The Ellis Martin Report

Wednesday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Each week the Ellis Martin Report brings you potential investment opportunities and analysis of financial markets including a variety of commodities. If you’re truly seeking to possibly buy low and sell high, listen as Ellis interviews public companies that in many cases are just beginning to get their success-based stories out to the public. If geopolitics is your area of interest, learn how global tensions and market stresses can affect your money. Opportunity exists, especially in volatility. Trade short or trade long based on news….or sit on the sidelines collecting information until the time comes where you are well positioned to act. Invest at your own risk. Ellis Martin is a veteran broadcast journalist, not a financial adviser. We make no specific recommendation for investment on this program.

Note: Companies reviewed on the Ellis Martin Report in most cases are paid sponsors. Ellis Martin may also be a shareholder of companies mentioned.

Dudley Pierce Baker



I am the founder and editor of Common Stock Warrants and its predecessor, Precious Metals Warrants and a 1967 graduate of St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas with a major in accounting. I bring a different background to the investment community. After graduating in 1967 I went directly to work for the Internal Revenue Service. I was an IRS Agent, Team Coordinator (lead agent), heading up the audits on the largest corporations in the world. In 1996 and after 29 years with the Fed’s, I applied for an early retirement. Looking back most memories, either good or bad, have faded with the years. I have maintained no interest or contacts with my previous employer and frankly, like you, I have little, to no, use for the IRS. Over dinner with Martin Weiss years ago, after I had started this service, he advised me not to shy about from my background, it is part of who I am and gave me the skills to go on to other ventures. So, I have followed his advise. Perhaps most important is my 40 years or so of accumulated knowledge and experience in trading stocks, options, leaps, futures, options on futures and of course, warrants. In March 2005, I founded and launched Precious Metals Warrants. This investment Market Data Service, provided the detail on all mining and energy company Warrants trading on the U.S. and Canadian Exchanges. As an investor myself, in October 2004, I could not find this information and thus proceeded to accumulate the sources of the information and then to build the website into a user-friendly place to get the details on all warrants trading on the mining and energy companies. While, San Antonio, TX will always be home in my heart , “home-base” for Common Stock Warrants is Ajijic, Mexico, just outside of Guadalajara on Lake Chapala in the state of Jalisco. This has been my full time, home-base since 1999. View Guest page
