Are all Agora & Stansberry newsletters pure scams?

”Pump & Dump” schemes for Penny Stocks are proliferating through ”fear & greed” Newsletters.
Question: Are all Agora & Stansberry newsletters pure scams? Do they all accept payment for touting penny stocks?

What about PENNY STOCK RESEARCH (free) by Gordon Lewis? Is that unbiased?

Are all newsletters that DO accept payment for touting stocks REQUIRED to state the conflict of interest in a disclaimer?

Victim of recent Pump & Dumps: TAGG, PRTN, SNPK, SOPV, XCLL, WTFSE.
Small money, but near total losses.

The Agora and Stansberry newsletters (Stansberry is an Agora affiliate, as are Money Map Press and the Oxford Club and a dozen others) are not scams in that way — they may or may not be good or useful newsletters, but they have trading rules about the stocks they cover and they don’t appear to participate in “pump and dump” trading. They have extremely profitable businesses selling subscriptions, so taking advantage of their readers by promoting lousy penny stocks would be counterproductive in the long run. Which isn’t to say that their mailing lists aren’t used for penny stock pump… Read more »

Blah Blah Blah…sour grapes perhaps? I am amused with all the Stansberry bashing here. Personally I have found MORE common sense, regarding to investing than with ANY other financial news letter in the market. In addition, I have made more money by making smarter decesions when it comes to investing, by considering what all Stansberry research has to say. Do I buy into all the news letters and programs? Heck no! But . Its like anything in life- take what information you can use, and benefit from, and discard that which you don’t want to consider. How simple can that… Read more »

Stansberry Associates has some value to it. It’s the S&A Report and the new Alpha that came out is a good options strategy as long as the underlining stock has intrinsic long term value in a growth area of the economy like their recommendation to buy Chicago Bridge and Iron who will make all the infrastructure for Nat Gas Export terminals. If you remember the Gold rush which now is Nat Gas exporting it was the people that provided the infrastructure to the Gold miners that got rich. Companies that made the Picks and Shovels. Don’t forget Levis was born… Read more »

I’ve made good consistent money with the Stansberry’s Daily Wealth Trader. I’ve also learned a lot about options and have made money selling puts/calls. Prior to DWT, I knew nothing about options. I’ll gladly put up with the regular promotion of other newsletters to keep DWT.

People are speculating that the CEO and his buyout team might have to raise their bid, or that a competitor will emerge
Possible, but I think the odds are in the buyers’ favor now since they have a large position already, there aren’t other strong institutional holders, and individual shareholders rarely vote.

Any thoughts re: the advisement sources (from Agora and Money Map) that recommend micro or penny stocks with 300+% upside? These are selling at $2,000-$5,000 per year?
