Starting Feb 5: “6 Events In 2010 Could Reshape Your Future”

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, January 7, 2010

“6 Events In 2010 Could Reshape Your Future
“And Give You a One-Way Ticket to Unending Wealth…

“Today’s your ONE shot at the GOOD LIFE — the ultra-wealthy life — from 6 key events I predict for 2010.

“Many years from now, your family could remember your swift action today as the start of their unending wealth.

“Read on to see how the first event, on Feb. 5, 2010, could begin your incredible wealth.”

That’s how Patrick Cox opens the new ad for his Breakthrough Technology Alert — and it might sound a bit familiar. I’ve written about somewhat similar ads from him a couple times over the last year and a half or so, all of them pegged to some development in one of his targeted companies, and most of them teasing the same several stocks in the stem cell, regenerative medicine, and similar “breakthrough biotech” sectors.

But this ad is a little bit different, and it focuses on a different key stock, so I thought I’d give it a look.

The last couple times Patrick Cox sent out similar types of ads they were built around Michael West speeches and press releases — he’s the CEO of one of the stem cell companies and one of the real breakthrough scientists in stem cell research, and we’ve talked that one to death — you can see the most recent article about them here, from back in September, and it seems that’s probably still one of the favorite stock picks.

But today I want to look at the next headliner for the stem cell ads — the stock is already jumping like crazy, probably thanks almost entirely to this ad campaign, but it does indeed have a February 5 event upcoming. Here’s how Cox teases the idea of regenerative medicine:

“The Profit Revelation of a Generation: The Countdown to Friday, Feb. 5, 2010

“What you’re about to see is already happening. It can positively impact every life on the planet — and make a few folks like you unstoppably wealthy.

“Now here it is…

“Scientists are close to figuring out how to make the body heal itself.”

And then he gets into his first prediction, this February 5 event:

“THE IMPORTANT DETAILS: How Feb. 5, 2010 Could Change Lives and Fortunes Forever…

“My sources tell me that on Fri., Feb. 5, 2010 the chairman of the company behind much of this work will make an announcement for investors, the press, and market analysts…

“This chairman (who I’ll introduce to you in just a moment) will cover his firm’s ‘roadmap’ for 2010 and the years ahead. My sources report he has some amazing news to share…

“To put this ‘roadmap’ in context — it could prove to be on par with Albert Einstein telling his peers about The Theory of Relativity — months before he went public with it.

“I fully expect this company’s share price to rocket immediately after the call.

“But it gets better… because this chairman’s company is close to OFFERING THEIR WORK TO THE PUBLIC… possibly as early as 2010…

“You see, this company has a ‘toolbox’ of cure technology with limitless potential…

“It’s shocking just how many ailments stand to disappear due to this technology…

“Right now, for example, these researchers are working on a way to slow one of the leading causes of blindness.

“When you consider the market cap of this company is less than $100 million — you have potential for AT LEAST 25x gains as the company rockets into history…

“And that’s a wildly conservative profit estimate…”

So that sounds good, right? But this company is apparently the target of not one, but two different February 5 breakthrough predictions … here’s the second one:

“2010 Prediction #2: Feb. 5, 2010 — News About the Age-Reversal Spray Ready to Make You Rich

“The same chairman giving the presentation on Feb. 5 will also reveal independent test results on a product of his that’s just about ready to hit the market.

“Right now, his company has a spray in a bottle that destroys wrinkles. It’s not makeup and it’s not simply a cosmetic fix.

“All you do is spray it regularly on and you’ll eventually look years younger — without ever leaving your home, without any surgery, without any injections. It’s fast and simple…

“I know folks (including the wife of a famous political figure) who have already secretly used this spray.

“The Miracle Cells Fueling Your Unending Wealth – Look at This Demonstration of
Just One Possible Use…

“Botox injections can run $1,000 or more and plastic surgery sometimes costs tens of thousands – but this amazing spray might sell for hundreds of dollars, and be a bargain.

“Now here’s the best part – what does it cost this amazing company to produce the spray? Pennies per unit. The margins will be astounding. The profits will change lives.

“Take a look at the results. (This data comes from independent tests just made public… Roll cursor over each image to see in larger detail.)

“The profits from this simple face spray alone could make millionaires from those who act on this tiny company NOW. Will you become one too? Today’s your chance…

“It gets better. This company also just hired the marketing firepower to help bring their first product to the public.

“This report, from just weeks ago, has the details — ‘[Name] has been a key corporate executive with responsibilities for marketing, R&D and sales at…Neutrogena, Colgate-Palmolive and Gillette…’

“If the mainstream press knew what was going on it would be on the cover of every magazine. Feb. 5, 2010 could very well be the day an epic profit windup begins — when this chairman I’m describing to you here makes his shocking presentation…”

OK, now the stuff about rebuilding the heart, and fighting disease … that’s nice, sure, but if you can get rid of wrinkles? Name your price, and don’t worry about health insurance reimbursement. Allergan has already proven that people are wiling to inject poison into their forehead, and pay through the nose for it, so I guess the sky’s the limit!

So who is this little sub-$100 million company that could be changing the world starting on February 5? I thought you’d never ask! This is …

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) — shares have been jumping like mad this week, up about 25% just yesterday, so yes, it could be that either folks are doing their own gumshoeing or Cox got a lot of enthusiastic new subscribers. This one has swung wildly over the past two years, roughly between 20 cents and $1.20, it’s getting close to 80 cents as I type. This crazy week puts it in an uptrend, according to the free trend analysis from MarketClub (click here to see it yourself).

ISCO is indeed planning to hold a webinar to discuss their 2010 plans on February 5 — they’ve posted that fact on their website, but haven’t yet released any details (and no, I don’t know who that top secret source is who told Cox it would be “amazing news.”) And this is indeed a teensy company (market cap around $40 million), and has at times been an extremely news-driven and hype-driven stock, so it could easily move one direction or another based on that webinar. Of course, it’s already jumped thanks to Patrick Cox, I imagine, and it may well jump because it’s getting attention in this space, too, so predicting a move in a teensy stock is not exactly a wild conjecture … it’s predicting which direction it will move next time that’s tougher.

And they really are planning a skin care line based on their parthenogenic stem cells — the person they hired to launch it is Raulee Marcus, who did indeed work at those companies teased. They announced the status of the “launch strategy” in December, including the following quote from the President of Lifeline Skin Care, the ISCO subsidiary that will be developing these products:

“Early indications are that the skin care product, developed through the efforts of the ISCO scientists who created Parthenogenic Stem Cells, has unique characteristics for skin rejuvenation. Our next step is to validate these findings through independent testing and execute our product launch “

They also sell cells and media through their Lifeline Cell Technology subsidiary, but the core business is “developing therapeutic products from parthenogenic stem cells,” they are currently most advanced in retinal therapies, and also focused on diabetes and liver diseases. But it will, of course, be a long long time before you’re getting your macular degeneration fixed with stem cells — they still have press releases out stating that they plan to do human trials on this in 2009, but as far as I can tell the only pre-clinical work on this during the past year was on animals, and specifically on using donated human corneal cells to improve the results of a more effective kind of laser eye surgery (they say the stem cells they’ve developed can do this too, but this test didn’t use their manufactured corneal cells). I imagine they’re trying to get approval to test this in humans and to use the manufactured (instead of donor) cells, but don’t know how far along they are.

ISCO is focused on one specific kind of technology, they develop parthenogenic stem cells, which means that they create stem cells using unfertilized human eggs — they argue that this type of stem cell eases problems with rejection from the immune system and that it eases the moral qualms brought on in some by the use of embryonic stem cells.

I don’t know if ISCO’s approach will end up being a dominant one in the stem cell space, but of course there are no really dominant companies in this space yet and the tiny pioneers needn’t dominate in order to eventually become profitable. The science is extraordinarily new still, I’d imagine that if you’re betting on stem cells and regenerative medicine you’re probably better off spreading your eggs into several different baskets — in addition to earlier speculation about some of Patrick Cox’s other picks in this space from September when he called a “Tipping Point, and, earlier, when a November 2008 announcement launched your “wealth legacy”, we’ve seen other teasers recently in the sector, too, including those for Geron and Cytori Therapeutics. I’m certainly no expert on the science and have not been an active stem cell investor, but I’m sure some of you out there are — feel free to share your wisdom with a comment below.

If the past is prologue, the specific dates like that February 5 webinar (or the press conferences and presentations he’s similarly teased in the past) aren’t quite as world-changing in themselves, or even as stock-changing, as the ads might make them sound … the world usually changes a bit slower than that, and there’s rarely a single tipping point. I wouldn’t argue against stem cells, or even against ISCO, but I’d hesitate to wager too much on a key date that serves as much as anything else (probably more) as a way to let the ad copywriters put some urgency behind their words.

And Cox teased a few other ideas based on those “six events in 2010,” too, I’ll look over those clues and try to share some other ideas with you next time. In the meantime, if you’ve subscribed to the Breakthrough Technology Alert, click here to review it for us and let us know what you thought — most of the reviews (only a few in at this point) have been positive so far, but subscriber Tor suggested something back in a September review that sounds suspiciously like wisdom: “After the hype of a newsletter, wait for the stock to return to a lower level before buying.”

Dear Sir; I enjoyed reading your website. Today I encountered a tease about T “The China Bubble Is Ready to Pop” By Jeff Clark The Chinese growth miracle is hogwash. At least, that’s the opinion of famed short seller Jim Chanos – who is most noted for uncovering the fundamental flaws with Enron. In a recent report put out by his hedge fund, Chanos compared the credit expansion in China to the U.S. subprime market and the housing boom before they went bust. “It’s Dubai times 1,000,” he says. Forbes has also joined the “bearish on China” party… A recent… Read more »

Cytori, which I mentioned above and sniffed out for a teaser a while back, got another big bump this am from an FDA approval for their fat grafting device — that means it has just about doubled since the pick was teased, not quite the 9,000% returns projected just yet, but pretty damn good to start. There are at least several newsletters on board with this one now, it’s getting quite a bit of buzz.

I was lucky enough to access Patrick cox’s article,at the nick of time the other day,found the analysis compelling,felt a good vibe and took a chance at the opening bell and bought all 6 of his picks in that teaser article. I’m never an impulsive investor, but something felt right….you’d have to read the analysis. It was well done. Anyway, by the end of the day I was up 20%…which has held in the last 3 days. The picks are about stem cell research,plus one in the nuclear energy field. Should I preempt your next article about it and tell… Read more »

This is a comment about NNVC, one of the six stocks listed from the Breakthrough Technology Report. I have been covering this company since 2006 when it was trading at about 10c a share. It ran to 3.75 and then fell all the way under 50c in 2009. At that point I started pounding the table for my readers to get in on this company and their new paradigm for eradicating viral diseases in humans and animals. My target is $100.00 a share within four years. I have documented on my site why and how that target is reasonable and… Read more »

A search of ISCO yielded this excerpt from The Daily Mail re: “Stem cell Facelifts, “Instead of cutting and stretching the skin, the new treatment takes fat and regenerative stem cells from the flabby parts of the body and injects them to fill out the patient’s face.” The article goes on to say that the procedure in the doctor’s office take about five hours. There was no mention of the “spritz” option.

If you are at this site, you know to expect answers and to get them for whatever price you choose to or are able to pay for the service Travis provides. If you don’t like the service, don’t visit the site and if you don’t want input from others, certainly don’t read the comments. Do I like reading through the childish crap — no. I have a 3 year old.

I picked key words like “Feruary 5 2010 stock” and hit Google. Here I am. I now have my answer. It has raised my confidence in researching. So thanks Tom. I feal much better about choosing stock than I did with my first pick… Um… AIG. And thanks GumShoe.

Guys, I’ve been following stem cells for over ten yrs and you can see how the story has evolved by following the research of expert scientists or by following the stock price. What you don’t seem to understand is that there are many problems (aka opportunities)when it comes to putting stem cels into the body. Overcoming these problems takes time so that the FDA can allow their administration (Safety, Safety, Safety. A phase 1 trial costs about 5 million, a phase 2 trial costs about 10-15 million, and a phase 3 costs 50-100 million. Plus you need to keep the… Read more »

Your comments were well-taken until you got carried away with:”they stifle gas mileage technology that already exists,as a kit you install ,which gets your car 100 miles per gallon. auto manufacturers can make cars to get that mileage if they wanted to ,or were allowed to.” That is an utter crock. I assume by “kit” you are referring to the dozens of on-board hydrogen generators populating the internet. The simple fact is, if they really worked everyone would have them. Do you honestly believe that if Ford could advertise that their Fusion gets 100 mpg while the Chevy Malibu only… Read more »

Nothing like seeing the names of little-known, illiquid companies posted for just anyone to see. Are you careless… or just trying to inflate the stock price? Either way, I’ll be talking to BTR’s customer service on Monday. And if it starts to look like you’re trying to front-run the stock, I will be contacting the SEC.

Well, if BTR lets their reports get republished by the companies they cover — as stockcrazy10 noted, and as actually happens with some frequency — it’s a little silly to worry about others finding out about them. Of course, the folks at Lightbridge might have republished it without permission, I suppose. And as for our purpose here, and what happens to the stocks I write about — look at a chart for ISCO for an example of what influence Stock Gumshoe might possibly have on share prices.

Do you seriously imagine that with an internet audience of zillions someone is gonna whisper privately in your ear for $600 bucks ???? My chick jumped into bed with another guy….do I blame him for taking the opportunity or her for the betrayal. Adjust your anger focus and accept that ‘perhaps’ it was you that was dumb. Move on,…. learn from your mistakes, mature into a big boy (?) and enjoy the better future youve certainly paid for.

I don’t subscribe to Clark’s Advanced Income but I did pay $3k for his Short Report and over the past year following his advice and picks I have lost about 80% of what I invested.

And I do mean lost. When you play options, they expire WORTHLESS. There’s no holding on and hoping your stock will eventually come back.

I have stopped listening to his “I just don’t understand how this market is staying up” ramblings.

I did not have any luck with selling naked options on oil refining companies or on others that Clark advised on the Advanced Income last year. For UNG I almost ended up buying the contracts while it was crashing down. I subscribed to his short report and at three months trial period, I cancelled it.
The latter half of 2009, he was just rambling why the market was staying up.
