Wall Street Doesn’t Want You to be a Good Investor

I spent over 20 years on Wall Street, slicing and dicing earnings reports, hundreds – sometimes thousands – of pages long to find out what companies were really worth.  For better or for worse.

From that, I came away with a wealth of knowledge that’s convinced me of this rather uncomfortable truth: Not only do many of the companies you own stakes in right now not have your best interests at heart, but they are flat out lying to you. And even the analysts on Wall Street and the talking heads in the financial news media seem to be in on the con.

Even worse… it’s 100% legal for these companies to be feeding you these lies.

They truly do not want you to be a well-informed, well-educated investor.

They don’t want you to know all the details about the products you’re buying, or ask questions, be patient, and use common sense when investing.

Instead, they want you to believe investing is too hard — and too complicated — for you to be any good at it on your own.

This means you’re forced to blindly trust that what a company is telling you about their numbers… the health of their business… and their prospects for the future, are 100% FACTS.

And they want you to hand over your hard earned money that’s taken you decades to save — without question.

What if I told you that this describes up to 95% of companies currently trading on the stock market today? That these companies are essentially stealing money right out of your pocket!?

These are some of the biggest names in the corporate world… companies that trade millions of shares a day, who you might be invested in right now (I reveal some of these names in the infographic below).

But where is this money going?

Right into the wallets of CEOs.

In fact, in many of these “bandit” companies, CEOs are earning over 300-times more than their own employees!

After spending over two decades on Wall Street, I now spend my days as a forensic accountant, helping everyday investors like you, rather than the corporate executives and insiders looking to add another million to their net worth.

Give our latest infographic, How CEOs are Earning 335x MORE Than Their Own Employees a read to discover more about just how far this Wall Street deceit goes… and how you can still uncover many more lucrative opportunities in the stock market today!
