Hello and welcome to my review of the Early Warning Summit 2022.
I came across this presentation earlier today on the InvestorPlace website, and after looking into some of the claims in the video, I thought I’d share what I learned in this post.
In short, the presentation features Luke Lango, Eric Fry, and Louis Navellier, who talk about a “unique approach to investing” they claim has already given some of their readers a chance to 9X the Dow in 12 months. And they’ve put together the “Power Portfolio” service, which contains their “eight best hypergrowth stocks for 2022.”
The Early Warning Summit 2022 isn’t a scam, and given the trio’s track record, it could be a great opportunity. However, there’s no guarantee you’ll get rich by following their picks, and it does cost $1,999 to join, which is non-refundable, so it may not suit everyone.
Read on for my complete take.
Early Warning Summit 2022 (Beat the Dow by 4X in 12 Months?)
The Early Warning Summit 2022 kicks off with host Lauren Sivan introducing investment experts Louis Navellier, Luke Lango, and Eric Fry. All of which I’ve written about on this site.
Louis Navellier is a professional money manager with decades of experience and is best known for his work with Breakthrough Stocks, a service published by InvestorPlace. He has a solid track record in the advisory space, too. I’ve written about several of his latest stock picks, including his top stock pick for 2022, in this article.
Luke Lango is one of InvestorPlace’s foremost tech-investing experts and is probably best known for his Innovation Investor service. I recently wrote about his latest presentation, where he talked about a “forever battery” stock that he believes could 10X (or more) in the years ahead.
Eric Fry is the third investment guru in the presentation. He is the editor of one of InvestorPlace’s most popular, long-running advisories called Fry’s Investment Report. Eric is a former hedge fund manager with over two decades of experience. Like Louis and Luke, he has developed a strong track record over the years, mainly related to technology investments.
All in all, Lauren Sivan states that these three investors have over 70 years of combined experience and that they’re going to share their top stock picks for 2022 in the presentation.
What’s the presentation all about?
The Early Warning Summit 2022 is a panel discussion between Luke, Louis, and Eric that centers around what has taken place in the world of investing in 2021 and their outlook on 2022.
The three discuss topics like inflation, government debt, and the pandemic and how these have already impacted markets, and their theory on how to best position yourself moving forward.
For example, Luke talks about how, while inflation is “red-hot” right now, he believes it’s being overblown by the media due to technological deflation. Here’s how he puts it:
Technology has drastically boosted productivity while simultaneously lowering the cost to produce goods and services.Source: https://details.investorplace.com/aelvsir698xwyqo3
That’s hard to argue with. Technology has, and will likely continue, lowering costs in the long term. However, there’s no telling what could happen in the short-to-medium term.
In any case, Luke Lango believes tech stocks will be the winners in 2022:
So, as new technologies like AI, 5G, and the blockchain upgrade the global economy, inflation will be tamed, and innovative tech stocks will win big.
On the other hand, Eric says he’s “not quite as hopeful” about decreasing inflation and thinks it’s wise to consider positioning yourself just in case it sticks around longer than expected.
He also says that “now more than ever, investors should be hyper-focused on individual companies instead of the broad markets.” And in particular, Eric says investors should be focused on megatrends because these “don’t necessarily follow the day-to-day price actions of the markets,” which is similar to what he talked about in the Wealth Acceleration Summit.
What about Louis Navellier?
Louis is a numbers guy, and he suggests that the market correction that most Americans are expecting (given super-high valuations) may have already happened. And he’s bullish on 2022 given things like strong company earnings and consumer balance sheets.
To sum it up… all three believe 2022 could be a great year for stocks if you know where to look, and they each mention one specific stock they’re bullish on.
What Stocks Do Luke, Eric, and Louis Recommend?
After sharing their take on the 2021 market and discussing their general market outlook for 2022, Luke, Eric, and Louis each recommend one stock in the presentation.
And for the most part, these three companies revolve around the electric vehicle trend.
- Luke Lango’s pick is a company called ChargePoint (CHPT), which builds charging infastructure for electric vehicles.
- Eric Fry is bullish on a company called Standard Lithium (SLI), which he says is “leveraging proprietary technology to produce lithium and is completely changing the industry.”
- And Louis Navellier mentions Aehr Test Systems (AEHR), a company that specializes in making testing equipment for the semiconductor industry.
In one way or another, all of these companies are relevant to the EV trend, but they each take a different approach. For example, one company helps charge EVs, another produces lithium used in EVs, and the third is in the semiconductor industry, which is also highly relevant to EVs.
These aren’t the only stocks the trio are bullish on, though.
According to the presentation, there’s one stock all three experts are bullish on Radware (RDWR), a cybersecurity company focused on protecting and storing sensitive information.
Aside from these, there are eight stocks Eric, Louis, and Luke are excited about for 2022. And the only way to access the names of those companies is to join the Power Portfolio service.
What Is the Power Portfolio?
In the Early Warning Summit 2022 presentation, Eric Fry describes the “Power Portfolio” as a collective effort where he, Luke, and Louis worked together to find eight stocks they believe will “dazzle investors in 2022.”
According to Eric Fry, these could be “some of the best positioned stocks for 2022.”
The presentation also states that these eight stock picks aren’t shared in any other service the three gurus provide; they’re exclusive to the Power Portfolio service.
What do you get if you join?
The main benefit of joining the service is accessing the Power Portfolio model portfolio. This contains Luke Lango, Louis Navellier, and Eric Fry’s active stock picks, and according to the presentation, it “may” be updated throughout the year if new opportunities arise.
This model portfolio includes the eight stocks the three are bullish on, and you get all the research behind each company in a report titled “8 Hypergrowth Stocks for 2022.”
And subscribers receive a second bonus report titled “The Top 3 Cryptos for Huge Gains in 2022,” which centers around cryptocurrency investment ideas.
How much does it cost?
The cost of joining the Power Portfolio service is $1999 for 12 months. That is more expensive than the average InvestorPlace service, but the service comes with a performance “promise” of sorts. Basically, you get a second year for free if it doesn’t perform.
Here’s how Luke Lango puts it in the presentation:
If by the end of 2021 this model portfolio doesn’t beat the Dow by four times, you’ll get another year of this research service at no additional cost, and we’ll personally craft a brand-new portfolio of our new favorite stocks.
Is Early Warning Summit 2022 a Scam?
I don’t believe Early Warning Summit 2022 is a scam; it’s essentially just a presentation where three respected investors talk about what opportunities they see in the year ahead.
And while the Power Portfolio service is expensive, it could be worth checking out if you want to see what stocks Louis Navellier, Luke Lango, and Eric Fry are bullish on that they don’t share anywhere else.
That said, I think it’s important to know that there’s no guarantee you’ll make money as a subscriber of the service, let alone 4X the market in the next 12 months.
That’s the goal based on what is stated in the presentation, but nobody has a crystal ball, so it’s still possible you could lose some (or all) of your investment.
In my opinion, that doesn’t make this service, or any service, a scam. It just means you shouldn’t assume you’ll make lots of money because anything could happen.
Another thing worth mentioning is that, while the InvestorPlace website states that you can get a second year of access to the service for free if it doesn’t work out as they expect, it’s not possible to obtain a cash refund for the Power Portfolio service.
I can understand why that might put some people off, but there’s an argument to be made that some legitimate services do this to stop people joining just to find out the stock picks, then refunding shortly after. So a no-refund policy doesn’t necessarily make something a scam.
The Early Warning Summit is a yearly event where InvestorPlace’s top investment gurus get together to share their ideas for the year ahead.
This one was all about 2022 since we are almost at the end of 2021 as of writing, and it centered around the opportunities related to technology. In particular, the electric vehicle trend.
Louis, Eric, and Luke also discussed things like inflation and how many people seem to expect that we could see a market correction in the year ahead, and how the Power Portfolio is designed to help investors thrive regardless of what happens in the market.
Time will tell how worthwhile the Power Portfolio stock picks are, but all three gurus have a good reputation, so the service could be worth joining, especially if you’re interested in tech-related investment opportunities and want to take advantage of emerging technology trends.
Either way, I hope you found this post helpful, and feel free to share your thoughts about the presentation or Power Portfolio service in the comments below.
