The Perfect Investment

By Jeff Clark
Monday, July 6, 2009

This investment has everything.
It offers high dividends along with terrific potential for growth. It focuses on long-term value, yet still offers the opportunity for short-term gains. It's profiting from sectors as popular as gold and energy, and as uncommon as Brazilian bonds and Iraqi oil drillers.
It's the S&A Alliance membership, and it's the single-best investment I ever made.
Now, before you go and dismiss this as some sort of shameless promotional plug, stay with me for a few moments...
I spent more than 20 years in the stock brokerage industry. During that time, I subscribed to dozens of newsletters, and I paid for some of the most expensive research on Wall Street. And I'm telling you, the Alliance membership was not only the best research I ever bought, but also the best value for my money.
I was so impressed with the quality of the S&A research that when I decided to retire from the brokerage business, I contacted S&A about publishing my own research. I didn't even consider writing for anyone else.
The Alliance membership has it all. If you're looking for income, there's Tom Dyson's 12% Letter and Mike Williams' True Income. Both of these letters present high-income opportunities with limited downside risk.
Alliance members also receive my own income-oriented newsletter, Advanced Income. This letter seeks to generate high rates of return by selling covered calls on low-risk stocks. We've recently racked up gains of 23% in two months on Anglo American, 24% in three months on Alcoa Aluminum, and 110% in just six months on Hecla Mining.
Long-term, value-oriented investors won't find anything better than Dan Ferris' Extreme Value. Dan is the best value guy in the business. When I was managing money for clients, I used Dan's ideas almost exclusively to fill out the value portion of their portfolios.
For growth ideas, the Alliance membership includes Porter Stansberry'sInvestment Advisory and Inside Strategist. Porter has an amazing track record. His detailed approach to research generates terrific ideas that pay off remarkably well.
Sector-specific investors have to love Matt Badiali, our resident geologist, and his S&A Oil Report. And George Huang is, without a doubt, the best medical researcher I've ever seen. His medical and biotech stock service, FDA Report, is racking up huge returns with terrific ideas.
There's also Steve Sjuggerud's True Wealth. Steve is arguably the most successful newsletter writer in the business. His mantra of "buy 'em cheap, hated, and in an uptrend" is repeated often by just about all of us at S&A.
Traders get my options trading service, The S&A Short Report, and Porter's Put Strategy Report. Both of these services use options to rack up ridiculously large gains. Short Report generated cumulative returns of more than 1,400% last year, and the Put Strategy Report has been profitable on more than 80% of its trades.
Members also get S&A's newest research service, Penny Trends. Brian Hunt and Tom Dyson collaborate to come up with the best small-cap trades in the market. And it's doing fabulous.
Finally, Alliance members get David Eifrig's Retirement Millionaire. This newsletter is filled with sage investment advice as well as money-saving ideas to help you retire in style.
I hope you'll consider joining the S&A Alliance. It is truly the best research you'll find anywhere, and it's a terrific value. And I'm not just speaking as an analyst for S&A. Remember, I was also a client.
Best regards and good trading,
Jeff Clark
