Stansberry 'Partnership'
Frequently Asked Questions

We've asked Nicholas Giro, Director of Partnership Services, to answer your most popular questions... If you have a question that's NOT answered below, feel free to call Nicks's office, toll-free, at 1-800-935-9713.

Q: "This all seems to be too good to be true... What's the 'catch'?"

Nick's Answer: We are opening our Alliance Partnership to the general public for 24-HOURS ONLY – ending December 20th at 4 pm Eastern time. For good reason: We are about to raise the price of admission next year. And we want to give you a chance to get in before the price goes up – if you think this program is right for you. The only "catch" is, if you sign up, then change your mind, there's a $1,000 cancellation fee... So long as you send back the two coins, in their original condition. There are two reasons for this fee. FIRST - we're giving you until February 20, 2019 to examine every piece of research we've ever published... worth tens of thousands of dollars. You could literally save every newsletter and portfolio to your computer drive – or print out a hard copy. And SECOND, we've put great effort into reaching you and making this opportunity possible. And we're only interested in bringing on “Partners” who take our work seriously.

Q: "I already subscribe to several Stansberry Publications and I have a hard time keeping up with them. How on earth could I manage to keep up with everything you publish?"

Nick's Answer: We hear this a lot. You've got family... a job... maybe kids or grand kids and you don't want to spend every waking hour paging through financial research. That's why we do something special for our Alliance Partners. We publish a weekly Executive Summary that gives you a bird's-eye view of what's going on in our business. In the space of 5 minutes - you can get up to speed on every recent recommendation - so you can decide what you'd like to focus on. We do this to save our Alliance Partners time and it's one of our most popular features. You'll receive your Executive Summary each Monday.

Q: "How much does it cost to become a Partner?"

Nick's Answer: Well it costs $30,000. But we’re going to apply every dollar you’ve spent in the past toward your Alliance entry fee. So, if you’ve spent $10,000 over the course of your history with us, you’ll get to join Alliance for an additional $20,000. If you’ve already spent $30,000, then you can upgrade to Alliance, essentially for free. Since this pricing is “custom” based on what you’ve spent with us, you’ll need to give us a call so we can apply your credit and calculate your balance. Then, we’ll figure out a payment method that works for you. You can allow us to bill the credit card we have on file. Or if you prefer, you can pay the remaining balance anyway you'd like. Personal check... money orders... a wire transfer... or even pay with a check from your brokerage account. Whatever's best for you. If you don’t want to pay all at once, we can even set up a convenient payment plan. But keep in mind - you have until February 20, 2019 to change your mind. At any time until then, you can request a refund, minus a $1,000 trial fee. Just return the two gold coins in their original condition. We believe this fee is more than fair, considering you'll have access to EVERYTHING we publish over the next three months. . Again, you'll have until Thursday, December 20th at 4 pm Eastern to join at the $30,000 price. After that we’ll be closing our Alliance Partnership to the public... and the one-time subscription fee will rise next year.

Q: "I'm not an experienced investor. Does the Alliance make sense for someone like me?"

Nick's Answer: The Alliance was not specifically designed for professional investors. Yes, you'll have a lifetime of access to all of our work - including some of our most sophisticated investment strategies. But you'll also enjoy dozens of educational resources. Like video courses from Dr. David Eifrig, and Porter Stansberry. Plus, access to dozens of our books, special reports and tutorials on investing. If you were to enroll in a financial course of study at a local college it would likely cost you thousands of dollars to acquire this knowledge. And worse, you'd have to sit through hours of boring lectures full of academic jargon. We've designed the Alliance program so you can quickly and easily get up to speed on pretty much any style of investing or asset class you can think of. Everything from options trading to income... foreign stocks to corporate bonds... to speculating on gold and silver mining companies.

Q: "How is being an Alliance member different from my current subscription to Stansberry Research?"

Nick's Answer: It’s simple... In addition to receiving everything we publish, including Stansberry Venture, for life, there are four exclusive benefits that we only share with our Alliance Partners:

1.) Early access to our Newest Research Letters:

This is a huge advantage. And the easiest way to describe it is to give you a few real-life examples...

In the fall of 2012, we launched Stansberry Alpha. Once again, it was Alliance Partners who got first crack at our research. And our first three recommendations were winners, including options plays on Chicago Bridge and Iron and MGM Resorts that produced gains of 232% and 119 %, on margin.

And in early 2016, when we launched Stansberry Gold & Silver Investor this year, it happened again.  A handful of mining stocks Porter recommended leapt 61%, 65%... even 126 and still have room to run.

Over the last few years, we’ve launched EIGHT new research services:

  • *NEW! Advanced Options
  • Ten Stock Trader (Beta)
  • True Wealth Opportunities: China
  • True Wealth Opportunities: Commodities
  • Stansberry Newsire
  • Stansberry’s Credit Opportunities
  • Stansberry's Big Trade
  • Stansberry Gold & Silver Investor

Collectively, these research letters are worth more than $20,000 per year. But as an Alliance Partner, they’re yours to enjoy at no extra charge. Plus, going forward you’ll have a chance to beta-test every new service we launch – weeks or months before anyone else.

2.) A Weekly Executive Summary:

Alliance Partners also receive a concise, Executive Summary each Monday that highlights the most recent trade recommendations and important pieces of research we've published.

Inside, you'll find a recap of all of our recommendations from the past week. So even if you don't have time to read through all our research - you can quickly see if something catches your eye, then - if you wish - read the full issue for the complete story.

This feature alone could save you hours of reading time each month and help you focus on the investments you're most interested in. It also helps to ensure you'll never miss another one of our recommendations for lack of time.

3.) You'll also get access to The Stansberry Total Portfolio: 

This is perhaps our most ambitious project to date. It’s designed to help you get the most out of our research and focus on our favorite 30 to 40 investment recommendations – across every newsletter we publish. The portfolio is broken down into 6 categories:

  • Core Holdings
  • Short Sells
  • Special Situations
  • Hedges
  • Capital Efficient
  • Income

The Total Portfolio is managed by editor Austin Root, who formerly worked for BOTH Steve Cohen's SAC Capital and Soros Fund Management, (the brainchild of famous billionaire George Soros). He also co-founded a hedge fund with a strategic investment from Julian Robertson's Tiger Management before joining our team to be the portfolio manager for the Total Portfolio. Rather than YOU having to do all the work of reading the newsletters, deciding which ideas are best, and allocating that into a portfolio... Austin selects ideas from Porter, Doc and Steve  and designs an ideal portfolio that you can simply follow along with. It's really a paint-by-numbers way of investing should you choose to take advantage of it.

4.) And Finally, You'll be Invited to Attend our Annual Partners Meeting:

Once a year, we host – for free – a private meeting for our Alliance Partners.

Years ago, we would meet locally, near our headquarters in Maryland.

Now, we hold these private gatherings all over the globe.

In 2007, we met on the white sands of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. In 2008, we met at the luxurious Four Seasons Hong Kong. In 2009, we stayed on Kiawah Island, in a 4-star resort off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina. In 2010, we stayed at the immaculate Dolder Grand resort in Zurich, Switzerland.

Lately, we've met up again at the incredible Aria Resort in Las Vegas.

Why do we meet in person? And what do we discuss?

Our Alliance Partners gather for several reasons... to connect with other members of the group; to have some fun eating good food, having a few drinks, relaxing, maybe playing some golf... and of course to discuss the best current moneymaking opportunities around the world, which you get to hear about before anyone else.

For example, when we gathered in Singapore, in 2013, we heard from Stansberry's in-house Natural Resource expert. And he told Alliance Partners about his favorite Resource Report recommendation... a tiny resource company called Pretium Resources (PVG).

At the time, the stock was trading for about $3 a share. And within a week, it had leapt 84% higher. Then, in the following months, it nearly tripled in value.

It seems like this sort of thing happens every year.

A few stand out in my mind...

Two years ago, we recommended a tiny mining company called Nemaska Lithium. And in the space of a year, its shares soared 360%.

In 2012, analyst David Lashmet shared three technology stocks he researched for Stansberry’s Investment Advisory... that he thought would soar thanks to the smart phone boom. His first pick, Dolby Laboratories (DLB) leapt 44% in the span of less than two years. And his other two plays, Ericsson (ERIC) and Corning, Inc. (GLW) did even better, rising 56% and 84% in the same time period.

And in 2011... Steve Sjuggerud practically begged our Alliance Partners to buy shares of bank stocks. And he shared an intriguing recommendation from True Wealth... a way to invest in the banking sector through TARP warrants.

What happened next? Well the warrants he recommended on Wells Fargo were closed out for a 122% gain… and the warrants he recommended on PNC Bank were closed out for a 709% gain!

We also like to bring in a few of our favorite CEOs and outside analysts to talk about what's happening in the markets.

I'm talking about folks we know and trust... like Dr. Ron Paul, Jim Rogers, Rick Rule, Cactus Schroeder, James Rickards, Steve Eisman of "Big Short" fame and Shark Tank star, Kevin O'Leary.

And the best part is, even if you can't join us in person, you will be able to access the video recordings and speaker presentations shortly after the event.

Q: "When you call this a lifetime membership, whose lifetime are we talking about? Mine or yours?"

Nick's Answer: As long as we're in business, you'll get everything we publish. Including Stansberry Venture Technology and Stansberry Venture Value – for life. Even better, your Alliance Partnership can be passed on to your heirs. We've heard from dozens of members who've included their Partnership in their will - to make sure a son or daughter has lifetime access to our research.

Q: "Do I need to have a large amount of investable wealth to become an Alliance Member?"

Nick's Answer: No. If and how much you invest based on our research will be up to you.  We've heard from a number of members who initially lost sleep over their Alliance Partnership. At the time, it seemed like a lot of money to spend on financial research. But we've heard from a lot of members who were thankful they made the decision to become a lifelong learner - before they had much money to invest. Only you can make the decision whether now is the right time. But I can tell you the financial obligation going forward is a modest $499 in annual dues. That’s all you’ll ever pay to continue to receive all research we publish for life.

Q: "If I have questions or am unsure about anything about my membership, can I speak to someone?"

Nick's Answer: Absolutely. We've set up a concierge number that you can call with any questions you might have about how your membership works and what you're entitled to. It's available to you during normal business hours: Monday through Friday. In fact, as a prospective Partner, you can speak with someone on our Alliance support team right now. Just call 1-800-935-9713. They'll be happy to walk you through the program and figure out if it's right for you.

Q: "I'm already a member of the Flex Program or Stansberry Choice- why should I become an Alliance Partner?"

Nick's Answer: There are a number of key benefits that Alliance Partners receive that Flex and Stansberry Choice members do not. I've listed them below:

  • Access to EVERYTHING All the Time. Alliance members don't have to swap services, they typically get access to everything.
  • Executive Summary. Once a week, Alliance Partners receive a concise, Executive Summary that highlights the most recent trade recommendations and important pieces of research we've published.
  • Instant Access to Our Latest Research. On our website, we have a Latest Research section that lists and organizes the latest research articles that were sent to Alliance members.
  • The Stansberry Total Portfolio. Each month, editor Austin Root selects his favorite 30 to 40 recommendations from Doc, Steve, and Porter's newsletters, and builds a balanced portfolio including safe income plays, growth stocks, emerging markets, and riskier small cap stocks.
  • Partners' Conference. Each year, we hold a private conference for our partners, where you'll have the opportunity to see our analysts as well as outside experts in person... and have the opportunity to hear their answers to the most popular questions about our research. (Keep in mind, we don't offer individualized advice.) And if you can't make the trip, you'll get access to the video feed... plus all the presentation materials, shortly after the event.
  • Access to our NEW Research Weeks (sometimes Months) Before Anyone Else. Each time we introduce a new research service, Alliance Partners get access first... often weeks before the general public.
  • Special Reports. Special topic reports are sometimes released only to Alliance members.

That about wraps it up. If I didn't answer to your question here – please give us a call, toll-free, at 1-800-935-9713. We're available to speak with you, one-on-one Monday through Friday, during normal business hours. Just remember, we can't offer any personal investment advice. And the special deal we’re offering for new Alliance members will only be available until December 20th, at 4pm Eastern time. Then it is gone for good.
