Jeff Brown is the founder of Brownstone Research, which offers free and paid services to help you make market-beating investments. Before that, he was an executive for tech companies like Qualcomm, Juniper Networks, and NXP Semiconductors. He actively and successfully angel invests in technology startups. This gives him access to key information months, sometimes years before the general public. He uses this impressive resume to sell subscription services like The Near Future Report. I’ll review it below.
With The Near Future Report you get a full year of Jeff’s best investment ideas. Each month you’ll receive a new issue with tips about cashing in on artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, robotics, self-driving cars, and all the most exciting tech trends of our time. In addition, you’ll get access to Brownstone Research’s model portfolio, where you can see all of their open positions. Worried about information overload? Don’t be. Jeff’s Delray Beach, Florida-based support staff will be on standby, waiting to help.
There are bonuses. Obviously. Bonus #1: How To Make A Fortune From Tesla’s Secret Supplier. Bonus #2: My #1 Pure 5G Play. Bonus #3: The New Economy: 5 Stocks That Will Soar In The Post-Covid World. Bonus #4: full 24/7 access to their members-only website. The regular price for a 12 month subscription to The Near Future Report is $199. But if you act now, you’ll get all the above bonuses plus a significant discount: just $49.
“That’s just 13 cents a day,” Jeff says. “And I’m not even asking for any type of long-term commitment. You can just try it out and decide later if it’s right for you. I’ll give you 60 days to test out the service at no risk. And if, during that period, you find that you’re not getting life-changing information (or, for any reason at all), you can simply call our customer service department and cancel your subscription.”
Yep, the good people at Brownstone Research won’t give you any grief or even ask you any questions as to why you want your money back. And you can keep everything, including the bonuses. Jeff then rattles off a bunch of stocks that had outstanding gains last year, as if to say, “Here’s what you’re missing out on by not buying my Near Future Report.” Which is hysterical for three reasons.
One, uh, didn’t everything have a meteoric rebound starting around April of 2020? Two, he’s not even saying he got in on these trades. “Workhorse Group skyrocketed as high as 1,887% from April to September of 2020.” And? What’s your point? If I buy your report, I, too, could miss out on a wild return like that? Three, isn’t hindsight always 20/20? Okay, good. Thought maybe I missed something.
These financial newsletter guys are the worst. Case in point, this Reddit review I found, which pretty much confirms my suspicions about Jeff Brown. “I paid $49 to join his newsletter yesterday. This morning, I get this hysterical email that I have to invest in this one biotech stock before tomorrow because it is going to go up 1,000% in a day or something like that. I make the mistake of listening to his presentation and (wait for it) he won’t tell you the name of the stock unless you subscribe to another newsletter for $2,500!” they wrote.
“And then I Google and find that he’s been talking about this since last year! If he is so amazing, why does he need to scam money out of potential investors by claiming a ‘time-sensitive investment opportunity’ that has been talked about since last year?” they added.
