Ecuador Export Business Idea

Live anywhere – Earn in Ecuador with an export business in Ecuador.

Create an Ecuador exports business with Roberto Ribadeneira’s Ecuador Export Tour.   Merri and I have worked with Roberto for nearly twenty years exporting many products.

You can arrange an individual tour designed especially for you.

ecuador exports

Lake Quicocha near Cotacachi.

Visiting another country is great, but it is even better if you can do business while traveling!

Come to Ecuador and learn all about exports to the USA, Canada and Europe while visiting amazing places and earning money.

* You may be able to deduct part or all of this trip from your taxes.

* You can buy products to sell back home.

* You can learn about exporting from Ecuador to anywhere.

* You can even bring ideas to manufacture in Ecuador with great quality and competitive prices.

Coming to Ecuador not only won’t cost money but will make money for you.

Here is a note from Roberto Ribadeneira:

Let me share all the knowledge, contacts and products I have accumulated over decades of exporting.  Make your trip to Ecuador the beginning of a great business opportunity.

Otavalo Market.  Learn about Tagua…a vegetable, sustainable, renewable ivory.

Let’s see some numbers.

ecuador exports

Tagua bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.

Tagua necklace. Cost in Ecuador is $3, it is sold in the USA for at least $15.

Metal Bracelet. Cost in Ecuador is $1, it is sold in the USA for at least $10.

Shawl. Cost in Ecuador is $2.50, it is sold in the USA for at least $11.

Scarf.  Cost in Ecuador is $3.00 it is sold in the USA for at least $12.00.

ecuador exports

Alpaca Scarves.

These are just few examples of products that are inexpensive and have huge margins.  But there is also another plus; you can request specific improvements on those products.

But let’s go over some numbers and specific ideas.

1-    You want to sell a tagua bracelet to a University in Colorado, but everyone can do that, what they can’t do is sell a tagua bracelet with the University’s color. We can dye the tagua bracelet to match the University’s color, same goes for any other tagua designs and even for shawls and other textiles. If you make just $9 on each tagua bracelet and you sell 100 units, you are making $900 on 1 order.  And this is just 1 product, and this is just 1 University.  You can apply this idea to any education center in the USA.

2-    You see designs of leather products that you think could be made better, or different.  There is a niche market where you can sell them.  The manufacturers in Ecuador can make any design, on any color with major improvements over the original idea.  You can even request to put a logo and special details on the products.  We have a major company in the USA that wants our leather iPhone 6 cases, but they want them with their branding and specifications that other cases don’t have.  So we are making the leather cases exactly as they want them.  Margins on leather products are around 60% retail and 20% wholesale. Orders for medium size companies come in the hundreds, so you can make good money selling leather. Customers and myself have made thousands of dollars selling these products.

3-    Selling Roses to final customers is another amazing way of making money.  What I am doing right now is reaching to people that want to raise funds for specific projects and teaching them how to use roses for that.  On one specific program we are donating $20 to $40 on each box sold to a Water Project in Ecuador.  The response has been unbelievable, people enjoy the beauty of Roses from Ecuador but also contribute to a good cause at the same time.  Since there is no limit on quantity of flowers that you can sell, there is no limit on the number of people that you can involve in this idea.

4-    Selling wholesale. This is the main goal for the July course that I want you to take here in Ecuador.  If you find a store, a chain, a website or any other vendor that sells unique and cool products, you are in for a great business opportunity. Their orders are in the hundreds and even thousands of units.  Margins are lower, but since you are selling more, that compensates.  The nice thing about this part of the business is that these big companies are looking for different products, so if they buy 1 from you, there is a big chance that they will buy many, many others.  Remember that our manufacturers can make the products with the customer’s specifications, so there is no restriction on design that your buyer may want.

As you can see there are many ways in which you can make money while visiting Ecuador.  That is why I have designed an Ecuador Export Course that can be especially customized for you.

We work 3 full days together learning and searching for products that you could buy.  You and I will go over ideas, product designs, web design, shopping carts, SEO and other details on how to get as many customers as you can.

Leather Duffel Bags.

The course includes taking you to the manufacturers, sellers and export companies so you will have all the contact information that you need to move forward on your business.  There are dozens of manufacturers that make every type of product that you can imagine.  Most of them already work with big importers all over the world and have proved that the quality of their products is amazing.

If you would like to sell retail, I will also show you how to design a website, create products, a shopping cart, how to set up the system to charge your customers online and the basics of promoting it.

There are plenty of places to visit and ideas to explore. Among the places that you will visit while on the Export Tour are:
–    Quito
–    Otavalo
–    Peguche
–    Ibarra
–    Cotacachi
–    San Antonio de Pichincha

This is not just another course, this is THE COURSE. I don’t just teach you how to Import Products to the USA, I also work on the import-export business myself, which means that I have the experience and knowledge to give you ideas and solutions.

Jewelry is one of many Ecuador exports.

Ecuador has evolved as an export center and I have expanded my export service to create custom export tours that fit your schedule and particular desires.

You can learn about exports as diverse as jewelry or wood products.

Ecuador has great art exports.

This tour goes to the high Andes.

You’ll see products from Zuleta where they create handmade “green” cotton-one-of-a-kind tableware, shirts, specialty items.

Here you see them in hand sewn embroidery from the village of Zuleta. In this Andean community near us hand embroidery has been an important form of artistic expression and adornment for centuries. Andean cultures have long boasted superior textiles, far surpassing those of Europe. The weavers of the Andes could produce material with as many as five hundred two-ply woolen wefts per inch compared to one hundred in Europe.

The women of Zuleta are renowned for unique hand embroidered designs and colors. Their styles are so unique they have become a form of cultural identification.

Flowers are popular in Otavalan sweaters as well.  Plus the ladies of Intag make flowers from plant fiber.

My main exports are flowers, but we send many products and have the Ecuadorshop Logistics Service to help you become an exporter.

Here is a Ecuador export business I arranged for a tour delegate who sold to the Texas Rangers.

texas rangers badge

Texas Ranger badge.

Almost everyone has heard of the Texas Rangers.  They are the oldest law enforcement body on the North American Continent and have helped bring in many famous criminals like John Wesley Hardin and Bonnie and Clyde.

We were really tickled to hear from a delegate of the Ecuador Export tours that he had sold hundreds of embossed Ecuador leather backpacks to the Texas Rangers and that was just the first order.

Here are some of the services we offer to help you export from Ecuador to the USA.

#1:    A US company.

#2:   A continuous bond, which has to be purchased each year to be eligible to register to import with the US Customs.

#3:   A broker who has a power of attorney authorizing them to handle your imports.

#4:   A US bank account to pay US customs department when taxes and duties are due.

Plus if you are selling direct to customers and accepting credit cards, you need:

#1:   A verifiable credit history and Social Security number.

#2:  A gateway company to process the charges.

#3:   A credit card merchant account.

#4: A certified, secure  shopping cart.

#5:  An annual PCI compliance review and certification

#6:  An EIN number provided by the IRS

#7:  A sales number issued by the state of Florida.

#8: A Physical US address (PO box not allowed).

#9:  Monthly accounting system.

#10: IRS annual sales report.

We can help you organize all these steps.

Our Ecuadorshop Logistics Service provides all these services for exporters.

There are two more very special benefits.

First, our logistics service can pay manufactures in Ecuador.

Second, our service can monitor production and quality and assure timely delivery.

Many people try to export and find really great products that they sell really well.   However once they return to the US they can’t restock unless they return to Ecuador.  If they do reorder but are not present for delivery, they are at the mercy of the manufacturer… which creates a huge quality control problem.  These importers get whatever suppliers here send them.

Many don’t even try to reorder.  They don’t know how.  They don’t want to wire  money without seeing the product and being are of delivery.

Many others just have no idea or find that the income is not worth the time, effort and cost of all the red tape.

The good news is that I do not get in-between the importer and buyer either.  I set a price for my service and the importer knows his product cost.

Our service is provided for a set fee so the importer knows all costs and can price his product accordingly.

This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA.   We have used this logistics service ourselves for years.  One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.  We sell Ecuador roses… charge the customer and deliver the order to our logistics service.   Everything else is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and the roses are delivered direct to the buyer.  The logistics service then charges our credit card and pays the supplier… so no money has to be wired to Ecuador.

The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes large and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.   Exporting can be fun and fulfilling as well as profitable.  Improved technology continually makes having your own global micro business easier if you have support.

Ecuador has amazing products that are unique and very affordable.  This makes them more attractive and more lucrative.  Additional to this you don’t need to make thousands of items to get a good deal.

Have a great experience in Ecuador while doing business. You will learn about Ecuador, the products and the people.

In addition to help the success of your export business Gary & Merri Scott are giving each course attendee their online course “Tangled Web How to Have an Internet Business”.   This is a $299 online course that I asked the Scotts to provide to you free.

This course focuses on how to use modern technology to start and run or improve a global micro businesses… that can create valuable extra income with minimal investments of time and capital.

You learn how to start small and build with stepping stones and a harmonious focus… how to build a successful at home business via the internet using several profit generating phrases at Google.

You gain the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income… whether you travel or stay at home.

The course shares how to create a website and utilizes the first four of “Seven Ps”  (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key word phrases.  Then you learn how to use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P is the Prospecting Path and Seventh P is the Presentation to create income.

You can gain all the facts on how to use the seven Ps to create internet sales.  The internet can support your Ecuador Export business.

Our Ecuadorshop Logistics Service provides all these services for exporters.

There are two more very special benefits.

First, our logistics service can pay manufactures in Ecuador.

Second, our service can monitor production and quality and assure timely delivery.

Many people try to export and find really great products that they sell really well.   However once they return to the US they can’t restock unless they return to Ecuador.  If they do reorder but are not present for delivery, they are at the mercy of the manufacturer… which creates a huge quality control problem.  These importers get whatever suppliers here send them.

Many don’t even try to reorder.  They don’t know how.  They don’t want to wire  money without seeing the product and being are of delivery.

Many others just have no idea or find that the income is not worth the time, effort and cost of all the red tape.

The good news is that I do not get in-between the importer and buyer either.  I set a price for my service and the importer knows his product cost.

Our service is provided for a set fee so the importer knows all costs and can price his product accordingly.

This is a great service that provides every detail for importing products into the USA.   We have used this logistics service ourselves for years.  One big benefit is that the service can send each product direct to the buyer in the USA.  We sell Ecuador roses… charge the customer and deliver the order to our logistics service.   Everything else is handled by the service.   The  tracking notice and the roses are delivered direct to the buyer.  The logistics service then charges our credit card and pays the supplier… so no money has to be wired to Ecuador.

The Ecuadorshop Logistics service makes large and medium scale Ecuador exporting possible.   Exporting can be fun and fulfilling as well as profitable.  Improved technology continually makes having your own global micro business easier if you have support.

Ecuador Beach Real Estate Near Canoa


There is a new project of Ecuador Beach Real Estate Near Canoa.

canoa-property

We have long predicted that the greatest growth on Ecuador’s coast would come north of the Chone Estuary after the bridge at Bahia was completed. This is beginning to happen now of course since the bridge was completed last year.

Here is a paid advertisement from the International Engineering and Development Company  YUMA International Compania Limitada Aprobado for community building  in Coastal Ecuador.

canoa-property

Ladera Pacifica is located in the protected dry tropical forest Hacienda el Recreo. 700 hectares bountiful with flora and fauna unique to this zone. There is much more to enjoy in coastal Ecuador besides ocean beaches washing up to your patio door.  Ecuador itself has miles of pristine beaches to explore as well as endless activities to enjoy…exploring the Galapagos and Isla de la Plata, whale watching suffing, climbing, paragliding, natural trail walking, horse riding, beach combing and enjoying your own private sunset from your new roof top terrace.

Vision of Our Gated Community

These beautifully designed homes are large and functional, at 1666.307 sq. ft (154.805 sq meters) indoor area, plus additional 2150.52 sq. ft. (174.6 sq. meters) of outdoor living.

The areas include a roof top terrace, outdoor kitchen and shower, balconies, backyard garden, as well as 500 sq. ft. of pivoting full height and width windows, taking advantage of spectacular views and fresh ocean breezes .

Evolution in Ecuador and Guess Where


Ecuador & evolution have been familiar partners for a long, long time.

See how evolution can bring opportunity in Ecuador and one new place I’ll name below.

In June 1831, the H.M.S. Beagle set sail from England under the command of Commander Robert Fitz Roy on a 4 year surveying mission that included the 22 year-old Charles Darwin, a former medical and then divinity student at Cambridge. After three years of surveying the South American coast, the Beagle reached San Cristobal Galapagos in September 1835 and spent 5 weeks carefully charting the archipelago.

Darwin made careful observations about both the geology and biology of the islands and was particularly struck by the”differences between the inhabitants of the different islands.”

That trip to Ecuador was a unique scientific opportunity that revolutionized the way much of the world thinks.

Darwin is often credited with the theory of evolution, but many other naturalists had already developed this idea by the end of the eighteenth century.  Darwin’s great contribution to science was that he solved this mystery of how and why evolution occurred. The answer, which he called natural selection, finally occurred to him in 1839.

Now in Ecuador there is a new form of evolution that Merri and I have been following for about 15 years. This is a a global evolution created by a wave of emigrants from North America.  Many of them are immigrating to Ecuador.

How Big Is the Emigration?

We can get a feel of this wave of  Canadians and Americans leaving their homeland from a survey done by Zogby International of adult Americans on the subject of relocation outside the U.S.

With more than 115,000 respondents, the organizer of this survey had  the largest and perhaps only database on this topic.

Zogby wrote:  A total of 103,645 adult Americans were surveyed in six polls conducted from September of 2005 through December of 2006. The margins of error range from roughly six-tenths of one percent to one percent. Because the words “migration” and “migrant’ have different meanings to different people, we chose to use the words “relocation” and “relocator”.

Results shown below are from our most recent December 2006 survey of more than 21,000 Americans, unless otherwise noted in the text.

Surveys of this sort begin with one “gateway” question and a set of responses that divides re- spondents into categories before moving on to more specific questions suitable to each category. Our “gateway” question was as follows:

Are you planning to relocate to another nation for more than two years for reasons other than the requirements of the military, the government or your job?

This was intended to narrow our results to those who were voluntarily relocating. Our responses were as follows:

Expat-study

Then they asked where

Expat-study

and looked at age

Expat-study

and how much they planned to spend.

Expat-study

Plus their income breakdown and…

Expat-study

where they would go by income group.

Expat-study

Here is what I gained from studying this report.

#1: About 13 million Americans planned to leave the US full or part time or at least own property abroad.  

#2:  The areas of greatest interest in order were Europe, Canada, Central America (read Mexico) and South America.

#3:  The age groups most interested in moving were aged 18 to 30.

#4: The group with the largest percentage who were moving were those with income over $100,000.

#5: That the largest percentage of those planning to buy abroad expected to invest $100,000 – $299,999.

#6: That the largest percentage planning to buy in South America are in the mid range income ($35,000 to $40,000) a year.

#7:  Not in the report but it has been our belief… that we are now seeing as fact is that Ecuador will get a large percentage of the South American expats.

Changes From 2007

That study was undertaken in 2005 and 2006 at the height of the Western world’s easy credit, real estate bubble… before it burst.

Many people were feeling very different about money at that time.

I suspect that if the the survey were taken now the numbers would be larger but for different… more economically pressing reasons.

Fortunately we have something even better than research like the Zogby study.  We have experience.   Research shows what people say they are going to do.

Having brought thousands of people to Ecuador… we have observed what people actually do.

To date a majority of readers and delegates by far have purchased and or settled mainly in three areas: Imbabura, Cuenca and Ecuador’s mid coast.

Potential Bumps Up as Well

Each of these three areas has also have potential good news that will make them even more attractive.  Imbabura has been a bit far from the Quito Airport… almost two hours away.  Quito’s new airport is 45 minutes closer to Imbabura, almost done… the access roads are being put in and December 2012  is the planned opening.

The new Quito Airport may also give Cuenca some help.  The existing airports in Quito and in Cuenca are in town, close to heavy population and cannot be expanded.  Their short runways prohibit day lift offs of fully loaded large planes so all international flights tend to land late at night thus requiring Cuenca travelers to spend a night in Quito.

The new Quito Airport is at a lower altitude and have longer runways (international standards) so flights may arrive in time to allow connections to Cuenca the same day.

Bahia… the town to be on Ecuador’s mid coast  was blocked by the Chone Estuary… and often a two hour wait for a ferry. A bridge across the Chone is now complete. New roads from Quito have also been built and I predict that soon the airport in San Vicente (for Bahia) will be  expanded.

All of this means that these three areas are likely to become even more attractive.

On top of this, there is another great asset that will help Ecuador evolve:  US real estate developers.

Many developers who have great skill but are in trouble or out of business up north are bringing their skills down south.

This adds two benefits.  First, many of these developers really are good. They have a lot more experience than Latin developers.

Second, many of these developers are thinking sustainable! Part of the evolution in North America will help real estate construction in South America.

Take, for example, the US developer, Warren Adams, who purchased about 60,000 ares in Patagonia.

A Fortune article at management.fortune.cnn.com/2011/03/10/warren-adams-searching-for-profits-and-saving-patagonia/

Says:  Warren Adams, As I warm by a fire in the living room of the Patagonia Sur eco-lodge, Adams, a lean, athletic man whose green eyes relay a quiet intensity, explains that Melimoyu (pronounced melly-moy-you) is only one of six holdings that Patagonia Sur (sur means “south” in Spanish) owns in the region. In all, the company has bought some 60,000 acres — about half the size of New York City — in some of the most remote and beautiful areas of Chile (see map). On this land the company plans to engineer as many as 10 profitable, environmentally sustainable businesses. The goal: to create proof that land can be developed for profit and remain unharmed, a vastly different theory from previous schools of land management. “It’s a model,” says Adams, “we hope to scale in developing nations around the world.”

He may sound like a wide-eyed visionary jousting at green windmills, but Adams is backed by an impressive roster of 40 hard-nosed investors who have put up a total of $20 million so far. (The company hopes to raise as much as $200 million.) They include Howard Stevenson, a professor of entrepreneurship at the Harvard Business School, and John Fisher, founding partner of the Silicon Valley VC firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

So far Adams has created three income streams — an ecotourism venture that works on a vacation club/membership-fee model, a land brokerage, and a carbon-offset business that sells credits to schools and corporations. In the future Adams plans to sell land for vacation home and eco-lodge developments and consult with local salmon farms on how to fish more sustainably. Perhaps one of his most original ideas is to float millions of gallons of pure water in giant baggies from his glaciers to drought-stricken areas of the world, but more on that later.

Adams has no illusions about the difficulty of his task. When asked what keeps him up at night, he says he worries about achieving a balance between development and conservation. At what point does sustainable development become exploitative? How many ecotourists and vacation homes are too many? What effect will taking millions of gallons of water from his land to sell overseas have on the ecosystem? Adams is creating the first private land trust in Patagonia to permanently protect the company’s land. Will it hold up in the courts if challenged? Will powerful mining and agricultural interests in Chile start eyeing its gold and timber wealth as Patagonia becomes more open to the outside world?

The Kalu Yala development in Panama is another good example and says:  Kalu Yala is on a mission to change the way the world builds, invests and lives. To change the way the world builds by using open collective input to design places that are right for their location, their community and their purposes beyond those which can be measured in dollars. To change the way the world invests by searching for the true complexities and risks of investing in order to make long-term commitments to building value through the creation of rare and authentic places. And to change the way the world lives by making people aware of how the places where we live affect our quality of life and how we can have a voice in determining what those places are.

We believe sustainability is what used to be called practicality. And that social and environmental responsibility are what build the social and environmental capital that make great communities both more resilient and more valuable than most of what has been built in the last fifty years. Kalu Yala is simply an answer to the questions we have encountered over our lives and in the last four years of working in a special place during a difficult economy. With your help, we hope to get them right, to unearth the questions that still need answering and to share these answers with the world so that all who wish might be able to use them.

A truly sustainable community, Kalu Yala is founded on the core tenants of culture, new urbanism architecture, organic food, wellness, recreation, education, preservation and conservation of the natural environment. Kalu Yala will be designed using an innovative process called “Naked Development”. This transparent and collaborative effort utilizes input from innovative leaders in organic farming, finance, sustainable architecture, community design, future residents of Kalu Yala and the online audience. The result is a living community model, able to evolve in response to the demands of its visitors and residents, and driven by social, environmental and economic purpose.

In short, property developers are evolving also. Perhaps hardships in North American real estate have provided the lessons that teach there is more to developing than squeezing our short term profit from every square inch of land.

This is while we’ll be keeping an eye on the Hacienda Palo Alto development in Cabuyal north of Bahia Ecuador.

Here is a Bahia Ecuador development update.

bahia-beach

We have long written that when the bridge over the Chone was complete, the coast from San Clemente to Canoa to Pedernales would be one of the best investment opportunities on the planet.   There is plenty of demand for coastal real estate in this area, but there has been a lack of quality product with just one good development in Jama

Now a Latin developer, with US roots… Unexpected Development, is building in this area.  It is also involved in several projects in Ecuador, Uruguay and Honduras.

Unexpected Development is starting a new opportunity on the coast of Ecuador, called Hacienda Palo Alto, which consists of 183.5 hectares (453 acres) with 1.2 kilometers (appx. .72 miles) , of which 955 meters (appx. 3,000 ft.) is for the development/houses etc.

Hacienda Palo Alto is about 22 miles north of Bahia de Caraquez.

See more pictures of the property here.

This is what the beach looks like looking to the south:

bahia-beach

The property is lush with flora and fauna, and features howler monkeys, parrots, wild orchids, streams, and a river. There are many hiking and horseback trails that have already been created, and 300 teak trees, 600 white cedar, and 400 maracuyá (passion fruit trees) have recently been planted, as well as hundreds of palm trees lining the beach.

Unexpected Development is conserving and preserving a majority of the land and will build on only a small portion.

The company has its residential split and urbanization permits for 166 lots with an average size of roughly a half-acre lots and plans to begin selling lots in the next couple of months.

Unexpected Development is sponsoring an updated Bahia Report offered free to our readers.  Sign up for the FREE Bahia report here.

Ecuador Coastal Condo Update


Here is an Ecuador coastal condo update at Vistazul.

Ecuador-beach-property

The Vistazul project is still, in my opinion, one of the best values on Ecuador’s coast. $79,000 for a brand new 1,200 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo with balconies, roof garden with sea views, and an exquisite on the beach club house, just 133 steps away from the condos.

These condos are also extra special because they are on a dead end road with hills behind and no other place to build in front of the units.  The residents have also been very active in keeping development at a low impact level… so this is a natural quiet area… that will stay this way!

Here you can see what I mean.

ecuador-beach-condo

I took this photo from the hills at the end of the dead end road. The white buildings you see at the base of the hill in the distance is Vistazul. This environment in this area from Vistazul up to where I took the photo has been aggressively protected by the residents. The developer of this project Kjetil Haugan worked with his neighbors here for years to create a low impact development that was acceptable to the community.

Kjetil just sent me this note.

Gary, We are doing the roads at Vistazul right now. I’ll send photos as this is complete.

Ecuador Beach Condo For Sale Near Atacames-Tonsupa


Here is a paid advertisement of an Ecuador beach condo near Atacames-Tonsupa in this complex, with…

Ecuador-beach-condo

this Ecuador beach view.

Ecuador-beach-condo

Friends and long term readers Bill Bushnel and Leita Hulmes (also partners in Villa Nova Inn in Cuenca) sent this advertisement.

We have a condo for sale in Edificio Sunrise in Puerto Gaviota.  This is a blossoming, secure development of mid and high rise condominiums on the northern edge of Atacames-Tonsupa on what is referred to as the northwest coast of Ecuador.

One of the key attractions to this area’a beach is the warm waters of the Panama Current rather the colder Humboldt Current that  the majority of Ecuador’s beaches.

This area is located on an “uplift” coast which means that the beach is protected from the effects of rising sea level. The building is further protected from tidal increases by a 10 foot scarp (cliff).  It is also located on the back of a 1,500 foot lot as you can see from the pictures on suparenta.com.  If you want, or need, additional pictures we can certainly supply them.  The Puerto Gaviota area is expanding rapidly and prices are sky rocketing as more and more “gringos” and folks from Quito and other mountain towns  are buying in the area with its great beach, restaurants, super market, and easy convenience to Esmeraldas Airport.  New construction is booming.

Our 8th floor view, considered among the best on the entire coast, is protected by low-rise projects to our north and south.  The main reason we are selling is that we have decided to spend our “off” time traveling around the world.

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety

garyheadshot

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why the core Pi model portfolio (that forms the bulk of my own equity portfolio) consists of 19 shares and this position has not changed in over two years.  During these two years we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have not traded once.

The portfolio has done well in 2017, up 22.6%, better than the DJI Index.

motif

However one or even two year’s performance is not enough data to create a safe strategy.

The good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management and the mathematical trend analysis of Tradestops.com.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Fwd: keppler

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

Pi uses math to reveal the best value markets then protects its positions using more math created by Richard Smith founder and CEO of Tradestops.com to track each share’s trend.

We use Smith’s  algorithms that calculate momentum of the good value markets.

Akey component of the Stock State Indicator (SSI) system is momentum based on the latest 521 days of trading.  A stock changes from red to green in the SSI system only after it has already gone up a healthy amount and has started a solid uptrend.

How SSI Alerts Are Triggered

If the position has already moved more than its Volatility Quotient below a recent high, the SSI Stop Loss will trigger.  This is an indicator that the position has corrected more than what is normal for this stock.  It means to take caution.

Below is an example of how SSIs work.  This example shows the Developed Market Pifolio that we track at Tradestops.com.

Equal Weight Good Value Developed Market Pifolio.

At the time this example was copied, all the ETFs in the Developed Market Pifolio (above) currently had a green SSI.

We do not know when the US market will fall.  We only do know that it will.  We also do not know if, when the US market corrects, global markets will follow or rise instead.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in good value markets reduces long term risk.

Additional protection is added by using trailing stops based on the 521 day momentum of each stock in the Pifolio.

Take for example the graph below from our Tradestops account that shows the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF.  This ETF had a green SSI and a Volatility Index (VQ) of 13.26%.  This means the share can move 13.26% before there is a trend shift.

iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (Symbol EWU)

Pi purchased the share at$31.26 and in this example the share was $34.43 and rising.  Tradestop’s algorithms suggested that if the price drops to $31.69 its momentum would have stopped and it would have shifted into trading sideways.   The stop loss price is currently $29.86.  If EWU continues to rise, both the yellow warning and the stop loss price will rise as well.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Platinum Dip 2018” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and added how to use the Dip Strategy with platinum.   The “Platinum Dip 2018” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Platinum Dip 2018” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

In 2018 I celebrate my 52nd anniversary in the investing business and 50th year of writing about global investing.  Our reports and seminars have helped readers have better lives, with less stress yet make fortunes during up and down markets for decades.  This information is invaluable to investors large and small because even small amounts can easily be invested in the good value shares we cover in our seminar.

Stock and currency markets are cyclical.  These cycles create extra profit for value investors who invest when everyone else has the markets wrong.  One special seminar session looks at how to spot value from cycles.  Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics.  Cycles create recurring profits.  Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 to 20 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns can create war.

The chart above shows the war – stock market cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WW III) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Details in the online seminar include:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios). His big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of out performance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  The best ratio is normally 1.6 to 1.  We’ll sum up the strategy; how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on the times and each individual’s circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.
