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.

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. In just under 40 years, tens of thousands of investors have subscribed the The Bowser Report.
