If you’re new to our little community here, you may not know that it’s the off-the-beaten-path, somewhat esoteric, opportunities that we specialize in.
Back in 2009, when Brad & I started tossing around the idea of teaming up, I was deep in the bowels of the currency markets alongside building out what I like to call my ‘future little Apple’s.’
Meaning, those human-capital empowered companies where the fuel is problem-solving, ambition, and the quest for disruption. The result, over time (more likely than not), being major, major appreciation in their stock price.
I picked up shares of Amazon (AMZN) back then because I saw a company literally re-writing e-commerce. And.. the way we can satisfy our need for instant-gratification.
Do I wish I was old enough back in 1981, where my forward-thinking brain was fully-developed to be able to predict Home Depot’s (HD) major rise to stardom? Where $5000 invested in Home Depot would be worth $30 million today?
Yes, of course.
Not that I would have “seen” it’s future, or even cared at 12 years of age. But, since then, after years of being in the trenches of consumerism, trend-watching and rule-breaking (i.e., changing old habits and ways to garner more leveraged results, regardless of how controversial it is), I can say a few things:
“Investors who avoid high and unnecessary costs and simply sit for an extended period with a collection of large, conservatively-financed American businesses will almost certainly do well.”
That’s been proven time and time again. And, as long as there are forward-thinking, ambitious, possibility-minded people on this planet who are interested in solving problems, this will never change.
Some of these IVs may just be predicated on price movement (i.e., a trading vehicle), with no underriding value or growth based on product sales; other’s will still be capital-driven and focused on industry disruption, but so outside the mainstream, you won’t even know about it unless you’re tied into an ‘alternative investments’ research company like M4.
Either way, I’d say that it makes sense to allocate a small percentage of your discretionary cash availability to put a “flyer” (an educated chance) on such opportunities. After all, if you don’t participate, you’ll never get a potential payoff anyway.
So, this leads me to my ending today:
M4 will continue to strive to stay with our original quest, which is to bring you ‘off wall-street’ opportunities you’ll never necessarily hear about elsewhere.
We’ll go down the deep rabbit holes and stir up the dirt, then sift it through our filters for viability and near-term payoffs.
In short, that’s what continues to drive Brad and I. Helping as many people as we humanly can get rich quicker, with more leverage and time-freedom in their life, than just doing things the conservative or Warren Buffett way 😉
