Dylan Jovine, a seasoned financial analyst, investment expert, and entrepreneur, has built a successful career with his profound understanding of the financial markets and an unwavering passion for financial research.
He is best known as the founder of ‘Behind The Markets‘, a groundbreaking platform that empowers individual investors by offering them access to institutional-grade investment research. This article delves into Jovine’s journey, his rise to prominence, and his commitment to democratizing financial education.
Early Days and Wall Street Beginnings
Born into a humble family in Queens, New York, Dylan Jovine’s journey to Wall Street is a tale of grit, ambition, and unparalleled dedication. In 1991, his career took off when Peter Jaquith, one of the investment bankers known for preventing New York City from bankruptcy in the 1970s, hired him. This opportunity was a game-changer for young Jovine who had grown up with financial hardships.
While his role initially involved managing accounts, Jovine was more intrigued by the process of researching stocks. His fascination soon paid off. Within three years, he earned a reputation for consistently identifying stocks ripe for takeover. Remarkably, this was in the early 1990s, before the internet bull market, and Jovine, barely 23, was picking winner after winner.
Impressed by his exceptional talent and consistent performance, his clients decided to back him in launching his own brokerage firm.
Lexington Capital Partners and Tycoon Publishing
In 1996, at the age of 24, Jovine founded the brokerage and investment bank Lexington Capital Partners (LCP) in New York City. This achievement marked him as one of the youngest individuals to guide a firm through the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) demanding Pre-Membership Interview (PMI) process.
When he sold his stake to Silver Lake Capital in 2000, LCP was a market maker in over one hundred securities, generating approximately twenty-five million in annual revenue.
The year 2004 saw Jovine launching Tycoon Publishing, aiming to offer the public independent, conflict-free investment research and education. His efforts bore fruit as, at its peak, the company served over 500,000 individual investors from more than 28 countries.
Jovine also regularly contributed to the free investment newsletter, The Tycoon Report, where he made several accurate public warnings about the stock market downturn in 2006. In 2011, Jovine sold Tycoon Publishing to Agora, Inc., the world’s largest independent financial newsletter publisher.
Behind The Markets
In 2018, Jovine embarked on his most ambitious project yet, ‘Behind The Markets‘. This platform aims to provide individual investors with the same quality investment research that institutional investors have, leveling the playing field. Offering a subscription e-mail newsletter, educational resources, and investment courses, ‘Behind The Markets’ leverages Jovine’s 30+ years of investment expertise to recommend undiscovered stocks big bank investment firms may overlook.
As the only known investing newsletter written by a former owner of a Wall Street brokerage firm, investment bank, and market maker, ‘Behind The Markets’ offers unique insights into the financial market. It reveals the opportunities and dangers in the markets before they become mainstream, providing its subscribers with a robust competitive advantage.
Growth Product Strategy
Behind The Markets primarily focuses on mid-cap, medium-term companies, with market capitalizations ranging between $1 billion to $10 billion. They search for companies demonstrating high returns-on-equity, low debt, and, crucially, a durable competitive advantage.
To minimize risk, they tend to focus on companies that have suffered what they believe to be a temporary setback, thus driving their stock prices down to reasonable levels. This strategy offers an entry point for investors to potentially gain when these companies recover and their stock prices rise.
