Are You a Strong Hands Investor?
In the last three months, we’ve welcomed a LOT of new members to the Strong Hands Nation!
You joined us during this market roller coaster! Which is something that can test even our most seasoned Strong Hands.
So, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about exactly what kind of trading we do.
Now, I can never predict the future, but I can tell you this:
if you're the kind of person that wants big gains, wants in early on big trends, can withstand volatility and is okay with holding on for a few years, this is the investment opportunity of a generation imo. people will look back in time and say, i coulda, woulda, shoulda

If you want a day trader that claims to predict exactly when the market will turn, this may not be the right place for you.
But if you want BIG ideas, mega trends, exciting America 2.0 opportunities for GROWTH stocks — space, battery tech, artificial intelligence and cryptos, you’re in the right place.
Check out today’s video to find out if you’re a Strong Hands investor:
Are You a Growth Investor?
I know that many people are siting back waiting for the stock market to continue its uninterrupted rise that we had since March 2020 until about February. I’m here to tell you something: Those conditions happen from time to time.
Many people like to buy when prices are rising really fast. The truth is, the best time to buy was into the crash. If you got in March of last year, it was a fantastic time. Many people like to buy when things are really good and feel really good. That is often a poor time to buy.
I am bringing this up because I have been getting Twitter messages from people wanting timing decisions, asking for specific dates with perfect precision as to when the stock market is going to keep going up the way it was in 2020 and early 2021. It made me think that I need to explain to people who we are for, who our services are for and not for.
We want to serve you best. The number one way to do that is to save the most precious thing: Your time. I just want to put this out there. This is not intended to be an insult of any kind. It’s just to make things clear what we are good at, who we are looking to serve and what we believe we do best.
I will start out with who we believe we are not for so you can find somebody who suits the information and purpose you are looking for.
1. We Are NOT for Day Traders.
In other words, people who are looking for multiple trades every day, who buy and sell and buy and sell. We are definitively not for that. The vast majority of our trades in our services are for a minimum of one to three years. That’s very far away from a day trader who will make multiple trades every day in the same stock sometimes minutes and seconds apart.
2. We Are NOT for Short-Term Traders.
It’s the same thing for short-term traders. In other words, people who buy something today and want to sell it tomorrow. People sometimes call it swing trading. The vast majority of these folks will put a trade on and sell it in a few days or, at most, a few weeks.
We have almost nothing to offer folks who want that.
3. We Are NOT for Fear Selling.
The other thing that a lot of people are looking for are sell decisions to avoid volatility: stop losses, trailing stop losses, volatility control. I can tell you in our services we hold through volatility. This is how we came up with the idea of strong hands.
You hold through volatility and we provide some guidance called Rules of the Game which we tell you you can use to try to get through these periods of volatility. I have never seen anyone make big money without being able to endure through volatility. We are definitely looking to make big money.
Hundreds of percent, hopefully thousands of percent. Which brings us to another thing that a lot of people are looking for: small gains.
4. We Are NOT for Small Gains.
We are looking for big gains. If you are looking for small, quick, rapid gains, we are wrong for you for sure.
The other thing that a lot of people complain to me about is about the volatility in many of our services. I will say, when you measure volatility a lot of our stocks swing a great deal. They are not low risk in terms of volatility. Our stocks can swing by 30% in a day.
Truthfully, in the crash in 2020 nearly every stock dropped by 30%, 40%, even 50%. On the flip side, they also came back and went and made new highs.
Even people who bought in prior to the crash ended up making 50%, 70%, 90%, even in some cases hundreds of percent. People who were willing to buy into the low made much more than that.
I can say we are definitively wrong for all those folks. I think that should draw a good line for many people in terms of the comments I get on YouTube. “What’s going to happen tomorrow?” “What’s going to happen next week?” “This event happened, what does it mean?”
In all likelihood, we are never going to give you the kind of information you are looking for. We will give you information when there is something like a big crash that happens. You can go back to March 24, 2020 and I made a video saying strong hands should stay in.
I was made fun of. I was called stupid and dumb. You can go back and watch this video and see what I said at the time and people’s reaction. It leads very much into my next section of this video which is who we are right for.
Who Our Services Are Good For…
In thinking about this, when I look at our stock picks we focus on megatrends. Right now the megatrends are technological: Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, transition from carbon energy to renewable energy which we refer to as new energy.
There’s precision medicine, which is the use of information to make much better decisions about healthcare. Then we have emerging new industries of space and urban aviation. All the things we focus on are future oriented. We are looking at something that is happening right now and the vast majority of people are going to come to it three, five, seven or 10 years from now.
We come in, relative to those folks, early. We are trying to make big money. We are trying to go for hundreds of percent, if not thousands. We try to do that consistently. Thus far, we have a good track record of doing this.
The folks we are right for are future oriented, want to make big money and because you are in early you have to want to be there at the start of a big, new trend. I mentioned in the previous segment that to get the benefit of being early and to make big money, you have to be there for some period of time.
It’s a minimum of one to three years. Some trades can even run longer than that. In fact, STMicroelectronics was the very first trade associated with IoT and it’s still in our Profits Unlimited portfolio. I mentioned earlier you have to be willing to accept volatility in exchange for these high returns.
I have never seen anybody, and you can look at all the greatest investors and speculators, they all endure through volatility to make the big money. The big money is made by allowing the market to do the work rather than bouncing around and buying and selling all the time.
You never really end up making any sizeable amounts of returns. The other thing is that many of the things that by being future oriented, by buying in somewhere near the beginning of the trend and wanting to make big money, they are often negatively written about by other people.
Whether it be the financial media or Wall Street Journal, they will be down on things like Tesla, Bitcoin (BTC), Uber, Zoom or Zillow when these stocks are primed to rise the most because of the fact the markets anticipate, look forward and look ahead.
People will be able to go and look and criticize Tesla and say they don’t make enough cars and their Autopilot software is nowhere near ready. “Look at General Motors, they make thousand of cars. Tesla does not deserve its market capitalization.”
You have to get used to seeing that kind of criticism from analysts, investment banks, the media, friends and family and certainly other YouTube channels. This is something that, if you can handle that, we are right for you.
This one goes along with that. Until you make the big money, be prepared for other people to tell you you are wrong, probably stupid, maybe dumb. The greatest evidence of this is Tesla. The vast majority of people who own Tesla really have been told that from the moment they bought it.
I have taken my share of it, whether it be about Tesla or BTC. Pretty much every single stock, if you watch our Profits Unlimited updates — Profits Unlimited is my flagship newsletter. It goes for $49 to $79 to $99 depending on what deal my publisher is offering. There will be a link below for ProfitsUnlimited.com if you are interested in checking it out.
In Profits Unlimited, I answer a lot of questions questioning me week after week. Until they start making the big money, sometimes it’s harder for other people to buy into these ideas. You have to be willing to potentially face other people’s points of view which are quite different than what we tell you.
The other thing is that many people join Profits Unlimited with their ways of doing things. Some of the ways people invest prior to Profits Unlimited is they take all their money and buy one stock. I call it all-in investing.
The other things that people do is buy and sell all the time rather than building a portfolio, equal weighting it, allowing volatility to wash through it and waiting for the market to do the work to make the big money. The second thing you should be wiling to do is to adjust your current way and adopt a new way for this growth-oriented strategy.
The next thing I will also mention which I get criticized for a lot is that sometimes I will put a stock in and shortly after the facts change. The company perhaps has an event like earnings or maybe a product or service has gone wrong. Perhaps there is a pattern I have noticed from my past experience that tells me there is something going on that I need to be wary of.
Or that the market is ahead of the actual news being put out there. We change our mind. We sell. Sometimes people get angry and annoyed for doing this. However, we have to be willing to change our minds when the facts change. Some people get very tied down and attached to the stocks.
When the facts change we sell and move on. For the most part, we have had a good track record in selling stocks that needed to be sold. Many of them have declined a great deal or stood still while other stocks rose a great deal.
There’s always these two elements. Staying in a stock that’s going to stand still may seem OK, but understand there are other stocks that, if you are looking out one or three years, can generate hundreds of percent if not thousands of percent in returns. We want to find those stocks and be in them.
The last thing I will mention is that many people want a super easy strategy. I can tell you Profits Unlimited is a strategy you will need to put some work into. There are weekly updates which my amazing colleague Amber Lancaster and I spend a lot of time on.
This is an update where we answer as many questions as we can. We can never answer all of them, but we try to answer as many as we can. We do that pretty much every week. These videos are 30 minutes long.
After crashes and problems, they can stretch to an hour as we try to guide people, provide guidance, answer questions and try to provide assurance based on our expertise and knowledge. The bottom line is, there is work that you will need to do on your money, your finances, your stocks and your selection.
The last thing is that you are in control. You determine your destiny. You determine the stock you are going to buy. You determine if you are going to follow the guidance we provide. We are not financial advisors. We are simply idea providers.
We provide you with stock ideas and information about trends we believe are unfolding that represent profit opportunities for you to get in on. IoT is the greatest example that we really built our business on. Then AI, blockchain — you know all of them from being on the channel.
That is what we do. We show you these opportunities. We show you the stocks we believe are positioned to benefit from these opportunities. From there, the rest is up to you. It’s in your hands. That is perhaps the most important thing in terms of who we are right for.
It’s folks who want to take action, want to take control of their own finances and the investing of their money.
Do you think what we offer is right for you?
