An opportunity to leverage a Depression
By Michael Markowski
For the past weeks, I have been intently focused on defense. My priority has been to educate my readers about protecting their assets from market risk. With “Fed can’t Fool Mother Nature”, the third of my three pillar articles published yesterday May 13th my focus is now on offense. I have identified a potential capital gains producing opportunity that can leverage a severe economic decline. However, it needs to be acted upon immediately.
What I am now emphasizing to my readers is to allocate 10% to 20% of their assets to build a diversified portfolio of private startups and early-stage companies that I recommend. A private startups portfolio will be the only long-term capital gains strategy that will work for the foreseeable future. The rationale behind startups and penny stocks being the best offense during a secular bear market was explained in my Money Show workshop. See video of workshop at bottom of page.
My focus is to identify small private companies or startups with highly scalable business models which can fully leverage a severe recession or depression and a secular bear market which will likely last 15 to 20 years.
I have identified several. One of them which has an offering available is ChoiceTrade. The worse the economy gets the faster the privately held online broker with clients in 100 countries will grow. Traditional venture capital will be scarce. The primary source of venture capital to start and grow businesses which will be essential for the US economy to fully recover will be from online crowdfunding. The masses instead of the classes will become the primary provider of venture capital.
ChoiceTrade’s plan is to be the first online broker to be fully integrated to:
- Raise capital for a private startup from a client
- Provide secondary market liquidity for clients who purchase shares of privately held startups
- Enable a client to utilize the same brokerage account to invest in and hold publicly and privately traded shares. For more about ChoiceTrade and videos see my “ChoiceTrade shares ready to rocket” article.
My recommendation, assuming an allocation of 20% of a portfolio to privately held startups, is to invest 1% of liquid assets in ChoiceTrade, a simple $102 per $10,000 of liquid assets.
The good news is that as few as $102 of ChoiceTrade shares can currently be purchased at $1.70 per share through a crowdfunding offering.
The bad news is that ChoiceTrade’s shares must be purchased or reserved by 11:59PM EST today Thursday, May 14, 2020.
A minimum of $102 of shares can be purchased by anyone including unaccredited investors at Wunderfund, an SEC-regulated funding platform.
The shares can be purchased 24/7 via a debit card, credit card, ACH and wire transfer up until Thursday May 14, 2020 at 5:00PM EST. Shares can also be reserved by 5:00 PM and paid for within a week.
