Avatar

on

This month, Kickstarter is encouraging creators to launch one-week campaigns? We’ll talk the whys, the hows and whether the #Allin1 initiative is right for you.


Highlights of this Session Include:

Why I think Kickstarter has launched the Allin1 initiative, and how it fits into an overall focus for Kickstarter this year.
Kickstarter’s advice to Creator’s launching Allin1 Projects.
4 Killer ideas for great allin1 projects for comic book creators.
Plus: Why Allin1 isn’t right for everyone.


Today’s Session is brought to you by

Need a reliable printer for your next comic book or graphic novel print run? Then you need to unleash the Kraken. Head to ComixLaunch.com/Kraken for 5% off your entire first order.

Last year, ComixTribe spent nearly $85,000 on printing.

While we rely on a number of printers to get our books to market, one printer I can strongly recommend is KrakenPrint

Our friends Jacob Way and Sam Amborn at Kraken Print offer:

  • Competitive pricing.
    Great customer service, especially for your first offset print run.
    Monthly storage if you do not want to store hundreds or thousands of books at home.
    Distribution options, including breaking down orders and shipping direct to Diamond or comic stores at their specially negotiated discounted rates on shipping.
  • And NOW they even offer Kickstarter fulfillment!
  • Kraken will pick, pack, and ship out orders for your backers.

If you want to unleash the Kraken, go to comixlaunch.com/kraken, mention the ComixLaunch podcast, and they’re going to knock 5% off your first print run…and they’re going to hook us up with a 5% credit.

It’s a classic win/win/win/win – You get a great price on printing, your backers get a beautiful offset printed book, you help the podcast out, and Kraken gets your business.

That’s comixlaunch.com/kraken for 5% off your entire first print run.


ComixLauncher

It’s time for today’s ComixLauncher.
A ComixLauncher is a short, actionable activity you can do immediately after listening to the show. They’re all activities I’ve done myself, and will get you one step closer to a successful ComixLaunch. They’ll transform this Podcast from a passive, lean back activity centered around Tyler James, into an active, lean-forward activity centered around YOU and your projects.

I Dare You to Ignore This Trend

As I told you on Tuesday, I like to set goals in life. Big and crazy ones.

For example, a few weeks ago, I set the goal to run every street in downtown Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee.

That’s 2,957.06 miles of running. (Told you I’m crazy.)

Why am I bringing this up now?

Well, as you’ll see in a moment, it has to do with the latest emerging market trend…

And it has to do with your investment goals.

So let’s get to it…

A Journey of a (Few) Thousand Miles

Perhaps you’ve heard the Chinese proverb, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The same thing goes for my running journey of a few thousand miles.

But to be honest, it’s hard for me to picture reaching my goal. Especially when I look at a map and count up what it’s going to take.

All the red in this chart shows every road I still have to run.

And the tiny handful of green spots represent the roads I’ve run so far.

(Full disclosure: I decided to run every street before I knew how many miles it would entail. So consider me not just crazy, but a little impulsive! But I digress.)

I’m barely 1% of the way to my goal. But I’m not going to quit.

And based on all the emails my readers shared with me over the past week or so, when it comes to reaching your investment and retirement goals, you’re not going to quit either…

Keeping At It

I get it. You feel like you still have so far to go.

Plus, the clock is ticking, so it can feel like the pressure is on.

But you know that you can’t quit. Which brings me to today…

Remember, every big accomplishment starts with taking a small step.

And the fact that you took action — including deciding to read Trend Trader Daily — is a small but meaningful step!

If you keep at it, I know you can accomplish your investment goals, and even exceed them.

Especially if you focus on the right trends.

Like semiconductors…

Down, Down, Everywhere — Except…

Yesterday, the markets suffered their single biggest drop in four months, as coronavirus cases spiked globally, and hopes for additional stimulus evaporated.

Against such a backdrop, most investors forget about seeking opportunity. Instead, they seek shelter.

But don’t join them! Why? Because when a similar type of fear and paranoia gripped the markets in March and April, my fearless readers were presented with a major investment opportunity…

An opportunity to leapfrog closer to their investing goals by almost doubling their money.

And all they had to do was invest in semiconductor stocks.

Keep in mind: I’m not sharing this now to rub it in your face.

To the contrary, I’m sharing it because, today, the investment set-up is even better.

Let me explain…

Buy the Chip Dip (Again)

As I wrote earlier this year, without semiconductors, the most important tech innovations of the future literally can’t happen.

I’m talking about major trends like:

  • Artificial Intelligence, which is expected to be worth almost $120 billion by 2025.
  • The Internet of Things, which is already a $200 billion industry.
  • Driverless cars… 5G networks… and the list goes on and on.

Long story short — because of these trends, annual semiconductor sales are expected to top one trillion units, year-in and year-out.

That’s how I know the slowdown in March promised to be a blip in the long-term growth trend.

Or as I wrote back then, “Covid-19 might impact how we work and live in the future… But one thing it won’t change is our demand for chips.”

As such, this presented a tremendous buying opportunity.

And not just based on the price performance of the iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX) that you saw above…

But based on actual market fundamentals…

I Dare You to Ignore This Trend

To understand what I mean, consider the latest analysis from chip-market insiders:

  • The pure-play foundry market, which makes up to 90% of integrated chips, is on pace for its strongest growth since 2014, according to IC Insights.
  • And global silicon wafer shipments, which are the fundamental building material for chips, are on track for recovery this year and a record high in 2022, according to SEMI.

Here’s the key: it turns out that Covid-19 is actually boosting demand for chips.

Tomorrow, I’ll share more details on why this is so, and more importantly, I’ll share the single market indicator that reveals which specific chip stocks are all but guaranteed to blast off.

And that’s regardless of who wins this election, or how bad the third wave of Covid-19 gets.

I dare you to ignore this trend.

Don’t miss out on the profit opportunity this time!

Keep an eye on your inbox.

The Perfect Investment

Avatar

Published

on

Finding winning investments is tough. It’s true.

But just for a moment, imagine the perfect investment. An investment where:

  • You’re guaranteed to get in at the lowest price.
  • You can invest for as little as $100.
  • And that one tiny investment gave you a shot at earning a major windfall.

Furthermore, once you’d invested, you wouldn’t need to lose any sleep over it — because its value wouldn’t bounce up and down like a rollercoaster.

Sounds perfect, right? Too good to be true?

Surprisingly, it exists.

Let me introduce you to it.

Introducing: The Perfect Investment

If you haven’t already guessed, let me reveal this perfect investment:

Private startups!

For about 85 years, startup investing in the U.S. was legally off-limits to all but the wealthiest citizens.

But thanks to a new set of laws, now everyone can invest in them, including you.

Let me show you why startups can be the perfect investment.

The 3 Main Benefits of Startup Investing

Sure, investing in startups can be incredibly exciting.

After all, you might be investing in the next Biogen, the next Facebook, or the next Uber…

World-changing companies that could impact billions of peoples’ health or relationships, or disrupt enormous, age-old sectors like transportation.

But there are other key benefits as well:

  1. Ground-Floor Entry Price

First of all, with startups, you’re getting in at the lowest possible entry price.

There’s no need to worry about “timing” your trade, or overpaying for your shares.

You’re getting in at the ground floor, when the company’s stock price is at rock-bottom.

  1. Massive Upside with Little Upfront Capital

When a startup is successful, even a tiny upfront investment can balloon into a fortune.

For example:

  • Our friend and colleague Howard Lindzon made 400x his money by investing in Uber back when it was an early-stage private startup. That’s enough to turn every $5,000 he invested into $2 million.
  • Facebook’s first private investor made about 2,000x his money. That’s enough to turn every $5,000 into $10 million. Can you imagine?
  • And even when you factor in the winners and the losers, over the past 20 years, early-stage startups have returned an average of 55% per year. At 55% per year, in 20 years, you could turn a $500 investment into more than $3.2 million.
  1. Sleep Well at Night

Investing in the stock market can be like riding a terrifying rollercoaster.

You’re up, you’re down, you’re up, you’re down.

That’s a recipe for losing sleep — and potentially, losing a lot of money.

But after investing in a startup, you simply wait for it to be acquired or go public.

It’s a simple, fool-proof, sleep-well-at-night investment.

So What’s the Catch?

But as you know, when it comes to investing, there’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Even with a perfect investment like a startup, there are drawbacks.

So tomorrow, Wayne will share those drawbacks with you…

And then he’ll start to share details about how to overcome them.

So stay tuned…

Happy Investing

We all know Mondays can suck. In life, and definitely in the markets.

I mean, two Mondays ago, I got my third flat tire this year. But should I give up driving? Heck, no!

Then, yesterday, the major stock indexes dropped by almost 2%. That’s the 25th time this year we’ve experienced such a sudden sell-off.

But should we give up on investing on Mondays? You guessed it — heck, no!

You see, in the midst of so much bad news and “suckiness” lie tremendous financial opportunities. And that’s why I decided to launch Trend Trader Daily:

To make sure you never miss out on another opportunity!

In a moment, I’ll show you exactly what I mean, and I’ll reveal the newest trend that could put big gains in your pocket. (Hint: it has nothing to do with the upcoming elections.)

But first, I have a question for you…

“Tell Me About Yourself”

In the Trend Trader Daily welcome email I sent you last week, I asked you to share a bit about yourself.

For example — what your investing goals are, what you dream about, and what keeps you up at night.

Your responses were amazing, and they were consistent:

  • Countless people talked about needing to build up their retirement accounts, helping family members in need, and aiming to give more to charity.
  • Others are worrying about their financial security in the wake of Covid-19.
  • And almost everyone said they need to learn more about profiting from the markets.

But here’s what truly surprised me…

Your Optimism!

In spite of everything you could have complained about, nearly every response did the exact opposite:

It talked about your optimism — your belief that good things (and big trading gains!) were right around the corner.

For example:

“Looking forward to the trend trader!! Always interested in your input and research. I am 55 and have 10 years of work left. I am a dental specialist and have a significant nest egg built up over the past 25 years of practice. I could retire now but would like to increase my holdings 4-5 X and really enjoy retirement in style. So any advise would greatly be appreciated! My broker has done ok but I would like to trade the micro caps with a portion and see how I can augment my returns. Thanks for all the great info and research.”

-Michael

“Thank you! I am looking to make my first investment in the next 2 days. It’s almost overwhelming, but exciting. I am afraid I won’t know what to do after I get my trading account set up.  I will have to figure it out. I am pretty much on my own with this as I don’t want to have anyone crush this dream, this opportunity, my happiness.” 

-Ruby

“I am excited to be in your programme, particularly as you said it was dealing in stocks… nice to meet you and I hope that I can contact you in the near future to tell you that I am one of your “winners”.

-Brenda

Michael, Ruby, Brenda, and everyone else who responded — I applaud you for your optimism!

And I’d like to respond by asking everyone reading this another question:

What’s your biggest stock market gain to date?

In percentage terms or dollar terms, and how long did it take for you to earn it?

Hit reply and let me know!

And now that you’ve shared that information, let me explain why I asked for it…

Setting Goals

I like to set big goals in life.

(In fact, in my column for you this Thursday, I’ll reveal the newest and perhaps craziest one I’ve ever set… so stay tuned for that.)

But I also like to set goals for you, and for all my readers.

And the reason I asked about your biggest stock market gain is so I can aim to beat it!

But before I tell you how I aim to do that, let me prove to you I can do it — by showing you some of the gains that have already been made, this year, by my readers…

The Trend is Our Friend

The markets change every day, and new investment trends emerge.

One of those trends hit unexpectedly at the beginning of this year…

That’s when Covid-19 became a real threat — and for a handful of biotech companies that could provide testing and treatment options, a real opportunity.

I spotted this trend early and identified seven small companies that stood to benefit the most.

The rest is history…

All seven started soaring in price almost immediately:

  • Within 30 days, readers were locking in gains of 105% in GenMark Diagnostics (GNMK), and 116% in Vaxart (VXRT).
  • Within 60 days, readers were locking in gains of 243% in Novavax (NVAX).
  • And within 120 days, readers were locking in gains of 226% in Inovio Pharmaceuticals (INO) and 640% in Altimmune (ALT).

And for investors that held onto all their shares of Novavax until my final sell alert… they took home a staggering profit of 949.8% in just 136 days.

That’s a ten-bagger in just a few months.

And mind you, this wasn’t some fluke related to Covid-19.

Over the last twenty years, small biotech stocks have helped me routinely deliver triple-digit profits in rapid succession — including biotechs that were unrelated to Covid.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

Over the next few weeks, I’ve decided to share the details about how I identify winning trades like this.

Because more gains are coming — and this time, you should be among the group of beneficiaries.

I’m going to tell you about my proprietary system for identifying breakthrough biotech companies…

And then I’ll explain how to invest in them at the perfect time for big, fast gains.

So keep your eyes on your inbox!
