Tony Petrello has contributed to the medical community in a great way. Medical scientific researchers have received immense emotional and financial support from Tony. To ensure the medical research came to fruition, Tony and his wife Cynthia gave 5 million dollars and even pledged to add some 2 million dollars more for this noble cause. Tony counts it a blessing seeing his daughter take her breakfast every morning.

Paul Mampilly did something most of his colleagues would not dream of doing; move from New York and start teaching people on stocks. It is unusual for a man at the peak of his career to slow down for the sake of teaching others. Paul Mampilly is the founder and CEO of Capuchin Consulting and the editor of Bayan Hill’s Profits Unlimited. He has had over 25 years in finance and an expert in stock trade.
Paul Mampilly is known for his unique ability to invest in stocks that are profitable. This has seen him manage hedge funds worth billions and win the prestigious Templeton Foundation investment competition. He has worked for companies like Kinetics International Fund, Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank all of which describe him as a valuable asset. The experience his has gathered trading in the stock market has seen him give his opinion on stock in reputable networks like CNBC and Bloomberg.
Paul realised that many people do not invest in stocks because they have little knowledge of how to go about it. Very few people understand when to buy and when to sell. This is the reason why Mr. Mampilly started writing the newsletter Profits Unlimited published in Bayan Hill Publications. In his writings, uses his experience in buying stocks that go up to explain to his readers why stocks go up, how to assess the value of companies and when to get away from the stocks bought. He also comes up with impressive portfolios of stocks that go up in this newsletter.
According to Mampilly, the reason why most people go wrong in buying stocks is that they basically forget about their good buying skills. The same skills they use when shopping at a supermarket or buying an apple. Most people assume that since it is stock market, the buying and selling there has to be based on different things. Paul says his first job at Wall Street in the back office saw him learn a lot about how money flows in Wall Street. This made him realise that just like when buying an apple, buying stocks is dependent on the value of a company. Therefore the same way he would assess the value of an apple to determine is it’s good or not is the same way he assess stock to determine their value before buying.
Paul Mampilly’s mission in depositing his knowledge and wisdom in people is to help the average person become rich. He sees knowledge as a means of affording them the same opportunities the rich have. Being a contributor at Bayan Hills through his newsletter allows him to do this on a daily basis.
