The “Rags to Riches” story is about as American as it gets. From Gilded Age pulp novels to the two Steves – Jobs and Wozniak – and the fabled Apple garage.
A writer and two teachers scraped what they could together to open a cafe that became Starbucks.
Even McDonalds and KFC started in tiny fry shacks.
But what if you flipped it on its head? What if a couple of billionaires highlight a whole lot of “disruption,” but it’s all about the backlash against their “destruction?”
The latest promotion from Porter & Co. leans into this inversion of an old trope with gusto, both economic and political.
It’s a bold pitch. Let’s dig into the details, who is behind it, and what is offered.
Who are the Two Men “Destroying America?”
Porter Stansberry’s video targets two of the wealthiest men in the world.
- Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock and board member – if by proxy – of many others.
- Michael Bloomberg, media scion and a politician of mixed results, to be generous.
Porter’s commentary is highly politically charged, as anyone that watches the video will find.
We won’t go too far into that, though it is an intense focus of the presentation, clearly intended to position Porter and Company against the public policy statements of two billionaires, Larry Fink and Michael Bloomberg.
It’s a stretch to say these two men are anti-capitalist as the presentation does. These two men have made massive profits as capitalists.
Larry Fink is the CEO and co-founder of BlackRock, Inc. The company has been at the forefront of modern capitalism and investment trends, considering the incredible growth that turned it into a roughly $10 trillion behemoth.
And Michael Bloomberg, as much of a milquetoast opportunist as he proved to be during his brief dabble in a recent presidential primary, is a billionaire that sells Bloomberg Terminal access for stock market information at yearly subscriptions that cost more than many Americans make per year.
Anti-capitalists? Not exactly. Duplicitous opportunists? That makes more sense, though it’s safe to say they’d refute many of the claims against them.
But rhetoric and vitriol to assert a contrarian angle aside, there are investments behind the offer.
Porter Stansberry and Company ultimately offer stock information through reports and a subscription service that doesn’t stick to the same kind of firebrand political commentary.
So besides setting the tone with hyperbole, let’s look at Porter and his company, his investment angle, and his offer.
Who is Porter Stansberry?
Porter Stansberry has a long history in the financial newsletter business. Starting with Agora Publishing, he’s been in the industry for over 25 years, most notably as the founding publisher of Stansberry Research and MarketWise, Inc., which went public years ago.
He left his position as MarketWise CEO and Chairman of the Board in early 2022, founding Porter and Company as a much smaller private venture shortly after.
What do Porter and Company Offer?
Porter and Company focus on a handful of reports, but its core business model is built around several subscription services.
Bi-Weekly Investigative Reports
The Big Secret on Wall Street (This Week) is sent every other week and is the primary vehicle for Porter and Company’s analysis and research.

Private Invitations to Porter’s Farm
Porter runs his company from his 100-acre farm and occasionally hosts invitation-only events.
The offer includes an invitation to these events and exclusive digital access to make sure you have access even if attending in person isn’t possible.
Finally, we have the core reports mentioned in the presentation, a series of reports focusing on natural gas investments:
- The Gods of Gas,
- The Next LNG Giant,
- And Energy Royalties
“The Gods of Gas” focuses on a small, independent oil and gas firm founded by three brothers and centered in the Marcellus Shale that is slated to land the first international end-to-end production and distribution deal for American shale gas.
“The Next LNG Giant” focuses on LNG export terminal capacity expansion, and one terminal, in particular, that is fully-permitted and under construction by a small company few have heard of that can capitalize on the potential for an American LNG export boom.
The “Export Royalties” report focuses on a safer strategy to capture consistent royalties payments, pioneered by a legendary energy sector pioneer, T. Boone Pickens.
Here is the Pitch
The going rate for a subscription to The Big Secret on Wall Street (This Week) is $1,425 per year on its own, but as a founding member discount, it is being offered for $1,000 for now.
That works out to $41 per issue, not including the extra reports and coverage mentioned above.
It’s a unique offer from someone that has long since cemented his reputation as a trailblazer and firebrand in investment circles.
With the discount and full refund guarantee, it is also a unique opportunity to join a top-tier boutique firm.
