Activist investors and the companies they target are just the starting point of our research.

Special situations. A special situation refers to particular circumstances involving a security or stock that compels investors to invest based on the special situation.

We did.

Thoughts from our members

Olivier De Vries

The Institute is constantly doing in-depth analysis of new and existing ideas as new information becomes available. I am impressed by the depth of knowledge and research capabilities.

Mark Peterson
Portfolio Manager

The most precise way I can describe my decision to sign up for the service is: I wish I had signed up much sooner. There are so many false narratives and mis-informed opinions in the media. Its very easy even for professional investors to have the wrong idea about the markets. The Institute’s service cuts through all of the noise, to give you the information you need to make the smart choices when it comes to your investments.

Chris Bennett

Exceptional analysis. Super prompt and intelligent response to subscribers questions. The Institute helps me identify stocks which produces returns beyond the subscription cost.

Their service provides more bang for your buck than any other service I have ever used. The research quality is superb, and the feedback prompt and highly instructive. I think of it as the ultimate value investment within the research subscription opportunity space. So far they have been fairly accurate.
