After my business lunch with Roger Conrad and David Dittman, I can imagine someone getting super wealthy off the information they were throwing out.
In preparation for this message to you, I interviewed the two investment super-stars to get their take on the best place to put your money.
Right now, both Roger and David cannot get enough money into Australia. I’ll cover more about their economy in just a moment, but the highlights are staggering.
They could read the disbelief in my face when they repeated themselves (and this is when they got excited enough for the whole restaurant to become millionaires):
“We’re talking 20-30% capital gains” “7-11% yields” “5-9% currency appreciation”
That’s $80,000 to $125,000 on a $250,000 investment. Needless to say, the tables around us paid more attention to the conversation at our table than their own as David and Roger laid out the investment story I present to you now.
It starts with an Australian communications company that just launched a groundbreaking new “cloud” service. Then they went on to the natural resources of Australia and the desperation in Asia for those resources. They talked about the stability of Australia’s banking—well, the strength of Australia’s economy as a whole. I didn’t know they were the only country that didn’t go into recession in 2008-2009.
Oh, yeah, and they happened to mention how American investors could pocket $700 per month in extra income.
So that’s where we’ll start. The Australian communications company paying 8% dividends and rolling out a revolutionary cloud computing software that has businesses, small to large, outsourcing all of their computing to this innovative service.
Roger explained: This company is the latest stock pick in our award-winning portfolio, and they’re uniquely positioned to dominate Australia, the Pacific and the enormous markets of Asia.
Savvy Australian investors—the few with enough knowledge to pay attention—are buying now, because life-changing gains are just around the corner.
How big is cloud computing? It’s the size of the future.
Those millions of computers that fill offices across the country will be slowly replaced by a few giant cloud servers that handle all computing.
No more IT departments and overhead. No more instantly obsolete machines. No more endless software updates and glitches.
A single cloud service can host all of the cash registers, databases, information processing and web services of any business.
IBM changed the world when they put their computers in millions of businesses across the world.
Microsoft did the same when businesses adopted their Windows operating system.
So did Xerox.
But enough history. This incredible opportunity is happening now.
His name is Roger Conrad and he’s the Chief Strategist of Australian Edge. It’s a new and exciting product from the award-winning publisher Investing Daily, and it’s the safest and best way to build wealth.
I felt like a schmuck for never even thinking of Australia as a destination for my investment money. But boy, did that change as Roger and David spelled it out for me.
The little bit of gray hair on his head shows his experience (though I should clarify—almost almost all his hair is gray, there’s just not much left). He’s considered the industry leader in safe income investment and wealth generation. So when he gets excited about a play, I listen.
Many people know him from Utility Forecaster, where he achieved triple-digit gains of 162.7%.
Others will recall Canadian Edge, which he launched in 2004 with the invaluable help of industry veteran David Dittman. It’s currently up 79.3 percent, and their proprietary safety-rating system lets you choose super-safe investments for your hard-earned money. I still love the consistent gains from my favorite Canadian picks.
They’re now taking their experience to the other side of the world...
The next part is so good, I thought it best to let Roger’s words explain it:
David and I are doing it again with this new launch of Australian Edge.It seems like a far-away island (err... country, and by that I mean continent), but the gains we’re earning make us feel right at home. We’re already on track to making a safe 106% this year.
And that’s BEFORE taking into account this latest opportunity.
So forget searching through the stormy U.S. market for a silver lining, because I want to tell you about a “cloud” that’s lined with gold...
But First the Happy Ending: A Super-Safe 8%
Our subscribers at Australian Edge love this stuff. But they also love safety. That’s why I’m going to start this story at the end.
An Australian communications company pays 8% every year. And they’ve maintained this rate for roughly a decade...
So good or bad, through the best times and the worst, you can count on your payment. (It’s true: The land of the boomerang knows the value of a good return.)
This stock is as predictable as a Disney movie. And now that you’ve heard the “happily ever after,” let’s get to the gains-earning urgency that’s happening right now.
The Golden Cloud
The time of the cloud is here.
All of the world’s large, notable companies are fully embracing it:
Microsoft just introduced their new Office 365 cloud service and has started a new ad campaign to let the world know about the capabilities of this new technology...
Google has been working on cloud concepts for years, helping to shape the capabilities and philosophy behind the technology...
Amazon has announced early plans to offer cloud services, and may even become a significant leader here in the U.S....
Many other companies are also offering limited cloud services, including Apple (with their stripped-down iCloud service) and Yahoo.
This is where our pick comes in. They first began offering limited cloud services in 2009, and have slowly expanded since then. In July of 2011 they announced an AUD 800 million comprehensive upgrade. The new and improved cloud has just recently become fully operational.
Market analysts and tech experts have watched with excitement as these improvements have been slowly unveiled. Why all of the excitement? That will become clear in just a minute.
The mechanics of how the Australian Cloud does business are fairly simple.
Large clients arrange contracts directly with this company, since they require custom service that can handle hundreds of employees.
Smaller clients order services directly from the Australian Cloud website, and are able to set up either basic or pay-as-you-go plans that handle everything from customer databases to videoconferencing.
But all of this raises a good question: Exactly what is a cloud service, how is it used and how is the Australian Cloud so unique?
I’m glad you asked...
How the Cloud Works... for a Solid Investment
You’ll be rewarded for paying attention to this. Part of the reason the potential gains of this play are so rich is because many investors aren’t tech-savvy enough to understand the way this new world-changing technology works.
At its core, cloud computing is a giant warehouse full of servers. While most people are familiar with the servers used for storage and relaying Internet requests, cloud computing goes several steps further, where all processing and computing occurs on very powerful processing servers. Users, back in their offices, are operating stripped-down computers that only rarely need to be upgraded.
It’s equivalent to trading in your office’s network for part of a supercomputer.
What you’re reading today was written from my own cloud account. You could steal the machine off my desk but you couldn’t get any of my data, because my photos, documents, videos and these words live on several giant, secure servers. I can access my account anywhere.
It makes business a lot simpler. But even more important, it offers considerable savings...
The Solution for the Bottom Line
It’s easy to see why companies are lining up to trade in their IT departments and company computers for the cloud: It’s a lot cheaper.
I asked one of my analysts to take a look at some of the cost comparisons, and they simply don’t lie.
If an insurance company is paying $335,000 a year (including IT salaries) for their company network and database system, they can buy an equivalent cloud service for $82,000.
That’s an overnight savings of $253,000 for the company’s bottom line. They’ve also avoided the costs of future hardware and software upgrades, not to mention the increased speed and reliability.
There’s also an advantage here for you. Companies don’t spend money reliably on products (like hardware and software), but they’re very consistent when committed to a contract or subscription.
“Locked-In” Profits for Years to Come
Companies that choose the savings of the cloud are “locked in.” Customer turnover rates are very low, as customers pay their subscriptions year after year after year.
That’s why this is so safe.
All of the frustration and risk of investing in a tech company goes away.
Do you remember Hewlett-Packard’s recent announcement (later retracted) that they were leaving the computer business? Investors were left holding shares that rapidly declined in value.
Have you watched with horror as RIM (Research in Motion) struggled to bring new innovations to their Blackberry platform?
What about when Dell, HP, the old Packard Bell (for you history buffs) and even Apple (yes, even Apple!) had to make expensive, large-scale recalls of defective products?
That’s why you need a safe, consistent technology pick like the Australian Cloud.
The subscription-based service is much less risky than a product-based company.
But it gets even better...
An Unstoppable Advantage, for Unstoppable Gains
This is the juicy part.
To begin with, the Australian Cloud is unique in the quality of its platform. It was the first Australian-based cloud service to receive SAP certification, making it the only Australian platform that can run Enterprise.
But there’s one VERY BIG REASON that our stock pick has the most UNIQUE cloud in the world: As a communications company, they own the network that powers their cloud.
This is an extremely important advantage.
Because cloud services require an incredible amount of bandwidth to operate, clients of other services must first find a network provider that can offer bandwidth that’s robust, secure and reliable enough to handle cloud computing.
But our pick makes it easy for their clients—because they already run one of the largest and most impressive broadband networks in the world.
We’re talking bandwidth in some very big numbers. They’ve spent billions of Australian dollars building one of the strongest and most comprehensive broadband networks in the world.
But this is only the beginning... it’s about to get bigger.
Bandwidth By the Billions
In October this company inked a deal with the Australian government to contribute their network to the National Broadband Network (NBN) for the price of AUD 11 billion. The goal of the NBN is to offer government-subsidized broadband access to every Australian, something that our stock pick isn’t able to do as a private company.
This NBN deal is still awaiting approval from a regulatory board, and if it goes through, the ownership of the network will transfer to the NBN.
But the home-court advantage doesn’t go away. The network will still run on the platform that was custom-built to run the Australian Cloud. In fact, they will continue to maintain and upgrade the network via several contracts with the NBN.
They’re essentially “getting their cake and eating it, too”: they get to pass off the maintenance costs, get paid AUD 11 billion and continue usage and maintenance of a network they built.
And speaking of cake, here’s how to get your piece: by buying now.
This giant infusion of cash from the sale will have an immediate effect on the share price.
That’s part of the reason why the timing is so important, and why acting now will give you the Edge.
We’re keeping our subscribers to Australian Edge posted on the day-by-day status of this landmark deal.
In the meantime, clients continue to line up for service to the Australian Cloud.
A Who’s Who Client List... and Counting
The client list for the Australian Cloud has now grown to over 500 companies, and it’s not just early adopters. It includes manufacturing giant Komatsu, Tristar Medical Group, WD-40, the World Wildlife Fund, and Renishaw, to name a few. Some of the world’s largest companies are also recent clients, though they’re not on the published list.
But as I mentioned, the cloud is also great for small companies. A significant number of cloud services are being purchased by companies with less than 500 employees.
While the options are still somewhat limited for every coffee shop and gas station, my stock pick is in the process of packaging their service so that it’s more accessible to the hundreds of thousands of smaller clients. Very soon there will be no limit to the length of their client list.
A Great Decade (for This Company)
It’s important to note at this point that our stock pick already has an impressive lineup of services... and the Australian Cloud is just the latest.
David and I promised you a safety-rated pick, and that’s why we’ve chosen a company that’s built on a solid foundation. This isn’t the Tumbarumba Rodeo, and we’re not here to show you a one-trick pony.
Their CEO is a seasoned veteran who has received accolades from all over Australia, and their Chairwoman and her board are known for their far-sighted thinking.
As a communications company, they were early to the mobile communications scene. Their early lead put them in an enviable position so that they now dominate the competition in this important market. They added 1.6 million new subscribers to their mobile service in the past year alone. They’ve greatly expanded the features of their mobile service, and that expansion is already earning them increased mobile revenues of AUD 8.1 billion.
Their mobile revenue alone is enough to float the entire company, which is part of the reason they’re well-suited to enter new markets...
They aren’t confined to Australia. They’ve taken their recipe for success on the road, and now you can find them in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and everywhere in between (cough India... cough China).
They just expanded their mobile service into Hong Kong, where they’ve added 325,000 new customers. They have also renegotiated many of the undersea cable contracts that they have in this region, bringing them more profits. This activity kept them stable throughout the aftermath of the global recession.
But the most notable expansion is also the newest: They announced this past fall that they were expanding into India. They’ve negotiated contracts for a dozen major cities, including Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta. They’re also planning on building fiber gateways in Mumbai and Chennai that will directly link India with Europe and Asia. It’s not yet clear the range of services that they’ll offer to this new market, but you can be sure that David and I are carefully monitoring these developments. While it’s still too early to speculate, these expansions will likely lead to significant gains a year or two from now.
Subscribers to Australian Edge will be the first to know.
Timing is Everything
As you can see, our stock pick is one of the most impressive buys in the world. But buying now is essential to making impressive gains.
Because all of this is so new (and because the layman hasn’t understood the world-changing shift that’s happening), the value of the Australian Cloud has not yet been reflected in the share price.
You’ll always have the 8 percent dividend, which makes this company a good buy for years to come, but the chance for big gains is right now.
That’s why we’ve put all of our resources in motion...
David and I held a meeting with our staff yesterday, telling them to drop their other projects and help us compile all of the data on this opportunity.
We finished late last night, and rewarded our analysts with a round of Foster’s.
We’re very pleased to announce our new Special Report: “Australia’s Golden Cloud.”
You should be.
We’re very pleased with the numbers in this report and we’re ready to rush it to you immediately.
You should already be thinking, “Which of my investments aren’t working hard enough for me?”
It’s time to put your money somewhere it can provide income AND grow.
Why Australia is the Best Place for Your Money
We didn’t choose Australia just so that we could earn frequent-flier miles. Australia is one of the best places in the world to invest. Here are a few reasons why:
First, they are geographically well-situated. This is hard for us to imagine here in the U.S., where they appear to be a lonely continent in a far-flung ocean. But despite their distance from the U.S., they’re next-door neighbors to the largest and fastest-growing market in the world... Asia. The Australian market is currently exploding with growth from exports to Asia, and this is only going to increase as China and the countries of South Asia continue to develop.
Second, Australia has an amazing wealth of natural resources. They’re the largest coal exporter in the world, and they have significant lodes of gold and other rare and precious metals.
Third, Australia is incredibly safe. They were the only major country that didn’t suffer a recession in 2008-2009. Their industries stayed strong, and even expanded.
This last one is our favorite... Australia favors dividends. Their financial philosophy is a little different from that of Wall Street. The average Australian company models its profits around dividends that climb into the double digits. For example, this last year the Australia 100 paid out double the amount of the S&P 500.
In the last 110 years, the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) has become the most profitable stock exchange in the world.
It’s truly a whole new world of opportunities.
We Know Australia
Australian Edge features a broad spectrum of industries, and highlights the things Australia does best.
Our formula is obviously working.
In the last three months, here are the percentage points we’ve earned:
29.9% in coal energy. Australia is the largest exporter of coal in the world, and we carefully follow several of the best coal companies. Our portfolio includes a company with lots of cash, no debt and a new contract for exporting coal to Asia.
18% in oil and gas. We have several attractive companies in this sector, including one pipeline company that just successfully refinanced all of their debt and is paying a giant dividend.
21.2% in agriculture. Australians are great at growing grains and gains. One company has a new wheat deal with Cargill Australia, as well as malt contracts that now put Australian malt in many of the world’s top beers. Cheers to that, mate!
21% in commercial banking. One pick has just increased their revenue by a whopping 80%, and though their European interests are under fire, they’re well-hedged by some smart moves in Asia. As they continue to reduce their risk in Europe, the future is bright.
And this is just the beginning... We have additional movers making considerable gains in utilities, mining, consumer goods and industrial engineering.
I’d like to also remind you that all of these picks are safety-rated, allowing you to pick between aggressive and conservative stances. You decide your level of risk.
Our numbers are carefully calculated by evaluating six criteria: payout ratio, earnings visibility, debt-to-assets ratio, debt coming due the next two years, exposure of earnings to commodity price swings and dividend cuts in the past five years.
But regardless of your stance, you don’t have to bet the farm to earn great gains. We comb through our analysis to find great companies for safe investments.
The Australian Cloud is a great example: It’s a hand-picked opportunity from our conservative list.
We also tell you exactly how to do business in Australia. For everything from tax considerations to the best trading platforms, we guide you every step of the way. Our experience allows you to make informed decisions in minutes.
As I said earlier, we’re on track to make 106% this year. Are you ready to join us?
