Celebrate 5 Years of Market Doubling Gains!
Happy birthday Profits Unlimited!
It’s hard to believe how fast those five years have gone, and how far we’ve come since that first recommendation.
We’ve beaten the market … by double!
It’s all thanks to our America 2.0 focus, my incredible superstar team, and most importantly – YOU!
I’m so excited to see what the next five years and beyond have in store for us.
Today, the entire Bold Profits team is here to celebrate and share four iconic Profits Unlimited stocks:
Happy 5 Year Birthday to Profits Unlimited!
Amber Lancaster: We are celebrating the five-year anniversary of Paul’s flagship investment newsletter: Profits Unlimited.
To celebrate in style and with you in mind, Paul Mampilly, editor of Profits Unlimited and seven elite trading services; Ian Dyer, senior analyst and editor of three trading services; Tamara Barkhanoy, investment research analyst; Patrick Goodrich, investment analyst; Alex, who has his back turned; and me, director of investment research, will be sharing four iconic Profits Unlimited investments that should be part of your America 2.0 stock portfolio.
Let’s get started. First off, Paul, we have to hear from the man of the hour. Congratulations. You started Profits Unlimited five years ago and here we are. Congratulations to you.
Paul Mampilly: Thank you, Amber. Before we say anything we want to thank our Strong Hands Nation, without which there would be nothing. There would be no Strong Hands Nation, no Profits Unlimited, none of our services. A debt of gratitude to our subscribers, readers, viewers and all the folks who follow us.
The second debt of gratitude I personally have is to all of you, my amazing, unbelievable, phenomenal, incredible — I have more superlatives but I will stop. I could be nothing without the amazing team who is behind me. There are many others who also sit behind all of us.
In the interest of time, I will not name all of them. Nonetheless, there is an extraordinary team at Bold Profits, our publisher. Then we have a parent publisher, Banyan Hill, and there is another team that sits behind us as well. So a debt of gratitude to all of them for the extraordinary amount of work it has taken for us to get to five years.
Our Very First Trade: STMicroelectronics
When we started on June 1, 2016, the environment was a little like what we have right now. There was a crash, then there was a correction. Our very first recommendation was associated with our Internet of Things video promotion and it was STMicroelectronics.
If you go back and look at what STMicroelectronics stock had done in the previous five years, it had gone from a reasonably small number to a much smaller number. It was something like $5 or $6. One of the most common questions I got early on was a spicy one:
“Why are you recommending this terrible, horrible stock to us?”
Go and look at what STMicroelectronics has done since. It has gone from $5 or $6 to a peak of something in the $40s. That has been the essence of the investment success of Profits Unlimited. It has provided the underlying intellectual underpinnings of everything we have done since.
We have focused exclusively on these incredible life-changing, society-changing megatrends and technology shifts. We have now uniquely branded them for Profits Unlimited and Bold Profits as America 2.0. This is our signature way of referring to this phenomenal time.
When we look back 20 years from now or 30 years from now you will look at this period and say, “Wow, what an astonishing time.” We had this moment where everything could be connected to the internet. You could now what was going on with anything: your car, your house.
Then you look at astonishing things like the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) making things easier. Or, to me, the most dramatic form of it is if you are a fan of space, to see Elon’s rockets go up and come back down again looks like a movie. That is the essence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, America 2.0 and this moment.
It is making that which was once thought to be science fiction or stuff you needed to go to the movies for. No need to go the movies, just walk outside your door. More importantly, open a brokerage account and start investing. This stuff can make you an extraordinary pile of money.
That is what the underlying strategy of Profits Unlimited is. Instead of just looking at it and saying, “That’s interesting.” You can participate in it, be a part of it, benefit from it. That is, in the end, our strategy and our philosophy of this moment.
Investing in Companies That Change the World
We are going to go through this moment not as spectators, we are going to play a part in it. We also can benefit from it. Rather than looking back as many people do at the Amazons, Netflixes and Googles and say, “I shoulda, coulda, woulda.” We say, “You should!”
You can do it right now. One of the ways you can do it is by subscribing to this channel or Profits Unlimited where we are laser focused on these amazing, astonishing megatrends and the leading companies in them. Based on my experience, that’s where you end of making the biggest amount of money and getting the biggest benefit.
In truth, these are the companies that are changing the world and will continue to change the world. That’s where we’ve been for five years straight. In my opinion, I believe we are just getting started. There is still so much more that is coming. Many people disbelieve it.
However, we have barely touched the edge of implementation of technologies like 3D printing that we are all in on across all our services. Eventually, you will see everything from houses to rockets made by 3D printing.
Anyway, I could go on and on and on about all this. Many viewers on our YouTube channel know this already. Alex back there is already beginning to react. He’s like, “Alright Paul.” Amber, I am going to throw it back to you. I believe the best is yet to come. There is an extraordinary amount of opportunity still left.
We are in the early innings. I am BOP — bullish, optimistic, positive — on us, our team, Profits Unlimited, our services and on our Strong Hands Nation. With that, I throw it back to you, Amber, for this special anniversary birthday issue of Market Talk.
BUZZ Stocks: Bitcoin, Uber, Zillow and Zoom
Amber: I love what you just said, Paul. The best is yet to come. I love those words. That’s how we should be looking. We should be looking forward. Today we are using a phrase you coined last year. It’s called BUZZ. We have asked all the analysts today to come on today and talk about BUZZ.
It stands for Bitcoin, Uber, Zillow and Zoom. First up we will have Ian give his take on where Bitcoin is headed and give that Profits Unlimited take on it. Ian, take it away.
Ian Dyer: Thank you, Amber. We’ve had a crazy couple of weeks with Bitcoin (BTC) and crypto in general. I want to distill some of the fear today that some of you might have. I think it’s actually a good time to buy crypto. I think we will look back on this dip in a couple months and definitely years from now and say, “Wow, I wish I would have bought more.”
That’s what we have seen every time there has been one of these big drops. It always rebounds. It always comes back stronger. The awareness in crypto has never been higher. I think it won’t be long at all before we are back at all-time highs.
What we saw was a market-clearing event where a lot of people who bought in at the top ended up selling. I think the people who are committed to crypto and BTC are the ones buying this dip. That is the big money that will eventually push it up to new highs and beyond.
I am still maintaining my target price of BTC at $350,000 in the next 12 months. I think the rally we saw where it broke $20,000 and went all the way up to $65,000 is just the beginning. That was stage one of this bull market which I think is going to go on for a long time.
Like I said, $350,000 is still my price target at this point.
Paul: I just want to throw in since I came up with BUZZ that my price target, which I have accelerated, is that BTC will hit $250,000 in the next 12 months. That’s one additional thing I want to throw in.
Amber: We love the bullish sentiment. Thank you so much, gentlemen. Now for Patrick. He will give us his BOP take on Uber. Take it away, Patrick.
Patrick Goodrich: Thank you, Amber. Happy Birthday everybody. I don’t need to explain much about Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER). It’s revolutionizing the way we transport people, food and things. They are just getting started with the gig economy.
Looking forward, they are investing in autonomous vehicles. In their latest report, they said they have a 26% stake, or $1.7 billion stake, in Aurora Technologies. They are breaking ground on the trucking industry and implementing autonomous trucking in Texas.
It’s great to see that innovation happening and fast forwarding America 2.0 into autonomous vehicles. We’re very bullish on Uber and their stock. Right now it is up nearly 130% in our model portfolio, but we believe it can continue going even higher than that and making new all-time highs.
We are BOP on Uber, transportation and autonomous vehicles. We can expect further growth and gains in Uber.
Paul: I want to add that Uber is going to continue to play a central role in coordinating all transportation and logistics. Initially we just had cars, now they have added on food as a category and trucks as Patrick mentioned. Then it’s going to be air taxis and autonomous cars and who knows what else.
Maybe they will be coordinating spaceships. Who knows. Elon can call Uber and say, “Get me some pizza on Mars.” Back to you, Amber.
Amber: Now we have Tamara. She is going to focus on her beat which is Zillow and housing. Take it away, Tamara.
Tamara Barkhanoy: Thank you so much, Amber. Happy Birthday to our Strong Hands Nation and Profits Unlimited. For real estate, many of our Strong Hands Nation know we are bullish on real estate. According to our research, that’s going to continue because housing demand is higher than the supply.
There’s a new way of finding and buying houses out there. It’s digital. It’s changing the game and it skyrocketed in 2020. Part of it was virtual touring. One company skyrocketed 600% in a month last year. That company is Zillow Group (Nasdaq: ZG).
It’s a digital real estate company. It allows people to search for homes from thousands of miles away. Because of that technology that makes house hunting easy and fun, Zillow is becoming a leader in real estate. It became one of the most visited sites for real estate last year, according to Statista.
Zillow said it had 10 billion visits in 2020. It’s up from one billion in 2019. This is incredible growth. The reasons for that success are right in front of us. Millennials are reaching the age where they are ready to buy their first homes. There’s also a hunger for innovation in the market.
That’s why we think Zillow still has massive growth ahead. It represents a massive opportunity for our readers. That’s why we recommended it in 2018. It’s up more than 200% in our Profits Unlimited portfolio, but we still think there is massive upside and growth. We are very bullish on its future.
Amber: Thank you so much.
Paul: Since I mentioned something on all the stocks I just want to say that on housing I saw this stat that was mind blowing. In the United States, we are four million houses short of demand. Everything Tamara is saying is true. We are going to see waves of buying from the millennial generation.
Then there’s Gen Z right after them who also wants to buy. This is why the real estate markets are on fire. While many people would look at traditional homebuilding stocks, we think the biggest upside is in stocks like Zillow where the big money is not yet there.
Even though we have made some good money, we can make even more. Everything Tamara said is 100% true and that’s why we are still in Zillow. Amber, back to you.
Amber: Rounding out BUZZ, I will take number four. Stock number four is a true favorite of the Bold Profits team. It’s how we are communicating with you right now. That company is Zoom Video Communications (Nasdaq: ZM). The first thing I want everyone to do is please check out this chart.
Since 2019, Zoom revenue has been on a tear. Its growth has soared to a high. The pandemic helped, but it’s actually just the beginning for Zoom. What you see in this chart is from 2019 is Zoom’s revenue was at $330.5 million and it’s projected to grow even higher.
The chart also shows Bloomberg data revenue projections for the company through 2026 are amazing. The data forecasts that Zoom’s company revenue has the potential to climb even higher by nearly $6.8 billion, reaching $9.4 billion by 2026. Here’s why Paul and the believe Zoom is highly likely to achieve these revenue goals.
It’s all about the Internet of Things. You probably guessed it, but here’s a fun fact. Internet of Things was Paul’s very first Bold Profits megatrend. Think of how much we have to thank for this technology. We have smart watches, our connected homes, smart home security systems — everything you can think of is connected to the internet.
Paul actually shared that he has about 60 things connected to internet in his home. He truly lives an Internet of Things life. Just know, the Internet of Things is billions of physical devices around the world that are implanted with sensors and other technologies that are connected to the internet.
The evolution of Internet of Things applications in our daily lives is massive. Paul sees Zoom as a key player in Internet of Things. Zoom is the greatest telepresence platform in the world. Its business has soared over the past year. Most everyone must know what Zoom is.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at where Paul foresees Zoom heading. He believes that one day, as the company adapts and innovates, we could see Zoom robots wheeling around with our faces on the screen and our voices talking to people. It could even possibly be a hologram.
Right now, no one is really thinking of Zoom this way, but Paul is. He knows this is where big gains can be had. Just like no one realized Tesla could rise as much as it has, looking forward Paul forecasts that Zoom is the future of Internet of Things.
He actually predicts there’s a 500% gain to be had with Zoom over the next three to five years. Just know that we are absolutely #BOP on Zoom for today, tomorrow and the foreseeable future. We believe it’s one of the signature America 2.0 stocks that you should own.
Paul: I want to bring up something Patrick gave me right before this call. You know we track our performance using an equal-weighted methodology. We put $1,000 into every stock. Based on that, this is what the Profits Unlimited portfolio has done over these last five years.
We know we are a couple days short of five years. Nonetheless, this is what we’ve done. We have annualized at 28.5%. I can tell you, team, you should be proud. This is amazing performance. The S&P 500 has done 14.8% in a similar time period. Just understand, that’s 500 stocks.
We, at any given time, only allow really 40 or 45 stocks. So with a very small number of stocks we are forced to keep up with a much larger index where they can take so many different bets. We have to be much more precise and get things right much more often.
It’s a great achievement. Congratulations to all of you and the team. On a total return basis since inception, the Profits Unlimited equal-weighted portfolio is up 259% versus 120%. Many people say that’s really good and it is extraordinary.
Especially when you consider that in any portfolio I ran on Wall Street we have hundreds of companies. You can take a lot of shots on goal. Also, we answer reader questions when stocks decline in price. As all of you know, we answer the questions.
I can tell you you cannot call up any portfolio manager and ask why the stock is down. They will hang up on you. Bottom line, well done to all of you and all the team. Thank you so much for all your work. We would be nothing without it.
