Greg McCoach's Special Situations Report evolved from years of writing his other two successful newsletters, (The Mining Speculator and Insider Alert which deal with the mining shares), and his desire to find other ground floor opportunities in new industries, new technologies, or emerging markets.
Venture capitalists and those who look for such ground floor opportunities with a knack for the 1,000x, know that true innovations don't follow a pattern. The future is always stranger than we expect: mobile phones and the Internet, not flying cars.
Doug Leone, one of the leaders of Sequoia Capital, by consensus Silicon Valley's top firm, said:
"The biggest outcomes occur when you break your previous mental model. The black-swan events of the past forty years – the PC, the router, the Internet, the iPhone – nobody had thesis around those ideas. So what's useful to us is having Dumbo ears."
A great V.C. keeps his ears pricked for a disturbing story with the elements of a fairy tale. This tale begins in another age (which happens to be the future), and features a lowborn hero who knows a secret from his hardscrabble experience. The hero encounters royalty (the V.C.s) who test him, and he harnesses magic (technology) to prevail. The tale ends in heaping treasure chests for all, borne home on the unicorn's back.
We've all heard the stories of investors closing obscene percentage gains on such early-stage venture capital investments.
Companies like Microsoft, Apple, Facebook all traded at one point for just a small sum of money and were considered tiny startups, before becoming the multi-billion dollar behemoths they are today.
The problem is as an investor, all you do is hear about these stories after the fact because you're not one of the insiders, and have no access to such early stage private companies.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Right now, as you read this, there are companies out there, trading on the markets, with their stock available to you, which have the same kind of growth potential as Facebook, or Google, or Twitter, or any of the big household names which made other people rich in the last few years.
They're still small... Sometimes downright tiny at less than $30 million market capitalization, but that's exactly the stage you want to find a company if you want to maximize your profit potential.
I remember the first time I sold a stock for a 10x gain, and how exciting it was to experience that kind of return. I want to help you experience this as well.
Right now, the market for early stage opportunities has never been more active, or more fertile with new ideas, processes and technologies that will be shaping our world for decades to come.
And as history has shown, there is no faster way to build a small investment into a true nest egg than by nailing the early stage or technology play at just the right moment.
What stops most people? Fear of risk.
But as I found over time, you can't make big money unless you are willing to take some risks in life. It's just the way things work.
So, with your subscription to Greg's Special Situations Report, you will be on an inside track to learning about some great early stage opportunities that have the potential to deliver exponential gains.

"When I first met you, you told me I could use the profits I would make in the mining stocks to pay off my house. I didn’t really believe you. Two and half years later I wrote a check to do just that. I never thought this would be possible. Thank you so much for your wise guidance."

Greg McCoach, editor of The Mining Speculator, was featured on CNBC in 2007 and was asked his opinion on gold prices. At the time, gold was trading for $637/ounce. He predicted Gold to go over $1,000/ounce in a 12-24 month period. Of course he was right!
