The first and most important rule of investing is, in our view, the most obvious:
Investing always involves the risk of loss.
Paradoxically, investing is often most risky when it appears safest. This lesson of history led us to adopt a rather unconventional strategy – a contrarian approach to investing. We believe our approach has great merit, based upon our reading of history of our own track record to date. But as you surely have heard before, the past isn't necessarily a guide to the future. No matter how well we do our job, no matter how much research we conduct, no matter how promising the opportunity, or certain our analyst... you cannot escape the fact that every investment opportunity (and particularly in stocks) comes with the risk of a loss. These risks are part of the reason why great investment ideas are rare and incredibly valuable. You should understand why a business – like ours – would be willing to share investment ideas with you and under what terms. We've prepared this document to help you understand exactly why we publish our best investment ideas (instead of simply investing in them or managing a hedge fund or other investment pool). It will give you insight into the specific conflict of interest we face as publishers and describe how we collect our track records. It will describe our posture in regards to guarantees and refunds. It will explain the regulatory and legal framework that governs how we operate and perhaps most important, it will set the stage for a long and happy business relationship. We've been successful in this business because we've always been dedicated to serving our subscribers by only publishing materials we'd want our own families to read and follow, by always being completely transparent about the utility of our products (track records), and by always considering how we'd want to be treated if the roles were reversed. If you'll take the time to read this document, we believe you will be far more likely to succeed using our materials. You will know more about our approach to serving investors. You'll know more about the limits of what we can help you achieve. And most of all, you will know a lot more about the risks you inevitably face as an investor.
The first thing to know about Empire Financial Research is that we are NOT money managers, brokers, or fiduciaries of any kind.
Our published work is NOT a low-price replacement for an experienced money manager, broker, or investment advisor. Instead, Empire Financial Research is a publishing company and the indicators, strategies, reports, articles, and all other features of our products are provided for informational and educational purposes only. Under no circumstances should you construe anything that appears in our newsletters, reports, or on our website as personalized investment advice. Our recommendations and analysis are based on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, current events, interviews, corporate press releases, and what we've learned as financial journalists. It may contain errors, and you shouldn't make any investment decision based solely on what you read here. If you are not an experienced investor, we urge you to get as much education as possible and to consult a licensed individual advisor before making investments of any kind. The regulatory regime for investment advisors and money managers makes it difficult (if not impossible) to serve both the general public and individuals. We have chosen to provide our research to the general public for a number of good reasons. For one, we know that Wall Street has enjoyed a dramatic advantage over the average investor for decades. And we want to level the playing field as much as possible. But the most important reason for serving the general public relates to something called the "prudent man" rule. Historically, the best investment opportunities have arisen amid circumstances most investors believed were risky. For example, opportunities to buy large-cap U.S. stocks at attractive prices have occurred almost exclusively during periods of great economic uncertainty. Recently such opportunities arose in 1987, 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2008. We are confident that such opportunities will occur again. Excessive greed and fear are the emotions that drive the public markets. Likewise, individual securities often trade at the most attractive prices when serious problems arise in a given business. We call these company-specific problems "warts." However, precisely because most investors are repulsed by such securities, investors willing to study them can produce large investment returns. We seek to take advantage of these opportunities for the benefit of our subscribers. As I'll explain later, our firm does not own any stocks, nor do we allow our investment analysts to own the stocks they recommend for our subscribers. Investment fiduciaries are often forbidden by regulations – most notably the so-called "prudent man" rule – from taking a contrarian approach like ours with a majority of their investments. These regulations date back to 1830 (though the rules have been significantly revised over the years). The rule boils down to a simple concept: Fiduciaries have an obligation to avoid taking investment risks that are contrary to the public's opinion. Individual investment managers with fiduciary obligations are legally required "to observe how men of prudence, discretion, and intelligence manage their own affairs." These rules essentially require registered investment advisors to invest alongside the public. They are forbidden, for example, from shorting stocks. This makes taking a truly contrarian approach nearly impossible because of regulatory and legal liability concerns.
Our company's primary approach to investing is based in contrarian strategies that may be significantly at odds with conventional wisdom and mainstream approaches to capital management.
That means many of the recommendations and strategies we cover in our publications will seem risky and controversial. It also helps explain why investors and media outlets that follow a more conventional "prudent man" approach frequently criticize our work and even accuse us of malfeasance. We urge you to consider our investment ideas carefully and to follow all of our strategies for risk management, especially position sizing and trailing stop losses. But most of all... we urge you to educate yourself about the philosophy that underlies our approach. If you will take the time to understand why we believe our strategies are likely to work, you can acquire the emotional fortitude and the discipline necessary to successfully apply our strategies. If you lack this understanding, you are very unlikely to succeed.
We are NOT responsible for your results – good or bad. We will NOT take credit (in the form of a percentage of your profits) for your success. Nor are we legally liable for any of your losses.
Subscribing to our newsletters will not make us responsible for your investment results. You will bear the full burden of the risks you decide to take. As we will regularly remind you: It's your money, and it's your responsibility. Our lack of fiduciary responsibility might cause you to second-guess our work. That's fine with us. We urge you to be critical and skeptical of all investment recommendations, no matter the source. But the simple fact is, if we were subject to legal liability for any losses resulting from our recommendations, our business would disappear overnight. No investment manager could withstand the risk of investment losses without also reaping the rewards of investment gains. Being free of these fiduciary obligations allows us the freedom to operate and to provide information about investment strategies (contrarian) and investment ideas that others are not able or willing to cover. Therefore, when you use our services remember to always limit your position sizes to an amount you can easily afford to lose. (We'd recommend the same advice when making an investment based on a recommendation from any source.)
A very important warning: We make mistakes.
We are human. We make mistakes. Sometimes our ideas and hunches turn out to be wrong (though not often, we're pleased to report). More frequently our "timing" is off. That is, an investment theme we expect to develop only does so in a timeframe that makes it difficult to earn a profit. And of course, there are also times when we are misled, despite reasonable efforts to confirm our sources. Based on the large number of customers we have acquired and retained and based on our own internally kept track records (more on these below), we feel confident that on the whole our work is extremely reliable. We doubt you'll find work by any other publisher that is as detailed and well-sourced. Nevertheless, it is important for you to realize that no published materials anywhere – not even the New York Times – is regularly published without at least occasional mistakes. When we make mistakes, you can count on us to correct them as quickly and honestly as possible. It is very unlikely that you will become wealthy from trading stocks, bonds, options, commodities, or other financial instruments (though it does happen from time to time). The most realistic way to become wealthy, in our view, is by building your own business or by playing a key role in the creation or the significant growth of an existing one. Our newsletters are intended to serve people who are in the process of wealth building by helping them manage their savings or people who already have significant amounts of savings earn a higher average return.
Why not simply manage money or keep our ideas for ourselves?
Most knowledgeable investors are willing to share their ideas with other investors in exchange for a fee. Sharing ideas doesn't reduce returns and can generate substantial amounts of income for good investors. Fees for top-quality money managers are high – especially for investors who are able to pursue contrarian strategies. Hedge funds, for example, typically charge 2% of assets under management and 20% of profits. Fees generated by successful hedge funds can reach into billions of dollars. While we have considered for many years launching such a fund, the regulatory burden and the cost of raising large amounts of capital, are significant. On the other hand, thanks to the First Amendment, there are relatively few legal burdens to publishing and thanks to the Internet, there are few capital constraints. These low barriers to entry allowed us to achieve a significant amount of success very quickly. We surpassed 100,000 subscribers within two years of operations. ''We don't believe such rapid success would have been possible if we'd attempted to build a money-management business. You should know that we attribute our success to three simple factors: our contrarian approach (we cover valuable opportunities others won't or can't), the number of very highly skilled analysts we were able to recruit and retain (primarily by offering a work environment that promised lucrative rewards for success with almost no conflicts of interest), and the integrity with which we have always approached our endeavors. Our path to success was set in motion by a simple choice: We decided to publish our investment ideas to millions of people around the world at a relatively low price rather than sharing our ideas exclusively with a very small group of wealthy investors at a high price. In the long term, for this approach to be successful, we must continue to provide large numbers of subscribers with unique, contrarian investment advice that is reliable and profitable.
We have structured our business in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest, but a significant potential conflict of interest still exists.
We believe everyone involved in finance has some conflict of interest. Hedge-fund managers, for example have a tremendous incentive to produce short-term capital gains so that they can generate fee income (20% of gains). This might lead them to take short-term risks at the expense of safer and more lucrative long-term gains. This conflict will exist even if the manager keeps all or most of his wealth inside the fund. It also helps explain why successful hedge-fund managers often end up earning far more from running the fund than their clients make investing in it. We generate our profits exclusively from the subscriptions we sell. This is deliberate. We do not want our subscribers to wonder whether we were recommending a company or an investment because the company or investment sponsor advertised with us. This has been one of the ways that we have steered clear of potential conflicts of interest but it's not the only one.
We don't accept compensation (or favors) from the companies we recommend as investments.
As you may know, many newsletter companies do not adhere to the same guidelines that we do. Some accept compensation from the companies whose stock they recommend and cover. We could argue that our policies described above leave us completely free of any conflict of interest. Other financial publishers will surely make such a claim. But it's not completely true. We have made efforts to structure our business so that we don't have any conflicts of interest. But despite our efforts, we do have a conflict. It's a conflict that's systemic throughout the investment community and complex to explain... so bear with me. The investing public has the unfailing tendency to rush into the worst possible investments at the worst possible time. We call this the "paradox" of finance. People can figure out when it's a good time to buy groceries – when they're on sale. But when it comes to securities, people tend to ignore them when they're cheap and stampede into them when they're expensive. For example... you'll remember that in 1999 and 2000 investors all rushed into tech stocks... at the wrong time. Then, they rushed into the housing market... at the wrong time. We believe this irrational behavior is linked to the emotional need many people have to conform. It's the same psychology, essentially, that powers the fashion business. We can't say what investment passion will strike the crowd next, but we know, when it occurs, it would prove lucrative for us to publish information confirming the crowd's passions... even when it involves making bad or dangerous recommendations. That is, during bubble periods, we have a financial incentive to help inflate the bubble because that's the kind of information the public will demand in those periods. This conflict – the temptation to sell the public the information it wants even if it's not in their interests – isn't unique to financial publishers. All forms of media face this conflict. That's why, at market tops, you will commonly find magazine covers and other types of mainstream media embracing the bubble. We attempt to balance this conflict by focusing on proven contrarian approaches to investing. We further advocate strict risk-management strategies that have so far largely prevented us from being caught up in investment manias. You should also know that the structure of our company and the factors that drive our profits help minimize the financial temptation to "go with the crowd" in the short term. Essentially all of our profits are derived from renewal sales or additional sales to existing customers. We typically market to new customers at a loss. This allows us to reach more potential subscribers and, over time, to build a bigger business. It also means that unless our subscribers choose to renew in large numbers, we are unlikely to succeed at our business. This helps to align our interests with the long-term success of our subscribers. We believe we are unique in this long-term strategy among all financial publishers. Just to be clear, though, no financial business is totally immune to all conflicts of interest – just as no investment is totally free of risk. No matter how dedicated our executives are to the success and wellbeing of our subscribers, at least some of our employees will be motivated by a need to sell, to motivate, to persuade, and to captivate our subscribers to produce revenue for our business. It is difficult to sell anything without embracing, at least somewhat, the mood of the public. Thus, we urge all subscribers to reference our most recent newsletters and to consult with an individual advisor before making any investments. Likewise, we would urge you not to rely – at all – on any of our marketing pieces or sales letters when making your investment decisions. These publications are designed to sell our research products and thus, by design, lack the more fully balanced analysis of the risks and rewards of any particular investment idea that you will find in our newsletters.
We offer one of the most generous refund policies in our industry... and perhaps in the world.
More so than any other business we can name, we believe in "parting as friends." If we cannot meet your expectations, you should always have the opportunity to call us on the phone, tell us how we've failed you, and get your money back. That is why, since the first day of our operations, we have always maintained in-house customer service, hiring bright, and dedicated young people and employing them in our headquarter buildings. They work in the same building as our senior executives and our owners. Whatever the purpose of your call, it will be answered promptly and handled professionally. Our wait times are normally less than one minute. And our average call duration is less than five minutes. We are open for business (on the phone for customer service) from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. Eastern time. Our phone number is: 1-800-961-2618.
Some cynical readers have suggested that we offer such generous refunds because we don't really believe in (or stand behind) our work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our guarantees reflect the complete confidence we have in our products. Our goal is to never publish anything our founder wouldn't want his own parents to read and to follow. Our basic philosophy is that we have to earn your business, which is why we offer you the chance to ask for your money back. This "we haven't earned it yet" attitude encourages us to continue to do great work for you. But that's not all we promise. To encourage subscribers to try our products, we further provide complete refunds on virtually all of our entry-level products for periods of up to 30 days (our offers vary). We only pay sales commissions on a post-refund basis. Thus our employees have no financial incentive to mislead anyone. Furthermore, our potential customers are encouraged to try our products with zero financial risk. If we can't deliver on our promises, they're entitled to all of their money back on virtually every entry-level product we offer. You can "get to know us" without taking a single penny of risk. We want you to be completely satisfied with your decision. If you're not, our Baltimore-based customer service team will promptly refund the full amount of your purchase if you call within 30 days. ...Subscribers may also request a sample issue (containing out-of-date information from a previously published newsletter) from our customer service team to evaluate for themselves, at any time, the value of these products. The policies – offering plenty of no-risk-whatsoever opportunities in conjunction with asking customers to make a small commitment on certain products – provides a reasonable balance between the rights we have as a content provider with valuable information and those of our customers to avoid making a purchase that's doesn't match their investing styles or interests. From time to time, we will make offers that don't include the option to receive a refund. A skeptical reader might suggest that we are trying to trick people into subscribing to a service that isn't right for them so we can make more money. But the exact opposite is true. We want to limit the sales of that particular offer to only the most serious readers. We want to make sure that the subscribers to these offers intend to subscribe and stick with that particular newsletter. In the past we've had people subscribe just to read about the situation we were describing in the marketing offer. They would download all of the information and then call us for a refund. That is unfair to the other subscribers and to us as publishers. Those aren't the kind of subscribers we are looking for. We want subscribers that understand the value of our work and are committing to being a long-term customer of our business. So, we use the "no refund" offer exclusively for situations where we want to limit the sales to subscribers who are serious about buying the information and remaining subscribers. If a customer buys one of these offers and finds out that they can't act on the advice our Customer Service team will find a way to apply the money from that purchase to another newsletter via our credit system. We cannot imagine a reasonable person being disappointed in our willingness to provide a refund, a subscription extension, or a credit. Our policy – of always being willing to "part as friends" – has kept our business on the right side of nearly every potential conflict. No matter which one of our products you purchase the terms of the offer are always clearly described on the order form. We strive to make sure every customer understands exactly what they are buying, how much it costs and what their options are if they choose not to keep their subscription. While we know it is impossible to avoid every potential misunderstanding and to make everyone happy all of the time, we're proud of our ability to consistently please so many of our customers. We have among the industry's highest renewal rates and, as far as we know, the largest base of lifetime customers. Our company's most important asset is our reputation for trustworthiness, and maintaining that reputation is our highest goal.
Why our business model is almost exclusively based on subscriptions.
You may have noticed that the vast majority of our products are offered only via subscription. To protect free speech and to encourage public debate and the exchange of ideas, the SEC has carved out what's known as the "publisher's exemption" from certain securities laws. This exemption doesn't mean that we can write whatever we want. It means that we aren't required to be registered with the SEC. And it means that we can write about things registered advisors would find difficult to get through their compliance departments – such as extremely contrarian advice. To qualify for this exemption from securities licensing (and avoid the "prudent man" restrictions we mentioned earlier), we must be a "bona fide" publisher, which under law is defined as a publisher who offers commentary to the public on a regular schedule via subscription. The SEC frowns on "tip sheets" that sell one-off reports. These policies help create accountability for publishers. If we aren't able to live up to our promises and the expectations we set, our clients have the right to demand a refund. And that's why we've always had such a liberal and generous refund policy. We have no problem proving our value to subscribers. It's exactly how we'd want to be treated if our roles were reversed.
Newsletter track records: Why they're not like mutual funds.
The mutual-fund industry has become, like the wine trade, addicted to extremely simplistic, almost ritualistic, evaluations of quality. A wine is a 96. That's great. A fund is five-star. That's great. What's your newsletter's rank? The problem is, unlike a mutual fund, newsletter track records have no precise starting point or ending point. The size (number of positions) grows over time, as the letter adds recommendations. Thus, a newsletter can't really be compared – directly – to either a mutual fund or a stock index. The closest comparison we can manage for newsletters is to give you the average annual return of each recommendation made and the average holding period. This gives you the annualized return – which is an approximation of what you might have earned following the advice of a newsletter. It's far from precise. It doesn't account for taxes (if you're investing in a taxable account) or "slippage" – which is the price you paid when you bought versus the recommended price and the price you got when you sold versus the recommended sell price. We can only track prices that are available in the market at the time we publish. Occasionally, someone will complain that our track records aren't reliable because they don't reflect actual investment returns. It's important for you to realize that your results might be better or worse than the results we represent. We simply have no way to know what your entry price was, what your exit price was, or what taxes you've paid (or will eventually pay). We strive to make our track records accurate. They may, or they may not, be representative of your actual results. Now... here's the problem with track records and the reliance some investors place on them. There's not a single mutual fund in the world whose long-term track record is great (10 years with double-digit annual returns) that doesn't also have periods of terrible investment performance. Likewise in the newsletter business, we have some analysts and some strategies that excel during bull markets. Some that excel during bear markets. And some that can produce very consistent (but not world-beating) results
Nearly all of our products are based on a fundamental approach to securities analysis. A few offer advice based on the market's technical outlook. We've developed a preference for fundamental factors (like the underlying quality of the business and a rational evaluation of the stock's intrinsic value versus its market price) because we've found these qualitative measures to be the most reliable. The most important thing that you need to understand is that no single investment strategy (or investment analyst) can provide consistently market-beating advice at all times and in all markets. Our analysts use a variety of contrarian-based strategies. Our efforts are designed to allow you to use the right tools in the right market conditions. All of our publications maintain a track record. Virtually all of them post their open positions on our website and almost all of them are also printed with each issue. All of the back issues are available on our website. You can see for yourself how each analyst has done with every recommendation he or she has ever made. You can see how each of our products has performed in the past, during various market conditions. All of these things we do to inform our readers about the products that they've purchased and represent our efforts to be transparent. Please understand: The best thing an investment research product can bring you is a good idea that's right for the market conditions and offers an overwhelming potential for success versus a moderate level of risk. No investment newsletter is likely to make you rich overnight, although it's possible to see huge profits in volatile industries. Most of your success as an investor will be determined by how much capital you have to invest, how much time you have to invest, and your asset allocation, that is, how much of your capital you have in stocks versus bonds and cash. If you want to be successful as an investor, our best advice is to become an expert at avoiding risk. Simply putting your money into high-quality stocks and bonds is very likely your best bet.
Another way we try to avoid conflicts: Our analysts do not buy the stocks they recommend to you.
Our company policy forbids our investment analysts and their staff from owning any stock they recommend. In addition, other employees of Stansberry Research may not purchase recommended securities until 24 hours after the recommendations have been distributed to our subscribers on the Internet. Some subscribers profess to be disappointed that our analysts don't "eat their own cooking" or have any "skin in the game" since they aren't allowed to own even a token amount of the stocks they've recommended. That opinion is naïve. Nothing is more important to the long-term success of an analyst in our industry than a reputation for producing excellent results for their subscribers. An analyst's standing in our company and our industry is measured by his or her ability to produce a winning track record using a given strategy. This is real skin in the game – far more skin than simply investing a few thousand dollars in a particular stock. This position also allows our analysts to be genuinely independent. That guarantees us that the only reason they have to recommend a stock, to re-recommend a stock, or to recommend selling a stock is that they fully and sincerely believe that's the best course of action. Without this independence the possibilities of a conflict of interest are infinite.
The following contains facts, figures, explanations, annotations, full testimonials, and other resources about the promotional piece you just viewed.
In short, these are the resources used to put together the promotion you clicked on. As you have seen, we publish testimonials in our promotions. All of those testimonials are the words of real subscribers that we received in real letters, emails, and other feedback. If a subscriber sends a testimonial we'd like to use in a promotion, a member of our Customer Service team calls them to verify their claims. We do not make these results up, and we do not pay or compensate subscribers for their testimonials.
When we receive testimonials from a subscriber, we veil their last name and any identifying details to protect their privacy and identity. During the verification process we'll often ask for particulars about the subscriber's results, including:
- How much money he or she invested,
- How long he or she was in the trade,
- How much money he or she made in dollars terms and as a percentage of the original investment, and
- What portion of his or her overall portfolio was put into the trade.
We ask these questions because we want a clearer picture of the results that the subscriber attained so that we can pass that information on to you. If the subscriber does not give us this information, then we cannot publish it. We publish this information to let you know that these results are possible and have been achieved by real people after reading our research.
Past results like these are no guarantee of any future result.
We wouldn't recommend anticipating such outstanding results with your own investments. Yes, you could have results like these – or perhaps even better. But, it's simply not prudent to assume you will immediately make large investment returns. Instead, we urge you to read our work carefully, to follow our risk management strategies conscientiously, and to invest cautiously while setting expectations that are based around our long-term performance averages.

In the following presentation you'll see the man who already appeared twice on CBS' 60 Minutes to blow the lid off of two huge financial stories... unravel the details of a disruptive system that has the potential to stop inflation in its tracks, put an end to war, improve the American economy, and add millions of jobs to the U.S. workforce.
Whitney Tilson is a former hedge fund manager who has met with three Presidents.. has attended Warren Buffett's last 25 Berkshire Hathaway annual meetings in Omaha... and has spoken at the country's most prestigious business schools, such as Harvard, Columbia, and Wharton.
As a former hedge fund manager, he bought many of the best-performing stocks in history – including Netflix, Apple, and Amazon – long before they were household names.
In fact, CNBC once nicknamed him "The Prophet" for his uncanny ability to accurately predict future market moves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHaRBt_29iA&ab_channel=EmpireFinancialResearch
Wall Street legend who broke two major stories on 60 Minutes gives you the details of an inevitable disruption bigger than the internet...
Governments around the world are rushing to mandate it.
Hi, I'm Whitney Tilson, former hedge fund manager and the founder and CEO of Empire Financial Research.
With inflation at its highest levels in 40 years...
And with the average American spending an extra $450 every month just to get by…
But it didn't matter that we were in the midst of a bear market.
Since then, Amazon has grown as high as a whopping 64024%... and Apple skyrocketed over 50,000%

I also recommended Ross (7,968% gains), AutoZone (8,311% gains), and Tractor Supply (29,973% gains) just before, or during market crashes. https://beaconstreetservices.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ELD/pages/240713784/Whitney+Tilson+Claims
Back in the mid 90s, the internet trend was just starting…so I put all of my wife's retirement savings, a good $20,000 into the stock. I ended up making $100,000 in less than a year.
Since the time I started pounding the table on this massive trend, Tesla shot up by more than 1,200%
And shares of BYD, which were going nowhere for a decade, skyrocketed by more than 815%.
I even talked about how Ford – a company many considered over the hill – was getting into the EV space.
And guess what? Since then, the stock has soared by 494%
March 2020 to Jan 2022 https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/F/
Today we are on the cusp of a once-in-a-century breakthrough
Trend is Electric Power Generation
Over the course of the next few minutes, I'm going to show you how this breakthrough is about to deliver a knockout punch to a $3.4 trillion industry, and completely disrupt $100 trillion in global assets.
You'll see how this breakthrough could help you put anywhere between $1,050 and $2,585 back in your pocket. https://www.renewableenergyworld.com/solar/new-research-shows-transitioning-to-100-clean-energy-could-save-us-households-321b/#gref
You'll understand why the biggest companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, Walmart, Microsoft, and Amazon bare rushing to adopt this trend.
And the last time you were involved in something of this magnitude, it resulted in a $10 trillion wealth tsunami.
On the cover of the December 25, 2006 edition of Time magazine was a surprise for every American. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_(Time_Person_of_the_Year)#:~:text=%22You%22%20was%20the%20official%20choice,other%20websites%20featuring%20user%20contribution.

For seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for beating the pros at their own game, Time's Person of the Year for 2006 is you."
Time summed it up perfectly, because “seizing the reins” was exactly what you did. Americans from New York City to Los Angeles and everywhere in between invaded the turf of the powerful global media and beat them at their own game.
By contributing to the internet – writing blogs, posting videos, and recording podcasts – you and millions like you helped "decentralize" information.
And it launched a massive market revolution.
Shortly after that issue of Time hit the newsstands, a slew of tech stocks went on unprecedented runs as high as...

Elon Musk's Next Re-Invention Could Directly Impact Businesses Worth $85 Trillion
The world runs on Electricity and motors and energy. The GDP of the world is 85 Trillion. https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.MKTP.CD
In August 2006, Elon Musk published his Master Plan Part I
In short, the plan boiled down to this https://www.tesla.com/blog/secret-tesla-motors-master-plan-just-between-you-and-me
In 2016, he followed it up with Master Plan Part II which in short goes this way https://www.tesla.com/blog/master-plan-part-deux
So far, he's delivered almost everything he promised in part I and II of his Master Plan. And now h’s about to unleash Part III https://mashable.com/article/elon-musk-tesla-master-plan-3
Together, these three technologies form a unique system that I call "SWaB
Stands for “Solar, Wind, and Battery”
In August, Musk said Masterplan 3 is all about scaling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnXy8c0GOpE&t=232s see at 21.55 to 22.06
But first, I want you to know that unlike solar energy and wind energy, SWaB promises 24-hour energy. https://www.earthday.org/24-hour-solar-power/
Right now, some Americans pay as much as 33 cents per kilowatt hour ("kWh") for their electricity needs https://www.electricchoice.com/electricity-prices-by-state/
With SWaB, the price could be as low as 3 cents/kWh https://www.theenergymix.com/2020/11/30/the-rise-of-swb-seba-says-solar-wind-batteries-can-deliver-100-re-by-2030-make-new-fossil-investment-irrational/

Back in 2017, South Australia (one of the four largest states in Australia) was reeling from a series of power outages https://www.afr.com/politics/sa-power-crisis-may-spread-to-nsw-as-heatwave-hits-20170209-gu99ez
Lyndon Rive, then head of Tesla's battery division, boasted in Financial Review that a 100-megawatt Tesla megapack could solve South Australia's problem in less than 100 days.
An Australian businessman named Mike Cannon-Brookes tweeted... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Cannon-Brookes
The tweet exchange set off a media frenzy, and soon, the Australian Prime Minister got involved. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/840410357122314240
Long story short, Tesla signed the agreement in September 2017 with an Australian energy company, and, 60 days later, the largest battery pack in the world was ready at a total cost of $172 million
When the next outage happened, the SWaB system kicked into action in less than a quarter of a second https://www.nsenergybusiness.com/projects/hornsdale-power-reserve-expansion-australia/
Even better, it took just over two years for the system to recover the entire cost of construction and installation. https://reneweconomy.com.au/tesla-big-battery-recoups-cost-of-construction-in-little-over-two-years-25265/
Soon, other Australian states signed up for SWaB. https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-megapack-installation-wallgrove-battery/
In Europe, SWaB systems are cropping up in Lithuania, Spain, Belgium, Ireland, the UK, and Germany https://www.hivepower.tech/blog/top-battery-storage-projects-in-europe-to-look-out-for-in-2022
Back home in the U.S., PG&E, the largest utility company in America, partnered with Tesla to create the biggest SWaB system in the world south of San Francisco. https://www.montereycountyweekly.com/blogs/news_blog/pg-es-new-tesla-powered-system-gives-moss-landing-another-battery-storage-boost/article_c6233e3e-bf41-11ec-b500-f3deb6b9ab0e.html
In April, Nevada launched a SWaB system near Las Vegas. https://cleantechnica.com/2022/04/16/teslas-giant-solar-energy-facility-near-las-vegas-has-528084-solar-panels/
There’s a fully functioning SWaB system in Alaska, just outside of Anchorage https://electrek.co/2022/03/01/tesla-deploys-big-37-megapack-project-alaska-replace-gas-turbines/
In January, President Biden issued an Executive Order that calls for an economy that relies on “SWaB” which could create millions of new jobs. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/02/01/2021-02177/tackling-the-climate-crisis-at-home-and-abroad
Section 207 of this Executive Order authorizes doubling of offshore wind production by 2030. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/02/01/2021-02177/tackling-the-climate-crisis-at-home-and-abroad
And Section 209 calls for the elimination of additional fossil fuel subsidies.
In June, Biden ordered emergency measures to boost crucial supplies to U.S. solar manufacturers. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/02/01/2021-02177/tackling-the-climate-crisis-at-home-and-abroad
In July the administration approved a two-year exemption on solar panel imports https://www.vietnam-briefing.com/news/us-exempts-tariffs-vietnamese-solar-panels-for-2-years-what-to-expect.html/
All told, a whopping $555 billion have been budgeted for “SWaB” initiatives https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/28/biden-spending-framework-includes-555-billion-in-climate-incentives.html
In 2010, when there was not a single mass-produced electric car in the US he predicted that by 2020 the market would offer unsubsidized EVs in the 200-mile range cheaper than the median cost of cars in USA https://www.energy.gov/timeline/timeline-history-electric-car
In 2014, when the cost of a lithium battery was over $500/KWh, he predicted that the cost would fall below $200/kwh by 2020. https://www.vice.com/en/article/9aknpv/how-solar-power-could-slay-the-fossil-fuel-empire-by-2030
More than 100 countries have started depending on SWaB for energy.
And many of them rely on SWaB for over 25% of their energy needs.
For example, think about the problems facing us right now...
Inflation, war, unemployment… SWaB could help to stop them. And no, it’s not just me saying this

While it's by no means a brand-new technology, solar was too expensive for widespread use. http://environment.umn.edu/education/susteducation/pathways-to-renewable-energy/why-arent-solar-panels-everywhere/
Even as recently as 2009, solar was far more expensive than every other source of energy: natural gas, nuclear, wind, you name it... http://environment.umn.edu/education/susteducation/pathways-to-renewable-energy/why-arent-solar-panels-everywhere/
But in the last decade, in a bid to "go green," giant corporations like Google and Apple started shifting to solar. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20161013-why-apple-and-google-are-going-solar
Google even created a multimillion-dollar solar fund to help finance solar installations. https://www.utilitydive.com/news/google-invests-100m-in-sunpower-rooftop-solar-fund/255043/
And in less than a decade, solar has become the least expensive form of energy https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2021/07/renewables-cheapest-energy-source/#:~:text=The%20report%20follows%20the%20International,major%20countries%2C%20the%20outlook%20found.
Between 2009 and 2019, solar prices crashed by a whopping 89%.. https://ourworldindata.org/cheap-renewables-growth;
Even the International Energy Agency – which has always been skeptical about widescale solar energy – agrees Solar is the cheapest. https://energy.wisc.edu/news/solar-now-cheapest-electricity-history-confirms-iea
And the high cost of battery storage nullified the falling price of solar power generation. https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/8/9/20767886/renewable-energy-storage-cost-electricity
Like solar, wind energy is not a new technology. The first windmill to generate electricity was installed over 125 years ago.  https://www.renewableenergyworld.com/storage/history-of-wind-turbines/#gref
A decade ago, the average wind turbine in the U.S. was about 24 stories tall. Today, the tallest wind turbines reach up to 75 stories (more than three times taller)OK.  https://www.asme.org/topics-resources/content/6-advances-in-wind-energy
The largest rotors now span 720 feet and generate 45% more energy than before. Just one full spin of the blades can power an American home for two days https://newatlas.com/energy/vineyard-wind-ge-haliade-x-turbine/
In the ocean off of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts are a cluster of wind turbines
Between 2009 and 2019, the price of wind energy dropped almost 70% https://ourworldindata.org/cheap-renewables-growth
Since 2010, the cost of batteries has dropped by 87%. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM6yaaCDpZw&t=707s
at the 48.56 mark
Battery storage for utilities has risen 10-fold in the past 6-7 years. . Especially in the last three years. https://insideclimatenews.org/news/31032022/inside-clean-energy-battery-storage/
You see, In spite of the massive increase in usage, it’s still than 1% of the battery storage that the U.S. needs.
The first line says we need 930 GW of storage power> 930 GW is 930000 MW Currently (2021) we are at 3508 MW.
so 3508x100 divided by 930000 That's 0.37% .

Next, they built an algorithmic system called Energy U Curve to figure out the perfect balance between production and storage.
The objective of the Energy U curve was to reach the minimum cost for production and storage combined, to deliver round-the-clock electricity throughout the year. https://www.rethinkx.com/energy#:~:text=The%20Clean%20Energy%20U%2DCurve,capacity%20in%20any%20given%20region.
That's less than 1% of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years... For the entire country to be 100% powered by wind and solar energy.
It could put as much as $2,500 back into the pockets of every American household every year. https://www.renewableenergyworld.com/solar/new-research-shows-transitioning-to-100-clean-energy-could-save-us-households-321b/#gref

That’s enough to power 20,000 homes on a hot summer day https://www.betterhomelab.com/how-many-homes-can-1-mw-power/
This SWaB complex is already registered with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which oversees power to more than 26 million customers.
Until now, Tesla built SWaB complexes to help other companies generate, store, and consume energy.
Neoen PG&E, Vistra, Arevon
Other SWaB complexes are nearing completion in the UK, Dubai, Japan, and Hungary.
The goal of Texas Energy Ventures is to become an official electricity retailer.
Paper Tear "Tesla's overarching strategy here is effectively to become a giant distributor global utility." – Elon Musk
Tesla also has a deal with Hawaii to deploy one of the largest battery systems in the world to help make Hawaii 100% SWaB compliant.
This SWaB system is expected to save the island 1.6 million gallons of diesel fuel a year.
That's over $10 million saved every year at today's prices.
Average price of diesel in Havaii is $6.480 26 june 2022 https://gasprices.aaa.com/?state=HI
6.480 x 1.6million = 10.368
For larger states, the savings will likely be in the billions.
