Equal Opportunity Offender - Since 2003

Background Behind the Top Ranked Investment Newsletter

KipFor over 15 years I was a Financial Advisor and Vice President of Investments for the most respected firms on Wall Street.

While in this position I learned that the quickest and easiest way to lose money for my clients (and myself) was to follow the advice of investment firms and their research departments… to purchase or sell securities based on their recommendations.

Sadly, this is probably not a surprising statement, as over the last several and shocking years, the public has learned about the vast conflicts of interest that continue to be inherent on the “street”. These conflicts make it very difficult for the average person to make money with their financial advisor.

What I discovered, and what I have been publishing, since 2003

This environment forced me to learn how to analyze companies and to do real research… to develop strong relationships, proprietary screens, technical analysis, identify industry momentum, and most importantly, to personally get to know the managements of exciting growth companies.

To be specific, I am speaking primarily about small and mid-cap companies, although a large cap is added if the situation warrants it. However, investing in small to mid-cap stocks is where the real potential lies. It is companies of this size, with market caps of $100 Million to $1 Billion or so, where investors can make real money in the stock market. By real money, I mean annualizing over 50-100% per year. Sound aggressive…sound too good to be true? Well, it is aggressive, but it is also completely possible…that’s why the majority of people invest in the markets… they want the opportunity to increase their net worth dramatically while having a measured degree of risk. It’s all about risk vs. reward. This is exactly what the “Vertical Research Advisory” (VRA) provides.

VRA Trading and Investing System

So, how is this accomplished, and “How do we select our stocks and options”? A significant amount of research has been done over the last 20 years in order to perfect the system of stock selection…and the research is extensive. After a company has been selected as an interesting possibility (we speak with hundreds of company insiders and industry experts each year), we then begin a two-pronged approach. While we are speaking and meeting with the company’s top insiders, we are also researching their competitors, carefully analyzing SEC filings, and using proprietary fundamental and technical screens. This approach allows us to uncover companies that fly under the radar screen of most Wall Street analysts (who operate to a large degree based by what the company will pay in investment banking fees) and mutual fund managers. Ideally, we enter a stock 1-3 months before it is “discovered” by Wall Street and the global markets. Members are updated on a regular basis with news, proprietary analysis, or a rating change on recommended companies.

The VRA Also Focuses on Short Term Trading Opportunities, Using Options and ETF’s

In addition to our focus on growth stocks, increasingly we are finding extraordinary short term trading opportunities with the use of stock/index options and ETF’s. Whether it’s the recommendation of puts/calls on market indexes, or the use of leveraged ETF’s, the VRA Trading and Investing System allows our Subscribers to dramatically increase their returns. While the VRA will never become a day trader, our short-term recommendations allow us to capitalize and profit immensely on the extremes that develop in the market.

What you need to do…

Once we recommend a stock/option, you will want to purchase shares/options in the company or index ASAP. The timing is crucial and it is important that you have established a brokerage account, (ideally an online brokerage account) such as Etrade, Ameritrade, Fidelity, Schwab, etc… an online account that you have control over, and one that features low fees and strong account capabilities.

It is also very important that you have proper account management and diversification. Please remember to take equal positions in each stock, and to never “load the boat” or put all of your eggs into one basket. Smart diversification is likely the most important theme of successful investors, so please keep this in mind.


We invite you to join our exclusive club… one in which the membership will remain small in order for us to spend our time and resources focusing on selecting the best young companies for your investment dollars. The initial fee for the VRA is $3995.00 USD, followed by an annual fee of $795.00 USD.

Importantly, subscribers to the newsletter are not allowed to share the VRA with non-subscribers.
We look forward to working with you and assisting you in making the kinds of annual returns that you’ve always known existed…you’ve just never been in a position to find out about the companies until they have already doubled in price, or more.

With the Vertical Research Advisory, you will be on the inside looking out. It is the only way to consistently make serious money in the markets.
