only fundamental analytic tool I felt was necessary was yours."
I first started investing for myself about 6 years ago
I researched every piece of software I could find on the
internet and I mean everything that was out there. I'm
a very, very meticulous person and I spent the better
part of 6 months on the evaluation. The only fundamental
analytic tool I felt was necessary was yours.
John, you're a real gem and every time I have interacted
with you through email you have always made me feel as
though I'm being treated fairly and in this world today
that is very uncommon. You're truly a very Conscientious
Person..... THANK YOU!!!!!!!!”

annualized return ... since I started to invest my money using
Conscious Investor is over 35%. ... Words cannot express my
true feelings which are centered around my “peace of
mind” regarding my future."
68 years of age, I was concerned about my retirement and
the meager returns on my retirement plan. After using
Conscious Investor and understanding its power to find
a needle in the haystack,
I took full responsibility for managing my own retirement
My annualized return, to
date, since I started to invest my money using Conscious
Investor is over 35%. For the same period my investments
are 1.4 to 1 compared to the S&P 500 and 2.4 to 1
compared to the Dow Jones. In other words
I did 70% better than the S&P 500 and 240 % better
than the Dow Jones.
Words cannot express my true feelings which are centered
around my “peace of
mind” regarding my future.
I’ll be 71 next month
and am living at a profit from my lap desk. I want
to thank you and the Conscious Investor team for giving
me power to make my own decisions!

to Conscious Investor stimulating me into action, last
August I sold some of my
low-STAEGR companies such as AMP and bought Cochlear at

average annual return ... has been 18.6% compared to 6.06%

Your response to my suggestion is just one more example
of what I have stated before —
the Conscious Investor package — software, tutorials,
documentation, conference calls and prompt service —
is amazing and unequalled. The philosophy you teach
and practise with the software has helped me define and
then sharpen an investment discipline that I never really
had before. It creates an investor mind set that is both
intensely focused and essentially stress-free.
I use Conscious Investor to screen for all of my equity
investments and have found it very helpful over the past
almost two years, since I began my subscription. Although
I have a couple of laggards, my
average annual return on equities purchased over that
time period has been 18.6% (compared to 6.06% for the
S&P 500 over the same time), so I am more than
pleased with the results. ( Dr. David Milroy,

am so excited I just had to write to you! In the past
I was a long time stock market loser who played Wall Street
like a Las Vegas craps table.
You have single-handedly caused a mind set shift that
could have saved me thousands if I found Conscious Investor
Before I go further let me tell you my short but promising
story. I installed Conscious Investor ten short weeks
ago and so far, the results
have far exceeded my wildest expectations.
I immediately put the Stock Scanner to the test…before
investing any “REAL” money. I set my parameters,
did simple search and within five minutes I had a handful
of stocks to further research and start watching.
As incredible as it was during
my five week test only one stock saw a minimal loss in
value, less than (1%). The other stocks all gained value
(2.2% on average) which I would consider a great
return for such a short period. But I’m not in it
for the short term!
As my confidence grew I put $25,000 into a separate trading
account just for Conscious Investor investments.
I purchased 325 shares of PKZ at
an average of $30.60 per share (It was at $26.40
when the Stock Scanner found it for me – one of
my test stocks) and it is
currently at $38.90 (up 27.11%).
I also purchased 100 shares of FCFS at $18.96 and it
is currently at $19.63 (up 3.53%).
Finally I purchased 75 shares of FRX
at $39.30 and the
stock is currently at $39.47 (up .44%).
In total I invested $14,789.44
which now has a current market value of $17,568.85.
Now, I understand that this has all happened in a very
short period of time and
I am in it for the long term. I’ll keep you
up to date on the progress.

such a wonderful product." (John Kirker,
out of 29 stocks with positive returns ... I am averaging
about 12% return in 5 months ... I would like to highly recommend
Conscious Investor to other investors"
"Conscious Investor was the backbone that allowed
me to find a place to start and to build a base for buying
undervalued stocks and allowing a little time to do its
thing. When I last spoke with you, I had approximately
24 out 29 stocks with positive returns. The key point
being, that the stock's growth
was not necessarily dependent on the movement within the
market itself. A good example would be when the
market trended upward by say 100 points my portfolio showed
very little movement, on the other hand
with small gains or losses in the market my portfolio
tended to move upwards. It is in essence like creating
an island with breakwaters that protects your little Island.
I am sending you a portfolio view of the stocks in my
portfolio and although as of today there are now 6 stocks
that have declined out of 29 and
I am averaging about a 12% return, give or take.
A further note is this portfolio was started in April
of 2005, so the 12% return
is based on 5 months.
I would like to highly
recommend Conscious Investor to other investors
who are looking for a tool that will make their investing
easier and rewarding. Thank you Dr John Price for taking
the time in your conference call several weeks ago. I
found that to be beneficial as well." (Mark

"Initially, after playing with the software and
data in Conscious Investor I thought I must be missing
something because it seemed too easy. In fact, early on
the simplicity of the process led me to be rather skeptical
of the results I was seeing. The share prices of some
big reputation companies were looking quite fragile whilst
some lesser publicised companies were beginning to 'smell
Fortunately my skepticism was short lived. As I explored
your wonderful online training and support, my confidence
grew exponentially. For the first time, I now feel completely
confident about making adjustments to our portfolio. Being
recently retired, I was always concerned about the ramification
of making poor investment decisions. I had dealt with
brokers, analysts and experts in the past without much
success and the pressure of getting it right caused me
a good deal of anxiety. Now though, thanks to your wonderful
analysis tool, I feel confident about making informed
and profitable investment decisions.
I know it's early days yet, but I'd like to feel as confident

reading everything I could get my hands on about the value
approach to investing, I was frustrated. While it all
made sense, from Graham to Fisher to Buffett, I still
could not figure out what a "sensible price"
for the purchase of a stock was. I studied every
discounted cash flow formula but walked away with stock
prices that could range tens of dollars by just changing
a small variable. When I found Conscious Investor (CI),
it was like a light parting
the clouds. Using a well thought out and valid
approach to judging if a stock was properly valued, CI
has opened new doors for me. In
a matter of minutes I am able to scan the universe of
6,000 stocks, eliminate
the majority of them and focus on my circle of competence.
I then have 10 years of data on the stocks in my universe
and create scenario which let me put a "margin of
safety" to work. CI allows an investor to seem really
smart by knocking out what NOT to invest in. I really
like the fact that I can easily discern the Bulls-- from
reality with CI. ....being in the money business for over
23 years, it still amazes
me how few people (including myself until 2 years ago)
follow the strategy of Buffett. Hearing some of
their BS on trading and investing really is a hoot now
that I know about value investing and Buffett. You have
made a tool which can give any investor a decent chance
of making money in spite of themselves. CI should
be in the hands of every competent investor. I
highly recommend it." (Charles

I had the good fortune to attend a seminar by John Price,
Winning the Stock Market Game Through Long Term Investing.
By the end of it I caught myself thinking that this course
is a must for anybody seriously
contemplating a future based on financial independence.
In the pursuit of excellence it's a
wise person who seeks guidance from those who have achieved
excellence. Such people leave footprints for others to
follow. In terms of financial
excellence no one has achieved more than Warren Buffett.
However, like many great people who have lead the way,
their journeys are often coded in a language of perception
and experience that is difficult to access by those not
used to such language.
In their attempts to decode the language
and perceptions of Warren Buffett, many
market commentators and authors have made the mistake
of creating their own language and 'noise', which
further confounds matters. The end result is that the
path of excellence remains inaccessible to most.
Such is not the case with John Price.
Of all those who say they know, John Price rises above
them. He does know. John is a consummate professional,
a master decoder, a skilled interpreter, teacher and practitioner

my investment decisions being based on the advice of my
broker and financial advisor with mixed results. Since
using the Conscious Investor Software things have changed

years of research and analysis of Buffets approach available

The Conscious Investor Software allows
me to easily sort through
the financial health of companies and identify
those companies, which are great
companies and are worth investing in… and
those which are not. Most importantly it helps me determine
what returns I can expect

"I have been attempting to invest in the stock market

I am delighted with Conscious Investor. I can relate

material, and in particular I’m
impressed with the intellectual rigour that underpins
the concept and the software. I think it’s
a great idea, and like all great ideas it’s simple.
I have always found it much easier to
understand statistical information that is presented in
graphical form rather than rows of figures. What I have
seen in the past is rows and rows of figures with little
correlation with other companies or the economic environment
they are operating in. This makes it very difficult for
someone like myself, who has no financial background.
But now, for the first time
in two years I’m beginning to feel quietly confident
that I’ll make a success of investing.
In closing I would also like to say that
I have found the training material excellent. You
will remember that I mentioned I was finding it a steep
learning curve, and then you mentioned CI Approach, which
you sent me. This filled in the missing gaps nicely.
As far as I can see the
training video, the online Demo Videos, the CI Approach
and the evaluation examples of stocks give excellent training.
