We publish proprietary, pro-grade investment research covering the major indices (the S&P500, the Nasdaq and the Dow) and the key sectors comprising those indices. We combine fundamental and technical analysis to identify long-term and short term investment opportunities. We offer a wall of free content, low cost paid newsletters, and a premium real-time service.
We don't contribute to Wall St. consensus or earnings estimates. Our financial models, stock charts and consequent stock price outlooks are completely independent of company guidance or Wall St targets. And we don't advise on capital raising, M&A or any other corporate matters. In short? Our research is nothing like Wall Street Research.
We have no directional bias to our work. Markets and stocks go up, and they go down. We try to anticipate the major moves, whichever the direction, and identify ways to gain from those moves. Here's how.
First up, if you want the premium real-time package you can go direct to our Growth Investor Pro service by clicking here. Growth Investor Pro subscribers need not sign up for any of our other services, since everything they cover is included in Growth Investor Pro.
Otherwise, here's how to choose from our services.
Level 1 - Market Direction And Sector Rotation
Our top-level work is published in our ETF Select newsletter. It's free. We analyze the S&P500, the Nasdaq, the Dow, and the sectors that make up those indices - energy, tech, healthcare, consumer, financials, real estate and so on. The low-cost paid version gives you actionable ideas in the ETFs that cover these indices and sectors. Get ETF Select for free, here.
Level 2 - Technology Sector - Single-Name Stocks
Go deeper with fundamental financial analysis and technical stock analysis of single-name tech stocks in our Tech Select newsletter. We cover software and semiconductor names alike - around 50-60 of them. Once again, the basic version is free and the low-cost paid version which brings you actionable calls is just $149/yr or $14.99/mo. Get Tech Select for free, here.
Level 3 - The Emerging Metaverse Opportunity
Deeper still into the rabbithole! We believe the Metaverse is about more than just selling virtual sneakers to Facebook refugees with no legs. This new, immersive, computationally intensive iteration of the Internet will in our view become a widespread reality over the next decade, driven not by bored teenagers but by the corporate revenue opportunity. Already Nike and others operate Metaverse stores and we expect this to continue. As the Metaverse grows we expect a systemic upgrade of Internet infrastructure to accommodate the new demands for computing power and low latency comms. Our Metaverse Investor newsletter comes in free and action-oriented paid subscription versions. Get The Metaverse Investor for free, here.
Level 4 - Get Selected Highlights From Our Premium Service
If you're thinking of trying out our premium Growth Investor Pro service, you might care to start with our Growth Investor Pro Newsletter. It's just $99 for your first year. Learn more about our Growth Investor Pro Newsletter, here.

'Growth Investor Pro' starts with a wealth of actionable investing and trading ideas in growth, value and commodity names - single-name stocks and ETFs too. But more than that, our subscribers will tell you that this service can help you become a better investor and trader. You get real-time access to senior Cestrian staff both in live chat and twice-weekly members-only webinars with open-mic Q&A, extensive discussion of our ideas, and you join a lively, diverse, positive member community of professional and individual investors, industry experts and money managers.
We operate the community on the basis of three Rules of Chat.
1 - Keep It Clean, It's A Family Show.
2 - There Are No Dumb Questions, All Questions Are Good Questions
3 - Leave Your Personal Politics At The Door
These Rules mean it's not like any other stocks forum. Try it!
And if you're as cynical as us about such claims - read our reviews!
"I really love this service and I am getting out of several others to devote my time here. They follow three areas in addition to the overall market - tech, defense and space. I find this provides the level of growth and innovation that I want in my investments. I am not a dividend investor (I do have a portion in high yield stocks but it isn't my focus). I like and understand tech investing and have invested in tech for almost 30 years on and off. I have made (and unfortunately lost at times) quite a bit over the years. This service is exactly suited for me and I hope they continue as they have. They are very smart (it comes out in their writing and their humor as well as their analysis). They are very knowledgeable in their field. They have a style, but if it was interior design you might call it eclectic. Here's a quote from a piece they did that for me summed them up perfectly: "And our methods are equally applicable to long-run, multi-year investing or short-run trading. For what it's worth we think the "buy and hold" forever camp is wrong because you can be down for a long time on the way to retirement if you call market cycles wrongly; and we believe the "only ever short-term / swing trade" camp is wrong because you can miss out on major moves if you're only ever trading to the next technical level" I love that attitude, it matches my own and the style with which I have traded over many years. They use both fundamental and technical analysis including Wave analysis. And I like that. Again for me only technical doesn't provide or pay attention to enough information and only fundamental doesn't take adequate account of market psychology and the mere fact that most people in the market just want to read charts because its easier. If there is one Marketplace service to join, this is it. Take it from somebody who's been around the block a few times".
"I’ve tried out a few services but with Growth Investor Pro I feel that I have found my home. I really like their consistent analysis of stocks, written in an ‘easy to understand’ manner and often with a touch of humor to boot. I reckon they really know their onions because stock prices often take off within hours of a positive Cestrian review! I also like the group chat on Slack - lots to learn from a number of seasoned investors including those at Cestrian. All in all, I have been most impressed during my first month of membership. Thanks guys!"
" Informative, digestible, and easy to follow. Well thought out research which provides ample basis for the analysts' thesis and more often than not, they make the correct call, by a pretty considerable margin. I'm a new member but I have been following for awhile. I find the service extremely helpful to my own strategies and am glad I decided to join. And I will say that using their work I have basically already paid for the annual subscription cost in full. It's a no-brainer."
"Working in the space industry I would regularly give myself a concussion slamming my head on the desk after watching yet another Youtuber evaluate a space stock. Social media is filled with so called experts who don't know their periapsis from their apoapsis but push their ideas regardless. Thankfully, I came across Cestrian and immediately knew they were legit. I knew space, and a I knew space technologies, but not investing. In a short time the Cestrian community was able to help fill in my knowledge gaps. I can better analyze a business - understand the financials, evaluate management, and assess the technicals of the market. I have learned more in a few weeks with the Cestrian community than I ever did with the "self taught" road. The best part is, I have had fun doing it! The group is filled with intelligent domain experts. Thanks to them, I have diversified my portfolio into other high growth industries with confidence. I look forward to the daily banter and every weekend my wife and I learn something new reading 'The Weekend Epicurean'. Check it out, you may never hold a wine glass the same! "
"Down to earth no nonsense research supporting a great community of like-minded investors. Not so like-minded that there isn't debate and challenge but you do feel like part of a larger community. There is plenty of tire kicking and sharing of ideas which I really enjoy. Incidentally what first attracted me to Cestrian was the writing style which has humor coupled with rigor, a solid focus on the numbers with some Fibonacci thrown in too."
Cestrian Space Select is of great value and not just for experienced investors or traders. Between in-depth fundamental analysis of new and old space players, and macro/geopolitical insights, the service helps me navigate my long-term investing in Defense, Tech, and all other sectors as well. Trade alerts - not too many, not too few - let this geeky but fundamentally passive investor know that she might want to sluggishly get in on the action. The chat is huge added value, with the Cestrian analysts and a bunch of knowledgeable members covering news and earnings reports and answering questions. Bonus points for creating one of the very few spaces in the alphaverse that doesn't feel like I'm in the wrong locker room. A very pleasant way of making money. Recommended.
"I started out with a free trial. I never even thought I would pay for any such service until I tried it out for myself and saw that it gave me so much, not only a big return on my investments, but also a lot of knowledge from reading the articles and all the content from the members of chat".
"For me the value comes down to technical analysis and 'gut'/experience related commentary following earnings calls, especially the Excel revenue / free cash flow / deferred revenue rolling spreadsheets, and exchange of views and ideas on specific stocks (with invaluable industry/product knowledge input from some of the members) and macro environment "
"Cestrian has accomplished the seemingly impossible: taken normally dry, technical financial subjects and set them on end to create a service that is both informative and lively. Articles and chat room posts are concise, educational, and—due to the unique writing style—fun to read. I earned the subscription fee (and then some) within a month of joining. Cestrian provides (big breath here) … actionable buyside analysis in coverage of high-growth space, cloud, and cybersecurity names. Engaging posts that include primers on topics underlying areas of coverage, as well as pre- and post-earnings reviews. Exploration of both established names and up-and-comers. Focused medium and long-term portfolios. Daily trade alerts and suggested entries and exits on shorter-term swing trades. Coverage of many earnings reports in real-time. Ultra-responsive to members. Oversees and contributes to an active chat room that feels more like lively family dinner conversation than a disparate group of subscribers talking about stocks. And now, for the … really … important part: I’ve wasted a lot of time (and $$$) on mediocre financial services that spit out the same canned information. Not here. At Cestrian Fundamentals you get fresh insights from a seasoned firm who have somehow found a way to make investing enjoyable. What more could you ask for?"
"I have been a subscriber to Cestrian Fundamentals for a mere 6 weeks and the information that I have received has paid off big!... Enough so that it will cover the cost of my subscription for years. AND the best part is how much fun I’m having along the way. If you are new to investing or a veteran of many years, making money has never been so much fun. Thoughtful contributions from the member community are an additional perk. Feels like a family! "
"Cestrian provide a 5-star service to independent money managers. They bring to our attention ideas and concepts hard to discover by oneself and frequently their ideas lead to excellent investment decisions."
"Cestrian does a great job providing insight on all positions they acquire and seeks out alternative viewpoints to reduce risk of the positions. Short term or long term investor, the service has been worth every penny for me so far. Bonus is having a great community that has given additional knowledge and even stock picks outside the industries Cestrian covers."
" Cestrian's winning differentiator in long term investing is its Relative Value Framework for the Cloud and Defence sector stocks. Cestrian is able to turn advanced concepts used by institutional investors into a systematic and digestible approach, that can be relied upon again and again. This is crucial to one's sustainable long term success - something I learnt from my days as an institutional Rates Trader at an investment bank. Combining this with frequent short term trade ideas off chart play and market experience, Cestrian really offers a killer service that helps investors navigate the Market and bank repeated gains with strong control of risk. I highly recommend this service for investors from all backgrounds, with or without prior understanding of Cloud or Defence. Finally, the community is really fun and supportive, with people sharing a lot of their own experience and views all the time. The live chat service has been invaluable for my understanding and growth as an investor in this new area."
"A lively ecosystem sustained by members from all walks of life, many knowledgeable and well versed in making money. Armed with technical charts, fundamentals and financial facts, the state of the economy and market sentiment, it zeroes in on stocks for the short- and long-term. I'd wholeheartedly recommend to my colleagues and friends."
"The articles make me laugh and make me money -- what's not to like? Seriously, well-written material that lays out the case in plain English, with just enough numbers to back it up. They've introduced new stocks to me that have done very well for me already, and likely will again in the future, and also are moving to cover tech stocks that I'm familiar with in a clear, numbers-based analysis that is easy to follow. I never thought I'd pay for a service, but here I am, paying and enjoying it!"
"The research is deep and insightful, and they have made some pretty relevant and profitable trading calls in the short amount of time I've been a member. I've never read a report and wondered where they really stand or if they know what they're doing. Having spent nearly a decade working for two large brokerage houses, I find it refreshing to read this research. Feels like it's done for the benefit of the reader and not the company, investment bank or other interested party. Money well spent for the small investor and larger investors will find the research extremely helpful as well. Well worth it!"
"Got aware of Cestrian Capital Research in Sept/Oct 2020 while doing some research on CRWD and became a follower since I liked the writing style. Somehow that made me trust in their ideas on Maxar, Aerojet Rocketdyne and Perspecta. Stocks I never thought about investing in. Well 3 months and huge gains later I decided I wanted more from these guys than just the free articles and "invested" some of my gains in a subscription to Cestrian Growth Investor Pro ... I must say it’s absolutely worth the money. Plenty of stock analysis on Cloud and Space stocks but as a great extra, a chatroom for subscribers which turned out to be an additional resource of technical and financial expertise and investment ideas outside of CCR‘s coverage. One more extra is the down-to-earth style, humor and fun. 100% Recommendation."
"... an effective, meticulous approach to investing and focus mainly on Cloud and Space/Defense sectors. Some of their picks on Space was timely and hugely impactful. I would have never looked into this sector being a techie, but MAXR has provided amazing results in a short span of time (about 80% in one month). The Cloud Valuation framework also provides actionable, data driven, emotionless way to look at cloud sector and help you decide your investing choices. You will get your ROI in days with this service...So go ahead... "
"Highly Recommended. Insightful service that provides actionable investing ideas supported with fundamental analysis and case studies that dive deep into a business' health, management and strategic initiatives. Exclusive ideas are also abundant and have proven to be highly profitable. Strongly recommend subscribing".
