Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When do you publish Katusa’s Resource Opportunities?
A: On or around the first Wednesday of every month.
Q: What are the Terms and Conditions I must accept before placing an order for a paid membership?
A: Our Terms and Conditions page is found here: https://katusaresearch.com/terms-conditions-use/
Q: Is there a free trial or refund?
A: Because of the nature and extensive costs to provide our services and picks, we are very strict on refunds and we do not offer free trials. Unfortunately, some people make a career out of taking advantage of lucrative research and picks, only to cancel and clog up expensive customer service channels to cancel and refund their subscription price. We’re not interested in working those kinds of people. We’re interested in working with serious investors who know the value of very high quality investment research. Again, it costs an extraordinary amount of money to produce this kind of research. If you’re not totally satisfied with your subscription to Katusa Resesarch and our extensive educational materials – or if investing on the same terms as the world’s best resource investors isn’t for you – simply let us know within the first 7 days and we’ll refund your membership fee, minus a $500 “tire kicker” fee. By employing a $500 tire kicker refund fee, our work gets a measure of protection and we attract high-quality members who are interested in long-term relationships.
Q: How many positions do you hold in your portfolio?
A: We aim to hold 6-12 high quality stocks at any given time. This is in contrast to many mutual funds and many investment newsletters, which can hold 50… 100.. even more than 200 stocks.
We don’t believe there are 50 or 100 “great” stocks to own at any given time. We believe in concentrating our portfolio in a relatively small group of stocks we can know well and closely monitor.
Q: How long do you hold your positions?
A: We aim to hold our positions anywhere from 12-36 months. However, we’re not opposed to taking a profit after just four months. And we’re not opposed to holding a winner for four years if it’s the right thing to do. But, most of our positions will be held from 12-36 months.
Q: Is the price of all products on www.katusaresearch.com in US Dollars?
A: Yes, all prices are in USD.

Q: Does my subscription end the day I cancel?

A : Yes. The auto-billing ensures your membership does not lapse. Every 12 months, we will automatically bill your card for the publication to which you subscribe at the auto-renewal rate we offer.

Q: How do I know if I'm an accredited investor?
Q: Are junior resource stocks risky?
A: Yes. With great rewards comes great risk. By buying and selling junior stocks, you can lose your entire investment. Never allocate more than you’re comfortable with into one particular investment.
Q: What is your subscription policy?
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
By requesting a subscription and by accepting the benefits of the subscription, you agree that as a condition of your subscription you authorize Katusa Research or its agent to charge the applicable membership fee to the Payment Card on the anniversary date of purchase for each consecutive renewal date until your subscription is canceled. This continuing charge authorization shall be equivalent to individual signatures by the subscriber on subsequent Payment Card charges or “signature on file” transactions. You will not be provided with copies of charge slips evidencing the recurring charges of the applicable subscription fee.
Expiration of Payment Card or Other Refusal of Charges:
If the Payment Card is no longer valid, has expired, or for any reason will not accept charges for subsequent subscription fees, you have a period of 7 days from the date that your Payment Card was declined to update your credit card information under “My Account”.
Cancellation by You:
The initial subscription is valid for a subscription period starting on the date of purchase as detailed in the offer.
For example, if on June 18, 2015 you purchased a yearly subscription, your initial subscription fee entitles you to subscription benefits until June 18, 2016 and your Payment Card will be charged again on June 18, 2016 for the next year.
You can cancel your subscription at any time by going to “My Account” > “My Subscriptions” and clicking “Cancel.” Your subscription will not be renewed on the renewal date. But you will have continued access until the renewal date.
There are no refunds.
