Chris’ note: Today, we’re giving the floor to friend and colleague Teeka Tiwari. He’s a former hedge fund manager and Wall Street executive.
His experience has taught him that if you want to make a fortune in the stock market in a short time, you have to invest in shares in companies before they go public.
Don’t know where to begin? Read on as Teeka shares the three traits to target when selecting pre-IPO companies for a shot at crypto-like gains in as little as 24 hours.
Tomorrow night, he’s holding an emergency briefing for his next pre-IPO deal. And as he explains below, this opportunity could be gone in a matter of hours after his announcement. That’s why Teeka canceled a getaway to Hawaii to host his briefing…
To make a fortune in the stock market without waiting 30-40 years, you must get into a startup that goes from virtually zero to a multibillion-dollar valuation.
We call these early-stage companies pre-IPOs.
An IPO – or initial public offering – is when a company lists its shares on a public exchange like the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or Nasdaq. A pre-IPO is when a company is still private – when you can buy its shares before it lists on an exchange.
Mega-successes Google (GOOG), Twitter (TWTR), Facebook (FB), Uber (UBER), Airbnb (ABNB), Coinbase (COIN), and Zoom (ZM) were all pre-IPOs at some point.
We need to hunt for companies like these in the private markets… because by the time they IPO, they’re often worth more than $100 billion each.
In my experience, no other stock market phenomenon creates more overnight millionaires than catching a pre-IPO on the cusp of going public. For example…
Early investors in Google’s pre-IPO had a chance to make 36,166% in its first 24 hours of trading.
Early investors in Twitter’s pre-IPO had a chance to make 110,614% in its first 24 hours of trading.
Early investors in Facebook’s pre-IPO had a chance to make 121,822% in its first 24 hours of trading.
Companies like these can help you achieve true financial freedom in the first 24 hours they go public… But they’re not easy to find.
If you’re looking to reach true financial freedom in the public markets, I have some bad news for you…
It could take you decades… I’m talking 30, 40, even 50 years.
Outside the crypto market, one of the only ways to make life-changing gains quickly is through pre-IPO companies.
In the pre-IPO market, early investors can get into companies for pennies per share and sell them for tens of dollars.
And if you want a shot at these life-changing gains in as little as the first 24 hours of trading… you need to target pre-IPOs with these three traits:
Poised to disrupt a massive industry: Just as Uber completely disrupted the taxi industry… Airbnb disrupted the entire hospitality industry… and Facebook completely reinvented social media… these pre-IPO companies will be looking to unmake an entire industry.
Still in their early stages: This means each private company’s value is less than $1 billion. So its biggest gains… the kind that create true financial freedom… are still to come.
Have IPOs on the horizon: This is the real secret to making life-changing gains. You must be able to get into each deal before it goes public.
Here’s how powerful this formula can be…
The estimated value of the global taxi market is $160 billion. That’s massive. But that didn’t stop a tiny pre-IPO called Uber from taking it on.
Before Uber, if you wanted to hail a ride, you had to wait on the streets and hope a taxi would drive by… or call a local taxi company and deal with the rude dispatcher.
Uber was set up for success because it went after this massive, entrenched industry. It used technology and an innovative ridesharing business model to unmake the traditional taxi model.
Requesting a driver isn’t complicated. Uber’s app is easy to navigate. All you need is a smartphone, and you can get a ride almost anywhere in the world.
By 2017, Uber had reduced traditional taxis to just 4% of the total U.S. market share.
Today, it’s reduced the U.S. market share of traditional taxis to less than 1%.
In 2011, Uber’s valuation was $49 million. It went public in 2019 at a $75 billion valuation. That’s a return of 152,000%… enough to turn a $1,000 initial investment into as much as $1.5 million within the first 24 hours of trading.
And look at Airbnb…
Like Uber, it disrupted a massive, entrenched industry. And you can use Airbnb’s app to quickly, conveniently, and cheaply secure lodging almost anywhere in the world.
By 2020, Airbnb accounted for about 20% of the $87 billion vacation rental market, with an estimated 7 million bedrooms listed for rental. In comparison, the entire hotel industry has about an estimated 14 million bedrooms and a market share of 40%.
In 2010, Airbnb’s valuation was $60 million. It went public last year with an $86.5 billion market cap. That’s a 144,000% increase… enough to see $1,000 turn into as much as $1.4 million within the first 24 hours of trading.
That’s the power of getting into a pre-IPO deal that’s in the business of disrupting a massive industry.
I’ve personally made millions of dollars from private deals… as have many of the folks in my professional network.
But the problem with private deals is unless you’re already rich or exceedingly well connected, it’s hard to get in.
You can’t buy them from your brokerage account. Your investment adviser probably won’t ever tell you about them, either. And without hundreds of hours of research and a team of analysts, it’s difficult to separate the good private deals from the bad.
Fortunately, my team and I have done this work for you…
That’s why tomorrow, October 6, at 8 p.m. ET, I’m holding an all-hands-on-deck emergency briefing for my next pre-IPO recommendation.
The man behind this deal is one of the most successful venture capitalists of our generation. Insiders compare him to Elon Musk and Richard Branson. Just 11 deals have built his billion-dollar fortune.
For a limited time, you might be able to take part in his 12th deal – before its planned IPO on the NYSE.
Here’s why I use the word “might”…
My last pre-IPO recommendation at an event like this filled up less than 12 hours after my announcement… And this deal could fill up even faster.
That’s why I recently canceled my trip to Hawaii. I ate the loss on the hotel cancellation fee… and I canceled my scuba training…
But most difficult of all, I canceled on my brother’s 49th birthday party.
All so I could do everything in my power to give you a shot at getting in on this deal.
Again, I can’t guarantee you’ll be able to get a single share because this deal is on a first-come, first-served basis.
But since my last deal filled up in less than 12 hours, I knew it was critical I cancel my plans and bring this deal to you as soon as possible.
So join me tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, and I’ll give you all the details on how you can get in on the ground floor with this legendary venture capitalist. Reserve your free spot right here.
Let the Game Come to You!
