Recently I came across an investment teaser by Paul Mampilly to invest in space stocks, with him teasing 3 stocks in particular.
Mampilly is extremely bullish on space sector (space exploration and space tourism) and he thinks investors who position themselves correctly now could see massive gains in the years ahead.
In this quick review I'll be taking a look at and uncovering the three stocks that he thinks could "soar as much as 900% ... 1,000% … 3,900% ... over the next three to five years".
Let's begin by going over the teaser...
A look at the teaser:
"The Race to Mars Is Underway", and Mampilly is telling us that "early investors who understand what is happening can make an absolute fortune"...
For those who don't already know, Paul Mampilly is an ex-Wall Street hedge fund manager that has quite an impressive background, some of his more notable achievements being that he won an investment competition by making a 76% return during the 2008-2009 recession and having helped turn a $3 billion hedge fund into a $25 billion one. HOWEVER, those who know Mampilly also know that he currently works for Banyan Hill Publishing as an investment newsletter writer and often goes to extremely hyped-up measures to promote his services, such as with his Super Bull Summit teaser - so let's take what he says here with a grain of salt.
As we know, this opportunity is all centered around space, including opportunities that arise in companies involved in space exploration & space tourism... for the most part.
Mampilly is a big supporter of the colonization of Mars and goes on a long-winded spiel about why he thinks it is our "Manifest Destiny" to become a multi-planetary civilization.
Now whether or not you agree with this isn't the point. The point is that it seems more and more like there is going to be a future for humans in space. With big advancements in technology being made and loads of money pouring into the sector, such as from billionaires like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, etc., the investment opportunities that will be coming our way will likely be very exciting.
Mampilly talks about how if you missed out on investing in Apple, Amazon or Microsoft, this is your chance to make up for it, and he even goes on to state that "this will be the biggest economic boom most of us will ever see", comparing it to the railroad boom of the 1800s and automotive industry in the first half of the 1900s.
Some other hyped-up claims from the teaser include:
- "you have the opportunity to make the biggest investing gains of your life"
- "investors who get in now could see these three stocks soar as much as 900% ... 1,000% … 3,900% ... over the next three to five years"
The teaser was ridiculously long and took quite a while to get through, but by the end I was nearly drooling with excitement to get in on his 3 space stock picks... and then came the sales pitch right on cue.
And the sales pitch:
As is the typical sales blueprint fashion with these types of investment services, the details on the companies being teased are not revealed just yet.
Here's the "free" report that provides all the details: A Fortune Made in Space: The 3 Hottest Space Stocks to Buy Right Now...
But to get ahold of this "free" report one must purchase a yearly subscription to Mampilly's investment advisory service called Profits Unlimited.
Now the cheapest option here is only $49/yr, but I'm guessing you'd rather just find out the stocks he's teasing for free.
If so, keep reading.
The Space Opportunity
Mampilly goes on and on about why he is so excited about the new opportunities that lie in this sector. He believes money is going to really start pouring into this sector faster and faster as it becomes more mainstream... largely because of 3 developments that were mentioned:
- SpaceX is has plans of going to mars
- NASA is planning on going back to the moon and set up a permanent lunar outpost
- Hollywood's Tom Cruise will be filming an action movie onboard the International Space Station
Besides these developments that Mampilly talks about being in place, investing in Space is something we have already seen gain more and more interest from investors and, like all developing areas of investment, there are all sorts of future estimates as to how large this sector will actually grow. I recently read on CNBC, for example, that the Space industry could triple to be worth $1.4 trillion by 2030.
It's hard to put numbers on an industry that is so new and unprecedented. I mean, how can you possibly predict how popular Space tourism might become? Many speculate it could be one heck of an opportunity, with some estimates predicting Virgin Galactic's revenue going from $0 to $1 billion in the next 10 years.
Big potential? It seems so, and without getting too into speculations here, let's expose Paul Mampilly's Space stocks once and for all.
Mampilly's Space Stocks - He Teases 3 of Them
So, what are the stocks that could "soar as much as 900% ... 1,000% … 3,900% ... over the next three to five years"?
What space stocks does Mampilly recommend you invest in right away to get filthy stinkin' rich? Let's start out with the first...
Space Stock #1 - "A One of a Kind Space Company"
For this first one he claims to be "absolutely convinced this stock can soar 3,900%... in just five years".
Here are the clues we were given:
- It is "going toe-to-toe with the commercial space industry’s 800-pound gorilla … SpaceX"
- It's "just a few years old"
- It is "building on its proprietary rocket technology"
Not much to say here. All the clues given are very vague and don't tell us much.
There are a handul of companies that fit the vague description given, but most are privately held at the moment and there just aren't good enough clues to really narrow in on this one.
Virgin Galactic (mentioned earlier) is a potential pick here. It was founded in 2004 (this could be considered a "few" years old), does have proprietary rocket technology, is competing with SpaceX, and it just went public in 2019. The ticker symbol is SPCE.
But this is just a good guess. Any other guesses on what this stock is here are more than welcome.
Space Stock #2 - The Belle of the Big Money
This one Mampilly tells us "could hand us a gain of 1,000% in the next three to five years".
- It's "another strong American company"
- They are "employing more than 2,000 people"
- it has "annual sales of around $600 million , and it’s valued at less than $1 billion"
- It is "at the center of the biggest revolution in manufacturing in decades" - which is what makes it so important for space ventures
- "Right now, the stock is trading under $15 per share"
So it's some kind of new manufacturing tech that will be very important to space business, but it doesn't sound like it's directly linked to such.
We are also told that Elon Musk has stated that this technology is "going to revolutionize design and manufacturing in the 21st Century".
Now if you do some research here you'll find that Musk was talking about designing and engineering rockets for his SpaceX company using 3D immersive reality visualizations that designers and engineers can interact with in real time with natural hand gestures, as shown here...
But this isn't the investment opportunity. Musk then went on to talk about 3D printing and it's importance in the process of rocket design/manufacturing.
It makes perfect sense that Mampilly is teasing a 3D printing company here. And he's been very bullish on them in the past. But which company?
Well, the startup Relativity Space has the largest 3D printers and plans on manufacturing rockets entirely with them. It's a space company that is heavily relying on 3D printing company, but this still isn't publicly traded, so that's off the list.
He tells us the company trades for under $15.
So what is it?
Well, my best guess is 3D Systems (DDD).
Not only does this stock trade for under $15 without trading for too low under $15, but it's a 3D printing stock that Paul has teased in the past. In fact, this was his "America 2.0" stock pick.
All the other clues match up with this pick too. They employ over 2,000 employees (but less than 3k) and their annual revenue from 2019 (the latest data) was at $629 million - Mampilly mentioned this figure being "around $600 million".
Space Stock #3 - "Our Play on 'Digital Steel' for Space"
And lastly, Mampilly's third pick he tells us is "the biggest and strongest of my three favorite space stocks" and is "the perfect setup for a 900% return over the next five years".
900% returns? Sounds good to me.
Let's take a look at the clues he gives us:
- "It makes 'digital steel' products that solve its customers’ most difficult design challenges"
- Has been doing this "since the late 1950s"
- It "serves more than 120,000 customers in the aerospace, defense & security, communications and industrial markets"
- Its currect market cap is "a little under $40 billion"
- It makes tech products for missions to the moon and Mars, and these products are "qualified to the highest standards of NASA, the Defense Logistics Agency, and the European Space Agency"
- It has "3,765 government patents in the U.S. alone", and more in other countries
First off, we need to know what he's talking about with this "digital steel" jargon.
"Digital steel" is just a term he made up. What he's actually talking about here are semiconductors. He's used this term in the past to refer to them, so this is how I know.
And the company being teased here is none other than Microchip Technology (MCHP), which was fairly easy to identify.
Microchip Technology is a semiconductor company headquartered in Arizona and most well-known for analog and flash-IP integrated circuits.
The company has right around 3,765 patents in the US (didn't count them all, but my estimations are right around this number), their market cap is just under $40 billion, and they specifically mention that they "serve more than 120,000 customers across the industrial, automotive, consumer, aerospace and defense, communications and computing markets".
A pretty solid match here.
Will You "Make An Absolute Fortune" Here?
As you know, I haven't been able to identify the first space stock Mampilly is teasing here with confidence, which happens to be the one he's most bullish on, but the other two I have.
Are they really 9x and 10x gainers like he says?
Well, as is often the case with investment teasers, these predictions are highly speculative and you certainly shouldn't bet the house on future gains like these.
3D Systems is a top leader in the 3D printing space and Microchip Technologies is a major company in its own respective sector, but both have 12-month forecasts by analysts that aren't very impressive and predicting 9x and 10x gains 5 years from now is certainly a difficult task.
Investing in the emerging commercial space sector has a lot of potential, but neither of the 2 picks I've identified are directly in this space and it's definitely recommended that you really do your homework before purchasing shares of either.
One of the problems for investors at the moment is that there just aren't a lot of choices out there when it comes to publicly traded companies in this space. Much of the companies in the space sector are still private and off limits for the average retail investor. But it's definitely an area to keep your eyes on in the near future and it's worth mentioning that joining Mampilly's advisory service (not saying you should) also provides a watchlist of private companies that he's waiting on to go public within the next few years.
Quick Recap & Conclusion

Thank you, very informative
No problem. Glad to help!
Thank you for the heads up. I already own SPCE which is being recommended by Motley Fool as a high conviction stock pick. I'm up 15% since the middle of November. The stock went up and came back down just like their last rocket launch that failed to reach space. On a good note it did land intact for another day! Thanks again!
Thank U SO MUCH!! Just for letting others know that just because they say a company will grow does not mean u should believe them. DO your own DD and Research. Then decide. Many of the companies have been good. But be careful like u said for made up BS!!!
Read my first report and am glad I signed on. A bit verbose but definitely informative and well worth the read
I look forward to more
Keep up the GOOD WORK
If not Mistaken Mr Musk is setting up a network Refrigerator size Satellites for communication
Or am I wrong????
Thanks for the review, knew about SPCE and DDD which I own already, but not MCHP, Will look into it. Really appreciate your expose`s on the teasers that abound and can have one chasing ghosts if you know what I mean.
Thank you ! A well done commentary.
Going to research tomorrow
Loving what u r providing. Thank you very much!
Glad to help!
Your essay's are fantastic in uncovering investment scams and extreme hype! Thank you for your time and research to keep the playing field playable.
You covered the Jesus Battery several weeks ago.
I must have deleted it. Could you please send me the ticker symbol
Hi Joe. The “Jesus Battery”, aka the “Quantum Glass Battery” that is being teased by Matt McCall is Ilika (IKA on the London exchange or OTC in the US as ILIKF). Here’s our review of that if you’re interested.
Thanks for the research. Very informative. I get sooo many emails and pitches. Glad to know which ones to block.
Is Jeff Brown’s Project XI teasing the same Atomera Inc., as Chris Wood was back in August and December?
Hi Brian. Unfortunately I’m unsure of what was being teased in his Project Xi teaser, which is one we reviewed a while back. This one tripped us up due to a lack of good clues.
Thank you for this type of education, it is extremely informative.
Thank you Anders for the free and valuable analysis. I have been receiving your correspondence for a few days now and find the insights so helpful (especially from the view of restraint I.e.,truth is always important and ever more so in investing). I will be alert for future e-mails and certainly pass the word along to anyone with the interest. Wishing you a safe and profitable new year!
A straight up THANK YOU!!!
Thank you Anders for providing valuable information to help people like me who are just starting to trade.
Just found your site today. Great read! I find it very informative, as well as interesting.
Thanks – I have been a subscriber to his basic service and have done well, but don’t fancy any further subscription fees.
Thank you so much for what you do, and most of all, for your honesty. More grace to your elbow!
I enjoy all your work, and as a side note, I just purchased MCHP this week. They're doing a 2:1 split in October and have a positive EPS, something most of these teased stocks don't have. Keep up the great research!
Thanks mr. Anders for your expertise, and willingness to share it with the public. I say you are exceptional and a good man. Sam Kimbrell
