Dan AmossDan Amoss

Dan Amoss, CFA, tracks aggressive accounting and other red flags that markets miss. He’s a student of the Austrian School of economics and Daily Reckoning fan since 2000. Agora Financial relies on Dan for macro market commentary as well as profitable plays like his 2008 call to readers to buy Lehman Bros. puts, which gained 462% as the stock fell from $45 to $12. And he called American Airlines’ bankruptcy long before the Chapter 11 filing, telling readers to short the stock, which tanked from $6 to just 26 cents.

Formerly, he was investment adviser to one of the top small-cap mutual funds in the country. He grew up on a semi-working small farm that his great-grandfather bought in 1907, learning thrift and the value of hard work through generations. 

This informs his drive to seek truth and expose frauds and promotions that suck in investors. He cut his teeth in finance interviewing management teams in “roadshows” and so knows the kind of BS they sell.

His bottom-up investing style focuses on management strategy, return on capital and the truth (and lies) buried in financial statements.


Brace for China’s Coming Financial Meltdown

In today's live quarterly intelligence briefing for lifetime members, Jim discusses the economic crisis going on in China, how the intensifying debt bubble is bringing chaos to its markets and what may be the only retaliation left against Trump and the U.S. Also, three recommendations from Dan to take advantage of the ongoing volatility in the Chinese economy.

New Prophesy Buy: This Leading Farm Equipment Manufacturer has 300% Upside

The intensifying U.S. trade war with China has hit the heartland of America, the U.S. farm economy. With news of China targeting the U.S. farm belt with tariffs, American farmers will be hurt in the process. Our Prophesy indicator has found one farm equipment pure-play that is vulnerable to China’s retaliation and could cut its earnings guidance as a result. (Note: Due to the intense selling pressure that could arrive in tomorrow’s trading session for this play, we have decided to send your alert scheduled for next Tuesday a few days early for optimal profitability in this trade.)

Dark Money Millionaires Portfolio Update

This week retaliation from China against U.S tariffs will begin to take focus from investors as uncertainty builds. While the S&P 500 seemed unphased, you should pay close attention to the markets. Here’s a renewed set of insights that you should be tuned into. Read on for your Dark Money update with analysis on our open positions.

New Prophesy Buy: There’s 300% Upside on China’s Plan to Tank Their Own Stock Market

As the trade war escalates between the U.S. and China, one thing is clear. China cannot win a dollar-for-dollar tariff increase due to the large trade deficit between the two countries. Instead, it has moved to currency war tactics to offset the U.S. advantage in imposing tariffs. As Wall Street misreads these developments, Jim and Dan offer the best play to profit in advance from China’s plan for yuan devaluation and crashing their own stock market.

Project Prophesy Portfolio Update

As the trade war with China continues to intensify, so does the currency war. China is allowing the yuan to weaken against the dollar, which puts new pressure on emerging-market stocks. Jim continues to monitor the volatility and will give new updates in future alerts and commentaries. For now, read on for Dan’s open recommendations that include favorable news on the latest addition to our portfolio in the steel industry.
