The markets have never been more challenging.
- Deciding where to focus and why is overwhelming.
- You're not getting consistent results and have no idea how to fix that.
- The Fed, Washington and Wall Street are out of control.
- Computers trade so fast humans can't keep up
- It’s harder than ever to keep your money safe
And your options aren’t great
- You know the game is rigged. But you have no idea which stocks to buy or what tactics can put the odds in your court.
- DIY is challenging. Most investment research leaves you with more questions than answers. Not to mention, a lot of it is crap.
- Courses are hit and miss. Many focus on specific tactics and are uber-expensive. They can be long and boring, and fail to show you how to achieve consistent results over time.
- Hiring a professional is expensive, if you can find a good one. Most cost thousands of dollars a year yet provide very little proactive guidance and are often late to big trends. Many prioritize big clients over smaller investors who could really use the help.
- It's easier than ever to make bad decisions. The Internet is filled with hype masquerading as research. Once in a while you may get lucky but odds are most of the time you won't.
What you need instead is the confidence that you're on the right track. That you own the right companies. And a breakdown of exactly how to pursue both. We call this being "One Bar Ahead®"
Being “One Bar Ahead®” means you get:
- Meaningful results: Aligning your money with where it's going means you and your money will capture structural shifts changing the world we live in. Conventional diversification and sector based analysis is based on where the world has been. And, it's badly broken.
- Professional-grade tactics explained in plain English: Most people want to buy great stocks but simply lack the knowledge, education and tools to find 'em.
- A rigorously researched and proven framework: Buying a stock without knowing how it "fits" is like driving without knowing where you are going. But, sadly, that's what most people do with entirely predictable results.
- Peace of mind: Having a plan and knowing how to execute it gives you confidence and helps you sleep through at night.
- 42 years of experience: in global markets mean I have first hand experience and perspective others don't. I'll share where the money's going and why, often months ahead of the headlines. Often including information Wall Street can't or won't share.
- Education: I believe educated investors are more successful so I do my best to make sure you know when, how and why to make the most of our time together.
Growth with and without One Bar Ahead®
With One Bar Ahead® you can build real sustainable wealth over time without the false starts and mistakes that trip up most investors. You'll learn to approach the markets with newly found confidence and the skills needed to make the most of it through good times and bad. No PhD or previous investing experience required. All in plain English.
One Bar Ahead® helps you get on the right track.
Many investors fail for one simple reason ... they lack the long-term vision and perspective needed to get through short-term chaos. OBA is a rules based approach that takes emotion out of the equation.
What sets One Bar Ahead® apart?
Goodbye to guesswork
Most investing services are little more than glorified "tip sheets" focused on the hot money. If that's what you want, fine.
One Bar Ahead® is about investing in optimism and its outcome is controlling your financial destiny. We have real discussions about which stocks to buy, why and how ... all of which is backed by decades of data-driven research and experience.
One Bar Ahead® involves 1)recognising that much of what we've been taught to believe about the financial markets isn't true any longer or is at best misguided and 2) investing in a new financial paradigm based on where the world is going rather than where it's been.
I’ve been closely involved in global markets for 40+ years as a researcher, analyst, consultant, private investor and trader.
During that time, I've learned a thing or two about making money in the markets. How to find great stocks, manage risk and many of the strategies and tactics that have helped successful investors and traders go from zero to millions, perhaps even billions of dollars.
Knowing what to buy is only half the battle, though. Things change when you understand how and why, too. It’s empowering and, if I have anything to say about it, fun.
Some of my readers have been with me for more than 20 years, and that doesn't exactly happen by accident.
Written in plain English
Many analysts play buzzword bingo because they think it makes them sound smart.
Every investing idea, every explanation, every bit of research is presented in plain English that beginners understand and professionals appreciate.
No hype, no gimmicks, no gotchas!
Is it worth the money?
We like to think so, but don't take our word for it. Here are what our members say:
I absolutely love Keith’s service
I absolutely love Keith's service (and all of the workers behind the scenes deserve a lot of credit as well!). I have only been a member of the Fitz-Gerald group for a year and I am so thankful for Keith and his leadership through some troubling times in the market! Believe it or not, up until a year ago, i had only invested in real estate and did very well! I then decided to diversify...into the market! Well...(shock and surprise to me!) that went dismally! However, with Keith's leadership and guidance, i have picked my ego off the floor (and my shocked investment portfolio) and feel more confident that I can (and will be able to) manage my own investments into the future. Keith, you are a tremendous Leader! Thank you!
So happy to be part of OBA! I have paid for the fee many times over in a very short time. Big Blessing!
You offer a great service that is truly second to none
Keith, congratulations on the continued expansion of eager subscribers! You offer a great service that is truly second to none. There isn’t anything like it, as far as I know. I have seen lots of questions on the AMAs from new subscribers, so as a KFG subscriber since January 2014, I wanted to pass along a few lessons I have learned using your service. In the beginning, I felt like I had to follow every bit of your recommendations to a T. I was often frustrated when I would get stopped out using your stops, but then of course watch the stock rise another 20% while I’m on the sidelines. I wanted my portfolio to match the KFG portfolio exactly. I thought that was the best way to success, but it wasn’t really working for me. So instead of buying every stock as soon as you recommended it and rebalancing to make the 50/40/10, I started deciding if the stock was what I wanted. I started using my own knowledge of technical stock patterns and indicators and reviewed the stock with my own parameters, but the really big one was whether I want to own this stock in 5 or even 10 years from now. I kept the 50/40/10, but with the stocks I picked from your list or from the OBA 50 that I had previously had experience with. We have to remember, you serve a VERY large audience, and you have a lot of people to work for with different goals and tolerances. This really shaped my portfolio to where I was fully satisfied with my choices and can say that from the bottom in March 2020 to the end of 2021, I doubled my portfolio value (not just doubled returns, but much more, since I was only 50–70% invested). 2022 was tough, but your overall advice and encouragement was instrumental. I can’t say enough about that part of your service; the expert knowledge of market pulse and what the markets were doing, and the encouragement when things looked tough kept me in the game. I sold and rebought on those nuggets of wisdom. I also kept a journal of all my thoughts and evaluations of what was working and what I got wrong, pre-planning the next moves I would make, so when it got emotional, I had thought it out beforehand. In just 3 weeks, my portfolio has gained over 26% because I kept buying on the biggest down days. I know we aren’t out of trouble yet, but the confidence you gave me to buy into the fear… well, I can’t thank you enough.
Following your advice allowed me to put my son through college and have financial security.
I have been a long-time follower and subscriber (One Bar Ahead & before) so keep up the good work. Following your advice allowed me to put my son through college and have financial security. I love your analysis and clear writing style.
Thanks for your daily letter - always contains something to think about.
Another problem with investors—speaking from experience here—is our education. As an investor or stock picker—if you are right, say 75% of the time—you'd probably be considered one of the greatest ever. If you've been trained as an engineer as I have—if you have a 75% success rate, you're considered an abject failure. As I heard a professor say to one of his students that thought he deserved 75% on a test as he was tearing up the kid’s test paper—"that means only ONE engine fell off the plane"!! True story. That's a really hard mindset to break by the way—thanks for your daily letter—always contains something to think about.
The short term gains on this one trade thus far more than paid for my (discounted) subscription
Nobody else suggested or called me up and said, "Hey Craig, I suggest a position in... [ticker]” or any other stock for that matter. What today’s financial advisors do call clients about is selling stocks like Apple or Microsoft in order to put more money in their Model Portfolio (Balanced Portfolio: Traditional 60/40). No individual investor will EVER build wealth doing Model Portfolios based on Modern Portfolio Theory, i.e., Balanced 60/40 allocation. The financial world forever changed after 2020. Keith knows this. Today's generation of financial advisors exclusively utilize (promote) ETF's and Index Funds, as well as actively managed Mutual funds. What they do not promote at any brokerage is individual stocks because of the fact of liability and fees. Ever since discount brokerages arrived in force about 20 years ago, individual stocks became the domain of only a minority of individual investors. It’s gotten so bad that when proxy votes come up, investors are repeatedly nagged to vote. Few of them bother and believe me, there are far fewer individual stock holders today. The investing world has already changed, post-2000. Now, it’s changing again! Charles Schwab came out in the WSJ a few years ago and even said a "prospective client with $1 million in individual stock holdings would not be attractive to us as a firm". It’s all about management fees (1% of assets). Each financial advisor has about 170 individual clients these days. So, the business has become a volume-oriented business. Individual stocks are not profitable for stock brokers or their employers any longer, so they do not generally recommend them anymore. Besides, they have no talent!! It’s salesmanship, as always. Individual stock holdings are still the ONLY way to successfully build real wealth over a lifetime. All you get with balanced portfolios is 7%‒8% average long-term annual returns, at best. It may be much less in this decade. Just saying.
LOVE BEING IN THE OBA FAMILY!
I love being in the OBA family—it has really helped me streamline my portfolio and my overall perspective on the markets.
I’m 100% in on your strategies
Keith—As a “late starter” 10 years post-early retirement and after decades of using the big financial advisor companies to pick my portfolio, I'm 100% in on your strategies and am self-managing. I've rotated into the portfolio I want from the OBA 50 (already greatly improved returns) plus I now know what the strategy and plan is thanks to OBA; a great feeling.
Keep up the good work you do!
I'm sure I am one of your older subscribers so I have a lot of years of experience (no, change that to "exposure") to the offerings in the investment world. I don't think you know how valuable your information and real-world insights are! Understanding the "Whys" of what is happening makes my decision-making far easier and more confident. Keep up the good work you do for all of us!
This is the first service I’ve ever felt I could and would 100% recommend to others.
First, I'd like to commend you, Keith and Kuni for what a fantastic job you all are doing. While I find dealing with “customer service” usually tends to be frustrating and I've only dealt with you and Kuni a few times this past year, they were easy and pleasant experiences. You all care and it shows. When I started the subscription I was worried that a once a month issue wouldn't be enough but I happily found you all did more than that. Keith keeps us all updated with regular Monday and Friday emails and even special update emails when needed. It makes me feel a lot safer with the investment choices knowing you all will keep us informed. I like how Keith is constantly forward-thinking and seems to have the inside contacts. His recommendations are well reasoned, explained and often months ahead of everyone else. Often Keith says something and months or more later I hear other services start talking about the same thing, he keeps us ahead of the curve. :) Surprisingly, I can't think of a single negative thing to say and refreshingly have nothing but praise for you all. I bought my first stock over 42 years ago and have had many courses and subscriptions since. I said this before during a livestream but this is the first service I've ever felt I could and would 100% recommend to others. You all should be proud of what you are doing and what you've accomplished. :)

From Clint (OBA Member)
I joined the One Bar Ahead family in Feb 2022. By simply "following along", my portfolio is currently up over 36% YTD!!!
I have invested (and wasted) a lot of money over the years on subscriptions to a bunch of different newsletters. Not a single one has been worth it.... Until I subscribed to One Bar Ahead.
Every other stinkin' newsletter and/or stock advice guru ALWAYS spent more time and energy trying to upsell me more of whatever flavor of Koolaid they were selling. Very little effort was given to actually providing good investment information.
I was so tired of all of the garbage information floating around out there, that I am sorry to admit, I almost didn't subscribe to One Bar Ahead out of fear of wasting more money.
Boy was I wrong to think that! I am so glad that I decided to subscribe!!!
Your insight and information is given in a logical, straightforward and honest way so that everyone from the greenest beginner to the experienced pro can learn, understand and apply the information provided.
The best part is that every communication that I get from you is actually helpful in my investing journey. I don't just get endlessly spammed with sales letters to "upgrade your subscription to the ultimate, super secret, insiders only, pot of gold, platinum package".
Anyway, all joking aside, it is very refreshing and greatly appreciated that you provide such an incredible, valuable and informative service. I can guarantee you that I am not the only one that appreciates the gift of your knowledge. So, thank you. You're great!
If we're doing our jobs correctly, it should be very simple. We purposefully write everything in plain English. No PhDs required and no buzzword bingo. You can ask questions and get full sentence answers in the weekly AMAs.
No! It doesn't matter if you have a little money or a lot, the principles are the same. Case in point, the OBA Family includes readers who are just starting out with a few thousand dollars to their name to professionals with hundreds of millions at their fingertips.
No! In fact, one of our core objectives is to help you grow as an investor by introducing information, strategies, and tactics in understandable chunks that help you grow your knowledge over time. There's no pressure and you can "level up" at your own pace. Just like thousands of investors who began with Keith and have already made the journey from rookie to seasoned investors in their own right.
Nope. You can follow along using plain-old stocks and funds if you want. That said, options "done right" are one of the last remaining edges an individual investor can have. That's why we include ongoing education at no additional charge.
Yes - from the second you join! Since launching in Jan 2021, we've got a fantastic library of analysis, deep dives, and strategies you can implement immediately. All of which you can download right away.
Short answer - no. You have immediate access to 100% of our content library the moment you sign up. That would be totally unfair to existing subscribers - many of whom have been with us for decades.
No. That said, every subscriber has instant access to the OBA model portfolio the moment they sign up.
No. One Bar Ahead® is designed to help investors generate long-term wealth over time. It is not a trading service in pursuit of "hot money" at a moment in time.
Generally speaking, we don't offer sample issues because the portfolio information and research contained in each issue is immediately actionable and it'd be unfair to our paid members to give it out for free. We do, however, have one sample each of the Monday Update and Friday AMA's with portfolio information omitted. Both are available upon request by getting in touch with us here.
