“The Money Machine:” Keith Schaefer’s “Premiere Growth+Dividend Investment”

I haven’t written about Keith Schaefer in a while, so with oil prices dropping and scaring all the oil investors I thought we’d take a gander at the stock he’s teasing as “one of the safest, long-term growth investments I have ever come across in my investing career.” The pitch is that this company is […]

“The End of Rust” — What’s Nick Hodge’s “Oscar of Innovation” corrosion-fighting stock?

This teaser pitch started running, and we covered it, in mid-September — this article originally ran on September 18. It has not been updated or revised in the six weeks since then, but the ad is still in heavy enough rotation that many people are asking about it again, so we’re re-posting it for you. […]

“It’s going to be the ‘Apple’ of cancer therapy in the next 20 years.”

Immunotherapy for cancer has been in the news quite a bit in recent years, with several drugs making an impact on the worst cancers and giving some real hope for future advancement — not a small thing for a basic medical strategy that’s been tested and tweaked for 125 years now by folks following in […]

“Triple-Digit Profits from the Diabetic ‘Patch’ Company Going to $1 Billion.”

Today the pitch that’s been catching my eye is from Mitchell Clark for his Biotech Breakthrough Stock Report — we haven’t covered this newsletter before, but we have certainly covered teaser spiels from Mitchell Clark’s wide variety of Lombardi-published newsletters in the past (before he was a biotech expert this week, he was a bible […]

Unraveled: “Warren Buffett’s Worst Nightmare” pitch from the Motley Fool

We’ve had many questions from readers about this teaser spiel from the Motley Fool Stock Advisor letter, so we’re republishing an excerpt of the Friday File in which we solved that teaser. What follows originally appeared as a part of the Friday File on May 9, it has not been updated or revised — the […]

“The Scientists Who Really Might Find a Cure for Cancer,” plus some thoughts on seismic, hospitals and hedge funds

I’ve got a few thoughts for you on some companies I follow and own, and a little follow-up on last week’s chatter about hedge funds, but first I thought you’d like a quick teaser solution for your Friday File fun… The pitch is for Stephen Petranek’s Breakthrough Technology Alert – there’s been some discussion recently […]

What’s the Motley Fool’s “Holy Grail investment into ‘Oil Boom 2.0?’”

The carnage in energy and oil services stocks over the last six months or so is causing a lot of contrarian investors to sit up and take notice — the combination of lower perceived demand (because of efficiency, slower growth in China, and the recession in Europe) and increased supply (because of the huge shale […]

“The Real Secret Behind Apple’s Biggest Success”

Ian Wyatt is pitching a stock that he says is going to surge on the demand for more wireless data that comes with each new iteration of the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy… and I didn’t look at this ad for a few days, because it sounded really familiar. Wyatt’s copywriters love the Apple iPhone connection […]

Keith Kohl and the $1 “Petroplex” Stock

This article originally appeared on August 14, neither the article nor the ad I cover here have been updated or changed, but the ad is rolling again and generating questions from readers so we’re lifting it to the top of the page for you. —-from 8/14/14—– I didn’t look at this pitch right away, since […]

“Hillary Clinton — Best President Ever?” (Deciphering Matt Badiali’s oil stock teaser pitch)

Matt Badiali and the folks at Stansberry Research are very skilled at using the names of politicians to inspire visceral reactions in readers and get them to read their ads or listen to their sales pitch presentations. Which is, of course, the point — and it doesn’t even really matter which politician’s name they use, […]

“Three ‘raging-bulls’ to protect and grow your portfolio” from Louis Navellier

Louis Navellier has been around for far longer than most of the newsletter pundits, and his quantitative system has proven itself to be pretty good on average for long periods of time (though it also has taken big hits during rapid market collapses, of course) — we write about his teaser picks from time to […]

“How Has This ‘Buffett Clone’ Beaten Berkshire’s Returns by 70% Since 1998?”

I haven’t written about a teaser pitch from Nicholas Vardy in a while, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for stocks I’d like to have on my “watch list” to maybe buy if we continue to see prices fall across the market… so this one about a “Buffett Clone” caught my eye. Who wouldn’t […]

“One of the Greatest Businesses We’ve Ever Found”, plus a look at Facebook for the Friday File

I’m on the road with my family this holiday weekend, so I’ll get this Friday File mishmosh of thoughts out to you a bit early. There are two things I want to do… chatter a bit about online advertising and Facebook, partly because I’ve been looking into the sector and partly because folks have been […]

What about ‘dem Robots? (DeHaemer’s “Ride the Robot Revolution” Stocks revealed)

This article was originally published on November 13, 2013. The ad is circulating again and generating questions from readers, so we’re re-running it for you — the ad is still largely unchanged, and the three “secret” companies are still the same. The largest, FANUY, has matched the S&P with a 9% gain since the article […]

“The Defense Contractor with the Graphene Breakthrough that Will Prevent a Nuclear War”

Our headline today is from Dr. Kent Moors, who is pitching his series of special reports/recommendations that he calls the “Great Game”, essentially a series of ideas based on the big “chess game” going on around the world between China, Russia, the U.S. and others for “global supremacy,” largely in control of resources. They’re bundling […]
