Highlights from Michael’s 44 year career in capital markets

In 1977, Michael Markowski joined Merrill Lynch upon his graduation from college.  Shortly thereafter, Mr. Markowski became a specialist at finding shares which had the potential to multiply by a minimum of five times.  The shares of first two companies he recommended were Phillips Industries at $4 and Geico at $7.  When the companies were acquired for cash, their share prices had multiplied by approximately ten and six times.

Throughout his career, Michael Markowski has researched the past to predict the future: 

  • His post mortem on bankrupt Enron’s financials enabled Michael to develop a predictive algorithm which he utilized to predict Lehman’s demise one year before it went bankrupt.  
  • Michael’s analysis of crashes, including crash of 2008, enabled him to develop an algorithm to predict crashes, including Brexit.
  • His research on Yahoo, Ebay, Amazon, Airbnb and UBER, etc., that produced returns of 1,000 times for their early round shareholders, enabled him to discover the common traits for identifying successful startups. 

Please Note: It is Mr. Markowski’s policy to NEVER PERSONALLY INVEST in any of the penny stocks that he writes about because it’s difficult for an analyst to remain objective if they hold shares in the companies they recommend.
