Travis has asked me to write a monthly column with comments on the markets and stock picks from my broad database that now approaches 400 stocks with investment tips I have learned as a well-seasoned investor in a broad range of markets. I have 15 sector-specific personal portfolios such as base and precious metals, energy, (from oil/gas to uranium, wind/solar and more), agricultural/fertilizer, coal/iron ore, lithium, graphite, rare earths, and critical and specialty metals (a very lucrative but neglected sector), in short, mostly commodities, but I also have a keen interest in new technologies and emerging markets. Another thing you might want to know about me is that I have been an avid organic gardener for over 50 years. Myron Martin is a paid contributor to Stock Gumshoe, he has agreed to our trading restrictions but he chooses his own topics and his words and opinions are his own.

2017 No Brainer TRUMP Presidency Pick

[ed. note: Travis is passing the keyboard to Myron Martin for a quick note today — Myron has usually focused on researching junior mining stocks for the Irregulars, but he sent in this teaser solution that he thought more readers would like to investigate. We have not looked into the stock being teased beyond what […]

Thoughts from Myron—Drill Baby Drill

In my life-long studies of the Federal Reserve I have been collecting historical quotes that only become more relevant as each year passes. Certainly this one should be on every investor’s list of quotes that are foundational to understanding how our economic and financial system actually operates. Observed Reginald McKenna, President of the Midlands Bank […]

Thoughts from Myron—Focus on Silver

Ed. note: Today we have another piece from Myron Martin, who writes for us primarily about junior miners. He has agreed to our trading restrictions, and, as usual, we have not reviewed, approved or screened his stocks or ideas, and the opinions he expresses are solely his own.  Myron’s past commentaries can be seen here. There […]

On Will "ADC" Mandate from Congress Make You a Millionaire on December 18by March 31st, 2018?
Thanks again Travis for the fact based intel.. Robinson in my opinion may be well connected as he claims, but to use a baseball analogy, by the time a batter hits the big leagues he is bound to hit the occasional home run, but that is not the norm. Expect[...]
On Friday File: "Green California Goes Dark" CO-27 pitch, plus Portfolio Updates
{ am surprised based on the comments in this article that there doesn't seem to be much interest in the cobalt story among the readership.Personally I don't have the capital to take a meaningful position in stocks with $50.to I $100/+ PRICE TAGS, I do very[...]
On Rickards and Trump's "Dollar Reboot"
While I am not quite as cynical about Jim Rickard's as Travis appears to be,I do NOT consider his premise "ridiculous as Travis labelled it, Travis as usual has added some sober second thought. Logically and mathematically Rickard's analysis makes a lot of[...]
On Navellier's "Stock of the Century"
AGREED, has been my #1 pick in the sector. since selling Orocobre and SQM years ago, but I am considering re buying Orocobre again.[...]
On Lichtenfeld's "Genesis Cure" -- "This single technology could wipe 4,800 incurable diseases off the face of the Earth"
AMEN to that, and you can add CANCER and other modern lifestyle diseases. The medical profession based on pharmaceutical industry propaganda will tell you that type 2 diabetes is incurable, all you can do is control the symptoms with insulin injections or[...]
On Cabot's "Next Amazon" and "why it could jump 50% on earnings"
AGREED, this is a low margin business and the value of the average meal does not justify the delivery cost. Having spent 1o years as a courier driver I know how competitive the delivery business really is. The cost of maintaining and operating a vehicle le[...]
On Friday File Unlocked: Kent Moors' $2 Million Startup and $7 Trillion Energy Sub-Niche
Moors is definitely one of the worst blowhards on the Internet, Cut his projections to a 10th and you might do okay with a very small initial stake until you see what actually develops. No harm in putting it on a WATCH List to track any progress or put in [...]
On What the heck is "NanoCrystal Electricity?" Will it "Magically Power Everything" and "pay out 78 times your money?"
When something has the appearance of "being too good to be true" it usually is.Anything with the Robinson name attached to it is usually mostly HYPE designed to sell subscriptions to GREEDY people lacking critical thinking skills. My first reaction to W[...]
On Oxford Club says you can "Collect Ninefold Gains on the Company That’s Perfected ‘Ultra-Lithium’”
FAIR QUESTION! We all know every sector of the market is cyclical, some more so than others, so results vary from year to year.. I have had some years where my portfolio in total has doubled but on average around 50% is a good year FOR ME. As far as lo[...]
On "Little Black Box Could End Mass Shootings Forever" from New Century Report
It should be obvious at this stage it is NOT an investment, it is simply a SPECULATION that shows promise. What I do with stocks like this is get on the companies press release list so I get alerted to their progress (if any) so I can pick a good entry po[...]
On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"
Tha'ts a little extreme if not prejudiced. I agree that the average investor with less than $100,000 in currently investable funds would be foolish to spend $2,000 for any of his services, but not worth 2c, what an uninformed exaggeration. I am sure I am n[...]
On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"
EXACTLY my semtiment's, it is simply too complicated for something I don't fully understand. I can't be bothered dealing through a 3ed party then trading one coin for another on a second exchange. No question crypto currencies did well as a sector in 2017 [...]
On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"
AGREED; I paid $5000. for a lifetime subscription for everything AGORA publishes, and I don't regret it one bit. No analyst or publisher makes 100% perfect calls consistently, but several of their analysts have made me 10's of thousands so I get a little [...]
On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"
Can't disagree with your assessment of Harry DENT, he is totally clueless about gold, his manta never changes, Gold is going to $700. (or less) no matter how much gold keeps rising. At least a BROKEN (stopped) clock is right twice a day.[...]
On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"
Having bought and read all of Rickard's books and listening to his interviews and reading his posts regularly I find this move very disappointing. I say that because I initially thought Rickard's was a very knowledgable and reliable source of information o[...]
On Keith Kohl's "Blue Gold" Pitch to turn $1 into $10 or more
I identified this trend early and invested in Formation Metals and therefore eCobalt has been very good to me. I also have a small stake in FORTUNE Minerals but my biggest cobalt holding is now CRUZ Cobalt with major holdings near the town of Cobalt in Ont[...]
On "Sig-1" and the Reversal of "79-Year-Old Grandma's Alzheimer's" pitched by Casey
What are you, a SHILL for the pharmaceutical industry" Alzheimers like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and many more are LIFESTYLE DISEASES, easily prevented and cured by natural means, drugs do not address the cause and many times have side effects WOR[...]
On What's that "August 28 ICO" pitch from Martin Hutchinson about?
I haven't paid anybody yet for supposed "inside information on crypto currencies or bought any ICO coins, even though I watch the sector with considerable interest. What I have done is put a few hundred dollars into a stock called BTL Group symbol BTL who [...]
On What's that "August 28 ICO" pitch from Martin Hutchinson about?
"Actual Dollars" now there is an interesting phase, Bet the writer dosen't know what the definition of a dollar is. When created it was valued at a specific number of grams of gold or silver that have intrinsic and rising value. Since 1971 however it is b[...]
On What are the Five "Marijuana Millionaire Summit" Stock Ideas from Casey?
Indeed, with their established liquor business I am thinking a call option on Constellation might just be the cheapest and low risk way to benefit from the upside in the marijuana sector given their substantial stake in CANOPY, an obvious leader in the ind[...]
