About Stansberry Research
What Is Stansberry Research?
By Porter Stansberry
Stansberry Research is a subscription-based publisher of financial information and software, serving millions of investors around the world. Our business is guided by two simple principles:
- We strive to give our customers the information we'd want if our roles were reversed.
- We only publish analysts whose advice and strategies we'd want our own families to read and to follow.
We believe in offering a range of opinions. Experienced analysts, with their own unique investment strategies and philosophies, lead our franchise brands. As a result, we do not promote a single, unified view of the markets, but instead we publish a mosaic of opinions, recommendations, and strategies. This multi-franchise approach gives our work far greater breadth, creating more diverse opportunities for our subscribers. Our franchises are linked, however, by a continuous commitment to risk management and a contrarian approach to identifying investment opportunities. Across all of our franchises, we focus on investments that are unloved, ignored, or unknown. It is in these situations where having an informed perspective gives our subscribers the best risk-to-reward opportunities.
We believe in a long-term approach. Our business strategy is based on building long-term relationships with our customers. We generally do not earn a profit from marketing trial subscriptions. Instead, we seek long-term relationships with our clients by providing consistently reliable, actionable, and profitable advice, which results in renewal income for our business. As a result, many of our internal marketing efforts are focused on selling lifetime subscriptions, which give clients access to more (or even all) of our products at a much lower total cost. The same long-term thinking guides the relationships we have with our business partners and our employees.
We believe in transparency and accountability. Sincere goodwill is best demonstrated by routine and reliable measures of performance. We believe that all investment advisors, whether fiduciaries or publishers, ought to provide an accounting of the outcomes of their advice. All of our investment recommendations are publicly evaluated each year. All of our investment newsletters include track records in each monthly issue.
We believe in unmatched customer service and no-risk subscriptions. Our overall goal in business is to simply treat our customers as we would like to be treated. When you call our office, we will pick up the phone. And, at any time in the first 30 days, if we're not able to meet your expectations for any reason, we are always willing to "part as friends" by promptly refunding your entire subscription fee. There is more than enough risk in the financial world: you will never have to risk a penny buying our products.
