I thought you were all about uncovering teasers and bypassing the ads, why do you have a Stansberry ad in your email?

Hi friend, Stock Gumshoe is supported both by advertising and by paid memberships. We try to avoid selling ad space in our newsletter directly to stock promoters who are running pump and dump campaigns, but we do accept ads from the folks we write about and from any other publishers — most of the ads are sold through brokers, and not selected or solicited by Stock Gumshoe directly.

Thanks to Travis’s live price listings of all the teased stocks per year it is possible to pick the four best tipsters of 2012 whose picks were reviewed by Gumshoe.
They are: The Gardeners at Motley Fool 11 picks, 2 losers, average gain 31.09% to Feb 6 2013; Matt Badiali at Stansberry 8 picks 2 losers, average gain 21%; Alex Daley at Caseys E T. 4 picks 1 loser average gain 48%; Nick Vardy at Eagle F 4 picks 0 losers average gain 41%.
So if you are itching to subscribe these may be the hot tipsters.

I saw this offer as well and checked out the video. When something sounds too good to be true, it is. Apparently this guy developed a model by fitting the previous 5 or so years of data. This is all hindsight and it’s likely flawed to use it to predict the future.

Just my 2 cents on Douglas Davenport, This sounds to good to be true and would not do it for the following reasons: 1) In the video he said he got called by Sir John himself and in fact it was Sir John’s son; 2) During those years, he was instructed to mirror Warren Buffet. Hence, Berkshire’s legal counsel sent them a legal letter telling them to remove all references to Berkshire in their literature. Plus if Douglas was that good, why do you need to imitate someone else? WHY… because he doesn’t have an idea on his own that… Read more »
