I’ve lived through major hurricanes, survived economic recessions, and have experienced the incredible power of American capitalism and its financial markets. Business truly is the lifeblood of progress. It’s astonishing to think of what’s been accomplished in my lifetime, since 1980.

My name is Jonathan Poland. and I’ve spent over 15 years analyzing and forecasting the world’s leading investments, publishing research and helping high net worth investors beat the market year after year with stocks like BAC, BA, MCD, AAPL, GS, and JOY. My top ideas have documented returns of more than 5,000 percent, and I don’t have an Ivy League education, wasn’t groomed at a major Wall Street firm, but I’ll put my knowledge of business and the capital markets up against anyone.

It all started just before 9/11. I was a licensed stock broker from 2001 to 2007. Since then, I’ve owned, built, and advised businesses in more than a dozen industries, but everything always comes back to making good capital allocation decisions whether you’re building a business, buying real estate, or putting money in the stock market – ROI matters.
