of Your Stocks
Just How High You Sell is Up to You...
Dear Investment U Reader,
Let me start with a question.
Once you buy a stock, what do you do next?
If you're like 99% of all investors, the answer is... nothing.
You just hope that the stock goes up.
But what else can you do? You can't will the stock to go higher. You're totally at the mercy of the markets.
That is, at least, until recently.
Thanks to a type of investment we call "Active Shares," you can now control the price of certain stocks.
What do I mean, exactly?
I'm talking about a way to take shares of stock worth, say $2 and actively increase their value to $4 or more...
The key is a type of unique shares that can actually force corporations to increase the value of your stock.
I'm not talking about preferred stock, Class A shares, options, dividend re-investment plans, or anything complicated.
It's an entirely different type of investment that allows you to buy stocks worth just a few dollars and in a short time help transform them into $15, $30, $50 stocks or better.
In the short letter below, I'll explain to you the simple steps needed to use "Active Shares."
I'll show you which select companies offer these rare shares...
Including the one I am certain could hand Active shareholders an instant double in the next six months... And maybe 306% to 838% more, if history is any indicator.
So let's get started...
Some investors convince themselves that they're making "informed" decisions when investing. They look at earnings or price-to-book ratios and think they have an idea where a stock is headed.
But the fact is, once most people buy stocks, all they can do is "pray it goes up."
Take Samantha V. for instance.
Early on in her investment career, Samantha had saved $12,000 to put to use in the markets. She decided to go with a popular shoe company.
She says the stock had a "sharp upward trajectory." So she started researching further.
"I ordered shareholder information from the company to study its prospectus," she says. "And I became certain that I could never lose... so I bought close to 400 shares with my $12,000 at $30 a share."
Samantha then waited... hoping the stock would continue heading up.
"Before long it was at $15 a share and I couldn't take it anymore," she says. "So I sold out, took a loss and recovered all of $6,000 of my original investment."
That's too bad for Samantha. Watching your favorite stock steadily decline is never fun.
But with "Active Shares," you don't have to worry about that problem... Because you could actually have a say in where the share price is headed.
Barron's recently profiled a group of people that bought "Active Shares" in Toreador Resources during 2009.
VALUE OF TOREADOR ACTIVE SHARES
As you can see, owning "Active Shares" in Toreador could have handed you over 244% returns in less than a year. You could have turned $21,100 into more than $72,500!
Adam K. from Texas, for example, saw the value of his "Active Shares" go up by more than $231,581. And Peter H. of Missouri banked as much as $347,372 in less than a year!
And the great thing is... the company I'm looking at right now could easily be another Toreador. I see it potentially doubling within the next six months or less. And it could go much higher after that.
But let me be straight with you...
If you have the old-fashioned view that making money in stocks means buying and passively hoping they go up... well, this definitely isn't for you.
On the other hand, if you want control over where your stocks are headed, then "Active Shares" might be just what you've been waiting for.
So how did I find out about all this?
Over the past seven years, I worked as a top researcher for some of the world's largest hedge funds.
During that time, I've witnessed these funds' top expert investors - many of whom I know personally - use "Active Shares" to make vast fortunes in the market.
Let me show you how you can do the same, for the first time ever...
of Company Executives
What I'm talking about is essentially a way to make sure that, as a shareholder, you are king...
You see.... the great majority of company executives are good for one thing and one thing only: increasing their own pay.
Take the former CEO of an Omaha-based database and mailing list vendor.
According to an SEC report, he...
"used investor money to pay $2.8 million in expenses related to his yacht; $1.3 million in personal credit card expenses; and other costs associated with 28 club memberships, 20 automobiles, homes around the country and three personal life insurance policies."What a sham.
This money should have gone to shareholders... or at least toward expanding the business. Not to some lowlife's extravagant lifestyle.
But the problem is... company executives couldn't care less about shareholders.
All they care about is padding their own pockets.
And the worst part is that they usually get away with it. Regular shareholders like you and me rarely have any power to stop them.
It's the reason most shares have gone nowhere over the last 10 years while executive compensation has shot through the roof.
But with "Active Shares," you no longer have to sit back and hope that the people running the companies give you a fair shake.
As the global head of M&A at Jones Day told CNBC, when you own "Active Shares," "the ability [for executives] to do something kind of like 'damn the shareholders'... that's over."
You get to veto the greedy executives of the world and take the pay raise for yourself.
So how do "Active Shares" work exactly?
Here's the basic idea:
Against Greedy Executives
When you buy "Active Shares" you aren't just buying any old shares like the rest of Americans. Instead, you're teaming up with a group of shareholders who are fed up with greedy executives.
By teaming up and voting alongside the other people in this group, you can finally gain actual control in the company's financial direction. And you can have a say in decisions that directly affects the company share-price.
The impact of banding together as a group of shareholders can be dramatic - mostly because of the people that lead them.
Here's what I mean...
The leaders of these shareholder groups are powerful investors called Activists who buy enough company shares to be considered beneficial owners of the company.
These Activists essentially use the clout of ownership to get shareholders paid what they deserve.
And if you buy shares when they do - during a brief period in which shares are "Active" - you are poised to make a ton of money.
These Activists might, for instance, demand a special dividend, or get the company to buy their shares back at much higher prices, or even force the company to sell itself for a huge payday to shareholders.
And if the company says no, Activist investors are often powerful enough to get the CEO or Board members fired and bring in somebody who will actually give shareholders the returns they deserve.
The success rate of Activists is off the charts.
For instance, a study published in February 2009 by The Journal of Finance confirms that Activist investors have outperformed the markets by 21.6% after they target a company.
And that's just the average.
Some of the best Activists, who I'll introduce you to in a moment, have been known to regularly "hand" their fellow shareholders as much as 137%... 306%... or even 838%!
Active shareholder Richard C., for example, ended up selling his shares of ImClone for a massive $821,685 after Icahn "arranged" the sale.
It's these types of returns that are making Active Shares some of the most sought-after investments right now.
I'll show you exactly when you can buy Active Shares and which companies are offering them shortly...
But first let me tell you more about some of the first guys to start doing this... and how they've used Active Shares to make 838% or more for their fellow shareholders.
$8 Shares into $75 Shares...
One of the most successful Activist leaders is a man named Dan Loeb from Santa Monica, CA. He's an avid surfer and art collector, but more importantly, he's one of the world's most brilliant investors.
After graduating from Columbia University and working as a high-level executive at Citigroup, Loeb had witnessed firsthand how company executives were screwing over their shareholders.
So Loeb started his own investment firm - now worth $3 billion - with the goal of giving shareholders control over the stocks they own.
One of the first companies in which he used Active Shares was Penn Virginia Corp.
At the time, Penn Virginia was a struggling company. The executives were milking the company for every penny they could get, earnings were flat, and the share price was going nowhere.
Indeed, in 12 years, the stock barely rose from $6 to just $8.
But that's when Dan Loeb stepped in.
Loeb recognized Penn Virginia's possibilities for growth.
So he became the one of the largest shareholders in Penn Virginia and then immediately went on the offensive for his fellow Active shareholders.
He publicly attacked the company executives for their "mass destruction of [shareholder] value." And exposed their "overly generous options packages" and "egregious golden parachute agreements."
He then demanded that the company executives "immediately begin a program of repurchasing its shares" at increased prices... And "explore options to maximize shareholder value, including the possible sale of the company."
Here's what happened next...
VALUE OF PENN VIRGINIA ACTIVE SHARES
After Loeb took control, Penn Virginia's executives sat up and took notice.
They knew their jobs were at stake and they immediately took steps to increase shareholder value. The results speak for themselves:
From the moment Loeb got involved, Penn Virginia Active Shares charged forward like a raging bull from $8 all the way to a peak of $75. That's a massive 838% gain!
If you had been part of Loeb's group of Active Shareholders, you could have turned $20,000 into $187,500!
In my opinion, buying Active Shares is the only way to ensure huge triple-digit returns like these in the current markets.
And in the next few minutes I'll tell you all about the company I believe is the next to experience hyper-growth like Penn Virginia.
But first, let me give you one more example of how this works...
178% in 13 Months
Consider this... Chapman "made" shareholders 598% on the first stock he ever targeted. And then continued turning a profit on every single one of his next 17 stocks.
One of his great successes came in 2009, when he targeted a small-cap stock called Facet Biotech.
It was trading at the time for about $9.72.
However, Chapman realized that the company's hundreds of millions in cash and asset-rich balance sheet could be used to increase Active shareholder value.
So Chapman used his position as a primary shareholder to get a place on the company slate of Directors.
And then immediately called for the company to look for buyers and use its cash to increase the value of Active Shares by $15 (Keep in mind, this was a company trading for just $9.72)
So what happened next?
In just over a year, Chapman helped find a buyer in Abbott Laboratories that paid $27 per share to shareholders.
Indeed, Chapman had successfully increased the value of shares in Facet by $17.28, even topping his aggressive $15 goal.
If you had bought 10,000 Active Shares of Facet when Chapman got involved, you would have received $270,000 when the company sold to Abbot.
That's a 178% return in about a year.
But what I'm about to tell you about could be even better...
I'm going to reveal an opportunity involving a guy who, in my opinion, is one of the very best Activist investors on the planet.
I believe his next target will double in less than six months and could continue moving up by 306% to 838%.
Let me share with you exactly when you should buy Active Shares in this company.
I'll start by introducing myself...
I'm a Senior Analyst and Biotech Specialist for The Oxford Club.
I've had a good amount of success since joining The Oxford Club.
My Biotech research service, for example, has handed readers gains of 163% in MDVN in less than a year... 103% in NKTR in seven months... and 213% in MELA in about six months.
Its no wonder Marketocracy ranks my Biotech portfolio No.# 48 for three-year performance out of the over 100,000 funds it tracks.
I've also been written up in many publications including The Wall Street Journal and The Street.com where I was a Senior Columnist.
But it's my work in Active Shares that has gained me the most acclaim in the investing world.
The major investment firms and professionals that rely on my Activist research include:
I love hearing from my subscribers after a big win:
Like Kevin R., who writes "I'm now up $7,700. Before joining you I was a pure gambler. You changed my mentality and made me a wiser investor."
"Your recommendation on Delcath made me approximately $20,000," says Jack C. of Florida.
And then there was Paula D. from Virginia who wrote: "I am glad I made the right move and cashed out my entire position making a 159% profit. Thanks!"
I never hear that kind of feedback from a hedge fund. They're too busy counting the money I helped them make to say thank you.
Which is why I've decided to share my very best research with everyday folks in a brand new research service, The Activist Trader.
This is the first time a "Hedge-fund guy" has broken ranks to reveal these secrets to average individuals. As far as I can tell, no one has ever created a service like this before.
And to be honest, I'm pretty excited about that.
In The Activist Trader, I will reveal in real-time alerts which companies are being targeted by groups of Activist investors right now.
Each week, my subscribers will receive all the same information I've given to the top hedge fund managers including:
Activists usually target stocks that are cheap. Not just in price, but in valuation. This means that stocks we go after are very low risk while the potential upside is sky high.
By buying alongside Activists, the moment shares go "Active," we have the best chance to quickly book 137%... 306%... or even 838% in today's markets.
Why am I so confident?
Because Activists are extremely smart and successful investors. They pour millions of dollars into research on their target companies before taking such large positions.
Activists like Carl Icahn are not going to sink millions of dollars into a stock unless they know it's going up.
And when you've seen firsthand the track records of these guys, as I have, you'll understand why it's a no-brainer to jump on board when they make their moves.
In fact, there's one Activist I'd like to tell you about who just never seems to lose.
And as I'll reveal to you now, his next target has the potential to at least double in less than six months...
The situation I'm talking about involves a gentleman who I consider to be one of the very best Activist investors alive.
His success rates are other worldly.
For example, according to a recent Barron's profile, and confirmed by my research, he's only closed out one loss in his last 22 target stocks.
And out of those 22 stocks, this brilliant investor has averaged a 41% gain on each.
In total, that's a cumulative gain of 902%!
As Barron's notes, the S&P has risen a measly 1.4% over the same period.
Needless to say, when you have a chance to buy Active Shares alongside this guy, you better jump on the opportunity.
And in this case, he's targeting a small financial stock trading for around $10. Its market cap is just $210 million.
But what makes this financial stock exciting?
In short, it's a prime takeover target.
Over the last two years, while most financial companies were scrambling for federal bailouts, this company didn't take one penny in government money.
Instead, they were busy eliminating almost all their debt - nearly $1 billion worth.
With their debt level now at practically zero, this company is poised to see profits rocket out of the gates in the fourth quarter of 2010 - increasing its value on the open market significantly...
And the Activist investor involved clearly sees this as an opportunity to pounce.
He's quickly become the largest shareholder in the company and now plans to "maximize shareholder value" by exploring a sale of the company on the open market.
And if word that any sale is in the making gets out - which I suspect could happen very soon - shares of this small company could rise very quickly...
In fact, the last time this Activist was involved in a similar financial stock, (same industry, same size, comparable balance sheet) it ended up going from $18 straight to $35 after the sale.
It was a quick double for all Active shareholders involved.
But this time, I believe the profits will be even bigger.
If you buy when shares go "Active" in the next few days, I'm certain you could have the opportunity to double your money in less than six months.
And after that the profits might go much higher. I foresee potential profits of 306% to 838% over the long haul.
So how do you find out exactly when to get in?
All you need to do to find out everything about this company is receive my initial alert in The Activist Trader.
In it, I'll tell you the whole story behind the company... why I believe it could double your money in less than six months... and exactly when to get in.
But I need to be clear - every moment you delay could end up costing you a lot of money.
Shares will only be "Active" for a very short time.
And because investors now know how quickly Activist stocks climb up the charts, there will only be a small window before the share price starts soaring.
It's very important that you realize how time sensitive this information is. We're looking for wealth builders who are ready to use this situation to make a lot of money very quickly. But we can't wait for the stragglers.
for the Next Few Days
Because of the nature of Activist investing, and the short window we have to take advantage of these opportunities, it's imperative that all of our subscribers start on the same page.
You see... we generally target small-cap stocks with The Activist Trader.
Small-cap stocks give us the best chance to turn small sums of money into big paydays. And they are the easiest for Activist groups to target.
After all, a $2 stock can quickly jump to $4, but a $200 stock might take 20 years to get to $400 - if it ever gets there!
But because we are targeting these fast-paced growth stocks, there's only a small window for us to get in when the time is right. If we dilly-dally, we could easily miss out on the triple- and even quadruple-digit gains.
That's why I'm only allowing initial enrollment into The Activist Trader for a short few days. After that we are going to make it very difficult to obtain a subscription.
I want all my subscribers on board right from the get-go so no one is trying to play catch up after the gains have already begun.
If you can't handle that, then I think you should just click out of this presentation now and see what regular blue chip stocks The Wall Street Journal is recommending.
Because with The Activist Trader I won't be showing you the same old boring strategies you've heard a million times over.
If all you ever want to do is buy regular Fortune 500 stocks... then my service definitely isn't for you.
In short, if you want to feel more in control over your investments... and you're willing to try something different... I think you're going to love this.
Subscribers that have used my research in the past certainly do...
One of my subscribers John H. in Birmingham, tells me he sold half of one of my recommendations for a $75,000 profit. "[I] still hold my other half," he says. "I bought thousands of shares under $2 so I still have a nice profit."
But I should warn you...
Unfortunately, there are a lot of beginners who just won't get it.
Most folks are satisfied just guessing which stocks will go up next. They think of the markets as a giant gambling hall where you win some and you lose some.
We want only those individuals smart enough to realize that investing alongside Activists is the only way to actually control the price of your stocks.
For that reason, we're doing two things to limit access.
1. Initial enrollment will only be open for a very short time.
I want everyone to be in, settled, and ready to go when I recommend the very first play. I don't want anyone to come in late and try to figure things out on the fly.
And because this is my newest research service - using unorthodox techniques of making money in the market - I'm not sure yet how many subscribers I can handle and still maintain the highest quality service.
If I feel that the service is getting too big, I may shut down enrollment at any moment.
Likewise, there's a second factor we're using to limit enrollment:
2. After this initial enrollment period is over, we're listing it at a higher-than-usual price.
Again, this is not a typical research service. As far as I can tell, no other investment analyst has ever created a service where we follow Activists to help readers actually increase the value of their stocks.
That's why, once the initial enrollment period ends, the listed price for a full year will be $2,500.
And the fact is - considering how much my previous subscribers have had the chance to make - you could easily end up making four times that amount with my very first recommendation alone.
For example, Jim H. in Wisconsin tells me:Another one of my subscribers, Kevin R. wrote:
"I bought 2000 shares of Mela at $6 and my profit as I'm writing this email is $4000 in about a month or less."On Wall Street, getting real opportunities to make this much in such a short period could cost you $12,000.
And quite frankly, I don't think you'll find a better deal than what I'm offering.
Because we're launching The Activist Trader for the first time, and because I want you to see how Active Shares work firsthand...
As I said, the general public will have to pay $2,500 to get all of my weekly alerts detailing when and where you can buy Active Shares.
However, I've spoken with my publisher, and we've agreed: Our loyal members should get a special deal for being the first on board.
That's why... if you become a member of my Activist Trader before the initial enrollment period ends, you'll do so for just $995 - over 60% off the listed price.
And consider this: One of my subscribers, Kevin R., recently told me on May 5, "I made a bit over $10,000 in a single investment."
That's what makes this offer so valuable. Your first play alone could easily pay for your entire subscription many times over!
In other words... this will, in all honesty, probably be the best offer you ever see for The Activist Trader.
And remember - you have only a short time left to join at the early enrollment price before we close this offer.
After that, you'll be too late.
But there's one last thing you should know about...
Once you join The Activist Trader, you'll be ready to receive my first recommendation set to go out in just a few days.
In it, I'll detail everything you need to know about the company being targeted by the man I consider to be one of the best Activist investors on the planet.
Again, out of the last 22 stocks this guy has targeted, he's closed just one solitary investment for a loss.
And I believe my first alert will give you the opportunity to double your money in six months or less.
It's happened for my other subscribers...
Over the long haul, I see the potential for gains upwards of 306% to 838% gains.
I want to make sure that you are on board for the entire ride to the top...
Which is why I've convinced my publisher to give subscribers who sign up in the next 24 hours an additional year of my service - completely free.
That's a total of two years - with weekly alerts with updates on all our Active Shares, new recommendations, signals to book gains, and all my detailed analysis - for the single one year price of just $995.
I don't think I can make this offer any better.
As long as you are on board and ready to profit right away, I have a feeling you're going to be very happy with the results.
And don't worry.
I'll be there with you all along the way giving you updates on all our recommended positions. If any big news is coming, you'll know before the mainstream-investing crowd.
Plus, you'll know what to do for maximum potential profits.
So, if you're ready to go, I suggest you get on board right now. But if you do have any final concerns, let me alleviate them...
The Oxford Club Money-Back Guarantee: Take the next 60 days to try out The Activist Trader. If you're not 100% satisfied, just let us know and you'll receive a prompt refund, minus only our customary 10% processing fee.
We charge this processing fee to cover our costs and because, believe it or not, there are people out there who try to sign up each month, cancel for a refund, and then do it all over again the very next month.
This is not meant for those people trying to scam the system, but for serious wealth builders.
And as a final reminder, the initial enrollment fee is only available for a limited time. My publishers have informed me that as soon as the early entry period is over, the general public will have to pay the full listed price of $2,500. So if you're interested, I urge you to get in now and save yourself over $1,500.
I hope to hear from you right away.
