Key Benefits of the VTI

Teaching you how simple metrics like Earnings or Debt can give CONTEXT on any company's financials, to help uncover stocks with healthy business models and primed for long term gains.

Focusing on Health of the Business

Wall Street tends to follow earnings growth. But there are other parts to a business; Wall St. misses the bigger picture. The Value Trap Indicator helps you avoid the stocks that are statistically likely to underperform the market.

Backtested Formula: 4,000+ Stocks

The Value Trap Indicator formula has been backtested through a database of 4,000+ stocks during the strong bull market of the 2000s, and found to consistently identify stocks which underperformed the entire group.

Making Financial Statements Simple

You’ll be blown away at how using the VTI spreadsheet makes financial statements simple. And how it makes calculations that are one step ahead, without requiring hours of sifting through financial statements.


How does the editable Value Trap Indicator Excel spreadsheet work on stocks exactly?

The process involves pulling up a stock's financials and inputting the data into the VTI Excel spreadsheet file.

Once you've got a handle on it, it takes about 5 minutes to evaluate whether a stock is a Strong Sell. This has helped many investors learn the financials by doing.

Can I use this on non-U.S. stocks like  Canada, Australia or the UK?

Yes, as long as a company has publicly posted financial statements, you can use the Value Trap Indicator.

Most of the stocks in the major international exchanges like the FTSE and TSX fulfill this, but check carefully that this applies to your country.

What if any of these packages aren't right for me? Can I get my money back?

Absolutely. If you aren't completely satisfied for any reason, you may get a full refund in the first 30 days. 

Simply email [email protected] and I'll promptly refund your purchase.
