Note: I first wrote about this presentation in 2021, when Alex Green was teasing a “$3 stock” with “29,187 patents.” However, he released a new version of the presentation in January 2022, which is mostly the same, but he’s now calling it a “$4 stock.” So I’ve updated this post accordingly.
Alex Green’s “Single-Stock Retirement Play” presentation centers around a “single $4 stock” that he claims could be the “cornerstone of your retirement in the coming years.”
“And today I’m going to show you how a modest investment in a single $4 stock could become the cornerstone of your retirement in the coming years.
I call it the ‘Single-Stock Retirement Play.'”
According to Alex Green, this “hidden gem” is “trading under a secret name” and was started by the son of a police officer who “scrounged together $7,500 in seed money.” And today, he says the company is signing “multibillion-dollar deals” with tech giants.
“He started a business with just $7,500 and managed to find his way into the biggest tech companies in the world.
He’s built a moat around his business with thousands of valuable patents. And signed multibillion-dollar deals with the tech giants.”
What company is Alex Green teasing?
The only way to know for sure would be to see the report he put together called “The Single-Stock Retirement Play,” which comes with a $49 Oxford Communique subscription.
But I looked into Alex Green’s clues to find out what company he’s teasing, and in this post, I’ll show you what I found.
Before we get to that, though, I just want to point out that there are two different versions of this presentation floating around. They are both very similar and focused on the SAME company, but one talks about a “$3 stock” and the other, a “$4 stock.”
It appears as though both presentations are still being pitched, but the latter (“$4 stock”) version was released in January 2022, so that’s what I’ll be focussing on in this post.
Revealed: Alexander Green’s “Single-Stock Retirement Play” Pick
Alex Green’s Single-Stock Retirement Play presentation takes place in front of (what appears to be) a live audience. And he begins by saying that a “modest investment” in a “single $4 stock” could become the cornerstone of your retirement in the coming years.
Green says he’s not suggesting investors put all their money into one stock, but he claims that “one or two stocks can make your retirement,” which he says he’s done himself.
“Now, I’m not saying you should put all your money in one stock.
I invest in a wide range of stocks myself.
What I am saying is that just one or two stocks can make your retirement.
Apple, Netflix and Amazon have done that for me.”
Why does he think this company has so much potential?
I can’t speak for Alex Green, but in the presentation, he said that if you’re going to retire on one stock, it has to be the “Perfect Stock.” And he listed the following criteria, suggesting that this is what a perfect “dream stock” might look like:
Green also said that the “perfect stock” would “trade for just a few dollars a share” and suggested that the “$4 stock” he’s teasing meets all of these criteria.
“The Perfect Stock would also trade for just a few dollars a share.
That way you can get in cheap and ride it to potentially hundreds of dollars per share.
Now, it may seem improbable that such a stock actually exists.
But it does.
I only recently uncovered it.
And if you move quickly – before an upcoming announcement – this $4 stock could help you achieve the kind of carefree retirement most people only dream about.”
As a side note, Alex Green said a similar thing about his “#1 5G Megastock,” so if you want to learn about another so-called “perfect stock” he’s teased, see the article I just linked to.
Also, it might be worth taking the whole “upcoming announcement” thing with a pinch of salt. As mentioned, I first wrote about a different version of this presentation in 2021, and that version also mentioned an “announcement.”
Alex Green never specified what “announcement” he was referring to, but he might be referring to an earnings report or something. Either way, I suspect that this is mostly a marketing gimmick used to create a sense of urgency.
Anyway, to figure out what company Alex Green is teasing, let’s look at the clues he shared in the presentation. Then, I’ll show you what company matches those clues best.
For starters, he said that the company’s products “will be found in just about every cutting-edge industry around the globe” and said it has “inked deals” with a dozen well-known companies.
“First, its products will be found in just about every cutting-edge industry around the globe.”
“The company has inked deals with Cisco, Dell, Microsoft, Intel, Sharp, IBM, HP, Motorola, Sony, Nokia, Amazon and Apple…”
Second, Alex Green said that the company has “36,241 patents” (which is an update on the older version of the presentation, where he said the company had 29,187 patents).
“According to data from Intellectual Property Watchdog, the firm has quietly amassed one of the largest tech patent libraries of any company in the world.
It has 36,241 patents inside the United States and 108,749 globally.”
Third, he said that he expects the company to “hit at least $181 billion in annual sales this year” and that it “pays a big dividend.”
“And I expect the company to hit at least $181 billion in annual sales this year.
The company pays a big dividend too… 189% bigger than the S&P 500 average.”
Fourth, he said that the company “trades under a secret name.”
“You won’t find it on the New York Stock Exchange, the AMEX or the Nasdaq.
The company literally trades under a secret name.”
And finally, Green said that Fidelity, iShares, and Vanguard have invested in the company.
“Fidelity now has $564 million worth of shares.
iShares is backing up the truck with $900 million invested.
And Vanguard has taken the lead position with just over $1.25 billion invested.”
Aside from that, Alex Green talked about how the company was founded by the “blue-collar son of a career police officer” who started the company with $7,500 in seed money. And he dropped some other hints about deals it has made with other companies.
But the clues mentioned above are the main ones.
And based on what Alex Green said, I think his pick is Foxconn.
To explain why I say that, here’s how this company matches the above clues:
- First, Foxconn (which is a trading name for Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd.) is a Taiwanese multinational electronics contract manufacturer that was founded by Terry Gou in 1974 (who started with $7,500 of seed money). And according to the company’s Wikipedia page, its customers include the companies Green mentioned (except for IBM).
- Second, according to howmanypatents.com, Foxconn has 36,241 patents as of writing (July 2022).
- Third, Green said he expects the company to hit “$181 billion in annual sales this year,” and according to fortune.com, Hon Hai Precision Industry (AKA Foxconn) recorded $181 billion in revenue in 2020 (which is the year the original version of this presentation was released).
- Fourth, the part about the “secret” trading name matches because Foxconn is a trading name for Hon Hai Precision Industry (more on this shortly).
- And finally, all three firms he mentioned are investors in the company.
So, I believe Alex Green’s “Single-Stock Retirement Play” pick is Hon Hai (AKA Foxconn). And in the next section, I’ll do my best to explain the “secret” stock part of his teaser.
What “Secret Name” Is Alex Green Talking About? And What’s the Ticker?
During the presentation, Alex Green said that the company he’s teasing is trading under a “secret name” but that you can still buy it using a “regular brokerage account.”
“You can buy this $4 stock from a regular brokerage account… today. But only if you know its secret name. (Which I’m prepared to give you now.)”
What’s he talking about?
In short, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. is the real name of the company, and Foxconn is a trading name it uses, which appears to be the “secret” name Green is referring to.
As for the company’s ticker symbol, that’s where things can get a bit confusing because it trades under different names, on different exchanges, in multiple currencies, and there are different tickers for essentially the same company.
However, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (the company’s “real” name) trades under the ticker “2317” on the Taiwan Stock Exchange. And it’s listed on that exchange in the New Taiwan dollar (TWD), where it currently (July 2022) trades at just over 100 TWD.
And when you convert TWD into USD, that works out to around $3.30 a share at the time of writing, which matches the clue Alex Green shared about its stock price.
As a side note, when I first wrote about this presentation in 2021, I thought Alex Green’s pitch related to a different ticker (2354) because that’s what comes up when you Google “Foxconn stock,” and 2354 is the ticker for Foxconn Technology Co Ltd.
However, upon taking a closer look, it seems as though Alex Green is teasing Hon Hai stock (ticker: 2317) as, all things considered, this is what matches his clues best.
With all that said, as I mentioned in my original writeup, there are other ways you can trade Foxconn stock without having to use the Taiwan Stock Exchange.
For example, there’s something called an ADR (American Depositary Receipt) that trades on the OTC (Over The Counter) market in USD, and there is an ADR representing Hon Hai Precision Industry’s Taiwan shares that trades under the ticker HNHPF.
I haven’t read Green’s report, so I can’t be certain, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that were the ticker he’s recommending since you can access it from a “regular brokerage account.”
Worth noting, however, is that HNHPF trades for around $7 at the time of writing, more than double the USD equivalent of Hon Hai’s Taiwan listing (2317). But according to stockgumshoe.com, each share of this USD-denominated ADR is equal to two shares in Taiwan, which may help explain why it’s trading at a higher price.
As I said earlier, it’s a bit confusing.
But that’s the conclusion I’ve come to after looking into his clues.
And to be clear, this is all based on my own opinion and research. I haven’t read Alex Green’s “Single-Stock Retirement Play” report, where he details his pick. So as always, I recommend you do your own research as I can’t guarantee I’m right about any of this.
At the end of the day, the only way to know what company Alex Green is teasing (and what ticker he’s referring to) for sure would be to see the report he’s put together called “The Single-Stock Retirement Play: How to Retire on This Obscure $4 Stock.”
And the only way to access that report is to join his service, The Oxford Communique, which costs $49 or more per year. So let’s take a look at that now.

What Is The Oxford Communique?
The Oxford Communique is Alexander (Alex) Green’s flagship investment research service, which is published by a company called The Oxford Club.
And this is where he shares his latest picks and research with subscribers on the different companies he’s interested in. This is also the service you need to join if you want to access Alex Green’s “The Single-Stock Retirement Play” report.
How much does it cost?
As of writing, the service costs either $49, $99, or $129 for one year, depending on which membership option you select, and it auto-renews at $79 after 12 months.
So Alex Green’s presentation is more or less used to promote The Oxford Communique since learning about his stock is a big incentive to join, which is similar to other presentations he’s released that I’ve looked into.
How does The Oxford Communique work?
I’m not a member of The Oxford Communique, but the gist is that, as a subscriber of the service, you get access to monthly insights and investment ideas from Alex Green and numerous other resources, like research reports, a model portfolio, and member site.
Who Is Alex Green?
Alex Green is the Chief Investment Strategist of The Oxford Club, a well-known financial publishing company that sells a range of investment research services.
According to the presentation, prior to joining The Oxford Club in 2001, Alex Green’s clients “paid millions of dollars” to receive his advice while he worked on Wall Street.
And according to his Oxford Club bio, he has published multiple finance-related books, including The Gone Fishin’ Portfolio and The Secret of Shelter Island.
All told, Alex Green has over two decades of experience and, according to numerous presentations I’ve looked into, he has picked some decent stocks in that time.
I’ve uncovered a bunch of his picks by looking into different teasers he’s released, too. And I recently published a breakdown of Alex Green’s latest picks, which you may find helpful if you want to get a better idea of the types of companies he recommends.
Alex Green’s “Single-Stock Retirement Play” appears to be Foxconn, which is the trading name for a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer called Hon Hai Precision Industry.
As mentioned, Alex Green has teased this company as both a $3 and $4 stock in different presentations. But for the most part, both presentations are the same, they are both teasing the same company, and both are used to promote The Oxford Communique.
As for whether or not you should join that service, I think that depends on what you’re looking for. But it is a legitimate, long-running service and seems to have a good track record, from what I can tell.
That doesn’t mean you’ll make money following Green’s picks, though. Regardless of how good Alex Green is, nobody has a crystal ball. So there is no guarantee that any company he recommends will help “fund your dream retirement.”
Still, the service appears to be legitimate. And if you think my guess about his pick is right, at least now you don’t have to join the service just to find out what it is.
Anyway, that’s it from me. Thanks for reading! And if you’d like to share your thoughts on any of this, feel free to drop a comment below.
