100X Club Review (Legit Paul Mampilly Service?)

Today I received an email from Paul Mampilly about a “revolutionary research service” he calls 100X Club.

Apparently, members of this “club” get insights into Paul’s most “elite caliber stocks”, which he says could help you 100 times your investment.

I was curious, so I decided to dig deeper.

Is it legit? 100X Club isn’t a scam, it’s a real newsletter service created by investor Paul Mampilly, who shares insights and stock recommendations based on his research. But at a price point of $10,000, there’s a significant amount of risk involved, and not everyone who joins will make money.

Let’s take a closer look at what this service is all about, who’s behind it and whether or not it’s something worth getting involved with.

The 100X Summit (AKA Sales Pitch)

I first discovered 100X Club through an email I received from Paul, who basically said he had something amazing he wanted to share with me.

After reading the email and clicking on the link, I was immediately taken to a video presentation featuring Corinna Sullivan and Paul Mampilly called “100X Summit”.

Which isn’t really an “event” or “summit”, it’s a video presentation:

The 100X Summit with Paul Mampilly and Corinna Sullivan

The presentation began with Corinna talking up Paul, basically saying how amazing he is (cringe), which then led into a back and forth discussion about Paul’s investment strategy.

It was kind of similar to other Paul Mampilly “summits” I’ve come across over the years, like $10 Million Portfolio Summit, Rapid Profits Summit and America 2.0 for example.

He basically uses these presentations as a way to promote his newsletter services, which must work for him since he’s one of the more popular investment gurus out there.

Anyway, I continued watching the presentation to learn more.

To sum it up, Paul talks about a new strategy he’s developed that centers around mega trends like precision medicine, the Internet of Things (IOT), blockchain tech and artificial intelligence.

And how it has the potential to make you over 10,000% gains, and turn a small investment into a million dollar windfall.

He even provides some proof of this during the video:

However, the above “triple-digit winners” example references gains he has made across many stock investments and different investing methods, over a period of years.

Whereas his 100X strategy is all about making these types of gains with just a handful of trades. And specifically focusses on overlooked, small cap, publicly traded stocks.

The presentation continues with Paul mentioning three specific stocks he has his eye on, and how he has identified these.

And eventually, after watching the presentation for over an hour, we learn that in order to get our hands on this strategy, and the stocks he’s talking about, you’ll need to join 100X Club.

What Is Paul Mampilly’s 100X Club?

100X Club is a newsletter service created by Paul Mampilly, and published by Banyan Hill, that gives you access to stock recommendations that, according to Paul, could make you a 100x return.

Paul says this is his most powerful, highest profit potential, strategy out of all the newsletter services he manages, and that it works even if you’re starting out with just $1,000.

How much does it cost?

A subscription to 100X Club costs $10,000 for the first year and $995 every year thereafter that you maintain your subscription.

One thing’s for sure, this is the most expensive subscription I’ve seen out of all Paul Mampilly’s services I’ve reviewed to date.

To give you an idea, the closest alternative newsletter he sells is called $10 Million Portfolio which costs $4,995 per year. And most of his other subscriptions cost around $2-$3K. Like True Momentum which costs $1,995 and Extreme Fortunes which costs $2,995 for example.

All of which promise large returns.

In fact, pretty much all of Paul’s services say you can strike it rich by following his recommendations. And, like 100X Club, they almost all revolve around investing in “mega trends”.

The biggest difference with 100X Club is that it’s more about lazer focussing on a small number of “100 bagger stocks” that he believes could make you 10,000% plus gains.

Let’s take a closer look at how it works.

How Does 100X Club Work?

As mentioned, 100X Club is a newsletter service, so you first need to purchase a subscription through the Banyan Hill website, which then gives you access to Paul’s service.

How does Paul choose the “100 bagger” stocks he recommends? He looks at 20 key characteristics to identify and narrow down the stocks he believes will make the highest possible return.

Here are the main aspects of Paul’s 100X criteria:

  • Must be a publicly traded company
  • Is a niche business
  • The market capitalization is less than $300 million
  • The share price is less than $10
  • Company has been operating for over 5 years
  • Has good cashflow and profit margins

The core of Paul’s strategy is about looking for small, overlooked niche businesses that he thinks have the potential to dominate their respective industry, and explode in price.

In other words, it’s about investing in small cap stocks.

To illustrate the potential of this strategy, Paul uses the example of companies like Monster Energy, who’s stock started off dirt cheap, before going up significantly when they began dominating the energy drink space.

Is this a good strategy?

On one hand, this can be a good way to make a potentially large return on your investment. Simply because the stock price is so low, and if you choose a winning company, all it needs to do is go from $5 to $500 per share, or 12 cents to $12 per share, for you to make 100x returns (10,000%).

But this strategy is also super risky.

Because first of all, it’s highly speculative, since you’re betting big that a specific company is going to go way up in value.

Second, it’s risky because there’s such a low level of investment in these stocks, which makes them extremely volatile to trade. The stock price of small cap stocks (AKA microcap stocks) can fluctuate a LOT more than larger cap stocks like Apple or Amazon for example, or an ETF like the S&P 500.

This video explains more about the difference between small vs large cap stocks:

The good news is that Paul has a very selective criteria that does reduce the overall risk to some extent.

For example, aside from the criteria I mentioned earlier, he looks at things like daily trading liquidity, what sort of clients the company has, and the management team behind the company.

So it’s not as if he’s just randomly picking stocks. But at the same time, there’s a lot of risk involved, so you shouldn’t view this as a way to get rich quick.

What Do You Get as a Subscriber?

The core benefit of becoming a 100X Club subscriber is receiving Paul Mampilly’s trade recommendations, which you receive at least 12 of within a 12 month period. But there are other benefits, such as weekly updates and trade alerts.

Contents of the 100X Club membership

Here’s an overview of what you get access to as a subscriber:

  • 100X recommendations: Subscribers receive a fresh newsletter each month, for 12 months, which contains at least one new trade recommendation based on Paul’s 100X strategy.
  • Weekly updates: In addition to the monthly newsletter’s, you get a weekly podcast update that basically keeps you updated on what’s happening in the market.
  • Trade Alerts: These are pretty standard with every newsletter service I review, they alert you to when it’s time to buy or sell a given stock.
  • Model portfolio: The model portfolio is essentially a chart that is available inside the members area, that shows you which stocks Paul is currently investing in.

In addition to what I just mentioned, you also get a bonus report entitled “Microcap Fortunes: 3 Stocks Positioned to Become the Market’s Next 100-Baggers”. Which is where Paul reveals the three stocks he mentioned in the 100X Summit that he believes will go up in value.

But paying $10K to get access to these is a lot money, so is there a refund policy in place if it turns out to be BS?

Nope, there are no refunds.

But Paul does guarantee that he’ll provide you with 15 trade recommendations, that have the potential to make you 100X returns, within 12 months. So in other words, he’ll share 12 stocks picks with you.

But this is NOT a guarantee that you’ll make money, so if you spend $10K on a 100X Club membership and decide it’s not for you, it’s tough luck.

Is Paul Mampilly Legit?

Paul Mampilly is an American author and investor with an MBA in finance, and who worked as a hedge fund manager on Wall Street for over 20 years.

He started out as a portfolio manager for Banker’s Trust in the early 90’s (which later became the Deutsche Bank) and moved on to working for banks like the Royal Bank of Scotland and ING.

He’s won awards, made millions of dollars investing in tech startups and other companies, and has been featured on shows like CNBC, Fox Business News and others.

So he’s kind of a big deal.

And he knows what he’s doing when it comes to investing in the stock market. Especially when it comes to emerging trends and technology related stocks.

But does that mean he’s legit?

Well, just because someone has a lot of experience and has made lots of money investing in stocks, doesn’t mean their newsletter service is worth paying $10,000 for.

But based on what I’ve seen, after reviewing many of his newsletter services, I do think he’s legit and shares a lot of value with his followers. Both with his free subscriptions like Bold Profits Daily and his paid subscriptions like the ones I mentioned earlier, and others like Rapid Profit Trader.

You can learn more about Paul Mampilly and his programs here.

With that being said, I do have some concerns about 100X Club, which I’ll go into more detail on now.

Is 100X Club a Scam?

I personally do not believe 100X Club is a scam, because Paul Mampilly is a legitimate investment guru who shares his trade recommendations with subscribers.

However, I do think there’s a significant amount of risk involved here. So you should not go into this expecting to get rich quickly.

Because not only is there a huge amount of risk in paying someone $10K to access their trade recommendations, but the method itself is risky. Because he’s recommending small cap stocks that are inherently risky at the best of times.

The good thing is Paul doesn’t pretend like this is going to be risk free, he does mention throughout the sales video that there are no guarantees.

With that being said, I do think he hypes things up a bit. After all, he stands to make a lot of money from those who buy this, which means it’s in his best interests to make it sound amazing.

So, while I don’t consider it a scam, I do think it’s wise to consider this, and to take some of the hype with a pinch of salt.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, only you can decide if this is worth joining.

Personally, I think 100X Club could be worthwhile for someone who has benefited from some of Paul’s other, lower cost subscriptions, first. L Profits Unlimited for example, which costs less than $50.

Not to mention, this would be a lot better suited to someone who can comfortably afford to lose $15K or so. Because you should only ever invest what you can afford to lose.

On the other hand, I don’t think this is right for those who would suffer financial hardship if Paul’s recommendations didn’t pan out. Because there’s no guarantee of success with this.

Either way, it’s important to educate yourself and never just invest as a result of one person’s advice. Your aim should always be to understand what you’re doing, and what companies you’re investing in.
