AVAIA Investment Boot Camp Series 3

Led by One of the Top Investment Minds in the World

Now that you've completed Boot Camp Series 1 & 2, you're ready for Series 3. 

Information about Boot Camp Series 1 & Series 2.

If you don't already know why Mike is arguably the world's leading investment analyst, we encourage you to take some time to examine his full investment research track record. 

See here, here, and here for Mike's world-leading track record on the 2008 financial crisis. 

More of Mike's track record can be seen herehereherehereherehere and here.

Netflix (NFLX)

How would you like to have bought Netflix (NFLX) at $3/share?  

Everyone knows what a great company Netflix (NFLX) is today.

Mike recommended NFLX in 2008 at $3 to take over video rentals.

He first recommended NFLX in the Wall Street Investment Bible.

He also predicted Blockbuster Video would go bankrupt. 

And he has recommended it every year since then. 

Nvidia (NVDA)

How would you like to have bought Nvidia (NVDA) at $2.70/share? 1

Everyone realizes how dominant Nvidia (NVDA) is today.

Mike started recommending NVDA  to his research clients in 2009.

He also listed NVDA as his #1 stock for long-term growth in 2009.  

Mike has kept NVDA on this recommended list each year since then.

1 this number had to be reduced from $11 reported in previous documentations of our track record in order to adjust for the recent 5-for-1 stock split.

We have many other examples of amazing calls Mike has made. 

But there's much more to Mike's research than spotting future market leaders early on.

Ever since Mike Stathis accurately forecast the 2008 financial crisis nearly two years in advance,* he has accurately forecast most of the major stock market selloffs and recommended reentering the market at or very close to the bottom, enabling more active investors to add even more gains.   

*See here, here, and here for Mike's world-leading track record on the 2008 financial crisis. 

Mike is also one of the top distressed securities analysts in the world.

And he has the track record to prove it.  

For instance, Mike predicted the following bankruptcies: 

  • Eastman Kodak
  • Enron
  • Bombay Company
  • Circuit City
  • Bon Ton
  • Tuesday Morning
  • Steinmart
  • Radio Shack
  • Sears Holding Company
  • Frontier Communications
  • Winstar Communications
  • SunEdison 
  • JC Penny
  • Bed, Bath & Beyond

There's even a longer list of stocks Mike predicted would avoid bankruptcy after having become distressed. This is where you can make huge money. 

But you need to be very careful because if you're wrong you can lose it all. 

If you're able to get it right just 60% of the time you're doing pretty good. Mike's track record of predicting companies that would rebound from being distressed is thus far 100% (as of February 2024).

More About Our Boot Camp Series

Each presentation was created and delivered by one of the top investment minds in the world. 

We believe the Boot Camp Series to be the best investment education in the world. 

This material is very unique, essential and extremely valuable for furthering your investment education. Perhaps most important, each presentation was created and delivered by one of the top investment minds in the world. 

Having access to the best investment research in the world can only help you so much. If you do not understand how to interpret and utilize the research to suit your own skill level and investment strategy, you might not be able to properly utilize the research.  Remember, real investment research does not advise you to consistently take specific actions. Rather, it provides general guidance with additional considerations which enable you to formulate a decision tree based on your own investment strategy along with any changes that occur once the research has been published.

In short, you must understand what you are doing. You must also have good judgment. This means you need to understand many things about the investment process that you will never learn from reading investment books. In fact, reading investment books is a huge waste of time and is usually even detrimental to becoming a really good investor. So where does one turn for the insight they need to become a great investor?

Unless you're a very experienced and successful investment professional, you're not likely to understand what you need to go at it on your own or even with our research. That's why we've created the AVA Investment Analytics Investment Boot Camp.

If you glance at the topics of discussion you will notice the absence of very generic and basic concepts such as a discussion of P/E ratios and so forth. This was intentional. We want enrollees to get the most for their money so Mike has designed this program to include concepts and insights beyond the very basic material. Basic information can be obtained for free everywhere but is only worth what you pay for it which is nothing.

Most investors are likely to view this material as advanced. If you think this material is advanced, you have set the bar too low for yourself. If so, you most likely get slaughtered in the markets. We believe this material to be the bare minimum of what investors need in order to create a competitive advantage. And if you do not have a sustainable competitive advantage with regards to other investors, you had better have an endless supply of money or else you should expect to get slaughtered. 

While these programs have been designed specifically for retail investors, even experienced financial professionals have told us that these sessions provided priceless insights they had never come across even after several years in the industry. 

And if you are familiar with Mike's investment forecasting track record, the unique insights he has presented in his books, articles and videos, this should come as no surprise because he is clearly one of the world's leading financial minds today.

The material presented in these programs is 100% original and unique. You aren't going to find this material anywhere else in the world because it has been developed by Mike Stathis based on two decades of professional experience and success working in the capital markets as a financial adviser, merchant banker, analyst, hedge fund adviser and venture capitalist.  

Our Boot Camp Series are Not so-called "investing courses," but rather a series of instructional videos which teach essential knowledge, insights and skills required to raise your investment IQ so that you are able to better understand how the capital markets really work, how to analyze stocks, understand risk, and and manage your investments.
