2012 WAS DISMAL
OUR TOP PICKS PROFITS AVERAGED
A minor disappointment for
Michael Lombardi because
his top picks averaged
221.48% profit in 2009!
Dear Profit Seeker,
In 2012, our top stocks gained an average profit of only 138.90% each.
So, you might ask, what am I disappointed about?
I’m frustrated because our top picks for 2009 posted an average profit of 221.48%.
I know. 2009, 2010 and 2011 were easy years to make money in stocks. We called the bottom of the market in March, 2009, jumped in with both feet, and made some great stock picks.
But maybe I should just grow up. In 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 18.8%. Our stock picks that year rose 221.48%, so you can say we beat the market by 12 times!
For 2012, the market was up about 6% and our top picks have averaged a profit of 138.90%. I guess you can say we beat the market by 23 times this year. Heck, if we look at the general market, we actually clobbered it in 2012.
Here’s a valuable secret that brought us comfort and profit over the past months…
Gold Prices Flat in 2012,
This Stock Took Off
2012 was a terrible year for mining stocks…one of the worst years in a decade. But I fell in love with a tiny Canadian gold miner by the name of Belo Sun Mining Corporation.
I recommended Belo stock at $0.96 a share in late December of 2011 for several reasons, nonetheless of which was the impressive management team the company was able to put together. (Often, for small companies like this, getting top-rate managers is a difficult task.)
In September of 2012, the company announced a bought deal for $50 million and by the end of November, 2012, the stock hit $1.75—a gain of 82.29%.
Of our top 19 picks, Belo was our smallest gainer in 2012. So why even mention an 82.29% winner?
Our top stock in 2012 was a 218.77% profit blockbuster. For 2013, I want a pick that returns over 300%!
Well, my guess is you’d welcome a “below average” 82.29% winner into your portfolio faster than you can say, “Yeah, double my money!”
Well, that’s my point. You could double your money even in the trickiest stock market in decades. But you must walk off the well-beaten path to do it, not necessarily in a cheap gold stock, but with stocks you might not otherwise ever consider.
Stocks you might never consider, such as a cheap junior gold stock, are the ones that could double your money in 2013.

2012 was another flat year for stocks. But positions we took in 2012 or earlier years were either were closed out or reached price highs in 2012 which resulted in the gains below. In all, our top 19 picks gained an average of 138.90%. Here they are:

2011 was a flat year for stocks. The average profit for our top 19 positions in 2011 came in at 177.99%. Here they are:

How well are you geared up to find hidden “cheap gold” gems on your own?
Net Spend Holding Inc. EVER HEAR OF IT? DIDN’T THINK SO.
NetSpend Holdings Inc. isn’t exactly a company name that rings bells or ignites distinction. Yet, the company has 484 employs and is headquartered smack-dab in the capital of Texas. The company provides re-loadable prepaid debt and payroll cards. And it posted a gain of 135.45% from our purchase price in 2011 to its 52-week high in 2012.
GOOD LUCK INVESTING
ON YOUR OWN IN 2013
No matter how good you are at researching and picking stocks, you probably would not have found our cheap gold stock on your own. But there’s absolutely no way you’d find our 218.77% pharmaceutical company winner on your own.
It’s a small company.
We recommended this stock at $37.50 in late 2010. By October 2012 it hit $119.54 for a profit of 218.77%.
GROWTH PUSHES THIS STOCK HIGHER
Cirrus Logic, Inc. is a supplier of high-precision analog and digital signal processing components for audio and energy markets; with more than 1,000 patents, 700 products and more than 2,500 end customers globally.
We recommended the stock at $14.40 in June of 2011 after the company announced a 46% increase in its most recent quarterly revenue. And the news just got better from there. On July 30, 2012, the company reported its quarterly revenue jumped another 70%, hitting $99 million!
By September 2012, the stock reached a 52-week high of $45.49—giving those investors who headed our advice a gain of 215.90%!
But, for my service to be of any value to you, you must be able to muster up a little investment courage. If you’re not willing to do that, let me offer your place to someone else.
CAN YOU BE A MORE
No, no, not the kind of adrenalin-charged courage that puts you into high-risk situations. I’m talking about getting up just enough courage to go against the crowd. You can do that, can’t you?
That’s key, you know... you can never be first to the best investments by following the crowd. So, you must break away.
Did you know that I was 18 years old when I published my first investment newsletter? I’ve learned quite a bit about making money since then.
But I knew as a teenager that successful investing was about getting to the best opportunities first. That way, by the time others catch on, you’ve gotten all the growth and profits.
Simple. Get there first and you end up buying low and selling high all the time. Others do the opposite and you profit off their mistakes.
But you can’t get there first if you follow the crowd. Yet, in today’s tricky investment environment, you can’t get to the best investments first on your own, either.
Catch-22? Not for you. You’re one of the fortunate ones.

HOW WE ESCAPED THE 2008 CARNAGE
Ever wonder why TV talking heads... financial newspapers and bulletins... and practically every investor under the sun were all blindsided by the carnage that took place on Wall Street during the fourth quarter of 2008?
We escaped the 2008 carnage because I saw the mess coming years ago... on April 8, 2004, actually. It’s documented.
On April 8, 2004, the Fed cut interest rates to a 40-year low. Wall Street loved the news. I didn’t. Later that same day, I told my readers in a special e-mail bulletin:
“The Fed has made borrowing as easy as possible, resulting in a huge appetite for loans and mortgages. We are nearing a debt crisis.”
“We will wish Greenspan never brought rates down so low as to entice so many consumers to have such big mortgages.”
Before we fast forward to what I see ahead, here’s a condensed recap of how the credit crisis developed, and what I said (word for word) as events unfolded.
May 27, 2005. No one’s talking about stocks... conservation is dominated by real estate. I told my readers...
“Looking around today, it would be very difficult to find people who believe that one day it could be out of vogue to own real estate because properties would be such a bad investment. Those investors who believe a dark day will never come for the property market are just fooling themselves.”
June 2, 2005. Google is seen as way too expensive at $288. I told my readers...
“Buy Google at $288. The stock will go higher. Most investors in Google, surprisingly, are retail investors. And that’s why the stock can go higher — because only 20% of the stock is owned by institutions. If institutions jump in and buy Google, the stock will certainly move higher.”
November 5, 2007. Google hits $700. Novice investors continue to chase the runaway winner. I saw it was time for something else and told my readers...
“Sell Google at $700 and put the proceeds into gold-related investments.” (Google is about $600 today, gold at over $1,600.)
November 29, 2007. The DOW, S&P, and other major indices roar to the best two-day stretch since 2002. No official U.S. recession yet. But I told my readers...
“I’m looking at the market rally of the past two days as a classic stock market bear trap. As the economy gets closer to contraction, 2008 will likely be a most challenging economic year for America.”
January 21, 2008. Stocks are still doing fine. Recession? Bear market? Market crash? Not on anyone’s lips. I told my readers...
“Prepare for the worst economic period ahead we have seen in years. Home prices have been declining since 2006 and now the stock market is about to follow suit.”
THEN CAME 2009 AND...
We saw governments worldwide bail out “too big to fail” corporations and entire industries...
We saw men and women with families lose their jobs, kissing their dreams goodbye, letting their aspirations for themselves and their children sink out of sight into an abyss...
In March of 2009 the stock market hit a twelve year low and investors were terrified. I saw it as a great buying opportunity. On March 9, 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit an intraday low of 6,440. I turned big-time bullish at that point.
March 12, 2009. Here’s what I said:
“After being involved with stocks for almost 30 years, and after studying the markets for more years than I care to admit…we may have the makings of a classical bear market rally that is not only tradable, but that could also deliver some great stock profits. A rally in the confines of a big picture bear market can last weeks, if not months.”
(The bear market rally I was talking about above lasted right through 2012 and we rode it all the way!)
SAFETY IN NUMBERS IN 2010
By July of 2010 the stock market rally that started in March 2009 was starting to run out of steam. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell to 9,614 in early July, 2010.
While most stock markets and investors had given up on the rally, I believed it had plenty of life left. My job became keeping my readers invested in stocks. And that’s exactly what I did for the remainder of 2010:

The guru editors of Lombardi Financial advisory newsletters showed readers how they could double their money during the mess of 2008. Average profit for our top 19 stocks was 136.39% at their close out price of 52-week high in 2008, ranging from 92.86% to 445.45%. Here’s the breakdown:

July 5, 2010. Stocks in trouble. I told my readers…
“Stock prices have entered attractive price/earnings multiples. Stock dividends, related to interest rates, are attractive. Corporate earnings have been strong. Corporate balance sheets have been cleaned up. There is a lot of money on the sidelines, ready to enter this market…ahead lies an unprecedented buying opportunity for stocks…I've been suggesting the shares of quality gold exploration and development companies…The shares of these companies have fared well. I believe they will continue to be the best place to park cash in the two- to three-year period ahead.”
The rest is history. I kept my readers in stocks right through 2011...with our top stocks averaging a profit of 177.99% each!
And in 2012, our top picks reached average gains of 138.90%! We beat the market 23 times over!
Don’t you deserve it to yourself so see how we’ll more than double money again in 2013?
