Here’s what people and the media are saying about Cody and his stock picks:
“I really wanted to to both thank you and share with you what I did as a result of what I have learned from following you over the last year or so. Thank You! I have an autistic son who has special learning needs which do not come cheap, the money I have made from following you and ‘understanding your philosophy’ will now pay for the additional care he needs! Please don’t ever underestimate the profound impact of what you are doing.
What you have taught me! (a real and recent example):
AAPL – Over the last 2 weeks instead of panicing and selling (old me) I loaded up more and more as it went down and loaded up to my maximum limit for one stock of 15% of my portfolio when it hit $502! I did the same with APOL – instead of exiting my sizeable short position when it rose from $20 to $22 (old me) , I loaded up my short position further when it hit $21.93 yesterday – it has already dropped back down to $21.07 as I write this! It has taken me a while to more than just intellectually understand your ‘contrarian’ – ‘flip it’ philosophy and to ‘get it in my gut!’. My 2 key integrated learnings are:
1. I now only ever consider long positions on stocks with strong long term fundamentals and short positions on stocks with fundamental weaknesses (usually your recommendations) and
2. I have learned to trust my gut feel again. That old ‘sell now’ or ‘buy now’ ‘gut feel’ that lost me so much in the past is now my friend because when it is screaming ‘sell’, I know it is probably time to ‘buy’ and vice versa.
With much gratitude!” – Alistair Lobo, independent investor, 2012
“Being a member of your site for the last few months has been one of the most educational things I’ve done in a long time. For years I struggled to understand the market and was generally too scared to invest in stocks and stuck with funds that made mediocre gains if any. I am now watching my portfolio grow and enjoying searching out new emerging markets and industries. I’m now feeling confident enough to branch out, just a little, on my own and find new companies to invest in. Without your site I doubt I would have ever felt confident enough to do that. Keep it up!” – Tommy Wisdom, independent investor, 2012
“I cannot describe how much I love your service. Before I subscribed to your service 2 months ago, I had been doing investing for over 10 years. I read many books, including “Intelligent Investor”. I was able to analyze the news and company financials. I was able to predict Apple’s Q1 earnings would be a big upward surprise because of China. Yet, I still did not make meaningful returns on my investments. The 2+ months of following you is enlightenment to me. I knew that I could not control the pace of my buying and selling well. Your advices really helped me to pace myself. Like this time around Apple earnings. I was able to hold back in the weeks before, and I stepped in right after the earning “miss”. Before, I would have run out of cash at that point. This is quite much like what I learned from skiing. Once I reached certain skill level, I was capable of skiing down black diamond slopes, yet I could not without falling. But once an experienced skier led me, I could easily finish the run. I’m really looking forward to a nice run for the rest of the year.” – Hai Chen, independent investor, 2012
“Cody, you called it dead right this time like you do all the time. The hardest trade I had to make was ignore the technicals and buy a few weeks ago. Thank you!” – Mystic, independent investor, 2012
“Well done on calling the bottom last week, Cody (not to say we won’t head lower, but I’m glad I got aggressive – and at one point I was literally nauseous). I hope all is well with you Cody and thanks for the advice!” – Scott David, independent investor, 2012
“I wanted to take the time to say thank you for making the information on this site available to subscribers. I have been putting money into stocks ever since I was sixteen. I have never really had enough money to make anything back. I started out with penny stocks at that age and quickly learned that the pink sheets are rigged. Thankfully I learned that lesson at a young age when I didn’t have a lot of money to lose. I then started picking up books, and reading as many online articles as I possibly could to learn as much about this system as possible. I have learned a lot over the years, but I have only been able to tread water and keep even. This year was destined to be a disaster because of some stupid mistakes in my dab lings with options. Point being, the information and explanations of your actions has helped me understand even more about the system, and I have been able to follow close enough to your trades that I will be able to wipe away some costly mistakes that I’ve made this year. As a military member, this means a lot to me seeing as how I can’t be absolutely sure that the government will hold up it’s end of the deal when it comes to my retirement many years down the road. You are helping me to build a stronger broader portfolio that doesn’t end with me solely relying on that retirement. So again, thank you.” – independent investor, 2012
“You make it simple. I love it. I was even for five years until I started with your service. I’m seeing some results. Thanks again for your service.” – Sarah Hocutt, independent investor, 2011
“Cody Willard, a Wall Street wonder at 25.” – NY Daily News, 2006
“I refer you to Cody Willard and his excellent newsletter — he’s been nailing them. He’s had them all.” – Jim Cramer, legendary hedge fund manager and CNBC anchor, 2005
“For the past 10 years, every single time I’ve made a significant tech investment I make one and only one call: to Cody Willard. He is the best (and least credited) tech investor out there.” – James Altucher, Formula Capital CEO, WSJ investment columnist, founder of Stockpickr.com, author of Trade Like Warren Buffett, 2011
“Cody Willard, a stock market expert….and the best hair on Wall Street.” – Jay Leno, 2008
“By the way, thanks. Great advice–and it takes guts not to follow the crowd. I really appreciate it!” – Chris Champion, independent investor, 2011
“One of the most independent minded insightful dudes in business. Cody’s enthusiasm and being right more often than not made me appreciate his approach to making the important calls when all hell is breaking loose.” – Diane Alden, independent investor, 2011
“Cody Willard started a hedge fund in 2002 (celebrity angle: a childhood friend, Neil Patrick Harris, was an investor) and turned bearish exactly five years later. He exited the hedge fund and entered television with “Happy Hour,” even inviting his mother onto the show as she pulled 30 percent out of her individual retirement account. Then this March, Mr. Willard turned bullish just before we hit bottom.” – New York Times, 2009
“Just scrutinizing the big picks Cody Willard made in 2003 for 2004. That’s right, his picks for this year, as of January 6, 2004. The worst one is already up 10%. The best is up 30%. Talk about hot. Wouldn’t hurt to know what that guy’s saying in his newsletter.” Jim Cramer, legendary hedge fund manager and CNBC anchor, 2004
“Cody got me into CY and DBA which are up 100% and 30% respectively for me. What more could you want? Insightful information and an expert on the technology revolution taking place today.” – Brent Kassing, independent investor, 2011
“Cody Willard, co-host of Fox Business Network’s ‘Happy Hour,’ would hardly be mistaken for a pinstriped Wall Street drone. But he’s got some serious financial credentials.” – Los Angeles Times, 2009
“Cody, you convinced me. I’ll subscribe. After the CIEN trade I followed you on, I made 75% in 20 minutes, more than enough for a one year subscription. I also grabbed some PUTS at the high and will sell them at 9:30 or so. Thanks, I’ll be following you.” – Jeff Hudson, independent investor, 2011
“Cody Willard, who combines hedge-fund managing with being a part-time rock star” – Financial Times, 2006
“Cody: The James West of the net. Calls them as he sees them; you set them up, he’ll knock ’em back. No bull, direct, insightful and does his own stunts (and tweets).” – Thomas Castronovo, independent investor 2011
“Cody Willard has been on top of this in his excellent newsletter. If you want to know more about where this is headed and how it could play out — skeptics, are you listening? — you want to read what he has to say.” – Jim Cramer, legendary hedge fund manager and CNBC anchor, 2003
“I’m a member of Cody’s newsletter since the days of Cody recommending Apple in the teens and buying Google after the Dutch IPO. Everyone, he’s the best!” – Rohit Kumar, independent investor, 2011
