Received this in my e-mail along with all the other material but found some of the points here very apropos for QTMM.
Andy Obermueller wrote: “Most of you know me as the Chief Strategist of Game-Changing Stocks. The entire focus of my advisory — and my investment philosophy — is to find those situations where the “rubber meets the road.” I’m talking about those profitable instances where a company, technology, or trend is really about to soar.
And while the goal sounds noble, my earnest intentions mean nothing if I don’t have a method to fit my aims. Of course, I do have a method. And the best news is that its main tenets aren’t difficult to put to work in your own portfolio…
First, research is the only way you’ll successfully find the next big thing. Most game-changers are ignored by media outlets until they’re bigger trends. By then the opportunity for the biggest profits has passed.
And believe me, I know whereof I speak. I was business writer and editor for years at some of the nation’s largest papers. By the time you read a story in The Wall Street Journal or Forbes or Barron’s, the smart money is already in and scoring profits.
Now, I have a pretty big advantage of most investors. Much to the benefit of my readers, it’s my job to research these ideas. Most people simply don’t have the time.
My office is filled with clippings, newspapers, SEC reports, and magazines lying just about everywhere. (I read just about anything I can get my hands on.)(Sounds like some of the board members for QTMM on Investorshub http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/board.aspx?board_id=15185)
But research is only one part of the process. To profit the most from game-changing ideas, you also have to be an investor.
Now we all consider ourselves investors — after all, we buy stocks, right? That’s not quite what I’m talking about.
When you hear about “game-changers,” I bet you think of stocks that rise dramatically nearly overnight. You buy in, hold for a few weeks or days and then sell after a quick run-up. But in my experience, real game-changers see strong returns for months and years. (This is what we are really talking about here and that is what gets me all excited. It was once said over on Motley Fool the secret to making a fortune in the stock market was to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market. If QTMM and their quantum dots doesn’t fit that bill, I don’t know what does.)
Look at shares of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL). It was more than seven years ago when shares traded at $13. Now they’re at $337. That’s a gain of nearly 2,500% (An update as of 7-25-14 – “Apple is up 6000% since 2004”)
And if you look at the biggest winners in the market’s history, it’s the exact same story.
Walmart (NYSE: WMT) didn’t grow to a national presence overnight. Its shares didn’t soar for just a few weeks either. Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) may have grown quickly, but even those with the foresight to buy shares in the ’80s wish like hell they had hung on to them. As long as the trend behind an investment is still moving positively, I want to be profiting from it. And I have no problem seeing profits build year after year after year.
Many happy returns . . .
Chief Investment Strategist — Game-Changing Stocks”
Hope Andy’s point of view helps some of those on the fence make their decision. “I think this stock is a long term investment, say 20 – 25 years. Imagine the first 5-10, (after confirmation) will be the glory years with the next 10+ good for growth/dividends, (jmho).” That’s right in line with Mr. Obermuellers message here. But you have to take some $’s off the table at some point and not feel like you made a mistake. Just don’t get greedy.
Good luck and do your DD before investing.
