I’ve come across ads for Keith Kohl’s “TriFuel-238” presentation a lot over the past few months, so today, I decided to take a closer look.
In short, Keith Kohl claims that “TriFuel-238” is “the most powerful form of fuel in the world,” “breathtakingly cheap,” and “completely emission free.”
What’s more, he states that this tech (which he says is made by a “tiny” Virginia-based tech company) could hand investors a “once-in-a-lifetime windfall” of up to 46,018%.
“A breakthrough piece of technology — set to claim the lion’s share of a gigantic $1.9 trillion opportunity…
And hand investors what could be a once-in-a-lifetime windfall of as much as 46,018% in the years to come.”
Those are pretty bold claims, to say the least.
Nevertheless, if you’re wondering what TriFuel-238 is, what company Keith Kohl is teasing, and whether or not the presentation’s legit, stick around.
In this post, I’ll show you everything I learned about Kohl’s prediction, including the name and ticker symbol of the company he’s teasing.
What Is TriFuel-238? (All You Need to Know)
According to Keith Kohl, TriFuel-238 is a “groundbreaking invention” that, for the first time in human history, has made “real renewable energy” available that’s “cheaper than a cup of coffee from a rest stop.” And he says it’s all thanks to a “contorted metal rod.”
“Because for the first time in human history, real renewable energy was now available — cheaper than a cup of coffee from a rest stop.
All thanks to an ugly, contorted metal rod…
Now poised to ignite an energy revolution around the world.”
To illustrate how powerful and cheap TriFuel-238 is, Keith Kohl compared it to coal in the presentation while also pointing out that it produces zero carbon emissions.
“‘TriFuel-238’ is so powerful and so cheap…
That the same $10 million spent on coal today… that powers roughly 103,179 homes…
Could power an almost unbelievable 4.36 MILLION homes nationwide!
That’s an astounding 422 times MORE power from the same amount spent on coal!
And ‘TriFuel-238’ could do it all, for an entire century, while producing ZERO carbon emissions.”
He also compared it to natural gas, oil, and other types of renewable energy, claiming that it’s the cheapest form of energy, and most powerful form of fuel, in the world.
What’s more, Kohl states that TriFuel-238 has nothing to do with solar, wind, hydrogen, or any other renewable energy tech being talked about right now.
“And it has nothing to do with wind, solar, or any renewables.
It’s not some ‘new oil,’ liquid gas, diamond battery, or hydrogen fuel cell…
Or practically any other technology you’re hearing about right now!
‘TriFuel-238’ is something radically different.”
So, what on earth is TriFuel-238 then?
According to Keith Kohl, he’s referring to “next generation” nuclear fuel.
“See, what I’ve described to you today can be summed up as…
The ‘next generation’ of nuclear fuel.”
That’s still somewhat vague, though.
So to find out exactly what fuel (and company) he was talking about, I dug deeper into what, according to Keith Kohl, makes this particular type of nuclear fuel unique.
For one thing, he said it runs cooler than “old” nuclear fuel, suggesting that this is what could make it “one of the safest forms of energy on the planet.”
“And most importantly — thanks to this breakthrough — it’s now one of the safest forms of energy on the planet.
As safe as solar, hydropower, or wind.
All thanks to the fact that ‘TriFuel-238’ runs an incredible 1,632 °F cooler than old nuclear fuel!”
Second, he said the company that makes it altered the fuel “on a molecular level,” boosting the “heat transfer coefficient” and increasing the energy output of a nuclear plant in the process. And this, according to Kohl, is what makes it so powerful.
“And in this case, when this tiny company boosted ‘h,’ the ‘heat transfer coefficient’…
Which is a complex way of saying how much energy is released from every inch of the fuel…
It sent Q — the energy output of a nuclear plant — through the roof!
This company’s radical shift from old nuclear fuel is its landmark energy breakthrough…
And it’s what crowns ‘TriFuel-238’ the most powerful form of fuel in the world.”
Lastly, Kohl said that what makes “all the difference in the world” is the shape of the “TriFuel-238” rod. And he showed an image of a nuclear fuel rod sliced in half, which appears to represent the fuel rod that the company he’s teasing makes.
“What you’re looking at is an image of a ‘TriFuel-238’ rod if you had sliced it in two.
As you can see, there are three unique layers — black, white-black, and gray…
And it’s this aspect of ‘TriFuel-238’ that literally makes all the difference in the world.”
Based on Keith Kohl’s clues, the type of nuclear fuel he’s referring to is high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel.
What’s that? I recommend seeing the energy.gov link I just shared because the topic of nuclear fuel is (WAY) beyond the scope of this blog. But my general understanding is that HALEU is a more efficient type of nuclear fuel used in advanced nuclear reactors.
And the exact nuclear fuel Keith Kohl is talking about when he says “TriFuel-238” appears to be Lightbridge Fuel™, an advanced nuclear fuel made by Lightbridge Corporation.
I say this because that’s the fuel (and company) that matches the clues Keith Kohl shared in the presentation. And in the next section, I’ll walk you through how I discovered this.
What Company Makes “TriFuel-238?” (Lightbridge)
Keith Kohl shared numerous clues about “TriFuel-238” in the presentation. However, the clue that led me to his pick, which I believe is Lightbridge Corporation (ticker: LTBR), was the picture he shared of the so-called “TriFuel-238” rod sliced in two.
A quick image search using Google revealed many results related to Lightbridge, and after sleuthing around the company website, I came across their February 2022 Investor Presentation, which confirms that the image Kohl shared is of Lightbridge’s fuel rod.
That presentation explains how “TriFuel-238” (AKA Lightbridge Fuel™) works, discusses the company’s patents (another thing Kohl teased in the presentation), and confirms some of the other clues he shared. So you may find that helpful if you want to know more.
What does the company do?
Lightbridge Corporation is a Virginia-based company that, according to the website, is “advancing state-of-the-art fuel technology.”
And from what I understand, its fuel rod is designed to be safer, more powerful, and reduce energy-generation costs, which lines up with what Kohl discussed in his pitch.
I also looked into the other clues he shared to see if they matched.
For instance, Keith Kohl talked about how aging coal plants can be “retrofitted” for “TriFuel-238.” And this lines up with what Lightbridge said in the investor presentation I shared earlier about how its fuel can potentially replace natural gas and coal plants at their existing locations.
The presentation also talked about “deals” the company behind “TriFuel-238” has with “four of America’s largest energy companies.”
“Along with its deals with four of America’s largest energy companies, which could spark a U.S.-wide ‘TriFuel-238’ rollout at any moment in 2022…”
It’s unclear exactly what “deals” Keith Kohl is referring to.
But according to the American Nuclear Society website, four major U.S. nuclear utilities “have representation on Lightbridge’s Nuclear Utility Fuel Advisory Board.”
Lastly, Keith Kohl referred to his pick as a “$6 stock.” And as of writing (May 2022), shares of Lightbridge Corporation (LTBR) are trading at just under $6.
That said, not everything he said was an exact match. For example, one clue I wasn’t able to verify was his claim about the company making “$1 million per year.”
“And for this tiny American operation making a respectable $1 million per year to date…”
I could be missing something, but everything I’ve seen (for example, Lightbridge’s income statement breakdown on Yahoo Finance) suggests that it hasn’t generated revenue for several years. So I don’t know where Keith Kohl got the revenue figure from.
In any case, Lightbridge appears to be Keith Kohl’s “TriFuel-238” pick.
How can you find out for sure?
The only way to find out for sure what company Keith Kohl’s teasing would be to see the research report he put together called “The Undiscovered Tech Company Behind the Coming ‘TriFuel-238’ Revolution.”
And the only way to get that is to join Energy Investor for $99.
What Is Energy Investor?
Energy Investor is an Angel Publishing stock advisory service run by Keith Kohl focused on energy-related investments.
According to Keith Kohl, this is where he shares his “most cutting-edge energy technology research.” And he says it caters to investors who want to learn about “innovative energy companies” that he believes “will be vital to meeting the world’s future energy demand.”
How does it work?
The basic idea is that, as a subscriber of Energy Investor, you get access to Keith Kohl’s latest investment ideas and research. And from there, you can choose whether or not you want to follow his ideas using your brokerage account.
The cost of an Energy Investor subscription is $99 (if you join through the presentation), and this gives you access to 12 monthly newsletters, each of which covers Keith Kohl’s latest energy-related investment research and recommendations.
Subscribers also receive updates, research reports, and access to a member’s website that contains a model portfolio, where you can see his latest picks.
Who Is Keith Kohl?
Keith Kohl runs several stock picking services for a financial publishing company called Angel Publishing. His flagship service is called Technology and Opportunity, but he also runs the service we just discussed, Energy Investor, and one called Topline Trader.
Keith Kohl’s Angel Publishing profile describes him as a “true insider in the technology and energy markets” and suggests that he’s helped many people with his research.
I don’t know how well his picks have played out over the years, but I have written about numerous stock teaser presentations he and his colleagues have released.
For example, I’ve uncovered some of Keith Kohl’s stock picks related to quantum computing, robotics, biotech, LiDAR, lithium, and more (all of which you can see here).
I also wrote about a similar nuclear fuel teaser that his colleague, Jason Williams, released (dubbed “Bill Gates’ Master Plan”), which focused on a different company in the space.
Is the TriFuel-238 Presentation Legit?
There’s no such thing as “TriFuel-238,” but the actual fuel Keith Kohl refers to in the presentation is real. It’s essentially “next-generation” nuclear fuel and is a potentially promising energy source made by a genuine company in the space.
And while I haven’t joined the service he’s selling, Energy Investor, it seems like a genuine service and comes with a refund policy based on what the site says.
So I don’t believe the “TriFuel-238” presentation is a “scam.”
That said, in my opinion, there was a fair amount of hype in the presentation, especially when it comes to claims about the share price “soaring.”
“What’s coming down the pike for this tiny company could whip up a stock-buying frenzy…
Sending its per-share price soaring to nosebleed levels of as much as 460x if the stock price moves as much as I expect it to.
I’m talking about enough upside to turn a $3,000 stake today into what could be a staggering $1,380,564 fortune in the coming years.
A ‘set for life’ level of wealth.”
Anything is possible in the stock market, but turning $3,000 into over a million dollars with one stock is not a very realistic expectation.
So I suggest taking the presentation with a pinch of salt because there’s no guarantee you’ll make money following Keith Kohl’s (or anyone’s) stock picks, let alone see 460x gains.
Keith Kohl’s “TriFuel-238” presentation is all about a new type of nuclear fuel that a Virginia-based company he’s teasing has developed, which appears to be Lightbridge.
Only time will tell if Kohl’s prediction plays out. However, there are some in-depth articles covering Lightbridge’s stock, like this one on Seeking Alpha. So if you want to research this company further to figure out if it’s a good investment, you might find that helpful.
And of course, assuming my guess is correct, you could also join Energy Investor and get Keith Kohl’s research on the company if you don’t mind shelling out $99.
Anyway, that’s my take. Feel free to share your thoughts on the TriFuel-238 presentation in the comments section below. Thanks for reading.
