Can you Bank with the Rothschilds in Africa?

African Bank Teaser from Yiannis Mostrous solved

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, January 12, 2011

We’re mired in snow emergency up here in Massachusetts, so today’s article is a rerun — this was originally published as part of the Friday File for the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars on November 12. It has not been revised or updated except to update the disclosure information at the bottom. As far as I know this teaser ad is not currently in active circulation, though my opinion about the stock and theme remains the same — and the stock teased is relatively unchanged from early November.

The folks at KCI must have a thing for the Rothschild family, because this is the second time they’ve built a teaser around following the investment moves of the Rothschilds to build your own fortune. Last time it was Elliott Gue, speculating that the Rothschilds would be moving into deepwater drilling services and taking over Seadrill (at least, that’s the conclusion I reached from his teaser), and of course, I’d love to agree with him since I’m a Seadrill shareholder and that was the first stock I profiled for the Irregulars a couple years ago (I don’t agree, but I’d love to — and if the Rothschilds want my shares, they can buy ’em for the right price).

This time, though, we’re told by Yiannis Mostrous that the Rothschilds are “going to Africa,” and that you can follow their money to make some of your own … if only you’ll first subscribe to his Silk Road Investor so he can show you the signposts.

Africa makes for some great investing stories, and this teaser is no different:

“The Last Great Investment Opportunity!

“Kings, pharaohs, sultans and Alexander the Great dared to dream big here. Invest with the Rothschilds today and take your place among the lions of Africa. You’ll tell and retell the story of raking in millions on this trade for years to come!”

Sounds exciting, right? Well, it gets better — as with most Africa stories these days, it also involves the Chinese, friends to any African despot with access to a copper mine (OK, that’s a cheap shot — they’re not doing much compared to what other colonial superpowers did in their pre-politically incorrect years):

“At the height of the financial crisis in 2008, the global investment community was preoccupied with the subprime debacle and resulting collapse of the U.S. banking industry.

“The Rothschild family seized the opportunity to act on their African ambitions. There was a top-secret meeting in Beijing. A deal was cut with Chinese government officials.

“The financial maneuvering was cleverly disguised as an investment by the Chinese government. As the Bear Stearns collapse dominated world headlines, a state-owned Chinese bank took a large stake in an African bank.

“While the global financial markets were melting down and investors the world over were wringing their hands, Rothschild agents worked through the Chinese government and positioned the family to make another trillion dollars.”

And Mostrous is a bit pushier about it, but I basically agree with him when he says that …

“Africa is the single greatest frontier and emerging market investment opportunity on Earth in 2011.”

Which means that I’m interested to find out how he thinks we should profit from Africa — I’ve already told you what I think the most interesting idea in Africa is for small investors right now (that’s Lonrho, which is now also one of my largest personal holdings), but it’s clear that he’s looking at something a bit bigger, which isn’t necessarily a bad idea (particularly for those who are somewhat more risk-averse).

So what is it? Here’s what he says about this investment:

“After all my research on Africa, there is one investment opportunity that you simply cannot afford to miss…

“Invest with the Rothschild banking dynasty and you’ll rake in more profits on one monster trade than all the money you’ve ever earned before!

“After carefully examining over 467 companies in Africa, I’ve come up with a short list of 1 super investment. This African bank is a investment model that rests on secure pillars: political stability, rule of law, property rights, access to capital and public investment in education, health and social services.

“This African bank would be a GREAT investment even if the Rothschild banking dynasty were not quietly pulling the strings behind the scenes to conquer Africa!

“When the Rothschild family engages in classified meetings with the Chinese government, and soon after one of the four largest state-owned banks in China acquires a huge equity stake in an African bank, it’s time to sit up and take notice.

“You have a golden opportunity to buy this top-secret bank stock now, before it starts gapping higher on the charts. It’s a perfectly safe, secure investment in Africa that will double or triple your investment capital.

“’Probably the best financial systems of any emerging market are in South Africa,’ says Jan Randolph, head of sovereign risk at Global Insight. ‘Their banks are as good as ours, and their capital markets are as developed as anywhere else in the West or Japan.’”
