Many folks hope to make a killing on stocks to fund their retirement. And some succeed.
But the upfront investment needed to return enough to fund even one year of retirement – not to mention the risk of losing it all in a sudden crash like we saw last year – might be too much for you to stomach.
Our Casey Research colleague, John Pangere, has found a safer way to invest… without compromising your upside. He says you can potentially make 49 years of profits in ONE trade.
And the best bit: It’s even cheaper than buying stocks… but with much higher potential gains. And you can use your regular brokerage account to invest using this tool.
Growing up, I remember sitting with my grandfather looking through stock tables in the business section of the local newspaper. He used to call out a name for me to search, and I’d call out the prices.
“U.S. Steel,” my grandfather would say.
“50 and an eighth,” I’d call out.
“102 and three-quarters!”
This was one of my first introductions to the world of investing. I learned a lot from those days.
I learned how saving is the first key to building wealth. Then, investing and compounding will help you grow that wealth.
Armed with this knowledge, I stumbled upon a very lucrative corner of the market… one most investors have never even heard of. But in the last two years alone, you could’ve made gains as big as 614%… 2,805%… and even 4,942% from these investments.
In a moment, I’ll show you exactly what type of investments I’m talking about. But first, some background…
From Nothing to Something
My grandfather was a conservative investor. And, knowing my family’s history, it’s easy to see why.
He was born in Greece at the outset of World War I and grew up in a 10-by-10 house with a dirt floor. There was no electricity. No plumbing. No luxuries of any kind. And that frugality also spilled over to his investing style.
His investing style was a lot like the famed “coffee can” portfolio.
You might have heard about the concept before. Robert Kirby, a former portfolio manager at Capital Group, made it famous. He wrote about it in The Journal of Portfolio Management in 1984.
The idea is simple. According to Kirby, the concept comes from the Old West, when people used to put all their valuables in a coffee can. They hid the coffee can under a mattress… and sometimes forgot about it.
Kirby applied this to portfolio management. Here’s how it works: You put together your favorite stocks… sit on them for 10 years… then dig out the “coffee can” to see your results.
This type of investing can work well over the long term. But the tough part for most investors is waiting. It’s hard to do nothing when you have tons of new information readily available at your fingertips.
That’s where my recent discovery comes in.
You see, while I have a core coffee can portfolio, that will deliver compounded returns over time… I like to set aside a small part of my portfolio to speculate with. This gives me a chance to take my wealth to the next level.
And, out of all my speculations, there’s one corner of the market I’ve found that is proving to be the most lucrative of them all.
The best part is, you don’t have to wait years to see massive returns. In fact, I’ve used this strategy for quadruple-digit gains in a matter of months…
The Most Lucrative Speculation on My Radar
I’m talking about stock warrants. It’s one of my favorite ways to speculate.
A stock warrant is a security that gives the holder the right (but not the obligation) to buy a share of stock at a fixed price.
The advantage to speculating with warrants is the leverage you get to a rising stock price. If a company’s stock is up 100%, it’s likely the warrants could be up 200% or more over the same period.
That’s one reason I love speculating with warrants.
The other is, warrants are not long-term. But just like the coffee can portfolio, you can speculate on a warrant and let it run. You can almost forget about it. In a couple of years, or even a few months, you “open” the can… and you’ve vastly increased your wealth.
The great thing is, you don’t need to bet the house on any one warrant. It only takes a little bit of money to make a big difference. Some of the best warrants trade for just pennies on the dollar.
In just the past year alone, I’ve cashed out with 10x – or more – gains a number of times, all using warrants. And it’s not just my personal portfolio that’s benefiting…
Bringing Warrants to Our Readers
Over two years ago, my colleague Dave Forest and I decided to bring the power of warrants to our readers.
We wanted to break open the secrets we’ve used personally to profit… so our readers would have the chance to do the same.
Since then, we’ve recommended 32 different warrants in our premium service, Strategic Trader. Our subscribers have had the chance to book wins as high as 614%, 2,805%, and even 4,942%.
But we’re just getting started. Right now, we’re sitting on gains like 150%… 171%… even 1,363%.
The best part is, it doesn’t take much to make a small fortune with warrants. If you’d put just $500 into each warrant play we’ve recommended so far, you’d be sitting on over $46,000 today. That’s almost three times your money in two years.
That’s the power of warrants. They’re a great way to complement your personal “coffee can” portfolio… And you can buy and sell them as easily as stocks, with just a couple of clicks, right from your brokerage account.
But we’re just getting started. Earlier this week, Dave Forest held his first ever live event, called the “Zero to Retirement Summit.” At it, he revealed our next target.
It’s a way to potentially make 49 years of profits in ONE trade.
And he explained everything you need to know about what warrants are and how to trade them…
