In this column last Wednesday, I introduced you to the “perfect” investment: startups.
The following day, however, Wayne revealed some of the pitfalls of these deals.
So today, I’m going to up the ante:
I’ll show you how you could earn the 1,000%+ returns that startups offer — with none of the downsides of investing in privately-held companies!
So, let’s get to it…
The Pros and Cons of Startup Investing
To set the stage here, let me briefly recap the pros and cons of startup investing.
On the “pro” side, it’s hard to beat the returns offered by startups.
After all, our minimum profit target is 1,000% (that’s 10x your money), and we often shoot much higher than that. Furthermore, you can get started with just $100 or so.
But on the “con” side: profits can take years to arrive; you can’t turn your shares into cash if you need money to pay the bills; and to manage risk, you need to build a portfolio of these deals.
But what if you could earn startup-like returns… more quickly, and with less risk?
You can. Here’s how.
It’s Time for You to Go Public…
Simply put, what you need to do is allocate a small portion of your capital into a special type of public stock…
Specifically, small-cap stocks.
Small-Cap Pro #1: Small-Caps Can Be Just as Profitable as Startups
With small-cap stocks, you’re getting into cutting-edge companies focused on big, emerging trends, and you’re getting in while they’re still at their earliest stages.
Basically, these are startups, but they’re publicly traded.
And the right ones can offer enormous upside potential. In fact, here are a few examples of small-cap profits captured by our team:
- 749% from Energous Corp. (WATT).
- 972% from Tesla (TSLA) — from back when it was tiny.
- And 1,223% from optionsXpress Holdings (OXPS).
Small-Cap Pro #2: Profits Can Come Quickly
Furthermore, as long as you know how to identify the key catalysts than can cause a stock to soar, you can earn your profits fast.
In fact, just this year, small-caps helped many of our readers earn big, fast gains. For example:
- Investors in Vaxart (VXRT) earned gains of 243% in just 60 days.
- Investors in Altimmune (ALT) pocketed profits of 640% within 120 days.
- And investors in Novovax (NVAX) took home profits of 949% in just 136 days. That’s a 10-bagger in a few months.
Small-Cap Pro #3: Small-Caps Offer Liquidity
Plus, small-caps trade on a stock exchange…
So if you need to free up some money to pay the bills, you can instantly sell your shares for cash.
So, What’s the Downside?
The thing is, investing in such companies isn’t easy.
To succeed, not only do you need to identify the right small-cap companies to invest in…
But you also need to understand the key catalysts than can quickly cause a stock to soar.
If you don’t know what you’re doing in this market, instead of earning triple- or quadruple-digit profits, you could suffer significant losses.
So tomorrow, Wayne will explain more about these risks…
And then he’ll show you how to cut these risks to the bone!
So stay tuned…
