"There are two sorts of wealth-getting, as I have said; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honorable, while that which consists in exchange is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another. The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural."

- Politics, Aristotle, 350 B.C.

"The Jew alone regards his race as superior to humanity, and looks forward not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them all and to its final ascendancy under the leadership of a tribal Messiah."

- Goldwin Smith, The Jewish Question, October 1881

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

- President Woodrow Wilson 1916

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

- David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, letter to Col. House, November 21, l933

“One of the least understood strategies of the world revolution now moving rapidly toward its goal is the use of mind control as a major means of obtaining the consent of the people who will be subjects of the New World Order.”

"We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build."

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

- David Rockefeller 

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”

- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

How to Think Clearly

"Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." –Mark Twain

If you want to begin to understand and appreciate the work of Mike Stathis, from his market forecasts and securities analysis to his political and economic analysis, you will first need to learn how to think clearly. For many, this will be a cleansing process that could take quite a long time to complete depending on each individual.

The best way to begin to clear your mind is to first move forward with this series of steps:

1. GET RID OF YOUR TV SET (at least cancel your cable)


3. DO NOT USE A "SMART PHONE" (or at least do not use your phone to access the internet)


The cleansing process will take time but you can hasten the process by being proactive in exercising your mind.

You should also be aware of a very common behavior exhibited by humans who have been exposed to the various aspects of modern society. This behavior occurs when an individual overestimates his abilities and knowledge, while underestimating his weaknesses and lack of understanding. This behavior has been coined the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" after to sociologists who described it in a research publication. See here.

Many people today think they are virtual experts on every topic they regard with relevance. The reason for this illusory behavior is because these individuals typically allow themselves to become brainwashed by various media outlets. The more information these individuals obtain on these topics from the media, the more qualified they feel they are in these subjects, without realizing that the media is not a valid source with which to use for understanding something. The media always has bias and can never be relied on to represent the full truth.

A perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen with many individuals who listen to talk radio shows. These shows are politically biased and consist of individuals who resemble used car salesmen more than intellectuals. These talking heads brainwash their audience with cherry-picked facts, misstatements and lies regarding relevant issues such as healthcare, immigration, Social Security, Medicaid, economics, science, and so forth. They also select guests for interview based on the agendas they wish to fulfill with their advertisers.

Once their audience has been indoctrinated by these propagandists, they feel qualified to discuss these topics on the same level as a real authority, without realizing that they obtained their understanding from individuals who are employed as professional liars and manipulators by the media.  Another good example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect can be seen upon examination of political pundits, stock market and economic analysts on TV.  They talk a good game because they are professional speakers. But once you examine their track record, it is clear that these individuals are largely wrong, but they have developed an inflated sense of expertise and knowledge on topics for which they continuously demonstrate their incompetence.

One of the most insightful analogies created to explain how things are often not what you see was Plato's Allegory of the Cave, from Book 7 of the Republic.

We highly recommend that you study this masterpiece in great detail so that you are better able to use logic and reason.Although we recommend you read and study The Allegory of the Cave, you can get a flavor for its meaning by watching the following video. 

If you can learn how to think like a philosopher, specifically one of the great ancient Greek philosophers, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be fooled by con artists like those who make ridiculous and unfounded claims in order to pump gold and silver, the typical get-rich-quick or multi-level marketing (MLM) crowd.

STOP Being Taken

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

King James Bible - Matthew 7:15

"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." –Mark Twain

All Viewpoints Are Not Created Equal Just because something is published in print, online or aired in the broadcast media does not make it accurate.  In fact, more often than not the larger the audience, the more likely the content is either inaccurate or slanted. The next time you read something about economics or investments, you should ask two main questions in order to assess the credibility of the source. Is the source biased in any way?   That is, do they have any agendas which would provide any type of benefit accounting for their views? Most individuals either sell ads on their site or are dealers of precious metals or securities. That means their views are biased and cannot be relied upon.

Is your source is credible?  

Most people associate credibility with name-recognition. But more often than not, name-recognition serves as a predictor of bias if not lack of credibility because the more a name is recognized, the more the individual has been plastered in the media. And every intelligent person knows that individuals who have been provided with media exposure because they are either naive or clueless. The media positions these types of individuals as “credible experts” in order to please its financial sponsors; Wall Street. 

Instead of name-recognition or media celebrity status, you must determine whether your source has relevant experience on Wall Street as opposed to being self-taught. But this is just a basic hurdle that in itself by no means ensures the source is competent or credible. More important, always examine the track record of your source in depth, looking for accuracy and specific forecasts rather than open-ended statements. You must also look for timing since a broken clock is always right once a day.  Finally, make sure they do not cherry-pick their best calls. Always examine their entire track record. 

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

King James Bible - Matthew 7:15

The above questions require only slight modification for use in determining the credibility of sources that discuss other topics, such as politics, healthcare, etc.We have compiled the most extensive publication exposing hundreds of con men pertaining to the financial publishing and securities industry, although we also cover numerous con men in the media and other front groups since they are all associated in some way with each other. There is perhaps no one else in the world capable of shedding the full light on these con men other than Mike Stathis. Mike has been studying the indistry for well over a decade. Alhough he has published numerous articles and videos addressing this dark side of the industry, the entire collection can be found in our ENCYCLOPEDIA of Bozos, Hacks, Snake Oil Salesmen and Faux Heroes
At AVA Investment Analytics, we don't try to pump gold, silver or equities like many others you see because we are not promoters or marketers. And we do not receive any compensation whatsoever (including from ads) from our content. We provide individual investors, financial advisers, analysts and fund managers with world-class research, education and unique insight.

Media Lies

If you listen to the media, most likely it is costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost money at minimum over the course of your lifetime. The deceit, lies and useless guidance from the financial media certainly is a large contributor of these losses to the sheep you pay attention.

But a good deal of lost wealth comes in the form of excessive consumerism which the media seeks to impose on its audience. You aren’t going to know that you’re being brainwashed or that you have lost $1 million or $2 million over your life time due to the media, but I can guarantee you that with rare exception this is the reality for those who are naïve enough to waste time on the media.

It gets worse. By listening to the media, you are likely to also suffer ill health effects through the lack of timely coverage of toxic prescription drugs or through the ridiculous medical shows, all of which are supportive of the medical-industrial complex.

And if you seek out the so-called "alternative media" you might make the mistake of relying on con men like Kevin Trudeau or Alex Jones. This could be a deadly decision. As bad as traditional media is, the so-called "alternative media" is even worse.

Why Does the Media Air Liars and Con Men?

The goal of the media is NOT to serve its audience because the audience does NOT pay the bills.

The goal of the media is to please its sponsors, or the companies that spend huge dollars buying ads, and in order for companies to justify these expenses, they need the media to represent their cause. The media does this by airing idiots and con men who mislead and confuse their audience.

By engaging in "journalistic fraud," the media steers its audience into the arms of its advertisers because the audience is now misled and confused, so in the case of the financial media, it seeks the assistance of Wall Street brokerage firms, mutual funds, insurance companies, precious metals dealers. This is why advertisers pay big money to be promoted in the financial media.

We see the same thing on a more obvious note in the so-called "alternative media," which is really a remanufactured version of the so-called "mainstream media." Do not be fooled. There is no such thing as the "alternative media." 

In order to be considered "media" you must have content that has widespread channels of distribution. Thus, all "media" is widely distributed and the same powers that control the distribution of the so-called "mainstream media" also control the distribution of the so-called "alternative media."

The claim that there is an "alternative media" is merely a sales pitch designed to capture the audience that has since given up on the "mainstream media."  The tactic is a very common one used by con men.

The same tactic is used by Washington to convince naive voters that there are meaningful differences between the nation's two political parties. In reality, both parties are essentially the same when it comes to issues that matter most (trade policy, healthcare and war). Anyone who tells you anything different simply isn't thinking straight.

On this site, we expose the lies and the liars in the media. We discuss and reveal the motives and track record of the media’s hand-selected charlatans with a focus on the financial media.  

Why Stathis Was Banned

No one has generated a more accurate track record in the investment markets over the past several years than Mike Stathis. Yet, the financial media wants nothing to do with Stathis.

You aren't even going to hear him on the radio being interviewed.

You aren't going to see him mentioned on any websites either.

You won't read or hear of his remarkable track record unless you read about it on this website or read his books.

You should be wondering why this might be. Some of you already know the answer.

The media has banned Mike Stathis because the trick is to air clowns so that the audience will be steered into the hands of the media's financial sponsors - Wall Street and gold dealers.

And as for the radio shows and websites that either don't know about Stathis or don't care to hear what he has to say, the fact is that they are so stupid that they assume those who are plastered in the media are credible. And since they haven't seen or heard Stathis in the media, even if they come across him, they automatically assume he's a nobody in the investment world simply because he has no media exposure.

Well, if media exposure was a testament to knowledge, credibility and excellent track records, Peter Schiff's clients would be a lot happier when they looked at their account balance.

Others only care about pitching what’s deemed as the “hot” topic because this sells ads in terms of more site visits or reads. This is why you come across so many websites based on doom and conspiratorial horse shit run by con artists looking to cash in on ads.

We have donated countless hours and huge sums of money towards the pursuit of exposing the con men, lies and fraud. We continue this mission but we cannot continue it forever without your assistance.

We have been banned by virtually every media platform in the U.S and every website (mainly because we expose the truth about gold and silver).

We have been banned from use of email marketing providers.

The fact is that the Jewish Mafia has declared war on us because we have exposed the realities of the U.S. government, Wall Street and corporate America.

Note that we only began discussing the role of Jews in criminality by 2009, three years AFTER we had been black-listed by the media, so no one can say that our criticism of the Jewish Mafia has led to being black-listed, not that it would even be acceptable.

You can talk about the Italian Mafia, and Jewish Hollywood can make 100s of movies about it...


We rely on you to help spread the word about us. Just remember this. We don’t have to do what we are doing.

We could do as everyone else and focus on making money. We are doing sacrificing everything because in this day and age, unfortunately, the truth is revolutionary. It is also critical in order to prevent the complete enslavement of world citizenry.   

Rules to Remember

On Exposure: No one who has significant exposure can be trusted because those who are responsible for permitting such exposure have allowed it for a very good reason, and that reason does not serve your best interests.

On Spotting Frauds: Whenever you wish to know whether someone can be trusted, always remember this golden rule..."a man is judged by the company he keeps."

This is a very important rule to remember because con men almost always belong to the same network.

You will see the same con artists referencing each other, on blog rolls and so forth.

Does AVA Investment Analytics Have Insider Information?

In the November 2010 issue of the Intelligent Investor newsletter, our Chief Investment and Trading Strategist, Mike Stathis added Atheros Communications (ATHR) to his recommended list.

At that time, shares were selling for around $32. In December, Mike reiterated his bullish sentiment for ATHR.

Most investors hadn’t heard much about ATHR. This is a company that managed to keep a relatively low profile over the years, although it had quickly emerged as a leader in Wi-Fi devices.

Mike had been following ATHR for over five years and knew the company well. During that period, he had traded in and out of the stock. In November 2010, Mike made the call to get back in again.

The following month, Qualcomm (QCOM) announced an all-cash buyout, valuing ATHR at just under $45 per share.

As a result, subscribers to the Intelligent Investors were able to snatch a nice 40% in just weeks. 




Mike also discussed several other securities that have soared. The vast majority Mike’s recommendations have significantly out performed their respective indices. And as you know, the market indices have been on fire since hitting multi-year lows in March 2009. 

For instance, in the very first issue of the Intelligent Investor, published on June 2, 2009, Mike discussed 3 securities he liked for long-term growth based on his valuation analysis as well as fundamental assessment. He recently discussed these securities.



The next chart shows how each of these securities has performed since that issue versus the Dow.


(the Dow is in red)


The next chart shows how these stocks performed in 2010 through the first couple of weeks in 2011.



The next chart shows a more recent chart (updated through the first few days of January 2011). Notice how two out of three of these securities have blown past the spectacular performance of the Nasdaq.


(the performance of the Nasdaq is shown by the red line) 


Let’s have a look at the updated performance of these three stocks.


(the Dow and Nasdaq are in green and yellow respectively)


Eventually, our entire track record for each newsletter is likely to be published.  Over the past few months we have presented several reports showing the performance of our recommended securities.

While a good portion of Mike's market forcasting track record can be found in the public domain, much of his record since the Intelligent Investor newsletter was launched remains unpublished. We plan to get this published later in the year so you will see that he has one of the best market forecasting track records in the world.

However, you should expect these reports to be delayed by 1-2 years because we do not want to reveal our securities positions or market forecasts to unpaid readers while they are still relevant. We will NEVER give away this intellectual property for free. We are in the business of selling research and investment analysis. We are not in the marketing business like so many others you hear of.

Many of you already know that Mike was the ONLY person in the world to have warned about a Dow 6000-6400 AND told the WORLD to start buying at the exact bottom (6500).

He even pinpointed the collapse of the market several months in advance.



When you add in all of the other detailed forecasts he made prior to the economic collapse, it should be clear that no one can come remotely close to his track record.

Apparently, everyone who has visited out website agrees.


Despite nearly two years running and thousands of views, we have not received a single submission in response to our $100,000 reward being offered for the first individual who can prove the existence of another expert who can match his track record.


Subscribers to our newsletters continue to reap huge benefits from Mike's brilliant insights, recommendations and forecasts.


We have kept subscribers in the market for about 95% of the time since Mike advised the entire world to start buying the Dow at 6500 in March 2009. 


That means all you would have needed to do is buy a market index ETF like the DIA (Dow), SPX (S&P 500) or QQQQ (Nasdaq) and you would have gained 80% to 120% returns in less than two years.


And if you had followed Mike's securities recommendations, you'd have registered much higher returns.


Finally, of you had followed his trading guidance, your returns would be even higher. 


In contrast, virtually everyone else has been warning of a collapse for over a year now, causing those who listened to them to miss out on the greatest market rally since the Great Depression.



The only guys you’ve heard about who have been talking up the stock market are the same guys who were bullish in 2007 and 2008. That means they have NO credibility and cannot be relied upon for accurate and unbiased guidance.


Either way, if they are in the media, they are extremists or else they are there to influence you for their benefit.

The following links show our track record since the Intelligent Investor has been released. See here, here, here and here for our track record.   

[Note this is not complete, as it takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to document our record because we do not issue simple buy and sell signals like others. Instead, Mike gives his sentiment and expectations, while providing a trading forecast. Thus, several scenarios are possible for each analysis. Finally, because Mike covers market forecasting, commodities and foreign currencies, we would need to hire a full time staff just to publish his full track record in a timely manner. While most of his securities performance has been published, we hope to eventually publish the full securities track record, as well as his market forecasting, foreign currencies, commodities and foreign currencies track record. However, due to the extensive manpower required to accomplish these tasks, we expect this to occur on a delayed basis.]

There is only one stock that is down from dozens we have covered since the launch of the Intelligent Investor, most of the others are up by a huge amount. And the one exception is only down by 5% since we last recommended it. As a matter of fact, this security is testing a critical technical resistance. If it breaks it, shares could soar in coming months.

And once again, we aren’t talking about high-risk stocks here folks. These are solid companies. Mike has established a spectacular track record of knowing when to buy, when to sell and when to stay out of the market altogether.

The facts are clear. Mike has registered a near-perfect track record in every forecasting category he covers, from foreign currencies, precious metals, the U.S. and emerging markets, to real estate.  As well, his securities recommendations and trading guidance have been unbelievably accurate.

Okay, so many of you already know about Mike’s amazing track record.

Well, Mike has done it again.

Recently, another one of Mike’s recent securities recommendations soared after a buyout announcement. 

Just a few days ago, subscribers to our newest newsletter, Dividend Gems were treated to another buyout, enabling them to snag more than 15% in less than two weeks.

So what’s the name of this security?  National Health Properties (NHP).

On February 28th, Ventas, a competitor of NHP, announced a $5.8 billion buyout of NHP. Have a look at the charts.





Folks, we’re not talking here about options trades, or gambles on risky stocks.

Our spectacular gains have come from solid companies.  

This leads me to address the focus of this article.

Based on these and many other remarkable calls, as well as Mike’s spectacular market forecasting track record, many readers have sent us emails asking if we have insider information.

After all, AVA Investment Analytics provides valuation analysis, investment and trading strategies and risk management to institutional funds. As well, Mike is a Wall Street insider, so could he be receiving inside information?  This is the question we have been receiving.

The answer is NO.

Neither Mike nor anyone else affiliated with AVA Investment Analytics has any access to or desire to obtain insider information. In fact, Mike discusses this topic in The Wall Street Investment Bible.

“Real insider information rarely reaches individual investors. More often than not, investors are fooled into thinking they have insider information when in fact they don’t. More often than not, false rumors are disseminated as insider information by hedge funds that take advantage of unsophisticated investors.

CNBC has formed much of its media strategy based on giving viewers the perception that they have some “special” information or insight that’s unavailable elsewhere. This is why so many sheep continue to watch this network. Anyone who thinks they can gain valuable insight from CNBC obviously hasn’t researched the track records of its guests.

Let me be clear. If you watch CNBC, FBN, Bloomberg or any other financial program, you are a sheep. These networks certainly don’t provide valuable insight. In fact, they often manipulate stocks by interviewing fund managers, analysts and pundits who have vested interests in securities they discuss.

Chances are you’ll never have access to real insider information. And if you do I will guarantee you it won’t come from watching television, reading investment blogs or stock chat boards.

But always remember this. If you do happen to come across real insider information and you act on it, you’ll face some harsh consequences. Sophisticated investors would never use insider information since the risk of being caught is not worth the potential gains. Sophisticated investors want to be around a long time so they can take money from the herd. If you feel the need to take advantage of what you think is insider information, you have no business investing. Consider a trip to Las Vegas instead.”

We have something much better than insider information. We have access to the insights of one of the most talented investment and trading strategists in the world.

Why is this better than insider information?  Because Mike’s insights and guidance is as close as one can get to actually receiving insider information without being illegal. Furthermore, you’re much better off if you know how to fish versus being handed the fish. And Mike focuses on teaching readers how to analyze securities, capital markets, currencies and commodities, determine your asset allocation, measure and manage risk, and other tasks critical to the investment management process.

So how does Mike do it?

Mike’s process is simple to explain, but very difficult to execute.

You see, while that vast majority of professional investors and fund managers focus on one or two areas of expertise like fundamental analysis or technical analysis, Mike looks at EVERYTHING. And he is able to know when economics and fundamental analysis is more important than say technical analysis or sentiment, and vice-versa. Thus, we view his most valued skill to be his judgment.

If you want to get a rough idea how he is able to accomplish so many tasks with such a high level of success, a good starting point would be The Wall Street Investment Bible.

We don’t like to focus on our spectacular gains as a selling point because we do NOT want subscribers who seek “easy money” or fast gains. 

First and foremost, we want subscribers who are committed to raising their investment IQ. And our newsletters are specifically written for that purpose.

Ever since the release of America's Financial Apocalypse and Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble more than four years ago, Mike’s forecasts have been virtually spot on. 

Going back to 2006, with the release of America's Financial Apocalypse, when gold bugs were focusing on the real estate bubble, Stathis was warning of a depression and a global collapse of the financial system and capital markets.


He was predicting gold at over $1400, silver at over $30, oil at over $100, real estate prices to collapse by 30-35%, and the Dow to collapse to the 6000 level.











[Mike has been bullish on gold since late 2001, when I began recommending it for clients. He has been bullish on oil since late 2003]



He also recommended shorting Fannie, Freddie, other mortgage stocks (LEND, NFI, FMT) which are now 0, as well as the homebuilders and banks in Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble, released in 2007. 





















[Note that America’s Financial Apocalypse and Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble enabled readers to take advantage of shorting the securities shown in the above charts. However, the notation in each lists reference to Cashing in on the Real Estate Bubble since this book was specifically focused on a shorter-term investment strategy, having been focused more on real estate and related securities, although it discussed several other assets listed in America’s Financial Apocalypse.]



Can you find another book that has ever specifically recommended that readers actually short a stock? Don’t waste your time looking for one because it doesn’t exist.


Mike even gave a tutorial on shorting in the book and provided a brief analysis as to when to short each of these stocks.


As part of his warnings abiut a banking collapse, Mike was the ONLY person to have specifically warned of a collapse in General Electric, General Motors and Countrywide Financial. Some of you may be thinking that his Countrywide call was nothing special. But keep in mind that Countrywide was considered to be one of the safest mortgage companies through much of 2007.










He warned of an inflationary depression that would cause the entitlements program to take center stages as America's long-term challenge. These books are so far ahead of the curve even today, it’s uncanny.


Mike was also the first (and remains as the only) person to have uncovered the details underlying the Washington Mutual heist by JP Morgan and the Fed.


He also exposed the forced buyout (by the Fed and U.S. Treasury) of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America immediately after the deal was announced. Recall that NO ONE else discussed this deal was forced upon Bank of America until AFTER Ken Lewis started leaking the details more than a year later.


Anyone familiar with the stunning accuracy of Mike’s forecasts and the scope of coverage, whether it  is in securities valuation, market forecasting, swing trades, distressed securities analysis or bankruptcy predictions is likely to agree that Mike Stathis is one of the top investment experts in the world.


There are very few who can match either his accuracy or breadth of coverage.


Furthermore, we know of no one in the world who can match him in both realms combined.

Fortunately, retail investors are able to access Mike’s brilliant insights through the site and especially in our research and newsletter publications.

Whether you’re looking to supplement your other investment resources, or you’re looking to become a great investor, we publish three investment newsletters to suit your needs. 


We invite you to join other subscribers who have taken the most important step to becoming a great investor.


At AVA Investment Analytics, we publish 3 investment newsletters and provide customized research to financial institutions, financial advisers and serious retail investors.


(1)  The Intelligent Investor is our flagship publication. It is the most comprehensive investment newsletter we know of in the world. See here for more details. See here, here, here and here for our track record.   


(2)  Many investors want a bottom line analysis of the market without the extensive analysis published in the Intelligent Investor. This is why we launched the Market Forecaster newsletter recently. If you want to know where the market is headed, we can think of no better source than Mike Stathis.


The Market Forecaster provides forecasts for the U.S. and emerging markets (excluding Russia).  See here for more details. See here and here for our track record.


(3)  The Dividend Gems provides my most highly recommended dividend securities with active management strategies, as well as discussions of other dividend securities. See here for more details. 


Our publications provide readers with the guidance and insights needed to navigate the financial landmines that promise to be commonplace for years to come. 


As a subscriber to each of these newsletters, you will receive Mike’s best insights and analysis.

He provides guidance, present opportunities, discuss risk, teaches you how to analyze securities, estimate valuation, determine your asset allocation, and many other useful skills drawing upon his many years as an investment professional managing hundreds of separate accounts on Wall Street, advising pension plans and corporate treasury departments, and conducting his own research and analysis. 


There you have it folks. This is about as hard of a sell as we do. We discuss facts. We discuss track records. We discuss our mission to raise your investment IQ. Note the substance of this piece. There are no bogus claims, there are no seductive offers of secrets. There are no copyrighting tricks. We just post documented facts.

As I stated earlier, we don’t want you as a subscriber if you’re looking for a quick hitter or easy money. The former preys on the gambling mentality that is so prevalent today, while the other simply doesn’t exist.

We only want those individuals who are committed to becoming great investors, because even with all of our help you are going to have to put in a good deal of time and effort. There is absolutely no way around that. And if you think you’ve found an exception, I’ll guarantee you’ll learn the hard way.

We don’t want the largest number of subscribers. We want the select few who will look back at themselves year after year and see how they have progressed as investors. Making money from our newsletters is the bonus. And as you can imagine, it’s been a huge bonus.

If you are tired of marketers who focus on sales, have terrible track record, terrible performance and lure you in to their services using greed, fear and panic, why not make a chance and learn the tricks and insights from one of the leading investment minds in the world today?


Don't you think it's about time you stopped paying attention to the snake oil salesmen on TV, on the Internet and in the print media, and start paying attention to the man who got virtually everything right?  


And how has your financial adviser been doing? 


For a fraction of the cost you pay your advisor through fees, you can have access to world-leading insights and investment strategies.


If you don’t have the time to devote to the investment process, at the very least you had better make sure your financial adviser is patched into our research. If he or she isn’t, you might consider advising him to do so, or else find one who will.


So what are you waiting for?

Do you REALLY think you're going to get valuable insight from the media?

Do you REALLY think Wall Street is ahead of the curve?


If so, you are either brand new to investing or else you have a VERY short memory


Investigate the track record of the so-called experts plastered throughout the media – Peter Schiff, Robert Prechter, Nouriel Roubini, Gary Schilling, Martin Weiss, and the rest of the professional marketers. 

We’re not even sure these guys have the slightest idea how to trade, understand valuation analysis, or much of anything else associated with sufficient competency required to outperform the market.But then again, they don't have to. All they have to do is flood the broadcast, print and internet media with sales and marketing pitches, selling panic and greed, all while hiding their track record.

Regardless, at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is your performance. Based on their performance, it would appear they have very little expertise about anything related to the investment world, other than the marketing side, which is where they spend the majority of their time, effort and money. And the results show.

Marketing, NOT performance, brings in the big money because the market for sheep is huge. They spend most of their time and operating costs on marketing because subscriber turnover is massive. It can be quite expensive finding new sheep to blow up. 

As you probably realize by now, Wall Street analysts aren’t much better.

When you have a miserable track record, you must rely on other ways to generate sales. The best way to achieve this is by sucking up to the media since most people automatically equate media exposure with expertise. As Mike has discussed on many occasions, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Do you really think top fund managers listen to these guys? Don’t kid yourself.


Even Robert Kiyosaki has gotten in on the action, claiming to have predicted the collapse because he realizes that he who has media exposure can sell anything, even if it’s a bold-faced lie.



Even Tony Robbins and Kevin Trudeau have gotten in on the financial guru gravy train. 

And of course, we even have talking (pin) heads like Glen Beck, Mark Levine, Alex Jones, Max Keiser, and hundreds if not thousands of other media goons who have instantly become virtual financial advisers.



Finally, there are thousands of amateurs who publish content online based on what they have read and heard from their leaders…all of the above. These amateurs are all over the internet. Their articles can be found plastered on large websites and small. Once you start spending time researching track records, you’re likely to be embarrassed to have entrusted your money on investments pitched by clowns.   

Now if you think Beck, Jones, Keiser, Levine, Kiyosaki and Trudeau are much different than Schiff, Prechter, Schilling, Roubini and Weiss, you’re not thinking clearly.

In contrast, at AVA Investment Analytics, we cater to financial institutions first and foremost because the top investment minds respect Mike’s insights. It's embarrassing for us to even discuss these individuals because they are in no way our competition. But we want to expose the truth. Unlike virtually everyone else plastered throughout the media, we provide our analysis to several top Wall Street firms, financial advisors and fund managers.
