John Wales is a global economist, investor and entrepreneur who has gained notoriety not only for calling nearly every major stock market move of the last 25 years… but also, for showing folks how to gain a huge advantage during the down times.
He predicted the dot-com crash of 2000 — and famously showed people how to make 13-times their money, not once, but TWICE in the aftermath.
In late October 2006, Wales warned fellow investors of a coming credit and housing bubble… long before the meltdown. He advised fellow investors how to short two companies about to drop — a bank specializing in condo loans and an insurer of mortgage-backed securities. These netted gains of 90% and 93.3% at a time when most investors were losing their shirts.
He predicted the housing crisis of 2008 — publicly stated Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and General Motors would all go bankrupt (they did) — and even showed people how to capture nearly 300% gains.
He recommended buying resource stocks amidst the crisis, which went up as high as 914%.
He recommended gold when it was $270 per ounce (now trading at around $1,400 an ounce, off its high of almost $1,900 per ounce).
Then there was the financial crisis in Asia in the 1990s.
Wales showed the world — even those right here in America who had exposure to these crashing markets — how to capture a 28-to-1 return… a 10-to-1 return… a 41-to-1 return… and even a massive 59-to-1 return.
To give you an idea of what these kinds of gains did, realize $5,000 invested in each one turns into a life changing $670,000.
All this smack in the middle of a market collapse!
It’s safe to say that there’s probably not another American alive today who knows more about stock market downturns — and how to prepare for them — than John Wales.
