PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD
Hi, my name is Frank Bermea.
I'm the publisher for Profitable Trading, one of the largest independent investment research firms in America.
Today, I'd like to tell you about a secret indicator that only a few hundred people know about.
It's never been revealed in the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Forbes or any other major financial newspaper.
But since we first published it in full a little over a year ago, it has tipped off that small handful of investors to:
20% gains in 14 days…
82% gains in 48 days…
118% gains in 86 days…
266% gains in 12 months…
And dozens more.
In fact, it quickly became the most accurate indicator in our company's history, and spotted many of the best-performing stocks of 2014.
It tagged the 7th, 9th, 11th, and 16th best-performing stocks at various stages of their runs... and was able to deliver an average gain of 109% between them.
Keep in mind: These weren't four of the top 20 fly-by-night penny stocks. These were four of the top 20 profitable companies with a market cap over $100 million.
And our indicator found all of them.
We call this secret indicator the Alpha Score because it consistently beats the market, with less risk than buy-and-hold investing. It can flag exactly which stocks are about to jump double and triple digits in the coming days… weeks… and months.
I know that might seem hard to believe. So let me quickly show you how it works…
There's a company named Westmoreland Coal (NASDAQ: WLB). Most folks have never heard of it. It's an energy firm out of Colorado whose share price hadn't budged in two years.
However, on Dec. 18, 2013, this obscure company flashed an Alpha Score of 158.
This Alpha Score wasn't particularly high, given that the max score is 200.
But still, less than 10% of stocks ever have a score that high at any given time. So we published a report that day telling investors to buy shares NOW.
As soon as we published it, the stock bounced 34% in two weeks... and 51% in six weeks.
Over this same period, the market gained 3%.
But that's not all. Two months earlier, our Alpha Score indicator discovered an even bigger move…
This time it happened with a drug manufacturer named Gentium S.p.A (NASADQ: GENTY). Like Westmoreland Coal, this company was virtually unknown, getting very little attention in the mainstream press.
But on Oct. 9, 2013, its Alpha Score came in at 198 – a near-perfect score.
We rushed an Alpha Alert to investors, saying that it was an immediate "buy."
Sure enough, it delivered an 83% gain in 28 days, and kept going from there.
Of course, not every stock with a high Alpha Score will jump that much. But we've tested it on all kinds of stocks. Blue-chip stocks, high-yield stocks, micro cap, energy, you name it.
Again and again, stocks with a high Alpha Score skyrocket in the days, weeks and months following their "buy" signal…
10% in 10 days for ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN)…
39% in three months for EQT Midstream Partners (NYSE: EQM)…
20% in less than two weeks from Bank of Ireland (NYSE: IRE)…
Given the potency of this indicator, it should come as no surprise that we're EXTREMELY protective of it. We've only showed it to a few hundred people.
I can't even reveal the full name of the trading expert behind it in this presentation. Instead, I'll simply refer to him by his first name, Tom, for privacy reasons.
See, we know how important it is to keep a powerful indicator like this a secret. Once it's widely known, everybody starts using it, and it loses its edge.
However, it's my job to provide investors like you with the best investment strategies.
The kind of strategies that are helping one Profitable Trading reader, Bruce S. of Pennsylvania, average "about $4,000 per month"…
And that helped William P. of Spokane, WA, pocket $26,000 in a single month.
So in this presentation, I'm going to open up the secret Alpha Score playbook and reveal exactly how this indicator works.
As we speak, it has identified several stocks that are showing the exact same kinds of "buy" signals as the stocks that crushed the market over the past year.
Of course, I can't promise these stocks will all end up being top performers.
But remember: This indicator also tagged 29 stocks right before they delivered double-digit gains in a month… including several that went on to deliver gains well over 100%.
So there's every reason to believe it could hand you several double- and triple-digit winners in the coming year.
With that in mind, I'm going to show you how it works.
I'll show you why history says it could deliver double- and triple-digit gainers every year for the next several decades…
Why this indicator could also protect you from the next big market crash…
And I'll even show you the name and ticker of one of the top stocks this indicator has tagged as a "buy."
Less than 1 in 1,275 stocks ever get this strong of a buy signal. When this has happened before, stocks have shot up over 50% in as little as six weeks… and gone on to be some of the best-performing stocks of the year.
This one could be next… and you'll get its name and a full write-up in this presentation.
You truly can't find this information anywhere else. But it will only be available for a limited time. And there's a good reason for that, as I'll explain in a moment…
As you can probably tell, the Alpha Score isn't your everyday indicator.
It has nothing to do with options, buying or selling puts, taking out a margin account, or anything remotely complicated or risky.
In fact, it's based on triggers that have been independently verified by academics and fund managers to be low risk… and even able to sidestep market crashes.
To add to that, the man behind it, Tom, is also one of the most risk-averse traders I know. He's one of only 1,400 traders in the world to earn the distinguished status of Chartered Market Technician. He's also managed as much as $20 million, so he knows first-hand how costly taking unnecessary risks can be.
But this obsession with safety hasn't kept the Alpha Score from delivering quick double- and triple-digit gains…
Let's jump back to October 2013. That's the month we started sending out Alpha Alerts to an exclusive group of investors.
At the time, the market was booming – up 4.5% that month alone.
But we'd tested the Alpha Score and knew it could get much bigger returns.
So we fired up the Alpha Score system…
Sure enough, it flashed a 170 for a company named Kodiak Oil & Gas (NYSE: KOG).
Kodiak wasn't on a lot of people's radar… it had only gained 9% in 18 months.
But starting the day after we sent out our Alpha Alert, it proceeded to jump 13% in just two weeks.
Take November 2013, for example.
At the time, the market was building on its October gains. It gained an additional 2.5%. Many pundits were starting to wonder if it would just be better to invest in an index fund that tracks the S&P 500.
But not those few investors who knew about the Alpha Score. They banked returns as much as 11 times greater than the market – and in half the time.
On Nov. 7, for example, JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) came in with an Alpha Score of 169.
Normally, the airline industry is tough. Delta, Frontier, American Airlines and many more filed for bankruptcy protection in the past decade.
And indeed, it had been a bumpy ride for JetBlue's investors.
Shares were only up about 5% over the previous three years – much worse than the market.
But right after the Alpha Score pegged it, the stock bounced 16.5% in two weeks.
Amazingly, that wasn't the best "buy" signal of the month, though.
The Alpha Score also flashed "buy" for Manhattan Bridge Capital (NASDAQ: LOAN), a small firm out of New York.
Much like JetBlue, Manhattan's share price hadn't done much for the previous five years. It was trading at about a third of its IPO price.
But lo and behold, within just days of the signal, Manhattan Bridge delivered a 12.2% return.
All told, in November you could have booked the two big gainers mentioned above, plus several more two-week gains: 12%… 4.8%… 12.4%… another 29.3%… 13.6%… even 61.5%… and several more.
Note that I'm not talking annualized gains here. These are actual, verifiable returns from companies large and small trading on American stock exchanges.
And again, these gains had nothing to do with covered calls, leverage, or anything like that.
Every single stock move was spotted beforehand by an Alpha Score system that's been independently proven to deliver double- and triple-digit winners.
For example, this system triggered a "buy" signal with Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) on May 2, 2014. By the end of the year, it was up 75% – more than seven times the market's return.
And on July 14, 2014, it spotted Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ: SWKS). It was up 14% within a week… and over 50% by year's end.
And you could have done even better with Panhandle Oil (NYSE: PHX). We spotted it on Feb. 26, 2014, and it delivered a 46% gain in its first three months.
But what's really exciting is that the Alpha Score continues to trigger "buys."
In fact, the next Alpha Alert comes out a few days from now. And when it does, if you're granted access, you could make several times more than the market no matter what kind of investor you are.
The Alpha Score will signal buys for popular blue-chip stocks… defensive stocks… large-cap stocks… even stocks that you've never heard of.
As we speak, one stock is at 179. Another just reached 184. Another is at 189. While obviously nothing is certain, if history is any guide, we could have some big winners on our hands.
This is especially exciting considering how much money folks have made by following the Alpha Score in the past…
"My most profitable trades from your picks are: 1) HIMX - I bought at $4.86 sold at $9.51 for 95.68%, 2) PRMW - I bought at $1.85 sold at $2.34 for 26.5%, and 3) SANM - I bought at $14.75 sold at $17.30 for 17.59% all in less than 3 months!"
– George H, Kenner, LA
Consider December 2013.
The market closed out one of its best years ever – 29.6% gains.
Most investors would be thrilled with that kind of year.
But believe it or not, had you known about the Alpha Score, you could have beaten the market's annual returns – in just one month.
On Dec. 18, 2013, Jazz Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: JAZZ) flashed an Alpha Score of 182, which isn't even an "out of this world" score, and it still crushed the market with 31.9% gains in just four weeks.
And two weeks earlier, on Dec. 4, another health care company, ANI Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ANIP), shot up even higher. Its Alpha Score came in at 174…
…and it proceeded to return 52.4% to finish the year.
By mid-January, it was up more than 75%.
We eventually closed the trade out for a 114.1% gain in eight months – turning every $10,000 into $21,400.
In 2014, the Alpha Score continued to deliver market-beating returns.
After a strong end to 2013, the market finally soured, dropping 3.6% in January.
Well, following all 19 of the "buys" flashed by the Alpha Score that month, you would have done much better.
Not only would you have beaten the market overall… you could have made as much as 9% in 29 days from a stock called Matrix Service Company (NASDAQ: MTRX).
Its Alpha Score came in at 185 on Jan. 2, and it went on to deliver a near double-digit gain while the market tanked.
February, March and April had more of the same. In 14-day periods throughout those months, you could have seen:
22.1% gains with Flexsteel Industries (NASDAQ: FLXS)… 10.7% gains with ARRIS Group (NASDAQ: ARRS)… 20.6% gains with NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ: NXPI)… 11.6% gains with Corning (NYSE: GLW)… 20.9% gains with Michael Kors Holdings Limited (NYSE: KORS)… and a dozen more.
May, June, July, August… all the way into 2015, the Alpha Score has continued to find big winners.
It spotted Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) in late 2014, right before it soared 29% in two months…
It spotted Centene (NYSE: CNC) – a completely overlooked health care company – in August, 2014. It soared 41% in four months.
It continued flashing "buy" for Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU), which eventually soared 109%.
It kept flashing "buy" for Hi-Crush Partners (NYSE: HCLP) and Bitauto Holdings (NYSE: BITA), helping investors ride those stocks and pocket additional gains of 61% and 74%, respectively.
Bottom line: From the day we first revealed the Alpha Score in full to a small group of traders – Oct. 9, 2013 – it has picked stocks that beat the market time and again while delivering…
And as I mentioned earlier, it found four of the top 20 stocks of 2014.
See for yourself…
|1. Arc Group Worldwide||ARCW|
|2. Natural Health||NHTC|
|3. Highpower Int'l||HPJ|
|4. Cardinal Ethanol||CRDE|
|5. Wildan Group||WLDN|
|6. ALJ Regional Holdings||ALJJ|
|7. BitAuto Holdings||BITA|
|8. China Digital||STV|
|9. Pacific Ethanol||PEIX|
|10. Emerge Energy Services||EMES|
|11. Federated National||FHNC|
|12. Vipshop Holdings||VIPS|
|13. CT Partners||CTP|
|14. Covenant Transportation||CVTI|
|15. Granite Falls||GFGY|
|16. ANI Pharamceuticals||ANIP|
|17. Aemetis Inc||AMTX|
|18. Ladenburg Thalmann||LTS|
|19. MGP Ingredients||MGPI|
|20. Lannett Co.||LCI|
Now, obviously not every stock is going to soar. But the average losing position has been just 8.4%. So those who've followed the Alpha Score could have captured huge gains – without putting their nest egg at risk.
And note too, that the gains have come from ALL market sectors.
Blue chips… high-yielders… gold miners… dividend growers… large caps… international… energy… micro caps… tech… and more.
I hope you're starting to see how accurate the Alpha Score system can be at finding HUGE stock moves right before they happen.
You can also see why all eyes are on the next Alpha Alert. Tom's seeing some of the highest Alpha Scores to date… the kind that could deliver immediate gains and long-term growth.
Because the truth is, not only can the Alpha Score produce windfalls practically overnight… it's also proven that it can beat the market over the long haul.
In fact, impartial third parties have shown that the Alpha Score components have beaten the market for the past 60-plus years.
Let me show you…
To fully grasp the Alpha Score's long-term potential, you first have to understand something…
The Alpha Score is derived by combining two of the market's most effective triggers – one a technical trigger, and the other, a fundamental trigger.
These "Alpha Triggers," as we call them, aren't very well known by the investment community. You may see them mentioned here and there individually. But I've never found a single website or financial magazine that shows how powerful they are when combined.
But of course, Tom has been studying these triggers for decades. He's been using variations of them for 20 years, including when he worked at Merrill Lynch, and during a yearlong apprenticeship under one of the world's greatest traders.
They've proven to work during bull markets, bear markets, wars, market bubbles, inflation and deflation.
"Alpha Trigger #1" has been independently verified in peer-reviewed academic journals to deliver market-beating returns.
One landmark study was performed in 2012. An investment manager named James O'Shaughnessy tested over 60 different market triggers going all the way back to 1926. He conducted exhaustive back-tests of various fundamental and technical variables to identify which, if any, were predictive of future performance.
He looked at all kinds of metrics people use to buy stocks: low P/E ratios, low price-to-book ratios, high dividend yields, high profit margins, etc.
His research demonstrated that Trigger #1 outperformed all others and consistently beat the market by a huge margin.
See for yourself…
Between 1926 and 2009, the market turned $10,000 into $38 million.
But Alpha Trigger #1 turned $10,000 into an astonishing $572 million.
The well-respected investment firm Value Line has also proven that Trigger #1 beats the market.
Value Line has been around since the 1930s. And in 1965, it started an index with Trigger #1 as its main growth driver.
How has this index done? As Value Line says, the results "have been spectacular."
Between 1965 and 2013, thanks to Trigger #1, the index returned 28,586%. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones was up a paltry 1,718%.
But here's where it gets really interesting…
Not only have stocks with high Alpha Scores beat the S&P 500 going all the way back to 1926… they've also been extremely safe.
Part of the reason for this extra safety is "Alpha Trigger #2."
This second trigger is a crucial indicator of success, and is a favorite of legendary investors.
Peter Lynch, whose Magellan Fund returned 29% annually over the 13 years he ran it…
Billionaire Donald Yacktman, whose fund has returned an average of 22.3% per year over the past five years, crushing the market…
And Warren Buffett, the world's greatest investor…
All these gurus have said "Alpha Trigger #2" is a key factor in analyzing a stock.
On top of that, The Wall Street Journal says: "Forget About Profit, [Alpha Trigger #2] Is King."
Fifty years of data back this up. In James O'Shaughnessy's research, he found that stocks with Trigger #2 beat the market, but also have a higher level of safety. Going back to 1964, these stocks were, on average, 11% less volatile per year than the market.
No wonder financial analyst Robert Barone says that "Alpha Trigger #2" provides "the ultimate margin of safety."
To be clear, this trigger has nothing to do with common metrics like the P/E ratio or earnings per share. Those can be manipulated, and therefore, don't provide the safety we're looking for. Enron, after all, had strong earnings before it plunged.
That's not the case with "Alpha Trigger #2." In fact, Investopedia says it offers "a better representation of the company's operation" than commonly-used metrics.
That's why, when you combine Trigger #2 with Trigger #1, I can confidently state with near-100% certainty that you won't ever experience an Enron-like collapse – or anything close to that.
Of course, occasionally there are small losses. But as you've seen, the elements behind the Alpha Score have obliterated the market for over half a century, which has seen every type of market.
Bottom line: Figuring conservatively, I believe the Alpha Score could deliver numerous double-digit gains in a matter of weeks… and several triple-digit gains over the next year, without extra risk.
And it's likely that these gains will come from a broad range of stocks: large, small and everything in between.
Obviously nothing is guaranteed – and you should always keep in mind that investing involves risk.
But remember: Right out of the gate, the Alpha Score churned out a 20% gain in 14 days and a 19% gain in seven days.
And many stocks have gone on to boast 33%… 119%… even 266% gains – all in less than a year.
And remember, too, that the upcoming Alpha Alert is flashing some of the highest scores we've EVER seen – as high as 189. If history is any guide, some of these stocks could end up being the biggest winners yet.
The point is, the Alpha Score has beaten the market in the long and short term, with all different kinds of stocks. So I think – no matter what kind of investor you are – you owe it to yourself to at least give it a look.
But if you'd like to do so, you're going to have to act fast. Because Tom will NEVER allow this secret strategy to be widely known…
You see, as you can imagine, Tom is very smart. He's one of only about 1,400 traders in the world to earn the distinguished status of Chartered Market Technician (CMT).
To earn the CMT, you have to take three exams totaling over 10 hours. Then you must pass a code of ethics examination… work in the industry for at least three years… and then find and be sponsored by a current CMT. Not easy.
He's also earned his Series 3 (Commodity) and Series 65 (Investment Advisor Representative) licenses…
Co-chaired the Austin, Texas chapter for the Market Technicians Association…
Managed $20 million…
And apprenticed under one of the world's top traders.
But most importantly, he's very protective of the Alpha Score. To this day, it remains a secret to everyone except a very small group of traders.
Why so secretive?
Because it's been proven that once a market-beating strategy gets too widely known, it can lose its effectiveness.
G. William Schwert, a professor of finance at the University of Rochester, explains that:
"After they are documented and analyzed in the academic literature, [market-beating strategies] often seem to disappear…"
For example, back in 1981, an academic named Rolf Banz published a paper on something called the "small-firm effect." This paper showed that buying small-cap stocks generated "abnormal returns," even when adjusted for risk.
Indeed, both the Federal Reserve and Standard and Poor's proved that, between 1970 and 1983, small-cap stocks beat large-cap stocks.
At around the same time, researchers uncovered the "value effect," which showed that buying stocks with low P/E ratios earned market-beating returns.
But an interesting thing happened after these two market-beating effects were publicized. They vanished.
As Schwert went on to say in his research paper, "The size effect and the value effect seem to have disappeared after the papers that highlighted them were published."
Indeed, financial author Keith Redhead wrote that there was evidence "that the small-firm advantage reversed during the 1980s," shortly after it was made public.
But these aren't the only strategies to lose their effectiveness after coming to light…
You may have heard of the "Dogs of the Dow." This strategy was made famous by investment manager Michael O'Higgins in his 1991 book, "Beating the Dow."
All O'Higgins did was invest in the 10 highest-yielding Dow stocks – the laggards. Since they're still in the Dow, so the theory goes, they're still good stocks and are likely to rebound.
And rebound they did. Back-testing showed that this simple strategy beat the market going all the way back to the 1920s. O'Higgins had been using it for years, dazzling clients with big, consistent returns.
But once again, the very year after the book revealed the strategy, performance lagged.
After beating the market for decades, between 1992 and 2011, the "Dogs" performed no better than the market itself.
Another spoiled strategy was the so-called "January Effect."
Because of tax-loss selling and other factors, for many years January was a great time to buy stocks.
In fact, research showed that you could average 7x better returns in January than any other month.
But then people started talking about it. In 1976, two academics – Michael Rozeff and William Kinney – showed that between 1904 and 1974, January returns averaged 3.5%. The other months were closer to 0.5%.
The cat was out of the bag.
More and more research papers surfaced, and before long, this once-powerful strategy had lost its winning edge.
As Investopedia states, "This historical trend, however, has been less pronounced in recent years because the markets have adjusted for it."
Why does this happen?
Once the strategies are made public, everybody starts doing it. That's again according to Schwert, a professor who's studied this phenomenon as much as anybody.
He concluded, "The activities of practitioners who implement [market-beating strategies] to take advantage of anomalous [market] behavior can cause the anomalies to disappear…"
In other words, as more and more people start doing it, it becomes harder and harder to find hidden opportunities.
We see the same thing happen in other fields, too…
For instance, in the late '90s the Oakland A's were about the only baseball team using advanced stats to evaluate players.
And since no one else was doing it, it was easy. The team easily scooped up talented, overlooked minor leaguers. They found future stars like Johnny Damon and Nick Swisher, for example, who would later be key players for the New York Yankees in their 2009 World Series run.
But over time, more and more people caught on to what the A's were doing. Then the book "Moneyball" was published. Pretty soon, everybody was using advanced stats.
Now it's a lot harder for the A's to find overlooked players.
And as sportswriter Andrew Koo reported, "Once [their] methods pervaded front offices, the A's slipped back into losing."
That's why the creator of the Alpha Score has not made his findings public. After all, if you discovered the key to making a fortune trading stocks, would you share it with the world?
If you did, history says it would lose its power.
That's why, to this day, the Alpha Score remains very much a secret – and remains very powerful…
For instance, in May 2013 it signaled that Micron Technology was a "buy." Before that, Micron looked like your average tech stock: big jump during the tech bubble, mostly flat otherwise.
Not a lot of investors were giving it the time of day.
But that's because they didn't know it had an insanely high Alpha Score of 199. Less than 1 in 5,000 stocks have a score that high at any given time.
Take a look at what happened next…
MU popped 28% in less than six weeks… 60% in less than five months… and 110% in less than nine months.
That's the power of the Alpha Score in action. And as long as it remains largely unknown, it should continue to find fast-moving stocks.
In fact, as we speak, the Alpha Score is flashing "buy" on a little-known stock.
It has found a high-scoring stock that's seen extreme demand, particularly over the past year. It's essential to the next phase of America's cell phone revolution, and appears to be on its way to high double- or even triple-digit growth.
I'll give you its name in a moment, but first, there's an urgent matter you need to know about…
Tom has used variations of the Alpha Score for years. And we're passionate about keeping it confidential.
But our mission here at Profitable Trading is to help the investment community in any way we can. So he agreed to let a few hundred more people in on the secret.
To that end, we're circulating a research report that reveals how the Alpha Score works… but only for a very limited time.
Remember: We can't have our secret getting out. We have to keep the time frame short to make it hard for word to spread quickly.
So what I've done is put together a special report that explains exactly how we combine the two Alpha triggers to figure out which stocks have a high probability of bouncing in the near future.
I can almost guarantee that most investors would NEVER think to combine these two triggers. On the surface, they don't seem to have anything to do with each other. Only after my team and I spent literally hundreds of hours researching were we convinced that the triggers should be combined.
In this report, you'll see how to combine them. And you'll also learn how the Alpha Score could protect you from market crashes, inflation, rising interest rates and more.
This report is called: The Alpha Score: The Secret to Finding Stocks Before They Soar.
I urge you to get this report today. I believe it's the best way for you to both protect and grow your wealth throughout the year. You won't find all the information it contains in one place anywhere else.
It explains in clear, simple language how to combine the two scores, and how you can start using the Alpha Score within the next few minutes. I think you'll be surprised at how easy and intuitive it is.
So how much does this report cost?
Actually, I'd like to give it to you absolutely free. All I ask in return is that you try out Tom's research service, Alpha Trader.
I've been in this business for years, and I've come across scores of research publications. Without a doubt, Alpha Trader is one of the best at catering to both conservative and aggressive investors.
Twice a month, Tom fires up the Alpha Score system and discloses the highest-ranked Alpha Score stocks across 10 different types of investments.
He has a portfolio with the best-performing small caps… another with the best large caps… yet another with the best-performing energy stocks… and so on, all the way up to 10 portfolios.
So whether you're an ultra-defensive investor or a high-growth micro-cap investor, you'll find your kind of stocks in this publication.
For example, back in October, a blue-chip stock named Dow Chemical (NYSE: DOW) got a 172 rating.
If you have any experience with blue chips, you know that they often move slowly. It's not uncommon to see 5% annual growth.
Well, after posting a high Alpha Score, Dow Chemical shot up 6.8% in 14 days.
Then in November, an energy stock named New Concept Energy (NYSE: GBR) scored 183. After posting a loss for the previous two years, it jumped 19% in eight days.
And this kind of explosive growth continues today with other stocks.
I briefly mentioned a stock essential to the cell phone revolution a few minutes ago. It's flashing a high Alpha Score and signaling "buy."
See, as you may know, the number of mobile devices is going through the roof. When Apple released its iPhone 6 on Sept. 19, it sold 10 million in three days – a new record.
But that's just a small piece of the pie.
According to research firm Statista, by 2016, the number of Americans using smartphones should increase 214% from what it was in 2010.
Well, the company we've found – Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ: SWKS) – makes a key chip found in smartphones. Specifically, it makes a high-tech microchip that helps phones convert and boost radio frequency signals, improving user experience.
Thanks to huge growth in mobile technology… and huge demand for this company's product… its shares have jumped over 50% since the Alpha Score first tagged it.
But this looks like just the beginning.
As the cell phone revolution continues, manufacturers will have no choice but to buy more and more of Skyworks' microchips.
Analysts are even saying that chipmakers are entering a "Golden Age."
Skyworks is taking full advantage. It has no debt to speak of and is growing earnings 10% faster than the industry average.
As a result, it's flashing an Alpha Score of 176 – a score less than 100 other firms on the planet can match.
If I were you, I'd at least look into this stock before the end of the day.
But before you do, I should mention that there are a few other stocks with even higher Alpha Scores and even better prospects.
One's at 184– another is at 185– still another is at 189–
99.99% of stocks never, ever have a score that high. When the Alpha Score has been in this range, it's delivered triple-digit winners several times in the past.
Take Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX). It makes display technology used in smartphones and tablets. It was in the news recently because Google bought a stake in it.
That's now. But when our Alpha Score Indicator flashed "buy" for Himax in April 2013, it was on almost no one's radar.
And why would it be? Himax had disappointed buy-and-hold investors since its IPO in 2006, falling an average of 12.9% every year.
But what Wall Street and Main Street didn't know was that Himax had an Alpha Score of 200 – the highest possible score.
So on April 11, 2013, we fired off an alert saying Himax was a "buy."
Sure enough, those who acted quickly were up 70% in six months. And by the end of January 2014 – not even 10 months later – they were up 136%.
So that's why I suggest you pounce on these new stocks flashing high Alpha Scores.
When you sign up for our research service, I'll rush you their names immediately.
In fact, I'll send you a report with the top-rated Alpha Score stocks in our 10 portfolios. This will give you a wide range of companies to choose from.
They're showing the same kinds of scores as the stocks that broke the top 50 this past year.
When we first tagged BitAuto, it was at 170. Federated National Holding Company was at 189. Those are the exact kinds of scores of the stocks on my list today.
Just know that we keep this list under lock and key.
But if you act now, you'll get it in our brand new research report: The Secret List: The 10 Highest-Rated Stocks to Buy Now.
It's free as part of your subscription to Profitable Trading's most exclusive research service, Alpha Trader.
Here at Profitable Trading, we don't chase after trendy, "hot" ideas or take undue risk. Instead, we try to find investments that will give you money to live on today… and several years down the road.
First Sergeant Rory D. knows what I'm talking about. He's made over $10,000 by following our ideas.
Or Andrew T. of Annapolis, MD, who made over $50,000 in a year.
Perhaps the secret is that we only publish the work of top trading experts. The kind of experts delivering recommendations so good that one Louisiana resident felt compelled to write, "I certainly live a happier life now."
In short, I'm talking about the work of experts like Tom – a nationally-renowned, licensed professional with two decades of experience… and millions of dollars in gains.
In fact, he's helping us become one of the fastest-growing trading publications in America. We have readers in all 50 states and literally dozens of countries across the globe. And they're seeing their bank accounts grow and grow…
For example, Amey P., a newlywed from Roseville, CA who follows our work, wrote in to say that she's made "$6,000 so far starting with an account of $20,000."
Another investor, a man named Linwood from Texas did even better. He says, "In the last six months, I've made about $19,500."
And Richard K. sent us a note from Dallas saying, "I have increased my account by $150,000. Keep the recommendations coming!"
Now, obviously not every Profitable Trading reader is making that kind of money. And there's no guarantee that our ideas will make you money. But our office here in Austin, TX has been flooded with notes from everyday investors delighted with their gains…
As Michael M. from California says, "I am making about $2,000 per month with your suggestions."
"I have made approximately $10,000 on my trades," says Carol L. of Fenwick, MI.
And Susan W. from Santa Cruz says, "I'm generating about $1,000 a month for investment growth for retirement in ten years."
Bottom line: All these gains are happening right now thanks to Tom and our entire team here at Profitable Trading.
Of course, only you can know if Tom's research service – Alpha Trader – is right for you.
But you've seen what the Alpha Score is doing for the few people who know about it.
10%– 20%– 30%– even 83% in a matter of days and weeks. And triple-digit gains in a matter of weeks and months.
And you know the kind of rapid growth that could start happening immediately.
You've also seen the safety and long-term gains it's provided over the past half-century.
But to help you feel 100% comfortable, we'd like to give you more time to make up your mind.
In other words, you don't have to make a final decision on this research service for another 60 days.
Just sign up today, and then, for the next two months, you can analyze Tom's research and see if it suits you.
You can read our upcoming Alpha Alert… email us your questions… even try investing in some of the picks… and still cancel after 60 days.
In that time, you'll receive dozens of picks with sky-high Alpha Scores.
And of course, you'll also receive the two reports I've already mentioned–
Take two months to review everything as your schedule permits.
Then, if there's even one thing you're not happy about before the 60 days are up, just give us a call. We'll happily refund your subscription and say "thanks" for giving it a try.
Sounds fair, right?
Now, Alpha Trader is obviously not a run-of-the-mill $99 service. After all, only a few hundred people will be granted access so that the secret doesn't spread.
Still, it's a lot less than comparable trading services that retail for as much as $3,000 or even $5,000.
The cost for one full year is just $999.
Honestly, to get this level of research for that price is a steal.
In the short time we've been publishing the Alpha Score, it's delivered double-digit gains in a month no less than 33 times – with those gains reaching 83%. So you see why I think it's a bargain at any price.
However, seeing how fruitful the Alpha Score has been to investors – and seeing how many stocks have high scores right now – time is of the essence.
So right now we're going to slash the price.
Instead of paying the full $999, it will cost you A LOT less.
But that's not all. We're also going to award you with some additional stock picks we've never, EVER given away before…
As soon as you start your trial subscription, you'll receive instant access to three more of our top recently published research reports for no extra cost.
Bonus Report #1: 5 Alpha Stocks Yielding up to 5.6%: This premium report reveals an incredible opportunity.
See, too many income investors believe that if a stock has a high yield, it can't grow quickly.
But Tom discovered that you can apply the Alpha Scoring system and figure out which high-yielders are likely to deliver quick gains.
For example, one Alpha Score pick yielded 4.5% – more than twice the yield of your typical Dow stock. Most high-yield stocks don't experience fast growth. But like clockwork, after it triggered an Alpha Alert, it jumped 24% in less than six months.
In fact, right now, the Alpha Scoring system is flashing "buy" on five stocks yielding as high as 5.6%. You'll get the names and tickers of all of them in this exclusive research report.
Bonus Report #2: The 5 Guru Stocks Signaling "Buy": If you're interested in the chance to invest in fast-moving stocks that Buffett and other billionaires are buying, this research report is for you.
We ran the picks found in Warren Buffett's, George Soros' and other billionaires' holding companies, and found several that are immediate "buys."
While nothing is guaranteed, these "guru" picks have soared as much as 109% in a year. But with Alpha Scores as high as 170, they could soar even higher.
You'll get all their names in this brand new report.
Bonus Report #3: The Top 10 Blue Chips in the S&P 500: For this one-of-a-kind report, we ran all the blue-chip stocks through the Alpha Score system and found out which have the most potential.
One is up 34% in seven months…
Another is up 26% in four months with no signs of slowing.
You'll get the top 10 blue-chip stocks flashing buy in this third bonus report.
With these reports added onto what you're already getting, you should be completely prepared no matter what your investment style is. Whether you're ultra-conservative, ultra-aggressive, or right in the middle, you'll have just what you're looking for.
As I said, the regular price for this service is $999.
But if you sign up today, it's all yours for 50% off.
In other words, instead of paying $999 for a one-year subscription, you'll get everything for just $499.
Even better, if you sign up for two years, the discount is even steeper.
The regular price for two years of service is $1,998. But right now you can get it for just $799, which is 60% off the list price.
Your risk-free subscription to Alpha Trader includes:
And you'll also receive these three special reports if you sign up for two years…
5 Alpha Stocks Yielding up to 5.6%
The 5 Guru Stocks Signaling “Buy”
The Top 10 Blue Chips in the S&P 500
Bear in mind: Within two weeks of publishing the Alpha Score, one stock had already turned $1,000 into $1,280. And in less than a month, another had turned a $500 investment into $915.
So even a tiny investment in one of Tom's picks could more than cover the cost of your subscription after just a few weeks.
If you're the least bit interested in any of Tom's work, I suggest you sign up today.
Remember, you'll only be able to join Alpha Trader in the next few days… and I can't guarantee that we'll ever open up the membership ranks again.
So I urge you – and I can't stress this enough – if you're interested in seeing exactly how the Alpha Score works… and in getting the secret list of the 10 highest-rated Alpha Score stocks right now… don't wait to sign up.
As we speak, stocks are scoring as high as 189.
Since we first unleashed the Alpha Score in October, it's uncovered gains of 19% in a week… 118% gains in three months… and 266% gains in less than a year.
Furthermore, the triggers behind it have been academically proven to beat the market going back to 1926… and protect investors from catastrophic market crashes.

I look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. Remember, the only one way to get the secret list of high-scoring stocks and full details on the Alpha Score system is by starting a no-risk subscription today. But you'll have to hurry. Enrollment closes soon, so don't miss this opportunity.
