Olivier Garret, CEO
HAVE IT ALL
with Casey's Club
A limited-time invitation from Olivier Garret, Partner and CEO Casey Research
Casey's Club was initially founded by Doug Casey, David Galland, and myself as our way of rewarding our very best subscribers by allowing them to take advantage of all of our services, and to do so at an exceptional value.
Specifically, members have complete access to all of our services, including any new publications we offer in the future... for the rest of their lives. They can even pass on their memberships to their children.
- And all for a one-time, deeply discounted flat fee, plus a very modest annual maintenance fee to help offset inflation.
Joining Casey's Club several years ago was one of my best investment-related decisions in a long time. Not only do I get the most in-depth resource-based investment information I have yet found but also direct access to researchers/writers at the several VIP events held each year. I would not hesitate to join Casey's Club if I were not already a member, now that I understand the depth of benefits membership provides."
– Carl J.
How deeply discounted?
The one-time initiation fee adds up to more than 15% less than what you'd pay for these services for a single year. Yet the benefits extend year after year, for the rest of your lifetime… and beyond.
When we first started Casey's Club in 2009, we expected to be able to regularly open the doors to new members. However, the response was so overwhelming that we were forced to close the doors for an extended period of time.
That's because we can't allow the premium alert services included with membership to grow too large without risk of unduly affecting the small-cap, high-octane markets they focus on.
As a consequence, we have only been able to open the doors to new members approximately once a year – as we are doing now – but for a limited number of new members and for a very limited period of time.
What's Included in Membership
When you join Casey's Club during the current enrollment period that ends on January 17, 2013 – or whenever the available memberships are gone, whichever comes first – you'll pay a one-time flat fee and receive the following services for the rest of your life.
Casey Investment Alert
Cost: $4,500 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership.
This premium alert service delivers timely advice on fast-moving, early-stage opportunities with explosive upside. The focus is on early-stage precious-metals exploration companies. And the timing couldn't be better, as a recent market shakeout has put a number of screaming bargains on the radar screens of Louis James and his globe-trotting team of analysts.
"I'm excited about the exceptional volatility I see ahead for 2013. Disciplined speculators will be able to make a lot of money by waiting for the volatility to give them chances to buy low and then taking profits whenever they have them.
As an example, in the Casey Investment Alert we just recommended buying stock in a company we've liked for years, but held off recommending until now because of what we believed was market valuation well in excess of what the company could claim to have in asset value in the ground.
Fast forward to last week: market volatility and tax-loss selling put these shares on sale for 70% off, just as the company released an excellent first-pass 43-101-compliant gold resource estimate. The company went from having essentially no proven resources to having what looks to have the potential to turn into a world-class deposit – and it has plenty of cash to advance it. By being disciplined, we pretty much bottom-ticked our entry point and are now tucked in for what should be a very exciting and profitable ride.
That's exactly the kind of opportunity we're currently watching for most closely."
Casey Energy Confidential
Cost: $4,500 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
Marin Katusa's premium alert service is dedicated to uncovering special situations in the all-important energy sector. Marin and his team are relentless in finding early-stage companies on the verge of a breakout, as well as those offering especially attractive private placements, delivering the extraordinary upside potential that is the hallmark of our dynamic Alert services.
"I've come across a company whose principals were key players in developing the Bakken Oil Shale formation before their company got bought out by ConocoPhillips.
Their new company has built up an inventory of assets that are geologically comparable to the Bakken, but better in my opinion because in the area they are now working, the company gets paid in the higher Brent prices, and there's no fracking required. The chairman is so convinced of the new company's potential that he put $20 million of his own money into the only private placement the company has done in the last six years.
All told, the company has locked up the rights to over 500,000 acres in 5 production licenses and 3 exploration licenses, primarily in northwestern Germany. All the production licenses are mature fields that were abandoned in the early 1990s when the price of oil was low and modern technologies were not yet available. The strategy is to re-enter these abandoned fields and use the latest horizontal drilling technologies to maximize recovery. As these are wells in formerly producing basins rather than wildcat wells, the drilling risk is much lower.
As an aside, this was the same strategy used to unlock the potential of the Bakken.
Compared to North Dakota, northwestern German fields have several advantages: lower transportation costs, less competition for quality acreage, as well as oil being sold at Brent instead of WTI Prices.
There's much more to the company than this, including a farm-in agreement with GDF Suez, one of the largest utilities in Europe, on a very prospective field in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The company is cashed up, has the land, the drill targets, and will be drilling in 2013. In my view, this stock has 10-bagger potential."
(Ed. Note: When Marin says "10-bagger potential," he refers to the potential of earning a 1,000% investment return – so that for every $1,000 you invest, a return of $10,000 is possible. Unlike pretty much any other investment services available, the Casey Research premium Alert services are focused on finding resource companies that have truly life-changing profit potential for early-stage investors.)
Casey Extraordinary Technology
Cost: $995 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
Led by senior tech executive Alex Daley, Casey Extraordinary Technology offers a unique hybrid consisting of an alert service and a comprehensive monthly letter, ensuring that you are in the top 1% of the public in understanding today's rapidly evolving technology, and in the top 0.0001% in understanding how to profit from it. While other sectors have struggled over the past year, Casey's Club members have enjoyed serious profits from game-changing technology plays.
"Technology has been through a lot more ups than downs over the past three years, and the result is a very inflated market for the biggest names and most visible companies.
Fortunately, as we've proven with big wins for readers, with smaller companies occupying new niches or chipping away at old ones with more efficient technology -- such as Amylin in diabetes management, Celsion in improved chemotherapy, Fortinet in network security -- you can find fantastic opportunities in places where the mainstream investment managers and brokers are not yet looking. By being even just a few months ahead of the curve, you can find great companies with game-changing technology that have yet to be discovered and understood for the value they are creating.
One of my favorite such small investments right now is in molecular testing – applying the work of the human genome project to better medical diagnostics. One company we are following is just now coming to market with the first of a series of new tests, this one for Down Syndrome (AKA trisomy 21). Unlike the current test, which requires taking a sample from amniotic fluid – a dangerous and painful procedure – this company's is a simple blood test for Mom. It can be done earlier, it costs far less, is many times safer, and results are available much faster.
The combination will win this company the majority share in the market, but also expand the test from one used only in extreme cases to a regular checkbox on the list of OB-GYNs across the country and the world. They have excellent patent protection, leaving the market wide open for them and protected for many years to come. And they have excellent peer-reviewed published data to support the quality of the tests that will make the sales process that much smoother."
Casey International Speculator
Cost: $995 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
One of the world's longest-running, most-respected advisory services, the team of International Speculator and its managing editor Louis James are dedicated to identifying companies in the junior US and Canadian resource-exploration sector that have cleared key hurdles and are poised for big upward moves.
Casey Energy Report
Cost: $995 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
While the revolution of extracting shale gas using unconventional methodologies such as fracking is currently the hot topic among energy-investment circles, Marin Katusa and his team were writing about the coming sea change in natural gas as far back as September 2007.
It is just this sort of ahead-of-the-curve analysis that the Casey Energy Report is designed to provide: an insider's view of today's most exciting energy trends in oil, gas, uranium, and alternative energy, and the specific ways to play them.
The Casey Report
Cost: $349 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
Each month the flagship publication of Casey Research brings together the work of an eclectic team of analysts, including Doug Casey, Bud Conrad, and Terry Coxon.
Along with senior researcher and managing editor Dan Steinhart and strategist Aaron Bedrick, the team shares its latest thinking on the powerful trends dominating the global economy and investment markets.
The research team then adjusts its broad portfolio of recommended investments, including dividend stocks, precious metals, special situations, and even options strategies in order to optimize profits while minimizing risks. It's a one-stop service designed to help you stay closely in touch with the big trends and the best ways to profit (or, in some cases, avoid losses!)
"It's all about bubbles. The government helped create one in tech stocks that burst in 2000. Then one in real estate that burst in 2007. Now we're in a bond bubble, which is the biggest of all.
The next one will be in precious metals, with perhaps a super-bubble in mining stocks, which are close to their best values in history.
In agriculture, the best place to be is cattle – prices are low in real terms, despite the fact that herds are the same size they were 60 years ago when there were less than 3 billion people on the planet. Today the global population has risen to 7 billion, and the percentage of people who are wealthy enough to afford meat has grown exponentially."
"Due to the interference of central banks working closely with their friends in the banks and large financial institutions, interest rates in most large developed economies are way below what sensible economic analysis would suggest.
Given our completely unsupported currency system, where no currency is redeemable for anything of specific value and central banks are ratcheting up the money printing to unprecedented levels, today's low interest rates – now at 50-year lows – ignore the risk of potential currency depreciation (inflation). The turnaround in interest rates – and they must head higher – will be the biggest financial event of the century and without question the most important investment opportunity for the decade ahead."
"The shale-gas revolution is causing an interesting knock-on effect in the US chemical industry. Because natural gas has become so cheap compared to oil, chemical producers are abandoning oil as a feedstock in favor of natural gas. To make a long story short, this switch-up has altered the byproducts spit out from this process, creating a supply/demand imbalance for a chemical called propylene.
Most people outside of the chemical industry have never heard of propylene, but it's the second most-used chemical commodity in the world. It's found in paints, building materials, automotive parts, packaging, and a wide range of plastic products, to name a few. Demand for propylene is steadily growing, but because natural gas is so cheap, North American production is declining.
One company we have just begun following foresaw this situation and built a propylene plant to fill the production gap. This is the only such plant in North America, and because these plants take years to build, it will be the only one until at least 2015. Over the next two years, the company will enjoy a built-in market, virtually zero competition, and extremely favorable supply-demand dynamics. It's quite the window of opportunity, and if the company can execute as we expect it to, shareholders should profit handsomely."
Cost: $129 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
In BIG GOLD, Jeff Clark provides a quick-reading monthly overview of the precious-metals markets, then updates an easy-to-maintain portfolio of mid- to large-cap gold and silver producers, precious metals ETFs and mutual funds, the best ways to buy and sell precious metals, and more.
"I'm most excited about gold and silver producers. Not only are they deeply undervalued, but this will be the first place the public goes when they want equity exposure to this industry. Just catching up to where they 'should' be – relative to where gold is trading – implies prices will eventually have to move much higher.
For example, one company's fair value, based on its Reserves and a $1,700 gold price, is in the neighborhood of $110 – but it's currently selling for about $37. Most producers show similar undervaluation.
Of course, there's no law that says that they have to reach these levels, but once precious metals resume their rally and investors remember the stocks of producing gold and silver companies, I think the catch-up opportunity for carefully selected stocks could be tremendous. Now is the time to begin buying, but with the caveat that not all precious metals producers are created equal. Buy the best and forget the rest."
Casey Energy Dividends
Cost: $79 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
A monthly service in which Marin Katusa and senior energy researcher Joe Hung scan the world for well-run, mid- to large-cap companies in the all-important energy sector that offer an attractive combination of steady dividends and the strong potential of capital gains from appreciation. As a reader, each month you'll be presented with one or two thoroughly researched dividend-paying candidates for inclusion in your portfolio.
Miller's Money Forever
Cost: $199 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
New this year, Money Forever is designed for anyone currently retired or hoping to be in a few years. You'll benefit from senior editor Dennis Miller's plain talk about how to invest for maximum growth and income, while aggressively protecting your principal.
As a member, you have our permission to share this invaluable guide to building and preserving retirement wealth with your family.
Your subscription comes with a copy of Dennis Miller's new book, Retirement Reboot.
"We recently screened thousands of companies to identify what are clearly undervalued dividend streams. We then evaluated the companies based on our Five-Point Balancing Test, a proprietary model that tells us if an investment is suitable for people in or near retirement.
The work we did led us to a major pharmaceutical company whose dividend has been consistently growing over the past five years. Second, the yield is a sizeable 3.8%. Third – and maybe most important in the current uncertain markets – it has a five-year beta of 0.17. That tells us that the stock has a mind of its own, separate from tensions in the market.
A beta of one means that a stock moves perfectly with the rest of the market. A beta of 0.17 means that if the market moved 10%, this company would – in theory – only drop 1.7%. With this extremely low beta, the company is way more defensive than most stocks out there. That's just the sort of company we think our dividend-seeking readers need to be paying attention to just now."
Cost: $149 per year. Included with Casey's Club membership
The latest service from the Casey Technology team provides an insider's analysis of today's most dynamic big-technology companies.
Rather than being slow-moving elephants, certain big-tech companies manage to continually break out to new highs – in good economic conditions and bad – thanks to brilliant innovations and transformational technologies, allowing investors in the know to reap profits all along the way.
BIG TECH is geared up to be THE premier research service on big-technology stocks, filled with fascinating insights on today's most important technologies and actionable investment research… all presented in plain English.
"We have just initiated coverage on a large technology manufacturing firm – a household name – with a forward P/E of just 4.24, an almost depression-level valuation.
The market's main concern with the company is that the PC, a major product line for the company, is headed for virtual extinction because of the advent of smartphones and tablets. You read about it all the time. Everyone is calling for the 'Death of the PC.'
But IDC, a tech research firm, estimates that global PC sales will actually increase in the next few years from just under 400 million units in 2012 to nearly 530 million units in 2016. Even if we adopt the market's bearish view on PCs and assume an immediate 50% decrease in PC revenues, all other things remaining equal, our evaluation tells us that the company's fundamentals still warrant a higher share price.
The company is currently trading for around $14, well below our target price of $24. So we have a well-known, global brand selling for a 41% discount – that's just the sort of company that gets our attention."

– Questions & Answers —
About joining Casey's Club
Q. What is the Club's refund policy?
As a new member, you have up to 30 days to request a refund – time enough to decide that the comprehensive services offered to members is right for you. After that, no refunds are available though you may, of course, decide not to renew your membership in following years. If it is any comfort, since opening Casey's Club in 2009 we have received almost no refund requests, and the vast majority of members remain in good standing.
The initial upfront investment in joining Casey's Club has been returned to me many times over in the form of profitable investment ideas. For example, by gaining access to some of the private placements which have been brought to my attention.
I have also appreciated the opportunities to network with other Casey's Club members, Casey editors, and industry heavyweights at Casey conferences and other industry gatherings. Casey's Club even gave me an incredible opportunity to tour a working copper mine and its massive primary crusher and ball mill facility where I was able to spend time with the top management of the firm and spend time with Casey editors in a private and intimate setting.
I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year." – Bill
Q. When will you begin charging me the annual maintenance fee?

When joining, most members provide a credit card for the purposes of paying the annual maintenance fee, which isn't charged until the end of the first year, and on the anniversary of your joining each year thereafter (unless you let us know you wish it to stop, of course).
Not to worry: if there is ever a problem with processing your annual maintenance fee, we will reach out to you to resolve it so that your membership always remains in good standing.
