We often read about people like Warren Buffet and others who have become billionaires by investing in the stock market. Almost every day we hear about someone who built a fortune from virtually nothing, and we always wonder “How do they do it?” What is it that makes them different to you and me? Is there some magic or do they just know things we don’t? No, there is no magic to it. It is however, knowledge. Knowledge you and I don’t have. Well, that is not exactly right. We do have the information if we want it. It is just difficult to find and it is not always in a form that is useful to us. OK, let me explain a little something. Here is the problem: Every day we are told to invest in solid, well managed companies. We are shown example after example of well managed companies that grew from nothing to international fame. Investors got rich, owners got rich; everyone got rich except you and me. We didn’t get rich. We missed the boat. Why?

A Headline Goes Here



A few years ago, I was reading yet another article on the internet about some hot new company. I don’t remember which company and it is not really important. The reporter was telling how great the company was and why it was such a great investment. What struck me was that the news media, analysts, gurus and everyone else always tells us about these things after it has become obvious. Every investment book I have ever read points out beautiful examples of perfect investments – after they have become perfect investments.

But the big question is: where did these great companies come from? What made them great investments? And the most important question of all: How do I find them before they become known as great investments? That’s how all the big money is made, not later when the company is already at the top. Questions like these have plagued me for years.

I am Will, AKA Will the Geek. I love investing and I'm always learning more about the stock market. On occasion, I have done well. But over the years, the times when I have done well were most often followed by periods when I gave back all my profits - and then some. It was very frustrating, not to mention gut-wrenching as I watched my money disappear.

First, understand that I am not an accountant or professional investor. I am certainly not a guru. I am a computer programmer – a geek. But the stock market is my passion. I was determined to beat the market and do it on a consistent basis. So I did some extensive research, built on my market knowledge and eventually came up with a profile for identifying those companies with the most potential for explosive growth. It had nothing to do with their size or the price of a share (I will get to those shortly).

It all came down to identifying companies by their management performance over time. The idea is that if a company can turn out consistent profits and increase sales quarter after quarter, year after year, they were prime candidates for explosive growth, especially if they were producing goods and services that are or will soon be in high demand.

I knew what I had to do was to successfully find these perfect companies. I would write a program to scan through the financial statements and identify the patterns I had found that fit great companies and had proven successful over time.

But then I ran into the one big problem that almost sank me:

The data was not available! There was no data that I could locate on the internet or anywhere else that showed financial information over time. Sure, I could find all the individual financial statements I wanted. But those are like a snapshot. They don't contain the critical time element. Well, actually that is not entirely true. The SEC has the data and it is available to use, but it is not in a form that I could easily analyze or load into my database. There were also companies out there that would lease me that information for around $15,000 per year! There was no way I could afford that. I was crushed and came close to giving up on the idea.

But then I can be rather determined. My wife often calls me ‘Donkey’. I don’t know why. Anyway, I spent the next five years or so writing programs and extracting this fundamental information from the SEC forms and building a database.

I also wrote selection programs to find the exact companies that met my requirements. And I made some startling discoveries in the process.

The first was that most of the companies my programs found were in the most profitable growth investment zone! The exact place where we are most likely to see those 100% to 1,000% (or more) price jumps. To clarify that, I will have to digress a bit.

Back in 1996, James O’Shaughnessy wrote a book called “What Works on Wall Street”, in which he analyzed stock market data all the way back to the Depression. He found many factors that determined winners and losers in the market and strategies that worked best. One of the areas he commented on was the micro-cap and small-cap stocks. He pointed out that they returned huge profits compared to the rest of the market. I don’t recall his exact words, but the down side was that it was not possible tap this huge resource because any investment would swamp these markets. Also, back then we didn’t have the computer power to be able to even find them.

In his latest edition, he amends this and points out that we can indeed invest in these areas if we are careful to choose those companies that are not too thinly traded. In other words, there must be sufficient volume to enable us to get in and out when we want. We must also not buy in such large volume as to make the price skyrocket out of control!

So, back to my point. Not only can we definitely invest in these smaller companies, but using the analysis tools I have developed, we can now identify those stocks with the highest potential for success and the least risk regardless of size or price.

Here's another problem: The exchanges don't list any stock selling under $5.00. Penny stocks list those selling under $1.00. So there is a big gap in stocks between one dollar and five dollars. And this is the exact place that most profits are made.

This is a perfect price point for individual investors like you and me. Here’s why: When a company is listed on the big boards, NYSE, NASDAQ and so on, there are certain requirements that need to be met. This is supposed to guarantee that the company is solid and worth your investment. Each exchange differs, but if a company’s stock price falls below a minimum $5, the stock is de-listed and goes onto the Over-The-Counter (OTC) bulletin board.

Now it no longer appears on the boards and none of the big investment houses will invest in it. These companies are flying under the radar so to speak. These are the companies whose stock price has been beaten down and are trying to rebuild. When these companies have established, or re-established a new track record of performance, they are ready for a new life. These are companies on the mend, and because they have name recognition, they offer huge growth potential.

Another group of companies on the OTC market are smaller growing companies. Make no mistake; there are also thousands of companies that will never go anywhere. They are in niche markets, they may be badly managed or have any number of problems. All of this makes it difficult to find those jewels we want the most. But there is also huge potential here. We just have to have the right tools to find them, and now we do.

By following a few simple rules and looking for the right things, we can not only find the perfect companies, but we can reduce our risk at the same time. We now have all the tools to build a perfect storm of investment opportunities.

Here’s what we do:

  • Locate all those companies that have a proven track record of growth over time.
  • Further reduce the list by examining price performance in the market
  • Rank them according to their greatest potential
  • Select only those in the top 10%
  • Look for those that have high demand products or services
  • Buy only those stocks
  • Hold for long term growth
  • Re-examine every year and replace those that have not performed up to expectations

That’s it! It is as simple as that. It doesn’t take a lot of time; you don’t have to have extensive financial or stock market knowledge and you don’t have to watch your stocks every day. In fact, it is better when you don’t. Just leave them alone. They will grow all by themselves.
