Stansberry founded Stansberry Research (previously Stansberry & Associates Investment Research), a private publishing company based in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1999. He is the author of the monthly newsletter, Stansberry’s Investment Advisory, which covers investments and investment theory in commodities, real estate, and the stock market. He is also the creator of the 2011 online video and infomercial titled ‘End of America’ (77 min). In 2002, the SEC brought a case for securities fraud and a federal judge fined him $1.5 million in 2007.”
