our forecasts with the highest of precision for quite some time. Gold As forecast, gold pricing finally broke out...
The following piece reinforces what I have been stating countless times over the past several years. Anyone who wastes time watching or reading anything CNBC, Bloomberg, the Wall Street journal, Barron's FOX, or any other Jewish-run media firm is naive and will surely get screwed. The same applies to websites that claim to provide investment research but in reality are part of the copywriting industry (Zach's, Motley Fool, Seeking Alpha, etc.). Failed hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson spent many years partnering with Jewish-run media platforms such as CNBC and Bloomberg attempting to lure naive suckers into his trades in order to deliver positive investment performance. Lining up to deliver a pitch to suckers who watch these scam networks is a very common "investment strategy" utilized by an entire slew of sleazy fund managers. As I have discussed in the past, this is one of the primary "investment strategies" used by fund managers who are often paraded throughout the media as "experts." In reality, just about every single one of these guys the media points to as an expert is either a clown or a con artist. This is a claim I have documented extensively over the years. Given that we all know that all media is run by the Jewish mafia, a basic understanding of Jewish tribalism will enable you to realize precisely who the fund managers are that are provided with constant media promotion. This is but only one of the many facets to the securities industry's many scams run by the Jewish mafia. Unfortunately, this media scam did not work out so well for Tilson despite being provided with several years of media exposure from his tribesmen in the media. After years of some stunningly bad calls, investors finally pulled what was left of their money from Tilson's fund. Tilson was forced to close down Kase Capital Management...
A couple of years ago I released one or two audios discussing my suspicions regarding Andrew Anglin and his website Daily Stormer (I cannot recall the name of these audios, so if someone knows please email us so I can post the links). I also released an audio summarizing my interactions with David Duke on the Daily Stormer. I won't go into the details of my conclusions with respect to Anglin's role in the "white nationalist movement" here. But basically I stated (this is from memory so the wording might be off a bit) the nature of his extreme lampooning style of criticism and Jew-bashing was
In this audio, Mike goes over the first few minutes of Bill Still's ridiculous documentary, the Money Masters and shows you how it's inaccurate, contradictory and serves to distract from the source of the problems in failing to name the Jewish mafia. As well, Mike exposes other Jewish shills such as Edward Griffin and Michael Lewis during the process of explaining how the Jewish media machine operates to brainwash and manipulate the public using lies which it turns into perceived facts. The low budget "Money Masters" documentary produced by Bill Still has been around for quite some time. It has been referenced by just about every conspiracy loon and hater of the Federal Reserve Bank. But once you come to realize that most of the claims made in "Money Masters" are wrong, you will begin to understand how so many people have formed a belief system based on fundamentally flawed information and assumptions. First and foremost, if you are going to listen to anyone about something that person should have sufficient expertise in the topic for which he is presenting.
Opening Statement from the May 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on May 19, 2019 Earnings With more than 90 percent of firms in the S&P 500 having reported earnings for Q1 2019, current results combined with estimates of the remaining firms yet to report indicate slight growth for the quarter at around 1.0% compared to Q1 2018. Revenue growth is expected to come in at just over 5 percent. Thus far just over 75 percent of firms have...
Opening Statement from the May 2019 Intelligent Investor Originally published on May 8, 2019 (pre-market release) Overview When compared to the rest of the world, the U.S. economy looks quite strong. But we have detected a mild decline in momentum despite strong overall economic data. With the impact of the fiscal stimulus set to diminish from here, trade uncertainty combined with global weakness is likely to further restrict growth potential. But again, we do not see much of a chance of a recession in the U.S. for 2019. In contrast, the odds for a recession in 2020 are considerably higher, but...
Opening Statement from the May 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on May 5, 2019 Overview After exiting a relatively strong year in 2018 the US economy continues to show signs of declining momentum.

This video was created several years ago, but it serves as a great reminder of the biggest scam no one else but Mike Stathis has exposed. This is the Jewish media scam. And it's responsible for the financial ruin of most people. Wake up, cast the media charlatans from your life and patch into the insights of the world's greatest investment mind, Mike Stathis.
As one of the world's foremost experts on trade, Mike Stathis has exposed realities about so-called free trade and globalization you will not hear elsewhere. In the video below Mike discusses some of the details in this excerpt.
Opening Statement from the April 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on April 14, 2019 Overview Consistent with previous forecasts, the US economy continues to show signs of weakening after coming out of a relatively strong year in 2018. With the impact of the fiscal stimulus poised to weaken from here, trade uncertainty along with the continued trend of global weakness is likely to further restrict growth. However, we do not see much of a chance of a recession in 2019. While the odds for a recession in 2020 are considerably higher, a great deal depends on the timing of the current trade disputes. As previously discussed in our market forecasting research from March, although the IMF lowered global growth estimates for 2018 from 3.7 percent to 3.5 percent in its January WEO Update, we believed this reduction was insufficient and thus would be revised further downward. In its April 2019 WEO, the IMF did in fact lower its estimate for global growth from 3.5 to 3.3 percent. Note that in its October WEO report the IMF estimated 2019 growth at 3.9 percent. This represents a substantial reduction in estimates over a 6-month period. We believe the IMF’s most recent revision to its 2019 global growth estimates to be a more accurate reflection of the current state of the global macroeconomic environment. The IMF has not yet reduced growth estimates for 2020 since its January reduction from 3.7 to 3.6 percent. But we believe a best-case scenario for growth in 2020 would be 3.5 percent. And if trade frictions continue beyond the summer of 2019,
Opening Statement from the April 2019 Intelligent Investor Originally published on April 4, 2019 (pre-market release) Interest Rates In the December 2018 Intelligent Investor and Market Forecaster, we discussed our view that the Federal Reserve was not likely to raise rates in 2019 prior to June 2019. During its recent meeting in February, the Fed made several statements pointing to a low chance of rate hikes prior to June 2019 confirming our previous sentiment. It is important to follow various interest rate expectations because this is a variable that has been significant in influencing investor sentiment for quite some time. It may be of interest to note that by late December 2018, Goldman Sachs had lowered its estimate from four to three rate hikes. More recently, Goldman reduced its estimate to one hike for the entire 2019 year. At the end of 2018, both JPMorgan and Barclays felt the Fed would raise rates four times in 2019. Two months later JPMorgan cut its forecast to two rate hikes for 2019. But by March 2019, after the Fed’s latest meeting, JP Morgan cut its rate forecast to one hike for 2019. Barclays has cut its previous forecast of four rate hikes to two in 2019. Most investors have interpreted the Fed’s latest meeting in March to mean that no more rate hikes are expected for 2019. We do not agree with this interpretation (as discussed in an audio on the website). Interestingly, more than 90% of investors believe the Fed will cut rates by 25 basis points before the end of 2019. This expectation is in contrast to previous Fed fund futures data prior to the Fed’s March meeting that that implied investors were expecting one rate hike in 2019. Although it is a possibility, we currently see no supporting evidence that would justify a rate cut in 2019. In fact, we believe the Fed will
Opening Statement from the April 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on April 1, 2019 (pre-market release) Overview The severe sell off in the stocks during the last quarter of 2018 resulted in annual losses for all equities markets. And although the stock and bond markets have largely recovered from these losses, the commodities market is still lingering as the trend of weakened global growth has become a more prominent concern. As we predicted in January, the ECB has recently stated that it is not likely to raise short-term interest rates in 2019. We do believe the ECB could raise rates in December if Washington strikes a timely trade deal with China. But this would require a significant boost in Eurozone economic activity. Overall, we do not believe the ECB should raise rates any time in 2019 other than as a symbolic gesture. Oil Crude oil pricing has remained range bound as forecast. However, pricing could exceed our upper range over the short to intermediate term as a result of OPEC’s reactions to waning demand. At the same time, one or more geopolitical issues could lead to significant departure of crude pricing according to normal supply and demand dynamics. Overall, we believe oil pricing is likely to continue to rise beyond our upper limits despite macroeconomic dynamics that would otherwise indicate a price decline. However, we do not expect these higher price levels to hold unless OPEC persists in its refusal to boost output. Given the political pressure faced by Saudi Arabia, we expect OPEC to eventually give in to recent demands made by Trump to boost output.

Opening Statement from the March 2019 Intelligent Investor Originally published on March 7, 2019 (pre-market release) Overview Due to a trend of heightened weakness in the region it should be apparent that the ECB is unlikely to raise interest rates by its previous target date of June 2019. Without a significant firming up in the E.U. economy, a rate hike in 2019 would not make much sense other than as a symbolic gesture. However, a timely trade deal between the U.S. and China could boost global business sentiment sufficiently to improve the situation. The trend of interest rate hikes by the Fed has strengthened the U.S. dollar against most currencies resulting in higher funding costs for many nations, especially emerging economies. Commodities pricing remains weak due to tepid demand. Worries over an economic contraction have deepened causing investors to flock into long bonds. This has caused the yield curve to flatten which itself has created
Opening Statement from the March 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on March 4, 2019 (pre-market release) Overview The severe sell off in the stock market during the last quarter of 2018 resulted in annual losses for all equities markets. Despite the strong and rapid rebound in the markets, deceleration of global growth continues to be of concern, especially given the lingering trade dispute between the U.S. and China. Although corporate earnings growth is expected to decline a great deal relative to that seen in 2018, the U.S. economy remains relatively strong, with low unemployment, strong consumer spending, high consumer confidence and modest wage growth. In contrast, significant pockets of risk continue to build throughout the globe. Uncertainty regarding
Were you scared out of the stock market over the past several years as a result of something you read or heard from one or more fear-mongering clowns? You know who many of these fear mongering clowns are. They're the guys who have been preaching doom and gloom for years. And I'm willing to bet they'll be preaching the same bull shit until the day they die. How can I be so sure of this? Because doom and gloom is their sales pitch. They're in the (shady and arguably illegal) business of sales based on manipulation of your emotions using lies, exaggerations and many tactics too lengthy to mention here. People who paint a never changing narrative are far from credible. And they certainly aren't analysts. They're shifty hucksters seeking to prey off your fear and anxiety; fear and anxiety that they've injected into your mind. And once you've accepted this narrative, it's extremely difficult to break away from the web of deceit and mind control. If you've fallen for the fear mongering narrative or any other theme based on sketchy claims, I have some bad news for you. You're in a cult. The man made Climate Change narrative is another example of a cult. So why do some people pursue this route of creating a business out of fear and doom? Because they're dishonest, greedy, disgusting, money-grubbing SOBs. And they worship money so much that they have no regard for those they fleece and the lives they destroy. These scum bags are the same people who preach unfettered capitalism as the best approach, but only because it means fewer options for legal recourse once they've scammed you. So if you've been fooled by their libertarian "get the government out of our lives" rants, you've been fooled again. At the end of the day most of these fear mongering hucksters are committing fraud because they're earning an income based on lies. Okay I get it. At the time you didn't realize they were clowns and cons looking to deceive and swindle you. Fair enough, but only up until a certain point. If however by 2013 you were still stuck in this mind control cult of fear mongering charlatans, all I can say is God help you. Hopefully by now you've been able to wake up. I like to think that my work exposing this huge racket has helped a good number of people wake up. I've sacrificed a huge loss in income as a result of this mission to expose these scam artists. But I've done so because it's something that needs to be exposed since so many people are being conned and steered into the gutter. My mission to expose these shysters is very much related to my overall objective to help average people become much better investors. And the process all starts with exposing the media, as well as the fear mongering hucksters. Let's get back to the main point. The bottom line is that you need to look at reality. The US stock market continues to enjoy its longest bull run in history. But have you benefited from this historic run? I know my research clients have because I've kept them in this bull market ever since having called the exact bottom on March 10, 2009. As well, I have helped my research clients navigate nearly all of the market selloffs and corrections since 2009, adding even more to their gains. Take a look at my track record and see for yourself.  I state this not to boast. I only state these verifiable facts in order to give you some perspective as to what's going on so you will realize that the media is gaming you. Imagine someone with my track record being black-balled by the media, while fear mongering con artists with terrible track records continue to be positioned as "experts" by the media. Once you realize that this is in fact what's been going on, you'll begin to see things much differently. At that point you will at least know how not to proceed if you want to become a successful investor. Perhaps you have stayed out of the stock market as a result of so many of the media's "experts" who have been warning about hyperinflation, a dollar collapse, a stock market collapse year after year, while telling you lies such as gold is money and doing everything they can to get you to buy gold and silver. I could rattle off a very long list of names of people who have been making these claims year after year. Here I'm going to focus on Michael Pento. You know folks, I find it really ironic as well as hilarious that the same clowns and charlatans who claim "fiat currencies" are "worthless" are also willing to exchange their gold and silver for your "worthless fiat currency." If you feel for this scam I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, but you've been had. Keep in mind that if guys like Michael Pento were not provided with constant media exposure, the masses would have never been exposed to their nonsense. Hence, the masses would have most likely stayed in the stock market, enjoying this great bull market run. Instead, most people have been scared of the longest bull market in stocks in US history. If you are one of these individuals you have the media to blame. You should this criminal enterprise knows how you feel. So let's take listen to what Michael Pento was saying back in 2010, the year the video below was recorded. As you listen to the video I want you to focus on his fear mongering lines. And I want you to think about the entire crew of fear mongering clowns (Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Jim Rickards, Harry Dent, etc.) who are promoted by the media as experts on a daily basis and have been for decades.
The following video was first released back in 2014. It represents a quick and unscripted analysis of the fake news BS artists featured on Hunter's fake news, fear mongering JewTube channel. First, I want you to spend some time to look at each guest Hunter has had on his fake news JT channel. You might be interested to know that nearly every single person Hunter (who is himself Jewish) has interviewed happens to be Jewish. Next, it's important to consider how or why this might be the case. With Jewish individuals comprising a mere 2% of the U.S. population, the fact that (at least) 99% of his guests are Jewish is quite strange. In fact, it’s statistically impossible for this to happen by random chance. Therefore, we must consider whether Hunter seeks only to feature Jewish individuals on his fake news channel, or whether Jewish individuals comprise the vast majority of gold pumping liars, fear-mongering broken clock idiots and scam artists. I'll let you think about that and come to your own conclusions. It should also be noted that Hunter often makes false claims about the clowns he interviews, including lying about and/or cherry picking their past statements and predictions in order to make them seem credible and reliable. No one with a decent memory and a normal functioning brain would be fooled by his predictable spins on the truth. That gives you a rough idea about his audience. For instance, when Hunter interviews Martin Armstrong he always points out how Armstrong is sought out by fund managers and so forth, and that he has been right about most things. Of course this is utter nonsense. Martin Armstrong is an uneducated idiot, liar and former Ponzi scheme criminal. He constantly dances around questions looking for ways to tell you how important (he wants you to think) he is. And let’s not forget that he started a Ponzi scheme in order to cover-up for massive losses he sustained while trading commodities. Hence, he’s a failed trader. It should be obvious that no sane investor would even listen to what the man has to say. Hunter also claims Peter Schiff, Jim Rickards and many other broken clock, fear-mongering, gold-pumping clowns have been right in most of their predictions. I have previously demonstrated in hundreds of videos and articles this is not even remotely true. These guys have some or the worst track records I have ever seen. Moreover, Rickards is one of the biggest BS artists, liars and charlatans in the entire gold-pumping, fear mongering syndicate. And Peter Schiff has turned into a laughing stock. The constant litany of false claims made by Hunter about his various Jewish guests is intentional. The purpose is to cause his uneducated nut job audience to believe the ridiculous claims made by these charlatans. Today, many people are simply either too lazy or too stupid to assess an individual's credibility or to even determine whether or not they have a decent track record. As a result, they most often rely on what others on the internet claim about these hucksters.
Unless you're familiar with Chris Martenson's fear-mongering "Crash Course" nonsense or a member of his Robert Kiyosaki-styled "Peak Prosperity" cult-like platform, you probably don't know who Adam Taggart is. Taggart is the guy behind the scenes responsible for marketing Martenson's Malthusian narrative to naive people. At least he has previously been behind the scenes. As of late, Taggart has been front and center serving as the marketing spokesman. You might recall that I previously exposed the reality about Chris Martenson many times in the past. See here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
Opening Statement from the February 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on February 18, 2019 The severe sell off in the stock market during the last quarter of 2018 resulted in annual losses for all equities markets. This irrational selling frenzy served as a reminder that prudent investors can never relax even during the longest bull market in U.S. history. Investors must always recognize and reevaluate numerous risk factors. But they must also know when to avoid obsessing over risk, as this too will lead to poor investment performance. Fortunately, the markets have mounted a tremendous rebound since the beginning of 2019, recouping most of what was lost in the final quarter. But numerous risks remain. Deceleration of global growth continues to be of concern, especially given the lingering trade dispute between the U.S. and China. Although corporate earnings growth is expected to decline a great deal relative to that seen in 2018, the U.S. economy remains relatively strong, with low unemployment, strong consumer spending, high consumer confidence and modest wage growth. In contrast, significant pockets of risk continue to build throughout the globe. Uncertainty regarding the completion of Brexit remains as a drag on the already weakening European economy. Meanwhile, Italy continues to present challenges to the EU. The trend of interest rate hikes by the Fed has strengthened the U.S. dollar against most currencies resulting in higher funding costs for many nations, especially emerging economies. Commodities pricing remains weak due to tepid demand. Worries about an economic contraction deepen causing investors to flock into long bonds. This has caused the yield curve to flatten which itself has created additional trepidation. Global debt has grown rapidly during the post-crisis period. Today, it’s estimated at just under $200 trillion, or more than 230% of global GDP with the United States, China and Japan as the top debtors.
How does Beijing intend to handle China's real estate bubble? Realizing the risks of the frequent housing boom-bust cycles, the Chinese government recently announced plans to develop a “long-term mechanism” for the residential housing market. Unlike the previous housing market policies which relied on administrative measures such as home purchase restrictions and macroprudential tools to manage house price cycles, the “long-term mechanism” aims to ensure sustained and stable development of the residential market by striking a balance between supply and demand while curbing speculation. Key elements of the mechanism include: (1) increasing land supply in cities where housing prices face stiff upward pressure by converting rural collective land and urban commercial land to residential land; (2) enhancing affordability by developing
Mike warned the public about the cryptocurrency scam many years ago in the same way that he also warned the public about the gold pumping syndicate. Here, Mike provides some followup commentary related to these scams.
The following video was first published in early 2018 shortly after the bitcoin bubble collapsed. This poor guy got sucked into the cryptocult at the wrong time.
Opening Statement from the February 2019 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on February 3, 2019 Overview There’s really nothing new to report relative to the January issue other than a pause in rate hikes as expected. The U.S. economy remains strong relative to much of the world with particular loss of momentum in the EU and Japan. Meanwhile, China’s weak economic data have investors optimistic that more economic stimulus is on the way. Although investor sentiment is considerably strong than the previous two months, all signs point to continued weakness in commodities going forward. U.S. Employment Data On Friday, February 1, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 304,000 jobs were added in January, smashing the consensus estimate of 165,000. However, the BLS revised job growth from the prior two months down by 70,000, bringing the three-month average to 241,000 jobs. Particularly encouraging were data measuring the employment-to-population ratio (EPOP) which rose to 60.7 for its highest reading during the post-crisis period. Even more impressive was the rise in the EPOP for prime-age (aged 25 to 54) male and female employment, from 86.1% to 86.5% and 73.4 to 73.5%, respectively marking the highest readings during the post-crisis period. Strangely, the impressive jobs data failed to boost the U.S. stock market beyond a negligible amount perhaps due to the overhang of numerous uncertainties and concerns such as U.S. trade negotiations with China, continued loss in economic momentum throughout much of the world during a period of record-low but gradually rising interest rates coupled to excessive debt.
Opening Statement from the January 2019 Dividend Gems Originally published on January 20, 2019 Overview The trend of mild deceleration in global growth continues, with China now at the focus after having recently shown significant signs of a slowdown. In contrast, the US economy remains solid. Most major economic metrics remain favorable, ensuring continuation of uninterrupted growth through 2019. As well, December’s impressive employment data from the BLS is consistent with the Fed’s bias for two rate hikes in 2019 as it seeks to shift monetary policy to a neutral stance. The progression of trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing remains

Opening Statement from the January 2019 Intelligent Investor Originally published on January 10, 2019 (pre-market release) Interest Rates In the December 2018 Intelligent Investor forecasting webinar, we stated that although we felt the chance of a 25-basis point rate hike in December was 98%, we believed the Fed would issue a dovish statement in order to appease investors. On December 19, 2018 the Federal Reserve raised the Fed funds rate by 25 basis points pushing short-term interest rate up to a range between 2.25 and 2.50%. Although Fed chairman Powell did in fact issue a dovish statement during the December meeting, his delivery was of insufficient substance to please investors. As a result, the capital markets mounted a severe selloff thereafter. Looking forward we deem the Fed’s bias for two 25-basis point rate hikes in 2019 as appropriate assuming economic data comes in as expected. As stated in the December 2018 Intelligent Investor, we would be surprised if the Fed were to raise interest rates before June unless we see a trend of blowout data (e.g. a “three-peat” of the December jobs data). Apparently, Wall Street holds a different view. Due to the especially weak December seen in the stock market, as of January 5, 2019, several Wall Street strategists and economists expect the next move by the Fed to be a rate cut (specifically Blackrock and Wells Fargo). Others believe the Fed will not raise rates at all in 2019. In contrast, as of December 2018, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan expect the Fed to raise rates four times in 2019. We consider this forecast to be even more ridiculous than the rate cut expectations by Blackrock and Wells Fargo. Although some economists still favor two rate hikes, the overall percentage maintaining this view has declined significantly since December. But the reduction has only come as a result of the recent volatility in the capital markets as opposed to weakness in the US economy. It is important to emphasize that there remains no weakness in the US economy to justify cutting interest rates. At the same time, because the current Fed funds rate of 2.25% to 2.50% is at least 50 basis points below the estimated neutral rate, monetary policy remains slightly stimulatory. Given the strength in the US economy there is no need for monetary stimulus. If prolonged, this unneeded stimulus will lead to inflation which would most likely evolve into a recession. In short, we believe those calling for a rate cut as the Fed’s next move are focusing too much on the stock market and/or yield curve and too little on...

I'll be releasing more emails from the financial crisis period in the future when I think about it and as I come across these emails. For now, I have released an email I sent to Michael Reagan in 2010 in response to his ridiculous denials when I called into his show sometime around 2008 in order to shed light as to what I believed was going to happen. As with all of the emails I expect to post, the reason for posting this one is to show the world how the media was just as responsible as Wall Street in causing people to lose their homes, jobs, retirement hopes and more because they were in a position to allow me to warn the public. Instead they denied problems or else promoted charlatans like Peter Schiff who ended up causing more harm to investors than if they had done nothing.

Opening Statement from the December 2018 Intelligent Investor Originally published on December 5, 2018 (pre-market release) US Economy Despite the recent deceleration in global economic growth, the US economy remains solid even though it has been unable to escape lower growth estimates for 2018 and 2019. Regardless, most major economic metrics remain favorable, ensuring continuation of uninterrupted growth in 2019. Even wage growth has picked up over the past year which has factored into the Fed’s forecast for future rate hikes. Although the US will enter 2019 with decelerating momentum, we expect corporate earnings growth, consumer sentiment, unemployment, inflation and interest rates to remain at very healthy levels. Interest Rates In early October Fed Chairman Powell made a vague statement regarding the future direction of short-term interest rates. His statement was interpreted by investors to imply many more rate hikes would be forthcoming over the next few years. In short, Powell stated that the current short-term rates were “probably a long way from the neutral rate.” Considering the Fed had been providing future rate hike forecasts linked to relevant economic data for close to two years, investors appear to have overemphasized the meaning of Powell’s nondescript statement. Accordingly, the stock market selloff in early October commenced as a result of investor misinterpretation of Powell’s statement. When the Fed met recently, Powell altered his wording when commenting on interest rates. In short, he stated that short-term interest rates are currently “just below the neutral rate” despite the fact that rates had not been raised since he spoke in early October. Given that the Fed had previously discussed targeting rate hikes to a level slightly above the neutral rate, it seems as if investors interpreted Powell’s recent statement (in late November) to mean that he has lowered his rate hike projections. This pleased investors who responded by piling into the stock market last week. Although Powell’s comments regarding where rates need to be were just as vague in November as they were in October, investors assumed his recent statement was an indication of a more dovish posture relative to his position in early October. Did Powell’s subtle change in wording really reflect a change in rate hike estimates by the Fed? We...
Opening Statement from the December 2018 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on December 2, 2018 Overview Commodity prices remain weak due to the loss of economic momentum throughout the globe. Most notably, broad-based commodity indexes sustained large declines as a result of the strong selloff in crude oil. Trade negotiations continue to lead the way in terms of future catalysts for the capital markets, along with expectations of interest rate hikes. President Trump just agreed not to boost tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from 10% to 25%, originally set to become effective on 1 January of 2019. Instead, the tariffs will be put on hold for 90 days in order give Washington and China more time to negotiate a mutually agreeable deal. The news is likely to provide a boost to the capital markets at least in the short term. Oil After facing a relentless selloff persisting for several weeks, crude oil looks to be in the process of forming a bottom, although sentiment remains negative and could easily push prices lower...
Previously I exposed my premise that Nasdaq.com is engaging in criminal activities by selling its site space to a variety of Jewish con artists. In my opinion, these business practices by Nasdaq are absolutely criminal because investors are under the impression that Nasdaq.com is a source of unbiased information. After all, it is the parent website of the Nasdaq exchange, right? Let's take a close look at what's going on. Before we begin, I want to tell you that I was stunned when I realized what was happening.
So how does one manipulate securities while building a meaningless track record? Just watch what Andrew Left does as you examine the annotated images below. First, he pays for publicity. If you don't realize that the "article" below is in reality a paid press release disguised as news, you should first note that the "article" is not in-depth (Left is too much of a moron to come up with anything of both substance and detail, so he is unable to even pretend he has even a remote level of insight and intellect), was written by some guy working in a Reuters office in India. Next, the reporter posts a link to Left's boiler room website (this is the object of the "article"...to entice the reader to check out his blog turned website). The signs of paid PR here are so obvious. Being featured on a well-known news publication like Reuters can go a long way with typical naive investors who fail to realize that Reuters has not been reliable for many years. As well, the typical investor is not likely to realize that Left is nothing more than a con man and idiot seeking to manipulate stocks while attempting to build a track record from making rinky dink calls.

Opening Statement from the October 2018 Dividend Gems Originally published on October 14, 2018 As expected, the Federal Reserve raised its Federal funds rate to 2.25% on September 26. A fourth rate hike of 25 basis points in 2018 is highly likely to be announced during the Fed’s December meeting. We believe the Fed is moving along prudently given the most relevant macroeconomic variables. Given the high probability of an additional 25 basis point rate hike in December, as well as a series of rate hikes totaling 75 basis points in 2019, we are likely to head into 2020 with short-term rates slightly above 3.00%. Moving forward investors should continue to monitor U.S. employment data and wage growth along with other inflation indicators such as the core PCE. We must also factor the extent of inflation as a result of tariffs. These variables will largely determine the pace of interest rate hikes over the next few years. When interest rate forecasts are discussed two key topics of current interest should be considered. The first topic relates to capital flows. We have been discussing the potential consequences of rising short-term interest rates in the U.S. well in advance of other nations. In short, the Federal Reserve can only raise short-term interest rates so much before the rest of the world is pressured to raise rates. Within this discussion it is most critical to consider capital outflows specifically from developing nations. Already, several developing nations have begun to raise interest rates in an attempt to neutralize the impact of rate hikes in the U.S. Although containing inflation could be more of a factor for rate hikes down the road, we believe the current impetus for rate hikes in developing nations is centered on improving currency stability. Finally, even advanced nations will need to begin raising rates over the next 12 months in order to minimize capital outflows. The second topic of interest pertains to what short-term interest rate the Fed considers to reflect “neutral” monetary policy. This discussion has implications...
Opening Statement from the October 2018 Intelligent Investor Originally published on October 4, 2018 (pre-market release) As it stands today, the U.S. economy is serving as the main driving force for the entire globe... But it is important to keep in mind that much of the recent strength in the U.S. economy has been due to the fiscal stimulus centered on debt-financed tax cuts for corporations and wealthy as opposed benefits which would have a lasting impact on growth such as the repair and modernization of America’s aging infrastructure. China We believe China’s economy has already sustained sizable damage as a result of tariffs from Washington. As a reminder, China’s economy was already vulnerable to external disruptions as a result of its ongoing mission to transition from a...
Perhaps you recall Harry Dent's "Safe Asset Slaughter" marketing pitch. You might not be surprised to learn that Dent has recently released a new video pitch (see below). It seems that Dent and his copyrighting monkeys pump out new marketing gimmicks every day while releasing new video pitches each month. It's no wonder why Dent has no idea what's going on with the economy and stock market. He's spending all of his time creating fear-mongering videos, copyrighting pitches and other sales and marketing tactics. If you're thinking this focus on sales and marketing of fear and greed reminds you of Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers and the rest of the Jewish marketing clowns, I was thinking the same thing. With so many pitches released so often it might seem difficult to keep up with Dent's latest gimmick unless you're a dedicated follower of his nonsense. There's no reason why you should be confused as to which pitch Dent is rambling about. It's really pretty simple. All you have to remember is that Dent changes the name of monthly video pitch while the content pretty much stays the same. Typically his pitch goes something like this.... "Economics has failed in its promise to predict the markets. Back in the 1980s when I studied at Harvard..." First he makes the false claim that economics was intended to predict the markets and then he wants you to know that he studied at Harvard hoping you'll think that gives him credibility. You know Harvard right? It's where many of the economists who "failed to predict the markets" also studied. "We use demographics to predict consumer behavior and this allows us to predict the economy which enables us to forecast the markets..." Next Dent lays into his demographics voodoo nonsense. Not only has demographics been proven over and over again as a failed indicator of market performance, Dent's approach to demographics is laughable. "Hello, My name is Harry Dent [proceeds with more false logic and lies about his track record]....here at Dent Research [more bull shit]....[now for the one hour pitch]." Of course, as flawed as the field of economics is, even the most enthusiastic economists, if they are credible and honest, have never claimed economic tools enable them to predict anything. And it doesn't matter where you went to college Harry. All that really matters is your track record. And you track record completely sucks which is why you are a copyrighting clown posing as an analyst and economist. Have a look at Dent's track record here. Today's pitch is yet another spin on Dent's Safe Asset horse crap. You may be wondering why I would take the time out of my busy day to post this material and to record Dent's pitch and post it when I could be devoting my time to more productive activities. At the very least I could use this time for leisure, right? The reality is that (with the exception of the audios I make) this particular post is actually one of the least-time consuming that I've made in a long time. It took me only a few hours. In total I spent around five hours reading Dent's email, watching and recording his video, reformatting and uploading it, annotating the images (shown below) and publishing this post. If that sounds like a good deal of time for such a small amount of content, you have no idea how much effort it takes to create completely original content that's of unique value. What few people realize is the fact that many of the videos I create consume a huge amount of time. In the past I've mentioned that some of my longer articles and even videos can take several hundred hours to complete. For instance, the recent video I made exposing Paul Watson took me more than 40 hours to make. That's pretty typical for a video of that length. Now imagine how many of those types of videos I've created over the years...hundreds. In fact, I've gone on record as stating that I spend the majority of my time creating content to expose the financial media charlatans and the tricks of the media versus actually creating investment content and research. Why? Because understanding the tricks and deceit of the media is the single most important thing you can do as an investor. So relatively speaking, the effort I put into creating this post was close to nil. Some of you might be thinking that I could have devoted the time I've spent making these videos and writing articles exposing financial media charlatans towards investment related projects; projects that would provide you with more investment insight; projects that would directly boost my sales and fatten my wallet. After all, I've never made a single penny from any of these videos or articles so isn't it an enormous waste to be spending so much of my time and effort on projects that do not directly provide investment insight and resources all while boosting sales? Before I answer this by the way, I'd like you to identify anyone else in the world who has spent so much time, energy and money making content that reveals the truth and that doesnot generate any income. My answer to this is the following will be addressed in two portions. First of all, the time and effort I spend on this type of content does raise the intelligence of investors. In fact, this facet of education is found no other place in the world other than this website. There are many components required prior to gaining an advanced understanding of complex fields. Investing is a complex field. Although virtually no one else in the world addresses the importance of understanding how the financial media works as a vital part of the process involved in advancing your prospects as an investor, without this component you are likely to do much worse. Second, the objective here is not to run a business. My objective is to expose the truth so that you become a much better informed, sharper, wiser investor, consumer and individual. The bottom line is that everything I do at AVAIA...all of the content I produce is specifically focused on helping you become a better, more independent investor, from the audios, videos and articles to the investment research. So if you've often wondered why I seem to spend so much time on projects that do not provide investment insight and resources, you fail to appreciate the importance of understanding the enemies of investors. As an investor your enemies are Wall Street, the financial media and the so-called "experts" promoted by the financial media. As you watch the video below ask yourself how the typical person would react to the statements made by Dent. Think about how the typical person might react to the statements made by Dent. Ask yourself if you can spot the lies, deception, faulty logic, and psychological trickery that's characteristic of this army of copyrighting cons. In short, watching the following video serves as an exercise in raising the portion of your intellect that's devoted towards detecting charlatans.
Opening Statement from the October 2018 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on October 1, 2018 (pre-market) Overview Global growth remains solid but has progressively weakened over the past few months. After enjoying more than a year of improving economic and market conditions accompanied by uniform macroeconomic growth, this trend is losing momentum. In fact, the global economic landscape is becoming more fragmented and uncertain. Leading this period of uncertainty are issues pertaining to global trade policy, followed by fiscal and monetary policy. The emerging markets have been hit hard due to trade uncertainty, with Southeast Asia and Latin America having received a great deal of the blow. Notably we are now seeing definite signs of economic weakness in China as a result of U.S. tariffs. Moreover, South Korea continues to show weakness along with Taiwan and a host of other nations. The number one question on the minds of investors is...
Dennis Gartman is one of the many countless contrarian indicators constantly featured in the Jewish-run media crime syndicate as an "expert" despite getting nearly everything wrong nearly all of the time. But if you are Jewish, you will receive favorable treatment by Jewish-run industries. This is a fact. It's discrimination. It's fraud. And it's contributing to the fake news epidemic.
Risk is a very difficult concept for most investors to appreciate. And it's near impossible for novice investors to even comprehend investment risk. As you can imagine, novice investors focus on profits, not because they are greedy. They focus on profits because they do not know much about the risks. No one in the world will ever develop a way to prevent losses. But the sooner you come to appreciate investment risk, the sooner you will begin to limit your investment losses. Otherwise, you will learn the importance of investment risk only after you have experienced a series of very large losses. Most investors fail to account adequately for investment risk because there really are no commonly accepted definitions of investment risk that are valid. The most commonly accepted measure of investment risk can be found in every college finance textbook. It's also been integrated into securities guidelines for suitability standards when licensed investment professionals are managing client funds. Of course I am referring to beta. If you don't know what a security's beta is this discussion is over your head so I suggest you get up to speed and then come back. Unfortunately, the type of risk measured by beta is not at all what the investment world claims it to be. Let me be clear here. Beta is...

Some of you might have heard the name Rick Rule since he's a colleague of our friend Eric Sprott. Rick works at the US division of Sprott Inc. (perhaps the name has changed since the parent company has gone through at least one reorg over the past few years). As you might recall, I've previously exposed Eric Sprott and his shenanigans.
When the Jewish mafia scam known as Adsense tags ads to content located on one of its sister scam portals such as YouTube, it means you are paying higher prices for toothpaste, toilet paper, food and countless other items. In this manner the Jewish mafia is forcing you to support pornography against your will when you buy consumer items that you must have. This is massive fraud.

Opening Statement from the September 2018 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on September 2, 2018 Overview The global economy continues to show some signs of weakness as a result of trade uncertainty, but remains on solid ground. From a longer term standpoint we to believe the greatest risks to global economic growth stem from China. The commodities selloff progressed through the midpoint of August before retracing as the US dollar declined. Notably, during August price changes for most commodities were driven primarily by price movements in the US dollar. China Trade tensions between Washington and Beijing are adding further strain on China’s economic growth picture, which already faces credit growth constraints during a critical period as it seeks to transition from an export-based manufacturing economy to a service economy based on primarily domestic consumption. Even though the Chinese stock market has made an impressive rebound since bottoming in May, it took a considerable selloff in the US dollar to halt the collapse in the yuan. USD Although the US dollar sold off after reaching a high of 97, we believe this high will be tested in coming weeks. Looking ahead, resolution of current trade disagreements between the US...

As you all know, I never watch CNBC. My aversion for trash and scams doesn't stop with CNBC. I never pay any attention to any financial media because I realize what a huge disinfo scam it is. Some people never learn. As usual, I'll be blunt. If you're still paying attention to the media you're going to continue losing money. Remember that all ad-based content is a JEWISH scam, from all broadcast and print media, to all internet and social media. Good God, if you haven't figured this out by now you're basically hopeless!
Over the decades, Harry Dent has positioned attempted to position himself as a legitimate "economist." But he is nothing more than a typical broken clock. Sure Dent flip-flops, back tracks and even attempts to rewrite his terrible predictions into "successful calls." For this Dent is somewhat unique, as the majority of copyrighting clowns usually keep charging forward with their predictable dogmas.
Opening Statement from the August 2018 Dividend Gems Originally published on August 19, 2018 Overview The global economy remains on solid ground despite having been negatively impacted by uncertainty regarding global trade. The IMF confirmed this sentiment in its July 2018 World Economic Outlook as it acknowledged less uniform growth due to trade tensions, higher oil pricing and changes in capital flows due to monetary policy actions by the Federal Reserve. While the IMF’s global growth estimates for 2018 and 2019 remain unchanged at 3.9 percent, growth has been revised slightly downward in the Eurozone, Japan and the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, Brazil’s economic recovery remains fragile due to rising social unrest amid a history economic and political crisis. India’s economic growth
Although I've never previously discussed Simon Black (a very Jewish name by the way), I've actually known about him for around seven years now. In fact I had already created a file on him several years ago with the intent of exposing his con games, but I had not come across any mention of him until recently. As readers will recall, I tend to focus on exposing disinformation figureheads, scam artists and other parasitic profiteers commensurate with their level of media exposure and/or how much they are spreading their nonsense through other means (i.e. email marketing, etc.). I prioritize my efforts in this manner because the more people these cons are reaching, the more people are being taken. It turns out that Mr. Black has been targeting his prey by less direct methods which have escaped my radar (via links and mention through shady websites and email newsletters). Black began pumping out his Sovereign Man nonsense to knucklehead followers of many of the clowns under the Agora Financial umbrella such as Casey Research, Stansberry Research and many others. At that time he never appeared in public. I immediately thought this to be quite strange. Instead, he began using fake pictures when posting ads for his scams. I suppose this "air of mystery" was part of his pitch. Nice fake pic Simon. Sorry but you don't look like a model. As you will soon see, Simon looks like a complete charlatan. And in his case, looks are NOT deceiving. Watch the video below and you will see what a sleazy fake and charlatan this guy is. Ask yourself why this clown used a fake pic of himself instead of using his real pic. Oh that's right. He wanted to portray the impression that he's some "mysterious and cool, modeling-looking" guy. Folks, when you stoop that low to create an impression, it should be obvious that you're dealing with a huge huckster. Now that Black is coming out and hitting more traditional avenues of communication used by the charlatan network, I suspect this change in game plan is due to desperation to land more business since the supply of fear-mongering shit out there has become oversaturated. So after all of these years of not seeing anything from Simon, how did I come across him recently? I stumbled onto Simon when I was researching Chris Martinson. Are you surprised? After digging a little deeper it turns out that Martenson and Black joined master charlatans Peter Schiff and Robert Kiyosaki on a real estate cruise run by some jugheads. Note the somewhat common tactic often used by charlatans in order to give the impression that they are noble and successful. They claim they want to "give back to the community." And establishing a "charitable fundation" or similar entity often gives the impression (to gullible people) that they are "successful/wealthy" enough to fund these programs, most of which are not anything they claim to be. The remainder of the images (most of which have been annotated) should be sufficient to show what a shyster this guy is. Make sure to pay attention to some of the examples of the clowns he hangs with as a reminder that you are judged by the company you keep.
Opening Statement from the August 2018 Intelligent Investor (Part 1: Securities Analysis) Originally published on August 10, 2018 (pre-market release) Overview Despite continued signs of strength in the economy and the trend of strong earnings growth, investors remain primarily focused on the uncertainty surrounding Trump’s approach to global trade. In response emerging markets have been hit hard, with Southeast Asia and Latin America having received a great deal of the adverse impact of trade uncertainty.

Opening Statement from the August 2018 CCPM Forecaster Originally published on August 5, 2018 Overview Most commodities continue to sell off in response to USD strength, as well as worries of adverse consequences of trade tensions. Previously we discussed that the global economy remains on solid ground despite having been negatively impacted by uncertainty in global trade dynamics. The IMF confirmed our sentiment in its July 2018 World Economic Outlook as it acknowledged less uniform growth due to trade tensions, higher oil pricing and changes in capital flows as a result of monetary policy actions by the Federal Reserve. While the IMF’s global growth estimates for 2018 and 2019 remain unchanged at 3.9 percent, estimates have been revised slightly downward in the Eurozone, Japan and the United Kingdom. Meanwhile... China After mounting a nice retracement rally, the Chinese stock market sold off back down into bear market territory, erasing all the gains made since the June lows as a result of escalating trade tensions with the U.S. In addition, the yuan continued to sell off. Trade tensions between Washington and Beijing are adding further strain on China’s economic growth picture, which already faces credit growth constraints during a critical period... US Dollar Strength We have been forecasting a retracement in the USD index with a high probability of a reversal in the bullish trend since the beginning of 2017. Since that time the USD index has declined by as much as 15%. We also put a bottom target in the USD index of the mid to low-80s. The USD index bottomed at 88 and has since mounted a strong rally largely as investors seek the dollar’s safe haven status. Moreover, it appears that investors are finally allowing the USD to appreciate in accordance with interest rate hikes from the Fed. We believe if it were not for Washington’s focus on trade the USD would have declined to the mid-80s. Thus, we must question to what extend the USD will weaken once trade negotiations have been made. Resolution of current trade disagreements is likely to... Interest Rates As expected, the Federal Reserve kept the target range for the federal funds rate at 1.75 percent to 2.00 percent during its August 2018 meeting. The Fed appears to be leaning towards a September rate hike of 25 basis points. We believe this is the right move given the most relevant macroeconomic variables. Finally, a fourth rate hike of 25 basis points in 2018 is highly likely. Given the high chance of a boost in the Fed funds rate by... Inflation Watch Over the past 18 months we have noted the gradual pickup in global inflation, specifically pointing to improvements made in the Eurozone and Japan. While inflation remains below many official targets, gradual progress continues to be made. At the same time current trade tensions... It is important to have an idea about future inflation rates because it helps us forecast short-term interest rates which of course impacts... As the only major economy in a trend of rising short-term interest rates, it is of especially high importance to monitor macroeconomic variables from within the U.S. Accordingly, we believe... Focus on the Yield Curve In recent weeks investors have been focused on the U.S. Treasury yield curve. The yield curve is an important variable to consider because it is one of the variables used by the Fed when deciding whether or not to change short-term interest rates. Currently the yield curve is in the process of flattening. The significance of a flat yield curve is that it represents the stage prior to an inverted yield curve. And an inverted yield curve has often served as a leading indicator of a recession. Incidentally, some Fed officials have cautioned that interest rates should be raised more slowly than estimates indicate in order to avoid an inverted yield curve which could materialize as early as 2019. At this point we...
