Ian Wyatt has been actively investing in stocks for more than 20 years. He turned that passion into a multi-million dollar Internet business when he founded Wyatt Investment Research in 2001. Ian’s goal is to help investors beat the market by finding great investments that are attractively priced.
He knows that wealthy investors tend to invest differently. They don’t make ridiculous, high risk, high reward bets. They don’t feel the need to buy and sell frequently. Instead, they protect their wealth by investing in great stocks when they are cheap. When they do speculate, they do so intelligently, without letting emotion enter into the equation.
Finding value is Ian’s investment focus. He invests in businesses with sustainable and large cash flows ONLY at the right price. He never overpays for an investment, and loves finding companies that are led by executives whose interests are aligned with shareholders.
Ian believes that the best person to manage your money is YOU. Armed with the ideas from the Wyatt Investment Research team of advisers, you can beat the market and achieve your investment objectives.
In February of 2009 – just one month before the historic low for the stock market - Ian launched the Million Dollar Portfolio with $100,000 of his personal savings. Ian has been bullish on America’s economic recovery every since then, and has encouraged his subscribers to focus on buying good companies at a great price.
His goal was simple when he launched the Million Dollar Portfolio: to grow his nest egg to $1,000,000. Doing so would help secure the financial future of his kids and wife. In less than six years, the portfolio has grown in value to $348,000.
In addition to leading the Million Dollar Portfolio, Ian contributes to our High Yield Wealth and Personal Wealth Advisor investment services.
Stephen Mauzy is advisor and contributing editor at High Yield Wealth, a research advisory service dedicated to finding the best income, dividend-growth, and value opportunities.
Stephen brings a wealth of knowledge and investing experience to the table. He is a CFA charter holder who has been unearthing, analyzing, and writing about income opportunities for the past 25 years. Stephen's expertise and insight has been featured on CNBC, Fox Business News, Barron's, Bankrate.com, CFA Magazine, and other financial media outlets.
Stephen's modus is to stay ahead of the crowd (and to go against it when necessary). Today, dividend investing has become ‘vogue.' But for years, Stephen has been advising investors to buy dividend and income investments, and hold them as long as the income stream continues to rise. His core belief centers on investor income: Your cash flow matters most. If you’re not getting paid, then you’re speculating.
Stephen's focus on income lead to his discovery of the “9th Wonder of the World” – the incredible wealth-generating potential of dividend-growth stocks. Dividend growth invariable leads to share-price appreciation. Investing in reliable dividend-growth stocks and holding them for years is the most effective wealth-generating strategy. The beauty of this strategy is that any disciplined investor can apply it.
Stephen has built a diversified high-yield portfolio of income investments: dividend growers; preferred stocks; blue-chip dividend stocks; and high-yield tax-advantaged securities, including MLPs, REITs, BDCs, and royalty trusts. Recent winners include Omega Healthcare Partners (130% total return), Altria Group (118%), Total SA (66%), and Dr Pepper Snapple (66%)
Advisor Andy Crowder is our options guru at Wyatt Investment Research. Andy started his investing career at Oppenheimer & Co. on Wall Street, he learned the tricks used by professional traders to consistently earn profits. Today, he teaches those strategies to active investors who want to earn a piece of the vast amount of wealth being created in the financial markets.
Andy is a numbers guy... a quant. Earnings, valuations, CNBC interviews, and the Fed have no influence on his trading. In fact, Andy trades with no emotion whatsoever. Even when news and events send the market up or down, Andy only makes a move if the statistics look good.
In other words, he trades outside of the herd, not with or against them. He waits for opportunities to come to him. If the upside and probability of success are there, he takes it. He realizes that the market is not some efficient, unbeatable machine. Instead, it’s a dynamic mix of emotion-driven participants who under extreme circumstances tend to act in very predictable ways.
Andy understands that markets go up – but they also go down and sideways. Fortunately, there’s money to be made no matter which way the wind blows. Using the same strategies of Wall Street best traders, Andy aims to make money in any type of market.
Most traders use options to speculate on the market. They aim to hit homeruns, and earn profits of 500%, 1,000% or even more. But these inevitably fail, and lead to a string of big losses.
Andy leads our Options Advantage and High Yield Trader advisory services.
