The Perfect Investment

By Jeff Clark
Monday, July 16, 2007

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 oil and gold, and as uncommon as rare stamps and Japanese real estate.
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, then there's Tom Dyson's 12% Letter and Sean Goldsmith's Dividend Grabber. And, in the fall, we're unveiling my new covered-call writing service, tentatively titled S&A Monthly Income. All three of these letters present high-income opportunities with limited downside risk.
Long-term, value-oriented investors won't find anything better than Dan Ferris' Extreme Value and S&A Penny Letter. 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's Investment Advisory, and Graham Summers' Inside Strategist. Porter and Graham have amazing track records. Their unique approach to research generates terrific ideas that pay off remarkably well.
Sector-specific investors have to love Matt Badiali, our resident geologist, and his two investment services, S&A Oil Report and S&A Gold Report. And Rob Fannon is, without a doubt, the best medical researcher I've ever seen. His Medical Investor newsletter is a new service that's already racking up terrific returns with terrific ideas.
Finally, there's Steve Sjuggerud's True Wealth and Sjuggerud Confidential. Steve is arguably the most successful newsletter writer in the business. He's a young pup, but he's been writing his letter longer than all the rest of us. And his mantra of "buy 'em cheap, hated, and in an uptrend," is repeated often by just about all of us at S&A.
Oh yeah, and then there's my options trading service, The S&A Short Report. We've already closed out 23 trades so far this year, and we profited on 19 of them. Five of those were up more than 100%. It's been a pretty good first half of 2007, and I'm hoping to do even better in the second half.
You get all of this stuff with an Alliance membership. But the real reason to join – the No. 1 reason to become an Alliance member – is to come to the annual Alliance Conference, which will be held in Cancun this November.
Each year, all of the S&A editors are challenged to come up with their best investment idea for the coming year. And they unveil their ideas at the annual Alliance Conference. As you might imagine, when you gather a group of highly competitive researchers together and invite them to bring their best ideas, you get some truly amazing results.
The first time I presented at the Alliance Conference was two years ago. I was the new kid on the block and was anxious to make a good impression. So, instead of one idea, I offered two. The first stock, North American Palladium (PAL) doubled in just three months. And my second pick, Stillwater Mining (SWC), gained 80% in five months.
At last year's conference, I recommended Pike Electric (PEC). The stock is up more than 50% in less than eight months.
I'm already working on a recommendation for this year's conference. As good as the previous picks turned out, I want to do even better. Heck, I have to. All the other editors are doing the same thing.
It's going to be an amazing conference. The catch? You have to be an Alliance member in order to attend.
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
