Going for Broke: The High Return and High Risks of Pre-IPO Private Placements
Released on Wednesday, October 14, 2020•PRE IPO
Pre-IPO can be "ten baggers" (1000% on your money) or financial disasters. Dr. Mark Skousen has invested in dozens of private placements, insider deals, and tax shelters over his 40-year career on Wall Street. Some have proven to be multi-million-dollar winners, while others have become wallpaper in his bathroom. In this timely session, Dr. Skousen, editor of the award-winning Forecasts & Strategies since 1980, will reveal his best and worst private investment, and what he has discovered in the wily world of high finance. He is especially bullish on exploratory and developmental "penny" stocks right now.
Mark Skousen, PhD, was recently named one of the top 20 living economists in the world (www.superscholar.org
). In 2018, Steve Forbes presented him with the Triple Crown in Economics for his work in theory, history and education. Dr. Skousen has been a Presidential Fellow at Chapman University in California since 2014, and has the unique distinction of having worked for the government (CIA), non-profits (president of FEE), and several for-profit companies. In 2004-05, Dr. Skousen taught economics and finance at Columbia Business School and Columbia University. Since 1980, he has been editor-in-chief of Forecasts & Strategies, a popular award-winning investment newsletter. Dr. Skousen was an analyst for the CIA, a columnist for Forbes magazine, chairman of Investment U, and past president of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) in New York. He is the editor of his own Web site, www.markskousen.com , and is the producer of FreedomFest, "the world's largest gathering of free minds," which meets every July in Las Vegas (www.freedomfest.com ). He has written for the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the Christian Science Monitor, and has made regular appearances on CNBC's Kudlow & Co., the Santelli Exchange, and C-SPAN Book TV. Dr. Skousens bestsellers include The Making of Modern Economics, Investing in One Lesson, and The Maxims of Wall Street. His latest book is A Viennese Waltz Down Wall Street: Austrian Economics for Investors. In honor of Dr. Skousen's work in economics, finance, and management, Grantham University renamed its business school The Mark Skousen School of Business. Based on his work, The Structure of Production (NYU Press, 1990), the federal government began publishing in Spring 2014 a broader, more accurate measure of the economy, Gross Output (GO), every quarter along with GDP.
