MoneyTalks Person of the Year

Some people talk and some people do – and then there are those who “do” so much for us all at great personal cost. This year’s honouree would never be consider for “Person of the Year” by the Canadian Press or other mainstream outlets because of his straightforward stand that “access to a waiting list does not constitute access to healthcare” challenges the status quo healthcare delivery in Canada.

This Could Be The Best Christmas Gift Ever

The sounds of Christmas – carols being sung, maybe the crackling of a log on the fire and the oh so familiar – “not another sweater” “oh, great a tie” – “a gift certificate…how did you know.”

We’ve all be down that long, lonely road in search of the perfect Christmas gift. And if you are anything like me – let’s just say we’ve come up short.

The Good News

I’ve got an idea that could put you in the Gift Givers Hall of Fame  – but first a little background. If you had bought just a hundred shares of any of the stocks recommended at last year’s World Outlook Financial Conference for a loved one – spouse, son, daughter, niece, nephew, friend –  look at what would have happened.

We recommended Viemed Healthcare at $2.41 at the WOFC – today it trades at $5.87…up 143%.

Photon Control Inc – recommended at .62 cents at the WOFC  – today .98 …up 58%

Boyd Group – recommended at the WOFC at $61– today $118…up 93% – (Boyd was first recommended at under $20 at the 2013 Outlook Conference, so anyone you bought that for at the time probably has a statue of you in their living room.)

Sylogist – recommended at the WOFC at $8.60 – today $13.25… up 54%

Parex Resources – recommended at the WOFC at $18.27– today $28.67 – up 56%

In case you haven’t experienced it yourself. If you want to see someone’s face light up – give them 100 shares of a stock and look at their expression when it goes up 20%, 30%, 50%…over 100%.  It beats the old gift certificate every time.  Better yet, for some people the stock market becomes a new hobby.

And by the way, there were a lot more winners recommended at last year’s World Outlook Financial Conference. In fact, I can’t think of a single stock recommendation that didn’t go up.

The official WOFC Small Cap Portfolio was up 79%. Incredible but let me make perfectly clear that doesn’t happen every year. However, in the 10 years since we released the first portfolio it has never failed to deliver double digit gains.

Of course, past performance is no guarantee of future results but I like our chances given that I choose our speakers based on their track record. And on that score the group of headliners including Martin Armstrong, Keystone Financial’s Ryan Irvine, BP Global’s Paul Beatty, Timers Digest Market Timer of the Year Mark Lebovit, and Josef Schachter, is one of the best I’ve seen …anywhere.  A bold statement but their results speak for themselves.

I have to add that the results I just mentioned don’t include the incredible profits in the marijuana sector, which was first recommended by Mark Leibovit and Jim Dines at the World Outlook in 2014 – over three years before virtually anyone else in the business.  People who acted on the advice and invested in the marijuana sector anytime between 2014 and 2016 made an absolute killing.

By the way, this year’s conference will have a special session on cannabis and where to invest as we enter the second phase after legalization.

The Point

Given I spend an inordinate amount of time, along with Grant and everyone else at High Performance Events, planning and putting on the Outlook Conference it’s hardly a surprise that I hope you come.

And I’m sincere when I say it makes a terrific Christmas gift.  One that could impact someone’s financial well being for years to come. Even better if you come with them and share the experience.  I’ve had plenty of people come up over the years to say they’ve absolutely loved coming with friends or family. It’s a special weekend – bring someone – you can even go the extra mile and buy them 100 shares of one of the recommendations you like.

And hey – it is the 21st century. So if your prospective gift recipient absolutely can’t be there in person? Buy them a subscription to the online streaming video archive. All our speakers in HD, available at any time, with unlimited access. Like NetFlix for your finances!

In the meantime – I hope you have a terrific holiday season.

P.S.  –   We Just Made Christmas Gift Buying Really Easy

As you know I am hugely interested in educating our younger generations and to that end we have a special offer – if you buy a ticket – you can bring a student absolutely free.   The only thing we ask is you to let us know ahead of time, which you can do when you purchase your ticket. We have a limited number set aside and we want to be able to accommodate you.

The Debt Load!

Vancouver and Toronto are right there at the top when it comes to personal indebtedness. This isn’t necessarily a problem when the value of our homes is increasing, yet our politicians have consistently expressed their desire to drive down housing prices. In other words, they’ve purposefully made the debt load more precarious.

No Questions Allowed

Innovation is born out of questioning the status quo, so cutting off debate on “settled” scientific, political or social views makes the opposite happen – stifles any chance for meaningful change.

Little Concern For First Time Home Buyers


One of the biggest lies that is told to the public is about the governments concern over affordable housing and first time home buyers.
