I am a successful proprietary investor and owner of a popular financial analysis and commentary blog, BoomBustBlog.com. I have recently started charging for my very well respected research and have actually found the demand pleasantly surprising. I am looking for individuals who would be interested in selling subscriptions to the site on a commission basis. There is definitely opportunity for the right individual(s). Within a 50 days of opening the "pay for" service, a top wall street bank signed up their strategic finance group, and roughly 150 professionals, hedge funds and individual/full time subscribers signed up as well - without any advertising or marketing.

My performance is unparalleled among the big banks, brokerages and hedge funds, which is probably what makes the research attractive, particularly considering the price charged. In the trailing 17 month period, the blog's published research model returned over 80% while the broker recommendations, hedge fund indices, and all broad market indices were deeply negative. All research is published via the web, with the average report being about 20 pages. These reports called the demise of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, the fall of MBIA, Ambac, Countrywide, GGP, and a whole host of other companies - months before they actually fell, while the most brokerages analysts still had buy calls on them.

 Below are links that compare the research performance to big banks/brokerages, hedge funds, and market averages. Anyone who is interested can email/PM from this site or prefereably from my blog.
