“Peak Velocity Trader and Michael Carr”   

Alpha Stock Alert by Ted Bauman is this financial expert’s only stock recommendation newsletter.

Who is Michael Carr?

Michael J. Carr retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force before taking his chances with the stock market. During his time in the Air Force, Michael worked as a nuclear missile architect for the Pentagon. His mission was to ensure that the missiles he crafted would hit their intended targets with 100% accuracy, 100% of the time.  This method is the one he uses for one of his other stock investment newsletters, Precision Profits. While Precision Profits uses a seasonal trading system that pinpoints winning “profit windows”, his Peak Velocity Trader newsletter uses another precise strategy for buying in low and selling high with extreme accuracy, allowing his subscribed investors to capture quick gains almost on a monthly basis. Featured in Nasdaq back when his newsletter was under a different name, Michael Carr is now a part of the financial editors at Banyan Hill Publishing.

What is Peak Velocity Trader?

The trading strategy that Michael Carr uses in Peak Velocity Trader is one based off of – you guessed it – “velocity trades”.  Velocity trades are just a fancy way of calling traditional trades. The traditional way of trading in Wall Street is the buy low, sell high strategy, which most investors try to do, but not everyone is successful using this method. Peak Velocity Trader takes the buy low, sell high strategy and applies it to stocks that are showing true velocity in the market. Meaning, Michael Carr and his analysts have evaluated the particular stock, its positions, its current valuations, and make trade recommendations or buy and sell put options based on their theory that the stock will increase in price. The majority of trade recommendations released in the Peak Velocity Trader newsletter are quick plays – allowing investors to get in, get out, and collect nice gains in a short amount of time – perhaps monthly if properly followed.

Final Review of Peak Velocity Trader

Peak Velocity Trader is one of my favorite stock newsletters. Why? Because it works! I don’t 100% know what Michael is doing, although he is very informative in his weekly emails and updates about current positions, but this stock investment strategy is one that works and definitely pays off for its subscribers. I personally follow every singly trade recommendation made in Peak Velocity Trader because they have all provided me with double to triple digit gains. Out of the past 20 stock recommendations Michael has made in Peak Velocity Trader, only 3 fell in the negative that we sold. 17/20 were double to triple digit winners – this is no joke! I can’t tell you which trades because I genuinely encourage investors to sign up for this newsletter, but the percentage gains on the last 5 were 50%, 53.19%, 79.15%, 286%, 185% and 200%. The best part is that most of these stocks were under $2. The one with the most growth ended at around $10 per share. So, if you bought a decent amount of shares, profits were great! Now, don’t get me wrong, not all of Michael Carr’s stock recommendations released in Peak Velocity Trader work out, I’ve seen massive losses as well. In fact, it almost seemed like Michael had a slump the entire first half of 2018, but he tweaked his strategy and the past 4 months has been packed with winners, far outweighing the losing positions. Overall, I recommend this stock investment newsletter as part of my personal top 10 favorites. The strategy that backs Peak Velocity Trader is one that can allow subscribers to see quick gains, which is perfect if you are looking to get into stock investing for additional monthly income.
