Micro-Caps: The Perfect Crisis Investment

By Lou Basenese, on Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Have you ever noticed that something strange happens when a crisis strikes?

Investors panic — and then, in a flight to safety, they abandon proven investment strategies.

As Wayne explained last week, this knee-jerk reaction (“go to cash now, ask questions later!”) can be brutally destructive to your portfolio.

As he shared, even if you miss out on just a handful of big days in the market, your returns can get chopped in half. Your long-term returns might even go negative.

But I’m not here to dwell on making bad investment decisions...

Instead, I want to share what happens when you make good investment decisions.

In other words, what happens when you turn a crisis into an opportunity

540% in 120 Days

Yesterday, I sent out a profit alert to readers of my premium research service, Micro-Cap Advantage.

I told them to sell their remaining shares in a Covid-19 vaccine play, and lock in profits of 540%.

We originally entered the position on March 27th, just after the coronavirus crisis really started taking hold. So our total holding period was 120 days.

Over the same period, the Nasdaq index rose 40% — not a bad return from big tech stocks.

But compared to 540% returns, 40% is pretty insignificant.

The thing is, the outperformance of my recommendation didn’t really come as a surprise…

What To Expect with Micro-Caps

You see, the vaccine play that my readers and I took profits on is called Vaxart, Inc. (VXRT)

And when we entered the position, Vaxart’s market cap was a measly $185 million.

By all definitions, this was a tiny “micro-cap” stock that virtually no one on Wall Street knew about.

But by the time we sold it, its market cap was $1.1 billion — squarely in “small-cap” territory, and on every Wall Street investment manager’s radar.

This trade represented a quick way to turn a small sum of capital into a large one…

And as it turns out, that’s exactly what you can expect with micro-caps…

The Power and Potential of Micro-Caps

As one of my readers, Alan H., recently wrote in to say:

“Lou has changed my investing strategies and opened my eyes to the power and potential of micro-caps. His track record since I joined his Micro-Cap Advantage service is simply amazing.”

Alan, as well as countless of my other readers, have been racking up huge gains with my micro-cap recommendations.

For example, a reader named Robin Cohen wrote to me just weeks after receiving my recommendations. Here’s what Robin said:

“At the end of March 2020, I followed Lou’s recommendations for covid investments and my portfolio exploded upward to dizzying heights within weeks. Most of his recommendations have doubled and a handful are headed toward 300 - 400% gains. This has meant that I will now be financially secure the rest of my life.” 

You might think I’m “cherry-picking” to prove that micro-caps are so powerful…

But as you’re about to learn, that’s simply not the case...

Average Gains of 431%

On the same day I recommended Vaxart, I recommended eight other micro-cap stocks, too.

And within just 120 days, every one of them soared:

The average gain is 431%.

Furthermore, the gains from many of these stocks topped 1,000%.

Did you miss out?

If so, to be candid, I don’t feel so badly for you…

Don’t Miss Out Again…

You see, my colleagues and I told you about my research on these opportunities in advance.

On March 25, we even provided you with a special offer to get access to them!

But I’m not writing you today to make you feel bad about missed opportunities…

On the contrary, I want to make sure you don’t miss out again…

Let me explain how…

A Small Start to Something Big

Just hours ago, I published my latest research report…

It’s on five new micro-cap stocks that I’m recommending.

As we start to emerge from the current crisis, I expect these five stocks to soar 1,000% or more.

In a moment, I’ll share a link that leads to all the details on how to access this report right away…

And how to get positioned in these stocks today.

But first, I want to make something crystal clear:

The outperformance of micro-caps — even when compared to the chart-topping Nasdaq — isn’t a fluke.

This outperformance is virtually guaranteed.

Irrefutable Data

You see, the data is irrefutable.

Consider this:

  • If you’d invested $1,000 into large caps in 1926, by 2015, you’d be sitting on $3 million.
  • If you’d put $1,000 into small caps, it would have grown to more than $12 million.
  • But if you’d put $1,000 into micro-caps, you’d be sitting on $20 million.

Keep in mind: this data represents almost one hundred years of historical returns.

So we couldn’t ask for more definitive proof that micro-caps are the source of the biggest gains in the stock market…

And as you’ve seen for yourself today, this outperformance is happening again right now.

The Time To Act Is Now

If you jumped into cash when the market crashed in March, and now you need to play catch-up…

Or if you haven’t been capturing quick 500%+ winners because you don’t own any micro-caps…

You need to invest in the five stocks I’ve uncovered:

  • They’re all targeting fast-growing opportunities worth $1 billion or more.
  • They all offer a patent-protected product or service.
  • They all benefit from virtually no Wall Street analyst coverage. (Remember, by the time Wall Street woke up to Vaxart, its shares had already soared by more than 500%).
  • They’re all dirt cheap.
  • And they all have an imminent catalyst — which means shares could start soaring any day now.

Best of all, with as little as $500, you could get exposure to all of them.

The Perfect Crisis Investment

After 20 years on Wall Street, I’ve seen how trends come and go.

But if you’re aiming to quickly turn a small sum of capital into a fortune — maybe even a million dollars — one strategy has lasted the test of time:

Invest in high-quality micro-cap stocks.

So please — don’t miss out again…

Put the wealth-multiplying power of micro-caps to work for you right away.

It’s as simple as accessing my latest research on the top five micro-caps…
