“Seven Times More Profitable Than Apple with Zero Competition”

Now that Apple is a few weeks from the release of their next i-device, lots of teasers will come floating out about “better than Apple” or “buy this before Apple’s new iPhone” or the like.

“Big Oil Wants a Piece of His Pie”

The Casey Energy Report is pretty pricey these days ($995/year), and so it gets quite a bit of reader attention when they hint around about a hot new idea of theirs.
