Wisconsin Paper Mill
Worker uses “Pinchot Retirement Plan” to collect $18,850 in one day

There’s a new way to retire worry-free in America.

Instead of working well into their 50s and 60s, a small group of Americans have discovered a unique “Retirement Plan” (made possible by a former Governor and U.S. Presidential Advisor), which could pay you thousands of extra dollars per month, no matter what your age or income.

The Los Angeles Times says to consider it if you are “looking for an investment that keeps growing, regardless of recessions or stock market turmoil.”

Dear Reader,

For most people, August 7, 2006 was a day just like any other.

But for 55-year-old Ron Hanson, it was a morning he’ll never forget.

While most of us were preparing our morning coffee, Hanson (a Madison, Wisconsin native who spent most of his career in the paper industry), was cashing a check worth $18,850, according to U.S. Gov’t. records. That’s more than most Americans earn in several months.

Incredibly... Hanson was not the only one pocketing an enormous payment that day—nor did he collect the largest check. Government records report:

• Arthur Simms from Minnesota received payment the very same day—a check for $2,865.20

• And Eugene Allen from Washington cashed a check for more than most Americans earn in an entire year: $108,832.

Why are these men receiving so much money?

In short, thanks to several U.S. government programs spearheaded by a lifelong Presidential Advisor and State Governor named Gifford Pinchot, you can now collect tremendous amounts of income, every single month of the year, without doing any extra work.

Called the “Pinchot Retirement Plan” by many participants, this program is perfect for retirees, folks who want to retire soon, or anyone who wants more money deposited into their bank account on a regular basis...

• As a fellow named Paul Lyons told Forbes Magazine: “I own a lot of stocks and bonds, but I don’t think there’s anything in the world you can invest in as good as [The Pinchot Plan].” (Paul Lyons original $500 stake is now worth more than $500,000.)

• That’s why Forbes says it’s: “Like owning an oil reservoir that gets bigger every year.”

• The Los Angeles Times said the “The Pinchot Plan” has “long beaten the S&P 500,” and to consider it if you are “looking for an investment that keeps growing, regardless of recessions or stock market turmoil.”

Other mainstream news sources are also catching on. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Barron’s have all reported on this opportunity in the last two months.

After more than a decade of working in the financial industry, I can tell you without hesitation that the “Pinchot Retirement Plan” is your best bet to make sure you don’t run out of money.

For example...

You could have collected $77,360 in
dividend payments over the last 2 years

If you were participating in the “Pinchot Retirement Plan” over the past two years, you would have received 48 dividend checks during that time (that’s about one every other week).

As I’ll show you, these checks could have easily totaled $77,360 or more. That’s an extra $3,223 per month.

Checks you'll receive
in the next 12 months

By taking advantage of the Pinchot Retirement Plan, you'll receive 24 checks in the next year—about one every other week.

Here's the approximate check-delivery schedule for the next 12 months:

• Nov. 3rd 2006
• Nov. 9th 2006
• Nov. 15th 2006
• Dec. 5th 2006
• Dec. 21st 2006
• Jan. 15th 2007
• Feb. 5th 2007
• Feb. 14th 2007
• March 8th 2007
• March 13th 2007
• March 22nd 2007
• April 17th 2007
• May 3rd 2007
• May 16th 2007
• May 24th 2007
• June 6th 2007
• June 19th 2007
• July 16th 2007
• Aug. 8th 2007
• Aug. 14th 2007
• Sept. 7th 2007
• Sept. 11th 2007
• Sept. 19th 2007
• Oct. 15th 2007

Keep in mind, the date you receive your first check depends on how soon you get started. In the last two years, these checks could have easily paid you an extra $77,360.



And what’s remarkable about this plan is that at the same time, your assets grow every single day of the year—that’s on top of your dividend payments!

I’ve put together a chart (to the right), which shows the “Pinchot Retirement Plan” payment schedule over the next 12 months.

But before I give you the details on how to get started, I’d like to show you exactly how this Plan works, so you can decide if it’s something you want to consider.

Here’s the full story...

The Man Who
“Saved Retirement”
for Americans

The “Pinchot Retirement Plan” is named after a long-time U.S. government employee (and former governor of Pennsylvania), named Gifford Pinchot.

If you’ve never heard of Pinchot, you’re not alone.

He was an expert in the obscure but very lucrative profession of land management.

Mostly self-taught from a very young age—then schooled in France and Switzerland by geological and forestry scientists—Pinchot got his first big break when he was hired to manage George Vanderbilt’s 7,000-acre Biltmore estate in North Carolina.

When Pinchot took over the property, it was a mess. Fires, clear-cutting, construction, and erosion had taken their toll. But Pinchot knew the rich natural resources (which included lumber, coal, and water) could provide profits indefinitely... if they were properly cared for.

In the past 2 years, “the Pinchot Plan” could have paid you $77,360 in dividends alone...



Pinchot applied the scientific forestry techniques he learned overseas.

In short order, the Vanderbilt estate was making money for the first time ever. Vanderbilt was so impressed he set up an exhibit at the Chicago World’s Fair to demonstrate Pinchot’s model for land use.

Having established a reputation, Pinchot opened a New York office, to show wealthy Eastern landowners how to profit from their land. He made a fortune...

Pinchot bought a 148-foot, three-masted topsail schooner, complete with cabins and staterooms for a 12-man crew.

He and his family lived in a mansion called Grey Towers, in Milford, Pennsylvania. The property, which is now a National Historic Site, is a giant bluestone manor with three 60-foot turrets, 23 fireplaces, and 44 rooms.

Eventually, Pinchot’s work—and his overwhelming success—attracted the attention of the U.S. Government.

Pinchot was hired by the Department by the Interior, then ran the Division of Forestry. In his first year, Pinchot instructed owners of more than 400,000 acres of private woodlands how to best care for and profit from their land.

In short, Pinchot devised laws and strategies that were good for the environment... and good for the economy. He helped many men get rich... and he made sure the natural resources would be around for generations to come.

But what does Pinchot’s work have to do with you and your retirement?

It’s a remarkable situation. Let me explain...

What is the “Pinchot
Retirement Plan” Exactly?

Today, there are 6 “Pinchot Plan” companies listed on the stock market. They follow the “Pinchot Model” for land use and development.

These operations, as you’ll see, are not at all like regular businesses.

Instead, they simply manage tens of millions of acres of land. They sell timber, mining rights, manufactured products (like plywood and fiberboard), real estate (to developers and conservationists)... and rent their land to hunters, campers and farmers.

Another thing that makes these Pinchot companies different from regular businesses is that, thanks to Sections 856-860 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, they pay no corporate taxes on the Federal level.

As part of this arrangement, they are required to distribute 90% of their taxable income to shareholders.

Yet another important difference between these operations and ordinary stocks is that they are not nearly as susceptible to the ups and downs of the economy as regular businesses.

“The Pinchot Plan” Beat Stocks
and Bonds for the Past 33 years


If it’s not a good time to sell land and timber, they simply wait. It’s a luxury very few businesses have.

What’s incredible is that these “Pinchot Plan” companies are a heck of a lot safer, and far more profitable, than ordinary stocks. (See the chart on the right.)

Let me show you one example of what I mean...

How some Americans turned
$10,000 into nearly $1 million

About 20 years ago, a group of businessmen from Seattle established a land-management business, using the model Gifford Pinchot developed for George Vanderbilt and other wealthy East Coast families.

These men from Seattle started with 1.4 million acres of land in the Northwestern U.S., which they bought from a Montana lumberman and a defunct railroad.

The men from Seattle called their business “Plum Creek,” after a river on their property.

Over the next few years, the Plum Creek men added hundreds of thousands of acres to their holdings in Maine, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Michigan, just to name a few.

In fact, Plum Creek is now the largest private landowner in the America—8.2 million acres in 18 states.

And today, using many of the techniques first developed by Gifford Pinchot, the fellows running Plum Creek make an absolute fortune, year after year. According to the company’s most recent reports, which detail 2005 operations:

• They sold $764 million worth of timber. Keep in mind this is a tiny fraction (about 6%) of their overall timber holdings.

• They made $292 million by selling real estate. Some of this land was sold to people who wanted to invest in timber properties (about 188,000 acres). Some was sold to conservation groups to protect endangered species (about 22,600 acres). Some of this land was sold to developers (about 21,000 acres).

The company estimates they’ve got another 775,000 acres to sell over the next 15 years, at a premium (above the price they paid) of approximately $2 BILLION.


• Plum Creek sold “subsurface” mining rights in Virginia (with proven coal reserves) for $20 million.

• The company also makes its own plywood and fiberboard—and pocketed $504 million from these operations last year.

The point is, Plum Creek is a cash cow. In 2000 they made $598 million. They’ve increased profits every year since then, and made $1.5 billion last year.

And Plum Creek has been making shareholders a killing in dividends and overall gains ever since it went public:

• Over the past four years, Plum Creek has paid investors 115% gains, including 30% in dividends, trouncing the returns of the stock market (measured by the S&P 500 average) over the same period.

• Over the past 10 years, Plum Creek has paid 260% gains to shareholders, including about 100% in dividends. This is about twice as much as the stock market during the same period.

• Since Plum Creek went public 17 years ago, the company has paid shareholders an incredible 7,800% return, including 346% in dividends.

In other words, if you simply invested $10,000 with Plum Creek when they started their business in 1989, you’d now have close to a million dollars.

The beauty of this operation is that it’s set up to run this way indefinitely.

Each year, Plum Creek simply sells just a tiny portion of their assets. And they buy more when prices are low.

The point is, the money just keeps rolling in, year after year.

Why would you want to own a regular stock, when you could own an operation like Plum Creek instead, which is safer, pays bigger dividends, and grows its assets, without fail, every single year?

And think about it this way: When you become a shareholder in Plum Creek, you no longer have to worry about how the economy is going to affect your money. You don’t have to worry about the war in the Middle East or the “War on Terror.” The trees and land don’t care.

The trees keep growing every single year. It’s a fact of life. And the land keeps getting more expensive (see the chart below).


source: U.S. Department of Agriculture

That’s why Plum Creek is a perfect place to put your money for retirement.

You get paid a large dividend 4 times a year, and you can simply sit back worry-free, and watch the value of your investment go up over time.

This is as good as it gets in the investment world—a safe and conservative way to earn lots of income, as you watch your wealth multiply over time.

As I mentioned, there are 5 other Pinchot Plan companies on the stock market that are similar to Plum Creek. In fact, the five others (which includes one operation in Canada), are even more profitable than Plum Creek.

Have a look at what I mean:

• Southern U.S. —Pinchot Retirement Investment #2: This operation owns 2.4 million acres of timberland and real estate, the majority of which are in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. Since 2001 they’ve paid shareholders 247% gains, including 29% in dividends.

• Central U.S. — Pinchot Retirement Investment #3: This operation owns 1.7 million acres in Minnesota, Idaho, and Arkansas. Since January of 2003, they’ve paid shareholders 247%... including 80% in dividends. In fact, in March of this year, the business paid a one-day dividend of $15.15 for every share owned.

• The Pacific Northwest — Pinchot Retirement Investment #4: These guys own 585,000 acres in Oregon and Washington. Since early 2003, they’ve paid shareholders 365% gains, including 124% in dividends. In August of this year, the company paid a special one-day dividend of $7.54 for every share owned.

• Western U.S. — Pinchot Retirement Investment #5: This operation gives you ownership of 115,000 acres of timber and valuable real estate near Seattle, plus profits from managing another 522,000 acres up and down the West Coast. This operation has paid shareholders 232% gains since January of 2003... including 20% in dividends.

• Canada — Pinchot Retirement Investment #6: This business owns about 835,000 acres of trees in Canada. In roughly the past two years, they’ve paid 53% gains... including 29% in dividends.

As you can see, I’ve given you only a very short summary here. Just keep in mind that each of these operations works very much the same way...

"It’s very hard to lose money in [The Pinchot Plan]"

- Joel Shapiro, CEO of an
Atlanta-based financial firm



They own tremendous tracts of land. And they sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth of timber and manufactured products each year. They sell land to conservationists, mining companies, and developers when the price is right.

They pay you huge dividends every single year (required by law), and your original investment keeps growing.

I recommend you buy each of these 6 Pinchot Plan companies, including Plum Creek, right away.

But don’t simply rush out and call your stock broker.

Investing in Pinchot Plan companies is a little different from ordinary stocks. There are a few secrets you need to know about buying these companies to ensure that you get the best deal, and the most dividend income possible. I’ll give you more details in a second.

The good news is, you can invest in each of these companies, beginning with as little as $50, no matter where you live, and through any regular stockbroker.

If you simply bundle these six companies together, you would make a tremendous amount of money from the dividends alone.

Over the past two years, in fact, you would have received 48 dividend checks, sent to your house or bank account.

• By owning 1,000 shares of each of these operations, your checks would have totaled $38,680. If you owned 2,000 shares of each of investment, you would have collected $77,360 in payments.

I don’t know about you, but most people I know could use an extra $77,360 in cash distributed over two years.

That’s an extra $3,223... every single month!

One Pinchot Plan company recently paid a one-day dividend of $7.54 per share. Another paid a one-day dividend of $15.15 per share. If you owned 1,000 shares, you would have collected a one-day payment of $15,150. When was the last time one of your stocks did that?

Of course, the value of these investments will likely go up every year (sometimes by several hundred percent). So not only do you get great income... your original investment just keeps multiplying over time.

That’s the Pinchot Retirement Plan. I believe it’s safer and considerably more profitable than regular stocks. And all the independent research I’ve seen says the same...

The Hancock Financial Group, for example, says the Pinchot Plan has beaten stocks for the past 35 years. Barron’s says “The Pinchot Plan” has beaten stocks by about 480% over the last century.

Now you can see why I say that Gifford Pinchot is the man who “saved retirement for Americans”... and why these “Pinchot Plan” companies are perfect for retirees... and for those getting ready to retire.

Wealthy Investors have
been using "The Pinchot
Plan" for years:

• The Massachusetts State Pension Fund has $1.45 billion invested in “The Pinchot Plan,” according to the Boston Globe.

• The California Public Employee's Retirement System (or Calpers) has about $1 billion invested in “The Pinchot Plan.”

• The Austin Police Retirement System has 10% of its $400 million pension fund invested in “The Pinchot Plan.”

• The Richest unversities in the country, including Harvard, Yale, and Johns Hopkins, have each poured millions into “The Pinchot Retirement Plan.”



As I mentioned, one of the big reasons why these unique investments pay out so much more than regular stocks is because, unlike regular stocks, they pay no Federal taxes at the corporate level. Because of this benefit, they’re able to pass on as much as 90% of their income to regular investors (that’s you and me).

It simply doesn't get any better than this in the investment world if you are looking for more income, and a super-safe way to grow your wealth year after year.

If you want to pursue this idea further, I’d like to send you a free Research Report that explains everything you need to know. Let me show you how to get started right away...

How “The Pinchot Plan” can
pay for your retirement

My name is Dr. Steve Sjuggerud. It’s a Norwegian name (pronounced “sugar-rude”), although I was born and raised in the United States.

I spent the first half of my investment career working at big Wall Street institutions.

Right out of college, I got a job as a stockbroker. I learned pretty quickly that a broker’s main job isn’t to help his clients make money... but to simply get more clients.

My next job was working for a global mutual fund. I was promoted to Vice President, in charge of running a $50 million international fund. It turns out this job involved a lot of sales too. I had to spend several hours each day trying to sell the fund to potential investors.

Then I worked for two different billion-dollar hedge funds, and earned my PhD in Finance. I learned a lot in these positions, but I realized the hedge fund world still meant a lot of schmoozing, selling, and meetings... the part of the investment business I want to avoid.

So about 5 years ago I left all that behind, and started True Wealth, my own private advisory for retirees and people who want to retire soon. In that short time, we’ve grown to become one of the top 3 investment letters in America. We have readers in more than 125 countries.

I think we’ve done so well because month after month, my goal is to simply show you safe and profitable investment strategies you won’t hear about anywhere else.

I’ve been looking at what we call the Pinchot Retirement Plan very closely over the past few years. What I’ve found is that it is one of the safest and most lucrative investments in the world right now.

If you are interested in getting the full details, I would like to send you, absolutely free, my full Research Report, called: The Pinchot Plan – A New Way to a Worry-Free Retirement.

This Research Report explains exactly how these investments work. It explains how and when you’ll receive your dividend checks... how much you will collect... and most importantly, how to make these 6 investments right away through almost any regular broker.

You see, I believe most people take way too much risk when they invest their money. My goal is to show you much safer opportunities — where you can make a small fortune at the same time.

My passion is investment research... finding great investments no one else is talking about.

To find new and profitable ideas, I make more than a dozen research trips every year all over the world.

In recent months, for example, I’ve traveled to Tennessee, Vancouver, New York, Baltimore, California... plus overseas to Switzerland, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and China. The only reason I travel to these places is to talk to smart investors and to investigate new ideas.

I now spend all of my time doing what I love — research. I don’t have to schmooze... or entertain clients... or sit in board meetings, like I did when I worked in the world of institutional investing.

Now I simply find great investment opportunities... and invite people like you to have a look at my research. If it works, you’ll probably keep reading... if not, you can simply cancel, and can even get your money back.

To me, that’s how it should work in the investment world — no secret interests or hidden agendas.

What I’ve found after working with literally hundreds of thousands of retirees (and people looking to retire) is that most people simply don’t realize there are safer and more profitable investments than ordinary stocks, bonds, and real estate.

Of course, the Pinchot Plan isn’t the only thing I’ve been researching recently.

Here’s another good opportunity I’ve found, which most investors have never considered. It’s another great way to have more money for retirement...

Fast-Food “Trademarks”
that make you rich

Did you know that two of North America’s best fast-food chains allow you to collect tremendous royalties, every single month, simply by becoming an owner of their “trademark”?

Every time one of these restaurants sells a burger, shake, or fries... you collect royalties.



It’s an incredibly good deal...

You can simply become a part-owner of the trademarked name (like “McDonald’s” or “Burger King” for example). Then, every time one of these restaurants sells a burger, shake, or fries... you collect royalties.

For example...

Fast-Food Trademark #1 gives you a 3% royalty on all sales at a popular fast-food restaurant that’s been around since 1956. These stores raked in $550 million last year.

I guarantee you’ve heard of this brand before. And as a shareholder, every time one of the 660 trademarked restaurants sells a hamburger, soda, or French fry, you get part of the 3% royalty payment.

You’ll receive a royalty check at the end of every month — 12 total per year.

These royalty payments have increased 3 times in 2006 alone. And since this trademark went public in 2002, investors have received a royalty payment every single month. That’s 53 months in a row, and counting. The total return has been 111%, including 48% in royalty payments.

Fast-Food Trademark #2 gives you a 4% royalty of another popular restaurant chain — this one with 275 stores. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of this place too. It’s a pizza restaurant and sports-bar.

Every time one of the 275 franchises sells a pizza, sandwich, beer, or soda, you get a 4% royalty, delivered to your house or bank account at the end of every month. Since this trademark royalty went public in 2002, they’ve increased the royalty payments on 8 separate occasions.

Since 2002, when this trademark royalty went public, shareholders have received 49 royalty payments. Total return has been 126%, including 46% in royalty payments.

If you want more income, paid to you every month, collecting royalties on these two fast-food trademarks is the perfect way to do it.

When you take a trial subscription to my True Wealth advisory service, I’ll send you, free of charge, my new report called: How to Collect Large Monthly Royalties with Fast-Food Trademarks.

Is this type of unique investment right for you?

You’ll have to decide for yourself. But I guarantee it’s much safer and more profitable than ordinary stocks and bonds right now. And if you are looking for more money for retirement... or if you simply want more income every month, this could be the perfect fit.

And I promise you this about my True Wealth monthly advisory: It is like no other investment newsletter you have seen before.

I guarantee you will learn about unique opportunities that you won’t hear about anywhere else.

For example, as soon as you become a subscriber, you’ll also learn about two of my other favorite investment strategies right now:

Stocks that are guaranteed
to never drop below $10

Did you know there’s an investment that gives you all the upside of stocks... but guarantees you won’t lose money if stocks go down?

When stocks go up, you get all the gains. But when stocks drop, the worst you can do is get back your original $10 per share.



This investment was created by Merrill Lynch, and it’s called a MITTS (Market Index Target Term Security). Sounds confusing, I know, but it’s really simple.

You can buy and sell MITTS just like ordinary stocks, for around $10 a share. When stocks go up, you get all the gains. But when stocks drop, the worst you can do is get back your original $10 per share. MITTS are perfect for money you want to invest in stocks... but simply can’t afford to lose.

As Business Week said: “The stock market has no sure things, but MITTS are about as close as you can get... Think of MITTS as stock market plays for chickens.”

My Investment Report called MITTS — The Upside of Stocks without the Downside Risks, comes free with your True Wealth Subscription. I’ll show you exactly how to buy and sell MITTS, and which three offer you the best deal right now.

Or how about this opportunity few Americans have ever heard of...

The 13.5% Government Bond

Did you know there’s a regular government bond that is now paying 13.5% interest per year?

If you take advantage of this situation now, you may be able to lock in these huge gains for the next decade and beyond.

Here’s a government bond that pays about 3-times more than what most people are used to...



Plus, it gets even better — the value of this super-safe bond is likely to skyrocket over the next few years as investors rush in to get this great rate.

That means you’ll make even more money — I predict 30% gains a year for at least the next three years. All from an ordinary government bond!

This is one of the truly great secrets of the financial world. In fact, the only other people I’ve ever seen write about it were the folks at Forbes Magazine, in their July 2005 issue. When you become a True Wealth Subscriber, you’ll get my Research Report with all the details — it’s called: The 13.5% Government Bond.

I can’t give away too many of the details on these investments here, because it wouldn’t be fair to the folks who have paid for my research...

But as soon as you subscribe, I’ll send you everything you need to know.

Plus, you’ll get the details on: How to make great tax free income over the next 12 months... An easy way to take advantage of the best real estate investment in the world (it’s not in the U.S.)... and details on a super-profitable secret gold investment that was created by a U.S. President. And that’s just for starters.

I can’t say for sure if True Wealth is right for you, but I believe the research my team and I do is better than anything else out there. And our track record backs this up...

For example, I’m particularly proud of the investments we found during the last bear market, which made our subscribers very nice gains, while most investors were taking a beating...

>> During the last bear market, for example, I recommended a retail business with operations in all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 7 DAYS, readers who followed my advice could have made 300% PROFITS.

>> A few days later, I recommended that folks in my special trading alert buy one of the biggest electronics firms in the world. 19 DAYS later, this recommendation realized a GAIN OF 341%.

>> A few months later, I recommended a trade on one of America’s most important telephone and Internet service companies. In 22 DAYS investors who took this advice could have made 111% PROFITS.

In the past year, we’ve found opportunities that have returned 453%... 217%... and 17 recommendations that have returned double-digit gains.

I know... anyone can cherry-pick a few winners. But our overall track record is unmatched as far as I know. As of the publication of my September 2006 issue, for example, we had 21 recommendations in our portfolio... only two of them had gone down in value.

In fact, our True Wealth research has done so well that many investment professionals have started following our recommendations for themselves and their clients...

>>Subscriber Gary Munson, who’s a Certified Financial Planner and a Senior VP at one of the world’s biggest investment firms, told us: “After being in the investment business for almost 24 years, I feel I’m fairly qualified to evaluate investment recommendations as I am a financial advisor and portfolio manager. Steve’s recommendations and the way he thinks are absolutely top-notch. His newsletter recommendations have become a major arrow in my quiver that I am able to utilize in my own clients’ accounts. I read a lot of newsletters and other literature constantly looking for investment ideas, and Steve’s TRUE WEALTH ranks at the very top.”

>>Subscriber Brian Rose, a full-time equity trader from San Francisco, wrote to say: “I KNOW I will have much more money for retirement because of Dr. Sjuggerud’s True Wealth. It is comforting to know that Steve has no agenda other than to make me money.”

>>Andrew Lawson, from Charleston, SC, said: “I was a stockbroker for 19 years. I trained with the 4th largest NYSE member firm at that time. I learned more from Dr. Sjuggerud in the last 8 months about the wide universe of investments than I learned in 19 years as a broker... Steve’s recommendations are conservative, they make sense, and they regularly make large profits — much more than one would expect from safe investments.”

How will you know if True Wealth is right for you? Here’s what I suggest...

6-Month, Risk-Free Trial

I would like you to have the next 6 months to evaluate True Wealth at no risk or obligation, so you can take your time deciding whether or not it’s right for you. In fact, here’s what I propose...

The world’s best $1 stock?

My specialty is super-safe and profitable investments.

In the past, this $1 stock has sold for $50 per share.



But occasionally, I find a speculative opportunity that is simply too good to pass up. For example, right now, there’s a stock selling for about $1 a share, on the NASDAQ exchange.

In the past, this stock has sold for $50 a share. You see, they operate in an industry that goes through big up and down cycles. Right now, we’re leaving the bottom of one of these cycles, and the share price is really starting to move up — it's jumped about 40% in the last year.

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much more about this opportunity here. All I can reveal is that this company controls one of the world's most important commodities. And in boom cycles like the one we're entering right now, shareholders make an absolute fortune. It happens over and over again.

If you like to speculate with a very small percentage of your portfolio, this is my #1 recommendation. You could easily make 300%, possibly much more.

When you sign up for a trial subscription to True Wealth, I’ll send you a free copy of my report called: My Favorite $1 Stock.

Again, this is not my typical type of recommendation... and you should only invest a very small percentage of your portfolio. Because if it takes off over the next 12 months as I expect, a small stake is all you’ll need.

To get started right away, click here.

True Wealth, by the way, costs just $99 for a full year of research and reports. Is it worth paying the equivalent of just $8 a month to learn about safe and profitable investment opportunities you'll hear about nowhere else? I think so, but here's what a few paid subscribers have told me recently...

** “I have been following Dr. Sjuggerud’s investments for several years. Only wish I had known him early in my life. My $600,000.00 is now worth well over a $1,000,000.00. I think that I am almost ready to retire.”
– Clyde Lafond, 68, Burbank, CA

** “I have been reading Dr. Sjuggerud’s reports for over six years. I took my wife’s portfolio from her advisor and quadrupled it.”
– R. C. Beck, M.D., 80, retired cardiac surgeon

** “Of all the people I follow... Dr. Sjuggerud is, by far, the best at what he does...make me money! I have a 7-figure portfolio with many years of investing acumen. I’m up over 100K on his recommendations (in less than a year). No one comes close.”
– Raymond Martin, 53, former news producer at CBS

The way I look at it, the longer you wait to get in on these investments, the less money you will have for retirement.

Sincerely,


Dr. Steve Sjuggerud

Let's see if we can find all these stocks.

..."if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" !

...from what I can find...the "Pinchot Retirement Plan" seems to be nothing more than a pitch for Steve Sjuggerud's newsletter at ~ $100/yr. !


<edit> As I look into this a bit more...I DO like the concept ! fwiw



Interested to hear anything others might know.

Ever heard of "the pinchot retirement plan"?
something about certain types of U. S. stocks that have special tax and dividend attributes. Plum Creek Timber Company is one.

The timber REITs that may be nice candidates for this strategy are :


Plum Creek Timber (PCL)

http://www.plumcreek.com/


Rayonier Inc. (RYN)

http://www.rayonier.com/


...and...


Potlatch Corp. (PCH)

http://www.potlatchcorp.com/

-------------------------

These are the ONLY publicly traded "Timber REITs" in the U.S. (that I have found so far) !

Here's a running tab:
#1) Plum Creek (PCL)
#2) Rayonier (RYN)
#3) Potlatchcorp (PCH)
#4) LFB is the 585,000 acre one in the Pacific NW.
"longview fibre corp"
#5) Pope resources (POPEZ)
#6) Bowater incorporated (BOW) -- ??

FAST FOOD TRADEMARKS
#1)A&W (AW.UN)
Ok, #2 is Pizza delight "PDM royalties income fund" (TSE:PDM.UN) this was a little trickier to figure out, because there are a few other restaurants under their brand, but sure enough, 2002 IPO and 4% royalty - Ah, I think it trades on the toronto stock exchange, and prices & dividends are in canadian dollars - FYI.

-> What I'd really like to find out about is that government bond, any ideas of how to figure that one out?
DD is fun!

Hey TRO- sorry I couldn't resist jumping into the filters against your advice, I'm still paper trading though. Please keep these detective work games coming, they're fun & seem quite profitable!

Games?

This is NOT A GAME!

Real money is involved.

Haha, I know it's not a game when there's money involved.
But for me, it'll be a while until there's money involved...hence my outlook.

Does that list look accurate to you? Which of them stand out to you?

you can build your own (I did) Timber REIT Index by buying PCL, RYN, PCH, LFB, TWF.UN, and ADN.UN. PCL is the biggest by far and the most diversified - they all trade together, really - so even just buying PCL would give you solid Timber exposure. oh, and a nice tax-advantaged (deferred) dividend, too. Income from cutting trees is considered a capital gain (the IRS considers trees to be capital assets - pretty cool) so Timber REITs are the ONLY REITS whose distributions are not taxed at marginal income tax rates. that's pretty cool.
