If you haven’t heard of Howard Lindzon, he’s a hedge fund/venture capital individual who has become widely followed due to his trend pundit and he co-founded StockTwits. He is now working in conjunction with Agora Publishing. So, people who like to do a little detective work who are curious as to what he’s selling will be able to figure it out.
He’s a powerful and regular opener, and you can see all his stuff on his blog and Twitter. Both of his social media feeds are worth looking at. And anyone else who has followings on social media, understand how we naturally develop our own voices and opinions. Oftentimes a lot of people don’t agree with these opinions.
But a far as Lindzon goes, a lot of people find him very interesting to follow at the very least. When it comes to Twitter, spamming and uncertainty about your opinion rarely gets any attention. As for Howard, he’s recently launched a paid newsletter that is called the Peloton. It was launched last summer and makes bold claims as to how much a person can profit from the recommendations he’s made in his publication.
Many of his claims are in reference to entry level positions and focused around the write-up of one particular investment deal. But no one really knows what his investment ideas were, he says all seven of them are up with average open gain of 259%.
That’s the gist of it, a new low-cost newsletter that is being published by Howard Lindzon – and like many newsletters, it’s full of ads, mostly just baited with the headlines that claim how you can double your investment in a few days or weeks, after you read their upcoming announcement.
That’s pretty much what it is, there are some speculative answers too as to what the big announcement will be about. If you want to subscribe to the newsletter you can do that, not sure if you’ll be into it or not. But don’t ever turn your credit card out to get “inside” secrets on stock trading. That will probably just hurt your chances of being able to think clearly when investing into a stock. Below are the two possibilities of what the announcement could be about.
He first states:
“This company’s patented technology could single-handedly disrupt the $800 billion (and growing) cryptocurrency markets and help early investors turn every $1,000 into $10,000.”
And another clue is:
“I’ve just discovered a NEW way to score massive crypto-like profits WITHOUT having to risk a single cent on Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Ripple, or any other cryptocurrency you’ve been hearing about in the news.
“I call it the ‘Crypto Terminal’….
“… the very existence of this “Crypto Terminal” could not only disrupt the way investors get information about cryptocurrencies…
“It could completely disrupt the stranglehold old-school media outlets––like Reuters, CNBC, and even Bloomberg––have on the financial news… and become the biggest player in a $3.5 billion dollar market in the process!
“And, on April 25, a shocking announcement could send shares of this tech company skyrocketing!”
That’s not all he states however, he also begins describing how the chat feature at the Bloomberg Terminal is the most widely used feature on the entire platform. It is used to connect hundreds of thousands of the most successful traders in the world in with real-time communications. Also, that Bloomberg doesn’t track a majority of the different cryptocurrencies, so this stock is secret.
Another quote read:
“… opened up a ‘back door’ for folks all around the world who want access to real-time information about the only market that’s traded 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
“And in the coming months… not only could this tech company become the Bloomberg Terminal for the cryptocurrency markets…
“It could turn every $1,000 invested into a whopping $10,000!”
So, what’s the major deal? After looking at all the clues as well as some others there is a lot pointing to the chance that Lindzon is touting on Twitter.
It’s not a surprise if you think about it. The social media platform is the primary engine driving StockTwits, and Lindzon is chairman of the company. He’s made this same comparison on Bloomberg about Bloomberg in the past as well.
Twitter has also had some great months as of recently. They were ignored in the past, but since then have really taken off again in terms of revenue. There was even a 50% surge in stocks in the last six weeks.
That’s still not enough to bring them back to where they once were back in 2014. But it still does encourage a lot of users on the platform to keep supporting them, as they don’t seam to be going anywhere. Twitter may actually be figuring out what they need to do in order to grow outside of their core audience, and then how to turn that new audience into profits.
There is a $3.4 billion opportunity that is not very special in reality. Especially for the world of advertising in which that isn’t that much money at all. And when compared to Facebook’s massive annual revenue of $40 billion, it’s only for the sake of comparison really.
Sure, there is a lot of talk about cryptocurrencies as of late on Twitter. And the ad spend on cryptocurrency has grown significantly in the last year. But that isn’t likely why Twitter has grown so much in the beginning of 2018. Twitter has even been suspected of being a medium for cryptocurrency scams, but that’s not really fair. Every scam artist in the world of finances has likely been trying to figure out how to make the most off Bitcoin in the last six months, using any platform they can.
Twitter also has some big announcements coming themselves. There quarterly earnings report will be released at the end of April. But the reports are not likely as important as the growth of their user base and how much traffic is increasing this year. The recent recovery of Twitter isn’t known to most people, but they may end up growing further if they can become the only “Crypto Bloomberg” online.
Either way, these are reasons that Lindzon’s picked what he has. He sees potential for some type of growth when it comes to Twitter. Even the folks on Wall-Street project the platform will grow 10% this year and the same next year, which isn’t that far-fetched when looking at their recent numbers. Now it’s up to you to think this all over and make your decision about what to do with the information.
