No. While we are fully capable and licensed portfolio managers, managing money while providing research is filled with conflicts. We want our research to be unbiased.
No. Never. Staff are also not allowed to buy any new Canadian securities. Staff are allowed to trade US securities only.
We don’t print out glossy, 80-page reports. We don’t take company executives out to fancy dinners. We don’t pay lawyers to structure deals. We don’t pay commission to brokers to sell products. We don’t give any investment bankers large bonuses. We don’t cover everything. In addition, our founder has made a lot of money from wise equity investments, and we don’t need to charge a lot to our members in order to survive.
Reports are issued frequently (about two per month). We cover individual companies, new issues, ETFs, and structured products, and individual companies will be covered on an on-going basis. All reports are available to members for download from the members area. We also send out a member update e-mail every 2-4 weeks letting you know what's new.
Because everyone can understand it. An “A” company is better than a “C-“ company. Most stock analysts use inoffensive terms to protect their relationships with companies. Do you know if a “Sector Perform” is better than an “Equal Weight”? Frankly, neither do we. Letter grades are simple, and we don’t care if we offend a company with an “F” grade.
Integrity - we have absolutely no conflicts.
Insight - we have decades of experience.
Independence - we work only for you.
Individual - our research is catered to you, not an institutional investor.
Investment - Invest in education before you lose money elsewhere.
