What Do North Korea, WannaCry And Bitcoins All Have In Common?

It's official North Korea was behind the massive WannaCry cyrberattack.

North Korea behind the virus.

Victims received ransom demands, paying did not unlock their computers. Victims were told to pay in Bitcoin (untraceable).

Companies are now buying Bitcoins in order to hedge themselves against the next cyberattack.

What percentage of bitcoin buying is investment oriented versus hedging?

Ok companies are buying Bitcoin as a hedge, but what can they do to protect themselves in the mean time?

Easy. Just do this.

The Insider Buying Report..Finding Small Companies Before They Become Big Winners

Who Is A Bigger Threat To Internet Advertising Industry Than Google And Facebook?

 "the tech duopoly’s dominance threatens the marketplace of ideas"

 In 2017 Google and Facebook have accounted for 84% of all digital advertising outside China, including 96% of its growth, according to an industry forecast this month from Zenith, Magna and GroupM.

This is scary.

Google is used for nearly 90% of online searches in the U.S. A Pew survey this summer found that the four most popular social-media sites for getting news are Facebook, YouTube (owned by Google), Twitter (which has a Google partnership), and Instagram (owned by Facebook). No more than 5% of Americans use another social-media platform to get news.

Who has even greater influence than Facebook and Google?...your Internet provider.

They control the "pipe" to your device. They are the ultimate gatekeeper and would have even more control over what ads and news you see.

France Has A Problem With Facebook And Their Whatsapp Privacy

When you understand that EVERY application on your phone can see every other app, your contacts and activity (calls, texts, pics, location, email, messages) of your phone, you will be more careful of which "free" apps you download.

France’s data privacy watchdog may fine messaging app WhatsApp if it does not comply with an order to bring its sharing of user data with parent company Facebook (FB.O) into line with French privacy law.

“The only way to refuse the data transfer for “business intelligence” purpose is to uninstall the application,” the CNIL said in a statement.

Ride Hailing Servies Like Uber Are Disrupting Other Businesses

How do ride hailing services impact parking rental real estate?

Fewer people are parking cars at airports, using taxis or renting cars, according to a recent report from the National Academies Press.

Those trend lines are hurting airports, which depend on fees from parking lots, rental car companies and taxis as their biggest source of revenue other than the fees paid by the airlines. The money they currently collect from ride-hailing services do not compensate for the lower revenues from the other sources.

The Federal Aviation Administration reported in November that the $4 billion in fees collected last year for parking and ground transportation represented nearly 42 percent of the $9.6 billion in airport revenue from sources other than airline fees.

The revenue from parking is this big.
The combination far exceeded the fees the airports collected from food and beverage outlets, stores and hotels

Will this impact airport municipal bond ratings?

How could airports utilize that vacant space?

Great Insider Buying Books

 If you're serious about learning how and why investing using insider buying as an indicator can deliver above average performance, here are two great insider buying books

From George Muzea's "The Vital Few Versus The Trivial Many"

 Look for the "Catalytic Insider", otherwise known as "Stud Insiders" or "Smart Insiders".

Anytime you see an insider buying a stock that is already in an uptrend, the insider buying is "catalytic" in nature.

There is nothing better than having one or more insiders buying into a stock that is in an uptrend and already has institutional sponsorship.

The Catalytic Insider is actually the momentum investor's best friend.

Another great read for insider buying is Jesse Stine's "Insider Buy Superstocks".

Jesse's winning formula was uncovering undiscovered stocks fueled by insider buying.

Insiders often buy because of a catalyst that may not appear for several quarters.

It's difficult to go wrong when following the insiders.

At the Insider Buying Report, every day we scan the insider filings and search for a company that has either breakthrough technology or part of a major investing wave.

We are looking for small companies hidden from Wall Street whose insiders are doing the talking with their wallet. Nothing signifies optimism more than an executive who is in the know buying their stock in the open market.

Internet Over Power Lines Is Coming

Broadband over Powerlines.

AT&T Inc has started trials in Georgia state and a non-U.S. location to deliver high-speed internet over power lines.

AT&T aims to eventually deliver speeds faster than the 1 gigabit per second consumers can currently get through fiber internet service using high-frequency airwaves that travel along power lines.

“Potentially, it can be a really big deal,” said Roger Entner, an analyst at Recon Analytics. “You need the power company to play ball with you. That’s the downside.”

Follow The Money

We have seen the best written press releases from small companies. In a press release a company can say just about anything as long as they post that "Forward looking Statement" caveat. Master writers find ways to lure unsuspecting investors with hot top words.

The hot topic words this month are bitcoin, cryptocurrency, litecoin and etherum. The companies find any way to get one of these words in their press release.

The one thing that is authentic and speaks for itself though?..insider buying. Anytime an insider buys shares in the open market they are issuing a different kind of press release. 

When an insider or insiders buy stock in their own company, we listen.

Come see why as of today, the IBR Portfolio is up 170% for the 4th Qtr.

Want To Short Bitcoin?

Want to short bitcoin?

Interactive Brokers is now allowing it.

A major online broker, Interactive Brokers Group Inc., says it will allow investors to bet against, or short, bitcoin, on its trading platform, shifting an earlier stance to only provide trading access to customers to bitcoin futures making outright long investments in the bubblicious cryptocurrency.

“The introduction of short sales was necessitated by the large premium of the January futures contract over the price at which Bitcoin trades on the physical venues,” said Chairman of Interactive Brokers LLC Thomas Peterffy. (source)

Insider Buying..Outperforming The Market For Years

 At Insider Buying Report, we don't make this stuff up. Following insider buying has proven to outperform the general market for many years.

We specialize in following insider buying in nanocaps and microcaps.

Tweedy Browne's "What Has Worked in Investing" report is practically an investment bible, put together by the asset manager to show clients the findings that have shaped its investment process over the years.

All of the studies show a similar result; the investment returns on stocks purchased after insiders’ buying are vastly superior to the rest of the market.

For example, in the first study, which looked at the returns on equities during 1958, insider stocks gained 49.6% compared to the market return of 29.7%.

The second study looked at returns between 1961 and 1965. During this period, insider stocks returned 21.2%, and the market returned 9.5%. Even though the third study considered the same period, results were even more impressive. This particular study looked at equity returns after insiders’ purchases between 1960 and 1965 and found an insider return of 24.3% compared to the market return of 6.1%.

The final study was the only one conducted after 1965 and looked at the returns on insider stocks between 1974 and 1976. Still, despite the different period, the results were the same. Insider stocks returned 45.8% over the period studied compared to the market return of 15.3%. (source)

 Even though these findings are somewhat out of date, the trend is clear. Insider buying is an unyielding signal for investors.   You can download a copy of the report Here

The Insider Buying Report Has Officially Launched

Having invested publicly and privately in nanocap companies with either breakthrough technology or part of a major investing wave for over 30 years, we have a pretty good idea of what companies have wealth changing potential.

It all starts with the insiders, they know more than the public...so why not follow them?

At the Insider Buying Report we scan ALL insider buying. We then have specific criteria we look for. We look for specific type of buying and from specific people. Not all insider buying is created equal, and we know that.

We then do homework to see if the company has either breakthrough technology or if they could be part of a major investing trend.

After getting feedback from certain members, we quietly launched.

Our first featured company was Digital Power (DPW) at .60 in September. We wanted to find a way to invest in the bitcoin and cryptocurrency wave. We saw the large insider buying in DPW and did some digging. We determined their subsidiary Coolisys could be the equipment provider to this industry.

While nanocaps have considerable risk, investing at the same time as insiders can sometimes reduce that risk.

We feature small companies with insider buying.
