I am debating starting a paid subscription service. Below I briefly describe my ideas. After reading the details, I would greatly appreciate it if you would fill out the survey to the left.
The subscription service would focus on biotech companies and mainly micro-, small-, and mid-cap stocks. There would be four types of reports that subscribers would receive.
1. Company reports: These would generally be 3-4 pages and focus on specific companies. Topics could include a discussion of upcoming data, analyzing released data, looking at the pipeline, examining the business play, and/or detailing market opportunities. These would be most similar to the reports I current write. My plan would be to provide at least 24 of these a year.
2. Issue reports: These again would be 3-4 pages long but instead of focusing on specific topic. For instance, a report might examine the importance of JAK inhibition or the importance of targeted cancer treatments. In addition, there would be some reports that provide details to some basic research going on as a way to figure out what is coming next. My plan would be to provide at least 12 of these a year.
3. Trading reports: These would be shorter but provide a specific trading idea. Personally, I do not want this service to provide many trading ideas as I have no idea as to your risk acceptance or trading strategies. As such, I want the service to arm you with the information you would need to improve your trading/investing strategies. That being said, when I do see a compelling investment opportunity, I would write a trading report. I do not know how many of these would be written because it depends on the number of opportunities that I find.
4. Flash reports: These would be short reports that provide a quick take on either new data or information about a specific company. My plan would be to write at least 12 of these a year.
I enjoying writing on stocks and investigating the technologies and companies. That being said, it can be a time consuming process and getting paid would both compensate me for my effort but also give me more flexibility and ability to do this work. So please take the time to answer the questions and I greatly appreciate it.
