Weiss’ “My #1 Top-Ranked Stock in the World”

A good headline, right? That caught the attention of a LOT of Gumshoe readers over the last several days, following the flurry of ads that Martin Weiss began running for his Martin’s Ultimate Portfolio service in the middle of last week. So let’s try to figure out what his “#1 Top-Ranked Stock” is, shall we? […]

Martin’s Ultimate Portfolio

Uses Weiss’ stock safety ratings and performance ratings to try to maintain a risk-averse portfolio of safer stocks and ETFs. Applied to a real portfolio with some of Martin Weiss’ own money, which is put to work the day after trade alerts are issued. Print this

Can You Actually Earn “Royalties” From Amazon, Netflix and the Internet’s Top Retailers?

I’m wearing my “fix some technical screwups” hat today, so haven’t gotten a full new article written — but we have had a long line of questions about the misleading “Internet Royalties” teaser from The Wealth Advisory, so I’m going to re-share that one. My initial solution for this teaser pitch appeared at the tail […]

“One Device to End All Disease … And It Costs Less Than $50″

This article was originally published on August 13, 2013, around the time this teaser ad pitch was first circulated. The ad is still largely the same today and is circulating heavily again, and it is clearly still teasing the same company, so we’re just re-posting this article for all our newer readers who have questions… […]

What’ the “Triple Play Red Bulletin” Tattoo Removal Stock from WSD Insider?

“As Ebola dominates the news, another epidemic quietly runs amok on U.S. soil. “It’s the proliferation of tattoos. “45 million Americans are ‘tatted,’ but nine million of them wish they weren’t. “Yet while they’d like nothing better than to remove their hated tattoos, they’re afraid of the pain and cost of conventional treatment. “That’s all […]

“Real Gasoline Without Oil” for 90% Returns?

This article originally appeared on July 17, 2014 around the time the teaser pitch from the Oxford Club folks started circulating. The ad is circulating heavily again and we’re getting a lot of questions about it, so we re-post it here for your information… the ad seems unchanged since we first saw it, and the […]

“Phase 2 of the Bakken Bonanza Is Underway”

Looking for a play on oil right now? No, no one else is either — but perhaps that means it’s a good time to take a little gander. Oil prices have been falling since June thanks to a glut of supply that’s been so substantial, with rapidly increasing US production and boosts from Libya and […]

Stephen Leeb’s “favorite stock for the rest of 2014″ in High Performance Computing

Dr. Stephen Leeb is teasing us about a “quantum leap” company in high performance computing — he says it’s his “favorite stock for the rest of 2014″ and that it is becoming a major force in the hot “big data” space as well. So what is “The Breakthrough High Performance Computing Company Being Kept ‘Top-Secret’ […]

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 […]

“The Fastest Growing Entertainer You’ll Never Admit to Knowing”

“You’re about to discover the details on my favorite stock. “Not because it’s cool (it is), not because the company makes a ton of money (they do), but because their growth model has almost no end in sight. “They’re growing so fast because they’re filling an age old need and charging a premium for it. […]

“Best Energy Stocks Under $1″ from Kent Moors … and Some Updates

I’ve got a few thoughts on stocks I follow and on a portfolio move I made today to shave my risk profile a little bit, but first I thought I’d take a quick gander at the latest teaser pitch from Dr. Kent Moors. He’s pitching is Micro-Energy Trader, the small-cap portfolio he runs in an […]

What’s Nick Hodge’s “Oscar of Innovation” corrosion-fighting stock?

Nick Hodge consistently finds and recommends (and, at least indirectly, promotes) little tiny companies with cool-sounding and important-sounding technologies for his Early Advantage newsletter. And Angel Publishing teases and advertises his stuff more aggressively than some publishers, so I get asked about it all the time. These stocks are too small to absorb a lot […]

“SEC Lifts ‘Blackout’ … Unlocks access to a $3.2-billion solar portfolio” (Wall Street Daily)

This appears to be the “hot” story of the day, given the number of alert Gumshoe readers who have been forwarding it along (you can alway submit your teasers, too, or forward them to ILoveStockSpam[at]gmail.com — the more the merrier!) — it’s from Wall Street Daily and is selling their Publisher’s Series as a quarterly […]

“Five Times More Profitable Than Apple with Zero Competition”

Does that headline sound familiar? If you’ve been treading the boards here at the Gumshoe Theater for a couple months or more, then it might well — the folks at the Cabot Stock of the Month Report used almost the same headline to tout their last idea. Which isn’t to say that they’re still pushing […]

Friday File: VIC Impressions, Altius, Seadrill and “How to make Netflix pay YOU ‘Internet Royalties’ for EVERY movie it rents”

I always get a lot of food for thought when I go to the Value Investing Congress, so I’ve got a teaser solution and some updates for your Friday File enjoyment but I thought I’d start with some musing about the Congress ideas that percolated to the top for me on the train ride home… […]

What are Sid Riggs’ “Mega Spark” Energy Stocks?

During the last few days when I was traveling to and reporting from the Value Investing Congress for the Irregulars (some great presentations, by the way, my notes from day one and day two are up now and I’m hoping to get some more thinking time in regarding these ideas soon), the most-requested teaser for […]
