Capitalist Exploits is seriously just a great service and community. You get WAY more bang for your buck than any other investment research service. Weekly letters, monthly webinars, boat loads of ideas, education, humor, entertainment and a great community to interact with online. If you are paying $2,000 to $4,000 a year for a newsletter that posts once MAYBE twice a month you are getting scammed IMO, Capitalist Exploits is NOT that kind of service. Honestly I can’t say enough good things about Chris & Crew. – Josiah R.
Capitalist Exploits is fantastic research resource. Well researched, thought out and presented thematic investment ideas with actionable trade recommendations. Add that to an incredibly entertaining writing style and you have a publication I look forward to every day. Bottom line they have made me a lot of $. – Elizabeth D.
Worth 50-100x the Cost. Easy. Great material. I love it. The research coincides with my own investing style and when there’s an overlap I put down 2-3x what I would. This is the kind of research you want to be paying for year after year for decades because it introduces you to new things. Great for people with no time to be fully exposed to everything going on out there. It took me 45-50 days to make back my investment in the course in profit on positions. – Brian H.
I’ve been an investor for over 20 years. Subscribed to a few investment newsletters over that time. This is by far the best service I’ve come across. The research is thorough, well thought out and presented in a clear way. This is not for those looking to get rich quick. This is for those looking to get in before the crowd. Wayne Gretzky said “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” Same principle applies for investing. You will not be disappointed. – Gary
I am happy I found Capitalist Exploits! I am a professional investor with many years of experience, but I am still learning A LOT by reading Chris’s posts and listening to his webcasts. Very honest approach. Intellectually sound. No annoying marketing that plagues so many other “investment letter” providers from the US. Thank you! – LG
CapEx is a truly rare service that gives you superbly-researched contrarian investment ideas with asymmetrical risk payoff potential that you will simply not find anywhere else. Chris MacIntosh and his team are true pros. They also share a wealth of professional knowledge on trade execution and risk management tradecraft. I love it, not least of all because it has made me money while helping me sleep at night with wise risk management. Well worth the reasonable price. – Tim HK
Five years of good service and profitable wisdom. For about 5 years now I have been reading Capitalist Exploits every week, and now I subscribe to Insider as well. I’ve met Chris, Brad, and Miha in person. They are the real deal. Experts and gentlemen to boot. They have made me a lot of money and taught me new skills and interests. Good value here. – Randall T.
My top newsletter. Top asymmetric trades with huge upsides, low downside and help bulletproof your portfolio. Not for get rich quickers, this takes time and study. The team at Capitalist Exploits is the best in the business and truly care about their subscribers. – John
Honest opinion presented through coherent arguments based on macro views of the World. Untainted by anything other than the desire to make money by exploiting deep inefficiencies in the markets. No bullisht, no being wedded to any idea, no vague ‘get rich quick’ scams – just deep value propositions laying out the investment thesis in plain language for the patient investor. I have been investing in the markets for a long time and have never paid for any investment ‘advice’. Stumbling across Capitalist Exploits changed all that and I signed up without hesitation. – Anu A
This is the investment service I have been waiting for. I am coming up on my one year anniversary of subscribing to Capitalist Exploits, and I still get excited to read everything that Chris releases. With the markets as bloated with capital as they are right now, I feel deeply asymmetric investing is the only type that makes sense to me. I also highly enjoy the writing style which is blunt, with a sense of humor. As long as the quality maintains the same level, I will be a member for many years to come. – Chris T.

Learn from the best! The trade ideas presented have asymmetric return-risk-profiles and are of highest quality. Chris and his team present these ideas and their arguments clearly in an enjoyable way. Most importantly they explain how to structure these trades properly which makes this service unique. – Harry
Investment framework and community. Excellent service in terms of tradable ideas plus insightful and entertaining research covering a wide range of issues that are relevant to anyone investing and trying to make sense of the world today. You also get to join an interactive community of brilliant people with vast amount of experience in different walks of life that you can draw on which is what makes this product truly exceptional. – Tom W.

Capitalist Exploits has been awesome. Chris MacIntosh and his team are some of brightest minds I’ve ever encountered in the investment space. My main interest is in emerging technology and value investing and Chris has been excellent in these areas. He was an early proponent of investing in cryptos (2015) and Capitalist Exploits has has provided us with a number of investment opportunities from around the world consisting of industries which have been absolutely hammered, still are under the radar of the main stream financial community, and are poised to make a huge comeback.
– Michael

Perfect investment philosophy & newsletter in these times. Capitalist Exploits delivers razor sharp investment insights into below-the-radar asymmetric macro opportunities and explains all trade ideas in hilarious & plain English commentary. The perfect investment philosophy and newsletter to follow in these times. – Richard
Couldn’t ask for anything better! I’ve been following Capitalist Exploits for 4 years now and Insider as soon as it first came out a little over a year ago. I have just happily renewed my membership as it has had a significantly positive impact on my portfolio and I’m very confident it will continue to do so. Very enjoyable reading with substance, sound justification for positions taken and multiple options of how to actually apply a view for asymmetry depending on risk profile. Couldn’t ask for anything better! – Lachlan
Capitalist Exploits Rocks. The value that has accrued to my investments from your service has significantly exceeded its annual cost. That’s all that matters in the end so I’m quite satisfied and plan to stay on board. Thanks for your work and for sharing with the subscribers. – Nate I.
Best Value for the Money. I first heard Chris on a podcast interview and was impressed with his market observations and investing approach. I signed up for his emails before joining the Insider community. Both he and Lucas put a lot of work into this product to make it what I consider to be the best value among its peers. The research is in-depth, the risks are clearly stated and the reports are straightforward. Momentum investors and day traders should look elsewhere, though. This is for deep value investors with patience, perseverance and a time horizon measured in years, not months. – Greg
Fantastic, informative service that provides regular detailed commentary on positions and thesis. Very interesting, out of the ordinary positions – not just your regular stock newsletter. Chris is very knowledgeable in the markets and very responsive to members. Would highly recommend! – Steve
The only newsletter that actually makes me money. I have subscribed to various newsletters over the years and while some of them were at least interesting to read, almost all of them came up short in terms of making me money which is kind of the whole point of them. Capitalist Exploits is one such exception. – Winston W.
Insightful and actionable for a complete novice. I’ve found real value with this community. The newsletter and trade alerts are super easy for a complete market novice to pick up and put into action. They’re full of insightful and well researched ideas and actionable trades that you will read months (perhaps years) before anyone else is talking about them. I’ve learnt an incredible amount from Capitalist Exploits and the active Slack community. Can’t recommend highly enough for anyone with an interest in controlling their financial future. – Michael B.
A first class organization with top notch communication! The organization has done a great job of regularly updating the members of macro and micro economic information on various sectors and offering great opportunities for investment. The community is great with an active Slack group. The management replies to members very fast. The team is top notch with a great research team behind them providing relevant, global, up to date information that help investors make great long term investment decisions. Their blog posts and insider posts are both informative and entertaining, great writing! – Kasra
I am a member of the Capitalist Exploits for a couple of months and I do highly recommend it for the following reasons:
  1. Chris does an excellent research, when posting the investment ideas. This means that you get educated for free in several markets (cobalt, uranium, bitcoin, Nikkei, etc), which is a great asset for your investment life.
  2. The team of Capitalist Exploits is a great one to help you with whatever you need: from how to subscribe, which tools to use to trade, etc.
  3. You will not receive any “up-sell” promotions. As an example, I am currently subscribed to another investor’s newsletter (let’s call him J.A and ok, I got the really cheap subscription of 50 USD per year), but I keep on getting an email every day about “Here is how you will make 10.000% from Crypto..just click here to read…” and then there is a Paywall of 2.000 euros. I really hate this when it is happening and the Capitalist Exploits are completely free of this kind of promotions.
  4. The community of subscribers is a great one and they will also help you. There is a great slack community where you can easily connect with others.
  5. I like the investment philosophy of Chris. It’s not a “get rich quick” scheme, but the ideas may produce great results in the long run. I prefer this style to the short term chase of 10% to 20% wins.
It’s still early to say that I have made anything impressive as a ROI on my investment in a couple of months, as the idea is to hang on the investment thesis for 4-5 years. However, I feel that my money is in good investments thanks to all the support of the Capitalist Exploits team. Regarding my background: I am a PhD engineer, with 20 years experience in investing. I have no affiliation with Capitalist Exploits for writing this review. I do it just because they deserve it and because I would like to see them succeeding and helping me in the following years. Even if I lose money at the end (which I don’t think it will happen, based on the performance of the portfolio in the past couple of year), I will still value very much the education I get and the community of people. Thank you Capitalist Exploits team 🙂 – Fotis
