Porter Stansberry founded Stansberry Research in 1999. They are a private publishing company that’s based in Baltimore Maryland.
The entire service is built on the back of Porter’s newsletter, Stansberry’s Investment Advisory. The monthly newsletter deals with safe investments, and critiques the state of the current market, to explore what the best moves are for new and veteran investors right now.
Porter has the pedigree to be a respected financial advisor as well. His biggest claim to fame was actually predicting the mortgage crisis well before it hit the United States.
Porter Stansberry was also the first American editor of Britain’s longest running financial newsletter, the Fleet Street Letter. Currently Stansberry Research provides more than 20 expert financial analysts that regularly create educational and analytical articles related to finance and global economics.
The range of viewpoints held by those analysts represents one of the strengths of Stansberry Research. Rather than present one unified view of financial markets to which all analysts must adhere, the publisher instead promotes what it calls its mosaic of opinions, encouraging each analyst to utilize their own expertise when crafting their work.
In this way, readers are presented with a diverse range of thoughts and can better utilize the information that is most relevant to their personal financial sensibilities and goals. This method of operation is derived from the publisher’s desire to provide only the highest quality analysis to readers.
