Opening Disclosure — Long-time readers should note some significant changes in how I communicate in the public domain. The primary purpose of this forum is now to attract new contacts with professional industry expertise to share research and receive feedback (confirmation / refutation) regarding my investment theses.
Accordingly, this document should not be construed as an endorsement or recommendation of the companies or securities discussed herein. I am not an investment advisor and this is not an investment thesis. It is merely one part of the story, which I present for debate in hopes of determining all risks and upside potential. The disclosure at the end of this piece is critical to understanding the content and context of this document. Further, I frequently trade my positions and may buy, sell, or short the securities mentioned herein at any time, regardless of the facts or perceived implications of this article.
Hello from LA!
Welcome to my latest “Major Update”. I think you’re really going to enjoy this one. Not only will I dive deeply into a stock that remains under investors’ radar screens, I’m also going to start talking about some new names (which has been rare of late).
Frankly, we haven’t needed more picks. Our stocks have been on an absolute tear this year. My 1% Portfolio is up 16.3% year-to-date… but over the past 7 months, my new “companies of interest” have risen by an average of 50.1%.
That’s 189% annualized!
The secret? It’s simple…
Taking on partners in 2014 proved to be one of the biggest mistakes of my life (if not the biggest). It killed my focus and killed the process that enabled me to pick 20+ triples between 2009 and 2013.
Well, those guys are long-since out of my lives, along with my dealings with the SEC that stemmed from that partnership (which I’ve discussed many time, most notably here).
With all that behind me, I was able to get back to using my magic formula…
DEEP FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH.
Using focus and deep research is what made Warren Buffet the richest man alive. In this age of charts and day trading, it’s easier than ever to beat the crowd. You just have to do the opposite of everyone else!
And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.
And that’s why I’m in LA this week. I traveled out here to attend the LD Micro Conference. For those who don’t know, this is (in my opinion) the best microcap conference there is… and therefore the best stock conference, period.
I met with dozens of CEOs and will be sharing what I found over the next several days/weeks via my website at https://markgomesstocks.wordpress.com.
It all starts momentarily.
First, I want to invite you all to participate in contributing to my next Special Report. For the last Special Report, over 150 of you participated in my “SMSI Census”. The data which came from that report helped the participants make 25% in just a few weeks!
The next report is going to involve information from local Sprint stores around the country. I’ve already been collecting data from various sources and it appears very bullish for Smith Micro (SMSI). If you participate, you’ll get an early look (at least one week) at the Special Report I will write, which will analyze the data!
Here’s all you need to do:
* Call 3 Sprint Stores in your area and write down their phone numbers.
* Ask them 1) if they have Safe & Found posters in the store, 2) are they selling Safe & Found, and 3) how’s it going? If possible, see if they’ll tell you what % of customers are signing up.
* CLICK HERE and send me your results.
FYI, don’t be surprised if none of your stores have it. Also don’t be surprised if the feedback is negative. Inevitably, there will be some of that. However, from ALL of the data I’ve collected so far…
1) A small-but-rapidly-growing percent of stores have the posters,
2) Over 80% of the stores with posters are actively selling Safe & Found,
3) It’s being received very well, especially by moms. Some stores are signing upwards of 4 customers per day!
To understand what that ALL means (the good and the bad), you have to analyze the data… and that’s where I come in.
I’ve provided insight into that question in my latest videocast below. This is the first in a series of LD Micro Conference update videocasts (and articles), which I hope will continue our string of wins in 2018.
