Energy & Scarcity Investor – Agora Byron King
Byron’s strange picks without regard to technical analysis.
Returns in reverse purchase order: +15.50, +63.57, -61.31, -85.05, -58.11, -57.17, -68.18, -67.00, -56.85, -63.75, -78.38, -74.23, -80.26, -58.26, -62.22, -77.47, & -62.86%.
Byron is loathe to sell anything and as you can see above, his portfolio really hurt his investors. Don’t know why he does not at least have stop loss orders in place. Stupid!

PURCHASED THE WHOLE AGORA FINANCIAL RESERVE AND THEN CANCELED. LOST SIGNIFICANT DOLLARS OVERALL. OF COURSE, I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY CHOICES AS THEY CAN PICK OUT THEIR WINNERS FOR ADS. FOR EXAMPLE. THE GEOTHERMAL THESIS HE HAS BEEN PREACHING FOREVER ,IT SEEMS. I BOT ALL 5 COMPANIES $,5,000.00 IN EACH AND IF I SOLD NOW WOULD LOSE ALL INVESTMENT.(HEY,IF ONE DOES NOT SELL THERE IS NO LOSS,RIGHT?)AS GUMSHOE IRREGULAR I AM NOT DOING MUCH BETTER BUT A LOT MORE ENTERTAINMENT FOR MY DOLLARS AND TIME. THANKS

Have only been subscribed for about 7 months now but I’m sitting on one 200%+ gain, three 100%+ gains, one 80% gain, one 40% gain and have closed out a few “modest” 40-50% gains so far. No losers yet but it has been a major bull market for commodity stocks over the time that I’ve been subscribed. The review that mentioned Byron’s lack of using trailing stops is accurate…and that hurt me with some picks in his Outstanding Investments newsletter with the ’08 crash and the Gulf spill. However many of those stocks did recover from their falls and some… Read more »

Bought service in February of 2011. Have lost 60%, 38% and 20% in the 3 stocks he recommended. Another stock he advised on buying in an article, I found out through research that he had recommended it 9 months earlier. Within 3 weeks he put a sell on it – thus the boasting of 1000% + gains was bogus.

I have taken “Outstanding Investments” for some over one year. I wish that I had saved my $$$. I think that I get more value from more mainstream publications. I am not inclined to go to “Energy and Scarcity.” Joan in Houston

Like stock picking in general, your gains/losses in EI will heavily depend on when you invest. BK looked a genius with his natural resource bent through most of the last half decade or so. Then a lot of these picks looked like a nice hole to throw your money in since the junior markets have turned lower. And lower. King does a good job of making you understand at least the bare minimum of the resource investment concepts, which makes it a fascinating letter. However, he frequently doesn’t update on certain stocks, which can be frustrating as your losses continue… Read more »
