November 30, 2009, TORONTO – George Tsiolis, founder of AGORACOM.com, North America’s largest online small cap investor community, reported today that in his first year of blogging, Agoracom Chief Commentator Peter Grandich received over 1.1 million visits by 190,000 investors.
“It gives me great pleasure to announce the incredible success generated by Peter’s blog over the last 12 months,” Tsiolis said.
He explained that the 190,000 unique visitors came from 177 different countries and territories around the globe with the top 10 nations (in order of visitors) being Canada, U.S., Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, India, Thailand, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
“They read a total of 2,000,000 pages of information which is actually misleading to the downside because blogs don’t involve a lot of “page flipping”. Rather, you read Peter’s posts by scrolling up and down the main page,” he added.

About Peter Grandich:
Though he never finished high school, Grandich entered Wall Street in the mid-1980s with no formal education or training and within three years was appointed Vice President of Investment Strategy for a leading New York Stock Exchange member firm.
Now an internationally-acclaimed financial expert, he has made a 25- year career out of his knack for uncanny, accurate market predictions. Labeled the “Wall Street Whiz Kid” by Good Morning America, Grandich gained national notoriety by being among the very few who not only forecasted the 1987 stock market crash just weeks before it happened, but on the very next day predicted that within two years the market would reach a new all-time high – which it did. Proving his ‘87 forecast was no fluke, Mr. Grandich said in January 2000 that the year would go down as the year the great mega bull market of the 80s and 90s came to an end. He called for the market’s bottom in March 2009, earning him a bevy of national press coverage. Each time, he was right on target.
His ability to analyze and forecast financial happenings has resulted in hundreds of media interviews including GMA, Neil Cavuto’s Your World on Fox News, The Kudlow Report on CNBC, Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Financial Post, Globe and Mail, US News & World Report, New York Times, Business Week, MarketWatch, Business News Network and dozens more. He’s spoken at investment conferences around the globe, edited numerous investment newsletters, and is regarded as one of the world’s foremost market strategists.
Grandich was the founder and managing member of Grandich Publications, LLC, which was acquired by Agoracom in 2008, who immediately appointed Peter to the position of Agoracom Chief Commentator. Grandich also provides a variety of services to publicly-held corporations on a compensation basis.
He is the also the founder of Trinity Financial Sports & Entertainment Management Co. www.TrinityFSEM.com <http://www.TrinityFSEM.com> , a firm with a Christian perspective which he started in 2001 with Lee Rouson, former NY Giant and two-time Super Bowl champion.
