What’s Oxford’s “#1 Microcap for 2021?” It’s teased as a “Tiny $4 Tech Stock With Technology That Will Replace Smartphones”

Checking out the new teaser pitch for Oxford Microcap Trader

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, September 22, 2021

This article was originally published on June 29, 2020, when Alexander Green was first touting this as the “#1 Microcap for 2020” — that ad has been repurposed and lightly updated as they pitch the same stock as the “#1 Microcap for 2021,” so we’re re-posting this here to answer reader questions. We have not updated the article below since June 29, 2020, except to update for the company’s name change earlier this year, the latest version of the ad that we’ve seen is still dated October, 2020, and the shares are currently 30% or so below where they were when this article was written.

The emails that I started getting a few days ago start out with a tease about a secret meeting…

“Right near the Pacific coast…

“Where you can smell the salt and volcanic dust in the air…

“There lies a secret compound… one visited by some of the brightest financial minds in the world.”

And, it turns out, that’s not really a “secret compound”, it’s just a nice hotel resort in Nicaragua called Ranch Santana. Looks like a beautiful place, and it’s where the Oxford Club has hosted some of their subscriber confabs in the past — so it should be no big surprise that the figurehead of the Oxford Club, Alexander Green, gave a presentation at a meeting there at some point (presumably before the COVID shutdown, given the travel restrictions we’re all under these days).

Or, as the tease puts it, “Alexander Green was one of the few people on the planet who secured an invite.”

I poke fun at this kind of silliness partly because it begs for it… but there’s a real reason, too: If we’re to take ourselves seriously as investors, we have to get rid of the mythology that there’s a secret cabal of “in the know” people who are having private meetings and accurately predicting the path of the stock market. Sure, there are investment conferences and gatherings all the time, and I often learn interesting things when I attend them, but the people who puff themselves up as all-knowing gurus are not more brilliant than you, and as a group they have no more certainty than you about which stocks will surge higher or fall over the next six months. They have to pretend they do, because that’s how you get subscribers, by puffing yourself up, but try to take these pitches and commentaries as just another piece of an education — not leadership by some infallible figurehead and an entree into a secret “club.”

And, frankly, only go to the conferences if you love traveling and meeting people and want to swim in that lovely-looking pool at Rancho Santana, or stroll that pretty Nicaraguan beach. Which you can do on your own, of course, you can get your own room in that “secret compound” for a little under $300 a night this summer.

But anyway I should get back to the point — the email launched into an “interview” with Alexander Green and a pitch for his Oxford Microcap Trader service, which will run you $1,975 a year (and, as is pretty typical with the “upsell” newsletters on which publishers probably make most of their profit, no possibility of a refund).

This is what they’re really selling, once the sales pitch for this Pacific enclave ends and the stock spiel gets underway…

“Alexander Green Reveals His… #1 Microcap for 2020

“Discover the Tiny $4 Tech Stock With Technology That Will Replace Smartphones”

So that’s interesting… what’s the story? More from the ad:

“You see, Alex and his team just spent a week at an invitation-only investment summit.

“It was held at a beautiful 2,700-acre resort on the Pacific coast with many of the world’s top financial minds to share their very best ideas.

“During the summit… Alex told the story of a $4 stock and its new technology that will replace smartphones.

“The company is one of those transformative disruptors – like Amazon, Apple and Netflix – that come along only once or twice in a generation.

“And despite hearing about dozens of great ideas at the event…

“ALL anyone wanted to ask Alex was… “What on earth is the name of this $4 stock!?”

And conveniently enough, that’s what I want to know, too… so let’s dig in and see what clues he drops in this “interview” with Corrina Sullivan.

“They have NO IDEA this stock exists.

“Yet it might just be the single stock with the most upside available in the markets today.”

And talks about how the stock is “cheap,” trading at 0.8X book value, and yet has very high revenue growth…

“revenue growth for the last five quarters:

“63%… 37%… 37%… 73%… 72%…”

Whatever could it be that’s going to “replace smartphones?”

“This company is a front-runner in a MASSIVE new $23 billion industry.

“The industry is expected to grow to as much as $77 billion by 2025.”

And it’s not just a startup idea, it already has a decent-sized business…

“It has more market share in this industry than even Go
