The Investment U Conference: Take Your "Virtual" Seat On the Plane to San Diego
by Martin Denholm, Senior Editor
Tuesday, March 16, 2010
As I write, my Investment U colleagues are heading west.
Their destination: San Diego, California, for the annual Investment U Conference.
I must confess, I'm a little envious - although I'm not sure the Californians would allow pasty Brits like me to go anywhere near the beach anyway.
This year marks the twelfth Investment U Conference. And the theme couldn't be more crucial or timely: The Best Contrarian Investments for 2010...
With a mass of investing information available, knowing where to turn for the most profitable investment advice isn't easy. Many investors choose to follow the Wall Street crowd, or the mainstream media's bland, "one-size-fits-all" investment approach.
It's often a great way to lose money, not make it.
We talk about the contrarian investing concept a lot in Investment U. The reason is simple: It's one of the most powerful strategies you can use - as Chief Investment Strategist Alexander Green stated in the first column of 2010. Having gone against "conventional wisdom" and made a bullish call on the U.S. dollar, the strategy is playing out perfectly, as the greenback has surged recently.
Yes, going against the crowd takes guts. It takes discipline. It takes strong willpower and fortitude. But as our small-cap expert Louis Basenese warns, "Being contrarian isn't simply a case of seeing what everyone else is doing and then doing the opposite. It requires verifying that the fundamentals actually support betting against the crowd."
The theme of the Investment U Conference this week is to show exactly how to harness this concept and incorporate it into your investing.
And this year's attendees will get that from our heavyweight team of experts - Alexander Green, Louis Basenese, Karim Rahemtulla, Marc Lichtenfeld, Dave Fessler, and many more. They're ready to reveal their latest economic insights... analysis of the most lucrative sectors, industries and companies... market-beating investment strategies... and, of course, the stocks poised to profit.
But what if you're like me and can't make it to San Diego?
No problem... we've got you covered. Just because you're not at the conference doesn't mean you'll miss out on the action.
Of course, there's no substitute for actually being there. But here's the next best thing: Over the next few days, we're going to take a "virtual" trip to the Grand Del Mar Resort, as we bring you daily reports, direct from the conference.
I'll be running the Investment U operation from Baltimore and working with Investment U's Education Director, Dr. Scott Brown, in San Diego. Scott will serve as our "conference insider," giving you the highlights from the event.
Not only that, we're going to record the whole darn thing. The presentations. The ideas. The strategies. And stock picks, too. And we want to send the recordings to you, so you can be in San Diego... even without being there.
Before the event even begins tomorrow, you can reserve a copy, so you can enjoy it from your home or office. We'll have two convenient formats available:
- MP3: If you want to view and listen to the presentations on your computer, you're covered. It costs just $99. You can reserve the Deluxe 2010 Investment U Conference Audio/Video Library for just $99 by clicking here now.
- CD: If you'd prefer to have the audio recordings, you can get the CD set for $149. You'll also get the MP3 audios and videos included with this deal. You can reserve the Premier 2010 Investment U Conference Audio/Video Library for only $149 by clicking here now.
Once they're ready, we'll send the recordings directly to you.
So why should you jump on this offer before the conference even starts? Simple: If you get in early, you'll grab the best possible deal.
You see, this is a limited-time offer, which will expire at midnight (Eastern Time) on Tuesday, March 23. Buy now and you'll save money. After March 23, it will cost you more.
We'll e-mail you a bonus report - "Five Biotech Stocks That Have Potential to be 10-Baggers" - on Wednesday, March 24, so you can act quickly to lock in the highest potential gains.
But the report is only available when you order the recordings during this special-offer period, which expires after the conference.
No matter whether you're building wealth for retirement, travel, or just more financial independence and security, these presentations can help you achieve those goals.
And of course, we offer a full, 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee when you buy.
So while we can't give you San Diego sunshine, you can soak up plenty of wealth-building advice instead. Stay tuned for Scott Brown's first report when the conference gets underway tomorrow.
