As head of one of America’s largest independent financial research firms, Mr. Stansberry’s work back in 2008 led him to a bold, but worrisome, conclusion:
He predicted that the world’s largest mortgage bankers–Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which at the time were responsible for nearly 50% of all the mortgages in America–would soon go bankrupt.
In fact, in June of 2008, while their stock prices were still trading at well over $20 per share, Stansberry published a report to his customers titled: “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Are Going to Zero.”
Inside this report, Stansberry explained:
“For those of you who don’t work in the financial industry, it might be hard for you to immediately grasp what’s so dangerous about the extreme amount of leverage employed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Let me explain exactly what Fannie and Freddie do and why they’re in so much jeopardy…”
We all know what happened next.
Both agencies went bust—and if not for a bailout from the Federal Government, both would have declared bankruptcy.
Barron’s – America’s second biggest financial newspaper – even wrote a story about Mr. Stansberry’s accurate prediction, and called it “remarkably prescient”
Over the years, Mr. Stansberry has made a name for himself by accurately predicting the biggest and most important collapses in America. A few others he’s accurately identified well in advance include: General Motors, General Growth Property (America’s biggest mall owner), D.R. Horton (a homebuilder), and Gannett newspapers, to name just a few.
Well, now Mr. Stansberry has issued another fascinating warning, about a new and looming bankruptcy.
As Mr. Stansberry writes:
“No one believed me years ago when I said the world’s largest mortgage bankers would soon go bankrupt.
And no one believed me when I said GM would fall apart… or that the same would happen to General Growth Properties.
But that’s exactly what happened.”
And Mr. Stansberry isn’t the only one to take notice. Over the past year and a half, three super-successful billionaires have gone on record with warnings that we are now living in perilous financial times. Most recently, billionaire financier George Soros went on record with perhaps the strongest warning yet. He sees a crisis brewing in global markets that could send shockwaves around the world. At a January international economic forum he said,
“When I look at the financial markets there is a serious challenge which reminds me of the crisis we had in 2008.”
And, that brings us to today…
Stansberry says the next big bankruptcy in America will be even bigger than those he’s identified in the past. In fact, he says this looming bankruptcy will threaten your way of life, whether you own any investments related to it or not.
This collapse, says Stansberry, will change everything about our normal way of life: where you vacation… where you send your kids or grandkids to school… how and where you shop… the way you protect your family and home.
