Rank #2: Episode 35: The Safest Way to Invest Money
Dan Ferris joins the Stansberry Investor Hour to tell you about the safest way to invest your money in the stock market. He and Porter recall the very first idea that launched Dan’s Extreme Value newsletter with a classic illustration of value investing which would make Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham proud. Dan shows you why seemingly boring companies can be investments that allow you to sleep well at night, but also have the potential to double or triple your money.
John Gillin from the Stansberry NewsWire service joins Buck for a review of all the best and worst technologies he recently saw at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. VR shopping, dual-screen cell phones, and autonomous vehicles were some of the big themes on display. John tells you when you can expect a driverless car to pick you up in front of your house, or see a long-haul truck on the highway with no one at the wheel.
Listeners write in about the false missile warning in Hawaii, the use of blockchain technology in the options market, and the three cocktail recipes Porter and Buck can use for any occasion.
1:59: Buck and Porter introduce Dan Ferris, senior editor and analyst for the Extreme Value newsletter published by Stansberry Research. Porter explains how Dan has been with Stansberry Research from the beginning and that the type of value investing Dan does is the very opposite of what’s popular, but is really what most people should do.
6:08: Porter explains value investing and tells you why it’s the absolute safest way to invest in equities. Dan and Porter recall the very first value idea they had together that launched Extreme Value back in 2000. It was a cash gushing catalog clothing retailer selling for 2x earnings that was an easy double once it’s value was fully realized.
9:26: Porter tells you the one criteria required to make an Extreme Value recommendation. Dan describes his latest pick as the only stock in the world you need to own right now. In a world where every market seems to be fully valued, Dan and his team at Extreme Value have found one stock in a hated industry that could be the next double or triple.
12:57: Dan tells you why one of his tops picks in Extreme Value, Altius Minerals, is still in the portfolio today after first being recommended in 2009. And it’s still compounding at about 10% per year.
15:35: Stocks are high today – so what would be on Dan’s “buy list” in a sudden bear market full of stocks on sale? Dan reveals the #1 stock he’d love to get back into, and why “I sold because I’m stupid.” Even though he made over 600% for his Extreme Value subscribers.
22:47: Dan tells you about one of the most visible and easy ways to spot companies that are on sale, but also make great decisions and have favorable prospects for growth.
24:52: Buck talks with John Gillin of the Stansberry Newswire about what he saw out at the recent 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. John tells you about the one technology he saw at CES that he would put in his home tomorrow. John also tells us that Uber was meeting with the FAA at CES is working on a business to take you everywhere, and it has nothing to do with automobiles.
33:38: Jesse writes in with a question about the recent false missile warning in Hawaii. More than just government employee incompetence?
36:50 Porter asks Buck for his take on the “shi*hole” brouhaha, and Buck explains the political rationale behind this – there’s a reason Democrats are fanning these flames as the battle for DACA begins.
43:27: Porter answers a listener’s question about blockchain and the potential role this technology could play in the options market. Porter reveals the name of a company that is wholly owned by Overstock.com and is building solutions to leverage and service blockchain technologies.
45:10: Marcus writes in with some cocktail recommendations for Porter and Buck and shares a recipe for Blood and Sand.

Rank #3: Episode 36: The Epic Collapse of GE, How the Stock Market MeltUp Ends, & Student Loan Chaos
Porter tells you about what really happened at General Electric (GE) under the reign of Jack Welch and his successors. It’s the story of an unholy partnership between big government and big media. A tragedy of paper money, financial speculation and excessive greed. Porter explains what GE has been doing since the mid-90s, and it has nothing to do with lightbulbs, locomotives, or power plants. GE has been involved in a gigantic financial gamble for decades…right under the nose of shareholders. The SEC is now investigating the company’s accounting, and Porter explains how GE could easily become the next Enron or Lehman.
Buck and Porter welcome Steve Sjuggerud, editor of True Wealth and Porter’s long-time partner at Stansberry Research. Steve reveals how much longer the stock market MeltUp can continue, which warning sign to look for from the government that has consistently preceded the last three market corrections, and a recommendation for Buck on the easiest way to invest in the China boom.
Jan 25 2018
Rank #4: Episode 48: How This Stock Market Trend Makes Money
Porter and Buck welcome Greg Diamond, senior analyst of Ten Stock Trader and co- host of The Investors Marketcast. Greg explains why we’re at a big inflection point in the stock markets and how Ten Stock Trader just posted a 25% gain in less than 24 hours. Porter asks Greg to reveal the one trend he sees in the markets right now that can help you make money. Porter tells you the first thing he looks at when buying or selling a stock, and how he finds businesses that produce products his grandchildren (and their grandchildren) will be using.
Founder of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente, joins the show to explain his methodology of spotting future economic, social, and technology trends. Porter asks Gerald how massive corporate and consumer debt is weighing on markets and what he thinks about the possibility of a populist debt jubilee. Gerald tells you why what’s happening in the Middle East right now can send a shockwave through the equity markets, and how autonomous driving is still a “nerdy pipe dream” that’s decades away from becoming reality.
Porter answers listener questions about selling put options, proper position sizing for bond portfolios, and the secret origins of the ubiquitous Country Club Guy.

Rank #5: Episode 60: How This One Man Non-Profit Took Down an $80 Billion Company
Porter gets immediately to the heart of Netflix’s recent woes in this 60th episode of Stansberry Investor Hour. It may have 100 million subscribers (including Porter) but the $163 billion company could be doomed thanks to one simple corporate calculation. “I have yet to call for the end of Netflix… but I can see the ending on the horizon.”
Buck asks about Elon Musk’s head-scratching decision to call a British rescue diver he didn’t know a “pedo” and Porter explains the method to his madness. When your whole career is a “Wizard of Oz” style act, you want people talking about anything, even outrageous behavior, before they look at your balance sheets.
Buck introduces Roddy Boyd, an independent journalist who not only eschews advertisers but also paid subscribers, choosing to distribute his findings for free. His Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation has exposed some of the biggest abuses on Wall Street since 2012, and head’s been credited by New York Magazine for exposing “perhaps the worst Ponzi scheme ever.”
Now he has a new warning about a company masquerading as a promising pharmaceutical company and head’s ready to explain how he knows it could be the next Valeant Pharmaceuticals, which he was working to expose in 2014, when the high-flying stock was still fooling thousands of investors.
What’s truly amazing - and what makes Porter “slightly suspicious“ - is that this incredible research, which could have made hedge funds fortunes from shorting the paper tigers Boyd uncovers, is being offered to readers for free.
We think, after the epic fraud Boyd has uncovered that was often hiding in plain sight, you won’t want to miss his latest warning.

Rank #6: Episode 38: Government Theft 101, Dinner with Hitler, & the Future of Medicine
Porter talks about the VIX falling out of bed while he was down in Nicaragua last week, and the reactions of Alliance members who were along for the trip at Rancho Santana. Buck prompts Porter on a wild ride covering the moral bankruptcy of fiat money, how US monetary and elected officials have truly “jumped ship” on fiscal responsibility, where interest rates go from here, and the borrow culture of the new America that is making it impossible for millennials to save and build wealth.
Dave Lashmet, lead analyst and editor of Stansberry Venture Technology, connects with Porter to talk about the latest medical and technology trends he’s studying that have the potential to deliver huge returns to your portfolio. Porter and Dave talk about their first biotech research trip together in 1999, the reality of seeing autonomous vehicles on your street, immunotherapy for cancer patients, and the famous “Dinner with Hitler” essay they wrote together.
Scott from Indiana asks Porter about solar energy. Rant alert! You won’t want to miss Porter’s response on what might be the most economically backwards source of energy on planet earth, despite our government’s attempt to make you pay for it.

Rank #7: Episode 34: Why Gold Will Beat Bitcoin in 2018
Porter and Buck are back from holiday break to give you their boldest predictions for 2018. The first one’s a doozy for regular listeners as Porter provides granular detail on how the stage is set for gold and other commodities to have a massive stealth bull market this year. Buck asks Porter about the pros and cons of owning physical gold bullion versus gold stocks. You’ll also hear Porter reveal the one gold equity he favors that gives you most of gold’s benefits, without owning a single ounce of the precious metal.
Porter and Buck welcome best-selling author and founder of the Wealth Factory, Garrett Gunderson. As a teenager, Garrett launched his first company and won business competitions across the state of Utah. By age 26 he was a multi-millionaire and partner in several financial enterprises. He tells Porter about his new upcoming book, Five Day Weekend, and the three things he’s writing about right now that will help you build your financial infrastructure and grow your money.
The mailbag is stuffed with reader feedback on Jack Reacher, gold, cryptos, and a question for Porter on capital efficiency. Buck tells Porter about a phone call he recently received from Ivanka Trump (no kidding), and “Arianna” makes an appearance to give Porter tips on staying healthy in 2018.

Rank #8: Episode 47: These Bonds Reveal Stocks Ready to Pop
Stansberry senior analyst and editor Bryan Beach joins Porter and Buck to talk about his recent speaking engagement at the Grant’s Interest Rate Observer Conference in New York. Bryan’s presentation revealed his new system for spotting stocks that are poised for triple digits gains by studying their counterpart in the bond markets. Bryan explains the distinct difference between stock buyers and bond investors. Which market does the smart money follow?
Porter asks Buck to explain why America keeps meddling in the Middle East. “It’s not our war.” Is there an imminent threat to the US from rouge nations, psycho-dictators, or Al-Qaeda? Porter is thinking more and more about gold and reveals his favorite precious metal company to own before all others. A listener writes in with a question about what would happen to insurance companies and policies in a debt jubilee scenario.

Rank #10: Episode 11: These Two Unusual Market Signals Could Unwind the Current Bull Market
Porter’s nervous this week because he’s seeing two very specific and unusual things that have never happened in the markets before…and it’s "completely insane." Porter and Buck welcome special guest Richard Maybury, editor of the U.S. & World Early Warning Report and author of the common-sense Uncle Eric book series. Richard enlightens listeners to the concept of “Chaostan” and reveals how this unpredictable part of the world has ironically led to one of the most predictable trends in investing. Porter opens the mailbag and tells a listener how to take advantage of record-low market volatility, and the inevitable reversion to the mean of the VIX once the bull market changes course.
Aug 10 2017
Rank #11: Episode 43: This is How the Bull Market Ends
Porter gives one last lesson on the big mistake Warren Buffett is making that could change Berkshire Hathaway forever. Buck breaks down the culture of the FBI and its influence on “Russiagate,” and Porter wonders why successful money managers and business people are often the target of politicians, while real criminals like those behind the 2008-2009 financial crisis just walk away.
Buck and Porter welcome Erez Kalir, CEO and co-founder of Stansberry Asset Management. Porter and Erez discuss four specific “mile markers” to watch for that will signal the end of the current bull run in stocks.

Porter asks Erez to tell you the one stock he would buy if it was the only one he could hold forever.
Buck gives his account of the Facebook data breach that erased over $35 billion in investor capital in one day. Is the stock a buy or sell? Porter weighs in. A listener sends in a question about student debt forgiveness and what it would mean to Porter’s American Jubilee prediction.

Rank #13: Episode 14: Here’s the Final Warning Sign You’ll See Before the Next Bear Market and $1 Trillion in Losses.
What in the world is going on in the bond markets? This is the question Porter asks Marty Fridson, a bond market visionary whose 40-year career has been accurate enough for him to be labeled “the Dean of High-Yield Debt.” Marty reveals the one market index and unique metric he developed to spot the beginning of bear market cycles…and what he’s seeing right now is so unusual it hasn’t happened since...2008. But there’s one thing missing. Buck and Porter discuss the complete madness of America’s involvement in Afghanistan, why the US doesn’t need to be in the Middle East, and what might be America’s most neglected history lesson – the country’s first and only war against slavery, fought after the American Revolution but long before the Civil War.

Rank #16: Episode 46: China Trade War Opportunities
Steve Sjuggerud joins Buck this week to break down the mixed messages you’ve been seeing on China’s economy, proposed US trade tariffs, and why “Trump’s China” is based on an outdated perception and vastly different from reality in Beijing. Steve tells you the one thing that matters most when it comes to investing in China’s markets, and why the trade war volatility is presenting a unique investment opportunity. Steve tells you the easiest way for foreign investors to get exposure to local Chinese stock markets.
Author and Daily Beast columnist Gordon Chang joins the conversation to tell you why a China trade war has been coming for quite some time. Buck asks Gordon if China is in a better trade negotiation position than the US, and whether or not President Xi Jinping’s communist leadership will fall in line with US requests on intellectual property. Will a crisis of confidence in China put a damper on its hyper growth policies?
A listener writes in with a timely question about China’s aspiration to become a more relevant player in global currency markets. Does it make a difference to the US, Europe, and Japan if China pushes the yuan as a reserve currency?

Rank #17: Episode 61: Walmart: The Retailer Amazon's Not Done Ravaging
Walmart’s woes are becoming such common knowledge that even journalist politicos are now asking Buck how the once-great retailer can turn things around. Porter reveals two reasons Amazon’s in more trouble than anyone realizes – and the only rational thing he thinks anyone CEO of Walmart can do now.
Porter elaborates on the storm clouds he sees ahead for Netflix and Tesla, and entertains an argument from one listener that he’s got it wrong about Tesla.
The team also wades into current events controversy – including the shooting of a man after a tussle involving a stolen handicapped parking spot and a sucker punch. Then the talk turns to international saber-rattling, with Porter reading aloud one of Trump’s greatest Twitter taunts of a foreign leader before Buck shares the surprisingly positive consequences of America being the actor with a reckless (crazy?) President for a change.
Porter reveals the big cryptocurrency news at Stansberry Research, and why one guru is coming around to Bitcoin at long last.

Rank #18: Episode 68: The Dawn of Machine Learning
We have two guests with a track record that’s, in Porter’s words, “ridiculous” this week – Venture Technology’s Dave Lashmet and Christian Olsen, whose research service has uncovered 14 doubles since its launch.
Dave and Christian both have deep backgrounds in biology and biotech – and they’re not just focused on promising small-caps with pipelines that position them for rocket returns. In fact, in this episode they crown some winners among the big pharma giants in immune oncology, cardiac disease, and neuro diseases.
In this recording taking place on the 17th anniversary of 9/11, Porter, Buck, and “Country Club Guy” Jamison Miller all reflect on where they were that morning, and how it’s affected where they are today. From Porter’s decision to get married on September 11, to Buck’s decision to join the intelligence agency, the quirks of fate are interesting to pick apart.
After interviewing Dave and Christian on the most exciting opportunities in tech today – including the field that they both say is about to be as transformative as the Internet, but still in its infancy – it’s mail bag time.
Dan W. writes about his home state of Texas “protecting him from himself” by barring him from investing in assets considered too risky – high yield bonds in this case. Porter explains a possible workaround, and then takes a question from an anonymous reader who says Porter’s done everything he said he would, but is still unhappy, calling Porter “like a senior in a fraternity” vs. him being “a pledge.” Porter explains why he can’t apologize for what he’s done.

Jason shows you how sentiment can be massively valuable for contrarians who buy hated investments, and Porter asks what kind of ignored opportunities he sees today.
Steve asks Jason for his take on the bond markets, oil, interest rates, and how volatility and sentiment impact trading decisions. Porter shares his biggest saving grace as an investor, and asks Jason how quickly a market indicator can get him to change his mind.
Porter answers a listener’s question about how bond recovery works when a company goes bankrupt, and Steve tells you why many Chinese stocks are set to explode, how you can get in on the trade, and why China is his absolute favorite investment theme for the next 2 to 5 years.

Buck brings up the latest in the PC culture war – a bid to rename what may be the most liberal city in Dixie. He also explains why they’ll likely succeed, even though the name Yale, named after a slave trader, is still untouchable.
