Take control of your investments.
Question for disciplined, long-term investors who are actively trying to build confidence selecting stocks on their own analysis…
If you could gain an advantage in the market through working a repeatable, trusted, and professionally-informed process to navigate the noise that doesn’t strain your schedule and nips the overwhelm from the industry’s ‘need to know every strategy’ pressure right in the bud…
…would you finally feel confident enough to take your financial future into your own hands and make learning how to navigate the value investing world like an expert your #1 priority?
Maybe you just caught yourself gently nodding your head. Or, maybe you’ve given yourself whiplash. Regardless of how your ‘Yes, please!’ looks (and feels), here’s why being ready to own your success in the stock market matters.
There are thousands of undervalued stocks on the market every day ready to be catalyzed into exponential growth with relatively few eyes on them…and with few investors clued in to their potential.
If you’re listening to the same voices talk about the same stocks day in and day out and feel like you’re wasting time listening while more interesting (and profitable) stocks out there to look at...
The lack of trust in your analysis process makes your current solo stock selecting practices feel random at best, and incite a cellular fear of portfolio-fatal crashes that would cripple you financially (and let’s be real: emotionally)...
Then keep reading...
Because the kind of confidence you're after in your stock selecting strategy comes from knowing your picks are founded on factual information and solid assessment; they can stand up to the most ruthless scrutiny of all—your own—and provide the advantage in the market you've always wanted.
An advantage that is ahead of the curve and anticipates trends and movements that no one else could see coming.
This could very well be the turning point in your investment journey.
Because with all the time and energy you spend trying gain an advantage…
Isn’t it about time you saw that investment pay off?
With the kind of commitment you bring to learning about investing and future focus you bring to growing your wealth, you deserve the payoff.
You deserve to feel complete confidence and clarity in your investment strateg—knowing that whatever you wake up to, and no matter how the market moves, you’ve got a well-informed (and goal-aligned) plan to implement.
You deserve to feel excited and optimistic about your potential in the market—free to make choices informed by your own skills and expertise, and inspired to put your strategy to work with the intent of finding a real diamond in the rough.
You deserve to experience a win: to not only find a high potential stock, but to run it through your detailed analysis, to create a sound thesis about it, to test it as it fluctuates, and to feel calm, focused, and in control through the entire process.
If all that means you make some money in the process... well, you deserve that, too.
What’s got you stuck in taking-ownership-of-your-stock-collecting limbo?
You’re overwhelmed and distracted by trying to understand all of the strategies instead of focusing on (and mastering) one.
In pursuit of growing your wealth and gaining an advantage in your investing, you’ve been actively diversifying.
And...maybe too actively.
You’ve gotten lost in trying to master every strategy possible...right.now.
Beyond losing hours to the pursuit of elusive strategy-encyclopedia-perfection, you’re leaving money on the table (and sometimes sending it straight down the drain) by having your attention spread too thin.
Imagine what focus could do for you. A focus on one.single.strategy.
And a commitment to mastery of that one approach (GASP!) versus an attempt to know (and do) it all.
You’ve been told beating the market is impossible.
The traditional approach to investing tells you to throw your money in an Index Fund and passively watch it do its thing for the next 30 years.
…no wonder you’re hanging in the inbetween of taking real ownership over your investments and empowering yourself with the skills to do exactly what everyone tells you you can’t do!
Because actively being a human-catalyst for your own wealth is possible. Taking control of your financial future is smart. Like you.
Being an educated and empowered investor who takes ownership of their financial future doesn’t have to go hand in hand with extreme risk. It can, however, be the source of your most significant and meaningful gains.
Imagine having the confidence and trust in yourself to take ownership over how you grow your long-term wealth; to sift through the noise of a busy stock market to find the quiet few stocks that have been overlooked in the din of big businesses being amplified on every major investing channel.
And, what it could feel like to beat the market, and be first to the punch on discovering a real unicorn of a stock.
You’re already time-strapped and don’t think you have enough hours in a week to be ‘successful’.
Balancing your time between all the things you already do—school, work, family, friends—it’s hard to believe there are enough hours in a week to find ‘the good ones’.
Because based on your experience, it would take hours a day to do the sifting, sorting, and scavenging through tens of thousands of stocks to find something with real potential.
That kind of effort and commitment means cutting into time with people you love, or losing sleep.
Either way, it’s a no-go.
Now. Imagine how it would feel to apply a discovery process that drastically cuts down that time and makes the sifting and sorting process feel effortless...while adds to your shortlist on the regular.
You don’t trust yourself.
You only have your past experience to draw from, and let's be honest—self-study hasn't always been the most profitable and effective way to get into the stock market.
Maybe a loose assessment of a high potential stock got you in trouble.
Maybe you picked up some research tactics from another investor, but haven’t been able to turn that research into a well-informed analysis.
And maybe you’ve pieced together a process that looks okay on paper...but you still fear you missed something along the way—and that what you missed might be pretty painful.
However you got here, feeling a lack of confidence about where to start let alone being able to trust your own ability to discover, research, analyze, and move on a position stops you before you even think about starting.
BUT—imagine feeling the assurance of putting an expertly-informed and step-by-step process to work on every analysis you do...and mastering it to the point of such confidence that it becomes second nature (that no one—even your inner critic—can second guess).
Being the source of confident decisions on under-talked-about stocks (aka those diamonds in the rough) and beating Bloomberg to the punch as they swing upwards IS possible.
And now, in a more methodical, data-driven, research-backed, and personally tried and tested way than ever before.
By getting intimately related to the assessment strategy I’m about to share with you, you’ll:
These outcomes are totally within your reach.
But getting there—analyzing and investing with focused confidence—will require some work on your part, and that work has two requirements:
- 1Your willingness to actually do the work, methodically and with patience
- 2Your openness to getting to know and understand yourself in the process
Putting the process to work means investing the time to go deep; to dig into the fine details and use a professional and expert lens to make your picks.
And it means understanding yourself as an investor; being open to feeling your way through the process, disagreeing with and challenging me where it’s correct to do so (for you) and ultimately landing in your unique, personal investing style on the other side, backed by a strategy that you can repeat and refine, time and again.
It’s THIS strategy that’s personally let me beat some of the industry’s top experts to the punch on stocks that have outperformed the market.
It’s THIS strategy that’s allowed me to stand confidently in my choices—even when challenged by other investors (both professional and recreational)—and trust myself in the long run.
Because that’s what this is about: long-term gains.
And playing the long game means doing the work to create viable investments that work for YOU.
Still with me?
Great - because I am so excited to share something that’s been brewing for decades…
Hi, I'm Stephen Spicer...
First, let me take a hot minute to introduce myself—the ‘investing since 12 CFP’ and passionate empower-er of other investors…
I'm a proud husband to my amazing wife and rad-dad (my words) to three young (and super-awesome) boys.
I made my first stock purchase decision when I was 12-years-old (my mom kindly took the order for me). My fascination with the stock market never slowed, only diving deeper into its inner workings through my teens, into my 20s, and beyond.
Today, I’m a Certified Financial Planner®, author, and YouTube show host who’s dedicated to helping people invest smarter.
After spending 5 years in financial services industry following receiving my BSBA in Investments/Finance, I chose to take a new direction and manage my own fund (which also involved burying myself in research in the process). And what emerged were some real concerns (and the book I wrote...but that’s another story).
I kept on discovering problems with the industry and with the traditional investment paradigm. And I felt like I had to do something.
Which is why I founded Spicer Capital: specifically to help people invest smarter. To provide them with new perspectives and possibilities when it comes to growing their long-term wealth.
I believe in helping others achieve their goals and providing tangible ways for that to happen; whether through one-on-one financial planning services or through resources I create aimed at empowering the hungry-to-learn and ready-to-take ownership investors who want to get more from their investment, and want to own the process.
Investors like you. 🙂
Because I want you to be successful. I want you to achieve your goals. And my take on that is empowering you with the skills to do that on your own; relying on your own skills, ability, curiosity, and smarts to create the outcomes you want.
I was thoroughly impressed by the course. It was professional and extremely well done. It took me from someone who sort of just winged it to someone who is actually confident and knows what he's doing. The investment in the course was well worth it for me.

As one of the beta students working through the course I can honestly say Stephen has really put together and extremely well laid out, comprehensive and well thought through course. Stephen's course is helping me to put together an investing strategy I can be confident in.
I think Stephen is a dedicated teacher with a lot of love for the game. This course got me trough the company search process from a to z, I learned more then I imagined.
I'm sure this course can make everyone an educated stock selector.

The most detailed, deep-diving value investing process that takes you step-by-step from start to finish; from having no idea where to begin to feeling completely confident in your investment thesis development and the decisions it informs
Get supported and guided every step of the way with instructional and over-the-shoulder tutorial videos that will take your analysis skills from scattered and surface level to focused and refined.
In bringing over a decade of value investing skills and experience into one place, the result is a totally comprehensive 6-module course that articulates in details the analysis process I’ve refined and gives you a clear and direct road-map to making confident, informed decisions about where you take a position...and where you say an assured ‘No, thank you.’
HERE'S THE BREAKDOWN.
- Module 1
- Module 2
- Module 3
- Module 4
- Module 5
- Module 6
Busting myths and laying foundation.
Launch into your learning by understanding what to look for as you begin your value investing journey. Free yourself from some old beliefs and ideas that have made getting any traction in the market an uphill battle and prepare yourself for what’s to come in following modules.
This module will break down two major topics:
Drowning out the market noise and narrowing down the tens of thousands of stocks to the high potential few.
The beginning of the ‘how’ in the stock analysis process, you’ll learn how to spot high potential stocks and the three step approach from turning your ‘ish’ list into your ‘wish list’ (aka your shortlist of pre-screened stocks ready to be researched).
In this module you’ll need a pen and a notebook, because we’re going to get tactical with:
PLUS look forward to a bonus video: the most comprehensive Uncle Stock Tutorial (it might not mean anything to you now...but it will).
The quickest way to weed out the losers so you don’t waste your time.
Even after hitting a shortlist, a stock can still be a dud. Learn how to spot them sooner and limit the time you spend getting to ‘know’ them through a research process that leverages to search tools. Yep...only two.
You’ll also ask two questions to find the most efficient way to work through your shortlist:
And I’ll walk you through my own research process using my very own shortlist as an example; giving you a first-hand experience and a detailed breakdown in the implementation of this part of the process that you can easily repeat in your own ‘weeding’.
Peek over my shoulder and see various ways to analyze your stocks and determine fair value.
The place where most value investors lose confidence, the analysis portion of a stock assessment takes time and focus. Through 7 lessons, we’ll navigate both the tactical AND the mental/emotional game of analyzing potential positions - leaving your head and your heart ready for whatever comes your way.
In the meatiest module of the course, you’ll digest:
AND as a bonus: you’ll experience the only thing more boring than reading and reviewing financial statements…you’ll watch ME read and review financial statements! The why? You’ll get insight into what I look for and focus on.
Expert decision making and the key to ensuring you don’t lose money.
The pinnacle moment in the process: determining if what you’ve found is really a diamond in the rough...or a dud.
As you create your Investment Thesis, you’ll focus on:
Putting your money and emotions on the line, and creating an empowered plan to manage your positions.
Create more confidence, self assurance, and empowerment in the investing process.
Instead of being at the mercy of the market, you’ll have an organized approach to how to move when it does.
You’ll have a plan in place to mitigate your losses and maintain your gains.
And most importantly, you’ll stop keeping yourself up at night worrying about your positions crashing more than the market, knowing that even if that were to happen, you have a course of action already in place….it just has to be set in motion.
As methodical as the analysis portion of the process, in building trading confidence you’ll:
When you’ve worked your way through the course, you’ll not only arrive on the other side armed with more insight and understanding about the value investing process itself, you’ll…

THE EMPOWERED GUARANTEE
This is all about YOUR confidence: in the course delivering on your expectations, and as a newly empowered value investor.
And the promise is simple:
If, in 30 days, after taking the time to digest the course content, move through the modules, apply the process, and sit with the strategy, you still don’t feel like you have a clarified approach, process and strategy to confidently discover, research and analyze stocks that you find….
...simply send me an email and I will email you back to make sure we get your refund processed ASAP, no questions asked.
Yep. It’s that clear, and that simple.
I just can’t stand the thought of someone paying good money for something that I’ve created, and not feeling as though they’ve received more than enough value from it.
And I don’t want there to be any barriers impeding your long-term success.
And...30 days is more than enough time to immerse yourself in the content and determine if it has authentically contributed to your experience as an investor.
Receiving real value and real, usable, tangible skills and information: that’s the goal.
Yes, some people will take advantage of this guarantee. Mainly because I’m not asking you to show me ‘proof’ of doing the work.
But I didn't create this course for them (those who might take advantage of this generous guarantee). I created it for YOU. And since I sincerely want to help honest people like you, I want to remove any obstacles—like the human-ness that is a little doubt or fear—that might be holding you back from saying ‘yes’ to your future as a confident value investor.
I’m willing to take the risk, trusting that the comprehensiveness of its step-by-step approach will empower you in becoming the investor you desire to be.
And having the process laid out is the biggest hurdle to clear on the path to being that person.
So - with nothing to lose, and only meaningful movement towards your future financial goals to gain...will you dive in?
Here are some questions other long-term investors ready to take ownership of their financial future and be at the helm of their personal stock picking have asked me about The Empowered Stock Selector:
I’m overwhelmed by how much information and how many strategies are out there. Is this going to be something else to add to that feeling that I can’t keep up?
Simply put: no.
And here’s why:
One of the first things I’m going to share with you is what unites the most successful investors: they focus.
They seek mastery over being a generalist.
And that’s their key to finding success.
And frankly, it’s freeing.
Because no matter how many strategies you try to implement to build your portfolio and your long-term wealth, none of them will work if they don’t reflect you; if they’re not representative of your values and if they don’t align with your unique perspective and preferences when it comes to investing.
In The Empowered Stock Selector I’m going to ask you to take on a new approach: to go an inch wide, and a mile deep. To learn the strategy I’m going to share with you, AND to question it. To get to know how it works for you, not simply how it works.
And if that’s one skill I can share with you, then the course has already done its job.
Because who you’ll be as an investor moving forward is completely different: you’ll navigate with more curiosity and willingness to dive deep before making a move.
And that, my friend, is worth the work, and worth its weight in GOLD.
I’ve made some of my own picks before….but always end up worried my positions will crash more than the market. Can this course help me with that?
The market is unpredictable. This we know to be true.
And. The one thing to help combat fear-of-crash-itis and doubting-my-analysis paralysis?
Hear me out.
When you’re approaching your analysis from a methodical process that’s data- and logic-driven, research-backed and detail-oriented, you’ll be setting yourself up for a confidence-boosting win.
Because you’ll know you’ve looked at the opportunity from every angle. You’ve done the work to prove yourself wrong. And, you’ve run countless situations to create your exit strategy - in times of a further fall, or an incredible upswing.
You’ll be able to combat the fear that you’ve missed something knowing…well…you haven’t.
And you’ll be able to trust the choice to buy—or not—because you have made the choice based on your own values and goals…not someone else’s.
I hear it all the time: ‘You can’t beat the market. Your best bet is to put your money in an Index Fund and let it sit there for 30 years.’ If that’s the case, why should I think about putting any attention on my own stocks?
It’s not ‘the worst’ advice. And...it’s also a little bit lackluster…agree?
A fairly ‘vanilla’ approach to investing…some might say.
And it’s not like I’m suggesting that insane amounts of risk are the answer.
Far from it, actually; it’s my goal to help people invest smarter.
And smarter in this case means taking ownership of your long-term wealth with confidence, empowerment, and optimism.
Confidence in yourself, your strategy, and your ability to assess and analyze a stock before taking a position.
Empowerment in having a clear investment approach that gives you choice in how and where you take your positions.
And optimism about your potential in the market; seeing it as a place to explore and grow your wealth as opposed to have your financial future be at the mercy of how it moves.
There are tons of ‘experts’ online touting their ‘picks’ and top strategies. How is this course going to be any different than what they’re teaching?
This one’s two-fold.
1) Strategic planning. You’ll get way more than directions on what stocks to look at or buy. Because an insight on an ‘interesting’ stock doesn’t come along with coaching on how to prepare yourself when the market moves…and The Empowered Stock Selector has an entire module dedicated to specifically that.
2) Drown out the noise. The majority of news outlets and ‘expert’ sites are sharing the same information about the same ‘big business’ stocks…with a handful of channels simply regurgitating what other people are saying. The Empowered Stock Selector encourages sifting down to some companies who haven’t hit the radar of major outlets…yet that are undervalued and hold a ton of potential. You’ll get to be a first mover…instead of a cautious follower of others’ insights and picks.
I feel like I don’t have enough time available to be successful in the investing space. I’m looking for a way to be ‘in’ without draining time from the other parts of my life that matter - how does The Empowered Stock Selector fit into that?
Oh, I hear you.
Having a full life, and finding a way to be an active investor and personally manage your picks that doesn’t interfere with or detract from your priorities matters.
And, like I’ve mentioned a few times now, that’s why the need to choose one strategy and master it is the way to make personal investing work. It’s the difference of trying to nail a breadth of strategies with a shallow understanding versus focusing on one, diving deep, and then adapting it over time. Inch wide, mile deep (you’ll hear me use that term more than once inside The Empowered Stock Selector).
I wouldn’t be able to manage a client load with Spicer Capital Management, create resources for my YouTube channel, and be a present dad to my boys and a solid partner to my wife along with manage my own positions without this approach. It saves me immense amounts of time and energy - and has been the source of some of my most meaningful finds along the way.
