Gerardo Del Real

Based in Austin by way of Chicago – Go Cubs! – and Alaska... Gerardo Del Real is Co-founder of Digest Publishing, and editor of Daily Profit Cycle.

Prior to these roles, he spent a decade behind-the-scenes, providing research and advice to large institutional players, fund managers, newsletter writers and some of the most active high net worth investors in the resource space, including those who count in billions.

Del Real’s insights and advice have made – and saved – investors millions of dollars. For years he advised clients to steer clear of most companies in the resource space. And for years the resource bear persisted.

Gerardo's due diligence and track record has allowed him to create a unique and powerful network of contacts that he leverages to maximize the incredible money-making opportunities that now exist in the resource sector.

He’s helped everyone from retail investors to billionaires maximize their mining stock returns because it's where he made his wealth as well.

Mike Fagan

Mike literally grew up in the mining business.

His fascination for minerals and wealth-building started when he was just a teenager — staking gold and silver properties with his father in Nevada’s legendary Carlin Trend.

Mike recalls, “One of the properties we were drilling returned multiple commercial results; share prices went through the roof, and I was instantly hooked!”

He went on to study geology at the University of Colorado, later graduating from San Diego State’s business school in 1992.

Mike is a highly sought-after contributor to the mining and metals sector, and, for decades, has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry.

When he’s not meeting with geologists and executives at far-off mining sites for the benefit of his readers and his own investing, you’ll find him at the various North American investment conferences rubbing elbows with the leading minds in natural resources, energy, rare coins, real estate, and technology.

An avid outdoorsman, Mike spends his leisure time hiking and biking the challenging mountainous terrain of the western United States and British Columbia.

Chris Curl

Chris Curl was born at the forefront of the millennial generation in Leesburg, Virginia. 

And while he’s remained on the forefront of many things — including the cryptocurrency market — his seek-the-opportunity approach to life has taken him well out of the DC suburbs. 

Chris was into technology and gaming very early, working for an online gaming newsletter back in 1997 when he was 14. He filmed and edited movies in high school. And ultimately went on to serve Netflix in its early days. 

But he never lost the gaming itch. And he knows it from both the user and hardware side. Chris has built and refurbished several custom retro arcade gaming units. He’s also into import cars. He can hold a conversation with top Porsche owners — though he hasn’t owned one in a long time. 

Now based in the Inland Pacific Northwest, Chris was able to navigate the crypto cycle to make 60-75x his money on more than one coin. And he thinks higher prices are ahead for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in 2024.

Chris has had a ton of what he calls “Joe jobs ” — from working at Starbucks to delivering pizzas. But his mission is now clear: Make enough money with crypto to be financially independent.

John Carl

John Carl is a regular contributor to Daily Profit Cycle and is based in Charlottesville, VA.

He first entered the financial world in 2009, when he made wildly profitable calls on Netflix, Chipotle, and Green Mountain Coffee. 

High on his early success at stock picking, John decided to try out a career as a day trader. This part didn’t go so well—especially when most of his trades put him in direct competition with activist hedge fund investors like David Einhorn and Daniel Lobe. He learned the hard way what it’s like to get kicked in the teeth by bigger players in the market (not fun!). 

But each setback led to new insights, and with some care and strategy he learned how to make wiser investments. He clawed his way back with big wins on stocks like Cisco, NVidia, and Taiwan Semiconductor (in addition to dozens of smaller plays).

This is also when John found his way into financial publishing. With the help of a few old investing buddies, John began to write articles for several different publishers in the Washington DC-Baltimore area. Slowly, a career emerged.

Today John writes about precious metals, cannabis, cryptos, technology, and bio-tech. He travels all over the world to get the inside scoop: from cannabis greenhouses in Canada to coffee farms in Guatemala. But above all else he’s an investor, just like you—and you can be certain he’s always willing to put his money where his mouth is.
