A year ago we wanted to add a technology editor to the staff. Resume crossed my publisher’s desk …
Worked on Wall Street? Check.
Managed a successful hedge fund? Check.
The publisher asked my opinion. “Well, it’s one thing to make money on a bullish technical stock market,” I said. “But a good stock collector can find opportunities in even the most hated market sectors.”
But Paul Mampili, our “new guy,” accepted the challenge with the following thought, “Stop panicking when selling gold stocks.”
And the rest is history …
In February last year, Paul made a bold appeal: “This is only the first half of a monster bull market for gold mining,” he wrote. “You can earn 100% to 200% over the next 12 months.”
But Paul was wrong.
Investors who have bought something like VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (Nasdaq: GDXJ) the next day they doubled the money in less than six months.
Maybe he was just lucky.
I mean, Paul himself will tell you that gold reserves aren’t really his thing. He likes to spend his time looking for mega-investment trends rather than the geological versions (e.g., Nevada’s Carlin Trend) that mining companies are digging out of the ground.
But attentive readers note other specific appeals that Paul made, and which worked quite well.
Hunting for mega trends in stock
A few months passed, and Paul wanted to focus on finding “mega-trend” opportunities among some of the most common technology stocks on Wall Street.
Again, one could doubt it. I mean, could he see what 99% of Wall Street strategists and analysts couldn’t?
A lot, it turns out.
He recommended 11 stocks; they are all still in the portfolio. His best recommendation is almost 45% (in three months). Its the worst? Down 3%.
That’s when we truly recognized Paul’s strong power …
Paul possesses this rare (and very valuable) identification skill extremes.
It gave us an idea …
Why not unleash Paul and allow him to make the most of his skills?
Paul’s goal is simple:
Direct and seize shares of small companies that can generate multiple 1000 profits. This means that there is no penny, no option, no extreme form of leverage.
Paul will continue to do what he has always done: read lots and lots of books, select them for the most lucrative “big ideas,” and then study volumes of corporate documents and market data in real time to find the best investment candidates .
After that, as another filter, it incorporates its many years of experience as an analyst and hedge fund manager. Only then does it discover true “rough diamonds” among hundreds of small companies trading on major exchanges. (The vast majority of them are inaccessible and neglected on Wall Street.)
Paul has proven the value of his stock selection skills for investors in his $ 7 billion hedge fund …
Over the past year, he has demonstrated these abilities to readers …
