What’s Fessler’s “Barrel of Oil Six Times Cheaper Than Water?”

David Fessler hasn’t gotten much coverage in the pages of Gumshoe for quite a while, so when he started teasing about a company that he thinks will have gains of more than 100% by year-end… and that he thinks can produce oil for 28 cents a gallon using “Futuristic Technology … it seemed tailor made […]

“Get in on the ‘Ground Floor’ of America’s Next Great Royalty Business”

It’s like the Stansberry folks know what appeals to your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe… and they just can’t get enough of our coverage. Every time I turn around lately they’re teasing and promoting a different kind of “royalty” company. And I loves me some royalties. Royalty companies are pretty well understood by most investors — […]

“Ellis White’s $12 Billion Oil Map” revealed, plus some portfolio updates and thoughts

For our Friday File fun today I’ve got a couple udpated thoughts and check-ins on some companies that I follow and have written to you about before, but I also always like to toss in a teaser solution as we go along — so first we’ll have a look at the latest pitch from Keith […]

“Real Gasoline Without Oil” for 90% Returns?

Sean Brodrick is touting a company that can create much cheaper gasoline — and, of course, he’d like you to sign up for his Oxford Resource Explorer newsletter to learn all about it. So he provides some hints and clues that serve to whet your appetite — enough to make it seem real, and to […]

“A Gold Royalty with a 10% Yield On Deck” (Dan Ferris)

I hate to continue to write about this small company with great frequency, since it smacks of “talking my book” (it’s a major personal holding), but we have received a lot of questions from readers today about Dan Ferris’ latest pitch, so we’re re-running our previous free article about this one. Last time around, it […]

“One Company Poised to Dominate the Wearable Tech Ecosystem”

Michael Robinson has been a big booster of tech ideas for his Nova-X Report, and lately he’s trying to sell his newsletter by using a special report that he says will reveal “The Wearable Tech Investment Opportunity of a Lifetime.” So naturally, Gumshoe readers want to know who it is. The spiel starts off with […]

Crisis and Opportunity’s “Breakthrough technology turns air, sunlight, coal, even water into precious gas”

[ed note: We got a lot of questions about this pitch after we solved a different DeHaemer teaser yesterday, so we've brought it up for all to see again. The stock spiked up in the Spring, a few months after this article first ran back in January, but has come back down to a bit […]

Circular T336, Idaho’s “Wonder Vein” and the $2 Company Leading the “New Era of American Power”

Christian DeHaemer has a new ad out about a revolutionary new form of energy that he says will net you massive gains thanks to a “wonder vein” energy discovery in Idaho. It’s really not about this “wonder vein,” though — the discovery of this fuel in Idaho is perhaps a big deal for other companies […]

Gold “Disappearing” For 300 Years? Badiali says own these “‘Gold Banks’ and Miners that Will Benefit Most from Higher Gold Prices”

Matt Badiali has a new promo out for his S&A Resource Report, and it’s all built on the eventual resurgence of gold. He teases a few stocks for us, and we’ll get to identifying them in a moment — but first, he goes through the long rationale for gold’s rise over the next five years […]

Karim Rahemtulla’s “Compass” Points to a “$14 Billion Jackpot” and “Summer Oil Gusher”

Karim Rahemtulla is pitching a newsletter called The Resource Millionaire — I haven’t heard of this one, but it looks like it probably is just their replacement for the Oil & Energy Confidential service that he launched last year and that has disappeared from their website. So perhaps that one didn’t catch on, despite Rahemtulla’s […]

What’s “JFK’s Secret Currency” as teased by Byron King?

We see absurd hyperbole every day here at Stock Gumshoe, with promises of stocks that double or massive “free income” from various “top secret” trading strategies or… well, you know the drill, you get most of those same emails. So after swimming in this sea of hype for almost a decade, I sometimes forget just […]

Hilary Kramer’s “Safest, Smartest, Most Profitable Way
 To Invest In New Technologies”

“How a $5 million technology can save airlines 
$23.14 billion over the lifetime of a single airplane… “Airlines stand to make as much as a 459,900% return on investment from buying this technology…” “And yet, as I’m about to show you, the first wave of profits will NOT be in the airlines….” Those lines are from Hilary Kramer, who’s […]

Casey’s “After Years of Waiting, This Rare 5x Investment Is a Buy Again”

This teaser pitch just started running a day or so ago, and lots of folks are asking about it … and the folks at Casey Research are effectively using this same teaser pitch to try to sell two different newsletters. The first questions I got about this came yesterday morning, when readers were asking about […]

Paul Goodwin’s “My No. 1 China Stock” Pick

Paul Goodwin edits the Cabot China and Emerging Markets report, which is really the only surviving China-focused newsletter I can think of from a big publisher (most publishers had such a letter during the China bull run in the mid-late 2000s, but many of them disappeared in recent years as China got to be as […]

“The Second Coming… Documented Miracle Happening in 32 States”

I’m going to keep this one very brief today … spent most of the day in a dentist’s chair, but I couldn’t resist this ad from Dr. Kent Moors pitching his Energy Advantage newsletter. So there’s a hint for you: If you want to get my attention, reference your investing idea as “the second coming.” […]

IRM(72), The “Second Income Plan”, and other “secrets”

These kinds of secret income pitches get sent around all the time, and that’s been true ever since Stock Gumshoe started publishing in 2007 — some of our very first articles were about deciphering the “secrets” behind schemes described as “801k Plans” (because they’re “twice as good as 401k plans“) and other terms that are […]

“Blue Blood” — Which “Tiny Biotech Owns Only Source of Rare Cancer-Curing Chemical?”

The following article originally appeared on February 11, 2014 — several readers have asked about the “blue blood” pitch for this “cancer cure” (there’s a reason why we use quotes there) so we’re putting it on top of the page in case you’re curious. My opinion on this one is unchanged, I’m still pretty skeptical […]
