Note: This post has been updated. When Alex Green first released this presentation, he referred to the company as a “$6 microcap stock.” But he is now calling it a “sub-$10 microcap,” so I have updated this post accordingly. Nothing else about the teaser appears to have changed.
The Oxford Club recently released a presentation featuring Alexander Green and George Rayburn called the Micro Stocks Mega-Profits Summit.
In it, Alex Green talked about how he believes microcap stocks can “produce oversized wins” and “fast growth for folks nearing retirement.”
He also shared some clues about his “top microcap opportunity for 2022,” a
“$6 microcap stock” “sub-$10 microcap” he believes is “the best chance you’ll get at a 10X gain this year.”
As expected, he didn’t share the company’s name in the presentation. Instead, he details it in a report called “1,000% Profits With This Sub-$10 Microcap,” which comes with a subscription to Oxford Microcap Trader.
However, I did some digging and believe I know what stock he’s teasing. So, in this post, I’ll walk you through the clues Alex Green shares in the presentation and show you what his top microcap pick is. But first, let’s look at why he’s bullish on microcaps in the first place.
Why Is Alexander Green Bullish on Microcaps? (Unpacking the “Micro Stocks Mega-Profits Summit”)
The presentation where Alex Green discusses his top microcap stock pick is called the Micro Stocks Mega-Profits Summit, and it’s located on The Oxford Club website.
After a quick introduction by host George Rayburn, Alex Green began the “summit” by stating that the best-performing stocks are microcaps.
“You see, year after year, the best-performing stocks in the market do NOT come from the S&P 500 or the Dow.
Sure, each year you can find a few stocks in the S&P that rise by 100% or so.
But the really big winners… I’m talking 1,000% or more… come from a different part of the market…
As Alex Green explains, microcap stocks are small publicly traded companies with a market capitalization of $50 million and $300 million.
In other words, they’re tiny stocks. And Alex Green says these small stocks have outperformed larger stocks by six times based on 85 years worth of data.
“According to Ariel Research, $1,000 invested in large caps – where most people focus – back in 1926 would’ve generated $3.1 million by 2011! That’s not bad.
However, microcaps would’ve generated a whopping $17 million!
That means microcaps outperformed large caps nearly six times over.”
So, from what I can gather, Alex Green is bullish on microcaps because they can produce “oversized wins.” However, he also suggested that he’s passionate about microcaps because they can produce “fast growth for folks nearing retirement.”
Either way, one of the primary reasons Alex Green cites as to why microcaps have so much upside potential is that Wall Street avoids these stocks.
In short, Alex Green points out that microcaps are too small for Wall Street to trade because if major investment firms took a position, they could “artificially” move the stock price.
As a result, he says the media rarely covers microcaps and that this, combined with the lack of Wall Street participation, can present an opportunity for everyday investors.
With that said, Alex Green emphasizes that he doesn’t believe in trading penny stocks (stocks that trade for less than $5 per share) because these “are a fantasy.”
What’s the difference between penny stocks and microcaps?
These terms are often used interchangeably, but the main difference is that any stock with a market cap of between $50 million to $300 million can be deemed a microcap stock. Whereas a penny stock is one where the share price is lower than $5.
So, a penny stock isn’t necessarily a smaller company; it’s just defined as a penny stock because of the share price. And, in reality, that doesn’t tell you a great deal.
However, Alex Green points out that the main difference (in his view) is that penny stocks are “pure speculation” whereas microcaps are “real companies.” And his explanation of the difference gives us insight into the types of microcaps he targets.
“In a nutshell, penny stocks are a fantasy.
They are companies with little, if any, revenue. Sometimes, they don’t have a viable product. They are often run by inept or unethical managers.
In short, they are pure speculation.
Microcaps, on the other hand, are real companies.
They have real breakthrough products that customers want. Revenue and profits are climbing.
They have smart business owners working to drive growth.”
What microcap stock is Alex Green interested in?
Alex Green mentions one company by name, Telos Corporation (TLS), an IT and cybersecurity company that he states is a “nice opportunity.”
But that’s NOT his top microcap pick.
Alex Green says his “1,000% microcap pick for 2022” is a “sub-$10” stock.
And he reveals it in a research report called “1,000% Profits With This Sub-$10 Microcap,” which comes with a $1,975 subscription to Oxford Microcap Trader.
However, I didn’t want to spend almost $2k to find out what stock he’s teasing, so I looked into the clues he shared in the presentation, and I think I’ve solved the puzzle.
What Is Alex Green’s Microcap Stock Pick?
I believe Alex Green’s “sub-$10 microcap” stock is AdTheorent (ADTH) because it matches the clues he shared in the microcap stock presentation.
To explain why, let’s look at Alex Green’s clues about the company:
“It’s in the futuristic machine learning industry, which is projected to grow 881% by 2028.
It’s won “Most Innovative Product” at the BIG Innovation Awards for four years running.
Its second quarter revenue is up 89% year over year…
And it’s incredibly cheap, with a share price in the single digits.
At the time of this recording, it’s less than Sub-$10 a share!”
The clue that led me to AdTheorent was the one about how the company won the “Most Innovative Product” four years running. At first, this didn’t get me very far. But I eventually found an article that led me right to it.
According to a January 2021 Markets Insider article:
“AdTheorent was awarded ‘Best AI-Based Advertising Solution’ (AI Breakthrough Awards) and ‘Most Innovative Product’ (B.I.G. Innovation Awards) for three consecutive years.”Source: https://markets.businessinsider.com
I also found that AdTheorent won a 2022 Big Innovation Award. So, the company has won the award four years in a row, which is a match with Alex Green’s clue.
Regarding Alex Green’s second clue… according to a press release, AdTheorent increased its revenue by 89% in the second quarter of 2021 versus Q2 the year prior.
And the share price WAS trading at around $6 when the presentation was released in February 2022. However, it went up after the presentation was released, which is likely what prompted Alex Green to start calling it a “sub-$10” stock. And as of writing this update (July 2022), the company is trading lower again, like most tech stocks.
In any case, last but not least, Alex Green says that his recommended microcap company is in the “futuristic machine learning industry,” which is also a match.
What does AdTheorent do?
AdTheorent is a digital media company that uses machine learning technology to help advertisers leverage “performance-first, privacy-forward” advertising campaigns.
I found this company of particular interest because I earn a living through online marketing. And also because I think the average investor could easily overlook this company since most aren’t aware of how advertising works under the hood (so to speak).
So, what does it do? In short, the company uses machine learning instead of traditional cookie-based methods of serving up targeted ads. The company claims its system can boost the effectiveness of advertising for customers while also being more privacy-focused for the recipients of the ads since it leverages non-personalized data points.
As part of my research, I found the following YouTube video where the CEO discussed how the company’s machine learning advertising solution works. I recommend giving it a watch because the CEO does a great job of breaking down how the tech works.
I want to stress that my sharing of the above video is purely for information purposes. I am NOT affiliated with AdTheorent, nor am I a shareholder of the company. I just think what the company does is interesting, and it seems to match Alex Green’s clues.
The only caveat is that it’s technically not a microcap at the time of writing. I’m not sure what the market cap was when Alex Green released the presentation in February 2022. But right now, it’s sitting at just over $600 million, which (technically) makes it a small-cap stock.
However, it was closer to microcap status in February. And given how closely the company matches Alex Green’s clues overall, I’m willing to bet that this is his pick.
What else does he say about his pick?
According to Alex Green, there are three specific things he looks for when choosing a microcap stock related to the company’s revenue, innovation, and share price. And he says his “top microcap opportunity for 2022” passes his “three-metric checklist with flying colors.”
He also talks about how “insider buying” is one of the most important factors he looks at when selecting a microcap stock. And he states that the company’s CEO “just poured $17 million of his own money into the business.”
And that is the only clue I was unable to verify. There doesn’t appear to be anything online about AdTheorent’s CEO buying $17 million worth of shares.
In any case, Alex Green shares multiple microcap picks with subscribers of Oxford Microcap Trader, so let’s look into how he goes about finding these stocks in more detail.

How Does Alex Green Find Microcap Stocks?
During the presentation, Alex Green pointed out that there’s more risk with the newer, smaller companies, given how volatile these can be. However, he also said that the “right microcaps have the power to 10X your money in just one year.”
But what exactly are the “right microcaps,” and how does he find them?
According to Alex Green, there are three “non-negotiables” he looks for when selecting a microcap stock, and a fourth thing he looks at is insider buying.
Here’s an overview of his three-metric checklist:
- Explosive revenue growth: Alex Green says that the first thing he looks for in a microcap is “explosive revenue growth.” And he states that at least three straight quarters of growth is best.
- Disruptive innovation: Next, Alex Green says he looks for microcaps that are helping to create new industries because this is where “the best profit opportunities lie.”
- Cheap share price: The third “non-negotiable” aspect is the company’s share price. According to Alex Green, whenever possible, he prefers stocks trading “in the single digits.”
Alex Green also claims that he has “identified a specific signal” that helps him “predict when a microcap is about to take off.” And that signal is insider buying.
“The most important signal that a microcap is about to rise…
Is insider buying.”
What is insider buying?
First and foremost, Alex Green isn’t talking about anything shady. Instead, he’s talking about when company executives have to file a Form 4 with the SEC because they’ve decided to buy shares of their own company. Done correctly and ethically, this is perfectly acceptable.
It didn’t surprise me that this was a part of his strategy, either. Because I recently reviewed Alex Green’s Insider Alert service, which is dedicated to finding stocks based on “corporate insider” buying activity.
In any case, Alex Green states that when you apply his “three non-negotiable criteria” to a microcap stock, insider buying is a great indicator that a microcap is about to take off.
How do you get Alex Green’s microcap picks?
We already know what one of them is (Telos), which he gave away for free during the presentation. And I’m pretty sure his top microcap pick is AdTheorent, based on what we discussed earlier. However, the only way to access all of Alex Green’s latest microcap picks is to join Oxford Microcap Trader. So, let’s take a look at how this service works.
What Is Oxford Microcap Trader?
Oxford Microcap Trader is an investment advisory service edited by Alexander Green of The Oxford Club. And it’s focused exclusively on microcap stocks.
According to the Oxford Club website, this is where Alex Green “gives actionable microcap recommendations when he finds particularly impressive 10X opportunities.”
As soon as Alex Gren finds a stock that matches his criteria, he shares it with subscribers of Oxford Microcap Trader. And the website says he typically shares one-to-two microcap recommendations each month in the form of a “buy alert.”
This alert gives you the details about the company, its stock, and the recommended buy price. You also get a “sell alert” when he suggests exiting the position.
On top of this, you get access to the current model portfolio to see Alex Green’s existing stock picks and two bonus research reports.
One report is called “1,000% Profits With This Sub-$10 Microcap,” and the other is “Go Big by Going Small: 5 Tiny Stocks That Will Supercharge Your Wealth.”
Another thing worth mentioning is that Alex Green says he always tries to include an “options play” with every microcap recommendation he shares.
This is optional (no pun intended), but as Alex points out, it’s designed to make the potential gains “even bigger” than trading regular shares. But it can also add to the risk element, so it won’t be for everyone.
Either way, Alex Green has created a three-part video series to walk you through how to trade options, and this comes with an Oxford Microcap Trader subscription.
How much does it cost? A subscription to Oxford Microcap Trader is $1,975 if you join through the “Micro Stocks Mega-Profits Summit” presentation.
Is it legit? I haven’t joined Oxford Microcap Trader, but I am familiar with the Oxford Club and Alexander Green. The Oxford Club is a legitimate financial publishing company, and Alex Green is a genuine investment expert. So, I don’t believe the service is a scam.
However, there is no guarantee the service will help you make money. And there’s a significant amount of risk involved with speculating on microcap stocks, especially if you decide to throw options trading in the mix (lol). That’s right up there in terms of risk.
But that doesn’t make it a scam. It just means you shouldn’t bet more than you can afford to lose and that you should make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into.
I should also point out that there are no refunds with this service. So, if you do decide to join, it’s not possible to get your money back.
However, the website does say you’ll get the “chance at a minimum of nine triple-digit wins in the next 12 months,” or The Oxford Club will give you a second year’s service for free.
Is Alexander Green the Real Deal?
Alexander (Alex) Green is the Chief Investment Strategist of The Oxford Club, and this is the third time I’ve written about one of his stock picks.
Before this, I wrote about a “$5 Private Aviation Superstock” he teased. And before that, I wrote about his “stock with 29,187 patents,” which he refers to as the “single-stock retirement play.” I reveal both stocks in the above articles, but one is an aviation stock, and the other is an electronics manufacturer based in Taiwan.
Where can you access his research?
Alex Green’s flagship stock advisory is The Oxford Communique, but he runs numerous other services for The Oxford Club, including The Momentum Alert, The Insider Alert, and Oxford Microcap Trader, the service we discussed a moment ago.
Before getting into the stock-picking game, The Oxford Club website says Alex Green was a portfolio manager, Wall Street investment advisory, and research analyst. And according to Alex Gren, he’s been “tracking up-and-coming companies for nearly 40 years.”
Is he the real deal? I don’t know Alex Green personally, but he is a real investment expert based on my research. And, perhaps it’s just my perception, but he doesn’t seem to overhype things as much as most other “gurus” I come across.
He also seems to pick some great stocks. Of course, not every stock he recommends is a winner, but his services seem to have a strong track record overall.
Alexander Green’s “sub-$10 microcap,” which he also refers to as his “top microcap opportunity for 2022,” appears to be AdTheorent (ADTH). I say this because it closely matches the clues he shared in the presentation.
As mentioned, this stock is technically just above the microcap threshold in terms of market cap. However, given how close the other clues match, I don’t think that rules it out, especially since the market cap has increased lately.
In any case, Alex Green details his pick in the “1,000% Profits With This Sub-$10 Microcap” report, which comes with an Oxford Microcap Trader subscription. So, if you want to find out for sure, the best thing to do would be to join this service for $1,975.
I can’t say for sure how worthwhile the service is since I’m not a member, but I don’t believe it’s a scam, and it could be worthwhile if you’re interested in microcaps.
The only thing I will say is that there’s no guarantee you’ll make 1,000% gains, or any money at all, following Alex Green’s stock picks. So, I wouldn’t sign up expecting to get rich overnight because that could lead to disappointment.
Anyway, that’s a wrap from me. What do you think? Is my guess on the money, or is it something else? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
