One of the questions I get most often – so often, in fact, that it’s a weekly feature of my Total Wealth e-letter – is: “Where can I invest $100 smartly?”
Six little words, one huge idea.
Because, as we all know, your hard-won capital is exactly that: hard-won. You’ve had to work for it and protect it, and, naturally, you want to put it to work for you and invest it the right way.
That’s what I’m here to help you do. Today, that means naming a very, very small stock that’s recently come to my attention. I’ve gone over the numbers, and I like what I’m seeing. It’s a strong buy.
If you’ve been with me for a while, you’ll know I’m all about the profit potential of “cheap” stocks, but what we have here is a bona fide micro-cap stock; it’s a worthwhile destination for your $100 this week.
Not only that, but we can have some fun with it, too…
Part of investing smartly is realizing you don’t have to shell out megabucks for a chance at top-notch profit potential. “Pre-IPO rights” in some of the 500 or so companies looking to go public in the United States right now are a perfect example.
In some cases, you can get dibs on these for $1 – a single buck… but should the company go public, get ready: In exceptional cases, peak gains of 2,088%, 6,566%, 8,280%, 9,075%, even 27,550% have been seen. Exceptional, like I said, but no one’s likely to see gains like that from stocks, options, or cryptocurrencies. Let me walk you through this right here…

Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor’s 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in “the pit” as a market maker.
The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX – to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd’s TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company’s “listed” and OTC trading desks.
Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.
Shah’s vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story – when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.
Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.
Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business’s Varney & Co.
