A Potential Christmas Present Arrives in our lap Early, From the Inventor of Crowdfunding and Winner of Incubator of The Year in 2003.

This is probably one of the most speculative ideas we have ever come across. It’s also the first time we’ve added a Company to the Watch List under a penny. Imagine that.

And – from what we know at this point – while the chances of success seem against all odds and common business logic, if the CEO Greg Halpern can do what he thinks he can do, this might indeed be the biggest winner we have ever had, and we’ve had a lot.

We feel we were just given gift from Greg (how big only time will tell) and so we’re re-gifting to you – our readers and friends – feel free to re-gift, we have just ten days to Christmas. So break out the Champagne glasses and have one on us, aight.

This is a short report, heads up. There are a lot of moving parts that will take time to put down on paper, so we can “picture perfect, paint the perfect picture.”

Greg is the same CEO who gave us our biggest winner to date, Circle Group Holdings back in 2003, which went up 60-fold and made headlines, back when 60-fold gains were a big event. So, it would be quite the impressive feat, if the same guy who gave us our biggest winner ever, gives us our next biggest winner ever.

Note, we started investing in 1973 as a high school student on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange so ‘ever’ is a long, long time.

If he pulls it off, it would be like Greg and Roland – two of America’s most wanted from Chicago, in the same place, at the same time, like Tupac and Snoop Dog.

Since 60-fold can go in one eye and out the other – let’s dollarize what really happened. (Our firm – as they were a client – made over $1 million working with the Circle Group, so it was real world dollarized.)

Investors in Circle Group Holdings when we added it to the Watch List in 2003 could have turned:

$1,000 into $60,000
$5,000 into $300,000
$10,000 into $600,000
$25,000 into $1,500,00

At one point Greg’s stake was worth $112 million.

There’s a name for this type of investment thesis. It’s called ‘F-me Insurance.’

Meaning in the slight chance it does work, we had better own some, otherwise if we heard about it and decided to pass – we’ll end up crawling under the sheets and forever be crying “f-me, f-me, f-me!” LOL – but for real.

If that’s ever happened to you, you understand the thesis. We told many friends who passed on Circle Group when Greg first called us on it at $0.15, who we later heard saying “F-me,” when it first crossed $1.00 on its way to $2.00, on its way to $4.00, on its way to $8.00.

A lot of early Bitcoin investors who bought Bitcoin at $13.30 in 2013 and sold later in the year at $130, are very familiar with F-me insurance!

We made a lot of friends with Circle Group, made a few investors rich (those who held for the peak gain, and sold before it tumbled) and Greg made a lot of headlines, being CEO of Chicago’s number one performing public company that year.

According to Bloomberg, Circle Group lead the Bloomberg Illinois Index for 2003 closing at $2.00, up 6,844%. It then quadrupled the following year to $8.50. You can’t make this sh*t up.

It’s a long story you can read here later.

Circle Group was a technology incubator. Finding companies and running incubators with far-flung technologies is in our opinion Greg’s sweet spot. When we came across Circle Group, they were incubating an E-commerce company, a Lidar technology company and a zero-calorie fat substitute technology company called Z-Trim. All under one roof.

The company was calling itself a ‘VC firm,’ but since we had great success adding incubators CMGI to the Watch List at $1.85 (it went to $163) and Rare Medium at $4.50 (it went to $94) we suggested they call themselves an ‘Incubator.’ They didn’t, but we did, and the rest was history!

We added it to the Watch List with a short missive (like this short missive) at $0.15. We later did a ‘concept’ report at $0.47, and more reports after it crossed $1.00 where some epic battles with the short sellers began.

Greg, who won a Bronze and Silver Medal in the Jr Olympics in the late 70’s wins most battles he’s presented with. He won that one.

While it wasn’t called Crowd Funding back then, via CGI Capital Greg raised $23 million starting in 1998 directly from the public, which prior to was unheard of – so he could be said to be the ‘inventor’ of crowdfunding. It was an amazing feat for the time. The launch was aired on CNN News.


After thanking him, we lost touch for a decade – but kept in contact. We noted he was involved in a social media network which aligned with every major celebrity you could imagine, but Facebook was picking up competitors, taking a bite and then tossing them aside like bad candy.

He was next involved in an audio compression company called Max Sound. Since we had a great experience in SLS Loudspeakers which went up $158 million in value and 20-fold, we were interested.

So, we flew to Los Angeles and were surprised (sort of surprised) to see he had partnered with our good friend Russ Regan who ran 20th Century Records and was the VP of A&R at Motown Records. Russ discovered Elton John, Barry White, Neil Diamond and even coined the name ‘The Beach Boys’ (for real) – Russ knew everyone.

But the technology never gained the traction it deserved (and still deserves). It’s HD Audio – we listened to the before and after’s and it’s deeper, wider, with an incredible sound experience. Plus, it compressed into in a smaller file – with the file size being of paramount importance.

The Max Sound technology is still here today as is the Company (MAXD). Its advisory board is second to none and the Company has in fact become Greg’s new vehicle, to provide Incubation services.

Which brings us to the present day.

Greg called from California last week. “Hey Roland, how are ya buddy.” I know that phrase meant something was afoot. He doesn’t call to ask if I’m still a Chicago Bears or Cubs fan, now that we’re in Florida.

Greg is all business. We got excited.

He’s never sounded more enthusiastic about his latest discovery. Not one to mince words, he said “We could do 10X what Circle Group did for you and your subscribers – do you want to be involved.” Well of course if you put it that way, was our response. So, we are involved. Forces joined for good, not evil.

An 8K Comes out on his new Project Yesterday.

Somehow with his connections, he came across an algorithmic technology platform, that when cross referenced with traditional mapping technologies, that they feel can identify the presence of underground metals (precious and other) with unparalleled accuracy. That’s part I.

Part II is, again due to his connections, is that the company (Max Sound) just signed an agreement with property or rights owners in Mexico, to delineate and monetize their properties.

Note this is ‘one’ deal. Greg’s believes the technology can be used on the property of any company which has mineral rights below the ground, or ‘InGround’ as he likes to call it.

Below is the 8K filed with the SEC yesterday, giving some details of their upcoming project.

Greg calls the agreement his biggest deal ever. In an interview he stated the technology can identify minerals valued in the trillions.

The whole point of the 8K, in our opinion is to answer the question “Great you have a new technology, but is anyone going to use it?”

Well, here it is. A partnership agreement with a company with two mineral rights properties, is going to use the technology. Publicly announced and filed with the SEC. So, this isn’t a rumor, it’s for real – it’s showtime folks.

Will the technology work as its designed to? We can’t know for sure. But what we do-know-for-sure is that if it does work on the Mexican project, speculators will likely be amply rewarded, for taking the risk getting involved before it’s fully proven rather than after.

If the technology is proven to work, we can expect a domino effect of interested companies knocking on their door. This is as they say, where the rubber meets the road.

PRESS RELEASE: Max Sound Corporation Announces Signed Revolutionary Exclusive Agreement in The Stage One Launch of Its InGroundAssets™ Program Paving a Clear Potential Path That Is Expected to Project a 15-Figure Future

If this works..oh boy. They did it again.

The properties have undergone a traditional reporting via world renowned experts SGS Canada Inc. who has completed an extensive NI 43-101 Technical Report of the geological setting and mineralization of the land that two mines are located and has determined the area is abundant with high value mineral deposits including iron, copper, lithium and gold among many others.

Greg says this is just the start. When you read the 8K, note this isn’t a one-time technology licensing agreement, this is a partnership.


December 13, 2021, Max Sound Enters Partnership Agreement With ‘InGround Assets.’

Here is the SGS 43-101.

SGS is recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 89,000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world. SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. SGS is recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity.

NI 43-101 Technical Reports: What They Are, and What They’re Not





As we said, this is a work in process. We’re just now digging deep. We need to learn more about the technology and we need to learn more about the initial partner.

As we’re not accustomed to penny stock math, with so many digits to the right of the decimal, here’s a ‘table’ to help everyone, including us.

We’re not here to seeking tomake 20% or even 100%. For a speculation like this is either a let it ride moon-shot, or zero. F-me insurance you know.

So, here’s the table STARTING at five-fold.


$0.001 x 5-fold = $0.005
$0.001 x 10-fold = $0.01
$0.001 x 25-fold = $0.025
$0.001 x 50-fold = $0.05
$0.001 x 60-fold = $0.06 (like Circle Group)
$0.001 x 100-fold = $0.10


$10 = 10,000 shares
$100 = 100,000 shares, you’re a playa, doing ‘block’ trades!
$1,000 = 1 million shares, you’re an institution.
$5,000 = 5 million shares.
$10,000 = 10 million shares, you’re Warren Buffett Jr.

We’ll stop there..before someone hurts themselves, trying to be the next Elon Musk lol.


$1,000 5-fold = $5,000 next round for the whole bar is on me money!
$1,000 10-fold = $10,000 vacay money.
$1,000 25-fold = $25,000 now you’re worried about banking a gain.
$1,000 50-fold = $50,000
$1,000 60-fold = $60,000
$1,000 100-fold = $100,000

*Using $1,000 as example. Again, let’s not get crazy..

BTW F-me insurance goes for gifting too! Right now (or in the next 10 days), someone has the chance to give a friend or relative a $100 bottle of perfume – or 100,000 shares of MAXD. Hmm.

Last February, it’s worth noting, Max spiked (see chart above) to just a hair under $0.02. We didn’t look into circumstances because charts don’t have memories. They don’t they don’t know where they came from, and they don’t know where they’re going.

Importantly we cannot venture to guess where speculators who want to play enter, or more importantly where to exit.

We can only report on what the Company reports and try to make some sense of it. Other than that, we’re all on our own. As a client, we have 50 million shares, so the confusion is magnified for us. Too many commas to the left and too many digits to the right.

With 6 billion shares out, we feel highly confident we won’t see $1.00 (unless they get into NFT’s or the Metaverse lol) in our lifetime. But we still can dream of owning a Tiki-Hut bar in Islamorada, or somewhere in the Keys, if it did.

In any event, this should provide for some fun reading during 2022.

One final, final. Read this article about ‘trading’ versus ‘long-term speculative’ holding.

Greatly written by Harris Kupperman, the CEO of Mongolian Growth Group (symbol: MNGGF) last December.

That’s all part of the game when I look for multi-baggers. What’s the alternative? Buying and selling every little wiggle on the chart? That’s ludicrous. The money isn’t made guessing the next 5% anyway. It’s in finding multi-baggers and then enjoying life. I’m writing to you from a cliff-side villa above a deserted beach in Costa Rica. I can do that because I know what I own—therefore, I can step away and let it happen.

Most Recent 10Q

(SEC filings like 10Q’s should always be read. They’re like a reading manual for an electronic product, so you don’t a shock installing it.)

As of November 22, 2021, the registrant had 6,882,102,823 shares, of common stock issued and outstanding. At $0.001 that places a value on the incubator at $6.8 million. 6.8 billion shares sound like a lot, but when you break it down, it’s just $6.8 million – far less many recent revenue less IPO’s that are valued in the billions.

Ditto with our 50 million share retainer of restricted stock. Sounds like a lot, but it’s only $50,000 which if you divide by a year works out to about $4,000 a month – big whoop, however with major F-me insurance potential.

One final note about equity retainers. We’re not ‘given’ equity. We are buying it – with the distinction that instead of paying with cash, we are paying with ongoing coverage services. It puts us on the same page as all shareholders. Win big, we all win big. Lose big, we all lose big.

We’ll do an interview later with Greg, so you can hear his opinion of reverse splits firsthand. In short, nope, not ever.

A 10-fold increase with the current amount of shares outstanding would equate to $68 million and our stake $500,000.

MAXD: Although the company sees these huge values of existing minerals, it intends to not declare any value of these assets to the Company’s balance sheet until such time that the first cash receipts are received and appear in MAXD’s bank accounts.
