In each issue of the Empire Investment Report, Whitney Tilson and his team share their top investment recommendations, ideas, predictions, and warnings.

By applying the lessons they’ve learned from decades of studying legendary value investors like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, they aim to help individual investors generate market-beating returns while minimizing risk.

The Empire Investment Report focuses on recommending and building a model portfolio of small- or mid-cap stocks, many of which you’ve likely never heard of before.

Since its launch in 2019, the Empire Investment Report has generated massive returns for its subscribers, including:

  • 268% in 13 months on gun maker Smith & Wesson (245% annualized)
  • 215% in 13 months on space tourism company Virgin Galactic (193% annualized)
  • 156% in 10 months on casino stock Penn National Gaming (189% annualized)
  • 49% in four months on footwear maker Crocs (153% annualized)
  • 88% in eight months on Mexican airline Volaris (142% annualized)
  • 68% in eight months on online travel company Tripadvisor (105% annualized)
  • 50% in seven months on aircraft lessor AerCap (88% annualized)
  • And more…

Each month, Whitney applies the same strategy he used to begin with $1 million in 1999 and build a hedge fund with $200 million in peak assets, nearly tripling his investors’ money in his first decade.
