Around The World Unanimously Agree:
"The Next Global Crash
But there is one time-tested strategy that could ensure
your wealth not just remains safe, but also grows
during the tough times ahead
Keep reading to find out how we generated
more than TWICE the return as the Sensex
using this exact same strategy
even as the Global Crisis unfolded...
And how YOU too could use it to continually grow
your wealth through good times as well as bad!
Marc Faber, the world-renowned investor recently admitted, "There's still a 100 percent chance the world heads into recession."
Jim Rogers, another investing expert, too agreed when he said, "The Global Economy Is headed For "Financial Armageddon" And Neither Presidential Candidate Will Get Us Out Of This Mess"
Then Bill Gross, who oversees more than US$1.8 Trillion worth of securities acknowledged by saying, "Global Economy Is Like A Marriage Teetering On The Edge Of Divorce".
And George Soros, an acclaimed financial author and one of the richest guys in the world too recently said, "The Global Financial System Is In A 'Self-Reinforcing Process Of Disintegration'"
All these point to just one thing -- that the next global crisis is perhaps closer than we think.
And if YOU think it's not going to impact India much, and we're somehow going to get through it with minimum damage like the last time, then think again!
Let's face it - the last time there was a global recession in 2008-09, India managed to survive it purely on the basis of high domestic consumption and a vibrant Indian economy.
But now, things are completely different...
Now the industrial output has fallen to all time record lows. The rupee value keeps depreciating by the day. Growth has slowed. There is policy paralysis.
And to make matters worse, rating agencies around the world have downgraded the investment status for India too.
So what do you do in a scenario like this?
then we've got good news for you!
We've got a strategy that could make you stunning returns not just during the coming uncertain times – but also for the rest of your life.
Yes! It is the same strategy that helped one investor multiply his wealth a whopping 5,131 times over a 47-year period!
In other words, this simple investment strategy would have turned an investment of Rs 10,000 in 1964 to a whopping Rs 5.1 crore at the end of 2011.
Or for that matter...
Don't worry. This is nothing but growing your money at 20% year after year consistently.
Do this over a LONG period, and that is when the magic happens!
Over the next few minutes, I'd like to give you all the details on this proven investing strategy.
But before that, here's an example to show this strategy works even in today's world...
TWICE the return as the Sensex. . .
I'd now like to take you back to the year 2009...
You might remember that it was a year when investors were very, VERY skeptical about putting money into stocks.
Global economy appeared to be nowhere close to recovery. There was HUGE uncertainty in the markets worldwide. And the Satyam scam that occurred during the same year dented the confidence of Indian investors even further.
Simply put, many people had almost given up on stocks.
But while millions were busy pulling all their money out of the market... or reducing their exposure significantly, a small group of investors was given access to a very profitable portfolio based on this exact same strategy that we started building in November 2009.
And in the next 3 years that followed, there were alternating periods of crisis followed by euphoria followed by crisis once again.
But despite everything that was going on outside, this portfolio continued to make handsome returns for its investors.
Assume one has invested Rs 1 lac each in the stocks of our portfolio... and simultaneously Rs 1 lac each in the Sensex every time.
And then, the point to point returns are calculated.
This way while the Sensex itself grew by 13% since November 2009, this special portfolio grew by 29% point to point.
In other words, more than TWICE the return as the Sensex!
Just take a look at the performance based on NAV...
The blue line shows you how the Sensex has performed during this time.
And the red line? How our special portfolio has performed.
As you can see, our portfolio has outperformed the market consistently... regardless of the upturns and downturns that were going on outside!
And now, we want to show you how YOU can become a part of this group too...
And continually grow YOUR wealth through good, bad and indifferent economies alike!
for all economic climates. . .
So you must be wondering...
How does one go about safeguarding... and multiplying... their wealth at the same time amidst these 'never-ending' cycles of boom and bust?
And, how does one do it without constantly worrying about every small change that the stock market goes through?
We'll tell you how...
By simply NOT caring about "the stock market" and "the economy".
Yes, you heard that right.
If you want to build real wealth from stocks in the coming years, you should stop worrying about whether the Sensex will hit 19,000 or 22,000 or 15,000... or how well or how poorly the economy will do going forward.
Because with the strategy I'm going to show you now, these things don't even matter!
The only thing that matters is that you invest in companies that will provide long-term investment value, rather than in fads or 'hot' themes that may be profitable in the short run, but are likely to run out of steam soon.
These stocks could belong to any stock category or industry. They could be blue-chips, or midcaps, or something else.
But the most important thing is that they should meet the certain criteria without fail.
In a nutshell, these companies MUST have:
none other than Warren Buffett himself!
And we all know how well he has done. . .
Yes, this is what the legendary investor, Warren Buffett, has done his whole life. (In fact, this is HIS investing approach that we have described above)
And how much has he made to show for it?
US$ 44 billion at last count!
Warren Buffett achieved tremendous success with not one, not two, but several stocks that have multiplied several times over a number of years.
For instance, he has multiplied his investment in stocks such as:
✓ Washington Post - 64 times in 39 years,
✓ Coca-Cola – 22 times in 24 years, and
✓ Gillette – 8 times in 16 years
All by following this very same strategy.
And this strategy has worked exceedingly well over a long period of time too.
For instance, Washington Post, the newspaper company, was the first to be acquired among the above 3 examples... in 1973.
As per the reasoning he later offered, Buffett bought Washington Post simply because the company, apart from doing good business, was selling at a much lower price than its true business value.
And till date the stock has multiplied his money a whopping 64 times!
Then the 2nd company to be acquired by Buffett among the top 3 was Coca-Cola... in 1988.
Among other reasons, the key factor that prompted Buffett to buy Coca-Cola (as he later clarified) was that he believed in the simplicity and sustainability of its business.
Coca-Cola too has grown about 22 times in 24 years.
And the last of the 3 companies to be acquired by Buffett was Gillette, the shaving products major... in 1989.
Buffett's simple reasoning to buy Gillette can be summed up in his own words, "It's pleasant to go to bed every night knowing there are 2.5 billion males in the world who have to shave in the morning."
So clearly, this was not any "fad" that would have vanished in a couple of years, but something with a long-term value.
And the stock also was selling at lower than its real value at that time.
For these reasons, Buffett decided to invest in Gillette and it multiplied his investment almost 8 times in 16 years.
In the same way, Buffett was also able to multiply his investment in many other stocks also... both prior to and after this period.
At the end of 2004, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway had around US$44 billion in cash. And the value was same at the end of 2005, 2006 and 2007 as well.
Buffett had simply refused to buy any shares during all this time.
But when the recession hit in 2008, Buffett started acquiring shares in large quantities. And that too, shares of not just any companies, but top companies like General Electric, BNSF Railway and Constellation Energy.
And the important thing to note here is...
Normally, these shares would have cost a LOT more. But by waiting for the right moment, Buffett was able to get some of the best companies at almost half-off!
This shows that if you use Buffett's principles, you could make GREAT returns investing in some of the BEST companies... even when the economic situation may not be so good.
And it also shows that even today Buffett's approach works as well as it did many years (or even decades) back.
And it's for this very reason that YOU should emulate Buffett's same principles too, while identifying stocks for YOUR portfolio.
Simply stated, you should identify companies that are doing simple businesses that can be easily understood, have consistent earnings history and sustainable growth path, are managed by honest and competent people, and whose stocks are available at attractive prices with an adequate margin of safety.
But this is where we've got something special for you...
While Barely Lifting A Finger!
You see, if you go about implementing this approach the normal way, you'd have to:
But the fact is, most people don't have the financial knowhow to do all of this themselves.
And that is where we come in...
You see, we've got a service where we will actually do all of this for you.
We will do all the time-consuming work, all the background research and uncover the best Buffett-style stocks for you.
All you will have to do is invest in the stocks we tell you, when we tell you to... and cash in when these companies grow in the few years.
And, we'll also monitor all our recommendations continuously...
So if something unexpectedly does go wrong with a particular stock, we ourselves will tell you to get rid of it.
Believe me, there won't be an easier way than this to possess a real wealth-building portfolio.

The Easiest Way To Invest Just Like Warren Buffett,
The Greatest Investor Of All Time
ValuePro is our portfolio recommendation service, through which we will handpick stocks and build an entire portfolio for you based on Warren Buffett's investing principles.
Our mission through ValuePro is to identify 12-15 stocks over a 2-year period by following Warren Buffett's time-tested principles, which could see their stock prices multiply 4 to 6 times over the next 5 to 10 years.
Imagine having a potential investment in mind and wondering what Warren Buffett would do about it...
Obviously, you can't call him up to get his advice. But you can surely be a part of the ValuePro.
In short, ValuePro will be the 'next best thing' to asking Buffett himself if you are making a good investment decision.
When you join ValuePro, we will take the entire guesswork out of your investing and tell you which stocks to buy, when to buy and even when to sell(if required)!
You'll receive a monthly ValuePro newsletter from us on the first Monday of every month.
And like I said, ValuePro will recommend good companies as and when they become attractively priced.But our ValuePro newsletter will still reach you every month without fail.
In the months when we have nothing to recommend to you, we will discuss a company which is not a good buy yet, but could become attractive if the price falls a bit more in the future.
In addition, the monthly newsletter will also include excerpts of our interaction with companies' managements, suppliers, competitors, and even customers.
On the whole, we'll identify and recommend 12-15 stocks over a 2-year period to complete the portfolio like I said earlier.
Look, we do not want to get your hopes up TOO high.
In this modern age, it's just not possible to beat the market the way Buffett has done so successfully over his life.
As you may know, every Rs 100 invested in Buffett's company Berkshire Hathaway turned into Rs 5,13,155 over a 47-year period.
Making that kind of returns will be impossible for you today. And at the same time, we at Equitymaster could also get our predictions wrong once in a while.
So what we can promise you instead is that by joining ValuePro, you could generate tremendous wealth for yourself over the next few years...
...by becoming an integral part of a process that aims to emulate Buffett's investing principles, and taking advantage of the wealth-generating opportunities that are available here in India.
At this point, you might want to ask...
What Buffett Has Done?
Well, you have already seen how our first ValuePro portfolio has consistently beaten the market.
Our portfolio generated more than TWICE the return as the Sensex.

But at the same time, we're not stock brokers. And we don't gain any commissions even if you buy the stocks we recommend.
However, our credibility... and more importantly, our income... depend on whether or not the stocks we recommend make you money.
Because if you don't make money from our recommendations, you will simply not renew your subscriptions. Furthermore, you'll also tell your friends not to sign up for our services.
For this reason...
Here's what one subscriber had to say about our research...
we actually have our own money in it too!
Yes, you read that right.
To show you how confident we are about our research, we also invest some of our own money in the stocks we recommend to you through ValuePro.
In fact, we invest Rs 100,000 in every stock that we recommend to you through ValuePro.
And to ensure you have the first go at them, we buy the stocks 10 trading sessions after we recommend them to you.
Anyway, what this means is that we'll always be on the same side as you.
So you can rest assured knowing that we won't recommend some stocks to you and watch from a safe distance while you risk your money in them.
ValuePro is your (and also our) chance to practice sound investing principles and generate tremendous returns over the next few years...just like Buffett has done.
And now, you also have a chance to be a part of ValuePro... and at a HUGE discount too!

And we track the portfolio closely so that you can achieve this goal without any problems.

But if something unexpectedly does go wrong with a particular stock, we ourselves will tell you what to do with it.
Believe me, it's a great feeling to know that you will never be left to wonder how things turned bad all of a sudden. And this feeling of security must have been one of the factors that made ValuePro even more appealing to its subscribers.
