Bowser Beginnings

In the 1970s, Founder R. Max Bowser noticed tremendous value in certain companies trading under $3 per share. These companies required less capital than larger companies and provided greater leverage. To discover which opportunities were the best, Max formed what became the Bowser Rating System and Bowser Game Plan, which together form an investment strategy for buying and selling mini-priced stocks.

The keys points are:

  • Financial stability: Identify companies with a solid financial foundation
  • Potential catalysts: Isolate companies with strong growth and/or value prospects
  • Disciplined entries: Define what price is acceptable to pay for a LONG-TERM investment
  • Predefined exits: Set profit/loss orders based on PRICE, not emotion

In 1976, Max decided to share his findings with other investors. He wrote the first issue of The Bowser Report in October of that year and sent it to approximately 100 free subscribers. Almost 50 years later, tens of thousands of investors have subscribed to and profited with the The Bowser Report.
