The Safe-Money Investor Advocate

In an era of high-risk, high-stakes exuberance, Mike Larson stands out as a leader in conservative investment strategies that outperform the market over the long haul.

Using the safety-oriented Weiss Ratings as a guide, Mike's Safe Money Report has a proven history of guiding investors to stocks that provide consistent dividends, excellent growth, plus asset protection in down markets.

Meanwhile, his Weekend Windfalls service — where he collaborates with Trading Specialist Juan Villaverde and Ratings Specialist Mandeep Rai — shows investors how to make an average of $1,000 in extra cash nearly every Friday, also based on a safety-first income approach.

And his Heat Maps service reveals the top-rated stocks across a wide swath of industries. In each issue, he also gives an in-depth look into one sector and explains why it — and the stocks within it — should rise to the top investors' radars, too.

Mike is a graduate of Boston University and an alumnus of both Bloomberg News and Bankrate.com, where he helped investors and consumers better understand how to get the most from their savings, how to avoid risks in the mortgage market, and improve their personal finances overall.

He began doing the same on a much larger scale when he joined Weiss Ratings in 2001.

Working closely with founder Dr. Martin Weiss for two decades has given him the opportunity to see, firsthand, how keeping an eye on safety is so essential to building a reliable nest egg.

At Weiss Ratings, he has reached millions of readers and helped investors make sense of the markets, find safer investments with the highest returns, and grow their wealth through both good times and bad.

Over the years, you may have seen him featured on financial news channels like CNN, CNBC, Fox Business and BNN Bloomberg. He has also spoken on dozens of radio shows across the U.S., and his work has been quoted by AP, Reuters, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and multiple other publications.

Today, Mike Larson is the proud standard-bearer of the Weiss 50-year tradition of safe investing.
