Today I’m looking into a presentation from investment guru J.R. Butts about “Starlink’s Secret Partner.” In the presentation, J.R. Butts claims there have been “strange lights” spotted in the sky across America that are about to trigger a “$2.5 trillion tech disruption.”
And according to J.R. Butts, it could “make early investors extremely rich.”
What’s he talking about? What stock is he teasing? And is this a legit opportunity?
In summary, J.R. Butts is talking about a company that makes terminals for SpaceX’s Starlink project, which is all about providing high-speed, low-latency global satellite internet.
And he details the company he’s bullish on (and why) in a research report you can access by joining his stock advisory service, Top Stock Advisor, for $39.
I’m pretty sure I’ve figured out what stock he’s teasing, though. And in this post, I’ll show you what I found. I’ll also share my take on Top Stock Advisor to help you decide if it’s worthwhile.
Make an 886% Profit From “Starlink’s Secret Partner?”
The presentation begins with J.R. Butts talking about a mysterious “train of lights” appearing in the night sky across America, which he says aren’t UFOs, stars, or drones.
Instead, he says they’re satellites that have been launched into orbit “as part of Elon Musk’s shocking $10 billion project to blanket Earth with internet from space.” At first, J.R. Butts refers to this project as “Space-Net” but later reveals the official name for the project is Starlink.
What is Starlink? According to the Starlink website: “Starlink provides high-speed, low-latency broadband internet across the globe.”
The idea is essentially to provide the world with fast, reliable internet, no matter where you are. And it’s particularly suited to people who are located in remote areas that either don’t have access to the internet or do, but it’s slow and costs too much.
According to the company site, Starlink users “can expect to see download speeds between 100 Mb/s and 200 Mb/s,” which is as good, or better, than what people in the city get.
And it’s a simple, relatively affordable setup. All you need to do is order a “Starlink Kit,” which contains the base terminal and a subscription. And according to CNBC, the kit costs $499, and the subscription costs $99 per month for U.S. customers who are within the service area.
From an investment perspective, J.R. Butts says that “Space-Net” (AKA Starlink) could “completely disrupt the $2.5 trillion telecom cartel” and “make early investors extremely rich.”
Elon’s new project could completely disrupt the $2.5 trillion telecom cartel ruled by the likes of some of the most despised companies in America including Comcast and CenturyLink…
And in the process, make early investors extremely rich. I’m talking about gains of up to 886% (or more!).Source: https://www2.streetauthority.com/plp-sats-starlink-ex
It’s not hard to see why a revolutionary satellite-based internet has the potential to be an excellent investment in the years ahead. Especially considering Elon Musk is behind it. And especially considering the cost could come down as more users join the service.
However, Starlink is a private company.
What’s more, the company that operates Starlink, SpaceX, is also a private company. So it’s not possible to invest in either company at this stage.
Elon Musk has said on Twitter (see below) that he plans on IPO’ing Starlink in the years ahead. So there are likely many people waiting on the Initial Public Offering (IPO), which is when a private company offers new shares to the public as part of getting listed on the stock exchange.
However, according to J.R. Butts, he has “uncovered a secret backdoor investment” that lets you “get in on the ground floor” of “Space-Net” (Starlink) now. He likens the opportunity to how early investors of companies like AOL got wealthy and said this could “nearly 10x your money.”
What is this “secret backdoor investment” about?
Long story short, there are two main parts to making Starlink’s internet system work. The first part is the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites that SpaceX launches into space, and the second part is the base terminals you receive when you order the Starlink Kit.
And J.R. Butts says that the company he’s interested in makes a critical technology that goes into Starlink’s terminals that allows them to receive the signal from a Starlink satellite.
Without Starlink’s “secret partner”…
Not a SINGLE one of these satellites would work.
That’s because it’s THIS company’s technology that makes it possible for you to receive a connection from them back on Earth.
This reminded me of a similar presentation from Lou Basenese about “The Secret $15 Company Behind Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos’ Race to Own the Internet.”
Lou’s presentation was so similar to J.R.’s that I wondered if they were bullish on the same company. However, the clues J.R. Butts’ provides in this presentation suggest he’s bullish on a different company. And in the next section, I’ll share my guess with you.
J.R. Butts’ “Starlink’s Secret Partner” Stock Revealed
J.R. Butts’ doesn’t reveal the company he’s bullish on in the presentation. Instead, he details it in a research report titled: How to Profit up to 886% From “Starlink’s Secret Partner.”
However, I believe the company he’s teasing is STMicroelectronics (STM).
To explain why let’s start by summarizing the clues he provides in the presentation, then I’ll walk you through why I believe this company lines up with J.R. Butts’ hints.
Here are the main clues he provides in the presentation:
“You DON’T have to be rich to take advantage of it. (In fact, you can buy shares in this backdoor investment for around $40 — less than it costs a family of four to eat out at Chili’s.)”
“But in a rare move, he and SpaceX have partnered with an external company to make these terminals…”
“Why did SpaceX decide to partner with this company, instead of making the terminals themselves?”
“According to my research, it’s likely because of the level of sophistication required to make the terminal’s key component — the phased array antenna.”
“But this company has been in business for over 33 years and are leaders in developing advanced electronics.”
“According to the report, SpaceX has already signed an agreement with this company for the production of one million terminals.”
“At a price of $2,400 per terminal, that’s an extra $9.6 billion for this company — which is nearly how much they made in 2020…”
Now here’s why I believe STMicroelectronics is a match:
- STMicroelectronics is a Switzerland-based company that manufactures electronics and semiconductors. According to the company website, the chips they build are integrated into the “millions and billions of electronic devices people across the globe interact with every day.”
- According to a Business Insider article, SpaceX hired STMicroelectronics to manufacture one million Starlink user terminals at a price of roughly $2,400 each, or $2.4 billion total. The article also states that the “key component of each user terminal is a phased-array antenna” and that STMicroelectronics makes “phased-array components.”
- STMicroelectronics went public in 1994 however, according to Wikipedia, it was founded in 1987 as a result of a merger between two government-owned semiconductor companies.
- According to the company’s financials on Yahoo Finance (see earlier link), STMicroelectronics made $10.2 billion in 2020 which fits with J.R. Butts’ clue about the company’s revenue.
- As of writing (November 17, 2021), STMicroelectronics is trading at $51.45 and J.R. Butts said you could “buy shares in this backdoor investment for around $40.” So that part doesn’t fully lineup. However, throughout 2021 the price has traded at around $40 multiple times, so I’m guessing the presentation was released at a time when the stock was trading at around $40.
So, to sum it up, I believe STMicroelectronics is the company J.R. Butts is teasing in the presentation because it matches up with virtually all of the clues he provided.
I’ll leave it up for you to decide if you think my guess is correct and whether or not you believe STMicroelectronics is a good investment or not.
However, I did find some research about the company on Zacks. And as mentioned, J.R. Butts has created a report titled How to Profit up to 886% From “Starlink’s Secret Partner,” which shows you what company he’s teasing and why.
And the only way to access the report is to sign up for a subscription to Top Stock Advisor. So before I wrap this post up, let’s talk about the service and the person behind it, J.R. Butts.

What Is J.R. Butts’ Top Stock Advisor?
Top Stock Advisor is an investment advisory run by J.R. Butts (AKA Jimmy Butts) who’s the Chief Investment Strategist at StreetAuthority, a financial publishing company that started in 2001.
According to the website, J.R. Butts worked as a financial advisor for some of the largest fund managers in America for nearly a decade, but he quit because these firms charge clients hefty fees and he lost interest in making rich people even richer.
So, from what I can gather, he got into the world of financial education after leaving financial planning, and now he runs Top Stock Advisor.
According to J.R. Butts, Top Stock Advisor is designed to help subscribers invest in the “biggest winners” before they “skyrocket,” and the recommendations aren’t limited to any one sector.
J.R. Butts says he researches all market sectors to bring his readers “the cream of the crop,” which he describes as stocks with the potential to “fund your retirement with a single investment.”
How does the service work?
At the core of the service is the monthly investment newsletter. Each month, J.R. Butts sends subscribers a new newsletter issue, which contains his latest recommendation.
And between each newsletter, the site says he sends out “flash alerts” that update when J.R. Butts believes subscribers should take profits or invest in a new opportunity.
You also get access to the member’s area, which contains past issues of the service, and access to the model portfolio so you can see the active recommendations and some special reports.
Also, if you join through the presentation, J.R. Butts says he’s currently offering four bonus reports. The first report details the company we’ve discussed in this post (which I believe is STMicroelectronics), and the other three detail a different investment he’s interested in.

How much does it cost?
If you sign up through the presentation, Top Stock Advisor costs $39 per year. And based on what the site says, it comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.
J.R. Butts’ “Starlink’s Secret Partner” presentation is about a company that makes the terminals Starlink uses for its satellite internet project.
In the presentation, J.R. Butts doesn’t reveal the company, but based on the clues he provides; I believe the company he’s referring to is STMicroelectronics. Either way, to find out for sure, you’d need to join J.R. Butts advisory service, Top Stock Advisor, for $39.
I don’t think that’s a lot of money, considering you get 12 months of stock recommendations and a bunch of bonus reports, and it comes with a 90-day refund policy. And based on the presentation, J.R. Butts has recommended some great stocks over the years.
So it could be a worthwhile service.
However, there is no guarantee you’ll make “nearly 10x your money,” an “886% profit windfall,” or any money at all for that matter, by following J.R. Butts’ recommendations.
As J.R. Butts himself mentions in the presentation, all investments carry risk. So the reality is – anything could happen when you’re speculating in the market. And that’s why I wouldn’t rush into this expecting to make lots of money in a short period of time.
In any case, whatever you decide, I hope this post has helped shed some light on the presentation and if you’d like to share your thoughts, feel free to comment below.
