The Palm Beach Research Group is an independent financial publishing company based in Delray Beach, Florida. It publishes various advisories that provide stock, options, and income recommendations—as well as non-market wealth-building advice—to more than 234,000 subscribers.

When founders Mark Ford and Tom Dyson launched Palm Beach Research Group in 2011, they wanted to create a publishing company unlike any other.

Most financial advisories are little more than stock “tip sheets.” Mark and Tom had a different vision for their company. They wanted to provide subscribers a comprehensive wealth-building plan; one that would guide readers along the path to real, sustained financial prosperity.

To this end, Mark and Tom focused the Palm Beach Research Group on three key areas… safe income, safe growth, and comprehensive 360-degree wealth building.

Specifically, they’ve combined Tom’s experience in the financial markets with Mark’s success as a serial entrepreneur and real estate investor to achieve their goal—a holistic, wealth-building publishing company.

Services now include:

  • Stock market investments (long-term and trading)
  • Cash-generating options strategies
  • Rental real estate investing strategies
  • “Outside the market” ideas for generating additional active income
  • Credit repair strategies
  • Entrepreneurial guidelines on starting your own business
  • Retirement lifestyle guidelines.

The Palm Beach Letter

The Palm Beach Letter is our flagship investment advisory. It’s based on proven wealth-building strategies of New York Times best-selling author and multimillionaire entrepreneur Mark Ford, and the financial market expertise of Tom Dyson. This advisory teaches you how to generate new streams of active income, then invest it wisely using low-risk strategies to build and sustain your wealth. Each month, a team of analysts recommends the safest and most profitable investment ideas in the world under one single rule: Never lose money. Meanwhile, as you invest in the markets, Mark will show you “outside-the-market” wealth building strategies through his own complementary essay series called, Creating Wealth.

Price: $3,000

Palm Beach Confidential

Palm Beach Confidential is a subscription service in which we share picks that have the same criteria as other Palm Beach Research Group publications, but focus on smaller companies to generate higher returns. Most of these companies have market caps of less than $1 billion. For this reason, PBRG Co-founder Tom Dyson and Editor Teeka Tiwari previously reserved these plays for their family and closest friends. But with the creation of Palm Beach Confidential, and thanks to its limited membership, we can now deliver these plays to you. In other words, you can now consider yourself part of our “inner circle” and one of our confidantes.

Price: $3,000

Each service supports the central mission of the Palm Beach Research Group: Help Readers Get Richer Every Year.

Conclusion Rating
Good research, but overhyped, pushy marketing, riding on cryptocurrency gains that were available to anyone.

    The Palm Beach Wealth Builder SCAM

    Great sales pitch on the phone! Convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt they would be of beneficial advice and assistance for me. I bought in the program “Hook, line, and sinker!”

    Advice is there. If you are wealthy already, The program is worthwhile I suppose. I am not wealthy enough to be able to invest in the programs that they talk about.

    The only thing this program verifies to me is that “it takes (a lot) of money to make money.” The average citizen in America probably cannot afford to do anything with this advice.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A blizzard of sales messages

    There may be some good advice here, but subscribers are bombarded with several emails and videos a day, all promising some unbeatable deal only to be led to a promotion for yet another product or service.

    Customer service was polite and efficient when I phoned. Lately, the editors have begun to mix politics with financial discussions. They seem to have forgotten they are on a financial site, not a social media blog.

    When they finally descended into demonizing their political opponents they lost me. I let them know my decision and so far their response has been silence.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    90% Fluff 10% Useful Info

    I was interested in the Social Security info and I got it. Most of it was not useful to me because of my situation – oh well. But then the “weekly” newsletters started – up to two a day. Mostly like AOL with a teaser to get you to click on the link. What are you 2nd graders? Tell us what you have and we will decide if it is for us and click or not. Most of everything is fluff, trying to hype you up to buy a product. I was in sales for 20 years and it is amusing to watch them try make everything look like diamonds surrounded by cotton stuffing. I got a 10 page email – 3 pages was how this guy started out poor, worked a job, made his first stock buy… who cares! The whole point of the 10 page email didn’t come until page 9 – the first 8 pages were wasted time. Their videos are worse: 5 minutes in they say “We have a great strategy for you, but we are not going to tell you what it is yet!” and that happens 3 or 4 times so a half hour later you still don’t know what the strategy is. I did not join to invest so I can’t speak as to their advice but if you have an hour or two to waste on fluff every day – sign up.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    few good ideas repeated over and over and over and over..
    By Greg Galardy, SF, CA, Feb 1, 2016 Verified Reviewer
    If you like to hear rich guys talk about how they got rich and how you should do it too, this is the service for you. The ‘Current Income’ product can illustrate a (relatively) conservative way to make money trading options, but the rest of the service is just average advice.

    The stock picking of Teeka Tiwari and Tom Dyson is as effective as anybody else’s – but no better. The retirement advisor Bob Irish is full of good advice, but so’s my golf buddy Mike.

    All that coupled with a price that could choke a horse make this a stay-away website – be careful! These guys are rich for a reason, and it’s not because they’re excellent investors.

    Palm Beach Confidential is great!
    By Jeff Lenney, Anaheim Hills, CA, Oct 9, 2017 Verified Reviewer
    I’m basing my review solely on my experience with the Palm Beach Confidential Newsletters, by Teeka Tiwari.

    I’ve been a subscriber now for a few months, and the newsletters are short and straight to the point. In February, Teeka said to buy NEO (before I was a member), and it’s gone up from 15 cents to as high as $49.00 – a 37,000% or so return. I DID buy OMG and a few others when he said, and on AVERAGE now my portfolio with him has increased by 2,500%.

    So my $0.02 – this is based on the newsletter only, not the rest of the company.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I subscribed for a year, then cancelled. There were many emails with “valuable info” which I didn’t find very helpful, so I called after I saw my credit card had been charged $129 after the first year completed. I was told by the “first agent” that I would receive a refund within 5-7 business days. Now 3 weeks later, I noticed I haven’t yet received the refund to my credit card, so I called 888-501-2598 and spoke with the “second agent”, who told me from her review of their call notes that my original request could not be processed since the charge was pending, and that PBRG’s call notes indicated that “the customer would call back” to request the refund once the charge had cleared (I do NOT recall the original agent telling me that at all.)

    I asked the second agent why PBRG wouldn’t just follow up on its own in several days (after the charge had cleared its pending status), instead of making me go thru the steps to RE-REQUEST what I had made perfectly clear during my first call — “I want to cancel, and to receive a refund for the $129 charge at the beginning of the second year.” I suggested to the second agent that she forward my recorded comments in my conversation with her, to her management team, so they can hopefully tighten up this currently sloppy aspect of their cancellation process, which has rendered me a dissatisfied Customer.

    I wonder how many others may have experienced the same response, including perhaps NOT BEING REFUNDED AT ALL (i.e., the refund issue being “out of sight, out of mind”). Not Best Practices, by any stretch. If I am contacted by PBRG with a confirmation that they have indeed effectively changed their practices to eliminate this process defect, then I will consider revisiting this critique, and perhaps changing my overall (currently very low) rating of their company. Otherwise, I would recommend you steer clear of PBRG.

    signed up for “Deep Wave QUANT” newest service to track DARK MONEY POOLS. $ 2500 and more than a week later and I still DON’T have access to services. 3 calls to customer service and promises to escalate to “senior person” to get straightened out. Still have no access to service
    and when I said I wanted it noted that my time for subscription was not to start until I have access I was told NO.
