The Near Future Report Review by Mark
Here is another awesome review article by Mark. I will let him tell all about his experiences in this Near Future Report review…..
Side Note: Check out Monday Movers, one of my favorite swing trading alerts service. Just a couple of stock picks with HUGE potential over the weekend!
Also, don’t miss my YouTube channel where I do reviews of tons of different stock alerts services!
Stock investing is hard (especially for newbies).
One of my relatives gave me $18,000 and asked me to invest it.
Through a series of mistakes, I promptly lost $2,000 — which is why I now read investment newsletters!
My goal is to learn as much as possible by reading as many newsletters as possible, and then tell you which newsletters I think are worthwhile.
I try to give honest, unbiased reviews of every newsletter. I am not paid by these companies, and I invest my own money to purchase subscriptions!

Real Subscriber Review
Here is my experience with, and evaluation of, Near Future Report as a paid subscriber.
Why subscribe to the Near Future Report?
Because technology stocks currently dominate stock market news. The Near Future Report is a tour guide through the maze of this part of the market.
Of course, some readers may feel the newsletter is too limited to a single sector of the stock market, however, it could be argued that since no newsletter can adequately deal with all aspects of the markets, then it’s probably wise to do one thing and do it well.
The Near Future Report attempts to do one thing well by identifying potential world-changing trends in technology. For instance, the September 2020 issue focuses on “quantum computing.”
I was interested to learn about this technology which I had heard of but did not understand. Brown did an excellent job explaining how their recommended company is harnessing the power of complex electronic circuitry and components.
The newsletter explains in detail the history of this interesting company, and why it is now poised to become a dominant player in 6G (not just 5G) technology.
Additionally, the September issue featured stock recommendations for 12 companies that were brand new to me.
I had never heard of their products, nor knew they were poised for explosive growth.
I’m sure not all of them will be successful, but a single issue of Near Future Report contained more actionable investment information than a majority of other newsletters I’ve read.
Who is Jeff Brown?
Jeff Brown is a high-technology executive with 25 years of experience which has made him successful at identifying tech companies that are well-positioned for exponential growth.
Jeff has a wide range of technology industry experience.
From semiconductors to mobility, to broadcasting and video technology, to technology infrastructure, to IT networking, to IT security, to automotive and even consumer electronics… he’s done it all.
He built early stage start-ups and ran organizations generating hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenues. And now, he shares that knowledge and experience with Near Future Report readers.
What is the investment strategy of Near Future Report?
Brownstone Research is committed to bleeding-edge technology.
The Near Future Report tries to leverage Jeff Brown’s technology and investing expertise to help everyday investors profit from today’s best technology stocks.
Here’s what Brown says about his newsletter — “We identify technology trends that are right around the corner. And we profit from these trends by investing in stable, ‘sleep well at night’ large-capitalization technology stocks that are solidly in growth mode.”
Jeff Brown believes these large-cap companies are safer, buy-and-hold recommendations.
He recommends investors don’t make “big bets” on any one recommendation.
The hope is that Brown recommends companies enabling technological advances happening right now to get investors into high-growth stocks that are often misunderstood by the market in advance of big moves in the stock price.
Near Future Report looks for major market growth in 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, precision medicine, and other bleeding-edge technologies.
Jeff Brown encourages investors to use a limit order when placing trades (but currently with no stop loss due to market volatility).
Therefore, Brown urges his readers to establish rational position sizing — not to go “all-in” on any one investment. The goal is to build a portfolio of companies poised for success.

- AI Revolution — currently holding stocks in five companies working on emerging breakthroughs in artificial intelligence. Three of these companies are household names and the price per share is high. Investors need significant capital to invest in those companies. However, the other two companies are reasonable, and intriguing new players in artificial intelligence. As of October 2020, all five stocks in this portfolio have positive gains with a cumulative return of +548.40%.
- Precision Medicine — currently holding stocks in four companies focused on emerging approaches to treat and prevent disease by taking into account individual variables in genes, environment, and lifestyles.

The Cloud generally refers to data centers available to many users over the Internet. Three of the six companies are well known to the public. All six of these companies require at least $169.61 per share to begin investing (so they are not “penny” stocks for sure)!

Typically, investment newsletter portfolios have very mixed results. I have reviewed dozens of newsletters, and I’m not aware of any portfolio that is performing better than Near Future Report.
In addition to the performance of the Near Future Report portfolio, there are other things to like about the newsletter.
