New Prophesy Buy: 300% Upside As Silver Rally Catches Up With Gold

When passengers consistently have their travel plans delayed and flight operations are not at peak efficiency, an airline stock will suffer as a result.

New Prophesy Buy: Triple Your Money with This Offshore Drilling Trade

On its recent bounce, oil prices are set for a sustained rebound. Currently, offshore drilling stocks are now priced at levels that assume business will never return to prior peak levels.

Using our uniquie Project Prophesy indicator, Jim and Dan have identified one offshore driller that the market is significantly mispricing and poised to make big gains as it catches up to the rest of the sector.

This makes it a great candidate for a Crash Speculator opportunity.
