Dear Subscriber,

Hello, I’m Jay Livingston, publisher here at Weiss Ratings.

If you’re interested in collecting about 1,000 bucks for your next weekend getaway — and nearly every weekend, starting THIS Friday …

Then pay close attention, because I think you’re going to like what you’re about to discover.

Over the next few minutes, I’m going to show you a completely NEW way to make money from the market.

We call it the “Weekend Windfall” anomaly.

Because once you learn to spot it, you can LEGALLY collect about $1,000 nearly every Friday — instantly — for your special weekend!

You want to head out on a nice golf outing?

Maybe you want to take a luxury spa weekend at the beach. Or perhaps you just want to tuck away an extra $1,000 in your IRA.

Then all you have to do is log on to your online brokerage account.

Click a few buttons.

And collect your windfall.

While weekly payouts can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars …

The goal is to get payouts averaging around $1,000 per week. Or, if you wish, multiples of $1,000.

And get this: Once you know the secret I’ll show you today, you’ll see how to direct these payouts into your account — with a nearly 100% success rate.

That means you could add an extra $50,000 or so your account over the next 12 months alone.

And if you invest more, you could make $100,000, even $200,000 extra per year.

But no matter how much you invest, if you had followed us over a recent period of three-plus years, you could have earned an average annual return of 151.5%.

That’s nearly 100 times more than you can get in a 6-month CD!

Again, with a nearly 100% win rate! And you never have to pay it back.

I know this may sound hard to believe.

So, not long ago, I began assembling a group of beta testers from around our headquarters here in Palm Beach Gardens.

We looked for investors with a wide range of experience — from beginner to more advanced.

The goal: To have them try this new strategy to see if they could collect $1,000 their first time out.

Keep in mind: NONE of our beta testers had ever tried this before.

So, will they be able to pocket the cash in less than 30 seconds each?

And how could YOU collect your first windfall in time for your NEXT weekend getaway.

That’s exactly what you’ll discover in today’s presentation.

Like Your Own Personal ATM — Paying Out
Hundreds or Thousands Every Friday

Once you know the secret to exploiting this anomaly, it’s like collecting money from your own personal ATM machine.

Except, instead of withdrawing funds from your bank account, you’re effectively pulling money out of Wall Street’s computerized brokerage system.

This is cash that would otherwise go to some big Wall Street firm or plugged-in hedge fund.

But it could just as easily be redirected into your account nearly every Friday morning.

And don’t worry —it’s perfectly legal, easy and fast.

But, if you had followed our weekend windfall strategy for three-plus years, you could have pulled down the instant cash 100% of the time.

And 99.7% of the time, you could have kept every cent — with no further obligation!

No wonder our Weiss Ratings team has spent many months researching this opportunity!

After $3.2 Million In Research Costs …
Our Biggest Income Breakthrough EVER

Weiss Ratings, as you may know, is the world’s leading provider of independent investment ratings.

Unlike Moody’s, Standard and Poor’s and Fitch, Weiss never accepts any compensation whatsoever from the companies it rates — whether directly or indirectly.

Weiss is 100% independent with no conflicts of interest.

The Wall Street Journal reported that investors following the Weiss Stock Ratings could have made more money than investors who followed every other research firm they reviewed.

And it’s also the main reason, why, in another financial sector, Weiss Ratings beat its closest competitor by three to one in accuracy, according to the GAO, the auditing arm of the U.S. Congress.

And now, our Weiss Rating team has developed a money-making strategy that could change the way you think about money forever.

We’ve sunk more than $3.2 million into data costs alone.

We’ve amassed a database of case studies totaling 1.94 billion data points.

And we’ve run more than 70,237 computer-processing hours of beta testing!

The result:

A 99.7% effective method for pocketing these weekend windfalls almost EVERY Friday from now on.

So how does this work, and can you really do it too, starting THIS Friday?

To show you how easy this can be, let’s meet our first beta-tester.

Rachel A. works here at our headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens. Other than buying mutual funds for her 401(k), she has little investing experience.

Nor had Rachel heard of this opportunity before I introduced it to her earlier this week.

So, could she pull down about $1,000 on her very first time out? Let’s take a look now.

Meet Weekend Windfall Beta Tester #1: Rachel A.

Jay: Hey there! Welcome! You ready to make some money?

Rachel: Hey! Yeah, I'm a little nervous, but let's do it.

Jay: Okay, no need to be nervous. You're about to discover just how easy this can be, all right? So just to be clear for our viewer, can you just tell us a bit about your investing experience?

Rachel: That will be easy. Not much! This is my first time doing anything like this.

Jay: Okay, that's actually perfect. So you know we're about to pull some cash from the market instantly, right? But you don't know how we're going to do it, correct?

Rachel: Correct, all I know is what you told me yesterday — that on this first trial, we're going to be using your brokerage account and we're only going to be doing a small amount, as a kind of trial.

Jay: Yes, that takes a little of the pressure off. But do remember, this is a conservative strategy to begin with.

Rachel: Yeah, I get that.

Jay: Now I have my account open. But I haven't done anything yet. So, what I'm gonna ask you to do in a second is collect your weekend windfall live on camera right now. Are you ready?

Rachel: Let's do it.

Jay: Okay, let's give it a try. I'm gonna start the timer, and we're gonna see if we can do this in under 30 seconds, okay?

Rachel: Okay.

Jay: You can drive … and hit that button until it reads "two" there.

Rachel: All right.

Jay: Perfect. Go ahead and hit the green button there. What do you see there?

Rachel: Four hundred and eighty-nine dollars! $489.

Jay: That's right, yep. If you’re VERY conservative in how — or how much — you invest, naturally you could wind up with a lot less than $1,000 per week. The best part — if that cash didn't go into my account, it was destined for the coffers of some Wall Street brokerage firm anyway. So you just legally intercepted your first weekend windfall. Congrats!

Rachel: So, is this money in your account now?

Jay: Yeah, it's in there right now. There's a small chance this trade won't be successful. I won't know for sure until about a month from now. But I promised you I'd give you the money, and here it is. Have a great weekend!

Rachel: Thanks, Jay, I'll be booking that spa weekend now!

Get Started with an Online Brokerage Account plus
About 30 Seconds Each Friday Morning to Collect
Your Money for the Weekends

I’m assuming you know more about investing than Rachel does.

But my point is: You don’t have to jump through hoops to do this. All you need is a brokerage account that’s set up to collect these windfalls.

And if you’ve bought ETFs or stocks online, then it should be very easy, first time out.

In fact, in some ways, it’s a MORE conservative strategy than buying stocks, and I’ll explain why in a moment.

The key now is that, once you’re up and running, collecting these instant-cash payouts can be super easy.

Whether you’re an experienced trader looking to add some high-odds income to the mix, or simply a conservative long-term investor …

You can start pulling down an extra $500, $1,000 or even more nearly every week without doing anything that’s riskier than buying solid, blue chip stocks.

If you have a few minutes to spare, you can pull cash out of the market nearly EVERY Friday for years to come.

Again, redirecting these Weekend Windfalls into YOUR account could not be simpler. But what about more experienced investors?

Let’s take a look at our second case study for the answer …

Meet Weekend Windfall Beta Tester #2: Jeff R.

Jay: Thank you for being a guinea pig today for us. But I think you're going to like what we're about to try here.

Jeff: I'm a very skeptical person by nature. So you're gonna have to sell me on this.

Jay: I know, I know. Can you tell our audience what your position here at Weiss.

Jeff: I'm the CFO, the Chief Financial Officer. So I'm responsible for all financial matters for the company. And I also am the CSO, the chief skeptical officer.

Jay: Ha-ha. Good, that's what makes you perfect. What kind of investor are you?

Jeff: I would describe myself as moderately experienced. I am very comfortable trading stocks and ETFs online.

Jay: So I've given you what? Ten seconds of coaching? Are you ready to go ahead and see if you can pull down a weekly windfall your first time out?

Jeff: I'm ready to go. Let's do it!

Jay: So we're in your account, and  you're familiar obviously with this interface. It's all set up. Now, where it says 10?

Jeff: Yes.

Jay: Hold on for a second. I'm gonna start the clock. We got 30 seconds to do this.

Jeff: Oh, I didn't realize it was a timed affair.

Jay: Go ahead and hit that until it goes — till you see a "two" there.

Jeff: Okay, now over here, hit that green button.

Jeff: Yes. Okay, I see $1,105.

Jay: Right, and you can probably guess what that is, right?

Jeff: That would be my weekend windfall?

Jay: That's it. That's the cash.

Jeff: So the money's in my account. Can I spend it right away?

Jay: Yes, you actually can spend it right away. But we don't recommend doing that. It's more prudent to leave the money in the account for a little while, because there's one more part of this trade that we haven't talked about yet. But basically, yes, the money is in your account. And it's yours to keep.

There’s Never Been an Easier Way to Make All the
Income You Need — WHEN You Need It.

I must admit. I was a skeptic, too. If it’s that easy, I wondered, how come everybody doesn’t do it?

The answer is simple: Wall Street doesn’t want you to do it.

In fact, your broker isn’t supposed to tell you about it.

His firm is probably making a lot of money from a similar strategy all the time, and they don’t want competition from average investors like us.

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Merrill Lynch and almost every major firm on Wall Street is doing it. And they’re making billions of dollars.

So how do they book all these billions? And how can you intercept some of this money legally, nearly every Friday before noon?

It comes back to the anomaly and the most powerful income secret we’ve discovered in our 48-year history.

So let’s take a closer look now …

What Exactly IS the
Weekend Windfall Anomaly?

The anomaly occurs in only ONE corner of the market. I’m talking about the market for stock options.

I know what you might be thinking: Options are risky!

And you’d be right — if you’re talking about BUYING options. In fact, according to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, on average, options buyers lose 82% of the time.

But instead, we take the OTHER side of the transaction. Instead of buying options, we SELL options.

That simple step alone gives us the opportunity for winning odds of 82% … and then some.

To see how this works, let’s give it a whirl with our third Beta tester, Merle B.

Meet Weekend Windfall Beta Tester #3: Merle B.

Jay: Glad you could join us here, Merle. Tell us what is your main investment goal?

Merle: I have been just doing some real-estate investing and I've done things in the past with stocks but not made much money on it. What I need is some more income. I've been getting into CDs, but what I'm getting there is ridiculous.

Jay: Low single digits.

Merle: Yeah. I own some stocks paying pretty good dividends, but “pretty good” is still crappy these days and not nearly enough to hit my needs.

Jay: Do you have any options experience at all?

Merle: The only time I've messed with options was buying puts and calls, and as I recall, I lost money almost every time. It was ugly enough I decided not to do it. Not for me anymore.

Jay: That is the entire idea behind the weekend windfalls. You lost money over 80% of the time, right? When you were BUYING!

Merle: At least.

Jay: So think about the other side of the trade — the guy that sold you those options. What do you think happened to the money that you gave him?

Merle: Somebody's making money, and it wasn't me.

Jay: So in this case, instead of THEM selling the put options and getting that cash, you're about to do the exact same thing. You're gonna sell a put option, and the cash is gonna hit your account instantly.

Merle: Hallelujah!

Jay: Everybody has seen how much coaching you've received, and now we'll let you drive. See that number right there?

Merle: Yeah.

Jay: Go ahead and just pick however many put options you want to sell.

Merle: Done.

Jay: That's kind of a lot. Are you okay with that?

Merle: I can afford it. Let's go.

Jay: Hit the green button and let's see.

Merle: $1,950!

Jay: Do you know what that is?

Merle: Wow! It says I just got a $1,950 credit in my account. Did I do something wrong?

Jay: You mean because you almost doubled the $1,000?

Merle: Yeah, because this is the first time I made money on that.

Jay: I would say you did something right, actually. But the thing is, you can make as much or as little as you want. That's actually a neat part of this strategy.  If you need more income, there's a way to do it: You sell more puts.

And remember: It's a 99.7% success rate here. So imagine doing this every Friday morning and how much money you could make over a typical year.

Merle: I love this, but all I have is a standard brokerage account. Is that gonna be enough?

Jay: We recommend that people have margin to do this, so you don't have to use your own cash in your account and tie all that up.

Merle: Actually, this looks like a pretty conservative strategy. I didn't realize I can make instant money like this. This is gonna pay for my retirement.

Jay: And it's less risky than even investing in a regular stock, believe it or not. It's actually safer in a lot of ways.

Three HUGE Advantages You Get When
You Collect These Weekend Windfalls

So you’ve seen three trades.

One with Rachel, who’s a beginner and collected $489.

Next with Jeff, who has some experience and collected $1,105 …

And the last one with Merle, who has the most experience among the three and collected nearly $2,000.

So why does the Weekend Windfall strategy work so well for investors like these?

It’s because it gives you THREE advantages right off the bat.

Advantage #1: The first advantage is that you’re not taking the side of the gambler. You’re taking the side of the HOUSE. So right off the bat, instead of four-to-one odds against you, you have four-to-one odds in your favor.

Advantage #2: The second thing in your favor is that selling puts on a stock is like selling a special kind of insurance — “crash insurance.” And guess what! Wall Street grossly overcharges for that crash insurance day after day. That’s the anomaly in the market!

Because of this anomaly, other investors are paying way too much for that crash insurance.

But you’re not buying; you’re selling. So you collect “too much” money, which is a good problem to have, right? It means you’re going to make MORE money on each trade.

Advantage #3 (the biggest of all): The third advantage —is our secret weapon, the Weiss Stock Ratings.

Here’s the key: When you sell a put option on a stock, you make money if the stock goes up. You make money if it drifts sideways. And you can even make money if it goes down moderately.

So you want to always sell puts on the highest-quality stocks you can find.

And that’s why our strategy uses the Weiss Stock Ratings, which have an unbeatable track record in picking the highest-quality stocks.

Result: Thanks to the Weiss Ratings, you can improve your odds of winning from 82% to 99.7%. That means you reduce the odds of losing from 18% to 0.3% or by 54 times.

Collecting Instant Cash … In Three Simple Steps

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Every Thursday evening, after the markets close, we use the power of our $3-million Weiss Ratings database to scan more than 11,000 stocks and to help pick THE strongest stock on the market.

Step 2: We pinpoint the one best put option to sell on that stock in order to collect the biggest Weekend Windfall we can.

Step 3: We monitor the option until it expires worthless about 30 days later.

Not bad, right? What’s the downside?

In a tiny percentage of cases, the option does not expire worthless. When that happens, we buy 100 shares of the underlying stock for each option sold.

A problem? No!

Keep in mind, this is a stock we rated as one of the BEST out of 11,000 on the market.

So, what’s the consequence? You get to own shares of a stock we absolutely love!

We’re talking about quality, dividend-paying blue chips poised to generate income for months or years to come. And in some cases, we’ll see fat capital gains too.

“One of the Greatest Strategies in Existence”

That’s why a report on says that selling puts “could be a way to increase your income by hundreds or even thousands of dollars every month.”

And according to a report on CNBC: “It can be a good strategy in volatile, choppy markets.”

Barron’s says that it’s… “One of the greatest strategies in existence.”

Barron’s also once published this big headline: “Weiss is the leader in identifying vulnerable companies.”

In other words, we know how to avoid companies that get into trouble and go down. And THAT’s key to boosting your odds of winning from 82% to 99.7%.

Even Warren Buffett takes advantage of a strategy like this. He’s collected billions of dollars with it.

Now, you can start collecting your own Weekend Windfalls nearly every Friday morning!

How YOU Can Start Pocketing Weekend
Windfalls as Soon as Next Friday …

I have some big, big news.

Today, we’re launching a brand-new trading service dedicated to this unique strategy.

We’re calling it, simply: Weekend Windfalls.

This unusual income service delivers weekend windfalls to you nearly EVERY Friday morning — on a silver platter!

Each issue contains all the information you need to collect the same kind of payouts that our Beta testers collected today.

For example, let’s go back to Friday, September 6, 2019. For most investors, it was just another day in the markets, if there is such a thing.

Our Weiss Ratings model pinpointed Amgen, a big pharma rock star bursting with cash.

As usual, there was an anomaly in the pricing of Amgen put options. And again, that just means the puts were grossly overpriced.

So we saw a very tidy $1,380 Windfall on Amgen, which we pocketed and never had to pay back.

Imagine what it would be like to pull down an extra $1,380 this coming Friday.

And then doing something similar next Friday, the Friday after that, and on and on.

Because this is just the beginning of what our Weekend Windfall system has shown us. Here are a few more examples:

Okay, you ready to be really blown away?

That list only includes 11 trades!

And with those trades, you could have collected a total of $13,168!

The total amount of time it would have taken you to enter the orders for these trades?

Less than six minutes combined.

Our testing period goes back over three years.

And it includes well over 150 Weekend Windfalls … all capable of delivering hundreds — and sometimes thousands — of dollars instantly.

Had you followed along you could have collected over $150,000 in extra income or, if you had invested more, $300,000, even $600,000.

But what I love most is the consistency: You don’t have to buy and hope you eventually get paid. Instead, you get paid instantly up front. 100% of the time.

That makes Weekend Windfalls the most conservative trading service we have EVER launched.

And that makes Weiss Ratings veteran Mike Larson the ideal person to spearhead this new project.

Meet Mike Larson — America’s #1 “Safe Money”
Expert and Leader of Our Biggest Income
Breakthrough in FOUR Decades

In terms of safety-minded investors, Mike truly stands alone.

Throughout my many years in finance, I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the best investment minds in America: People like our own founder and president, Dr. Martin Weiss. Or my longtime colleagues and friends, Sean Brodrick and Jon Markman.

But I’ve also had the pleasure of working alongside Quantum cofounder Jim Rogers … Goldman Sachs alumnus Dr. David Eifrig … and many others.

The list also includes several mega-millionaire floor traders on the New York Stock Exchange, New York Mercantile Exchange, and Chicago Board of Options Exchange.

But when it comes to safe-money investing, I’ve never met anyone better than Mike Larson.

Mike is a former analyst with and researcher at Bloomberg.

And for nearly a decade, he’s been the editor of our Safe Money Report, carrying on a tradition of safety that the Weiss Family began back in 1928, more than 90 years ago.

Mike appears frequently on CNBC, CNN, Fox Business News and Bloomberg TV. Or perhaps you’ve seen his financial analysis in the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Associated Press, Reuters, and CNNMoney.

If so, you probably know: Mike HATES taking unreasonable risks. And he hates losing money in any amount.

What he LOVES is high income with the lowest possible risk.

That makes Mike the ideal person to head our brand-new service: Weekend Windfalls.

When it comes to income generation, nothing else can compare. No other strategy gives you the combined protection of Weiss Ratings AND Mike Larson.

Why Wait Around for Dividends When You Can
Collect Your Cash Instantly Every Week?

Take Boeing, for example.

Had you bought $10,000 in stock on June 24, 2019, you would have qualified for the September 2019 dividend pay date.

Your dividend payment would have amounted to a measly $55 — enough to take your spouse out to dinner at an Outback Steakhouse. (As long as you didn’t order drinks.)

But as I showed a moment ago, we collected $1,008 on Boeing from a single Weekend Windfall without buying a single share of Boeing.

To make that same $1,008 from Boeing dividends, you would have needed to invest more than $180,000 to buy Boeing shares. Either that, or you would have had to wait for many years.

I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer the instant cash without tying up all that capital in stock. and without the long wait.

And with Weekend Windfalls, that’s what you’ll have the chance to collect. nearly every single Friday morning.

How to Add $50,000 (or Much More)
to Your Nest Egg This Year …

Based on our Weiss Ratings model tests, you could have already pocketed an average of about $1,000 almost every week for three years.

That comes out to an $50,000 per year, or multiples of $50,000. And that is the power of our Weekend Windfalls strategy.

This breakthrough service has ONE primary mission: To hand you weekend cash each Friday in 2020 and beyond.

How exactly could you use this system to make a killing week after week?

Simple. Every week …

You will always go for the most income with the best chance for success.

From there, you can collect a new windfall nearly every Friday morning from now on.

Again, you don’t have to pay this money back. And using our system, you have the opportunity to succeed 99.7% of the time!

But that’s not all.

On special occasions, when Mike sees a unique opportunity to grab an even bigger-than-average windfall, he won’t wait for Friday morning. He’ll send you a quick flash alert to grab the instant cash right away.

And those flash alerts alone could add another $10,000, $20,000 or even more to your yearly income.

This Has Changed Peoples Lives.
It Can Do the Same for You.

Today, you’ve already seen how this could change the lives of our beta testers.

Now you can experience it for yourself, starting with your first weekly payout this Friday.

So, what would you pay for the power to collect $1,000 in instant payouts 50 times per year?

Anything less than $50,000 probably makes sense, right?

But here’s the great news: You see, we didn’t invest millions of dollars in this project to make Wall Street fat cats richer.

We did it to level the playing field so YOU could get richer, one windfall at a time.

That’s why Weekend Windfalls will retail for far less than $50,000 — $5,000 per year.

But I don’t want you to pay nearly that much! Because you’re watching this presentation, you are eligible to join Weekend Windfalls as a Charter Member.

If you choose to join today, you won’t pay the regular price. You won’t even pay HALF the regular price.

Instead, we will cover 63% of the cost for Charter Members.

So, if you get in right now, the cost drops to the Charter Level of just $1,850 — for a FULL year of Weekend Windfalls!

You SAVE $3,150!

But it gets better …

Our $50,000-Per-Year Promise

With a demonstrated 99.7% win rate, we’re very confident in the Weekend Windfall system.

That’s why we’re also prepared to promise that you’ll have the opportunity to make an extra $50,000 per year.

Precisely how much you want to make is up to you, depending on how much cash you put in your account and what kind of account you select.

So, you could potentially make much more with our recommendations. But $50k is a great goal to aim for.

If you don’t have the opportunity to make at least $50,000 in your first year, then we’ll give you a second year FREE. That’s an extra 50 windfalls, plus Mike’s special situation windfalls (a $5,000 value) for free.

But there is one caveat: We’re only opening up this offer to 500 people today …

Will You Be Among the 0.2% Who Get in?

Since this is a brand-new service, with special Charter pricing that we may never offer again …

We can only allow 750 people to join as Charter Members.

With over 250,000 Weiss Ratings readers all over the world, that means only 0.2% of the people who see this will be allowed access today.

All you need to do to get started is click here.

Once you click that button, you’ll be taken to a secure order page where you can review all the details one final time before making a purchase.

Then, you lock in your special Charter Members price of only $1,850 and you become one of the few readers that gain immediate access to the next weekend windfall opportunity as soon as this Friday.

A Very Important Choice in
Front of You Right Now

You can ignore this opportunity and continue on exactly as you are now.

Maybe you’re already rich and comfortably retired.

Maybe your life is exactly where you want it to be financially, and you really don’t need any extra income in your life.

If that’s the case, more power to you!

But if you’ve made it this far, chances are you definitely could use more income every week of the year.

If that’s you, then you’re in the right place. Because right now, you can choose to make your life substantially easier. You can choose the easy, automatic path to extra weekly income with Weekend Windfalls.

We do all the work, crunch all the data points, and simply give you your income opportunity every Friday morning between 9:30 and 12 Noon.

Important note: The ability to (a) earn approximately $1,000 in extra income per week or much more, (b) earn approximately $50,000 per year or multiples thereof, (c) achieve annual average returns that are nearly 100 times better than bank CDs, and (d) do so with a 99.7% success rate, is based on over three years of testing from 1/15/2016 to 7/19/2019 using the Weiss Stock Ratings model, as well as the Weiss Options Model to analyze thousands of stocks and hundreds of thousands of options, assuming a hypothetical investor uses two times minimum required margin (or only half of maximum leverage). If less or no leverage were used, the income achieved would be marginally or significantly smaller. Unexpected sharp declines in financial markets, such as occurred during the Covid-19 crisis of March and April of 2020, can also adversely affect performance.

Although past experience or testing is no guarantee of future performance, we believe these results provide an accurate representation of what is possible. Trading tactics that can further enhance the income and capital preservation of the strategy were not included in the test period but will be included in the Weekend Windfall Service.
