InvesTech’s 40 Year Track Record

2007-09 Financial Crisis

2007-09 Financial Crisis: InvesTech warned in July of 2007 that Bear Market Warning Flags were piling up…. and proceeded to safely lead subscribers through the Great Recession, limiting losses to less than half of the market’s 57% decline.

Buying Opportunity of a lifetime

2007-09 Financial Crisis: In March 2009 –just 4 days after the bear market bottom– InvesTech boldly advised subscribers that we were “heading toward a buying opportunity of a lifetime!”

2000 Tech Bubble

2000 Tech Bubble: InvesTech made headlines when it defied Wall Street, and warned of one of the most important tops in history. Subscribers survived the 2000-02 Tech Bubble collapse with their portfolios almost entirely intact.

Bull market of the 90s

Decade-long bull market of the 1990s: While most economists and analysts were still forecasting another 12 months of recession ahead, InvesTech subscribers were able to get in at the beginning of the 1991 bull market.

Black Monday

1987 Crash – Black Monday: InvesTech moved investors to 100% cash just before the 1987 Crash, when stocks lost 25% of their value in a single day.
