About Pinnacle Digest
What is Pinnacle Digest?
Pinnacle Digest (PD) was established as an online financial newsletter for aggressive growth investors. Over the years it has evolved dramatically - but maintained its focus on the small-cap market - and it now provides a comprehensive range of reports on high-risk investment opportunities within the energy, technology, mining, and biotech sectors. Pinnacle Digest’s social investor community has expanded into a fully integrated online investment club, with monthly contests and investor educational tools to both entertain and challenge its members.
Pinnacle Digest has established a reputation...
Before we get started, you must understand that Pinnacle Digest focuses on high risk investment opportunities in its newsletter and on this website. If you’re not prepared to potentially lose the money you have invested, these opportunities just aren’t for you. The junior market is no more than an arena for calculated gambles.
Pinnacle Digest recognizes that comprehensive sector research and face to face meetings with companies’ management is key to providing unique coverage. Our commitment to proactively building relationships with new and junior companies hasn’t faltered and has led to our membership growth. A commitment to providing quality reports over quantity has always been a priority at Pinnacle and we only introduce, on average, 6 - 8 investment opportunities annually. These investment opportunities are known as our ‘Featured Companies’.
Before selecting a Featured Company, the key for us is to make a judgement on whether its story is well-positioned given the current market environment and whether its management will follow through on development as scripted. And most importantly, we want to be in front of the story before ‘The Street’ is. Make no mistake about it, we are biased when it comes to our Featured Companies. Pinnacle Digest is compensated for the reports it produces and distributes on Featured Companies. This allows us to provide our newsletter and site to our members (subscribers) free of charge. On top of that, we invest in nearly every one of our Featured Companies with a short to medium-term investment time horizon.
In our newsletter (subscription is free) we write about high risk and highly speculative opportunities, and our goal is to capitalize on short to medium-term market moves (influenced by industry, company and macro economic developments). Pinnacle Digest doesn't claim to have a perfect track record; that doesn't exist in the stock market and we've introduced Featured Companies that ended up failing to achieve their objectives, resulting in money lost for those who invested. However, thanks to our large network of industry professionals, we've also been able to identify many junior companies in the early part of their growth stage.
Some of our past clients and Featured Companies have achieved tremendous success from a share price standpoint, and also from an operational and company milestone standpoint. We introduced a junior biotech as a Featured Company who went on to reach a license agreement with Bayer Innovations. We introduced a Featured Company who went on to receive an investment of nearly $7.5 million through a private placement from the IFC, a member of the World Bank Group. We introduced a Featured Company operating in the uranium sector who went on to sign a processing agreement with Cameco Resources, the world’s largest publicly traded uranium company. In 2011, Pinnacle Digest introduced a little known oil and gas company with a market cap of roughly $12 million at the time and it had not yet reached profitability. Less than 12 months later our Featured Oil & Gas Company went on to nearly triple its production, reach profitability, quadruple its market cap, almost triple in share price and it was named to the 2012 TSX Venture 50, a ranking reserved for the strongest performing companies on the TSX Venture Exchange.
In May 2012, a time which saw junior mining stocks lose liquidity and hit multi-year lows, investors were fleeing the sector and dumping shares for pennies on the dollar. Always the contrarians, PD took a stand in May 2012. After learning about the assets of a specific junior gold stock, and taking several meetings with its CEO, we decided to select it as our client and Featured Gold Company. At the time of our introduction, this junior gold company’s shares were sitting at $0.15 (after being sold-off for weeks) and it was on the verge of starting its first ever significant exploration program in the White Gold District of the Yukon, Canada. Its flagship project was in close proximity to some major players in the region who had already made massive discoveries. We saw an opportunity, despite the risk associated with such an investment.
As anyone who invests in junior exploration companies knows, the best place to find new discoveries is within the same regions as previous ones. Given the company’s low market cap at the time of roughly $6.6 million, the risk/reward made sense to us. It is a well known truism in the junior resource sector that nothing pays like discovery and this Featured Gold Company proved this theory once again. Just under 4.5 months after we introduced this junior gold stock to our members (subscribers), its share price closed at $0.60 - a 300% increase from $0.15. How did it increase 300% during a time period that saw liquidity dry up for junior resource stocks and many share prices collapse? By making a significant gold discovery in close proximity to a major's project. Take a look at our past Featured Company's stock chart and notice the share price trajectory shortly after the discovery was made:
It is important to note that every Featured Company mentioned above was a client of ours and we were compensated to provide online marketing services for these companies. Pinnacle Digest is a biased source of investment information, but we do not charge our subscribers one penny to receive our reports and opting out is as simple as clicking a link at the bottom of every email we send out.
Pinnacle Digest focuses on HIGH RISK opportunities and companies embarking on major work programs in the near-term. By no means are our Featured Companies suitable investments for everyone. In fact, you should never make an investment based solely on what you read in our newsletter. Do your own thorough due diligence on our Featured Companies because it's your money to invest and we don't share in your profits or losses. Pinnacle Digest doesn't have a crystal ball and while some of our Featured Companies have gone on to achieve great accomplishments, others have come up short, resulting in money lost for those who invested. Always consider us biased when it comes to our Featured Companies.
Investors should use our exclusive Featured Company reports as a starting point to do additional independent research. Education is key when investing in any market, particularly in the junior markets. In other words, don't be lazy.
Committed To Providing Top Notch Coverage
Whether it’s an up-and-coming technology company from California’s Silicon Valley, to a junior mining company from Toronto, to a break through solar energy company from New Jersey, Pinnacle Digest has done its homework. Always remember, we are biased about every Featured Company we write about as they are likely clients of ours and we often own shares in these companies. Having our Featured Companies as clients provides us the benefit of really getting to know management and the company's assets intimately. Also, we are investors just like you and intend to sell every share we purchase in our Featured Companies for our own profit. We're not here to tell investors what stocks they should buy, sell or hold. We are not chartered business valuators; the methods used by business valuators often cannot justify any trading price for most junior stock exchange listed companies.
Visiting Featured Companies
Most investors don’t have the time to travel across the country to review certain companies they may purchase shares in. Site visits can be an important aspect of our selection process and maintaining the high quality standards we have worked so hard to achieve. These site visits help shed light onto the day to day operations of a company.
Our selection process is time consuming and requires we follow our own criteria - part of the reason we only select, on average, 6 to 8 Featured Companies annually.
Some of Pinnacle Digest’s past clients and Featured Companies have provided our members with tremendous profit taking opportunities. For example: We introduced our members to a new solar company in October 2009 when it was unknown to the general investing public and was trading at $0.355 on very little daily volume. Within 1 month of releasing our exclusive report on the company to our members, its stock price had increased to a high of $0.98 (174% increase)... but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Shortly thereafter, within 8 months of our introduction, the company had been featured in an article on the cover of the New York Times, featured on ABC’s Nightly News and the Company’s CEO was interviewed on FOX’s morning show, “Fox and Friends”. Soon after, its shares hit a high of $1.55. On top of all that, the company had recently inked a major deal with a Chinese manufacturer. And yes, Pinnacle Digest was compensated to provide marketing coverage for this company and we owned shares in it as well.
For another example, let’s go to the mining sector. In September of 2009 we introduced our members to a junior gold explorer about to break through to new highs and catch the mining industry by surprise.
At the time we introduced this junior gold stock to our members, it was at $0.155 per share. We stated in our report “Our strategy to combat inflation has been to feature and invest in junior gold companies with advanced projects, operating in producing regions. Find a company with those two attributes and partner them with one of the largest gold producers in the world and you'll discover our second and last Featured Gold Company of 2009.”
Within 2 months (almost to the exact day) of releasing our first report on this junior gold explorer to our members, Kinross offered to buyout our Featured Company’s interest in its flagship gold asset. The stock shot up to $0.39 on millions of shares traded – an increase of 151% from where it traded just two months prior. And yes, Pinnacle Digest was compensated to provide marketing coverage for this company and we owned shares in it as well.
Join our group today (for free, with no strings attached) to read about our Featured Companies of the past, but more importantly, receive the exclusive reports on our Featured Companies of the future. Not every one of our Featured Companies will be a success like the ones mentioned above; some of our clients and Featured Companies will turn out to be failures and result in lost money for those who invest, but this is the nature of investing in juniors and start-up companies. They are very risky investments.
