Updates the Thomas Phelps classic 100 to 1 in the stock market. My favorite investing book of 2015 and highly recommended

Any thoughts on his newsletter? Is it worth the price of admission? ($49/year)

I ordered the newsletter after reading the book, but have not dove into it yet

I wonder if this dude has had a 100 bagger before. The best investor I know has a cost basis on Amazon of $3.

BTW, for those worried about cost of admission to try out this guy's newsletter service, most reputable newsletter publishers offer a money back guarantee. Agora is doing a 30 day guarantee, here. I've seen up to multi-year guarantees for some of my employer's services.

You're probably safe trying it out and just refunding if you don't like it.

Hi scott,
Have you read chris's book as yet? I quite like his ideas....im starting to fish around looking for quality businesses to keep/hold for forever and a day with great capital allocators at the helm.

Chris made some suggestions (like softbank), have you got any thoughts on quality companies to look for at the moment?  Thanks
Nick

I was reading bad reviews of the Agora newsletters so I am wary of them. But I would read Thomas Phelps book, it is very entertaining and it gives you more perspective of the past.

I will read the book. In terms of Agora, I was a longtime reader of Daily Reckoning, I also subscribed to a few of their newsletters over the years and was led into them by certain books ("Invest Like a Dealmaker", good book) all of Wiggins' and Bonner's books are IMHO highly entertaining and I agree with a lot of the core principles (i.e. you can't centrally plan an economy)

But know that the entire book -> newsletter chain is part of a marketing funnel using the tried-and-true "front-end-back-end" model. Every step sets up for an upsell to the next step (larger packages, larger ticket items) and once they get into actual "stock picks" they are about as good as any other service. Once you're at that point you're either into "black box" territory, where you will simply buy what the newsletter recos, or you are using them to garner ideas you will research independently, in which case, why do you need to subscribe to an ultra-premium options advisor at $2500/year for yet more ideas?

So in short, love the Agora crew, agree with a lot of their viewpoints, but grew tired of the incessant marketing upsells (and yes, they will rent your contact details out to other pitchmen)

I bought life-time subscription to Agora a while ago at a hefty discount at the suggestion of a friend. Most of their newsletters are worthless but I will make an exception for Chris Mayer's 100 baggers. He thinks like a value investor and shares good insights. I do my own research - but his newsletter is a good source of investment ideas and articles on investing.

At $49 a year, it is worth the price, imo. I will stay away from everything else.

I haven't read his book.
